SUBSCRIPTION $2.00 PER YEAR ALWAYS IN ADVANCE* FERRY SERVICE CONNECTING WITH ROAD TO NEW ORLEANS. Traveling Between New Orleans and Coast Reduced by Ferry Service From Chef Menteur to Pearl ington to Bay St. Louis. With the installing of ferry ser vice across Chef Menteur out from New Orleans and from Indian Vil lage to Pearlington, Bay St. Louis and the balance of this beautiful Coast country dotted with its sever al cities, are brought closer, and a dream long indulged in has at last been realized. This brings the subject of a straight road from New Orleans to Bay St. Louis more to the fore, and possibly to an earlier realization. Parties who have made the trip tell The Echo that the present ar rangement is admirable. The trip is delightful and interesting, and many of the summer residents re turning to New Orleans rather than ship their car by rail or water are using this route, the auto carrying members of the family and much of the baggage paraphernalia. The coast may not have fully real ized it but New Orleans is one of the greatest assets it has in connection with the visitation of winter tourists. Many tourists are drawn to the coast tj reason of its proximity to New Oi.tans, and v hole rafts of tourists who come to New Orleans visit the coast before returning to their homes. The ferry service from Chef Mentuer to Pearlington is a great thing and the coast rejoices over it. Following is an announcement ap pearing in the Times-Picayune: “Ferry service between Chef Men teur and Pearlington, Miss., inaugu arted Monday by the East Poncthar train Ferry, Inc., puts Gulf Coast points within 42 miles of New Or leans or two hours by automobile. The ferry service is daily, it is an nounced, leaving Chef Menteur at 8 a. m., returning from Pearlington at 2 p. m. Bay St. Louis is 20 miles from Pearlington and is connected by a good road. The distance from New Orleans to Chef Menteur is 22 miles. The Pearlington service was in augurated at the suggestion of the Louisiana Motor League, and it is ex. pected that, with the additional fac ility, more New Orleans motorists will be attracted to the gulf coast. McComb Schools to Receive a Gift of $500,000 from Wm. McColgan. McCOMB, Sept. 22.—McComb city schools are to receive nearly $500,000, the gift of William Mc- Colgan, in the name of McColgan brothers and sister, for the estab lishment and endowment in perpetu ity of a trade or vocational high school as a part of the city school system, with $160,000 for a build ing and $250,000 for the endowment and probably this is the largest gift ever made to a city school system in the history of Mississippi, and one of the largest in the history of the entire south.

Record of last week’s issue, call* attention to a common violation of a law in near ly every county in the state, a law which has been duly tested and up held by the Supreme Court. The at tention of the District Attorney ought to be the means of a remedy in many instances and in the absence of more drastic measures where nec essary. The article follows: There is a law in Mississippi to protect Mississippi interests just as other states have similar laws to protect the interests therein, which provides that no printing for county and state officials shall be sent out of the state, and none shall be sent out of the county, where the county has a printing office equipped to do the work right. In the proceedings of the board of supervisors of New ton county for July, The Record notes an allowance made the Damer on-Pearson Cos., for stationery for $18.51; and in the proceedings of the board this month, there is pub lished an allowance for Foote-Davis Cos., of Atlanta, Ga., for $189.44 for record books. In the same proceed ings is another account of Dameron- Pierson Cos., which was continued. The law makes it a violation for the officers to buy this stuff out of the state, and the attention of the presi dent of the board of supervisors was called to this some time ago, and he said the board did not wish to vio late the law, but the fact remains that they are still violating it, and they may regret it. There is no need to send out of the county for sta tionery and out of the state for rec ord books, as state concerns can sup ply them just a s cheaply, and it is up to the county attorney and dis trict attorney to see that the law is complied with. Heavy Export of Lumber at Gulf Ports Predicted. PASCAGOULA, Sept. 22.—Indi cations point to a prosperous fall and winter business for the Gulf coast region. Many of the interior saw mills have resumed operations to meet the growing demand for ex port and domestic lumber. It is es timated that several million feet of boards, deals, scantlings will be ship ped from Gulf ports to South and Central America with heavy ship ments of timber and cross ties to New York and Boston. The sawmills of Greene county are in full opera tion. Farmers of the Bayou Casotte district are planting large acreage in onions. Th e adaptability of the soil in this locality for growing veg etables has inspired the truckers to produce bumper crops of early spring onions. Thousand* of Dollars to be Expen ded in Biloxi’s Building Program. Thousands of dollars are to be ex pended in Biloxi within the next few days and more f improvements in sight in the construction of residen ces and business houses, together with general repair work as shown by building permits issued to con tractors at the city hall.

Vardaman Club Orders Immense Store of Supplies for Gathering of Ten Thousand. The Vardaman club of Jackson is preparing for a great rally and bar becue at the state fair grounds on September 29, and express themsel ves as confident that one one of the greatest crowds ever assembled in Jackson will be on hand. The committee in charge of the barbecue state that they have con tracted for 8,000 pounds of beef, 2,500 pounds of mutton, and have selected Gurwood Guice, a well known barbecuer to take charge of the cooking. Mr. Guice has had a pit dug 260 feet long directly behind the agricul tural building and had hauled a gen eral supply of hickory wood on which the meat will be prepared for the table. The committee have also contracted for 5,000 loaves of bread, five barrels of pickles and great quantities of pickles and salad and 500 pounds of coffee.

