B. Bennett o Legion Auxiliary Members To Sell Poppies On May 30 The Caldwell unit of the American Legion Auxiliary will conduct the poppy sales throughout the parish on May 30th. Every poppy sold by the Legion and the Auxiliary is made by the disabled men in the hospital and they receive one ,cent each. It gives them employment and an opportunity to make a few cents to spend. Over 1,000,000 have been made this year in the hospital at Gulport, Miss. Every one should wear a poppy on Memorial Day, Saturday May 30th. Arbor Day soon will be kept in the many states. It has the peculiarity of being a festival which Is purely constructive. Its practical and obvious teaching is the reforesting of areas which greed and thoughtfulness have denuded of their natural and necessary covering. Considered from a less, material viewpoint, whoever prints a tree, which bursts into leaf at each recurring spring tide, ha3 before him a symbol of Hope, without; which life would be intolerable. true and exact copy of the notice of election this day made and signed by.

THORNHILL, Secretary May 5th, 1931 Columbia, La. . --o TO POSTPONE COLLECTION OF TAXES IN CALDWELL Owins: ta existing: conditions. have decided to extend the time pay- ment of parish and state taxes un til Saturday, July 11th, 1931. I have taken this matter up with the state auditor who states that he has no auhority to instruct that additional time be granted delinquent taxpayers, but that if it deemed advisable to do so, his office will make no complaint. Therefore if you really need more time to raise the money to pay your taxes you can have up to the 11th of July. But taxes mirst be paid by that time or it will be necessary to advertise the property on which taxes are delinquent in the usual "delinquent tax sale" in order to make the collection as required bv law. The parish and the state institutions need the money due from the unpaid taxes so if it is not absolutely necessary for you to take the additional time, please call at the sheriffs ofice at your earliest opportunity and make settlement on your taxes which are now past due.

MAY SOUP KITCHENS IN THIS PARISH PR0VE VALUE Students Being- Fed At Soup Kitchens Gain In Weight Proving that the providing of hot soup for the .school children through the auspicies of the Red Cross organization were beneficial, we quote the following figures from a small high school in Franklin parish: From Ogden high school where 150 school children were served hot lunches over a period of one month, these gains in weight were noted: 1st grade total number of pounds underweight, 71; number of pounds gained 45. 2nd grade total number of pounds underweight 76; number of pounds gained 54. 3rd grade total number of pounds underweight, 47; number of pounds gained 24.5. What further proof than these necessary gains in the weights of the primary children could be needed to show that the soup, bread, hot chocolate and fruit served at this echool was indeed nourishing? In order to give the public a general idea of the menu for the soup kitchen we quote the following from Mrs. G. W. Durham, business manager: "First, we saw that the ingredients for the soup were thoroughly nourishing and well balanced; next, that it was sanitary and well cooked. One favorite recipe 'included a soup made of English peas, corn, carrots, macaroni and ground meat which had been well browned. With this we alternately served bread and crackers. For the smaller children we tried to have hot chocolate whenever possible, and also fruit when the budget permitted- Franklin (Winnsboro) Sun.

Several states whose legislatures till are in session have yet to report their projects. February was the busiest month in the hitory of the public toads bureau. Night workers were assigned t0 care for th; rush of business. .In the one rnoi.ih $22,000,000 was removed from the appropriations listings and assigned tQ approved projects. With good weather at hand much of the winter's paper work is to be translated into the kind of work that provides payrolls and fills the family larder. The latest available figures show 4,648 miles of highway construction approved for a total outlay of $103,531,389. This is to be added tc the 9,451 miles costing $237,904,915 now under construction. About half of this money is provided by the federal government. There is a baiance of $108,360,973 still to be assigned to projects as they are approved. During 1930 federal highway aid amounted to $125,780,000 as compared with $74,616,000 in 1929. The increases since 1929 are the result of legislation of last April increasing the federal participation from $75,000,000 to $125- 000.000 for the fiscal year ending on June 30, 1931, and providing for the equal amounts for 1932 and 1933. In addition there is the recent emergen cy appropriation of $80,000,000 to be advanced to states for use in match ing the regular federal aid funds. FRIZELL BRICK CO., INC.
