D evelopment of
Southwest Louisiana has an
area of 10,711 square miles
which, leaving out of conidera
Ition the parish of Orleans, is
24,100 of the land area of the or
. state. Leaving out the poupla- F
- tion of the city of New Orleans
our estimated population of
340,000 is somewhat over 1-4 the S&
population of the state. Still it
- leaving out the parish of
Orleans, the assessed valuation
of which is $245,000.000 and
there is left for the balance of
- the state a total of $333,455,000
of which this distict carries
approximately $92,000,000 or 1-3,
* this despite the fact that such
- cities as Shreveport, Baton
Rouge. Monroe and Alexandria
are; included in the other
But, if we may welt be proud
of our standing from this view
point, these figures serve but to
accentuate more clearly some
- of our needs.. Thus, in the
matter of railroad tansporta
tion facilities there are in this
district only 977 miles of single
track for each 11 square miles
of our area. In the state as a
whole there are reported, aside
from private lumber roads,
sugar roads, etc., 5,257 miles of
main track or one mile to each
eight and three:fifths square
miles of area. Thus, tlaugh we
have 1-3 of Louisana,s valuation
on 1-4 her area . we have only
four fifths the trackage per mile
of area enjoyed by the state as a J
whole is far behind in mileage
as compared with those of the
Our need of capital for

too by the bank satisties. TheS
total banking capital of the
district is $5,797,000 or

at the Victor theater. Mr. J. H.
State University. and Mr. W. H.
Stakelum, division freight and pas
senger agent of the Southern
Pacific lines, with headquaters at
Lake Charles, made talks regarding
the possibilities and advantages of
the organization of the club, which
was listened to by an audience of
about fifty people, mostly citizens
of the city, and while many of
them were not interested, there
were enough who joined to form a
The organization was formed
with W.S.Durke, president;W. D.
Gooch; vice president; F.W. Sum

the best time to hold the monthly '

court house. All farmers, whether
they intend to become members or
not, are cordially invited to attend L
Saturday was picked out as the
best day to hold the meetings, as
that day is one which the majority
of the country people come to
town, and the business men ex
pressed their desire to have it most
convenient for the farmers, as they
will managed to get to the meet- 1
ings, and the business men will
make it their business to be there.
Since the organization there has
been numerous framers who have 4
,xpressed their desire to be mem- A.

likely that the organization will be
more than doubled.
