"It is generally admitted that the j

over North Carolina this season j
than ever before," says C. H. Bran- j

plenty of food Just before he ?oes

reason every cotton grower should
destroy the cotton stalks as quickly

stalks killed, the fewer weevils there
will be to survive the winter. But on -

sowing of green cover crops between

to spend the winter in green and

Wilson Named Captain
Of Highs For Contest
Today; Wall May Play
Star Veteran Of Line Succeeds Gold |
As Captain. Injured Quarter
May Help Eleven*.
Hubert (Newberry) Wilson, vet- ;
eran line player, is the new captain j
of the Shelby high football eleven
ami Is next In line behind Milky j
Gold in the group of grid stars j
who have been named by their i
teammates to lead them in bat
Wilson was elected captain by the j
golden-jerscved lads this week prep
aratory to the crucial clash of the:
year with Charlotte in Charlotte j
this afternoon. For two years the]
hefty, hard-hitting Wilson has beenj
a star guard on Shelby high elevens, j
and this year with no center to be j
found Coach Morris transformed the j
big guard into a ball-snapper and in j
every game of the season so far he i
has been a star.
May Mean isomeintng.
The naming of a captain before
the Charlotte game may have a psy
chological effect on the Morrlsmen.
In years gone by it has been in
Charlotte games that Shelby play
ers have risen to the heroic heights
of stardom: and it may be that
Captain Wilson, leading the weakest
eleven Shelby has known in years
into action in the big game, will put
up such a great underdog scrap
that he will emerge a star as did
Gold, the captain he succeeded, who
became ni> all-state player by his
great end performance against the
mightiest of all Charlotte elevens
three years ago.
Another factor which gives Shelby
fans some hope of getting at least
a close contest today is the an
nouncement that Zeno Wall, veteran
quarter, who hasn't been in a game
tills year, may be used at intervals
against Charlotte. Young Wall has
a trick knee and Coach Morris has
been adverse to using him tills sea
son because he realizes that ahead
of him in college the wiry youngster
should*have a gTeat football career;
but the doctors now say that he can
play and all this week the young
ster has been roughing it in scrim
mage to show his coach that he ,'s fli
for the fray. Despite the doctors
and despite, the boy'* eagerness to
help his team battle Charlotte, the
Shelby coach declares that he will
not send him In as a regular, but
that he may use him to run the ele
ven if Shelby ever gets In striking
distanoe of the goal.
"I know," says the Shelby ccach.
"that he can gain ground with the
best of them even when he jumps
along on one leg. and I know, too.
that he w juld fight his heart out
for Shelby high, but all of that isn't
worth getting him bunged up. If we
get anywhere near the Charlotte
gcal I’ll likely use him then to call
the proper plays, and I'm telling you
If things do break that way Char
lotte will have a hard time keeping
us from crossing the line "
As it is the Shelby eleven will
likely stake its scoring chances to
day on a passing attack with Rippy
flinging the pigskin to Farris' and
McSwain. But Just how the inex
perienced Shelby eleven hopes to
stop the speedy running of Char
lotte's famous little Funderburk and
Capt. Laney Is another matter. On
that factor the size of the score

It takes faith, strong and a plen

patient when hope of life is all but
gone; it takes the same faith for
the patient and for the loved ones
gathered around. Just so, do those

their expenses to Washington in an
unselfish effort to aid a bid situa

credit and commendation, lot us
hope that the farmer himself will
take the matter equally to heart and
lend his own cooperation to any

bettered. The “patient” In this case
must first give his own consent to

much can ever be done foe him.

Stack, of Monroe, presiding jurist
at the October term of Cabarrus
superior court, admonished rr em
bers of the grand jury to do every
thing in their power to aid in the
cultivation of a local consciousness
against lawlessness in his charge.
The presiding officer pointed out
that indifference on the part of the
public has been a boon to the
criminal and that our entire Vgal
structure may be rendered lnvalied
unless a sentiment against wrong
doers is created by our populace.
“Our Judges are made helpless
when the juries fall to convict. The
criminals have neither the fear nor
the respect for our courts that they
should have and they are growing
to be a dangerous factor in our
business and industrial life,,” said
Judge Stdfk impressed upon his
hearers the necessity for men and
women to think of our laws as ap
plying to themselves rather than
solely to the other fellow. He point
