City Officials Will
Slash All Salaries
New Regime Goes In
Office Today
Total Salary Cut Around $5,000 An
nually. Several Changes Will
' Be Made.
A reduction in expenses and
a general economy program in
keeping with the times were as
sured today by city officials who
were sworiteinto office to con
duct Shelby affairs for two
Those sworn In today were May
or S. A. McMurry, reelected last
month; throe former aldermen, P.
M. Washburn. John Schenck, jr.,
and Z. J. Thompson, and one new
alderman, D. W. Royster. In with
the city officials went a school
board made up of Roger Laugh
ridge, Dr. Tom Gold, J. Lawrence
Lackey, L. P. Holland, and Tliad C.
Ford.
To Cut Salaries.
“'Details have not been fully work
ed out, and will not be until our
first formal meeting tomorrow
night," Mayor McMurry said today,
"but wc have talked It over and the
city payroll will be cut down be
tween five and six thousand dollars
per year. We believe the times and
conditions demand It and the cut is
being made from the mayor down."
To Cut Force.
It was also learned by The Star
that tlfe force of employes will be
lessened by two or three. Just who
these will be it was not announced
today, pending tlie first regular ses
sion of the board Tuesday night.
Those employes who are let go will
be given. It was explained, sufficient
notice so that they may seek other
employment without being lopped
off the payroll without notice. There
is much conjecture about the city
as to who will be given notices, but
officials were keeping mum today
and will, they say, until their offic
ial action is recorded on the min
utes of the first June business meet
ing.
In furthering the economy pro
gram a department or so may be
combined from the supervision
standpoint. It was stated, however,
that proposed changes and perhano
consolidations would not decrease
general service to taxpayers.
The proposed economy program is
in keeping with new governmental
regulations as the la«t ses ion the
general assembly passecKa^lavr mak
ing local government aVvlsofy com
mission somewhat of a guardian for
municipal and county governments.
Heretofore unu-ual expenditures of
money, bond sales, and such cannot
be carried out by municipalities
without permission of the central
commission.
News of the cut of fire thousand
dollars in the annual city payroll
has leaked out to a certain extent
and has received the commendation
of many citizens. "Business houses
and industrial firms have already
reduced salaries and wages,’* one man
said, "and new- officials taking of
fice in cities and towns In this sec
tion have also reduced their pay
rolls. The move here will meet with
general approval, or I am badly
mistaken.*’.

In addition to produce. vegeta'o.'e>
fruits, canrjed goods, garden foods
and other things, all types of articles

i will enter various types of handi
work and other products of house
hold arts. It is expected, too, that
some of the county’s finest cooking
will be exhibited for sale as a num
ber of the club women are planning
to offer cakes, pies and other deli
cacies.
Shelby women are invited to visit
the market during the day as a
stimulus to a movement which it i;
hoped will add to the convenient;
of both seller and buyer and will
make possible another source of ’n
come for farm wives.
Saturday all entrants of article;
to be sold at the market will be giv
en temporary regulations and rules.
Milk and uninspected meats cannot
be placed on the market, but chick

City Merchants Boost ‘ ‘Cotton Week”
Carolina Products Beginning Today
Visitors to Shelby stores and business houses this week
will have the opportunity of seeing cotton goods boosted and
displayed as never befOie, and what is move the majority of
articles on display will be Cax'olina made goods.
Prac.icaily all Shelby, merchants'
are cooperating on "National Cotton'
Week" and “Made In North Caro
lina Week,” beginning today. Hie
two movements are being concen
trated in one and all citizens are
urged to take advantage of the var
jlouo displays.
It is pointed out that the displays
i at local stores should be of more
than ordinary Interest in this sec
tion as Cleveland county is not only
the largest cotton-producing county
in the state but is the home of
many Industrial plants creating cot
] ton into wearing apparel.
| Several score cities and towns hi
i the state have announced that their
I mercliahts are this week pushing the
event, the aim of which is to ac
quaint the people of North Carolina
with what Is made in their state; to
Increase the sale of home-made
goods to local consumers; and. in
the long run. to bring about Indus
trial diversification.
Governor Gardner has officially
set aside June 1-6 as “Made in North
Carolina Week” by proclamation.
The same week has been designated
as "National Cotton Week” by the
Cotton Textile Institute. This lat
ter movement has the active sup
port and cooperation of the United
States departments of commerce
and agriculture. If these movements
have the fullest cooperation they
will stimulate retail busine.v, en
courage local industrial production,
and increase the consumption of raw
materials. This in turn will keep
money at home to pay additional
wages, make possible additional buy
ing and stimulate all industrial and
commercial activity.
The main purpose ol tins move
ment, however, is to have retail
merchants stock, mark and push
the sale of North Carolina-made
goods during the week. Merchants
who entered into this campaign last
year found that it was not merely
a catch phrase, but that the peop.e
were anxious to buy goods made in
the-home state. One merchant re
ported that his sales during “Made
in North Carolina Week” last year
were more than in any two montlus
except December "It is at the re
quest of some of these merchants
that the campaign is being repeated
this vear.” said Colonel HarrcLon.

