Gene Lane returned the latter part of the week from an extended eastern and southern trip, during which time he visited many of the principal mid dle eastern cities, in addition to spending a week taking in the sights of the famous Mardi Gras festival in New Orleans. He describes this great southern exhibition as one of the most interesting sights he ever witnessed. New Orleans is one of the oldest of American cities and is rich in historical lore. The entire South, Gene says, is waking up, in dustrially speaking, and not Jiern and eastern capital is being poured into the states south of the Mason and Dixon line by the millions. Oppor tunities for money making are ex cellent, but the Lewistown man is of the opinion that even at that they do not compare with those offered by Montana. Wherever he went lie heard kind words for Montana and especially the Judith Basin, which ap pears to be the best advertised section of country west of the Mississippi. Gene feels greatly improved in health as a result of the trip, but says that he is glad to get home. He left Johnny Ritch wandering around un der the magnolias and pines of the Southland and, apparently, thoroughly en ra'pport with the balmy climate and languid customs of that country.
