Holiest Day of Jewish Calendar to Be Fittingly Observed Here. Divine services in honor of Yom Kippur, Day of Atonement, will be held at the Jewish synagogue in this city tomorrow evening a 6:30 o'clock and next Monday morning at 10 o'clock,. and memorial services at 4 o'clock in the afternoon. The services will be conducted by Raphael Singer, Walter Lemann and Solomon Klotz. The choir will be assisted by Pierre Blanchard. The following interesting explan ation of Yom Kippur, prepared by the Jewish Holidays Press Notice Bu reau, was furnished The Chief by Raphael Singer: "Sunday evening, October 1, inaug urates with great solemnity the Day of Atonement, or Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the synagogue. On that evening and again on Monday, rom morning till eventide, the Jew sh people will foregather for worship in their several synagogues in all parts of the world. Those removed from their families will endeavor to be among the family circle on this solemn occasion. Soldiers and sailors of Jewish faith are granted furloughs in order to observe appropriately this holiday. Wherever the Jewish people happen to be, whether few or many, they will cease from worldly concerns and give themselves wholly to thougts of repentance. "More than any other holiday of the Synagogue, Yom Kippur revives the confidence of the Jew in the ul timate triumph of God's love and justice. However sadly he has fared, despite misfortune and untold afflic tion, he repairs to his synagogue on the Day of Atonement hopeful of Gods' way and trusting that in the later days none of earth's children shall hurt nor destroy in all His moun tain for the earth shall be full of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. "The outward form of observance practiced by the Jewish people on this day is abstention from food and drink. The intent of this ceremony is to afflict the soul, in order that the worshipper be better disciplined to exercise self-control and direct his actions for the upbuilding and bet terment of humanity. "The Day of Atonement can be traced back to ancient days in the long career of the Jewish people it has undergone many transformations. "When it is first noted in the Mo saic Code it is a day when the high priest in the Temple expiated the sins of the people. The mass of the people were to observe the day from evening to evening as a Sabbath, and a fast day to obtain pardon for their sins. In Leviticus 15:2-34 the elabo rate priestly ritual of "Making atone ment for the holy place and because of the uncleannesses of the children of Israel and because of their trans grssionev na e~ uei. seng pmst was the cen tral figure of the ritual. He sought forgiveness for his own sins and those of his household and then for all the people. A very primitive rite which was revived for use on the Day of Atonement of this very ancient pe riod was the selection of two goats, one of which was to be sent to Azazel, the demon of the wilderness, to bear away the-sins of the people, while the other was to be offered to the Lord as a sacrifice. "In contrast to the priestly mon opoly of service with its archaic forms of expiation, the founders of the Synagogue invested the Day of Atone ment with a more spiritual meaning and one that was more in accord with the prophets of Israel who associated with God the attributes of love and mercy. "According to these teachers of Judaism repentance could not be ob tained through any other mediation than the personal effort of the sinner to purge himself of his evil thoughts and to mend his evil ways by his own personal effort and the stout resolve to cleave unto God and walk in His ways. Confessing his sins before God with a contrite heart combined with practical efforts to harmonize his deeds with those laws of love and life proclaimed by God, constituted the true repentance and lifted man up from his low estate to sit among princes Forgiveness is sought not only for Jew but for all mankind. "In modern times a memorial ser vice is included. This service reminds the worshipper that death is a con summation of life and that no one has lived worthily is forgotten nor his life's efforts void. The memorial service is crowded with tender mem ories and utilizes the solemn moments to impress on the congregation the imperative need of duty and service to God and country." Women Must Naturalize. According to the announcement made by John F. Jackson, chief fed eral naturalization officer at New Or 'leans a few days ago alien women who wish to become American citizens must now file separate naturalization papers and undergo separate exami nations both in case of married and single women, as a result of the new citizenship law passed by congress. Mr. Jackson said that American wo men who marry foreigners in the fu ture and have in the past, may, under the new act, stand an examination and if they are successful may regain their citizenship. Formerly