I EUNICE TRIMS LOCAL TEAM Fast Game of Basketball Here Last Friday Resulted in an 18 to 12 Victory for Eunice The Eunice basketball team came over to Opelousas last Friday after noon and politely clipped the feath j i j ■ I I < ers off a club composed of Opelousas i and Washington players, to the tune of 18 to 12. The game was one of the fastest pulled off here in several months, many difficult and spectac ular plays being staged. Eunice boasts of one of the best basketball clubs in this section of the state and has a record of ten victor lies in fourteen games. The athletic spirit is very evident in the western St. Landry metropolis and the school team is being backed to the limit by rooters and patrons of the school. As a result, the Eunice boys under the leadership of Professors Aycock and Brunson feel they can trim the best clubs in this territory and are chal lenging all comers. BATTERY EXPERT AT HAAS GARAGE ! I I I I ! ; ! ! j j E. H. Phillips from Dallas Wil lard Factory Branch Now is Head Garage's Department The Haas Garage has made im provements in its battery department and has brought it up to one of the best fitted up battery plants in this part of the state. With the installa tion of a thoroughly complete plant, it was necessary, therefore, to en gage the services of a thoroughly competent expert, so Senator Haas, owner «of the big Main street garage, was advised by the Willard battery people to employ E. H. Phillips, bat tery expert out of the Pallas branch. Mr. Phillips is now in charge of that very important, department of the big concern and has already made much headway in rendering excellent expert advice to motorists. He is an affable, likeable sort of chap and has | made a number of friends in the short time he has been here. He is confident of building for his employer } the biggest battery business in ( Southewest Louisiana. SQUIRES MAY COME HERE Lake Charles Live Wire Ten- j dered Secretaryship of Lo cal Chamber Commerce ' L. L. Squires, formerly connected with the federal government in war drives, first secretary of the Greater Agricultural College, and one of the best known public spirited men in Louisiana, will in all likelihood be the new secretary of the Opelousas Chamber of Commerce. Mr. Squires was tendered the po sition by members of the board of di rectors and after going over the field with the present secretary, who re tires next month, virtually decided that Opelousas was the best city in the state in which to live The Lake Charles live wire is well known in this city and when it was rumored that he might come here, many of the most prominent business people of this city expressed confi dence that he would make one of the best commercial sercetaries in the en tire state. In the event that Mr. Squires accepts the position, he will immediately inaugurate a campaign for a parish-wide commercial body, with the view of putting St. Landry in the forefront of progressive Louisi ana parishes. WANT MAN TO SERVE IN THREE PARISHES Demonstration Agent Needed for Portions of Avoyelles, Rapides and St. Landry j There is a move on foot to have a demonstration agent appointed to j serve portions of the parishes of St 4 i Landry, Avoyelles and Rapides. This ! move is being headed by R. D.'Nibert, I secretary of the Business Men's ! League of Bunkie, and backed by W. R. Perkins, director of the extension division of the Louisiana State Uni versity. Mr. Nibert and a committee of rep resentative citizens of St. Landry will in all likelihood appear before the po i lice jury next month to ask for an appropriation to help defray the ex pense. The argument advancecf is that the three parishes in question are entirely too large to be properly ■ administered by one demonstrator, and as the outlying sections of the j three parishes are so far from their ; parish seats, they can not be worked j properly by the present demonstrat ors and one man to take care of a ! ward in each of the three parishes I could accomplish great results. It I is understood that the demonstration I agents of Avoyelles, Rapides and St. I Landry have consented to the propo ! sition, and as leading business men ; and farmers of the three parishes are ! backing the move, it is generally be ! lieved that the various police juries j will make the necessary «appropria j tions, thereby insuring the appoint ment of a farm demonstrator to be stationed at Bunkie and to work in co-operation with those of St. Lard /, Avoyelles and Rapides.

DAUGHTERS TO GIVE A DANCE j First After-Easter Entertain ment to Take Place at Bar rilleaux's on April 7 The Daughters of Isabella, through their Grand Regent, Mrs. A. L. An drus, announced during the week that the first after-Easter dance to be giv en in Opelousas would be held at the Barrilleaux Auditorium under the auspices of the Daughters, on Wed nesday night, April 7. The Banner Band has been engaged for the occa sion and as it is one of the most pop ular bands in this section of the state there is no doubt that the dance will be largely attended. The Daughters are giving this dance for the purpose of raising funds to fittingly entertain the visiting ladies at the state convention of the K. of C., to be held here very shortly. It was at first planned to give the dance on Easter Monday night, but the difficultly in engaging a band for that night made it impossible for the dance to be given then.
