In 1630 the Shelby Creamery
lacked only,?, little paying to farm

Mr. Wm. I ineberger, creamery
head, shows that during the year a

butter-fat.
Price Is Low.
"That's a pretty good amount of
cash for the dairy farmers of the
county,’’ he ?aid, "but it is the lea .
year's business we have had yet.
The same conditions that have ef

have lowered everything else. The
price received for butter, and sub

years. There is less demand for but

The price of shaves and shoe

Cleaning price, but the new prices
were considerably under the old;

The next reduction came this I
week when one local barber shop |
dropped the price of hair cuts 10
cents and the price of shaves five |

Then a shoe shop began shaving
off the prices of half soles, full soles,

Another shoe shop comes back to

resulted from the price war came
up in a group of men who began

City Gets Additional Advertising By
Review of Population In
crease Figure*.
Shelby, the city that led all North
Carolina cities and towns in pop
ulation increase from 1920 to 1930,
Is receiving additional publicity be
cause of a census review made in a
recent issue of the University News
Letter.
The university periodical publishes
a table of cen. us figures showing
the growth of the twenty-one cities
in tin* state with a population
greater than 10.000,
The following comment on popu
lation increases tn the state was j
made by S. H. Hobbs, Jr., one of the j
editors of the News letter:
There are twenty-one citiea In!
North Carolina with more than ten
thousand inhabitants each. Nine
teen of these increased in population
during the last decade, while two'
decreased. The largest percent growth }
was made by Shelby which almost
exact! ytrebled its slse. Three other;
cities, Greensboro, High Point and
Durham, more than doubled their'
official population during the de
cade.
Thirteen of these larger cities acre'
west of the Pall line, while eight—
mainly the smaller ones—are locat
ed lu the eastern half of the state.
The two cities that lost population
are in the tidewater area, while the
three showing the .smallest, Increase
are also located well down toward
the coast. These twenty-one cities
have 592,814 inhabitants or 54.5 per
cent of ail the corporate dwellers In
North Carolina.
From Five To Ten Thousand,
There are thirty incorporated
places with from five to ten thous
and Inhabitants. Fourteen of these
are in the western part of the state, j
with three east of the Pall line.!
These larger towns experienced a
rather marked gain in population.
Two mqre than doubled their popu
lation, while eight gained more than
fifty percent. Morganton led this ■
Troii)) with an increase of 109.3 per- !
cent, while Washington is last with j
a gain of 11.4 percent. These seven- !
teen large towns contain nearly 114 j
thousand inhabitants.
From 2,500 To 5.000.
There ar ethirty incorporated
towns from twenty-five hundred to
five thousand inhabitants, about
evenly distributed between the east
and the west. Spindale with more
than 3,000 inhabitants was not
incorporated ten years ago. Two
others in this group more than dou
bled their population. Most of the
loans of this group experienced
from fair to large gains in popula
tion Only eight grew less rapidly
than the state as a whole. One, a
tidewater town, la;t population.
These thirty towns contain more
than 103 thousand inhabitants.
The United States census classi
fies as urban those places above
twenty-five hundred inhabitants.
There are sixty-eight such places In
North Carolina. These sixty-eight
census-size places have a combined
population of 809,846. Almost three
fourts of the so-called urban pop
ulation live in the twenty-one cities
with more than ten thousand in
habitants. The remaining one
fourth live in the other forty-seven
census-size towns.
From 1,000 To 2,500
There are ninety-one incorporated
places ranging in size from one
thousand up to twenty-five hun

