D. H. MASON - - Editor and Proeprietor Entered at the Covington postomce as Second-Class Maer SHALL WE GO FORWARD OR BACK IN THE WOODS. When the French troops, at the battle of Chateau Thierry, passed to the rear of the American troops that were supporting them, the Ameri cans were asked, "How much longer do you think you are going to stay there?" They answered, "We'll stay here till we get orders to go for ward." And they got that order and they went forward and they never stopped till the war ended. Now its up to St. Tammany parish to ask the same question about our roads. Are the people going to give the order to go forward? There's on doubt about stopping here till the order is given to go forward with the roads. We can't get away and nobody can get to us. The question is, are we going to have the same kind of pluck that our boys at the front had and that won the admiration of the world It takes money and it may seem a big undertaking to those who feel that they have spent as much money as they can afford to spend. But in fact this is a narrow view of it and due to a superficial knowledge of the value of good roads as an investment. Those who travel the roads to any extent will be glad to do anything or to make almost any sacrifice to have hard-surfaced roads throughout the parish. Those who feel that they are not interested in good roads to the extent of going down into their pockets and paying for them will have a change of heart if they will go thoroughly into the subject and learn just what relation good roads have to prosperity. In any case in which good roads will not be a paying investment at any price or sacrifice with in reason, the situation will 'warrant pulling up stakes and hiking it to some other place less dreary of opportunities. In fact, it would be foolish to stay in such a country. Prospects never looked so 'bright for St. Tammany parish as to-day. The banks have more money than they have ever had. The people are earning more than they ever earned. The farmer has a better oppor tunity than he ever had. Restrictions against building and improve ments generally have been removed and in a short time things will be in full swing and labor that has 'been employed in carrying on war will be employed in commercial activities. All the big men of finance and busi ness have expressed the opinion that prosperity will be with us for some years to come. There is more work to be done, here and abroad, than there are men to do it. The boys who are coming back from the army are full of new life, new health and broad and liberal views. Their ex perience has prepared them for better citizenship and larger accomplish ment. They have seen things and they know. THE TIME HAS COME FOR US TO GET THE ORDER TO GO FOR WARD. WILL THE PEOPLE GIVE IT? JUST AS THE BOYS AT CHATEAU THIERY DID, SO CAN WE DO THE WORK HERE AT HOME. WE CAN GO FORWARD--OR WE CAN FALL BACK INTO THE WOODS. WHICH SHALL IT BE? a O OUR SHIPBUILDING INTERlESTS. St. Tammany parish has been very loyal in its war activities. It has taken pride in showing that its patriotism is not skin deep and that its heart has been in its work. But of all the war work the shipbuilding in dustries have been the greatest, and it should be a matter of congratula tion that the ships turned out at the .Iahncke shipyards have been classed as the very highest order of workmanship. This is due not only to the fact that many first class ship carpenters were found in Madisonville. but to the establishment by 'Mr. Jahncke of training schools in which the art of shipbuilding was taught to workmen employed in the yards. The shipbuilding industries of St. Tammany parish have placed a large amount of money in circulation, and Covington has been specially bene dtted by the employment of this labor in the Jahncke yards and the yards of the Gulf Shipbuilding Company. Mandeville and Abita Springs also have been benefitted. Therefore our people have an interest in these yards almost the same as if we were sharers in the profits directly. Every. step that Increases the facilities or helps the morale of the workmen puts money into our pockets. Every movement for the comfort of the work men and every act that adds to their pleasure strengthens the develop ment of an industry that is our own. The St. Tammany Farmer has added a corner for shipyard news that will be edited by men from the Jahncke shipyards. It will contain news interesting to the workmen, personal and otherwise, and we expect it to become enlarged and more interesting and serviceable to the men. The editorial staff will be representative and capable writers and we antici pate that The Farmer will become a welcome guest among the men of the yards. MISS LULU E. PHARIS.
