A Splendid Record
To All County Chairmen: In the
third Liberty Loan campaign just

trict district made a record which certainly
cannot be excelled, and I think could
hardly be equalled by any district in
the United States. f
The district oversubscribed its
quota and each state oversubscribed
its quota as follows: Uver-

Louisiana 20,858,750 28
Every one of four hundred and
twenty-seven counties in the district
oversubscribed their quota.
The above record is one of which
each of us should feel justly proud.
There is enough glory in it for all.
Without your untiring efforts and co cooperation

been obtained, but with your support
this district has been placed in an en enviable

ASKS FOR INFORMATION
A friend of ours sent us the follow following
ing following list of inquiries yesterday, and as
we have no time today to hunt up the
necessary statistics, we print them, in
hopes that folks with more leisure
may supply the required information:
Editor Star: Yesterday in your
paper I noticed a short paragraph in
which was stated funds had been
transferred from the light and water
fund to the general fund, and your
apparent assumption of this being the
reason the plants were not showing a
profit.
Do you know whether:
The light and water plant was pur
chased with or charged to general
fund, or earnings from these plants?
Is any portion of the city clerk's
compensation charged to these plants,
or is it charged only to the general
fund?
Much of the municipal litigation
has been due to or arisen by reason of
these plants, in one instance special
counsel employed. Did such special
counsel receive his remuneration from
general funds, or from these plants?
Does not the city levy thousands of
pensation from general funds, or is
any portion cnarged up to tnese
plants ?
Does not the city levy thousands of
dollars of taxes for interest and sink sinking
ing sinking fund by reason of bonds issued
for these plants? Is this in any way
ever charged against these plants, or
do the taxpayers have to stand for it
absolutely?
These plants are exempt from tax taxation,
ation, taxation, thereby throwing the amount
which would be received from them it
privately owned on the rest of the
property in the city. Yet, I am in informed
formed informed a levy is made to pay for
service from these plants to the city.
For the purpose of determining
whether these plants are self-sustaining
or not, would it not be necessary,
in order to arrive at a true state statement,
ment, statement, to charge them with taxes, if
the taxpayers are levied with taxes
to pay for service to the city?
Does the city manager's compen compensation,
sation, compensation, or any portion thereof, come
out of income from these plants, or
wholly from general fund? Does he
not have some supervision over these
plants also, and is his services not
partly necessary by reason of these
plants ?
Is it not true that a portion of the
work and labor of the council arises
from having to give some attention to
matters connected with these plants t
Is any portion of their compensation
paid from income of these plants, or
is it all charged to general funds?
If the plants were truly self-sustaining,
would the amount of taxes
levied, probably, including licenses,
per year, $50,000, be necessary for
sewerage and general purposes?
Assuming sewerage would cost for
interest, $5000, for sinking fund,
$5000, work on streets to be $500 a
month or $6000, policemen partly paid
from fines, balance say estimated,
$300 a month, $3600, fire station, say
$500 a month, $6000, making a total
of $25,000. These figures are mere merely
ly merely assumed or guessed at. I have no
means of knowing if they are approx approximately
imately approximately correct.
This is not intended for publication,
but I know taxes are eating me raw,
and I cannot believe these plants are
even nearly self-sustaining, and
would be very glad if some true state statement
ment statement of the real profit or loss from
these plants, based on all' proper
charges against them were made. It
would be more satisfying than a
mere assertion or assumption, based
on a single phase of the whole situation.

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. And, if you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
ey money to your Government.

We here at home who associate the
great Red Cross movement with band bandages
ages bandages and white gowned nurses must
lose this old illusion in the light of a
thousand other works for humanity.
In this case we see the Red Cross
first as diplomats convincing the clvl
authorities of Paris as to their ability
to remedy the situation, then as
architects remodeling buildings, chang changing
ing changing building plans, hiring labor gath gathered
ered gathered by themselves from the ex-sol-diery
and the older man, all the while
working under every Imaginable hand handicap,
icap, handicap, while Father Time cried, "Get It
done, get It done."
So out of the garrets came these de
spairing people to find new hope Ix
clean homes, to get new cheer out of
sheer bodily comfort and fresh cour courage
age courage to again take up the great trust
that. France has kept so well "to car carry
ry carry on." It Is not strange that out
French brothers believe In your own
Red Cross Just a little more than you
do. But should this be?
