PLAN TO HAVE
ELKS LODGE I
Already Many B. P. O. E. ar
Boys Here And Much Good
Timber For Elks to
OULO HAVE A FiNE 'HOME
There has been considerable dis
cussion towards getting an Elks wi
lodge for Bogalusa ani it is expected at
that within the next few weeks some El
defiinte action will be taken. There M
are some twelve or fifteen B P 0 E
members in Bogalusa at present and
their is plenty of good timber to get'
*an excellent lodge. It is impossible I
to get a charter for an Elks lodge in
a city less than 10,000 population
and in as much as Bogalusa has
excedded that number by several
hundred the lodge can now be estab
lished. The Elks are known the
country over for their social features
and when the lodge is organied they
will have an Elks home, that will be gi
a credit to the city. ct
