"Sour milk must be convened in
to butter or used in other ways not
so profitable to dairymen when it
has been allowed to sour,” says John
A Arey .dairy extension specialist at
State college. “The milk as drawn
from the cow is clean. Much of the
contamination comes from outside
sources. Chief among these are the
cow's body, the milker's hands, the
air surrounding the cow at milking
time and the containers used In
handling the milk. Every attempt
should be made to have clean, sani

To keep the bacteria count as
small as possible, Mr Arey tuggests
rubbing the cow's flanks and udder
with a damp cloth before milking
starts. Then use a small-mouth
bucket nnd milk with dry, clean
hands. The milking should be done
in a place where the air is free from
dust and particles. Especial atten

Rinse them in cold water. Wash with
warm water to which a good alkali
washing powder has been added, and
then sterilise them with live stearn.

Even then it is Impossible to keep
out all bacteria and the milk must
be handled so as to retard this de

cooling the milk immediately. Mr.
Arey says morning’s milk must not
be mixed with night’s milk until it

recommends a small cooling ma

Shelby SIDELIGHTS j

PUTTING US "ON THE
SPOT”; WELL, MAYBE
' Has Shelby any organized crime? Are there any criminal gangs in
the city? It so, who Is the 'number one’ man of the gang? Are the boot-J
leggers organized, and who is the king of the lot?”
Those are the questions tossed at this colyum by an imaginative ;
and curious reader. Perhaps he thinks he is putting us on the spot, but!
he isn't. If there were organized crime and rackets in this staid old!
burg—which, according to Tom Bost is an unusually good town because j
not a single lawyer boozes—this corner would admit knowing very little,
about it. Knowing too much, if one talks too much, doesn't pay.
Shelby, so far as we know has no A1 Capone and no organized
rackets. Shelby does have bootleggers—and w hat town doesn't, Parson j
Tom Bost to the contrary notwithstanding. But the majority of them, we
judge, do free lance work. Several of them may work together and use
the same source of supply, but, according to local officers, no one person,
or no gang, controls the home-brew and short-pint privileges of the
town. It is one of those towns, y'know, which believes in the old saw
about every man for himself and may the best man win.
The questions dished out in the first paragraph must have come
from some reader of the Chicago and New' York tabloids—or, perhaps, he
is a regular reader of the detective and crime story magazines. We hate
to disappoint him, but, honestly, we do not believe there is any call for
him to fear that a machine gun may start tit-tatting from a passing
automobile and make a sieve of his body. Our idea is that he read or the
attempted holdup and shooting just east of town about daylight Satur
day morning and then permitted his imagination to run wild.
At that there are some colorful figures among those the officers of
Shelby and Cleveland county keep their eyes on. (Our questioner would
likely call it the underwoldi. These personages, if they may be called
that, are to be met on the streets almost every day. They appear to be
just average people-regular folks. Our Idea is that the same is true up
in Chi. Many people, we suspect, have sipped their coffee on a stool
next to some of the biggest of the big time gangsters not realizing who
they were rubbing elbows with.
Just a few sketches assembled from conversation dropped here and
there by officers—
One of the alleged big-time rum-runners in this section Is a hand
some fellow with a husky physique as attractive as his facial features.
Although officers have a tough time getting the goods on him, they in
fer that his beautiful wife pilots some of the high-powered rum-running
cars on occasions. -~f===
At least two of the men officers believe to be whiskey dealers never i
take a drink themselves. Perchance they’re too sensible.
But that should be though food for our questioner s appetite for one
day. If he desires further knowledge of a thrilling and interesting type,
he might find it worthwhile to have several informal chats with officers.
They know a lot and can tell a lot informally that they cannot give out
officially. Much of it, or most of it, could not be published or handed out
as true Information by the officers. They may feel confident that cer
tain things are going on, and they may so inform reporters, but they
must know it for a fact and must show it in the court room before It
can become official public information.
Our questioner might as well go back to his detective story maga
zines and his tabloids. Shelby, when it comes organized crime, is a rath
er tame town. The only jargon of the big-city underworld heard in a court
room here recently was the statement made by one defendant that he was
fed up on "taking a fall" for someone else.
Shelby Shorts: Odus Mull, head man of the Democratic party in
North Carolina and more recently a Shelby textile manufacturer, says
bu.—«css is booming down here compared to what it is in little ol’ Noo
Arwk. Many offices and suites in the mammoth Empire State building,
he says, are empty and the chief revenue of the giant skyscraper comes
from sightseers who go up to peer down through the clouds upon the
remainder of the city . . . . This time last year people who lived near
miniature golf courses in Shelby complained about the noise made at
night. This year such complaints are not hearci. Draw your own con
clusions .A colored youth rattling out Marion street in a red-and
white striped collegiate flivver. On the tire cover the slogan, "From Sun
up until Sundown." Wouldn't it be a bit more in keeping with collegiate
habits to have it read "From Sundown until Sunup?" , . . . . Ever notice
the pet dog at Jolly's soda rendezvous? . . . . Beg pardon again, three
young ladies were a’stroning uptown t’other day in pajamas. Give ’em
time, boy, give ’em time; these Shelby girls lack much of being back

