SUBSCRIPTION $2.00 PER YEARALWAYS IN ADVANCE* ************ * * * ST. STANISLAUS COLLEGE * * NOTES FOR THE WEEK. * * * ************ Stanislaus Receive* Defeat. Last Saturday the Stanislaus Rock- A-Chaws went to New Orleans to receive the first defeat from the N. O. Boys High. Although th e Rock-A Chaws have played Boys High almost every year, never till Saturday were they defeated by the Eastonites. In the first quarter the Rock-A- Chaws received the ball and ran it back a short distance. Made first down but were unable to make it a second time when signals were given for a kick. The play wa s executed perfectly. But when the Hi School safety, Leggett, received th e ball he made a wide-end run for a touch down. The game the n tightened up. Stanislaus made several first downs, but was unable to make them when first downs meant a touch down. I n th e second quarter the game was a deadlock, both teams moving the ball up and down the field, but neither side was able to get the ball near the goal until a brilliant end run gave High the ball on Rock-A- Chaw r s two-yard line. On three plays they advanced the ball about a yard. On the fourth down they made a two-yard penalty, that gave them 4 more downs and three yards to go. Their line plunging was unsuccess ful, even the Heisman Shift, which they had used before with such amazing results. On the third down the Bay boys were penalized for be ing off sides. High then had the ball a yard from the goal, and four more downs to make it. They worked a cross tackle, which gained for them about a foot. On the next play, however, they carried the ball over for a touch down. They had been held for nine consecutive downs, dur ing which time the ball w r as no fur ther than three yards from the goal. In the third quarter the Rock-A- Chaws made an attempt to rally, but all they could do was to hold them even I n the fourth quarter a bad pass by the center and a fumble by one of the back field men gave High the ball on our twenty-yard line. It was from this position that High sored their final touch down. High School has on e of the strongest elevens it hag bad in years, and should win the Prep School Championship again this season. If they continue to play the same brand of ball they played last Saturday against the Bay Boys they will be champions with little trouble. The Rock-A-Chaw s were support ed in their battle Saturday, by many of their old students and followers who hated to se e their game go down to defeat at the hands of High School. The Boys appreciated this very much as things seemed mighty gloomy at times. Life at S. S. C. is very pleasant these fall days. Everyone is filled with the good old College Spirit, which pays a great part in such life. On Wednesday, October 12th, a committee from the graduating class was selected to appear before the proper officials, to ask for a half hol iday in commemoration of Columbus Day. Th e committee did as it was directed. It returned with their re quest filled in part. Instead of se curing a half holiday they secured a quarter holiday. So the boys at S. S. C. did not forget Columbus even in all their work. The enrollment at S. S. C. has grown considerably in the past week or so. Among the new comers is Schlozel, in whom the college has a star football player. He is round ing into form and is expected to ap pear on the gridiron for S. S. C. in their next game. Class ’22 held a class meeting on Wednesday, the 19th for the purpose of ordering the class rings and pins. The samples that were ordered some time ago were received Tuesday. Among the samples received was one ring and pin that satisfied the ma jority of the class. So these were chosen for the present. As samples have been ordered from other houses the class will not come to a definite decision until these samples have been received and examined. It is rumored around about that Keiffer and Gex want their “Quarter Back.” Sodality. Last Sunday a meeting was held by the old members of the Sodality, the following were elected officers of the Sodality; H. Babin, president. J. T. Wolfe, vice president. O. Kuebel, treasure*. . E.

Planter* Who Were Down and Out, Back to Normalcy Again—Spent Money on Gulf Coast in Former Days With Prodigality as if Hol ders in “Fee Simple of th e Sands of Pactolus.” (By Rev, Nelius Downing.) The far famed Mississippi Delta region, second only to the delta of the Nile in the wonderful fertility of its soil, is coming back strong. The fi nancial collapse of a couple of years ago, following a golden spell of un heard of prosperity, left this section in a financial and social condition that at times was reminiscent of the “re-destruction” (as I call it) period of the latter sixties. One of the most trustworthy signs is the alacrity with which the people are paying bills “long over due.” The Delta folks never fail to pay up when they have the money—if not one must wait and the full payment is sure eventually. Quite a number of the last couple of years accounts, not a few of which were “charged off” are being liquidated with splendid readi ness. Th e Bankers have been telling you correspondent these encourag ing things: (1) Banking deposits are bound ing skyward from 25 to 100 per cent. (2) Frozen loans are being liquidated. (3) Charged off ac counts are almost all being paid up. (4) Notes have been taken up even ahead of time. The planters and farmers have yeen singing songs like this to me: (1) “We have feed enough stored up to ‘carry on’ thru the winter time and even enough generally for about two years. (2) “Our livestock will get through the winter all right.” * (3) “Next time we can produce our crops at a pretty low cost.” “4) If cotton prices go up there will be a greater acreage, but not so great as to wreck prices.” (5) Systematic poisoning of the boll weevil is steadily reducing damage generally.” The most optomistic Delta enthus iast could never have dreamed of so speedy a return from the “lean years” to the period of plenty. No section of our country got the smash the Delta had to endure. It made a mad plunge. It was smashed utterly. Cotton of the highest production, cost .cheated with an abnormally low r price market. Right now collateral cotton at a 5 cent rate values about 15c. The Delta is progressive reg ion, alive with men of brains, energy vision and progressive thought. It can never get a knock out blow, but it ever stays in the financial and agricultural ring. Why the Mississippi Coast be interested in the Mississippi Delta? The reason is not far to seek. Th e Coast is th e re creation center of the Delta folks to a very great extent; the Coast is the summer and winter resort of a great number of planters all through this region. Quite a number of the Delta people have summer homes on the Coast. Your readers will recall the swarm of Delta people that lavished their wealth a couple of years ag from Waveland to Pascagoula; Bi loxi and Gulfport being the chief beneficiaries. They used their own homes, rented residences, filled the hotels; purchasing everywhere, filled the Drug stores, grocery stores, and even filled the chuches, spending money as freely as if each one held the fee-simple of the sands of Pac tolus! So your patient readers, see why they should be interested in the Del ta and in the Deltians; and what your writer has to offer about both. Clarksdale, Miss., Oct, 18, 1921. NEWS ITEMS FROM LOGTOWN.

In answer to the fire alarm given Tuesday afternoon, the city fire de partment promptly responded to the call. It came from the Tea Room, located across The Echo Building, wher e a flue not in use for some years occasioned the trouble. There was no fire at any time, save in anew range that had just been put up. The workmen connec ted the stove pipe to what was seemingly a flue in working condit ion. Th e upper portion of the flue had been removed from the top of the roof and the opening built over again, hence the smoke from the range had no exit and filled the at tic of th e building. There was every indication the attic was on fire judging from the volume of smoking coming therefrom. Mrs. Chapman and Mrs. Nelson, proprietors of The Tea Room, have requested The Echo to express their thanks and appreciation to the many who came to their assistance and to others who volunteered their service and to the townspeople gen erally who were promptly on the scene. The owner of the building is also appreciative of the immediate service of the genetlemen who climb ed on the roof, located the “lost chimney” and found the trouble, and did not leave until every possible existence of fire was found not to exist. Thanks also to Mr. R. de Montluzin who promptly responded with the use of a Babcock appara tus and to the City Fire Department. THE COUNTRY NEWSPAPER. I am the country newspaper.
