i Negro Shot To
Death Saturday
Near Lawndale
Arthur Dixon Killed By Ceph
Thomas. Straight Of Shooting
Not Known.
Arthur Dixon, negro tenant farm
er of the Lawndale section, is dead
and Ceph Thomas, colored, and his
son, Alvin Thomas, are in the coun
ty jail as the result of a fatal sheet
ing affair near the old Douglas ne
gro academy at Lawndale Saturday
night.
Dixon died instantly from a bul-i
let which plowed into his neck and
ranged downward, the bullet, ac
cording to information given offic
ers, being fired by the cider Thom
as.
Unexpected' Shooting.
Several negroes were gathered a
bout a negro home there, but the
volley of shots came as a surprise to
all the others, they told Deputy
Sheriff Bob Kendrick and Deputy
Harvey Guin who rushed to the
scene. Dixon, it is said, h?d not
spoken to the father and son before
they began shooting. He was in the
yard of the home and Thomas and
his son were inside, one witness said,
when Alvin Thcmas came out shoot
ing. Both then began shooting all
about the yard, the witness said.
Twelve shots were fired in all, only
one bullet striking Dixon.
One version of the affair would
indicate that the Thomases were
merely doing some wild shooting
and one of the stray shots struck
Dixon, but as one witness related
it to officers the elder Thomas
raised his gun, pointed it at Dixon,
and fired, and it was recalled that
there had been some trouble be
tween the two about one year ago.
Dixon, said to be a quiet, hard
working negro, worked for Clyde
Gold and had formerly been with
Hague Metcalf. Thomas lived on
company land at Lawndale, Deputy
Guin said.

Be Completed On November 29.
Much Interest.
FromJjO to 100 men, representing
everv/section of Cleveland county
met'in the court here In Shelby
Friday night to consider the advis
ability of a county club for Cleve
land county. Mr. J. B. Smith ore
sided over the meeting. R. E. Price,
editor of The News, Rutherfordton,
representing the National County
Clubs association spoke and outlined
the plans, purposes, etc. of a coun
ty club. He told of the many good
things that the RutheTford county
club has done, in helping to unite
the county, wipe out sectional feel
ing, eliminated ill feeling between
certain large interests and had
dene much for the agricultural,
commercial, social and moral wel
fare of his county. He told of the
value of a county club being af
filiated with the national organ
ization, which would furnish each
member with a magazine, programs,
and interesting articles on subtecls
like county government, county
business affairs, etc. Mr. Price
further stated that the county club
broadens one’s viewpoint and makes
the member think in terms cf his
county. It helps to unite the town
and country people to work as one
unit.
Speakers.
Prof. Lawton Blanton, principal
of Lattimore graded school was th?
next speaker. He was enthusiastic
for the county club for Cleveland
and suggested some problems chat
might be worked out, such as bet
ter health for our school children.
Mr. Blanton was applauded by the
big crowd.

Cleveland county fair, J. H. Grigg,
county superintendent of schools,
John Beam and H. M. Loy, Shelby,
County Solicitor P. C. Gardner, Joe
E. Blanton and others. All agreed
that a county club would do much
good in Cleveland county.
The encouraging thing about the
situation in Cleveland is the large
number of farmers who were pres
ent and showed an interest in a
county-wide civic club in which
they would be well represented.
Temporary Officers.
Enough signed the application
blanks to secure a club. It was
moved and carried that a Cleveland
county club be formed and that
temporary officers be elected. Prof.
Lawton Blanton was elected presi
dent pro tem with Mr. J. L. Hern
don, secretary. Due to the farmers
being so busy it was decided to hold
charter night on Tuesday night,
November 26 at 7:30 p. m. at which
time the organization will be com
pleted, constitution and by-laws
adopted, directors elected and the
officers made permanent. All who
join up to and including charter

