Hichs Play Three More Games
Here This Week. New Park
Makes Fine Field
With Gold keeping the Cherry -
ville hits well scattered and sup
ported ably by his infield Shelby
defeated Cherryville here Tues
day afternoon 4 to 2. The game
ended in the eighth inning when
the rain that had threatened all
afternoon began to fall. At the
time Shelby had several men on
with only one out and several
other scores seemed likely.
The game yesterday was the
first played this season on the re
novated school park and fans
were high in their praise for the
work done. The diamond has been
switched about, the field graded,
and new bleachers erected with
the result that the field is now one
of the best high school parks in
The Highs are playing Lenoir
here this afternoon, and on Thurs
day they will play Boiling
Springs. Friday they play again at
■ Home when Hickory comes here
! for a game, and on Saturday Bel
mont Abbey comes here for the
fourth home game of the v/eek.
Features of Tuesday’s game in
cluded the hurling of Gold, a new
moundsman on the local staff. The
youngster has a neat delivery
seldom seen in high school ball
but is erratic at times in his side
arm delivery. Other than his oc
casional wildness he hurled a fine
game. Cherryville’s heavy-hitting
pitcher, Smith, got in one of his
usual blows near the end of the
game. The fielding of Lee, nifty
performing little Shelby short
stop, furnished the fielding thrills
of the afternoon.

Gri^K Reelected Superintendent
For Two Years. Many Im
Further consolidation, new
buildings, and improvements
featured the first meeting of
the new county board of edu
cation here this week, leaving
the impression that the new
year for the board will wit
ness considerable progress in
the schools cc the counfy.
One of th° outstanding features
of the meeting Monday, at which
new members of the board were
present for the first time, was the
petition for a special tax election
in No. 1 township for the purpose
of consolidating three school dis
tricts and erecting a modern seven
room building with auditorium.
Several No. 1 citizens with the
plan on foot came to the meeting
and asked for an election. Learn
ing that a signed petition was
legally necessary they returned
home and brought back the peti
tion before the board meeting ad
journed, The election, it is
thought, will be held some time
about the middle of May. The
proposed consolidation in No. 1
would greatly increase the school
facilities of the township, accord
ing to school observers and would
i>e another forward step in the
?ounty-wide consolidation plan.
I J. Horace Grigg, who succeeded
| J. C. Newton as county superin
tendent, was reappointed for a
term of. two years by the board.
All in all the board enjoyed a
very busy day, numerous petitions
for improvements being' heard.
Among other things the board
named school committeemen for
the various districts—names of
new committeemen may be found
elsewhere in this paper.
The board authorized the pur
chase of additional land for the
Waco school with the purpose, it is
understood, of building improve
ments there soon. Mr. Blair, of the
state school building department,
was in the county last week and
he is going to submit plans for a
new auditorium and a renovation
of the building at Waco. The con
tract for the work, wh’ch will cost
about $15,000, will probably be let
at the meeting of the board on the
next first Monday.
Reports at the board meeting
also indicated that the Grover
school considers similar improve
ments, and it is likely that plans
for a new auditorium and renova
tion for the building there may be
submitted soon. The new audi
torium, it is understood. will be
built separate from the main
building possibly with a connecting
walkway. The old -uditorium will
be cut up into classrooms as nec
essitated by growing school en
The granting of an additional j
room for the Zion school building
was another item in the day’s j
work of the board.
Gets Fishing Tags
But Nothing Else
Clerk Hamrick at Loss to Know
How To Issue License To
Fishers Of County
With spring in the air, brooks
streams and lakes, supposed to be
inhabited by fish, are having lure
for local Isaac Waltons, but it is
necessary to have a license before
fishing these days and the proper
paraphernalia hasn’t arrived at the
court clerk’s office here.
The new fishing license law be
came effective when it was passed
March 2, and it requires a license
for all fishing. Recently Clerk A.
M. Hamrick received the fishing
tags to be used but no license
blanks or information concerning
the tags accompanied them. Until
something additional arrives Clerk
Hamrick naturally cannot issue
It is understood in counties
where proper blanks have been re

Resident county license, $t.
Resident state license, $2.

