I was a Traffic Boy at Argonned Elementary School from 1947 through 1950. I was Captain of the squad and had many privilges such as: handing out the rain gear, caps and/or belts (I got first pick of the best or new ones), handing out the weekly "reward" to squad, if they had no demerits - it was good for a free pass to the 4-Star Theater for just the tax, $.03 at that time, got to wear the Captain's badge, and lastly, got to lead the squad, as school flag bearer, in the annual Safety Parade in Kezar Stadium. Yes, it was a good life.
