Washington, May 26.-After heated
discussion of the prohibition (luesttion
during .xhich Commissioner Kramer
was bitterly criticlsed and its vigor
ously defended the house today voted
an additional $200,000 for enforcement
of the Volstead act until July 1. Rep

was considering to permit retcntion

rema(lidci of the fiscal year becaure of
shortage of funds.
The Volstead amendment was adopt
ed 77 to :8, less than olie-fourth of
tle house mneiibership beling- on the
floor at the time, but another vote on
the Increase can be demanlded before
the bill is passel.
Even the members who favore: the
