Following are extracts from let ters from some of Ainerica.'s r-reat )t est men on the value of a business IC education. H-lon. Champ (lark, re , cent speaker of the House of Repre ie sentatives, Washington, D. C., said: s. "Since I have been elected Speaker 1 have had it more thoroughly impress ed on me than ever before that :: i- thorough business college training is i of exceeding importance." 0. M. d Dickinson, former Secretary of War, r- Washington, D. C., "Contempora o neously with taking my general edu cd ation, I took a course in a business ), college and found it of value to me, if not only generally, but in the prac tice of law." R. B. Glenn, Ex-Cov is ernor of North Carolina: "I cheer Le fully recommend to every one a prac 5, tical business education for their children." Oswald Best, Ex-Gover ;s nor )f Oregon: "The modern I,u i If nesy school plays a large part in in 'fitting young men and . women for their entrance into the n business world." T. C. Pickett, rep y resentative from Iowa: "The value even necessity of a practical educa o tion to young people today is so ob e vious that no argument should be re qu;red in support of it." E. F. Noel. n ex-Governor of Mississippi: "I take f ,leasure in testifying to the import Sance of a practical business educa . tion, and to the efficienc r of a prop I1 erly conducted business school in k imparting such knowledge." C.N. SHaskell, ex-Governor of Oklahoma. e "I consider practical business educa - tion of the greatest importance." John W. Kern, United States Sena . tor: "Everybodiy ought by this time - to understand that business men and women need business education on e the same principle that a doctor n must have a medical education." J. M. Cary, Governor of Wyoming. "Too much cannot be said in behalf of a - good commercial education." I do s not believe that such an education can be too highly recommended." S Earle B. Mayfield, railroad com missioner of-Texas: The world today d is calling for men who are prepared e and can get results. The keynote of -success is "Efficiency." . Tyler Cornm , mercial College offers such prepara tion and I unreservedly commend it Sto the young men and women of , Texas. I am proud of the diploma which I hold from the Tyler Com . mercial College. The commercial - training instilled into me while I was - a student in your institution has been of incalculable benefit to me in Sdealing with the problems arising - even before the Railroad Commis - sion of our State. 1 Shouldn't the above evidence set tle the question with you as to what kind of an education is needed? Read the catalogue of America's - largest commercial school, the one r giving the most extensive course of study, the one placing its graduates Iin the best positions, the one that has more than 3,000 enrollments an nually from over half the states of the Union, the school with a National reputation.

[l genfritz, chairman of the Wom,n,'i* work for the parish, appointed Mi:ss Anna Simmons of Jennings, chairme n of surgical dressings and two mem bers from each of the branches o;n the inspection committee. Mrs. Anna Prentice and Miss Emma Lawsoi were appointed inspectors from the Welsh branch. Mr. Chas. E. Eiber was appointed on the salvage com mittee. These appointments were approved by the executive board. After disposing of the business a conference of Red Cross worker.; was held and Mrs. Ilgenfritz gave a x cry interesting report of the Red Cross conference held in New Orleans o,: Aug. 2 2and 23. The rules and regulations for the departments of work were presented and the necessity for adherinmt strictly to them was emphasize.l. The meeting was well attende 1 ,the chairman of all departments of each branch in the parish being present. The plans for the parish organiza tion are now perfected and all work ers have entered enthusiasticall- into the execution of these plans. Mrs. Ilgenfritz gave the message from Mrs. Moberly in regard to the allotments. Owing to the scarcity of volunteer workers in New Orleans the allotm!nents may be delayed but do not be discouraged as they will be forthcoming. The shortage of wool may effect the knitting allotments. The 'efugee work is very urgent and we may expect these allotments to continue. We are urged to interest the col ored women in Red Cross work. Daily reports of work room chair men are required to be kept and sent to the parish chairman of wom in's work. Let us all aid all we ca, i; systematizin the work by he ~,i ing all these rules. A new Singer sewing machine has been purchased by the Welsh bra ich. Mrs. Katherine Armsirong donat ed a sewing mnachine to the Wer' branch which is most gratefully ac.i cepted. " Miss Emmnia Lawson, chairman of knitting notifies the knitters to send in all of their finished socks of the new allotment by Aug. 28, and i mark them as alloted socks. The new allotment must be distinct and to itself. All kmnitters of the old yarn are urged to send in all socks, sweaters and other knitted garments all left over yarn (even to small odds and ends) by the last of the month as it must be sent in to headquarters. Remember that this is urgent. Send in garments of the old yarn whether finished or unfinished. Mr. F. G. Seward, chairman of the Welsh branch, and Mrs. Wim. Fear, head instructor in surgical dressings, attended the conference held in New Orlean· 'ast week. The; report a very enjoyable and instructive meet ing. Miss Ione Robinson, chairman ofI the Jefferson Davis Junior Red Cross work, visited the headquarters while in New Orleans and is enthus iastic over the possibilities of the work for the Juniors. They are urged to assist in the :salvage work. 1 The chairman will tell you all about it. You remember in the last War Fund Drive Welsh was alloted $1500 I and went over the top by raising $8,534.44.

A PROPHETICAL ODE TO THE KAISER (Irregular Verse.) W. Lomax Childress. Well my dear friend Bill you went up the hill, But you came down a good deal faster, For you found that the "Sammie" from over the sea Was not your servant but master. It must have come as a sad surprise To be swatted so neatly between the eyes, By a cow puncher doomed to roam, To be clubbed on your cultured marble dome, To be chased up a hill and over a vale, To cross three'rivers without a sail, On your flying pathway home. Well read old Bill its a bitter pill To be chased in the August weather, To meet the Ladies from out of hell, And probably go there at last to dwell With his "Nibs" of the Turkish throne. To be Wilsonied in American style, As an innocent victim without any guile, Tis enough the Teutonic liver to rile, Or to put the ache in the bone. But dear old Bill since the wind is ill, It will blow you on to the end. It will blow into bits your tottering throne, It will make you reap as you long have sown, Till you find that the fate of the fool is your owil, And you are broke as you would not bend. For Billie the germ in your German head Gave a hunch that speaks for a kingdom dead, And the Kaiser is Kized at last, String up the "Weenies" and pack up the beer. Andt look for a boat for the Rhine is near. Ani tlhe scooting path to Berlin is clear, With a following army vast, "Y':nk:ce l)oodle" comes to town upon a shaggy pony, Millcr and Sit h and all of the rest and even Te(l(ly Maloney, They mi:arch to the ditty of Dixie too Aid '"'The Star Spangled Banner" is wrood for you 'T' }, linw!.: Broncho busting crew Lithe andl a little bony. tillie it must t,e sad to see such a gay and gallant company Ric:ht llhere at your palace gate, With tihe Pru:sian guards knocked galley west, \Y the ohli U. S. in the final test. Why BIillie oli kid why I'll be blest BIut you've come to a dolorous fate Ti,e 'rown prince too is pinched so thin tHe coull co through a key hole and get in And Hindenburg is a fright, So Billie the show is over at last The curtain is down and the die is cast And i guess we will blow out the light.
