They are going to be kept up, as well as the goats. Several years ago an ordinance was passed to keep hogs and goats off the streets. Since that time there has a been a continual stream of protests to the city offi cials that the ordinance was not be ing enforced. Hogs have been roam ing the streets was as much freedom and liberty as the children. No one yet has been able to see that the ordinance was enforced. Tuesday night a prominent- merchant stated that garden-making time was here and that unless the officials would give protection from the hogs and goats that many people would not make a garden, just for the benefit of . the hogs and goats. • Commissioner of Safety and Health Lindsley announced that his department would see that the goats and hogs were picked up as fast as they appeared on the streets and he requests that in the event you do not get service in this department that he would appreciate you* calling him personally. - 4-m. t. jm. -o Bogalusa Woman Dies in Kansas Citv - « ^ * Miss Beatrice Hennick, for a num ber of years employed at the Boga lusa Stores and one of Bogalusa'? most estimable young ladies, who left here last July to ip&ke an ex tended visit with her sister in Kansas City, was a pneumonia victim, the end having come last Monday. The remains arrived in Bogalusa Tuesday evening and the funeral services were conducted Wednesday, burial being in the Bogalusa Ceme tery. The deceased was about 22 years old and was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Hennick, resid ing at 606 Avenue D. The funeral was an exceedingly sad one and a large number of friends attended the service. JOHNSON GOES TO LOOK UP DUTIES Jess Johnson, who last week was appointed federal prohibition direc tor of the state of Louisiana, left Saturday afternoon for Washington, where he goes to get all details of his work. He is expected to return the latter part of this week and the first of next week will open his office in New Orleans. As census enumerator of this con gressional district, it is expected the job will he completed by the time he returns. It has been announced that the new job of Mr. Johnson will pay about $5000 a year and traveling ex penses. He will have several field men under him who will run down the violators of the prohibition law, but just how many could not be learned. It will require a fairly large force to get New Orleans un der control, it is believed, and possi bly one man will be appointed for each parish in the state. On Mr. Johnson's return here the duties and assistance to be given him, as well as the time he will be in of fice, will likely be announced. VERY FEW CASES OF FLU DE VELO PED HERE The influenza situât' -n in Boga lusa remains about the same as last week. A few new cases have devel oped, while others who were confined to their homes are now out, and phy sicians announce that there are about the same number of cases this week as last, which is considered very fa vorabl« to the city. The damp and disagreeable weather of last week was expected to develop a large nura her of new eases, and with fair weather promised for the remainder of this week all are hopeful that no dew cases will develop. . * F1DELAS CLASS ENTERTAINED Last Thu; »day evening the Fidelas Clan of the Find Baptist Church was delightfully entertained by their teacher, Mrs. S. G. Stringer. Promptly at 7:30 the class met in their class-room, and after a short business meeting games and delicious eats were enjoyed. Those present were: Mrs. T. W. Tatkington, Misses Hester Knight, Ina Mixell, Katie Bender, Blanche Johnson, Huberts Bailey, Ethel sHart, Allie Lee May, Emma and Eva Williams, Jessie Pierce, Amanda and Grace .Gayer. - O ... 1 Clyde Moore, one of the popular Bogalusa boys who has been away for several months, spent last week about his old haunts. a of a a ful on of The S. the GOODYEAR BECOMES PRESIDENT OF GREAT SOUTHERN LUMBER CO. Mr. Cooke Will Be Chairman of the Board of Directors— New President Coming to Bogalusa for an Extended Vbit; Is Well Known to Many Citizens; Has Been Vice-President of Three Bogalusa Companies Since 1912—No Other Changes in Officials. Walter P. Cooke, who has been president of the Great Southern Lumber Company and the New Or leans Great Northern Railroad Com pany for five years, and the presi dent of the Eogaluaa Paper Company since its organization, has had a very great honor conferred upon him by the financiers of the city in which he resides, Buffalo, N. Y. About six weeks ago Mr. George F. Rand, 'chairman of the board of directors of the Marine Trust Com pany, was killed in an airplane'acci dent in England. The Marine Trust Company is the largest hank in the state of New York, outside of the city of New York. It has a board of directors of