Star’s Plan To Get
Veterans To Reunion
At suggestion of The Star, every
Confederate veteran in the big
county of Cleveland will be privi
ledged to participate in the reunion
in Charlotte next June, and here is
set an excellent example for the
women in every county of the state.
Some counties have been accustom
ed to paying the way of local vet
erans to the general reunions—
Union county last year drummed
up every available veteran and gave
him a ticket to Little Rock and
back—but the Charlotte reunion
makes strong appeal to county
pride, in that every veteran in the
state able to travel, should be as
sured of the privilege of attendance.
It is the one and only reunion to
be staged in North Carolina—and
it will be the last for many veter
ans. The county budget for the
veteran and the reunion is a fine
idea. Cleveland lias started a mighty
fine thing on the way.

THE TALKING MOVIES HAVE
originated a word which, it is al
ready apparent, will be widely used.
For instance, out at the Cleve

young caddy who is an incurable
talker, and lie seems unable to re
sist talking just when some golfer
is making a shot. A good-humored
youngster, despite the fact that he

thing out of newspaper lines. Our
favorite tri-weekly carried a dis
patch Monday from Raleigh about
the high school basketball tourna
ment, and the article spoke of the
fact that "Milky" Gold, Shelby's
best known scholastic athlete, was
attracting considerable attention
"because he has captured three
Shelby teams." Since "Milky" has
been elected captain of three Shel
by teams by his teammates we
suppose it is not great an error, typo
graphical or otherwise, to say that
he has captured the esteem and
respect of the teams.

pose of international problems Just
adeptly as they do of neighborhood
matters, the boys have a new prob

For several years now. due to red
tape and aggravating costs at
tached to the procedure of getting
hitched in North Carolina. only
about one Cleveland county couple
out of seven gets married at home,
the others driving down to Gaff
ney or York for the ceremony. And
now to send the lone couple out of
seven scooting along with the
others to Gaffney comes a new
law recently created at Raleigh
which says that boys and girls de
ciding to get married must notify

forehand so that the register, in
stead of the minister or magistrate
may ask that long ahead of time
if anyone objects.
If the present trend to make the
embarking of a vessel on matri
monial seas in North Carolina more
difficult each year continues, then
in another five years or so a good
Barnum or C. C. Pyle could charge
admission prices for a public mar
riage. as such will be very unusual
hereabouts by that time.
Just what the boys over at the
court house, who thresh out the,
weighty prblems, will do about it
we do not know.

the state welterweight crown, but
becoming a bit heavy he was de

then named Eddleman as cham

The following dispatch out of

The Charlotte boxing commission
North Carolina representative of
the national boxing commission,
swung a wicked pruning knife to
night and when it finished three
North Carolina champions had
been shorn of their titles.
The victims were Jimmy Carlos,
erstwhile featherweight king;
Benny Mack, who sported the jun
ior lightweight togs and Spike Webb
king of the middleweight^.
Two of the titles were declared
open and hung up for aspiring
young pugs to shoot at. The third,
the middleweight, was handed over
to Buster Newberry, of Charlotte.
Carlos has left High Point and
migrated to other parts. Benny
Mack is doing a 20 year stretch in
the state penitentiary for killing a
man and Spike Webb must pay the
penalty for deserting the home
pastures for more fertile stamping
grounds in Florida.
The commission also passed
around a few plums.
A junior welterweight champion
was created in the state and Bat

er, named to rule over the ranks
until a better battler comes along.
Dave Eddleman, Charlotte, also
came in for something nice. Buster

of 140 pounds and the title was
handed to Eddleman on a silvery
