Wrong Information
Given As To Fire
Mayor Wishes Those' Who Report
Fires jo Be Specific As
To Location.
A fire call yesterday caused no
little confusion to the fire depart
ment and has moved Mayor Dor
sey to request that those who re
port fires, be specific as to the loca
tion. A fire call came with the in
formation that the fire was at the
house on the “end of N. LaFayette
street.” The department reported
and found no trace of a fire. Then
they were told that the fire was on
‘‘end of S. LaFayette street” where
upon another race through con
gested traffic was made. Again the
location was wrong and finally the
fire was found to be grass in the!
yard of a residence on S. LaFayette
street near the ward school build
ing.
Mayor Dorsey says this confusion
often arises, because a citizen in
confusion gives the wrong location.
He asks that those who report fires
be specific and careful and that
some one stand in front of the
house where there is a fire and di
rect the fire fighters to the proper
place.
An alarm this morning took the
department to the Union Bank
building where an awning over the
» wore room recently vacated by the
A. and P. Tea store was ablaze

Fearless “Slim," The Lone Eagle,
To Wed Daughter Of
Ambassador.
Mexico City, Mexico, Feb. 13.—
“The Lone Eagle” will start flying
double along about next June.
Ambassador and Mrs. Morrow to
day announced here the engage
ment of their daughter, Anne Spen
cer Morrow, to Col. Charles A.
Lindbergh, the first man to span
the Atlantic by air and a general
idol of all nations since his sur
prising flight from New York to
Paris.
The announcement removed from
the eligible list one of the two most
prominent matrimonial prospects,
the other being tlie Prince of
Wales. And, incidentally, the an
nouncement settled definitely the
discussion as to which of the Mor
row girls Lindbergh loved since ru
mors have had him engaged to both
Anne Spencer Morrow and her
sister, Elizabeth.
The fearless young aviator first
met his fiancee a year ago last
December when he flew to Mexico
City while on his good will tour
and was tlife guest of the American
ambassador and his family, then
he made another visit there last j
November.
Feared Ills Safety.
Oddly enough the greatest fears
for Lindbergh's safety came on the
day his engagement was announc
ed. Early yesterday morning the
lone aviator left Belize, while mak
ing his inaugural round trip flight,
over the new canal zone air mail
route, for Havana, but when he
did not arrive for hours after he
was expected fears began to be
felt for his safety. He carr\c in,
however, to Havana at <:48 in the
evening.
Queried by newspapermen at
Havana about his engagement Col.
Lindbergh informed that, he would,
confine his remarks “to aviation.
But when told that press wires had
already brought in the announce
ment he said, “Well, then you know
all about it and I have nothing to
say.”

was stated that Norman Wilson,

Panic, Edison Declares In
Birthday Queries; His Replies
Famous Inventor Answers Usual
Barrage Of Question?. Talks
About Rubber?
Fort Meyers, Fla., Feb. 12.—
Thomas Alva Edison, the snowy
haired creative genius, became 82
years old yesterday.
In robust health and high spirits
the aged inventor received con
gratulations from President-elect
Herbert Hoover, who made a 48
hour journey by automobile and
boat to bring his personal greet
ing. Henry Ford and Harvey Fire
stone, old cronies of Mr. Edison,
joined In paying tribute to their
famous friend of nearly 40 years.
Rises Early.
The octogenarian arose shortly
after daybreak aa is his custom. He
then faced a firing squad of writ
ers and cameraman for his annual
interview in the morning and at
noon he took the next president,
Ford and Firestone on a motor tour
of this city. During the automobile
trip, covering five miles, Mr. Edi
son and Mr. Hoover received the
acclaim of some 20,000 who lined
the streets to applaud the incom
ing chief executive and the electri
cal wizard.
Mr. Edison and his distinguished
guests retired to his tropical estate
for a birthday luncheon and several
hours of conversation before Mr.
Hoover boarded his yacht late to
day to embark on a fishing trip.
Tonight the inventor brought the
day to a close with a short radio
talk over a coast to coast hook-up.
When the corps of reporters fin
ished with the electrical wizard at
the morning interview they had
learned that he foresees a greater
era of national prosperity under
the Hoover administration, but
predicts an "ultimate panic” un
less the increasing stock specula
tion is checked.
Possible.
For the first time since he con
centrated his energy three years
ago on the problem of finding a
plant capable of producing the na
tion’s rubber supply in the United
States, Mr. Edison admitted that
“it might be possible in the f uture
to grow rubber and compete with
the tropics."
Other questions submitted to Mr.
Edison besides the one concerning
Hoover prosperity and his answers
were:
Q.—What are the dangers, if any,
of the increasing stock specula
tion?
A.—Ultimate panic. Loss of con
fidence.
Q.—Have you ever given any
thought to the chemical develop
ment of synthetic rubber?
A.—No. It has no future when
rubber is quoted at 23 cents per
pound.
Q.__Will the manufacture ever be
extended to the point where it will
be used for the pavement and road
service?
A—Yes. Short sections have been
in use in Scotland lor five years
with great success,
Future Results.
Q.—Hew will the success of your
rubber txnerunents affect the fu
! ture agricultural prosperity of
Florida?
A.—I believe those states border
ng on ilie Gulf of Mexico car,
! grow plant rubber with profit to
the termer in case, of war prices,
tut it might be possible in the fu
ture to grow rubber and compete
with the tropics.
Q—Is it true tliat you have
found r. plant which promises to
solve the rubber production prob
lcm* in the United States, and do
you hope to develop1 it this winter?
A.—I have found over 1,200^
plants to produce rubber, about 40
of them will be cultivated on a large
scale.
Q.—In cities, comparable In size
’ and general conditions to Fort My
ers *20.000) should the municipality
own and operate its own public
utilities or purchase the service
Irom private concern.
A.—Municipalities should not
own or conduct the public utilities.
But it should control their opera
tion.
Q—Is It advisable to appropri
ate an additional $24,000,000 at this
time for prohibition enforcement?
A.—Yes.
Q.—Should the United States try
to have the most powerful navy in
the world?
A.—It should build in parity with
England.
Q.—Will the various electric lights
now used for medical treatment be
utilized for elimination to bring a
greater era of health in sections of
the country where people are forc
ed to live indoors for a consider
able period of the year?
A.—Mr. Edison crossed out this
question with the statement that
“this question is too ridiculous to
answer.”

