WHAT WOMEN CAN ACCOMPLISH. I
Within two months from the first mention of the necessity of
securing a proper building for the several societies composing the
Association of Clubs, that organization has not only secured a hand
some byilding on a handsome Boulevard but has made a substan
tial payinent on the same.
Now, with no wish to make invidious distinctions, the Enter- i
prise cannot refrain from giving our ladies credit in a matter in
which men folks have totally failed. Since childhood we have t
been hearing our men folks discuss the economy and convenience t
of owning their own lodge buildings and at the same time aiding in a
the upbuilding of the city, but so far as carrying their ideas into t
effect we fail to see that as much as a single brick or piece of lum- P
ber has yete been purchased for such purposes. Perhaps the ex
ample set by the women of the Association of City Clubs may stim- a
ulate the membership of the lodges and cause greater effort. Our n
women have proven as truth what General Grant is credited with i
having said, "the way to do a thing, is to do it."
The educational institutions of our city have drawn hither a
very large percentage of young people and it should be the aim of v
all good citizens to surround the youth by strictest moral influence, 1
and to this end the Woman's Enterprise will bend its best efforts.
Should youthful minds yield to baneful influences through the
medium of the press, no blame shall ever attach to the Woman's c
As we stated above, those who wish to be furnished such vile v
and filthy reading as appears almost daily in public print they must "
seek other sources than our columns.r
If among the citizenship of Baton Rouge there be those who p,
seeknews or heading of a sensational or salacious character they g
must seek elsewhere than in the columns of the Woman's Enter- U
prise to gratify their preverted desires. There will be no filthy t<
Silliman disgusting details, nor will there be Kaber murder or like R
nauseating events recorded. The Woman's Enterprise will never ul
assist in spreading such vile, filthy news fit only for the columns of tl
journals catering to the lower elements of society. A
Communications will be welcome to the columns of Woman's
Enterprise, provided they are free of spiteful personalities or other hi
offensive subjects. By no means will we permit the paper to be- a
come a vehicle for the dissemination of personal grievances. In
writing, all those, except contributions authorized by the Associa- in
tion of Clubs, will be required to furnish their names as anonymoust
letters will receive no attention but find sepulchre in the waste a
If the good people of Baton Rouge consume all the watermel- wi
ons brought to town their tastes in that direction must surely be Ja
gratified. Daily, wagon load after wagon load are to be seen on thew
btder and aU wem to find ready sale. Our polored friends pre
fer the juicy watermelon to all fruits or vegetables and the quanti
ty they consume is almost beyond computation.
As on advertising medium the Woman's Enterprise is unsur
passed, with its two thousand edition circulated by the Association
of the 6'ity Clubs it will reach every home in this city and many
in the country wards. It will x'ot be a free circulation by any la
means but that every copy will be purchased goes without saying. It
The ladies will see to that.
Now as it is well understood that the women folks do seventy- n
five percent or more of family purchasing, the advantage of ad- P'
vertising in awoman's journal can readily be seen. At all events
the wide-awake merchants who advertise in this issue seem to d
realize the fact that a woman's publication is a place from which P
to get results. a

The East Baton Rouge League of

B Constitutional Convention appeared
before the women and gave their

Dr. R. L. Tullis also gave several very
instructive lectures on the ballot.
In 1921, the League petitioned the
police jury to have a greater number of
) polling places, on account of the con
r gestion caused by the increase in pop
_ ulation. This was granted.
In May the Governor was petitioned
to appoint two women on the School
* Board because of the increase in pop
r ulation in the First and Third Ward;
Sthis was also granted. Mrs. Alvin K.
Albritton and Mrs. N. B. Brown are
the first women to sit on the School
Board in this parish.
The League was instrumental in
Shaving two ordinances written into the
new constitution "Mother's Pension,"

SODALITY OF THE CHILDREN OF
By CADIE AMISS. *
This society is .composed of young
ladies from fifteen years of age up.
* Its object is two fold:
1st. The spiritual welfare of its
members. The fostering of a spirit
of filial love and devotion for the
- Mother of God, and the practice of
piety among those who compose the
3 2nd. The second aim of the So
) dality is the spirit of charity for the
z poor and suffering, visiting the sick
and consoling the dying.
The members take a special inter
- est in donating and working for the
orphans. The Sodality has just be
gun a Building Fund for these little
ones and the members are anxious to
have as many join this fund as they
can get to donate to this good work.
The members hold monthly meet
ings at which important business
transactions take place and the min

REPORTER GETS IT.
There is a strosg appeal in Mar
shall Neilan's mile-a-minute melo
drama of newspaper life, "Go and Get
It" for overseas men who have or are
contemplating returning to civil life
in the adventures of the hero Kirk
Connelly. During the war Connelly's
task-much against his will-was
that of cook. But he found time be
tween meals to do some real hero
stuff and get wounded. On his re
turn to private life Connelly gets a
job on the editorial staff of a big daily
newspaper in the hope of becoming a
reporter. But to his great disgust
the managing editor sets him to writ
ing cooking recipes. But fortunately
for the young veteran this condition
does not last long. He is eventually
assigned to a story and it leads to one
of the most amnzing assignments a
reporter has ever had fall to his lot.
And the ex-cook book editor acquits
himself in a most creditable manner
and "gets the story" and a "scoop."
But you will have to see thip picture
at the Elks Saturday and Sunday in
order to appreciate how truly big it
is. It is a First National Attraction
and is considered by them as one of
their best releases.
