Padpett District to
Be Divided for School
In a recent news article in The j
Star calling attention to a school 1
tax election to be held in the Pad- j
gett school district, mention was
made that the district would ' e
consolidated with the Lattimore j
district. The Star is informed by
County. Supt. J. C. Newton that the
district is to be divided between Lat-1
timore and Mooresboro in accord
ance with a boundary recently work
ed out by a special committee. Part
of the patrons will, therefore, go to
Mooresboro and part to Lattimore,
instead of all going to Lattimore, as ■
was stated through error. This er
ror has caused some confusion in the
district which The Star now takes !
occasion to set straight.

ing from 6 to 11 o’clock when visi
tors will be given an opportunity to
inspect the plant, modern in every

Georgian Praises Progress
In General Of Carolina
Charlotte, aJn. 22.—Junking the
old “pay as you go" plan has been
largely responsible for the wonderful
strides made by North Carolina in
highway building, education and
along other lines. Clark Howell, pub
lisher of the Atlanta (Ga.) Constitu
tion and one of the outstanding news,
paper men of the South, Tuesday to hi
ihe Charlotte Rotary club in a brief
address.
Mr. Howell came to Charlotte from
Concord where he is spending sev
eral days as the guest ol' his wife’s
relatives. “You have here in North
Carolina the wonder state of the re
public." Mr. Howell declared. He
pointed out that the strides made by
the state possibly are not as apparent
to residents as they are to outsiders.
Ditching of the policy laid down by
early governors that the state should
attempt only such projects as it was
able tv) pay for at the time has been
instrumental in placing North Caro
lina at the peak of the list of pro
gressive commonwealths, he told the
Kotarians.
Mr. Howell said that for the past
few years he had consistently pomt
cd to North Carolina as an example
ot stir Georgia citizens to a more pro
gressive spirit. Some success, he said,
has attended these efforts, but he ad
mitted that his state has fallen far
behind North Carolina in civic, educa
tional and material development.
Georgia’s trouble, Mr. Howell saief
is in the fact that nor leaders and
her people have not the courage to
break away from the traditions of
the past and step boldly forward in
line with progress.
Georgia’s resources are not so far
below those of North Carolina, he
said, but the people of his state lack
the vision to take advantage, to take
the fullest possible advantage of these
resources.
May Build Highway
to Henderson Line
Highway Nro. 20, from Rutherford
toil to the Henderson county line, 22
miles, will likely be hard surfaced, or
;t macadam road built this year. Mr.
Kistler, state highway commissioner
n the eighth district, of Morgan tor,,
made the principal address to the
Rutherford county club at the Iso
hermal hotel one day this week and
made a proposition to Rutherford
•ounty that if it put up the money
.he road would he built as soon as
ipssible. The state highway commis
liori, will of course, pay back the mo
lt y in (iue time. It is estimated that
t will take from $400,000 to $600,000
o build the road. The Rutherford
runty club endorsed the project and
he commissioners decided to lend the
tate the money before the meeting
idjoutiad.

Bowling to Open
Cleaning Plant
Announcement comes from J. 0
Bowling, for sometime proprietor oi
the Central pressing club, that rjex:
week he expects to open on North
Washington street an up-to-date dry
cleaning establishment to be known
as the Shelby Dry Cleaning company
A building in the D. A. Beam Auto
motive building is now being remod
elled for the enterprise, Mr. Bowling
says that his plant will be equipped
with all the latest machinery and
equipment for particular dry clean
ing and pressing work and that any
work coming in can be handled.
W. K. Misenheimer, Bowling says,
will be associated with him in the
general supervision of the new plant
A shift of the presidency, and the
revealing of the fact that milk pro
duction is falling off in this commun
ity, due it is said to lack of proper
forage, were the outstanding points
of interest that developed at the
annual meeting of the Shelby Cream
ery Company, held in Shelby Thurs
day.
The charge of officers brought
William Lineberger into the presi
dency, taking the place of Joe S.
Blanton. Formerly Mr. Lineberger
was secretary and treasurer of the
i company.
; J. A. Suttle was elected secretary
and the following list of directors
were perpetuated in office: George
Blanton, J. L. Suttle, S. S. Royster
L. S. Hamrick, J. H. Quinn, and the
two officers.
It was announced that the com
pany had the best year, from the
financial point of view, in its history
; covering a period of sixteen years.
But at that table of yearly produc
tion showed a decrease in pounds of
butter produced from 270,000 in 19
22 to 214,000 for 1925.
This condition of the falling off in
! dairy products, and especially in the
output of creameries, was said at
the meeting to bo genera! over the
state, and was attributed to a ne
glect on the part of farmers proper
ly to feed their stock to secure the
maximum output of milk.
One authority amongst the gath
ering said: “It is the old story. Too
much attention to cotton, and the
corresponding neglect of other farm
products, such as hay crops and the
like.
"What is needed,” he wont on, “is
more and bettor cows and the grow
ing’ oi more feed.”