The contract let for the service of a 32- piece brass band has been filled. The speakers stand is being erected directly in front of the grand stand fronting the race track. Gulfport School Levy, 5H Mills— Bay St. Louis, 4 Mills. Gulfport, which has one of the best schooling systems in Mississippi has had a school levy of 5% mills for the past two years. It is esti mated that in comparison with other cities in Mississippi the tax levy is one of the lowest. This information was secured by those interested in school work for the purpose of en lightening the public from the nec essity of an additional one mill to the school tax levy with which to remedy the present crowded condit ions.

GOVERNMENT ACCEPTS TEN MILLION DOLLAR HOSPITAL AS GIFT OF EDWARD HINES, MIL LIONAIRE CAPITALIST, CHICAGO A hospital which is said to be the finest of its kind in America was turned over recently for the relief of disabled war veterans, and pat ients are now being transferred there from the government institu tions. It is the Speedway Hospital in Chicago. Its size may be inferred from the statement that there are six miles of The cost was $10,000,000 and was built with private funds, be ing intended by Edward Hines, a wealthy lumberman, as a memorial for his son, Edward Hines, Jr., who fell in France. Not the least remark able fact about the hospital is that Mr. Hines only succeeded in getting the government to accept his gift after a struggle of nearly three years and an expenditure of $200,- 000 attorney’s fees. The ways of congress are past finding out. Lobbying is usually designed to get something from the government, yet, here is a case where long persistent lobbying was required to persuade the govern ment to accept something which would save it money and sorely need ed. It is a repetition of the exper ience that J. P. Morgan had when he offered his London residence to the government for an embassy. The belated acceptance in the present case, while doubtless pleas ing to the donor, is J-endered ungrac ious by the condition which accounts for the hospital’s name. The con dition is that the institution must not bear the name of the son who gave his life for his country, and whose inheritepce now goes to help his liyjng comrades. NOTICE TO CREDITORS.

NOTES OF THE FROM CENTRAL SCHOOL. Thursday, Sept. 22nd. Central School Litfrary Society will holds its meeting Friday, Sep tember 23rd. The last year officers will have charge of this meeting. The new officers will be elected, af ter which an interesting program of thirty minutes will be given. A re port of the election and doings of the Society will be chronicled for next week’s Echo. The boys are showing a lively in terest in organizing the basket ball team for the coming season. Judg ing from the spirit manifested and the enthusiasm already displayed in athletics, great things are expected. The smaller boys will haye class foot ball teams, but there are not enough big boys in the school to have a ’varsity team to play the other schools. The matter of athletics in the Cen tral school will be fostered as far as practicable, and along this line it is proposed to give much attention al though not at the expense of the class room. The enrollment of the schopl is gradually being augmented, and every endeavor is exercised in an ef fort to develop the school to the highst degree of efficiency. While nothing has been given out officially, it is understood the main holidays occurring during the schol astic term will be appropriately ob served by the pupils in the rendition of suitable programs, thus bringing to the young minds what the days celebrated stand for, and the en tertainment will be a means of bringing the patrons and public in geeral in closer touch to the school. The public is invited to visit the different schools at any time. In fact, a special invitation is extended to one and all. We are striving to get the utmost results and our ef forts will bear inspection at all times. Prof. McCluer has inauguarted a system of visiting the other schools of the city as was carried out in former years and with much success. While he is is principal of the Cen tral school as superintendent he proposes to keep in touch with the other city schools, white and color ed, and the other schools wel come his visits. It accelerates in terest and inspires greater efforts. Prof. McCluer has taken the King cottage, Carroll avenue, where he was joined by his wife last Fri day. WITH THE THEATRES. A. A G.—Beach Front.

Biloxi, Miss., Sept. 18, 1921 Editor Daily Herald: It will be opportune if you will please publish the genuine obligation taken by all Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus. Note the fact that we take no oath. The Knights of Columbus is not an oath bound or ganization. The members merely accept obligations. The Knights of Columbus is not even a Catholic or ganization, but an organization of Catholic men. The distinction is vital. Catholic church organizations are societies such as the Sacred Heart Society, The St Vincent De Paul Society, The Holyjfetame Soc iety, The Children of Mary Society, and the Catholic Welfare Council. The Knights of Columbus organiza tion is a fraternal and insurance so ciety. The great secret of the K. of C., order is that like the Masonic or der, it has no secret whatever. Here then, is the obligation, (not oath) accepted by Fourth Degree Mem bers of the Knights of Columbus: “I swear to support the Constitu tion of the United States. I pledge myself fully on my duties as a citi zen and to conscientiously perform such duties entirely in the interest of my country and regardless of all personal consequences. I pledge myself to do all in my power to pres erve the integrity and purity of the ballot and to promote reverence and respect for law and order. I promise to practice my religion openly and consistently, and to so conduct my self in public affairs to reflect noth ing but credit upon our Holy church to the end that our country prosper to the great honor and glory of God.” Faithfully Yours, REV. NELIUS DOWNING. COMMUNITY FAIRS FOR HAN COCK COUNTY.