twenty-four, and Mr. Cooke wa? the animons choice of the board to fill the position made by 'be death of Mr. Rand. The assets of the bank are about one hundred million dollars, and Mr. Cooke felt «hat he could not give as much time and attention to the de tails of the Great Southern Lumber Company, the New Orleans "Great erthern Railroad Company and the Eogalusa Paper Company as they de served, neither did he want his asso ciates and the men who have worlced with him in making these companies successful, feel that he was giving up his connection with them. The directors of these three com panies made Mr. Cooke chairman of the board of directors of e,ach com pany and he will act in a general supervising way over the affairs of the companies. Mr. Cooke is so much interested in the City of Bogalusa and its people that he said had things been c wise amuïgad, he would feel like giv ing up his position with the Marine Trust Company, as he didn't want to separate himself from the people of Bogalusa and their interests. He ex pects to visit. Bogalusa about the middle of February and will be here several days. A. C. Goodyear, who has been Have You Sent Check to M. Marx If you have not sent your check to M. Marx, treasurer of the Jewish Relief Committee, do so at once, as several hundred dollars have been alloted to Bogalusa to raise m this drive. It is understood that no one will canvass the city in behalf of the drive as everyone who will give will ingly will do so without being solic ited. A number of firms have mailed their checks to Mr. Marx and a large number are yet expected. Think of 800,000 children who have not had a full meal in five year, who know of no home, no father or mother, who when sick most wander about. Sup pose that just one of these 800,000 was your little darling, suffering from hunger day after day. Think of those hours, days, weeks, months and even years of suffering. Surely you will not let an opportunity like this go by without digging deep into your pockets. You can possibly save a life for $10—that amount will keep a child for a month. There is no need of thinking it over, just grab that check book and send it in right now to Mr. Marx. HI-Y CLUB PARTY The Hi-Y Club was hfcst to the High School girls in a most delight ful party at the Y. M. C. A. building on Saturday night. Interesting games had been arranged and plenty of chocolate and cake Was on hand and the girls were impressed that the boys are good entertainers and the future mothers-in-law of Bogalusa girls are good cooks. MRS. BELTON ENTERTAINS Sirs. E. R. Belton entertained the members of her bridge club Tuesday afternoon at her home on Avenue B. The first prize was won by Mrs. W. S. Hanley, while the second was awarded to Mrs. Hutchison. A deli cious salad course was served after the games. L. of in of « ing for of at day C. Miss a by of of of as elected president of the three com panies, ia the eldest son of the late C. W. Goodyear, who was one of the founders of the Great Southern Lum ber Company and the New Orleans Great Northern Railroad Company. Mr. Goodyear has been actively en gaged in the hemlock lumber busi ness in the North and, up to the year 1912, was very active in the interests that centered around the City of Bogalusa. Since 1912 he has been one of the active vice-presidents of all the Bogalusa companies. All of the men who have been in Hie employ of the companies some years are well acquainted with him and they are all delighted to have him president. Mr. Goodyear may depend on having the hearty co-oper ation of all the officers and employes of the companies, as well as all of the citizens of Bogalusa. He has just re turned from overseas service, where he was a colonel of artillery. After the signing of the armistice Mr. Goodyear was made one of Mr. Hoov er's principal aides in Europe, hav ing charge of* the distribution of coal in all the Central European countries. In connection with his active work under Mr. Hoover's de partment in Washington, there is a picture of Mr. Goodyear in the Sat urday Evening Post of January 31, in connection with a long article cov ering Mr. Hoover's activities abroad. If any of our readers haven't the pleasure of knowing him and want to see his picture, it can be found in that magazine. Mr. Goodyear will arrive in Boga lusa the last of this week for quite an extended visit. We want to take this opportunity of welcoming hhnj Again to the City of Bogalusa and wè hope that under his direction the companies will be as prosperous as they have in the past and the many plans that have been made in a ten tative way for bringing other indus tries to Bogalusa will be carried out. There are no changes in any of the other officers of the companies. Build Homes to Fit Lumber