The limitations estaDiished are:

cle; other instalment loans are '
limtied to a maximum maturity

In Kings Mountain, principal
effects of the new regulations
will be the provisions applying
to credit on automobiles and
some furniture sales, which gen
erally had been less demanding
than teh ne>^ regulations. It was
customary for some cars to "be
sold for down payments lower
than one-third and with longer
payment terms. Furniture sales
will be changed principally in
the matter of down payments.

credit contracts on furniture have

WaHer Fanning, or Shelby, dis
cussed the hydrogen bomb and
its potentials in an informative
address before members of the
Kings Mountain Lions Club Tues
day night - .
Mr. Fanning, assistant manag
er of Dover Mill of Shelby, gave
an interesting address, in which
he gave the background on the
development of the atom bomb,
which also led to the discovery
of means to make the even more
devastating hydrogen bomb.
The speaker stated that there
is one big reason the H-bomb has
not been started and that is cost.
He said it was estimated that the
cost would be $322 billion for one
bomb. However, he predicted that
the United Stales would eventu
ally build the 'bomb, reminding
his audience that few Americans
would own automobiles if they
cost as much as the first Ford
cost. Mass production and know
how would lead to methods of
production which would short
circuit some of the huge cost. j
The information on effects of
the atom bomb, now being stock
piled, and the H-Bomb was hard
ly pleasant. Mr. Fanning said
that everything within a mile ra
dius. of an A.-bomb explosion
would be completely destroyed.
An H-bomb, he said, would com
pletely devastate everything
within aradius of 20 miles.
Russia, ho thinks, has the se
cret to the H-bomb too, based on
information provided by Dr. j
Klaus Fuchs, recently imprison
ed by the British after he con- i
fessed to spying for Russia.
Mr. Fanning spoke on a pro- j
gram arranged by Ollie Harris, j

The city board of commission
ers passed an ordinance Wednes- .
day afternoon, setting up a 10
niemfter Public Parks and Recre
ation commission and empower
ing it to accept funds for public
recreation projects. '
The board acted on request of
a delegation of the present city
recreation committee, an advis
ory body, which included Mrs.
Paul Mauney, chairman, A. W,
Kincaid and Hunter Nelsler.
The ordinance issimilar to that
used by the City of Shelby and
several other communities in es
tablishing park commissions. It
will provide for 10 members with
staggered terms -to serve on the
commission, and provides for use
of parking meter money for park
purposes, when and-if, u^e of the
money for this purpose is legally
cated that a state legislative act
would be necessary to make use
of parking meter receipts for re
creational expenditures legal.
Principal other actions of the
board at its regular monhtly
meting were routine.
However, the board discussed
without action possible change in
the present policy on street -pav
ing work. Discussion concerned
charging abutting property own
ers all tht? cost of street paving
<50 percent to each side of the
street), with the city to pay only
the cost of paving intersections.
Past policy has been to tax prop
erty owners with two-thirds the
cost (one-third for each side of
the street), and with the city
paying the remaining third. Also
discussed was possibility of put
ting street paving assessments on
a cash basis. It was pointed out
that most other cities now follow
the policy of assessing 100 per
cent for street work.
In view of the discussion, the
board received without action
petitions from property owners
for paving of McGinnis street,
James street, First street, Rose
wood avenue, City street, a por
tion -of Cherokee street, and an
800-foot street at Sadie Mill.
The board approved transfer of
a, taxi franchise from D. L. White
to Coley Freeman. . ?
It heard a request for issuance
of a franchise to Forrest Dover,
but took no action. Dover told the
board he had agreed to purchase
