Towner, Colo., May 5.—Bryan
Untiedt was back in the wide open
■paces tonight. The juvenile hero,
credited with saving several lives in
the school bus tragedy near here in
the March blizzard, came back
from his visit to President Hoover
just in time to help his mother with
the weekly washing and to assist his
father, H. A. Cntledt, in feeding the
pigs. The youth’s “store clothes”
were put aside and Bryan got into
the faded, baggy overalls he wears
to do the farm chores.
Solicitor Not
Named;Board
To Meet Again
Special Session Will Also Decide
> About Date For Advertising
Unpaid Taxes.
A called meeting of the Cleveland
county commissioners will be held
the latter part of the week to take
up several important matters not
disposed of by the board at the reg
ular session Monday. Chairman A.
E. Cline stated today that lie did not
know whether the meeting would be
held Thursday or Friday.
At this meeting the commissioners
are expected to appoint a solicitor
for county recorder's court, r.n of -
fice which has been V3runt since the
death of J. Chnt Newton; and, alio,
they may deo.^e whether or not the
advertising and sale oi property for
unpaid taxes will be postponed until
fall with delinquent 'taxpayers pay
ing interest on unpaid taxes un
til that time! The matter cf setting
a time for revaluation cf
is also expected to be discussed.
There is much interest in antici
pated action about the sale cf prop
erty for'taxes. The legislature lias
left the matter to the discretion of
the commissioners in the various
counties. More than five-sixths of
the total 1930 levy In this county
has been paid and as yet the com
missioners are undecided whether
they will grant additional time for
the payment of the remaining one
sixth. A deterring factor in post
ponement is that the money is need
ed now to meet current expenses.
List Is Ready.
"The sheriff,” Chairman Cline
said today, "has already turned the
delinquent list over to the board as
required by law. It is being he’d un
til the special meeting of the beard
this week, but in the meantime a
number of people are paying up ar.d
having their names removed.”
Unless advertising is postponed
the delinquent list is scheduled to
be published the latter part of tills
week!

McMurry Is Mayor
In Sweeping Victory
Gets A Little More Than Two Thirds Of Vote
Cast. Washburn, Royster, Schenck And
Thompson Elected To City Board. Total
Of 1,662 Votes Cast.
Thu ‘‘ins” arc in again. In Shelby’s biennial election
Monday Mayor S. A. McMurry was returned to office with a
lead of 738 votes over his opponent, W. N. Dorsey, former
mayor. Returned to office with Mayor McMurry were the
three members of the old city board who sought reelection.
A total or i,bbJ voles were cast
during the day, a number somewhat
less than had been anticipated.
How They Voted.
Mayor McMurry received a little
more than two-thirds of the 1,636
Votes cast for mayor, or exactly 2.G
Votes for each Vote received by Mr,
Dorsey.
The official vote, as announced
yesterday by Frank H. Kendall, reg
istrar, .was as follows:
For mayor—S. A. McMurry 1,187;
W. N. Dorsey 449,
For alderman, ward one—P. M.
Washburn 973; J. F. Ledford 559.
For alderman, ward two—D. W.
Royster 974; Robert D. Crowder
53C.
For Alderman, ward three—John
F. Schenck, jr„ 1,448, tUncontest
ed.) '
For alderman, ward four—Z. J.
Thompson 1,055; B. M. Jarrett 504.
School Board Vote.
The five announced candidates
for the school board were unoppos
ed. Dr. Tom Gold, chairman of the
present board, led the vote, which
follows:
T. B. Gold 81 7, Roger M. Laugh
ridge 739, J. Lawrence Lackey 772,
L. P. Holland 737, Thad C. Ford
754.
Mr. Laugliridge represents ward
one on the board. Dr. Gold repre
sents ward two, Mr. Lackey ward
three, Mr. Holland ward four, and
Mr. Ford is member-at-large.
The highest vote received in a
contested race was that given Mayor
McMurry with Alderman Thomp
son’s vote ranking second. Mr.
Crowder, candidate for alderman in
ward two, received the highest vote
of any defeated candidate.
Majorities.
The McMurry majority was 738.
the Washburn majority 413, the
Royster majority 378, and the
Thompson majority 551.
An interesting angle to Monday’s
voting w;as that the totals were
very little different in the mayor’s
race from that given McMurry and
Dorsey, who were opposing candi
dates in 1929. McMurry’s vote of 1,
187 yesterday was 187 more than
the 1,000 he received in 1929, while
Dorsey's vote of 449 was ten less
than the 459 in 1929. A third can
didate, Enos L, Beam, in 1929 re
ceived 253 votes. A total of 1,719
votes were cast in 1929.

