Stores To Close
Tuesday For Game
Of Baseball Here
Shelby Merchants To Permit Em
ployees To See Championship
Game.
The business houses of Shel
by, or at least the majority of
them, will be closed Tuesday,
tomorrow, afternoon from 3:30
until 6 o'clock so that employes,
store managers and owners may
take in the championship base
ball game at the city park here
between Coach Casey Morris’
Shelby Highs and Norwood. The
winner will go Into the finals
Saturday for the championship
of western Carolina,
The decision to close came to
day and is for several reasons.
First of all the merchants and
business men want to give their
employes an outing, knowing
that most of them will be anx
ious to see the big game. Then
it Ls felt that the majority of
the people in town during the
hours of the game would be at
the city park, and the third
reason is that Coach Morris
brought the game here so that
It might be seen by the home
town fans at a financial loss as
Norwood offered an extra guar
antee for the game to be played
there.
The executive committee of
the Merchants Association met
this morning and endorsed the
closing idea but due to the late
ness of the hour it was impos
sible to take a vote from all
merchants of the city, although
a majority of them were seen
and voted in favor of the clos
ing.

Not Over Ten
Gray. Vets Will
Visit Reunion
Very Few Of The 20 Here Friday
Han To Attend Big Char
lotte Reunion.
The staging of the united Con
federate reunion this year in Char-.
lotte brought the gathering the'
closest to Shelby and Cleveland
county it has ever been and it was
hoped that the majority of the
followers of Lee In this county
would be able to attend what may
be the last general reunion. But
the passing years have taken their
toll in lives and strength and it
is now doubtful if as many as 10
Cleveland veterans will be able to
gather once more with all their
Civil War comrades.
Of the 70 odd Confederate veterans
still living in the county only 20
were able to attend the dinner and
program given by the Daughters
of the Confederacy, and of the 20
only three or four, according to
Mrs. W. B. Nix. were definitely
planning to attend the big reunion
in Charlotte early in June. Others
talked as if they might should
their health permit, while still
others expressed the desire to go
but were reluctant about deciding
for fear they could not make the
trip. All who will go will not like
ly remain for but one day of the
program. Those who do attend will
be given a free trip down and back
by the Kiwanis and Rotary clubs,
the Daughters of the Confederacy
and divisions of the Woman’s club
upon suggestion made by The Star.
Enjoyed Day.
The 20 veterans and the 17 wives
and widows here for the exercises
last Friday thoroughly enjoyed
the day. A different type of pro
gram was given them In the morn
ing, there being no speeches and
formal talks, but music by high
school musicians, recitations and
other entertainment by the high
school group and the U. D. C. At
noon the vets, wives and widows
were given a home-cooked meal at
the Woman's club rooms and in
the afternoon they chatted in the
shade of the court square trees,
talked of old times, and visited the
movie houses, hearing the ‘•talkies"
for the first time, as guests of the
atre owners and the business men
of the city.
Capt. Ed Dixon, of Fallston, was
again the oldest veteran in at
tendance and will, due to hts 96
years, receive The Cleveland Star
for one year free.
Snake Which Bit A
Man Is Dead, Almost
A Good News Story
This came very near being a
good news story. In fact, it came
near being almost as good as the
news story about the South Carolina
dog which bit a man and then died.
In this case—and it happened in
Shelby—a water moccasin bit a
man and died, but a check-up on
the unusual atory revealed that the
snake did not die of infection but
a violent death, death at the hands
of friends of the man who wanted
to have a joke on him.
The incident happened last W'eek
at the Shelby mill when Claude
McKnight felt the fangs of a moc
casin while swimming in the mill's
swimming pool. Later some of his
friends came to him and told him
that the snake died. And it did die,
but wherein it failed to be a good
story is that it was killed.
Grigg Planning For
County School Budget
Consulting Committeemen In Prep

intendent of education, is this week
and was last week in conference
with school committeemen and of
ficials of the various districts of
the county in preparing to work out
the county school budget which
must be completed this month.
His preliminary work so far gives
no idea as to the budget total as
the interviews and conferences with
committeemen have been for the
purpose of going over with them
repairs and construction work that
will be needed by another year on
the many school structures in the
county.

Kiser Brothers
Farm In Clover
One Of The Kisers, Anderson. Mar
ried Miss Novella Cline Of
Cleveland,
Kiser Brothers, one of whom, An
derson by name, recently married
Miss Novella Cline, youngest daugh
ter of the late John F. Cline of
Cleveland county, arc truly ‘•living
in clover” in Gaston county. These
four brothers farm the farm of their
father, Joe Kiser, four miles east of
Crouse. Mr. Kiser, the elder, lives
at his father's old home place, mak
ing three generations to remain at
the same place. He is the father ot
eight boys and one daughter, Miss
Ella Kiser. Four of the boys live
with him and operate the farm,
while the other sons live in the
community and operate farms of
their own.
The Kiser Brothers wno live ai
the old homestead operate an 800
acre farm. A Shelby citizen visit
ing Mrs. Kiser who was formerly
Miss Novella Cline, says these boys
have 100 acres of clover that will
cut two tons to the acre. They do
not run a dairy farm but sell the
clover to dairymen in that section
for $25 to $30 per ton. They have
100 acres of the fine wheat that will
make easily 30 bushels to the acre.
They have 150 acres in cotton that
is up and plowed for the first time,
some of the cotton stalks growing
their fourth leaf. Then there are 50
acres of pretty com nearly knee
high. They have one of the best
equipped farms in this whole sec
tion. Modern farming implements
such as riding cultivators are used.
The eight boys pool their purchases
and buy everything from fertilizer
to automobiles at the quantity cash
price.
They are truly “living in clover,”
but they make their own clover by
their thrift and industry.

