Several Schohols Qualified for llgh Rehools and Several Others leagy to Do So. Lake Charles, La. April, 20,~-On ted May 21 the parish schools in general, few will close after one of the most suC ev- cessful sessions ever held, both from .al the standpoint of attendance and from of interest taken and work accomplished. o-. Many new schools were opened and a ay great number of school buildings erected. There are now four high of schools in the parish, outside of the ler city, and three more schools will ng qualify next year, making a total for ce the parish, of eight high schools. it. Figures given by the parish assessor c- in 1907 placed the number of children 0. of educable age throughout the parish , at 11,582. Figures for the year end at ing December, 1908, place the number of children actually attending ,school, of at 11,377. Of these 9,994 were white d. and 1,383 were colored. Of the num b- her also the city schools claimed 2,021, as of whom 1,510 were white and 511 col es ored. Figuring that there is one be child in the city schools for every eight people in the town, and as the s, average for the parish is lower than nt that, the total number enrolled, 11, 377, would represent a population of )y 90,000 people in the parish at the te present time. r, For the year ending December 1908, iy there were 168 schools in the parish and 210 teachers. At present, there d. are about 170 schools and 220 teachers. u. Among the schools opened were the of following: At Longville with two is teachers, as the result of the opening ,t- of the big Long-Bell mill there. At x. Fulton, with two teachers and at J n- Ward and Elizabeth following the r- completion of the Colorado Southern, ll and at many more places. The new g. manufacturing plants and railroads are responsible for the large increase in the enrollment. Calcasieu parish t is second to none in the number and efficiency of her schools, but to stop 11 is to retrogress, and the schools are )f steadily progressing, without a stop, -, -Enterprise.
