Seven Hundred Vets
May Attend Reunion
In Shelby July 8*9
Spanish •American War Vets Will
Mere Than Fill Hotels Of
Shelby.
Shelby’s hotel and housing capac
ity will be well tested here next
month when the North Carolina
Postmasters hold their convention
here, but the biggest housing and
hospitality test, prior to the State
Baptist convention which meets
here in the fall, will likely come on
July 8 and 9 when the Spanish-Am
erican War veterans of North Car
olina hold their annual encamp
ment here.
Capts. J. F. Jenkins, Hugh A.
Logan and J. F. Roberts, all Span
ish-American war veterans, who are
making arrangements for the big
e encampment, would not be surpris
. ed if Shelby has 800 visitors for the
two days. However, the majority of
the estimates are that the attend
ance, including wives and other
members of the families of veterans
will run between 300 and 700 people.
At the last encampment at Dur
ham 200 were in attendance but the
various camp organizations over the
slate have already assured the local
camp that double that number will
be in Shelby. Capt. Logan is com
mr nder of the local camp, which is
known as the June T. Gardner
Camp, being elected some time back
to succeed Capt. Jenkins, the first
commander. At present there are
only 25 members of the camp and
other veterans of the war in this
county and adjoining counties are
urged to joint the organization prior
to the state encampment in July.

Sheriff After
Poll Taxes In
County Not Paid
Count; Board Orders Him To Col
lect Thousands Of Dollars
Now Unpaid.
There we hundreds of people
In Cleveland county who have
not paid their poll tax in several
years along with thousands of
dollars of personal property tax
also unpaid the Cleveland coun
ty commissioners noted in their
last meeting before issuing an
order to Sheriff Irvin M. Allen
to use every legal method to
collect both unpaid poll and
personal taxes along with un
paid land tax.
In carrying out the order
Sheriff Allen is today beginning
his list of those who have not
paid their poll tax or their
property tax and at an early
date he will start a movement
to carry out the order of the
commissioners by garnisheeing
wages for the unpaid poll tax
and by seizing personal prop
erty on which tax Is not paid.
Other unpaid taxes, property
tax, are being advertised now for
sale on the first Monday of next
month.
Hundreds of people who have
no other than poll tax
in Cleveland county have
not been paying this tax, the
records show, but the new order
of the commissioners was made
with the intention of stopping
this leak on county funds and
the drastic order issued to the
sheriff to see that such tax be
paid along with property tax.
Some personal property was
taken in last week and more
will be seized for sale because
of unpaid taxes when the list
now being prepared is complet
ed.
Sheriff Allen estimates that
at least $5,000 is owing to the
county for poll tax alone.

“It is with personal pride in my
home town that I write to say that
Shelby has gained a desirable citi
zen and an efficient school man in
the election of Capt. B. L. Smith
to the superintendency of its pub
lic schools. I have known Mr. Smith
and his work in the schools of For

five years. I have also known him
these years as a Christian gentle
man. It gives me real pleasure to
say any community would be bet
tered by having such a man among
its citizens. I sincerely congratulate
Shelby, the school board and all
concerned on being able to secure
Capt. Smith for the position of
superintendent. The teachers and pu
plls will find him easy to approach,
kind, sympathetic, firm, helpful—a
real friend and promoter of all that
is best. His going from us is a dis
tinct loss to this entire community
—Spindale, Rutherfordton, Forest
City, Rutherford county—but since
this is so, I am glad my home town
has secured him.”

“Jones Place” Sidewalk Last
Building Of Dorsey Regime
Nelson Boys Back
For First Visit
Here In 20 Years
Lloyd And Theodore Nelson, Natives
Of Town, Sec Many Changes
Made.
After an absence of 25 years from
Shelby, Lloyd and Theodore Nelson,
made their first return visit to the
town of their nativity on Friday
and were astonished to see all the
evidences of improvement and
growth on every hand. Both are
married and brought their
wives who were here for the first
time. Lloyd is district passenger
agent for the Atlanta and West
Point and the Western railway of
Alabama-Georgia railroads, while
Theodore has an equally lucrative
position with the Western Union
Telegraph Co. Both live in Atlanta.
They are the sons of Mr. and Mrs.
Perry Nelson who lived in a large
two story house and operated a
store on the site of the present O.
E. Ford Co. store.
The Nelson children were all boys,
five or six in niunber and the en
vironment of the railway station
inclined them to some phase of
railroad work. Practically all of
them picked up telegraphy at the
local station.
The Nelson boys were shown
about Shelby by their old friend,
Thad Ford. When they lived here
there were just a few houses north
of the S. A. L. railroad and the
Belmont cotton mill was the south
ern limit of town. They met and
renewed acquaintance with quite a
few people whom they knew here 25
years ago.
City workman Saturday complet
ed what is likely to be the last con
struction work of the Dorsey ad
ministration in Shelby when they
finished the new sidewalk on the
southeast side of ‘‘Jones Place” the
street which joins East Warren and
East Marion street, running from
the jail on East Warren to the in
tersection with East Marion and
the Cleveland Springs load at the
Sisk residence.
The sidewalk job there w-as han
dled by the same plan as has been
other paving and sidewalk work
under the administration, with the
property owners paying half of the
cost and the city doing its own
construction thus saving any direct
expense to the city,
Harrill Back With

