Urges School Board
Note Importance
Of Athletics Here
Thinks Athletics Important Factor
To Shelby Youth. Praises
Shelby Instructors.
To the Incoming School Board:
Your electorate readily appreci
ates the position under which your
board will labor. Undoubtedly you
will be confronted with many
problems which you will find diffi
cult to solve. You will be constant
ly haunted by the matter of fin-!
ance, or rather, the lack of It. You
will be forced to inaugurate many
and stringent economies to stay
within the present budget. Your
good judgment must be subjugated
to meet the expediency. Your elec
torate will doubtless expect you to
maintain the high standard of
schools that other patriotic boards
have given us, and do so with less
money. When you scan the budget
for possible deductions your eyes
will naturally turn to the extra
curriculum activities and among
then you will find athletics.
Now, if there is any one factor
vitally important to schools it is
athletics. Nothing is more firmly
grounded in our national educa
tional program; nothing can take
precedence over it for gathering and
maintaining morale. Indeed, it is
so firmly entrenched that it has
become a part of the life of every
community in this great nation. To
that ccxntiguency of every elector
ate who would grab the hands of
time and turn the world back fifty
years these facts are unknown. To
them a football team represents
twenty-two cussing, bleeding, fight
ing maniacs running helplessly in
the confines of a hundred yard
field. And in the like manner, the
other sports. They fail to discern
the beneficial qualities which are
too numerous for me to enumerate
here.
In the development of the Shelby
schools athletics has played a major
part. Under the capable adminis
tration of two of the most efficient
coaches in the state we have made
rapid strides toward the permanent
establishment of Shelby's name in
the state's athletic hall of fame. In
every department we have found
ourselves capable of competition
with cities several times our size.
In the colloquilism of the sporting
world we have developed into a
menancing “threat.’ The state
knows that Shelby generally brings
home the 'bacon.’ Athletics have
done more to advertise Shelby than
any other factor of our school sys
tem, and the question now arises
as to whether or not we can afford
to repudiate the effective work that
has been accomplished in the past
by summarily striking athletics
from the life of our schools.
We rise to heartily endorse the
present athletic administration. Its
record has been enviable one. Let
us go forward. The fate of this mat
ter lies in your hands for solution
and we trust that it shall receive
your consideration.

Methodist Board
Assails Tobacco
Washington. — An impending
rift In the ranks of northern
and southern Methodism is seen
as quite likely as the result of
the Methodist board of tem
perance here, which has long
been active in prohibition cir
cles.
Taking the field against the
cigarette evil and the tobacco trust,
Rev. Clarence True Wilson, head of
the Methodist board, bitterly criti
cised the tobacco trust in an address
which is the first time that or
ganization has publicly gone out
against the cigarette. This action
Is expected to immediately draw
the the of critics who have looked
with alarm on church activities.
Southern Methodism has bene
fited greatly from the Duke mil
lions, through Duke University, one
of the heaviest endowed colleges in
the country as well as through
pensions for preachers and other
assistance. The Duke millions were
made through the American To
bacco company and there have al
ways been friendly relations be
tween the Dukes and Methodism In
the south. As a result it is expect
ed that the southern church people
will thank the Rev. Mr. Wilson has
gone too far this time.
Numerous attempts have been
made to bring about a closer rela
tion between the Methodists of the
north and the south. Such a pro
gram seems further away with the
new turn of events.
Treacher’s Wife Free.
Panama City, Fla.—It took Just
30 minutes early this morning for
a jury in circuit court here to ac
quit Mrs Jonnie Word, 55, of a
charge of murder in connection
with the death of her husband, the
Rev. J. P. Word, retired Presby
terian minister.
Mrs. Word received the verdict
calmly. Seated beside her w’hen the
jury returned its verdict were her
two daughters by a former mar
riage. The defense followed the de
cision of a coroner’s jury that the
aged minister committed suicide.

Mm. Grover Eskridge Comes Near
Having Blood Poison. Costner
Teaches Buffalo Class.
(Special to The Star.)
Double Shoals, May 7.—The farm
ers are at a standstill now. The
rain stopped the planting with only
about one-half the cotton seed
planted in this community and
very little corn.
J. W. Costner taught a class at
Buffalo Baptist church last week
in Sunday school work. "Building
a Standard Sunday School” was the
book used. A fine class was present
each night and on Saturday night
the superintendent from Double
Shoals with his officers and teach
ers was present and demonstrated
a weekly teachers meeting for the
good of the Buffalo church. The
program was enjoyed by all.
Buffalo Sunday school is well on
the way toward the standard of ex
cellence. They have the material to
work with and are people who love
the Lord.
Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Spangler of
8helby visited their daughter, Mrs.
H. C. Royster on last Sunday.
Several from the Double Shoals
church went to Zion Sunday.
Mrs. Grover Eskridge has been
very sick for the past week suffer
ing with an Infection from a scratch
which came very near being blood
poison, but she is very much im
proved now.
Miss Nellie Carpenter of Lawn
dale spent Monday night with
Moaelle Costner.
Suffering a heart attack when
his fiancee returned his engagement
