Officers
One source of supply for Christ
mas egg-nog was eliminated Friday
afternoon by a group of Cleveland
county deputies in their effort to
mrke it a dry Christmas hereabouts.
The plant, a neat copper affair
and one of the most sarBtary and I
modern stills seen in this county in
years, was captured along with one
of the three operators n the npper
portion of No. 11 township, the still
being in full blast when the officers
crept up.
Two Get Away.
Two of the operators transformed
themselves into human barrels and
rolled down the mountainside to es
cape from the deputies but the
third, Corrin Hudson, r young white
man about 22 years of rge, was cap
tured and brought to jail here to
await trial. Officers making the
raid were Deputies Tom Sweezy,
Lindsay Dixon, Loren Hoyle and
Plato Ledford.
The still, of about 30-gallon ca
pacity, was new and apparently the
first riAi w/ts on. A jug was sitting
under the worm and about two and
cne-half gallons of whiskey, which
was seized, had trickled into it when
the officers arrived. The capture
also included about 300 gallons of
beer. ,
The Christmas spirits factory was
on display in Sheriff Allen's office

Bank Bandit, Once In Shelby, Is
Caretaker For Governor Gardner
At Raleigh Mansion; Is Trusted
"Portland Ned” Once Planned To
Rob Postoffice Here But Was
Stopped By Killing.
(By RENN DRUM.)
When Governor and Mrs. Gard
ner came to Shelby yesterday to
spend the Yuletile holidays at home
they left the stately executive man
sion at Raleigh, with its priceless
furniture, valuable silverware, and
paintings in the care of the mansion
caretaker—"Portland Ned,” who
just a decade or so back was one ot
America's most notorious bank
bandits and Jeggmen.
And when the Governor and his
First Lady return to the hand
some edifice in which North Caro
lina has housed her governors for a
half century they are positive that
they will find nothing missing, the
big mansion in fine working order,
and "Portland Ned,” now a man of
58 with streaks of gray in his thatch
of hair, pottering about the man
sion grounds keeping the other
mansion servants on the go.
Trusted To Utmost.
•'Portland Ned." a dangerous
criminal reformed because men. who
believed that there is some good in
the worst of them, placed their
confidnce in him, has been mansion
caretaker for four years or so and
insofar as anyone can discover not a
thing has been stolen or misplaced
about there. Ned, now on the |
straight and narrow, is proud of the
fact that he has shown the world
that he can walk the proverbial
moral chalk-line rnd in his crim
‘nal career he became so experienc

that anyone who might try to rob

Annual Banquets Of Mill Pivot
Men Of Dover, Shelby And Ella
Dr. Daniels Is Speaker At Diver
Banquet. Mr. Dover
Talks.
“Every man a bank account at the
end of 1930” was the slogan adopt
ed by the employees of the Dover,
Ora and Eastside mills at their an
nual banquet held Saturday night
at the high school building, where
a most sumptuous meal was served
by the members of the Daughters cf
the American Revolution to the 150
“pivot” men of the three institutions
headed by Mr. John R. Dover.
Dr. Daniels Speaks.
It was declared to be the best
meeting the "pivot” men have had
from the standpoint of the meal
served and from the program, with
Mr. Dover delivering a five minute
talk, fraught with “uncommon
common” sense remarks. The en
tertainer for the evening wa3 Dr.
D. W. Daniels, a member of the
faculty of Clemson college, S. C„.one
of the most popular after-dinner
speakers in the South and a man
who kept his audience in an up
roar of laughter by his side-split
ting jokes. Then, again, he would
recite some inspiring poem with
wonderful effectiveness as a still
ness hovered over his audience. His
subject was “’j.he Joyous Life.”
No Socialism Here.
Mr. Dover who instituted these
annual banquets when his organ
ization was small 30 years ago and
the men were served in his home,
declared that while he was not rich
in this worjd's goods, he was grate
ful for his true, ^arm hearted
friends and for the loyalty of the
men of the organizations who had
been fortunate in having regular
Jobs during the year. Here there
has been no confidence destroyed,
no hearts impoverished with hate
and no hands stained with blood,
but the mill workers have been
true, loyal sun-crowned men with
no tendencies toward socialism and
bolshevism. “Every true American
does not want a hand-out” declar
ed Mr. Dover. They want an op
portunity to accomplish something
for themselves and this has been
the conception of the workers in
this community.
Mr. Dover stated in his eloquent

