ATTACKED IN SUIT
Preliminary Action Toward
Testing Its Constitution-
ality Is Taken
md0T CHIEF COUNSEL
Restriction on Manufacture of
"Near Beer" Is Also
By the Associated Press
New York, March in. Preliminary ac
1lon toward testing the constitutionality
of tho wartime prohibition act was talten
In tho flHng here today cf a stockholder's
suit In the Federal Court against the
James Kverard's breweries. The com
plainant, Joseph E. Ever'ard, ashed the
court for an order restraining the de
fendant from suspending Its manufac
turing activities May 1 next, and Its
pales July 1, as required by the federal
The complainant alleKCS that the
emergency prohibition clause of tho
agricultural bill, adopted November 21.
1018, Is unconstitutional as a measure
Intended to safeguard the national se
curity an ddefensc, the armistice hav
ing been signed, hobtllttles ceased and
orders given preliminary to reduction
of the military forces before that rtnte.
Tho complaint, drawn with .Kllhu
Root, as chief counsel, alleged that
when President 'Wilson proclaimed the
armistice, declaring, "the war thus
Eom to .an end." directed cessation of
Inductions into the army under the selec- i
tlvo service act, and announced plans
for restoration of normal peace condi
tions, thero was no emergency, military
or otherwise, calling for prohibition of
tho use of grains, cereals, fruits or other
food rjroducts in tho manufacture of
l,bcer or wine, or for forbidding the sale
o such products In order to conserve me
ijiatlon's man power and carry on the
war. Tho prohibitions, it Is charged,
were unnecessary and arbitrary and
wholly without any power conferred on
Congress by tho constitution.
Tho suit also attacks the regulations
cf the Internal Revenue Department rc
strld'lns the manufacture of "near beer"
prior to- May 1. to products not exceed
Ing.Si per cent in alcoholic content.
wit!) a reduction to one-half of one per
cent when tho commodity is onerca icr
' -..j mBtlnn- and limiting the i
ag4s, after May 1, to one-half per cent.
It ;is claimed that beer containing 23
pert-cent alcohol is not intoxicating, and
thqt Congress gave no authority for the
one'-natf per cent limitation.
The complainant, who resides in
Platnlleld, X. .!., is a minority stock
holder of the Kvcrard Breweries, locat
edin this city. He alleges that tho
directors of the company have made
ulana to comply with the wartime pro-
i,ihlloh act. thus destroying me cor-

ageous policy," seems more acceptable
to the looker-on.
There never was any justice In
"blaming It on France." America
camo hero with nothing but a formula.
Trance was skeptical to the core and
had no faith In the formula. She de- !
manded to be shown. America re-
torted with a threat to take the Con-
ference away from the French capl- .
tal. Following this logic, France '
yielded to tho American formula. 1
Then, America having contributed its '
formula, the delegates had a sudden I
feeling of emptiness. They began to
think of Fritz and his two possibili- j
They wanted such assurances as the 1
Rhenish republic, a strong Poland
and an independent Austria. If Amer-
ica had been really satisfied with her
formula, she should, and would, have j
fought these inconsistencies.
Belgium Gets No Aid
I have just returned from Brussels.
There is plenty of high authority for
saying the Belgians are "good sports,"
but even "good sports," when they
ask for bread, are unhappy at getting
a stone. The armistice is four months
old. Americans talk much about get
ting the world bayk to work, but they
have done nothing practical to get
Belgium back to work.
All of Belgium's machinery in In
Germany. The Allies and America
know where It is in the Krupp works,
fon example. But nothing has been
done yet to 'get it back to the country
where one in every three workmen is
a public charge.
Belgium asks humbly, that France
do this for her. France asks England
and England asks tho United States
and the "league of nations" leaves Bel
glum cold. Belgium's position in the
league is about as Important as Pan
ama's, although Belgium was the fifth
power in the world industrially before
the German hordes robbed her.
I learn that Belgium frankly ie
gards the league as a dictatorship of
the flvo great ppwers, who already
have divided Turkish Asia and Ger
man Africa among themselves under
the name of mandate. Belgium's
statesmen ask with genuine anxiety
if Belgium is to live or die.

during the past thirty days, especially during the
This week's Cadillac sales are without parallel in
the history of quality motor car merchandising in
Of course, many of these sales are traceable to the
normal demand for an automobile whose outstand
ing characteristic is permanence of value.
But there is, now, a powerful, new influence operat
ing in favor of Cadillac its official appointment as

permanence of value. , ' 9
The universal desire to own a Cadillac is a flattering
recognition of the car's goodness.
Our ability to deliver Cadillacs immediately to buy
ers in Philadelphia is a tribute to the preparedness of
the factory, whose entire capacity has been devoted
to the production of Cadillac passenger cars since a
few weeks after the signing of the armistice.
It is, at the same time, an expression of our confidence
in Cadillac and of our eagerness to give the Philadel
phia public immediate use of their chosen vehicle of