“Chain Gang” Bow
Introduced Here
During Court Case
Convict on Road Camn Introduces '■
New Neckwear in Courtroom
The Latest in Ties
Some fashions start in gay Paree,
j others elsewhere. Those for men gen
erally originate through circum
, stances of events or temperment.
The latest in neckwear for men
I hereabouts is the “chain gang bow.”
| And boy it’s a scream for those who
! are fond of staking their rolls on the
j upward turn of the galloping dom
inoes. In other words the dubs and
nros of African golf will fall for
this style like enthusiasm wanes
when the “snake eyes” show up on
the square golf halls.
Last week during the interesting
Cody trial several convicts were i
were brought in court to testify, j
Among the number was John Henry
Hunt, colored, who is serving a good |
calendar year on the road force for1
misdeeds unknown here. Now this '
tie John Henry wore—
When lie came in the court room
Solictor Burrus— strong on neckwear
himself—noted John Henry’s temper
1 mental bow tie. One of a set of red
dice with white spots—many men
have became acquainted with such
dice to their sorrow—had been hol
lowed out and served as the knot
protector for the how. In the par
lance of the ready-to-wear clothing
establishments it a was knockout. In
other words the knot of the bow was i
hidden niftily in the hollow of the j
“bone,” wings protruding on each
side. When Solicitor Burrus found i
time he made inquiry into the tie:!
“W'hat kind of tie you call that John
Henry?” he asked. “Oh! Dat’s a
chain gang bow,” was the reply.
Oftentimes have we seen the gal
loping dominoes trimmed into cuff!
links, and on other occasions one
hone used for a stick-pin, but the
“chain gang bow" is a new wrinkle.!

Lake Lanier Dam
Broke Thursday
Asheville, Jan. 21.—Giving way
under the force of waters brought
down from the hills above by re
cent snows and rain, the main
dam at Lake Lanier, just outside
of Tryon, collapsed shortly before
11 o’clock today, sending down
upon the lands below a torrent
which for a time threatened to ov
erflow into a number of small
towns between here and the Pac
olet valley in South Carolina.
Reports late this afternoon
were to the effect that waters
were just subsiding although ev
ery precaution possible was being
taken by mill owners and resi
dents south of here against flood
water.
Starting from a seepage which
was allowed through rotten rock
at the western side of the dam,
the break spread quickly over one
section. The damage was estimat
ed by engineers this afternoon at
about $.'10,000 and plans were be
ing made foi preserving; the
structure.
Shelby Hospital To Benefit

Determined By Combliou
Dr. Rankin met with the sopi
tal staff and several t un ,l>ei s of the
board of trustees a; the Hospital
when he outlined the three different
kinds of assistance Which the Duke
Hospital Fund will furnish. In the
first place, 67 institutions in the
two Carolinus that are not operated
for private gain will receiv" SI per
day per charity patient, this being
forty per cent of the cost of caring
for charity patients. About StrSG.OOO
be distributed the last of June this
year. The amount available will
largely be determined by business
conditions of the country as the en
dowment for hospital! was left in
the form of securities, mostly South
ern Power Company 1 »ck, the bet
ter the- earnings, the largest amount
available.
In the next few years Dr. Rankins
says between $700,600 and $1,000,
000 will be distributed to 67 hospitals
in the two Carolina for the help in
the care of charity.

will extend to the hospitals i:?

will take it upon themselves to sup
plement ihi. Duke charity fund so
that the hospitals can enlarge their
usefulness.
Kates Are Low.
As for the rates at me Shelby
Hospital, Dr, Hankins declares them
to be exceedingly low in comparison
to other institutions. “Why you care
for a patient here, giving room, fond
nursing and professional services for
less than a first class hotel charges
im a room” said Dr. Rankin. We hope
the hospitals can lower their charges
by caring for more charity. Where
the Shelby Hospital has nn average
of lii patients a day, it cart easily
care for 25, thus bringing down the
average cost and the pay patient will
not have to bear any of the cost of
the charity patient.”
The citizens of No. G built and
equipped this splendid Shelby Hos
pital rejoice that Dr. Rankin has
seen fit to distribute some of the
Duke Endowment to this institution
and the hope is entertained that
sometime in the future a tubercular
building might be provided.
Gassed During War
Did Effects Cause
Vandyke Rampage?
hcrrjville Butcher Will Kpmain ir
Jail Until His Trial. UuUnsel
For Him Asserts;
Gastonia, Jan. 21.—-Was Jesse
Vandyke, Cherryville butcher,
temporarily insane when he shot
Chief of Police A. L. Painter and
Horace Farnsworth on the Cher
ryville streets?
Does Vandyke’s dose of gas he
received in the world war so ef
fect his mind that he loses his
senses at different times?
The above are the types of
questions running through the
minds of local people today who
are highly interested in the cast.
Whether or not defense council,
including Clyde R. Hoey, of Shel
by, former congressman and per
secuting atorney in the famous
Cole case at Rockingham, will ar
gue that Vandyke was crazy
when he shot up his home town,
is a matter of speculation.
Vandyke will remain in jail un
til his trial. His counsel has ad
vised him that he is safer behind
the bars.
No attempt to arrange bond
for Vandyke will be made.
Deputy Steve Stroup, of Cher