first day back he played centerfleld
for Greensboro and was one of the
hitting leaders in the 10 to 2 vic
tory over Henderson.

Papa Patching Pants To Put
Finery On Girls, Figures Show
New York.—Papa is cutting down
on his wardrobe and getting to
work to provide more luxuries for
mamma and the girls, enabling
them to keep up with the fast
changing styles in women's clothes,
it would appear from an analysis
by the Merchants association of the
1927 United States cens'is of manu
facturers based on a comparison of
1925 and 1927 figures.
In New York City, where 92 per
cent of all the garments made in
the state is manufactured, the val
ue of the output in factories mak
ing men's and boys’ clothing drop
ped from $379,000,000 in 1925 to
$360,000,000 in 1927, while the value
of the output of women's clothing
factories rose from $1,008,000,000 to
$1,145,000,000. These figure? bear out
information from the c'othing trade
that men are showing a tendency to
economize on their clothing, ac
cording to the Merchants' associa
tion.
The value of the output of shirts
dropped from *70,000,000 to *60,
000,000, but the output of women’s
furs climbed from *206,000,0000 to
$256,000,000, the value of fancy and
miscellaneous articles went up *4,
000,000, and the production of per
furmery, cosmetics and toilet prep
arations in New York city jumped
from $44,000000 to *72.000.000.
The drop of *10,000,000 in the
city's manufacture of musical in
struments is attributed to increasing
use of the radio. The decrease from
*117,000.000 to $89,000,000 of tobacco
products and the drop from 366
plants in 1925 to 304 plants in 1927
making cigarettes, cigars, pipes, to
bacco and snuff is not believed to
be due-to a decrease in consump
tion.
The four leading industries in
New York, according to the analy
sis, are apparel, food and beverage
products, printing and publishing
and the maal industries

