From the November 16, 1922 Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:
School Bus Here.
The school bus for hauling the pupils of Union Star school into town arrived last week and was put into use immediately. Oto Riley, who was the lowest bidder for driving the bus, has been making the trip twice daily without any trouble.
The basement of the M. E. Church has been re-arranged and the seventh grade pupils are being taught there by Mrs. Fred Peoples.
