Miss Beatrice Hennick, for a num
ber of years employed at the Boga

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
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.
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. . *

Bogalusa boys who has been away

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.

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.
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.
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

the games.
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
"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

<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.
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,
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
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

improvement could appear and state
their' objections None appeared at

clerk was instructed to advertise for
Breland to Defend

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
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

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.

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.
