Negro Gees To
Higher Court
On Rape Count
Charged With Attack On 11-Ycar
Old Negro Girl AYotnan's Bond
Increased
A sordid story, in which apparent
discrepancies occasionally bobbed
Up, was related in county court here
Satrurday when J. Y. Green, mid
dle-aged colored man of the Boiling
Springs section, was given a preli
minary hearing on the charge oi
assualt-ing Ruth Jefferies, an 11
yerr-old colored girl.
At the conclusion of the tesi
mony G een was placed under a
bond of $500 for a hearing in super
ior court. The bond of the little
girl’s mother, Gertrude Jefferies,
who was tried Friday for a secret
assualt on Green with intent to
kill, was also increased from $100
to $500.
Thu Jeffries woman entered the
house where Green was_sleeping on
the morning of January 7 and ham
mered him over the head with a
lire shovel, seriously injuring him.
When she wrs tried Monday evi
dence introduced informed the
court- that she made the assault on
him because she alleged that Green
had attacked or attempted to st
ick her daughter. This evidence re
sulted in the trial Saturday of
Green.
The little girl, her mother and
other witnesses were used, the girl
testifying that Green had assaulted
iter one night while her mother was
away, Torn and bloody underwear
was introduced as evidence. The
girl's mother said she-first learned
of the assault after finding the
underwear and questioning the girl
about it.
Jealousy Motive.
Green In testifying £pr himself
stated that he was not at the Jef
fries home on the night of the al
leged assault, January 3. He was
'here on the following Monday
night- he said.
The Jeffries woman did not as
sault him he contended because of
the alleged attack, which he ve
hemently denied, but because he
had been going with her and she
was jealous of his attentions to an -
other colored woman.
The mother and daughter differ
ed in their stories as to r hat night
die alleged attack took place. These
discrepancies together with the good
reputation given Green by white
people of the Boiling Springs section
- esulted in the bond not being made
higher than $500.

City Aldzrman
Reported Dead
By Dame Rumor
r; -
Man Reported To Have Died Sud
denly Answers Calls Ot Troubled
Friends.
In Shelby today there is a
prominent citizen—a member of
the city board of aldermen—
who can tell any and all comers
'that the report of his suddrn
death Saturday must have been
grossly exaggerated.
Thereby hangs a story.
Saturday morning one of the tele
phones in The Star office Jingled.
Over the wire came the anxious
query “Is it true that Mr. S«-and-So
dropped dead just a few minutes
ago." The Star had not heard the
report, but immediately set about
finding out what there might be to
it as the citizen reported dead is
one of Shelby’s best known resi
dents.
Then up came the problem of how
to go about it. The Star did not
wish to add to the rumor without
investigating, and likewise, could not
deny It without some verification.
Still It was not a pleasant prospect
to telephone a man at his office an 1
perhaps stun him and cause his
heart to miss several beats, possibly
more, by telling him that his sud
den death had been reported. Final
ly his telephone numoer was called
and the man reported dead answer
ed in a very lively manner. Then it
became necessary to carry on a con
versation with him which would not
let . him know the real mission cf
the call. The Star, having secured
the information it sought without
permitting the man to know the
motive of the call, immediately be
gan to head off the rumor of h's
sudden death. But other friends and
interested people were also anxious.
Time and again his telephone rang.
As it happened his wife was out of
town and a big percentage of the
calls were made by wives of his
friends who Called and then asked,
when he answered, if he had any
late news from her. By this method
all worried callers managed to keep
from him the alarm and fear with
which they had called.
Later in the day a friend broke
the news to the man himself.
“Well,” he said, "I’ve been won
dering at the peculiar calls I have
had all days. People who seldom
ever called me suddenly began le.e
phoning me and when I would an
i s-* er they would begin asking me
unusuaL. questions. Now that I know
what they were calling about I am
as much puzzled as anyone else to
know how it started.”
Just where or how the false rum
or originated no one seems to kn 'W
but the rapidity with which ii
spread adds to Shelby's reputation
as a city where rumors spread eas
ily and speedily.

