BISHOP GUNN’S ADDRESS THE OUTSTANDING FEATURE. Bishop Takes Occasion to Dwell on Subject of Education —Says 25 Per Cent of Men Examined For Late War Could Hardly Read and V/rite. Degree Team of the Santa Maria Council, of Algiers, La., Charge of Exer iscs—Day Was One Never To Be Forgotten. Sunday, December 10, 1922, mark i and an epoch in the history of‘the Knights of Columbus at Pass Chris tian, when one of the largest classes initiated into the order on the coast was most successfully carried through the long and impressive ceremony, says the Pass Christian Beacon of to day’s issue. Continuing, that journal says: Saturday night and all through the early hours of Sunday visiting Knights from New Orleans, Bay St. Louis, Gulfport. Hattiesburg. Biloxi, Mississippi City, Pascagoula and Ocean Springs began to arrive, and at the appointed hour of 9:30 when the candidates and the Knights were to form in parade at St. Paul’s Club, there was a fine body of something like five hundred men in line, follow ing the Union flag, carried'" at the head by Louis Dufrechou, one of the most enthusiastic of the local Knights and ’proceeded to St. Paul’s Church, where high mass was conducted by Father Leech, who "was served by Hugh Fitzpatrick and- Leo McDer mott. Frank F. Farrell, Adlai Lang, Bernard Knost. R. V. Ammley, En right Curtis with the other local mem bers directed arrangements and noth ing was left undone to make the in itiation successful, and the stay of the Knights pleasant. The church was filled to the doors, and when Bishop Gunn arose tc wel come the Knights every one present prepared to hear an address that would benefit the solemn, impressive occasion. In this they were the least disappointed, for it was the con census of opinion that never before has the talented divine appeared more impressive or more effective. His sermon was one that not only Catholics could enjoy, but one that every American should have heard, for it thrilled with patriotic emotions and pointed out plain 1/vthe duty of every true American to his God and his government. After extending a most cordial welcome to the Knights, Bishop Gunn said that he could not lot the oppor tunity pass without speaking on edu cation as a week which has just been brought to a close. He brought out the statistics furnished by the gov ernment on illiteracy and pointed out that 25 per cent of those examined in this country in the late war could hardly read or write. He then brought out the fact that the ignorance of so many people in this country was caused by the lack of education. While on the subject, Bishop Gunn stated that it was first believed that the ignorance was being imported and so an attempt had been maiH to curb immigration, but that it has now been found that much of the ignorance is native American. He mentioned the low literacy of Missis sippi, Alabama, Georgia and other parts of the South. Bishop Gunn then brought in the point that while the government was making an effort to further education there is much un-American in this country today when efforts are being made to close schools.. In reference to this he mentioned that while Mich igan had failed to enact a law to pro hibit the parochial schools in that State, Oregon was successful. “The closing of schools,” the speaker said, “only helps to make America more ignorant. No wonder the govern ment tells us to wake up before ft is too late.” He theft read a text taken from a government educational pamphlet, written by Victor Hugo, which said that every school closed forced the building of another jail. Bishop Gunn then declared that there were over 2,OOO;O0O American children in the parochial schools to day, and that if these schools were away with, it would cost the government rhillions of dollars of ad ditional money to keep up other schools. He further stated that it would require 50,000 more teachers. Pointing to the large American flag within the altar rail, the speaker told the Knights to love their country, and then, pointing to a crucifix, told them to work for their church and to do their best to further education “We are not against any school and are in favor of any teaching, whether in public or in other schools,” Bishop Gunn declared. He further said that Tie had never heard a Knight of Co lumbus say a word against a public school or teacher,* and that in obedi ence to the government and president that the Catholics are in favor of edu cation in any school. Bishop Gunn spoke on the anu- Catholic work being done, in which it was stated that Catholics were not fit to be loyal. In this regard he brought out a few facts to the Knights of Columbus in the late war and stated that 35 per cent of the Tlie County Paper. army in the late war was Catholic, while the enlistment in the navy was higher. Bishop Gunn again pointed to the flag and said that the flag stands for the discovery of this coun try by Catholics; that it stands for i the early pioneers and explorers who heft their homes and country to blaze a trail in the American wilderness, and that it stands for San Francisco, I St. Louis, St. Joseph and other cities with Christian names to show that Catholics were here before the bigots ! came into existence.” In bringing his address to a close, Bishop Gunn paid a beautiful tribute to the American flag. ’ Following the close of the church service, the Knights marched to St. Paul's Hall, where a luncheon was served to all. Following the luncheon the initiatory exercises began in auditorium of the school. The de- j gree team of the Santa Maria Coun- j cil, of Algiers, was in charge of the work and the class received the first,! second and third degrees! Among the prominent Knights in attendance was Peter Muntz, grand knight of the Algiers Council; Emile Wagner, district deputy for the first district of Louisiana; Morris Redman, prominent Louisiana Knight; John I Schwenck, Mississippi State deputy, j and numerous other prominent mem- j hers of the order from Louisiana and Mississippi. Those received into the order are as follows: Gulfpoi’t—L. E. Darrion, Salvadore Margiotta, J. Margiotta, Ignatious Totoro, S. Hewes, L. F.

