EXPECTWILSON TO SAVE BOOZE Advocates of the proposal to repeal the wartime prohibition act were much encouraged yesterday by an un confirmed report that President Wil son will soon Issue a proclamation de claring demobilisation of the army has been completed. This action on the part of the President would prevent the war-time dry law from becoming effective July 1. The report was that the President had been advised of the strong senti ment In Congress against the repeal, and that he had determined to exer cise the authority granted him under the law to nullify the July 1 act Jus tification of this course is seen by the wets In the announcement of Gen. March, chief of staff, yesterday, that the last of the drafted and National Guard men have been started home ward from France, and that only reg ulars remain abroad. The statement of Representative Fitzgerald, of Massachusetts, to the House Judiciary Committee Thursday, that he had been Informed by the War Department that demobilisation of combatant troops win have been completed by June 12. also is pointed to as a farther reason why the need for war-time prohibition will hare ceased before the data for It to be come operative. ... ?, . ? , Soldier and Boy, Slayers, Each Sentenced 20 Years Colored Yank Killed Man Who Struck Him with Chair.