Rev. L. B. Hayes Makes Interesting
Talk On “Good Will” To Shel
by Mill Overseers.
Approximately lour score people,
the majority of them foremen, over
seers, and departmental heads of the
Shelby Cotton mills, were guests of
the mill management at the big an
nual banquet held at the Wayside
restaurant Saturday night with Mr.
R. T. LeGrande, secretary-treasurer
of the big textile plant, serving as
general host.
The speaker of the evening v as
Rev, L. B. Hayes, pastor of Central
Methodist church, and in addition
to the sound thoughts of his gen
eral topic of "Good Will" he proved
himself very capable of filling any
after dinner speaker's role by his
adeptness at entertaining.
The meal was an unusually good
one, and the —«isic furnished £>V a
string trio—Herbert Whisnant,
Clyde Wilson and Flay Gardner—
was exceptionally well received as it
ran the gauntlett from popular airs
of the day to such old favorites as
“Turkey in the Straw” and "Red
Wings”; and throughout the en
tire affair a general good fellowship
prevailed, typical of the loyal co
operation which is always in evid
ence in the operation of the big
plant.
Rev. Mr. Hayes, with a subject
very fitting and very close to 'he
Christmas season, declared that
only by good will can make of this
world what his Maker intended, and
that peace on earth—peace instead
of war, industrial arid economic
strife, and instead of sectional
wrangling—can come only through
the channel o! good will among
men.
Informal Program.
The program for the banquet was
informal throughout. The affair
was opened with thanks returned
by Mr. W. G. Whitworth followed
by several musical selections. A
shqrt talk was made by Mr. Clir
ence Williams in behalf of tne
guests while Mr. Will Abernethy
took time off from eating to give
the gathering one of his entertain
ing Jokes. In a short talk at the
conclusion of the meal Mr. Le
Grand took opportunity to wish the

23 Hungry, Needy Urchins Enjoy
Big Christmas Feed Of Lions Club
Boys From Destitute Homes About
Shelby Get Feed, And Use
ful Gifts.
In the years to come there will be
23 people who will never forget a
civic organization in Shelby known
as the Lions club.
Friday night at the Wayside res
taurant the Lions of Shelby played
the role of hosts to 23 boys, some
of them orphans while others came
from poverty-stricken homes about
Shelby. Along the festive boird
gleamed 23 happy faces with ears
and necks scrubbed red by loving
mothers who fixed them up the beet
they could for their big night.
Mothers in the homes from which
the boys came were urged to make
up undue preparation to send the
urchins along, and here and tnere
along the line elbows stuck through
holes in sweaters that had seen bet
ter years. But it was their big
night with an entire club roster o'
Santas and in just a few minutes,
with a program especially prepared
for them the boys felt at home and
were joining their hosts in making
whoopee.
The entire program was devoted
to contests and games such as the
youthful guests would enjoy, and
the only formal note was a short
talk by J. B. Smith, welfare officer,
who helped the Lions select their
worthy young guests.
At the end of the program each
of the 23 youngsters was given a
suit of underwear and a peek of
Christmas goodies, such as oranges,
grapes, apples and bananas. Then
a dozen big cars purred out side
streets and by ways to carry the
happy little group back to their
homes—Homes where there were no
fathers, or where sickness and pov
erty had visited. Yet as 23 excited
youngsters slipped into dreamland
Friday nigh, they were positive that
there was a Santa Claus. The Lions
club 'had proven it to them.
The program was in charge of
Cobb Horn, jr, and R. L. Wilsou.
Charity Fund Santa Claus Already
Calling On Poor
Old Kris Kringle is already travelling about with his pack of Christ
mas cheer. Beginning Saturday the Santa of The Star's Christmas
charity fund began to distribute his gifts—all necessities, of life.
The early start af the distribu
tion of the fund was necessitated by
the cold wave which swooped dav -i
upon the section Thursday and Fri
day. By Friday morning calls for
help—for blankets, lor coal and for
other fuel—were coming in from
poverty-stricken homes all about the
city, and at a meeting of the fund
committee Friday afternoon it was
decided that much want and suf
fering could be helped by starting
an immediate distribution of the
fund.
Until Christmas Eve.
Distribution of the fund will con
tinue unjg Jate Christmas eve
night with members of the commit
tee helping Welfare Officer Smith
distribute the .various articles with
the 51 needy cases picked as ’ those
most worthy of aid. Gifts coming
in today and tomorrow will be add
ed to the fund to take care of last
minute appeals and cases w herein I
the contributions already made ran |

Never Knew A Santa.
One of the most pitiful eases in
Shelby developed late last week
when members of the Lions club
were canvassing the city for 23
needy and deserving boys to be the.:
guests at a big banquet last Friday
night. In one home, where :h-j
father has long been ill with tu
berculosis, the committee found a
family of six children—five boys
and one girl—with a tried, over
burdened mother as the ione means
of support. Their lot in life has
been a hard one for several years
and as the Lions questioned the
youngsters they learned that the
youngest boy, pged four years, had
never heard of Santa Claus and die.
not know who the jolly old fellow
was. Three of his oldpr brothers were
guests at the banquet of the Lions |
while The Star's Empty Stocking |
Fund will see that certain very
necessary necessities of life are lefc
at the home by Santa Christmas
eve. ,
If you haven’t contributed. It
isn't too late yet. The fund is sup
posed to formally close this eve
ning but all contributions left with
The Star, Welfare Officer Smith t or
Rush Hamrick, treasurer of the
Empty Stocking, up until noon to
morrow' will be welcomed and Is
needed.
Shelby has given less this year to
the fund than in any previous year
—and this year there is more dis
tressing want than since the fund
was originated.

