Patrolmen Hester and Brlley be
gan wondering just what was hap
pening Monday night when a car
sped northward through Faison to
wards Mt OCive as if it were chas
ing a fire. Taking pursuit they
overtook a 1952 Ford driven by an
attractive 21 year old blonde from
Wallace Rt. 3. They questioned her
and wrote her a ticket for 70 miles
an hour driving. She was alone,
and dressed in a sloppy jacket and
wearing boots. They cautioned her
to take it a little more slowly and
cited her to court. "
This was about 9:45 in the eve
ning. About an hour and a half
later they saw her again speeding
south on the same highway and
chased her to Rose HiU where they
brought her under control and gave
her a ticket for driving 80 miles
The next day the young lady,
Miss Catharine M. King, appeared
in Kenansville and submitted to the
charges before Judge Hubert Phil
lips. The Judge combined the two
charges into one and fined her
$75 and court costs, together with
a little talk on why she should not
be In such a hurry to get through
life. Under the law the Depart
ment of Motor Vehicles will auto
matically take her drivers license
away for a period of one year, so
if she wishes io travel more in her
new auto she will have to secure
an escort which probably won't
be too much trouble. No doubt
she will be able to advise her es
cort on the proper auto etiquette
