College Head
Dr. Frazier Talks
Men Of Church
President of Queens -Cliieora College
Upholds Christian Education
Here.
Speaking before the men of the
Presbyterian church in their regu
lar monthly meeting last night, Dr.
W, H. Frazer, president of Queens
Chicora college, Charlotte, stressed
the importance of Christian educa
tion In the lives of young people as
the means of fitting them into a
harmonious social life, as a means
of preserving proper economic re
lations and as a means of promoting
national peace and harmony.
Fifty or more men of tiie Presby
terian church were present and they
were served a bountiful meal by the
ladles of the church. M. H. Ran
dolph, president of the men's broth
erhood, had charge of the program
and conducted the devotional.
Will Check Crime.
“Education is a big word and all1
progress is measured by its terms,
but education may be harmful or it
may be hurtful,’ said Dr. Frazer. Here
he pointed out that educated men
were recently involved in a business
scandal, that educated men appear
ed for them in the courts of justice,.
but that did not mean that educa
tion was a failure. Christian educa
tion as a Christian ideal and so
shapes the life of man that it will
be harmonious with the social or
der and obedient and subservient to
the will of god. Education alone is
not the thing which makes for pro-1
gress—it must be the light kind. I
Knowledge will not drive back crime,'
but It will check crime,” he con
tinued.
“Christian education can only
come through a Christian college
which holds the word of God before
men. Unless they do that, we will
have a low order of society and dis
cord in human relations," said he.
Value In Business.
Then Dr. Frazer pointed out the
value of a Christian education in
economic relations, declaring that it
enables men and women to differ

what it teaches the rights of others,

Jim Lowery In
Limelight Now
Photos Sent Here Of Negro Thought
To Be Killer Of Shelby
Chief.
Shelby’s oldest man-hunt is be
ing talked again as local citizens
belief that there is a possibility of
locating Jim Lowery in Georgia.
Almost 31 years ago a negro. Jim
Lowery by name, shot and killed
Police Chief Shelton Jones of Shel
by. He escaped and has never been
caught, but” scores of times men
thought to be Lowery have been
caught and investigated.
A month or twn ago Police Chief
Poston and, Sheriff Allen received
a message from Oabbettville, Geor
gia. man stating that he believed
an aged negro working on the gang
there was none other than Lowery.
Officers investigated it some, but due
to so many fruitless chases In the
past did nothing about it.
This week there came another let
ter from the Georgia man. The
negro's time on the gang there will
be out April 24, and the man urged
that someone who knew Jim Low
ery in the old days here go to
Georgia and see him before that
time. “He told another negro on the
gang, who is now' gone, that he was
wanted in Shelby for killing a po
liceman,” the letter informed. With
the letter came two clear photo
graphs ot the negro there, both
showing him in his convict stripes.
It is the picture of a negro man
well along in years, and older citi
here, whites and blacks, say that
there is some resemblance to Low
ery, None will be certain, however,
since 30 years have elapsed since
they saw Lowery. There is enough
resemblance, though, to cause num
erous older citizens to think some
investigation should be made.
It is likely now that some local
I officer and a citizen who remem
bers Lcnvery well will go to Georgia
I within the next few days.
Under $1,000 Bond
To High Court
Kings Mountain Woman Slips Out.
Gets Neighbor To Capture
Negro.
George Gordon, negro, is in the
county Jail under a $1,000 bond on a
charge of breaking and entering a

alleged incident took place about 3
o'clock yesterday morning.
The home entered was that of
Mrs. Jesse Barrett, in north Kings
Mountain. According to witnesses in
county court yesterday, where Gor
don was bound over, the two women
first knew that someone was in the
house when they heard a trunk be
ing moved. One of the women slip
ped out a door, called In Toney All
man. a neighbor, who held the negro
at bay with a shotgun until Police
man Hicks arrived.
The charge against Gordon at the
preliminary hearing was that of
breaking and entering. but It Is
likely, officers say, that It may be
first degree burglary when it reaches
superior court.
Gordon contended that he was
under the Influence of a whiskey
substitute and did not know what
he was doing. He remembered noth
ing, he said, after leaving another
colored man's house until he tfas in
Jail. His actions when noticed In the
house Indicated, It Is said, that he
was not entirely aware of what he
was doing.
Another Charge.
The other man bound over by
Judge Maurice Weathers on a
breaking and entering charge yes
terday was Bill Poteet, white. It is
alleged by the complaining wit
nesses that he stole $45 from the
home of Robert Bradshaw on West
Marlon street Tuesday. Poteet was
arrested Wednesday In Mt. Holly
and brought back here by Deputy
Ed Dixon. He denied the charge and
his bond was set at $200.

