Just how many errors and bone head plays the two team:, pulled of during the afternoon evaded the calculation of the scorekeeper. Comic plays, wild throws, nnd un heard of baseball made the affair a comedy for Shelby fans who for the first time in six games relaxed end took it easy with no worry about being eliminated from the race.

Casey Morris will be back at Shelby High next year to direct the high school and city schools ath letics. That announcement made by city school officials here today will be ol considerable interest ui that it comes Just two days beiore the Shelby athletic director leaves for Chapel Hill with his Shelby team to seek the town's third baseball crown. Along with the Morris announce ment Was another one of interest which stated that Prof, W. T. Sin clair would also return to Shelby as musical director and trainer of the school bands and glee, clubs. Prof Sinclair's Shelby High band only recently won the Class n band hon ors in the state-wide contests. Both Winners. Morris and Sinclair both accept ed their reelection to the school faculty this week. The defeat of the special school tax election and the announcement of the new board that all faculty members here would go on the state salary,schedule w ith no supplements made it doubtful if either Morris or Sinclair, both sought by larger schools would re turn. Howc\er Shelby citizens inter ested in athletics and music added to the school board offer in order to retain them and both were re turned. Prof. Sinclair since coming to Shelby has accomplished wonders with the young musicians of the town and lias developed numerous individual performers of note in ad dition to his championship band. Casey Morris in four years of coaching here has won the state baseball crown one time and will play Raeford Saturday for the title again, and his other achievements with the Shelby boys include two western baseball championships, and two football teams which moved twice to the western semi-finals.

Shelby Man Brings 4 Fruit Flies From Florida To Shelby Is stopped, Searched And Sprayed Five Times By Government Men In Florida. Mr. ana Mrs Luico M Hull, just buck from their winter home in Florida brought with them from Orlando four fine specimens of the Mediterranean fruit fly which has caused so much consternation there with the fear that the fly may de stroy the citrus and fruit crops. Mr. Hull has the four flys, some what smaller than a hot.se fly w>!h brown striped wings, in a small vinl of alcohol along with larvae and cocoons from which the flies de velop. Sheiby people whc are be ■i.ng to wonder where their nex* oranges and grapefruit will come from are showing considerable in terest in the pest which has already caused 2,900 government workers to go to Orlando in the attempt t > c’T.dicate the fly. The fly, it is said, stings the orange or other fruit and leaves an egg. the egg cevelops into a “skipper,” or larvae, which plavs havoc wnth the fruit, before turn ing into a cocoon and then to the fruit fly itself. Before leaving Orlando Mr. Hull picked some oranges from one of their groves there, hoping to fret some fruit back to Shelby. The fruit was placed in a small pantry there and in a day or sj he noticed the flies all over the window. Coin ing back the Shelby party was stop ped five times between Orlando and Augusta, Georgia, by government workers who opened their bags and searched the car closely to see that no oranges or other fruit was com ing out of the state. After the search the car was sprayed sinre the state of Georgia is putting for'h every effort to keep the dangerous fly from moving north out of Flor ida. With such a particular search of cars five times each day Mr. Hull is of the opinion that very little contraband booze from Cuba is be ing brought up from Florida theS? days. St. Peters Memorial.
