Despite the fact that the rain was falling in torrents at the time, these young citizens of Uncle Sam's great and glorious domain, assembled at the Canal St. Ferry Landing at the appointed time and proceeded across the river to the place assigned to the schools before the formation of the parade. The rain still continued and there followed a period of doubt as to whether there could be a parade or not. The Nation's motto. "In God is Our Trust," seemed to be the prayer of the people of the Crescent City, and soon that prayer was an swered. The clouds lifted, the rain stopped, and the parade was formed. The boys of No. 4, at a given sig nal from Mr. E. Etier. took their as signed place in the line and every one of the number marched from the beginning of the route to the end. Cheer after cheer greeted them as they marched through the the streets. The banner-bearer was John Beninate and his aids were Sidney Dupuis and Edgley Schrith. The large white satin Red Cross banner was donated and made by the tearh ers of the school. The name of the school and "100 per cent." were suitably arranged on it, and it was the prettiest standard carried by any school. This school bears the distinction of being the only boys' school rep resented and the only one from the Fifth District. These young Americans feel proud that they "did their bit" towards helping their city go "over the top" in this patriotic undertaking, and they will always remember the part they played during this stirring war time. Mrs. M. Hopper and Miss L. E. Averill accompanied the delegation. The boys were: John Beninate. Sidney Dupuis, Edgley Bchroth, Gerald Cooper, Evans Mahoney, Mel ford Pitre, -Reany Angelo. Walter Pope, John Forrest, John Leonard, Joseph Folse, John Cleutat, James Curren, Morris Laufer, Charles Beninate, Hilary Schroder, John Roberts, Dearo Trotter. Donald Gautreaux, Joseph Simon; Edward Holton. The followring boys from this school marched with the Boy Beouts, James Stafford, Felix McAnespy, Philip Saleeby, Milton Acker, Ed ward Williams, Lawrence Menge, Hugh Lilly, Frank Silva, Richard Bilehier, Carl Salseby, Roy Williams, Joseph Weir.

UTTOIiS In response to his querry to Sen ator Itansdeil, Mayor Behrman M.unday morning was advised that young men who volunteered their services to the country and were re jected for physical disability and other causes beyond their control would possibly, in the near future, be awarded buttons showing their status.

According to the Adjutant Gen eral., an act was introduced into the United States Senate to provide such a button, and was passed by the Senate Feb. 5, 1918.
