the sale of alum baking powders.
There must be a good reason for this.
It is because alum was found to be un
healthful.
Royal Baking Powder is made of cream

food product, and contains no alum nor

i I supported the Panama Canal gi

further taxing the people to pay it.

I have had 22 aidditional rural
routes created during my service,
including three automobile routes,
covering 615 additional miles of
country roads and serving 3630
families. I also have nine more
routes pending before the Depart
ment, which, when established,
will serve 1485 families more. I se
cured appropriations for $40,000 for
the completion of public buildings
in the District. I am supporting
the War Claims and Cotton Claims
Bill without other Southern mem
bers.
Necessarily, in this announce
ment I. have had to treat the matters
touched upon very brieflly, but I
intend to submit my work and rec
ord more in detail to you later.
Before coming to Congress I
served four years on the School
Board of my home Parish and five
years in the State Senate. Since
I have been in Washington I have
made many friends in Congress.
I have been made chairman of a
'ommittee and occupy positions on
two other important committees.
In view of the service I have ren
dered the people of the Seventh
District, and because of the ex
perience I have gained, which will
enable me to render greater service
in the future, I believe I am justi
fled in asking you to re-elect me.
I promise that if elected I will be
as faithful to the people I repre
sent and to my duties here as I
have been in the past.
Very truly yours,
L. LAZARO.

SENATE FAVORS WOMEN
SERVING ON BOARDS
Baton Rouge, June 6.-The consti
tutional amendment of Senator
Johnson of Washington, giving
women the right to serve on any
board connected with educational,
eleemosynary, penal and correc
tional systems of the state, was to
day finally passed by the Senate.
As originally introduced the bill
gave women the right to serve as
notary publics, but this provision
was stricken. out in the committee.
The vote in the Senate was 29 yeas,
nays 6.
Only two speeches, both short,
were made in favor of the bill.u Mr.
Johnson spoke for his measure and
Mr. Louque of New Orleans, sec
onded the motion for final passage.
He called attention to the fact Mrs.
Dibert had recently g.iven $200,000
to the Home Institute and it would
be unfair to take this money and
deny women the right of service on
educational boards.
