BAY ST. LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI, SATURDAY, MAY 21, 1920 PRESS ASSOCIATION MEIERSSPENDDAY IN BAY SAINT LOUIS. Spend Day Here as Guests of Saon ger Amusement Company at “Elmwood Manor.” BARBECUE WAS FEATURE OF MEMORABLE DAY. City Attorney Robt. L. Gcnin, Re presenting Mayor R. W. Webb Welcomes Publishers. Members of the Mississippi State Press Association, in fifty-fifth an nual convention at <: ulfport this week, spent yesterday in Bay St. Louis. They came by invitation of Mayor R. W. Webb in behalf of the city and by invitation of the Saen ger Amusement Company whose guests they were at “Elmwood Man or,” the beautiful and inviting recre ation home, which dots the Bay line, where the spreading oaks in all their majesty compel admiration. Public-spirited citizens owning au tomobiles met the pparty at the i.iil road depot here and carried them on to Elmwood. Reaching there, Hon. Robt. L, Genin, representing the Mayor in his absence- delivered the address of “welcome to our city, which was a good one and well re ceived. He was introduced by Mr. L. H. Grandjean, acting hst, master of ceremonies for the Saenger Amusement Company. The response was made by Mr. Eugene Clark, of the Saenger Company, who welcom ed the representatives of the press to Elmwood in terms that were not uncertain. These addresses were responded to by President A. Lawrence of the Grenada dentine., Col. R. H. Henry, of the Jackson Clarion-Ledger; Guy Clark of the Clarksdale Register and others. All of this time motion pictures W ere taken of the speakers and their isteners. Included in the reel was Col. R. H. Henry and Mrs Henry of the Clarion-Ledger, with their grand son, Miller Henry. Here stood the oldest and youngest members of the Association. At noon dinner was served. A me nu that could not be surpassed. Deli cious barbecued meats were served bountifully and eaten with relish Long tables with their burdens ot good things to eat stood under the oaks. A. O. Bourdon of Biloxi was the chef in charge. The tables were set for 125 guests. The balance of the afternoon was spent in dancing, strolling and bath ”g along the beach front, and when the hour arrived for the guests with i our city gates to depart truly was it “the end of a perfect day. The weather was ideal and the sea breez es were at their best, with the water calling the bathers all day. The Saenger Amusement Com pany flung wide the doors of theii hospitable home- and the entertain ment throughout the day lacked noth ing. No effort was spared; seeming ly no expense was considered Mem bers of the ppress party were driven over the city during the day, and left fo r home well impressed with Bay St. Louis. YOUR LIBERTY BOND. The United States Government bor rowed money from you to finance the war. You hold the Government’s promise to pay you back. This pro mise is called a Liberty Bond or Victory Note. On this bond is stat ed the condition under which the Government borrowed from you. For instance: If you hold a bond of the Third Liberty Loan, it states that on April 15th of each year until maturity, you will receive interest on the amount you paid for the bond. Other issues bear other rates of inter est and other maturity dates, all of which are clearly stated on the bond. Now. if yod keep your bond until the date when the Government pays you in full for it, you do not need to worry if, in the meantime, the priceis low one day or high the next. You and Uncle Sam are living up to your agreement with each other, and neith er will lose by it. On the other hand, if you sell your Liberty Bond now, you will find that the man you sell it to will not give you a dollar for every dollar you paid for it. The price has been brought down because so many people are offering to sell their bonds. If the market is flooded with tomatoes, you can buy them cheap, but if everyone is clamoring for tomatoes and there are few to bo had. the price goes urn The same is true of Liberty Bonds. Short sighted people are dumping them on the market, and wise ones are buying them. The best advice that can he given to the owner of Liberty Bond is this: Hold the bond you bought during the war* it is safe and sound as the Unit ed States Government itself. Buy as many more at the present low rate ns you can afford. If you hod them to maturity, you are bound to make the difference between what they soil nt now and their face val ue. You will also receive good in terest on your investment. Hold on to your Liberty bonds and buy more. CHANCERY SI MMONS.—NO. 2324.

SUCCESSFUL PRESENTATION OF “THE FRUIT OF HiS FOLLY.” i Local Talent Present Five-Act Drama Benefit Young Peoples Mis sionary Society. A large and appreciative audience at W. O . vV. Hail representing intelli gence and culture of our city, wit nessed last night the excellent presentation of “The Fruit of ills Folly,” in five acts. The play was for the benefit of the Young Peoples Missionary So ciety, and it is noteworthy to state that in addition to the artistic suc cess which marked the efforts of the young ladies and gentlemen com posing the cast, the affair was equal ly a financial success. It is safe to say that after all returns from sale of tickets will have been made, a snug amount of cash will have been add ed to the Society’s treasury. Each and everyone in the cast carried out their respective part to such a degree of excellence that it would be difficult to particularize, however, suffice to say the entire performance was indeed one where the participants displayed histrionic talent of merit and the interpreta tion of the play was splendid. In fact, the efforts of this company should not cease here, hut a series of plays would be welcome. The pub lic would anticipate such entertain ment and show encouragement as was so substantially accorded last night. The cast follows- everyone to have been well selected for his or her part.

GAINESVILLE SCHOOL SUCCESSFULLY ENOS SESSION FOR YEAR Term Came to End Friday Night— Large Attendance From All Parts of Neighborhood TOWNS NEAR BY WERE WELL REPRESENTED IN ATTENDANCE Too Much Praise Cannot Be Given Miss Oma Pittman, Teacher, For Success of School.

