most daring woman aviator Amer

A community is often judged by the
character and reliability of its financial
institutions, and if so, Washington par
ish ranks among the foremost.
The livest and fastest growing insti
tution in the parish is the Washington
Bank & Trust C('o., located at Bogalusa,
Franklinton and Angie, capitalized at
$50,000. with a surplus of $5,000, and
deposits of over $150,000.
The bank was organized in January.

has held the office continuously up to
the present day.

ton Parish my candidacy for dele
gate to the Constitutional Conven
tion. In .making this announce
mentIrealize that aspire to a
high office and one of great respon
sibility. Framing the constitution,
for a great state. is a serious matter
as in it are embedded the basic
principles that secure to a people
personal freedom and the right to
enjoy the fruits of their labor in
security, and is the mud-sill upon
which our happiness, prosperity, and
protection is built. I feel that my
experience in legal and business
affairs will enable me to safeguard
the interests of the people of the
Parish and State.
There is certain to be a number
of subjects considered by this Con
vention, the correct solution of which
is of vital interest to the people of
the State. The question of taxation
will, in all probability, over-shadow
them all. I shall consistently op*
pose increasing the burden of tax
ation and favor such laws as will
distribute this burden among all
classes of people according to their
wealth. I also believe in eliminat
ing every unnecessary office. I have
always believed and now believe
that there are too mafny, politteal
parasites who enrich themselves at
the expense df'the. tax payers and
whose work-if we may call it such
is utterly useless to the State. I am
deeply interested in the welfare of
our public schools. I have for sev
