Fortune Surrenders In Grover Negro Killing, Freed Under Heavy Bond One Of Quartet Sought Gives Up To Officer When He Hears Of Negro’s Death. Dis claims Any Connection In Beating. Says Hicks Struck Blows On Head. Released Under $3,000 Bond. Others Still Missing. Marcel Fortune, one of the four young white men sought by officers in connection with the fatal beating Tuesday of Claude Long. Grover negro, came into Grover Thursday morning and surrendered to De puty Sheriff tharlie Shepherd. Fortune was immediately brought to the county jail here, but during the day County Judge John Mull set a bond for him at $3,000 and Grover parties. It is said, arranged the bond at the instigation of Clyde R Hocy, employed as attorney for Fortune. Tells Fatal Brawl The story told by Fortune through Mr Hoey, his attorney, clears up a portion of the fatal brawl. Fortune himself disclaims any actual con nection in the affair and is backed up in his statement, it is said, by the sister of the dead negro who was a witness. Futhermore the neat-appearing young fellow who gave up says that he was not trying to elude officers and that he came in when he learned that the negro was dead and that he was connect ed with the case. At latest reports Hicks. Allen ana Westmoreland are still missing. Of ficers are continuing a search for them, especially in South Carolina. Mr. Hoey states that Fortune told him that on the day of the fatal beating he had driven a team up to Grover from his home just across the South Carolina line. During the day he said he came on to Shelby, leaving his team at Grover. Re-, turning in the alternoop, he says, a i car came by with Hi6ks, West- I moreland and Allen in it. They call ed him. he claims, to come take a ride “down the road a little piece.” He got in and the car proceeded on down to where the dead negro's car had stopped- At this place the car in which he was riding stopped, he says, and one of the others remark ed “We want to see this negro.” Fortune says that at this time Hicks and Westmoreland got >out of the car and went to the negro. Hicks struck the negro over the head one time with a stick or spoke of some kind, Fortune tell it, and then Westmoreland is said to have told him “Don't hit him any more.” but that Hicks swung the bludgeon against the head another time. Left The Quartet According to Fortunes story tc his attorney he then left the party, never having moved out of the car during the assault. Allen, it is said, also returned to town and told the officers about it. Later. Fortune says, he got ms team and drove on home. Hearing early Thursday morning that ne was connected with the assault and also that the assaulted colored man was dead he came back across the ! line and gave up. Had No Feeling Fortune's explanation that he was in no way connected with the as | sault is further supported in his I story by the related fact that he ! was not connected with the original j trouble with the little negro boy Saturday night. Hoyle Allen. Er i nest Hicks and Jack Westmoreland were the ones who had the original | trouble and it was against them, ac ! cording to Fortune, that the fatally ! injured negro testified. His first j connection with the party was when I he was asked to take a ride, he j says. The heavy bond, under which '[ Fortune was freed, was made re , tumable on October 10, by Judge [ Mull but it also makes it plain, it l is said, that the bond is returnable t at any time between now and then when officers deem advisable, or when the others are captured. De velopments at present are awaiting something new in the search for the others. as tne Fortune story is told, al though not definitely brought out. it seems as if Allen was not a lead er in the assault, as it is not men tioned anything about Allen getting out of the car with Hicks and Westmoreland. From Grover comes the report that one of the negro women along with the negro who was beaten states that Hicks struck the blow', or blows, as the case might have been. Fortune is somewhere around 2£ years of age, a rather nice-appear ing young fellow, and not married. He belongs to a family well known in the section. Honey Exhibit At Ceveland Co.

