Our Bus Change is the fundamental law of na- ture, Consequently, we would expect a school system to develope from year to year if it keeps pace with the times. Brad- ford High School has endeavored to be first in all departments of its curriculum so it became necessary for the board of education to begin thinking seriously about the problem of transporting its pupils who live outside the district. Beginning last July the principal made a survey of the territory tributary to the Bradford High School. He found located in this ter- ritory a large number of pupils who nor- mally came to the Bradford High School but were attending schools of smaller en- rollment and did not have the comprehen- sive curriculum to offer the student, but were attracting the students by transpor- tation. At a special meeting the board de- cided to operate a bus On a chosen route, for the purpose of transporting non-high school pupils. In the choicg of an operator for the bus the board of education was very fortunate. 'Skiney" Wood was finally chosen from a group of very competent bid- ders for the route. "Skiney" has 21 reputation for a genial disposition, pleasant g00d morning, to an the students who are on time, and a clever remark for the few who are not "Johnny on the spot" each morning. He is well liked and re- spected by all the students who ride in the bus. It is rather a remarkable and unusual record but the bus has never been late during the school year. This speaks very well for both the driver and the pu- pils, "Skiney" is always willing to make a late trip so the students may have the advantage of seeing a football, basketball game, or attend an all school party. Need- less to say this doesn't detract from his popularity. In addition to bringing the students to school each morning the bus is used in all extra-curricular trips. This adds very much to the efficiency of the school sys- tem. When the football team, basketball team, band, glee clubs or future farmers desire a trip they are all transported in the bus This has many advantages that people who are not closely associated with the school realize. It means that with two teachers it is possible to closely supervise any group of students who are on the trip, It means that the best means of trans- portation is provided with a competent driver and in a vehicle that is in perfect mechanical condition. It means that all students leave together and come home together: and finally it means that by traveling together a closer bond of friend- ship develops among the students. So we the student council, representing the student body of Bradford High School, wish to congratulate the board of educa- tion upon this timely and worthwhile in- novation to our school system. May they continue in their progressive attitude to- ward the young people of the community.
