The Louisiana Press Association De.
Iightfully Entertained Under
That the people of Lafayette are
past-masters in the art of entertain
ing was the unanimous conclusion
reached by the members of the Louisi
ana Press Association, which body
convened in twenty-eighth annual
session within the gates of this de
lightful and progressive little city
April 30, May I and 2. Nothing was
left Undone that could in the slightest
degree contribute to the pleasure and
comfort of tie city's guests, and in
spite of the wretched condition of the
weather, which involved an almost
ceaseless downfall of rain throughout
the principal day and night of the
meeting, the convention proved to be
one of the most enjoyable and success
ful that the association has had in
recent years. The rain interfered
with a number of pleasures which had
been planned by the people of La
fayette for the entertainment of their
visitors, and one of the chief regrets
experienced by the editors was the
fact that they were compelled to
forego witnessing the great parish
school convocation which was to, have
been held Wednesday forenoon.
Dr. E. L. Stephens, president of the
Southwestern Louisiana Industrial
Institute; editor of the bright and
pithy Louisiana School Review, and
chairman of the press association's
executive committee, was untiring in
his efforts to make the press party en
joy the meeting at Lafayette to the
fullest extent. The resolutions of
gratitude and appreciation unani
mously adopted by the association,
and the enthusiastic expressions of
individual opinions, are proof enough
that his efforts met with unqualified
success in every particular. Indeed,
it was a noteworthy fact that the
chairman and members of the various
committees carried out the work as
signed to them with great forethought
arid carefulness of detail, for not
Z* ditd &i hitch, G al any `v! the
proceedings -carriages were ever in
readiness to convey guests to and
from the places of meeting, and the
citizens of Lafayette seemed to enter
heart and soul into the spirit of the
occasion and with the feeling thattthe
entertainment of the press association
was a matter of personal concern.
The delegates were quartered mostly
at the Gordon Hotel and various pri
vate residences, while a number of the
young women of the association were
guests at the girl's dormitory of the
Industrial Institute. Your corre
spondent was among these latter fortu
nates, and too much cannot be said
about the delightful treatment received
at the hands of the members of the
faculty and the students of the In

which was displayed towards no at all

Staff Correspondence of The Chief.
When we have learned the lesson of
content, surely we have mastered the
greatest problem of human life. I re
memberl'eading somewhere some time
ago that nearly every joy we experi
ence is comparative, and the longer I
live the more strikingly is the truth of
that assertion brought home to me.
Thusly do we argue: "I have not as
large a supply of this world's goods
as I would like to have, but then,
think how much more fortunate I wam
than so many others!" Contentment
is not the faculty for being gratefti4
because one is better off than the next
fellow; it is simply and purely the statS
of-being satisfied for no other' reason
than BECAUSE. Our development 'a
'malcontents begins when we are very
little children, and even in that en
chanted period the joys we hugto. our
small bosoms are mostly compardtt =
ones. I took the littlest friend I have to,
