Defeat Farm Bill.
Washington, June 11.—President
Hoover suffered a second reverse
today at the hands of the senate,
which refused to accept the farm
bill agreement without the deben
ture plan. Debenture advocates—
Democrats and Western Republi
cans—succeeded in rejecting the
conference report, 46 to 4.1. The
senate's action was followed two
hours later by a statement from
President Hoover again denouncing
the debenture plan, which he said
would bring "disaster” to the farm
er, and appealing for approval of
the conference report so that the
farmer may have relief. The presi
dent did not specify any course of
action, but his appeal was inter
preted as one for the house to vote
directly on the issue when the bill
is received there tomorrow.
Shelby People
Hart, Still In
Hospital Today
Claude Webb, Theatre Owner, And
Mrs. Reid Misenheimer In
jured Near Wilmington..
Mr. Claude Webb. owner and
manager cf Webb theatre here, and
Mrs. Verda Misenheimer wife ot
Mr. Reid Misenhnmer, Shelby serv
ice station proprietor, were still in
a Wilmington hyspita! today due to
injuries received in an auto wreck
15 miles west of Wilmington about
5 o’clock Monday morning.
Mr and Mrs. Misenneimer, Mr.
Webb, Mr.-and Mas Russell Laugh
ridge end daughter. Miss Sac:e,
were having Wilmb nor. where
they spent the week-end. early
Monday morning returning here
when the car In which they were
riding and which was driven by Mr.
Misenheimer turned over. One if
the wheels it is understood got off
the pavement and caused the car
to turn turtle before it could be
straightened.
Mr. Webb had several ribs and
his jaw-bone fractured while Mrs
Misenheimer suffered a torn or
wrenched ligament in her hip and
back. The others in the car were
only bruised and shaken up. Anoth
er Shelby car, just behind the I
wrecked car, picked the injured up
and rushed them back to a Wil
mington hospital.
The Laughridges have already re
turned to Shelby and Mr. Misen
heimer, Mrs. Alice Boland and
ethers who were on the trip are ex
pected. The theatre owner may be
able to leave the hospital anti
come home today despite his frac
tured bones, but it is likely, it was
said today, that Mrs. Misenheimer
will be in the hospital for several
days yet.

over b\ the new city fat tiers last
night shows that the assets of the
city of Shelby, are $57,217,04 nearer

Will Need Voting
Booths In County |
Due To Law Change;
Secret Ballot l.aw Will Require Ap
proximately 100 Vooting Booths
For Cleveland.
The commissioners of Cleve
land county must of necessity
add something like $500 or more
to their budget for operating
expenses of the county this year
due to the new Australian bal
lot law fo£. the entire state
which goes into effect at the
next and all following elections
for the county.
Information from the state board
of elections as sent to the county
election board here states that the
law will require one of the secret
voting booths for each 100 voters oi
thereabouts in the county. This will
mean something like 100 voting
booth for this county, and the es
timate by the state board is that
the booths can be constructed for
about $12.50 each. However, the be
lief prevails here that the booths
as required by law can be construct
ed considerably cheaper, perhaps for
$5 each. Specifications and details
of the booth have not been receiv
ed. the first message merely re
minding election officials that they
should begin to prepare for the
changes which must be made in the
next ballot battle because of the
election law passed by the last leg
islature.

Marries 42-Year-Old Bride
At Gaffney.
Gaffney. S. C—Optimism on the
last fringe of life shone out Satur
day morning when J. A. Sims, 83
year-old Kings Mountain man, came
with Miss Bernice Porter, who gave
her age as 42 and her home as
Kings Mountain, to the office of
Probate Judge Lake W Stroup to
be married.
“Yes, I'm just a little bit old,”
Sims told Judge Stroup, "but I've
waited a good many years to find
a woman that suited me. Not many
are thrifty, but I know Miss Porter
is. for she has kept house for me
six months."
The old man and his bride both
told the judge they owned their own
homes and that they were com
fortably fixed financially.
“In a few months we will come
back and make our wills,” Mrs.
Sims smilingly told the judge as
they left
Famous Actress in Double Tragedy
After being a star in many Broadway attractions, Margaret
Laurence, co-starred with Louis Bennison in a tragedy which
is shaking Broadway to its foundations. Their dead bodies
were found in the actress’ pent house apartment on Bark ave
nue, New York, bathed in their own blood. The police theory
is that Bennison, former rival of Tom Mix for star wild west
roles, shot the star and then took his own life. The tragedy
reveals for the first time a secret love affair between the actor
and Margaret Lawrence, widow of Wallace Eddinger.

