Under Bond Over
Burning Of House
Two inspectors of the state inrur
Huce department visited Shelby yes
terday and placed A. T. Bridges,
formerly of the Boiling Springs sec
tion, under a bond of $1,000 in con
nection with the burning in July
last year of the residence in which
he lived near Boiling Springs. The
bond calls for a hearing Thursday
morning in county court.
According to the charges as filed
by W. A Scott, one of the Insur
ance department Inspectors, It is al
leged that the residence, property of
B. P. Jolley, might have been of in
cendiary origin because of insured
furniture. The furnishings of the
home were insured, it is alleged, for
$1,000 or $1,500.
Two Mills Hers Join In Move
To Eliminate Night Work For
Women A ndMinors; Program
Shelby, Ella Mills
Make Change.
83 Percent Of Mills In Country
Agree To Change. Difficult
To Do.
It was learned here today
that one Shelby textile plant
has already eliminated night
work for women and another
plant is making the change as
rapidly as is possible.
This week, according to press dis
patches, 83 percent of the textile
mills in the United States had
agreed to conform to the Cotton
Textile Institute’s plan for elimina
tion of night work for women and
Already Changed.
Tlie local .plant which this week
made the complete change was the
Shelby Cotton mills, one of the
largest plants in the section. The
officials of the mill have gradual
ly been working to that end for
three or four months, it being a dif
ficult task to remove all the wom
en working on the night shift to a
day shift without a general re-ad
justment, of shifts and working
plans. But Monday night of this
week no woman worked in the mill.
The majority of the women who
have been working at night, it is
understood, have been transferred
to day shifts, while others are on
part time work.
The other plant which is making
the change is the Ella mill of the
Consolidated Textile Corporation. A
gradual change removing women
from night shift", to other shifts has j
been underway there for some time;
and will continue until there are
no women, it Is said, on the night
Few’ if any, minors work on night
shifts in the textile plants of this
section, it is said.
The Belmont mill was listed in the
daily piers as one which had signed
l he Cotton Textile Institute's plan,
but no change has yet been made at
the plant.
Officials of the Shelby Cotton
mills in, stating teat night work for
women had been eliminated at their
plant added that it was a voluntary’
effort on the part of the mill as it
had not signed the Institute roll.

Considerable Snow Herr Last Ni"hl
Mixed With Kain. Sunshii.%
Melts It.
The groundhog, he who has
been maligned and scoffed at as
a poor weather prophet, crawl
ed from his winter lair In the
early morning hours today,
gleefully tossed several snow
balls at his critics, then ras
routed to his lair again by the
rays of a springtime sun.
It was the second real groundhog
j day since the woodchuck made his
j erroneous prophecy a month ago.
Rain set in in this section early
last, night and before midnight
changed to snow. The snowfall was
heavy for a period but due to the
rain-dampened ground and the
warm atmosphere only a light
blanket of snow remained this
morning. A warm sun early in the
day was rapidly eliminating all trac
es of a March snow that slipped in
and surprised scores of citizens who
retired early last night.
There was a slight flurry of snow
about noontime today.
