There is not a person who is attending or has attended our school in the last 19 years that is without some tender rtiemory of Ray. He was not merely" an acquaintance, but one whose friendship will be cherished ia our hearts forever. We 'will remember always the little personal things he has done for us. He treated each of us as though we were something special to him. We were treated nice individually not simply as a bus load of kids. As a bus driver Ray Smoot has been with us for 19 yeai-s. He started driving in 1929, just four years after the high school was moved to its present site. In all of his 19 years of driving Ray missed a total of six days, with the exception of his ,recent illness. There is slight consolation for us in the fact that Ray is moving on into a. land of eternal peace and love. We know 'that he will be loved there as deeply and sincerely as he was loved here on earth. Ray Smoot will never die in our memories. He was a true friend.

' Thus his listeners learned that these basic principles, which are e,ssentially the Yielders of 'Beauty |,in^the Garden, must be used and applied at the- proper time—all the while working iri conjunction With Mother Nature-^if we; in turn; expect our gardens to yield beauty in the form of perfect fruit, flowers and vegetables. Albert Wilson is. an interesting speaker, and gave liis audience a clear picture of the praitical side of gardening. His program was enthusiastically received by the large number of members and guests who came to hear him. APRIE 17. 1948 DEEDS O O Barker et ux to H B Burkett et ux, land in T22N, R15W.
