new-made voters whom Senator

Judging by the reports reaching the I1
management, an unusually large num- *
ber of parishes will be represented in
the Parish Pair contest at the 1920 a
State Fair of Louisiana. It is hoped it
that every parish will send an exhibit It
to compete for the generous premiums I
that have been offered and to show I
the State Fair visitors what is being
done in agricultural development in its
section. I
The Parish Fair exhibits will be
shown in the mammoth Agricultural
Building, the largest structure on the
grounds, which is 250x160 feet. Uni*
spitals form space for booths, as heretofore,

From the Parish Fair exhibits the
