Packed Schools Give Problem To Officials Here j Situation Acute At Marion School j Too Many In Grades To Be Seated In Rooms. Enrollment Gain Of 332. An unusual increase in city school enrollment, particularly as concentrated in one school unit in Shelby, Is giving Supt. B. L. Smith and school officials considerable worry, i At the end of the first school 1 week there were 332 students more in the city system than at the end of the first week last year. Transfer Pupils. The biggest problem of the swell ed enrollment was at the Marlon school which ordinarily has an en j rollment larger than can be han i died with convenience. With 374 students enrolled there this week, I 55 more than last year, it was im ! possible to place them all. Condi j tions were particularly crowded In | the fourth, fifth and sixth grades ! In one grade there were 55 pupils, | more than could be seated in the grade room. As a result of this con gestion in the school officials im mediately transferred pupils to other schools who were not within the boundary lines of the Marion district. These transfers, however, failed to alleviate the congestion to the needed extent and letters have been sent to parents asking that where possible they transfer their children to the Washington. Gra ham and Jefferson schools as it is absolutely impossible to handle all the present number at Marion. Nearing 3,000. The total enrollment is nearing the 3,000 mark. Today, at the end of the first week, there were 2.871 students enrolled as compared with only 2,539 at the same date last year. Within the next few weeks a hundred or two more pupils will be added. The trying part about the enrollment increase is that the number of teachers this year was based upon the attendance last year. The city system has several teachers less than last year and al ready has over 300 more students to handle with the decreased fac ulty*.

Joe Cabaniss, jr., the six year old child of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Cab aniss, or i-tarnora, (jonn., who was critically ill with menengitis a few weeks ago is said to be getting along nicely and will suffer no bad effects from the dreaded disease. The serum was administered before the disease attacked the motoi nerves and this no doubt prevented paralysis. Rev. iTohn W. Suttle, father, of Mrs. Cabaniss says news papers reported over 400 cases dur ing August in that state and most of the cases were confined to chil dren about the age of the Caba niss child.

(Fatty) Giles, Of Marion, Will, i Run For Lieutenant Governor In ’32 (Tom Bost in Greensboro News.) Raleigh, Sept. It.—While tour, five and maybe six candidates for governor are getting ready to storm the state, D. F. Giles, of Marion, put out the word here this week that in due season he will an nounce himself for lieutenant gov ernor and if the electors want a map who can do a good job of gov erning in the event of great emer gencies, Mr. Giles says the man isn’t to hunt. The Marion attorney was down here putting a pair of his own girls in Peace institute But he probably would have been here whether the girls came.or not. Al ways, even as Harry Stubbs and Ambassador Bill Neal, Mr. Giles has visited Raleigh. He has been coun ty superintendent of Wake, mem ber of the state board of examiners and institute conductors, member of the state senate and secretary of the North Carolina railroad. New's drifted downward from Marion that he lobbies semi-occaslonaliy too. He intends to make formal state ment of candidacy soon. He hears [that Senator Gertrude Dills McKee of Jackson, and ex-Speaker A. H. Graham, of Hillsboro, may be can didates for the lieutenant governor ship, but his plans will not be changed necessarily if either or both should run. He regards Mrs. McKee highly as senator and of course cannot discount Mr. Graham But Mr. Giles would like to preside over the senate, Mrs. McKee never has indicated any interest in the lieutenant gov ernorship, but people won't quit talking about her as such a possi bility. This is a greatly desired of fice. It carries little salary and smair woi*., but the lieutenant gov-: emor has enlarged functions with new legislation. Mrs. McKee is a superb presiding officer. And she could outspeak most of the men In a body filled with orators during the 1931 assembly. Mr. Giles as candidate for lieu tenant governor would let it be known in the outset that he is standing on the Gardner adminis tration and would defend it In the; campaign. i Baptist Association To Meet At Zion Church October 8 And 9 Rev.

Cotton States Await Move Of Texas Session Legislature Meets There Texas Farmers Endorse Long Plan To Have No Cotton Planted In 1933 The Texas state Senate has agreed on a cotton acreage cut, restricting the planting next year to one half of the culll rated area, according to a dis patch from Texas this morning. The legislature is meeting in ex tra session to discuss the Cotton situation. Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 11.—The in terest of the south is centered upon whether Texas, producer of a third of the nation's crop, would enact a fifty per cent acreage reduction measure or the Louisiana plan to prohibit Cotton production entirely in 1932. Both the proposed cotton relief measures were before the Texas legislature, called Into special ses sion on the cotton crisis, Rnd the Louisiana plan, which first had little support in the Lone Star state, yesterday had the endorsement of a huge mass meeting. Texans Cheer Long Wednesday night more than 7,000 farmers, meeting at Austin, cheer ed a radio address made by Gov ernor Huey P. Long, of Louisiana, from Shreveport, and endorsed his cotton prohibition plan with a roar of "ayes.” The 50 per cent acreage reduction plan also had been dis cussed. The Louisiana plan becomes op erative only if adopted by states producing three-fourths of the cot ton crop. Louisiana's legislature enacted it unanimously at a spe cial session recently. Meanwhile President Hoover planned to continue in Washing ton a series of conferences with bankers and cotton men in a hope that some solution may be found. South Carolina's legislators were making ready to answer a call to special session Monday to consider cotton relief legislation. They will consider only' the cotton prohibi tion plan and will accept no pay for the session except their expenses, limited to $5 per day. Governor Russell, of Georgia, who has announced he will call his leg islature into session as soon as “Texas acts,” dispatched his private secretary, Leeman Anderson, to Texas to study the cotton situation. Anderson planned to go to Austin by airplane. The governors of several cotton states have announced a desire to see what Texas does before call ing sessions of their legislatures.

City Auto License Tax Is Compulsory Auto Owners Are Buying Fewer At 35c Than They Did When Tags Were $1.00. Automobile owners are buying fewer city auto license tags at 25c than they did at $1.00,” said Mayor McMurry this morning. “The board has discussed raising the price of tags to $1.00 and arresting all who drive cars without a city license plate,” he added. Back tn the summer the city re duced the price of city auto tags to 25c. Heretofore they have sold for $1.00. But the reduced price seems to have created in the minds of the owners of cars in the city that It *s optional whether one should buy or not. Mayor McMurry says the pur chase of a city tag is compulsory and unless owners buy the 25c tags they are violating the law and are subject to arrest and conviction. The price was reduced to save money to the auto owners, but they do not seem to appreciate this fact and have failed to purchase tags. Back From Meeting. Police Chief McBridge Poston and Sheriff Irvin M. Allen returned yesterday from Chapel Hill where they attended the convention of police chiefs and law enforcement officers. COWS OR CARS?