Lengths That architects could make the building of homes far less expensive than the present rate is the belief of L. R. Putnam, director of advertising for tbe Southern Pine Association, who returned Saturday from a series of retail lumber dealers' conventions in the East, North and Middle West. "This association is endeavoring to educate architects in the standard of grading pine," Mr. Putnam said. "Lack of attention paid the lengths and grades of this important home building lumber costs the prospective builder needless money. If rooms were made of a size to conform with the lengths cut at the mill, there would-be no wastage of lumber. Wastage of lumber is dangerous at this time, when the natural resources of the timberlands are being reduced constantly. "Building in the East is nothing short of marvelous. In Detroit homes are being bnilt at a greater rate than ever before, and at Flint, Mich., there are acres filled with new houses and homes under con- struction. In Hartford, Conn., the citizens have formed a company with « capital of $2,000,006, which is be- ing used for the erection of homes for factory employes, and are sold on moderate terms. In Oklahoma, there have been more than 2555 homes bnilt since May. In Kansas City, thousands of new homes are being erected." -o —..... ... ..... - ENTERTAIN AT CARDS Mesdames L. F. Guerre and J- B. Manley entertained / large number of ladies at bridge and five hundred at the Pine Tree Din on last Satur day afternoon. The parlors looked lovely with cat flowers and ferns. Beautiful prizes were won by Mrs. C. S. Mos^ Mrs. J. H. Slaughter, Miss A. D .Winters and Miss Lela Kent and Mrs. W. S. Hanley. De licious refreshments were served fol lowing the games and Hie event was a most enjoyable one. of to of can has a recent primary proves his popu larity and ability to represent this <iistrict wIien comes to lawmaking. PLENTY OF FUN OVER <150.0 0 SCHO OL BILL Should any money of the school fund be expended for athletics? Commissioner of Finance E. R. Cassidy thinks the school finances should not be used for such purposes, and when a bill was paid last fall for a trip to Bay St. Louis he registered his objection. At the meeting of the Commission Council Tuesday night another bill for $150.23 was pre sented. Mr. Cassidy objected to the paying of the bill. Commissioner of Education Starns thought that athletics should be part of the school work. A warm discus sion followed. "Childless men like you and my self can't appreciate the necessity and good of such work," said Com missioner of Safety Lindsley to Com missioner Cassidy. The Mayor wink ed, the spectators laughed. The dis cussion continued and City Attorney Talley took a swat at the claim. Any way, it was an enjoyable argument. Finally Mr. Lindsley stated that he was of the opinion that a certain amount of the school fund shbuld be budgeted for athletics and that a few hundred dollars would do much good. That did not pay the bilL It was fin ally decided to pay the claim out of the city entertainment fund, and ali sides won the fight. ...... ^ Who WiU Seek Seat in Congress The announcement that Governor J. Y. Sanders has entered the sena toriai race will open a field for as pirants to a seat in Congress and "al ready speculation has begun as to whom will succeed to the place he will make vacant. State Senator Delos R. Johnson of Franklinton is of congressional caliber and has a record that will make him one of the leading features in the contest The fact that he was nominated for the state senate without opposition in Amos L. Ponder of Amite and Harvey Ellis of Covington are also among those mentioned. The nomi nation will be made at the September primary at the 3ame time the sen atorial and judicial race will be made. INCOME TAX NEWS YOU WANT TO KNOW In order to clear away misunder standings as to what constitutes de pendency, in connection with the ad ditional exemption granted income taxpayers, Colector of Internal Reve nue Rufus W. Fontenot today gave out the following statement: "For 1919 a taxpayer may be al lowed a credit of $200 for each per son for whom he is the chief sup port. But it must be remembered that he can claim this additional ex emption only with respect to chil dren 17 years of age or younger and persons mentally defective, cripples, and persons old enough to be, with out question, physically incapacitated for self support. If the taxpayer contributes to the support of some relative or other person who is over 17 years of age, in fair health and still active, he can not be allowed the additional $200, even if he is furnishing the chief sup port. - The very different requirements of the two exemptions ("head of a family" additional $1000; depend ent" additional $200), must not