High School Team Twice De feats Rayne.--Other School News. On last Saturday the Rayne. High School's basket ball team, came over on the morning "0 Gee" to meet the team of the1 Opelousas High School. They met it, also a young lady called Miss D. Feat. The local team of which Miss Etta Obier is Cap tain and Miss Pearl Lewis is Manager, has been faithfully coached by Miss Josephine Ward, the most active and light-footed member of the faculty, and the Rayne team now knows that it is a hard one to beat. The visiting players, of whom Miss Beulah Mo rales is Captain, made a brave fight, and for a while were filled with confidence by their success in winning the first three goals in the first half. But before this half was over, the Opelousas team had the lead, the score then being 49 to 37 in favor of Ope ,lousas. During the second half, the Opelousas team work was too much for the Rayne girls, and these could secure but one goal in every four. The final score at the close of the game was: Opelousas 82, Rayne 52. It is conceded by all that Miss Uetta Mornhinveg, one of the smallest players on the Opelou sas team, was the star of the 1 game. She played as left for-b ward guard and made most of the goals. On Thanksgiving day, last Thursday, the Opelousas team went to Rayne in charge of its popular coach, Miss Ward, to n play the return game, and if need be to take medicine. As I we go to press we hear that the final score at Rayne was: Ope l ousas 48. Rayne 40. It is now too late to get the particulars of I the game, but we are told that our girls were hospitably re ceived and came back well pleased with their trip. Last Saturday two picked 1 players from the Washington E High School came over and met a Messrs. Howard Voorhies and a Edward Estorge in a match t game. The Opelousas players c won both sets, the score being a S6-1 and 6-0. A student charges t that this result was due to How- a 4"'ard's good luck, combined with t Ithe excellent, though sleepy, t i playing of Estorge. ac r Work on the new High School building is progressing rapidly, and it does one good to see the , laborers hustling about like bees and the elevators and conveyors rapidly carrying up and deliver Sing the final layer of concrete upon which the roof will be con- c structed. The basement and two main floors are now prac- c tically complete as to outside *ork, and the roof will soon be 1h on and the finishing ofi the in- f terior started. The Foreman of " Construction, Mr. Henry Ewing, a i f Abbeville, appears to be a C c apable and conscientious work- d Ser, and Mr. Mason, representing the Architects, Messrs. Stevens & Nelson, is giving his constant supervision to the work. It is hard to say just when we will be in the new building, but certainly this session's com-d L mencementwill be held in the Snew auditorium, and next ses- a oian will find us in ournew and 1 palatial quarters, with every n comfort we could expect except that little diversion from the Spassing trains which we have Sgotten accustomed to. Mr. C. A. Ives, the State In- d stitute Conductor, was here last c week on a tour of inspection of : the State's High Schools under;ir orders of Hon. T. H. Harris, b State Superintendent. S i n c e ti the return of Mr. Ives to Baton d Rouge a communication has a come from Mr. Harris in which ci the latter states that Mr. Ives reports our school in very fine tl shape and quite up to the il standard, li Annual Financial Report of Clerk of City of Opelousas Continued from page two EARNIflGS OF THE POWER PLANT.

