ORDINANCE PROBISITS THE
HANGING OF SIGNS
City Electrician Foster Olroyd has
called Mayor Martin Behrman's atten
tion to a clause of the building code,
ordinance 6712, which declares that
no signs shall hang over any public
way, and suggests that the Mayor have
the police watch for violations. Tbth
only exceptions are flags and banners.
"I do not think the ordinance will
<be interpreted so as to force the re
moval of such signs as are up at pres
ent," said Mr. Olroyd. "I do not think
the council intended the ordinance to
have a retroactive effect."
If enforced absolutely agairst all
signs, future or present, the ordinance
would change the appearance of the
principal streets of the city. A large
number of costly electrical signs
would have to come down.

The Mayor was then presented
w!th the following resolutions:
"To the Honorable Martin Behrman,
Mayor of New Orleans:
"Sir-Recognizing the worthy ef

their gratitude and esteem.

Mr. C. E. W. Griffith, the Noted Dante
and Shakesperian Student and In
terpreter, to Again Lecture in New
Orleans-Will Lecture in St. Mary's
Hall, Algiers, the 17th of February.
It is not often that lovers of poetry
and dramatic literature, and especially
of the great artists, Dante, Tasse and
Shakespeare, have the opportunity of
hearing these celebrated authors read
and interpreted as delightfully and ar
tistically as will be done by Mr. C. E.
W. Griffith, the famous Catholic read
er and lecturer.
Mr. Griffith is one of the noblest
and ablest exponents of Catholic faith
in the world of literature. His read
ings will be from the immortal Dante
and Tasse, and from various plays of
the great Bard of Avon. Mr. Grimth
has Just returned from an extensive
tour of the British Isles, where he
gave readings before the most distin
guished audiences. He is engaged to
return there for five months, begin
ning May 1. 1911.
In New Orleans he is expected to
give readings at the Ursuline Convent,
St. Simeon's School, the Dominican
Convent and Sacred Heart Convent.
St. Charles avenue; Holy Angels
Academy, New Orleans College of
Oratory, Jefferson College, and before
the Knights of Columbus.
Mr. Griith needs no introduction to
New Orleans audiences, as he has vis
ited here several times and estab
lished a reputation and following that
few attain. Wherever he goes he is
always a big drawing card, and his
readings are rare treats. He has the
to erament and emotional power of
the actor; he is intensely dramtaic;
his characters are finely drawn, and
he carries his audience with him so
thoroughly into a play by his wonder
ful interpretation of the whole that it
is Just as though one has seen the
play with all the characters presented.
The audience is thrilled by the fervor
of the reader, and Mr. Grifth never
fails to impress his great artistic abil
ity while portraying vividly the moral
lessons that underlle all his readings.