Bailey Seeks
Simmons Seat
Sonic Want McLean To Kun. Gard
ner And Morrison Not 'Friend
ly To Bailey.
Raleigh. Feb. 12.—J. Will Bailey
has already begun his campaign
for the senatorial seal occupied by
Senator Simmons. Mr. Bailey is
conferring with members of the
legislature and visiting political
leaders in an effort to reassemble
the organization which supported
htm against Governor McLean in
i the 1920 gubernatorial primary, and
to secure the support of the Smith
| Democratic organisation in the last
| campaign.
Mr. Bailey, it Is understood, will
run against Senator Simmons will
ingly. but if Governor McLean en
ters the race, he would withdraw,
in exchange for McLean’s support
in the 1932 gubernatorial primary,
and support McLean against Sim
mons.
Although Ex-Governor Cameron
Morrison Is understood to be urg
ing Governor McLean to run
against Simmons in 1930, in order to
pave the way for his own candidacy
against Overman in 1932. officials
and friends of Governor McLean do
not believe that he will oppose
Simmons, or support Bailey under
any circumstances.
Political observers here, however,
do not concede that Mr. Bailey will
have a very good chance against
Simmons, although it is belteved
that with the addition of the anti
Simmons followers to his own fol
lowers he would make a better
showing in the 1930 senatorial race
against Simmons than he would in
the 1932 gubernatorial primary.
Governor Gardner and the state
organization would be against Mr.
Bailey :n either race, for the gov
ernor and Bailey are old enemies
Bailey fought lor Morrison against
Gardner in 1920. .and his race in
1924 against McLean did not please
either Morrison or Gardner, as both
were McLean supporters.

A couple days following the sec
ond autopsy on the body of Mrs.
Rate King at Kings Mountain %
report Issued from Yerk, 8. C„ de
clared that doctors performing the
autopsy had found a second gash
on the head. At the time Cleveland
county physicians, who aided in
the autopsy, stated that they had
made an agreement to make no
comment on the autopsy other than
their official report, but privately
they declared that the report of a
second gash was untrue, at they
found only one cut That correction
is borne out in a news dispatch
from York today.
York. S. C., Feb. 13.-It was in
dicated yesterday that the state of
South Carolina through her solici
tor. John Lyles Olenrt, of Chester,
would resist vigorously a motion of
counsel for a change of venue for
the dead woman’s accused husband
Raft King, if such motion is made. _
To Employ Added cWnseL
Belief that citizens of Sharon
and York would employ additional
counsel to assist Solicitor J. Lyles
Glenn in his prosecution ol the
case was fostered by the. statement
that several prominent m^h that
they would be glad to contribute to
a fund for that purpose.
A decision regarded as definite
has been arrived at in a group of
local men to retain a prominent
young attorney to assist the prose
cution. - * ” ’ " . ’
No Gash In Head.
It was learned in Sharon yester
day that a widely circulated state
ment that the autopsy at Kings
Mountain, N. C„ last Friday re
vealed a deep wound on the crown
of Mrs. King's head in addition to
the gash cn her forehead; is in
correct. Dr. Joseph H. Says, one of
the state’s physicians who assisted
in the autopsy in Thomas Fulton's
undertaking establishment at King’s
Mountain last Friday; told this oer
respondent. “There was' no deep
wound on the crown of Mrs. King’s
head. The only wound on the
head was a cut on the forehead
which extended up into tier hair.
That wound was In the nature of
a tear, and while It extended down
to the skull it did not fracture the
skull."
