It is es timated that this number can be am putated from the payrolls without lowering efficiency. Others state that three times this number* or 300, 000, will be dismissed from railroad work during the next few months. Every man who got his job owing to government control is expected to go off the payrolls at an early date. Legion Banquet for Ex-Soldiers Success Magic City Post No. 1, The Amer can Legion, staged its first public function last Saturday night when the Lounge Room of the Y. W. C. A. building was parked to its cai with the boys who wore the khaki, seating themselves around the laden tables, facing a glowing fire in the great fireplace. ■ A great menu had been prepared— one to take the fighting Spirit out of the boys and lift their spirits to "" - • « ■■■ Trimt, the heights of good humor. __ „ with the boullion, quail on toast, can died yams, creamed carrots, apple and cneese salad, ice cream, cake and coffee, more could be asked to sat isfy a hungry fighting man and lull his mind into acquiescence to the bombardment of eloquence that must inevitably follow a great spread. Nothing was wanting to make the banquet a success. Patriotism rang from every word spoken, and even "American First" was suggested in the setting of the evening, from the bunting, the glowing of lights about the room to the coloring of the ice cream. ."America First" was further portrayed in the inadvertent charm of the maids and matrons who serval the boys at the table. As each Legionaire entered the great reception hall, where the first warm glow of welcome flickered in the fireplace, he was greeted by one of Bogalusa's popular women and boutonnieres of violets were placed and smiles exchanged. Thence on to the tables, where they faced the fine feast prepared under the direction of Mrs. L. F. Guerre, assisted by a large committees of ladies, and revelled in the artistics decorations arranged by Mrs. J. S. Manley and her commit tee. J. B. Lindsley assumed charge as chairman of the evening, announc tog that he was filling in for Jules Le w laa« hyv - praruww- javaBg mm , ta de the talking for both of them and Jules was to do the fighting for both of them. After a careful discussion of the war risk insurance policies by a present for that purpose, A. C. Good year, president of the Great South ern Lumber Company, delivered forceful address, telling the boys what they could put into the Ameri can Legion for the good of the na tion. In all, the evening met with the approval of all present. The decora tions were the finest ever seen in Bogalusa. of of a the the at in Bogalusa. ■o Hum Bug Circus Comes Saturday - Under the management of the sen ior class of the Bogalusa High School will be present "A Hum Bug Circus" at the Armory building, Saturday evening, February 21st, 1920, be ginning at 7:30 p. m.

A'" 1 1 ap in the go es to LOCAL LAWS FOR AUTOMOBILES NEEDED. „ Cars Should Come to Stop at Railroad Crossings, All Speeders Punished and Ordinance to Regulate Parking Passed. The number of automobiles in Bo galusa, tiie careless manner in which they are driven and how cars are parked has resulted in so much com ment that the time has arrived when the Commission Council should give auto drivers some laws to abide by, and then see that they are enforced. Speeding over the streets, cars driven by children, dashing across railroad tracks, are every-day occur rences. Taxpayers and citizens are asking' what will happen when we get paved streets. If autos race across the bridges at 40 miles an hour, make pedestrians jump out of their way now, then citizens will be safe in air planes only, after the streets art paved. In several cities an ordinances is in force and auto drivers are com iiolled to cbey the law, relative to railroad crossings. In fact, the state of Mississippi now has the same pro posed law la the Legislature, which may become « state-wide law, and t>.ac is to make cars come to a stop before crossing railroad tricks. If such a law was passed in this city, it would prevent quite a few. accidents each year. The manner in which Bogalusa auto owners park their cars when many attend any one certain place has reached the point where it re quires some law to make all cars park properly. In front of the Magic City theater any evening you will find cars stopped in any position regardless of how the party ahead has parked. How accidents have been avoided at this one place re main* a mystery. * The same thing jg true at a to has also any meeting where a large number of can are used. A simple rule would avoid all this, if lived up to. The number of can at the Magic City theater each night should re»-' suit ia the city or the management of the theater placing the ditch in front ©f this place of amusement in a condition that would permit of can