Tlie office of district, attorney pays
$5,600, and there is an expense tl

lor the reason that it does not re

Gardner Frees Prison Convict
Who Became Sculptor And Made
Bust Of Governor And HifSon
Man “Who Picked Cp Art" In Pri
son, Known In Shelby, Gets
A Parole.
The prison sculptor who made
the bust of Max Gardner, jr., which
has been seen by many Shelby peo
ple in the mansion at Raleigh, Is
now a free man and may pursue the
art which has brought him fame.
Jack Landingham, who came to
state's prison in June. 1928, from
Buncombe county to serve an 11
year sentence for forgery and false
pretense, was paroled Wednesday.
Landingham was state’s prison's
sculptor, and one of its most color
ful inmates
During his incarceration, Land
ingham devoted all his spare time
to his 'artwhich he said he “just
picked up” to pas? off the thous
ands of hours that go to make 11
years.
His “work” began to attract the
attention of prison attendants, ana
la little storeroom in the prison
j basement was given him. He fixed it
>up into a “studio"—and every spare
moment had found him working on
some bu-t in clay.
The prisoner “leaped to fame” and
a wide, bit of publicity when Gover
nor Gardner consented to sit for
him. The bust of the governor bore
: a marked resemblance to the
' state’s chief executive, and he was
so pleased that he,allowed his
youngest son, O. Max. jr., to pose
for the prhon sculptor.
The bust of the governor’s son. In
plaster, is on the chief executive's
desk In his study at the mansion.
Landlngham kept his ■ work” of the
governor, and he “evinced a great
deal of pleasure showing It to pri
son visitors who went to his studio.'1
The parole papers reached prison
Thursday. Warden Honeycutt said,
'and Landingham, who is about 35
'years old, will be free to pursue the
("art” he "just picked up.”
Much Talk Here
Of Salary Slash
For Public Jobs
View* Vary Here
On Proposal
Some Agree. Others Disagree With
Gardner Plan. All Want
More Economy.
The proposal of Governor Gard
ner i hat salaries of all public of
ficials be slashed 10 percent in or
der to carry out his economy pro
gram tor the state and to reduce
taxes is widely discussed in Ids home
county as It is elsewhere over the
stale. ■
It is impossible to say just what
is the prevailing sentiment among
those who nave been discussing she
matter In Cleveland county. Many
agree that he Gardner plan Is the
only way out. and the only practi
cal method by which expenses can
be lowered to meet present day
business conditions. Others thin!;
the slash program a bit too harsh if
it includes all public workers. Still
others take a, middle-ground view
by declaring that the slash should
be made on a scale basis.
The jicale Idea.
“As 1 look at It," one citizen says,
"to make a general cut of 10 per
cent, in the salary of all public
workers is not exactly proper. Some
public workers draw high salaries
that can stand cutting. Others draw
medium salaries, and still others
are barely making enough to meet;
living costs. I think the governor is
right in the general Idea of reduc
tion. But the salary slash should
be scaled in proportion to the sal
aries received. For instance, I think
it should be scaled somewhat i»
this manner: Reduce the salaries
of those receiving *5,000 or moxa
per year 15 per cent, reduce the
salaries of those receiving *3,000 of
more 10 percent, reduce the salaries
of those receiving *2.500 up to *3,
000 by five per cent, with no reduc
tion for those who do not make
more than *2,500. The average publio
worker who makes no more than
that should tiot be cut, for he, or
she, as most of them have families,
are just making enough to live on.
Fifty to *150 per month clerks,
teachers and other public workers
have enough of a task as it Is to
make ends meet. But there are
many public workers who can stand
a cut and get along."
All Favor Economy.
The salary slashing proposal may
meet with varying opinions, but in
Shelby and over the county the
Gardner economy program and tax
reduction plan is meeting with gen
eral approval. Citizens generally are
strong for economy, in other words,
but differ as to the proper proce
dure.
Public officials here are saying
little about the matter for publica
tion.
Newspaper Views.
The newspapers of the state,
taken as a whole, seem to be lined
up behind the salary-cutting plan.
Discussing the matter, the Ashe
ville Citizen says:
"Everybody Is for tax reduction.
Everybody is for economy in govern
ment. But put forward a specific
proposal looking in that direction
and see what tjappens to it.
"Governor Gardner has ably and
courageously laid his plan for re
ducing costs before the people. Al
ready the plan Is having hard sled
ding and it is likely that the golnrt
will continue to lie rough.
"Cm the one hand are those who
see various difficulties and objec
tions to the cuts which the gover
nor suggests. On the other hand are
those who still insist that there is
plenty of new tax money to be had
if only this, that or the other pet
scheme of their own is adopted.
"The facts are with the governor
and the governor is with the tax
payers.”
“It gripes us,” comments The
Gastonia Gazette, "to hear some of
the state employes growling and
beefing about the proposed salary
cut recommended by Governor
Gardner. "■

of ten per cent In salaries should