Edwards Would Save Ballot Boxes In
Bailey-Pritchard Race For Contest
Due to Late Contest Many Boses
Of Ballots Already Thrown
Away.
Raleigh. April 10.—Representative
Henry B. Edwards, of Cleveland
county, introduced a bill in legisla
ture this week, for the election laws
| committee, recommending “the pre
servation, so far as possible at this
late stage,” of the ballot boxes used
in the Bailey-Pritchard election.
I The resolution was submitted to
the house as a substitute for the
McBee-Butler resolution, which call
ed for the impounding of the ballot
boxes, and turning them over to
United States senate committee,
which is investigating the election
in which Joslah W. Bailey, the.Dem
ocratic candidate, defeated George
M. Pritchard, the Republican can
didate for United States senator.
The lengthy report of the elec
tion laws committee goes fully into
! the circumstances of the contest,
'and emphasizes the fact that it was
! brought long after the time- for
such contests under North Carolina
law.
In the committee meeting, Repre
sentative Dosher of New Hanovei
bitterly attacked the Republican
party for poor sportsmanship in
bringing the contest.
The resolution reported out states
that Bailey received 324,393 votes
and Pritchard 210,761 votes, and
that “no complaint was made, no
protest was filed, and no question ol
the honesty of the election was
raised,” when these returns were
certified ta the senate by the state
board of elections. The Pritchard
contest was filed on March 4, 1931,
four months after election, and
nearly three months after Bailey’s
credentials were filed in the senate.
"We do recommend in so far as
practicable at this late stage, in view
of this contest, that steps be taken
to safeguard the ballots regular and
absentee and the ballot books used
In the election for United States
senator, and that the same together

DePriest Says
SouthemG.O.P.
Not For Hoover
Rank And File of Republicans
Against Him Says Former
leader Here,
“That is a lot of bunk some of
the Republican leaders are
handing out when they say that
the Republicans of the South
will be solidly united behind
Hoover for the Republican nom
ination in 1932,” declares George
DePriest, of Shelby, former post
master and Republican official
in party politics in Cleveland
county.
Mr. DePriest made that state
ment yesterday after a trip through
South Carolina, Georgia and Ala
bama.
"On my trip,” the Shelby mail
said, “I found that Postmaster Gen
eral Brown must have been misin
formed when he returned to Wash
ington after a trip through the
south and declared that President
Hoover has the full Republican
party of the south behind him.
Saw Wrong Ones.
“Mr. Brown was sincere perhaps
In his statement, but the trouble Is
that he didn’t see the right Repub
licans in the south. The people he
visited were postmasters and other
federal job holders. Of course they
say Mr. Hoover is the whole f'iow
because they received their jobs
from him. But Mr. Brown certainly
heard very little vociferous applause
from the rank and file of the Re
publican party in the South. If it
were left for all Republicans In the
south to vote on the nomination in
stead of letting a few office-holders
pick the slate, the southern delega
tion to the next Republican conven
tion would not be instructed for Mr.
Hoover. I’ve talked with enough of
them to know that.
May Back Him.
"If the average Republican de
sires a say so as to delegates, the
only way for them to have it is to
send no office-holders to the state
conventions. Of course if postmas
ters and other men who hold office
under Mr. Hoover control the state
conventions, they will be for Hoo
ver. But if the people in the Repub
lican party in the south who are
against Mr. Hoover demand their
rights. Mr. Hoover will not be the
nominee and if he is there may be
another 1912.”
In his trip through the three
states Mr. DePriest says he soon
learned that the average Republi
can as well as the average Demo
crat has enough of Hoover to do for
a lifetime.
Officials who are saying that Mr.
Hoover is a certainty in 1932 have
their eyes on their Jobs, it was in
sinuated by the former Republican
Congressman Jonas before the last
chairman of the county. “I told
Congressman Jonas before the last
election that his support of Hoover
would defeat him, and I guess he
knows it now. Other Republican
leaders should be realizing the same
thing now.”
Mr. DePriest did not say just what
Republican is his favorite for the
presidential nomination, but it is
known that he considers Senator
Dwight Morrow one of the ablest
men in the party.

