Up to the time of the great Italian
disaster, the American Red Cross
was operating in Italy only through
an adisory commission and had un
dertaken little of special importance.
A telegram from the American am
l.rssador at Rome for food and
clothes reached the American Red
Cross in Paris in the middle of the
fcrenoon. By evening of the next
day they had bought in Paris mark
eta 24 carloads of supplies and had
started these supplies toward Italy.

'Observer," in last Saturday s l
sue of the Farmer, does not quite
grasp the situation. I do not auvo
cate giving up the growing of cot
ton-quite the contrary. tiut when
the small man who cultivated frm
5 to 15 acres tells you that he "only
broke even and had no return for
his and his families labor," it is
time to quit planting cotton on a
small scale. 1 have not met one, but
several, who told me that. What
the small farmer (for that matter
the big one too) -wants are crops
that help to build up the land and
which will feed the family and the
stock first-something growing all
the year round, and which builds up
the soil. I am glad to hear of the
large amount of fertilizers put on
the "Onville Rancf," and no doubt
that the crops grown there will be
the pride and envy of the whole
parish. I only wish that all the
farmers had so much stable manure
from well fed aninmals.
At a meeting of the Board of Di
rectors of the St. Tammany Fair As
sociation, held Wednesday, it was
agreed that a judges' stand would be
arranged for at the next fair, and
that all exhibits. must be brought to
the stand, and then they will be sure
to be judged on their merits and the
owners can be there and see for
themselves why this or that parj
ticular exhibit did or did not win.
It is only by comparison that a fair
award can be made.
While on the subject of parish fair,
it would be a splendid thing for every
farmer to have a share or two in
the stock. It would wipe out the
incubus of debt, and put the whole
thing on a strong financial basis. It
isa for the farmers special benefit and
they should be interested in it finan
cially. I feel sure that when the
average farmer sees it in the right
light none will hesitate to take a
share or two-they are only $1.00
each. The board of directors should
have a farmer or two on the board:

To the Honorable President and the
Members of St. Tammany i'a:rish
school Board:
%Gentlemen:--I beg to aubmhit the
foilowing report and staoemntet o
our school for tile quarter ending
March 31, 118.
The schools of the sevenoth ward
have completed their termi of seven
months. The friends of toe .',.d,
son\ille school, under the leadership
of their School Improu;ement i.eague
hal\e raised enough to pay their
eachers' salaries for the eighth and
ninth months. I regret tha: tilhe
amount raised has not been s!ilici-
ent also to continue the operating of
the teo school transfer,.
Unless the pupils who have 1rav
eled on these transfers attend school
for the rest of the year I fen,' they
will not be ready for promotion into
their next grades. I do desire, how
ever, to give credit to the ladies of
Madisonville, as well as their town
council, for the very commendable
interest taken in their school. Un
der the present conditions, and when
we consider the rapid growth of the
town caused by the new ship yards,
I feel positive that additional teach
ing force will be required there for
annther year.
The patrons of the FolsoIm school
have raised by private subscriptions
enough to continue their school for
two months beyond the term fur
nished by public funds. The at
tendance at the Pilgrim Rest school
fell to -below ten, recently, and I
gave my consent to the.-q.ioirrg of
the school for two weeks.` I trust
that we will be justified in reopen
ing it at the end of that time.
lJut as soon as we get time, I feel
that we should consider ways and
ne.,nse of hbilding a :we v ihouos at
Pearl River to take the pl.ae ) the
,one burned last falU U'n r pr,-
ent conditions I see nothing to do
other than asking the praplE of that
(i trict to float bonds, because the
oret el special tax will unt fturia.h
enough, even though we were to hold
it for two years.
Yoiu will remember that at our
last meeting you approlpriates i 1 2,00
for the purpose of repairing the toi
lets in the Slidell school. I have
secured bids for this work and find
the lowest ones will reach some over
$2000, or $800 more than your ap
propriation. For this reason no con
tract for this work has been award
ed. Feeling that the cracks in the
Slidell school building needed im
mediate attention, I secured Mr. W.
T. Nolan, of the firm of Nolan &
Torre, to go to Slidell and make an
inspection. The. following letter
eltter from him gives this recom
Dear Mr. Lyon:-From the in

