Shelby Hospital Placed

In the presence of a great inter
national congress of surgeons and
hospital people at Bellevue-Stratford
Hotel, Philadelphia, Monday, Frank
lin H. Martin, M. D. of Chicago, di- j
rector general of the American Col
lege of Surgeons, officially announced |
the list of approved hospitals up to j
October 1st and in this list appears j
the name of the Shelby Hospital. |
Friends of the local institution are :
gratified over the high recognition
which it merits after strict exami
nat on into its equipment, care of pa
tients and splendid staff of surgeons
Such an honor is sought by all hos
pitals, but many failed to reach this
class to which the Shelby .institu l ion
has attained. It is now recognized as
one of the best equipped institutions
in America for *118 size and the work
which it has been doing is winning
the attention of the medical profes
The list of standard hospitals is
the result of the eighth annual Hos
pital Standardization survey made by j
the American College of Surgeons, ]
including 2,380 hospitals and in pres-;
enting the report Dr. Martin said in j
“This list of approved Hospitals is !
of general interest. The patient can j
more intelligently and more safely
choose a hospital and a doctor when
ill. The young woman with the noble
ambition to become a nurse is as
sisted in her selection of a training
school. The recent medical graduate
eager for more practical experience
seeks the approved hospital for his
intership. Federal, state, municipal I
and philanthropic organizations fre-1
quently consult this list in their se-;
lection of institutions when render- j
ing financial assistance. Already the j
American Railway Association has
urged their 14,000 surgeons to select;
for their patient so far as possible
hospitals approved by the American
College of Surgeons. The United
States Army, Navy, Veterans Bu
reau, Public Health Service, and Na
tional Homes for Disabled Volunteer
Soldiers share enthusiastically in this
program and the a oproved hospitals
of these groups appedr on the list to
day. The American College of Sur
geons appreciates the opportunity to
better hospitals of the United States
and Canada annual'y. Thin movement

economic life of our people. The re
quirements are minimal and funda
mental. They are applicable to any
hospital regardless of size, type or
location. Any institution, ethical and
honest reaching the .standard is ac
ceptable. The public is therefore ask
ing why certain hospitals are not on
The hospitals whose names appear

SHELBY 10 MEET
Local Highs Get Toughest Assign
ment in Section. Game Here Fri
day Afternon with Gastonia.
Two football games with more than
the usual interest are scheduled fcr
“Casey” Morris’ Shelby Highs for the
two coming Fridays. Both games are
with Pat Crawford’s Gastonia eleven.
The first to be played the coming Fri
day afternoon on the city park here
will not count in the state series. How
ever, the game on the following Fri
day with Gastohfa at Gastonia does fig
ure in the state series schedule.
The title series was arranged In
Charlotte Tuesday nieht at a meeting
attended by Coach Morris. A gam»
had already been scheduled with Gas
tonia for the comirtg Friday and sine-,
the first title game with the strong
Crawford squad does not come off for
another week it was decided to play
the game this Friday here.
Gastonia After Title.
Gastonia is being picked over the
state as one of the best bets for the
state championship and Morris’ boys
are naturally up against somethin*
plus something more in their first
game. With a young aiid inexperienced
eleven to start with the Shelby Highs
have not bden counted on strongly in
the state race and a number of those
now playing Will be unable to perform
in the series games according to a rul
ing by Rankin. Knowing that the Gas
tonia crew is labelled for state hon
ors quite a crowd of fans are expect
ed to take in the game here Friday
and the series game next Friday, with
the view of looking over an eleven of
championship calibre. Nevertheless,
ihe machine-like Gastonia squad is not
in for a play-day afternoon in either
fame with Shelby. Morris’ lightweight
little eleven realizes that it is playing
probable champions and intend to
give their all in battle.
The State Series
Asheville; Gastonia, Lenoir, Shel
by and Lattimore are classed in group
1'ou.r. Lenoir and Asheville meet at
Asheville this Friday, and Shelby and
Gastonia meet in the first series tilt at
Gastonia Friday of next week. Latti
more drew a bye for the first round.
In the second round Lattimore will
play the winner of the Lenoir-Ashe
ville contest either on November 3 or
Lenoir, if it beats Asheville, will
meet either Shelby at Lenoir, or Gas
tonia at Hickory on November 13.
Shelby, if it beats Gastonia, will
meet either Lenoir or Asheville or Lat
timore on November 14, while Ashe
ville, if 'it wins its Jirst two games,
will play Gastonia or Shelby at Gas
tonia on November 13.

Jim Jones in Jail Without Rond for
Alleged Attack on 9-Year-old
White Girl Sunday.
Jim Jones, young white man of Shel
by, was remanded to the county jail,
following a hearing before Recorder
John P. Mull Tuesday morning, with
out bond to await a hearing next week
in Superior court on the charge or
criminally assaulting a 9-year-olo
white girl. The alleged assault is said
to have taken place Sunday afternoon
at a spring near the little girl’s home
in Flat Rock, a Shelby suburb. Jorics
denied the charge.
At the preliminary hearing the lit
tle girl took the stand and related the
alleged attack in detail to Solicitoi
Burrus and Judge Mull, identified
Jones, termed as a friend of the fam
ily. The little girl with her sister and
other children were playing at the
spring when Jones came along, she
told the court. Her testimony regard
ing the alleged assault was support
ed in part by the testimony of her
mother and Dr. G. M. Gold, physician
who examined her. However, her tes
timony was not to the effect that *’je
complete assault was committed, al
though the testimony of the physician
regarding bruises and injuries maue
such a possibility.
Jones is a familiar figure in re
corder’s, court, his name, it is said,
having been entered on the blotter
several times in connection with li
quor, and'vthe little girl in her testi
mony stated that he carried a bottle at
me time or tne alleged attack. Severs,*
weeks ago Jones up before the re
corder on a liquor charge told the
court that he was suffering witn a
dread veneral disease in advanced
stages, presumably with the idea ot
avoiding work on the gang.
The arrest was made by city offi
cers Monday and he was placed in
jail and given a hearing Tuesdaj

people being aware of what was tail

Urges Fall Sowing
Of Oats And Vetch
Every farmer in the county who
has not already sown two acres of
oats and vetch or some hay crop fei
each horse and cow on the farm should
plan to do so at once. Fall hay crops
can be sown profitably until the 15th
of November or later.
One of the best mixtures to sow- for
hay is 15 pounds of hairy vetch and
two bushels oats and one-third bushe.
of beardless wheat. The vetch should
be innoculated if it has not been
grown on the land previously. Innoeu
lation is furnished free by the govern
ment. One of the quickest and most
effective ways is to use one peck of
dirt taken from a field that grew
vetch vigorously last year and roll
the seed in this dirt after they have
been dipped in a solution of equal
parts water and molasses. The dirt
and seed should then be mixed with
the oats and wheat and drilled. %
Lets have an honest to goodness
live-at-home program for Cleevland
county this year and raise everything
we use that can be raised on the farm
for our food and feed.
Hairy vetch leads all other legumes,
in feeding value for livestock and fer
tilizing value for the land.
