License For Dogs
Moving Slowly As
Car License Plates
No Big Rush Here To Pay City
Dog Tax. Time Limit Up
January 15.
Shelby people seem almost as
slow about purchasing city license
tags for their dogs as they did
about purchasing license plates for
their automobiles. accosdtug to
City Clerk Fred Culbreth.
Yesterday information was to the
effect that less than a half dozen
canine owners in Shelby have paid
their dog tax for the year, although
the time limit is up on Tuesday,
January 15.
City officials are of the opinion
that all the dogs in Shelby did not
have license paid upon them this
year and after the 15th the threat

that dogs without license tags may
be disposed of by the city.

Rural High Schools Of This
County Facing Same Crisis
As Do City Schools Shelby
May Be enable To Complete School
Tear Unless Legislature AMs.
Expenses Cut.
The Shelby city school system is
not the only one in Cleveland
county to face a crisis this year.
Unless aid bobs up, in the nature
of legislative spread of the equal*
ixatlon fund or otherwise, three,
and possibly five or si* rural high
schools in the county will be unable
to complete the full eight months
term.
This statement was made yester
day by Mr. J. H, Grigg, county
superintendent of schools, who
adds that the situation did not de
velop just this year but originated
last year and before and is near
a climax this year.
Six Ran Short.
Last year it is said six of the
larger rural high schools—Fall
ston, Belwood, Casar, Piedmont,
Lattimore, and Mooresboro—ran
shy of funds before the school year
was completed. In other words
school expenses in the half dozen
big schools for the year surpassed
the income from the taxable source
of revenue.
Last year all, are practically all
of the schools named above com
pleted the term upon borrowed
money hoping for a county-wide
long school term. This failed to
materialize and at first this year It
was believed that the schools might
have to be removed from the stand
ard list. Hcwever, many delegations
of patrons beseiged the office of
the county board in the interest of
maintaining the full eight months,
and with the hope that the legis
lature this year would not cut
down the equalization fund, but
would permit it to be used in aid
ing extra month schools, the schools
reopened this year wdth the deter
mination to remain open the full
term if possible.
Expenses “Cut To Bone.”
Present. indications are that such
will not: be possible even though
expenses hi all six of the schools
have been literally "cut to the
bone."’
By drastic economy in the opera
tion of the schools, which neces
sitated a lower grade of teachers
and crowded conditions, ill but
three of the schools are running
within their taxable income this
year, reports say, but whether or
not they will be able to finish up
the entire year in such a manner
remains to be seen. Oh the other
hand the other schools «are unable
to operate within their Income de
spite the rigid economy practised
and it seems a certaintythdt these
three—Casar, Pallston." and Bel
wood—will be unable to complete
the full high school year unless
some provision by the legislature
this ihonth aids them. And ere
the' school year is over the same
may apply to the other rural high
schools.
In practising rigid economy this
year these rural high and consoli
dated schools are doing without
teachers they actually need and
less than the number required for
for the work handled. In some
instances, particularly at Lattimore,
there are far more pupils per
teacher than should be for bene
ficial work, it is stated. Realizing
last year that something must be
done the county school board and
district committees selected many
teachers with low-grade certificates
thus cutting down their salary
budget considerably.
Utners cut down upon their regu
