WORK UPON 4 REVETMENT IN
Driving piling for the revetment
on the bank of the Mississippi at
the plant of the Algiers Saw and
Planing Mill, between Lavergne and
Verret .streets, was begun by the
Orleans Parish Levee Board's con
tractor, John Reiss, Wednesday
morning with the prospects that the
revetment may be completed within
the next thirty days, it was stated
Despite special efforts of the
board, it will ant now be practicable
to complete the protection work be
fore the spring's high water, it was
said. A considerable amount of
levee work will be done in addition
to the revetment and work on this
probably cannot be commenced until
the spring's flood recedes. The to
tal cost of both improvements will
be about $40,000.

L. MUNSTERMANN, CHIEF CLERK
TO THE MAYOR, GETS BUSY
WITH DEPAjITMENT OF
BEN MORATH TO THE RESCUE.
The residents of Algiers, living
near McDonoghville and in the vi
cinity of the Naval Station and the
other outskirts of the town, are ex
ceedingly pleased with the work
that is being done by' Deputy Com
missioner of Public Works. Ben
Morath. Throughl the influence of
Louis Munstermann, who attended
to some personal complaints about
poor drainage in several sections in
Algiers, work was begun in digging
ditches to relieve much of the stag
nant water which was the subject
of much complaint.
Mr. Morath has had a prison gang
working in Algie. cleaning out and
renewing dttcbhnd at the same
time he is giving our free boarders,
which cost our citizens money in
taxes, an opportun4ty to earl their
meals while at the city jail.
It is certainly very commendable
to our department of public works
when the citizens see that the pris
oners are worked instead of taking
the people's money to pay for out
side labor. S
We thank Mr. Munstermann and
Mr. Morath for this good work.
Within a short time more ditches
will be dug on Farragut, Nelson and

B-itween the hours of 7:30 anr:
9:30 Sunday night, thieves vnter,'
the school. The entrance was cain
ed by forcing two of the basetme:1
doors open. Upon reaching the
upper floor, the principal's otfi.
was visit' d, entrance being gained
by breaking' the locks of the dour.
The desk was broken open and sev
e ral stamp cards containing stamps
were taken. Every nook and cor
ner of the desk was ransacked. but
nothing was available. The library
was , ntered also; the desk lock
broken, andtl the contents scatter.ed
all about. The Mimeograph and
Znmimeo.-cope were tampered with.
but no material damage was done
to them. Every class room was en
tered: all desk drawers that were
locked were broken open, and the
contents scattered about. We pre
sume that the object of the visit was
our "school bank," but it was not
located; evidently the thieves were
very much discouraged with their
visit. for their reward was very lit
tle. The greatest loss was the
damage which was done to the beau
tiful school furniture.. The rob
bery was discovered by Mrs. L. Le
Court. who, upon her return from
church at 9:30. discovered the base
ment doors and a rear window on
the second floor open.

"Give Me Liberty!"
On Saturday, March 4th, 1921, a
noisy crowd of school boys realised
the full meaning of the above
words, as they were for a time to
be free--free from books, from dis
cipline-yes, free as the birds of the
air. Supplied with an over-abun
dance of provisions such as hungry
boys would need and any amount of
fishing material, these wild young
sters made the air ring with their
yelling and loud talking, which
sounded somietime- like a,. lndiae
Through the kindness of one of
icl)o:uqgb No. 4's ol:n boys, a g'.od
strong horse and wagon brought
this troop into the heart of the
woods somewhere in the neighbor
hood of the "Lily Cabal." The
crowd really intended to crayfish.
but by some mistake, almost all of
them seemed to have an idea that
the canal was a bath-tub, because
each one of them made a "81ipsies."
Those who enjoyed this outing
were: Ernest Andry, Earl Angelo,
Edward Aucoin, Harold Clapper,
Bernard Covell, Armand Delcasel,
