Gerard and told him that after the war was end ed he would stand no nonsense from the United States, he did not realize that the patience of Americans would soon reach the breaking point. The whole series of incidents, the plot and intrigue, the broken prom ises, the deliberate disregard of all rights of a friendly nation in the in sane desire to rule the world is clear ly shown in the wonderfully vivid motion picture reproduction of Mr. Gerard's book, "My Four Years In Germany." Here, you see unrolled before you the whole page of history from the Zabern incident to the gathering of the American army over there. Every American should see this picture so that he can better under stand why America must stand united against this common foe. This picture will be shown at the Magic City Theater on September 12.

O. G. N. shops here and who was arrested several days ago in Bogalusa for trying to incite negro laborers and when he was arraigned he was given his preference of leav ing the city on the next train or getting the full penalty of the law. Peter left Bogalusa and judging from press reports, has met with still worse fate, for he went to New Orleans, where he secured employment at shipyard No. 12 of the Foundation. Company.
