VOUNG GOLF PRO
Cocktail shakers and champ.onship golf cups will not mix. At
leart, that's tlie way Freddy i Snook> Webb. 16-vear-old Shelby golf
•tar and the Carolina* amateur champion, feels a bout it.
In the Carolinas open tournament at Reidsville last week the
youngest of the golfing Webb brothers turned In the best amateur score.
Hie first piire for amateurs was given by a Greensboro jewelry firm
*nd turned out to be a handsome sliver cocktail shaker, valued a:
•round $50. Fred, who doesn't drink and never has, found out, after
some questioning, what it was and immediately informed th# jewelry
firm that he had no use for it. By return mail the jewelry firm cour
teously informed that he could trade the cocktail shaker in for any
thing else of equal value. He will—and something other than a white
lightning mixer will be added to his growing collection of golf cups and
Incidentally, if the tobacco people do not object to ihe information,
the young golf star doesn't smoke cigarettes, either.

Horace Wright, of Haywood county, owns a dog which was
never born, but which was raised by a cat.
You doubling Tommies in the audience may not believe it, but the
freak is explained as follows:
The mother dog was shot and killed at the time she was about to
give birth to the dog now turned by Mr. Wright. An autopsy was per
formed and a Jive pup was given to a cat. The cat raised it and it vs
now a healthy canine although it first saw daylight by means of the

SHELBY SOON TO SEE
A REAL HOME SHOW
The majority of "home talent” entertainments m these parts—es
p cially since the heydey of the oldtime country school commencement
plays—-have been hurriedly assembled, trained over-night performances,
flow, information is, Shelby will soon see a well-trained dramatic per
formance produced and trained entirely by home people. It is not a
temporary set-up but is to be a permanent organization, something
similar to the "Little Theatre” players which have met with much ap
proval in other cities.
Advance tips on the cast leads to the belief that Shelby has enough
comely damsels, who are not tongue-tied and do not have wheels in their
head, and enough glib-talking young men to put on a play that will
entertain any audience. Maybe when it goes over this department will
have an opportunity to walterwinchell it.

WIN NIGHT GRID GAME *
One wag about town thinks the Shelby high eleven will win the
football game with Forest City tonight. The boys may never have play
ed football before at night, he says, but he knows several youngsters on
the team who are good at snagging a watermelon off the ground at
