Mull Speaks On
Local Charity
Depression Will Be Tbe Making Of
Men, He Declares. Kiwanians
Fed At Morgan Home.
Kiwanians were feci last night at
the home of Fred R. Morgan and
the proceed* from the meal tickets
will be donated to the charity fund
to be raised this winter. It was an
abundant repast beautifully served
by Mesdames Gerald Morgan, C. A.
Burrus, B. O. Stephenson, Chas.
Williams, Fred R. Morgan and Ma;,
T.attimore with 45 guests present.
They were seated in the large din
ing room at card tables with Mayor
S. A. McMurry in charge of pro
mam. The idea of a •'charity” din
ner was unique and the Morgan
dinner last evening netted about $35
to the charity fund.
' O. M. Mull was the principal
speaker and it was one of the fin
est speeches Mr. Mull . has ever
made. He is conversant with the sit
uation and addressed himself to the
world-wide depression, the differ
ence in money exchange and the
calls for charity because of unem
ployment. ‘ While we sympathise
with the farmer, there are many
people in worse condition. Farmers
at least have plenty to eat, but the
merchants and traveling salesmen
are taking the brunt of the blow.
v Many people accustomed to the
comforts of life find themselves in
dire need, yet they are too proud to
accept alms.”
Mr. Mull expressed the prediction
that American will snap out of the
crisis and civilization will be im
proved thereby. He declared that
service to o the re is our purpose in
life and the more service we render,
„■ the better we become. Our condi
tion is largely due to too much
money, too much pleasure and not
enough work, the kind of work im
posed upon Adam in the Garden of
Rden when man was banished from
the Garden snd made to earii an
honeit. living by the sweat of his
brow He expressed the feeling that
the calls for help would be met In
a generous »nd happy way and that
every possible effort would be put
forth to keep anyone from suffering

Cotton farmers and cotton
buyers in Shelby and Cleveland
county had something to scratch
their heads oyer today. The gov
ernment report yesterday indi
cated that the crop would be
more than a half million bales
larger than estimated by the
previous report. As a result
everyone.expected that the mar
ket, already at a low " figure,
take another tumble. It moved
up, for surprising reason, and
today local spot cotton was quot
ed from 5 1-4 to 6 1-4 cents or
around 25 points higher than
before the big report. Follow
ing the report yesterday the
general market advanced 1(1
points and about 15 points
again today. If the gain con
tinues the local price may be
boosted late today or tomorrow.

Work Of Highway Patrolmen At
Fair Done Properly, Fanner States
Hail Legal Right To Prevent Park
in* Along Shoulders Of
Highway There.
Highway Patrolmen Stone and
Allison were within their rights ana
carrying out their order* in sending
motorists before a magistrate for
parking along the shoulders of
highway 20 at the Cleveland fair
grounds last week. This announce
ment is made by Capt. Charles
Parmer, head of the state patrol,
and Lieut. Beck, who came to Shel
by and made an investigation of the
affair after complaints were made
by motorists who were tagged.
One night during the fair quite
a number of cars were tagged by
the patrolmen for being parked
along the side of the road where
highway signs forbade parking. The
cards with which they were tagged,
or some of them were the profes
sional cards of A, B. C. DePriest.
Shelby magistrate Some of those
ordered to report at the magistrate's
office intimated that the magis
trate and patrolmen might be work-*
ing together and protested that in
parking off the pavement tbev
were breaking no law. As a result
telegrams were sent to Governor
Gardner requesting an investiga
tion. One contention was that local
lawyers were alleged to have in
formed their clients that highway
patrol officials had no authority to
prohibit parking along the side oi
tne nighway.
Make Investigation
On the following day the patrol
officials came here to make their
investigation. This week it was
learned that the investigation did
not reveal any wrongdoing or at -
tempted wrongdoing. It was stated
that a new traffic law does give the
patrol authority to establish no
parking regulations where excep
tional traffic, such as that at the
fair grounds, demands it. The
proper parking signs, it was pointed
out. had been erected and in such
number that they could easily be
seen. With only two patrolmen to
handle the large fair crowds, it was
explained, they could not be two
places at one time and, therefore,
could not keep motorists driving on
as they parked at the forbidden
spots. There was nothing whatso
ever wrong, either, it was said, with
sending violators of the parking or
dinance before a magistrate as it
was convenient to do so and also
because the costs for the violation
would be less before a magistrate
than in recorder's court.
Magistrate's Cases.
The report also stated that the
officials visited the magistrates of
fice and found all the warrants to
be made out properly with the right
amount of costs. The contention
that the trial of sue hcases was be
yond the Jurisdiction of a magis
trate was contradicted. The maxi
mum fine, it was stated, for such a
traffic violation is $10. this bringing
it within the scope of a magistrate
The fact that the patrolmen usee
the magistrate's professional card
for tagging purposes was also up
held because of the convenience, al
though it was stated that the state
furnishes patrolmen with the nec
essary blanks for sending violator
to court.
Lieut. Beck while in Shelby de
clared that if anyone thought pa
trolmen were going beyond then
limits or were not discharging thei,
duties properly, it is unnecessary to
communicate with the governor as
i he is in charge of patrol work in
jthis area and will be glad to he a
complaints and make investigations

