THE RICHLAND BEACON-NEWS, RAYVILLE, LA. SATURDAY, JANUARY 15th, 1944. VOTERS OF RICHLAND PARISH! f f - . ' fa! , When you go to the polls next Tuesday to vote for your next REPRESENTATIVE, see that your vote helps elect BESSIE NOBLE, who asks for nothing more than the chance to serve you conscientiously and to your benefit. My qualifications for this office were stated in my announcement; my pledges and principles to which I adhere have been given in every speech I have made over the parish ; therefore, I feel that you are fully acquainted with my candidacy. By electing me to this office, you will be placing your trust and future representation into the hands of one whose character is above reproach; - One whose past shows a record of hard work and untiring efforts toward better government; One who is a friend of the farmer and working man ; One who understands the views of school teachers and bus drivers; One who is and will be in sympathy with returning service men; One who sympathizes with the unprovided-f or aged and who lends a helping hand to the underprivileged ; One who will foster legislation to promote the business man and industry; One who, by actual experience, will know how to aid high school graduates through college careers; and One on whom you can depend at all times under any circumstances to give honest, efficient, and faithful service. I assure you again of my appreciation for your support, and I take this means to publicly thank each and every person who is working in my behalf, for the many-encouraging remarks you give me, for the kind hospitality you have shown in your homes ; and to all parish and district candidates I appreciate your courtesies on our speaking engagements; and last, but not least, I am thankful that I live in a free country populated by free thinking people and have the opportunity to ask you to vote for me.

Myers, "A Call to Prayer": and Mrs. Jimmie Ball gave a hymn in response. All knelt and prayed the Lord's Prayer together. Mrs. C. Noble Hatch, vice-president and automatically program chairman. had charge of the program, installation of officers and pledge service. It was done beautifully, and nothing was left undone. Each officer, after installation, was given some emblem of her office, the president a gavel, with the words. You are to lead, guide and inspire." The greatness of the task would appal were it not in His name. The vice- president received the program ma terial, "The Lord's Song In A Strange Land." The corresponding secretary and treasurer, 1944 report books; secertary of supplies, a basket, to pick up supplies each quarter; secretary of mis sionary education and service, a world map and mission study book; spiritual life secretary, the Bible study, "God and the Problem of Human Suffer-ing."

Pollard, state president, tell ing of the great need in China and calling for increased pledges, at least five per cent. Mrs. C. N. Hatch played softly, "Take My Life and Let It Be Conse crated Lord to Thee," while the follow ing impressive words were read: January 8, 1944. Dear Mr. Mangham: I have been reading my paper regularly and always glad to get it. I'm always proud to read about my friends of the armed forces and how they are doing. Sorry to hear about James Reese Boies, but we will think of him and hi3 great sacrifice when we sail into Japan. So far I think we are doing a fine job and think you folks back home think so, too. I was very much gratified to receive several of my papers at once, after being at sea so long. I just sat and read until I finished and wanted more. I saw the letter Foster Jones, Jr., wrote, and can gladly say he sure is a good sailor. We left Rayville and went through training together at San Diego. He has shore duty and I'm on a grand ship and can proudly say we have participated in quite a few movements. Tell Mr. Foster Jones I saw his son but never had a chance to talk to him, but I hope to soon. Give all my friends a "hello" and keep the paper coming. Yours very truly, CLAUDE M.
