State Announces New Tests For All School Bus Drivers A state-wide ruling governing a new type, compulsory test for all school bus drivers, which be comes effective August 1st, will not affect the three East Cleveland operators for some time to come, according to Board of Education officials. A qualifying clause in the offi cial directive, which was issued in Columbus in mid-May, states that the tests will be mandatory “upon expiration of the chauffers’ licen ses now .being held.” Licenses of Mrs. Angelene Fran cis, who operates the station wagon for special students, and Fenton Moore and Burt E. Skeel, who al ternate in driving the large school bus in various outlying sections of the city, do not expire for approxi mately another year. According to the ruling by the Ohio Department of Highway Sa fety, the required examination, to be given, by state department rep resentatives, will go s&veral steps further than the previous regula tions and requirements. Tests will include a written questionnaire on knowledge of motor vehicle laws, a written test on highway warning signs, a com plete vision test, rules pertinent to school bus operation, and a driv ing test in the school bus the driv er expects to operate. The ruling is a precautionary outgrowth of a Highway Safety Department survey listing more than 340 school bus accidents in 1954-55, with injuries to drivers and children totaling 134. “Launching this program of ex amination and re-examination of all school bus drivers,” states de partment director U.

Postscripts On The Picnic The car winner was about as flabergasted at suddenly becom ing the owner of that beauty of a Nash station wagon as was George Nelson at receiving this year’s citizen award. That could not have happened to a finer person. The new plan, the calling of the name instead ef the number on the stub, speeded the giving away of the prizes at this year’s picnic. Folk’s didn’t have to hurriedly check fist fulls of stubs. There was time for that when they reached the checkers’ table on the platform. Too bad for the first name for the Laundromat. But rules must be followed to keep the record straight. Better luck next time. This annual picnic for all pres ent And former East Clevelanders and their friends is one of the best community builders. Folks who play together as well as work together, are the best of citizens. Two few towns in metropolitan areas now have this type of out ing. May it never cease here. Men who work on the picnic com mittee for the first time are amazed at the reception they re ceived when calling on profession als, industrial or business men for prize or money contributions. This first actual experience in partici pating in a community affair tells the story of the success of our community endeavors a keen sense of responsibility to the good of their community. Newcomers who get into various groups comment on the same re-action. And anyone, who does not have this community spirit, must acquire it to become a genuine East Clevelander. PS Seated on a bench during the afternoon, chatting with friends was Mrs. Cora Arn. Her 26th time to attend this picnic. As usual the “Lost and Found Children” lent interest as the wee ones were brought before the plat form mike for parents to see. One little lady told Mr. Nelson her name was Debby, and when asked where she lived, replied “At our house.” She also proceeded to give the names of her neighbors.

A 22-year-old young man who does not have a car is the still excited owner of the Nash Rambler black and red station wagon, the grand award at the East Cleveland 1956 picnic. When the young man stepped to the platform as his name was called, he was too dazed to scarely speak and, despite the cool evening, he was perspiring like a Turk, as the saying goes. He had placed two auto stubs in the con tainer in the Log Cabin that after noon. Mr. Hutnik, a painter by trade, resides at 1196 Bender ave. and is employed by Adolph Butela, a painting contractor in Pama. He served with the Coast Guard for two and a-half years.
