VI("T)I'Y ('ELEIRIATION. At a minstrel show in 'Mississippi the other night an old darky got so tickled at some of the antics of the performers that he rolled from his seat onto the ground and still rolled and laughed. At the Woodmen Victory Celebra tion, which has been postponed from I the 11th to Monday the 20th, there I will be a Plantation Minstrel. but the laughing darkey in the audience will probably not be so conspicuous as was the above mentioned. All the shows aid rides will be in running order by 7:30 on the 20th. and it has been promised that a welcoming I address will be made from the plat form of one of the attractions at about this time. Mrs. Jim Eylward, who is directing the Victory Celebration for the House Committee of the Woodmen, has been 4 assured that ample street car service i will be arranged to take care of thel crowds from Gretna and all parts of A!giers.

In the amounts deposited in the School Banks for the month of De cember, McDonogh No. 4 occupied second place in all the New Orleans schools, with $233.02 to its credit, while Belleville was sixth with $112.93 to its credit. In January McDonogh No. 4 was fifth, depositing $35.94 and Belleville was twelfth, depositing $11.29. The different schools are working hard in this contest. The school that is instrumental in the opening up of the largest number of new savings ac counts between January first and the end of the school year in June will be presented with a silver loving cup. New Christmas saving clubs accounts will give the sdhool credit. So if you have an account to open give it to one of the pupils who will deposit the folder in the school bank, and it will in turn be deposited in any bank whose name appears on the folder. Every boy or girl who now has, or who will open a savings account with any of the banks whose names appear on the folder can become a member of the Public School Savings Club. There are no dues or fees. Each week a bulletin shows the amount deposited by the different schools, the leader being credited with a red star. The school having the largest number of red star credits at the end of the June season will re ceive the loving cup. McDONOGH No. 5. McDonogh No. 5 is still without a principal, waiting the action of the New Orleans School Board. The routine of the school, however, has not been disturbed and the children and faculty are waiting daily for the new principal, who is to take the place, which was made vacant when Miss Megget was promoted. A letter was mailed to little Roger Deverre. our noble little French brother, and the little ones are eagerly awaiting an answer from overseas. Pennies for our adopted brother are coming in with continu ed interest, which shows the Joy that this work brings to our little Americans in McDonogh No. 5. McDONOGH No. 4 NOTES. Work in Ateletics is progressing favorably, two regular teams, prac ticing every evening. Entries of teams will be made Jan. 16th. The boys have all been officially meas ured and their testis organized, and the most important thing to be done is for the different players to prac tice their special line of work so that some games may be won in the coming series. Mr. ,Mervin Umbach has kindly volunteered to coach the boys after school, as he has had fine experi ence in this popular sport. We cer tainly appreciate his efforts to help our boys and hope they will en deavor to do their best under his guidance. We are also indebted to Master IBehrman French for coming to the.school grounds every evening to give our players pointers about the gama.and. to plai. with them. We hope he will continue to come and help Mr. Umbach. 5Ir. and Mrs. C. L. Stumpf have kindly offered us two fine lots on Homer St., to be used as a school garden and work will be begun in the near future. It will be a little inconvenient for us to get to this section of Algiers, but we appreciate the fact that we secured them and they were so willIgly offered us. and we thank Mr. and Mrs. Stumpt and hope they wl ~e rewrarded by eeing the results obtained by the boys in this Woitk.

Jan. 14th, at 7:30 p. mu. Although not many members were present, tile .at tendance was satisfactory, when \\,e consider the amount of sickness pre valent in the community. We were pleased to have Mrs. A. J. Amuedo, our organizer with us on this occasion and hope to ssee her at every future meeting. Sick ness in her home caused her absence a from meetings. As chairlady of the Committee on By-Laws, she read the results of the work of that committee. The By-Laws were adopted as read. The Club presented the school with all supplies necessary for first aid treatments. The boys of the Seventh Grade are making the medi cine cabinet, under the direction of aMr. Ortland, our Manual Training I teacher. The Club decided to go on record, as favoring the closing of schools at 3 p. m. Telephone service will hbe installed, and a Victrola will be I purchased at an early date. A set of Holmes" Travelogues, consisting of thirteen volumes, lea ther-bound, finely illustrated and ex- I cellently printed, was purchased for ( the school library. They cozt eighty 4 dollars. but these works are well worth the money, and will serve as c a great source of help to both teach- v :rs and pupils. It was decided to have social meet ings at regular Intervals and` our next regular meeting will be one of that kind. We hope. to have a very r large attendance of both fathers and mothers on that occasion, as we know everyone will have a pleasant time and friendlier relations will be established between the members. Mr. F. Henning addressed the meeting and in the course of his re marks, he deplored the fact that very few fathers are interested enough in the welfare of their sons to attend meetings. He said that the work of the Public Schools was J, for the welfare of the nation and cl that it was the foundation of every- s4 thing that means the uplifting of de this great democracy. He said that he always believed in co-operating with the women-teachers of boys, be- F cause they have difficult and im portant work to do, and they should be helped -by all parents, because si they work for the betterment of L mankind. rHe expressed a desire a for a larger attendance of fathers at ri future meetings. C Mr. E. W. Hynes, assistant super- i intendent of Public Schools, visited our school last week and said he al was very pleased and satisfied with g the work done in the several grades ri he visited and the progress made U by the school. o0 SPECIAL NOTICE If You Desire to Help the } Jewish War Relief Fund subscriptions to which will remain open until Saturday, you may send in your contribu tion to Mr. Julius Bodenger 157 Delaronde St. Give your mite to the great cause for relief of the staving Jews.