Right at the very door! William H. Ruhr, elected alderman ip Ward 4, WavelanH, last week re ceived 3 votes. Only 3 ! Was he elected? Certainly. Unanimously, too. There are only 3 qualified voters in Ward 4, Waveland. The confines of this ward extend from the Bay St. Louis line to the north side of Nich olson avenue and back to the cor porate line. Two votes are sufficient to be elected. But Alderman Ruhr was certain of a unanimous vote be fore he entered the race. One of the three votes is his own, the other his wife’s, and the third hi* daughter’s. And, better than all, Waveland could not have selected a better man to serve on its aldermanic board. ELECTION OFFICERS LOCAL MA SONIC ORDER. Election Held Tuesday Night For Lodge No. 429—Fred A. Wright Elected Worshipful Master In stallation Second Saturday Jan uary. • - At the regular annual and monthly meeting of Bay St. Louis Lodge, No. 429, F. & A. M., Fred A.

Breath, secretary, George S. Horton, 3. D. Alcine E. Saucier, J. D. George Heitzmann, tyler. Installation Of the newly-elected officers will be held on the evening of Saturday, January 13th. The re-election of Judge J. A. Breath is noted with more than ordi nary interest. He has held this trust for many consecutive years, and we understand his election is always unanimous MICHAUD TRACT IS REPORTED SOLD AT NEAR MILLION. Times-Picayune of Yesterday Reports Purchase by Man Who Helped De velop Gentilly Terrace and Well Known Locally. Colonel R. E. E. DeMontluzin, real estate dealer and developer of Gen tilly Terrace, Thursday became the owner of the largest area of city property in the world. The - rank was achieved by the purchase of the Michaud tract of 34,000 acres. The i details were not given out, but sl,- 000,000 was said to have* been im volved in the deal. The Michaud tract lies between the Lake Shore prbperty, Chef Menteur and Lakes Borgne and Pontchartrain. It is traversed by the Chef Menteur Highway and two railroads, and also is reached by the drive along Lake Pontchartrain. It has been the de velopment ideal of a number of cap ital groups, and only recently emerg ed from litigation which placed the title in the hands of W. J. Engle, of Chicago. . . Colonel DeMontluzin, it is said, has arranged for the development of the highway section, and has made plans for the utilization of the remainder. DID YOU GET YOURS? . A. Scafide & Cos. send The Echo a copy of the handsome 1923 calen dar the firm is putting out this year. Nothing like it has ever been given out locally. The calendar is'in the shape of a wall pocket, and the pic ture of snow and tinsel and the dif ferent hued tints form a combination that halts the attention and com mands the admiration. A copy of calendar is yours for the asking. It is too delicate and expensive for mailing. Mr. Scafide is generous. Although costing more than the ordinary calendar, he has reserved one for you and it might be well to call for it. Say you saw the announcement in The Echo. The firm of A. Scafide St Cos. is one of the enterprising business organi zations in this city. Starting from a small beginning, Mr. Scafide and his sons have built up a business to suc cessful aqd beyond ordinary propor tions. Energetic, enterprising and believing in service first, last and all the time, the firm has prospered and enjoys the esteem and confidence of the public. —You are invited to see our Holi day Line.

