A' FRIDAY, JANUARY 21, 193S. THE DAILY COURIER, COMNELLSVILLE. PA. PAGE FIFTEEN. WHARTON STUDENTS WILL GET FREE TRANSPORTATION UNIONTOWN, Jan. 21.--Instead | of thumbing their way to the Uniontown schools or traveling in private machines, students of Wharton township, beginning Monday will receive free bus rides to and from their homes. . This decision came Tuesday night by unanimous vote of the school board. It was voted to extend Sheldon Randlot a contract calling for payment of $225 a month for the transportation of the students. Of this amount the board will pay oniy one-fourth, the remainder of the obligation being borne by the State Board of Education. Next year there will be a further reduction in the cost. By wire and registered mail the State Revenue Department was notified of the decision of the school board. Mr. Randlot at once rushed his fee for the $45 bus license, which is expected within the next two or three days. It is hoped to be able to ..start the free transportation of students by Monday. The schedule calls for the start of the bus at 7 A. M. from the Dinner Bell Inn, following the route to Farmington, EllloUsville, along the Furnace road to Chalk Hill and Braddock's Grave and then directly to the Uniontown High School, arriving at 8:30 o'clock. The one student attending Benjamin Franklin Junior High School will be transferred to LaFayette at which the bus also will make a stop. At present between 38 and 40 boys and girls from Wharton township are attending the local schools. With free 'transportation provided, the number is expected to increase. The capacity of the motor bus is 45. High school tuition also is met by the board under provisions of the motor code. . . Members of the school board asserted today that the added expense of ths bus contract will not increase the millage. In fact a move has been inaugurated to cut the taxes for next year. ·' .

Battle Creek, Michigan, Railroad Absolved In Two Accidents Special to The Courier. UNIONTOWN, Jan. 21.--A coroner's jury absolved the Baltimore Ohio Railroad Company and its em- ployes of all responsibility for the deaths of two men, whose bodies were found along the tracks. Mystery surrounded one fatality and no evidence pointed conclusively to the fact that the victim had been struck by a train. In returning a verdict in the death of Andy Ruslco, 55, a coke drawer of Outcrop, whose body was found on the tracks the night of January 1, the jury decided: | . "That, the man came to his death from/a fractured skull, his body being found near Outcrop on the right of way of the Baltimore Ohio Railroad. The cause of.the jtracture resulting in his death is not known. We absolve the Baltimore Ohio and Western Maryland ^Railroad companies, together with their em- ployes, from all responsibility." ' :h the death of Mitro'Sutyak, 56, Umontown, which occurred in November, the coroner's jury found the man came to his death "by being struck by a Baltimore Ohio passenger train while trespassing. We find the accident was unavoidable in so far as the Baltimore Ohio Railroad Company and its employes are concerned and absolve it and them from all blame for the accident."
