! County Teachers Have
$40,000 Pay Coming
jTwo Months Without
Pay Check
i
i All County Schools Closed After
Today For Cotton Picking:.
Sell Buildings.
When the remainder of the rural
schools of Cleveland county close
down this afternoon for the cotton
picking season the teachers, janL
tors and truck drivers will have over
$40,000 pay due them for two
months worn already done.
Last week five or six of the long
terrfl schools closed for six weeks
; and the teachers returned to their
; homes unpaid for seven weeks of
! teaching. It was hoped that the pay
' checks for the first month would
have arrived from Raleigh by the
latter part of the week, but they
failed to come in and had not ar
rived today as the six other schools
, closed. As a result many of the
teachers are low on funds and are
unable to meet their obligations un
til the checks arrive.
Early Opening Cause.
rms year scnooi saianes are be
ing paid by the State, therefor the
delay. Except in Cleveland possibly
another county or two the schools
do not open until September and
the reorganization of the school
system with all being State-sup
ported was not completed before
the rural Cleveland schools had
opened. The schools here, which
open early so as to close for cotton
picking, had operated a month or
more before any other State schools
started. Due to this fact the late
arrival of the monthly pay checks
has not proved inconvenient in
other counties.
Building Auction.
On the first Monday in October
eight abandoned school buildings in
the county will be sold at public
auction at the court house. These
schools were abandoned due to con
solidation writh ther schools. The
buildings to be sold are those
known as Palm Tree, Pleasant Hill,
Cedar Orove, Hardin, White’s.

County Fair Calls
Off Plan To Admit
People For Cotton
Officials of* the Cleveland
county fair decided yesterday to
call off the offer to admit peo
ple to the fair late this month
for 12 pounds of seed cotton.
The decision to withdraw the uni
que admission plan was reached,
Secretary -J. 8. Dorton states, after
many county farmers had protest
ed, They commended the motive
fcehind the move to enable many to
go who might not otherwise think
they could afford it, but feared that
j the offer would encourage the theft
of seed cotton from the fields.
Two other sound reasons were
advanced for the decision: It is Il
legal for seed cotton to be purchas
ed or traded in odd lots after dark
which would automatically elimin
ate cotton admission at night; and
fair officials realized that it would
be very inconvenient to handle the
gates under, the cotton plan with
varied grades of cotton coming in to
be weighed and stored.
"The farmers make the fair and
it is their support in offering ex
hibits and attending that keeps it
going. For that reason,” says Dr.
Dorton, "we have decided it best to
adhere to their views. But I would
remind that general admission has
been reduced from 50 to 25 cents
and nowhere in the United States
can anyone get more educational
entertainment for a quarter than
we will have at the fair.”
Champion Of All
Fox Hounds To Be
At Cleveland Fair
“Dangers Fancy,” the fox hound
which won the national field trials

est City and is one of the most

Gardner Not To
Call Session In
State On Cotton
Considers Move Not
Wise Plan
Legislative Action Would Not Help
Cotton Farmer, He Tell* Gov
ernor Of Texas.
Raleigh. Sept. 18.—Governor O.
(Max Gardner is unalterably oppos
! ed to the plan to prohibit the plant
ing of any cotton next year by leg
islative enactment, as favored by
Governor Huey Long, of Louisiana.1
and under no consideration will he
call the North Carolina general as
sembly into session to consider such
a plan.
So he told Governor Ross Sterl
ing, of Texas, both over long dis
tance telephone and again later In
a telegram. And he reiterated his
position to newspapermen here.
"It is going to take a great deal
more than legislative action by one
or all the southern cotton states to
solve the cotton problem,” Gover
nor Gardner said. "And the prob
lem is not so much one of bringing
about a cotton holiday or of man
datory acreage reduction, so much
as the development of other things
to take the place of cotton. At least
that is the way I look at It from
the North Carolina angles.
“Here in this state we must find
new uses’ for cotton, or else find
a substitute crop for It. Farmers
must raise more chickens. more
cows, more vegetables and more
fruit Instead of cotton—and the
state must help In finding a mar
ket for these other commodities, as
well as for what cotton continues
to be produced.
“But no one state can solve the
problem alone—nor can all the cot
ton growing states solve It without
the co-operation and help of all the
cotton growing nations.
“As I told Governor Sterling, 1
am interested in co-operating In
any practical, workable plan that
will help the cotton situation. But
I do not believe legislation is the
remedy, unless all the states can
agree upon a single plan. Governor
Sterling turned a deaf ear when I
suggested a preliminary conference
of all the governors of the cotton
states two weeks ago. But Wednes
day he called them all on long dis
tance to talk to them. But it was
too late.”

Texas Rejects “No Cotton Plan
South Carolina May Accept 1932
Measure; Long Called A “Liar”
Texas Legislature May Curtail But
Not Eliminate. South Caro
lina Favorable.
Austin, Texas, Sept. 18—After
decisively defeating the plan of
Oov. Huey P. Long, of Louisiana,
advocate of no cotton planting in
1932, Texas legislators last night
were in disagreement over provi
sions of suggested curtailment
measures.
Compromise steps were being tak
en, however, and a free conference
committee was expected to be nam
ed tomorrow to draft a bill on which
both the house and senate would
agree.
The house passed a curtailment
bill which would restrict cotton
planting to one-third of the culti
vated area. The vote was 86 to 32
Senate Has Not Acted
A coalition senate bill was amend
ed to restrict planting to one-fourth
the land in cultivation. The senate
measure has not been subjected to
a final vote.
Governor Long announced at
Baton Rouge his refusal to declare
void the Louisiana law prohibiting
cotton growing next year, explain
ing he wished Louisiana to ‘stand
fast" in the event other states still
might adopt thi cotton prohibition
plan.
The Louisiana executive explained
that he has until January 15, 1932,
to repeal the statute If other cot
ton states do not enact similar leg
islation. Previously Governor Long
had accepted the defeat of his pro
gram In Texas, the largest cotton
growing state, as meaning the
death of the no-entton plan.
Long Fails To Apologize.
••There is not a chance under

to pass any acreage reduction bill.”
