GRlDDERS EAT YRA8T
TO GET BIG AVD HARD
If tho Shelby high football eleven establishes anything bordering on
a good record this season, then the yeast manufacturer* should get the
boys on the team to write testimonials for their product.
Tt'a this way: When Coach Casey Morris called out his football
squad a weak or so ago he looked over the boys as they filed In the gate,
t ten took a seat and waited. When no others appeared he asked where
the big boys were: The 110 and 125-pound youngsters threw out their
chests and replied "Were them" or something to that effect. But think
ing ahead to the first game with the bruising big Charlotte eleven and
other husky outfits, the Shelby coach let It be known that he would be
mighty proud of a Half dozen boys weighing better than 150 and a few
clipping the scales around 190. They were not there, however, and the
coach told the none-too-heavy hopefuls that they'd have to make up In
fight what they lacked in weight. Still he reasoned that It Is impossible
for a good little man to be as good as a good big man. The boys went
home that night and slept over the problem. Since that day a dozen or
so youngsters have been buying yeast cakes at the grocery stores just
like they bought sodas at the drug stores during the summer. If yeast
Will give them poundage and vim. they mean to have those two things.
If you're skeptical. Just stop one of the boys and ask him If Shelby
high isn't using the yeast system in tead of the Rock no system or any
SHE SMOKES, SHE
SMOKES NOT. HUH?
Ever notice how much the girl who smokes Luckle* because she con
siders her Adam's apple looks like die girl who doesn’t happen to smoke
tut hai a boy friend who prefers Chesterfield?
\es, honest to goodness, tve had noticed the resemblance, but It was
not until the New Yorker made an Investigation that we really knew
the same girl posed for both. Her name is Peggy Fish and she'd even
. roll her cwn and boost Bull Durham If the Bull Durham makers will
pay her price for posing.
But what we'd like to know -one bit of information the New Yorker
failed to give—docs t he smoke or not, and If so, what docs she smoke
when not poelng?

SCHOOL SINNER HOUR
Well, Weill Things ere picking up. g
Monday this corner dusted out a nice little space and turned it over
,r> * 8hetby mother so that she might speak her mind about the time
* given at the dinner hour at Use Shelby high school. According to hei
version the children are let out at 10 minutes until 12 and required to
be back at 1?:30. The time, the mother contended, wai too brie/ for
the children to get heme, eat and set back without considerable rush.
Before a single copy of that Issue of the paper had been, used for
kindling of for packt|ig fruit Jars there came a courteous call from the
high echoed principal informing that there was a mistake somewhere.
So, right In this space well permit the school official to hare hi* say:
"No doubt It was an unintentional error, but Instead of liaving a
forty-minute period we have a ftfty-miuute period. School turns out
for dinner at 10 until 12 and takes up again at 12:40. At that, howevcf.
we desire to adjust and arrange the schedule so as to make it the most
convenient for a majority of the parents and pupils. If the period 1...
not satisfactory as it is now, we‘U be glad to make the necsssary ad
justments when a sufficient number of parents and children request tt.
As for staying longer in the afternoon or opening earlier in the morn
ing tn order to give a longer period at noon, school officials and teach
er* would not mind doing It. The majority of us are here from 8 until
S anyway. We turn out school 10 minutes before 12 this year because
many parents requested It for two reasons: the 10 minutes give the
children time to get along the streets and to their home.? before the heavy
and dangerous traffic period at 12 (harp; and In a big percentage of
Shelby homes tjie lunch hour is at 12 sharp. When the children leave
10 minutes before they are enabled to get home In time to keep from
delaying the meal of the others. Hie dinner period is now 50 minutes.
Perhaps it Is too short but it would be impossible to make the period
long enough to permit every student, we have at the high school to walk
leisurely home and back becau e some of the students live a mil* and
cne-half and two miles from the high school building. This isn't a criti
cal attitude, but is merely to explain the problem we confront "

Southern Farmers Better
New York..—Buoyed up by a rec
ord breaking cotton crop despite
low prices, the farmers of tho south
have more money to spend this fall
than they had last, C. A. Cobb,
farm paper editor of Atlanta, Ga.,
told a group of advertising men at
a meeting in the advertising club.
Cobb has just completed a per
sonal tour of Southern farming
Are Better Off
He said the Southern farmers
ure better off this year in face 01
the depression because of mire
economical productoin, not only of
cotton but other crops, through in
creased use of modern machines,
greater efficiency and availability
of farm labor, favorable weather,
and reduced costs of fertilizer, seed
The farmers had to borrow less
money for this season’s operations
than in previous years and the
enormous increase in feed and food
will make available for general
purchases much of the cash whicn
usually is spent for these necessi
ties," Cobb said.
"tyith a smaller total acreage
under cultivation, the cotton crop
nevertheless will aggregate nearly
15,036,000 titles or about 1,780,000
bales more than last year.
He said approximately 243,830,
000 more bushels of corn have been
raised in the south this year than
last and that large increases also
are estimated for oats, potatoes, ap
ples, tobacco, peaches and other
With respect to cotton, he said
this year's crop is not only the big
gest in years but also one of the
finest in quality.
Reviewing the financial stability
of the Southern farmer, Cobb de
clared that the mortgaged indebt
edness of farmers in the two states
of Iowa and Illinois is $350,000,000
greater than the total mortgaged
indebtedness of farmers through
out the south.
