Well Known Shelby Lawyer, Ex

Shelby Will have at least one can

This was definitely learned late
Saturday when Peyton McSwain,

prominent Shelby attorney, and
World war veteran, announced his
candidacy for the Democratic nom

North Carolina.
Capt. McSwain, one of the best

Western North Carolina and for a
number of years a legislative lead

ered as a prospective candidate and
has heretofore intimated that ~he
might run, but no definite an

Friends in the last general assem
bly, realizing his qualities began
talking him for attorney general.
Since that time he has received
much encouragement from mem
bers of his profession, political lead

Politically speaking, he is consid

the North Carolina veterans.

Holdup In City
Golf Station Robbed Sunday By
Hangeron Of Fair Carnival
Show.
A daylight holdup and rob
bery was staged in Shelby yes
terday, just before church hour,
at the Gulf service station, cor
ner of East Warren and De
strets.
Tommy Harrill, station manager,
was at the station alone when an
automobile with four concession
stand proprietors at the recent fair
midway and a fifth man drove up.
While Harrill was servicing the car
one man jumped out, ran in the
station and rifled the cash drawer.
He backed Harrill, who believed the
others in the car were his accom
plices, away from the door, then
jumped out the rear and ran out
DeKalb street.
The others in the car claimed
they did not know the man, saying
they picked him up at a local cafe
to give him a lift to Winston
Salem. They also contended he was
a native of Shelby. Officers who
, were called and arrived some time
later gave chase. It was believed t< -
i day that the fleeing man caught a
| taxi and left for a neighboring city,
1 and officers have some hope of nab
i bing him this week.
| The daring robbery in daylight
1 in the heart of the city attracted
quite a crowd to the scene. Only
(the change in the station cash
■drawer, $8 or $10 was taken, it is
said, as a larger sum had been re
moved from the drawer just a short
jtime before the robbery.

At Belwood.
A Methodist minister’s soil, a na
tive of Shelby, who started his ca
reer as a carpenter’s apprentice has
become one of North Carolina's
leading ’’merchant princes" and one
of the southern Methodist church’s
foremost laymen, says one of a
series of Associated Press sketches
of outstanding North Carolinians.
He is J. B. Ivey, head of the large
department store in Charlotte
which bears his name; a delegate
to the general conference of the
Methodist Episcopal church, south
and a member of the general hoe
pital board of that faith
Mr. Ivey’s rise to eminence in the
.business and religious life of the
[south was in the wake of an edit
cation curtailed by failing eye-sight
and hard work at $40 a year as a
carpenter’s apprentice.
Born In Shelby.
He was born in Shelby, June 8,
1864, where his father, the Rev.
George W. Ivey, was a Methodist
minister. He was the fifth of 10
children.
During his early years he lived
in several western North Carolina
communities where his father was
sent by the conference, and he re
ceived his early education from an
assortment of teachers and in the
primary department of the Daven

Young Ivey was ready for college

DlMutlc Organization Hopes To
Build Better Play Interest
Here.
Shelby will have an opportunity
Thursday night to see Its new drama
league at work. Rehearsals of the
two one-act plays selected for the
Initial productions continued un
interrupted all last week, and direc
tors expressed the belief that every
thing Is in readiness now for a de
lightful presentation.
Most of the stress in the produc
tion of the plays has been placed
upon the characters themselves,
upon the business and the dialogue
The settings for the two acts will
not be too elaborate, but rather
impressionistic to contribute just the
right atmosphere to the situations
and the plots of the plays. Lighting
arrangements have been carefully
studdled and worked out to give the
brilliant contract required in shift
ing from one play to the other, and
to shorten the time between the
acts.
Perhaps the most difficult piece
of character work In the plays Is
that done by Jack Hartigan. who
has character roles in both acts. In
the first, he is the middle-aged
Jewish proprietor of "The Florist
Shop,’’ interested particularly tn
the dollars and cents that come
from floral orders for weddings and
funerals. In the second cast, he is
of a more serious turn of mind, as
a. prison warden, trying to save the
neck of a young prisoner from the
gallows.

Dollar Reaches Highest Peak In
Purchasing Power Since War Days
[ General Necessities Have Dropped
In Price Thus Boosting Buying
Power.
New York Oct. 5—For the last
three months the American dollar
has been worth more in purchas
ing power than at any time since
the war, the national industrial con
ference board announces.
Necessities and average luxuries
that normally cost $1.64 now may
be purchased for an even dollar,
the statisticians reported.
When the drop occurred in the
stock market in October. 1929, the
cost of commodities began to de
crease and the buying power of the
I dollar, according!'-, began to go up.
It continued its fluctuation until It
reached its present peak in June,
1931.
Tile statisticians took 1923 as the
normal year. Figuring on that basis
clothing now costs 78.2 per cent of
normal; food, 81.9 per cent; hous
ing, 81.5 per cent; fuel and light.
89.6 per cent, and sundries, 95.5 per
cent.
In October, 1929, retail food pric
es averaged 110.1 per cent of nor
mal; housing, 92.3 per cent; cloth
ing 98.6 per cent; fuel and light,
93.1 per cent, and sundries, 98,3 per
cent.
At present, clothing prices are the
farthest below normal. The biggest
drop since the stock market crash
in 1929 has been in food prices,
which at that time were more than
lo per cent above normal and now
are nearly !9 per cent below nor
mal, a drop of 38.3 per cent.
Clothing has gone down 20.4 per
cent in the last two years and is
now 21 8 per cent belew normal.
Mighty Throng

Night Of Event
Officials Enthused At
Big Attendance
Mori* Admissions Than Last Year
With Price Cat In Half. Displays
Better Than Ever.
Thr eighth Cleveland Coont.v
Fair, despite the muchly-talked
depression, was the best agri
cultural exposition yet staged
here and with one exception It
was attended by the largest
crowd In fair history.
Only the attendance at .ne even
year before last excelled that this
year, fair officials stated today as
they began taking stock on the
trash-jittered tract where last week
more than 100.000 people came to be
entertained and to marvel at an
exceptional agricultural display.
Two Big Days.
The total paid admissions this
year exceeded those of last yea
Secretary J. S. Dorton said today,
and general attendance was above
all years with the exception of
1929, but due to the fact that ad
mission price was cut in half the
cash receipts were less this year
than last. As it was. however, th«
half-price admission this year wai
one of the main drawing cards that
put the fair over. Fair visitors frow
afar declared that never before ha«
they had the opportunity of aeelnt
so much for so little money.
"Although we didn't take in a?
much as we did last year, we wen
agreeably surprised,” Dr. Dorton
said. ‘The fact Is that we didn't ex
pect to take In anything like as
much for even with reduced ad
mission charges we were not so
sure that the crowd would be up to
normal We were fooled, It wu bet
ter than normal It Is a sure thing
that iio one was disappointed, or
could have been, with the exhibit*,
booths and displays In the exhibit
halls. The farmers and farm women
certainly did a fine job of it—th*
best one yet. I think all other fea
tures were first-rate, too. Everyone
was pleased with the big way In
which the first year of dog racing
went over.”
Tuesday, fair officials said, was
as usual, the big day as all school
children were admitted free. Satur
day, however ran Tuesday a cloee
race for attendance honors The
day crowds Tuesday outnumbered
those Saturday, but Saturday night
