SiImhiI Truck Demonstration,
A splendid demonstration of the
practicability of trucks for carrying
the children into school was given
last Friday, when Superintendent of
Public Instruction, Mr. Ray Funder
burk. with a driver, came over and
gathered some forty of the children
of the Walker's school district in a
big school truck, bringing them from
there over to Waxhaw and back to
their homes. ' Mr. Funderburk met
with a number of the citizens of the
Walker's school district on that day.
and discussetj with them that ques
tion of consolidating the Waxhaw,
Walkersvllle, and other . adjoining
school districts. It is understood that
it Is not considered advisable to con
solidate the schools, unless at least
three of the adjoining districts about
the Waxhaw district will atree to the
consolidation, as it will not pay to
purchase the truck to bring In the
children of only one more district.
Th? County Board of Education is
reluctant to pass a resolution to con
solidate any district with another one,
unless a majority of Its citizens fa
voi such actions, and no such step
will be taken, unless it becomes ap
parent that sentiment for the con
solidation is sufficiently strong in the
districts to be affected by the change.
