Police Inaugurate Plans
To Cut Down On Speeding
Speeders in Waynesville better step on the gas with a lighter
foot, or they'll find themselves facing Mayor Way in police court.
Chief Orville Noland said today. I
"We have had some complaints about speeders, and are tight
ening down on the menace. Most of it. we feel, is youngsters play
ing, but that is a violation, and we are clamping down. We know,;
some of the violators, and ask the parents to warn their teen-age
drivers about speeding. We know some parents are going to be
surprised when they learn their son or daughter has been arrested
I for speeding. This is the warning for both parent and drivler. We
are out to stop speeding, and those guilty will have to suffer the
consequences." the chief said.

Store Plans Changed
For Mountain Views
Original plans for the addition
to the rear of the Katie Store
here made no provision for any
windows on the side of the
building facing on Hall Street.
However, that was before the
visit to Waynesville Wednesday
by C. J. Ferguson of Charlotte,
president of Kagle Stores.
Standing on the site of the
new construction, Mr. Ferguson
expressed his appreciation of
the impressive view of the
mountains to the southeast of
Wavnesville, hut was then in
formed that the view would no
longer be visible from the back
of the Eagle Store when the ad
dition is finished.
"Oh yes, there will!" Mr. Fer
guson replied and gave orders
on the spot not only for regular
store windows, hut railed for a
"picture window" to be installed
at the back of the store.
So it appears that the Western
North Carolina mountains have
won another fan, and the F.agle
Store's customers and clerks
will still have their view. !
