“Leaf Hopper” Makes Serious
Inroads On ,Piedmont Cotton
New Pest Doing Far More Damage in This Section Than Boll Wee
vil Iivei Did. Fays Metcalf. He Came Here at Request
of Farm Demonstrator Alvin Hardin.
Tl a. the ‘‘leaf hopper”, describe*
as an insect that is a small edition of
a locust, has made more inroads In
the cotton fields of the Piedmont thnPi

of a statement made to The Star on
i Wednesday by P. Z. Metcalf, enty
1 mologist of Stat" college .Raleigh.
Mr. Metcalf came to Shelby at tne
request of Alvin Hardin, county agent
to investigate the work of this latest
pest to the farmers, and to suggest
| means of fighting the invader.
Mr. Metcalf, in an interview at the
Central hotel, told Th" Star that the
i hopper has made a very serious a:-!
I tack upon cotton in various sections
j of North Carolina, notably in the east
ern section of the state.
“The insect,” Mr. Metcalf said, "has
been known for a hundred vears, but
in the past has fed chiefly on the |
apple and on weeds, attacking more 1
lately the potato and the garden bean. ]
“Now it appears,” the scientist ;
went on, “that we are face to face
with the fact ihat the pest is chang
ing: its food habits, and is adapting it
self to the cotton plant. Just hov,
serious this threat will prove to be
I do not know. But it has done more
damage so far to cotton in the Pied
mont than the weevil ever did.
“And it is proving very destructive
lo the potato. I visited a potato field
in Cleveland county this morning
which I conservatively estimate was
knocked back 75 per cent, by the
work of the hopper.
“I hear reports from other sections
of the South that a flea hopper is at
tacking cotton. But I have not the
slightest doubt it is this same insect.’'
Mr. Metcalf and Mr. Hardin spray
ed a cotton patch with a poison gas
which was found to be highlv effec
tive in killing the hopner. But the
point is it may burn the plant, ir.
which case of course this particular
treatment will have to be abandoned
Wolf” Of Section May Be
Lost German Police Dog
Claimed in Charlotte That I)og Ad
vertised in Star is Reported Wolf
of Mountain Section.
The “lone wolf”, which according
i to reports has been terrifying natives
of rural communities to the westward
of Shelby, may be nothing else than
a German police dog advertised as
lost some weeks ago in The Star. Sev
eral weeks ago this paper carried an
advertisement by J. M. Jones, of
! Charlotte, seeking his police dog lost
! some time bkek when he was working
| in this vicinity.
Then a week or so ago reports
: came from Rutherford county telling
of a lone wolf wandering through the
i night shadows of the section. Thei#
were those who remembered the lost
| dog and connected the two as by the
i lore of police dogs they return to
their natural wilderness once they
have wandered without a master for
a month or so.
A news item in the Charlotte Ob
I server of this week supports that
theory. The Observer says:
Out in the wide-open countryside
that forms the triangle between
RutherfordtOn, Shelby and Gaffney,
S. C., whispered warnings of a giant

And that’s not all. Occasionally
the hardy farmers of the section have
been driven to the corners where turn

visage of a gray beast peering into

Mr. Jones, with memorandums and
specific data on hand, declares that
he, an electrician, was, on June 13,
working in the vicinity of the dam
near Shelby. The dog. he says, was
playing nonchalantly about the woods
of the district.
Mr. Jones says that the complies,
tion originated when a group of chil
dren. unfamiliar with German police
dogs as a breed or as individuals,
saw the canine and immediately rais
ed the cry of ‘wolf’, punctuating their
accusations with showers of stones.
Thereupon, Mr. Jones says, the dog
discretly retreated and has failed to
make its reappearance at its Brevard
street home since.
Mr. Jones is thoroughly convinced
that the lone wolf of Rutherford Is
his dog. Among other things, he sub

Starts In Shelby
Tully I). Blair, Pilot Official, Here
For Instruction of Insurance
Agents. Is Expert Salesman.
T. D. Blair, associate agency man- j
ager of the Pilot Life Insurance eor* I
nany, of which Carl Webb is the j
high much-amuck in this bailiwick,
opened a life insurance school at the |
Cleveland Springs hotel Tuesday to
run the remainder of the week.
About a dozen Shelby men entered j
for the course. '
Mr. Blair is rated as an expert
salesman, and is teaching the young
idea hereabout what salesmanship
means-—its fine points, and the differ
ence in the new idea and the old.
A representative of The Star talk
ed with him at length it the Springs
prior to the opening of his lecture
course, in an endeavor to find out and j
pass on to all those interested in |
salesmanship something of modern j
methods now being employed.
Mr. Blair declared that the old idea 1
that a salesman is “born” is the bunk.
Any man. he says, who is willing to
work, apply himself and tackle his job
with earnestness can become an ef
fective salesman. The job represents
about t)0 per cent work, as he sees it.
And ihe remaining ten per cent, cl
a salesman’s make-up mav be intelli
gence, personality, or what not.
The lecturer divides spiling into two i
broad and distinct classes. The first is
the sale of necessities—goods which
we must all buy. And the selling ot
such commodities differs from the i
selling of “specialties” under which
head comes life insurance.
To sell “specialties” according to
this expert, reouires salesmanship—
j **'at is the duality of indifference in
the "prospect” must be overcome. And
to overcome that quality requires
tact, skill, intelligence. and—work.
The approach, as Mr. Blair explains,
is different these days from the days
of old. Once upon a time a life insure
»nee apont told a prospect he wanted
to sell him a policy in the best com
panv in thp world, and that, was about
as far as his convincing argument j
extended. In those days life insurance j
agents got business on the strength
oT a begging appeal and pure gall.
Nowadays the agent approaches the
prospect wfth the end ip view of tbo
prospect’s interest, selling him some
thing which he needs, and it is Ids

dates. May Fay Bill.
Speaking in financial terms, the
Cleveland county treasury is better
off following the recent primaries
than ever before.
The candidates were numerous, and
because of their number were dis
cussed pro and con, but nevertheless
they all had to pay filing fees, and
Tuesday morning Bynum Weathers,
head of the county election board,
turned over a check of $142 to Mrs.
Mary E. Yarborough, county treasur
er, the sum representing the combin
ed filing fees of all county candidates.
Most of the sum came from the 30
odd Democratic primary candidates,
but not all of it.
Thirty-six dollars of the amount
came from H. Clay Cox. head of
Cleveland’s Republican party, and was
the necessary filing fees for the Re
publican candidates in the general
The remainder came from the Dem
ocratic nominess and also entitles the
victorious candidates for entrance in
the general election. $5 was the fil
ing fee for the more renumerativ of
fices and $1 for the smaller offices.
At that, though, the county didn’t
make any money through the politi
cal fever. However, the investment
was better than ever before. Count./
ing everything in, direct and indirect,
voting bees are staged at a financial
loss. It is estimated that the recent
contest very near broke even. The
registrars receive a certain amount
for the registration, which will total
a goodly sum considering the heavy
vote, while printing expenses of the
election board will take up the re
mainder of the filing fees.
