HOUSE TO VOTE
Ui S. DRY TODAY Two Important Changes Made in Bill 1 Siricfe Leaving Committee The Vclstead prohibition/ enforce ment bill, with only two important changes in the form in whiich it was replorte!d out by the Judiciary Cotavmittee, was brought to the point to final passage in the Houise last Qight, when a technicality forced over the final ballot until today. Immediately after convening a roll call vote will' be taken on a motion to recommit by Representative Igoe :?rid then a record ballot on actual passage wjjfl complete the House's consideration of the measure. The motion to recommit is certain to be defeated arid final passage of the bill is assured. The Igoe proposal would strike out everything after the enacting clause and insert in lieu thereof three piaragraiphs drafted By the "liberaJis." The principal feature of(th<? sub-' stitutc is thiat" it iV written' to cor respond with the wording of the Con stitution prohibition amendment and does met define the term intoxicating liquor. It contains no reference to war-time prohibition. Of tho two material changes made in the bill, one was offered by the1 "drys" and the other came from the 'Hiberallis." Representative BarkTey tightened the enforcement legislation by putting through an amendment to the search" and Seizure section. Un der this ' amejnd/ment the _ right }of search is extended- to private homes wherein liquor is being sold. As; the brBr was originaffly' dtfawn. search of th?s character was prohibited. ? The su'ccesstftfl "liberal" amend ment was offered by Representative Gard. It strikes out of the bill Sec iion 21. which would have empowere? judges to require of persons, convict ed of violating the prohibition law a bond that; they wouftd nfct repeat the violation within one; year. In cases where the. defendant could not give bond, a jail sentence of sax months would have been provided. AUSTRIA GIVEN TERMS New Clauses Ask Reparation Similar to German Exactions.
