In an editorial last Saturday, the Clarion made a strong a geaI to the "Civic pride" of the town in the cause of pg.igres-our progress, the forward march of Opelou Nlo man, rich or poor, can live ii two cities at the same, ~.ne. Only one town can be "his own." That town then is 'his world" and that world will be always what he: makes it. Did you ever read that splendid book by Ed ward Hale: "The Man Without a Country." Every page is an inspiration to you, to do something to make "your world," your town a little better at the setting of every j Id. " Great cities have not been built by selfish men. We would have no glorious United States today if everybody had been Tories in those days which tried men's souls, ..; before the winning of independence. .Some of our reprsentative citizens will say we-cannot 'd-this and -we cannot do that, we aemnot take a lesson from Lake Charles, or that we cannot take a lesson from Lafayette, because of this and that. There is one thing sure and that is that there is no PROGRESS where there are pessimists of this nature, and there would not have been railroads, steamships, telephones, electric lights, an ' mobiles and thousands of the more modern inventions, all had waited for "George' to do it. The citizen who is too stingy to spend a cent or sose of his energies for his community's progress is as despic ale as the slacker who refuses to fight for his country -s the time of need. We refuse to believe that Opelousas cannot do what' Lafayette or Lake Charles is doing-we annot think, that Opelousas is satisfied to remain in a mnt for ever. Is 'there any one in our community whose rast does not pulse with civic pride? * ' f such there breathe, go, mark him well For him no minstrel raptures swell; S"High though his titles, proud his name Smundless his wealth as wish can claim Despite these titles, power and pelf The wretch, concentered all in self. i" ing, shall forfeit fair renown , And" doubtly dying shall go down 'To the vile dust from whence he sprang S~i rnwept, Unhonord and Unsung.'

CHARLES COLLEGE TEAM PLAYS IA, STATE NORMAL Cran Cd otea, IA., Nov. 16.-In a 'bitterly contheted struggle, marked ,by flashes of individual brilliancy, Sty' charles College of Ohtnd Cteauea'nd Louisiana state Normal 'fought sixty minutes of play without a score, at Natchitoches on Armistice 7a)y. 'Normal won the toss and elected to receive. Crowley kicked off for St. Charles into the face of a light _wilnu, and Ktlpen for Normal was downed on his thirty-yard mark. After a series of line plunges. Normal punt .ed to Harrington at St. Ctharles' thirty yard mark. Smith' and Brose sari made first down for the Slants on two successive plunges, and on the, very next gpay Crowley dashed around right end for fifty-five yards, placing the ball on Notmal's four yard line. A touchdown seemed inevitable, but the bull dog tenacity, which pervaded Normals play throughout the game, 1was very much in evidence at this Scrdtical moment. As a result of this dogged determination, the teachers took possession of the ball a scant six inches froms her owBn oal line. on the_ it slif Kilegýa Akcke pt of aer. ,FPrsm this poii n ithr team thretened serioiusly to bon e althougih lt in he third priod Noral via "the brwatd 'pine route placed 'the ball on St. Charles' ten yard line, where the Collegians held for downs, and Crowley kicked outa of danger. - The panting of pavley aaaes al the feature of the game.

No ptint si one doCasion the St. Charles fullback stood on his ows titeeaf yard line and kicked out of, bound on Normal's three yard line, a distance of eighty two yards. Harrington's ability to and Broussard's vicious line plunging advance the bill, together with Saith kept the Up Staters continually 'on the defense.
