The joint meeting of the Teachers Association of Lincoln and Union Parish on Thanksgiving was a great success. Many teachers from both parishes were present including the Superintendant of each parish.

Prof. Keeny was present and spoke in the afternoon. Prof Keeny is a great favorite with the teachers of the state, always having something good for them.

The people of D’Arbonne are interested in education and know how to make a teacher feel at home. Dinner was served at the School house and we are sure that no one went away hungry. Prof. Ray and his wife who teach at D’Arbonne left nothing undone that they could do for the comfort of the teachers. The good work they are doing is being felt by the people.

We are all glad we went to D’Arbonne. The hospitality of the good people will long be remembered. May their efforts in education be crowned with success.

J. B. Hix
