“SAFER THAN STAYING
Around Our TOWN
By KENN L)1MJM.
•: S-»»-ssfcJ We’re alumt to let you In on the Inside of something.
A news article in The Star Informs that no woman has ever served
on the jury in Cleveland county. Then the article goes ahead to explain
that we've had no feminine Jurors because the commissioners have never
placed the names’of women voters on the jury list. That's not the rea
son, and, a la Chic Sale, we’ll tell you why: No woman has ever served on
a Jury in Cleveland county because very few women in the county would
be willing to sit and do all the listening while a flock of lawyers did all
the arguing. Jurors can't talk back and the women are not going to to
told what to do without saying a few things themselves.
And who blames them? (Certainly, none of us married men.)
‘A COLLEGE BOY WOULD START
SOMETHING LIKE THIS.
Just about the time this corner ran out of the commodity we vainly
refer to as Ideas along came a letter from a Duke university reader. He
Is after starting a few new'contcsts to take the place of the Miss Shelby
contest. But, boy, Just wait until you get home and the girls, who haven't
been nominated yet and still hope to, get hold of- you. Anyway, one of
his proposed contests should start something—maybe a duel or a regular
alley war. But here's the letter, do your own grading:
Several weeks ago you published a "long name" some of the
Cleveland county farmers were having trouble with, so I'd suggest
as you amble across the square some time you try this on your
piccolo, "Dihydroxydiaamldoarsenobenzol.” In case you don't rec
ognise It, It Is the old reliable "60fl.”
Now since the beauty contest Is over let’s have another that will
create some more excitement. The following should draw a small
crowd at least:
fl) What lawyer has ever won an argument at home?
<2> Who owes the biggest grocery bill in town?
13) What married man has been seen In more places -.
Well, finish It yourself for you can run faster than I.
We told Wallace Wade to save you one of those seats on the
big trip to California in 1933. However, keep your bag packed for
we might go In 1932.
Toss this in the waste basket for that Is what what we do
with The Star, after we have read It twice. What is the big Idea
of leaving "Around Our Town" out of the paper evet^ once In
awhile? Don’t you know we'have to have our vitamin A. S.
'Apple Sauce) three times per week? Do you know what "Hoover
Prosperity” means? It is the French for "patched pants." But
don't tell H. Clay Cox for lie might cut off ©ur supply of free air
about better business.
"So long, B,”
Perhaps you knew tills; we didn’t: A scientist has finally succeeded
In breeding odorless skunks.
Next, thing you know they'll invent some kind of tonic that will
make us smile when we seo a bill collector coming. Or be selling a drink
at the? soda fountains that will make us dash over to the court house and
pay our taxes—and wonder why they are not more.
WATCH HIM COME HOPPING
HOME, RAMBUN’ BlIX
T'other night a special delivery messenger left a small box on this
colyum’s front door step. The top of the box contained a number of
small air holes and beside the perforations was written: "A live horned
toad. Compliments of the Arizona desert. Ramblin’ Bill, Phoenix."
Somehow, being by nature kindhearted towards dumb brutes, ani
mals, and other dumb people, we had an Idea the poor critter needed
something to eat after the long trip from Arizona to North Carolina.
Not knowing what tidbits horned toads are fond of, we carried him into
the backyard, dumped him in the garden and tried to get the bllnklng
eycd cactus-jumper of the desert to take on a meal of chicken hash and
water. He backed away from both. <Then we ducked him In the water
and he hlppity-hopped behind a bbsh and hid. Since then he hasn’t
been seen. Maybe by now he’s back in Arizona asking Bill why he sent
him to a place where folks don’t know that a horned toad eats bugs
and insects, doesn’t know what water }s, and would rather sleep in a sand
pile than In a feather bed: in fact, will sleep nowhere else.
The next day there came a letter from Ramblin’ Bill, telling how his
young son caught the toad, and had It sent back to his dad’s native
state. The letter also Informs that the toad should be placed la a box
of sand and given a barbecue of dead flies and insects until he could get
acclimated. But the poor toad—perhaps a great grandson of the one
that slept for 50 years In the cornerstone of a Texas court house—
couldn’t be found high or low.
If he’ll only come back, we’ll be glad to get up the files and sand for
him. But we have a sneaking lclca, somehow, that we re going to wake up
some night and find that toad in bed with us, prodding our bare feet
with his horns to get even for the poor reception given him in this al
leged section of hospitality and latchstrlngs swinging on the outside.
Shelby Short*: Sheriff Allen has a fox dog he calls "Hoover,’' and he
Is said to be better at catching Reynards than his godfather was In
catching votes—In 1938 .... Grover Rollins Is getting up material on
the slaying In 1911 of Mr. and Mrs. John Dixon In upper Cleveland coun
ty for a detective magazine story .... Pete Webb, brilliant young Shelby
golfer, Is an expert pool shot and was a corking good baseball player
while he was in school .... In a Shelby boarding house, we hear, two or
three young men slipped Into the room of another young man, carried
out his face powder box, emptied the powder out, filled It with flour and
placed it back In his room. He didn't know about the change until a week
or tw’o later when he was told of the prank. That ought to be an idea
for the Eagle Roller mills. Think of an ad reading like this “Use Isaac
Shelby four after shaving to maintain that school boy complexion. Your
best girl will grumble no more about your rough face" .... Says a read
er: "That colyum mimicking McIntyre makes me think you are a country
boy who came to town and did NOT make good" .... Give us a break,
buddy. You see McIntyre has been more fortunate In that he has more
bright boys like you contributing scintillating little morsels.
NOW YOU TELL ONE,
AND YOU AND YOU
A number of years ago—we may get shot for telling this one—Mr.
John R. Dover and the late J. A. Anthony were invited to a rural Cleve
land county church to make talk*. They took with them their 14-year
old sons. Toms Dover and Graham Anthony, both of whom were typical
boys, packed with energy and unable to sit still long at a time In church
or anywhere else. While their dads were speaking the two boys had a
big time playing about outside.
After returning home Mr. Dover desired to give the boys a lesson
about their conduct. He chose this method: Sitting down he changed
his handwriting and wrote letters to himself and Mr. Anthony. In the
letters, posing as one of the members of the church where they spoke,
he informed Messrs. Dover and Anthony that while they were speaking
their two sons were cutting up outside. "You came down here and told us
how to live and bring up our children," the letter reads, "but seems as If
you could try out some of your advice on >our own children." The next
day over came Mr. and Mrs. Anthony, muchly worried about the rebuke
given them about the behavior of their boys. Mr. Dover did not tell them
any better and that he wrote the letter until several days later. The boys
were not told where the letters came from until they were 31, but there
after when they went a-visiting other churches, they went inside and
found seats. <>
