Indications that the city will be more
beautifuly and profusely decorated
than ever before for the patriotic pag
eant which the carnival association
will present during Mardi Gras. The
association has contracted for decora
tions to be strung across Palafox
street and Geo. A. Emanuel and B. E.
Clutter, of the dectorations committee,
have secured the assurance of prac
tically all merchants in the business
district that their places of business
will be decorated for the occasion.
At the meeting of the carnival as
sociation directors held last night it
was reported that excellent progress
is being made in the construction of
the floats, each of which will be of
striking beauty.
The automobile parade promises to
be a great success this year, as a spir
it of friendly rivalry is developing
among car owners who will strive to
present the most artistic auto in the
parade. A number of entries have
teen promised and the committee is
confident that the largest number of
cars ever in a local parade will be
decorated for the occasion.
The carrtyal association is being
commended for its action in eliminat
ing all objectionable features from the
Mard Gras celebration this year. There
will be no masking and no confetti,
and the celebration will be strictly of
a patriotic nature.
