The Algiers Branch of the Commer eial Trust and Barings Bank located on Patterson and Verret Streets, was certainly a good Santa Clause this year to tbhe Algiers people. They sent out their Christmas Savings obecks on Tuesday, paying out the great rm of $12,t99.55. Conideurln that our people have been called upon durinl the past year to buy two sets of Liberty Loan Bonds, and subscribe to Red Cross, Community War Work Campaign, War Saving Stamps etc.., the showing made by the Christmas Savings ac counts were very gratifying to the banking Institutions. It is predicted that the year 1919 will be a redord year for savings banks, and especially will there be larger amounts deposited again for Christmas Savinags The Christmas Savings Checks of the Commerolal Trust and Savings bank are beautifully lithographed with a picture of Santa Claus which is very attractive and inspiring to the young boys and girls, but the really interesting part of the check is the printed portion which says "Will pay One hundred twenty dollars anad eighty oeats."

The numbei of men at the Algiers station will be reduced, but kt will still continue to be a permanent naval post, he said, explaining that New Orleans was an important naval center and that he could forsee nothing that would take the station away from its present location. The officer could not forecast Just how soon the West End camp would fallinto disuse. Present orders cov ering demobilization at the two posts aover principally the reanstatement to inactive duty of the reserve forces, called out by the war. So far, about 100 men have thus been retired, he explalned. The present orders call for the de mbillation retirement to inactive duty of eme man out of five, and the officers are attempting as far as pos sible first to send back home those men who most need to go back, such as men whom the war was prevent ing from ftnishing their education, it was explained.

W'ednesday morning of last week. after an appropriate program had been rendered, the usual collection of Thanksgiving donations took place. Potatoes, onions, and fruits of dif terent kinds were collected in large amounts. Besides these, there were edibles of every description. These articles were sent to the leaders of the various churches of our district, for distribution among those who were in need of help 4pd cheer. Some needy families were .,ent baskets of provisions. The Eighth Grade boys worked very wilingly and. under the principals di rection, collected, arranged, and dis: tributed the articles. We take this method of thanking the boys and their parents for their generous response to the Thanksglv. ing call and we know that they re ceive God's daily blessings and, in that fact, they get a just return. The principal's office has been en larged and renovated. The walls have been done over in two shades of buff and the woodwork has been stained oak. This important section of the school has an inviting and comfort able appearance. Messrs. Dewey, Thorning, and Ed mund Hebert were very welcome visitors to the school last week and the teachers were very glad to know that these splendid young men had not forgotten their old school and their teachers. The former came from Norfolk and has done active work in foreign waters in the hospital service, and the latter is stationed at the Naval Air Base, Pensacola, Florida. Both of these rollicking sailor boys have improved in every possible way, being in excellent physical condition and cheerful spirits. We wish them good luck in the future. A called meeting of the McDonogh No. 4 Co-operative Club was held last Tuesday. Owing to the Inclement weather, there were not many pres ent but much work was accomplished. Because the school needs so many Improvements that require funds, the club decided to give an entertainment the and dance in the school Saturday. sa December 14, at 6 p. m. We need tilt the co-operation of every parent and im- child to help make this affair a suec ael cess and we, hope to se a larg rm- generous crowd present on that oc on casion. ris A fine beand will be engaged and put the young gentlement and ladies who et form the dancing crewd of our din on trlct, are promisd a good time ff they attend.

O'Keefe. The delay in getting out the bills was caused by a change in the as. sessment system. necessitating the making of new assessessment rolls. Personal taxes must be paid by lie cember 14, said Mr. O'Keefe, or be delinquent. Mr. O'Keefe appealed to the' public to pay their personal taxes promptly and avoid rush and con fusion. The fact that poll taxes are being paid slowly also was pointed out by Mr. O'Keefe. who is making prepar ations to meet the usual last-minute rush. RED CROSS NOTES. During the past week very little work was turned out by the Surgical Dressings Deparrment. In fact, the result is most discouraging, in view -of the large allotments given us by the New Orleans Chapter. The em ergetey order for 20oo 81-A Pads for French hospitals is not yet com pleted, only 1.155 being finished to date. This order should have been completed by October 25th, and the prospects are that it will be carried over into next year. The October and November allotments remain un touched, and the December allot ment is due. From the foregoing report, It will be seen that although the war is over In a sense, there is still plenty of work for the Red Cross, and It will be just as unpatriotic to desert the cause now as it would have been while the war was in progress. Miss Herbert, Capt. of Surgical Dressings, therefore, urges all her workers to report at 'the workroom during this and next week. The working days for this department have been re duced to three, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. 'Mrs. W. J. Vau HRes, Cotamandant a the Algiers Canteen, wishes all those who have expressed their de sirp to join this branch of Red Cross work. to meet with her at the K. of C. Hall, Priday, 6th ast, at 8 p. ', for the purpose of turning in their applicaton blank, receiving membership cards, emblems, etc. Instructions will also be given in regard to the material for the unl forms. It is hoped that erane 0 has given her name wll be pasnt at this meeting; those un ale to attend will please notify the secretary, Miss G. Herbert, sa4 re. Cehve ftom her the aeeeeaary ntornma tis. We are advsed, by the Canteen Headquarters thatf then Is Just as much need for this department as heretofore, and that the movement of men from eamp to camp and those returning from oversees whi will pass through our city, will make this feature of the Red Cros veryn ece sary for an Indefinite period. The Hospital Gaments and Re fugee departments have completed their allotments which will be de livered to tbs New Orleam ead quarters on Monday of nest week. There swl remain some sweaters to be distributeod. Knitters are asked to come forward that our al lotment will be completed on tioe. A meeting of Branch No. 4, A. R.
