Former Governor Cameron Mor

He also made it plain that he
would be a candidate for Senator
Overman's scat in the United Strtes
senate in 1932, and since political
speculation has it that Clyde R.
Koey, of Shelby, may also be a can
didate, the short stop of the ex
gayernor here today added extra
materiai._for the political talk.
“I do not think the devil himself
could devise a surer method for
the demoralization of the Democra

Senator Simmons,” the distinguished
Charlotte man is quoted as having
said in Raleigh Saturday.
“I do not agree with those who
think the renomination of Senator
Simmons is the road to peace.”
continued Mr. Morrison. “I think It
would only result in turmoil and
disregard for party authority and
would be most unwise. I think the
thing to do is to agree on some good
man if we can, and if we can't to
fight it out.”
But while leaving no doubt as ,tc
his position insofar as Senator Sim

11 Years Ago
This Mom In
Joyous Shelby
County, Which Sent 600 Soldier
Boys To War, Awakened To
Celebrate By ’Phone Girl,
About 3 o'clock in the morn
ing eleven years ago today, the
lone operator on night switch •>
board at the Shelby telephone
office yawned, and- pashapw
powdered her nose, as she
sleepily wondered if 7 o’clock
and the day operator would
never come.
It had been a mild night with
practically no excitement since
the other operators had left at
10 o’clock. Perhaps she could
doze for a win or two.
Then came a call over the board.
Perhaps it was a call for a doctor,
coming at the hour it did. But, no, it
was a long distance call. And in
the flash of a second the yawns and i
the far-off 7 o'clock quitting hour!
were forgotten! A ’hello’ girl, ex
cited as she had never been before,
joyously began to press call buttons
and tell all Shelby a story that sent
the sleepy town into an ectasy of
happiness and a wild celebration
that did not end until the next day
—the story she told was a story
which at that hour was transform
ing a war-tom, bleeding, wonder
ing world into one of peace after it
had passed through a carnage which
had staggered the human race.
It was a short little message she
shouted gleefully into the telephone
receiver of one Shelby home after
another—“The war is over! Sure
trough, this time!’*
Celebration Starts.
Within an hour the wide, deserted
streets, which ordinarily would
have remained silent until the milk
wagons began rolling, were fill'd
with frenzied, shouting parents,
brothers and sisters, whose * boys
were then crawling from mud-filled,
blood-drenched trenches “ever
there.” Rapidly the excited gather
ing grew until at 8 o’clock it form
ed into a mammoth parade which
lasted throughout the day and kept
business at a standstill.
Mingled Emotions.
Throughout Shelby and the coun
ty as the news spread there were
mingled emotions and actions. In
many homes mothers aroused from
their slumbers a sleep marred by
sub-conscious thoughts of the bey
who might not be sleeping and
breathed a prayer of thankfulness
to the Prince of Peace for the won
drous event. Fathers rubbed their
eyes as they dressed and wondered
how the boys they sent away would
look as men now that they had

County Farmers
To Be Told 01
Their Progress
All-Day Meeting Of Farmers Here
On November 19 To Show
Farm Progress In 8 Yra.
A most interesting all-day
meeting will be held at the court
house here Tuesday, November
19, at which time Cleveland
county farmers and all others
interested In the agricultural
development of the county will
be shown by facts and flgtites
just how much progress vhe
county has made agriculturally
within the last eight years.
Announcements concerning the
:\eetlng were made today by R. W.
Shoffner, county farm agent, who
has cooperated with the county
board of agriculture in arranging
what promises to be one of the most
interesting sessions ever arranged
for the farmers of the county.
Several Speakers.
Two or three well known speakei'3
and agricultural experts will ad
dress the meeting, but the most im
portant phase of the session 13 ex
pected to be the giving of statistics,
as assembled by the agricultural de
partment, showing Just what Cleve
land fanners have and have not
done since 1920. Among the speak
ers on the program will be I. O.
Echaub, state agricultural director,
cf Raleigh, and Mr. E. S. Millsaps,
district farm agent, of Statesville.
The statistics to be presented will
show just what ranking the county
had in each crop and farm move
ment in 1920 together with the In
crease or decrease In each unit since
that time.
Dairy Cows Go!nr.
One item in the table ot statis
tics indicates just how Interesting
these figures and facts should be to
farmers of the county who are de
sirous of knowing just wha they
arc ^qcogujlishtrig and have been
■feccompnshing. This item shows that
there are 3,800 Jess dairy cow3 in
Cleveland county today than there
was in 1920. The list gives equally
eu, surprising information along
Other agrictfltural lines.
In addition to the review of eight
years of agricultural achievement in
the county the meeting will rake up
and discuss farm pros pec ts-and a
program for the year ahead.
Business men and other citizens
not directly interested in farming,
but depending as does practically
the entire county upon the farm,
are urged to attend the meeting
along with farmers and their wives.
The meeting will open at 10 o'clock
in the morning with a session again
in the afternoon.

