“Tricky** Move
To Injure “AT*
Revealed Here
Local Leaders Say Fictitious Smith
Letter Used In Mills
Here.
Local Democratic leaders here
today branded what they term
ed an "underhand concerted
effort" on the part of Republi
cans or some organization yes
‘ terday In Shelby textile vil
lages to Injure Gov. Alfred
Smith by a fake letter.
The declaration of leaders was
borne out in part by news dis
patches in the morning papers to
day in which the letter widely cir
culated here was shown to be a
fake.
Tuesday morning a letter appear
ed in the Open Forum of the Char
lotte Observer in which a suppos
edly Smith supporter expressed his
enthusiasm at Smith's wetness. At
the time supporters of Smith said
that this purported support of
Smith was really a dirty attack on
Smith in disguise.
Witherspoon Aids.
The letter was signed by "A. James
Davis, of Lexington." and by some
means or other copies of the letter
were widely circulated about the
textile villages of Shelby yesterday
and last night. Where the copies
came from is not known, but Demo
cratic leaders are of the opinion
that some organization must have
known the fake letter was coming
and was set to distribute it about
Shelby.
However, a letter in the Obser
jk ver tills morning by E. E. Wither
spoon, editor of the Lexington Dis
patch and former editor of the
Shelby Highlander, revealed the
fake. According to Editor Wither
spoon, who is well known to Shelby
people, a search of city directories
and a check-up of all registered
-voters, new and old, in Lexington
failed to reveal such a citiezn as “A.
James Davis." This would indicate
that the letter was not a genuine
one, but if it is the Lexington edi
tor in his letter reminds that "it
represents the view of no responsi
ble Democrat In Lexington.’
Apparently the letter was one of
the same fake type as the one in
the Greensboro News some weeks
back in which the writer signed his
name as a citizen of Shelby in at
tacking the character of Max
Gardner, Clyde Hoey and Major
Bulwinkle. When traced down by
angered Shelby citizens no such
(.person was found here and futher
onore was not known.
Local political leaders in brand
ing the Davis letter as a fake in
that there seems to be no "A. James
Davis” in Lexington also call to the
attention of local voters that there
must have been a concerted effort
all over the state in that ctpies of
the fake letter were distributed all
; over this section only a short time
! after it was published.

1 Our Bob’ Stages Typical Revival
For Democrats At Big Rally Here
-__ T ..
Asheville Lawyer Has racked Court
House Yelling For
Smith.
R. R. (Our Bob) Reynolds, Ashe
ville lawyer, who "has run” tor
nearly every office in Western
Carolina and added to those ex
ploits by travelling around the
world in a flivver, came down to
Shelby last night and staged a
Democratic revival of the type Zeb
Vance put on in the hazy days of
yesteryear.
"Our Bob” didn’t make the final
Billy Sunday gesture, but if he had
it is likely that he could have call
ed scores of converts to Democracy’s
mourning bench. As it was enthus
ed men and women, old and young,
rallied around Reynolds for 30 min
utes after his speech in congratu
lating him. No political campaigner
here this year has aroused l:is audi
ence more or brought forth more
rousing cheers.
Evangelist Style.
It was a Smith audience that
heard Reynolds—perhaps it was not
altogether so when he started but
it had become so long before he
ended. Loud “amens" mingled with
cheers in interrupting the driving
shots of "Our Bob” in denouncing
those who attack the boy who
made himself because he is so
honest they do not want him at the
head of the government.
The Asheville speaker devoted
himself to three issues and a gen
eral whooping-it-up. In dairs gone
by his speech would have been
termed a revival, but in the modern
vocabulary it was a whoopee party,
and a whoopee party of the type
Shelby hasn’t witnessed in many a
day.
Back and forth across the bar en
closure of the court room he strode,
at time halting to strengthen his
declarations by pounding upon the
chairs and tables of the court room;
at other times he stooped over, rest
ed his palms on his knees and
shrieked at his hearers in regular
Billy Sunday style. He knew his
audience. The older men he called
“grandpa” and the older ladies were
“grandmas” to him, while he took
in the remainder of his audience as
"boys,” "fellows,” and "girls.”
“No,” he declared in sarcastic
vein, “you should not vote for
Smith because he is a Catholic. They
tell you that, butt did they say an»
thing about the Catholics when
Democracy fought in France at the
call of Woodrow Wilson? No. Only
recently I met a friend of mine, a
Republican friend on the street in
Asheville. He told me a surprising
thing when he informed me that he
was going to vote for Smith. When
asked why he was voting for the
nominee of another party he de
clared that It was because of the
attack on Smith's religion and told
me what he declared to be a true
story in explaining himself.
“ 'Ten years ago, he said, ‘I was
in France. My bunkie and my pal
happened to be of the Catholic
faith. Many days have I gone with
him to the K. of C. huts, support
ed by the Catholic faith, and there
I received smokes and eats. Not
once did they ask me or any of my
friends about our religion. They
were there to help us boys. Then
one day we plunged over the top. In
the first few yards a machine gun
bullet pierced the head of my pal.
