TURKS AMERICAN AM Neither May Liquor be Brought Into American Waters by Vessels Of Other Nations Washington, Oct. 7. Masters of shipping board vessels were ordered today by Chairman Lasker, by direc tion of the president, to remove and surrender to treasury department offi cials all intoxicating liquors aboard such ships. The order, which applies to government ships operated by the board and under charter to private concerns, became effective immediate ly with respect to vessels in American ports and will be made effective on those at sea and in foreign ports upon arrival at American ports. DECISION HANDED DOWN Washington, Oct. 7. All vessels, American and foreign owner, are pro hibited from having liquor on board in American territorial waters under an interpretation of the prohibition amendment and the enforcement act, handed down yesterday by the depart ment of justice. Moreover, the trans portation or sale of intoxicants on American craft, wherever operated, was held to be inhibited. American territorial waters were construed to include those not only within the three-mile limit of conti nental United States, but also those within the same limit of the Philip pines, the Hawaiian Islands, Porto Rico, the Virgin Islands and Alaska. The law would not apply to the Pan ama canal zone, as that zone is spe cially exempted by the statute itself. So far as American ships are con cerned the sale or transportation of liquor will cease at once, or ,as soon as those vessels reach their home ! ports. In the case of foreign ships,! the decision will become operative as soon as the necessary regulations can be prepared and promulgated by the treasury department. Court action looking to a final de termination of the application of American dry laws to foreign ships entering American ports was foreseen by both Attorney General Daugherty and Chairman Lasker of the shipping board. Mr. Daugherty said he had already been advised that a case was about to be filed which would bring the issue to the supreme court. Chairman Lasker was of the opin ion that the first move of foreign lines would be to seek an injunction restraining the government from en forcing the law. He said it was reas onable to suppose that the courts would grant such an injunction with a result that foreign ships would con tinue to arrive with liquor on board until there was a real decision by the highest court. The attorney general said his department would co-operate in every effort to expedite a ruling by the supreme court. Publication of the opinion of the department of justice followed a White House conference to which President Harding summoned Attor ney General Daugherty, Secretaries Hughes and Mellon and Chairman Lasker. Various phases of the situa tion were discussed, including the pos sible results of enforcement upon the international relations of the United States. High administration officials ex plained there was no course for the executive branch, of the government, except to enforce the law as inter preted by the legal department. The interpretation was based upon recent decisions of the supreme court in a case involving the authority of the United States to interfere with the transfer of a liquor cargo from one foreign ship to another in an Ameri can port. In a divided opinion, the court con firmed the authority of prohibition agents to prevent such a transfer, and, in the view of the attorney gen eral went so far as to hold that the eighteenth amendment and the Vol stead act repealed a prior existing treaty with Great Britain. Chairman Lasker predicted that enforcement of the law would operate to an immed iate disadvantage to the American merchant marine and would make more necessary enactment of the ship subsidy bill if the American flag is to stay on the high seas. He believed the ruling would have great influence in Congress when the subsidy bill was taken up. An undoubted effect of the enforce ment, Mr. Lasker said, would be to hamper the board in its efforts to build up American shipping to the Orient and South America. He ex pected Vancouver, British Columbia, to profit at the expense, particularly of Seattle and Portland, in the Orent al trade and Montreal at the expense of New York in the South American trade. Also he looked for Montreal to gain over New York in the trans Atlantic trade.

The Star says: "Mr. Frederick Van Roy of Citrus county is an opponent of reapportionment. Senator W. W. Phillips is for it." It would be more correct to say that I am strong for reapportionment ac cording to the constitution -but oppos ed to the proposed reapportionment amendment. The above statement is misleading and should be corrected. Yours truly, Frederick Van Roy. Mr. Van Roy wants his lines drawn too fine. Everybody knows just what the Star means by saying he opposes reapportionment. It's too much work to write: "Mr. Van Roy, who is for re apportionment according to the con stitution, but is opposed to the pro posed reapportionment amendment." Rather than take all that trouble when we refered to Mr. Van Roy's stand on the question, we would leave him out altogether. Also, the correction Mr. Van Roy wants made would be incorrect. An amendment to the constitution is con stitutional. It is too bad Mr. Van Roy wasn't there when they made the con stitution. He would have had it fixed just right. SUMTER COUNTY IS FULL OF PEP Bushnell, Oct. 7. Sumter county has a population of around 8,000 but what it lacks in numbers the citizenry is making up in "pep." At the gener al election of November 7 they will vote on a county bond issue of ?605, 000 for highway building, which, if passed, will make a total of $1,490, 000 voted for good . roads by Sumter county within the last two years. The Sumter good roads campaign began two years ago with a bond is sue of $750,000. A month ago this sum was increased at another election by $135,000. The last issue stirred the sentiment for hard surfaced roads to such an extent that the boosters decided to use it as an incentive to greater things and the Board of Coun ty Commissioners last week, as a re sult of a monster mass meeting of citizens, ordered the vote on the $605, 000 issue next month. Yanke fans began to feel encouraged. Meusel grounded to third and caught Pipp between second and third. Then Schang singled to center and Meusel went to third but Schang went out at second. Ward ended the game when he went out.