Luxury Tax Is
Defeated; Seek
Income Plan
Deadlock Possible
In Assembly
Senate Beat* Tax 26 To 24. Otter
Offers New Plan Of Rais
ing Revenue.
Raleigh, April 10—After eight
hours of debate the senate of North
Carolina Wednesday refused to place
the Hinsdale "luxury" sales tax in
the hiennlal revenue bill.
Elimination of the Day general
ales tax Tuesday and refusal to
adopt the Hinsdale plan 26 to 24
left the house members asking one
question, “Where do we go from
here?"
The general assembly paired the
MacLean school law In Its early days
and It Is conceded some form of
sales tax to raise *9,000 000 must be
enacted If the act Is to be carried
out.
The house first refused the Hins
dale plan and then passed the Day
measure, which would levy one per
cent on gross sales of retail mer
chants, and sent the bill to the sen
ate. It was conceded that the house
would adopt the Hinsdale plan If
the senate refused the Day Idea.
Seek New Source.
Raleigh. April 10.—Sales lax op
ponents in the senate, so far suc
cessful In their fight to keep a sales
tax out of the biennial revenue bill
Thursday sought to start an offen
sive to raise $3,500,000 In new reve
nue for a $10,000,000 equalization
fund. ,
Immediately after the senate re
solved itself into a committee of the
whole to consider the revenue bill,
Senator Grier of Iredell, leader of
the anti-sales faction, sought to ex
plain a series of amendments he
proposed to offer to a dozen or more
sections of the revenue bill.
The Grier amendments are esti
mated by their author to net $3,
500.000 annually, this amount to be
added to the $6,500,000 already pro
vided for in the revenue bill for
schools—establishing a $10,000,000
equalization fund.
Deadlock Possible.
Adoption of the Grier amendments
would probably result in a dead
lock between that body and the
house—where the forces are strong
for no compromise on the $19,500,000
for schools.
Sales tax proponents in the sen
ate, however, are expected to make
another fight to have the senate
adopt either the Day plan or the
Hinsdale plan, either of which
would be now acceptance to the
school forces in the house.
Senator Grier proposes to raise
the rate on individual income taxes,
to Increase franchise taxes on rail
roads, power companies, telephone
companies, public service companies,
and domestic and foretgn corpora
tions. Corporation income taxes also
would be increased, and an indivi
dual income tax would be levied on
dividends from foreign stocks. A
small merchants’ tax would be Im
posed also.
Income Tax Increase.
The income tax rate would be In
creased to the constitutional limit of
six per cent, ranging from two per
cent on salaries over the amount
legally exempted, up to $2,000 to six
per cent on salaries in excess of
$10,000 a year.

advanced medicine and surgery. “Yet
with all that the development of
science has done for these avenues

With Women, Cripples, Selling It,
Whiskey Business Is On “Last Legs”
Webb Lashes Men Who Get Weak
And Poor To Sell Their
Wares.
Charlotte, April 10.—Whisky is on
its last legs when those who han
dle it have to resort to the use of
women, cripples and boys to act as
their agents just because there is a
general impression that a Judge or a
court will not be as hard on such
folks. Judge E. Yates Webb declar
ed from the United States district
court bench following the trial of a
number of whiskey cases through
the term that opened Monday.
"It would seem from our court
here this week that the only per
sons that whisky dealers can get to
handle their goods any more are
boys who don't know any better and
negro women who have so many
babies that they are thought to be
Immune to a prison sentence.”
The judge fixed his gaze on the
courtroom audience and in no un
certain terms he described this class
of whisky dealers who ts "hidin?
behind a fence of negro women,
cripples and boys.”
"There is another class of men
that hide behind the skirts of their
wives," he added. “In spite of the
fact that women vote I believe they
are still more or less under the in
fluence of their husbands. In many
cases they are made to sell whisky
because of a feeling that the penalty
may not be so severe on them.”
After an old offender—although a
young man—came Into the court on
whisky charges, despite the fact that
he had served considerable "time”
before. Judge Webb pointed him out
as type of law violator that the gov
ernment will some day send to a
special Institution for treatment
rather than to prison.
"We will eventually send such
men to a place to correct thetr
mental attitude rather than to pun
ish them. In most cases they are
not so bad at heart but they Just
rtidn’t have any more sense than to:
tollow the course that they are tak
ing.”

Hancock Gives

Young Congressman Says A bid
I.eader Came Along At Proper
Time.
"It was exceedingly fortunate lof
North Carolina-that a man of Max
Gardner’s unusual ability, excellent
judgment, and square ideals canto
along to be governor just when he
did,” declared Congressman Frank:
Hancock, ef Oxford, In Shelby ye*,
terday.
Congressman Hancock and his
‘family were guests of Mr. Hart
cock's school chum. Wyeth Royster.
The Oxford man although one of
the youngest representatives in
Washington is recognised as an aole
leader and was outstanding lit
North Carolina for years prior to his
election last fall to represent tha
Fifth district.
“I’ve known Governor Gardner
for years and have recognized hid
ability,” he said, “but only in the
last year have I comprehended what
a super statesman he is. He -vent
Into office at one of the most criti
cal periods In the history of the
State and he has faced and Is fac
ing some of the most trying prob
lems a North Carolina governor lias
ever known. His method of meeting
these crises is admirable, for it has
taken and is taking more than
brains, experience in governmental
matters and diplomacy; it is also
taking courage and sincerity. The
human race, unfortunately, has a
habit of failing to express proper
appreciation of a leader’s ability
until he has been dead for about 30
years, but it doesn't take a seer to
know that history will record Gov
ernor Gardner a place as on« of
the State’s greatest leaders.”
