Roiling Springs High School is to receive $2,000 a year for a period of ten years from the estate of Hot. Jake F. Alexander of Forest City ami St. Petersburg, Fla., who died last week in Florida at the age of 00 years. HU will leaves $32,000 annual income from a valuable piece of ical estate in St. Petersburg, Fla., and this j« equal to an endowment of a half million for these institutions over a period of ten years. The deW of trust incorporating the bequests was received by Rev. J. W. O’Hara, of the Baptist mission board, under whose supervision the schools endowed now operate. The total en dowment includes a lease lor 09 years on a valuable piece of St. Petersburg real estate now bringing in about $32,000 annual income ss Vr. Alexanders Interest The property is under option to be sold between 1937 and 1948 for a sum of $1,190, 000. It is understood in Shelby that Mr. Alexander ha* a third interest in this property rents for nearly $100, 000 a year. Friends of Boiling Springs are wondering if the property is sold for a million and a quarter at which :t is optionee and the Alexander es tate comes into possession of $400, 000. that if the proceeds of Briling Springs will be one sixteenth, the has;« on which the rental is distri buted among the schools. If so, Boil ing Spings would eventually re cede from the sale of the property, which, added to the $2,000 for ten years would be $43,000. This, however is problematical. The bequests from the Income in clude the following: Mars Hill rol 'eg*. $10,000 a year; Alexander schools, inc., at Union Mills, $i0, a year; Baptist orphanage at Thomas yille, $2,000 a year; Boiling Sorings. Academy Boiling Springs, $2,000: and the First Baptist and First Meth od !st churches of Forest City $4,000 each. Th* endowment becomes operative January 1. 1027, and if there is any remainder after the bequests are made it is to go to Mr3. Alexander's wife »nd children. The bequest to Mars Hill, according to Rev< Dr. O’Hnra, will enable that school to enter the Southern Associa tion of Colleges with the highest rat ing. The Alexander schools is an insti tution started only a short time ago by Mr. Alexander and is devpted to education of motherless boys ard girls. Mr. Alexander was GO years old and bad been in failing health for sever al months. He was formerly a prom inent cotton mill owner, lumberman and banker being president of the Alexander National bank at St. Petersburg, trustee o fthe endowment Mr. Alexanders estate is estimated to total $2,000,000.

UMSCAPE PLANS APPROVED FOP CLEVELAND SPRINGS OEVELOPMENT Alfred Marshall Goes Over Preliminary Plans Made By Draper. Eight Miles Of Streets Provided. Lots Of LiberaJ Sizes. Two Golf Courses. I 1 *n~ made by [,. S. Draper, landscape architect for the Cleveland Springs development were approved except for minor changes by Alfred P. Marshall of the firm of E. A. Mar shall and Co. of Clearwater, Fla., Sat urday when .Mr. Marshall with members of the board of directors of tha Cleveland Springs company went ov er the first sketches. Mr. Marshall and Mr. Draper Kpent Several days together walking over the 300 acre tract and studying the contour of the land from every angle. The propose. 1 lake will he eliminated because it is found that there are not enough natural springs to feed such a body of water and that the sloping hillsides would drain in surface water which would keep the lake muddy all the time. Bridle paths have been added and details of the two beautiful Rolf courses have been worked out, one cine hole course south of the present hotel and another nine hole course on the north side of the property on a part of the 26 acres bought from Jar vis Hamrick. In order that the pres ent golf course might be used while the development is under way, the first lots to be offered for sale, lie north of highway No. 20. Six Miles of Road-. According to present plans the de velopment has six miles of roads wind ing through the property. The 340 lots all have road frontage and are of liberal proportions, ranging from 60 feet frontage to 125 feet with dei ths varying from 150 to 300 feet. It i» the opinion of Mr. Marshall that no sidewalks will be built in the proper ty but that the streets which will l.