Wood Starts Move ment in Hillcrest and Second Meet ing With Strong Representation From First Ward Is Held. Fair notice is given to all germs and insects that there is no place for them in Pulaski Heights. Not even the familiar house fly or musically-in clined mosquito will be permitted to stop in passage, even though it be but to rest its wings. This is not a mandate from Town Marshal Hawkins but a genuine declaration of war from the house wives of the city. With brooms and soap, rakes and matches the ladies are going to make Pulaski Heights the cleanest and healthiest city in all Ar kansas. Two organizations have been formed to carry on the clean-up crusade and it is expected that a club will be form ed in each ward of the city so that the work may extend to every section and be thorough in its scope. The first club was formed in Hillcrest, at the home of Mrs. T. L. Cox and Mrs. Car rol D. Wood was elected president. A second club, the Pulaski Heights Health Club, was organized Tues day afternoon at the home of Mrs. J. F. Loughborough on Prospect avenue. At this meeting Mrs. Carl Baer was elected president; M]rs. Ashley Cock rill, vice president, and Mrs. C. E. Cas ueuerry, secretary. 1 ue executive committee is composed of the above ladies, with the addition of Mrs. W. C. Garrison and Mrs. Loughborough. The ladies who have enlisted are: Mrs. H. H. Kirby, Mrs. McCormick, Mrs. Stockman, Mrs. L. H. Bradley, Mrs. E. J. Clancy, Mrs. Lyda Dice, Mrs. W. G. Sprague, Mrs. C. O. Car penter, Mrs. Anderson, Mrs. G. W. Emerson, Mrs. V. B. Curtis, Mrs. George Firman, Mrs. Wright, Mrs. M. J. Manning, Mrs. J. B. Webster, Mrs. J. S. Draper, Mrs. Ross, Mrs. O. E.

Loughborough on Wednesday morn ing, February 3, at 10 o’clock. All ladies who will give their help to this movement are invited and urged to at tend. Mrs. Wood and the Hillcrest ladies are busy with their plans and will hold frequent meetings to further the work. These ladies do not expect to per form the whole task alone. They have asked and have been extended the co operation of Dr. Boyce, the city health officer, Mayor Bradley and all the city officials. The moral influence of these ladies’ clubs, it is recognized, will be a great help to the better health move ment. AUTO DRIVE THROUGH WATER WORKS PARK IS SUGGESTED. There isn’t a finer view in all the Ozark mountains than that to be ob tained from thei ridge upon the crest of which is located the waterworks reservoir in Pulaski Heights, where the Water Company has an eighty-acre park. It is here that thousands of chil dren come in the spring to gather vio lets and wild flowers. The Water Company has shown its pride in the natural beauty of the place by cutting out the underbrush and encouraging the growth of grass and flowers. Now it would be a splendid thing if the winding roadway leading from Prospect avenue up to the reservoir could be converted into an automobile driveway that would permit the hun dreds of pleasure parties that come to the Heights on summer days to drive through this beautiful woodland, circle the reservoir and pass out over one of the newly-paved streets to the westward. No one ever visited this spot that was not inspired by the magnificent view—the river and Ft. Logan H. Roots on one side, and the city of Lit tle Rock with its circling hills on the other.

When you pay your bills write on the margin of the check, “Do you advertise in The Pu laskian ?" CITIZEN REID HEADS LITTLE ROCK BAR Former Congressman Chas. C. Reid.
