Surprise Party For Miss Sally Kent Phillips One of the most enjoyable parties of the summer season was the sur prise party given in honor of Miss Sallye Kent Phillips, the attractive young neice of the Misses Kent, Thursday night, by a number of the members of the younger set. The Kent home not proving large enough for the festivities, the young people adjourned to the Armory, where they would have more space.

Allen Cross, W. T. Lambright, Robt. Young, Leroy Moore, Robert Cross, Walter Miller, Robert Lee, Jimmie Hill, Claude Mitchell and Mr. Conn.

New Hardwood Mill For Richardsontown Richardsontown will be the site of another hardwood mill, if negotia tions which are now on between the White Wood Products Company and the Great Southern Lumber Company are concluded satisfactorily. As stated elsewhere in this issue, the main plant of the White Woods Products Company, including their mill, at Crothersville, Ind., was re cently destroyed by fire. The main plant has been making handles from hardwood, while the local plant is using only pine. In view of the fact that there is an abundance of hardwood here and that they can secure both pine and hardwood timber, and that it will be necessary to build a new plant, they have picked or. Bogalusa as the ideal location for the splendid conditions existing here and the almost inex haustible supply of raw materials. If they rebuild in Indiana, it will be only a few years until they will be forced to ship in their raw mate rial. Mayor Sullivan is hope of an early favorable decision by the directors of both the Great Southern Lumber Company and the White Wood Prod ucts Company. o whole it seems ery acceptable. Yale Professor Lauds Bogalusa Forestry Work YALE UNIVERSITY School of Forestry New Haven, Conn., Aug. 1G, 1922. Mr. J. K. Johnson, Great Southern Lumber Company, Bogalusa, La. My Dear Mr. Johnson:— I want to thank you most sincerely for your good letter of August 10, with the data secured by Mr. Wy man and Mr. Sonderegger, copies of which you were kind enough to send me. You can speak specifically of the relative success of your direct seeding and planting of wild stock. I think, on the whole, you are to be congratulated on the relative degree of success attained both by direct seedng and by planting wild stock to date. I will, however, be surprised if there isn't further losses in the planted stock' before the end of the first year. I still think that your work in the South, the chief reliance must be placed on getting as much regeneration as possible from natural seeding and supplementing this by artificial seeding, rather than plant ing. Plants confined largely to failed places result from natural regenera tion and seeding. I was particularly interested in the results obtained in your nursery this spring. On the hope to be able to see its progress some time late this fall. I feel that at Bogalusa you are initiating a great undertaking, which in many ways is one of the most conspicuous pieces of private forestry work in America. It must succeed! Most sincerely vours., J, W. TOUMEY. Virgil Underwood Sold To Memohis Of Southern But! When Virgil Underwood entered professional baseball his friends pre dicted a great future for him little did they realize that successi would come to him so quickly. Undy.® has been playing great ball this sea-!. son and when Clarksdale journeyed to Memphis for an exhibition game, they simply trotted Undy into the hearts of Memphis baseball fans, to sav nothing of the ba/eball officials. »nd bufore the game was over, Virgil was the property of Memphis. Bogalusa has just cause to be proud of her athlete, for Virgil is a true Bogalusa product, having spent his early days in school here and get ting the whole of his athletic train ing in Bogalusa. Virgil will return t<? Bogalusa for the winter and his many friends will welcome him home and give him a great send-off next spring when he goes to represent Bogalusa in the great American sport of baseball. Radio Colub To Hold Meet Tonight a Week The first regular meeting of the Bogalusa Radio Club will be held on Thursday evening, August 31, at 7:30 at "the Y. M. C. A.

LITTLE MISS CELEBRATES THIRTEENTH BIRTHDAY Aline Simmons, daughter of Mr. and Mrs Dewitt Simmons of Superior avenue, entertained twenty girls and bovs on last Friday evening, frojn 7:30 to 10 o'clock, at the celebration of her thirteenth birthday. The hours passed swiftly for they were lost in the fun of playing games that pleased the fancy of every one, as did each gift presented to Aline seemed to please her, for there were many useful ones. Mrs. Simmons added much to the evening by her pleasant manner of entertaining. Ice cream, cake and lemonade were served. CARD OF THANKS We desire lu ppres3 our heartefit thanks to our friends and neighbors who assisted us during the illness of cur mother and wife, and comforted u? during our hours of bereavement. We desire to especially thank Mrs. Williams and Miss Malley. S. E. FELTS AND CHILDREN. Bonus Will Bring New Industry Here Bogalusa has an opportunity of se curing another big industry, one which would give employment to be tween two and three hundred men and women, is the announcement made by Mayor Sullivan. Frank Brewer, treasurer and gen eral manager of the E-Z Opener Bag Company, with general offices at De catur, 111., and R. E. Hartman, local manager of their plant at Braithwait, La., were in Bogalusa last week for a conference with Mayor Sullivan. The company has plants at Decatur and Taylorville, 111.; Orange, Tex.; Philadelphia, Pa., and at Braithwait, La., a suburb of New Orleans. The Bogalqsa Paper Company has been supplying the New Orleans plant with pulp since their pulp mill was destroyed by fire last winter. The fact that the Bogalusa Paper " Company can supply another plant with sufficient pulp, and that the old plant of the Louisiana Fibre Board could be used for the operation of such a concern, makes this city a most attractive one for new indus try. Mr. Brewer is a believer in ac tual demonstration thht the citizens of a community will show a spirit of co-operation, and in his experience he has found that when a city gives a bonus for the location of an indus try, that their co-operation is always better. While he did not state the amount he would expect in the event he located here, it is believed that it would be between $15,000 and $25, 000 . Mr. Sullivan will likely call a meeting of the Chamber of Com merce at an early date and submit the proposition to that body. R. H. Laftman, of the Bogalusa Paper Company, state that the E-Z Opener Bag Company have built up a national reputation, and all of their plants are modern. If the plant lo cates here, they will make kraft pa per as well as bags, and the bag mak ing department will give employ ment to a hundred or more persons and much of the labor can be w omen . A sample of the wrapping paper made from Bogalusa pulp was shown here last week, which proved that Bo galusa pulp will make a splendid wrapping paper. The plant here woqla be able to consume about forty tons of pulp per day, which is the amount of surplus produced at the Bogalusa Paper Company plant. * If Bo jalusa can secure the new in- dustry, it will be in line with the policy announced by Mayor Sullivan two years ago of making Bogalusa a paper-making / city. - « -- OFFICIAL SCHOOL OPENING NOTICE Pupils of the High School grades will report to the High School build ing for enrollment as follows: Eighth and Tenth grades, Friday, September 1st.
