Junior Extention Department My Work Among the Young People. 1 My opportunity for working with' the young people's organizations, has been so limited, I feel that it is scarcely worthy of a report. In fact': my privileges have not kept pace with my interest, by any means. There are almost no clubs, among the young girls in my territory. In the spring of 1921, when I was act ing President of the Fourth District Louisiana Federation of Women's Clubs, I presided at our Annual Con vention (District) in the city of Shreveport. Mrs. Percy Pennybacker, of Texas, our past General Federation Presi dent whom we all love and esteem so highly, was an honor guest at a beautiful luncheon, given by the Civ ic Department of the Woman's De partment Club of Shreveport, at which the officers of our District, and our dearly beloved state President, Mrs. A. F. Storn, were also honor guests (as well as the Department Chairmen of the Hostess Club). Many very beautiful and timely boasts and speeches were in...

While marching through the plaza and to the outskirts of Granada I felt myself a hero for was I not entering upon active military life and the only one of the 120 men of the party who had experienced the excitement of battle. For awhile I entertained my file mate with a description of the fight at Rivas and tried earnestly to impress upon the minds of my listen ers that I was a war worn veteran while they were recruits. But vet eran or not, recruit or not, I soon dis covered that I could not keep pace with the fellows I was accompany ing. They marched along at a steady pace while I began to lag behind.

DISTRICT REPORTS OF LOUISIANA FEDERATION OF WOMEN'S CLUBS REPORT FIRST AND SECOND 1 DISTRICTS. Madam President: The First and Second Districts of the Louisiana State Federation of Women's Clubs have but few things to report which were directly the work of the Districts constituted as such. The twenty-six Clubs of our membership cover such a multiplicity of subjects, that it is only as a means of extension work that we can serve 'the State Federation without tres passing at times on the province of some member-club. We held a meeting in May, at! which time a resolution was offered to change date of annual convention of our districts to conform with the time observed by the other Districts. This was requested of us by the State Convention held in November, 1921,J to facilitate itinerary of State Presi dent, and at our Annual Convention 4 held October 25th, 1922, the resolution was adopted. We have three new member-clubs to report, the Fourth Ward Civic League, the Sixteenth Ward Inde ...

RY OF IEN AND LANDMARKS THAT HAVE GONE Following the men who built and occupied them the old houses con -lected with the early history of Baton Rouge, with few exceptions, are no more in evidence, and these few are being followed rapidly by more modern structures. On Lafayette St. alone are to be found buildings which mntedated all now standing and among these is what was once the Tessier residence, now known as the Flats, and if the walls of the old house could speak, what tales they could tell of the happy and care-free lives of the I gallant men and lovely women who occupied the place; of the grand balls and parties, of the sumptuous feasts, of courtships, of marriages, of deaths. In the parlors of the ancient resi doence many notable weddings were solemnized and wedding feasts spread. Whether Judge Tessier was married, there is not known, but it is known that his daughters were, one to an army officer, a Major Van Bocklin, and the second to the late Major T. J. Bird.

A lot of logs fixed together out in the country, a flowing stream, a colonial governor, 2 clergymen, sit stern members of a colonial council, 8 elderly men, 80 women, 150 set tlers, a few tomahawks, half a dozen bottles of prop "blood"-,and prsto! ---the historcial attack upon and de fense of Jamestown, Va., in 1620, found its way to an eventual repro duction on the screens of America.

ACTRESS RISES FROM "E TRA" TO IMPORTANT ROLE IN "SKIN DEEP" Marcia Manon Began Her Career in Europe; Now Well Known. Starting her screen career as an "extra" not so long ago, Marcia Ma non will appear as one of the leads in the exceptionally strong cast playing in Thomas H. Ince's special produc tion, "Skin Deep." Miss Manon's success on the screen is an excellent example of what can be accomplished by study and work. She started to work in the pictures as an "extra" at the Lasky. lot. Hay ing had a little stage experience in Europe, Miss Manon put it to the best advantage in every bit of work as signed to her. The result was that she attracted the attention of the di rectors and was therefore given more prominent parts. Her first piece of real work that was crowned with success was her role of the drunken wife in "Stella Maris." In "Skin Deep," Miss Manon plays the part of the wiley, cunning wife of a ringleader in a gang of crooks. Poisoned by conceit and flat tory, she yields to ...

LOUISIANA CLUBS COMMUNITY WELP Ann w wa mm COMMUNITY WELFARE LEAGUE. Natchitoches, La. That real civic interest and pride are being rapidly developed among many of the women of Natchitoches who heretofore have been more or less indifferent, by the splendid work being done by the Community Wel fare League, is clearly evidenced by the attendance at the meetings and splendid results obtained thereby. The meeting Monday afternoon was fine, the reports from the different com mittees finer, and proof of their in telligent and well directed efforts finest! It was decided that strenuous ef forts would be made to get not only every member but every woman in Natchitoches to register and pay poll tax before the end of the year, other wise she cannot participate in any election for the next two years, and not only are several important ones already scheduled to take place, but others likely to occur, and every woman owes it to hesrelf, her fam ily and community to be prepared to her duty, so al...

PASSING OF THE GRAND. DAUGHTERS OF GENERAL PHILEMON THOMAS With the death of Mrs. Lucretia Bridges, a monegerarian, one of two of the oldest inhabitants of Baton Rouge has passed from scenes con nected with a long and useful life. Mrs. Bridges was the oldest native of Baton Rouge at the time of her death reaching back as she did to the early dayS of American possession of this city. She was a daughter of Elizabeth Thomas who was daughter of General Philemon Thomas, com mander of the force that captured the fort at this place and expelled the Spanish authorities. Mrs. Bridges, a favorite granddaughter of the stout old soldier and patriot, was eighteen years of age when her grandfather died and until very recently took great pleasure in relating anecdotes and historieal sketches told her by her grandfather. Mrs. Bridges was beyond 'doubt the oldest Baptist in age and church connection in this parish having been a devoted and consistent member of that religious denomination since youth...

PLAYING 'POSSUM ADDIE McGRATH LEE. PART I. The pine needles rustled with that cadence peculiar to them under'Nervy Dixon's feet as she made her way slowly up the hill. Haste had no place in her vocabulary, for there had been no occasion for hurrying in all her life. She had been in search of an adventurous hen, who had disdain ed the hay nests in the shed in the shed loft, and "went-a-settin"' in a hollow log down in the woods on her own account. 'Nervy's brown apron held nine fluffy chicks, while the mother hen with outstretched wings, fluttered here and there, .squaking distractedly, taking sudden fright and scurrying into the woods, then return ing with defiant air and the proud cluck of proprietorship. "Seems like yer could sense that I wasn't goin' to hurt 'eh," she remark dd to the distressed hen, "I'd let 'em raise out if the varmint's wouldn't pester 'em, but it ain't no use to think yer could do better by 'em than me."
