At the regular monthly meeting of
the Baton Rouge Civic Associations
Wednesday at 10 a. m., in the Wo
man's Club House, a most interest
ing talk was given by Mr. Goo. WV.
Garig, commissioner of streets and
parks. Mr. Garig said at the onset
that it gave him pleasure to accept
the ladies' invitation to be present
and he commended their spirit of co
operation. He said he thought such
city laws as the commissioners and
citizens saw fit should be created to
make Baton Rouge the best city in
which to live. These laws made
should, without fail, be enforced, he
He gave descriptions of regulation

fact that lids must fit at least two

Mr. Garig was very patient in his
answers to the many questions. He
had studied his subject well and was
prepared with ready responses, and

Mrs. A. Sheppers, chairman of conm
mittee, reported that through MIr. L.
U. Babin, chairman of committee
from Police Jury on the investigation
of a probation officer, the informas
tion was obtained that this officer
(and a woman is asked for) is ap
pointed by the district judge, and sal
ary paid by the Police Jury. Thi
committee is retained.
Mrs. A. R. Albritton, chairman, re
ported for the committee on illit
eracy, that at an interview with Mr.
Harris, State superintendent of Edu
cation, he said he saw no reason for
great alarm on this subject. The
adult illiterate in Louisiana was a
contented law-abiding citizen, he
said, and that schools for their chil
dren were being provided. Louisiana
and North Carolina have the distinc
tion of having made greater educa
tional strides during the past ten
years than any of the other states
in the Union.
