Sheats of At lanta, Ga., which took place Sunday, March 9, 1:30 p. m., at the home of the bride's sister, Mrs. C. E. Gill. Only relatives and a few close friends were among the guests at the ceremony. The home was very attractively decorated in ferns and ivy. Mrs. C. E. Gill rendered very ten derly, "I Love You Truly," and Men delssohn's Wedding March was played as the bride entered.. Mrs. L. Gremilhon, accompanied by Miss Inez Blanchard, played "Be cause," from Joycelyn, during the ceremony. The bride was given away by her mother, Mrs. McDonald, and her only attendant was her sister, Miss Lee McDonald. Master Clave Gill was ring-bearer.

Test Case on Bonds To Be Tried The question of which of the twoj plans adopted by the police jury in selling the half a million dollars ! worth of good roads bonds is accord- ' 'ing to Blackstone will have a final j decision, it is hoped, within the next' ninety days. The case was docketed ; for the District Court yesterday and Judge Carter promised a quick de cision. pealed The case will then be to the Supreme Court. now develops that it is just a quo ! tion of whether the bonds are to be ! sold as a road district or as parish | bonds, one of the two, however, will: stand and will not require another election, but, of course, will delay the starting of the work. Officials have been promised ac tion in the courts at the earliest pos sible time. At the regular meeting of the po lice jury, held last Friday, nothing of importance canle before the meet ing, much routine* was disposed of, however.

The committee assures the public that the best of order will prevail. Tickets are selling at $1 and if you have not secured one, you can pay your admission at the door.

Mrs. Mills joined him Saturday and accompanied him home. -o- BUYS ART STUDIO L. A.

BASKETBALL FRIDAY Two fast and interesting games of basketball in the Industrial League are slated for Friday night when the Invincibles hit the hard-working N. O. G. N. and Hi School tackles the G. S. L. Co. G. S. L. has not been playing up to usual form, but they are well started now and will be con- tenders for first places. Games will start at 8:15 sharp. -o--— GOV. SANDERS HOME Governor Sanders arrived Tuesday and left the same afternoon for a few days' trip over the district. He expects to arrive home Monday, to remain for several months. He will be accompanied by Mrs. Sanders, who is visiting her parents in New Or- leans. To Discontinue Service March 15 The Pearl River or St. Tammany branch of the N. O. G. N., operating from Pearl River to the station of St. Tammany, is to be discontinued Saturday. The operation of trains on this line has been at a great loss to the company and the line serves very few people. Efforts to have it discontinued before were made, but the railroad commission would not grant their approval. One day last week it cost the line over seven dol lars to earn a ten-cent fare and on a recent occasion it is stated that it cost over $17 to deliver a shipment of freight on which the charges were forty-odd cents. It is rumored that an injunction will be served Friday against the discontinuance of trains. The result of the action will be awaited with much intreest. NO EARLY CROP OF IRISH SPUDS "The recent heavy rains have made it impossible for the farmers of this section to raise an early crop of Irish potatoes and is good fortune to the farmers, if they just knew it," said a well known citizen of Bogalusa Saturday. "Year after year farm ers have been losing money on the early crop and each year continue to try and make a crop successful to offset the previous bad ones, but they invariably lose money. This year they have been unable to plant on account of the rains, and in a few days the regular crop of potatoes can be planted and will yield good re turns," he continued. 10,000 Tons Old * Clothing Needed most comprehensive «vef undertaken will be conducted by' American Red Cross during the week of March 24-31, when the American people will be asked to do nate ten thousand tons of cast-off apparel to the helpless refugees in Allied countries. The need of cloth ing in many lands is one of the most serious reconstructions problems, but it is expected that a long step to ward solving it will be taken when the thousands of Red Cross chapters begin their collection of discarded garments. Every kind of garment for all ages and both sexes, except such as ob viously could not help refugees, is to be accepted. Since the clothes will be subjected .to the hardest kind of wear, only garments of strong and durable material should be given. They need not, however, be in per fect condition, for there are thou sands of destitute women in the re covered territory eager to earn a small livelihood by repairing the clothing that will be sent to the needy. In addition to the second hand garments there will be accepted piece goods, light, warm canton flan nel and other fabrics from which to make clothes for new-born babies, sheetings and blankets and even scrap leather, which is needed for repairing shoes. Woolen goods of any kind, soft hats and caps for all ages, and sweaters of any kind or size will be welcomed, while men's shirts and pajamas that are not long er serviceable as such, can be turned into children's garments. If you have anything to contribute, call up Mrs. Guerre at the local Red Cross Chapter. W. E. BARNES DEAD W. E. Barnes, aged about 38 years, residing in the vicinity of Columbia street, died of spinal meningitis Sat- urday and the funeral was held the same day. No o&er cases of the dis- ease have been reported in Bogalusa. IMPROVING STREETS The streets of Bogalusa are being placed in good condition again. The unusually heavy rains of the past few months not only did great damage to them, but made it impossible to work them to any advantage. -o SPEED UP CLOCKS Don't forget to speed up your clock an hour on the evening of Sun day, March 30. Failure to do so will put you to work one hour late, as the daylight saving law goes into effect again this year. The Enterprise—clean, wholesome paper—should be in every home. BODY OF LESLIE FORBES RECOVERED The body of Leslie Forbes, the 18 year-old youth who lost his life a week ago last Tuesday when he, with two companions, was wading the backwater following the overturning of their boat in Pearl River, was re covered Thursday and was found within a few feet of where he went down. The remains were prepared for burial and laid to rest last Friday. Go Gabble Party at Y. W. Saturday The ladies, as well as the little folks, are looking forward to the big "Go -Gabble, Gobble, Gabble Party" which will be held at the Y. W. C. A. Saturday. One can imagine that it is going to be some party from the name which has been given it and Mrs. Betty Sullivan-Frith promises that you can attend, Apecting it to be "some party."
