A NEWSPAPER IN ALL THAT THE WORD IMPLIES AND DEVOTED TO THE BEST INTEREST OF THE PEOPLE OF CHEROKEE COUNTY. ESTABLISHED FEBRUARY 16, 1894 GAFFNEY, S. C, TUESDAY, SEPT. 24, 1923 $3.00 PER YEAR IN ADVANCE NEY i Mb GAFFNEY FACING TOUGH SCHEDULE, TO BEGIN FOOTBALL SEASON FRIDAY WITH LOCKTART AS FIRST OPPONENT pions Setting Forth on Campaign with High Hopes of Landing on Top 3rd Time. STRONG SQUAD TO TAKE THE FIELD IN FIRST GAME Gene Phillips Likely to Be Kept Out by Bad Knee, but Others in Excellent Shape. The Gaffney High School foot ball squad, known as the "Cherokee: Indians," will begin the 1929 campaign tomorrow with high hopes of repeating in the matter of winning the South Carolina championship. Gaffney has held the crown for two years in sue-- cession. This will make the road to the top this year harder, for every team . played by the locals will set itself to defeat Gaffney. The opening game of the sea son will be played here Friday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock with Lbckhart High School, of Lock-hart, as the opponent. Lockhart will come to Gaffney as an unknown quantity, but no one here is expecting the game to be a walk-over. The rainy weather this week has interfered with outdoor prac tice. Coach L. F. Carson has taken advantage of the situation p drill his players in some of the finer points of the game. Gaffney has a strong line-up with several veterans from last year's championship squad, but will enter the game minus the services of Gene Phillips, star fullback, who recently injured a knee. Amzi Bridges, who had been counted on to fill one of the tackle berths, is lost to the team, nrobablv for the season, by reason .illness. He was stricken with jphoid fever two-, .weeks , ago, after having practiced with the quad for three or four days. Coach Carson has made no an nouncement of his line up, hut it is thought likely Jim Gooch and Wilburn Clary, both veterans, will start at the ends. Wade Humphries and Gerard Guthrie will serve as guards, while Ted Turner and McKown are expected to fill the tackles. Moore will probably be used at center, a place made vacant by the graduation last commencement of Waite Hamrick, Jr. The starting backfield will like ly be "Red" Huskey, "Red" Hum phries, Earl Clary and Don Hum phries, although Harmon may get the call. The team is likely to kniss the services of Gene Phil lips, but there are several good players ' who will be available for duty m case of need. The ' B " team, which in many tespects is the equal of the "A" eleven, includes such players as Jefferies at center, Kirby and Moss as guards, Higgins and Gaffney at tackles, D. B. Phillips and Jack Darwin on the wings, and a backfield made up of Med ley, Eb Jefferies, Harmon and John Hamrick. The squad also numbers several substitutes who are not listed with either team. Gaffney has eight or nine con tests definitely scheduled for the season opening tomorrow with one date still pending. The list of opponents includes such schools as Boiling Springs Junior College, of Boiling Springs, N. C; Hendersonville, N. C; Richmond Academy, Augusta, Ga.; Spar tanburg, Greenville and Anderson. land Bailey Military Institute of Greenwood.

DOZEN FARMERS TO PLANT PEAS TEN OTHERS TO PLANT ALFALFA. Increasing Interest in Soil Building Leguminous Crops Noted by County Agent. Twelve Cherokee county farm- v.-ill this fall plant Austrian winter peas as a soil building crop, -according to a statement given out yesterday by County Agricultural Agent S. C. Strib-ling, who on Monday supervised the distribution of a cooperative order for 2,440 pounds of seed. These peas, ordered from a Columbia seed house, will be used by Joe C. Black, John R. Huggin, Will C. Camp, Ralph LeMaster, Lieut. Gov. T. B. Butler, Ed E. Parris, R. E. Parris, Claude Mc-Arthur, Wilkes Humphries, Charlie Swofford. and T. L. Neal. In addition to the above, R. S. Lips comb, manager of the Cherokee Farm, has secured 220 pounds for his farms. The Austrian pea is a comparatively new crop in America, although it has been grown for generations in Austria-Hungary and other European countries. It resembles the sweet and English peas in growth and is a very hardy winter crop, having stood the low temperature of 10 degrees F. at Clemson College during the first week of January, 1928, without damage. It is a legume crop and as a nitrogen gatherer ranks among the highest. Among the farmers who grew it in Cherokee county last year were Joe Black, Will Camp, T. L. Neal and S. B. Vassy. Unfortunately the crop in Europe this season was very short and the seed are hard to secure, and the above farmers feel themselves fortunate in having secured their seed for this season. I Some to Plant Alfalfa. In discussing the increasing in terest in legume crops in the county, Mr. Stribling also stated that the past week a group of ten farmers in the county placed a cooperative order for approximately 850 pounds of alfalfa seed to be planted this fall. The farmers who are expecting seed from this order are: Joe A. Dickson, J. Alfred Whisonant. P. G. Dickson, W. L. Shuford, W. Ross Ham-bright. C. Ed Byars, J. Ensley Humphries, Frank McCluney. W. B. Kirb- and M. E. Higgins. Some three or four other farmers are known by Mr. Stribling to be planning to plant alfalfa also this fall. It will be recalled that some 18 to 20 farmers of the county have clubbed together this fall and ordered six cars of agricul tural lime to be used under cover crops. These facts are conclusive evidence that farmers are becoming very much interested in the growing of winter cover and hay crops. Warnings at Charleston. Washington, Sept. 24. The weather bureau today issued the following storm warning: "Advisory. 