BOGALUSA._ CTIVE A , OF C
Organized Effort Will Be Made To increase Membership. Truck Growers Have Joined
Association. Retail Merchants
There is no city, town or village o
whose ambition is to grow in pop- as
ulation and industries and take Afl
some position in the world of com- v
merce that does not boast of a com- ve
mercial organization of some kind, Go
and Bogalusa, the Magic City of the En
South, has just reason to be proud
of its Association of Commerce. tel
The business men of Bogalusa re- the
alized their need of such an organi- an
zation several years ago and formed or"
the first Progressive Union & Busi
ness Men's Protective Association be
which accomplished much good and m pc
later disbanded. m
A committee composed of the I
leading business and professional sp
men of the city took.up the task of in
organizing an Association that ti,
would be a credit to a city several
times the size of Bogalusa and af- be
ter several weeks of hard work the tc
charter of the Bogalusa Association al
of Commerce was completed. b
One of the first objects of the as- i ri
sociation was to obtain a large mem- g
bership and to that end the dues a
were made very low, in fact so low t,
that any man that takes the least ii
pride in the development and prog- 1
ress of the city would be doing him
self an injustice by not becoming at
Membership in the Association is i
open to every citizen of Bogalusa.
Every merchant, professional man, 1
property owner and tax payer l
should be a member of the As- i
sociation and should take an active 1
interest in its work.
The Association is divided into
the following Divisions: The Re
tail Merchants Division, The Truck
Growers Division, The Publicity
Division, The Industrial Division,
The Real Estate, Land & Immigra
tion Division and the Stock Rais
ing Division, each working along the
lines for the betterment of the va
rious branches of industry suggested
by their titles.

The Association is governed by a
board of sixteen Directors com

t The active work however has just
begun, and the year 1915 promises i
e to be one of unusual activity. Plans
are now being made and perfected
by the Association to conduct a se

given by men of wide experience
I and national reputation. These en-'
w tertainments will be of considerable
t interest to all the citizens of Boga
SIt is also planned to have what is
a to be known as "Farmers Day" to
be held once a month at which time
is all the farmers and residents of the
a. I surrounding territory will be invited
n, I to Bogalusa for the day. A com
er mittee has been at work gathering
s- data for holding a monstrous fair
ye in the Bogalusa, and will no doubt
be in a position to report at the
Lto next meeting of the Board of Direct
te- ors when prompt action will be tak

The Retail Merchants Division has w
so far been very successful in its B
operations. Its principal objects be
ing to adopt such plans and gather
such information that will be of
