ST. JOSEPH, - - LA. FRTDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1917. / IN NIIE'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION RIVE. Next in importance to the Red Crase Society, in the work of look ing after the safety and comfort of our soldiers, both in the training camps at home and in the trenches in France, comes the Young Men's Christian Association, an organiza tion, composed principally of young men, that is trying to provide our boys, who are fighting or preparing to fight for the liberties of mankind. with some of the comforts of home. In every army camp the Y. M.C. A. has erected large buildings wherein religious exercises are held twice a week, and which are fitted up with libraries, reading rooms, writing rooms, which are in fact social clubs, where the boys, after the hard work of the day is over, can meet and en joy the comforts provided for them. In addition to providing them with home or club comforts, all kinds of amusements and entertainments, such as concerts, moving pictures, lectures, etc., are furnished free by this splendid organization, and as tihe result of the activities of the Y. ]K. C. A. army life is made easier and more pleasant for our boys. To do all this requires money, and money can only be obtained by sub csription among the people at home. Next week the drive will start toj raise the sum of $25,000,000 and the parish of Tensas is expected to subscribe the sum of $1,500. Our people have been generous in the est, they have been alive to every duty and have liberally responded to every call that has been made on o them, and we are oconfident that this will be no exception to the rule; let every person give something, no matter bow little, oversubscribe the amount asked for and thus keep Teees on the Roll of Honor. aMS i'WL V.

' School Hapealgs. . ,b The Round Table Soelety of the High School met Priday evening at 8:10 o'clook. The meeting was aboot as successful as any they have had this year, though we are sorry to say n is not much. Miss Elizabeth 8mith's song was unanimously applauded as the best number. _ Miss Grace Worrell was absent from school last Tnesday,Wednesday, Thurs Iday and Friday on sooount of very serious illness. All of her sohool friends are espelially glad to see her dear face st school again. The student body weloomed the presence of Miss Lynch on Monday morning. Miss Lynch was absent Thursday and Friday attending the State Fair at Shreveport. K There is a rumor of a duel between I two worthy young gentlemen of the High Sohool-one in the 8th grade and one in the 11th. Who the quar rel is over we are not at liUbrty to say and when it will come off we do not know. The opinion of the school is - that both be spanked and put to. bed. It makes our heart glad to see the S great number of young ladles so in - dustriously plying their knitting need iles with such vigor. The soldiers in the trenches will no doubt be much I glad than we. They will almost be I tempted to reverse an old saying into I "It is more blessed to receive than to 1 give. It is a notorious fact that there should be more names on the High School Honor Roll next month, uas the Gra Ommar Department is leadnlog by a l arge majority. The primary and the 4th and 5th grades entertained the school on Fri day afternoon at 3 o'clock with a Halow'een Party. The room was darkened and decorated with grin ning Jack-o'Lantemrn, black cats and witches. A little witch came riding in on a broom and announced the program, which was: Jack-o'lanterns...Elizabeth O'Kelley Song-America ....................All How the Jack o'Lanterns Fright ened the Indians......Annie Sohauf The Shadow March...James Johnston Recitation-Little Orphan Annie ......................Edith Ashford Recitation-The Night Wind . ......................... Lorls Levy Reading-The Black Cat Who Walked by Himself ......... .......... ..Howard Nettervile The other rooms visited the party during the recitations. There was a delightful aftermath consisting of fortune telling, bobbing for apples: the boys bobbed for them and the girls bit them off a strink; they then pinned the tall on the Black Cat.

Our '.h())(l %k a' j ula November 2nd, by Alr. Shaddo· k. Mr. Shaddock is secretary of the Y. M. C. A. that is doing such wonderful work in the U. S. Army wherever it hap pens to be. He explained to us how the Y. M. C. A. was aiding our troops, especially in the Iraining camps, by supply inig them with such amusements as: three good clean moving picture shows a week, with the best Lyceum courses and with a circus as often as they can get one. In Camp Beauregard there are 30,000 soldiers in the making; there are 30,000 books which the soldiers are at liberty to read during the six hours they have for their own recreation every day. There are Athletic Clubs where skilled instructors help Uncle Sam in keeping the young soldiers in the pink of con dition. Long writing tables and writ in, ni.ate rlaiL are furnished them free. All of this wonderful work is being su,'ce.sfully carried out, not only in C;amp B. ure.:arrl and in other camps in the Unite : States, but wherever there are American, troops there are the secretaries of the Y. M. O. A. to U help keep your ,,"iy, your brother, your husb, md, your nephew, to say nothing o' your sweethearts and friends comfortable and to divert his mind from the terrible things going on around him, and to help keep him from going absolutely insane. We lit tie realize, as Mr. Shadock told us, the difficulty they have in keeping them rom going crazy and to keep them occupied while they are not fighting. The Y. M. C. A. is trying to raise more money in order to continue their work and it is a duty of ours which should be a pleasure to give to them in order to provide for our soldiers. A splendid example was set by the Louisiana State Normal School, which raised approximately $2,000 in k few minutes. Tensa parish has been asked to raise the paltry sum of $1500 and it is hoped that when the drive is made the people will show the patriotism they have previously shown in the Liberty Bond Drive and the Red Cross Drive. The Boy Scouts and the Camp Fire Girls are to unite with the others in securing monby for the drive and we hope the publio will recognise them as such. Rev. Geo. Fox conducted services at Wesley Chapel last Sunday morning and at the Union Church, St. Joseph, Sunday night. This was Mr. Fox's last service at Wesley during his pas torate of the Waterproof circuit and his appoinment for the third Sunday at St. Joseph will also be his last ser vice here, as the Louisiana Conference convenes at Minden, on Wednesday the 28th November and will remain in session until the following Monday, at which time he will be transferred to another work, it being the irrevo cable rule of the Methodist Episcuopal Church, South, not to allow their min isters to serve one circuit longer than four years continuosly, and Mr. Fox has been with us since the Conference of 1913, having, by earnest request of his congregations, been reappointed to this work each succeeding year. s During his pastorate of this circuit Mr. Fox has made many warm friends among our people and has quite won r their confidence and respect. He is a welcome caller at any home in the f parish and is universally popular with all classes and creeds. We regret the necessity that compels as to give him I up and heartily command him and his good wife to whatever charge he may r be sent. -m..--- @-- . PREPAREDNESS m This is the slogan of wise men.
