Of Shelby; Charity
Fund Jumps To $300
Shelby Business Men And Citizens Loosen
Up Purse Strings And Shove $85 Total
To $300 Over Week-end. *
It’s going to be Christmas in Shelby, after 9II, and Santa

him, thanks to scores of Shelby people who loosened up their
purse strings over the week-end and sent The Star's Christ
mas Stocking Fund for the poor of the town shooting up
from the $85 mark to more than $300.
| The big boost to the fund came
from Shelby merchants who gave
merchandise equal to $175. But oth
er cash contributions, also, piled In
—$5 checks, $10 checks, dollars and
halves, and so on.
J. B. Smith, county welfare of
ficer called upon a number of mer
chants Friday and they readily
contributed as they have in the
past! However, due to the fact that
he la having more charity calls and
investigations to make right now
than ever before Mr. Smith was
unable to visit every firm. At some

agers were out and other employes
could not say just how much their
firms would give. These will con
tribute later and the welfare officer
together with members of the civic
committee handling the fund will
call on the firms not called upon
as yet. Professional men and of
fice workers will also be visited this
week by the canvassing committee

Costs $50 To Grow Acre Cotton
Expert Says; Cleveland A Leader
Raldgh.—Cotton farming explains
its deathly exponents in the light of
farm management specialist R. H.
Rogers, of State college, who finds
that the planter must make 312
pounds of lint an acre in order to
break even at 16 cents a pound.
Cleveland county undoubtedly
beats this 312 pounds an acre, but
it Is doubtful M r.nother county does.
Mr. Rogers says that it C06t3 $50 an
acre to produce cotton, no matter
what the boll weevil or the sow
bosom merchant, or the other in
cidentals, to taae an acre of cotton
and, get it in shape during the
spring till it during the summer and
pick the crop during the fail, require
the expenditure of $50. I,ess than
300 pounds of lint to the acre, .sold
at the current prices, would put the
grower in the hole.
"It usually costs about $50 an acre
to produce one acre of cotton,” R.
H. Rogers says. “Using this figure
as a basis, it is easy to calculate the
yield necessary to break even with
the crop. If cotton is selling for 16

Shelby Boys Make
One ‘Hitch Hike’
From Pacific Here
Stranded In Los Angeles Two Bovs
Catch One Ride From Pac
ific To Atlantic.
Two Shelby boys—Ed Harris and
Carl Gardner—home, and glad of
it, from the Pacilic coast, Hollywood
and Loa Angeles, arts, entitled to
claim the world’s record for a cross
continent “hitch hike." In one
hitch the two youths came from
within seeing alstance of the Paci
fic ocean to their home state which
runs into the Atlantic.
Harris, a son of Mr. and Mrs. Will
Harris, and Garuner, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Clarence Gardner, left here
weeks back for the West and Cali
fornia, traveling with Attorney By
num Weathers in his car. Along
about the same time Fred Logan and
Brevard Lattimore left by automo
bile tor a visit to the Pacific coast.
After touring about Texas, Mexico,
Arizona, New Mexico and Califor
nia. Logan and Lattimore came back
to Los Angeles to start the home
ward trip! They had heard that the
other Shelby party was somewhere
in the West but were of the opinion
that the others were in Texas. But
occasionally one bumps into th:
proverbial needle in a haystack
While cutting through a side street
from one of the wide Loa Angeles
boulevards to another Lattimore
and Logan very near struck a man
with their car at a street intersec
tion, and upon stopping discovered
that the man was Attorney Weah
ers. After the customary greetings
among home folks when all are as
far away from home as is possible
without getting off the continent
Lattimore and Logan Inquired about
Harris and Gardner and were in
formed that the two youths were
some distance up town waiting in
line before an employment office.
Home On 70 Cents.
When Harris and Gardner were
located the other party soon learn
ed that Harris still had one dime,
with which lie was nonchalantly
starting to a snow despite the dis
tance between lnm and home and
the next meal, and that Gardner
had the magnificent total of 60
cents. Some mention was made of
home and the two youngsteis with
a total wealth or 70 cents made a
trade few reservations in the Logan
Lattlmore car vuereby they were to
pack, and unpack tents, luggage, and
eating utensils end thus work their
way back.
Saturday night about 8 o'clock
the party of four came rolling .into
Shelby, and presumably Harris,
former Shelby high and Citadel
football player, was still living on
his dime, for through the West the
telegraph offices are very strict !n
observing the rule that no collect
messages may he sent home unless a
deposit made—and the dime was
not considered a sufficient de
posit.
Across Continent On Dime.
And so it is that Harris can ex
cel the old boost about turning a
team of mules, or a flivver on a
dime. He traveled from coast to
coast on a ten cent piece.