BEING HEARD NOW
Suit For Damages Over Death of
Man on Railroad Tracks at
One of the most interesting cases
of the Superior court civil docket
was taken up shortly before noon
here today and is now being given
the time of the court.
In the big damage suit it is gen
erally reported that much will
hinge on certain evidence that may
suggest a murder.
The case is that wherein Bertie
Huntsinger, administratrix of John
R. Huntsinger, is suing the C. C. &
O. railroad for $40,000 damages al
leging the death of her husband due
to the negligence, or caused by the
railroad. Huntsinger, it will be re
membered, was found dead on the
C. C. and O. tracks at Forest City
i June 1925. It is alleged, it is said,
that he was killed by a freight
train at 2:45 in tin morning. Able
counsel are appearing on both sides
of the big suit and a stiff legal
fight is anticipated. C. R. Hoey, of
Shelby, ap^rars, it is said with the
Huntsinger counsel. The case was
removed here from Rutherford
county. , ;
Get $140 Damages.
In the damage suit of Charlie
Smith against the Shelby mills.
Smith was given $140 damages by a
jury here today, it was learned
just before press time. $5,000 dam
ages was asked owing to an injury
it is said Smith received while in
the employ of the mill.
Court reports are that the $30,- j
000 Burgin Smith suit against the
Lily mill may be appealed to Su
preme court. The case dropped this
week in a non-suit action.
Should Be Labelled
As British Kings
When it is “George this and
George that” in Shelby it might be
either one of four Georges. Mean
ing that for the sake of conven
ience' the “Georges” of Shelby
should be numerically labelled like
unto the style of England’s kings
by the same appellation. F’rinstance
George I, George II and so on.
It happens that one of the Gre
cian or Armenian blood somehow
gets that handle in early life and
it sticks especially in America. Ti e
trouble in Shelby is this: There are
four Georges and all familiarly
known by that name. First there’s
George of the ChocolP|-» shop, or
George Smyrnios to be exact. Oth
er Georges positively listed are
George Kavas, Shelby Cafe; George
Scordos, Central cafe; and George
Poulou, Central cafe.
Therein comes the tangle. When
Shelby says “Let’s go down to
George’s place” what is meant.
Smyrnios. the original, says “Oh,
boy, that’s my place,” but perhaps
three other Georges may lean back,
pat their chests and think the same
thing. So there you are. Perhaps
you can master those last names—
Smyrnios. Kavas, Scordios, and
Poulos. If you can’t, just call him
Chocolate George, and George
One, Two and Three of the cafe.

HON. LC. DAILEY
DIES in VIRGINIA
Former Member Of Legislature In
Of Mrs. Green of Sharon
Hon. L. C. Dailey, at one time a
representative o f Rutherford
county in the legislature and well
known in Cleveland and Ruther
ford counties where he was engag
ed in the lumber business, died at
his home at Skipwith, Virginia,
March 22nd at the age of 73 years,
following an illness with influenza.
Mr. Dailey was reared in Cleve
land and Rutherford counties and
his legion of friends will regret to
hear of the death of their good
friend “Cars’' Dailey, as he was
known to them when he repres
ented Rutherford county in the
House of Representatives, he was
one of the most prominent men in
the legislature at that session. He
was a Bryan Democrat, always
stood for best interest of his peo
ple and was an active and very
prominent man in the councils of
Democracy until he moved to Vir- 1
ginia several years ago, where he
has been engaged in farming and
lumbering. He was married to
Miss Josie Bridges, of Ellenboro,
and to this union there are five
children, all living, also his wife
and two sisters, Mrs. George Digh
of Cramerton and Mrs. David
Green, near Beaver Dam church in
this county He was a member of
the Baptist church and a Mason.
“Cars” Dailey made friends by
his open, frank, honest dealings
with his fellow' man and we doubt
if any one had more real friends
than he and from Virginia we
learn that in his few years resi
dence there that ho had formed
large circle of friends.
Dr. S. S. Royster says, “I re
member in my last conversation
with our good frieiRT that he gave
us a little experience with his busi
, ness,in Virginia. He stated that he
; had a herd fo sheep and had gone
to the nearest market to sell his
wool and that they offered him
only a few cents a pound and he
said “it will require more wool
than I can carry to buy me a suit
of clothes that weigh only a few
pounds,” and said that if Bryan
was running this government that
he would have to sell some two
hundred pounds of wool to buy an
ordinary suit of clothes, showing
his faith ir^ his party and old
leader. Peace to his memory, may
we have others like him.”
At Eastside Begins
On Wednesday a revival meet*
ing will begin at Eastside Baptist
church of which Rev. H. E. Wal
drop is the pastor. Mr. Waldrop
will be assisted in the meeting by
Rev. Rush Padgett, pastor of the
Second Baptist church.
Prof. A. C. Lovelace, superin
tendent of the First Baptist
church Sunday school will deliver
an address at the 11 o’clock hour
at the Second Baptist church in
the absence of the pastor.
There will be no Sunday night

