soon.the purchase price ought to come uli
out of the fund provided for equip- so

do without the music. Miss Rogers Pr
could not teach unless furnished a at
piano. This is the situation: The an
piano has been bought, $100 has al

WOODLAWN NOTES. tm
The weather conditions as of last et
week still prevail with the exception of te
having been favored by a few cool lP
days which helped, to a large extent,
to stop the sprouting of rice in the o0
shocks. The' majority of the farmers zi
are still keeping themselves busy cut
ting what rice is left standing, when 31
the ground conditions permit. We sin
cerely hope to see beter weather con4
" ditions, for not only are these daily
downpours detrimental to the farming
industry, but because in some places A
roads are becoming impassable, pre- 1
venting the farmers from bringing the v
rice to the warehouse preparatory to
' shtpping. f
Mr. John Miller who sometime past c.
came' out of the sanitarium at Lake
Charl.s, seemingly better, was advised 1
to go to Hot Spings, Ark., to regain
his health. His brother, Edward Mil
ler, and Alford Pousson accompanied
him there last week.
Mr. Dan D6escher of Lake Charles,
formerly a resident of this community, ,
came here on business last week. a
Mr. Clerefo Corbello was a business I
visitor to Jennings last Monday.
lr. Henderson Guzman was an t
iowa visitor last Sunday. .
The roads and ~weather did not pre- t
vent a good crowd from attending the r
dance at Iowa last Wednesday night. ,
Four new enrollments were record- i
ed in school during the week. These
new pupils are from other sections, i
and therefore add to our total enroll
ments. This makes the heaviest en- t
rollment of the school and speaks for
the necessity of equipping the school
for these pupils who are coming in.
This school -is carrying eight grades,
ald three teachers are insufficient. As
an example there are torty-lve .pupils
in the Kintergarten grades up to the
second grade. This school is also car
rying more hours of actual teaching
than any other school of its kind in the
parish in order to give the proper at
tention to the students. Otherwise the
school Is running very well, with'but
few failures for the past month.

"Welsh is giving evidence of becoming fir
a great highway. Development work
is proceeding on numerous links in w'
the system; concrete, brick and other th
paved road beds are building, bridges Sc
are nearing the construction stage, an
e andil many bad spots are being smooth- Po
Welsh is vitally interested in this er
Shighway for the vogue of the overland Vi'

º- Over $100,000,000.00 in bonds have be
e been voted. qr are in process of voting,
considerable portions of which are for PI
highway work on this Trail. Y
At San Antonio November 14th and th
15th, the General Annual Convention Ti
1- will be held of interested workers and bi
1- members along the 2900. miles of high- st'
it ivay. These conventions are not re
stricted to memhers hut are open to
te everyone Interested in seeing the fc
ig Trail developed. A de( nration from ft
," here means one more impulse toward w
hringing this section to the front. ii
d- The central offices of the Old Span- g
ish Trail Association are at San An- ti
tonio, and in every community where
live leaders can be found members are
being enlisted and a local club is being
y_ formed. All the power of centralized
er effort today is being put behind the
ve Old Spanish Highway to build it up
nt and to beautify it.
of As a tourist highway it is without
n, a peer. It is lined with historical as
y- sociations from end to end. As a great
th military highway so much discussed
it embraces San Diego, the military
it, and naval headquarters of California;
,,_ San Antonio, the greatest military
Scenter in the United States and the
gateway to Mexico; New Orleans, the
ed central southern military outlet; and
la- Pensacola, the southern naval base.
Historically it reaches back 400
)v. years to the fascinating exploits of
the Spanish cavalier and the herdtc
ministrations of the Franciscan Friars
-and this history like the Trail spans
the continent. St. Augustine in Flori
s da is the oldest city in the United
es States. Santa Fe in New Mexico is
M. next. San Diego in Califofnia marks
the beginning of California nd of the
white conquest of the Pacific coast.
'as Southern California, Arizona, New
tes Mexico, and Texas are old mission
centers and many of these wonderful
DV' Mission buildings still stand along the
Trail. In Louisiana is the romantic
country of Evangeline and New Or
leans, the "Paris of America," not to
mention Welsh and the other more
modern but still interesting communi
ant ties. Then the Mississippi Gulf coast
th, and Mobile, Pensacola and Tallahassee
rth the Suwanee river, Jacksonville, St.
Augustine and Tampa, in Florida.
It is the trail for the traveler and
m- one that will mellow his heart every
of day he travels it. -
