It is estimated tit a tenth of the school population of. tim state is out of school because of the rising flood waters and the crevasses in many sections. While the missing of a few months t0f school in itself&apos; would not seem to have such great effect on the individual the schools will be crippled to some extent next year, adding to the losse In time and possibly providing discour- agement, which may result in many leaving school too early. In some of tim North Louisiana par- ishes, the school teachers, prineipals, superintendents, and pupils alike have deserted the schools after the furni- tuge was placed on second floors, or on scaffolding to save as much as possible from water damage. In one North Louisiana parish, a Echool tax election was to have been held this month to provide funds for operating the schools next year, but the levee b,reaks have made it impos- tible to hold the election unless the ,voters go to the pools in boats. In some of the parishes which are not yet flooded, the schools have been closed as a precautionary measure.

"Hundreds of cattle will die.of star- vation and acres of vegetables will be lost If immediate steps are not taken to can them.

It is imperative that these cards he filled and the cards returned to Wash- lngton. When these cards are received some parents amy feel that because the child is registered the blanks need not be filled and the card returned, but it is important that the record of the re- gistration be confirmed. We earnestly request that every person receiving a ! card return it to Washington with the proper information. These cards require no postage. Simply fill them in and drop in your letter box.

The crest of the flood is still to come and unless scaffolding is built high enough to reach above the expected high water, all will be lost. The honey crop at this season of the year is from the tree tops and vines in low lands which reach above the floods. This is the only source from which beekeepers may expect a crop when they return to their homes after the water recedes. "l)uring the flood of 1922, 1 know of dozen lw+keepers wire took this pre- caution, and upon returning home found enough honey in the hives to sell for enough cash to carry the family through another season," says Mr. Davis; "The Ias will be working while you are away. Be sure to place ahove the brood chamber four or five upers for storage room filled with drawn combs or full sheets of coml foundation and the bees will fill them re capacity if the weather is dry en. ough to allow them to fly. Do this, and they will work when all other activities have ceased." The La. Cane Crop The Weather during the week hag again turned warm which is favorable for the crops; no rain has fallen and <mdltlons are good. The high stage of the' Mississippi river is demanding careful attention from planters throughout tim sugar dis trict. The levees protecting the sugar district are intact and notwithstanding the increasing height of the river are reported holding firm. The serious river situation necessitates great care and attention and is diverting the planters from their normal course to the renderin gel assistance" in holding back the high water. The conditions are good and pros- peers are favorablee--Lg 1lanter. STEPS TAKEN TO INFORM ALL HOLDERS t Washington. D. C. May 9---Seeretary Mellon has called for payment on Nov- ember 15, 1927, all outstanding Scored Liberty Ian bonds. Interest on these bonds will cease on November-15. 1927. Approximately $1,7000,000,000 of these honda are now outstanding. While the bonds will be paid on Nov- ember 15. 1927. it is quite probable that during the next six months the Treasury will extend to the holders of dm Liberty Loan bonds an opportunity to exchange them for other Government securities. No announcement has as yet been made as to the type of security to be offered in exchange, or the date on which the exchange offer may be expected. Tile Treasury explains that the terms of the bonds require that a lnotiee be given to the public six months I i in advance of the redemption date. I Tile Secretary's announee.nlent, there- fete, does not mean that the bonds will be paid at the present time. but merely places the holders on notice that their bonds will be redeemed on November 15, and will cease to bear interest on that date. If holders of Second Liberties desire to have their bonds redeemed, they should present them for payment on November 15, 1927, but if they desire other Government-obligations in place of their Seconds they should watch for further announcement and notify their I bank to keep them informed of any ex- I change offering that may later be made by the Treasury. In 1917 and 1918, it will be recalled, when the Government was lling bonds of the several Liberty Loans, a nation- wide campaign was conducted, every available facility being used to reach the pablie and sell the bonds. The situa- tion is now practically reversed, and the Government is preparing to redeem or exchange some of these bonds. While no such elaberate canvass is contempla- ted for the redemption notice as was undertaken in 1917, the Treasury never the less Is making a.spectal effort to inform the holders of Second Liberty Loan bonds that their bonds will cease to bear interest on November 15th. Banks and trust companies throughout the country will be asked to coporate with the Government in spreading the news of this call for redemption, and in advising the holders of bomls that the Treasury will probably offer new securities in exchange. For the first time the radio will be used by the Gov- ernment as a means of reaching mil- lions of bondholders. An announcement will shortly be broadcast from the lar- ger radio stations of the country. The importance of aequainting bond- holders with the fact that their bonds have been called for payment is em- dtasiTd by the Treasury's records of previous calls for redemption or ex- change. Thse recor{Ls show that there are still outstnnding at the present time. in the hands of the public, aimut $30.tI,000 in Government securities ulmn which interest has ceased. Includ- ed in this amount are $3,10,000 in Vie- tory notes which ceased to bear Interest in 1922 and 1923. There are also out- standing $14,500,00 in temlmrary bonds of the several Liberty Losns. to wlflch were attached only a Limited number of interest coupons. The last coupons matured some seven years ago. The holders of thesetemporary bonds have neglected to exchange them for per- manent bonds having the full number of interest coupons attached, and until such exchange is made they have no means of collecting the interest. In the face of these facts, the Treasury is es- pecially anxious that the present an- nmmcement reach as many Second Ltb- arty Loan bondholders as IVls possible to reach through the press, the radio. and the banks of the country. The Second Loan, which wan issued In November, 1917, wan the sm,l large loan floated by the Govermueut during the World War, and while this loan does not mature until 1942, the condition of the money nmrket and f the vernment s finances makes it I- sible and advisable to call the bonds for redemption in Noyember, /No plausible I been fotmd, Let's hope that the heay rain and| strong wind doesn't set in.
