George Gilliam: So how long was that bus ride?

Donald Byers: That bus ride was probably about -- I guess it was 45 minutes to -- about 45 minutes or so, to an hour.

George Gilliam: Each way?

Donald Byers: Each way.  If you participated in an activity at Burley, then you have to catch your home-- ride home in there because there was no bus to take you home, so you were responsible for getting home.  After your practices, football, baseball, or basketball practices, and so forth, you were responsible for getting home.

George Gilliam: So how did you get home?

Donald Byers: We caught rides with different people who worked in Charlottesville and lived in that area.
