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
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

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. Those
present were: Eugene Chachere,
Harold Lastrapes, John Brown,
Irl White, Willie Major, Law
rence Andrepont. Ix Fruge,
Robert Brower, O'Connor and
Sidney Roos.
Mr. and Mrs. A. P. Trewhitt,
of Chattanooga, Tenn., arrived
- in Opelousas a few days since
and will reside here in the future.
t Mrs. Trewhitt will be remember