Mr. Putnam, who served in the

Shelby Team Plays
Raeford Saturday;
Win Western Title
Special Train For
Championship Game
Planned In Shelby
Fans, Band Members And Players
May Make Round Trip
For 15.
Plans underway here today
Indicate that a special train
may be operated over the South
ern from Shelby to Chapel Hill
and back Saturday for the
Shelby-Raeford baseball came
for the high school cham
pionship of North Carolina.
Whether or not the spe
cial will run will be definitely
known by Wednesday, but It is
likely that there will be a spe
cial.
The running of the special de
ends for the most, part on the
i’umber of people who plan to at
<end. One hundred and twenty-five
fares will be needed. It Is said, to
assure the train. Although a defi
nite price has not been fixed it Is
estimated that the round trip fare
will be something like $5—cheaper
than by auto for a large number of
people. Furthermore it Is argued
that enough automobiles could
hardly be secured to take down the
basebal team and the high school
band even though only a few fans
accompanied the team. Talk about
town indicates that at least 100
fans hope to attend and if that
many will go by the special train
nlong with the team and band the
necessary number for the train will
be secured.
Only one day, it is said would be
required to see the game with the
trip made by train, leaving here
about 6:30 Saturday morning and
returning about midnight.
Shelby won the right to play in
the state finals by defeating Win
ston at Concord Saturday, while
Raeford won the eastern cham
pionship by defeating Clayton at
Fayetteville In a 11-inning game
last Friday.
Those who desire to go by special
train. If secured, should get In
touch with Mr. Wythe Royster.
Eaker Was Bridge
Builder For Many
Years For Railroad
Citizen Of Shelby Who Died Last
Week Built Bridges For
36 Yean.
Older citizens of Shelby, familiar
with the early construction of rail
roads throughout the section, recall
that Mr. A. P. Eaker, Shelby man
who died last week at the age of
74 years, perhaps built more
bridges and railway trestles in this
section of North Carolina than any
other man, and for many years he
was known as "The Bridge Build
er.’’
In 1888 Mr. Eaker moved to
Shelby from Buffalo and began
work with the Southern Railway
bridge construction forces. For 31
years he was with the Southern
road building bridges, and for the
majority of the time he was bridge
construction foreman between Char
leston and Marion. Then for five
years he was bridge foreman with
the Seaboard road. Just how many
bridges and trestles he erected or
helped erect in those 36 years is
not known, but few trains travel
in and out of this section which
do not run over a bridge that the
late Shelby citizen helped con
struct.
Built County Bridges.
Following the disastrous Hood or
1916, in which practically all of the
bridges In Cleveland county were
washed away, Mr. Eaker who then
had retired from the railroad serv
ice was secured by the county com
missioners to rebuild the county
bridges, and today many of the
bridges used were constructed by
him.
In the account of Mr. Baker’s
death published last Friday the
name of one son. Andrew, was in
advertently ommitted.
Highs Will Meet
Belmont Tomorrow
If the weather permits Shelby
people will get to see Casey Morris’
western champions in action again
before they play for the state title
in Raleigh Saturday. A game has
been scheduled by Ralph Gardner,
jteam manager, to be played here
Tuesday afternoon between the
Belmont Abbey prep team and the
i Shelby outfit
Hamrick Hurls Morris’ Boys To
Western Championship Over
Winston In Concord.
In creeping out ahead of Winston
Salem by a 4-1 scora In a nerve
wracking pitchers’ battle at Con
cord Saturday afternoon Oaaey Mor
ris’ Shelby highs established a rec
ord for the books in winning the
western Carolina baseball title for
the third time. Two times In the
past, once five years ago and again
four years ago. the Shelby team
has won the weetem title and then
backed up both wins by copping the
state title twice in Chapel HilL Sat
urday of this week the local lads
travel to Chapel Hill hoping to bag
the state crown for the third time
to go along with their three western
titles.
The western championship game
was one of thrills, unusual plays,
and at periods scintillating perform
ancos for school boys despite the
fact that two showers of rain hamp
ered speedy play on the part of both
teams.
Great Hurling.
Standing out above all other per
formances of the day was the mound
work of the two opposing pitchers,
Sherrill Hamrick, who has turned
in six title victories in a row lor
Shelby; and Capt. Livengood, bril
liant fast-ball pitcher lor the Twin
City outfit By striking out sight
men Hamrick maintained his rec
ord for the year in striking out
seven or more batters per game, but
in the department of strikeouts the
hard-working Shelby hurler was
outclassed by the work of Llven
good who whiffed 13 Shelby batters
The last four innings were played
in a semi-darkness and Liven -
good's last ball could hardly be
seen. However, Hamrick was the
same old cool Hamrick In the
pinches and it was In that man
ner he stilled the title hopes of the
Winston group. The seven hits he
gave up were widely scattered ex
cept lor two In a row In the ninth
inning and when men were on bases
he generally stopped all rallies lay
striking out the next batters. But
it was the hectic last Inning that
Hamrick rose to the heights of high
school lame when his supporting
cast seemed ipady to crack behind
him after Winston had two on with
two straight hits and bad advanced
the two runners to second and third
on & sacrifice fly. He forced the
next hitter to send a high fif to
Rippy. and then with Cook, Win
ston's big centerfielder and heaviest
hitter, at bat, a man on third and
a man on second the Shelby stands
were breathless. It seemed near
impossible to halt the frantic Twin
City rally without a tied score, or
at least one or two runs, but Ham
rick’s wide hook began working and
for the third time he struck out
the big center gardener. Such was
the dramatic climax that the stands
and the majority of the players
were dazed for several minutes be
ing unable to comprehend that the
game was over and that the husky
righthander had won for his team
a title.
The hitting of Bridges, Haarrel
son, Poston and Lee featured for
Shelby, while Clodfelter secured
three of Winston’s seven hits. Great
running catches in center and left
field by Rippy and Bumgardner
rivalled a remarkable jumping
catch by Lee on short lor fielding
honors.
How It Happened.
Bridges, lirst hitter up for Shelby
in the opening frame, cracked out
a double, but Bumgardner strucjc
out and Gold and Lee went out on
long flys. Cook Winston’s first bat
ter, duplicated the Bridges’ stunt,
and smacked out a two-bagger but
Hamrick struck out the next, and
the two following flew out to Rippy
with neither team scoring in the
first. In the second Inning Liven
good struck out two Shelby hitters
and the third rolled out. iB Win
ston’s half of the second Clodfelter
secured a hit, but Hamrick struck
out Carter and Lee tossed out the
others at first. The first score
came in the third when “Rooster’*
Bridges slammed out his second hit
in two times up and scored on

double between third and short.
Winston secured another hit to