No Idea Of Giving l5p, Chairman
Says. Overman Having; No
Chills Of Fear.
Southern political leaders who re
fused to support the Democratic
candidate in the last campaign will
not be granted the pleasure of hav
ing John J. Raskob. muchly dis
cussed Democratic chairman dur
ing and since the 1928 campaign,
resign from his post. Mr. Raskob
made this plain at the Democratic
rally for the .Shouse dinner In
Washington Monday night.
At the same meeting numerous
Democratic leaders declared a hew
their loyalty to and their love lor
the Democratic party, among the
number being Senator Lee S. Over
man, of North Carolina, who said
*'the Democratic party was not born
to die.”
Raskob Talks.
A Washington dispatch telling ot
the Democratic dinner, which at
tracted the interest of the nation,
follows:
John J. Raskob. chairman of the
democratic national committee, told
the party leaders gathered here at
a banquet honoring Jouett Shouse,
the new chairman of the executive
committee, that he had no intent
inn of resigning.
“I hope my remarks tonight will
set at rest all doubt about my con
tinuing," he said, diverging from
his prepared address, as the men
and women attending the dinner
arose applauding and cheering.
He added that when he took the
chairmanship he did so because he
believed in the principles of the
democratic party.
The chairman announced that
Mrs. Nellie Tayloe Ross of Wyom
ing would be a member of the exe
cutive comittee with Mr. Shouse and
in charge of woman’s activities. He
also stated that Charles Great
house of Indiana would continue as
secretary of the committee and
James W. Gerard as treasurer.
Overman Heard.
After Representative Garner of
Texas, democratic leader in the
house had spoken. Senator Overman
of North Carolina, was escorted to
the speaker’s table by Lewis Nixon
of New York, Senator Walsh of
Montana and Breckenridge Long
of Missouri.
‘T am a democrat and an unter
rified one." the North Carolinian
declared. "No cold chills run down
my spine at the mention of the
leader of the democratic party in t,h3
last campaign. The democratic par
ty was not born to die, but will live
as long as men love justice."
“Defeat does not discourage me,’’
he continued. “I am for harmony.
I am for unity, but unity with cour
age.”
Democrats of national prominence
met here tonight at a dinner which
marked the first big gathering of
party leaders since the disastrous
1928 campaign and alternately heard
Chairman John J. Raskob denounce
republican policies and Jouett
Shouse, his lieutenant, outline plans
for strengthening the ranks for the
next campaign.
The dinner was given by the Jef
ferson association of the District of
Columbia in honor of Mr. Shouse
who has been made chairman of the
executive committee of the national
committee. It had aroused unusual
interest because of the attitude of
some of the southern leaders in re
fraining from attending.
The national chairman spoke es
pecially of centralization of author
ity in Washington, asserting that

Junior Carolinas Golf Tournament
There Friday and Saturday.
Webb Holds Title.
Greensboro. June 12.—Witli the
smoke of battle scarcely cleared,
away from the Valley Brook ter
rain at Sedgefield, after the contin
ual warfare represented by the
women’s Carolina championship
and the men's Carolina champion

fending champion was eliminated in
the second round matches by Ills
brother Fred Laxton. of Charlotte,
medalist for the meet, who in turn
lost in the finals before the doughty
attack of Pete Webb, of Shelby. In
terest was added to Webb's success
ful assault upon the title last year.
In that he entered the competition
unheralded and unsung, just a
smiling, freckled youth from se
questered fairways, who previous to
last year had never owned a full
set of clubs in his life.
It was learned here today that
Pete Webb, junior Carolines golf
champion, will leave Shelby early

