strangers at the Seamanrs Church In

afternoon the two strangers proffered a

"No, don't give that to me here,"
Malowski is said' to have whispered.

regarding the smuggling of drugs into

Department of Justice ruling it has de
veloped that the Antl-Saloon League
will renew its flght before Congress to
eltminate from the Volstead law the
provision relating to sale of liquor by
prescription and that its guns will be
opened against beer. Meanwhile, the
tcramble continues for places on the
touse Judiciary Committee. which may
settle the beer issue definitely and at
tempt to tighten up all the loose joints
in the Volstead law. There are eight
vacancies to be equally distributed be?
tween Republicans and Democrats. If
all the seats were given to wets the I
committee still would be dry, but Re
publican leaders assertcd that the
party, in making up committee assign
ments, would take no backward step on
the question of prohibition.
Chalrman Volstead expressed the
view to-day that the raembership
weuld be made up without regard to
the beer development. A recent check