FOR HOME-COMERS; OTHER
PEOPLE DON’T READ
This home-coming idea for fair week this fall continues to click
here and there over the LV'AJ where natives have migrated. Lots and
lots of them are coming back that week. Some of them are all thrilled
about going out to Chapel’s Bend for a swim and a picnic. If you don’t
believe it read these memories contained in a letter from a Shelby boy
ot other days who lives way up yonder along the Atlantic seaboard;
"Who is that fellow, who after twenty years threatens to swim by
the rock at Chapels Bend? Sounds like Rufe Roberts—that don’t in
terest me — the picnic does — many of the old timers would come back
for another chance at fried chicken, devilled eggs and little “citern"
pies — JTStrry McBrayer could eat a whole chicken — including the giz
zard — Do they still fry the neck?
- "I can always tell when DeWitt is lying — his upper lip quivers —
Charlie Williams would have fought his weight in wild cats — licked ’em
too — John Wynn got his knowledge, of horseflesh first hand — the old

wouldn’t play baseball unless he could pitch — first time I ever kissed a
girl J. D. caught me — more careful next time — hadn't been for Joe
Cabaniss we would all have flunked Latin — Buck Hardin and myself

’’Everybody should come home once a year, at least — longest time
I have been away, four years. Several men said they forgot I lived —
sfX months has been the limit since. Shelby doesn’t fully appreciate the

