School Transportation j jR gjjj FAVORED parrot's Swearing Saves Woman
Transportation has always been one
of the largest items in the budget for
sehool expenses in this district. In
the last two years seven thousand and
nine hundred and ninety six dollars
have been spent for trausportalon a
lone. More than that was voted In the
two budgets. That the school board
should earnestly consider reducing
this expense, is to be expected. They
have reasoned that if an Individual
could pay for a bus, operate it and
make a profit, the school district
could own buses, operate theih and
Have money. Further, that when the
buses are paid for. the cost of trans
portation can be very materially les
sened us the district will not continue
paying for buses every two years.
The more progressive school dis
tricts own their own buses, and in
the State of Washington this is gener
ally the case.
There is enough money already vot
ed to pay for one bus and furnish
transportation the remainder of the
fiscal year which is as long as the
money is supposed to last. The am
ount alloted in the budget for next
year is less than that estimated for
the present year, and the budget as a
whole is smaller while allowing for
the construction of a fire-proof garage
to house the buses.
It is entirely within the priviledge:
of the school board to furnish trans
Jf 'rtation in anyway that seems bant

FOR OLYMPIA SESSION
Seattle, Wash In asking the mem !
hers of the state legislature to signify;
their preferences as to the time for1
holding the special session, hereto !
fore scheduled for the month of No-j
vember, Governor Hartley seems to
have made it certain that there will be
M session until January. The gover
nor has said that he would defer to;
the wishes of the majority of the
membership; and there is no question1
whatever that the majority In favor
of waiting until after the Christmas
holidays is almost strong enough to
make it unanimous.
Governor Hartley's decision to con !
suit the senators and representatives
on this matter was not reached until
after he had heard from a good many
of them, directly and Indirectly. Pro :
test against convening in November, :
as planned by the governor when the
regular session of last winter was cur-!
tailed, generally was based on person '
si business and professional reasons. i
