Graduation Exerc.se* Held
Last Night at Luncheon.
A diploma showing her graduation
from the Shelby hospital was pre
sented last night at ' the Kiwanis
luncheon to Miss Sadie Beverly,
pretty Anson county nurse, the
fifth to finish the complete course
at the nurses' training school here.
The diploma was presented by Dr.
E. B. Lattimore, chief of staff, who
in a few well chosen words spoke
of the high calling of the nurses'
profession, and improvement they
have brought about in sanitary and
hygenic conditions, how they work
hand-in-hand with the physicians
in the prevention of diseases and the
great service they/tender mankind
in the sick room.
Four nurses who had completed
their training at the Shelby hospital
and were graduated last year were
present. Misses Margaret Crowder
Ada McCoy, Maggie Atkinson and
Sara Roberts. These were the first
to finish, as the hospital was opened
for operation only four years ago
Clyde R. Hoey who presided over
mu giauucuiuii exercises as presi
dent of the board of trustees spoke
of the splendid co-operation that
the physicians and the hospital
staff are rendering the institution
and expressed the hope that some
day the institution might be a
county wide affair, rather than a
township institution. During the
year ending September 1, 271 pati
ents had been cared for 2,766 days,
205 part-day patients for 1,702 days,
185 charity patients for 2.418 days,
making a total of 661 patients treat
ed for a total of 6.886 days. During
the year there were 46 births and
44 deaths i nthe institution The ca
pacity of the hospital is 40 patients
while the daily average has been
19. The cost of operation for the
past year was aproximately $35,000.
while the cash receipts were $32,578.
Most of the doctors of the coun
ty were present, together with the
training class and the officials. The
physicians of the county are on the
staff and take turn about in lectur
ing to the training class on various
topics. In the past year the requir
ment for graduating has been raised
from two to three years and now a
graduate comes out much more ef
ficient and capable of carrying on
the g-eat profesion to which she de
votes. herself. Prior to the building
of the local hospital there was no
hospital in the county and patients
had to be sent elsewhere. Cleveland
has a population of over 40,000 peo
ple, declared Mr. Hoey and the lo
cal institution has been the means
of sating many lives and relieving
much suffering. The physicians have
co-operated ni making the Shelby
hasp.ial what if is today and the
loyalty of the people and the staff
generally is a matter of pride.
Prizes given by the local mer
chant were distributed to each of
the ladies constituting the oficial
staff, the graduating and training
classes. Following the diploma
aw'ard there was asocial meeting in
the lobby of the hotel.

Faith Healer Not
Sick In Hospital
As Was Reported
Mrs. Bynum, the widely-talk
ed “faith healer’ of Iron Sta
tion, Lincoln county, is not ill
and a patient in the Crowed
hospital at Lincolnton. This
was learned yesterday in a tele
phone conversation between
The Star and the hospital.
The query about Mrs. Bynum
was made of the hospital after
It was talked on the streets here
that she was ill in a hospital
there. Dr. C'roweU stated that
she was not, adding that Mrs.
Bynum was in the hospital
there six years ago.
Hereabouts the report that
the woman, who is credited with
healing so many people through
unusual powers, was in the hos-’ ’
pital created quite a bit of talk.

VERDICT IN SUIT
After Three Day Trial Jury Ends
Case in 30 Minutes. Morrison
The three-day trial of the suit of j
C. A. Morlrson and Sons, against J
G. Dudley with counter claims end
ed today when a jury returned a ver
diet giving Morrison $399.
Three days of the court were prac
tically taken up in hearing the vo
luminous evidence offered and at
times exchanges between the attor
neys engaged in the case became
rather warm, ob'ictlons being maJe
almost as often as the Jurors in the
varm court room mopped their per
spiring brows. Yet the Jury, despi.e
the lengthy evidence, apparently re
tatned a clear enough conception
of the case to reach a decision in
less than an hour.
The iiligation centered about the
new Dudley residence in Cleveland
Springs estates. Morrison was suing
for about $500 alleged to be still due
him on the contract. Dudley in u
counter claim set forth that the
work was not completed for which
he asked a deduction of over $100.
adding that the work not being
first-class had resulted in damage
of a thousand dollars. ,
Numerous carpenter, contractors,
lumber dealers, and real estate men
were placed on the witness stand to
testify regarding various portions of
the house, nature of material, and
class of workmanship.
The Jury answered the issue as
to what Morrison would receive w ith
$399, answering yes to the query
about workmanlike job, and "no” to
the counter claim damages asked.
Morrison was represented by C. B.
McBrayer and Peyton McSwain.
while Judge B. T. Palls appeared for
the Dudley Interests.

Hot Weather Halts
Coach Morris Permits Squad to Loaf
Owing to Sweltering Atmos
phere on Thursday.
“Casey" Morirs, Shelby High ath
letic director, gave his football
squad an afternoon's vacation due
to the intense heat. The grid coach
considered that a grind in heavy
football togs out under the piercing
rays of the sun would do his boys
more harm than good. In fact, the
weather for a week has been very
unfavorable for football practice
with swimming and baseball seem
ing more appropriate.
The favorable prospects of a week
ago for a hefty line have dwindled
somewhat. Howard Moore, rated as
one of the best line players Shelby
has ever produced, only remained
with the squad for a day or so and
is not in a Shelby uniform now.
One or two other huskies expect’d
to brace the forward wall with some
needed beef have failed to show up
regularly for practice. Yet Coach
Morris is not so pessimistic. “Give
me a little time," he says, “and I
will have a pretty fair line as it is."
