WINTER, SUMMER AT GRIPS IN WEST / HALF OF COUNTRY High Temperature Records Set in California; Mountain Area Is Frigid Kansas City, April 21.— (It*) —Win- ter and summer were at grips over the western half of the United States Tuesday with high temperatures on the Pacific Coast and sub-frcczing marks east of the Rockies. At several California points the mercury soared to new records for April Monday, causing the state for estry service to issue forest fire warn ings earlier than usual. Low hu midity in Washington and Oregon increased the danger in that section. Pair and warmer was the general forecast in the Rocky Mountain area, which was swept by snow flurries Monday night. Unsettled weather conditions with cloudiness and low’ temperatures were forecast for the Plains states in the wake of snow and rain. Freezing marks were forecast for South Da kota, Nebraska and parts of Kansas, Texas and. Oklahoma. Farmers in the area feared the benefit from heavy rains would be offset by dam age to crops from the cold. Temper atures were expected to rise during Lie day, however. Snow fell Monday in Montana, Wyoming, eastern Colorado, western Nebraska and Kansas and the pan handle of Oklahoma. The rain push ed northward into Minnesota, where ?t aided fire fighters in checking a blaze which had burned over several thousand acres of timber. Aviation activities virtually were halted and many planes were grounded at Kan sas City, Tulsa and other points. Tlirce of four forest fires in Cali fornia were reported under control. A high wind hampered the efforts of fire fighters in checking the largest, covering 300 acres, near Sardine, Calif., 20 miles east of Nevada City.

Sabin Says | Candidates Will Not Be Able to Evade Issue Editor’s Note: This is the first of two stories representing the conflicting viewpoints of women ! on prohibition. The next, which i will appear Wednesday will pre j sent the viewpoint of a national- I ly-known woman favorable to prohibition. By MRS. CHARLES 11. SABIN i Chairman of the Women’s Organ ization for National Pro hibition Reform. Washington, April 21.—The think ing women of America, once aroused by the dangerous conditions confront ing this country as a result of the failure of prohibition, will not cease their work and efforts until the 18th amendment is repealed. The Women’s Organization for National Prohibition Reform went on record last year for repeal, refusing to consider any substitutes or compro mises. The popularity of that stand has been convincingly demonstrated by the progress we have since made; strikingly evident in our large en thusiastic conference, just adjourned, in the national capitol. Last year we met at Cleveland with 300 women, a third of whom were residents of Cleveland and nearby communities. This year 1,000 women gathered from 33 states and the Dis trict of Columbia—determined and representative women from the south, the middle and far western states as well as from the eastern seaboard. Sentiment Turns There is no doubt that sentiment against prohibition has increased tre mendously. The huge majorities which candidates supporting repeal of state prohibition laws received in the last 1930 elections showed clearly that women as well as men had turned against an intolerable state of affairs. The growing army of women which this organization represents will not let any candidate for office evade this issue of national prohibition. The determination displayed by women voters last November as they broke party lines in Masachusetts, Illinois, Rhode Island, Ohio and Pennsylvania was only a forerunner of what is to come. These women will go into the conventions and primaries of the sev eral parties in 1932 to fight for the nomination of candidates pledged to repeal the 18th amendment. And if necessary they will go to the polls on election day prepared to place patri otism above partisanship and vote for the cause of prohibition reform. For Children’s Sake I have been asked if there is a par ticular woman’s viewpoint on prohi bition. If there is such a thing, it is because of their interest in children. A majority of the women at the or ganization’s recent Washington con ference were mothers. They cannot help but be seriously concerned to have their children growing up in the face of conditions existing today be cause of an attempt to enforce total abstinence upon the nation. I think it will be conceded that liquor was never so easily obtainable, especially by women and minors. The old saloon, whatever its evils, did not count large numbers of women and young people among its customers. Today liquor is served to anyone, both in speakeasies and in the home. Chil dren are growing up in a world where lawlessness is rampant, hypocrisy en couraged and contempt for the con stitution lauded. A New I sage The prohibition question has gone far