Hamrick Will Not
Make Board Race
Present No. 4 Alderman Not To
Seek Reelection This
Mr. Alger V. Hamrick, present
city alderman in ward four, will
not be a candidate for reelection he
informed The Star today.
“I have definitely made up my
mind not to run,” he said, "and my
decision is due entirely to private
business reasons as I feel as if it
will not be fair to my business and
to my family for me to continue
taking so much time from my
business. I have never worked with
any group I liked better than the
present aldermen and the admin
istration officials and it is not be
cause of any hard feeling between
me and anyone else that X am not
running; my decision is due solely
to business reasons.”
Mr. Hamrick's decision not to run
leaves only one candidate for al
derman in ward four—Zollle J.

Harding. Mrs. Thacker is the
daughter ot the late Ke\ Tom
Dixon, of Shelby, and a sister of
Torn Dixon, the author
The following Washington dis
patch by H. E. C. Bryant tells about
Mrs. Thacker’s prospective book:
Gaston B. Means, former resi

spicuous figure in the scandals
surrounding the Harding adminis

conspiracy, is preparing to reveal
some of the “inside facts" sur
rounding those turbulent times. He
is furnishing The materials for a
book now being prepared by May
Dixon Thacker. another former
North Carolinian who is the wile oi
a Presbyterian evangelist and sis
ter of Thomas Dixon, noted author.
Means says he is pledged to secrecy
on the contents of the book until
it is published, but admits that it
contains many “cold facts” which
have heretofore never been reveal
ed. Moreover, he says that it will
not be a criticism or a defense of
the Harding regime but rather an
attempt to give some of the facts
as he saw them. The former de
partment of justice operative, who
is admitted to be cue of the best
investigators m the country, be
lieves that conditions are unchang
ed by the revelations of the Hard

tem is just as corrupt. Many of his
denials will go into the book.

Hoover Appeals For
Observance Of Laws
Says Murder Can Hr < omniittrri
With Impunity In larger
Ne'v York, April 24.—President
Hoover stated Monday that In many
large American cities murder ear.
apparently be committed with im
punity. and he appealed for obcdi*
ence to laws of all kinds.
Speaking at the annual luncheon
of the Associated Press, the presi
dent said in his first public address
since his inauguration that rob
bery and burglary are far more
common here than in Great Britain
and that even in such p-.emediated
crimes as embezzlement and for
gery, our record stands no compari
son with stabe nations.
"No part of the country, rural or
urban, is immune.'’ he said. "Life
and property are relatively more
unsafe than in any other civilized
country in the world.”
Prefacing his remarks with a
tribute to the late Melville E. Stone,
former general manager of the As
sociated Press, the president began
the reading of his prepared ad
dress with the statement that he
considered enforcement and obedi
ence to the laws the dominant is
sue before the American people.
Mr. Hoover made it plain early in
his address that his concern was
with all laws, with law itself, as law
and not particularly with the 18th
amendment or any single piece of
"In order to dispel certain illu
sions in the public mind on the sub
ject,” he said, "let me say at once
that while violations of law have
been increased by inclusion of
crimes under the eighteenth amend
ment and by the vast sums that are
poured into the hands of the crim
inal classes by the patronage of il
licit liquor by otherwise responsi
ble citizens, yet this is but one
segment of our problem. 7 have pur
posely cited the extent of murder,
burgary, robbery, forgery and em
bezzlement, for but a small per
centage of these can be attributed
to the eighteenth amendment."
Suggestion To Press.
The president suggested as a
crime deterrent that newspaper
publishers invest the acts of en
forcement officers with some of the
glamor of romance and heroism
'which our American imaginative
those who
i minds throw around
break the law "
| As he did in his inaugural ad
dress seven weeks ago, the presi
dent placed squarely before the
'people their responsibility ill the
matter of law observance and said
the rcalproblem was to awaken the
consciousness, the moral sense, of
the citizen and, if necessary, to seg
regate where they could do no
1 further harm ‘degenerate minds,"
! which have not the intelligence and
the moral instinct to obey the law
as a matter of conscience.
‘‘If a law Is wrong, its rigid en
foreemen is the surest guaranty of
its repeal." he said. "If it Is right,
its enforcement Is the quickest me
thod of compelling respect for it.”
In his address, which was broad
cast to th? county over two nation
al radio chains, Mr. Hoover warned
that in the desire of the people to
be merciful the pendulum had
swung in favor of the prisoner and
far away from the protection of so
ciey; that the sympathetic mind of
the American people has swung too
far from the family of the murder
ed to the family of the murderer.
Steady Process.
From his own administration, the
chief executive pledged a strength
ening of the law enforcement
agencies by orderly processes, week
by week, month by month, year by
year, by steady pressure. steady
weeding out of incapable and neg
ligent officials, by promotion and
recognition for those who do their |
duty, and by the most rigid scru
tiny of the records and mental atti
tudes of all persons suggested bv
appointment to official posts In the
law enforcement machinery.
Registration Picks
Up For City Voting
Quite a number of new voters
have registered in the last day or
so for the approaching city elec
tion, according to Registrar Mike
H. Austell, and the number of new
voters registered since the books
opened total between 75 and 100.
he says. He also reminds that reg
istration for county or school elec
tions does not entitle a Shelby cit
izen to vote in the city election un
less he or she is also registered on
the city book.

in today's Star, written piior to the

nunciation of the destruction of
