Union Head In Tribute To Gov. Gardner’s Move Thomas F. McMahan Praises Exec utive For Recognizing State I-abor. Raleigh,—“We only wanted to pay our respects to a real governor who was given recognition to the American Federation of Labor by naming the president of the, state federation an the North Carolina industrial commission,’’ said Thomas F. McMahan, president of the United Textile Workers of America, in his greeting to Gov ernor O. Max Gardner this week. “They paid their respects and made no requests or demands of me,” said Governor Gardner after the meeting.” We had a nice little chat and I liked them,” he added. “I do not expect to go into any community in which the workers are flirting with the communist organi zation." Mr. McMahan said before his conference with Governor Gard ner. “If the workers are interested in that organization, wo will fold our tents and steal quietly away,” said Mr. McMahan, whose state ment was in reply to question of whether or not he had been or In tended to go to Gastonia in con nection with the strike at the Man ville-Jcnckes mills. Shuns Gastonia. "I have not and do not intend to go near Gastonia,” he said, inti mating that after the conference with Governor Gardner, he plan ned to go further south before re turning to New York. Mr. McMahan was accompanied by T. A. Wilson of Winston-Salem, president of the North Carolina Federation of La bor. Judging from Mr. McMahan’s conversation; his hope is that the employers will invite the United Textile Workers, affiliated with the American Federation of Labor, into their organizations, or at least per mit them to enter them, to organize workers, and thus avoid the com munist movement which is said to be present among the Gastonia strikers. Evidently, he holds out to employers of labor a midway ground compromise, which he be lieves will serve their purpose. Low Pay. The textile head said that even with the houses, heat, light and community houses, schools, church es and such other provisions made by the southern textile manufac turers, the wages paid the work ers is too low and the hours of work too long, as compared with those of workers elsewhere. He remind ed his hearers that the ultimate goal of the United Textile Workers is a 48-hour week. Gardner Garment Firm Gets Charter Incorporation Papers Filed. Patter son Springs Electric Charter.

Cleveland Has Less Debt Than Average County County Debts Is Only 1.1 Perrcnl Of Assessed Wealth. Just K Counties Better Off. Only nine North Carolina coun ities, all wealthy counties, have I smaller county debts in porportlon j to assessed valuation than Clcve ! land county, according to statistics furnished by the University News Letter. The total county, township and district debt of Cleveland county ts only 4.1 per cent of the assessed wealth over the county, or nearly three per cent less than the In debtedness of the average county in North Carolina. Actual Figures. The county-wide debt of Cleve land county is given as $447,250. while the district and township iii debteness is listed at $1,091,554. These two sums totalled is exactly 4.1 per cent of 'he county wealth I as placed upon the tax books The average for the state is 7 per cent. Gaston is the only neighboring county with as small a percentage of debt as this county, the two counties being tied for tenth place in the state. Tlie Catawba debt is 5,8 per rent of the valuation, the Burke debt 6 per cent of the total valuation, the I Lincoln debt 7.9 per cent of the ! county valuation, and the Ruther ! ford debt 9.9 per cent of the valu ation. The municipal debt aver age for tiie state is 12.4 per cent | of the assessed valuation, i The city and town indebtedness I of Cleveland county is listed as $1, i G68. 192, or 9.5 per cent of the as sessed valuation of city and town property in. the county. Concerning the indebtedness of the various counties, the University News Letter says: County debt alone is equivalent to 5.45 per cent of the total assessed valuation of the 100 counties, and the debt of townships and special taxing districts represents an ad ditional 1.55 per cent of the total valuation. Of course the latter is not an obligation of all the prop jerty in a county. Some areas have no local debt, others considerable; the average is 1.55 per cent of the valuation. Thus the aggregate In debtedness of the counties of the state and their subdivisions (ex clusive of incorporated towns) is 207 million dollars, or 7.0 per cent of the taxable wealth. The per centage range from 2.7 in Forsyth to 24 8 in Carteret. Altogether there are 31 counties where the figure is in excess of 10 per cent. Veteran Passes At Double Shoals John W.

