Baby Born in Palestine Bus Gets Life Transportation Pass

Download PDF for this date

The Egged Transportation Company, Jewish-owned cooperative bus system, set what may become an expensive precedent today when it presented a life-time pass to a baby girl born in one of its busses. The child was born to Mrs. Aaron Stricker, Kfar Haim, in a bus en route to the Beilinsohn Hospital here. Her parents named her Egedah in honor of the bus line.
