Defendant Taken To Gaston By
Habeas Corpus But Judge
Finley Orders Return
Wells Terry, young white man
of Belmont, who has already fae- j
ed two wives in a local court
room and is connected with other
legal counts, will be tried at the
next term of Superior court here i
and not in Gaston county, accord
ing to a ruling yesterday by
Judge Finley, who is holding court
in Gastonia.
Terry’s attorney secured habeas
corpus aciion^Xhursday by which
officers here were required to take
Terry from thw local jail to the
Gaston court where a plea was
heard to have Jihe defendant tried
there. Deputy Mike Austell to- j
get her with County Solicitor P. C.
Gardner and others accompanied
T»rry and at the hearing Judge j
Finley ordered that he be remand-1
ed here for trial. The Gaston at- !
torney sought to have him tried in
that county as he was living at
Belmont at the time of his arrest.
Terry, it will be remembered was j
the man who when brought into
court here charged with being
connected with a garage robbery
was faced by wife number one de
spite-the fact that wife number
two came over with him from .
Belmont. In the meantime automo-1
bile inspectors took the car he had
in his possession, brought the Til- i
ed of motor number into view and
revealed that it had been stolen
in South Carolina.
Terry’s attorney apparently was;
of the ..opinion that he might het- J
ter handle the case in another
court room than that in which his
cl ent had already faced two
wives, but the decision of Judge
I' inley thwarted the plan.

BUILDING PROGRAM HERE IN 1926
TOTALLED $885,000; HOMES LED
During 1926 Shelby’s building
program failed to reach the two
and three million dollar marks of
two previous years, but the total
construction activity of the year
shows a sound growth.
A survey of the year prepared, by
local newspaf et meii for a state re
view shows.that construction, work
in Shelby last year totalled approx
imately §885,003.
In the list of construction pro
jects residences led at an estimated
cost of $150,000. buying the year
many fine homes were erected in
Shelby; several being in the two
; new residential sections of Cleve
land Springs estates and Belvedere
Heights, while many others were
erected on the various residential
' streets closer in. School and muni.
. cipal improvements rank close to i
•the residence construction. The en
tire total is made up of business
buildings, residences, street and
municipal constriction, school
structures, smaller business build
ings and additions -o present build
ings.
The program during 192(1 gives
Shelby a construction total over
five millions over a period of three
years.

Testing Program
Well Under Way
Many Sc’wcels Near Completion Of
Tests—Smaller Schools
Now Testing
The testing program begun in.
the elementary schools of the
county during the month of Dec
ember is now well underway. Prac
tically all of the schools which
operate for eight months or long
er have already completed the
tests hut the work is just begun in
the smaller schools' which have six
months term.
As yet th<- results of the tests
cannot be determined. The task of
scoring the tec's and tabulating
the results is on .» that requires time
and patience it the part of the i
teachers. Afu r the tests have j
been given in all the schools the j
class record sheets will be forward
to the office of the county super
intendent where the results will
be compiled.
When the work is complete the j
progress of the schools may then
be compared with the work in
other counties. Should the tests in
dicate weakness in certain branches
remedial measures will be discuss
ed. Prof. 13. A. Stevens, of the
Extension Division o'' the Univer
sity o'" North Carolina is assist
ing both in supervising the test
ing program and in tabulating
the results. It is Hoped that by the
last of February work will be
completed and the results tabu
latcd.
Teachers and pupils alike are
manifesting great ,interest in the;
tests and their results. In many
instances teachers arc requesting
that the tests be given in their
schools and. stranger still many
pupils even in the high school
grades are eager for a chance to j
take the tests.

