•Rooster” Bridges Leads Batting
Attack With Boston Hurling
Playing in Gaffney Wednes
day the Shelby highs gave the
strong Gaffney high baseball
team its second defeat in 32
consecutive games by winning
from the South Carolinians by
a 6 to 3 score.
Both teams secured six hits each
and an odd feature of the hitting
was that one player on each team
secured half of his team's hits.
"Rooster" Bridges hit safely three
times for Shelby and scored two
runs, while Huskey, Gaffney center
gardener, secured three of his
team’s six hits.
"Mud” Poston. Shelby right
holder, pitched the game for Shel

blows well scattered to turn in a
line pitching performance.
With Poston on the mound the

Editor Cleveland Star;
This is the closing of a gala sea
son for Polkville high school; while
age and adolescence has met on
common ground, where pupils, pa
trons and preceptors have all been
blended in a round of enjoyment.
This was initial session and was
in every respect, a signal success.
The temple of knowledge is a tasty
and commodious building, divided
into 16 class rooms, one for office
of president and the well-assorted
library; together with an up-to
date auditorium containing 550
modem opera chpirs.
Prof. J. L. Dennis is principal and
is supported by Messrs. N. R. Moss,
H. D. Harrill. Mesdames Dorcas
Covington, Blanche G. Latttmorc,
Eugenia Elliott, Whitworth, Misses
Alice Poteat, Ruth Smith, Marilda
Eaker and several others, all in- i
dustrlous and capable.
The first feature of finals was ,
the high school operetta, entitled !
“Bettie Lou.” The presentation and
cast of characters were of a very i
high order, the play was heartily I
and raptuously received, and door
receipts were $93.
Later a spirited declamatory and
recitation contest of very high or
der was presented, and an aggreg
ation of talent was evinced and
very thorough preparation.
The grade schools operetta was
: presented, and the auditorium was
crowded to suffocation. The cast
of characters, the presentation and
variety of costumes were all evi
dences of diligent study, bright tal
ent and careful training.
The annual sermon was a fea
ture of Sunday afternoon. May 5,
1929, and the minister selected was
Rev. L. B. Knox, of Bessemer City.
Rev. G. W, Williams offered in

The text of sermon was: “For I
am not ashamed of the gospel of
Christ which is the power of God
to every one that helieyet-h." The
speaker delineated the character of
Saul of Tarsus, a Roman citizen,
a Pharisee, but a bigot who was
persecuting the Nazerenes until his
miraculous conversion, when he
became Paul the evangel of Chris
tianity and a world figure for all
time. His zeal, courage, and energy
was presented to the graduating
class as worthy of emulation, and
the fact of his being the greatest
scholar of the new sect was stress
ed as a means of power

resumed his plowing and so turned
