The South Vitally Interested. rear
Shre
The interest of the South in hr
Democratic success this year is w.
not merely academic and senti- L.
mental. It is vital. B
The second paragraph of the
Fourteenth Amendment to the
Constitution is very clear in pro- pe
viding that when the right to vote spir
is denied by a state to its citizens youl
for any reason except participa. ahi
tion in rebellion or other crime, esti
the representation in Congress of tobi
that state shall be reduced in pro. con
portion. The Constitutional pow. tioi
er of Congress to reduce the step
southern representation in Con- the
gress proportioned to the number am
of citizens deprived of the vote is gp
Sundoubted. prc
Moreover, a census has just l
been completed and the question th;
of reapportioning representation m
in Congress is imminent. Repre. thi
sentative Seigel of New York, en
Republican Chairman of the Re. ins
apportionment Committee of the wi
House of Representatives, has o
received a number of letters ad- thi
vocating the reduction of southern
representation in Congress and in
the Electoral College and he an- to
nounces publicity that his com- H
mittee will take up seriously at C(
the coming session of Congress .
the question of cutting down the re
representation in states where e'
negroes are disfranchised. He
does not propose cutting down o:
Massaohusette' representation al- p
though it has a very restricted "
electorate. The Republican pa .
pers all over the country are agi- E
tating the question and showing
that in some northern districts a
Congressman represents many
times as many vters as some
The question hba been accentuat
ed by the doubling of the num
ber of voters by woman suffrage.
This strikes at the very heart of
the South's share in the govern.
ment of the United States. The
southern people, like Massachus
etts, understand that a large
class of illiterate citizens is a
great governmental burden, more
of a governmental burden than
an equal number of intelligent
voters, and that representation in
Congress based on their numbers
isa just apportionment. But the
Fourteenth Amendment puts pow.
er in the hands of Congress which
may be abused. The South's in
terest in this election is vital and
Southern Demoorats should do
all they can for Democratic sue
cess. The - best way they can
help is to subsorilie liberally to
the Demooratio Campaign fund.
Every Democrat ought to bear
this in mind when asked to con
tribute to the Demooratic fund.
Remember the Lodge Force Bill,
and think of the tremendous in.
, fluence Lodge will have with the

BOYS AND GIRLS WILL
he COMPETE AT BIG FAIR
With approximately $3,000 in cash
premiums to be awarded and a strong
)te spirit of rivalry existing among the
8s youthful farmers of Louisiana, the ex
hibits by the Boys' and Girls' Clubs
are going to be among the most inter
ne, eating features at the State Fair, Oc
I Of tober 28 to November 7, inclusive. The
ro. competition this year is expected to
be the liveliest ever noted in connec
DW tion with the State Fair, owing to the
the steady extension of the club work and
.- the natural rivalry that has developed
iber among different clubs and sections.
The exhibits of the juveniles will
o is open the eyes of visitors to wonderful
progress the boys and girls are mak
justing in farming activities by using the
improved methods that are taught
ion them. In numerous cases the club
tion members show much better results
than do their elders, owing to the
failure of the latter to break away
rk, entirely from the old methods of plant
Re- ing, cultivating, etc. That this is true,
the will be demonstrated in some of the
contests at the Fair in which boys'
has and girls' entries will compete against
ad- those of adults.

d will be numcrou1s exhibits by the Corn
Clubs, Pig Clubs, Poultry Clubs, Cot