« hard-surfaced will have wish-shaped drains which can be used for pedes trians. a plan similar to that n Biit more Forest, one of the most beu tiful residential developments in th« Asheville section. Of course the prop erty will have water and sewer lines, telephone and light facilities. As soon as the final plans are accepted, con tracts will be let for the grading, etc. Mr. Marshall estimates that it will cost $50,000 to build the beautiful golf courses and 130,000 for the spa 1 clous club bouses which will be loci<.<i on the knoll near John Doggett's pres ent home. It is Mr. Marshall's idea i< have every green sodded with beau tiful grass instead of sand. The cn tour of the land is ideal for golfing as this popular game is to be on*' <>t the best drawing cards for the prop erty, no pains or expense will be spared. I The method of control of the golf courses will be patterned after tht largest and most successful develop ments in the resort sections. Each purchase of a lot has privileges of , the golf course and holds a membt-r ! sbip thereto, such membership allow ing him a vote tn management and control. When the owner of a lot sells his property, his interest in the gbit | course and privileges in the property automatically pass to the purchaser.. Mr. Marshall is well pleased with the progress Mr. Draper and his corps cf assistants are making in the land scraping and is confident that develop meet work can begin at an early dale to be followed by the sale of lots in the early spring. Interested with Mr. Marshall are I his father E. A. Marshall, R. K. Bran don and John Chesnut, jr., all of Clear water, Florida The Cluh Idea.

Insurance Expert To Avoid Fire Waste F. M. Jordon Here on Inspection Trip To Show How To Avoid Holiday Fire Loss. In order to avoid the usual holiday fire waste, F. M. Jordori, deputy in surance commissioner was in She'by Saturday conferring: with Mayor Weathers and Chief Hamrick of the fire department, telling them how to prevent the usual fires that come at this season of the year. He found the general condition of the town in fine shape, but says the merchants shoul ? use extra caution right at this time ; when the records show the heavies: ■ losses during the year in the state, most of the fires originating from de fective electric" wiring of houses an i stores for the Holidays and the ac-. cumulation of trash and rubbish in stores and to the rear of store.-.1 Other very common ways in which' f.res originate are the dumping of hot ashes in wooden boxes, and defective j stove flues. Citizens ar easked to ob serve extra precaution at this set son of the yenr when holiday trad ing rush is on and trash and ruhbisr, are allowed to accumulate more than ordinarily. In the homes and stnu ? where electric wiring has been done by other people than electricians who people for temporary use by peonlo who do not know the code require ments, fires often result in Christmas trees and in stores where this special virirf has been dofte. Mr. Self, street over-seer says his job of having streets cleaned would be faciiiated if the merchants would i place all trash and rubbish to the’ rear of their stores so that lose pa pers will not blow around over the' streets and make an unsightly an-, pearance. He is — aking every possible ; effort to keep Te streets and alleysj clean, but it is impossible to do so, when lose papers are thrown careless-; Jy on the ground where the wind car. : scatter them everywhere. If the mcr- J chants will follow this suggestion it will not only enable the street de partment to keen the streets cleaner but avoid the Hanger of fire. This j suggestion on the part of Mr. Self meets the hearty approval of Mr. Jordon, insurance commisioner. Slow Sorghum John Griffin took his five-gallon jug over to the sorghum mill early .

