CAMPAIGN WILL CLOSE TONIGHT Parish Is $50,000 Behind, But Bogalusa Has "Over the Top" Gone J. A. Spekenhier annemaced Wednesday morning that Boya iusa, not Washington parish, had foaa "oTor the top" in the groat W.S.S. driva, the allotment of Bogalusa having badn j sub scribed in full Tuesday. The driva will continua until to morrow evening so that our over subscription will assist in bring the parish up ta its quota, which yesterday, was about $50,000 short. The success of the Boga luea W.S.S. drive has resulted in great praise for the local organ isation, especial credit being giv en to W. C, Flanders and Mayor Sullivan, as they were confront ed with raising an amount ^reat than the Liberty Loans and ail other patriotic drives com bined. If you have not yet pledged to purchase W.S.S. to the full extent of your ability, do so TODAY. The great War Savings Campaign, extended from June 28th to jluîy 4th and now drawing to a close, tiras one of the greatest movements elver at tempted by the government ajnd the Parish Director, War Council" Ward Commanders, Precinct Captaihs, Al lotment and List Committees, Di visional Agents, "Round Up" squads and other workers, kept unceasingly at the task. Headquarters in the Cassidy building was a bustling and busy place and the big 20-foot ther mometer slowly registered the re returns from the parish as they ar rived. To the surprise of all, the First Ward was the first "over the top," with D. Wallace as Ward Command er, followed closely by O. H. (farter, Ward Commander at Franl •*«*- *** •* ® and received his appointment! late. This ward went over easily anq big. J. C. Green, Ward Commander of Sixth, appointed Mrs. Carrie Saftford as "Daughter of the Regiment" and they carried this section over in fly ing style. Zona went over with about $12,000 subscription. C. C. Fortinberry, Ward Com mander of the Eighth, appointed ef ficient Precinct Captains and und er suprisingly leadership, swept the old eighth" into the honor column. The Fourth Ward outside of Boga lusa had an exceedingly heavy al lotment and did not pull through their $35,900.00, while Bogalusa staggered under an allotment of $323,101.00. Ward Flanders, the City Commander with some forty Precinct Capts-'ns, combed the city with a fine-tooth comb and nothing was overlooked. While it was disap Pointing, of coruse, to fail to reach the goal, but the result was more than creditable. At last reports, the Second Ward. , under E. Brock, had 30% of it 3 ; allotment; the Fifth, under Rev. C. j A. Maesev, thought it would go over, Seventh> under Mr . w . Daniel> « nr/ _ thtx xt„ had 60% with the Ninth, under Mr. Warren Wilks had about the same. ----W.S.S.—- Parish to Furnish Greatest Number i Washington parish will be asked to furnish rr.ore ir.en in the next draft call than any other parish in [ the state, except two. One of these parishes, Ascension, will furnish the same amount as Washington and other, Orleans, will furnish more men in threo of the wards. Washington arish wall furnish 54 men in the cr.il of July 22-26 and wnen the call is answered it is expected that Class A-1 wall be practically exhausted here. The young men in this class of sejetmen will be sent to Camp Hancock, Georgia. July 28-31 there will be a call for colored and Washington parish will furnish 29. -W.S.S. COUNCIL MEETING The regular monthly session of the Commission Council was held Tues day evening and discussing good roads, the necessity of having com mercial or b usines« course in con nection with the schools, the monthly reports of the varions -departsnents, occupied pxacvioaVg all of Ate ttme.LO BOGALUSA CITIZEN KILLED IN ACTION IN FRANCE JOHN HANMER, FORMERLY OF N. O. G. N. SHOPS, AND MEMBER OF THE KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS HERE, FIRST CITIZEN TO GIVE LIFE ON BATTLE FIELDS OF FRANCE The first Bogalusa citizen has been killed in action in France, being a victim of German guns last Tues day, and news to this effect was re ceived by relatives here Tuesday night and the report quickly spread over the city which caused great sorrow. Jno. Hanmer was well known in Bogalusa, especially among the employees of the N. O. G. N. shops, where he was employed as a car inspector. When the call came a year ago for volunteers Mr. Hanmer resigned his position and left Bogalusa on June IN ORDER THEY'LL BE CALLED Below are the draft numbers tabulated so any registrant of Wash ingten Parish may tell at a glance the order in which he will be called. In the first column is the registration card number; in the second column the number showing order of drawing. Although 1280 number were drawn at Washington the largest num her of registrants in Washington Parish is 250 so only 250 number are included in this list. Of course classification comes first. Then those registrants remaining in Class 1 are called in the order in which they were drawn. When Class 2 is reached thé same rule applies and so on in Class 3 and Class 4.

