PARISH FAIR IS
EVEN BETTER IN
SOME RESPECTS
THAN BEFORE
School Parade and Poultry
Show Win High Com
ment As Best Ever
FRIEDLANDER
ORANGE EXHIBIT
MVIany Departments Exceed
Last Year, But Stock
Show Fails
The School Exhibit.
The sebool exhibit at the Parish
Fair this year was superior over alt
other exhibits of past years. There
was a very lively interest displayed
in all competitive work, and most of
the teachers were on hand when the
judges were looking over the work.
The booths were beautifully and.
artiaticaizy arranged, and the entire
hall had a festive appearance.
Visitors Swarmed into the build
ing the four days of the fair and fav
,orable comments were heard on all
Sides.
The Covington High School cap
tured the cup for the most artistic
,cotn; Madisonville a cup for the
best school with over four teachers;
'l'alisheek a cup for the three-room
schools; Abita Springs for the best
v isiting school in the parade. Cov
ington High also won the athletic
cup, and Mrs. V. Z. Young's room
won tire cup given by School League
for best appearance in parade. Cov
ialgon High and Slidell High carried
almost equal honors in ribbons, the
first named being a little in the lead.
"Jandeville had a splendid exhibit,
but worked at rather a disadvantage,
having to put in as a Junior and High
t;chool. Madisonville, Folsom, Cen
tral, Pearl River, Audubon and Sun
ill made a -splendid showing and
shared in the ribbons.
It is to be regretted that no one
room or two-roam schools exhibited,
as we had a lovely silver cup for each
in the competitive work.
St. Scholastica's, St. Catharine, of
Madisonville, Our Lady of the Lake,
Mandevjille, all had booths with their
usual excellent work dnd captured
silver cups and ribbons.
We want to thank all teachers and
pupils and supporters and helpers in
the work on School Day. To say
that it was a success, is speaking
mildly, and it is all due to the won
derful spirit shown.
MRS. J. C. BURNS,
Chairman Educational Dept.
We publis below part of the awards
at the fair. The others have not
yet been completed and will be puo
.Jished next week.
In many respects the fair was bet
ter than last year. There was more
system, there were no disturbances
of any kind, and while there was
some disappointment in not having
the hal oan and aeroplane stunts, it
was unavoidable and in no way at
tributable to the fair management.
The midway still offered opportunity
for a lively time.
Mrs. C. S. Engle refused to take
any commission for her work "and
besides gave each of the deaf mutes
of Chinchuba a doll, and let it be
noticed that the boys were just as
anxious to get the dolls as the girls
were and had a good tinme with them.
There were 55 dolls. Mr. Gibbs
gave each of the mutes three free
rides and Mr. Troy gave each a toy
balloon.
The dismal disappointment was
the stock department. Had It not
been for a few kind foliks who want
ed to help things along, there would
have been nothing, and these exhib
ftors are deserving of the hearty
thanks of all. Ticks are given the
lblame for this failure. Cattle o:
value could not be safey brought into
a tick infested district.
'lhe p~oultry show was a credit
and would have been to any fair in
the state. It was the finest poultry
show we have ever had. We have
published pictures of some of the
winners, whose names will he found
in 11e list of awards. Others that
we tried to get failed because of the
darkness in the interior and the fact
that chickens could not be kept stil
long enough for the exposures.
We also give a view of Mr. Fried*
lander's display of oranges suited to
the climate of and grown-in St. Tarn
many par sh. Mr. Friedlander is
doing wonderful work in this indus
try. It is said that he can hardly
tupply the trees in demand. -
The agricultural display was good
in quality, but was not as large as
last year. This is said to be due to
not having a farm agent to get out
among the farmers and encouragt
them to grow for exhibition.
Both President Warner and Secre
tary Mlnckler worked hard for suc
cess, and at least financially put
things through. With proper co
operation, the fair would have beemi
the biggest on record in ever'y way.
The educational department and
the women's department, as well as
the women- whfo fed the hungry, drc
de'vrving of credit.
The band was fine and the dane
mug wa greatly enjoyed.
Mr. Beavers bad some beautiful
Studebaker Six's on exhibition the
second day. They did not reach here I
for the opening and were therefore
not mentioned last week.
Mr. Beavers won two of the aut'a
races and Mr. Henry Levy two. Tit (

