All interested in the better- hib ment of town and country inter- cee eats are asked to be present at in this meeting. wel - - - -Jot Teachers Protest Against Sal- tri set ary Cut. tor Pr. Prior to the action of the school P board last week in making a 15 to per cent cut on all teachers sal- in aries thruout the parish outside the City of Bogaluaa, whose ad ditional funds have already been Ei raised by a special tax, Superin tendent Stringtield had called an the teachers to meet on Satur- an day to discuss the best compromt- in ise measure for meeting the bli shortage in school funds. In the meantime the Parish Board had held an extra session, B and finding the state funds which had been depended upon could not be obtained, and realizing no chance to vote an extra tax and Qi with the bank's reluctance to in Lt crease their present loans, they dE in desperation abruption order- ul ed the 15 per cent cut in salary. pi As might be naturally expect- SI ed, a strong protest went up N from the teachers who had not di been given a full insight into the unexpected and unavoidable de- °r pression in money matters, and tt with their plans set out tor d w full term based on their original pi salary the action appeared in a tc one-sided light and altogeter to T the disadvantage of the teachers. h The meeting, as called, was W held in the court house saturday tl and after explanation and b thorough discussion pro and con, a compromise measure was drawn up to be presented to the ei board this week and all work was d resumed Monday as usual. 8 Patrons are divided upon the 8 issue, some mauintaining tat pre- c sent salaries should be continu- 0 ed-till funds are exhausted when schools should be closed whether e or not the year's required work ' is completed for grade promotion. The other view is that the r great reductions in living ex penses makes the proposed sal aries go as far as previous wages did at time of contract. We have not been appraised of the terms of the teacher's propo sed compromise, but a rational consideration of the question by all parties will show it to be a delicate matter and hard to be settled without an injustice to teachers or school. With this in mind the public might serve best by refraining from any radical discussion from either standpoint, leaving the final adjustment to teachers and board who, after all are the ones reasonably expected to have the interest o1 the schools most deep ly at heart, Card of Thanks. To those wbo soisWeiped to the relief of my wife thru htih late illness and death and to tjrpue who so thouabtfully shouldered my extra financial burden I am deeply grateful and take this means of expressing to one the sincere gratitude and apprecia tion and myself and family. May God's bleisings attend .you all, C, T. Corkern, Grent Results froim First Dry Year. All those interested in the ef- Wm. feet of one year of National Pro- died hibition in the United States would do well to read the several tod articles on the enforcement of the tomb law and its effect in the City of TI New Orleans as printed in Sun- symS day's Times Picayune of January this 30th. ThI Picayune sums the dea matter up by its headlines, 'Con- deti sensus of Upinion that new law frien has been effective in building ferer sturdier citizenship and a thriftier bad < city." Then its article continues by saying, "Prohibition means Serll more imoney-more money for the poor, more money for the business man, more money for the work man, wore money in the banks, Mi more money for the home and ley, family-so down with Bacchus cally and Harleycorni, there is more awa money without them." And then a quoting Judge Anrdrew Wilson of bugg ' the Juvenile Court it sums up the whei I matter in that '"prohibition has ed a been a Godcend." BAn' n It seems to most people who hurt 1 have thought about the matter that the great need of our state new is an enforcement state law moll so as that the State Courts sigh clan aid the FEderal Courts in Ban r those Parishes and Districts that her had open ski i il:. prior to Federal ' Prohibition. It a to be hoped that our Legislaiure will enact s such a law at the earliest time o0 possible. that ie It is gratifying to note however, tha ie that in all sections of the Sta: tia a. that were dry before National Pr, Wit kee ?- hibition baeome effective can pro. ex r- ceed now to render valuable aid exo at in enforcing the law. Just last ac week we noticed where Judgi ace John R. Land, of the State Die- abw 1I trict Court in Parish of Caddo, lr sentenced two blind tiger opera- io tors to serve 12 months in Parish `t ol Prison and to pay a flue of $500 f 15and in default of payment of filue al to serve an additional 12 munthii de in jail. Thats the sort of mcdi. 6 cine should be dealt out to those quid d who are trying to annull the pne* n Eighteenth Amendment. We hope n- our Grand Jury of this Parish and our Judge, District Attorney ir- and Sheriff will get in behind thi ( ;uatter and mike it hot for the ab( ie blind tiger boot legger.
