Some Pointers For Voters
KM Elections Set
For Tuesday, Nov. 3
' To: Th« Voters Oi Kings Mountain
From: The Elections Board Chairman
I would like to remind the voters of Kings Mountain once again that
the city has two voting places or precincts, whichever you prefer. They
are named East and West. East votes at the Community Center and
West votes at the National Guard Armory. Precinct boundaries are
determined by the so called county precinct line which is set up and
controlled by the County Elections Board. The present county
precinct line is the Southern Railroad and has been for many years.
Plsase remember this: If you live west of the Southern Railway
tracks, you will have to vote at the Armory in a County Election. If
you live East of the Southern Railway tracks, then you will vote at the
Community Center in a County election.
The city is divided into six (6) Districts. Districts 1,2, and 3 vote at
the Community Center in a City Election. Districts 4, 5, and 6 vote at
the Armory in a City Election. You must know which district you live
in to vote properly in a city election. If you are in doubt as to the
district you live in, then you may wish to look at a city map. These
maps are located in the City Hall, Community Center, National Guard
Armory, and Griffin Drug. Or you may call an official of the Elections
Board or an election official. These district lines were drawn up six
years ago and you should be familiar with them now.
On November 3, the county will be conducting the School Board
election and the city will be conducting the run-off election for District
Six. If you live in the “Meadowbrook-Cresctnt Hill” section that was
added to District One by the “Equalization Board” in 1975, then you
will vote at the Armory for the School Board and at the Community
Center for the City Commissioner.
The county precinct line of the old Southern Railway is out-dated
and has been for many years. Originally it was a great idea when it ran
right through the middle of the city but now it really is in East Kings
Mountain and a new line should be drawn further west. This is the
best way to eliminate the problem that I just mentioned. The voting
now is too heavy in the West Precinct and changing city districts again
will not solve the problem.
From Pag* 1-A
“Every four years, the county
purges the books,” he said.
“Everyone used to think that if
they voted in one city election.
they were always registered. But
elections are now handled by the
county, and according to the
rules, if you miss two presiden
tial elections, youYe purged.”

To the editor:
La.st week. Kings Mountain citizens had a very special privilege, an
opportunity to hear the North Carolina Symphony. The Symphony
members did an excellent job of presenting fine music to their au
diences. I would like to urge more people to attend the evening perfor
mance if we are fortunate enough to have them return next year.
On Friday, October 16, the Symphony played a concert for all of
the third, fourth and fifth grade children in the Kings Mountain
School District. That concert was beautifully done. The children not
only listened to fine music, but they also participated in the concert. It
wasa culmination of a really outstanding learning experience for the
children. Mr. Parkhurst, the conductor, displayed great skill at
reaching his young audience. Mrs. Shirley Austin, our local music
teacher, had done a fine job of preparing the students for this concert.
Many of the regular teachers had also put much effort into preparing
the children for the concert. 1 do believe that it was most worthwhile
I would like to thank the people who made it possible for the North
Carolina Symphony to come to Kings Mountain. It is my wish that we
will again have this wonderful opportunity.

“God’s Plan of Prosperity” will be the topic of discussion this Monday,
Oct. 26,7.-00 p.m.at First Assembly of God, Waco Rd., Kings Mountain, ac

popular guest on numerous TV talk shows including PTL. Jim Bakker refer
red to him as the world’s greatest offering taker.
Of recent months wage earners world wide are feeling the pinch of infla
tion on our ever shrinking dollar. Copple’s formula solves this problem for
many parishioners according to pastors who have sponsored these services.
He has taught his plan of prosperity in poor areas overseas with almost
unbelievable financial miracles.
He uses a chart showing 50-100 Scriptural references. His vast knowledge
and ability to quote the Bible has earned him the nickname, ‘The Walking
Bible.” Old timers say that his quick wit and dry humor remind them of the
late Will Rogers.
Many pastors state that all kinds of financial miracles happen within a
few days or weeks to people who attend these services and heed this plan of
Successful as a real estate entrepreneur, Dave Copple, relates how
through “God’s Plan of Prosperity” he built a thriving business from an
organization plagued with financial woes. Speaking of his work he stated he
especially enjoys sharing this plan in economically depressed areas and areas
of high unemployment.
Pastor Baliles extends a special invitation to ail to attend this Monday’s
lectures. There is no charge as the ^urch is sponsoring this as a
community service;"'* ' - '
