SPEEDY RETURN OF BEER URGED ON COMMITTEE Witnesses Assert Revenue Will Be High, Industry’ Will Be Aided. By United Pres* WASHINGTON, Dec. 9.—Legali zation of beer that could be sold at a nickel a glass would increase em ployment and produce significant new revenue, the house ways and means committee was told today by anti-prohibitionists, arguing for quick modification of the Volstead act. Joseph Dilworth of Pittsburgh, representing a banking and indus trial subcommittee set up at one of President Hoover’s conferences, told the committee beer legalization would stimulate capital expenditure. He estimated Volstead act modifi cation would mean a capital expen diture of between $40,000,000 and $50,000,000 in New York, Milwaukee, St. Louis and Pittsburgh alone. Sees Big Revenue George P. McCade, representing (he associated producers of cereal beverages, said that modification along the line of 2.75 per cent beer and a tax of $5 a barrel would yield the federal government a first year revenue of $200,000,000. It would permit sale of beer at 5 cents a glass, he asserted. Dillworth told the committee, which hopes to round a modification bill into shape for house action next week, that indirect expenditures as a result of a change in the Vol stead act would run more than $150,000,000 in the four cities. Railroads, steel mills, and num erous other industries would be aided, he said. Representative Horr (Rep., Wash.) asked immediate modification, but advised the committee to keep the beer tax low, “to discourage the consumption of hard liquor.” Coopers Want Return Edward Verdi, Hoboken, N. J., Associated Cooperage Industry, asked beer legalization on behalf of his industry, to stimulate business and employment. Representative Amlie (Rep., Wis.) urged revision of the prohibition laws, but recommended that each state be allowed to deal as it saw fit with alcoholic limitations of beer and wine. D. C. Fenner of the Mack-Inter national Motor Truck Corporation said that beer legalization would “revive” the truck industry and “return to employment thousands of skilled workmen.” "We in the motor trek industry,” he said, “can see benefits for all and burdens for none, and we ask for the return of an industry which for twenty years played such a prominent part in the inauguration and development of the motor truck.” 28-Ycar-Old Shoes Still Worn B<j United Press ALBANY, Ore., Dec. 9.—Joe Wake field is wearing a pair of shoes he bought 28 years ago in Kansas.

Carter, “is the ace of hearts. When I play that, don't trump it." “Yes, my dear," Mrs. Carter replies, as if she had learned a thrilling new fact. By Timet Special NEW YORK, Dec. 9.—The thing for a wife to do is to hold her tongue—admittedly one of the world’s most difficult feats. The thing for a husband to do is to ad mit he is not infallible, and then to discuss his own errors and those of his wife in as pleasant a tone as he would discuss movies with his pretty blond secretary. It is as simple as that—this prob lem of husband and wife playing bridge together without endanger ing the home. It isn't even neces sary for the play to be universally successful. Games can be lost, tournaments may come and go without the cap ture of a single cup, and still all will be harmony in the home if these simples rules are observed. The system has been tested fo'r years by Lieutenant and Mrs. Rob ert F. Carter, entrants in both the national team-of-four and pair championships of the American Bridge League, played at the Ritz- Carlton. They are a young couple—he is a West Point graduate, class of ’l9 and they have been married twelve years. They have been playing bridge eleven and one-half years. It was six months after the wed ding before Mrs. Carter got around to teaching the lieutenant auction. For the first few years they fol lowed the convential husband wife path. In other words, they quarreled over the bridge table. Then the great fight dawm*i. They made the very routine, simple discovery that if they would only be as decent to each other as they would be to any casual acquaint ance, friend or stranger, they couldn’t possibly get into a fight How to Play Bridge and Remain Married For the Husband 1. Don’t yell at your wife. 2. Don’t blame your wife for your errors. 4. Don’t think that a mar riage certificate constitutes appointment as a chain gang boss. 5. When you teach her anew bid, or point out an error, don’t sputter, but simply talk intelli gently. For the Wife 1. Don’t insist on the last word. 2. Let your husband “dom inate” the play and bid the psychics. 4. Don’t always remind him you taught him how to play— he’s probably taught you much more since 5. Return courtesy with cour tesy and a display of temper— justified or unjustified—with a smile, but not an insincere or “superior” smile. over who should have bid what and why. “My husband is the most courte ous man in the world,” Mrs. Carter explained today. “He had only to be himself and everything worked out fine. "“Of course, I had a part to play. I had to learn to control my tongue when everything seemed to go w r rong. “I had to learn to keep from get ting excited over trivial matters and THE INDIANAPOLIS TIMES to realize that sometimes I might be in the wrong.” “We both make errors,” Lieuten ant Carter acknowledged. “I learned to admit that I might on occasion be less than perfect. I even got to the point where I would discuss my own errors as fluently as Mrs. Car ter’s. “And when I learned to talk of hers as tolerantly, as understand ingly as my own, the battle was o * r.” “Os course,” said Mrs. Carter, “we still have our moments. But they are only moments. We can’t avoid a few post-mortems, but we have the post-mortens at once, and not afetr we get home.” And so today, though they rank far down in the national tourna ments, they are still each other’s favorite bridge partner. Therein they differ from nearly all the play ers who enter the big tournaments. P. Hal Sims and Mrs. P. Hal Sims are both in the tournament, but they are on different teams. Ely Culbertson and his wife are not playing together, though they have done so in the past. “Down at Camp Meade many of ficers and their wives play together in our frequent duplicate matches,” said Mrs. Carter, “but few of them get along as well as we do. And it’s so very simple.” The Carters have opinions on other matters. They think New York's champion players are among the world's rudest people. Down in Maryland people exchange intro ductions when they shift tables at a duplicate match. They are more likely to glare in the big tournaments —and the Car ters don’t like that.

To be rid of a Cold ABORT (with lemon juice ) Often a cold that you thought all gone—comes back! That's because the remedy used does not drive the cold symptoms from the system. Try cold abortion and you'll find those stubborn colds broken-up and gone within a few hours. To abort a cold, squeeze two full-sized lemons in a glass of very hot water, to be taken preferably at bedtime. Two hours before, start taking a tablet of Pape's cold compound each hour. After the third tablet take the lemon juice and hot water without sugar, and go to bed, well-covered. Sound sleep will follow, and the cold will be aborted by morning. The lemon juice treatment never fails, but you must have the cold compound to clear the head, dry the passages, and allay any fever. Any druggist has Pape’s cold compound; it is perfect ly safe, and a tablet will check a cold at any time.—Advertisement. CAST BOTTLES IN SEA Passengers Take Up New Fad on Canadian Liners.