lar number of teachers, cut out
one or two transportation trucks,
and did everything possible to low
er expenses,- but at the best figures
available it seems as if at least
three of the schools will be unable
to break even with the income.
Taught Without Pay.
In one county school last year,
it is said, loyal teachers wishing the
school to stay on the standard list
taught for two weeks withouf pay
in order to permit the school to
complete the term.
No More Tax Levy.
The perplexing end of the prob
lem is that every one of the six
high schools, with the exception of
Piedmont at Lawndale, has already
voted the maximum tax levy for a
special school district, which is 50
cents. By law the letT cannot be
voted any higher in special dis
tricts, therefore no additional in
come can be expected from that
source. The difference between the
taxation income and the school ex
penditures. even when "cut to the
bone," is due to the fact that the
schools are in rural district with
little other taxable property than
farm lands The situation is par
ticularly acute at Casar. Fallston
and Behvocd betaur* neither of the
three districts have i ble torpor
ofo y»*fioHb VMHi po **
Fund Would Pay
Colored Teacher*
If Cleveland county had an
eight months county - wide
school system one-half of all
the colored teachers In the
county would have had their
salaries paid for one month |
this year without costing the I
county one cent. It was an
nounced today by the office
of the county school board.
A letter received by the
board from the Rosenwald
fund, devoted to the educa
tion of the negro* stated that
the fund would pay the sal
aries of 30 teachers in the
colored schools of this coun
ty for one month, provided
they were teaching in eight
months schools. There are
about 60 colored teachers in
the county, meaning that the
fund would have paid half of
them for one month, but not
a single colored school in the ,
rural system operates over six j
months.
V-..^
wealth the tax valuation figures In
these districts are not high and
therefore the 50 cents tax proves
Inadequate.
Legislative Hope.
The hope of legislative relief
hinges about one angle. School of
ficials are not enthusiastic in their
belief that the eight months school
term will pass. But,this year there
has been a tendency to cut down
on the equalization fund, from
which this county gets something
over $47,000 each year. Hereabouts,
in the face of the school crisis, it
is hoped that the legislature in
stead of reducing the fund will per
mit the surplus portion of the fund
to be used in operating extra
months instead of increasing the
funds to operate the six
months schools.
If this measure is given a -celd
shoulder by the legislature the
Spring of 1928 could find Cleveland
without a single accredited or
standard high school.
Wholesale Economy1.
In the attempt to curtail the
school expenditures the most busi
ness-like economy is practiced by
the county school board, accordbjg
to Supt. Grigg.
“We purchase practically 'ItHfS
thing we use in the county schools
on the wholesale plan saving every
cent possible. We buy all of our
coal, for every school using do*U
during the summer when the prices
are lowest and we get It at whole
sale reduction thus saving, hun
dreds of dollars. Our auto trucks
and truck parts are purchased the
same way, as well as the gas. oil
and tires used, and the same thing
applies to our lamps, brooms,
stoves, paint and everything used.
All supplies are bought in carload
lots at wholesale prices, and every
economy known to business is used
now by the board as a county unit
and in cooperating with the dis
trict,” declared Supt. Grigg, “yet
these-districts find themselves in a
dilemna.”
“No, the Shelby schools are not
the only ones looking somewhere
for a solution to a serious prob
lem,” he concluded.

