up to one last round of merriment.
It Is said that 20,000 people will

early. Thousands scrambled aboard
trains and trolleys bound for the
Monumental City, and the roads
they were black with moving automo

At Union Station last night ten

Taxi companies are hiring addi

to be parked at Union Station to meet
trains returning from Baltimore.
Every available automobile was
pressed into service by those who are
unfortunate enough not to own a mo-

Police officials made no bones about
the situation today. They admitted
that Washington has been dry in
name only and that the "bone dry"
law, far from eliminating the alcohol
evil, has only served to increase the
price and made it harder to secure.
That's all. The police do not believe
that even after tomorrow bootlegging
will stop. It will not, they say.

the stuff against the arid days to

my DRY WAVE

While the "ultra" prohibitionists
in Congress plan to begin today a
fight to keep the nation dry under
tho war-time prohibition act from
this midnight until constitutional

January 16, In the opinion of some
of the best informed persons in Wash
ington, wines, beer and whiskey will
be sold legally again at the end of
three months. It is believed demobi
lization will be completed within that
The President's recent statement
leaves no doubt that unless some
Congressional action is taken to pre
vent him doing so, he will lift the
war-time ban as soon as he can de
clare demobilization completed. As
the law now stands the action would
remove the restriction on whiskey and
other hard liquors, as well as wines
and beers. There is nothing In the
war-time prohibition act to authorize
the President to differentiate between
intoxicants, the sale of which was
legal before the act becomes effective.
Drys Begin Fight Today.
As the first step in the new dry
campaign. Congressman Charles H.
Randall of California intdoduced in
the House this afternoon an emerg
ency peace measure to prohibit
removal from bond or transportation
in interstate commerce any of the
70,000,000 gallons of distilled spirit
now stored between the date of tho
President's proclamation and the date
of constitutional prohibition.
The prohibitionists believe this
plan will prevent a respite for the

ably will be exhausted by that time,

50-50 PUN SAVED
The half-and-half plan of appro
priations for the District was saved
at the last moment today when tie
House conferees on the District bill,
after a persistent deadlock, yielded
flnally in favor of it.
As a compromise, the Senate con
ferees receded on the Kellar amend
ment. The Kellar amendment pro
vides the payment of $3,820 to Thomas
W. and Alice V. Keller for ground
taken and damages on account of
condemnation proceedings some years
ago. The proceedings were the rs
sult of certain street improvements
made by the District.
The agreement was r.eached at a
final conference between the two
houses shortly after noon today.
Rather than delay action on the Dis
trict bill, which would prove fatal,
the House conferees yielded their op
position to the half-and-half. The
conference report will be submitted
to the House later today for final ac
tion. It is understood the House will
agreed to the half-and-half plan as
the only alternative. The conference
report then will go to the Senate
which will adopt it immediately.

Police are searching today for a
young negro who attacked and rob
bed Mrs. Bessie Gleason, thirty-six
years old, of 14 Nicholson street
northwest, in Rays Woods, between
Blaire road and Nicholson street,
early this morning.
Mrs. Gleason was' walking through
the woods to the car line from her
home when the negro, who is de
scribed as being five feet two or three
inches in height, thick set, very dark
skin, and wearing a blue serge suit,
approached her. He spoke to her, and

He refused, saying, "I'll get that
later." He then struck her over the
head with a club, rendering her un
conscious. Following his attack the negro
took her black leather purse, which
contained one J20 billr some change
and a door key.
When Mrs. Gleason regained con
sciousness she went to the home of a
neighbor who called tip the police.
It was the opinion of the police
that the assailant came to the city
on a Takoma Park car. They say the
man was a rough looking sort of indi

a cap pulled over his eyes.

in the navy yard. He was notified by

Criticising former Senator Root for
changing his position on Article X of
the League of Nations covenant, Sen
atory Gerry of Rhode Island, in a
speech to the Senate today declared
IToot's judgment seems to have been
warped by partisan bias.
"In March," said Gerry, ''Root was
willing to support Article X for a
flve-year period, and in June he is
not willing to support it at all. I
cannot forego the thought that when
he speaks in favor of the Knox reso
lution the partisan purpose of which
is so apparent, his loyalty to his own
party may have biased his Judgment.
"Such a reservation as he suggests
regarding Article X would mean that
we reject the treaty."
All objections raised by league
critics are in Gerry's opinion wholly
without foundation, he said.
