Louisiana's picturesque chief c-.::- cutive , and -- senalor-eleclr—who merged triumphant from an at- empt to'impeach him, who rec?iv- d visiting German dignitaries in laming green pajamas, who made is pretty young stenographer sec etary of state, who refuses to give p Hie governorship and • go tc Vashington because his arch enein> ould succeed him~-has a new nm- Ilion. Now he's out to make Loulsian'i tale University's football team one f 'the greatest gridiron a ions in the country. "T intend to put' Louisiana Bute n -the football map." Governor Loii'j; says. "What it takes ocd players and develop them—of ourse, In a legitimate manner—1're ot. Don't be surprised to sec L. S. L on top of the map in the next tvo or three years." Cavorts on Sidelines Before 28.008. surprised s'pecta- ors at the Tulane-L. S. U. he other day, the govcrnor-sen- tor made his debut as a. football mentor. Racing up and down the sidelines lie made himself sirt 1 combination coach, trainer, cheer eader, doctor, water boy and pre- iding genius of the occasion. Arriving at the -.field an hour nd-'a'- httUobefore .game time, the jovernor •. went at once to .the XMiisiana State dressing room, where he closeted himself witn Coach Russ Cohen and his athletes until the team came out on the ield." A reporter asked him what le had said to the players. "I tallied to them for an hour and a half," he replied. "I told hem they could lick Tulane if they weren't quitters. I toW them to get out there and fight. I talked to them in groups of three and four —the whole squad. Now you jus! watch that team of mine." It ought to be explained that lang, although an alumnus of Tu- arte, is lirad of Louisiana Slat? by virtue of his office as governor; and on tl:e day of this foctta!! game he took this connection very seriously. • "Come On, Ycu Timers!" Governor Lens; scorned the box that had been prepared for him. and paced restlessly up and dor;n the sidelines. Ke waved his arms, calling, "Come on, you Timers! Come.on. Tigers!" And v:hen Louisiana State get a first down on Tulane's six-yard line, Govgrmr Long raced down the field and stood on the edge to cheer the boys on. Tulane, as it happened, hold, recovered the tall,.and punted outj of danger. Then Louisiana Stdt? tried a forward pass which was incomplete. Governor Long ran over to where Coach Cohen sa!/ on th» bench. '•N'cxt time one ot these Tigers •!-"ies to pass and finds his receivers covered, have liim run with the ball' the way Don Zimmerman of Tulane dil against Georgia," h; shouted to (he coach. Cohen nodded, never taking his eyes of> tlie field of play. Tlie governor ran back to the sidelines . .. Tulane got the ball and hammered ineffectually at the Louisiana Stat; line. "Wonderful! Wonderful!" shouted Louisiana's governor, dancing en ll-.c sidelines. "Wonderful the way that. Tiger line is holding!" .Louisiana State got the gall. Almokary, a talenled halfback] rit the Tulane Hue for a first down. "Tlufs My Man!" "Tnats my man!" cried Long. "I brought him i n from the oil fields." Finally Tuhne got the ball and began a steady march down the ficia. The governor knelt on' Ins sidelines and pulled up grass by the handful; then he suddenly PE 5 T raUcd hls h3n -s h '3 h over head, and yelled to his team: t m ,:,° n> ^si-Fight 'cm!

The governor -ran over; Home Demonstration Agent' Reports Achievements of Past Year. slapped him on the back end cried "Son. you're playing a Louisiana: SUite back," Almoiary, madfjJsome-more substantial -gains. Again tlie governor- yelled, "Almokary! That's my boy!" • . Ministers to Injured Flayer A few moments later Almokary. was hurt. Governor Long vaged. "They've constantly slugged that boy!" he said. "They've piled on him and hit him and everything else." Almokary came out, nearly blinded in one eye. Governor Long ran up and threw his arms around him. He sent a messenger out for; some medicine, and when they came hs applied It .with his own hands to Almokary's injured optic. For a time he divided his attention between the athlete and the football gamD, darting to the sidelines to shout encouragement and then returning to Almokary to inquire about his eye. Between halves the governor went into the dressing ropm with the Louisiana State team. When play was resumed he refused to go into the box that was reserved for him on the Tulane side of the field, although it has- been the annual custom for the governor to sit in the- Tulano box during the last half &f .the game. "I've get to stay with my team!" was his reply. , after the third quar- scored one. The game finally ended with Tulaue winning, 12. to 7. Governor Long grinned . Improvement In the living -conditions of Mississippi county farm families is refiecctd in a detailed _ summary of their accomplishments I during Hie past 12 rnontr|s prepared I by Miss Cora Lee .Coleman, county | home demonstration agent.
