MASTER ADDRESS BY REV. VAUGHAN Ceremonies Opened by Mr Huckaby in Warm Wel come to All. On the night of September 8th, the Community House was formally opened to the public. There was a short program, a.s follows: Talk by Mr. M. C. Huckaby (,on rules and regulations governing thry Community House. Vocal Solo, by Mrs. A. R. McCor mack, accompanied by Miss Levy. Address by .Mr. A. F. Vaughan, who explained the purpose and value of a Community House. Vocal Solo, by Mrs. Unglesby, ac companied by Miss Levy. This ended the program, after which dancing and games of various kinds were enjoyed by a large crowd. Sandwiches and punch were served in abundance. The Community House will con tinue to be open every day and until 10:30 every night. All are wel cothe to come and enjoy the privi leges of the House and such enter tainment as may be provided by the -hostess in charge. Mr. Vaughan's Address Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentle men: Some time ago a prominent busi nes swan died in New York Ci:y. His death was a shock to the ent.re country. He was porminent in com mercial life and during the war ren dered a very patriotic and helpful service to the nation. Commenting on his death one of the newspapers made this statement: "He died at the age of 58-he didn't play." No man has a right to die at that age. He is too young. He has just r~ach ed the prime of lime in his- caieer. But, here he was, a plodding slavO to just one thing in life-business. Of course, he made a success of that, but what of it? He lived in a clos ed house-the windows were down, the doors were shut, locked and barred against intrusion. His as sociates played golf and tenn's-Le stack to his desk. Other men sought pleasure and physical rebuilding by g__ng forth into God's great sauni tor.um-in the mountains, upon the .akes, and into the country--he couldn't spare the time from his bus'ness. His friends had their sociall gatherings-he shut himself up in a room with close-fisted and shrewd 'business men. Then, at the very time in life when he should have been at his best-he died. Everybody agreed that he made a mistake and his life could have been proolnged to good old age, if he had given part of his time to something else beside business. Now the point in the story is simp:v this: every one of us shou!ld remember that play is as essential to life as work. The b'ggest asset to anyone's life is the ability to play the game of life with a joyous heart and a happy spirit. An eminent phy sic!an, Dr. Cabot, has written a won derful book entitled "What Men L r~? By." He says it is work, play; love and worship. To neglect any one of these four elements of life is to lm pair cne's ueasfulns and short.4 life itself. Therefbre, we owe it t" the ccmmunity in which we [:ve; 'e owe it to our families; we owe I, to ourselves, to cultivate the hab t of play in our own lives and enco.. age it as a community necessit.. That means to. l've on the sun:y side of life-to laugh, play, tell funny anecdotes and to imagine that no matter how many years we have spent in this world we are still boyi and girls. The Community House is an or ganization which has come into ex stence after many years of caref-tl study by soical experts. It is re garded by leaders in every realm Jt life to be an absolute necessity, set only for the training of children ait for the benefit of people of - Its underlying principle is that it is worth while to live and to live wet!. The name itself is suggestive--Com munity House. A house,.or center, owned, controlled and used by the people of the community for pur poses of-social, moral, recreational, intellectual and physical develop ment and diversion. It really sup .plements the school room and is a post graduate course in the art of living.

El. C. Bergeron, field secretary, from Washington, D. C.,. came to Covington for that purpose at the request of Scout Headquarters `n New Orleans. A Citizens Committee composed of Geo. Kent, Felix Bachemin, Homrn : Perrin, Jacob Seller, Julian Smith, F. N. Boudousqute, C. H. Hebert, Ben 14ontain, H. J. Ostendorf, R. A. McCormaok, A. D. Schwartz, A. .T. Finney, R. C. Moise, Dr. Bouquo: and Rev. B. Keating, was appointed. A D. Schwartz was selected Troop Chairnman; Felix 'Bachemin," Scout Master. A full size troop with complete equipment has already been assurel by the Knignts. The enthusiasm of the 'boys in taking ho:d of this work has been more than in piring to to those 'who are directing it. All plans for.building a permanent lodge for the accommodation of.all boys in terested in Scouting, have been pro vided for and will be completu' forthwith. Covington, for the past several years,, on account of it's fine fact ! ties and healthy environment, has been looked upon as ideal for this work. The main object of the new Scout Troop is to provide for and recrait raw material in Scout Craft, and to co-operate in every way possible with the troop already organ'zed. It it a mistake on the part of parent. who neglect the business o' encouraging their boys in becoming Scouts. No expenses are attached to the movement other than thos the boys desire to create and pay for by their own efforts. The move ment is non-partisan in character. The average boy between the ages of twelve and eighteen has the ad vantage of affil'ation, either with Troop No. 1 or Troop No. 2, as cce casion may suggest. For the present, Troop meetings -are being held at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Friday nights, be twee.i seven and nine o'clock. After all of the patrols are por fected, the personel of the troop will be published. BORN. To Mrs. Alvin G. King, on Friday, September 3, 1920, a boy. To Mrs. James F.

