Smoky Park bears are hungry.
That is what Tom Alexander, j
in leading a group on a 5-day
pack trip into the Park learned
The, group camped at a spot
that had burned over some years
ago. and was now grown un in i
wild cherrv. or eommonly known
as tire cherry. The bears seemed
| to have assembled in the tire
cherry areas to eat.
Six wild bear came within 5(1 ,
feet of the camp to eat the camp
garbage. Alexander reported.
I "I have never seen signs of so
many bears in the Park. We went
down a trail, and every 50 feet,
there were signs of where a bear
had scrambled up or down a
bank enroule to the 'ire cherry
area for food. It is amazing liow
many bears there seem io be in I
the Park." he continued.
Alexander feels that the bears
; are in the area iust long enough
to gel food, and will leave when
they get enough. Thev will scat
ter again throughout the Park.
One bear has been seen in cat

animals have been disturbed, he

No Change In Policy As To
Arrest Of Drunks, Mayor
Way Tells Local Police
"Waynosville police will continue
to arrest anyone that is drunk,"
Mayor J. H. Way said emphatically
"We will not tolerate drunks
wobbling around on our streets, or
driving drunk. The orders are to
arrest them," he continued.
"If those arrested for being
drunk don't like it, they can take
their case to the Supreme Court."
Mayor Way's statement of policy ,
came as the result of a State Sup
reme court decision which held
that officers cannot make arrests
without a warrant unless a breach
of the peace has occurred (ov i4
"We have a town ordinance
against public drunkenness, and
driving drunk, and we aim to en
force that law. Our town ordinance
is very plain about the fact that
persons drunk in public are sub
ject to arrest, and our officers, up
on finding such a person, or per
sons, will make the arrest. And the
defendant will be cited to mayor's
court," the Mayor continued.
IIGIIYVAY PATROL TO
CONTINUE TO ARREST
RALEIGH <AP) _ The head of
;he Motor Vehicles Department has
made it clear that the Highway
Patrol will continue to arrest
Motor Vehicles Commissioner Ed
Scheldt issued a statement yester
day in an effort to clear up some
of the confusion and complications
resulting from a recent State Su
preme Court decision
The court held that in misde
meanor cases officers cannot make
arrests without a warrant unless a
breach of the peace has occurred
or is threatened.
Scheidt said the patrol also will
continue to issue citations for
? He pointed out that the possible
effect of the court ruling in motor
vehicles cases is being studied, but
he added that from his prelimin
ary study "I haven't found any
thing in it applicable.''
He asserted, "It is the intention
of the Highway Patrol to enforce
the motor vehicle laws. We do not
intend to permit drunken drivers
to operate motor vehicles on our
highways . , . nor do we intend to
permit persons to drive at high
rates of speed in violation of the
motor vehicle laws. We intend to
enforce the motor vehicle laws and
make the highways safe. If a man
is driving an automobile obviously
intoxicated, he is creating a situa
tion where he is a menace to his
own life, and the lives of others a
well as violating the motor vehicle
The motor vehicles law gives of
ficers the right to arrest without
warrants for violations committed
in their presence, but confusion
has arisen over the possibility that
tlie court's ruling might affect the
power to ai'rest without warrants
for motor vehicle violations.
Col. James R. Smith, patrol com
mander, said that in drunken driv
ing cases, patrolmen are stopping
the drivers and attempting to de
tain them until they can notify au

man cannot subdue the land until
