JUDGE SHAW CITES 1UTHORITY
FDR STATEMENT ABOUT KTHEISM
Reiterates Charge That
Agnostic And Atheists
Are Sent Out From
XI,o Cleveland Star has received a
communication from Judge Thomas J.
Shaw of Greensboro, who held a term
of Superior court in Shelby last week,
in which he gives figures to prove that
universities are sending out students
who are atheists and agnostics. It will
be remembered that he made the state
ment during the first week of court
in Shelby that forty per cent of the
students turned out by the universities
of the country are atheists or agnos
tb and his statement was bitterly
challenged by members of the faculty
of the University of North Carolina
and by a number of newspapers ot
the state. Now Judge Shaw cites fig
ure? to show the basis of his remarks
and is willing to meet his critics any,
It seems that certain professors at
Chapel Hill and some newspaper men
in the state have never seen or heard
of the publication of any statistics as
to the percentage of agnostics, etc.,
among the graduates from the univer
sities and high colleges of our country
At their request I give two instances
which ought to convince any' fair
minded man, of average intelligence,
that sueh publications have been made
and there are others, but of course
any sensible person will understand
that these Writers are not attempting
to give the percentage of any parti
cular institution, but only an average
The fir.-t is from a pamphlet en
titled “Modern Education at the
Cross-Roads” by M. H. Duncan, M. A.,
Vale, published by the Bible institute,
Colportage association, Chicago, and
is as follows:
"When the educational leaders turn
ed their backs on Biblical Christian
ity, they not only made it impossible
for the schools to elevate morais, but
they made these schools direct agen*
ties for the destruction of morals, ana
if the present influence in the school*
continues for another ten years, the
mass of men and women will have
test their faith ;n the Bible and Bi
ble Christianity, which we all know
is the source of moral standards. Even
today it is a rare thing to find a I
jpunc man from the colleges or uni
versities who accepts in full the teach
ings of the Bible. Just this: morning
*e were reading an extract from a let
ter from a young Lutheran, who had
been in college only a few months, to
hif former pastor, in which he flays
|}at Fie can no longer accept the an
tfquated teachings of that church. He
indicates that his increased knowledge
bad caused him to feel that a more
lilieral interpreation of the Scriptures
»a.< necessary. This young man is
only one of ten thousand in the col
tepds and universities who are having
'neir faith destroyed* by infidel teach
ers who are the more dangerous be
tause they still wear the cloak ot
Christianity and come to these young
People as angels of light. In the name

a volume entitled ‘American Men and
Science' which he says, included the
names of ‘practically every American
who may properly be called a scien
tist.’ There were fifty-five hundred
names in the book. He selected one
thousand names as representative o*
the fifty-five hundred, and addressee
them personally. Most of them, he
said were teachers in schools cf high
er learning. The names were kept con
fidential. Upon the answers received,
he asserts that over half of them
doubt or deny the existence of a per
sonal God and a personal immortal
ity, and he asserts that unbelief in its
proportion to prominence, the per
centage < f unbelief being greatest
among the most prominent. Among
biologist, believers in a personal God
numbered less than thirty-one per cent
while believes in a personal immortal
ity numbered only thirty-seven per
“He also questioned the students in
nine colleges of high rank and from
one thousand answers received, 07 per
cent of which were from students be
tween eighteen and twenty, he found
that unbelief increased from 15 per
ent in the freshman class up to 40 to
45 per cent among the men who grad
uated. On page 280 of this book we
read ‘The students’ statistics show
that young people enter college pos
sessed of the beliefs still accepted,
more or less perfunctorily, in the av.
erage home of the land, and gradually
abandon the cardinal Christian be

belief he attributes to the influence
of the persons ‘of high culture under
whom they studied.’

