RUM SHIP IS BEWITCHED But the Hoodoos Prove to Be Coast Guard Sleuths All between rum runner* and roast guardsmen aren't fought in the open. Much of the conflict is a sar of wits better the liquor peddlers and the under-cover men . . . Here is the th.rd of six articles in The Times series on Running in the Rum Runners." BY MORRIS GILBERT NEA Service Writer WASHINGTON, April 10.—It's an old adage of the en forcement service that if you can "plant" an undercover man in a liquor gang, you're likely to get action. It has been done, and still is being done. It takes nerve, and wits, and luck. Government agents have come to violent and very unhappy ends through mislaying this com _ bination.

Time enough fi has passed—so jV'V'’ they sa y in en ffjL < forcement quar tell the story of the last cruise of the storm-battered auxiliary schooner Pegasus, out of Havana with rum to peddle. ''Slim" Dolan tells it. As he talks—though he doesn't say it— you never forget, that every mo ment of that cruise he and his mate. Pete Busch, also of the coast guard, balanced their lives on the footing of a very thin tightrope. tt tt tt IT was a night male from st art to finish, and me and Pite certainly helped to make it so. We were the worst they ever hired aboard that, lugger. It was our business to be. "Workin’ against them all the time, it’s a winder they landed any booze at all. But they did, in spite of all we could do to hold ’em back—till we got ’em in the end. ‘ And they kept wandering all the time why in thunder every last little thing seemed to go wrong on that ship. Tt had been a home, the crew said, till that cruise. Then all their luck left ’em and the ship was a mad house.” ‘•Slim" chuckled. ‘We could have told 'em why things kept happening,” he said Only they never thought to ask us." "You see," Slim continued, “Pete and I had orders to proceed to Havana, and get aboard a rummy somehow anyhow' —and hang on till we turned 'em in. Nice, easy assignment, what? ‘When we reached towm w'e stayed at—let’s say the Navada hotel. It's a pretty tough dump down by what they call Muele Luz, not far from the customs house— and all sorts of places. Full of rummies and their agents, that hotel w'as. And hke nothing on earth so much as a mining town in boom-times. "Fights and booze and parties, and more fights and more booze, night and day. All it, needed was Helen Twelvetrees and George Bancroft to make it just like the pictures. an WELL. Pete and me hung around and played dumb, and sure enough, pretty soon a guy comes up and asks us do w'e want a job. So of course we said W'e did.

It was dead calm, and Pete got inspired monkeying with his motor. All of a sudden she gives a ter rible cry like a dying mule, the fly-wheel cants up on an angle of sixty degrees, and the whole thing shakes like she’s going crazy. “All Pete had done was loosen all the bolts he could lay a span ner on. It seems a little risky, now I look back at it, but the Old Man never seemed to tumble. "What w'e wanted then w'as for the Pegasus to hang there, unable to get out to open sea again. We figured sooner or later the old striped flag w'ould show' up on the horizon. Then w'e could find some w'ay to spill the beans. n tt "T)UT the Old Man—he w'as a 13 squarehead w'ould have none of it. He was all for keeping moving. So w'e had the whole crew perspiring over that fly wheel and cursing Pete, trying to shake the thing dow'n into its moorings again. “When the skipper just about had decided to heave Pete over board to the likeliest looking shark in the neighborhood, up Then there follows, between bot tles 10 and 12, a pleasant reaction, marked with perspirntion and a feeling of friendliness to all present. A detailed discussion on business affairs is included. The new beer is discussed from all angles. There is a general lull in the drinking, caused both by a feel ing of fullness and the inclination to talk. In fact, that sandwich you ordered ten to twelve bottles ago tastes pretty good. You order an other and. perhaps, a bowl of soup. Let’s Talk About Beer Bottle 12 doesn't come up for a long time. In fact, you go to some other place for a different brand of beer. Bottles 13 and 14 start the con versation all over again. The chief topic is the difference in taste be tween the two brands, the price ot beer and the fact that if you had consumed that much home-brew’, you’d long since been hanging from a chandelier. It is a task to down No. 15 im mediately after 14. In fact, there is another lull—this time much longer and much quieter. There is a dull throb at the temples. It's the start of anew beer headache. It's not the jittery headache of days gone by. Just a dull tom-tom throb that is there to warn you to halt. Always the Gentlemen But. at that stage of the game, the brilliant idea dawms that, perhaps, a couple more bottles w’ill do away with that headache. \That accounts for Nos. 16 and 17. Still, there is no tendency’ to sing. You're getting loggy now. Sleep would be easy, but you ought to drink one more before you leave. You do. That's No. 18.

