August 8, 1974 - A NEW LIBRARY COURIER SERVICE began this week under a pilot program which has been dubbed the “Bayou Land Pilot Library System.” Monday morning, the courier service began the first of its twice-weekly rounds in Ville Platte from the central office in Lafayette. The Bayou Land system operates through a 10 parish area. Del Tanner is the official “courier,” and accompanying him on the first run this week was Mrs. Malva H. Huson, director of the Bayou Land system. Present in front of the Evangeline Parish Library for the first arrival Monday morning were, from left, Tanner, Police Jury President Earl John Soileau, Mrs. Nettie Perrodin of the library staff, Mrs. Huson, Mrs. Aimee Guillory, Librarian Mike Janowski, and Miss Rita Monier of the local library.
Malefactors in Evangeline Parish may now be treated to a dose of tear gas- if conditions and circumstances make this treatment necessary.