Several Cars Will Pass to Buy Clev
eland County Poultry in
Early Spring.
To Editor of The Star.
The following dates have been
arranged to run poultry cars from
Shelby for the spring of 1927, Feb
ruary 10th, March 9th, and 24th,
April 8th, and 20th, May 4th, and
18th. If we should find it necessary
to make any change in these dates,
du-1 notice will be given.
The reason we are making thi3
early announcement of the schedule,
is because we feel that the tbnnage
would have been double, that load
ed on the last car, had the poul
trymen received the notice of this
first car. Prices will be announced
preceding each car. Watch your
county papers for these notices.
Poultry loaded on the January
car amounted to 6,500 lbs. Eighty
seven different farmers sold birds;
the smallest return was $1.01, the
largest $56.25; the average $14.65.
The gross sales amounted to $1,
274.73.
We feel that these poultry cars
are a great incentive to the poul
try industry, they take care of
both large and small amounts of
surplus poultry, and thus make the
poultry business a safe one.
Spring is the recognised season
for poultry, therefore aTl farmer?
should have their birds ready for
sale not later than June 15th., if
they wish to realize a profit on
them.

OUR PAVEI) ROADS.
(Morganton News-Herald.)
Cleveland county is v n
sideritig a proposition made
by Highway Conimissioror
Kistler to lend the State
Highway Commission S500,
000 to be useii to complete
the paving of the state loads
in that county. It is th ■ same
kind of proposal as w. •
made to llurke county a 1 t
tle over a year ng> for the
completion of No. 10 and aft
er much debate rejected.
From this distance we judge'
that Cleveland is ci.n:.id- ring
the matter favorably, ami
that most likely the loan will
be made. We shall'watch the
outcome with interest and
with the hope that our
neighbor will do for herself
what we failed to do, and
push ahead with her paving
program.

already functioning here. Henry
Edwards, local scout master pre
sented Hugh White, district repro
scntative, Mr. Shields, organizer
and Rev. Zeno Wall who recited the
achievements of Boy Scouts and
told of the good the organization is

ful, thrifty, brave, clean and rever
ent in teaching these principles,1 a
fine character is formed which last
through the life of the youth. In

790,741 led by 1(57,987 men in 24,
589 troops located in every part
of the country.
Scouting has the endorsement of
churches of all denominations and
of business men and civic lend
ers. In this district a scout camp
is maintained at Lake Lanier iis
Polk county where a site has been
given for the use of the boys and
where they get a summer outirg
and scout training at a minimum
cost.
No action was asked, but the
members cf the Kiwanis club were
greatly impressed with the worth

the local organization is in need of
help and sponsorship.