Need For More
Boxes-To Speed
Voting In City
Voters Forced To
Get In Line
More People, It Is Claimed, Would
Have Voted Monday Except
For Jam.
Shelby, now in the 10,000 class,
has grown to the point where it Is
liiglily inconvenient to have only
one ballot box and voting booth lor
city elections.
That is the opinion expressed by
scores of voters after witnessing the
jam at the court house here Mon
day where voters for a major por
tion of the day had to form In line
to await their turn at the marking
booths.
Much Delay.
At times tire waiting line ran all
the way through the court house
lobby and several observers say that
a number of women returned home
and did not vote rather thar • tand
in line to do so. Men who had only
a short time off from their work
also would not wait. Just how many
people did not vote because of the
delay is not known, but estimates
range from 75 to 100.
Voted Rapidly.
The waiting line and delay did
not result from the method in Which
the officials at the one voting box
handled the voters. The voters as
they entered the room were voted
rapidly and In an orderly manner,
but the trouble was that with only
one box and only three marking
booths Just so many voters and no
more could be votyd in an hour's
time. The result was that the busy
portion of the day saw scores of
voters waiting more or "less Impa
tiently for their turn.
Need Four Bo\es.
Those who advocate more voting
boxes before another election say
that there should be one for each
ward. This, of course, would require
a new registration by wards so that
a proper check might be kept upon
the votes as cast by referring to the
poll book. Tire mere placing of two
or three more boxes at scattered
points about the city would neces
sitate a full poll book for each box
and In that manner voters could
vote at more than one box.
With a voting booth for each
ward no voter would have to wait
more than a minute or two to vote
and the entire arrangement would
be considerably more convenient,
say citizens who have discussed ad
ditional boxes since the Monday
Jam.
Just what may be done about
bringing on a r.ew registration and
adding three more boxes before an
other election is not known, but
prevailing sentiment now favors
such a change. Tire new registration
by wards would serve for 10 or 15
years with the exception of new
voters placed on each year as is
customary.

Governor Supports Principles Of
MacLean Law; Urges Assembly
To Unite And Pass Revenue Bill
Senate Defeats
Luxury Measure
Again Votes Down Compromise Re
venue Bill By One Vote.
McSwaln Plain.
Raleigh, May 6.—With toe so
called luxury tax method of sup
porting stato schools appearing cer
tain of passage the senate defeated
the measure foe the fourth time
early Tuesday-morning, by a vote
of 25 to 24, thus sending toe de
feated proposal back to the joint
committee.
Introduction of a resolution to in
struct the senate conferees on toe
revenue bill to vote for the Grler
Folger equalization plan of financ
ing schools, by Senator Peyton Mc
Swain, constituted the only sally
made by either of the two factions
in the senate yesterday. Senator
McSwain's resolution came near the
fag end of the session and upon his
own motion went to the committee
on finance.
This committee meets this morn
ing and it was stated by Mr. Me
Swain that he hopes to get action at
that time. His failure to put it upon
its immediate passage yesterday is
believed to be for the reason that
the ad valorem-equalization bloc,
although most of the time having
the majority on its side had never
yet mustered the necessary two
thirds to put a resolution upon im
mediate passage.
Chief Poston Gets
Big Check Writer
After Speedy Chase
Stubbs Man Gave Shelby Auto Deal
er $400 Worthless Check, Is
Charge.
After a 10-mile autouioUIn
race at high speed last night
Police Chief McBride Poston, of
Shelby, caught J. J, I vans, of
the Buffalo mill village at
Stubbs', and brought him to Jail
here on the charge of writing a
worthless check for $400.
The chase began at the Buffalo
creek bridge on Highway 20, between
Shelby and Kings Mountain, and
wound up at 11:30 last night at a
Kings Mountain mill village
Evans, said by Chief Poston to be
drinking when caught, will be given
a hearing on the check charge and
the drinking charge in county court
Thursday morning.
Pulled For Chief.
D. H. Cline, Shelby auto dealer, to
whom Evans gave the $400 cheek ns
an automobile payment the last
week in April, was riding with the
police officer in the chase and
found himself pulling for on? car
sold by him to catch another car ot
the same make. Harry Gatlimore
accompanied the chief and Cline.
The check was written on the
First National bank at Gastonia and
was returned. Evans told Chief Ta
ton last night, It is said, that he
wrote the check on the wrong bank,
intending to write it on a Charlotte
bank. Evans was so befuddled, how
ever, Chief Poston believed that he
did not know just what lie was say

