Game On Today
Shelby Playing Bessemer City Here
In First Championship
The first game in the state Cham*
plonship series In class B Is being
played In Shelby today with the
local team opposing Bessemer City.
Forest (ity Good.
Should Shelby win today the lo
cals will play Forest City here next
Friday in the second game of the
series which will decide the group
championship. If Bessemer City
wins today Bessemer and Forest
City will play at Forest City next
Friday. Scores of games played so
far this season Indicate that Foreet
City has one of the strongest trams
In the state and will make a hard
fight for the championship which
Shelby won last year, A favorite
prediction Is that the winner of the
championship in this group, which
will likely be Forest City or Shelby
with Forest City holding the odds,
will represent the west in the title
game at Chapel Hill. Forest City has
two victories over Shelby this sea
son, but If the local team wins to
day. the Shelby players hope for an
upset In the next contest.

cumstances surrounding the case
The coroner's Jury returned a ver
dict late this afternoon that Low

The autopsy revealed the fetal
wound to have been just under the
left, arm pit. It had the appearance
of having been inflicted by a long
sharp knife. Tire victim s sweater
was cut where It went In, se/eral
ribs broken, and another woun:i ap

left the home of Mr. and Mrs.
George ..Hollar, near Bridgeport
about 8 o'clock last night, presum
ably to return to his sister’s home,