Two Roles Pm* Acre. At
Banquet Today.
Cleveland county, the champion
cotton county of North Carolina,
lias today attending a Rale-Per
Acre Cotton banquet In Charlotte a
14-year-old boy who stands a gtjad
chance of being ' acclaimed fhe
champion cotton grower of this
state.
The youth Is Aston Adams, 14
year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. R. O.
Adams, of near Lattimore, and the
record he presents at the banquet
today is nothing less than two bales
per acre produced at a remarkably
low cost, thanks to the instruction
the youth received In the agrhihl*
tural vocational department of the
Lattimore high school under the
direction of Prof. V. C. Taylor.
Others Attending.
loung Adams was only one of a
group of leading farmers of the
Lattimore section attending the
banquet given in Charlotte today
by the Chilean Nitrate corporation
honoring bale-to-the-acre cotton
farmers of the Piedmont section.
Among those going down from the
Lattimore community, where the
agricultural department of the
school has aided the fine farming
section greatly, were F. 8, Crowder.

Win be discusaetl. t,
On two and one-half acres the
youth produced 2,HJtu#ounds of lint
cotton, which was 6300 pounds of
seed cotton, or five 500-pound
bales.
But that isn’t the big story of the
young fellow's records, the story
being the low production cost. His
total Income from the two and one
half acres was $571.25, while his
expenses totalled only $163.98, leav
ing him a net profit of $407.27,
which means a profit of $162.90 per
acre.
Figured out by his agricultural
teacher the cotton was produced at
a cost of onl$ 2.9 cents per lint
pound and was sold at 19 1-4 cents
per pound. which was near 17
cents 'profit per lint, pound. The
low produMon cost was brought
about by the use of very litle fer
tilizer on the fertile Adams’ farm.
On the two and one-half acres only
1,400 pounds of fertilizer and 600
pounds of soda was used.
And if any one at Charlotte to
day can surpass the record of the
Lattimore youth. Prof. Taylor de
clares himself ready to doff his hat
in that person’s presence.
Young Adams is in the ninth
grade of the Lattimore school and
has taken vocational training for
a little over two years.

———
Gastonia, Jan. S.—Unearthing of
an empty-shelled pistol In the fire

covery of its recent ownership by
an enemy of the family end the
present wrytltanoe of the suspect
in this immediate oecttort was made

The newest developments of this
sensational case in which the elder
Vanderburg, his wife, two daugh
ters and a son were slain myster
iously end their bodies subsequently
burned to ashpj In their home early
last Friday was advanced as the
latest theory of the quintupe mur

investigation agency of Greensboro.
Mr. Williams announced that he
had been drawn into the case today

"During the day one of my op- j

the very startling discovery of a
pistol In the ashes of the wrecked
home.’’ declared Mr. Williams. "It
was a .32 caliber revolver with emp
ty shells In Its five chapnbers and
gives us the* very best foundation
for the plausible theory that the
five members of the Vanderburg
family were killed by a person with
this pistol and their hodies placed
in a heap in the back room and
burned when the rouse was de
stroyed by fire.
"We do not hesitate to say that
the pistol once was the property of
Jacob Vanderburg. He owned it un
til something like a month or so
ago when he pawned it. We also
are In possession ol indisputable
proof that the pistol was purchased
at the pawn shop by a person wlw
was an enemy of the elder Van

Five-Year-Old Boy
Escapes By Miracle
Rutherford ton, Jan. 3.—Jessie Lee
Martin, the five-year- old son of
Mr. and Mrs. Leroy Martin, of
Henrietta, had a most misaculous
escape from an awful death yester
day morning. A man called at a
nearby house to the little boy's
home, driving a Ford touring car.
He was waiting for some friends.
They were late and he decided to
take another friend across Broad
River, while they got ready. Ora
ham Hughes, the driver of the
Ford, started .his cor not knowing
that the little fellow was around.
Jessie Lee had climbed on the back
of the car and was perched on the
tire carrier. When the car started,
lie fell, but his overalls caught In
the cover for the time and his head
hung down. The driver, all uncon
scious as to what was going on,
started his car and dragged the
boy over a half-mile, while the
frantic mother ran after the car
screaming, as she happened to see
him, Just as the car started acron
the Broad River bridge, which has
heavy iron tracks, though a wooden
bridge. The little fellow had pres
ence of mind enough to hold his
head jup, Keeping it from striking
the ground, as he bounced along,
fastened to the cover. He was pain
fully, though not seriously injured.

Jan. i—The influenza epidemic in

“The people themselves can con

and a problem to the medical pro

is much about influenza that is un

but I think the wise course is to let
the children and young people go
on to school and college and watch
them closely. At the first sign of
{ever, that person should be sent to
bed ar.d watched very carefully.
“Influenza is no respecter of per
sons, and the young, middle-aged
and the old all seem to be subject
to it. Therefore, everybody should
be careful.
“There is no occasion for alarm
or excitement at present. The num
ber of eases is very large, but the
disease is not nearly so st vere as it
was in 1918, and the number of
cases with complications i» very
much smaller than In that epedemic.
