At the meeting of the board of

signed by nearly every one in the
district was filed asking that Brid-
' ges be dismissed because his wife
controls him and la, therefore, to
all purposes . and extent, road
overseer. There were other .
charges against Bridges, but this
was by tar the strangest one
which has probably ever been
..presented to the board.
The petition also asked that he .
be diachaVged because he employs ,

' WASHINGTON, D. C' June 28.
The senate committee on agriculture
has virtually redrafted many of the
principal provisions of the food con
trol bill which passed the house and
has been debated in the senate. Sena
tor Chamberlain "gave - notice yester
day that he will today move that the
measure as prepared by the senate
committee be substituted for the draft
bill that has been under debate and .
proceed with all expedition to pass
age.' He believes that this plan win -expedite
the passage of food contiol'
legislation and remove most of ' Hi e
obstacles that have been delaying Its
passage and prolonging the debate. -Senate
leaders admit that : the pro
hibition clauses la the new bill will;
tend to complicate matters and will,
preclude its passage - before July L
This new clause provides cinst tla
manufacture or lntoxtcczj " l!xuorsv
but It authorizes the president to per
mit making of wine. If he shall deem
this not undesirable., There Is also a
provision . that he may commandeer
an. distilled llquon listed as in stor
age In the bonded, warehouses. These
changes would permit; the -manufac '
ture of some wines but stni prohibit,
the making of beer and -distilled 11
Quors. -There la little change In tiie
provislott for comma&deertng dlstillefl

committee after the 'house provision (
had been beaten by a vote ot eight ta .
