Well, Shelby folks who make reference to their first
citizen1 today will be technically rijrht. at last -for he really
is "Governor Max” today.
The county commissioners arc to make a bond issue to
repair and rebuild bridges of the county damaged by the
flood last year—a move, say we, to which citizens of sections
damaged are justly entitled ns taxpayers.
For several years new the news payers of the state have
been talking about Shelby’s next governor, but of recent
weeks they seem to be discussing Shelby’s next year schools.
We were proud of the first, talk and we have no right to kick
about the latest discussion since we brought it upon ourselves.
SHELBY’S BUSINESS MEN
*« A MEDICINE MAN,” one of those fellows who travel
^ about the country, gypsy stylo, picking up their shekels
here and there, stood over cn a side of the court square this
week and dished out his articles to ft large gathering he had
talked into numbness. It was a good crowd and business
apparently was just as good. He was a smooth-talking art
ist, and perhaps, as he said, his medicine and candy were
just as wonderful as he portrayed them to be, but what we’re
wondering about is: Did he pay a regular license to do busi
ness there? Perhaps so, but if he did not it isn’t fair to
Shelby business men. druggists and others, who pay regular
taxes to serve Shelby'31 shopping public.
THIS IS CLEVELAND county’s big day. Down in Raleigh
this morning a son of a country doctor—.and what more
noble ancestry could man ask than that?—was inaugurated
governor of his state. Older citizens can remember the day
when he trod the Shelby streets in his bare feet, first start
ing out on his steady, determined grind to success.
Governor O. Max Gardner will be greatly missed by the
town and county which gave the state and nation the Dixons
and the Durhams, but in this section's loss the home people
can assure all Tar Heels that they have gained a fair-play
ing,, square-shooting lender whose most attractive requisite,
perhaps, is his ability to be friends with men and women in
all walks of life. The governor Shelby gives the state today
will never be known »s a “high-hat,” and for that reason, al-j
though the home folks are exceedingly proud of his ability
and his success, the folks back homo are wishing him the
best of luck for the next four years while he handles his big
BACK BOILING SPRINGS
WHEN ENTERPRISING Baptists of this section trans
” formed Boiling Springs high school into a junior college
they were optimistic of course, but the junior college in its
first session has advanced even more than the most en
thusiastic supporter could have hoped for. Such has been
the progress of the institution that it is now only slightly
removed from the standard list. As The Star understands
it the school library is about the only department needing
a boost before the school goes on the standard list. Around
2,000 volumes are needed to boost the library to the required
That shouldn’t be any great task for the loyal Baptists
of this section and the many friends of the institution in
other denominations. About the homes of this section are
hundreds of books that might well be tendered the junior
college library. What do the people of the section say? A
year, or so back the Lenoir-Rhyne college needed so many
hundred volumes for the college library to boost the Lutheran
school into the'accredited class, the Hickory Record present
ed the appeal and in record time the books were donated.
Cleveland county and the adjoining section should do
the same thing for Boiling Springs. Who’ll start it, and how
many of you will keep it going? Let’s go—bring your books
in to The Star office and this paper will properly acknowledge
tvery donor and volume and see that they are turned over
to the school. If you have no su’ta^’e books, give the equiva
lent in money 1 And don’t put it off !
CASE OF C'EEYELAffD COUNTY
WHAT DO OUTSIDERS think of the school crisis in Cleve
land county? The Hickory Record noting the situation
here comments upon it and in remarking thrt there are simi
lar conditions over North Carolina refers the latter ta the
legislature. The Record comment follows.
*‘Aa we gei the situation in Cleveland county it is tike

tax levy for the city schools and the Shell)} school board now
says that upon the present income the city schools will be un
able to remain open longer than seven and one half months.
jt a nonstandard school system. To make matters
worse. Mr. J« H, Grigg,. county school superintendent, says
that the county system is in even worse condition; they are
not only running behind but they cannot vote an increased

Toted their maximum of 50 cents and still that is not suff>

“According to a news story out of SMhy “the predica
ment did not just originate this year, but has prevailed.
Last year in one school loyal teachers taught two weeks with
out pay to keep the school on the standard list.’’
“That, of course, is a very unfortunate situation. The
citizens of Clc\eland county might well he, as is reported, in
a dilemma over the future of their school system, and it is
fevcrently hoped that the State Legislature furnishes them
with the relief that they believe will deliver them from thir
“Hut, having expressed sympathy with the harassed
citizens, might we ask how it happened that Cleveland has
permitted its school system to get in such a financial strain?
And in asking that of Cleveland we might as well he asking
it of practically every other county in the state. We realize
the election for an increased levy was defeated, which never
should have happened. If that election had gone across the
cit.v school system, to sav the least, would doubtless have
pulled through this present crisis for a few more years. But
it seems to us that something is vitally wrong when county
and city school systems get in such a financial condition with

The richest counties pay less for their public education and
have the finest school system, while the poorest counties pay
most for their public schools and have the worst systems.
The law is unjust and not uniform, and we trust that the
legislature will find the wisdom to correct it. But in the
absence of any immediate remedy the educational systems
of the various counties need the most careful financial man
agement it is possible to obtain.”

and over a Million miles of Testing
Never has a new motor car come to
the public more thoroughly proved
in every detail than The Outstanding
Chevrolet of Chevrolet History.
Years ago, the Chevrolet Motor
Company designed and built its
first experimental six-cylinder
motor. This far-sighted step was
taken because Chevrolet engineers
knew that the six-cylinder motor is
inherently the most perfectly
balanced motor—the ideal power
plant to meet the growing public
demand for greater reserve power,
faster getaway and, above all—
smooth, quiet performance.
During the last four years, over a
hundred six-cylinder motors—rep
resenting every conceivable type—
were built by Chevrolet engineers
and tested on the General Motors
Proving Ground. This constituted
one of the greatest series of tests ever
conducted with any automobile.
From time to time, the experimental
models were torn down for inspect
tion, redesigning and further testing
—until the present motor was de
veloped and pronounced correct.
While the new six-cylinder motor
was in process of development, other
Chevrolet engineers were perfecting
other parts of the chassis. And
another great automotive organiza
tion—the Fisher Body Corporation
—was devoting its gigantic resources
to the creation of the finest,
sturdiest and most beautiful bodies
ever offered on a low-priced
As a result, the Outstanding Chev
rolet offers an order of well-balanced
excellence that is extraordinary in
the low-price field. From every
ttandpocrrt—power, speed* imocriv
leas, acceleration and quietness—
its performance is truly amaring. Its
landjing ease and roadability ara
exceptional. Its economy of oper
itlon is so great that it delivers better
tfurn 20 miles to the gallon of gaso
line. And its outstanding beauty,
smartness and luxury are cxdtmg
