In the amounts deposited in the
School Banks for the month of De
cember, McDonogh No. 4 occupied
second place in all the New Orleans
schools, with $233.02 to its credit,
while Belleville was sixth with $112.93
to its credit.
In January McDonogh No. 4 was
fifth, depositing $35.94 and Belleville
was twelfth, depositing $11.29.
The different schools are working
hard in this contest. The school that
is instrumental in the opening up of
the largest number of new savings ac
counts between January first and the
end of the school year in June will be
presented with a silver loving cup.
New Christmas saving clubs accounts
will give the sdhool credit. So if
you have an account to open give it
to one of the pupils who will deposit
the folder in the school bank, and it
will in turn be deposited in any bank
whose name appears on the folder.
Every boy or girl who now has, or who
will open a savings account with any
of the banks whose names appear on
the folder can become a member of
the Public School Savings Club. There
are no dues or fees.
Each week a bulletin shows the
amount deposited by the different
schools, the leader being credited with
a red star. The school having the
largest number of red star credits at
the end of the June season will re
ceive the loving cup.

The regular January meeting of
that body was held Tuesday. Jan.
14th, at 7:30 p. mu. Although not
many members were present, tile .at
tendance was satisfactory, when \\,e
consider the amount of sickness pre

We were pleased to have Mrs. A.
J. Amuedo, our organizer with us
on this occasion and hope to ssee
her at every future meeting. Sick
ness in her home caused her absence a
from meetings. As chairlady of the
Committee on By-Laws, she read the
results of the work of that committee.
The By-Laws were adopted as read.

A set of Holmes" Travelogues,
consisting of thirteen volumes, lea

dollars. but these works are well
worth the money, and will serve as c
a great source of help to both teach- v
:rs and pupils.
It was decided to have social meet
ings at regular Intervals and` our
next regular meeting will be one of
that kind. We hope. to have a very r
large attendance of both fathers and
mothers on that occasion, as we
know everyone will have a pleasant
time and friendlier relations will be
established between the members.
Mr. F. Henning addressed the
meeting and in the course of his re
marks, he deplored the fact that
very few fathers are interested
enough in the welfare of their sons
to attend meetings. He said that
the work of the Public Schools was J,
for the welfare of the nation and cl
that it was the foundation of every- s4
thing that means the uplifting of de
this great democracy. He said that
