Gosselink, Scrgeant-at-.\inis, Lloy<le Kiser, Arranging Bus Routes for Schools According to law retjuests for all bus routes must bo outlined and presented before the County Board of Education before August 1. The Pella board is busy thi^ week establishing its bus routc^ in Marion, Maha.ska, and Jasiici counties. Inter-county ajiplica-tions must be approved by the hoard of the home county first. The request then goes to the sending county. The State Department must give final approval before new bus routes or changes can be establishc<l. Jaiper, Mahaalca In so far us Pella is concerned there are few conteniplatc<l changes in Marion County over last year's service. Some I'outes may be broken down, but they will cover approximately the same territory. In Jasper County, the board is asking for permission to I'e-establish a route on the Sully road to the Lynn Grove school, much tho same as was approved last year. Call to Parenta Mahaska County service may have to be altered somewhat on account of new pupils and patrons a.sking for service. One change asks for service north of the Black Oak school on highway 103, north to the road about one-fourth mile east of the Wheatgrow school. Another request for service in the Olivet neighborhood south and west of Leighton is under consideration. Interested parents arc invited to see Superintendent Buerkons or Martin Heerema, Chairman of the Transportation Committee before Monday. Maasdam Invited to Hollywood to Appear On Television Show It was in February of 1051 that Leonard Maasdam, whose farm home is north of Sully about three miles, appeare<l on the radio program, "Double or Nothing" in Hollywoo<l. He won forty dollars by just being himself and, more than that, he won the frien<lship of Walter O'Keefe who puts on the program. Mr. O'Keefe has not forgotten Mr. Maasdam's performance. Now there is a new development. Mr. O'Keefe has invited Mr. Maasdam to Hollywood for a television show to be done the evening of Saturday, July 28lh. The show will be filmed to he shown later over a number of stations. O'Keefe's letters to Mr. Maasdam do not disclose the name of the show or who is sponsoring it. Maasdam thinks it might be a new show to make its initial bow with this first telec.-ist. Lcavinf; Today r,<'onard accepted the invitat;i-tiiin and will board a jilane in Di's Moines for Hollywood today, July L'f'ith, will rehearse for tho show Friday and be on the show .Saturday evening. All his exiicnsca will be paid and he will get a handsome fee in addition. Mr. O'Keefe urged Mr. Maasdam to briijg with him some of his widely-known sorghum and undoubtedly he will be given an opportunit.v to plug it-perhaps not on the TV sliow-probably over the radio. l\lr. Maasdam will lake some IV'lla bologna and cookies along too, and if given the opportunity, will tell the West Coast about Tulip Time and her unique products. He will visit a relative in California the week end and return early next week.