Tax Sale Not
Decided; Board
. Studying List
Slay Advertise Property For SaJe In
July or Walt Until Fall. More
Us tintype.
When they adjourned for
lunch at 1 o’clock this after
noon the Cleveland county
commissioners were still unde
cided as to when they would
advertise and sell property for
unpaid taxes.
A decision In the matter will be
made today, however, it was de
clared by members of the-board.
Two Plans.
Two procedures may result. The
advertising and sale of property for
taxes has already been postponed for
a month due to general business
conditions. Today the board may de
cide to go ahead and start advertis
ing unpaid taxes oil Monday. June
8. and then' conduct the sale on
Monday, July 6. • Again the board
may consider It best to await until
early fall to handle the tax'sales.
The proposition has been giving
the commissioners considerable
thought, and they desire to talk it
over from all angles before reach
ing a final decision. Due to the reg
ular list of callers and delegations
this morning the board had very
little time in which to discus; the
tax problem before noon. It will be
given their first attention this aft
ernoon.
Much Paid.
If one large corporation would pay
its taxes, The Star learned today,
the unpaid tax total would be only
a little larger this year than it was
last year and has been for years.
This corporation is now being oper
ated by receivers who say they will;
pay the $13,000 tax debt at the ear- j
liest possible moment.
I.lstin; Time.
Saturday was the last day for
listing taxes this year but as the
work, is behind the commissioners
will likely extend the listing time
for another week or 10 days. This
move had not been made before the'
noon recess, but It is known that the
members of the board are agreed
that a short extension of time
should be given to list personal
property not yet listed. Citizens
who have not listed are urged to do
| so at once s-o that the budget may
be prepared. •

1,147 Laws Passed By Unusual Session
Of N. C. Assembly; Remarkable Meet
In Many Respect Legislature Set1
Records. Many Important
Laws In Number.
Raleigh. June l.^-THe North.
Carolina general assembly, which
adjourned ou the evening ot May
27, was. in many respects, one ot
the most remarkable sessions ever
held by a law making body In Nor h
Carolina, not only in the length ot
the session, but in the type of legis
lation and deviation from norma!
policies which it achieved.
No other session has lasted for
121 legi-lauve days, except the I8u8
G9 reconstruction period session of
148 days from which 12 days of
Christmas recess must be taken
leaving only 130 days. It establishes
a new record for length and devel
oped Into an endurance test.
No other session has tuken Iron,
the local units and vested in til
state more authority, particularly ui
the maintenance ol roads and I
schools and in the administration ci I
county, city, town and local district I
fiscal affairs. These local units gave
up authority and autdnomy to a
greater extent than ever before,
trading, in their distress much loose,
wefficiey.c and ineffective adminis
tration 7or what is expected to oe
greater' concentrated and rnuj-e ef-j
fettive handling of governmental
affairs.
No other session has token boo.1:
to tire property owners of the state
a greater measure of tax relief, tor
which real estate owners were clam
oring. All taxes were not removed,
but the operation of the highway,
the school and the local government
laws will bring a reduction of on
average of 57 cents to the property
owner, or almost half of the tax
bill in many counties.
No other session has placed upon
big business the amount of taxes
that was levied against such busi
ness by the recent general assembly,
a tax that would not have been
reached but for the Insistent de
mand for land tax relief. The bur
den has. in large measure, been
placed on more successful buaine s,
that mo.it able to pay, and, while
tppareutly more than a just si tare,
may hot be an onerous burden.
The closing day of the session
marked the passage and enactment
of several of the must important,
pieces ot legislation ot the entire1
session, chief of which were the re
venue, appropriations, machinery,
school and several others.