Shelby Man Starts Second Ki^ht
For Secret Ballot. Outlook
More Promising Now.
Raleigh, Jan. 30.-: Introduction
of state-wide Australian ballot bills
in both houses of the general as
o■' ly. and of a marriage bans bill
in the house featured todays ses
1 Australian ballot bill was in
troduced in the house by Reresen
tative B. T. Falls, Cleveland. It
w, u ! provide for secret voting
over the entire state.
The form of the law would fol
low accepted practice in other states
hat iov a law and wo.i'.i require sep
arate ballots for different office
ifient i"ns and private booths
for voters to mark their ballots.
Several bills to make the Austra
lian ballot effective in certain coun
ties have been introduced, but the
joint introduction today marked the
first official move of the present
t.i i oral assembly to establish it for
th entire state.
The Shelby statesman offered the
rmo measure two years ago and
lacked one vote oJ getting it
through the house. He has captured
that support and with it a power
ful woman ally, Representative Ev
ert;4. of Durham, opposed the bill
. is a strong advocate now, as is
Mrs Everett. The Durham man
went against a powerful combin
ation last summer and suffered
considerable fright when this was
made an issue against him. His
conversion wasn’t Pauline or even
political. He just sees nothing
against the bill and very much in
favor of it.
Vaudeville Pair
Wed On Stage At
Shelby Theatre
Ev.-n Stage Love Gets Serious
Eenough for Matrimony When
Cupid Prowls About.
A lot of sedate, serious-minded
husbands have told thctr senti
mental spouses after leaving a
stage show: “Aw, that love-making
on the stage is all hunk. They coo
like doves, but it’s nothing but act
ing.’. Nevertheless, sentimental
wifef goes home and secretly longs
for something like the gentle ca
resses and heroic, honeyed words of
the stage.
And here’s a prize argument for
Women, who always want to he
loved and can’t help but get senti
mental at the sight of it: Stage
love is real—sometimes.
Proof, von say ? Well, what is
better proof of love than a mar
riage license, a beaming magis
trate, a little circle of gold, and
the pronouncement “man and wife’?
Enos'and Zeb Beam staged a show
Thursday night and as the curtain
flopped on the finale there was a
postlude, proving that stage lovers
some times cannot get over the
spell of the parts they play for, the
house. Anyway, the curtain came up
again anfi there stood ‘Squire 1.
Cling Eskridge, the “marrying
magistrate’ of Shelby, and before
him was one of the winsome las
sies of the show and also one of
the male characters. While the au
dience stretched forward to hear
real stage love culminated the mag
istrate soon reached the portion
of the pre-divorce ceremony where
a five-dollar hitching paper and a
wedding ring make one person out
of two, contrary to nature.
All of which is to say that the
theatre advertised a real marriage
on the stage with a local official
participating, and at the stroke of
10 the advertisement was carried
out in detail. The lovers of the
stage who became lovers, and
mates, in real life, were Dorothy
Philpott. just barely 20, if you
please, and Paul Robinson, just
turned 21. thankee. The young actor
and his bride of the public cere
mony bail from Montgomery coun
ty. Pennsylvania, which is to say
Philadelphia. Just how long they
have been lovers is not known, hut
now they are life partners—that
is, if that legendary matriomonial
sea offers smooth sailing. Both are
members of Homer Meacham’s
musical company.
And what’s more Squire Esk
ridge was close enough to the
Mushing (?) bride and her catch
to offer authentic information that
she was “right pretty” even when
me was nearby enough to see
through the stage make-up, and
the groom, he was a likable young
fellow.
And, yes. lest you think it was
just make believe like other stage
events, Register Andy Newton can
«ho\v you that the groom official
ly tendered a five-spot for the of
ficial permission of the State of
North Carolina to take unto him
self a better 55 per cent.

Cleveland County Has No
Bonded School Debt Now
Owes No Debt Except Part In Buildings Recently; Erected
By County.
The following summary of the,
county school budget and list of
expenditures as gathered by the
Cleveland County School Times
should be of *iterest to Star read
ers:
The cost in the public schools is
or.e of the most oft discussed
questions today. Here and there
one hears the direful prediction
that the cost of our schools is soon
to bankrupt* our state and county.
On the other hand many communi
ties are not seemingly content with
the county expenditure and accord
ing levy local taxes to add in the
support of their schools. In some
instances, no doubt, criticism of
our school system is justified; no
system of its magnitude can be
perfect. Again some criticism,
there is reason to believe, co nes
as a result of a lack of informa
tion on the part of the critic. With
this thought in mind the editor is
giving below' some very definite
information regarding the cost of
the county schools during the
present school year. These facts
are taken from the November
school budget recently approved
by the County Board of Education
and accepted by the Board of
County Commissioners.