New School Bill Only Means
To An End; Hope To Get Larger
Equalization Fund For Schools
State Supported Six Months Schools
Will Not Kesull From Move,
Legislators Say,
-.
Raleigh, Feb, 2.—The present gen
eral assembly has no Intention of
enacting legislation to put. the Mac
Lean. bill into effect and really
bring about complete state support
of the six-months school term, and
has not intended to any of the time,
Neither does it intend to make any
radical changes in the administra
tion of the schools as now consti
tuted, since none of the counties
want, any more central centralized
in Raleigh than Is now the case.
So there Is not going to be any
state-supported six months school
term.
This is the private opinion of ‘.he
majority of the leaders in both
houses both among those who op
posed and supported the MncLean
bill, although for the present most
of them decline to be quoted.
However, It Is likely that the en
actment.of the MacLean bill will r >
[suit in an enlarged equalizing fund,
probably *10,000.000 or *12.000,000,
which will give almost 11 not entire
ly as much tax relief to the various
counties as they would receive un
der full state maintenance of the
six-months school term. This will
carry the additional advantages that
the state will not have to contribute
anything toward the support of the

Mr. Piercy Dies

Path Church.
After suffering a stroke of paraly
sis at his home in the Ella Mill vil
lage Saturday night, Mr. G. M.
Pearcy, age 54 and a half years, died
Sunday afternoon at 3:45 o’clock.
Mr. Pearcy was one of the most
highly esteemed citizens of the Elia
mill village, noted for his honesty
and integrity of character.
He moved with his family to
Shelby from Rutherford county
about six years ago and was a mem
ber of the Second Baptist church at
the time of his death. The funeral
will be conducted this afternoon at
2 o'clock by his pastor, Rev. L. L.

Mooresboro And
Lattimore Have
Same Population
Mooresboro Increased More In De
cade Than Lattimore. Villages
Grow Slow.
A survey of the Increase or de
crease in population In population
of Incorporated North Carolina vil
lages of less than 500 population
shows that Cleveland county's two
villages in that classification,
Mooresboro and Lattimore, have the
same number of inhabitants—270.
Mooresboro's increase from 1920
jto 1930 was 18.4 percent while Lat
tlmore's Was only tlire percent, ac
' cording to the survey of village
j growth in the state.
The total population of the 237
incorporated villages In North Car
olina Is 62,395. Tills means, says the
News Letter, that If all these small
towns were consolidated Into one
city, the total population would be
only slightly larger than Greens
boro ot; Durham, and considerably
less than Charlotte. Only a little
more than six percent of the cor
porate dwellers of the state live in
these 237 Incorporated small towns.
Another very Interesting fact
about these 237 villages Is that their
total net growth during the decade
was only 6,697 Inhabitants, or less
than the growth of Shelby alone,
and about one-sixth the growth of
Charlotte. The average town above
ten thousand grew twice as much
as all the incorporated villages com
bined.
The average village increased thir
ty-thre Inhabitants during the de
cade, or les., than, one family per
year!

Sun Spots Caused Warmest Janaary In 50 Years;
Flowers Are Blooming In Rocky Mountains Now
Chicago, Feb. 2.—America’s warm
est January in half a century may
be blamed in part on the mysterious
spots on the sun, Prof. Griffith
Taylor, one of the nation’s noted
climatologists, says. ,*u.
Flowers are blooming in the
Rocky Mountain region, Butterflies
are flitting from blossom to blos

city of St. Paul is wondering what
to do with its fund of $100,000 for

no snow to remove. Middle Western

farmers are confronted by a criti
cal drought.
Winter, with its blizzards, below
zero temperatures, gales, sleet and
snow merely is a memory of other
years. And sun spots, said the pro
fessor, are partly responsible for
this, the wannest, yes even the hot
test January in 50 years.
Prof. Taylor is in charge of cli

that, if the groundhog emerging
from his hole at noon on February
2 sees hjs shadow, then the weather
will be bad for a period of six
weeks. If It is a cloudy day and he
does not see his shadow, Spring has
arrived.
There isn’t any doubt but what
the woodchuck saw his shadow at
noon today.
Even before the origin of the
groundhog legend a big portion the
world believed that the weathpr of
Candlemas Day, February 2. had
something to do with the weather
just ahead. The Old World predic
tion In rhyme said:
"If Candlemas Day be lair and
clear,
"There'11 be two winters in the
year
“If Candlemas Day be wet and
foul.
“The half o’ winter gone at Yule.”
Even the old Romans knew this
day. Their prophecies were made
amidst the flickers of candles light
ed in honor of the Goddess Februa.
mother of Mars.
Over all Europe, fine weather on
this day omened unseasonably cold
days and crop failures. Foul weath

spring.
