“C’s” have a lot to do with
Cleveland county, theve being two

always talk of cash craps—two
more “C.’s”—and Cotton- another

it wasn’t any particular fore

bearable this year. Rather it was
a generous working of nature, and
an abundance of things that a good j

the consensus of opinion among I
farm leaders. However, Cleveland
farmers did set aside more acre

year than last and that small di

been a serious situation.
If you think times are hard ;

that there, was no mote fruit this 1

Spectators (iet Thrill When Shelby
Cemcs From Behind To Win
Before Final Whistle.
Spectators who witnessed the
Morgarton-Shelby high school
game here Friday will have to
pivc “Casey” Morris’ eleven cred
it for one thigg—-the ability to
stage a desperate ccme-back. With
just two minutes to go before the
final whistle Shelby held the low
end of a 7-6 score, but two minutes
later when the referee ended the
game the count was 13 to 7. Those
two minutes were no longer than
any other 120 seconds, but jn that
time spectators witnessed some of
the best football Shelby has seen
In the victory fans noted contin
r 1 improvement in the little blue
dad Shelby warriors. The Mor
ganton team rates next to Gaff
ney in strength of oponents this
year and it was desperately-tired,
but victory seeking outfit that
drove across the entire field within
such a short time.
ivrir i/uth ncunnR
Tommy Kerr, sparkplug of the
Shelby eleven, registered both local
touchdowns. In the early stages of
the game he plunged over for six
points, the attempt at goal fail
ing. Then with Morganton forging
to the front with seven points
later it was Touchdown Tommy for
the last marker, the diminutive
ouarter snagging one of Ed. Har
ris’ passes out of the air and step

march down the field on end runs
But to get back to the thrills:
Several hundred fans gathered on
the sidelines believing the dope
ihat predicted a Shelby victory.
Thereupon Morganton trotted on
the field a husky outfit, better
than any state team seen here
this year, and manv began to
change their minds. The game mov
ed on and the cheers of the lassies
on the sideline sank belowr a whis

The formal program of the col

October 20, and will continue
through Saturday. It is generally
conceded to be the premier event
for the negroes of Western Caro

Cleveland have arranged some very

when they found him in Shelby they,

They gathered e.round a table in

Finally the situation advanced
to a point where the cashier laid
the money on the table. One of the
men had advanced the corporation
$20 to run the stand on. This be

twenty dollars so that he would be
sure of that much. There was no

VIOLATORS PAY HEAVILY
Convictions for violation of the
Prohibition law amounting: to 44,
022 were obtained in the Federal
courts during the last fiscal year.
This was an increase of 4,193 con
viction over the previous year.
The aggregate amount of fines im
posed in these cases amounted to
$7,339,995, which was approxi
mately $400,000 less than the fines
imposed during the previous fiscal
year, but the total years of jail
sentences for the last fiscal year
was 5,666 years, an increase of
about 1,100 years over the sen
tences of the preceeding year.
This indicates that more jail sen
tences are being given to the
violators of the Prohibition law.