In Capital Parkway
Which Passes Shelby
(Special to The Star.)
Asheville. June 23.—The move
ment to establish the Capital Park
way. a motor route from Washing
ton. D. C. to the Great Smoky
Mountains national park, has in
voked state-wide Interest In a pro
gram to enhance the beauty of all
highways in the N. C. state high
way system. A preliminary survey
of a state-wide beautification plan,
Is now being prepared for E. I)
Jeff rets, chatrman of the N. C. high
way commission, by Earl S. Draper,
landscape architect of Charlotte
The survey was Inspired as a result
of the plan to mark and beautify j
the Parkway route.
The proposed route to the Capi
tal Parkway extends from Washing
ton. D. C. through Richmond. Va.,
Raleigh, Greensboro, Salisbury.
Charlotte, Shelby, Asheville and
other cities to the Great Smokies
at Bryson City, N. C. The movement
to establish the route has received
added impetus from recent meetings
held at Raleigh, Richmond and
Washington. An organization meet
ing at which plans for the marking,
beautifying and advertising of the
motor route, will be placed Ui active
operation, will be held at an early
date at Greensboro, Dr. L. B. Morse
of Chimney Rock Is chairman of the
committee In charge of the organ
pians oi me capital parkway
committee bear fruit, the motor
route will be one of the most at
tractive touring routes in the south
with the borders of the highway
landscaped with shrubbery and with
bare cuts and banks covered with
attractive vines and flowering
plants. The Parkway route will be
marked every five miles with dis
tinctive highway markers.
A survey recently conducted by
Elmer Jenkins, manager of the tour
ing bureau of the American Auto
mobile association at Washington,
in which 2,000 motor travelers were
queried, revealed the fact that North
Carolian was second state in the
United States as a preferred tour
ing region. Good roads and scenic
attractions were reasons given for
the preference of the motorists. Al
though no definite plans have been
made by Mr. Jeffreys for the beau
tification of the state highways it
is believed that the state highway
commission will follow the example
set by the Capital Parkway, in mak
ing highways of the state more at
tractive to motorists.
State Highway No. 20 May Be
Hereof ter Known As U.S. No. 74
Intimated That State Highway
Numbers May Be Dropped And
D. S. Numbers Used.
(By M. R. DUNNAGAN.)
Raleigh, June 23.—Many North
Carolina highways now stand to lose
their Identity, their Individuality,
their distinguishing North Carolina
numbers, and to be absorbed by
United States highway numbers.
This Is not an announcement, but
an Intimation front Chairman E. B
Jeffrfess, of the State highway com
mission. who seems Inclined toward
a single number, a U. 8. number,
probably, rather than dual number
ing of many of the leading highways
in the State.
Dual numbering can easily be
confusing to the traveler, even
though the U. S. number u> on a
shield and the N. C. number on a
square or rectangle. Moreover It Is
expensive. North Carolina has to
pay, not only for the N. C. number
ing, but also for the U. S. number
ing on highways so designated In:
this state. Then the question Is ask
ed, why the two numbers?
No. 20 May Hr li. S. 74
U. S. 1 from Maine to Florida
crosses North Carolina. bearing
westward from a southerly direc
tion .entering near Norlina on the
north .through Raleigh and into
South Carolina by way of Rocking
ham. It follows N. C. SO all the way.
Why have a N. C. 50 when U. S 1
designates the road?
North Carolina's "main street."
Route 10, might even be lost. From
Asheville to Beaufort it is U. S. 70.
From Asheville west via Murphy and
into Georgia it is U. 8 19. Its com
panion. N. C. 20 is U. S. 74 from
Asheville to Whlteville.
The Atlantic Coastal highway, U.
8. 17, trasses over ft. C. 341, 342. 30,
20 and 202 in crossing the eastern
part of the state. U. S. 20 just ex
tended through the state from Bir
ingham to Washington includes
parts of N. C. 205, 20, 15, 10 and 70.
U. S. 21 is N. C. 36 through the
state until it reaches Pineville near
the South Carolina line, where it
becomes 261. U. 8. 321 runs over N.
C. 60 17, 10, 16, into South Carolina.
The U. 8. Highway from Boone to
Wilmington will follow N. C. 60 all
the way. U. 8. 19 and 23 run over
much of the same highway 19 split

west, both going over several N C.
routes in the mountain area and In
to Tennessee. U S. 15 runs over N.

Supply More Fruit
And Lest Meat In
Hot Weather Meals
Wc may reduce our intake of food
during the summer because there is
no longer need of the foods that
keep the body warm The weather
takes their place. The best advice
for the hot weather, writes Doris
W. McCray tn Hygeta, Is not to over
eat and to leave off entirely the
habit of nibbling.
Luncheon should be light, Includ
ing a vegetable salad, she advises,
or It may be made up of a cold
meat, one hot vegetable and a fruit
salad The evening meal should be
ample and should Include meat, a
salad, a vegetable, a fruit and
something sweet to give a satisfied
feeling at the end of the meal
Since breakfast comes so long
after a previous meal. It Is not ad
visable to cut down too much on
that. A summer breakfast suggested
by Mrs. McCray Includes freah or
stewed fruit, a cereal, with cream
and sugar, bread and butter, and
possibly an egg with a strip of bacon.
One way to avoid overeating in
summer Is to refuse second help
ings, says Mrs. McCray. If the
homemaker serves plate meals, this
can be managed. j
in summer avoid the following
foods: hot breads, freshly baked
bread, griddle cakes and waffles,
baked beans, lima beans, sweet po
tatoes, com, onions, cabbage, tur
nips, pickles, catsup, relishes, mus
tard, candy* and sweet cakes.
