McKim discussed several other
plans, which called for additions to
the present buildings rather than
construction of a new one. The
estimated costs of the alternative
plans were about the same.
"This will get rid of those trailers

Work Bumps Small Town
BUMP - Bump, N.C., doesn't
appear on any road maps.
Bump, N.C. does appear fre
quently in the conversation around
k C.M. Outlaw's store at Secondary
? Roads 1300 and 1301, about three
miles east of Warsaw.
The mound of earth on the road in
the background is the beginning of
the end of Bump, however.
C.M. Outlaw said the stop sign at
the intersection was changed about
five years ago. Previously the east
west traffic had to stop at the inter
section. For five years the north
south traffic has had to stop.
Even though the right of way
changed, traffic continues to en
counter a bump in the road that had
not been a problem when cars had to
stop. To solve the problem, the state
installed an orange and black sign
proclaiming "Bump."
Local residents soon put up their
own identification sign, reading
".Bump City Limit." They added a
second sign below it, "Nu? S?no
All the signs are to come down.
Moe Mosley, one of the store set,
said, "I don't know what they're
trying to do to us. Ruin us, 1 reckon.
We still got six license plates with
'Bump, N.C. Nut Sanctuary.' "
Outlaw said, he's seen no diffe
rence in the accident rate since the
right of way was changed. "It seems
like there've been just as many
accidents since as when they were
going the other way," he said.
