Federal Officials Ask for Fleet
to Crush Smuggling From

NAVANNAH, Go. hriih 37.
With national prohibition less than
three years old. Savannah and Its
contiguous territory southward as
far as Brunswick. hoaeyosmbed
with scores of narrow- coves and
inlets, has become the clearing goint
for the contraband liquor supply of
fdur States.
Along the swampy Georgia coast
"mystery" ships plying the trade
from the British West Indies drop
their anchors almost nightly cnd
unload into smaller vessels which
dart furtively from the protection
of the darkened shores on signal,
thotasands of cases of ' European
liquors, wines and cordials.
This contraband cargo finds its
way further up the coast in boats.
overland by automobile and by
varioug other methods to the lock
era and cellars of those able to pay
the price.
Federal prohibition agents work
ing the territory estimate that ap
proximately 10,000 cases of this
liquor is unloaded and distributed
along the Georgia coast on each trip
of the ships which receive their car
goes from the Bahama Islands, sixty
miles off Miami, Fla. These trips.
according to the officers, vary fronw
two to three times a week.
Goes to supply Four States.
Most of the liquor unloaded on
the Georgia coast goes to Georgia.
North Carolina, South Carolina and
Tennessee. The whiskey runners
deal in wholesale quantities largely.
From their distributees the stuff is
retailed to the consumer and the
small Sootlegger throughout the ter
ritory covered.
Aocording to Federal enforcement
officers, the Georgia coast, particu
larly that portion south of Savannah
to Brunswick, is favorable for the
illicit whiskey trade, first, because
it is within easy sailing distance of
the Bahama Islands. a part of the
British dominions, where the liquor
stocks can be loaded without inter
ference, and, second, because it is
honeycombed with convenient coves
and Inlets.
Federal agents are frank to may
that so long as they are compelled
to depend on catching the liquor
after it has been landed on the
coast after removal from the ves
seis which bring it in, they ean.
not hope for a great measure of
success in breaking up the traffic.
They declare the only solution of
the problem is for the Government
to put into commission a large
number of submarine chasers or
other speedy boats.
Smuggler Arrange Distribution
These could watch the liquor
ships, they may, from the time
they are loaded at Nassau. Bimini
and other points in the West In
dies. and hang to their trail until
an attempt is made to unload the
cargo of liquor inside the three
mile limit, or it is actually unload
ed outside the three-mile limit and
brought within that radius by the
smaller boats, which make their
headquarters in the coves and in.
rt was after reaching this conclu
sion that Fred Dismukes, national
prohibition director for Georgia,
recommended to Prohibition Com
missioner Haynes the use of idle
chasers lying in the navy yards
for patrol duty along the Georgia
and Florida coasts.
Regardless, however, of whether
these boats, to be manned by regu.
lar navy crews. under the direct
charge of Federal enforcement
agents, will be put into use or not.
plans for. the breaking up of the
smuggling on a larger scale than
ever before are being matured and
probably will be put Into effect im

picked men of the force from sev.

and with definite instructions to get
the rum runners at any cost.
They wi'l throw a cordon along the
entire coast in en effort to seize the
liquor after it is landed, depending
for suc'cess largely on force of num
bers and unceafting vigilance. If the
boat. requested are made available
b~y the Government. these men also
will be put in charge of them In an
endeavor to scotch the whiskey

Why Popcorn Popi
Is Shown by
my In"e maeal NewS serrtie.
BLOOMINGTON. Ind.. larch
27.-Why does popcorn pop?
Ask Paul Weatherwax, a member
of the science deyartment of In
iana University, who, after a spe
cial study of the complex object.
offers in brief the following ex
"The popping of a grain of
corn is an explobion due to the
expansion, under pressure, of
moisture contained in the starch
grains. Until the instant of the
explosion this force is confined
by the celloidal matrix in which
the starch grains are embedded.
Neither air nor any volatile oil is
in any way concerned with the
process as the expansive mediin.
As a result of popping there is
hydrolysis of much of the starch,
a loss of moisture, and the oblit
eration of all cellular structure in
the endospeum.
Mr. Weatherwax gives a fevw
practical tips as to how to pr.
duce the best results in poppinr.
He says: "For buccessful pot'
ping the heat must. be applied
rapidly enough to generate qteari
faster than it escapes, but t-lowly
enough to permit hydrolysis of
most of the starch before the ex
plosion occurs. Best results are
obtained when the heat is so ap
plied that a temperature of 175
to 200 degrees centigrade i
reached in two and a half to
three minutes."

ANNAPOLIS. Md., March 37.
One effect of the naval bill in its
present form will be to reduce the
class whtch will enter the Naval
Academy In June of 19::3 to less
than 100 members, instead of 700
to 800. which has been customarv.
The class to enter next June will
it is believed. reach the usual figuire.
as the act will not become ef fec
tive in time to make a change. The
bill provide that each Congressman
shal have two appointments, In
stead of the five now allowed.
Thus unless at least three ap
pointees of a Congressman leave
the Academy in oDe year. which is
most unlikely, he will have no rp
pointment to make.
The present outlook Is that the
class will be formed from the fifty
enlisted men of the navq and m.,
rine corps to be appointed. annuliv

Beginning with next year's class
the amount of spending money at
lowed midshipmen will be raised from
the present scale of $1. $1.60. $3, and
54 allowed monthly, according to
'lass membership to $3, $6. $8, and
$13. Letters are being written to
the parents of every midshipman in
forming them of the proposed change
and requesting them not to furnish
their sons with additional money.
They are advised that the sum al
lowed them by the authorities ti
ample to cover all proper expenses.
Among the measures taken by the
authorities in order to curtail the
expenses of the midshipmen are the
the adoption of rules against mid
shipmen riding in taxies or auto
mobiles and against the wearing of
flowers at Academy dances. As these
things ar not permitted the mid
ahipinen cannot spend money for
them. They are also forbidden from
borrowing money. and the local banks
are directed to refrain from the lend
ing to them.