He fell, his life's blood dripping
from his head. I gathered him, my
bunkie. in my arms'. As has spirit
fluttered away he murmured only
one word 'Mother.' Now when I see
the people of my country lighting
a man of his faith, a faith in which
the last thought is that of mother,
it disgusts me. They didn’t ask my
pal if he was a Catholic when they
sent him over there to die and he
asked no immunity because he
was a Catholic. Yes, I'm going to
vote for A1 Smith even though I
am a Republican.’
Religion s Inception.
“Did you who oppose Smith be
cause he is a Catholic ever stop to
think where he got his religion? A1
Smith is a Catholic because his
mother was a Catholic, and for the
same reason that I am a Methodist
and you are a Baptist or a Pres
byterian—because our mothers
were Methodist, Baptist and Pres
byterian. What more could be said
for any man? Who would fight any
man because he foHowed his moth
er. Show me the man who loves
and honors his mother and his
known love and kindness for his old
mother is one of the highest lights
in A1 Smith’s life—and I will show
you a real man.”
Passing to the Tammany Hall
and wet charges against Governor
Smith, Reynolds’ sarcasm and scorn
rose to its highest peak as he com
pared Tammany Hall with the Re
publican organizations and the
Harding regime. He declared that
Smith was honest in his prohibi
tion views because he deplored
present conditions in which more
high school boys and girls drink
whiskey than ever before. Condi
tions devolving from the fact that
Longest Corpse
Is Tall Negro
In Rutherford
Question: IIow long is the
longest corpse? That is a
melancholy question, but it is
timely, in view of a statement
made today by Z. J. Thomp
son. Mr. Thompson, whom
the community knows as
“Zol” makes coffins. So he is
an authority on the dimen
sions of the dead. He has just
delivered a casket in Ruther
ford county, in which a negro
was buried, that measured
seven feet ten inches. The
corpse was seven feet six, the
four inches being allowed, ap
parently, for a good old fash
ion yawn, in case the worst
came to the worst.
Mr. Thompson says the
standard size casket is six
feet three inches. Which fact
apparently gives the dead
Rutherford negro the record—
what might be called a post
mortem record.
Auto Skids On Highway 20 East Of
Shelby With Chamber Of
Commerce Official.
H. B. Skinner, of Burlington, said
to be an official of the chamber of
commerce there, suffered a broken
jaw bone here Monday when his
auto skidded with him on highway
20 beyond the fair grounds.
Mr. Skinner was thrown against
the steering wheel and windshield
and suffered a laceration on the
face as well as a fracture of the
lower left jaw. The fractured jaw1
was set at the Shelby hospital by
Dr. A. Pitt Beam, local dentist. Mr.
Skinner resumed his journey home

Marries A Couple,
Using Mute Language
( _
Rev. Andrew C. Miller, jr., the
only mute evangelist in North Caro
lina was called from his home in
Shelby to Statesville last Sunday to
perform the ceremony uniting a
couple of mutes. Mr. Miller used
the sign language of the mutes and
the ceremony was quite an impres
sive affair, the bride and groom both
being mutes.
Mr. Lackey Will Be
Out In A Few Days
Mr. R. A. Lackey of Fallston, the
Republican nominee for sheriff who
was badly bruised in an automobile
wreck about a week ago, is rapidly
recovering and is expected to be out
in a few days.
Mr. Lackey has been recuperat
ing at his home since the accident.
Children In Cotton
Picking Race Win
(Special to The Star.)
The children of Mr. and Mrs.
Guy Grigg of the New House sec
tion decided to have a cotton pick
ing race. On Monday October 15,
Mollie age 9 years picked 206
pounds in 11 hours; L. G., jr., 7
years of age picked 154 pounds in
the same length of tim.e
They have a month of vacation
from school for cotton picking and
they have not played all the time
during vacation.
William Chalk is the new opera
tor at the Webb theatre. This young
man was in Miami, Florida, during
the late hurricane, and decided aft
er the catastrophe to seek other
fields where the elements were more
favorable. He says he likes Shelby
immensely.
prohibition enforcement under the
Republicans is handled by the
treasurer department of which the
head is Andrew Mellon, who made
much money before prohibition
through the manufacture of whisky.
Finally ‘Our Bob” made his big
appeal. The appeal to the masses,
and the Asheville man in all of his
campaigns has received the vote of
the working people — farmers,
clerks, textile workers, laborers.
“We want A1 Smith, friends, be
cause he is of us and knows our
conditions. The fish market boy
who kept climbing but has never
forgotten where he started from.
Why, the Republican pulled a
boner. If they had waited until two
weeks before the election to start
these lies they would have almost
beat Al. But they didn’t.”
SKULL FRACTURED
Frank Griffin, Show Helper, Falls
From Truck As Show Moves
To Fair Ground.
Frank Griffin lies at the Shelby
hospital with a fractured skull and
in a semi-conscious condition as a
result of a fall he sustained early
Tuesday morning from one of the
trucks of the Western Amusement
company which came here to play
the Cleveland County Negro Fair
which is running this week at the
county fair grounds.