being properly parked. colt! new ries, GIRL RESERVE PARTIES JOAN OF ARC CORPS The Jean of Arc Taci.y Party was certainly the "takiest' party that ever happened. From the moment the guests began to arrive until the last one left, that party vnS also a world of fun. Even the most demure misses were "fearfully and wonder fully arrayed." The prize, however, was given to Mary Hunt Plummer, although Lucille Bender, Mabel Burns and Lee Hood Cesario were also 'sights to behold." Daniel Wadsworth won the boy's prize. * Fun for the evening reached its height in.the tacky lAp year mock weddiftg, in which Lucille Bender figured is the powerful, capable groom and Jiira Plummer, decked in a flowing veil of uncertain ancestry, was the much-admired, tender and blushing'bride. Parson Glen Bon ney tied the knot. Scorning the mild conventionality of wedding rings, this modern pair symbolized their hopes for* future felicity and peaceful bliss by having ropes placed about their wedded rjecks. The happy nuptials were cele brated by a rare wedding supper, at which the brave guests sucked lem onade through sticks of peppermint Candy. Ice cream and cake came later, and the company departed in high spirits. „ READY FOR SERVICE CORPS The Ready-for-Service Colonial \ Party certainly did "out-colonial" j anything the colonists ever thought of.. Miss Sqrah Mullings, leader of, this corps, used her home for the festivities. There were more than twenty little girls present from the North Side school and all of them looked very charming in their colon- ' ial "get-up." ^ j George Washington and his child ish deeds were brought to life again and, from chopping down the pro verbial cherry tree to riding the wiki ju»d wooly colt, the time was spent in hilarious and nonsensical merriment. THOMAS SIMMONS WITHDRAWS FROM RACE I — Will Not be in "Run-Off' Agsimt Sheriff Bateman et Election on Next Tues day—Mr. Simmons Sick at His Home. Thomas Simmons has withdrawn from the race for the Democratic nomination for sheriff of Washington parish. The run-off between Sheriff Bateman and Mr. Simmons was to hâve been held next Tuesday. It is known that as early as a week ago that Mr. Simmons confided to intimate friends that his chances for winning the contest were gone, due to a series of circumstances, and the fact that he was nôt in good physical condition. For several days he has been confined to his bed. His with drawal from the race was announced Sunday and illness prevented him from making a signed statement. Mr. Simmons displayed excellent sortsmanahip in withdrawing from the contest, which will make him even stronger in the future. The withdrawal of Mr. Simmons has taken abput all interest from +he second primary to held next Tues day, as there is only one other con test, that for clerk of court between Arthur Hood of Franklinton and C. Mizell of Rio. DR. SANDERS LEAVES Dr. G. O. Sanders, who has been practising medicine at the Bogalusa Hospital as house-doctor for the pygt tendered his resignation last week and with his wife left for his former home in Amite. He plans to locate in Mississippi and do a general practice. His place as house-doctor has be «infilled by Dr. A. J. S, Hyde, also of Amite. **k them how George rode that REPORTED DYING , E. Jenkins of Sun ia re fcada a dying conditio», at f hospital. colt! They'l giggle—bat they'll never tell. Old colonial gingercake and brand new lemonadS, plus candied cher ries, found a welcome in twenty little ''original lunch baskets." COUNT-ON-US CORPS Talk about a flock oï children ! They were present at the Count-On Us Party. Fifteen boys and fifteen girls! Is it any wonder that good times were stirring? It was friend George again and "his stunts" that gave this bunch their excuse for a party. Did you notice those black smut-wrinkle^ on some of their faces? They "happened" because certain parties were too curious con cerning "how old was Georgie" when he chopped down papa's cherry tree? In celebration of riding the colt there was a tree-legged hobby-horse race for the boys, while the spectators bet with beans and cheered their throats dry. The "ring around the cherry tree" was lots of fun, but oh, it was hard to get one's foot fastened to a ram bling "root," whenever the music stopped, and thus secure a candy cherry After numerous games had been played and "eats" eaten, thé crowd scurried out to the back field and wound up the fun on the swings, see saws and merry-go-round. EXCELSIOR CORPS Did you hear that crowd a-snor ing? Hardly! Because that was one thing the Excelsior Corps did not have time to do when they enter tained their friends at a "slumber party" last Friday night. To start things off right, they hied them first to the ball games over at the Y. M. C. A. and lent their applause to the succès? of