Ideam in a Profession Are Immutable
and There Are Some Teachers In
tle State Who, Should Be Do
ing Something Else.
Natchitoches, La. - L. J. Alleman,
secretary of the Louisiana Teachers'
Association has issued an appeal as
follows to the leaders of education in
'"The executive committee has met 4
and planned for a meeting of the L. T.
A., to be held in Alexandria, April 7, s
8 and 9. State Superintendent Harris'
is now at work carrying out the 1
wishes of the executive committee by
providing distinguished speakers and
'musical numbers for the program.
This will be a fine meeting in every
"We have not held a meeting since
1918, and it is up to us to make this
the banner year both from -point of
enrollment and attendance. It is up
to us to convince the people of Louis
iana the confidence they have placed
in us. We can do this in only one
way-to strengthen ourselves for the
nerve-racking occupation in which we
are engaged. The L. T. A. has always
been and, I believe, will always be a
great factor in the professional uplift
of our teachers. The enrollment has
consisted in the past of the more pro
fessional teachers of the state-the
one out of five who did not need the
good influence of the organization so
much as the other four who stayed at
'"There are now Perhaps 7,000 white
teachers in the state, about 1,000 en
roll annually, and perhaps 800 attend
the meetings. This is not the best
showting and I beleve is a reflection
on somethinr, somebody, somewhere.
If the associlation needs modification
1A us make the change; if the teach
ers have not the teacher's spirit then
it Is up*to the leaders to see to it
,that a change takes place there. This
should be done before it is too late.
You can do your part:
First. By securing the enrollment
ef every teacher associated with you
in advance of the meeting regardless
of whether the teacher can attend this
particular meettng or not.
"Second. By encouraging as large
an attendane* as possible from among
your assoelates.
"Third. Assisting them to secure
proper aecommodations in Alexan
IPhurth. By distributing from time
to time among your teachers the eir
eilers issued frem this office.
S"Plfth. By imprsintag upon their
young minds that ideals in a profes
sela are immutable, and that there
are some teachers i the state who
oegt to be fSoowing some other call
ing 'hey are brlht enough and
w+all-be; la they 'have not the right
eprsi, and they eed help:"

Titbits That Have Won Popular
ity in America.
"Turron," a Christmas Delicacy, is De
clared to Be Unsurpassed in the
Line of Sweetmeats.
"Sea sleeves, each in his ink," reads
the quaint lubel on the little cans that
bring us one of the queer harvests of
the Mediterraneau. 'lThe ink is the
protective fluid of the calaunare, but
the chef turns it to use as a .sauce.
i'en-and-ink fish is another namllle for
this small squid, because his rluer
shell looks like a quill len. Sea
sleeves are a deli'lcy that one would I
have to get used to, like snalils, bwhite
bait, and craw fish, but those who are
fond of thema rather pride tlhemaerlves
upon it. They can be found In all
Spanish delicatessen shops, says a
writer in the New York Evening Post.
But Spain's masterpiece, many
think, is turron-a nougat lucontpar
ably delicate and rich, made troln
nuts, fruits, and honey, its sweetness
varying somewhat with each of the
places which are celebrated for its
mianufacture: Alicante, Valencia and u
Murcia. Turrones are in famous de
mnand at the holidays, and Spanish
groceries in New York are seldom able
to fill all their orders, for this is a
Christmas sweet par excellence. An
epicure has called turrones "a sweet
meat delicious beyond words." The
most popular of the several kinds is
probably Turron Alicaute. Others are
Turron Jijona, Turrou Yema, and Tur
run Mauxupan.
Hearts of palm might be thought
a tragic delicacy by the lover of trees,
for every 'alad made of this aspar
agus-like edible means the death of a
mountain palm. They come from Al
giers, as well as from Spain, and the
supply seems to hold out, but conser
vation does not concern those lands
as yet.
The true globe artichoke, alcacho
fas at natural, keeps its unique flavor,
though it journeys from Spain in cans.
It is a portion of the immature, this
tie-like Ilower, violet or white, and in
no way resembles the more prosaic
Jerusalem artichoke which looks like
a potato. Artichokes grow wild in the
f south of Europe, but they never have
a been cultivated here except by
. wealthy epicures, and though purchas
g able in season at the finer markets,
our public treats them rather formally
--for a dish so appetising.
Down on Pearl street there is a
large Spanish grocery where all these
e Spanish allurements and many others
it may be bought, and where you will
y notice in particular the very aristo
i cratic meats that do not disdain the
. tin can-partrldges with trufles and
d mushrooms, stuffed hare, Catalonian
" sausages, "Galician dinner," fowls
prepared with sweet red peppers. And
then the quince paste, apricot paste,
t" dried Malaga figs, almond cheese, and
l Spanishl wafers.