To Those Who Turn Down

Cleveland county farmers tn Shel
by this week declared that they
had more cotton and peas than they
could get picked because a big per
centage of the unemployed in Shel
by refused picking jobs.
It is an unusual condition when
Jobs are so scare, but any number of
farmers will verify the fact that
numerous people, white and black,
without jobs have refused to pick
cotton or peas at the prioe offered.
Tile price, given pickers in th
cotton fields of the county range.;
from 30 to 35 cents per hundred
pounds.
Urt Half Of Few.
One? well known county farmer
informed The Star yesterday thR’
he had plenty of peas in the field
goinjr to ruin because he could not
secure pickers. He had offered un
employed people here, he said, ha.!
of the peas they could pick ana
transportation to and from town
In nearly every instance he wa,.
turned down, he stated. Several col
ored people informed him that they
would rather not work and borrow
what they could than pick cotton j
for 35 cents per hundred. Farmers i
he declared, could not afford to pa;,
any more for picking with cotton
piling at such a low figure. The j
pea-picking dffer was considered a]
good one for the pickers, but only ? j
small number could be secured.
No “Handouts."
As the result of ao many unem
ployed refusing work on the farm
the county welfare agent was con
sulted. From that department comes
the announcement that when ftp
peals are made for charity here
after a checkup will be made to see
if those applying for aid have turn
ed down any oportunity to work. All
j applicants will be required to an
swer a*number of questions about
why they are not employed. If It Is
; learned that any of those physically
1 able to work had the opportunity to
j pick cotton or peas or do other farm
j work and refused to do so. they wi’
: be given no aid, it was said.
Picking cotton at 25 and 35 cents
and peas for a half may not be ar.
easy, method of making money,” the
statement informed, "but the re
numeration is sufficient to enable
'unemployed workers to earn their

given any who have refused s
chance to help themselves."

Brummitt Near A Split With Gardner Forces;
Thinks Taylor Working For Ehringhaus Group '
Raleigh, Oct, 9.—More talk and
comment has been caused by the
resounding denial by Attorney-Gen
eral Dennis G. Brummitt that he
has no intention of resigning his
office as attorney-general, even if
he should decide to run for gover
nor and his declaration that the
rumors to the effect that he might
resign were started by Tyre Taylor
and the Young Democrats, than by
the story sent out by J, C. Basker
ville to the effect that the latest
dopesters were predicting that
Brummitt would resign when he
announced his candidacy for the
Democratic nomination for govrr
nor
It was expected of course, that
Brummitt would deny any inten
tion to resign at this time, when he
is not yet an announced candidate
for governor and when the talk of
his resignation had been whispered
in the most confidential manner as
something that was not to become
known until January at the earliest.
But when Brummltt grabbed up
this sizzling grounder and threw it
at Tyre Taylor, who as far as this
writer Is concerned had nothing to
do with the report concerning
Brummitt's plans, an entirely new
vista of political speculation was
opened up, And political dopesters
have been making the most of it
since Brummitt made the wild
throw in Taylor’s direction.
Tavlor Silent.
Taylor has nothing to say for
publication concerning Brummitt's
charge that he is the author of the
"propaganda" concerning the nosr.i
bility of Brummitt's resignation.
Taylor, as is generally known, is
executive counsel to Governor O
Max Gardner .formerly his private
secretary, organizer and head of the
Young Democratic organization in
I he State that put on the now' his
I
toric Jackson Day dinner two years
ago, and is an enthusiastic support
er of J. C. B. Ehringhaus. of Eliza
beth City, for governor.
, Mr. Brummitt said he did not
necessarily mean that the parucu
i lar Story sent out was traceable to
| or inspired by Taylor, but that the
i whole movement having to do with
| the talk of the possibility of his re
| signing was traceable to Taylor and
his organization.
' X was not speaking so much
about that one particular story as
I was about something that goes far
back beyond your story," Mr. Brum
mitt said, when told-that the infor
mation upon which the story was I
bared had not conic from Taylor
but from another person who as far’
a* the WTiter knew, did not know
Taylor, but who was assumed to be
a friend of Brummitt’s. “I may tell
you more sometime and you ran!