the evening. Secondly, they returned to the Y. W. C. A. and had a basketball game all their own. Sjfcants, gym games and tricks erowd ed one upon the other, including that age-old pastime'of trying to see who can put the most ice cream and cake out of sight until the mystic hour of midnight. Then the matter of "lay ing down to sleep" was punctilliously attended to,, with but little success, The friendly cock bad already begun to celebrate the coming dawn before the revelers finally settled into si ler.ee, and before forty , wis^s had been registered it wartime tP'get ap, right-foot-first, hnd teli Hbe World what a wonderful thing a slumber |party really is! a ATTEMPTS TO DEFEND THE NEGRO- UNIONS A short time since the Daily News | 1 eceived an anonymous communica tion from Bogalusa, La., attempting to defend the organization of negro labor unions in the South, and set ting forth a defense of the Timber Workers Union, composed of white and negro delegates, who posed for a group photograph over at Meridian last autumn. The communication was not print ed, but as a matter of curiosity, the Daily News started an investigation to ascertain the identity of its au thor, and finds that ha is a profes~ sional agitator and troublemaker at Bogalusa ; that he is also an ex-con vfet, having served three years in the federal penitentiary for embezzling postal funds; that he is a representa tive of the type o f me n who provoked the troubles "St Bbgsloia several months ago, and caused the patriotic citizens ef that cpmmunitv to organ ise a loyalty league and force the un desirables to leave the community. Judging from the fact that the au thor of our anonymous letter is still in Bogalusa, the Loyalty League did not complete its work. It is just this sort of men who are promoting the Bolshevist movement m the United States, causing trouble and dissention among workers and endeavoring to undermine the very foundations of our government.— Jackson Daily N* ws. —-d-o-— Daily ws. —-d-o-— Father and Son Banquet Tonight The annual Father and Son Ban quet will be given at the Y.

Bogalusa will get the best possible paved streets for the money, and it is not certain that Tarvia paving, which had been contemplated, will be used. At a meeting of the Com mission Council Saturday bids on the material were rejected and the coun cil decided to readvertise for mate rial and paving of various kinds, and has asked for bids for the construc tion of Bituminous Macadam Pene tration method and other types of permanent paving. Bids for this work will be opened on March 20, and will give every paving company an opportunity to bid on the work. The Barbour Asphalt Paving Co. sent a representative here last week and likely four or five other com panies will bid on the work. The Barbour people claim they paved Fifth avenue in New York city, the most traveled street in the United States, if not the entire world, and say the pavement remained in good condition under the enormous traffic for nineteen years, and then was re placed with their process. The Bar bour company maintains that with the proper kind of foundation and surface work, that if theoumade-?vl surface work the streets of Bogalusa paved with their process should need practically no| repaid* for about ten years. It is estimated that there will be between 75,000 and 1000,000 square yards of paving to be dime, which is considered a big contract, and as a result it is expected several bids will be made for the work. - ef of BUSINESS WOMEN TO GIVE Members and prospective members of the Business and Professional Women's Club don't forget to come to the Y. W. C. A. Tuesday evening at 8 o'clock, February 24, to attend the famous comedy, "To Tu," as few opportunities of seeing so great a play is offered the city of Bogalusa.

In spite of the very bad weather Tuesday night, February 17th, the Business and Professional Women's Club held their regular monthly edu cational meeting at the Y. W. C. A. A very interesting and helpful ar ticle was read by Miss Ernestine Wood, giving a little character sketch of Miss Henrietta F. Reid, who is secretary to the president of the Bush Terminal Company, New York City, and who is vice-president of all the subsidiary companies of the Bush Terminal Company. After the reading of this article there was a general discussion as to the different characteristic* of Mias Reid that might be of use to the club members in dividuaily and as business women. Miss Reid is a "big business" woman, and as such is a very inter esting study to women who are just beginning in the business world. êï MEETS GEN. PERSHING Percy W. Lindsley has the distinc tion of being the only citizen of Bo galusa who had the pleasure of meet ing General John J. Pershing on his visit to New Orleans this week.
