! Housing Office Gives Rides, Too By TOMMY HOLBEIN Battalion Staff Writer “It may sound strange, but whenever a campus organization needs transportation, they usually come to the Housing Office to get it,” said Allan M. Madely, assist ant Housing Office manager. Madely said this was accomp lished through “Operation Bus,” a system through which the Hous ing Office offers transportation to clubs teams and other organiza tions wishing to make trips. Four Station Wagons “At present, we have four sta tion wagons and one 12-passenger bus at our disposal, which are stored in the Department of Buildings and College Utilities,” said Madely. “We charge eight cents a mile for using the station wagons and 12 cents a mile for the buses. The Housing Office pays all expenses for the trips out of this charge.” “Usually, the vehicles are used by judging teams on their fre quent trips to contests and their respective departments pay the charges on the transportation,” said Madely. “We almost always have at least several of them in use and quite often all .of them are rented at one time. For ex ample, we have had as many as four station wagons in Chicago together on one trip.” Have Traveled Far “The longest distance one of our vehicles has traveled, has been to Portland, Ore., made by the Range and Forestry Club, vdiich traveled there between semesters in the 12-passenger bus,” said Madely.

THURSDAY 7:30 MSC BALLROOM ADMISSION 25c He said that the bus has been to Washington, D. C., on several oc casions and at least once or twice each year, the vehicles are used by judging teams to go to Chicago. Madely said the vehicles must be driven by staff members and can only be rented to groups con nected with the college. “Operation Buses” began after World War II when the freshmen were quartered at Bryan Air Force Base and needed transportation to and from classes,” said Madely. “At this time, the college had four 32-passenger buses, but the need for these diminished. Even tually, they were put to other service in the college system and several of them are still left and in use today,” said Madely. In 1948, the first 12-passenger bus was ordered, and in 1952, two more were specially made by a firm in Arkansas which specializes in turning cars into these buses, said Madely. He said another bus was purchased by the college in 1959.