Hundreds At Radio Ringside Here As Gene Tunney In Greatest Fight Stops Near Come-Back Of Jack Dempsey Tex Rickard sold out every ring side seat in Chicago Thursday night and a record crowd of over 150,000 looked on, but Tex has no vague as to the thousands who held a radio ringside seat and fidgeted through one of the most gruelling fights on record. Here in Shelby hundreds of fight fans, men, women and children, listened in as Gene Tunney weath ered one of the wildest attacks of the Manassa man mauler in the sev enth round and then came back to victory to retain his heavyweight championship crown. Dempsey apparently held the ser timent of the largest number here abouts, but the ex-marine had his followers, too. In various sections of the town business men gave open radio concerts to hundreds of pat rons, while in scores of home neigh borhood circles gathered about to hear, the details of the greatest sport spectacle ever staged. At the con certs in the uptown section the jam was so great that the streets were hardly passable. The first big kick came in the fourth round when it seemed that the champion would dispose, by a knockout of Dempsey, trying to come back. Then Dempsey came through until the gong. In the fifth and sixth rounds they slugged away. In the hectip seventh Penipsey lor a moment looked like the lithe wild cat that sent the bulky Williai d i down time after time. He drove his famous left repeatedly to the cham pion's head and "Tunney is down" came the radio report. In another state Dempsey might have been a champion today, for Tunney it was ' said was down 12 to 14 seconds, but j complying with the Illinois law the I counting does not begin until ti e ! other fighter is back in his corner i and Dempsey lost time getting away from the fallen man. In be | tween “nine and ten” Tunney crawl , ed to his feet and began dodging tin ; til his groggy head cleared. It was , then that the superior mentality of ; the champ revealed itself in mak ( ing time to get bearings. After tha' round Tunney staged the comeback that kept his crown. In the ninth his slashes opened a cut over Dempseys eye. In the tenth tin challenger was gory and wobbling and the final round saw the cham pion near to knocking out the most dangerous threat of his career. Tunney won the decision by rounds, the tenth being considered I the deciding factor by many ring side experts. As it was the two fighters, about whom remarks were made after the Philadelphia fight, gave the spec tators their “money's worth", even sending a tingle through radio spec tators thousands of miles away as ‘hey tore into each other swapping siags and jabs in one of the greatest tights ever before the largest crowd ever. i THOEE HURT WHERI CARS COLLIDE AT TRIANGLE CORNER Cleveland Sprints Steward Worst Hurt In Wreck Between His And Lewis Auto. Three patients were carried to the Shelby hospital Wednesday aft ernoon, two of them seriously hurt, as a result of a coll Ison between two cars in front of the Roy Sisk res. dent at the intersection of Marion and Warren streets three blocks east of the square. % Bert Curtis, steward at Cleveland Springs hotel, is perhaps the worst Injured in the trio.

Mrs. Lewis was bruised but her injuries were not serious and she was dressed in a home near the scene of the accident. According to best information available, the Lewis car was com ing toward town, while the Curtis car was going toward Cleveland Springs. Lewis says the sun was in his eyes and he could not see. From the position of the care he was too close to the left side of the road and the cars hit head-on at the curve of the road. Both cars were almost completely demolished. A man by the name of McSwain. accompanied by Dr. J. R. Osborne who was with in a few feet at the time of the ar —©tdent. carried the patients to the hospital Lewis, senior, has only :t hazy recollection of what happen ed, while Curtis, riding alone in his car, was knocked unconscious and remained partially rational alt through the night.

It isn’t a bed-time story, but it tells about a few of the many things the children will be interested in when they visit the Cleveland County Fair, September 27 to Octo ber 1st You know, children forget so easily! We want to remind them to save their pennies so they can enjoy themselves at the fair. There will be so many things there they will want.

Gallons and gallons of cream flavored with chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. There will be gallons of the pink iest kind of lemonade. There will be "sodie-water" and pop There will be “hot-dog" stands barking on every corner. There will be boys selling toy bal loons. There will be boys selling pea nuts, canes and ticklers.

PBESCirs SEED FI Ilf NANCY Says All Those Who Preach Against It Should Be Made To Drink a Pint Of It. (By H. K. Reynolds. INS Staff Cor respondent. i London.—Jack Jones, the voluble and restive Socialist member of Pariament for Silvertown, is trying to get Lady Astor to drink a glass of beer He thinks that it would do her good. "It is time that all these people j who preach against beer were made to drink a pint of it.” Jones said in an interview with an English jour-, nalist. "I would like to make them drink one pint—and I would pay for it—just to see if there is tin least possible chance of making them human. The government needs beer bad- ; ly, and the man who needs it most in the government Is Sir William Joynson-Hicks, the Home Secretary, said: "Yes. I would even buy her a glass of port wine if she would drink it.” Jones declared that if beer is not the backbone of the British nation. | it at least helps to support the backbones of those who are obliged to bend them continuously during an eight-hour day. I am convinced that if Jix had a pint of beer he would ask for another. He is just as human as you or me. but a man with a Non I conformist conscience and a bee in j his bonnet about beer cannot be ex j pected to Iwld sane views about I anything. ’ "Once I had an argument with Lady Astor about beer. She said. ‘Why do you drink beer?’ and X said ’Because I like it. And site said 'It does you a great deal of harm It is ruining your constitution.’ "I said, ’My dear lady, you know nothing about constitutions. You know nothing about the British Constitution, and you know nothing about your own. You cannot even say “British Constitution” as clear , ly as I can. although you have been a life-long teetotaler. Moreover, you know nothing about beer because you have never tasted it.’ ” Asked if he would like to treat Lady Astor to a pint of beer Jones “It makes me tired.’’ lie said, “to hear people, who pride themselves on doing brain work, trying to rob the working man of his beer. Most of these people haven’t any brains to work, and if you asked them to do a hard day’s physical labor you would find they hadn’t any bodies worth mentioning. Good beer is es sential to the manual worker, and it is time that teetotal, as well as other fanatics in the labor move ment, and out of it, were put in their places.” Good Program On At Boiling Springs • Special to The Star.)
