OimNeda Trt" & Savings Bank
Sends Out aceeks to Algiers
People Amnasting to
The Algiers Branch of the Commer
eial Trust and Barings Bank located
on Patterson and Verret Streets, was
certainly a good Santa Clause this
year to tbhe Algiers people. They
sent out their Christmas Savings
obecks on Tuesday, paying out the
great rm of $12,t99.55.
Conideurln that our people have
been called upon durinl the past year
to buy two sets of Liberty Loan
Bonds, and subscribe to Red Cross,
Community War Work Campaign,
War Saving Stamps etc.., the showing
made by the Christmas Savings ac
counts were very gratifying to the
banking Institutions.
It is predicted that the year 1919
will be a redord year for savings
banks, and especially will there be
larger amounts deposited again for
Christmas Savinags
The Christmas Savings Checks of
the Commerolal Trust and Savings
bank are beautifully lithographed with
a picture of Santa Claus which
is very attractive and inspiring to the
young boys and girls, but the really
interesting part of the check is the
printed portion which says "Will pay
One hundred twenty dollars anad
eighty oeats."

Answering an inquiry from the Re

ble, Assistant Attorney Gendral, gave
an opinion that there is no authority
for the issuance of a half-year liquor
license, because of prospective pro
hibition, until, after July 1. The in
quiry addressed to the Attorney Gen

prohibition for next July, the State

W'ednesday morning of last week.
after an appropriate program had
been rendered, the usual collection
of Thanksgiving donations took place.
Potatoes, onions, and fruits of dif
terent kinds were collected in large
amounts. Besides these, there were
edibles of every description.
These articles were sent to the
leaders of the various churches of
our district, for distribution among
those who were in need of help 4pd
cheer. Some needy families were
.,ent baskets of provisions.
The Eighth Grade boys worked very
wilingly and. under the principals di
rection, collected, arranged, and dis:
tributed the articles.
We take this method of thanking
the boys and their parents for their
generous response to the Thanksglv.
ing call and we know that they re
ceive God's daily blessings and, in
that fact, they get a just return.
The principal's office has been en
larged and renovated. The walls have
been done over in two shades of buff
and the woodwork has been stained
oak. This important section of the
school has an inviting and comfort
able appearance.
Messrs. Dewey, Thorning, and Ed
mund Hebert were very welcome
visitors to the school last week and
the teachers were very glad to know
that these splendid young men had
not forgotten their old school and
their teachers. The former came from
Norfolk and has done active work
in foreign waters in the hospital
service, and the latter is stationed
at the Naval Air Base, Pensacola,
Florida. Both of these rollicking
sailor boys have improved in every
possible way, being in excellent
physical condition and cheerful spirits.
We wish them good luck in the future.

Collection of real estate taxes, due
since July, will begin January 2, ac.
cording to the announcement made
'Monday morning by Deputy Commis
sioner Arthur .. O'Keefe.
The delay in getting out the bills
was caused by a change in the as.
sessment system. necessitating the
making of new assessessment rolls.
Personal taxes must be paid by lie
cember 14, said Mr. O'Keefe, or be
delinquent. Mr. O'Keefe appealed to
the' public to pay their personal taxes
promptly and avoid rush and con
The fact that poll taxes are being
paid slowly also was pointed out by
Mr. O'Keefe. who is making prepar
ations to meet the usual last-minute
During the past week very little
work was turned out by the Surgical
Dressings Deparrment. In fact, the
result is most discouraging, in view
-of the large allotments given us by
the New Orleans Chapter. The em
ergetey order for 20oo 81-A Pads for
French hospitals is not yet com
pleted, only 1.155 being finished to
date. This order should have been
completed by October 25th, and the
prospects are that it will be carried
over into next year. The October
and November allotments remain un
touched, and the December allot
ment is due.
From the foregoing report, It will
be seen that although the war is
over In a sense, there is still plenty
of work for the Red Cross, and It
will be just as unpatriotic to desert
the cause now as it would have been
while the war was in progress. Miss
Herbert, Capt. of Surgical Dressings,
therefore, urges all her workers to
report at 'the workroom during this
and next week. The working days
for this department have been re
duced to three, Tuesday, Wednesday
and Thursday.
'Mrs. W. J. Vau HRes, Cotamandant
a the Algiers Canteen, wishes all
those who have expressed their de
sirp to join this branch of Red Cross
work. to meet with her at the K. of
C. Hall, Priday, 6th ast, at 8 p.
', for the purpose of turning in
their applicaton blank, receiving
membership cards, emblems, etc.
Instructions will also be given in
regard to the material for the unl
forms. It is hoped that erane

Headquarters thatf then Is Just as
much need for this department as
heretofore, and that the movement of
men from eamp to camp and those
returning from oversees whi will

sary for an Indefinite period.
The Hospital Gaments and Re
fugee departments have completed
their allotments which will be de
livered to tbs New Orleam ead
quarters on Monday of nest week.
There swl remain some sweaters
to be distributeod. Knitters are
asked to come forward that our al
