"This question has been asked me
quite often. Thinking that some of
the readers of The Maupin Times
might be interested, I decided to
write of the benefits. District No.
85, known as the Criterion school,
has derived from such transporting.
''School District No. 85 and dis

is operated a distance of 20 miles.
