THE LONG CHRISTMAS GIFT ii
There are many good gifts that one
can choose at Christmas, but for lin- a
gering satisfaction, long-drawn-out, f
what is there, after all, that can be a
named in the same breath with The
Youth's Companion? The fan is only t
begun with the first Christmas num
ber. Thereafter through the 52 weeks
of the long, long year it is constantly
supplying fresh sources of amuse,
ment and informatior. Now it is the
beginning of a new serial, then it is
a cqntribution of vital interest to the
youth interested in sport or science,
next it is a brand-new story by C. A. I
8tephens or A. S. Pier, or a tale of I
wild adventure in the old Indian days 1
by men who have actually lived among I
and pow-wowed with the redskins.
But why say more? No other Christ
mas gift is welcomed with so much
pleasure. Try it and see.

It proved a clash between the
Algiers Acker New Regular organiza

clined to attend the caucus and be
bound for the appointment of Louis
Acker as the traffic clerk, brother of
the Algiers leader. Judge Duffy did t
not want Acker and preferred Bar

When it reached the council it de
veloped that neither Commissioners
Stanley W. Ray, Richard M. Murphy
nor Wilbert Black had been consulted.
Mr. Ray stated to reporters prior
to the convening of the council that
he did not know of the Barrett rec

"I cannot see why politics should

"This clerk is the confidential man
to the court. I think it only fair
that the judge should have some say
in naming his chief clerk, instead of
having someont forced upon him 1ith
whom he might not be congenial."
The force of His Honor's argument
appeared to sink home, despite the
fact that the three O. D. A. commis
sioners saw the necessity of standing
by the Acker machine.
Nothing was done. It was agreed
to refer the whole matter to Com

Four important measures will be
voted on at the eletcion to be held a
next Tuesday. Nov. 7-the Public st
Belt Railroad bonds, the Dock Board t'
plan for 99-year lease for ranal sites. hi
the Orleans Levee Board measure
for a sea wall tor New Orleans. and a
the two-million-dollar auditorium. s
Of the four measures above. th.' o
first three deserve your consideration c
and vote, while the latter should re- la
ceive a very decisive NO. as this Ii
auditorium will mean extra taxation, f
it will become a liability on the city.
and as the two million dollars are
needed so much more in other direc
tions, such as sidewalks, street re- I
pairs, etc.. it would not he just to 1
yourself and other tax payers to vote
YES on this measure.
The most important amendment
will be that of a sea wall for New I
Orleans, which will be constructed by
the Levee Board. This great im
provement will not carry a tax and
it will give New Orleans a beautiful
parkway, a lake shore driveway, a
nkew residential section and a better
protection at our lake front from
storms. Vote FOR the measure.
