From A. M. G., a letter; "You have mighty little about the chore ties
of Shelby. Why not more?"
Difficult to say, sir Certainly It is not Intentional. Church matters,
too, offer a touchy subject. Some church people, and It is sad that It Is
so, always think, the other .denomination gets the most mention. From
the time this colyum first hit town until now, we have been accused of
belonging to everything from the Ku Klux Klan to the* Catholic church.
Actually we belong to neither—and very few things In between—yet the
day 1ms not yet come when this department can see anything In any
one's religion or denomination deserving of criticism. Every man to his
belief, and if he te satisfied and content, why Should others not be?
Those church Items we do know (others will be welcomed, though no
sarcastic shots or criticism of any church will be noticed):
Of a near score towns and cities In which we have lived or existed,
not. a one has a better church attendance or more reverence In such
things than Shelby.
Yet If everyone who should would attend church in Shelby, the audi
toriums of all the churches would have to be enlarged.
In Clyde Hoey Shelby has one of America’s greatest and most in
spiring Bible class teachers. Class close to him Clint Newton, a gentleman
through and through, unfortunate as he may have been In health.
There are nowhere In the city three more estimable gentlemen than
the three retired Methodist circuit riders, J. E. Thompson, C. E. Sherrill,
and J. W. Ingle.
Rev. John W. Buttle, still In harness, has behind him a record of
serving humanity and his Maker that surpasses. In value, the record of
many hereabouts in public life.
John R. Dover’s expressed belief in church and Sunday school has
been an iptegral factor in the mill villages which skirt Shelby.
Rev. U B. Hayes, Dr. Zeno Wall. Rev. H. N. McDlarmid, Rev. 1* L.
Jessup, Rev. R. L. Forbis, Rev. D. F. Putnam, Rev. H. E. Waldrop, Rev.
Q, P. Abernethy and other ministers about the city and Us suburbs
mean much more to the real progress of the section than they are given
More anon of the churches and church life of the city as interesting
Items connected thereto are learned.

Name' For High
Shelby, Lattlmore. FaNaton B.iya On
First Team. Polkville, Belwoud
Three Shelby players, one Fallston
player, and one Lattlmore player
are named on an All-Star Cleveland
county high school basketball quint
selected by an observer of the re
cent county tournament here in
which Shelby won the Rotary cup.
So close was the competition for
the first team that the observer
rates two players on the second All
Star quint only a fraction of a
point behind first team members.
R. Brown, Shelby guard, was rat
ed as the outstanding star of the
tournament despite the fact that his
team mate Capt. McSwain and W.
Clay, Fallston, forward, topped him
in scoring. Clay was given berth at
forward on the first team over Cal
lahan, Lattlmore loopster, only be
cause of his high scoring record.
With Lattlmore eliminated early
in the tournament members of the
Hood quint did not have as much
opportunity to exhibit their prowess
as did some of the others.
The second quint, which, the pick
er believes, could give the first out
fit a royal battle, is made up of
players from Lattlmore. Polkvllle,
Belwood, Fallston and Shelby. The
At least, the Tuly-GUbert, Kea
