School patrol is set up in Evans
The newly organized school patrol of Evans has an important job before them this year.
An example of this is shown each time the bus stops at places where children must cross the highway. The patrolmen must cross the highway before a child does to be sure there is no danger.
The bus does not start again until the child is safe and the patrolmen re-enters the bus. A warning to teen-age as well as adult drivers: It is a serous offense to pass a school bus while the stop sign is out.
