The choir at the First Methodist Church is« arranging some special music for the Sunday services and a cordial invitation is extended the public to hear Dr. Ellis. Bogalusa is indeed fortunate in having an ' opportunity to hear such a noted speaker and it is needless to 'state the First Methodist Church will be taxed to capacity at both services, -o RECEPTION TENDERED SENATOR RANSDELL _ United States Senator Joseph E. 'Ransdell was given a reception on the occasion of his visit to Bogalusa this week which should convince him of his genuine popularity in this sec tion. Daniel Morgan headed a local, committee which went to New Or Jeans in the private car "'Bogalusa" and accompanied Senator Ransdell to this city. On his arrival here a hun dred or more prominent citizens called on him at the Pine Tree Inn.' During his stay in Bogalusa he was entertained by Mayor and Mrs. W. H.

Carruth, judge of the Twenty-first Judicial District, of New Roads, La., was among the prom inent visitors to Bogalusa for the Fourth. Judge Carruth is a candidate for associate justice of the Supreme Court of this stae. He has many warm friends in Bogalusa who pre- dict he will be an easy winner in the field of four. He is well qualified for the honor, having spent 25 years in active practice' of law and four years on the bench. ------- —o-— Laftman Arrives Home > After 2 Months' Absence R. H.

Mr. Laftman re ports he secured some new ideas while Jon the trip, but that during his ab sence he did not see any city that looked half so good to him as Bo galusa. - 0 - Coca-Cola Team Won Two Games Last Week By defeatoing Franklinton Friday afternoon by a score of 11 to 1, and Vamado Sunday afternopn, by a score of 6 to 9, the Coca-Cola team chalked up a total of twelve victories out of fifteen games played this sea son. Blackwell pitched great ball against Franklinton, and Marx pitched a fine game against Vamado. Blackwell and Horner hit Reese of Franklinton for two-baggers. Sunday afternoon the Coca-Colas knocked Gann of Varnado out in the fifth inning. Marx and Horner scoring two-baggers and all the team hitting him hard. The Franklinton boys say never h«t one to the outfield if you want to land safe at first, for Teddy, Tim and Red are there. Franklinton's second baseman tried to kill Joe Bailey with a hot one, but couldn't hurt the third sacker. They also tried our shortstop out, but found out that it was useless to hit to Williams. . ( You couldn't hear the rooters for the Coca-Cola catcher—guess every one knows who he was Mr. Mills was on the job with his hat off. If the Bogalusa team needs a good storekeeper, we will recom ]mend L. R. Mills or Eli Caiftrell. Ernest Gibson held the bench to a (finish. -0 ——'believed Blanchard'* Jazz Hound* To Play At Big Resort - Claud Blanchard, manager of 'Blanchard's Jazz Hounds, a musical [organization/ that has attracted at-' [tention wherever they have played, ha 3 closed a contract to play every [Sunday at the big dancing P avili °n recently completed at Mandeville. The fact that Bogalusa will supply the music will attract a large number from this city to the Lake Pontchar irom c.i-y *_________ train resort. The roads are ideal, sea food dinners can always be secured;of and it is believed Bogalusans will divide their week-ends between the Gulf Coast and Mandeville. _ 0 _ SAIL FOR EUROPE Mr. and Mrs. Fritz Salmen, parents of Mr« W. H. Sullivan, left Monday !for an extended tour of Europe. 150 Railroad Men On Strike Here Between 150 and 175 employes of the N. O. G. N. shops were called out in the nation-wide strike which went into effect at 10 o'clock Saturday. As The Enterprise went to press yes terday afternoon no decision had been announced as to what action will be taken. General Manager Ferris and other officials of the com pany were in conference. The situation here is a peculiar one, as the employes of the local railroad shops, embracing the six crafts, have been working for less ____ _______ money than the employes on other iroads are striking for. It is said, for example, the machinists here are re ceiving 60 cents per hour, while the Labor Board has asked them on other lines to work for 70 cents an hour. The local employes were not anx ious for a strike and after receiving the order from national headquarters to walk out on Saturday they sent several telegrams explaining the local ÿ*®»« 0 » and a f^ d for further or ders. The result was thev were or dered to comply with the original or der to walk out Saturday at 10 a. m. I T h « re has been no trouble whatso £ ver here and the tram service has been maintained on schedule time, f Several lines have announced they woldd organize crews to replace those 011 stn £e; some railroads have an uounced they will call in all contract , r ?P ai ^ , 'f or ^ wbl ch has been done out side their shops. This would lead one , to beheve the strike will be settled | W1 th°ut great loss of time. urmnnur ta Dr OIL» W Lx/Dlliu 1U OC, HELD NEXT SUNDAY Invitations have been issued to a wedding of more than ordinary inter est which will be solemnized on next Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock when Jacob Bienn, associated in business with his brother D.

The partvmet at the little Club house and elected Miss Beatrice Mason as the delegate from the Bogalusa Club to attend the National Convention of the Business and Professional Wom en's Clubs to be held at Chattanooga ^ b i oîî July* 13.

"OL' SWIMMIN' HOLE" MOST POPULAR SPOT Over three hundred people,, men, women and children, visited the swimming pool in Bogue Lusa creek, back of Little Buffalo, Sunday, and there is nothing in the city which is giving the citzenship as much genuine pleasure as this swimming pool af forded by nature. The suggestion made by The En terprise last week that the city com plete the road to the creek, take out some of the snags in the cfeek, make the place one in which the kiddies may play and erect two small but in expensive buildings for the changing of clothing, has ntet with much favor able comment. "Why I know a number of em ployes who work in the mill with me,' r said one man who was sitting on the soon!bank watching his several jchildren 1 p ] a y fh the water, "who would be will ing to give a dollar to see it improved. j Unless you have visited this swim m i n g hole you cannot appreciate what an ideal spot nature has given the city. Within a few feet of the banks there is abundant shade and the ground could be easily placed in con dition for an ideal picnic ground. J There is also a fine sand bar, and by [expending a few hundred dollars it is Bogalusa could have a beach I that would corapare with some of the t,,c of ' he Unl *' ! Nature has provided spots not half so beautiful or convenient which have been taken over by individuals ana made j n to amusement parks which bave proven good moneymakers. j __ 0 — - ■ _ MEL nNS SHIPMENTS OF MELONS NOW INCREASING DAILY The past few days has brought a marked improvement in the shipment melons from this section, and by the end of the present week it is be lieved the mellons will ripn as fast as they can be loaded. j Some extra fine watermelons are being produced in this section and it is predicted that with favorable .weather next year the crop will be much earlier and more profitable.
