Two special trains, with an eventual load of 2,500 school children and teachers, will leave the Santa Fe depot at Iola at 7:30 a.m. tomorrow for Kansas City. There the students will be taken on a tour of all the principal points of interest. It is estimated that between 400 and 500 school children will board the train at Iola. The trains will have picked up school children in towns south of here and will pick up students at towns from here to Kansas City. Those taking the trip are principally rural school children but anyone can use the trains at the special excursion fares.