Although First Levee Was Built 200 Years Ago Control I No Nearer Than at the Beginning, Washington, Dec. 14. —Declaring the fight to control the Mississippi river had proved a failure under the existing project, J. T. Kemper, New Orleans engineer and member of the safe river committee, told the House flood control committee today that although the first levee was built 200 years ago, the goal was no nearer of accomplishment. Each flood, he said, brought a gradually increasing crest. Mr. Kemper criticised the methods of the Mississippi River Commission, which he said had “reached conclu sions on what ought to be done after having -done it.” The Harrison County Circuit Court grand jury haslet an excellent prece dent by publishing an advertisement in the Gulfport Herald inviting any citizen to* appear and “give such in formation as he may possess.” The notice goes further and declares that the grand jury doesn’t want the critics to wait until after it adjourns to make criticisms of inefficiency. BAY ST. LOUIS. MISSISSIPPI, SATURDAY. DECEMBER 16, 1922. WAVELAND HAS NEW BOARD OF MAYOR AND ALDERMEN. " George T. Herlihy Elected Chief Mag istrate of Sister City—Voters Elect New Board—Veteran Marshal, J. J. Bordages, Re-Elected and Leads Ticket. / Waveland has anew mayor and new board of aldermen. The people of Bay St. Louis’ sister city seemed to have fnade an almost clean sweep. The selection of George T. Herlihy appears to be quite a recognition of the young man in politics. He is pos sibly the youngest mayor in the State, and The Echo ventures the assertion he will easily prove one of the best. Mr. Herlihy is a native of this coun ty, a graduate of St. Stanislaus Col lege, of Bay St. Louis, and a young man not only of ability but imbued with practical and progressive ideas. His selection is generally well re ceived, and the compliment all the more when it is considered he de feated one of the best known and capable of executives in the person of Mr. Oius M. Bourgeois, who on previous occasions served Waveland in the capacity of chief magistrate with marked ability, Mr. Bourgeois was a close second, however, lacking only six votes to tie with his oppon ent. Mr. Herlihy will succeed Mayor Thomas J. Bourgeois, who was not a candidate, having moved his family to Biloxi, where he D in business. The result of Wavcland’s municipal election is as follows: For Mayor. George T. Herlihy 59 Olus M. Bourgeois 53 V. E. Lizana i._ 8 For Alderman—Ward 1. William H. Ruhr 3 For Alderman —Ward 2. D.

Ladies of Baptist and Methodist Mis sionary Societies Give Successful Benefit —President of P. T. A. Makes Report of Trip to Hatties burg—Other Interesting Items of Interest. The ladies of the Methodist and Baptist Missionary Societies of Log- j town gave a bazaar last Tuesday, De- | >cember 5, which brought to the pro moters $132. This sum is to be used as part support of two one Methodist and one Baptist. Each church has adopted a child from the orphan homes. The P. T. A. enjoyed a report from our president, Mrs. Calvin Fountain, j upon her visit to the district meeting held at Hattiesburg. Her report had I much to do with influencing our asso- | cition to join the State T. P. A. Every patron in Logtown is proud of the record made by our P. T. A. during the past four years and we feel that other patts of our State should know of the work done herb. The Girl Scouts went on a hike Tuesday afternoon. They left im mediately after school. They hiked out of town about a mile to a nice place to cook Tsuppfct*. They showed unusual talent in their cooking. Everything was cooked without cook ing utensils. They ate supper as soon as it was ready. After supper their captain gave them a lecture on Home Nursing. They had a splendid time and got much good from this hike. The Boy Scouts enjoyed a camp ing trip last Friday night down at the old- gin place, where the mosquitoes . were knee deep. Rudolph and Charles I did not have but one “meal” with ; them and that began at supper and lasted all night. We might call the j trip an endurance test, as it was cer tainly a strain on the bread basket. J. S. KELLY. WAVELAND TO RETRENCH. Retrenchment is the slogan in Waveland. At least it is so with the newly-elected Board of Mayor and Aldermen. *The new board has been sworn in and already the members assumed their various duties. Under the"plan discussed and adopted, the secretary, whose office is appointive, but will be made elective in time for the next regular election, will receive $20.00 per month instead of $23.00, as here tofore. Laborers on the streets and else where about the city, heretofore re ceiving #3.00 per day, will receive 25 cents per hour 8-hour day, thus receiving $2.00 instead. And j other reductions proportionately vflH be made.. In all it is expected for the first year no less than SBOO.OO and over will be saved the taxpayers. It is planned to put the town on a solid financial basis, and to put its physical property into first-class shape; to improve the town-and brttig it* to the fore where it so rightly be longs: These men will certainly win the plaudits of the taxpayers. A STORY WITH A MORAL. The power of newspaper advertis ing cannot be overestimated. It must never be doubted. Neither the pulling power of an ad. in the columns of THE SEA COAST