How different this method is from
the old thnt obtained in North Car

On the run from Crabtrec and
Iron Duff to Clyde there are two
blisses that bring each day about
sixty children to that school. Cen

Bethel high school as a center,
three busses are in active service
bringing from Sunburst, Cruso and

children to the high school at that