PUTTING THE GULFPORT HAR BOR BEFORE PEOPLE OF STATE JACKSON, Sept. 22.—The indus trial agent of the G. & S. 1 Railroad, Captain J. J. Taylor, has been spend ing a day or two in Jackson trying to influence the Chamber of Com merce to join with Gulfport in an effort to have the war department appropriate about $185,000 for the improvement of the ship channel at Gulfport, and it is understood that Jackson will join forces to this end. Mr. Taylor explained that the war department had set aside the sum of $50,000 to do this work that is to widen and deepen the channel so that ocean going vessels may get in and out without trouble. It has been estimated that it will cost in, the neighborhood of $200,000 to accom plish the results desired. The var ious town of the state are being ap pealed to to back Gulfport in her undertaking and it is believed that all of them will do so. Great quan tities of lumber and other Mississip pi products pass through Gulfport to foreign countries and there does not seem to be any good reason why this one Mississippi harbor is not taken care of by the general government. HOME BREW HELD ILLEGAL IN RULING BY COMMISSIONER. Prohibition Commissioner Haynes Declares Head of Family May Make Non-Intoxicants. WASHINGTON, Sept. 19—Warn ing that the making of intoxicating “home brew” is illegal was issued by Prohibition Commissioner Haynes. Numerous inquiries have been re ceived recently, he said, concerning the home manufacture of fruit juice growing out of reports that a head of a household wase entitled to make 200 gallons of wine a year under a permit. The attitude of the home brew question was defined by Mr. Haynes as follows: “Non-intoxicating fruit juices can be made in the home. Intoxicating wine, home brew, and distilled spirits may not be made. Two hundred gal lons of non-intoxicating fruit juices may be manufactured tax-free by a head of a family registering with a collector of internal revenue. “This tax exemption provision has been the cource of confusion. The effect of this is not only to allow the manufacture of 200 gallons of in toxicating wine free from registra tions of the national prohibition act, but merely to allow the manufacture of 2GO gallons of non-intoxicating f ruit ju’ces free of tax ” BILOXI PACKERS DENY PLAN TO CURTAIL SHRIMP CATCH.

PROHIBITION LAWS DISMAL FAILURES, ASSERTS EDWARDS. • • New Jersey Governor Likely to Make Senate Race on Wet Platform. ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Sept 19. —Governor Edward I. Edwards, of New Jersey, condemned prohibition as a flat failure and an instrumen tality of vice and corruption in an interwiew today at the Ambassador, where he came to confer with lead ing Democrats on the governatorial and senatorial situation. In view of Governor Edwards’ emphatic denun ciation of the Eighteenth Amend ment, astute political observers be lieve that he intends to make his campaign for United States Senate the seat of Senator Frelinghuysen on a platform for the repeal of the prohibition law. Governor Edwards said: “Prohib ition is a flat failure. It prohibits only one class—those who have not the price. The rich can get all they want. Farmers are still able to brew their own. All they have to do is to prepare juices and the Lord fer ments them. “As I see it, one of the principal reasons for the failure of prohibi tion is those that are entrusted with the enforcement of the law are the most persistent violators. I dare say that hardly more than a dozen men in congress have empty hip pockets and empty cellars. Prohibition is underminding the character of the people. It is making the United States a nation of liar 8 and crimin als, for every one who buys and drinks liquor in the sight of the law is a criminal. I have seen more drunkenness in the last two years than ever before. I am not opposed to prohibition because of personal deprivation, but because it is an in fringment of personal liberty, I do not drink liquor nor other intoxicat ing beverages nor does any member of my family. “I do not wish to be understood as favoring the saloon. I am glad that institution has been abolished, for it was the greatest curse of the nation. It was the saloon that the treating habit developed and result ed in drunkenness. Where wines and beer are served at the table, there is scarcely any intoxication at any time. Where cards are enjoyed in the family circle there is hardly any gambling. Prohibit alcoholic beverages and card playing in the home and members will go to excess when outside. No nation ever be came great on a “thou shall not” diet. There can be no character without temptation. Our Saviour preached this. No credit is due a young man or young woman who re mains good because he or she is shut up in glass cases.” —Mrs. R. W. Taylor was hostess to a large number of guests at the beautiful beach home on Thursday afternoon, when she entertained at cards in compliment to her mother in-law, Mrs. Thomas Taylor, of Bal timore, Md., who is here on a visit of an indefinite period. The affair was a most charming one in every appointment, and the prizes award ed the successful ones who pitted their skill against opponents were handsome and worthy of the beauti ful affair. This is one of the more delightful and one of the larger at tended affairs of the season. 30TH YEAR—No. 40
