Highway Dea!h Toll Is Growing Hopes for an improved laighway deatl record in Washington this year are beginning to fade. Wash- ington State Patrol Chief Roy A.

But the higher .,nr of traffic d;ath in .p- nu may threaten to wipe o{zt the gain.

Sun- day morning he turned the little yellow bus, seating capacity 7, over to George Vaite. clerk of the school board. On Saturday eve- ning more than 150 Islanders, former Islanders, and mainlanders met at tile hall for a potluck sup- per and as John and his ever faithful wife Beulah entered they all sang "For he's a jolly good fellow". John took his "Mr. Bus Mans" job seriously, always requiring dis- cipline, yet filling the childrens' minds and hearts with Harstine lore, stories of the earlyday set- tlers, of the first ferry, having come to the Island in 1910 John knew all the "old tin]ers" and of the time there were three schools on the island. Manys the time John had to chop his way through, always mindful that down the road a school child was waiting in the cold, snow or wind, know- ing that any minute John would be there for he always made it through. The-- femW crew would warra up the ferry, load on the cars, knowing that John. with his ever-precious c,rgo wouldn't be more than a minute or two late. AS JOHN entered the hall he saw all the faces familiar to hlm through the years, hqends neigh- bors. and many of "his kidS". A large sign on the wall read "Con- gratulations John on your reure- ment'. The main hall was deco- rated with flowers and greens. The table was decorated with greens, flowers and tapered candles. The potluck hmch was sewed smor- gasbord style. The dessert table was decrated much the same. and in the middle .was a full sheet cake with a yellow school bus in the middle. It was surrounded by homemade cakes, pies, jello and ice cream. Miss Cheryl Meeks and Miss Cindy Wait served the des- sert. The dining room was decor- ated with one large bouquet of spring flowers donated and ar- ranged by Mrs. A1 Pridham. Miss Ruth Winger and Miss Teddy Travis were in charge of the col- his recording machine and played dinner music. After dinner he brought out his accordion and played dance music. Many of "John's kids" were able to attend.

Cards came from Mary Carnes Sorrensen, Then Saegcr; Jon Fessler and Ron Johnson, who were unable to attend. John was presented a miniature yellow school bus filled with mo- ney given to him by his many friends. Sunday morning as we drove by we saw one small school bus proudly mounted on John's mailbox.
