ALGI[S DRiAICH AI.C,
The Algiers branch of N. O. Chap
ter A. R. C., held its regular month
ly meeting, Monday 25th, in the K.
of C. Hall.
Miss Ella M. Rees, chairman, re
ported the following articles sent ov
er to chapter headquarters: On Feb
ruary 27th, 29 sweaters and 12 pairs
of socks; on March 22nd, 9 sweaters,
2 pairs of socks and 6 pajama suits.
Miss Herbert, instructor of the sur
gical dressings class, made the fol
The class has met regularly three
times a week. From February 26th
to March 21st, the following dressings
have been made: 170 4x4 compresses
78 9x9 compresses, 18 6x3 gauze
strips. On February 19th the first de
livery of muslin bandages was made
and consisted of the following: 50
abdominal bandages, 41 sealed ban
dages, 50 triangular bandages, 4 T.
On March 19th the following surgi
cal dressings were sent over: 100
9x9 compresses, 220 4x4 compresses,
16 3 yard rolls.
This class has now a membership
of fifteen, but more workers are need
ed, as there is a large quantity of
special dressings to be made as soon
as our branch allotment is received,
which will be during the next week
At a meeting of all the heads and
workers of branches of N. O. Chapter
A. R. C., held in Holmes' Hall, Sunday
the 22nd, Mrs. C. H. Moberly, direct
or of the Woman's Bureau, Gulf Di
vision, A. R., told of the work that
will have to be accomplished by N.
0. Chapter, A. R. C., and its branches.
The American Red Cross will have to
furnish the army and navy with all
the dressings that will be needed on
this side and over the sea. This will
necessitate working every day in the
week and the trebling of our forces.
Mrs. Geo. Denegre of the French
and Belgian Relief, has appealed to
the Red Cross to assist her and her
society in a drive for clothing. This
drive will begin April 1st and contin
ue until the 15th. It is necessary to
collect about 300 tons of clothing.
Mrs. Denegre requested that only
sound and substantial clothing be giv
en. Garments that can be worn only
once or twice would not be worth
shipping space. Furthermore worn
dresses or those of very thin mater
ial would be of no practical use to
the women of northern Fiance and
Belgium; they want warm top and
under garments. These unfortunate
people have not reeeived anything in
the past year and their condition is
terrible. Bedding is also badly need
ed; blankets, sheets and pillow cases.
The Algiers branch, A. R. C., will
receive contributions of clothing for
this worthy cause and will deliver
same to the headquarters of the
Preach ad Belgian Relief. Send
your donations to the K. of C. Hall.
The people of our district have al
ways responded generously to all ap
peals for a worthy cause, and we
hope that fi this instance they will
help us to exceed all ther branches
of N. O. Chapter in the quantity of
SAVE YOUR ROSE PETAIS.
Harry Papworth, chairman of the
committee for gathering roses to
shower on the visiting soldiers, in the
parade Saturday given in connection
with the Elks patriotic celebration,
has organised receiving stations for
roses. Elks and the public can send
Sowers to any of the stations for de
livery to Mr. Papworth's committee.
Mr. Papworth is anxious to establish
other stations and asks for volun
teers. He can be reached at the Met
aire Ridge Nursery.
Pull blown roses only are wanted.
Roses may be cut at any time now
and pat in a basket as the petals are
to be thrown, not the Sowers. It will
help the rose ushes to cut these
Sowers. Do not cut buds. All Elks
are asked to cavass the hbr
hoods for flowers. The reeving

Myaor Behrman said the City Hall
will observe the daylight saving hours
after March 31, as all the clocks will be
set an hour forward. Employes, while
apparently arriving at 9 o'clock, will
in reality be there an hour sooner and
will leave at 3 o'clock although the
clocks will point to 4.
Paul B. Habans, acting superintend
ent of public schools, sent out circulars
to all principals calling attention to
the change and instructing that the
school clocks be set forward an hour.
The registration office also will be
affected. As this office has its hours
fixed by law, the setting forward of the
hands of the elock will make the office
conform to the law and the daylight

0IL INTERESTS MERGE
Oil investors throughout the state
are deeply interested in the an
nouncemtent that comes from New
Orleans telling of the consolidation
of the Louisiana Southern Oil and
Gas Corporation and the Southern
States Oil and Gas Company. It
wa:' affected this week and the new
concern is now doing business at
6:10 Gravier street. It will be known
for the time as the Southern States
O(il and Gas ('ompany.
In many respects this merger will
mean a great deal to the man who
expetts to put a few dollars in oil.
In the first place the new company
wil have the advantage of a nearly
doubled capitalization and the ad
dition of several strong and promi
nent officers and directors. Dr.
Thomas Stark. a pioneer oil man
of this state who lives at Thidodaux
is president of the Southern States
By far the most important item
in coonection with the amalgamation
i" the fact that drilling will begin
in the Anse Ie Blutte field within
tetn days. The derick is up and the
rig is in place to start the first test
well. Oil already has been found
there in paying quantities and is
now selling at $3 a barrel. This is
considered a high price for Gulf oil,
heretofore regarded as a low grade
Not only in Anse Le Bette. but in
Terrebonne will drilling begin right
away. Not later than April 15 will
see the first well going down in a
territory that promises to uncover
the largest pool in the United
States. Charles Dickensheets. man
aging the field operations for the
Southern States Company, believes
the Terrebonne field is the most
promising in the United States.
Don Farnsworth who was manag
ing director of the old Southern
States will be general manager of
the new concern. He has been con
nected in a financial way with the
Democratic National Committee for
a number of years, was formerly
secretary of the Chicago Association
of Commerce and itterested in Red
Cross and government financial en
"If the people of New Orleans
thought they were in the oil business
fifteen years ago when they bought
stock in a $10,000.00 company that
held one acre in the Beaumont
field they were badly mistaken,"
Mr. Dickensheets declared the other
day. 'They were only playing into
the hands of shrewd Wall street
stock manipulators. However, I do
not mean to infer that stock selling
is not a part of oil development for
it is. Look at the holders of the
original Standard Oil stock today;
they are the richest peple In the
world. Many of the small producers
who wanted to sell their holdings
to the Standard and who had to
take stock for them were greatly
surprised to find that the stook
brought them more revenue than
the actual money they would have
"There is a homely esaylng that
'there Is nothing certadn eamegt
death and taxes'. We should re
member, however, that figures have
been published to prove that 9$ per
cent of all commercial enterprises
fall. This high percentage of ifal
ures is found In the merchandising
business and in various other lines
of commercial endeavor which we
are too apt to consider as consera
tive, while we characterise oil ln
vestment as speculative.
"The fact that ntatistidans tell
us that 95 per cent of conmerdat
enterprises fail does not interfere
with the continuation of commeree
and industry. People go right an
starting new stores and new mer
chandising enterprises of all kinds,
whereas the same people, because
they may have at some time bought
an oil stock that did not pay, will
denounce oil investment as wildesat
speculations, and eve ws. The
fact is that under modern methods
of oil development in the hands of
practicel operetors approeimately
85 per cent .of the oil wells are
