MOTHERS’ DAY
Sunday is Mother's Day—Whether mother is far or near, do not for-1
get her on this important occasion. A few kind words, a little, inexpen
sive gif', mean more to mother titan the grandest eloquence and the most
elaborate entertainments mean to anyone else.
Many a mother, separated by distance from her children, pining for
them, is made clad on this day by effectionatc messages and thoughtful
gifts, Others, fortunate enough to have their children about them, beam
with delight at their manifestations of love on this day.
Of course every day should be Mother’s Day—never for a moment
should her kindness and self-sacrifice be forgotten. Too often, however,
mothers are taken for granted, though experience has shown to mankind
that the love of a mother is the only really unselfish love that one is
liable to meet in a lifetime.
Those whose mothers have gone realize what a precious boon has
passed from their lives. They. too. may observe Mother's Day. If your
lnot’-er has 'pa - "di en, put a flower at her resting place .... surely she

Gray Vets Are Few
In Annual Meeting
Staged Here Today
( apt. Dickson Is Oldest. "Uncle
Billy" Putnam Is Nrvl. Only A
Score Here.
The Riay-haired veterans of
Cleveland county who formed a
part of the famous pray col
umns that followed lee and
Jackson into battle for the Con
federacy fathered here today
for their annual reunion and
dinner, and only a few more
than a score answered the roll
call.
Around 70 Confederate veterans
are still living in the county, but
by 10 o'clock this morning only 22
were physically able to Journey to
the court house front which point
they were motored to the Central
school auditorium for the reunion
exercises and the playing of their
favorite tune, the stirring "Dixie."
by the Shelby high band. Follow
ing the short program there the vet
erans were carried to the Woman's
club room where their annual din
ner was served by the Daughters
of the Confederacy.
Capt. Ed Dickson, of Fullston
valiant warrior of the Lost Cause,
was the oldest veteran tn attend
ance, his age being 96. ‘‘Uncle Billy"
Putnam, of Shelby, aged 94, was
the second oldest, while "Uncle
Jimmy" Hord, who will be 90 in
July, was the third. Both Capt.
Dickson and Mr, Hord plan to at
tend the general reunion in Char
lotte next month, while Mr. Putnam
isn't sure as yet whether he will go.
Two Confederates In
Cleveland, Officers
In Two Big Battles
Capt. Dickson And Lieut. Parker
Served At Gettysburg And
Chickamauga Battles.
(By Prof. W. E White. Cleveland
County Historian'.
As the tenth of May arrives the
minds of Southern people naturally
turn to deeds of valor and heroism.
This is Memorial day in the South,
and our minds revert to the gallant
ry of the Confederate heroes who
bravely championed the “Lost
Cause."
Cleveland county perhaps has a
distinction in Southern history to
day that does not belong to any oth
er county in the South. Within our
borders is found two living ex-Con
federate officers who participated
in the two greatest battles of the
Civil war. One of these officers
was wounded at Gettysburg, while
the other lost an arm at Chicka
mauga.
When Gen. Robert E. Lee in
vaded Pennsylvania in the summer
of 1863, there was within the ranks
of the army Capt. E. Dixon, of
Fallston. Capt. Dickson was a brave
and efficient officer, and was in
the heroic charge led by General
Pickett and Pettigrew on the third
day of the battle at Gettysburg. In
this gory battle Capt. Dixon was
wounded in the heroic effort to
drive the Pederals from their
stronghold.
After the Confederate misfortune
at Gettysburg, General Lee sent
General Longstreet to the assistance
of General Braxton Bragg, the
Confederate commander in the
west at the time. Being reenforced
by General Longstreet's corps, Gen
eral Bragg joined battle with his ad
versary. General Rosencrans. at
Chickamauga. One of the officers
who took part in this, the greatest
battle of the west, was Lieut. Dc
vaney Parker. Lieut. Parker, though
a native of Cleveland county, en
tered the service from Jackson
county, of this state. Like Capt.
Ed Dixon, Lieut. Parker was a brave

Meet Hizzoner,
Mayor McMurry
Above, ladies and gentlemen, is
the first newspaper photograph ever
published of Shelby's next mayor,
Sim A. Mc.Murry, elected last Mon
day by a majority over two opposing
candidates. Mayor-elect McMurry
will take office on Saturday, June 1.
I Star Photo).
McMurry Making No
Slate Until After
He Takes The Oath
Will Walt Until He Is Mayor. Siren
Signal At Noon May Be
Stopped.
Mayor-elect S. A. McMurry let
it be known today that he is not
giving out advance information as
to the employes of his administra
tion until he and his new board arc
ready to take office, and the mat
ter of selecting the working force
of the city will not be taken up
I until after Monday's run-off elect
i lion when the mayor-elect may hold
I a conference with his board.
“I do not think there is any
necessity of outlining what we hope
to do before wc get ready to do it,”
he declared.
His statement leaves unanswered
the growing question as to whether
or not there will be changes at the
City Hall, and if so, how many. Mr.
McMurry and the new board may
inform employes that they will be
retained or replaced prior to the
first of June but it was definitely
indicated today that the announce
ments would not be made public
until the new administration takes
the oath of ofiice. or just before.
What Of Siren?
A rumor of considerable interest
about the city is that the mayor
elect and possibly several members
of the newly elected board are not
overly anxious about continuing the
custom of blowing the fire siren at
the noon hour, and this may be the
last month Shelby citizens will hear
what has come to be known as
"the city dinner horn.'’
Joint Postal Meeting
At Hollis May 30th
There will be a joint postal meet

these joint meetings for several
years, alternating between the two
counties and for the Hollis meeting
an all day program is being ar
ranged with speeches, music and
a picnic dinner. The program will
be announced later.