THE CLEAN-UP
SQUAD SEARCH
FOR BUDDIES
.(By J.. C. Barnes)
Hey, Buddy! Did you get hit with
a stray bullet while sojourning in
France? Did the flu force you to
do some unwelcome bunk fatigue,
and leave your pumps in a rotten
condition? Did you slice your index
finger off while carving spuds for the
Royal Chef while on K. P. -detail?
Did you inhale some of the German
gas, swear that you only, puff and
never inhale again? If any of these
things happened to you while wear
ing the old O. D. and doing twelve
to twenty-four hours a day for thirty
per and chow and you find that since
going back to the old job that you
sort of have to dodge the boss to hold
on, or if he has caught you at it and
let you go and you now find that it
you are lucky enough to get a job
that you can't hold it; why you are
the chap that your Uncle Sam Ts
cooking for.
Do you know that if you were
wounded or disabled to such an ex
tent that you can't carry on in the
old job that you are entitled to Com
pensation and Vocational Training?
Did you ever hear of the Bureau of
War Risk Insurance or the Federal
Board for Vocational Rlehabilitatibn?
Well, these are the two mighty big
Governmental Bureaus which have
been combined and are now known
as the U. S. Veterans' Bureau. they
are working night and day to find
chaps like you that had a little hard
luck while in the service and to give
you what your Country has provided
for you. When you go meet the
squad, be sure to take your discharge
and any other papers you may have
with you.
Colonel C. R. Forbes, Director of
the U. S. Veterans' Bureau, has in
structed all his fourteen district
managers throughout the United
States to put on an intensive clean
up drive which will last about three
months, in order to comb the country
for fellows just like you, men, who
have a disability as a result of their
service in the World War who do not
know that they are entitled to aid.
Colonel Dallas B. Smith, the new
manager of District No. 6, with head-s
quarters at the New Hibernia Bank
Building, New Orleans, has organiz
ed three clean-up squads which have
been at work siftce the 20th of Aug.
One squad is working in Alabama,
one in Louisiana; and one in Mis
sissippi. There is an advance man
who goes ahead of the squad about
one week and who will advertise the
coming of the squad through the
pfess, by posters, hand bills, Ameri
can Legion Posts, churches, Rotary
and Kiwanis Clubs, Chambers of
Commerce, postmasters, Red Cross
Chapters and every available medium
in order to get the good word to all
the boys that may have a claim
against their Uncle Sammie. So, if

JENKINS-PELAR
FOUND GUILTY
GET 15 YEARS
District Court was in session all,
last week until Tuesday of this.
Judge Carter presided and District
Attorney Brook prosecuted.
The Jenkins-Pelar murder case at
tracted great interest, the first trial
having resulted in a mistrial. A jury
was secured after several panels were
exhausted: The jury as accepted
consisted of Jos. J. Levy, James M.
Levy, Steve Josza, Albert Bechac,
Eugene L. Martin, Harvey Rousseau,
Will Yates, J, Hlitchinson, L. C: Can
ton, Will Weinsbach, Edmund A.

to assist in the prosecution. It is
the first time in the history of St.
Tammany parish, it is said, where a
former mistrial had occurred, that
the jury brought in a verdict of
guilty. Wherever there was pub
lic comment the jury was commend
ed for its decision.
When the defendants were sent
enced later, Judge Carter told there
they had been convicted after a fair
and impartial trial. He said' that in
the years to come while they were
serving, their sentence he hoped they
would learn to be better men. He
-told- Pekir---that--he--considered -him
only a boy, the cause of the crime;
that only the providence of God had
prevented him (Pelar) from killing
the poor old woman; that he was
lucky to escape with his life, and
that they could be tried again on th
charge of lying in wait, etc. Judge
Carter told him he might shorten his
term by good behavior.

LETTERS FAIL
TO ALARM
Several anonymous letters have
been written this week containing
thre~ts of violence. One to a man
of high character and standing, sign
ed "K. K. K." and one to a teacher
in the colored school not signed at
all, but having skull and cross bones,
a red label taken from a bottle o:
poison being pasted on the bottom.
Bothlretters threaten death or bodily
violence. These letters have been
turned over to proper government
officials and a search will be made
for the writer. The.-lffalty is quite
severe. It could not be thought for
a minute that anything of that kind
abuld be permitted to go unpunished.
While one of the letters is signed
"K. K. K." it Is readily understood
that such crude and bungling' work
could not be attributed to that order.
It is thought the author of these let
ters will -soon be in hand.
