Before another .issue of the Demo
crat reaches you we will have started
upon our journey through 1923. What
the aew year holds for us or ar
friends we are unable to say-it may
be that good fortune will greet us on Cer
every corner, and on the other hand vice
sorrow and misfortune may come in- at I
to our lives. But suffice us to say can
that we will begin the journey with plat
the determination to do our best to do mal
better that which we have to do. tim
We arc Lrateful for the part you
have contributed to our success, and it
is always our earnest desire to merit a d
your support. We want to give the
our readers a paper that is worthy of r
the respect of every good citizen; we wit
want to advocate those things that will s
make a better parish and better corn- re
munities in the parish, believing that Thy
success comes only to those who spend cor
their efforts trying to achieve higher eni
and nobler things.
We believe that our parish will make
great strides of progress during the AK
next few years along civic and com
mercial lines revealing to us many un
developed resources. And too, we look V
for better times financially during the Ser
next 12 months-everything indicates a tric
greater prosperity. The demand for Del
labor is increasing; the demand for sho
raw materials is increasing; cotton legg
prices are advancing, and the people in cap
general have settled down to real twe
business, apparently with a determi- plo
nation to go ahead. All these things ce
are indications of brighter and better
WVe shall begin the new year wishingth
for everyone much happiness andbu
great success, doing our bit towardsda
the advancement of the best interestsca
of our parish and state. w

New Orleans Stage
Biggest Drunk Eye? t
Ncw Orleans, La-, Dec. 23.- u
Christmas booze was plentiful f

The Rev. A. H. Ziemer, local i

How about this for openly defying
the law of the State and the United

Old timers in Arcadia say that
Christmas was the quietest ever. No
one saw a man drunk or drinking, so
far as we have been able to learn,
No one was arrested for being drunk
or having whisjcey in their possession,
and it was indeed a day of peace and:
rest and clean celebration.
New Orleans is a part of the United
States and the State of Louisiana, the

The test performance of a new
Curtiss Pursuit Plane has caused a
sensation in the Army and Navy ser

- at Detroit, in which a new all-Ameri
ay can motor finished in the first four
places, it has been expected that
military planes of a super-type would

In many respects, this aeroplane is
a departure from precedent. It uses
the same Curtiss motor used in the as

with wing radiators, the most radical he
advance in the art of cooling a motor
since 1917, and which reduces the tl
resistance of the air almost to zero. A
These features were expected. The V

ARE COLLEGE DEGREES it
ASSETS ARE LIABILITIES? d
Washington, Dec. 28.-(Capital News tl
Service).-The Director of the Dis- I
trict of Columbia Public Employment r,
Department has published statistics c
showing that comparatively few col- n
lege men who apply for positions are e
capable of earning more than ten or r
twelve dollars a week, and that em
ployers prefer non-degree men for ii
clerical work. c
"It is almost impossble to place a v
college graduate in a position owing to t
the lack of qualifications needed in the ii
business and industrial world to.
I day," said the director. "These appli- '
cants want executive positions for
which they are not fitted and which i
are very few.
'On the other hand, the employers I
don't want college graduates. They
state that employees of this kind are
unfitted for the work and are always
r expecting increases, which they are not
deserving. They are very unsatisfac
tory, and it is a rarity that they last
any length of time."
Records of a week show that more
than 100 persons the department was
unable to place had received degreees
from some of the most prominent col
leges in the country. The few whom
the department accommodated ac
cepted positions of a clerical nature at
salares beginning at $5 a week. Ap
plicants with a business or technical
training and those willing to accept
laboring or domestic positions were
Educators who discuss the report say
that the fault is not wtih the colleges
or the degrees, but the man. They
contend that a college degree is an
indication of its possessor having spent
a certain amount of time, and obtain

credits by acquiringg a certain amount
of knowledge, but not necessarily
ng knowledge desired by business houses
