It is against the law for autoists to drive through Verdi at greater speed than fifteen miles an hour.
The residents of the little lumber town have complained for some time about the speeders that hit up thirty to forty miles when they strike the pavement comine east
and now Deputy Sheriff Jack Bell has been stationed there to caution everybody in a car and he is doing it.
No arrests have been made as yet but these will follow.
Verdi residents say the road leading south of the railroad tracks to the school and thence up the Dog Valley grade is in constant use.
It crosses the main highway and speed at this point will almost inevitably lead to a serious accident.
The highway, too, is the main street of the town and pedestrians have been compelled to take their lives in their hands, the residents declare, whenever they seek to cross it.
