S. J. Durand to be Principal
at Brealu Bridge
We have just been informed
that Supt. Chavez has appointed t
Mr. Sidney .1. Durand as Princi- I
pal and Agriculturist for the 1
Breaux Bridge High School, to
succeed Mr. F. T. Guilbeau who
is now at the University. Mr.
Durand is now farm demonstrator
for the Parish of Evangeline, and
he will assume the duties of his
position on Nov. 1. Mr. Durand
has made good in every position
that he has held, and we believe
that the school officials have made
a good selection.

TO BE TRAINED
Nation-wide Organization for
Preliminary Drill Launohed by
National Security League
Under Sanotioen of Ben
Under the anction eof Provost Mar
shal General Crowder, the National Se
curity League has undertaken the aor
ganlsation throughout the country of a
systematic preliminary course of train
lng for the young mea in the draft, so
that when they are called they will
know something of their dutles and
how to take care of themselves.
The League has drawn up a compre
hensive plan. which will be put in oper
ation in every state in the Union under
the direction of a "Committee on Pre
liminary Training and Instruction of
Men Registered for Draft," of which
Surgeon-G4meral Charles p. Stokes, U.
8. N., retled, is chairman.
Provost Marshal General Crowder,
to whom the Security League submit
ted the idea before acting, has ap
proved it in a letter to Col. Charles E.
Lydecker, President of the League, in
which he says:
"Your proposal gives me great sati
faction. Your League can render val
uable assistance in this manner."
The Security League's plan will be
made effective through the 281 branch
es of the League, scattered in all parts
of the country, and subcommittees of
8urgeon-General Stokes's committee
eo-operating with the Lecal Draf
Beards in all the states It provides
for the organization into instruction
classes et the men seon to be called,
to be selected by the Draft Boards, the
actual training to be conducted by re
tired or disabled army officers, whose
efforts to prepare the younag men toe
service will be supplemented by local
clergymel and physlidans.
Gen. J. Franklin Bell, commandant
at Camp Uptea, is an enthusiastic sup.
porter of the plan and has promised
the Security League co-operation in
obtaining instructors for the classes in
New York City and vicinity.
"Clean, Sober Seldiers."
"fPe object of our endeavor will be
to make the young men understand
why they are called for service to their
country, what Is to be expected of
them and why they should be loyal,
clean, sober and intelligent soldiers,"
says Surgeon-General Stokes. Outlin
ing the operation of the plan, he cm
"There are three main working
"(1) Each Local Draft Board,
through its Chairman, will select a
Captain, who will proepure the assen
bly of the registrants and obtain from
a local military or naval post, State
Guard or Home Defense Unit or from
retired or disabled veterans of the
present war an adequate training of

local clergyman to give Information,
instruction and advice to the young

"(i) A local physician will alsoe i
struct the young men in matters ofI
health, hyg~lee knsd phycal well-belng i
in orde that when they go to camp
they shall present tbhemselves with a
eosciousness of knowledge wbhich will
add to their strength and aumtulneas. i
"At present the vast majorit of or I
youag men are called to the colors a
tralned. It would greatly facilitate
their being turned Into rsoldiers and
save the government time and money i
if when they are called they are pro
vided with some knowledge of military
trainnlag and a sense of discipline and
"The position of local Captain, who
will supervise the work, offers one of
the finest opportunlties for patriotic
service for men of standing In the com

"Under the guidance oef such a man,
aided by an influential local clergyman
and physician, the drafted men will go
to their cantonments In eflclent, or
gapnlzed bodies rather than as a disor
ganised rabble and with a spirit of
self-rellance and comradeship, All the
stramngeness of the new Ilfe will have
been eliminated, and, since the mae
will have been taught what lies before
them, they will face duty with the con
fdence of familiarity.
"The military instruction will com
prise only the simplest evolutions, with
particular emphasis upon military cour
tesy-whener, where, how and whom to
salute. A general superviaon of this
phase of the training for uniformity 1

utilized for the actual drilling. Drills
two or three times a week of an hour's
duration will be preferable to Ionager
periods at less frequent intervals.

"Competitive drills will be arranged