According to the statement of
Hugh Lowe, agent for the Western
Amusement company who was driv
ing the truck at the time, Griffin
was standing up on the bed of the
truck when it swerved around a
curve at the intersection of East
Warren and Marion streets. Griffin
was precipitated to the pavement
with the result that he struck on
the side of his head and the skull
was fractured. He was picked up in
an unconscious condition and hur
ried to the hospital where yester
day he was partially conscious. The
physicians reported that he was im
proving, although his condition is
still serious.
Hugh Lowe, driver of the truck
and agent for the show says Grtf
fin is about 25 years old but he did
not know where his home is. He
thinks Griffin hails from West Vir
ginia.
Bridges Will Not
Play In Encounter
Against Charlotte
Star Halfback May Be Out Several
Games Yet. Hurts High
Chances.
Guy Bridges, star halfback of the
Shelby high football eleven, will not
play iri the -game here FrifSsy
against Charlotte, it was definitely
stated here today by Coach Casey
Morris.
Futhermore It was added that
Bridges* injured hand may keep
him out of several more games.
Bridges’ absence will be a serious
blow to the Shelby eleven already
doped as the under dog in Friday’s
game with the strong Charlotte
eleven, which has run roughshod
over every opponent except one
this year. (Prospects of the two
elevens for the game will be found
on an inside page.)
Washburn Switched.
In scrimmage yesterday Coach
Morris made several shifts in the
attempt to plug holes in the eleven
caused by injuries. With Bill More
head also not in uniform due to an
injured eye, Ed Washburn, speedy
little end, was shifted to a hall
back position. His teammates in the
first string backfield included Esk
ridge, Wall and Gold and the four
may start against Charlotte. Rich
ards, sub centre, was used at a
tackle position and may break into
the first string line Friday supplant

Hoover Favored In
Election Betting
Odds Against Smith Quoted At
Three To One. Survey Of
Nation's Betting.
New York.—Betting on the
presidential election throughout
the country has been extremely
light. Odds are at wide va
riance but heavily favor Hoover,
according to a survey of prin
ciple cities made in the past
week by The World.
Compared with previous national
election wagers have been not only
few in number but small in
amount, the survey shows. West of
the Mississippi it has been conclud
ed apparently that the somewhat
chaotic conditions in eastern states
preclude the posting of odds this
early in the game.
There seems to be a reasonably I
firm market, with the odds against
Smith averaging around 2'- - and 3
to 1. In some states they are more
than 3 to 1; in other states less than
2 to 1. Of course on big bets the
New York odds usually rule, the
money being wired here for action.
The New York market is about 3 to
1 against Smith on the national
outcome and about 11 to 10 against
him on winning the state.
Following are some reports:
New York: Odds which started at
two to one on Hoover, ranged to
fourteen to five, and have gone as
high as four to'one, on the na
tinal elections. Three to one is
available. Odds on the state were
held at even money for some time,
but have progressed to eleven to
ten against Smith and in a few
small cases to six to five. The
evens are most on offer. Volume of
betting is light as compared with
other presidential campaigns but
brokers say it is a bit early.
Pittsburg, Pa.—-Only small bets
reported. Genera lodds on national
results 2 to 1 against Smith. One
bet several weeks ago $3,000 to $1,
000 that Hoover would have at
least 200,000 majority in Philadel
phia. Odds on the state about about
the same,
Butte, Mont.—Bettors here lay 2'i
to 1 against Smith, with consider
able money placed. Seven hundred
dollars was offered at even money
that Hoover beats Smith in Mon
tana.
San Francisco—Hoover started a
2 to 1 favorite; is now 3 to 1 Other
offers are 7 to 5 Smith carries New
York state; even money Hoover
carries California by 275,000 and
Los Angeles by 125,000. Bettors lay
2 to 1 Hoover carries the state. Even
money Hoover carries New Jersey ; 3
to 1 Smith carries San Francisco.
Bets light; little Smith money in
sight,
Hollywood, Cal.—Betting light.
Odds are 2 to 1 on Hoover; Demo
crats asking 3 to 1.
Providence, R. I.— Brokerage
houses quoting two and cne-half
against Smith. From $10,000 to $15,
000 placed with prospects of little
more Smith money.
Omaha, Neb.—No bets. No offers.
Louisville, Ky,—Two to one on
Hoover, nationally. Seven , to five
that Hoover will carry Kentucky.
Few wagers.
Boston, Mass,—Practically no bet
ting. One offer by Hoover man
against Smith taken for $3,000 to
$1,000,
Columbus, O —Odds here two and
one-half to one that Hoover will
win. Total amount placed about
$25,000.
Baltimore, Md—Even money on
Maryland; even money on New
York state. Betting light. Three to
one on nation.
Pierre, S. D.—Little betting; Dem
ocrats ask at least two to one odds
on national election.
Albuquerque, N. M.—Little betting