R. C. I submit herewith my report for the month of August. I was away on a two week's vai a tion, from the 15th to 29th, so the report really covers only two weeks of my work. The first week of the month was taken up with Govington Baby Weei:. This was opened at the Parkview. Theatre on Monday night, the 2nd, with a talk by Mayor Badon, Mr. Vaughan, president of the the Parlsb Anti-Tuberculosis League, a health pageant, and a moving,uicture. Dr. Maylie, chairman Of the chapter, made the introductions, and explain ed the program of the baby week. The examinations were all made by Dr. Bouquoi and Dr. Gautreaux, and were carr'ed on morning and afternoon for the remainder of the week, until Saturday. The weather was so bad on Friday, the day set aside for the colored babies, that only 16 were brought, but the total for the week was 139 barbies. Sa - eral babies have already been, bens fitted. One mother took her ohi.d to, New Orleans the followizig week and had her toneils removed. BSe'. eral babies are brought weekly, :o be weighed, and all are improving very rapidly. August 2, reported to Home Ser vice Secretary case of three sick ue groes in one family. Six month .ind baby very siclk with pneumonia, and her mother and grandmother both in. an almost dying condition, with tu berculosis. They were strangers and had nothing in the house -but tw', beds. No stove. The care of the three sick, and the cooking and wash ing all falling on the oldest child. Took the baby to Charity Hospital and got a woman to go regularly and give some help to the g'rl. Got phy sician to prescribe for the sick. Aug. 3, reported case of feeble minded child to Home Service Sec retary. Was told of her condition in a ,personal letter from a lady in .Mad'sonville. I have been very much interest d'. in Hot Lunches for the school child ren, and have had interviews with Supt. Lyon, with the President of the School League, and with the Do mestic Science teacher here regard ing same. Have also had talks with the Home Demonstration Agent as to her help and co-operation. Pro curel an invitation for her and my self to meet the School Improve ment League at their next meeting, when they will take up the subject for the Covington school. Mrs. Davis, the Home Demonstration Agent, will be very glad to help any of the parish schools in making plansI for hot lunches. On the 12th I took five children over to get eye treatment at the Eye, Ear, Nose-and Throat Hospital. and went to see about two children who have been receiving medical at tention at Touro since June. Took colored baby to hospital at the same DRAINAGE FROM VIEWPOINT OF MISSISSIPPI GROWERS F. H. Adams Tells of Ad-. vantages Recognized by Better Farmers. BIGGEST THING THAT CAME TO COMMUNITT Usual Amount of Skepti cism By Those Who Had Never Seen. GROWERS' ASSOCIATION. Long Beach, Miss., Aug. 11. Mr. W. E. Morris, Covington, La. Dear Sir:-Our good friend, Mr. J. A. Bandi, of New Orleans, tel's me that some of your folks are con tempalting some drainage work, and suggests that perhaps some of our experience might interest you. I suppose that every farm ng com munity, in its early periods of rle velopment, passes through certain stages where the farmers do not know what to do, in matters of crop apportionment, fertilizer, marketing, drainage, roads and schools. Ques tions of policy are intimately con nect ng with finance. It takes time for a farming com munity to find itself. During the early years, especially, money comes hard, farmers are cautious, not dar ing to make mistakes. If members of a community have had perhaps their first good season, they are careful how any hard earned money is invested. And if they have never had a good season it takes a great deal ot faith for them to invests thousands of dollars in what is to them an untried project. But so far as I know, in every state and in every community, the best lands are hardest to get, and L3t make available. This seems true with perhaps most things in life. The best is' always difficult. The b'ggest stumps are always on the best lands, and our richest soils are our lowlands, many times are swamp or overflow lands. And much ex penditure of labor and money is nec essary to 'bring this fertility into use. In some sections it costs more than others to estabtis 4a. -4ed a s aya tem. In a flat country it is some. times recessary to travel quite a dis tance to get a suitable outelt. Drain age is of course on:y possible where there is a certain amount of fall down grade. There are few places where this cannot be found. So, it is believed, the very beat soils are usually located in thosI countries where drainage is necs sary. And drainage of a large ter ritory is only possible in a co-opera tive way. After a preliminary sur vey'k 'district i¢ formed and district or -township bonds are issued. Most states niaw have enabling laws, 'bas ed on experience of thirty or forty years of states or communities that are older in these matters. The best experience and advice is sought ani laws framed accordingly. For 'n stance. the state of Ind'ana has leer. doing this work at least forty years, in a large way. Likewise Ohio and Illinois. Northern Mississippi is do ing it. Our Mississippi laws are framed based on the experience , f older communities and are ve:y good. Here near Long Beach we are constructing a small drainage systea of about thirteen miles. Our farm land about here is flat, a maximu'n of thirty-one feet and a minimum "f about sixteen feet above t de wat-r. After a preliminary survey we created, under the law, a Drainage District, and after a more careful survey the yardage was estimated, and the probable copt. We adver tised simultaneously for bids on the work, and on the bonds, using , course different medla for such a. vertising. The work was let to tin lowest 'bidder, and the bonds sold to the h:ghest bidder. Owing to tran" portation conditions there was som. delay in arrival of machinery, bu! in d'ie time everything was ready, the right of way cleared, the dredge boat and the house boat in position, and today the work is more than half comp!eted. We had the usual amount f skepticism w th the folks that h-l never seen such work done-most of our farmers had not. One woull be surprided at the lack of informa tion encountered: "Water would not run up-hill." "No machine o'n earth will cut through those big gum stumps." "Water Will come down too fast, everybody will be swamr'ed." "The live stock will fad in and 'be drowned." The last few days we have actually had a petit!on presented to the board, in which a farmer represents that his VALU ABLE swamp Ipasture land will t. ruined and wholly worthless, as it will be impossible because of the expense to 'build a continuous bridge time.