Jones, Charlotte attorney, former
state senator and chairman of the
Mecklenburg county Democratic ex
ecutive committee will probably be
a candidate for the party’s nomina
tion tot congressman from the ninth
district at thb June primary, it was
indicated here.
Several outstanding party leaders
have urged Mr. Jones to make the
race, it was learned. He said he had
not fully made up his mind as to
what action he would take, but indi
cated that he would run if he had
assurance that he could secure the
nomination without a bitter fight in
the primary. i
Others Mentioned.
A number of lawyers and promi
nent Democrats, have been men
tioned as possible candidates for the
poet since Major A. L. Bulwinkle of
Gastonia was defeated by Congress
man C. A. Jonas, a Republican, at
the November general election.
Among those suggested are 'Major
Bulwinkle, John G. Carpenter, dis
trict solicitor who was dafeated oy
Major Bulwinkle in the Democra’ic
Drimarv in June. 1928: F. M. Redd
lawyer and former mayor of Char

yer and state senator; W. A. Gra
ham of Lincolnton, state secretary
of agriculture, and several others
Just what support in the party
Mr, Jones has been assured is not
known, but former Gov. Cameron
Morrison is known to be supporting
Mr. Jones for the post. It is believed
that Mr. Jones would also gain the
support of O. M. Mull, state chair
man of the Democratic party, with
whom Mr. Jones worked during the
1928 campaign. Mr. Graham, who
has indicated that he would, under
no conditions, be a candidate for
congress, will probably support Mr.
Jones, is said.
Among the other Charlotte m°n
mentioned for the post. Senator
Clark is the only one who still
seems to be contemplating the race.
Mr. Redd points out he has. returned
to the practice of law after being'

Gardner Sets Flying Record For
Governors By Greensboro Flight
I
Chief Executive Hops From Raleigh
To Greensboro Airport In
Forty Minutes.
Raleigh. — Governor Gardner's
flight to Greensboro Thursday was
not the first that a chief executive
has taken, but it broke all records
for speed and reports from his ex
cellency after he had landed at the
Greensboro airport said he had
made the trip of 90 miles In 40
minutes.
A few automobilists have reported
that they have negotiated that dis
tance from Raleigh to Greensboro in
80 minutes, but nobody has been
taken along to verify the records for
fast freight. Governor Gardner was
due to speak In Summerfleld
Thursday afternoon and Thursday
night in Winston-Salem. -
The first North Carolina gover
nor known to have taken a flight
by airplane during his incumbency
was Thomas Walter Bickett, who
rode from Raleigh to Wake Forest
with Belvin W. Maynard, the fly
ing parson, the Lindbergh of his
day. v
Governor Bickett hid hfi purpose
from Mrs. Bickett. and climbed into
the pit with the Baptist preacher
and set out for the alma mater of
both the aviator and the governor.
Wake Forest. The preacher-flier
took Governor Bickett to ride end
gave him a thrilling flight. Over
Gore field, hardly above the ground
The preacher-pilot lifted his ma
chine in time to clear the trees ad
joining the field.
As Governor Bickett hopped off
with the preacher his excellency
waved his hands at the crowd and
said: “Tell Max Gardner to make a
good governor.” Governor Gardner
was then lieutenant governor. After
the flying pair returned to Raleigh,
Bickett stuck, up his short stubby
fingers at Maynard and said 'Par
son, I want you to quit this flyhtg
business. You will get killed if you
don’t.”
Bickett was <^ad within a Tittle
more than two years and Maynard
was killed about four years later in
making a flight for a county fair in
one of the New England states. Gov
ernor Gardner rode with Pilot E. L.
Benway and W. H. Decker today.
The universal' prayer was that his
Excellency would make the trip
without mishap.
Harding Opens
Record Docket
Superior Court
Four Killing Cue* And 160 Othei
Cases On Docket For Trial
Thli Week.
A superior court term faced by
the heaviest criminal docket In th«
history of Cleveland county eon*
vencd here this morning with Judge
W. F. Harding, of Charlotte, pre
siding and Solicitor Spurgeon Spur] •
Ing, of Lenoir, prosecuting.
In addition to four killing cases,
a record in itself for the county, the
court is faced with disposing of 160
other criminal cases.
• Court Officers.
Mr. Thad Ford, of 8helby, was
named foreman of the grand jury
and Deputy Sheriff J. J. Wllklna Is
the officer In charge, while Deputy
M. A. Jolley Is acting as court of
ficer.
No First Degree.
It was the general presumption
about the court room this morning
that the court would hardly prefer
the first degree murder charge in
any one of the four killing cases
These cases are the Hornbuckle cess
in which A. J. (Kid) HoitotmeMe.
widely known boxer, is charged with
killing George Scruggs with a stink
of cord wood; the Orover case in J
which several young white men are
charged with fatally assaulting a
negro; the fatal shooting of
negro Saturday night at Lawndale,
and the case against Ollff Fuller
wider, negro, charged with killing
his brother-in-law at a r»gro
church some,months back.
The Hornbuckle case, due to the
reputation of the defendant as a
boxer, will likely attract more In
terest than any other case.
