and was returned in 1916. He was
a locomotive engineer.
M.r. Christy succeeds Col. John T.

Among the victims of pneumonia at
the training camps last month, was
Mr. Nick Skero, "a popular young
soldier who died on Monday, October
28th. at Camp Steward, Newport J
News, Va.
Dceased who resided at 2124 N.
Rampart Street, had been in the navy
for some time, but only last August
did he enlist in the army. He was
a native of New Orleans and was
twenty-one years of age.
The body was shipped home for
burial. He was buried here on No
vember Ist, with military honors.
Mr. Skero is survived by his
mother. Mrs. Anna Skero and by four
sisters, Mrs. J. Clesi of 420 Bouny a
St.. Mrs. J. Blank, Mrs. M. Sparacino, I
and Mrs. B. Bothman. Three nieces *
Miss Josle Clesl, Miss Anna Jones. -
and Mrs. M. Pelican also survive.
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

for the first time in the building.
Capt. Chase and rMrs. Chase honored

entertained the boys with songs and

popular songs. It was an enjoy- t
able evening.
,Attention! Several books have t
been donated but many more can be a
used. However, what the boys need t
most just at present are Inner-player, t
and Victrola records. Help the ii
boys, one record will not hurt any- a

would be gathered. s
Attention! An inform-al dance will b

Mr. Joseph L. Egan, of Achian, a

of ship construction for this Station. it
this construction being steel \esselý.
and every source of the Station will
he taxed to its utmost. 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

In order to make up time lost dur
ing the influenzsa epidemic an hour a
day is to be added to the schedule Ca
when the schools re-open on Novem- tai
ber 18. Also the terms will be extended t
to June 13 for the same purpose. The a
hour will be added by opening half
an hour urlier and closing half an
hour later. the
This was decided at a meeting of
the school board Friday night. At the h
request of Mrs. Buckner Chipley, the di
board granted permission to install m
collection boxes for the fatherless or- be
phaus of PrInce in the schools, eb P11
