We read somewhere that in the
entire world there are 946 schools for
the deaf, 549 of which are in Europe.
North America has 223 schools. South
America 23, Africa 10. Asia 131. and
Australia 12. For the 200,000 deaf of
India, there are only three schools

We are happy for the folks at the
Ohio School for the Deaf. They are
going to get a whole brand new school

print of the architect's drawings of the
new buildings, and they are out of

construction has started.
Construction of a new school for the
deaf in Southern California, at Riverside, has also been started.
This school is proud to report that

The inspector was extremely annoyed by the amount of noise coming
from the adjoining room while he made
his usual rounds of the school. Unable
to stand it any longer, he opened the
door. Seeing one boy taller than the

grabbed him by the collar, dragged
him to another room and stood him in

Monday, December llth, was a
proud, happy and exciting day for the
Girl Scouts. It was the day they were
to receive their pins at an investiture
ceremony. Miss Brown and Miss Goff
came to present the pins after each
girl gave her Scout Promise. Miss
Brown and Miss Goff are from the
Baton Rouge Girl Scout Council.
The ceremony took place on the
stage of our gym with all the pupils
and faculty present. The girls looked
so nice; all wore white blouses with
yellow ties. A few days later Mr. Huff
received .$(>2.0() from the business women in town to buy green material
so the girls can have scout skirts. They
had heard how nice the girls looked
and wanted them to have skirts alike.

HERE certainly is no joy no enthusiasm no pleasure, in fact, no
nothing in writing about a basketball
team that has not as yet won a single
victory on the basketball court. Such
is the dilemma we find ourselves in
at present, when the Editor of the
Pelican yells for "copy." How different
the task would be had we at least a
couple of games to chronicle in which
our boys won.
Unfortunately practically all of the
boys who came out for basketball have
had no previous experience and it is
absolutely necessary to teach them the
techniques of passing, shooting, dribbling, pivoting, etc. This naturally takes
time and consequently teamwork does
not function as smoothly as it should.
We are still in the embryo stage of the
game and as mentioned in previous
issues of the Pelican, it will probably
be at least a couple of years before
the team can hope to make a creditable showing. We are far from discouraged, but naturally, like everybody
else, we would like to be able to report
a few victories, at least.
To date, the team has lost four
straight games, all by rather lop-sided
scores. However, we note that in every
game we have been able to narrow
the margin of victory to fewer points.
This in itself is encouraging and we
are going to keep on trying and hope
to be able, before the season closes,
to chalk up maybe one victory, notwithstanding the chances for so doing
appear almost impossible.
We know this report will not go
well with the alumni, nor the friends
of the school, but it is harder on the

My father planted seven little pine
trees in our yard. When these little
