TO ENFORCE DRY LAW.
Chief Executive Says Conditions
Enforcement Savor of Nation
Washington. President Harding, in
his annual message, delivered to Con
gress In person, deals with nearly a
score of subjects, chief among them
prohibition, farm credits, the transpor
tation problem, child labor and immigration.
President Harding tackled first the
farm problem, recommending credit
legislation by enlarging the powers of
the farm loan board to provide ample
agricultural and live stock "production
The executive announced his pur
pose to invite tne governors of tne
states and territories to an early con
ference with the federal executive au
thority with a view to adopting defi
nite policies of national and state co
operation In administering the prohi
bition laws. He says the day is un
likely to come when the prohibition
amendment will be repealed and that
the nation should adopt its course ac
He warned those who evade the pro
hibition law they are undermining the
moral fiber of the republic.
He characterized the present en
forcement as "a nationwide scandal"
and "the, most demoralizing factor of
our national life."
More extended credit for the farm
ers Is strongly urged by the executive,
who declares that the very proof of
helpfulness already given is the strong
est argument for the permanent estab
llshment of widened credits. He says
the farm loan bureau may well have
Its powers enlarged to provide ample
farm production credits, as well as en
larged land credits.
More Credit for Farmers.
Two constitutional amendments are
proposed. One would give Congress
authority over child labor and the oth
er would restrict the Issue of tax-ex
empt securities, which are declared to
be "drying up the sources of federal
taxation and encouraging unproductive
and extravagant expenditures by states
Registration of Aliens.
Enactment of legislation providing
for registration of aliens and for more
thorough examination of emigrants at
the ports of embarkation Is urged. The
President says there is a "recrudes
cence -of hyphenated Americanism
which we thought to have been
stamped out when we committed the
nation, life and soul to the World
War," and adds that advocates of rev
olution are abusing the hospitality of
American shores, "finding their delud
ed followers among those who take on
the habilaments of an American with
out knowing an American soul."
Registration of aliens, the President
adds, will enable the nation to guard
against abuses in Immigration, check
ing the undesirables whose irregular
coming is his first violation of the law
and, at the same time, will facilitate
the needed Americanizing of those
who mean to enroll as citizens.
Dealing with foreign affairs, Mr.
Harding tells Congress that American
relations are not only free from every
threatening cloud, but the country has
contributed its "larger Influence" to
ward making marked conflicts less
The President pointed to the arms
conference, to the recent Tacna-Arica
conference and to the Central Amer
ican conference now sitting in Wash'
Incton as evidences of' America's de-;
sire to promote International under
Would Abolish Railway Labor Board,
With regard to the transportation
problem, Mr. Harding proposes that
the railroad labor board be abolished
with the substitution of a labor divi
sion in the Interstate Commerce Com
mission with ample power to require
Its rulings to be accepted by both par
ties to a disputed question. The ex
ecutive also proposes that the law re
quire the carriers and their employes
to institute means and methods to ne
gotiate between themselves their con
stantly arising differences, limiting ap
peals to the government body to dis
putes of such character as are likely
to affect the public.
Calls Attention to Readjustments.
The President began his address by
calling the attention of Congress to
eeneral world conditions, which, he
said, still were seriously disturbed as
a result of the war. He asserted that
"the Inevitable readjustment of the so
cial and economic order Is not more
than barely begun," and continued :
"There never again will be precise
ly the old order ; Indeed, I know of no
one who thinks it to be desirable. For
out of the old order came the war It
self and the new order, established
and made secure, never will permit its
"It Is no figure of speech to say we
have come to the test of our civiliza
tion. The world has been passing Is
today passing through a great crisis.
The conduct of war itself Is not more
difficult than the solution of the prob
lems which necessarily follow. I am
not speaking at this moment of the
problem in its wider aspects of world
rehabilitation, or If international re
lationships. The reference is to our
own social, financial and economic
problems at home. These things are
not to be considered solely as problems
apart from all International relation
ship, but every nation must be able to
carry on for itself, else Its Internation
al relationship will have scant import
"Doubtless our own people have
emerged from the World War tumult
less impaired than most belligerent
powers; probably we have made larg
er progress toward reconstruction.
. . . Had we escaped the coal and
railway strikes, which had no excuse
for their beginning and less justifica
tion for their delayed settlement, we
should have done infinitely better. But
labor was insistent In holding to the
war heights and heedless forces of re
action sought the prewar levels, and
both were wrong.
Rail Strike Hurt Agriculture.
"The railway strike accentuated the
difficulty of the American farmer. The
first distress of readjustment came to
the farmer, and it will not be a read
justment fit to abide until he is re
lieved. The distress brought to the
farmer does not affect him alone. Ag
ricultural 111 fortune Is a national 111
fortune. . . .
"This Congress already has taken
cognizance of the misfortune which
precipitate deflation brought to Amer
ican agriculture. Your measures of re
lief and the reduction of the federal
reserve discount rate undoubtedly
saved the country from widespread
disaster. The very proof of helpful
ness already given is the strongest ar
gument for the permanent establish
ment of widened credit, heretofore
temporarily extended through the War
Enlarge Scope of Farm Loan Bureau.
"The farm loan bureau, which al
ready has proven its usefulness
through the federal land banks, may
well have Its powers enlarged to pro
vide ample farm production credits as
well as enlarged land credits. It Is en
tirely practical to create a division in
the federal land banks to deal with
production credits, with the limitations
of time so adjusted to the farm turn
over as the federal reserve system pro
vides for the turnover In the manufac
turing and mercantile world. Special
provision must be made for live stock
production credits and the limit of land
loans may be safely enlarged. Vari
ous measures are pending before you
and the best judgment of Congress
ought to be expressed In a prompt
enactment at the present session.
Appeals for Treaty Ratification.
"But American agriculture needs
more than added credit facilities. The
credits will help to solve the pressing
problems growing out of war Inflated
land values and the drastic deflation
of three years ago, but permanent and
deserved agricultural good fortune de
pends on better and cheaper transpor
tation. Here is an outstanding prob
lem demanding the most rigorous consideration."