ECHO. Surely, a trial will convince. ♦ * * Last week a two-lme ad., modest looking and inserted away off in an obscured corner, telling of a piano for sale, proved instant success. Did you see it? The ink had hardly dried when there were three prospective purchasers. Needless to say, the piano was sold, and to advantage. This piano was on the market for sale for several years. This was the first time it was advertised. The ad, cost only 30 cent®, the minimum charge. Money well invested. You cannot do better. Moral: Advertise in THE SEA COAST ECHO for results. SOCIETY OF IMMACULATE CON CEPTION FLOURISHING. Under Head of G. Maurigi Local Italian Organization Is Prosperous and Has Splendid Membership. Organized for fraternal and benev olent purposes, the Italian Society of the Immaculate Conception has a larger membership than ever, and its financial condition is flourishing. Mr. G. Maurigi is the able presi dent. He works at all times for the success of the organization, and spares no effort. The result is that he is amply rewarded for his interest so actively displayed by the success which crowns the organization. On Thursday, December Bth, after attending high mass in a body at the Church of Our Lady of the Gulf, members of the society, headed by a brass band, paraded the principal streets-of the city. At noon a dinner was served at the Woodmen Hall, and several addresses were delivered. It was a great event and enjoyed by all. The officers of the Society of the Immaculate Conception are: G. Maurigi, president; B. Monteleone, vice president; G. Scianna, second vice president; G. Benigno, treas urer; Michael de Perry, drum mar shal. To Build Tomb at St. Mary’s. In the immediate future' there will begin the building of a community tomb for use of the deceased mem bers and their respective .families. The tomb will contain a row of vaults on both sides of a hallway that will run through the center of the build ing and at one end of which there will be an altar erected and services held there on All Saints’ Day and other days of general observance. While the number of vaults has not as yet been decided upon, there will be quite a number and the tomb will be several stories. President Maurigi is quite anxious to have this work carried out at the earliest possible mohient. The funds to pay for this tomb are in bank, SWEET POTATO WEEVIL FIGHT. Six Men Employed in Four Counties Under Dr. K. L. Cockerham, Assistant Scientist. There is a strong campaign now being carried on- in the four counties of Harrison, Hancock, Pearl River and Jackson against the sweet potato weevil, \tfhich has caused destruction to the potato vines in the past and which is being wiped out as fast as the work can be carried on. Six men are employed in this work under the supervision ol Dr. K. L. Cockerham, of Biloxi, scientist for the Department of Agriculture, and they are making a fight against the pest to eliminate it altogether. For this purpose there is a demon stration farm at Wiggins upon which they raise hundreds of sweet potato slips, which are given to the farmer whose place has been found to be in fested. These sweet potatoes will be bedded so that the slips may be se cured in the eurly spring. Dr, Cock erham made an inspection of the work at Wiggins Thursday and was in Bay St. Louis yesterday.* BARGAINS AT BAY MERCANTILE CO’S.

BAY-WAVELAND CLUB STAGES SUCCESSFUL STAG. , Affair Last Saturday Night Attracted Splendid Attendance and Proved Succetsful—Program of Burlesque Vaudeville Numbers well Render ed and Received With Equal Fa vor—Club Again Score* Big Suc cess. Bay-Waveland Club was host to its members and their friends last SaTtrr day night. The affair was a party” and prbved a success in every element of its make-up. Bernard-Shields was the clever and princely master of ceremonies. * How well he carried off the honors of the evening was best demonstrated to the satisfaction and pleasure of those whose privilege it was to be present. A feature of the evening was re ceiving messages by telegraph and wireless, however, more by the latter route. W. H. Starr, local electrician for the Cumberland Company, and one of the live wire members of the 8.-W. Club, was at the keyboard, op erating with every outward evidence of a professional. As he ticked off the messages these were read to the audience by the master of cere monies. There were messages from all parts of the world, from poten tates and others, male and female, and were addressed individually to members present. Each message received was a sig nal for the arrest instanter of the party to whom addressed. Mayor Webb, attired in the full regulation uniform of the metropolitan police, paroled the aisles and affected the various arrests. The program consisted of a num ber of burlesque vaudeville numbers. First on the program was Prof. Er nesto Leonhardo, saxaphone soloist. The management explained that he was brought to Bay St. Louis at great expense, under special license and by special agreement with the Orpheum Circuit. It was also announced that at an other enormous expense the man agement had secured the presence of Annie Oakley, famous female crack rifle shot. The girl, who had appear ed the world over and whose aim, no matter in what position and at what angle, was alwavs True. A believer in ‘‘safety