Citizens Complain Of Being Held
Up In County As Bootleg Suspects
Numerous Citizens Halted, Inspect
ed And Occasionally Searched
By Deputies.
Just what privileges does the
law-abiding cititen have upon
the highways of Cleveland coun
ty, and how far should he stand
for being held up and searched
as a rum-running suspect by of
ficers before expressing and de
manding his rights? This query
has developed into quite a con
troversy in the county in the
last fortnight due to activities
of deputies and other officers
in attempting to apprehend
rum-runners along Highway 1ft
in the northern section of the
county.
Considerable objection ha* been 1
expressed by citizens to several
hold-ups, and lust week County Sol
icitor P. Cleveland Gardner .was |
told of several “hold-ups" in which ]
the parties stopped and questioned
v. ere leading citizens with no
tl.'ought of trafficking in booze.
Stop County Agent,
The most recent mistake in the
attempt to halt the flow of whiskey
south over Highway 18 from the
South Mountain section was on
Friday night when County Fair
agent R W. Shoffner was held up
r.nd Investigated near Toluca by
two men he did not know, but were
deputies judging by their conversa
tion and actions.
Mr. Shoffner had been to Iredell
county with Cleveland farmers to
attend a sale of Jersey cattle and
was returning home along Highway
18 and had no thoughts as he drove
along of becoming a rum-runner.
Without warning, he says, two men
hopped out into the road in front
of him, threw their flashlights upon
him and told him to stop. Due to
their sudden appearance it was im
possible for the farm agent to tell
at once whether the men were high
way robbers desiring to rob him and
perhaps steal his car or whether
they were officers. His first hunch,
he says, was to keep moving and
run by or over the two mysterious
men as the hold-up was along a
lonely stretch of road. He decided,
however, not to do so, and, instead,
he slapepd on his brakes and stop
ped the car. The two men without
ceremony or warning leaped upon
the fenders, inspected the car and

Harr 111, who has been missing from
his home-here since last Sunday
night has not been found neither
has any trace of him been found
except a hat. alleged to have been
his, discovered near the Seaboard
trestle over the South Fork river
last Wednesday.
A. diligent search has been con
ducted by Coroner Fruit Barkley
lor HarrlU's body, even to the drag
ging of the South Fork river from
the Seaboard trestle to Labaratory
mill. Sunday afternoon the pond at
Labaratory mill was drawn off with
the hope that the body would be
icund there. Earlier In the week
several sticks of dynamite were used
in breaking away rubbish heaps In
the river which were thought to be
holding the body of the missing
pian.
It is understood that Harrill real
ized his mental condition and that
he left home with suicide in mind
rather than face the alternative of
going to the state-hospital.
He is reported to have told friends
that he was going to drown him
self and that ills body would never
be found. This statement of his to
friends has caused investigation of
ficials to believe that his body is
anchored with weights.
Sheriff Reinhardt stated that in
stead of drowning himself he pos
sibly left his hat as a decoy and

tion.

Mechanical Parson Trend Is
Decried By A Baptist Leader
Rev. Mr. Dickey Says Trend Is To
"Good Mixer” Rather Than
Spiritual' Ability.
The trend of the modern church
in America, a dangerous trend, is to
demand a ‘‘live wire” and a “good
mixer” for a pastor rather than
that he be a spiritual leader cajMblc
of carrying out., the high duties of
his noble calling.
That was the opinion expressed
at the first session of Baptist pas
tors of the state cohvention at the
First Baptist church here this aft
ernoon by the Reverend Charles H.
Dickey, pastor of Memorial Baptist
church, Willlamston. Rev. Mr. Dick
ey’s address to the conference of.
leading pastors of the state came
under the subject of “The Menace
of a Standardized Ministry,” and la
his talk he deplored the tendency to
make of the minister a mere me
chanical unit of the church organ
ization.
“Rattle Of Machinery.”
The speaker used the following
quotation from another leading
minister to express his point: ‘’It
seems that the rattle of machinery
In our churches has drowned the
voice of the Spirit. . . The preacher
has little time left for the higher
duties of the office.” Another pas
tor was quoted as saying: "High
standards and perfect organization
is the order of the day but I con
sider them a curse unless they are
thoroughly spiritualized . . Our pas
tors are so busy here and there that

its 100 years Is being Staged ti s
county said to have more Baptists
to the square inch than any similar
area in the country.
Plan Centennial.
Peculiar Interest attaches to the
approaching session because of the
fact that plans will be made for tbs
proper celebration of the centennial
anniversary of the convention at the
next session either In Greenville,
where the convention was organis
ed 100 years ago, or at Raleigh,
which is more centrally located and
which has adequate hotel and
auditorium facilities.
But before the convention can
properly, celebrate neat year Is
felt that it will be necessary to car
ry to a successful culmination the
centennial campaign which was
launched a year and a half ago in
order to raise a million and a half
dollars to free the seven Baptist
colleges in the state of debt Plana
will be laid for completing the task.
Grave Problems Ahead.
It is expected that other very
vital questions will he presented and
that satisfactory solutions will be
found. That there are grave prob
lems ahead no one will deny, but. it
Is said. Baptists always have a way
of getting together and working
their way out of their difficulties.
