increase of $750,000 over the current
equalizing fund.

Poston To Be
Acting Police
Chief Here
Formal Resignation Turned In
Yesterday By Chief Richards,
Effective Friday.
Beginning- Friday, March 1, Po
liceman McBride Poston, veteran
officer of the Shelby force, will be
come acting chief of the local po
lice department succeeding the
present chief, A. L. Richards.
Verifying a report published by
The Star some days back. Chief
Richards Monday filed his formal
resignation with Mayor W. N. Dor
sey and it was accepted.
Shake-Up On.
Although very little Information
is being formally given out at the
City Hall, rumors indicate that
there may be other changes in the
police department. This is further
indicated by the statement of May
or Dorsey in saying that "Begin
ning on the first, Policeman Poston
will be acting chief of the police
department.” By this statement it
cannot be told whether Poston, If
he proves a success as acting chief,
will eventually be made the regu
lar chief or not. It may be that
Poston will act as chief until the
end of the present administration
as the municipal election is not so
many weeks off.
Reports yesterday about the up
town section had it that other
changes in the force had already
been made, or would be made, but
these reports were not verified by
the mayor although he Indicated
that, such could happen.
.Just where Chief Richards plans
to locate he has not stated as yet,
but close friends of the officer who
leaves the force Friday stated sev
eral days back, when mention was
first made about his resignation,
that he was considering another
position.
An Ex-Service Man.
The new acting chief, known to
the city as “Mac,” is the oldest
member of the city force from point
of service in the blue uniform al
though he is in years still a young
man. During the World war he
served overseas and had a good
service record. In addition to serv
ing on the police force here he has
been a member oFThe police force
at Kings Mountain, and at one time
years ago was a guard on the No.
6 gang. Since he has been advanc
ed to acting chief by Mayor Dor
sey it is recalled by friends that the
police head and the new sheriff,
who goes into office soon, should
be able to work together due to past
acquaintance when Poston served
under Chief Irvin Allen on the
Kings Mountain force.

headed for Greensboro. His problem
was solved, It appeared.
Buf cars need gas. And gas costs

slowly sinking from an illness with