Dr. R. 0. IHeks, Shelhy den
tist, who was seriously Injured
early Sunday morning when his |
automobile crashed into a con
crete traffic post tn east Gas
Ionia while hr was cn route to
Charlotte, was said to be In a
serious condition this afternoon
at 2 o’clock at the city hospital
in Gastonia where he is a pat- I
lent.
Surgeons at the hospital said 'hat
he spent a fairly comfortable night
and was doing as well today as could
be expected but that the extreme
danger was that pneumonia might
develop in Ids punctured lung.
Badly Broken Up.
Dr. Hicks was pretty badly oiok
eu up and his car badly damaged
in the crash. Both upper and lower
jaws were broken, five ribs frac'ur
ed, and his lung punctured. Today
it was said that he has not been
unconscious since entering the hos
pital.
Found By Taxi Man.
Just how long the Shelby dentist
had been lying beside the wreckage
of his car before being found is
not known. A passing taxi-driver
saw the wrecked ear about 4 o'c'ock
Sunday morning and stopped to in
vestigate, finding Dr. Kicks lying
nearby. Due to his broken Jaws the
injured man has not been able to
relate fully just how the crash oc
curred. Apparently Ins vision
through the windshield was blurred
by the heavy fog which preceded
the big snowfall.
I The traffic post which his car
struck is at the intersection of a
street in east Gastonia with Wilkin
son boulevard.
At the hospital today it was only
a matter of conjecture whether or
not the pneumonia would develop
and surgeons would say no morn
than that pneumonia very often sets
in in such cases. Should pneumonia
develop hia chances of recovery, it
is said, would be very slim due to
his numerous injuries. .

Eastern Carolina Editors More
Against Simmons Than In West
Many In Simmons Own Section Of
State Urge Bailey To Get
Rival, Announced.
(By a Star Staff Writer.)
If the newspaper editors of f'ne
section are good barometers—and
newspapermen with their fingers on
the pulse of current events general
ly know the sentiment of their sec
tions better than any other class—
the Senator Simmons, should he
have a rival Jn the Democratic pri
mary, will be more bitterly fought
in his own party there than in
Western North Carolina.
The above declaration may be
dubiously received as Senator Sim
mons is an easterner and is general
ly considered more popular there,
but newspapermen from all parts
I of Eastern Carolina in Raleigh last
j week for the Gardner live-at-homa
| feast formed a calling line at the
j office of Josiah W. Bailey beseech
| ing him to get a strong candidate
f out against the veteran senator. Of
| course all the Eastern Caroline. j
editors were not callers at the
Bailey office for many of them arq
strong Simmons supporters, but a
big percentage of those at the cap
ital for the banquet cither visited
Bailey or Ills two prospective can
didates, Stacey and Brogden, at
their offices, or made it a point to
whisper a few words to Bailey at
the feed itself a whisper that in.
formed that they were ready to chip
in and do their bit to unseat the
senator.
The apparent explanation of the
fact that Simmons' own section is
more brazen about denouncing his
alleged traltorism to his party than
the Western section is that Eastern
Carolina is far more of a Democratic
stronghold than Western Caro‘fna.
In the upset * ote last fall Eastern
Carolina voted the ticket all the way
through, including A1 Smith, but In
the western section only three coun
ties supported Smith. Simmons is
a power in the east as yet, but the

Tlmr To Get Drunk. He Tells
Large Bible Class.
—
"Of all occasions the year round
I can think of no more Inopportune
time In which to get drunk or to
drink than at Christiffes." declared
Clyde R. Hoey yesterday to more
than 200 people who attended his
big men's Bible class at Central
inothodist church.
"I love and admire each man in
this class who comes here each Sun
day to hear me teach the selected
lesson and I do not believe a single
man in this class would go home to
his mother drunk Wednesday If it
happened to be her birthday." he
said. "Neither do I believe that a
single man here would want to pre
sent a drunk husband to his wife
for a birthday present. Then why—
and there is no logical or reason
able answer—should anyone take
occasion to make the birth anniver
sary of our Lord and Master a
drunken festival?"
The Hoey class yesterday for the
fourth consecutive Sunday led the
Ivey Bible class of Charlotte in an
attendance contest being staged be
tween the two classes. The local
class led in members present, new'
members, and visitors, while the
Ivey class led in collections. A total
of 208 people were in attendance at
the Hoey class as compared with a
total of 106 at the Ivey class at
Tryon Street church in Charlotte.
