1 PUPIL'S HONESTY PAYS DIVIDENDS FOR WHOLE CLASS

Honesty pays.

Just ask Sela Heimuli, a second-grader at Mountain View Elementary School in east Salt Lake County, who on a class outing last month found $100 on the charter bus she was riding and turned it in.Sela - and her classmates - were rewarded with a free bus charter courtesy of Lewis Bros. Stages to the field-trip destination of their choice. They picked the Children's Museum of Utah, and on Tuesday will cash in by devoting part of their school day to the journey.

The $100, lost by a passenger on a previous charter, was handed over by Sela to a Lewis Bros. driver who was piloting a March 27 class excursion. He turned it into company managers, who issued a heartfelt thanks.

"This incident," stated a Lewis Bros. press release, "renewed our faith that honesty still can be found even in the hands of a small child."
