Boys Nabbed After ‘Kidnaping’ Driver j Statesville—Two amateur gang sters, who proved to be Statesville boys, hailed Neill Sherrill, 21, of Catawba for a ride Wednesday morning .near Catawba, pulled a pistol on young Sherrill and forced him to drive them for three hours, covering parts of Catawba, Iredell and Alexander counties, finally leaving the car when the gasoline Supply ran low on the ChipLay Fcrd road, four miles north of Statesville. Sherill, as soon as his captors re leased him, came to Statesville and notified city and county officers. Bloodhounds from Sffisbury were brought into service, their trail showing that the holdup youths had headed back toward Statesville. About 4 o’clock in the afternoon the climax of the hunt was reached when the boys were captured. Walter Campbell, 18, was found asleep in a swamp, with his big I pistol lying at his head. Rayford James, 16, was arrested half a mile north of where Campbell was caught. Campbell formerly spent some time at the Jacksbn Training school for store-breaking, but had been at home here recently. James had been charged with a theft, but was acquitted. Both boys admitted to officers that they held up Sherrill, who stopped at the intersection of High ways 10 and 10A and gave them a lift. Then Campbell held the gun an the driver, compelling him to drive over cross roads for three hours. Campbell told Sherrill he and James were from Chicago and 'We are tough babies,” threatening their captive that if he wanted to live he had better obey orders. Both Campbell and James arc confined. Campbell is in the coun ty jail and James in the city lock up ‘Cullid’ Boy Drops Melon And Flees From Nudists Sumter, S. C.—That nudists do not confine themselves to their col onies is vouched for by a local fill ing station proprietor, who states that Tuesday morning a car drove up to and stopped at his station for gas. He at once went to serve his cus tomers and was amazed when he got near to see four nude women and one nude man in the car. When the man started to get out the car( the station man warned him that he might be arrested, that he had better remain where has was. The nude traveler responded that they were merely "cooling off”. After getting gas, the car drove across the street to where a wagon load of watermelons was standing and the driver told the negro boy to put one in the back. When the car door opened and the negro saw the nude women, he dropped the melon and ran.

Gives Outline Of Policies Of New Deal (Continued from page one) own feet that it is more and more relieving the federal government of "responsibilities which undei normal conditions belong to busi ness.” Striking the point of his major theme, Roper said the Roosevelt regime is "squarely behind” the principle of continuing the "profit motive” and believed in “just pro fits for management and capital and an equitable return to labor for its rightful rewards in the eco nomic processes.” "No thinking business man de sires to have the old order restor ed,” he said. "He does desire and is entitled to have the new order characterized by a better control against economic cataclysms and by the freedom to. exercise his initiative in planning for the fu ture of his business in the light of an aquitable profit system.” Allen Resigns As Commission Head Major Matt H. Allen, chairman of the state industrial commission since its organization in May, 1929, has resigned to enter the practice of law in Kinston, his home. Major Allen’s resignation is to be come effective on September 1, but he informed Governor Ehring haus that while he would remain at his post until it was convenient for him to arrange for his succes sor, he wished to be relieved of his state post as soon as possible.

Wilson, have both been reappointed, Com missioner Dorsett, who was named from Siler City as the representa tive of industry, being reappointed by Governor Gardner in 1931 for a term expiring in 1937, and Com missioner Wilson, named from Asheville as the representative of labor, being reappointed by Gov ernor Ehringhaus for a term ex piring in 1939. CANADIAN RELEASED John S. Labatt, wealthy Ontario brewer and Canada’s first kidnap victim, is safe at home with police officials professing not to know whether ransom was paid for his release. Some source stated with emphasis that Labatt’s abductors re leased him on the outskirts of Toronto without' receiving a single cent of the $150,000 demanded. It was understood that Labbatt said he was seized by two men and that he was kept blindfolded until he was released. He said he did not know where he had been taken, and that he did not know who his captors were He said that the auto mobile ride preceding his release in Toronto lasted about six hours. It was Canada’s first kidnaping. —Buy in Salisbury— ~ -_1 THIS WEEK IN j WASHINGTON j .___I (Continued from page one) has come to the point of fearing rising prices may react unfavorably upon the Administration, particu larly in foodstuffs and other things consumed by city folks. And there seems to be no escaping the cer tainty that such prices are on the way up. The AAA, on the other hand, is bent upon getting better prices for farm products; but since Nature took a hand in the shape of the greatest drought in American his tory, its administrators are not so keen about enforcing all of their plans for .crop reducton. One definite result of the ap parent continuous swing toward the "left” in the Administration is a further tightening up of private credit. Individuals and institutions with free capital are investing only in Government bonds or other low interest souna securities, rei using to risk their capital in business or con structive enterprises until they get better assurances that they will bo given a chance to make a profit by its use. The trend in the opposite direction which the Government has been trying to stimulate by ts home-financing plan under thei Housing Act has not yet set in. This may come, however, if the new silver program turns out to be the beginning of a real inflation of the currency. The nationalization of all silver bullion at 50 cents an ounce, and the Governments announcement that it will take silver from all over the world and that price and issue $1.29 of paper money against each ounce is calculated to have a bene ficial effect upon Oriental trade ex changes and perhaps lead to a gen eral stabilization and equalization of world currencies. As a means of domestic inflation, however, it is not a very long step. Many conservative members of i the Administration think that real ’inflation is an inevitable next step, and they are advising people to put their funds into commodities and tangibles, certain that dollar values for such things will go many times iliiafipr cKnrtlv Anri flip nrpccnrp from the great mass of debtors for cheaper money is increasing rather, than diminishing. i CAPT. D. B. GREENMLL \ Capt. D. B. Greenhill, for many years a yard engineer for the Southern Railway at the Spencer! shops, was buried in Charlotte; Thursday morning at the Oaklawn cemetery, following funeral ser- ’ vices at his home at 522 North Main street, at 10 a. m. Capt. Greenhill died Tuesday night in a hospital at Morganton where he had been under treat since last November. His widow and two brothers, who live in Durham, are the immediate sur-l vivors. The poet wrote about children’s; happy play in grassy places, and the farmers say they are specially happy when treading down his grass.

Drunk Runs Cops Crazy With Calls Excitement was what Sam Bevil le, negro, craved Sunday night tfter imbibing joyful and stimulat ing beverages, police officers de :lare. Sam got excitement in a big way. He put in six telephone calls to various places in this city. The net results: Policemen were sent on a wild jcsose chase to a High Rock filling station 19 miles east of the city on the information that Ralph Davis, notorious outlaw sought for slaying Sheriff Kimball, of Iredell county, was there fixing a flat tire. Two ambulances went screaming down to the same filling station on reports that a man had been killed. A. third ambulance refused to make the trip. Police also were informed that a man had met violent death in that section. The fire laddies were called out ro extinguish a fire on East Hender son street, and while making the false trip, met the ambulances com ing back to the city. All the excitement aroused a aumber of persons, and consterna tion prevailed for some time. Fire trucks, policemen, ambulances and private cars all dashed past Beville’s bouse. Officers investigated fully. Bevil le was arrested and placed in jail. It is claimed that the people must acquire a more highly deve loped moral sense, so that they will reject wrong conduct more positi vely, and anyway they seem to have a quite strong moral sense about the doings of their neighbors.