Building of Monro# Line of Sea
board Would Add to This Section
of Road.
Monroe. .Tart 21.—Announcement
was made by W. S. Blakeney of Mein,
j roe, who is chairman of a steering
' committee appointed last month to
i ascertain the possibilities of a rail
! road from McBee, S. C., to Monroe,
| that the chances for the new road
| lias taken on new aspects and that
■ it seems a certainty.
The steering committee is made
up of representatives from the
Chambers of Commerce, of the towns
of Gastonia, Charlotte, Monroe,
Pageland, Cheraw, Hartsville, Mc
I Bee and Jefferson. The committee
| held a meeting last night in Page
j lan, and present was W. R. Bonsai,
' who first promoted the railroad
i from Monroe to McBee.
| Up to the meeting last night the
j arguments for the new road had
| been largely to take care of the
' frieght haul from and to Chester
field county. South Carolina, and
shorten the haul of freight going to
the southeast.
At last night's meeting Mr. Bon
sai made known the faet that Soa
| board officials are interested in the
new project for the purpose of es
tablishing through passenger haul
over their lines from the play
grounds of Florida to the play
grounds of western North Carolina
At the present time the Seaboard
hauls a large part of the tourists to
Florida. It has, however, no direct
passenger service from Florida to
western North Carolina. The com
pletion of the proposed road would
give direct Pullman service from
Florida towns to Rutherfordton in
the mountains and thus connect the
two sections of attraction.

Big Car Driven by Andrew Lewis
Practically Jumps Ford Where
Passing Seemed Impossible.
On Wednesday, Andrew Lewis,
driving a Hudson coach, with two pas
sengers, and bound west for the Ora
mill, aproached the Rover mill bridge.
The approach going west is down a
steep hill, with a spiral road. The
Iridge at the fot of this road, leading
across the river, is a one-way bridge.
Lewis started his car down the spir
al, stepping off at about 25 per, which
is pretty fast going down a hill as
stiep as that. Looking on the bridge,
he saw a, Ford just climbing on the
aproach on th west side, and headed
1 is way.
lie Clapped on his brakes to check
the Hudson, but alas! something
snapped. It was the big Hudson’s
brake rods. As the drag was released
the car jumped ahead, figuratively
speaking, its head in the air—free.
The Ford climbed on the bridge and
started across. The Hudson ran down
the hill faster and faster. At the foot
of the hill was the bridge entrance
and a steep river bank.
The two passengers climbed out to
the edge of their seats, and began to
grab things. One ofthese passengers
was Henry New. He said to Lewis:
“Stop her! Stop her!” The other pas
senger was a woman, Miss Bessij
Green. She clutched the seat edge and
prepared for the worst.
The Hudson took the bridge at a
good 25 or better. Remember it was
a one way bridge. About a third of
the way over, headed east the Ford,
like Charley Dudley Warner’s boar,
was coming on.
Lewis, as a last resort, as the Hud
son rattled over the floor boards,
tried to throw the engine in reverse;
hut there was no reversing it. He
ttied to get it in low;; then interme
diate. But it was £oing in high when
it hit the Ford, so to speak, face to
Just as the two cars were coming
together, Lewis threw his steering
wheel over, thinking that by 3ome
miracle he might get by the little
car. He did. When the dust cleared
the Hudson had passed the Ford on
the one-way thoroughfare, but the jar
was terrible.
It broke the Ford’s windshield, and
glass flew everywhere. The right rear
wheel crashed down, the radius rods
bent double. But the little fellow was
in first-class condHTon by comparison
with the Hudson. The doctor’s bill on
the latter will be $50. The left front
wheel was smashed, the right front
fender askew, front axle bent, and a
casing torn up.
No one was hurt.
Lewis said technically, the smash
up was his fault. Actually he said it
was unavoidable. But what he wants
to know is and probably will be want
ing to know for some time, how the
Hudson got by the Ford on the one
way bridge.
“I firmly believe the big car climb
ed right over the little one,” Lewis
said.
The Ford was from Lattimore, and
the identity of the driver could not b«
1c Sifted.
