Bishop James Cannon, jr., of the
Methodist Church, issued a statement
here yesterday which denied that he
personally was in Washington the last
10 days directing an effort to secure
adoption by the House of Representa
tives of the Senate amendment to the
deficiency bill which would appropriate
$24,000,000 additional to secure better
prohibition enforcement.
The bishop said that many newspaper
stories recently had charged he was in
Washington directing pressure upon
House members and sought passage of
the amendment.
Bishop Cannon passed through Cin
cinnati today en route from Nashville
to Washington. He said the only time
he had been in Washington the last 10
days was for a few hours last Thursday
and that he did not see or talk with any
House members.

The situation of a captain of the air

readjustment. But one scene pertains
to the days of combat.
Clark Gable capably handles the role !
of the chap who, though having moral
objections to war as a social remedy, i
joins the air corps, makes a great
record as an ace and then is dropped
down in his old life, unfitted for the
deadly routine of business and social
life, fettered by conventional require- I
ments and a life of seeming unimpor
tance after days of importance and
glamour at the front. Os a sud
den he marries the sweatheart of a
I brother of the air corps, forgetful of j
i the girl whom he loved and who waited
for him. Domestic: troubles ensue, and *
indifferent, to all life generally, he loses !
one job after another. At last, how- j
ever, the situation is cleared, his wife
departs and he is freed to take up life
anew as a commercial aviator and to
marry the girl who understood him.
The story would have been more con
sitently entertaining had subjects not j
germane been omitted: the war scene
and prologue lifted out and the post
war situations properly embellished.
Peggy Allenby, who has been seen j
here to advantage in other plays, takes
the part of the disillusioned wife of the j
“misfit*’ veteran, and handles the role
with finesse. Miss Dennis More cast!
as one who understood the ace, shows a ,

Arnold, formerly with the National
