Her gowns are designed especially for her productions and quite frequently thia favorite of the silver screen sets the style for Dame Fashion. But dress Is not the only asset Miss Griffith possesses ; her facial expression Is in a class by itself. There Is not an emotion, shade or degree of feeling that she cannot express with Ifer features. "The Climbers," "The Tower of Jewels." "Human Collateral" and "Deadline at Eleven" give an idea of her versatility. These features also show Miss Griffith in some of her latest zowns. ! i J ! 1 j j ' ! ; i ' THE EUNICE HIGH CLOSES SEASON After Two Years Absence from Athletic Program, Game is Resumed With Success Special Correspondence.

Basketball had been dropped from the regular athletic program of the school during the past two years and this year it was taken up again. The coaches, Principal J. B. Aycock, Mr. Gordon Brunson and Mrs. Red dell, deserve a great deal of credit for having organized the team fhat so well represented Eunice "Hi" in the various games played. Prospect for a winning team next year are very bright, for by gradua tion only the services of Captain Ar thur Hammers will be lost.

CARSON RETURNS FROM FORD SCHOOL Opelousas Mechanic Chosen from Louisiana Men for Spe cial Course at Detroit Henry Carson, foreman at the Bor leon garage, local representatives of the Ford Motor company, was the Louisiana Ford mechanic to be chosen to attend a five week's special school course in the factory at Detroit. He left here the beginning of iNfarch and remained in Detroit over five weeks. He was the fifth from Louisiana to be brought to Detroit by the Ford Motor company since the school opened a few years ago. Mr. Carson says that the course took him from one department to an other in the big Ford plant. He spent one week in each department, and the mechanics who attended from every state in the union were given the op portunity of seeing a Ford made from "the ground up," and given instruc tion in the mechanical- service of the Ford. It was his plan to spend one wefk in the tractor factory, but a strike was on at the time he was in Detroit and he was unable to take the course. The special training course is given to deserving employees by the Ford Motor company. One selection is made from each state and the Opelou sas boy happened to be the lucky one for this year, as a result of which he knows considerably more about the Ford today than he did last February, and at the same time enjoying a very pleasant stay in one of the most beau tiful cities of the United States. Mr. Carson returned here on last Sunday and went right to- work in his same position as foreman of the big-Ford garage here. CLUB LETTERS Cataro, La., April 14, 1920. Dear Mrs. Kirk: I will let you know what work are we club members doing. We all have our cows, and a few little calves, but 1 have a three-year-old Jersey cow. I j am feeding her just as well as I can. I am just as interested in the dairy club as in the tomato club. I have transplanted all of my to matoes. By their appearance, I am sure they wil grow fine. I put enough fertilizer in for-them to grow. Most all of the other garden club members have transplanted theirs, but some have a great deal of trouble. They say that they don't quite know what 1 eats the leaves of their plants. Mine ' were just like that, but I soon found that it was the ants. I put Paris green under my plants and they were soon all gone and killed. I told them about it so they said they would do it often. Every night I sprinkle some water on them, for we haven't had rain for a few days. Everybody in the clubs are taking great interest in their work. This is all I can tell for this time. Yours truly, ANNIE FONTENOT. Melville, La., April 9, 1920. Dear Mrs. Kirk : I am sorry I couldn't attend the meeting on .the 31st. I was sick. I haVe just started to school again. My lettuce is headed. I think I will have a barrel of onions. I am go , ing to transplant my tomato plants next week. I also have thirty baby chickens out of fifteen eggs. I will close by hoping you will come j to see us soon. Respectfully, MYRTIS ROWE. J UST RECEIVED—Two Hundred and fifty pieces corrugated roofing, each 81 by 10 long.

A Combination That Can't be Surpassed The comparative chances of whether an oil company will make good can best be measured by the things that stand out as dominant feature«. The men who have organized it and supported it until it ( has reached its present pupular pinnacle, are business men, oil mon —men of achievement, whose characters can stand a most rigid in vestigation from those who do not know them, and whose names rep resent the utmost of honesty and integrity where they are known throughout the State of Louisiana. That's why the American OIL & REFINING COMPANY, INC., with its substantial personnel, its valuable assets, and its well-laid plans, will not only be a successful Company, but a big successful dividend-paying concern. WELL NO. 1 AMERICAN OIL A REFINING COMPANY'S Well No. 1 will be drilled on its famous Shaw lease, near the center of Section 31, and less than 3,000 feet from the Gilliland A Foster 40,000-barrel gusher recently brought in. Thid well will be started very soon, now that the derrick is erected, the camp house built and the' drilling rig will soon be placed in position and actual drilling will start. It takes from forty to sixty days to complete a well. WELL NO. 2 AMERICAN'S Well No. 2 will be drilled on one of the bast lo cated tracts in the DeSoto, Bull Bayou field. It is fifty acres in Sec tion 1-12-12, with producing wells on three sides. These wells came in with initial production from around 4,000 to 6,000 barrels. When one remembers that a big well on fifty acres means the property is worth several million dollars, the attractiveness of this tract is ap parent. There are producing wells in Section 2 end the Texas Com pany just brought in a good one over in Section 3. Make your idle money work for you. Fill out and send the cou pon for the shares you can afford. Do it today, as these shares will not long remain at par, $1.00. They will sky-rocket when tka first sand is struck.
