The Waynesville Post Office will
have three rural routes, effective
October 16, instead of the present
two, it was learned today from
Postmaster J, H. Howell.
The project began, in February
1950, and has Just been approved.
' The heavy growth of population
of the rural areas served by the
rural routes from the local office
necessitated the change, as pres
ent carriers are traveling about 64
to 69 miles daily,
Postmaster Howell said that spe
cial notices would be put in the
boxes of every patron advising
them of their new route number,
in the event of a change. Many will
remain on the same route, it was
The new route one will cover
31,55 miles, and cover in general,
the Hazel wood, Hyatt Creek, Sau
nook, Aliens Creek and Ninevah
areas. . .
The new route two will begin at
Mauney Cove, and cover Dellwood,
Maggie, Jonathan Creek, Iron Duff
areas. The mileage is even 62 miles
The new route three Is 46.35
miles, and will embrace Mauney
Cove, Lake Junaluska, Howell Mill
Road, RatclllTe Cove, Francis Cove
