Democratic Leaders Try To Mend
Breaks. Two States Open Arms
To Hoovcrcrats.
Atlanta. Ga.—Democratic effort
to mend the break in the south
caused by defections to Herbert
Hoover in 1928 have brought dis
ciplinary action from the party or
ganizations In three states.
Alabama barred as candidates
those who supported the republican
presidential ticket and those who
openly and publicly opposed the
nominee of the democratic party.
The state committee welcomed back
as voters, however, all who support
ed Hoover.
This ruled out of this year s pri
mary United States senator J.
Thomas Heflin. In returning Hef
lin’s primary entrance fee. state
chairman E. W. Pettus said that
Heflin had declared that he did not
vote the republican ticket but fail
ed to state that he did not openly
and publicly oppose the election of
the democratic presidential nomi
nee.
Heflin has announced for re
election in face of the ruling of the
party state committee.
Arkansas Takes Action,
The' Arkansas democratic state
committee has ordered enforcement
of the rule forbidding bolters from
participating in the primary. The
rule which already existed does not
allow any one who bolts in the
general election to vote in the dem
ocratic primary for two years.
Despite a request from Dr. A. C.
Millard, Methodist editor and
leader of the anti-Smith forces, the
committee declined to change the
rule. Millard has announced the
probability of taking steps to or

Bailey Would Keep Republicans
Out Of Democratic Primary This
Year; Cites N. C. Election Law
Democratic Candidate Wants Elec
tion Law Followed In June.
Law Is Explicit.
Raleigh.—Republicans will be
kept out of the democratic primary
this year, J. W. Bailey, candidate
for the democratic nomination to
the United States senate, said here
at the close of the first day his
headquarters were officially open
ed
C. L. Shuping, of Greensboro,
who will manage Mr. Bailey’s* cam
paign against Senator F. M. Sim
mons, opened headquarters and hi
a statement said that the BaiJey
campaign will be "clean and hon
est" and “maintained at all times
upon a high plane.”
To support his declaration tnat
“republicans will be kept out of the
primary" in June, Mr. Bailey cited
the North Carolina election laws as
amended by the 1929 general as
sembly.
The law says "no person shall be
entitled to participate, or vote in'
the primary election of any politi
cal party unless he has first de
clared and had recorded on the reg
istration book that he affiliates
with the political party in whose
primary he proposes to vote and is
In good faith a member thereof,
meaning that he intends to affil
iate with the political party in
whose primary he proposes to vote
and is in good faith a member
thereof.”
The statute further declares that
when a person expresses the desire
to vote at a primary he shall de
clare the political party with which
he affiliates and in whose primary
he desirtv to vote and shall be tur
nished with the ballot of that party.
And ‘‘at the time of voting, the
name of the voter shall be entered
on a primary ballot book to be
provided and kept for the purpose,
with the name of the party whose
ticket he voted, the book to be kept
in the clerk’s office until the next
election.”
Mr. Shuping said that Mr. Bai
ley's campaign was very ‘‘encourag
ing” and predicted his nomination, j
County Club In
Lively Meeting
Here Last Night
Several Speakers On
Good Program
Membership Fees And Due* Of Or
ganization Reduced. Farm
Agent, Teachers Talk.
An enthusiastic and very interest
ing meeting of the newly organized
Cleveland County club, a county
aide boosters organization, was
held last night at the Wayside res
taurant here, the program center
ing about the live-at-home drive in
the county.
Twenty-five members were pres
ent, several of them new members,
and the meeting was presided over
by Prof. Lawton Blanton, of Lattl
more, who is the first president of
the club.
Interesting Talks.
In keeping with the live-at-home
idea three very beneficial and in
teresting talks were made by R. W.
8hoffner, county farm agent; P. M.
Coley, agricultural teacher at the
Lattimore high school: and C. E.
Dillingham, agricultural teacher at
the Polkville No. 8 high school. The
three speakers pointed out how
Cleveland county lives at horn* How
and how the farmers of the county
may produce even more food and
feed and thus become less depend
ent upon outside sources. With the
club membership composed of lead
ing citizens from all sections of the
county it is thought that the talks
of the three agricultural men will
have much influence in the county
during 1930.
A short but engaging talk was
also made by A. E. Cline, chairman
of the county commissioners and
head of the county agricultural
board. In addition to references to
the live-at-home drive, Mr. Cline
cited instances whereby the county
club can be of general help to the
entire county, all citizens and tax
payers.
In order to bring about a larger
membership and so strengthen The
club that its work may be mo-e
beneficial the gathering decided
that the initiation feet should be re
duced to $2.50 and that the annual
dues should also be lowered' to tne
same amount. With the reduced
fees and dues present officials end
members of the organization hope
to double the membership within
the next few months.