when an American woman married an alien she automatically lost her citizenship Under the old law when the husband became naturalized his wife automati cally became a citizen. - In an address delivered at Cleve land, Ohio, a few days ago, James M. Cox, former governor of Ohio and Democratic candidate for president in 1920, declared that the people this year will be asked to elect a congress which will undo the tariff recently enacted into law by the Reprblican party which he termed a monstrosity. The parish of Calcasieu should be in good shape financially judging from the size of its assessments. The rolls for 1922 recently completed by the assessor, show a total of $49,000,000; over $40,000,000 more than the total for Ascension parish. RECESS. Ladies, gentlemen and fellow Citizens of remote, My hand on the bible, these Planters got my goat. We will take recess from "A Dream,y' "Reality," Terms" and "Results." The next we will call up the witnesses, To see our whereabouts. When we get our witnesses All placed on the stand, We will then know Whether or not he is a man. We will call up each And every one in turn So as to see from them What can we learn, This thing of calling out For help to begin, Then sending a veterinarian To the four winds. It shows poor citizenship And should not exist, Thanks to the honest class They are not guilty of this. We will next begin by Calling number one, To avoid this let him Come up with the mon'. As he has already Put in the call It is entirely up to him Not to let me fall. Unless he happens to be A terribly big lummock, You can promise your back It takes cash for your stomach. There is one thing in life Which is hard to understand, Why is it a man does not Pay off when he can. He is not on earth, Remember, always to stay, He brought nothing with him Nor can he take anything away. Why not, while he is here, An agreeable visit spend, Show himself up to be With the royal leading men. When uncontrollable ,circumstances And hard luck is in his path, Then only must he Hold that eagle fast. The recess period is now over, My regards to you many; Our next issue will be in lieu To bills cancelled jrior to March, 1920. CHARLES MO R N JACOB, Veterinarian, C6ovent, La. GIVEN CONTROL OUTLETS. River Commuirsiu e The river and harbor bill recently signed by President Harding, gives authrity to the Mississippi River Commission over the tributaries and outlets which are affected by the flood waters of the Mississippi. The rivers affected by this legislation are the Atchafalaya, Ouachita, Black, Yazoo, Arkansas, White and St. Fran cis. It is expected later to obtain an ap propriation of $30,000,000 to levee these streams as far as they are affect ed by high water in the Mississippi. It is said that the extension of the ju risdiction of the Mississippi river com mission to cover the lower stretches of these rivers will serve a useful pur pose prior to the time that the levee appropriation will become available, in that such flood control as now is in progress can be unified. In the case of high water this unified con trol will make it possible to conduct protective efforts in a systematic way. Advertise in The Chief.

Larger Exhibits of Live Stock and Farm Products Expected This Year. The prevailing fair weather and the good crops and improved prices over last year in the parishes composing the South Louisiana Fair Association have created a much more optimistic feeling on the part of the farmers with the result that exhibits of live stock and agriculture will greatly exgeed those of last year both in quantity and quality at the tenth annual show and exposition which will be held in Donaldsonville from October 7 to 15 inclusive. Entries of show herds of beef and dairy cattle have already been receiv ed from a number of parishes throughout the state, including As cension, Lafourche, Terrebonne, East Baton Rouge, West Feliciana and Tangipahoa. The display of fine livestock will be second only to that of Shreveport apd will be the most numerous in the history of the South Luisiana Fair Association. The pre miums in this department amount to more than $2000 and competition is limited only to the State of Louisiana The superintendent is R. H. Benton of Elm Park, West Feliciana parish, who is a breeder and farmer of wide experience. Some ten parishes will be repre sented in the agricultural building with complete exhibits of farm pro ducts. Included in this number are the parishes of Assumption, St. John, Lafourche, Terrebonne, East Baton Rouge, St. James, Point Coupee, Iber ville, West Baton Rouge and Ascen sion. In addition to the parish exhibits there will be exhibits from agricultural high schools notably Oak Grove and Dutchtown in Ascension parish and Reserve and Ed gard in St. John. Another interesting and instructive exhibit in the Agri cultural Building will be the U. S. Forestry exhibit which will be in charge of government