STATE TRANSPORTS 1
PUPILS AT LOW COST
More Children Transported
and at Lower Coet Than
8 Other States
Raleigh, June 17. ? North Carolina
now transports more children to
school, and on a per capita basis and
hauls them at less expense than any
other State, according to a recent is
sue of State School Facts, publication
of the State Department of Public In
"The average cost per pupil trans
ported in this State, ' that paper
points out, "was only $11.67 during
1928-29, whereas the average for the
United States was $23.02. The high
est cost per pupil is $84.44 in the Dis
trict of Columbia. The highest cost
per pupil in any state is that of
$49.41 in Wyoming."
During 1929-30 this State hauled
181,494 children at public expense.
Indiana ranks next to North Carolina
in the number of children carried to
school at public expense, that state
having hauled 145,715 pupils. The
total cost of transportation in In
diana, however, was double that of
this State. Whereas it cost approxi
mately $2,000,000 in North Carolina,
the state of Indiana paid nearly $4,
000,000 for its school transportation
"Transportation of school children
at public expense," according to
School Facts, "began in this State
during the year 1912-13. All early
transportation was done by horse
drawn vehicles. In 1917 the first mo
tor truck for carrying pupils to school
was purchased by Pamlico county.
Beginning in 19X4-15 with 6 vehicles
hauling 247 children this activity has
grown until at present more than 4,
000 motor vehicles are used in carry
ing daily 181,494 children and. serving
schools. These 4,046 convey
ances traveled 108,000 miles daily, a

Hail played havoc several days age
over a small area in Little River's
rcih farming section, beating crops
into the ground and making com
plete re-planting necessary. Ovei
an area about half a mile wide anc
one mile long, the hail fell in great
quantities, being four feet deep ir
some of the places where drifts wer<
formed by the heavy winds that ac
companied the hail storm. About Pen
rose, Davidson River and Pisgah
Forest much hail fell, but not in suf
j ficient quantity to do much harm.
The area suffering most was at'tht
head of the fertile Little River val
ley, the storm passing from there or
over the wooded area about the pow
er dam. Older residents of the com
munity declare that no other sucf
hail storm has ever been experiencec
in that community. The farmers
whose crops suffered most have re
planted their crops.

church, the pastor presenting a gooc

of our Little River neighbors who art