After 3 Years
Convict Returns To
Chain Gang Here
Kalph Oran. Who Escaped Twice, 1
la Tired Of Bring A Hunted
Man.
Yesterday Ralph Dean, young
r.astomu white man who e&caocd
from the chain gang here rnwi
than three years ago while he was
serv’lng a sentence Imposed for
rape, returned to Shelby, donuhi
Ills convict stripes and resumed his
work on the No. 6 township road.1,
determined to complete his time
after having escaped twice.
The young fellow, who has trav
elled over much of the country In
his three years of freedom, came
back to his stripes, he says, because
life Is no pleasure when one is u 1
hunted man.
A little World.
“It’s tt little world after all, ’ lie
told officers here yesterday. "No
matter where I would go I always
kept running Into someone who
knew me and I had to keep dodg
ing them lor fear that they would
report me. Life like that will wor- ’
you to death. Once I had a job Jn
Akron, making $36 a week, then one
day who walked In to work at the
machine next to me but a boy froei
Gastonia who I knew and who knew
me. Of course I had to move on.
and everywhere I went someone else
would see me and I'd have to keep
moving. I'm going to stay here this
time so that I can make my own
mind easy by knowing that I’m u
free man when I leave. There’s no
fun to dodging your life away.”
Another bit of Dean's story which
came out was that after leaving
one place for another, after being
recognized, he finally found himself
without a job, without money and
hungry. Presumably he reached the
conclusion that it would be better
to be back on the gang here with
three square meals a day (hart to

It Is the second time that Dean
has returned. And he came back

Two Catawba Candidates For
Judgeship May Hurt Chances Of
Each Other In The June Primary
Hickory Paper Urges One To Get
Out. B. T. Falls Still Con
sidering Race.
Judge B. T. Falls, of Shelby, Is
still considering the race for the
democratic nomination for superior
court Judge to succeed Judge Jam
es L. Webb, who will retire this
year, and the fact that Falls may
be a candidate with Attorney A. L.
Quickel, of Llncohiton, is causing
some worry on the part of Catawba
county leaders where two demo
cratic attorneys hate already an
nounced.
The first candidate to announce
for the judgeship subject to the
June primary was Attorney Wilson
Warlick, of Newton. Some weeks
thereafter Attorney Marshall Yount
of Hickory, announced. In view of
the fact that Catawba has two can
didates, leaders there this week in
augurated a movement with the
apparent idea of having one of the
two withdraw with the e - greased
fear that the two Catawba candi
dates might split the vote ol that ’
county, cause the voters of the
other counties to think that Ca
tawba couldn't agree on one of
their hopes and, therefore, vote for
Falls or Quickel.
Several propositions with the In-'
tent of getting either Yount or
Warliek to withdraw have been
passed between the two factions, it
is understood, but have as yet
brought no results.
Mr. Quickel, of Lihcolnton, has
not definitely entered the race, nei
ther has Mr. Falls, who is referred
to by the Hickory papers as "B. F.
Fall,” but the Shelby attorney is
this week traveling a bit about the
district, perhaps on legal business,
and perchance to determine, if pos
sible, how the wind is blowing, or
may blow in June. Both, naturally,
are interested in the activity of
friends of the two Catawba candi
dates.
Concerning the likelihood that
two candidates in Catawba may
serve to lessen that county's chance
of landing the judgeship- The Hick