Day after day passed, and we still had liquor aboard and couldn't seem to make any contacts —no radio, of course. “We cruised around up the east coast. By this time things had got so bad between Pete and his old motor that the skipper barred him from coming within ten yards of it. “A fellow on a shore boat had put it right, as well as he could, and pretty soon when another boat came out. the skipper hired the engineer off it and sent Pete ashore. Os course, that was jake with us, because Pete could report and get a cutter on our trail. “I\yfEANWHILE, I managed to IVI. lose most of our store of coffee overboard, and the grum bling w'as terrible.

Milton banker, who had to promise to be good" before he could become Democratic ; Speaker of the house in the 1933 ■ legislature, is a dry delegate to the state convention on prohibition re peal June 6. i Thus, Craw'ford uot only repudi- I ates his party's pledge to wipe out the dry statute, bui also administers a covert snub to Governor Paul V. McNutt and R- Earl Peters. Demo cratic state chairman, for McNutt has urged the organization to w'ork for election of wet delegates. The Speaker's political defection roused considerable unfavorable comment today among Indianapolis Democrats. He has an unquestioned right, they admit, to hold dry views in the role of a citizen. However, as the holder of such an important ; legislative post, he is guilty of im propriety, they point out. 'in going to such an extreme as to become a dry delegate. Ability Is Conceded Before the Democrats caucused at the start of the 1933 legislature, it was admitted that Crawford's gen eral competence made him an ideal j choice as Speaker. He proved his ; ability as “master of the pack" by cracking the whip when recalcitrant ; representatives threatened to bolt j the party standard on the legisla- I tive program laid down by the Mc- Nutt “high command." However, the Democrats w : ere pledged to Wright law repeal and a beer control bill and Crawford's aridity was attested by votes against Wright repeal in tw r o previous ses sions. On Crawford's promise not to hold up wet legislation through au thority vested in the Speaker of the house, McNutt assented to his can didacy. Even after the administration beer bill passed on its stormy way through both houses and it became Crawford's duty as Speaker to sign it, he voiced tacit disapproval. York “Greatly rieased" “It gives me no pleasure to sign this bill,” he assertod. “I do so only because it is my duty as Speaker oi the house." L. E. Y'ork, superintendent of the Indiana Anti-Saloon League, said today he was “greatly pleased" over the candidacy of Crawford and the four other delegates named in Wayne county. The other delegates ar# W. C. Dennis, Earlham college president; Mrs. Charles Teetor. Ha i gerstown; John Holaday and Frank McFail, Richmond. Democratic State Chairman Pe ters said he had no comment to make for publication. LIGHTNING BOLT FATAL State Youth Instantly Killed When Struck During Storm. By United Pres* MT. VERNON.

Heizer is believed to have incurred internal injuries in addition to a crushed left hand, a severe cut on the head and an in jury of the left eye.

PAGE 3 REPEAL OF DRY LAW BY END OF YEAR IS LIKELY States Speed Ratification Plans: 'Beer Debauch’ Predictions Fail. BY WALKER STONE Times Sprrial W riter WASHINGTON. April 10 Repeal of national prohibition by the end of this year appeared possible today with ratification machinery being speeded up throughout the country. The great nation-wide beer de bauch. which professional days pre , dieted would follow legalization of brew and cause a popular swing of sentiment back toward prohibition, | has failed to materialize so far. The new beer, many people have ! found, is, as congress decreed, “non intoxicating in fact." Michigan, one time a dry strong hold. today becomes the first state i to ratify repeal, as 100 delegates— j 99 wet and 1 dry—meet in conven- I tion in Lansing to register the over j whelming mandate given by Mich | igan voters one week ago. Two weeks from Tuesday. Wis consin will become the second state to ratify, when the fifteen elected wet delegates meet at Madison. 28 States Complete Action Twenty-eight states have com pleted action on their convention legislation. In addition to Michigan and Wis consin. sixteen others have fixed dates for election of delegates this jyear, and seventeen others are ex i ported to follow suit. - States which have set election for j this year are: Rhode Island.

Consider Pinchot Veto The legislatures of only three | states—Georgia, Kansas and North | Dakota —which were in session at the time the repeal resolution was submitted adjourned without act ing. Perlhsylvania’s legislature will act this week on Governor Pinchot s j veto of its convention bill. I The only other gubernatorial veto j thus far was in the much more | arid state of Alabama, and the veto I was overridden by an overwhclm | ing vote. State Votes on June 6 Governor Paul V. McNutt's official proclamation, setting June 6 as the date for election of delegates to the Indiana convention for repeal of the eighteenth amendment, is being de livered today to clerks of the ninety tw'o counties of the state. The official text sets out both the federal and state laws calling for the convention. Delegates will be chosen as wet or dry, the total number to be elected being 329. A vote of 165 will be needed to deter mine whether Indiana is for or against repeal.