5 p. m. Northwest warnings were nut up from Miami to Jupiter, Fla., northeast storm warnings north of. Jupiter to Charleston, S. C. Tropical disturbance centered 2 p. m. about 150 miles northeast of Nassau, apparently moving west northwestward and increasing intensity." ' "You might say it is a home made motor," Mr. Sarratt stated. The wing spread will be 30 feet. The ship itself will measure 25 feet, will weigh approximately 500 pounds and will be two feet wide. Mr. Roddey and Mr. Sarratt have done all of the work on the plane. Mr. Roddey, who is credited with having a pilot's license, was a former employee of Storm, Spartanburg plane manufacturer. He is said to have had experience as a pilot in Asheville, N. C. If the machine is a success the builders may manufacture planes, Mr. Sarratt said. He estimated that a ship such as he and Mr. Roddey are making could be sold for $950. It will have a cruising speed of approximately 65 miles per hour. It is a "one seater" Yesterday afternoon a horde of boys and men filed in to look at the plane and question Mr. Sarratt. He stated that it had resulted in a constant crowd of visitors at the garage. W. H. Alexander, secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, is already making arrangements to allot a space at the county fair grounds to the new ;;h:p. It will be covered with a tent. The, try out will be on the Gaffney landing field if the builders can obtain permission from government officials to use the ground. k FIELD CROPS TO SHOW VARIETIES QUINN EXPECTING GOOD DISPLAYS. Division Superintendent Com ments on Prospects for Ex hibits at the Cqunty Fair. Cherokee county's reputation for being one of the most diversified agricultural counties of the upper section of South Carolina will again be substantiated dur ing the coming fair, three weeks away, according to Sherman Quinn, superintendent of field crops, horticulture, bees and hon- py. In an interview with Mr. Quinn, it developed that the possibilities of having larger and more varied farm crops throughout Cherokee county will have a tendency to fill the exhibit space to capacity on the day the fair is opened to the public. "The crops are in the county this year," asserted Mr. Quinn, "and all we have to do is to get the farmers interested to the point of selecting the best they have raised and bring them to the fair. I attended the Shelhv Fair on Tuesday, the opening day, and saw some of the best collections of farm products that have ever been exhibited at a fair in this section," continued Mr. Quinn. "The farmers of Cleveland county have a great interest in their fair and therefore are able to make exhibitions of farm products that advertise their county far and wide, and with the prospects we have in Cherokee county, we can display farm products that will come up to any of the fairs of the adjoining counties." "If the interest of the farmers with whom I have talked regarding entries may be taken as an indication of the attitude of the county as a whole, we will have the most complete exhibition of field crops that has been shown at any fair in Cherokee county," declared the superintendent of that department. "To stimulate this interest, T. W. Wood and Sons, Seedsmen, of Richmond, Va., have again offered a slver vase for the best exhibit of ten ears of corn of any variety. This vase may be competed for by any farmer or Boys' Club member in Cherokee county," explained Mr. Quinn. and is given for the purpose of encouraging the raising of better seed corn in this county. The vase is a beauty and is certainly worth trying for. The winner's. name will be engraved unon it and it becomes his permanent property. It will be remembered that Henry Moeller, route 2, King's Creek, won the T. W. Wood vase in 1928," continued Mr. Quinn Almost eighty items are listed in the premium list in this de partment for competition and prize money in excess of one hun dred and fifty dollars is offered hy the fair association. These items include corn, wheat, oats, rye, cowpeas, peanuts, cotton, miscellaneous field crops and hay in the field crops division, sweet and Irish potatoes, miscellaneous garden vegetables, home orchard fruits, annles and other fruits in the horticultural! vision and bees and honey. The first and second prizes will be paid in cash and a ribbon given for the third, MOUNT PARAN IS SCENE OF PARTY MOSS CHILD UNDERGOES OPERATION.
