Plays, Players and Playhouses MANY REMARKABLE FEATURES IN "ALL FOR A WOMAN" I The feature at the Columbia the-i atre Saturday and Sunday will be "All for a Woman," a massive Asso ciated First National picture, pro duced on an unprecedented scale in a masterful manner. "All for a Woman" has a back ground of the French revolution, de picting the most dramatic events of those hectic days. The chief char acter is that of Danton, who for a time rivaled Robespierre in power, and who finally came to grief in the machine of his own making. Emil Jannings, who won such wide spread popularity through his work in "Passion," plays the part of Dan ton, and does it with a sure touch of artistry. The part calls for acting of an order which few film stars could register, but Jannings gives a per formance of the difficult role which will remain long in the memory of those who see the picture. Among the noteworthy features of I'All for a Woman" are the mas sive sets which form the background of the dr...

Henry Watkins Allen The War Governor of Louisiana. (By Miss Julia McGrath. Read at meeting of Henry Watkins Allen Chapter, March 22, 1922.) When the South was in the throes of that mighty struggle, the Civil War, which has left so lasting and vivid an impression upon the minds and hearts of a loyal and patriotic people, Louisiana gave to the cause many noble men, who figured in "A thousand glorious actions that might claim, Triumphant laurels and immortal fame." In that great episode ihi the history of the States, brave men found op portunity for deeds of valor and many today fill heroes' graves or wear the laurels above silvered brows. We recall with patriotic fervor the heroic deeds of our peerless Con federate soldiers; we laud their grand achievements and dwell with interest upon the historic incidents of that great struggle of 61-65. As true descendants of those dauntless men who gave so much for their country's cause, we the United Daughters of the Confederacy are, by our loya...

Among La. Clubs (Continued from page one) added to the Library fund by the club members having played 100 sub scriptions to Holland's magazine. We are about to realize our aim ijh es tablishing a public library in Ope lousas. Through the kindness of Mr. Gelvin, parish registrar and the gen erosity of the police jury, we are able to obtain the room heretofore serving as registrar's office in the court house, with free janitor service, lights and heat. The president appointed the different committees in the interest of the library to solicit lumber from the lumber companies for book shel ves, tables, etc., and to obtain car penters for the work.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE TRAVELERS' AID FROM MARCH 1921 TO MARCH '22 There is an excellent law in the Traveler's Aid, by which there must be rotation in office, and the term for which an office can be held, is three years; in 1921, as I had some important business unfinished, this law was suspended, giving me another term, so today I complete my fourth year as President and will make place for another, to whom I wish to pledge faithful service. As chairman of the Finance committee I shall have a spe cial interest in the collection and dis bursement of money, as Vice-Presi dent and a member of the Commttee of the Travelers Aid Home. I shall still take a very active part in the work which holds my heart. It may be of interest to give a brief synopsis of these four forma tive years, to show how the Travelers Aid has been built up by the aid of many willing hands and generous hearts, and is now a business organi zation, prepared to take a civic as well as a charitable part in the life of th...

"What Every Woman Knows" 225 THIRD STREET ý ý<" ft - }ý1 BATON ROUGE, LA Historical Items Culled From Home and Abroad Taxes were once paid the parish of East Baton Rouge in aligator skins. This privilege was granted to en courage the destruction of the rep tiles whose depredations caused great loss to early settlers in cattle and hogs. Coon skins were passed from hand to hand as currency at one time and there is a record in the office of the Clerk of Court showing that a lot of ground at the corner of what is now Church and Convention streets was sold for 200 coon skins. The first good roads movement in I this section was about 1847, when a l corporation was formed to cause a plank road from Baton Rouge to i M.linton to-be Fonitructed. The proj- .1 ect was entered upon in a spirit of t intense enthusiasm and six miles of a t Ssmooth bridge like plank road com- t pleted, then as either sufficient money I was not forthcoming or enthusiasm I died out the work was suspended. c Up to ...

We left Monterey on the evening of the 4th, and marched about three miles, when we halted for the nighi and were obliged to sit up for twc reasons: first, we were momentarily expecting to receive orders to march forward; and secondly, the rain which poured down in torrents would have prevented us from sleeping, had we been disposed or permitted to do so The next day we advanced slowly and camped within less than a mile of the enemy's camp. That night we could plainly hear their bands playing tat too and taps. The morning of the 6th we were aroused very early, but had not been up long when the rep...

THE GOLDEN MEAN. FLORENCE RIDDICK YS. Whether or not we eac have a "yellow streak," the drabst of us have, somewhere in the mysteries of our subconscious selves, a flaming red streak; red-bloodedge, we call it. You may squelch it continually and think you have it properly curbed, when, all unexpectedly some fine day, it will erupt, like Truth, which, "crushed to earth will rise again." It was this submerged Kaiety which, in connivance with a spring breeze, drove the sedate Mrs. Hendy to the extent of-of-of-calling oni a neighbor. Frivolously ignoring the stack of dinner dishes, she inveighed Baby to sleep in his cab on the front{ porch and absconded to Mrs. Brown's. across the street. To her amazement the front door was opened by two fluffy young lad ies in white and out of it escaped a pandemonium of chatter as from a mag-pie's nest. For a minute, Mrs. Hendy couldn't think what to do; then she excused herself the best she could and ran home, crushed, stabbed, collapsed. From the mo...

Civil War--Federal Raiders During the Civil war George Peck, author of Peck's Bad Boy and sub sequently editor of Peck's Sun, was a soldier of a Federal Cavalry regi ment stationed in this city from which raids were made from time to time to the sections north and east of this place. On one raid the regi ment went as far east as Brookhaven, of which little town they made a bon fire, destroying every house, store and cabin and outhouse. This was in 1864. Years after, while publishing the Sun, Peck wrote the following: On Tuesday we read in a city paper that a gentlemtn from Brookhaven, Miss., was married to a Milwaukee lady, and for an hour we trembled for fear the marriage was an excuse to allow a fiery southerner to come up here and get even with us for burn ing the town of Brookhaven, in 1864. We handled our revolvers carelessly, t and aimed at the door several times, just to see if we could hit the Brook- a haven man, if he should come in on a jump and gallop over us. But the hou...

A Memory Even today, under the pines on the hill, they are crying "Dust to Dust, Ashes to Ashes,' 'and throwing clods (clods that sound so), as the long procession circles arounid Joe's grave. He is laid on that country hillside where autumn leaves are falling and November winds are wailing; they will wail tonight above Joe's grave. He is laid near Mammy, Mammy Han nah, cousin and the two strong young men that were Mammy's, who fell by I a political bullet The wailing wind makes an Eaolian I harp of my strings that play "Mem- I ories of the Past." The key is minor, but low and sweet as the golden days come back. One, our very first Christmas, that l is the first I can remember. The i stork had brought three of us by that I time, but Joe said the stork never brought me because he found me him- r self all curled up in the big white I rose at the duck house and put me ( in Mammy's apron himself to take to t Miss Kate. He showed me the rose bush. On the first Christmas, tho' Father a wa...
