Considering a SI License Tax on Au
tomobiles. $25 Monthly Allowance
To Co. K. Discontinued.
At a special meeting of the city
fathers Tuesday night in the City Hal’,
attention was given to a revision of
the city code, especially with a view
t„ that part of the code which provides ;
revenue for privileges and licenses. No ;
new ordinances are under considers-j
tion, hut the board is looking for new
sources of revenue and after going
over the code, instructed City Attor- j
ney O. M. Mull to investigate the state !
revenue act and find out just what
tan be taxed and how much. After he
furnishes his report, the city fathers
will hold another meeting and try to
find a way to collect more revenue by
an increase in license and privilege j
taxes and for new taxes of this nature
where they are found feasible.
It has been suggested that the town j
require a city license plate oh all mo- ;
tor vehicles owned and operated with- j
in the city limits, but since the state
revenue act does not allow the amount
to exceed $1 on passenger cars, it is'
doubtful whether this will raise suffi
cient revenue to justify the effort.
To collect SI on each motor vehicle
would require the town to issue a !:
cense plate which would have to he
paid for out of the SI collected and In
addition to this some clerical help and
book-keeping would be necessary to
keep the records.
No formal request has come from
the merchants as yet, asking the city
fathers to establish a thirdy-minute

Youth Enters Faint
By Local Police
Chief Hamrick and Policeman Hos

Wednesday when they took in charge
a youth, who, in the manner of erring
boys, refused to talk or move for
about four hour- and “played dead”
until the officers revived him with
threats of being placed in jail after
Dr. Gold, county physician, declared
there v.as nothing wrong with him.
The boy, George Painter, aged about
12 years, was thought to be connect
ed with the disappearance of minor
articles recently and he will probably
be taken before the county juvenile

under a house, hut when brought
forth refused to budge and became
limp, in which condition he remain

pronounced all right by a physician.

pany of Shelby has been elected dis
trict director of the North Carolina
Cotton Growers Association, the dis
trict comprising.the counties of Alex

coming to Mr. Blanton and to Cleve

Shelby High Annual
Does Credit To
Senior Class Here
“The Legend,” annual'of the Shelby
High school for 1925 and published by
the Senior class with Nelson Callahan
as editor and Caroline Blatnon as busi
ness manager, reflects credit on the
work of the school as well as the class.
For behind the well-arranged and
presented annual there must have been
some worthwhile instruction. It is,
taking a chance of not being repri
manded, one of the best high school
annuals North Carolina tins' perused
in some time. In fact, there are col
leges that have a senior class issue
not near so creditable.
The Indian theme in artistic design
as name pervades the annual work
throughout, characteristic of early
North Carolina life and pioneer days
and giving the published work of the
class a distinction that is different
and almost worthy of an “a la Shelby’.
Dedicated to Superintendent Griffin
and \V. S, Buchanan, faculty advisor,
it carries an appreciation of the
school board and a tribute to the late
Marion Putnam, member of the
board for 20 years. The photographs
present the high school faculty and
the classes of the high school with
the senior mascot, petite and charm,
ing Nancy Jane Lineberger and the I
various departments ranging on down
from athletics. The editor hopes in his
fof'word “that the chronicle will in
the future refresh the hearts with
happy memories of Shelby High” and
there will undoubtedly be a realiza
tion of the hope considering the suc
cessful appearance of the work.
Perhaps because the school’s best
all-around boy and girl headed the
work of the annual was it such a suc
cess, but it must have been with their
work that was only a link in a chain
of endeavor and instruction mingled
with ability that wrought “The Leg
end." Anyway the entire school is de
serving of congratulations, and few
Shelby homes should be minus a copy
of their published work.

PLANNED FOIL CITY
Spotless Drive Of Cleaning And Paint I
Brush To Be Staged Tor A Week j
By Shelby Civic Clubs.
A “Paint-up and Clean-up Week”
for Shelby is planned for an early date
by the civic department of the Shelby
Woman’s club and by the local Ki
wani's club, the aim of the campaign
being “to make the city as clean as
its cleanest home, and Shelby a spot
less town.” The big factors of the
drive will he the paint and cleaning

ed that Shelby will really come up to
the reputation of being one of West
ern Carolina’s most beautiful towns.
This week members of the Woman’s

regular weekly meeting and definite
plans were made by which the cam

makes the matter of the town’s ap

and such campaigns as the one plan

home town pride in appearance.
Last year a county-wide campaign
was conducted and hundreds of farm
houses and outbuildings were painted,
lawns started and the rural home
made very attractive, perhaps taking j
the county as a whole, more attract
ive than any in the state. Shelby with
all of its new homes has a new ap
pearance that is refreshing to the
eye but many of the old sections are j
suffering in appearance from lack of
attention and there are many spots |
about town that should greatly im- |
prove during the campaign and hun- j
deeds of homes in the town must be
painted, or repainted, to keep the
pace set b ythe rural sections.
The entire town should watch for
the date set for the campaign and as
sist in every way possible.

and representative crowd attended the
stockholders annual meeting of Chim
ney Rock Mountains, Inc, this after
noon at the pavilion to which point the
meeting was moved after it was found
that no other place would comfortably
accommodate the number present. .
The features of the meeting were
the election of 10 directors to serve
for the ensuing year, or until their
successors are qualified, and hear
ing the .reports of the officers for the
past year. The main reports were
those of Treasurer J. II. Thomas, Sec
retary S. E. Elmore and chiefly th»
annual message of President Lucius
The directors elected, all unani
mously, are as “follows: Dr. L. B.

