The glad tidings of victory were not received with Jnore rejoicing by. any, than by our Red Cross workers. Besides the joy, they felt the keenl satisfaction of having had a part in S. bringing about this wonderful event. for They are back of the fighting men day with their earnest patient. steady work. J. While hostilities have ceased, it to seems that our work will be in-, ely creased. There are many wounded: men overseas. There are needy and ast destitute hundreds in the occupied i a territory. This means work for the nie Red Cross and workers are urged to come to headquarters now at home. al K. ('. Hall, and assist in making the his pads, for the men who are suffering and will need our products for use months to come. 225 pads have been completed since the last report. er, This does not bring the total to one on thousand, which is but one half of nd our allotment, not to say anything of the October allotment, which has ive not been touched, because of the' he epidemic. If you are happy at the se outlook of things, come give a few hours work for the men who have a made things what they are. All work was suspended on Mon day and our Branch workers took ay part in the great celebration that re night. Work was resumed Tuesday at one o'clock, with a large working : force. ayi Our canteen workers, though not pa- officially organized, have been doing 'or admirable work. On Wednesday of last week, 563 men and officers were ta- served with coffee and sandwiches. is On Friday, 650 men were served by of our workers; 150 gallons of coffee were dripped. 80 of which were sent nd to the train for enjoyment prepared- r it-ness. t Mrs. Rufus Foster will be over ( Thursday afternoon, at 2:30, to for- c - mally organize our canteen service. s Every one interested is requested to nm be at the K.

P 1e, RED CROSS THE BENEFICIARY. b r in rather a novel way the Red u Cross has been made a beneficiary a In. the sum of two dqllars and fifty w m cetts. -Thb ?ollowing recital of facts b 1 will explain this donation. Mr. J. n, L. Jordy, a prominent citizen of the re other bank of the river was sum- cc ar. moned before the Traffic Court over w which Judge Thos. P. Goff presides is w during the month of October for J; t, speeding. Owing to his being called p1 out of the city on important busi to nees the case was continued Mr. Jor dy appeared before Judge Goff last a Friday to answer the accusation. He stated that he operated a car 9 years and was very careful and that o0 perhaps the officer making the com- tl plaint could .be mistaken. With ai these contentions before .him Judge T Goff, with the purpose of doing Jus- di tice stated that he would postpone a the case, as the officer was not pres- w eat being absent on leave. Mr. tt t Jordy said that coming back to court ti again would interfere very much with ej his bueiness, and that he would tt rather pay a small fine than lose ni time or that he would make a dona- m tion to the very worthy organisa. tion, the American ,Red Cross, but F4 y that he disliked very much that any h public record should appear against , t him for having violated the law. SUnder the elcuomatanees Judge Goff kr gave him the benefit of the doubt, g and accepted, the compromise sug- a gested by Mr. Jordy and turned the i, amount over to the Red Crose.

I Win. J. Sonneman, Secretary Treasurer of the Dixie Homestead a Association, in speaking of Real Es- f tate Transfers and mortgage loans, C says that with the Government's re- t quest of the various banks through- L out the country, that loans be made u to customers and clients only for cer tain purposes, principally for com- P mercial uses, it is possible that ae great many mortgage loans would r, be diverted to Homesteads, Institu- 8' tions organized and operated for that P purpose only, and who in that man- A ner relieve the banks of a great deal P of that class of paper, which is not a considered a liquid Asset. We find the sales of the better class of prop- b erty for home purpose bringing very u good prizes today, this is proven by n the many inquiries and fairly good al demand for loans through our As- be sociation. 1,4 w GREAT MARDI GORAS OBSERV.

One of the \ difficulties which presents itself ill f making this a larger Yard is the lack r of skilled workmen, and the Industrial I ,Manager looks to the Shop ('ommnit tees to hell) him out in obtaining (, miuch needed add.tion men. The next difficulty is the lack of equipment, the most needed being small machines. and the Industrial Manager will make every effort to procure them. If men hr and machines can be obtained, the working forces of this Yard can be I materially increased, particularly as ti I we have had a large amount of money e approved for expenditure on the h y water front. tl The improvement of the water front a will consist in shifting the dry dock so as to give more berthing space for e vessels and improving and enlarging a the building ways. With these itl- tt k provements there will be more work Stor many additional men in practic r ally all trades, and the Industrial 1Manager is very anxious to see this Yard grow and become a permanent b t fixture in New Orleans. Every man f in this Yard can help towards this Si end by saying a good word about o working conditions at the Naval Sta tion and the steady empl-yment ci provided. This will go a long way to wards making desirable men apply for work at this Station. and until we can increase the working force there is a no use for the management at this Yard to attempt to obtain a greater amount of work. With the interest tl a which the supervisory forces and the K r workmen of this Yard have always shown whenever anything came up w e which tended towards the betterment tl cf this Station. the Industrial Man r ager believes that it will not be a N particularly difficult job to enlarge this plant, and it each one put his p shoulders to the wheel it can certainly ti be done. Improvements in the Yard are con- 1i tinuously going on, and we are now ia beginning to move into the new ci Joiner Shop, which will realize ad- w ditional room for sheetmetal work. m The new Joiner Shop will contain, re in addition to all joiner work, the sail loft. and the woodworking depart- to ment should be much improved by he this addition, as this will be one of fu the best woodworking shops in the w South. In I The Industrial Manager wishes to impress on all mechanics at this Yard TI t the necessity of each man' studying 3 up the theory of his trade as well as " the practice, If he wishes to rise to the supervisory force. With open ex- bh aminatlons for leadingmen, every man b( is giving a chance, providing he ap plies himself and puts in a certain to amount of study outside of working be hours. It is absolutely essential for a man to know the theory of his work Q and be able to put it on paper if he nc expects to rise in the supervisory a force because a large part of the duty in of any supervisor is the ability to a make sketches, estimates and do other necessary paper work, so that the men under him may know what they do. Oz Many mistakes In the shipbuilding Ai business are made from supervisors lel not knowing Standard Practices in wa Ship Construction, which means that fu the individual supervisor does not W know the Standard Practices of his no trade. Pamphlets covering practically on all Standard Practices are issued by a the Navy Department and embodying the best methods known in ship build ing. These pamphlets are available, and any man who takes enough inter - eat in his work to try to elevate him self can obtain one of these pamphlets b by applying to the Shop Superin- th tendent, and if the pamphlets are not on hand we will endeavor to get an Va additional supply from the Navy De partment in Washlgton. In The Yard at the present time has pr as much work as we can comfortably ws undertake. So many men have been s sick with influenza recently that re naturally the working forces and ch supervisory forces have been most El seriously handicapped and practically il all work on the Yard as a result has pr been set back a certain amount. Epidemics such as this will happen, LI and work packs ·p to asuch an extent Lt that those of us who are not sick are Ju required to do more work in order to keep things going. This. so far as I R know, has been cheerfully done by At the Yard workmen, sapervisory forces Ve and officers of the Industrial Depart- Is ment. Ka E. C.
