What Do You Know About
Motor Vehicle Laws? j
The horn on my car is broken. A
friend told me the law says I must
have one. Is this true ?
Yes, the Motor Vehicle Manual
states that every motor vehicle op
erated on the highway must have a
horn. This horn must produce a warn
ing sound audible at a distance of at
least 200 feet. Furthermore, the
book says horns should not emit
harsh or unreasonably loud sounds.
Which is another way of saying com
pression whistles, sirens, or other
noisy devices are prohibited on pri
vate motor vehicles.

Yards for Edenton’s
Coach Bun Perry’s Edenton Aces
were forced to return home from Wil
liamston Friday night with a 6-6 tie
game. The Aces got off to a sluggish
start and it was not until the second
half until they began to click.
Williamston scored a touchdown
late in the second quarter climaxing
a 77-yard march when Billy Glover
crashed over from the two-yard line.
During the drive Bobby Mobley, Bill
Lassiter and Jake Zeamon alternated
in adding yardage.
In the third quarter the Aces look
ed more like themselves and early in
the fourth quarter they scored a
touchdown. Starting at the William
ston 38, the Aces in four plays chalk
ed up a touchdown. The drive was
sparked by John Earl Whitson, who
gained the majority of yardage and
thrilled Edenton fans when he spotted
a hole in the Green Wave line and
raced 31 yards to score.
The Aces again threatened when
they advanced to the Williamston 35,
but lost the ball on a fumble.
Out of the Aces’ lineup were Robert
Twiddy, Sonny Wright and Ray Rog
erson, who are on the injured list.
Jimmy Harrison was also forced to
leave the gams early in the second
quarter due to an ankle injury.
Bill Hardison at center was easily

the Aces, while Cecil Miller and Ted
