THIS DEPARTMENT IN ITS
news gathering rounds is going to
sorely nifes the Governor of North
Carolina, who was up until today
the "next governor,” and a citizen
of Shelby.
In th* large cities the principal
news Sources are the city hall, the
morgue and the chamber oi com
merce. Here in Shell y one may
keep a pretty close tab or. all the
events of ihe day by keeping in
touch with the city hall, the court
house, the undertakers, and the
recorder. However, in a city no
larger than Shelby the day often
comes along when no news to
speak of W breaking, and it is es
pecially so where the paper has the
aim of publishing home news in
stead of reproduced, or wire news.
On many occasions v hen seeking
news and finding none—not even
enough for one good "page one”
story—the writer has climbed the
Utalrway to the old Max Gardner
* office and got enough news, or
’ (nought tips on stories to fill half
Of the front page.
Governor Gardner, in the slang
of the newspaper game, was, and
is “good copy.' Which doesn't
mean that he is a publicity hunter
No, not at all. But being in poli
\ tiles, in touch with farming opera
tions. a lawyer by profession, a
t Vexine manuiaciurer, unu hi uiusc
tquch with nearly every movement,
hereabouts It was seldom that a
j news hound failed to find a story of
some kind after a chat with him
And. by way of digressing, he has
a better Idea of news value and Just
what kind of event is news titan
any other man in public life we've
ever come In contact with.
ft So. y'see, the department Is1
i Bioumlng today over Shelby’s loss
v-and the state's gain for personal
0ind selfish reasons as well as for
• the now missing link in friendship.
On a half dozen times after the
Central hotel fire we caught our
selves walking by habit over to the
darkened doorways where Stephen
son’s and the Cleveland drug store
were located prior to the blaze. Sev
eral times, chasing along in hnblt
M»al absent-minded fashion, we
Ttound ourselves almost ready to
turn the knob and ask for a dope
before we realized that the stores
were moved.
So, it may be that Charlie Bur
rus in the weeks to come will be
bothered often by our climbing up
the stairway, looking: lor Mr.
Gardner und a news story before
recalling that Mr. Gardner Is now
Oovernor Gardner and is dishing
out big-time news stories down in
Raleigh.
Such is life—but somewhere
about town we've got to locate that
thing called news so that the peo
ple, who seldom think ol the hunt
ing tactics that must be followed to
get news items, may have their
news and their sensations three
times each week before supper, a
meal some people—part of ’em
rich, and part Just strutttn’—refer
to as dinner.
JUST THE OTHER DAY THE
telephone rang in the news depart
ment of The Star office and we an
swered.
It was a lady calling a meat
market, but the "hello girl" seems
to have tangled up her number.
"Have you any brains?' came the
voice over the wire.
Before blinking over the form of
our reply we answered: "No, we
haven't any brains here. This is
The Star office."
P. S. Judge John Mull tokl us
that cne and he didn't tell it on
us, but on another telephone in
town, yet in fear of physical vio
lence we tell it on ourselves in
passing it along. The other fellow
is rather hefty and may be some
what sensitive about the stuffing of
his skull.
SPEAKING OF THIS AND
that; a Shelby father tells us that
one of his daughters gave him a
box of cigars for a Christmas gift.
And how it pleased him! But the
>ther day the bill came along to
him.
She had 'em charged!
WIPE THI8 ODE OF COFFIN S
appearing in the Greensboro News,
across your spectacles, all ye who
are talking and debating taxes;
You want r. law, I want a law,
All o' God’s chlllun want a law;
When I git to Heaven goln' pass
me a law
I kin keep one day out o' seven.
Heaven! Heaven!
Everybody pr.ssln’ laws ain’t
goln' there;
Heaven! Heaven!
Ain't nobody goln’ to be la wed
In God’s Heaven.
You don't want no tax. I don't
want no tax,
All o’ God's chillun don't want no
tax;
1 But we can't lengthen school 'thout
facin' the facts
They’ll be twelve-months schools
In God's Heaven.
Heaven! Heaven!
Jist passln' laws ain't glttin’ no
where;
| Heaven! Heaven!
Legislatures don't meet in God's
Heaven.