demonstrators. The agricultural department of the fair is under the superintendency of W. B. Stuart of Belle Helene, As cension parish, who is president of the police jury and one of the leading farmers in the parish. The chief point of interest in this department lies in the competition and rivalry between the different parishes for the capital premium of $250 cash which is awarded for the best exhibit represented. The number of premiums won, the total cash value of the pre- c rniums won and the general appear- 4 ance of the parish booth. This pre rmium was awarded last year to La fourche parish with Iberville a close s second. This year, in addition to the c above, Terrebonne, St. John and East Baton Rouge will be strong contend- t srs. -~C A premium of $100 for first prize, farm products grown on one farm or e plantation during the year 1922 ex- I ,ept sugar cane products which. are I sligible from the crop of 1921. This t premium was won last year by the I Bowie farm, in Lafourche parish. A zandsome trophy cup is awarded to c the individual exhibitor-a firm or I !orporation also being eligible to com- t 2ete-who totals the greatest number t )f points as represented by cash prizes I Non in the various departments of the t Pair, 'which may include agriculture, t cattle, horses, sheep, goats, and poul- h ,ry, provided he is the bona fide own- a sr of each exhibit. This cup was won 0 ast year by the Estate of H. C. Minor, n [errebonne parish.

A large number of representatives o'f the three important sugar cane or ganizations in the state, met at the St. Charles Hotel in New Orleans Thursday, and merged the three as sociations into one under the name of the Ameriena Sugar Cane League. The bodied which were merged were the Louisiana Sugar Planters' Asso ciation, which has existed as an in corporated body since 1888 and of w1* l l. ý, rberville is ers Association of which Henry. N. Pharr of Iberia, is president, and the Producers' and Manufacturers' Pro tective Organization of which J. C. LeBourgeois of New Orleans is head. The Louisiana Sugar Planters' Asso ciation has devoted its activities chief ly to industrial and scientific matters; the American Cane Growers' Associa tion to tariff, and the Producers' and Manufacturers' Protective Organiza tion to freight rate matters. Under the consolidation all lines of work hitherto performed will be carried on and others added, the amalgamated organization working through com mittees on scientific and industrial work, tariff, freight rates, etc. The Louisiana sugar industry and that of all the states where sugar cane is grown, will have in the American Sugar Cane League a very powerful organization and the sugar industry will, it is believed, be taken care of in every direction more effectively than has heretofore been possible.

A solar ply xus blow to your thoughts; "When Dawn Came" is that and more. This mighty prduction is announced as the attraction at the Community Theatre next Thursday. You may be satisfied with yourself, but what is that great barrier between you and happiness? The great bridge of sighs and despair looms up in everyone's life sooner or later. Man's greatest problem is which way to turn at the old cross-sr .s. your own heart, or have you merely drifted in line with the slipping mass es? Hugh E. Derker's drama "'When Dawn Came," unfolds a story of a man who didn't know which way to turn when trouble came his way. He whipped himself when he gave up and he became an outcast and a burden to society. He had every requisite for a successful life, but matter over mind weakened it. It is your duty to see "When Dawn Came," and to know how John Bran don came to know himself. Cane Crops Late. The cane crops in this section are somewhat late this season, and the stand on many plantations is far be low the average. With the opening of the grinding season at hand the cane has not reached that stage of maturity usual at this time nor is it believed that it can catch up during the brief period of time, which will elapse before the beginning of grind ing operations. This condition is at tributed to the unusual bad weather which prevailed during the spring which made cultivation difficult if not impossible, and the high water which cast gloom among the planters and caused them to hesitate to spend money for the poorer workings of the crops, and in the meantime the cane suffered. When the danger from the high water had passed away rain set in and precluded the possibility of proper cultivation on many farms. The sugar market is good, however, and the planters are hopeful of ob taining fair prices for their products, which will in a measure make up for the reduced yield due to unfavrable conditions. According to reports of the state board of health there is considerable dengue fever in some parts of the state mainly in Shreveport, Jeaner ette, Lafayette, Houma, Thibodaux, Morgan City and Plaquemine.
