An article in the August 1932 Nevada Paper about the opening of the Milford Twp school for the fall term of 1932 states:
“....Transportation will be handled by 14 bus drivers over as many routes.
Bus drivers and their routes follow; Route 1, William Sowers; 2, Jeffrey Shold; 3, Oscar Cole; 4, Amil Twedt; 5, Rose Brodie; 6, Silas Thompson; 7, Frank Shearer; 8 Carl Cristy (probably Christy); 9, Sam Green; 10, Mrs Marvin Smith; 11, Ross Morfey; 12, Phillip Nelson; 13, Ray Beal; 14 William Sowers.”
This must be a record for the most routes and drivers and one of the few instances in Milford Twp where ladies were drivers. It might have been exclusively cars. The article is very clear that there were 14 routes. A few years later it dropped to 5 and then to 4 routes and 4 drivers with the four drivers responsible for obtaining a qualified substitute should the need arise.
Orville Larson, Lester Brooks ‘32, Earl Prescott, Oscar Cole, Ray Beal, Howard Olinger, Floyd Twedt ‘32, Amil Twedt ‘33, Lew Morris. The Twedts, Floyd and Amil, were cousins.
Seven in number: Mrs Julia Eller, Floyd Twedt, Orlene Twedt, H.W. Borts, Elmer Watson, Earl Day, and Marion Olinger.

The school bus drivers for the 1944-45 school year, as published in the paper, were Joe Honderd, Lendell Manley, Richard Stevenson, Wallace Tjelmeland and Robert Watson. We do not know if there were five routes or four routes with a substitute driver listed, however, because there was a bus number 5, it is probable there were 5 routes. Richard Stevenson undoubtedly holds the record for driving a bus as a student, as he had the job for three years.

“Several of the bus routes have been changed in order that these buses might serve the school and community more efficiently”