terday we are of the opinion that
there is one point at least where the
lintel over the openings on the side
of the auditorium needs instant at
tention and if the temporary shoring
is done as suggested, viz., of pointing
in a 6x6 piece to rest on the present
brick cemented sill, leveling up the
same to provide a flat footing for
the bottom of the shore, wedging up
tightly under the shore, thete should
be no trouble for the present. This
remedy of course is only temporary
tn' character so as to provide against
an accident occuring.
We notice that most of the out
side corners of the building have set
tied and these foundations should be
Council of Defense Asks the
Elimination of Unnec
essary Work.
Co-Operative Delivery Sys
tem Saves Half or
More of Labor.
The State Council of Defense !s
uL.es the following war message to
the retail merchants of Louisiana:
You, as a retail merchant, are cill
edl upon to take a definite .part in a
:,flion wide program for making the
bcst use of m-n and materials in the
conduct of the war. The request
conies from the Commercial Econo
my Board of the Council of National
Defense. The Board asks you to
plan for the elimination of 4nneces,
sary work. Its recommendation'
,uill make it possible for y.M to
operate with smaller forces and sue
cer.fully meet your own labor prob
lems. When any of your employees
leave to join the fighting forces do
:it replace them if you can help it.
To replace them would mean taking
workers from farms, munition fac
tories, railroads, shipyards, or the
like, or from the already short sup
ply of workers available for these
vital industries. Instead, the board
asks you to try to get on with the
force you have left. In many cases
the reduction of delivery service will
make men available for other peal
Lions in your store from which men
have been taken for military or other
essential work.
As a moans of- doing this with the
leccnt pos;ible inconvenience to you
and your trade, the Commercial
lEconomy Board of the Council of
National Defense and this council.
urges the following:
1. That you reduce your deliv
eries to one a day over each route.
2. That the privilege of retuait
ing merchandise be limited to 3 lays.
3. That co-operative delivery sys
tems be established.
One delivery a day over each
route does not necessarily mean that
each automobile or wagon shall leave
the store only once a day. Each au
tomobile or wagon may make sev
eral trips a day, but each trip should
be over a different route.
These are definite concrete reo
ommendatlons that are being suc
cessfully applied to all classes of
business. The Commercial Econo
my Board also recommends that
merchants adopt plans of their own
to eliminate or curtail special deliv
eries. and the handling of needless
C. O. 1). orders.
Co-operative delivery systems com
monly save one-half and frequently
save more on delivery expenses when
compared with the operations of In
dividual systems. We will be glad
to supply literature on this subject
to merchants who are interested in
the plan.
If these recommendations have
not already been carried out in your
,:tore, you and all other retail mer
chants are urged to carry them out
without delay. It is of the greatest
importance that you do this and do
t at once. The object is directly
and solely to conserve manpower for
the nation's defense. By co-operat
ing you will help to win the war.
r•.inforced so as to provide against
any further sinking.
We would suggest that a plan and
specilications be prepared as soon as
c:,nvenient and bids should be ask
ed for from contractors with a view
of putting the building in proper
order, which would include the noW'
arrangements for the closets, fling
the plaster, and generally going over
the building and putting it in order.
We would be prepared to do this
at any time and shall be glad` to
hear from you about it at yo " eOr
Yours very truly,
I had the 6x6 supports placed in
the windows, as recommended by
Mr. Nolan, although .you understand
this is oply temporary relief. Fol
lowing out the suggestion of Mr. No
lan and with the approval of your
new member from the ninth ward,
I asked this same architect to make
a careful inspection of the inside as
well as the outside of this building
