County Fanners
Get Hail Loans
Farm Agent Notified Th%t Cleveland
Is Eligible For Drought
It w»s announced today by Coun
ty Agent A. W. Shoffner that Cleve
land county farmers are eligible to
receive loans from the government
drought relief fund.
It is pointed out, however, that
the loans to the farmers of this
county will not be based on drougnt,
damage. The drought hurt the
farmers of Cleveland considerably
but not enough in the opinion of
the relief committee to entitle farm
ers to secure loans from the fund
on that basis.
The only loans in this county will
be based upon hail damage, that
item coming under the division of
the drought fund devoted to storm
stricken areas.
No especial quota has been set for
the county and Agent Shoffner
urges that farmers who wish to
borrow from the fund on the hail
damage bar Is make their applica
tions at once before the two mil
lion dollar quota for the two Caro- j
Unas, Georgia and Florida is ex
hausted. The interest rate will be
five percent and the government!
win require a first lien on the crop.
Applications may be secured from
Mr. Shoffner, from Wm. Lirieberger
at the Union Trust company, from I
George Blanton at the First Nation
al bank, or from Tom Cornwell or
O. C. Dixon. Messrs. Blanton
Cornwell and Dixon eompore the
loan committee for the county.
The loans are available only fori
the purchase of seed, fertilizer, feed (
and fuel. The maximum basis is ap
proximately $2 pet; acre for seed and
$5 per acre for fertilizer.
The farm agent has also been no
tified by the seed loan division of j
the department of agriculture at,
Columbia that farmers cannot se-1
cure loans for the 1931 crops until
they pay what they may already owe
the seed loan office.

Monroe McDonald, well known
farmer who lives three miles south

fully examined by an expert. Two
experienced gold miners looked over
the rocks, from which he found a
large vein and pronounced It an ex
cellent prospect for gold. Specimens
of the mineral thought to contain
gold are being sent to the state geo

163 Criminal Casss On Docket
For Superior Court Term Here
Next Week; Warlick To Preside
Only Murder Cases Are Those Carried Over
From Formejr Terms. Y. L. McCardwell
Banking Charge May Come Up.
The spring term of Superior court will convene here
Monday morning with two of the youngest court officials in
the State, Judge Wilson Warlick, of Newton, and Solicitor
Spurgeon Spurling, of Lenoir, in charge. At the office of
Court Clerk A. M. Hamrick it was stated today that 163
criminal cases are booked for trial the first week.
The second week of the term la
scheduled to be given over to the
civil calendar which is very congest
No New Big Cases.
No new cases of major importance
are among the 163 hearings booked
on the criminal docket, perhaps the
most Important being the false en
try charges against Lem Patterson,
former employe of the Ella Mill, a
branch of the Consolidated Textile
J corporation.
Two or three killing cases, how
; ever, are on the docket, being con
tinued at the last term. These will
■ likely include the charges against a
| white man of the Earl section In
.connection with the shooting in a
cornfield of a negro man, and the
| trial of a Gaffney young man charg
ed with striking with his auto and
fatally injuring an aged Mooresboro

! There is a possibility, too, it is
■ said that charges against Y. L. Mc
i Cardwell, former cashier of the
Mooresboro bank, in connection with
! business transactions of the closed
bank may also come up at this
The total of 163 cases on the crira
I inal docket represent a decrease
| from the more than 200 cases
docketed at the last term. The de
j crease is due In part, It is said, to
!a smaller number of appeals from
' sentences in recorder’s court

jlast fall, and among court observers
here it is believed likely that the

Hoover To Be Candidate Says
Cox, Local Republican Leader
Close Friend of National Commit
teeman Thinks Hoover
Sure Bet.
Widespread discussion of "Hoov
er prosperity” and receht declara
tion by Republican progressives that
Hoover is not the man to lead their
party will not prevent '.'resident.
Hoover from being the party’s can
didate in 1932. So thinks H. Clay
Cox, of Shelby, Republican chair
man for Cleveland county,
Mr. Cox, who not only thinks that
but expresses it as a positive belief,
should know right much of the in
side of what he is talking about for
he is a, close friend and associate of
District Attorney Chas. \ .lonas,
national committeeman for this
state and former congresrm:.n in
this district.
"Mr. Hoover," he says, "will be the
man. These Progressive Republicans
may do a lot of talking now bin
wait until 1932. The Democrats, you
see, are great winners in off-years
when they seem to be united, but
along about campaign time they di
vide up into little groups and fac
tions and fight each other. We split
up on some things in off-years, but
the nearer campaign time approach
es the closer we get together. In
1632 you’ll find us knit together and
ready to go. These progressives are
not going to take a chance of losing
their big committee jobs. If they
fight us and we win, they may have
to pay for it; if they fight us and
we lose, the Democrats will i!emo'p
them. So you see we’re not worry
ing. We might lose Norris, but no
more, and I believe we lost him in
1928—and won.”
In reply to a Joking question
from a Democrat' who desired to
know if they would use the pope
and Romanism against tire Demo
crats in 1932, Cox replied that they
would not. “We've got a new cam
paign song and we’re all -eady to
join in tjie chorus when vou n>m
inate your wet Democrat, cnd »he
tunc will be “O, Where Is My Wan

Optimistic Spirit

VarioiiK Bailmn Leaders Report
.Steady Increase. Banker
Sees Trend.
Business is on the upgrade and is
steadily recovering from the period
of depression that has been evident
for many months.
So say a general group of Shelby
business men, and business men it
is known do not say business is good
unless it is.
Steady Gain.
Statements made to The Star to
day by Shelby merchants and bank
ers all reflect a new spirit of i jtlm
ism brought about by increased
trading and general business activ
ity. Some say the activity is not up
to that of last year, but others de
clare their business to be better. All,
however, agree that the steady gain
is reassuring in that it la not the
least spasmodic.
Several Reasons.
A number of basic reasons are cit
ed for the new activity. The bonus
money being received by World war
veterans is one explanation. The
cash dividends being paid out by
local building and loan associations
Is another, while the customary
spring activity with more people at
work and inclined to a more optlm
l. tlc outlook Is the most general ex
more trading.
"Tt Is not in proportions to a pros
perity boom,” says William Lineber
iser, of the Union Trust companyt
“but here and there In nearly every
business there Is ample evidence
that things are picking up. From
the banking angle this pick-up has
been evident for two or three weeks
and the gain appears to be steady
and consistent. The outlook of the
people Is largely responsible. They
got near rock bottom, adjusted their
modes and methods of living, have
realised that after- all the business
MI® of the community is basically
*4und. end they have gone hack to
buying and trading, not recklessly
but wisely.”
J C. McNeely, proprietor of the
McNeely company, says: "A steady
gain is evident in my business aa
spring arrives. In my opinion busi
ness Is not up to that of last year
as yet but the weekly Increase in
clines one to believe that ere long
It will be.”
