3 MORE DRYS FLAY PROHIBITION HEADS Borah, Brookhart and Norris Join in New Attack on En * , forcement Method. By the Associated Press. Three more “dry” memtrrs of the Senate have spoken their mind con cerning present prohibition enforcement conditions. Borah of Idaho, Norris of Nebraska and Brookhart of lowa, all Republicans, allied with the independent faction, have entered the current controversy with expressions of dissatisfaction with existing enforcement agencies. Borah, who was President Hoover’s most prominent campaigner on the pro hibition issue, late yesterday assailed the entire personnel charged with mak ing the Volstead act effective, and as serted that as now constituted it would never enforce the law. Norris Cites Political Power. Norris, who supported Gov. Smith In the presidential campaign, declared that efforts to suppress the alcohol traffic have never been made in good faith in numerous sections of the country. En forcement officers, he said, have many times overlooked cases of men with political influence making fortunes through traffic In Illicit liquor. Brookhart came to the support of Sen ator Harris of Georgia, in the latter's demand for the removal of Judge Paul J. McCormick from President Hoover’s law enforcement commission. Referring to McCormick’s assertion that search of private homes without warrants was an outstanding evil of present enforcement activities, Brookhart expressed im patience "with making the Government the criminal in enforcing the law and many heroes out of bootleggers.” Want Crime Report. The present controversy was aroused by expressions of dissatisfaction with the policy of secrecy maintained by the Crime Commission and demands for a report from the group before any more funds are appropriated for its upkeep. Harris is the author of a resolution asking President Hoover to procure such a report and transmit it to Congress. In this he is supported by Glass of Vir ginia, a Democrat, although the latter does not share his views regarding Judge McCormick. Borah's statement dealt with the pro posed report and he said that “the com mission will not tell us anything we do not know, either as to law or as to the facts.” He added that even should a report be forthcoming, “we will still be back to the one proposition, and that is that with the present personnel noth ing will be accomplished.” FALLING ROOF KILLS GIRL Two Bisters Hurt in Accident Caused by Heavy Snow.