Saturday Good Shopping Day Streets Crowded Flora Early In Morning l'util Last Store Closed At Night. Yuletidc Buying. “They came, they looked, they i bought”—those Saturday shoppers in Shelby. Local merchants term Saturday one of the best trading days of many months. It was as the last Saturday before Christmas, and Saturday is the big day with buyers. A touch of real Christmas weather came with early morning and added to the throngs a vim in swarming from store ro st re corr.plettir.g the gift list. All day long it lasted and late at night when the la t shopper had departed it was evi dent in many stores by the vacant spots that the Christmas crowd had j conic ami gone. The sleet and rain j danpered the ardor some late in the day, but did not hold back the shop- j pers. Like public officials prepare a big speech, those merchants got ready j for Christmas. And a spea^r never ■ it took with the people. Just so with! knows until after it is over just how a merchant. They did not know early Saturday morning, but they are wise today. Display windows had been arrang ed with c.T'e and every artistic thought employed. Stocks were placed j in such a manner as to catch the eye! of shoppe.it none too enthusiastic and clerks were on tip-t ie awaiting. Mon-j day and Tuesday of last week bosi- j ness began to perk up. As the end of the week came nearer it continued to improve. Friday saw much shop* pm«r. Saturday brought the zenith. Shelby merchants had prepared to' give their customers and patrons a bigger and better—funny how those1 words go together selection than ever j and the sales sheets of Saturday ’ spoke the appreciation of the custom ers. Cheery rowd. There - always niuch happiness in a Christmas, as shopping crowd. The festive color of such an occasion gen erally adds to the spirit- Then there's , a feeling at this season of the yean i that makes everyone friendly, Thig 1 customer, in a rush herself, took time to point out to the neighbor, jest ing her elbow in the crowd, a good present for some member of the fam ily. It was a great day Saturday, 1 perhans to be ranked m st Christ- j nias day itself, for on Saturday tba i herrt that gives on Christmas reveals! in buying and selecting with the '■ thought of pleasing. After today. Monday, there are only three days before the eventful day of the year. Thursday evening all shopping for the occasion must be at end. These three days will be packed j with little errands, small, last-minute puchases. The merchants are pre pared for that. Buyers brought in enough to last through the big Sal inday and for the three days. Many shopped Saturday hut 40 percent will shop Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Follow the crowds! There's a l<>t of Christmas that hasn't been sold. The windows are just as attrac tive as ever—-more so as the senti- , ment of the reason spreads. Workmen Organize Three Union* Here Carpenters, painters and brick ma- i sens have organized three labor un- ! ien.s in Shelby, the first time any < successful attempt has ever been : made in Shelby to organize. It is 1 understood that the painters and I brick masons were organized son.e ’ months ago and that most of the * workers at these trades have joir.cd ' The carpeqters union is the last to 1 undertake an organization and one i of the officials says that it bas a '• membership of GO men.

And “No Santa," be it the jolly old fellow of the nursery are the real giver of necessities, means tak ing much out of life, more than you’d cere to *ee slip from a breathing soul. Help Santa visit these 29 destitute home* is the Christmas appeal made to the people of Shelby. Will they heed it not? Will you? For many just like you make up the they. Shelby is responding nobly to the appeal so far. or.tributions are being turned over hour after hour to the committee. Others are being placed with the collection at The Star office. Little by little the total is growing. In comes a group of children, young sters that have plenty, but they know what “No Santa” would mean to them, and they leave their mite and go away happy. If everyone that is able responds in the manner Santa will visit every poverty -stricken home in Shelby, taking not trinkets and toy*, but necessities, the things that must be had to hold the spark of life in human bodies. Come Through Drop in the line of those contribu ting. Don’t put it off. Santa does not wait until the day after Christmas to begin his task. Death docs not wait until delayed coal and food arrive. You may save a life. At least you'll make the future of some life brighter Not much, just something. A dollar or two. some clothing, shoes, and the like. That's not much to ask, consid ering what it will mean to those who receive. Give Joy Fo: Sadness. ‘•Sob stories” are not front page stories usually but it’s up to you to take the sob out of some of these stories. Babson the authority on finance would call it a problem not to be sot ted for 10 people to live on less than S25 each weak, but in Shelby it is being solved. A father, mother and eight small children must live on that pittance and also meet the doctor bills that sickness has brought. Christmas in this home would indeed be a wonderful occasion if it brought only some meat, some bread and shoes for the youngsters. Only fou of the children go to school. The others have no clothes to wear. If it snows for the Yuletide as your child wants, these children will have to walk barefoot in the freezing white ness. They will, if it were not for you. A mother sometime* can take the place of much in a child's heart and life, but not 10 blocks from the court square is a home with five children that know not a mother. Daddy tells them that she’s gone. They look at him as he tells it, eyes open wide, lips forming questions upspoken. To them, perhaps in an effort to cheer them, he'll read the most beautiful story ever penned, the happiest event ever recorded in the greatest of books— the coming of Christ into the world. And after hearing it theyll wonder, those innocent children, just why the anniversary of that joyous occasion should not to them bring something. Sothing, tis true, can ever take the place of the kisses a mother would •.ave given them, of her love and care, sut some one could put shoes on their 'eet. food in their mouths. Their dad. til they have, make only $12 each week. Just $25 would meet the needs md an extra five-spot would bring o their faces joy that could not be quailed unless a mother drifted back Torn heaven to kiss them on the ■heck.

