Aderholt Shot
By Cops, Argue
Beal Attorneys
Own Men Carried Shotrnns. Hocy
Makes Opening Speech For
State Counsel.
Charlotte, Oct. 17.—Declaration
that the evidence shdwed O. V.
Aderholt, Gastonia chief of police,
was shot by one of his own offi
cers was made today by T. A.
Adams, defense attorney, in argu
ments before the Jury in the trial
of seven textile union members
charged with second degree mur
der in connection with the death of
the police chief.
Molding up the dead chief’s gar
ments Adams roared:
“Look at the clothes he wore. He
was peppered with shot in the back
from his head to his feet. The only
way in which he could have been
shot in that manner is by a sawed
off shotgun and the only man on
the ground that night that had one
was one of his own officers.”
In testimony during the trial
Adam Hord, Gastonia plain clothes
officer and one of four officers who
accompanied their chief to the tent
colony grounds of the Loray mill
strikers the night Aderholt was fat
ally wounded, had said he carried
a sawed-off shotgun.
Hord Had Sawed-Off Gun.
Hord had further testified he
went behind the union headquar
ters building in search of a man he
saw with a gun and was there
when Aderholt was shot.
The police chief received a mor
tal wound the night of June 7 from
a shot fired in the darkness after
he and officers with him had been
denied admittance to the union
grounds by armed strikers. They
had gone to the tent colony to in
vestigate reports of disorders there.
Newell Also Cites Clothing.
Aderholt's blood-stained, bullet
ridden clothing also received the at
tention of the prosecuttng attorney
in his arguments. Requesting the
Jury to cast their eyes upon it, Jake
Newell, prosecution attorney, said it
was "proof of a conspiracy to mur
der the police chief. “Shot in the
back. Shot by cowards. Shot by
murderers. ^
“Any answer to that? There can t
be. Any shooting in front? No. The
only shots he got were from the
back and that’s the proof of con
spiracy. A conspiracy dark as night,
black as hell.”
Four speeches were made to the
jury during the day, the first by
Clyde Hoey for the state: the sec
ond by J. D. McCall, • of the de
fense; the third by Newell and the
fourth by Adams.
Judge Barnhill today announced
he might adjourn court tomorrow
afternoon until Monday in order to
have ample time to study the evi
dence and prepare his charge.

Interesting Facts About County
Schools Given fey School Head.
Debt Is Low.
In outlining the method of rating
schools In the United States, Coun
ty Superintendent Horace Grigg
last night gave Interesting and
startling facts pertaining to Cleve
land county which ranks 81 in
schools among the 100 counties In

after the club had been driven
from Cleveland Springs hotel by the
recent fire.
“There are ten points which de
termine a county’s school efficien
cy,” said Mr. Grigg and since
Cleveland, which is first in so many
points, yet is ninth from the bottom
in the matter of schools, the ex
planation as to the method of rat
ing was very interesting.
Ten Efficiency Points.
In the first place the percentage
of average daily attendance is cut
down because there is a large per
centage of tenants who are con
stantly moving during the senool
period in Cleveland county. Prom
1910 to 1926 the number of tenants
in Cleveland Increased 27 per cent
as compared with 1.7 per cent l-i

term in 1927 in Cleveland was 128
days, in 1929 was 143 days against
thastate average of 142.
In the matter of training of
teachers the county’s rank was 75
In 1927 and 1928. The percentage
of enrollment in high school 1927
28 ranked Cleveland 71 as compar
ed with other counties in the state.
Not Advancing Fast.
In 1927-28 51.8 per cent of the
children were over-age. that is
were not advancing in their grades
as fast as they should.
In the pay of teachers the coun
ty ranks 84th among thfe counties
or the state, the average pay being
$712.40. The instructional cost jvr
pupil In the county was $19.40. This
compared with $27.12 in Ruther
ford, $24.86 in Catawba and *29 in
Gaston for the year 1927-28.
In the matter of current expen
ditures per pupil the county ranked
89th. while the current expendi
tures per teacher was not given by
Mr. Grigg. The value of school
property ranked 90th. while the
county ranked 39th In property
valuation per school child.
School Debt Low.
Cleveland county's school in
debtedness per capita was $40 as
compared with $99.50 in Ruther

No Plans Yet For
Rebuilding Hotel;
Blow For Lessees
Martin And Beauregard Just Start
ing Wide Advertising For
Hotel When Fire Came.
What is to become of Cleveland
Springs? This question Is being ask
ed by scores of people In and about
Shelby, and so far there has been
no definite answer from the men
who control the property where the
well-known hotel was destroyed by
fire Tuesday night.
Mr. O. M. Mull, secretary-treas
urer of the hotel company. Is In
Raleigh for the week-end, and any
discussion of future plans will like
ly carry over until he returns.
Meantime stockholders are adverse
to discussing possibilities of re
building.
Despite numerous bad breaks and
handicaps it is generally known
that the Cleveland Springs hotel,
was a great asset to Shelby, one of
the town's best advertisements, a
gathering place ior civic meetings
and such, and many Shelby people
hope that by some method the
hotel can be rebuilt.
Good Era Ahead.
From all indications the hotel was
just facing what promised to be one
of Its most successful periods. The
lessees, Martin and Beauregard, of
recent weeks had Just entered upon
a wide advertising schedule for the
hotel in addition to making ar
rangements whereby the hotel
property would be used in helping
to defray operating expenses.
The lessees were at the time of
the fire erecting highway signs

C. R. Dabnefc, who, according to

man who brought about the espose
of the religious cult now being pur
