The-Winn Lumber Company
Will be another factor in the scheme "
to boost our progress. This company,
which now operates a plianing mill
here, will put in a 50,000 foot saw
mill. as soon as the details are
arranged. The pay roll of this con
cern-has been an appreciated factor
jn our system of economics for years
and the increased output will give
the town a greatly enlarged payroll
to help along. Mr. T. R. Van Cleave I
is president, Edwin Winlock, vice
president, and Allen Whitley occupies
the office of this concern. ;
- The Dalton-Clark Stave Co..
This was the first industry that
came t& our town, and, although fire .
destroyed it once and the general
ofices of the company were removed
to Alexandria, it is still a valuable
s asset to the general good of the town
Si'nd its pay roll is looked upon as
a stand, by to. our merchants. Mr.
9 Morgan and Mr. Fietcher are the
n presiding geniuses of the plant.
" The Stone Quarry
. Is also:one of the industries that help
11 to make our town prosperous. A
,. large number of men are on the pay
is roll and it is almost impossible to
ie keep uD with .the orders. They do
t, not run'a: commissary and the mer
. chants have the- benefit of their trade.
In summing up the, industries that

The Initial Basket Ball Game with Louisiana College
was pulled off and our Scalps hang on the Belt
of the College Boys, but the High School Boys
are Not Discouraged.
The Winnfield High School "Babes" of
made their debut on the basket ball int
field lMonday by going down before dec
the Pineville, Pirates. The Pirates i
can hang the scalps of the "Babes" wo'
on their totem pole and hold "ex- vill
ercise" over the victory. 'Though but
Senator Oglesby was chosen umpire, the
the genial senator was not at all as an:
well up on the rules as he is on ha
politics, and left the decisions to the
referee, who, by his rulings, showed Pil
clearly that he knew he was alone wi
in power. Rt
Mr. Cottingham of Louisiana Col- pr
lege acted as referee, and, were he to to
attempt to referee in a league game
the way he. did here, he would be c(
ruled out before the first half ended. p]
HIis misinterpretation of the rules
made an easy victory for Pineville.
Many times he called fouls on Winn- tl
field for things he paid no attention h
to: with Pineville. For instance;
twice, one of our men was pushed e
over the line by one of the pirates,
and instead of calling a foul said.it
was "referee's ball", and a few
minutes later one of our men, running
after the ball, slid into a 'pirate,
pushing him over the line and a foul
wvas immediately called. During the
first half he called but three fouls on
Pineville, when they had mde. 12
clean fouls, and one foul in the second
half when they made five.
There is 'o doubt that Pineville
completely outclassed us; for they
certainly .played the game, but if
their, previousi record is based on .the
same referee's decisions, no .wonder
they made such high lscores before.
S:Clean sport is admired everywhere
. but when an official takes advaltage
of his position, the game loses its
Ll interest, and for this reason Winnfield ,
e declined to finish the second half.
s It is not contended that Winnfield
" would have won the game, for Pine-.
V- ville outclassed us .in every respect,
h but when a referee attempts to run
e, the score to the highest point by
LB any means it is high time to call a
,n halt.
le In the game between Ruston and
3d Pineville, Tuesday, the game ended
ae with a score of 39 to 23, in favor of
Ruston. During this game it was
al- proved that we were right in regard. I
to to three men on the ball.
ne In our future games we will have a
be competent referee as well as fair
3d. playing.
les At our school we have students of
Lie. both sexes who, having seen that: !
they are not the centre of popularity,
ion have taken to knocking and tryingto
ce; run down basket ball especially, and
ted everything else generally. 'These:,
tes, "measly muck rakers", are' found
d it everywhere;and are the "undesirable
few citizens" of a school. Studentsl take
itng heed and see if you are one of these;
ate, some of you are.