ty supt. and supt. of wel

The county has no bonded in
debtednesA for schools. It owes no
money except its part of buildings
recently erected and for which the
j county and local district borrow
[ ed jointly from the State literary
fund. There was a deficit of
'about $15,000 at the beginning of
j the present school year. This was
| not due to an over expenditure of
the budget but resulted from fail
ule of the tax receipts to total as
much as expected.
It will be seen from the above
table that of the total expenditures
$10,630.20, or nearly four-fifths of
the budget is spent for teachers’
salaries. The matter of teachers’
salaries is one over which the
county board has no control.
Teachers are paid according to the
State salary schedule. The only
way to reduce expenditures in this
field is to replace the better
trained and as a result better paid
! teachers with teachers of less
1 training who would draw smaller
salaries. Rut no school commit
teemen wish to do this—and right
ly so.
The remainder of the budget
some $60,000, goes for the erec
tion of new buildings, payment on
buildings already built, for repairs
to buildings, for fuel, transporta
tion, school supplies, for desks and
other miscellaneous items.
Women Are Smoking One-Fifth Of
Cigarettes Sold Now In Charlotte
Charlotte.— Frivolous flappers,
pleasure-seeing' mothers, and dig
nified grandmothers—these con
sume at least 20 per cent of the
number of cigarettes sold in Char
lotte, according to a survey of the
hotel cigar stands and tobacco
shops.
And, believe it or not, women,
prefer the popular 15c brands to
the more expensive smokes. They
are not nearly so discriminating as
men in their choice of tobacco.
There are two kinds of cigar
ettes which women prefer above
others—ask the woman next to
you, she knows—and the number
sold of these two brands is about
the same, cigar clerks say. Many
women believe that the iy>pular
ity of one is deserved, while other
women prefer to walk.
The smoke shops here have their
ragular cigarettes customers
among the women. There are those
who are just a bit shy when it
comes to buying them. They ad
mit smoking but don’t like to be
seen purchasing cigarettes. Then
there are those who make “no
bones” about buying their supply
of fags, but drop a word or two
intended to inform one that the
purchase is being made for the
husband. This is the type of wo
man who usually provokes laugh
ter, unless she is really buying
them for her spouse.
For there is an air about the
woman smoker which is easily dis
cernible to the cigarette salesman,
or saleslady.
Find Great Pleasure
Women customers, in conversa- j
tion with cigarette salesmen, often;
declare that they derive their |
greatest pleasure from smoking, j
Mothers say it is a sure way to:
break the monotonous drudgery;
of housekeeping. A few grayhair-1
ed grandmothers assert that they
I smoke because they want to,
; while other grandmothers say they
smoke to keep pace with the
young.
And as for the flapper, well—
Smoking in public isn't consid
} ered declasse in Charlotte by any
means. In the hotels women us
ually withdraw to the dining room
and sitting rooms, while the
younger set is becoming bolder in
its action.
Representatives of the younger
set may be seen in automobiles or
in nearly any drug store booth, in
differently dragging at a fag.

Grading Roadbed to Begin at K. ;r!j
Date. Apiu-ai For Extension
By Shelby Heard.
Charlotte, Jan. 20.—Preliminar
ies to the start of construction cf
Piedmont & Northern Railway ex
tensions in the Carolinas rapidly
are being completed and the grad
ing of the roadbed for this $15,000,
000 project will be commenced with
in “a very short time,” it was learn,
ed Thursday at headquarters here
of the company.
Surveys of the route of the line
which will connect Charlotte and
Lexington have been completed, but
a decision has not yet been reach
ed regarding the route of the lino
which will connect Gastonia and
Spartanburg, S. C. The railway has
two options on that route, on
"'hich will be brought Shelby and
the other extending through Gaff
ney, S. C. While information made
available Thursday was not defin
ite, there was some indication thi t
the first construction work will be
done on the Charlotte-Lexington
link, which ultimately will bo ex
tended to Winston-Salem. The ap
peal Shelby probably will make of
the railway company, it was under
stood, will emphasize the fact that
the proposed route through that
city will not actually parallel the
main line of the Southern railway,
as will be the case should the Gas
tonia-Gaffney-Spartanburg , route
be chosen to link up the lines the
company now is operating in South
Carolina and North Carolina.
It was learned yesterday that the
Belmont and Lily textile plants of
South Shelby had purchased the
one-third interest in the old South
Shelby school building and site
from the Ella plant, of the Con
solidated Textile corporation.
It will be remembered that the
old school, abandoned after the
new- Morgan school was ereeteo,
belonged to the three plants, ,eacL»
owning a third interest.
Around $2,300 was involved i
the deal, it is said.

Gastonia.—Mangum and Denn
county attorneys, were instruct

able that the litigation will b<
commenced within the next day pi

adopted at a called meeting of the
board here today.
A final and detailed audit of
White’s books, just completed by
