Monday, October 26, 1942 I slept l^te
and I had to hurry to catch the bus.
As soon as I got to the highway, it
rained hard, I stood in the car shed.
The longer I waited, the -more it rainei
Soon I saw the bus coming and I ran
to cathh it. When I got to school,
the second period had ended.
tardiness cAused me to inake a "D" in
history. I would advise all bus
drivers to try to be on time so I can
make a passing gr.-ide.

I have been seriously inconvenien

the roads have been very bad. They
are very narrow it is hard for one
automobile to pass another.
As we were on our way to school

stuck. The driver tried to move
the bus. When he-did that, the bus
slid over in a ditch. On Monday we
had a very interesting French Lesson,
Not only did I miss the French class,
but I also missed all of the classes

I was seriously inconvenienced
last week, due to the conditions of
roads. Th^; road we travel is very
bad. It was so bad that last monday
just as v»e were going to get over a
bad place, our-ous driver met a car.
There was only rooiii enough to pass,
so as ho was trying to give the car
room enough to pass, he slipped in
a ditch. All the larger boys tried
to help get the bus out. Finally after
putting rocks and brush-under the
wheels, they got the bus out. VJlien
we got to school thcit day, the 1:15
period had ended.