be confused. To be the "head of a fam ily" the person whom he supports must be a close relative, must live with him, and he must be such rela tive's sole support. To be entitled to exemption for "dependent," the person whom he supports does not have to be a relative, hut can be any child or -any cripple or defective; the child er incapacitated adult may live anywhere; and it is necessary that he furnish only more than half of the support. The chief difference. is that for "head of a family" the restriction is to close relatives, Hie evident object of which is to promote the home; for "dependent" Hie restriction is to chil dren under 18 years of age, or per sons mentally or physically defec tive, the object of which is to recog nize material assistance given to those who cannot help themselves. A son, who has left home, but who still sends to his mother more than half of her support with enough reg ularity that she may depend upon it, can be allowed the additional $200; provided, however, that the mother has become sufficiently aged to be, a to an of he Four Fires Dumg the Past Week The Bogalusa Fire Department justified its existence last week by making four good runs, but in each instance the fires were beyond con trol, or the alarm was false. Where there was a blaze it was held to one place and no spreading was allowed. The most serious fire was on Wed nesday, when the store and market owned by Bob Canon in Jewtown was completely destroyed with all its contents. Just how the fire started is unknown. The building waa valued «t $1500 and the contents at $1500, making the $3000 loss com plete. Bote tee building and con tents were covered by insurance. A four-room house, belonging to E. J. Dreyfus and located in Jew town, was destroyed with all its con tents. . The family occuping tee place were away at the time and Hie fire evidently started from within the building and was so far advanced when the alarm sounded that noth ing could be saved. Mr. Fitch and family, newcomers to Bogalusa, lived in the house. A four-room house 'located., ou Long avenue, in Riehardsontown, was burned to the ground Sunday night. It was the property of M. R. Dorsey and was unoccupied. The fourth alarm came from Richardson town also. A colored woman over done the matter of starting a fire in a fireplace by the use of coal oil, and the blaze ran so high from the chim ney that a neighbor sounded the alarm. No damage was done and the fire boys did hot even connect the hose. Pleasant Hill Will Get Concrete Walks A large part of the Pleasant Hill section is to have concrete walks and work is expected to be well under way by the middle of March. Bids were ordered advertised at a meeting of the Coimmssfow Council held last Tuesday evening. Ä . A petition was presented at a meeting the first of the year pray ing that the city place concrete walks in that section of the city, but no action was taken at that time in or der that any who .were opposed to the. improvement could appear and state their' objections None appeared at the meeting Tuesday nigfaf and the clerk was instructed to advertise for bids. Breland to Defend Southern Tide Atlee Breland, the Magic City South's champion runner, will defend his title in the seven-mile Carnival race in New Orleans on Saturday, February 14. The Bogalusa boy cap tured the title lust year from a large field of entries and holds the South ern record for the distence by several seconds. Now that Breland is in better shape than when just discharged from service, no doubt Bogalusa can claim a new Southern record through the ability of this lad. There will be lots of competition this year and for sure it will t*1r» a speedy runner to win. Chicago Î1L, will be represented by a good man; there will be one from some place in Canada, but just like the magic of Bogalusa, Brgland will step to the front and take first honors, to be sure. Leroy Moore and Louis Gayer are two others competing from Bogalusa and will no doubt make good. TKla being a handicap race, they ought to have no trouble taking the han dicap medal, while the champion gate the time cup. without doubt physically incapaci tated for self support. Otherwise, Hie amount contributed must be con sidered as a gift, not deductible aa an expense and not entitling him to the additional exemption, regardless of the amount. A father may claim the exemption for every child under 18 yean of age, but if one of his children re vives from some estate, or other wise, sufficient distributed income to provide for the expense of his sup port in the station of life in which he is placed, the father cannot claim the exemption with respect to that child, for, although the chil<$ is le gally dependent upon him, he is, in fact, financially independent.