Miss Wolff, besides being a master of the art, gives instructions which any lady can understand. She will be pleased to make demontrations in your home, providing you invite five or more neighbors to attend. Ap pointment for home demonstrations can be made with Mias Wolff by phoning the Cut Over Load Depart ment of the Great Southern Ifcunber j 6th and the following day enlisted in the marines. He was a member of Bogalusa Council Knights of Colum bus and a nephhew of Frank Taaffee, of the N. O. G. N. shops. He was about 29 years of age and resided on Pleasant Hill for several months and then boarded on Michigan Ave., not being married. No details of his death were giv en in the message from the war department stating that he had met death in action. Mr. Taaffee went to New Orleans Wednesday, where he will try to get further details of his death. DRILLING WELLS; j INSURANCE DOWN, a i . j It is expected that t e ri Ss wi ; be erected for the drilling of the two artesian wells near the new city pumping plant this week and that . by the middle of the month the wells j will be ready for operation. o - j lowing the completion of the weJi ; it is expected that there will be a bid reduction in the fire insurance rates of the city. The purchasing of the fire equipment, building of the pumping station, maintaining a paid fire department and drilling of the wells were all done at the sug gestion of the Fire Prevention Bureau in order to get insurance at|tho low rate. -W.S.S^ Miss Winters, the popular supuer intendent of the Bogalusa Hospital, he« returned from a detfgjhtfui riait with relatives ami friects in BMMn WORK OR ORDERS NOW IN EFFECT FIGHT Police Department to Co Operate With Council of Defense EVERYBODY WORKING? If not, they had better go to work whether they are within the draft age or not and those who are be tween the ages of 21 and 31 and not engaged in essential occupations had better get another, job real quick. Failure to so means that they will be put in Class A-l and be sub ject to the call for service on July 22. Those who are past 31 have to go to work in Bogalusa, because no idlers, loafers or gamblers will be permitted to remain. Those who have large incomes and are not en gaged in some useful ocupation will also have to go to work, but there does not happen to be any of this class in Bogalusa. /■ The work or fight orders went in- to effect last Monday morning and the police department were awaiting official orders which are supposed to come through the Council of De- fense. Chief Magee stated Monday morning that he had received no such orders, but that he would bring the matter to the attention of that body Monday and that possibly every member of the police department would be engaged in enforcing the orders during the remainder of the week. -W.S.S. "Bumps the Bumps" To Be Tried Here It is believed that Bogalusa has found a way to enforce the "safety first" rules which will bring auto speeders and reckless drivers to a stop at railroad crossings and at dangerous street corners. The plan is one that is being worked out-suc cesefiuttK^ .Memo'Si and Frapjkliir ton. Just before you réâciîa r road crossing or a dangerous corner in the city the auto drivers are go ing to find a concrete "bump the bumps" which will compel any car to come to a slow rate of speed, especially after they have gone over it once. This "bump the bumps" will send the occupants of the car up to the top and give them a shak ing up which will remind one of the rough spots on the country roads. These "bump the bumps" are said to be a great success in every city where they have been tried and get better results than a flagman at rail road crossings. It is expected that the first ones will be placed at the Fourth street crossings and be. ready for operation within the next week. -W.S.S. Did Y ou Think Spies Were at Work? If you had any kind of an imagin ation, you perhaps thought the the German spies were getting in some good work in Bogalusa last Wednes day night. During the electrical storm which swept the city the lights werib out of commission and when the wind was at its highest the fire whistle blew and the engines made a run to the Great Southern plant. Every whistle in the city blew and continued for some time. Then all was quiet. A few minutes latter the whistles were blown again. Mean while the lights were out and there was a slight rain. The fire whistle j started again. By this time the calls a to is D. A. E. E. D. E. L. R. to the telephone station had slacked a . it was found that * i and it was found that in sounding j the first alarm the fire whistle had ; broke and was being fixed. Firemen at other plants did not know that the whistle was broke and continued . sounding the alarm. The signal j fgr the firgt fire wa<} for thc Great j coal chute where little ; damage was done . Early Thursday! moving there was another fire Rlchardaontown. -W.S.S.

POLICE JURY TO CALL NEW ROAD » ELECTION State and Federal Aid Can Not Be Secured Under Present Plans The special election called for August 27 to vote an 8 mill tax to run for a period of 25 years will likely be called off at the next meet ing of the police jury which will be held Friday owing to the fact that under the present plan the par ish could not get any assistance from, the federal or state government. Both state and federal aid is ex pected to amount to between $1500 and $2000 a mile and a bond elec tion must held instead of voting a special tax. The police jury will likely be asked to vote bonds to the amount of $500,000 instead of an 8 mill tax for 25 years which would amount to $1,500,000. In this manner any amount of the money desired could be secured at one time instead ef having a part of it coming in each, year. It has been pointed out that $100,000 of these bonds could be disposed of as needed and thereby save the tax payers considerable in terest and at the same time have enough money available to carry on a big road building program. To raise the half million would require only a 4 mill tax to run about tea years. limrq2b1nthe W.SJS.
