| Object to Bus Driver.
j Citizens of Flatshoal here Mon
day requested the Reporter to
call the attention of the school
authorities to the incompetence
or reckless driving of the school
bus driver who operates the
school bus from Hartman to
Danbury, doubling back then to
I Flatshoal and return to Danbury.
j It is alleged that this driver i.s
a boy 15 or 16 years of age who
; makes too much speed on the
' many dangerous curves that tra
verse the Danbury-Flatshoal
1 road, and that in view of the
' many accidents which are report
i ed from school bus driving in the
1 State and elsewhere, this driver
is considered unsafe and danger
' ous. With this view a number of
' children are being withheld from
1 attendance from Flatshoal at the
Death of Robert Alley.
Robert Alley, a good citizen of
Sauratown township, who lived
' near the Dan river power plant,

Monday morning the heavily
submerged landscape presented a
scene of indescribable beauty as
the clouds momentarily parted
and allowed the sunshine to kiss
the woods and touch up tha
mountain in brilliant light.
Hanging Rock trail looked like
a vision from Arabian Nights, as
the silver-coated hills glistened in

could hear a tree crash or a limb

Winter had indeed turned with
