The North Carolina Stale car in

this week-but Superintendent C.
P Sawyer says that motorists have
been shying awav from the in

Waynesville car owners did
fairly well in the first round of
the inspection Mr. Sawyer says
that about a third of the cars in
Haywood county were checked in
that period, which is average for
the eight counties that his inspec
tion crew works. But things are
slowing down this quarter.
"People are going to wait until
October, the next time we'll be at
Waynesville, and there's going to
be one big rush," said Mr. Sawyer.
"I want to urge all motorists to
have their cars inspected this
week while we have plenty of
time. There will be no waiting
and no expense to the check-up.
But they had better come on be
fore it is too late."
The lane here will be in opera
tion until July 13.
On Friday of last -week an av
erage day for this area 77 cars
were checked through the lane. Of
this number, 32 cars were ap
proved by the Inspectors and 45
were rejected for mechanical de
fects. Most of the rejects have been
because of faulty headlights, ac
cording to the figures kept by the
inspection crew. Thirty cars were
