A Letter of Interest Both Locally and Historically (Among the papers read at a meet ing of the Historical Society of East', and West Baton Rouge was a letter from Colonel James Gibbs Morgan to his nephew Hon. Howell Morgan, State Treasurer. As it is historical as well as local, Woman's Enterprise takes the liberty of publishing same.) Washington, D. C., March 25, 1916. My dear Howell: Many thanks for your very inter esting letter and the enclosures. I was immensely interested in the news paper clipping giving an account of the meeting of the Historical Society, and I hope that it will be a great suc cess. You have plenty of historical matter connected with Baton Rouge, if it can only be hunted up, but, un fortunately, many, if not all, of the records were dstroyed when the state house was burned, and many others were pillaged or scattered into the streets when private houses were ransacked at the time of the capture of the city during the Civil War. For instance, among other things ...

The Era of Filibustering The Part Played by a Contingent of Baton Rougeaj Under Walker in Nikaragua. By JO)IN McG;RATI. Were it not for periodical revolu tions, Nicaragua would scarce!v be known or heard of by other peoples of the North American republics but the amitious leaders of that com bative country contrive from time to time to bring themselves into notice by initiating revolutionary measures. What a pity when, were the energies of that people directed toward the de velopment of their country, they would soon possess the richest, as it is the loveliest, portion of North America. One would imagine that after the experience gaine(l by that turbulent people during the years 1835, 1856 and 1857, after the introduction of Walker and his men and their incorporation into the ranks of one of the revolu tionary factions or parties, Nicara guans would have learned a lesson not soon to be forgotten. But, alas, the competition among the leading families to rule is so fierce that were it...

Choosing a Profession What Are You Going To Be When You Grow Up? Perhaps These Discussions by Freshmen of the Louisiana State University Will Help You Decide WHY I CHOSE HOME ECONOMICS AS MY PROFESSION. (Myrtle Wren). Why did I choose Home Economics as my profession? In choosing a profession, one always selects the subject in which he is most interested, the one in which he can advance the farthest, and the one in which he thinks he can accomplish the most. Girls, when they desire to take up Home Economics, are often discour aged by those who still hold to the old-time and ignorant belief that they can acquire this knowledge at home, or after they start housekeeping for themselves. Would a doctor or a lawyer begin practicing without first studying and acquiring a thorough knowledge of the fundamentals and of the underlying principles upon which his profession is based? It was al,) thought at one time that anyone could be a farmer. It is now known that a farmer must have scientific k...

Choosing a Profession (Continued from page 11) purchased an automobile, which not only re.awakened my interest in me chanics, but also showed me the true meaning of the saying, "A little know range would suddenly take wings and fly straight to her scissors. How noiseless falls the foot of time that only treads on flowers! With no consciousness whatever of the flight of years I reached the age of ledge is a dangerous thing." Two weeks after my sixteenth birth day I entered the Louisiana State University as a student of mechanical engineering, my mind aglow with the burning thought that in a not too far distant day I should invent something to help not only my mother, but all mankind as well.

SYSTEM IN THE HOME In the "good old days," work was done more or less hit-and-miss. No body had to hurry, and shiftless folk could get on fairly well with only half way methods. But this is the day of efficienc--not only a thing to be used in the factory, but an important asset of the home. The fact that we women had not applied it here is what gave rise to the saying: "Man's work is from sun to sun, woman's work is never done." The adage is no longer true in the best regulated famalies. The capable LOUISIANA CLUBS.

LOUISIANA CLUBS (Continued from page three) But more remarkable than the event or the program were the wom en themselves. There were many no ted ones, many with a striking record I of achievement, many who were I beautiful, womanly, strong, eloquent I speakers, well-dressed but not over dressed, sincere, modest, democratic, I sociable, sane, well-poised, full of t "pep" and wit, philanthropic, and, if there be other virtues, you would I find them there. Either club women were near-ideal, or else these were on their good behavior. There were among them ,as some t one said, "not too many gray heads, r but too few brown heads." This is]i probably because older women are C better able financially to manage a C ten day excursion of this kind, and e also more free from family cares and f able to engage in club work. t Their up-to-the-minute manner and r language was noticeable, just enough t slang creeping into their speech to e make it alive.

What About a Vacation Florence Riddick Boys. Are you planning what you will do to relax your forces for a season? The bow which is always strung loses its elasticity. You cannot maintain pep and top-notch efficiency without an occasional trip. Webster says a vacation is "free dom from duty or service; leisure." It implies that you are a worker, and that you must release yourself from the strain for a time. The only thor ough way to accomplish this is to go clear away from the sight of your work. It rests you to have a change of scene, to do the exact opposite of your regular employment, to use a different set of muscles, and to round out your program of life. This means that the city-dweller should take to the woods, and Mrs. Farmer should loiter along the boule vard with nothing to do but gaze into shop windows, visit the movies, or watch the comers and goers in the hotel lobby. If the ruralist makes hay while the sun shines or his wife sticks by the berries, the cherries, and the ...