Night Fire
Guts Store
In Shelby
Ingram-Files Store Damaged Bv
Blare Of I'nknown Origin On
Second Floor.
| Fire of unknown origin, which
started on the second floor of the
Ingram-Liles company, North Ln
Fayette street, Monday night short
ly after midnight, completely gutted
the upper floor ^ of the establish
ment. at the same time the lower
floors were deluged with water.
Through efficient work of the fire
department confined the flames to
to the upper story. Hut the stock on
the lower floors suffered greatly
from water damage.
John A Liles, one of the partners
of the firm. told The Star today,
ttiat the company carried a fifty
thousand dollar stock, which to us1
tits own words “is fairly well cov
ered by insurance.'’
At this writing, which is prior to
the insurance adjustment, which 1
slated to begin tomorrow, it is im
possible to tell even approximately
what the loss will be. But it is be
lieved it will be heavy.
The fire originated in a heavily
stocked merchandise room cat the
second floor, at. the northwest cor
ner of the building. It was discover
ed by Mr. Vernon Grigg, of the
Palmer funeral home, who notified
the fire department and also phon
ed both to Mr. Liles and Mr. In
gram. the latter being also a mem
ber of the firm.
Mr. Liles said when he reached
the building it apparently was gut
ted with the flames making so
lurid a light In the night sky that
he thought the entire building
would be destroyed before the fire
could be brought under control.
The Ingram-Liles company have
been doing business in Shelby since
February second of last year. They
moved to this city from Morven,
this state, where they had been con
ducting a merchandise establish
ment of a like nature for many
years.
Since coming to Shelby both
members of the company have be
come very popular, not only with
their fellow merchants, but with
the Shelby people generally.
The building, belonging to Mrs.
Esther McBrayer. was damaged, it
is estimated, several thousand dol
lars.

Political Plums
TalkedAsJonas
Comes To Shelby
Loral Republican Leader* May Con
fer With Congressman About
Several Positions.
Congressman Chas. A. Jonas, of
Lincolnton, who comes here Fri
day for his first visit since taking
his seat in Congress after the up
set last fall when he defeated the
Democratic candidate. Major Bul
winkle, will likely receive consider
able attention from local Repub
lican leaders.
Sooner or later during Congress
man Jonas' terms there will be some
political plums in the nature of
jobs and appointments to pass out
and it has been many, many years
since the Republicans of this dis
trict have had a member of their
party in Washington to whom they
might look to for public appoint
ments and jobs. For that reason the
Lincolnton solon is not likely to be
lonesome Friday and FYiday night
when he visits Shelby to make the
address at the banquet of the state
convention of postmaster at Cleve
land Springs.
Republican leaders in Shelby and
over the county are not looking for
any outstanding recognition for
themselves insofar as is known but
they worked hard and exhorted their
forces consistently in the last cam
paign and "some of the boys down
the line" may be asking for Jobs,
which must come via Jonas, some
of these days.
There are a couple of berths like
ly to be filled oh the prohibition
forces of the section and vacancies
occur occasionally in other federal
departments throughout, this area.
Some of these things may be men
tioned to Mr. Jonas during his stay.
Although Cleveland county did not
switch over to the Republican col
umn in the last election as did
some of the other counties in the
Jonas district, local leaders helped
the new congressman swell his vote
here and used their influence with
effect in other* portions of the dis
trict. Moreover it is recalled that
the local G. O. P. stalwarts Have
another pretty good way of getting
close to their congressman. A year
ego when the Republican forces of
the district met at Cleveland
Springs in their district convention
and nominated Mr. Jonas for Con
gress there was a considerable Ji
_vjsisw tn optnkui aX the meeting.
Hereabouts, which is to SST' »»
Cleveland and Lincoln counties, the
Republicans wanted Charlie Jona3
for the race and wanted him bad.
On the other hand Republicans
from other portions of the di**rict
had their candidates and they were
pretty well grouped behind one
man. Rather not so well grouped
behind another candidate but a bit
antagonistic to Mr. Jonas, who was
at that time Republican national
committeeman of the state and in
which capacity some of his party
members had not agreed it seems
with all of his ideas, the disagree
ment for the most part being about
that fellow Hoover, who has caused
quite a bit of trouble in another
political party. Jonas and his sup
porters were known as Hoover men
(that was prior to the big conven
tion) while other Republicans in

Such was the atmosphere when the
district convention came to town
bringing along Mike Whttener, Cliff

of a battle that might develop. At
that time prospects were not co

ups by Mike Whitener and the

Which Is to say that Cleveland
Republicans are not overly deserv
ing of any recognition for electing
Mr. Jonas. They didn't help along
so much on that end, but they did
have much to do with getting him
nominated so that he might be
elected. So, that’s why the local