Election
Monday Is
Very Quiet
Runoff Race Between Wuhburn
And Ledford lias I’oliliral
DopesteiA tiursslng.
J.iist. v. hat '.vill happen In Shelby s
runoff election Monday has even tin
Most (ontlclmt. of the pollttail pro
pin !s i-t the t nvn guessing, for it. is
the first runofl rare of the type in
hr history of the (own.
Due to a change in the city: elee
; tion law by the 'list legislature it
will be recalled that a second city
I election was made necessary by the
fact that neither 1’. M Washburn
or J. F. Icdford, candidates for
alderman from Ward One. received
a majority vote last Monday and the
new election law says a candidate
in Shelby nowadays must receive a
majority vote.
Just how many Shelby voters will
be interested enough in the runoff
to vote is the big puzzle. Some are
of the opinion that four to six hun
dred votes will be cast to decide the
fourth member of the city board,
but most of the observeis are in
clined to believe that not more than
250 or 330 votes will be cast. As a
matter of precaution, however. The
Star print shop today is printing
1,000 tickets, and only those unus
ually optimistic are of the opinion
that there will not be enough tick
ets.
May Change I.aw.
Since a runoff race for one aider
men bobbed up in the first election
after the change in the city elec
tion law there is a probability that
the law may be changed again, ac
cording to talk on the streets. The
change proposed is that a runoff
race not be made mandatory ex
cept for the office of the mayor,
with the provision that in the race
lor the board berths that the sec
ond high candidate may withdraw
in favor of the high candidate if
he so desires.
Errors In Votes
As Given By Star
In Wednesday's issue of The Star
giving the official vote of the city
election of Monday several mistakes
were inadvertently made in the
proof-reading. In Ward One the
figures of Wednesday's paper had
P. M. Washburn as the low candi
date when in reality he was the
high candidate for alderman In that
ward. The same mistake occurred
in Ward Four where Z. J, Thomp
son was given the least number of
votes when he really received the
majority.
The official vote in the two wards
should have been as follows:
Ward one. alderman—P. M.
Washburn. 787; J F. Ledford. 609;
Boyce Dellinger, 25C.
Ward Four, Alderman—Z. J,
Thompson. 893; T. P. Eskridge,
752.

ied-lettcr event In school circles
here for many years, will be held
despite the fact that it has once
been called off, and the date is set

Back a lew weeks when it ap
peared as if the high school, due
to a financial cramp, would not be
able to complete a full year, the
junior class marched up and offer
ed to pass up the red-letter event,
which meant so much to them and
the seniors, and contribute the
hard-earned money they had ac
cumulated for the banquet to help
I keep the schools open for the ninth
month. Their move in generously
giving up an affair which has been
passed down to them by the classes
of other years won the admiration
of the entire town.
But now that near 1.400 Slielby
citizens have endorsed a bond is
sue assuruig the full school term
the banquet Is back on the sche

Icndont Soon.
All the teachers in the Shelby
'•■liool system next year will
receive their salary upon the
basis of the stale schedule
with no supplement, it Is an
nounced following a Joint meet
ing held this week by the retir
ing school board and the school
hoard elected In Monday's elec
tion. This means that the
trarliing espouse in the city
schools will be decreased sever
al thousand dollars from the
present annual teaching cost.
All members of the two schoc.
boards, with the exception of ore
new board member, were presen
and school cost statistics, the salarj
schedule, a tentative budget,. an«
other Items were presented and dis
cussed by the two boards. Supt. I
I C. Griffin, who assisted In revising

Name Teachers.
In addition to declaring that the
state salary schedule would be
strictly adhered to. the two boards
also reelected all the present prin
cipals and teachers except those
who have already made known theii
intention of teaching elsewhere next
year. Due to the fact that one
member of the new board was ab
sent the matter of naming the new
superintendent, to succeed Mr.
Griffin, was deferred until a later
meeting.
Twenty-five or more school of
ficials, it is understood, have ap
plied for the position of superin
tendent her* and the name of the
successful applicant will likely be
made public by the school board at
an early date.
Married Teachers.
No definite regulations regard
ing the matter were made by the
new board but the consensus of
opinion seemed to be that married
teachers would be reelected to the
faculty provided their work was oth
erwise satisfactory. This Is taken
i to mean that teachers who may
marry during the summer vaca
tions will retain their positions as
present married members of the
faculty were not included in the
regulation last year barring newly
married teachers. The prevailing
regulation barring tlte teachers
marrying during the school year will
likely be kept in force. It is under

will be in force here next year, is
as follows: Teachers with Class A
certificates $100 per month, $103 per
