Wets Hold ProkiUliea Invalid But the wet lawyers have another theory. They do not contend that there were not thirty-eight States re corded in favor of ratification on Jan uary 18, but they do contend that tt e Secretary of State had to name the thirty-si* ratifying States upon whose vote he acted, and that If he did name them, and if Ohio was on" of the number, the proclamation issjed is invalid and a new one must be is sued. Verily this ia a situation of l?'tfR' niceties, and perhaps one with which only the Supreme Court of the United States can succeasfully deal. In fact nothing but pure technicality is in volved In the wet side of th-j argu ment. The plain, common-sense side of the controversy la the dry kide.Tha coun- ' try knows full well than on January 18, thirty-eight States nad raffled 1 the Eighteenth Amendment and that, on the strength of these r*Utl:at'.vns. the Secretary of State issued a formal proclamation to the eft-id that the necessary three-fourths of tlm Com monwealths having approve! of the measure. It would becomo iip?r*tKe in on* year. Wkvlly Ttfkmlnl Qaestiaa. The fact that one of tfc- thirty eight States may have withdrawn its ratification does not to the mind of the average individual, count for much. but. as already stated, it is a technical question of the veriest sort, and being wholly technical the courts will hare to give the ultimate answer. Wayne B. Wheeler, general coun sel for the Antlsaloon League, pre sented the dry side of the matter in a public statement today. He did not refer, It might be stated, to the premature shout of joy which his colleague, Mr. Dinwiddle, sounded the day after Ohio nad voted, but con fined himself to the issue now raised by th? people of Ohio "The proclamation." Mr. Wheeler said, "shows that thirty-six States had ratified by January H, 1919. It did not include all the States which had ratified by that date. Missouri and Wyoming also ratified the amend ment on January II. Two States can b? lost from the number and there would be no change in the date when the nation goes dry under the Fed eral Constitution. "The Secretary of State is custodian of the records relating to ratification. The court will look to these records to find when thirty-six States rati fied. The records prove that thirty eight ratified on January 1(, forty by January 17, forty-one by January 21. forty-two by January 22. forty-four by January 29. and forty-five by February 25. The Secretary of State cannot change the record. If so. he would have more power as a minis terial officer than the legislatures and Congress." Mr. Wheeler admits that If ten States out of the fifteen which have the right of referendum should repudiate the action of their legisla tures and if the Supreme Court should support the ruling of the Ohio su preme court the Eighteenth Amend ment would be defeated, but he re fuses to agree that the elimination of Ohio will postpone the dry season for another year.

S* PETTY OFFICERS IN NAVY TO GET RAISE Favorable action on recommenda tions for an increase of 30 per cent In the pay of naval offlcera and of 50 per cent in the compensation of enlisted men is foreshadowed by the agreement of the House Naval Affairs Subcommittee that, \to present fur ther resignations of petty officers, substantial increases are to be ac corded them. This course was determined upon following' the testimony of Rear Ad miral T. J. Cowie, of the navy pay corps. He warned the committee that "the morale of the navy is going to crack unless relief is had and had soon-" , Rear Admiral Cowie so convinced the committee of the urgent neces sity of increasing the morale of the navy by boosting the pay of the per-, sonnel that Congressman Oliver, of Alabama, initiated the recommenda tion for increased pay for petty offi cers. Mr. Oliver said he wasr sure the House would approve the in creases if the report of the subcom mittee received a unanimous vote of the full commlttce. Accordingly, the committee decided informally that chief petty officers be Instructed that the bill to be re ported will contain a provision In-' creasing their pay so as to average from >99 to $126 a month. Admiral Cowie submitted various tables and data showing the needs of officers and men. He pointed out that there has been nQ increase in pay for eleven years, while the coat of living has been getting higher all the time. Pursuant to an act of Congress au thorizing him to pay cash awards to civilians, employes of the navy, for beneficial suggestions adopted. Secretary Daniels has prescribed rules and regulations.