first” all the time. Miss Oakley demonstrated her ability in accurate shots. Although the enter tainment was for “men only,” as the invitations announced, it was through a special concession granted by an extraordinary session of the club committees, that Miss Aakley was present. Prof. Evergreen Lucasto, an apos tle t)f the cult that knows no sorrow, but only joy, gave “twenty minutes” with a traveling man on the load. The remarks prefacing the experi ences and the different anecdotes were well received. These were i told only with that success such as a polished and elegant reconteur as Prof. Lucasto is well known for. Prof. Fuller Bull was at his best. He told stories in dialect and acted the parts to finish. General laughter resulted and helped to keep the audience in excellent humor. His store of stories seemed inexhaustible and when he had concluded the cry was for more. The appearance of Mrs. Clara Philips, who escaped her captors in Los Angeles, captured in Bay St. Louis, caused quite a commotion. Her lecture on the stage, however, was comparatively brief. She was paid by the management by the word —sp much per. A long-worded ex- j perience might have bankrupted the club. The feature of the evening, how ever, was reserved for the end. A bout between 'Georges Carpentier, the gentleman prize fighter from Paris, with the Senegalese battler, “Battling Siki.” The ring was erect ed alongside the stage and the bat tle was soon on. Both men were in fine fettle. The bout was fast and furious, lasting three rounds. Siki made some wicked passes and, for tunate for Carpentier and his timely duck, for France would have lost her t idol’. . \ £|iki was impersonated by li. H. Burns, attended by J. J. Ritayik, and Carpentier was represented by Oscar Flick. The tossing of the powder puff at the end of the third round announced Carpentier was “knocked out.” H was a great get-up and a great get-off and the ring fans enjoyed the stunt immensely. Mr. Wheeler Lucas, talented local musician, favored the club with sev eral piano selections between the numbers. , Cigars and cigarettes and an abuncl ance of punch was served during the evening to the members and their guests. It was a delightful affair and the best evidence of its success that * art early repetition of another ■ program is anticipated. Contributing to the program were | E. (3 . Leonhard, Wilson b. Callendar, E. E. Lucas, Harry b. Saucier, Carl Marshal, Bernard | Shields, E. J. Lacoste, R. W.-Webb, j W. H. Starr, Rene J. Toca, ,L. H. Bomb, ‘Oscar Flick, J. J.

RUSSELL ENTERS THE RACE FOR SENATE AGAINST HARRISON Governor Say Following Vindication of Suit For Damages by Miss Birk- Head He Is Now Candidate for United States Senate—Statement Given Out to Reporter of Memphis Afternoon Newspaper—Announce ment Creates No Surprise—Said He Would Be Candidate Some Time Since. AN ADVERSE DECISION WOULD HAVE WRECKED SUCH AMBITION. a Russell a Candidate For Senate and Bilbo Candidate For Governor Quite Interesting—Neither Are Friendly—One Would Oppose the Other-—Both Have Rode in Same Band Wagon—Neither Speak As They Pass By—Russell’s Chances Nil. Following his vindication in the trial before the federal court at Ox ford, Governor Lee M. Russell an nounced to a Correspondent 6f a Memphis afternoon paper that he would be a candidate for the United States Senate to succeed Senator Pat Harrison when the latter’s term ex pires. The announcement of the governor created no surprise, as such was ex pected if he won the damage suit in stituted by Miss Birkhead. Ah ad verse decision would have wrecked any hope or aspiration he may have entertained to enter the race against Senator Harrison, as the latter is gen erally assumed to be a candidate to succeed himself. The campaign is yet many months off and a number of changes and po litical shifts can be expected before that time. Former Governor Bilbo, who may spend a few unpleasant mo ments when he is brought before the federal court on a charge of con tempt, has already announced as a candidate for governor to succeed Russell. Both have always rode in the same political band wagon, but are not on friendly terms —they ‘Mo not speak as they pass by.” Their attitude towards each other in the coming campaign is an un known quantity just now, but it is agreed that if the two continue at loggerheads it will blow up each other’s cause and neither will stand the ghost of a show before the elec torate of Mississippi. Bilbo's candidacy for governor is looked upon as.a huge joke, while not even the most optimistic of Russell’s supporters believe that he stands the ghost of a show when pitted against the doughty Pat Harrison fa* a seat iu the Senate. With the old Varda nian faction divided against itself the probabilities are strong that it will again be overwhelmingly defeated and smashed beyond hope of recovery. The faction opposed to the Varda manites is now the dominant political force in Mississippi and Russell will find himself making an uphill fight to beat Harrison. —Mrs. Owen Crawford and sister in-law, Miss Loufse Crawford, have returned from a delightful visit to friends at Cincinnati, Ohio. —Mrs. Albert Heitzmann purchas ed this week the family residence in Kellar street, from her sister, Mrs. Owen, of Mobile, for a cash consid eration of $1,000.00. —Judge A.