SCHOOL OPENS WITH BIGGEST ENROLLMENT IN HISTORY Outlook for a Prosperous School Year Is Filled With Encouragement TO WORK FOR A SCHOOL GYMNASIUM Plan Started by Mr. Haller In Talk To The Pupils Opening Day. Covington High School opened last Tuesday with the most encouraging prospects in the history of the school. There were 475 pupils en rolled. The faculty is an efficient and high graded one. The large audience seated in the school auditorium listened to talks by Prof. Park, the principal; Mr John Haller, Mr. Bryan Burns, Prof. Lyon, Mrs. C. H. Sheffield and Mrs. J. C. Burns. All spoke with confi dence of the winning fight education was making and with hope for the promises of the present year. Mr. Haller's suggestion for a school gymnasium attracted much favorable comment and is especially supported by Prof. Park. There has been general interest awakened out side the school and the movement promises to be the most popular one presented to the consideration of both pupils and teachers. The use fulness of a gymnasium is not con fined to physical development. It brings more interest into school work generally and adds to the health and strength of 'body a men tal attitude that creates loyalty and pride in the school and respect and consideration for the teacher. Class spirit, devotion to school and pri"e in the town all follow athletic achievement of the pupil. Just .is the red, white and blue of the fla quickens the pulse and 'adds value to the citizenship of the American, so is the loyal impulse of the pup 1 quickened and strengthened by the pleasurable things of the school. 13B all means let's have the gymnasium. Prof..-~ark is also FW.a'dering a commercial course for the school. - 0--~--- MANDEVILLE SCHOOL OPENS. The public school of Mandev:lle opened September 6th with a very good attendance. The teachers and pupils seemed anxious to get 'back to work. The School Improvement League is also ready 'for work and will hold its first regular meeting on Tuesday, September 14. 'We urgent ly request the parents and others in terested in the school to come to our meeting, join the League and n7t only assist us finazially but give us advies and opinions. Everybody will be welcome. MRS. R. B. PAINE, President. 'MRS. J. E. LEMIEUX,. Secretary. over the ditch through his farm, to protect his live stock, etc." The better farmers are however now beginning to see that this drain age project is the biggest thing that has come to the community during their experience, and are elated over the fact that the surplus water will most surely be disposed .of, and tha: not only will the surface water readi ly get away, but that sub-surface water w:l11 be quickly lowered to a safe point, and it will be possible to use more drain tile where nec essary. In abort, our ditch will in its ei fect exceed the expectations of those who planned it, and those who were objectors at the beginning are now becoming d!tch enthusiasts. They want the system extended and en larged to cover a larger territory, all of which -will doubtless be done as soon as possiafble. And our neigh boring counties are getting inter ested. In another year I am confident it will be possible to tell some wonder ful stories of more and better crops, larger yields, lower costs, and enorm ously lessened risks from flool causes. If our experience will in terest you or your friends, we shaPl' be glad to tell you anything there is to tell. With best wishes, I am, Yours very truly, P. H. ADAMS. Lake Charles, Aug. 5, 1920. To the St. Tammany Parish Progres sire League, Covington, La. Gentlemen:-It has come to my attention that your parish is at this time interested in a movement to in creape the productivity and value of its land through darinage and irri gation. I have at no time in my life been a planter, nor have I ever been per sonally interested in a drainage movement, but it a a well known fact that proper drainage is one of the v'tal needs of any agricultural comi munity, and this is especially true of any such community in Southern Louisiana, I do not hesitate, therefore, to say that drainage of the proper kind, carried on by men who know their business, will be of benefit to your parish. Yours very truly, N. E. NORTH, VicePresident and Cashier of 'irst National Bak of Lake ChBarles. WOMEN TO VOTE FOR PRESIDENT IN NOV.
