Gordon Anderson & Family 7th Ward Marshal First Southeast Louisiana journal now available , THE PONCHATOULA TIMES DECEMBER 22, 1983 SEC. B By RICK SETTOON The first journal of life, history and culture in southeast Louisiana is now available to area residents who should find the articles of great local interest. The first volume of "Regional Dimensions," a journal to be pub- lished annually by the Regional Research Program at SLU, is a collection of four papers written by SLU faculty members in the College of Humanities which examines different aspects of life and culture in southeast Louisiana. The paperback edition costs $5 and can be purchased at the Center for Regional Studies at Southeastern in Room 219 of the Humanities Build- ing. It can also be obtained by writing to the Center for Regional Studies, University Station, SLU, Box 730, Hammond, Louisiana 70402. "In the humanities field, there has never been much scholarly research carried out and published on south- east Louisiana," said Dr. Joy Jack- son, director of the SLU Center for Regional Studies which heads up the research program. "We now have a publication which will both encour- age such research and serve as a valuable resource." Each May university humanities scholars are selected from a group of applicants and then offered release time from one class for one semester to write a paper dealing with south- east Louisiana. The faculty members then present their papers to the public in a symposium during the month of September. Next year, two separate symposiums will be held. Their work is then published in "Regional Dimensions." which is released in October. The articles appearing in the first issue of the journal/' their authors and academic departments are "Labo= in the Florida Parishes Lum- ber Industry 1900-1920," Billy H. Wyche, history; "Filmmaking in Louisiana During the Silent Period: 'The Lone Wolf,' " William Parrill, English; "A Statistical Overview of the Florida Parishes," Louis H. Levy and George M. Hess, and "The Significance of Ethnicitv in 'Hungar- fan Settlement'," Maryjo C. Lock- wood, all three faculty members from the sociology, social welfare and criminal justice department. "The articles provide an overall view of the Florida Parishes along with detailed information on specific groups such as those in labor unions and those of Hungarian descent," Jackson said. "Also, many people are probably not aware that silent movies were made in New Orleans at the turn of the century, a fact brought to light by Dr. Parrill's research ," Each year, the "fellows," or those writing the papers, serve as a panel to select the scholars and works to be included in the following year's edition. Next year, the SLU authors and their subjects to be published include C. Howard Nichols, history, art deco buildings on the Southeastern campus; Barbara Walker, visual arts, art projects of the Work Project Administration during the 1930s; Harry Becnel, social welfare, wed- ding customs of Italian Americans; Carlo DiMaio, foreign languages, backgrounds of Italians in America; and Michael Fanning, English, a biographical study of Lucille Rutland, a Covington native who became a prominent New Orleans writer during the 1920s.

Farmer has issued a warning to any potential violators of the hunting laws. With the season now open on most types of game and holidays rapidly ap- proaching, District Attorney Marion Farmer has issued a statement con- cerning enforcement of the hunting laws in Washington and St. Tam- many Parishes. "The number of hunting violations such as hunting after dark, killing over the limit, etc. seem to increase significantly during the holiday season since more indi- viduals have time off from their jobs and sometimes spend that time hunt- ing. While we wish for everyone to enjoy various hunting seasons and the chance to spend some time in the outdoors, we feel strongly that all the hunting laws and regulations should be strictly obeyed, and we our Wildlife Agents in their enforcement of these laws. Many of the game laws now stiff fines and/or jail Farmer said. "We all want to be J to enjoy hunting, but at the time preserve our wildlife for our children and You can rest assured our Louisiana Wildlife & Fish Agents strictly enforce the can state with no fear of tion that my office vigorously cures each and every case brought to us. If anyone has knowledge violations of the law I urge contact an agent, our office or the "Turn In A Poacher" nul which is toll flee, 1- "lhe'11" future of our state depends on getting more jobs for our people and n bringing new industry here. The State Departments of Labor and Education and private industry are working together to do just that and one result of this collaboration is 'Opportuni- ties: Working In Louisiana This new television information program was developed to help semi-skilled, underemployed and unemployed workers. The program also has a counseling service offered through a toll-free number and the IV series is being shown on al! Public Broad- casting stations in the state and to all high schools on Instructional IV. The program's primary aim is to help people find jobs, or to find better jobs, and companies like Louisiana Power & Light, which is helping to underwrite this program, is a prime example of how business and government can work together to improve our econ- omy and our way of life here in Louisiana"  LOUISIANA POWER & LIGHT MIDDLE SOUTH UTILITIES SYSTEM WORKING FOR A SECURE ENERGY FUTURE
