rept any school plan which callsd
for an ad valorem tax.
Although lacking the two third*

Hamilton solution under the sus
pension of the rules, they mustered
54 votes to the 38 for those who fa
vored ad valorem tax for schools.
Favors Sales Tax.
The conference committee Is di
vided three to two In favor of a
sales tax. Representatives Spence
and Connor, the present and past
chairman of the finance committee,
supported the MacLean law “In so
far as feasible” and later supported
the general sales tax. Representa
tives Allen, a "dirt farmer,” was one
of the original advocates of the Mac
bean law and favored a luxury sales
tax. Representatives Cherry and
Harris are both opponents of any
form of sales tax.
Of the senate conferees. Senators
Dunlap and Folger are supporters
of an equalizing fund for schools
and opposed to any form of sales
tax. Senator Hinsdale Is author of
the Hinsdale luxury sales tax plan,
and Senator Clark Is a supporter.
Another To Be Named.
Another house conferee is expect
ed to be named tomorrow to moke
six house members of the confer
ence and four senators.
The principal change the senate
made in the revenue bill was to sub
stitute the Orler-Folger finance plan
to provide a $10,000,000 equalizing
fund and permit a 30 cent county
ad valorem tax for schools.

Local Students
In 1931 Awards
Louise Mller. Fell* Gee, Ray Brown
And Edith Blanton Win Na
tional II. S. Honors.
Four places in the “Preliminary
Honors List” of the national high
school awards for 1931 have been
won by Shelby high school seniors.
In the American girl essay contest,
Louise Miller is one of the two stu
dents winning a place from the en
tire state of North Carolina;
In the book review contest, Felix
Gee Ls one of the seven students
from North Carolina to reach this
position.
In the editorial contest, Shelby
took two of the three places given
in this state, these falling to Ray
Brown and Edith Blanton.
Final results from these contests
will be announced about the middle
of May. While the local school may
receive no more definite honor
than to have been placed in the pre
liminary list, it is gratifying to know
that they reached this point in a
year when the authorities have an
nounced that “Not only were the
manuscripts this year better pre
pared and more pleasing in appear
ance, but also—what ls hardly more
important—they showed noticeable
better workmanship, Intrinsically." j
These awards are conducted annual
ly by the American Education Press,
publishers of a number of school
periodicals, and are jointly sponsor
ed this year by such organizations
as the Boy Scouts of America and
the Girl Scouts, as well as leading
standard magazines, including the
Atlantic and Scribner’s. The Judges
are among the most distinguished
literary editors of these magazines.
Every high school student in public
or private schools may contest.
The awards originated in the an
nual student-written contests con

ducted by Current Literature several
years ago; but other contests have
been combined with these until the
present awards have been called
"The Literary Olympics”' of the high
schools of America.
The purpose of the awards Is to
provide suitable recognition for the
best creative literary work of boys
and girls in high schools, and pro
vide an incentive for them to at
tempt to become more skilful along
literary lines.
The scope of the awards cannot
be grasped in an instant. Tire total
value of the prizes is estimated at
$8,000, and includes medals, books,
loving cups, and cash, besides bronze
plaques and permanent trophies.
To win one of the awards 1s to
bring laurels both to your school
and to your city. While the present
preliminary list merely constitutes
the “top cream” of the tens of
thousands manuscripts sent in by
March 15, the close of the present
contest, and does not In any way
assure Shelby of any definite award,
it has nevertheless placed the local
high school in an enviable position,
and shows that it has students who
rank with Winston-Salem, High
Point, Asheville, and Wilson, the
other principal towns receiving any
mention from North Carolina.
In the eighteen branches of the
contest, the senior class submitted
papers in six o{ these, and won
