The storm of controversy, which has
its center in Washington, is amusing
to the people generally, but it is a
mighty serious affair for Chairman
Lasker and the other members of the
United States shipping board, who are
trying to comipeto with the passenger
liners of other nations. And it is
likely to be equally serious for those
who favor and are trying to pass ship
Prohibition, like polities, makes
strange hedfellows. United in the at
tack on Chairman Lasker's policy are
the Anti-Saloon league, the dry leaders
in congress, the Association Against
Prohibition nd such eminent wets as
the men of the Busch family, brewers
of St. Louis. Tihe Busch men, indeed,
started the row by letters written
while on a shipping hoard vessel
9n which dIrinks were sold, op~enly andl
at mnoderate prices. Their wail, of
coturse, Is directed against a policy
that prevents their brewlng and selling
beer while It permits the selling of
German and IEnglish beer on govern
mlent-Owned ships. The Assoc'latlon
Against l'rohibit-lon insists that the
Volstead act be enforced to the limit.
In) the hope arnd e'xpectation that it
will thus be pr-oved so unpopular that
It will be rescinded. Wayne 11,
Wheeler, counsel for the Anti-Saloon
league, reiterates the league's p~osition
concerning the three-mile limit, hold
ing that liquor cannot legally he sold
on -Ameriean vessels anywhiere, but
,he says the Busch attack is "'sImply
an effort to discredit prohIbition mand
create sentiument for the sale of beer,"
and lhe thinks the shipping boamrd can
take care of Itself. P'rohmibit ion Coin
missioner I laynes admits there has
been a dlifference of opinion as to
whether the Volstead act apliesiC to
Vessels o)utsidle the three-mile limit.
That is does not so apply is held by
counsel for the shipping hoard, accord
Ing to Mr. l.asker, and lhe adds:
"Hot h fr-om the standp'i nt of legal

ship subsidy legislation is likely to get
mixed upi in the tangle. Senator Willis

about time for the "prohibit-ion navy"

excellent and timely legislative vehicle
for action to end the saile of liquor on
ships operated by the government,
Senator Jones of Washington. who
Is just as arid as Senator Willis, but
who is also chairman of the commerce
committee, made energetic protest
tgainst the Ohioan's proposal. He de

other senators who are pushing the

believe the latter measure can he put

When a plan has bleen settled on, the

First the attItudes of Great Britain

forget the war; to (10 away with inter

generally to base the new Europe
largely on economic interests and com

as desirous as tihe British for peace
and stable conditions, hlelhi-ve the war
cannot be forgotten ;and that interna

far as possihle. They want the new

Hygiene Board Holds Meeting.
The advisory board of the statQ bus
reau of child hygiene held a full and
interesting meeting in the office of the
state board of health. 'Tle purpose of
the, meeting was to discuss plans for
the expansion of the program for the
development of the Sheppard-Towner
work. Two additional baby nurses,
.iisses Ruth Moore and Laura Black
burn. have been secured. One of these
will develop the baby program and the
other will have under her supervision
the midwifery work of the state and
will endeavor to see that all midwives
are registered, and that they receive
and carry out the instructions of the
state board of health.
Dr. William Weston of Columbia
made a motion disapproving baby con
tests, which motion was approved by
the board. The reasons given for this
disapproval were that baby contests
bring out only the best babies of a
community and are of no educational
value to the mother.
Dr. R. E. Seibels of Columbia was
elected a member of the board and
also appointed as special adviser for
the development of Midwifery and ma

These bulletins will furnish general
rather than specific information.
Dr. Hayne said that the object of the
Sheppard-Towner bill was for the pro
tection of mothers and infants by edu
cating the public to tax itself in order
to protect mothers and infants.
Mrs. Dodd proposed a resolution to
instruct nurses, when planning baby
conferences, to present first the mat

to ask this organization to appoint
some local man to assist the nurses in
the examination of the babies. If it
is not possible for a local man to give

Commission Plans Hearing.

operation until a hearing can be held
by the state railroad commission on
the petition of the railroad company
to discontinue the two trains, accord
ing to the annouicement of Frank W.
Shealy, chairman of the commission.
The two trains were advertised by the
railroad company to be taken off, but
protests from both Columbia and Sum
ter brought the issuance of orders by
the commission preventing the discon
tinuance of the trains until a hearing
could be had. The commission's sched
ule, Mr. Shealy said, is now filled for
the next three weeks and the proposed
hearing, he said, can not therefore be
held until nearly a month. 'The Atlan
tic Coast Line railroad has been noti
fieg of the hearing andl ordered to con
tinue the trains in operation until far
No. 68 and No. 69 are local trains
running only between Columbia and
Sumter and if the railroad establishes
the fact that they are not carrying suf
ficient traffic to warrant their opera
tion it is practically certain that they
will be discontinued. The two trains,
the company also contends, duplicate
the service offered by other Atlantic
Coast Line trains and their dliscontinu
ance will therefore work no serious
hardship upon the.public.
