A new. or rather revived, fea
ture is adding to the growing
popularity of the Cleveland
Springs Country and Golf club.
The two tennis courts have
been worked over and are now
in good condition.
More, unt^ more the Cleveland
Springs club is getting to be a fav
orite sport center. About everything
in the sport line, from checkers to
golf, is being done there—bridge,
horseshoe, tennis, golf, etc.

The club’s tournament committee
Js now planning to start a series of
invitation tournaments similar to
the one held last week at Morgan
ton. The plan is to invite 20 golfers
here on different days from Hick
ory, Gastonia, Rutherfordton, Mor
ganton, Gaffney and other neigh
boring towns. Shelby golfers will be
matched with the visitors and all
will have a neighborly, get-together
round with each other. The fine
condition of the local links now will
appeal to the visitors who are fond I
of their golf and enjoy playing now
and then -on a new course.
While the golf subject is up,
it is interesting to note that Mr.
John Schenck, sr., one of the
two Shelby men to first play the
game, is in the finals of the sec
ond flight In the annual Cleve
tand Springs tourney.

Shoresbrook club. Lyle, who has a
driving form that is beautiful,
clicked in several birdies, however,
before he was finally downed.
Shelby baseball fans should get
in behind the American Legion
junior team which has already
started a good season here. The
youngsters appear to have all man
ner of baseball ability for their
years. Shelby has had high school
champions and there is no reason
why the Legion Junior Team, il
properly supported, should not go
places. Last year the Gastonia Le
gion team won the state and divi
sion title and came close to the na
tional title. The age limit is 17
years and baseball is far better for!
youths of that age than a number
of other things they might get In-!
terested in during the afternoons.
Give the boys a hand!

Babe Carr, the Shelby light
weight, Is getting in shape for
another bout. Laid out for a time
by injuries. Babe is getting tired
of all the chatter about Jimmy
Swinson. the Carolinas light
weight champ, and he believes
he can nut him to sleep if he can
get in the ring with him again.
The mills about Shelby have fast
baseball outfits this year, and the
best angle about it is that the teams
are made up of employes and home
talent without hired players being
roped in. Th$ fans are more inter
ested in players they know and with
whom they work, particularly when
they can offer the brand of ball the
local teams have been showing,.
Last Saturday, if you noticed, four
Shelby textile hurlers turned in ex
cellently pitched games. Johnny
Putnam twirled one of those un
usual no-hit games for Ora mill
against Cramerton. Sherrill Ham
rick, for Shelby Mill, bested Kirk
sey, of Ellenboro, in a mound duel.
' Big Boy” Peters, of the Lily team
struck out 16 Newton batters, and
iSipe, hook-ball artist of the Cleve
land Cloth, dropped 14 McAdenviile
batters by the wayside. In two
games this season Sipe has whiffed
i a total of 30 batters. Don't pass tip
the chance of seeing one of these
teams play this week.

Again, according to reports. Shel-;
by may have a baseball club in a
semi-pro league. Pans at Forest
City, Gastonia, Kings Mountain,
and Spartanburg have been trying
for sometime to organize a semi
pro league for play this summer.
This week it was learned that the
strong Cleveland cloth mill will be
able to enter a club in the circuit if
the loop is formed. And the Ray
onites will give the opposition a
run for their money with two strong
hurlers, a good fielding team and
several Ruthian hitters.
