Lafayette, La., Oct. 9, 1911. Special Correspondence, Clarion. The week at the Industrial In stitute has been filled with the activities o f student organiza tions. T h e literary societies, the Attapakpas and the Avatar, have had business meetings and formed programs for the season. The school paper, The V e r milion, has elected its new edi torAt~-chief, Mr. Roy Aycock, of Rapidie parish, and its new busi ness manager, Mr. E1ank Dai gle, of Lafayette parish, a n d will shortly send out its first issue. The basket ball teams of both sexes, foot ball team, ten nis club, and class organizations have elected officers. The ath letic association, which includes all the students in school, has amended its constitution so as to make its governing board con sist of the Faculty Committee on Athletics, one representative of each class in school by years, one representative of the stu dents in technical departments, and two young ladies, one from the boarding department and one from the town students. The representatives thus chosen were R. Delferes of 1912, M. Bercegeay of 1913, Marshall Den bo of 1914, Thomas Guilbeau of 1915, Walter Williams of the "Techs," Miss Martha Pellerin of the town students, and Miss Lily Breaux of the boarding students. Miss Elise McConnell, of Baton Rouge, was chosen Vice-President. R. H. Agate, Secretary, J. E. Hogan, Treas urer, and R. Delferes, President. The first important athletic event was the football game with L. S. U. in Baton Rouge on October 7th. Other games have been scheduled with Tulane Varsiy, Oct. 18, Louisiana Oollege, Pineville, Jefferson College, Convent, North Louis iana Industrial, State Normal at Natchitoches, and others. A special effort is being made to stimulate both pupils and teachers in the Institute to main tain a high score on attendance and punctuality in the various classes and departments for the term, a valuable prize being offered to the class making the best record; the plan being so outlined as to secure team work in classes rather than more in dividual effort. Each class is given an original capital score which is dimirnished each week and month in accordance with the number of absences and tardinesses recorded for that period. A teacher's absence or tardiness or failure to dismiss classes at the proper moment, etc., counts ten times as much as in the case of a pupil. Nearly two hundred books were added to the library, being selected by t h e teachers of English and history for refer ence and collatteral reading in these departments. The department of instrumen talmusicat the Institute, which has heretofore been almost negligible in point of numbers in attendance, has sud denly increased in attendance so much as to occupy the entire time of Prof. Sontag, the teacher of that subject; and it is likely that a second teacher will be re quired in this subject at the be ginning of the second term. Prof. Sontag also trains a stu dent brass band of twenty pieces. The special class in Home Economics for those who are preparing to teach that subject has now enrolled twenty-eight students, over-crowding the class-room and the capacity of the equipment provided. More equipment and an additional teacher to assist Miss Kelley in this work will shortly be pro vided. PINE LEADS IN LUMBER OUTPUT 0 F THE UNITED STATES. Washington, Oct. 10.--About 48 per cent of the total lumber output of the United States in 1908 was pine, showing how im portant to the lumber industry of the country the thirty-seven species of pine grown in the United States are. No one species grows in all the States, yet, with perhaps one ex ception, no State is without one Or more. Some occupy large regions in considerable abun dance, while others are so scarce that few persons ever see or rec ognize them. Yet no species of pine is so scarce that it is not made in some way to serve man's need. Four important timber trees of the Southeastern United States are usually grouped as one in the lumber markets and are sold un der the common name of yellow pine. They are the long leaf pine, short leaf pine, loblolly pine and Cuban pine. While in ap pearance the woods of these four trees are so nearly alike that it is sometimes difficult to distinguish one from the other, still, in some particulars, their is considerable difference. Although the long leaf pine, white pine, Western yellow pine, Western white pine and the lob lolly produce most of the pine lumber manufactured in the United States, the United States considers each species separately, giving in detail its physical prop erties, the supply, its early uses, manufacture and products and in the case of the more important species, specifies, in Forest Ser vice Bulletin No. 39, the more important uses to which it is put. The places which some species occupy are very humble, and they can never rise much in the scale of usefulness, yet each one is entitled to its own in dividu ality. GOLDEN STATE VOTES AiAINST WOMAN'S SUFFRAGE. San Francisco, Oct. 10.--Early and incomplete returns from forty-four precincts in the State, including San Francisco, show a heavy vote against woman's suffrage and indicate that it has been defeated. The returns also show heavily in favor of the adoption of the initiative, refer endum and recall. The latter in eludes the judiciary. The South the Best Place After All. If the boys of the South re alize the chances that are at hand for them, and that work will get anything they can rea sonably want, the experiences of other sections of the country show them that the world is at their bidding. It is not necessary to go to Iowa or Pennsylvania or Cali fornia for an example. In ten years some of the South has doubled its agricultural yield. Texas and Georgia have grown to be among the foremost farm ing states of the whole great United States. The boys of the South are doing things, you see, and they are only discovering what a boy on the farm can do if he will. One thing the boy of the South needs to learn, and that is the value of time. He must get into his head that the boy in the army who steps sixty times a minute goes twice as far in an hour as the shambling negro who takes thirty steps a minute. Activity counts for as much as anything else. Activity is what makes progress. -Progressive Farmer.

While the business man is confined to his desk in the city, the telephone keeps him in touch with wife and family, though they may be many miles away, summering at some pleasant resort. During his own vacation the business man relies upon the tele phone. He is free from care, for he knows that he can be reached at one by telphone should important matters require his attention. At the vacation home also, the telephone proves so convenient in arrainging games and outings with friends and ordering sup plies from the distant markets.
