WILLIAM DUNCAN
Before he was an actor, William Duncan was an athletic instructor and a
writer for physical culture magazines. He first appeared on the stage with
Sandow, the strong man, ami later toured the country at the head of his own
drambtfc company playing Hamlet. Today he is known throughout the world
as a serial star and director. Upon completing "Smashing Barriers" Albert E.
Smith, presided of Vitagraph, furnished Mr. Duncan with a serial the produc
tion of which wltt- cost $1,000,000. __
"The Silent Aveflgec" Is the tl tla-oT the new serial. It was written by
Albert E. Smith and Cleveland Moffett. In this Mr. Duncan is given ample
opportunity to show his skill as a fancy shot pool player, expert on the ten
nis court and clever alight of hand performer. The thrills px-ovide the star
director with material in which to demonstrate his strength and ability as an
ail-round athlete. He insists on realism and will assume great risks to stage
a thrill as It should be performed. He will not use dummies or substitutes.
If the thrill is in the script, Mr. Duncan insists that it can bp perforated
and he does it regardless of the hazard.
His leading lady, Edith Johnson, is equally courageous and follows Wil
liam Duncan to the limit. They have been associated in several serials, in
cluding "The Man of Might" hnrt "A Fight for Millions."

COR.INNE,' GRIFFITH
Corinne Griffith Is known as the best dressed woman on tl.e screen. 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.

tion. 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,

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.
