'May Issue Postage
For Kings Mountain
Appears Probable That Poatolfice
Department Will Commemorate
Fight At Kings Mountain.
Washington.—A possibility extits
that the postoffies department will
issue a commemorative postage
stamp in recognition of the 150th
anniversary of the Battle of King's
Mountain and thejeby honor both
North Carolina and South Carolina.
Postmaster Oencral Walter F.
Brown made public that he Is con
sidering no less than 72 requests
for the issuance of commemora
tive stamps to mark various his
toric or otherwise noteworthy
events or to pay tilbute to notable
figures in the nation's history. None
of the 72 have been approved as
yet, however, he declared,
i Although the list Is an imposing
one. including various anniversaries
and dedicatory occasions, the sig
nificance of the Eattle of Kings
Mountain undoubtedly w!ill merit
more than ordinary consideration
to the request. Inasmuch as Presi
dent Hoover already has been in
vited to attend the exercises on the
famous battlefield next fall by Rep
resentative Charles A. Jonas of the
Charlotte district, possible accep
tance on his part may result In
comi»llance car the part of the post
Postmaster General Brown also
announced that he had received
a request to issue a commemora
tive stamp in honor ot Isaac Shelby,
described as tire hero of the Bat
tle of Kings Mountain, but ballet
prevails that the anniversary of the
momentous conflict would receive
whatever consideration is possible
Instead of singling out any partic

post of flee department is noted in
it* Inclusion in the list of requests
»n Item seeking * cominemortu've
stamp for the “39th annuel re
union of Confederate veterans to
be held in Charlotte.” Since this
event and several others in the
group already have been held, tne
department Is faced with a some
what more abbreviated list.
"Such requests were received
from January 1. 1921 to December 1,
1929,” Postmaster General Brown
stated. "Nine commemorative
stamps have been issued by the
department since May 26. 1928,
each one representing ' some out
standing event In connection with
the development and history of the
nation. Since the first issue of
commemorative stamps, in 1889, the
department has placed in circula
tion but 26 such stamps In addi
tion to three memorial stamps.”
"The cetablished policy of the
department, which is based upon
administrative limitations has been
to restrict special stamps to com
memorate anniversaries of impor
tant historical or industrial event*
of national interest.”
In addition to ti e King's Moun
tain stamp, requests have been
made also for stamps to mark toe

double-header with the Behvoori
boys and girls here Friday night.
The Belwood girls nosed out an
18-17 win while the boys were hand
ed a 32-10 defeat at the hands cf
The girls' game, which was the
opener for the night, was a hard
fought battle from the start to the
finish, Harrill lea in the defensive
work for Lattimore and Irvin was
the star on the offense with 8
points to her credit. The entire
team showed considerable Improve
ment over their first, game.
In the second game Captain
Deune was leading a well drilled
team from Belwood. but the con
sistently good guarding and the
gallant offense of Lattimore proved
to be too much for the Belwood
cagers. In mentioning the stars it
would be necessary to name the en
tire startlnng lineup of Lattimorr.
Morehead again showed his ability
to hold down the running guard
post by playing a beautiful defen
sive game. Ho also chalked up sis
points. Branton played a gre.it
game at standing guard and did a
neat job of convincing the fans that
he may be very capable of filling the
shoes of ‘'Tubby” Harrill, star guard
of bygone days. Brooks flashed Into
form to lead in scoring with atnu
points. He was pushed hard by his
hard-fighting captain and center, V.
Weathers. Captain Weathers also
played a good floor game. Callahan
played a great game at the other
forward position. Gold showed up
best among the subs.

FOND OF LONG CIGARS
Few things strike the visitor to

votion to the fragrant weed by ail
classes. The cigar Is the favorite
form of smoke and this is not. by
any means confined to the elders,
tor it is Just as common among the
case that even young children who
can scarcely walk are to be seen In
company with their parents enjoy
ing a mild form of cigar.
The women are confirmed smok
ers and it is a frequent sight to see
pretty young girls seated beside
their bazaar shops smoking cigars
about nine incites long. The cigars
commonly used by the young boys
and the women are made of some
kind of vegetable matter, roughly
folded together, and is not very
harmful. The Burma cheroots” are
much stronger and are made oi

grown in India and from thence
exported to Burma. Probably In
no country in the world is smoking