Financing a F'eat.
The report of President Morse tVas
comprehensive and afforded all stock
holders an opportunity to hear of the
many accomplishments of their cor
poration during the past year and
questions were invited at all stages
where additional information, was de
sired upon any particular point.
Among the outstanding feats was
that of financing the contract for
building a solid concrete dam, 101 feet
high, and 585 feet across the top, ac
commodating a scenic highway across
to form a portion of the 27 mile shore
line drive around Lake Lure when
created by the building of the darn
This financing of a body of water cov
ering 1,500 acres and generating 15
1-2 kwh annually, without a cent ot
cost to the parent corporation and
without mortgage on any of the prop
erty outside of that 1,500 acres inun
dated by tiie head waters after the
dam, is completed.
itie main point in tins financing
was the making of a contract with
the Blue Ridge Power company for!
the sale of the future generated hy-* j
dro-eloctric energy at a very advan
tageous figure, which auditors calcu
late will not only retire the cost of
the dam, but completely finance itself
in ten years free and clear, owned by
the parent corporation as a going hy
dro-electric public service corporation
without cost to any stockholder in
Chimney Rock Mountain, Inc., which
now owns all the voting stock of the
subsidiary building the dam.
A Strong Feature.
Another strong feature was that ot
so arranging all the development
work this summer to proceed at full
speed without interfering with traffic
on state highway No. 20, which pass,
cs the site of the dam.
This is accomplished by a short detour
of 3,000 feet ami a half of this is new
permanent highway and every foot of
it in excellent shape. Engineers say
that when traffic is turned into the
detbur two weeks hence that the ac
tual running time around the detour
>vi 11 be three minutes quicker for the
3,900 feet than the present state
highway and equally as good surface.

train on the C. C. and ()., a short din.
tanee from (He Forest City depot this
morning at o’clock.
A coroner’ jury found that Hunt
singer came to his death from being
struck by a train, hut Chief of Police
Putnam of Forest City jjj investigat
ing the affair. The engineer of the
train said that when tie first saw the
body it was lying on the tracks. Per
sons who examined the body within
15 minutes after it was struck by the
train said that it was “stone cold.” In
dicating. said Chief Putnam, that the
man had been dead for some time an
the body would licit have been cold In
so short a time even in the winter.
The door of the depot was fount?
open and showed evidence of having
been forced with a piece of iron. A
railroad spike was found nearby.
According to Chief Putnam, Hunt
singer was seen in Forest City about
midnight. At 1 o’clock he left his wife
with relatives at Harris station, about
15 miles from here, and returned to
his home near the depot. Evidence
showed that he had changed clothes
and eaten a meal. He was to return to
Harris station after changing clothes,
Mrs. lluntsinger said. His car was
parked in his yard. Persons who exam,
ined the body said that a wound on
the face appeared to have been made
with a spike similar to the one found
near the depot door. The body of the
dead man was mangled, however, from
being struck by the train.
Thinks He Was Attacked.
Chief Putnam expressed the belief
that Huntsinger heard someone at the
depot and was attacked by them
when he investigated, killed and his
body placed on the tracks. The body
was some distance from the depot ano
no money or valuables were missing
from the clothing of the dead man.
The dead man is survived by his
wife and several children.

In Use In America
Countcy Spends Eight Millions An
nually For The Purchase And
Maintenance Of Autos.
The economic improvement of mo
tor transportation is emphasized in
report, prepared by the American
commission highway transport* for
submission to the third biennial citO
ferenee of the international chambet
of commerce at Brussels this month,
As made public by the chamber «f
j commerce of the United States thp
j report says Americans now spend $8,
I 000,000,000 annually in the purchase
! and-maintenance of automobiles, “with
| latest figures showing 17,500,000 pas
! senger cars and trucks in use in the
United States, or one to every seven
inhabitants. The wide-spread use of
the motor car has contributed much
.to the Increase of billions of dollars in
the wealth and resources of the
country it finds, pointing out especial
ly the “revolution” this development
has wrought in the life of the farm.
The report states, however, that
mistakes have been made ui the de
velopment of motor transportation in
the United States.
“The functions which it could best
serve and its relation to other trans
portation factors,” it explains, “were
not fully understood at the outset
and it has taken much time and mon
ey to rectify some of the errors. In
ferior highways have been made to
serve where the cost of maintenance
was uneconomically high and traffic
justified their replacement with high
er types. Motor vehicles have been
sold by over enthusiastic nianufae
tuieis or dealers where their use was
not economically justified or where a
different type was warranted. There
has been destrcutive and in some cas
es disastrous competition between the
motor vehicle and th colder establish
ed forms of transportations.
-'Bu( as the development has pro
ceeded it has become evident that mo
tor transportation is a utility which
can render valuable services not alone
in the definite additions, which it
makes in national wealth, but to the
more far reaching effect which it has
upon the social structure and the
standards of living and nationalism,
lhe motor car has performed a sig
nificant function in eliminating sec
tional differences and the manifold
uses of modern highway transporta
tion are welding the nation into a
homogenous whole. The development
of motor transportation which has
taken place in the United States will
inevitably come in other countries.
