All Primary FROM PAGE ONE Very few cars were moving on the county's primary highways and those that did of necessity venture out, were moving at a very slow pace. There were some minor traffic tie-ups on the county's highways but State Road equipment was [D[ ~OAST able to open them at least to one w~y traffic within a short time. One of the tie-ups aagin occurred on Alstadt's Hill near Harpers Ferry when a number of tractor- trailer trucks failed to fimke it up the steep hill. Charles Town State Police said a few minor fender-bumping ac- cidents had been reported but no serious ones had occprred. OH0 CE All of the stores and many of- fices in the downtown section of Charles Town closed early Wed. nesday afternoon and as a result pedestrian traffic was lighter than that on the highways and streets.
