Around Our TOWN
PUT IT DOWN in your record books that the years 1928-29 nave
been and arc big years hi tire history of Shelby achievements
With the chamber of commerce on the blink and no paid pub
licity agent to herald the town's remarkable accomplishments, the coi
yum takes it upon itself to do the brodcasting. Perhaps if there is a
balance in the city treasury at the end of the year Htzzoncr, Mayer |
McMurry, will reward us, but more than likely he will not, so we do it
for our own gratification. Those of you who care to listen may stand ny
others may sign off at their own pleasure.
The majority of the things whicn
a chamber of commerce booklet
would list in the booster pamphlet
have actually been realized in 10*9
although some of the achievements
got underway in 1928.
First of all, there is the 1928 cot
ton crop, the actual figures of which
were not known until this spring.
Those figures, y'know, carried the
information that Cleveland county
produced more cotton than any
other county in the state.
In 1928, too, Oliver Maxmillian
Gardner, up to that time generally
known in the public prints as ‘‘the
Shelby lawyer-farmer," was elec.ed
governor of North Carolina, but he
did not take office as chief execu
tive of the state until 1929.
A pretty good start so far, eh.’
Another Shelby citizen, Odus M.
Mull, in 1928 became head of the
Democratic party in the state and
today retains the chairmanship with
no one calling for his scalp as some
are for the forelock of Mr. Raskob.
Last week our boss, Lee B. Weath
ers, gave up the reins as president
of the North Carolina Press associa
tion. having served in that capacity
during the recent year.
Then along early in the spring
this year Prof. W. T. Sinclair took
a group of young Shelby high
school musicians down to Greens
boro and won the state band cham
pionship for class B schools.
Just a few weeks later Casey
Morris’ Shelby high baseball team
travelled down to Chapel Hill 3nd
won the state high school baseball
championship for all groups with
all comers welcome.
Then last week a lreckie-faced
young Shelby boy, who held the
Junior Carolinas golf championship,
borrowed an kutomoble and carried
his kid brother with him down to
the Sedgefleld golf course at
Greensboro for the annual Junior
Carolinas tourney. When they re
turned back with him—this time
not in the possession of Pete Webb,
but in the keeping of the younger
brother Fred.
This week Vera Arwood, 14-yeai
old local girl, by virtue of her es
say on cooperative farming and
marketing here, was one of the lour
contestants in the entire state to
compete for national essay honors
at Raleigh.
In the two-year period Shelby
people and institutions have car
ried off numerous other honors of
lesser importance than state titles
and offices, but the above list is
pretty good material for the boost
er to tell his hearers Just what
Shelby has contributed to the state
in one year.
this department. some of them
pleasant, and others not so pleas
ant. For instance, the other day
after Mrs. Hoover entertained the
negro congressman's wife at the
White House it was reported that
Senator Cole Blease had introduced
a resolution concerning the event
on the senate floor. We looked in
vain In the newspapers for the re
solution which was entitled "Nigger
In the White House" but we failed
to find it. And it seems as if oth 3f3
also looked as quite a number have
asked that we try to dig it up in
some manner.
Well, after a search, here it is,
and for the benefit of the critical
we'll add that it was published by
the New York Herald-Tribune, a
Republican paper and staunch sup
porter of Mr. Hoover and not by
some pesky Democratic sheet:
"Whereas, it has been reported in
the press and otherwise that cn
Thursday, June 13, 1929, Mrs. Her
bert Hoover, wife of the president of
the United States, entertained at
dinner the negro wife of a negro
congressman named De Priest, who
represents a negro congressional
district in Chicago, and that the
wife of the attorney general and of
the secretary of the navy were seat

woman sat on Mrs. Hoover’s right

honor; now, therefore, be it. resolv

Slowing lip The Workman.
(From The Wall St. Journal'
Normally there is very little de
«L-e in Industry to slow' up the
speedy workman, but tn Hawaii an
Instance occurred where it was
necessary to slow up a workman to
teach other workmen how to work.
In a sugar cane field, one work
man’s output exceeded that of the
others, and the company which
employed him desired to have the
other laborers follow his example.
His movements, however, were too
rapid to follow, and It would have
been difficult to explain verbally to
the other laborers his method.
Therefore, a motion picture of the
fast worker was made, and run olf
in slow' speed to show the others
his method of operation, with very
excellent results.