lina I.oop is Cood Enough
Shelby Will Enter.
Prospects for summer baseball
in Shelby are growing brighter.
Delegates who attended the meet
ing of Western Carolina league of
ficials in Hickory this week state
that in all likelihood the town will
enter the league. ,
If two propositions are reporter!
favorably Shelby will get in the
league sponsors of club here say.
The propositions are:
—That the town within the next
#y or so shows enough interest to
psure club supporters that sum
mer baseball is wanted.
2,—That league officials reach
an agreement whereby a high class
of baseball will be ployed.
The meeting at Hickory was at
tended by Herman Eskridge, fire
department chief, and J. R. Rob
inson and by the plan here the fire
department will sponsor the local
club. That Shelby will support a
team in the loop seems likely but a
mass meeting is planned in the next
few days to discusss the team's en
trance into the league. If this meet
ing endorses it Shelby will havt
her summer baseball.
Concerning the other condition
it is learned that one club in the
league wished to restrict clubs from
hiring any men at all. This met with
the disapproval or local delegates
who feel that enough players should
be hired by each team to assure
I spectators a decent brand of base
| ball. It is the general opinion now
i that each club will be permitted to
hire three fulltime players. The
likelihood is that two of Shelby’s
hired players will be pitchers and
that local college and high schotl
tossers will compose the remainder
of the team.
The league schedule unofficially
adopted at Hickory Monday night
\ calls for each club to play 40 games
191 three, games each week. By the
schedule each club will play 20
home games during the season. So
far only five clubs have entered the
league but another entry is expect
ed before the playing season. Clubs
now in are Hickory, Newton, Shel
by, Lincolnton, and Morganton
Valdese, a combination club. The
other club in the six loop circuit
will be either Statesville, Gastonia,
or Marion, it is said.
Shelby’s opening game of the
season is set for Tuesday, May 31,
at Hickory. The season continues
through August 30.

estate of Burgin Smith.

I Appeal is Withdrawn and New El
ection Promised for July to
Vote on Repeal of Tax.
The long and stubborn fight on
the location of a new school build
ing in the consolidated Elizabeth
und Roberts districts was compro
mised Monday by the county boafd
of education and in all probability
the two districts will go back to the
starting point, which means that
years will elapse before better
school facilities are available. The
county board of education promised
to grant another election in July of
this year on the question of repeal
ing the special tax which was voted
on in the two districts last July
with a view of erecting a modern j
school building and the appeal to
the Supreme court of the restrain
ing order held last week will be dis
continued. A petition signed by
about 137 voters in the district ask
ing for another election to vote on
the repeal of the special tax which
was voted on the district last July
could not be denied, so this will be
granted the citizens of the Eliza
beth and Roberts districts and in all
probability the special tax will be
voted off. Had there been any in
debtedness against the districts.
the special tax to meet such indeb
tedness could not be voted oft but
the special school tax had never
been levied and there was no in
debtedness against the district.
Other districts are making ap
plications for building funds and
the avalable money will be spent
elsewhere until the Elizabeth
Roberts difficulty is settled.

will have a hard time passing a civ
il service examination, Ben C.
Sharpe, deputy prohibition admin
istrator for this district said:
Prohibition' agents go under
civil service control April 1 and
will be given six months to pre
pare for the test.
If many agents lost their joba |
because of failure to pass the test,
college boys will be required to take
their places, Mr. Sharpe asserted,
adding that he did not believe in "I
“The rah-rah boys are all right
at a ball game but I’m afraid they
won’t do for chasing bootleggers,’*
The administration expressed fear
that some of his best agents would
fail to make the passing mark on
such a test. He explained that he
did not think “book-sense” was a
necessity in catching bootleggers.
Mr. Sharpe praised the present
force in western North Carolina.
“They all know how to get their
man and convict him,” he declared,