To Preach Special
Men’s Sermon Sunday
Capt. J. L. Hancock, conductor on
the Southern railway division which
passes Shelby, is holding a wonderful
revival meeting at Pleasant Hill
Baptist church, six miles southeast
of Shelby and great crowds arc at
tending. Capt. Hancock is a fine ora
tor and when he warms up in the
pulpit, he talks straight gospel in the
Billy Sunday fashion. On Wednesday
when he preached on “Life’s Burd
ens,” fully two thirds of the congre
gation went forward for prayer.
“The Price of a Hair Cut in a Wo
man’s Barber Shop” is the subject of
his sermon which will be preached to
men only on Sunday afternoon at 4
o’clock. There will be nothing ob
jectionable to a female at this service,
but Mr. Hancock prefers to give the
men the benefit of the seats at this
He has just closed a three weeks
meeting at Elloree, S. C., and goes
next Monday to Burkemont, near
Morganton where he starts a meet
ing to continue a week.
Capt. Hancock is one of the most
popular men on the Southern railway.
Each summer he ge*s a leave of ab
sence from the company and takes his
vacation in preaching the gospel.
It is quite probable that he will
move to Shelby and make his head
quarters, since the railroa 1 is put
ting in a “Y” in South Shelby for the

Waco School Opens
Monday August 17
(Special To The Star.)
Waco, Aug. 12.—Principal I. ,T.
Kellum, who spent the summer on the
coast, has recently returned and is
busy getting things in readiness for'
the opening of school Monday Aug
ust 17. A very able corps of teachers
has been selected and indications
point toward a successful school year.
Mr. Kellum is insisting that every
pupil should enroll the first day. A
good beginning is half the battle.
A tuition charge of $1.00 per month
for high school pupils and $2.00 per
month for grade pupils will be made
this year for two months—the first
two months that pupils are actually
in school. This tuition applies to all
pupils not in the Waco district and
becomes necessary because of the ex
pense incurred by tiie school in tak
ing care of its increased enrollment. ;
The vote in the election held on
July 27 to determine whether or not;
the Beam and Buelah districts should
be consolidated with the Waco dis
trict showed a majority of 85, in favor I
of consolidation. This was a much
larger majority than that in the elec- j
tion held last -fjfll, which wa v' annull
ed because of a technicality In the 1
tition calling for the election.
The list of seventh grade pupils
successfully passing the county ex
amination for entrance into the high
school follows: Zella Goforth, Mildred
Hord, Kate Whitworth, Arthur
Stroup, Marvin Putnam, Clayton
Cline, J. A. Black, Viola Black, Eve-:

Summio Patterson. Charged With
Counterfeit. Tried to Raise *>2
Itill and Pass it as Twentv.
Summie Patterson, white man aged
about .'15 years, wasbeing held in jail
here this week awaiting a hearing in
Federal court on the charge of coun
terfeiting. An attempt at passing a $2
bill for twenty dollars resulted in his
arrest Monday by city officers.
Patterson, who has been at Way.
nesvillc for some time, was in Shelby
this week and last. Sometime Monday
he entered the store of John Queen
in South Shelby and attempted to pass
the marked-up bill. However, he
failed in his purpose and the store pro
prietor becoming suspicious notified
the officers. Later in the evening
he was apprehended, the bill, crude,
hand-made stamps and other coun
terfeiting accessories being found on
his person. Before United States
Commissioner John P. Mull Tuesday
he was bound over to Federal court
under bond of $500. Immediately after
his arrest Federal officers became in
terested and Deputy Coin was here
investighting the matter Tuesday.
The stamps were cut by hand out
of rubber with the figures carved with
jagged edges. Apparently using white
ink Patterson had used the stamp with
the figure “20” on each corner of the
bill, attempting, to obliterate the "2’*
in the center. No other money wai>
found on his person and it could not
be learned whether or not he had
atempted to pass any of the raised
bills prior to Monday.
Last week, it is said, Patterson,
considered purchasing an automobile1
from a local dealer, but the transac
tion was never consummated, the deal

Air Cooling System
A long step forward in the theatri
cal circles of Shelby was taken when
the Beam Bros., managing the Prin
cess theatre, installed the Arctic Nu
Air cooling system. The outfit con
sists of two huge suction fans, run
by electric motors, each of which
draws in 40,000 cubic feet of fresh
clean air per minute and distributes
it throughout the building, the used
air finding its way out of the front
of the building. A distinctive feature
is the fact that the machines are set
out in the open air, and consequently
the free flow of tjie ozone is unob
structed by walls. The breezes set in
motion can be felt over the entire
building, and one could easily imagine
himself upon the top of Blowing Rock.
The Princess is at present the only
theatre in North Carolina fitted with
this cooling apparatus and many pa
trons have stated that no theatre in
the several larger towns can surpass
it in coolness.