Very Y Rev. M. A. Grace, S. J., Presi d dent of St. Charles College, offi- 1 f ciated. The bride was robed in an imported satin charmeuse, s with veil artistically draped with 1 ' orange ulossoms. Leaning on K. the arm of her brother, Dr. W. B. Barry of Alexandria, she ! e marched up to the beautifully I 5decorated altar to the melodi- t g ous strains of a beautiful wed- E - ding march played by Mrs. S. 1 e Feucht, sister of the groom, on E d the organ, and Mr. Chaussier, I s musical professor of St. Charles t s College, on the violin. The t s bride's cousin, Miss Lucille Cas s tille of Opelousas, acted as c n bridesmaid, while her brother, c Mr. F. L. Barry, was best man. t , After the ceremony refresh- t s ments were served at the resi , dence of the bride's mother to e the immediate family and Rev. l1 Father Grace, S. J., and Rev. e Fathers Fontan, S. J., and c Moore, S. S., the two pastors of c 's the Church. The wedding cake e was cut and the ring went toic - Mr. Roy Edwards of Opelousas, I e the dime to Mrs. Des Mizzi of r Op ,lcu ;as and the thimble to Mrs. y f Angele Durio. The couple then motored to Lafayette, accompa- c t nied by the bride's brother and a sister, Mr. Frank Barry and Miss t s Edith Barry, where they boarded r Q a train for New Orleans on a c f bridal tour. A long life of hap- t s piness and prosperity is the wish f z of their many relatives and ( friends. c S'Ihe jubilee exercises in com- 'I memoration of the sixteenth c t hundredth anniversary of the r proclamation of the edict of Con-1r stantine will be held at the a Sacred Heart Church on Dec. 1 5th, 6th and 7th. There will be a I beads, sermon and benediction each night at 7:30 o'clock. The t sermons will be preached by P I some of the Jesuit Fathers from g the college. On Dec. 8th, feast 1 of the Immaculate Conception t and the day the jubilee closes j there will be a solemn high mass v and a sermon by one of the Jes- t uit Fathers. On last Saturday, t the feast of St. Cecilia, the choir of the Sacred Heart Church were royally entertained at the col- I lege parlor by Rev. A. Fontan, r S. J., pastor, and Rev. J. P. I Moore, S. J., assistant pastor.I They reported having had a grand time. Mr. Lawrence Elmer of La- c fayette was here a few days re cently. a Mrs. J. M. Barry of Beaumont I come in Monday. Miss Lucille Castille of Ope lousas visited relatives here a c few days this past week. gMr. Lloyd Franques and Mr. and Mrs. L. B. Arceneau of r Church Point were in town Sun- I day. t Dr. W. B. Barry and family of Alexandria visited here this week. Mr. W. A. Barry of Lydia visited relatives here a couple of days this week. Mr. and Mrs. L. T. Castille a and Mrs. Dan Edwards and son, v Mr. Roy Edwards, of Opelousas, were here during the week. The Rosary. s Whatever else may be said of I Rowland and Clifford's new pro duction "The Rosary," which = comes to the Sandoz Opera House I Monday Dec. 15th the charge of imitation of otlher plays cannot be made. "The Rosary" vir tually breaks new gronnd in the dramatic field and should prove a veritable surprise when the i curtain rises upon it. t The play is built upon a thoroughly modern theme, viz:1 the influence of thought upon the lives and well being of the men LI an d women of our present day. That thought, intangible and evanescent as it is, is still a force, a power; a theory that has for 5 some time past engaged the serious actention of our foremost 1 psychologists, but its portrayal Supon the stage has been neglect i ed heretofore. "The Rosary" attacks the P theme boldly, it deals with the lives and fortunes of a little f group of people living in the West Chester country near New - York City. The husband is a dis - believer in all religion, his wife a Swoman of serious conviction re garding faith in the things of 1 life unseen. 1 Strong in his belief and thor . oughly human, a priest moves e through the subtle story of the V play, and when doubts come and - the lives of the man and woman are shattered,,seemingly-.beyornd human poweroi repair, t priest 2 analyzes the situation and by the power of his faith brings both 3 the people whom he loves back e to happiness. I Mingled with the darker col s ors of human tragedy is a vein of natural comedy evolved from the events which occur during the action. Dorothy Alice McClelland Just after midnight of Thurs I day, and in the first hour of Fri f day morning, Dorothy Alice Mc Cleland, the beloved daughter > of Odebert H. McClelland and his wife, born Miss Minnie Du F rio, died at the tender age of 4 months and 17 days. The Clarion and the whole community in which we live has I a most heartfelt sympathy for 3 the stricken parents. There is I no more popular young married a couple in Opelousas, and a blow to them is reflected in us all. The 1 father is a son of Mr. J. B. Mc i Clelland, and the active manager of the Opelousas Motor Car Co. -The mother is. the attractive daughter of our veteran citizen, Mr. Eraste Durio. Few bereaved - parents could have the sympathy and receive the kind words of a greater number of close relatives and sincere friends. On the evening of Friday, r Nov. 21, a number of young men 1 gathered at the home of Dr. t Theo. Chachere to celebrate the twenty-first birthday of his son, Josie. Delicious refreshments were served, and the mirth of the young people continued un til far into the evening.
