Governor William UmsteacT has
given his "official and personal en

untary safety inspection of automo
biles promulgated by the Carolina
Safety League. The free inspec

A. Williams of Greensboro, chair
man of the League. On the left of

tine of Raleigh and McAlister Car
son, Jr, of Charlotte, secretary

Governor Umstead, Motor Ve

hundreds of business firms and or

Carolina. The program, which in

gets .under way this spring. ,' -
The movement is being directed
by the Carolina Safety League of
which T. A. Williams, Greensboso
automobile dealer, , is , ' chairman.
"This program is strictly volun

spections wont cost a penny .and I
wont entail any obligation on the
owners of the cars. We believe
that motorists will welcome an op
portunity to have their cars safety
checked if they are not subjected
to a lot of red tape and delay."
Governor Umstead issued, a form

ficial and personal endorsement" of
the program, which follows:
"I am happy to give both my of
ficial and personal endorsement to

owned automobile which carries
license plate No. 1 also carries a

WILLIAM B. UMSTEAD,
Governor of North Carolina.
The actual inspections will begin
in April or May depending upon
delivery of the hundreds of thou
sands of green, white and black
stickers which have been- ordered.
Cars and trucks will be inspected
as to brakes, steering, lights, horns,
tires, windshields and windshield

in an . officially approved manual.
Vehicles which are found safe, or
which are made safe following dis
covery of mechanical defects, will

The County Commissioners have given me authority to put
on a rabies program for 1954. Drr H. A. Phillips, Wallace, has been
named chief rabies inspector and Mr. Victor F, Williams, Wallace,
, has been named assistant rabies inspector. These two men will hold
clinics as to be advertised later and do house to house vaccinations
extending to July 1, 1954. After July 1, Mr. Williams will be accom
panied by a member of the sheriffs department to check on all un
vaccinated dogs. This means we are attempting to have a rabies pro
gram this year, f uthermore, it means that nobody else will be autho
rized to vaccinate dogs for rabies.
