VOL XXVII FEBRUARY 19. 1920 No. 41
WAS IT A CARNIVAL?
The Mardi Gras Carnival for 1920 will be remembered as having
been far from the standard of the entertainment given our visitors on
previous years. It would have been much more to our credit to have
had no parades at all than to give this year's visitors one parade and then
y this was our carnival for 1920.
We congratulated the Rex organization for their splendid and sue
Sesful effort in havnig done their share toward perpetuating this popular
and time honored custom of celebrating the close of the pre-Lenten season.
It Rex did its share toward the 1920 Mardi Gras celebration, could not the
other organizations of Comas, Momus and Proteus have done as well? But
wait, is it Just to criticize these other organizations, who furnish all of
these parades from funds from their private purses? Well, that is a
deliate questlbn, but we may say in our defense that they have made
it a eustom for years, and the New Orleans public expected a regular Mardi
Gras with the usual fine parades and not a bobtail affair for which we
are kept busy explaining and jpologising to our visitors. As to the
weather we lay the blame to Doctor Cline.
Well, what was called Mardi Gras, is over and business will now
ave Its inning for the next forty-six days before Easter, provided all of
the strikers go back to work, rand the prices of food and material will be
have tar awhile.

Although Amerlean silk manufacturers never before have had to pay
su high i prces for raw silk, they imported more of it, not including
"waste silk,' in 1919 than in say preceding year-probably more than
300,000,0 worth. The meet of it came froa Italy, China and Japan.
-I the frst ten months of the year Italy seat a $11,000,000 worth, China
l$45,00,00 worth and Japan $194,000,000 worth. From all other coun
tries eembined we got less than $1,000,00 worth.
