(COPY) TALKS WITH SCREEN STRUCK GIRLS By Beatriz Mizeiena. Eevery girl who has had as pirations to become a picture star, has probably sometime come upon an advertisement that reads after this fashion: Be a motion picture performer and earn from $50 to $500 weekly. No experi ence necessary. Full particu lars by mail. Maybe she has answered it in a burst of enthusiasm, and in due time found it to be the bait of some so-called school of motion picture acting. She doubteless received an elabo rate prospectus, breathing in naive confidence the secrets to the golden El Dorado of the motion picture profession. Things were painted in a bril liant hue, -well intended to whet the appetite for a course of instruction,, incidently of fered at a moderate tuition fee. And who is to blame for her gullibility? Were not in' stances, almost without num ber cited of women who had succeeded in pictures just as the prospectus promised she would succeed? Undeniably the entire matter had a tone of plausibility. That is the pros pectus man's business. If she took the course, how ever, she has .by now profited largely in experience, if not in the art of motion picture act ing. She can tell you better than I how empty were the sweet promises of that pros pectus. They erected for her a magnificent palace of dreams but it is shattered now and her pocketbook has suffered too. Worse still, unless she be a girl of unusual metal, she is broken in spirit. If she had ex pected less, she might have ac complished more. But she ex pected too much and the bit ter disappointment of it has wrung out the ambition she once had. That is one reason why the fake school of motion picture acting is such a crime. However, like many other forms of crime it continues to flourish. Nearly every city has its fake schools now. It is merely a case of a lot of scoun drels, more or less schrewd in their villany, trying to capital ize the motion picture craze that has swept the country, and especially the craze, found in some quarters, to become a motion picture actor or actress. Please, my "screen-struck" friends, beware of these pros pectuses and their rosy prom ises. They can bring you noth ing but disappointments. WHAT RURAL DELIVERY HAS ACCOMPLISHED The rural delivery is indeed a boon to the country. Its measureless advantages can not be estimated, hor need the cost of ipaintenance be consid ered, for it has broadened the field of industrial opportunity, touched as if with magic pow er the possibilities of human endeavor, and transformed conditions to a degree almost marvelous. It has brought the printed page, the great -edu cator of civilization, daily to the home; has brought spe cial delivery almost to the door; has secured good roads and maintains them by official interest and concern; it has at tracted the attention of the va rious States-to this question and obained results; it has made farm lands more valua ble and contributed to increas ed production; it has' abridged 'time ly rapid communication; brightened all environment, and made ordinary dull rou tine interesting and attractive;. it has lessened toil by the in structive suggestions which Government experiment and inquiry affords, and has made the home a center of influence and crowns domestic life -with all that makes for peace and contentment.

LEWIS FOR DISTRICT ATTORNEY To the People oS St. Landry and Evangeline: I think you are entitled to know how I propose to conduct the office of District Attorney, should you in your judgment bestow upon me ,that high and important duty. Here, in brief, is what I promises: First-A prompt investigation of °all affidavits preferred and a speedy presentation of them to the Grand Jury. Second-When the facts and the law justify it, I will use the power of filing Bills of Information regard. less of who the offender may be. Third-I will personally investigate every crime committed justifying such investigation and get the state ment of witnesses while the facts are fresh and before friends and relatives of the accused beco.:e * promiscuously active. Fourth-I will attend to the business of the office first, and afterwards my own, and my every effort shall be to procure speedy trials of all offenders, irrespective of condition and influence. Fifth-As soon as I am inducted into office, if you elect me, I shall im. mediately ask for.. a term of crimn inal court, and either try or dismiss, as the facts may justify, all the cases now on the docket; and no future prosecution shall remain on that docket any longer than it takes me to dispose of it by legal means.