Gardner Appear!* Before .lofnl Ses
sion With Unexpected Plea.
For Action.
Raleigh, May (>.—Governor O. Max
Oardner unexpectedly last night
asked the general assembly to "take
a position of acceptance and sup
port of tho principle of the Mac
I.ean bill”
Tho governor, an ardent oppon
ent of any form of sales tax, in a
special message which he delivered
personally to the two houses of the
assembly, asked the legislators to
adopt the principle of the Mac-Lean1
law but to realize that "It will be
necessary next year, 1931-32, to
levy some ad valorem tax for the
support of the current expense bud
gets of the six months' school term
in every county in North Carolina.”
Under the MacLean law, enacted
by the assembly in the first weeks
of its record-breaking session, full
state support of the six months'
school without an ad valorem tax
is called for.
Formerly Opposed Plan
In a special message to the gen
eral assembly March 24, Governor
Gardner expressed opposition to
any form of sales tax, and It was
conceded by proponents and oppon
ents of the MacLean law that some
form of sales tax was necessary to
provide the money for the opera
tion of the schools. It was generally
understood after the special mes
sage of March 24 that the governor
opposed the MacLean law.
Appealing to tho assembly for
"the needs of the state and the wel
fare of our people,” the governor
told tho members “the time lias
come and the hour has struck that
demand that our conflicting views
bo reconciled into legislative ac
tion."
Asking legislators for “a recon
ciliation of these conflicts” which
have marked the assembly’s session,
Governor Gardner urged the legis
lators to consider “the welfare of
the whole people” of the state.
As the governor declared himself
for the principle of the MacLean
law, the only applause which Inter
rupted his address was hearfl.

Second Wreck Victim Dies; Boy
Lives, Unconscious For Ten Days
Dora Dogwood, Aged Colored Wom
an Dies And Her Grandson
Still Unconscious.
Dora Dogwood, aged colored wom
an, died in the Shelby hospital this
moraiqg at 7:30 o'clock from injur
ies received ten days ago when the
car in which she was riding vas
struck on Highway No. 20 at the
county fair grounds. Her daughter,
Fuschia Dogwood, who was driving
the car occupied by five members of
the family, died last Saturday
morning from a skull injury and
multiple fracture of the lower Jaw.
Unconscious Ten Days
Dora’s twelve year old grand-son,
George Turner, a step-child of
Berry Miutz, a thrifty farmer of the
Earl community remains In an un
conscious condition and has been
so for ten days. He was one of the
three injured in the car and ap
parently received the worst injury
in a skull fracture which depress
ed the bone on the brain. The
Turner boy, has not spoken and lies
in a calm stupor all the time. His
general condition is rather favor
able and the surgeons still hold out
hope for his recovery. ■:*
The aged victim, Dora Dogwood,
who died this morning was appar
ently hurt the least of the three in
jured ones. She had a broken shoul
der and severe bruises and shock.
On account of her advanced age It
was hard for her to withstand the
shock and injuries. Yesterday, there
was some indication that pneumon

not attributed as the cause of her
death.
Jake Dogwood, husband of Dora
and father of Fuschia, both deceas

Point community about four miles
east of Shelby.
The car which struck the Dog
wood car, was driven by Mr. C. R.
