Evangelist Invited to Ad

Prohibition Bill.
Billy Sunday was asked yesterday
to lake a trip over to Annapolis and
address the Maryland legislature,
now In session, on State-wide prohi
bition. Force? behind the movement
to make Maryland "bone dry" ?re re
sponsible for the invitation to Billy.
The evangelist hasn't yet'decided to
accept It. But It Is expected he?wlll?
if the legislature want? him to dis
cuss the problem.
Billy Sunday's persistent antagon
ism to the liquor traffic has led those
in Maryland who are trying to make
the State dry to believe that if he
talks on the "boose ?question" before
the legislature the effect wilt possibly
be passage of the prohibition meas
His antagonism to trie boose Inter
ests of the country ha? made It? ef-1
feet apparent in many sections. It
waa largely through Billy Sunday's
efforts In connection with his recent
I-os Angeles campaign that the coun
ty In which Ixvs Angeles Is situated
voted Itself dry. Billy conducted a
strenuous "antl-boose campaign" and
won hands down.

Billy Insists that he will "live long
enough to preach the funeral service
of the liquor traffic In thia country."
He declares that the recent action
ot Congress In submitting the pro

States is th* "final step*' to "drive
back Into the pits of perdition, the
dastardly liquor traffic, which has
wriggled itself out of the depths of
The evangelist insists that he will

land wants Billy to go ?to Annspolis
and tell It a "few things" about
booze and prohibition, he will go over
and preach his famous sermon on
?'Boose." This sermon, Billy say?,