“Next Governor” Is Already
Political Topic In Tarheelia
Brummitt, Fountain And Co* Seem
Now To Be The Feuding
Contenders.
Raleigh—Attention is being fo
cu.'.cd already upern the possibilities
and prospects in the contest ior
governor m 1932, and especially
upon the prospective contestants for
the Democratic nomination in the
primary, as a result of the full page
advertisement that ran in the Ra
leigh News and Observer proposing
P. W. McMullen of Elizabeth City,
as a Democratic candidate for gov
ernor in 1932.
With the injection of McMullen
into the contest for the governor
ship in 1932, there are now five men
already more or less actively in the
contest, with one or two others
hovering about who cannot as yet
make up their minds. These five are
as follows:
Denrus G. Brummitt, present at
torney general, Oxford.
Richard T. Fountain. present
lieutenant governor. Rocky Mount.
General Albert. L. Cox, Raleigh.
J. C. B. Ehringhaus, Elizabeth
City.
P. w. McMullen. Elizabeth City.
Many Things Can Happen.
It is admitted by everyone, of
course, that anything; can happen
in three-and-a-half years, and that
the expectations of all of these pos
sible candidates depend very great
ly upon the outcome of the 1930
.senatorial enmpa gn and the de
liberation of the general assembly
in 1931.
But for the time being, indications
are that the two candidates out of
these five that have the best out
look now are Fountain and Brum
mitt, with Cox in third place, ac
cording to seasoned political ob
servers who have recently been out
over the state talking to the voters.
One reason for this is that. Foun
tain has been and is now more ac
tive than the rest of the possibili
ties.
“Fountain has already done more
work than all the rest of the pos
sible candidates put together," said
an experienced observer here, who,
of course, declined to permit his
name to be used. "It is more or les.-,
common knowledge that he has tin
majority of the members of the last !
three legislatures working for him."

Now comes forward W. J. Cash,
of Boiling Springs, well known In
Shelby, to add to the literary pres
tige of Cleveland county, on the
big time literary circuit, Mr. Cash
wrote an article on Senator Sim
mons—one of his satirical, ironic
productions, making out the old
man to be a Republican. Cash sent
it to the Mercury, and Saturday re
ceived a letter from H. L. Mencken,
the editor, not only accepting and
commending the article, but asking
for more. The article will probably
produce a furore in North Carolina
politics when it is published, which
probably will be in July.

Many Vote
In Run Off
Election
Eight Hundred May Vote For On«
Alderman By Sundown Thla
Evening.
Almost as many Shelby peopli
will have voted today to decide oni
aldrrmanic seat as voted In th<
regular city election only a fev
years back.
At 2 o'clock this afternoon taor«
than 450 people had voted In th«
runoff election for alderman in
ward one between J. F. Ledford, In
cumbent, and P. M. Washburn,
high candidate in the regular elec
tion a week ago today. Just how
many more will vote between this
hour and sundown is problematical
but estimates about the polling
booth at the court house where
Registrar Mike Austell and Charlie
Woodson, judge, are presiding, have
it that between 750 and 800 votes
will likely be cast.
The trend of the voting of course
is only guess work upon the part
of observers about the booth, but
many there seem to think the win
ner will go in office as the fourth
member of the new city board by a
decisive majority.
Doth candidates, Ledford and
Washburn were about the polls oc
casionally today but no noticeable
amount of campaigning was done.
Candidates Active.
Just how the voting may swing
today and Just how many votes may
be cast In the election for an aider
man from Ward One is the left
over ‘ x” of last Monday’s first elec
tion, but along towards the fag end
of last week the two candidates. J.
P. Ledford, and P. M. Washburn
got active and a fairly good vote
may be cast.
On Friday various voters of the
town began to receive letters from
Mr. Ledford, the present alderman,
reminding them of the run-off race
today and explaining that he was
still in the race because the law
required a majority vote. His en
trance into the first race to seek
rcclection, he explained, was
brought about by the urging of
friends who wanted him back upon
the board because of the knowledge
he had of city affairs due to his
experience in office two years.
Economy Plea Made.
Then on postal cards came along
through the city malls from the
other candidate, Mr. Washburn,
also reminding citizens of the run
off race today. On his card Mr
Washburn announced himself on
the economy platform and for re
duced light rates. His lines In re
gard to economy read: “I am In
favor of strict economy in city gov
ernment and promise if elected to
do what I can for a general scale
downward in light rates. The citi
zens asked the present officials for
this two months ago but their rt
quest has been ignored so far.”
