Balsam Citizens Turning Thumbs Down
On Speeding Through That Community
By Gertrude Buskin.
Balsam has always been a safe
retreat in the mountains for fami
lies and especially for women and
children who have always felt as
safe here as in a safety cone. It
is incongruous and not in keeping
with the place for cars to
race through the business sec
tion of Balsam. And when the
mail train arrives, it is more of
a driving hazard than ever, for
everyone gathers at the post office
and waits for that longed-for let
ter from loved ones. Mail time is
a happy occasion at Balsam and we
don't want it turned into a trag
edy by reckless driving.
George Knight said he hated to
gee the main road through Balsam
paved for he knew it would mean
fast driving and accidents. Lee
Pierson, who can see the danger
.nn where the road comes
off the mountain and joins with
the main road through town, at nis
vantage point on the railroad sta
that he had seen several
narrow escapes at this dangerous
Two cars came together on this
dangerous corner recently. For
tunately, no one was hurt, but the
two cars were somewhat crippled
One car is said to have slid and
skidded for a distance of about 75
feet before hitting the other car,
indicating excessive speed.
Like most accidents, it could
have been avoided if there had
been the proper observance of the
law and if the rights 01 otners
had been observed.
According to Ray Erwin, speed
patrolman, it is against the law
to, drive over 25 miles an hour
through a business or residential
section and through a school zone
it is 10 miles an hour. This ap
nlips to towns that are not incor
porated like Balsam, as well as
towns that are incorporated, he
said. As Balsam's business street
is in a school aone which calls for
a speed of 10 miles an hour there
should be no accidents if the law is
observed. The accident Saturday
is a warning for all of us to use
more caution and care in driving

Editor The Mountaineer:
Would you be interested in the
visitor's point of view of your
city? Not that we wish to un
justly or spitefully criticize it. ne
love it too much to do that. But
it is only to point out a few faults
which we offer as suggestions.

possible for it. :v '
The fault we nave iouna io uc
most distasteful is the system oi
handling garbage. Allowing citi
