Page 6 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 blind corner. Two cars came together on this dangerous corner recently. For tunately, no one was hurt, but the two cars were somewhat crippled at impact. 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 our cars.

Can Have i 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. We think Waynesville topo graphically is the loveliest and most unique town in North Caro i:o i ns , miIoui to see it I I 1 1 U TT . credited with all the other virtues possible for it. :v ' The fault we nave iouna io uc most distasteful is the system oi handling garbage. Allowing citi zens to put out their garbage in just any kind of make shift con tainer that do not contain, inere f ore, the garbage and especially the papers are scattered by dogs and the wind all along your beau tiful streets making them unsight- ly. ' ." The city from which we came is perhaps not a model city.. But we ! do have a model system of col lecting garbage, we think, one is reported and fined ror putting out garbage in anything but a reg ulation garbage can with a prop erly fitted lid that must De Kepi securely fastened down. . Garbage is collected irom me rear at all times and places. One is never allowed to put any Kino, of garbage out on the streets. There are covered containers all along the streets and the warning of a fine for strewing litter on the ntreet. There are men employed by the city who go up and down the street and who ero over the parks to pick up any little scraps of paper that mitrht hava been droDned by a child or from a passing vehicle. Therefore our city has been giv en credit by its tourists for being one of the cleanest and most sani trv cities in this country. A house flv in our community is al most unheard of. We wish we might say as much for Waynesville. Moral "A blemish on a knoll, is far more spectacular than a blem ish in a hole." COMBINATION PIPE, CIGAR ETTE .: " '.