I* _ Is there a bootleg war on in ] Shelby, or are certain citizens keeping under rover in aiding the city police force to put a crimp in the booie racket? One of the two things must be happening. Nearly every successful raid staged by offi cers here in recent weeks, and the raids have been numerous, were preceded, information has it by anonymous tips to officers, [ and those behind the tips seem | to know what they are talking about. An example of the reliability of the secrets a “little bird has been telling “Police Chief Mc Bride Poston was the raid last week in a Shelby home which has often been raided hereto fore without results, but this time the officers found what they were looking for. The mysterious tip—mysterious as far a.s the general public is con cerned. for Chief Poston may be a bit of a detective as well as an enforcement ofllcer—In formed the bluecoats that it might pay them to look undrr a certain rug in a certain room. The officers looked and they found a trapdoor and the trap door led to the bootleg. The raids of recent weeks have curbed activities In three boot legging factions, it is said, and it may be, or so some think, there is a bit of squealing going on due to rivalry in the hooeh trade.

Two Big Sport Events On Here This Week, Highs Play Charlotte—Roper-Roberts Bout Big Baseball Game Of Year On Friday. Fine Boxing Program Saturday Night. Two of the biggest sport events of the Spring season in Shelby are on tap this week. The first comes Thursday afternoon when the Charlotte high baseball outfit, rivals of Shelby for many years, come here for a return clash, then on Saturday night at the Thompson building Baxter Roper and “Turrl ble Terry” Roberts will meet each other in the headline bout, of a big boxing arid wrestling program stag ed by the local post of the Amerl- j can Legion. As far as local fans are concern- j ed a victory for Casey Morris' boys j tomorrow over the Queen City j baseball team would be almost as ' pleasing as another state baseball title for Shelby. In a game between the two teams at Charlotte early in the season rain ended the con test in the third frame with Char lotte leading. Since that time, how ever, Gastonia gave Charlotte a drubbing and Morris' bovs did the same trick for the Gaston lads. But the Charlotte coach has a young portside hurler^'Lcfty'’ Woods, who has always had Shelby's number and the outcome Friday is a toss- ; up for the dopesters. Coach Morris; may send cither 'Lefty'' Moore or Hamrick, the speed-ball right hander, against the visitors, and if j Woods hurls for Charlotte the1 Shelby chances will depend to a great extent on the hitting of the 1 young right-hand hitters such as! Farris. Hulick. Hippy, and Poston,! for Bridges, Gold, Harrelson and1 Lee. all left-hand sluggers , have shown very little hitting prowess against portsiders this year. Good Boxing. As to the boxing program, the Robert-Hoper affair will be a grudge fight both with the fighters and with fans. The two boxers are about evenly matched and in a former ap pearance here Roper won the de cision by a hair. Many fans were of the opinion that the decision could have gone to Roberts or been railed a draw. Saturday night the followers of the fistic game art hoping for a decisive outcome and both fights say they will present such In the form of a kayo Other portions of the card will see such local favorites as Joe Singleton. Babe Carr. Kid Free man, and Ernest Harris in action, not to mention the youngsters. Spangler and McSwain ] Kings Mountain Bank Awaiting Audit In Crash Many Rumor* \ float Regarding More To Avoid I o*sf* To Depositor*. —__ [ Gastonia. April 17. ThOu:.'h nu I mcrous unconfirmed rumors are learned regarding the disposition of the Commercial Bank and Trust company which was closed a week ago last Friday by resolution t t the board of directors and turned over to the state corporation com missioner. At the time of the failure it was stated that It was probable that all depositors would eventually be paid TOO cents on the dollar and that efforts were being made to reorganize the Institution Checking Assets. According to local banker*, who arc perhaps as well posted on the subject as any persons, tt will prob ably be 30 days before the state bank examiner, now in charge, can complete his checking of the banks assets and books Until that is done, it is stated, it is altogether unlikely that anything in the way of a step towards reorganization can be taken. During the past, lew days there have been several rumors to the effect that this or that well known bank or chain of banks In the state was considering taking tlie institu tion over and reorganizing it but this Is apparently talk without vis ible foundation. Many Loser*. Due to the fact that this bank had branches in Kings Mountain, Cherryvllle, Mount Holly and Un colnton, its failure was very keenly felt over a wide territory. A great many people lost their savings and business in this territory has un questionably suffered to some ex tent because of it. It's capital stock was $500,000 nnd its deposits ap proximately two and half mil lion.
