News comes that Y-1c Pat W. Hardy is on his way home from Eniwetok, having left there the 18th of October.

He will arrive in San Francisco early next week and probably arrive home within a week.

Ernest M. Black is the New Tax Commissioner
Ernest M. Black was named this week by Gov. Kerr to be a member of the State Tax Commission which has charge of collection of all state taxes.
Ernest was raised in Caddo, graduated from our schools; he became familiar with all state financial affairs when he worked with the state examiner and inspector, later became budget officer, and is considered a good authority on state financial affairs. We think this a splendid appointment; having worked with Ernest, we know he knows his stuff in state affairs.