While Mr. John R. Dover, the mas ter builder of mills and leader of men, now has no official connection vith the Ella, which he built some 20 years ago, the Ella was represented in the large family out of sentiment for hi» “first love.” This annual get together is called the Dover banquet htcause it is Mr. Dover’s way oP showing his appreciation as mill head for loyal service, co-operation and faithfulness which characterizes the ['over organization*. Shelby Mill Banquet. At the same time, the Shelby mill ff which R. T. LoGrand Is secre ttr>-treasurer, was giving a banquet to 50 bosses, foremen, section men and overseers of the Shelby mill, the larg est single textile unit in Shelby. The stone of this was Central hotel where I*kk Brabble had a most bountiful spread of good things to eat. The program here was interspersed with music by the high school orchestra and an eloquent speech by Max Gard ner. Mr. LeGrand had a few special guest. Rev. Mr. McDiarmid and of ficials of the mill to enjoy the occa sion with the fifty “key” men who faithfully work on the inside of this lig enterprise. Rev. Zeno Wall of the First Bcp tist church was the principal speaker of the evening at the Dover banquet, pointing out "etSven, the Business -dan, as an example to live by. Dur ing course of his remarks he urged Ins listeners to spend their spare mo ments reading good books and im proving themselves for better things pointing out Stevens faith, wisdom and power. All True American Born. “It’s a pleasure to be South and <w a bunch of fine looking men like t, eso. all speaking the same lan gi age and moved by the same kind of motives," said John Fox of the firm of Wilson-Bradbury Co., selling agents for the three mills of which Mr. Dover is head. Such a gatherr-g could not be had up East where *very nationality under the sun is represented in the mills and living conditions are terrible. The mill men cf the South are richly blessed com pared with those of the East. Mr. W ykle of the Ella responded ta a toast on the subject “If I Knew You and You Knew Me”; Earl H;m r ck of the Ora on “Good Fellowship”; Jack Dover of the Dover on “Co-operl ntk>n._ Its Value in Any Successful Organization" and John Toms of East side on “Spirituality in the Mill". Toastmaster John R. Dover, equal to all occasions, summed these in an elo quent deliverance in which he declared the foundation of all business is serv ice and that towering above the de sire to make money, there is the am b tion of mill men to train workers for higher and better service. The re ward for service rendered might be delayed but it will come sooner or la Mr. Dover declared that the South ern Power Co., had turned Methodist during the summer. A11 the dampness that could be coaxed from the heavens was one little spAnkle after another, &o Charlie Burrus lead the crowd l.v tinging “Tain‘t a Goinna Rain Mo More.” The Moonchaser's orchestra and Miss Laney of*Monroe interspers ed the program with instrumental and vocal music while radio was a medium for side-splitting jokes on several vf those present. More for Others, Less of Self. Max Gardner who spoke at the Shelby mill banquet at the Central hotel pleaded for the right spirit in the observance of Christmas in that it means just what the Matter taught when he said “It is more blessed to give than to Receive.” He admonish ed his hearers to do more for others <-nd less for self and in this spirit the greatest blessing can come. It is the policy of the Shelby mill to remember its help every' year and while the ban quet had only the “key” men of the organization, plans are being made iqp jhe distribution of 800 parcels ot tardy, nuts and fruit to the 800 men, women and children on the HQ1. Tb% liberality and display of the Christ mas spirit will be made on Thursday ind is looked forward greaf interest.
