McDonogh No. 4 School was rep
resented by twenty-one boys in Sat
urday's great patriotic Liberty Loan
parade. Despite the fact that the
rain was falling in torrents at the
time, these young citizens of Uncle
Sam's great and glorious domain,
assembled at the Canal St. Ferry
Landing at the appointed time and
proceeded across the river to the
place assigned to the schools before
the formation of the parade.
The rain still continued and there
followed a period of doubt as to

not. The Nation's motto. "In God
is Our Trust," seemed to be the

City, and soon that prayer was an
swered. The clouds lifted, the rain
stopped, and the parade was formed.
The boys of No. 4, at a given sig

signed place in the line and every
one of the number marched from
the beginning of the route to the
end. Cheer after cheer greeted