Kol lar, county superintendent of educa tion. The exercises consisted of music, songs, recitations- dialogues, drills, etc., and was something a little out of the ordinary for a country school. I Much credit is due Miss Pittman for the manner in which she conducted the affair, and it could be perceived that she had her little ones under perfect control and excellent training, and that much good had been accom plished in the educational cause dur ing the term, with bright prospects for the future.

REPORT IS A FINE ONE AND EN COURAGING TO ALL. Geologist Makes Report to Effect That Pool of Oil 500 Yards W’ids Exists on Land. At a called meeting of the stock holders of the Banderet Oil Company held at the courthouse Wednesday night, the organizers and temporary officers of the company presented a comprehensive report of their labors and results, which follow, an! which was received with unanimity by the many stockholders present. The statement is an open one, and will be read with considerable inter est. It is bound to insppire further confidence. The report in full; Your undersigned temporary offi cers and organizers of the Banderet Oil Company wish to file this their report of the p omotion of the com pany the sale of stock and the hand ling of the business of the company.as follows: Mr. Banderet demonstrated to our complete satisfaction that he had 1500 acres of land in Wharton coun ty, Texas, that would produce oil. Having great confidence in his abili ty in the oil business we readily grasped an opportunity of forming a company to develop the land. A great number of our people have from time to time invested in oil compan ies while the people handling the fi nances and doing the drilling they knew nothing of. We all felt that in some future time we may invest in oilscurities we saw our chance that with a man like Mr. Banderet man aging the works in the field and peo ple we know handling the business or office end w r e would all feel safe and have great prospects of develop ing the 1500 acres and producing oil securities; we saw our chance that had faith and invested in stocks. We immediately applied to the sec retary of State for a permit to sell stock which was granted on the pay ment of the fee required by the State. We prepared and published a charter, which was approved by the secretary of State, the attorney gen eral and granted by the governor, which is filed with this report, Yt . will notice from a reading of the charter granted, that the Banderet Oil Company has all the powers re ared to do all things necessary a developing oil, gas and other mine rals. Mr. Banderet and Mr. Genin have advanced all money necessary for the promotion of the company, as you will find from their accounts- ex cepting some items paid for us after stock was sold. Mr. Banderet and Mr. Genin are not asking for a refund of these amounts in cash, but desire same to be issued to them in stock. We have agreed to accept the 1500 acres owned by Mr. Banderet in Wharton county, Texas, pay him therefor at the rate of $4.00 an acre, not in cash, but in capital stock of the company. We are aware that in procuring this land it cost Mr. Banderet a great amount in cash and much of his valuable time, and to cast his destiny on the success of the company by accepting all of the purchase price in stock, shows the faith he has in the ultimate success of the company. We ask your ap proval and commendation of his act. We found no better name for the company than that which we have chosen and realize this by the gener ous, magnificent faith demonstrated by the subscriptions to stock you have taken in the past 60 days- show ing you heartily approve of our ac tions. We have to date received sub scription to our capital stock, amount ing to $17,200.00. We have in cash in bank, as per receipts herewith, a total of $6,425.00. This w r e now turn over to you and the permanent officers you will elect. We have the power and authority to pay the commission of 15 per cent to sell eur capital stock, but we have found it necessary to pay or aerree to nay only 10 per cent, very little of this commission has been paid out to date. Asa large portion of the commissions were reinvested in stock of the company, the permanent offi cers must attend to this. It may, however- be necessary 5r the future to pay a commission of 15 per cent to sell the remaining portion of the stock. We say for the reason that all of the stock we sold, not one cent was paid for advertising pur noses. This may be necessary in the future. We have procured from a reputa ble geologist of hisrh standing, re porting an oil pool 500 yards wide on our land, copies of which arepresented for your information. We also deliver our books, seal and stationery as well as all correspondence. The organization of a company in its various stages encounters many obstacles, the principal one being the same attack made on all companies in their infancies by pessimistic rum 's and suspicions. We have over come those with flying colors and now present to you a growintr con cern, a large capital and cash in banks over and above our greatest expectation. We cride ourselves in the organiza tion of a company without one cent of the rompany’s money paid or used for promotion purposes or salaries l of any kind and all intrested ac -pting the amounts they have spent in the company’s stock. We have had the pleasure of hav ing the confidence of the best people in our county and in the county of Wharton, Texas- as well as in the State of Louisiana and who who know proclaim our chances for success in the production of oil, one to be envied by all newcompan ies and persons in the oil business. Wo ask your apprpoval of our actions and hope what we have done will be the beginning of continued successes and large financial benefits to all who have and will invest in the Banderet Oil Company. Respectfully submitted: CHAS. G. MOREAU, F. BANDERET. R. W. WEBB. ROBT. L. GENIN. LIVING FOR TWO. How much does it cost two people to live? W’hat is the least salary up on which a man can safely marry his sweetheart and undertake the sup poi’t of a wife. The Federal Reserve Bank of Chi cago puts the figure at $125 per month. In a recent rule it prohibits employes marrying with a salary un der that figure unless the matter is taken up with the hank officials be fore. With the cost of clothes higher than ever, with groceries still cost ly, and with every expense at a peak, the cost of living is higher than in re cent years. This naturally has a de terrent effect upon marriages, and postpones the date for many couples until later in life. For a small-salaried man it takes some courage to assume additional responsibilities at this time of high prices. You (C&NHAVB | j j W Tf l< # OUR.