beyond the question of the right to drink. Prohibition itself is really no longer an issue. The country is now primarily concerned with decid ing the best method of ridding itself of the system’s glaring and ever more threatening evils. The prohibitionists are still making the speech which they made before the 18th amendment became part of the constitution. They are still talk ing about a theory; they are still pointing to the evils of the old saloon. This organization contends that we have never lost the saloon; it is now known as a speakeasy. But saloon or speakeasy—we want to be rid of it. We want control of the liquor traffic. No such control now exists, despite the tremendous expense and effort which the government has put into its attempt at enforcement. It is hard to understand why the drys will not join with us in trying to put the speakeasy out of business. These groups are fighting far hard er to save the 18th amendment than they ever had to fight to secure it. But they are demoralized. Before national prohibition they had only to combat the brewers and the distillers. Now they are up against the attack of a great body of intelligent, altruistic men and women, and they are consequently becoming more and more irrational and con fused. Living Conditions Improve Steadily Philadelphia, April 21.— (1P) —The long-term trend of living conditions in this country is upward, and will continue so, W. W. Atterbury, presi dent of the Pennsylvania railroad, said Tuesday in addressing the Phila delphia Bond club. It is possible, he added, to go too fast or to try to do too much at one time. “We will get out of our present dif ficulties, ” Mr. Atterbury said, “as all great fundamentally rich countries have invariably done in the past, and I hope we shall manage to do so with the minimum amount of ‘muddling through.’" 4 -4 i ‘Booties’ Joke as They Await Trial j •> ■ ♦ Being arraigned in federal court on a charge of violating the prohibition jaw isn t the most joyful thing one could imagine but it has its lighter side, judging by the demeanor of a dozen or more defendants who will enter pleas at the term which opened here Tuesday. As they jostled hack and forth in the corridor outside the court room in the federal building there was considerable jocularity and the comment most frequently heard was “It looks as though Bismarck were host to a hoot leggfers contention.” -V -.•••. • V; •.- Flays Dry Law o MRS. CHARLES H. SABIN USE FORECASTS FARM BOARD ML RE ISSUE IN 1932 Says Hoover Is Surprisingly Un popular in Pacific Coast States Chicago, April 21. (JP) Jouett Shouse, chairman of the executive committee of the Democratic national committee, Tuesday predicted the fed eral farm board would be one of the chief issues of the 1932 presidential campaign. Returning east after visiting Pacific coast states, the Democratic leader reiterated his belief that unemploy ment still was the major political problem before thp people. “I do not, however, minimize the importance of prohibition as an is sue,” Shouse said. Dwelling on the administration’s farm relief program, Shouse said that “if curtailment of acreage and pro duction was the best remedy the Re publican party had to cure the ills of agriculture, they could have made a campaign for this curtailment with out creating the farm board and ap propriating five hundred million dol lars.” The Democrats are "perfectly will ing,” Shouse said, to leave the ques tion of success or failure of the farm board to the votes of the farmers. A reduction of the “enormities of the Hoover-Grundy tariff,” and the retention by the people of the natural resources were other issues included by the party leader in the 1932 pro gram. Regarding his Pacific coast visit, Shouse said he was “surprised at the disappointment evidenced against the Hoover administration in California, Washington and Oregon. The chag rin against the president in his home state was noticeable to a remarkable degree.’* The former Kansas congressman predicted the passage in the 72nd congress of the unemployment bills offered in the last session by Sena tor Robert Wagner (New York). “It is significant that the only measures offered to cure unemploy ment in the last congress were done so by a Democrat, and his measures were all opposed by the administration.” One of the Wagner bills, proposing joint state and federal employment agencies, was killed by a pocket veto and Shouse predicted this would be come a law in the next congress.

TUESDAY, APRIL 21, 1931 SAYS MAGGOTS ARE PROVING USEFUL IN HEAUNGOF WOUNDS Dr. Arnson Tells Kiwanians of New Wonders Disclosed at Medical Meeting How maggots are being used to aid science in healing wounds was des cribed to members of the Bismarck Kiwanls club Tuesday by Dr. J. O. Arnson, who returned recently from Lhe annual convention of the Ameri can College of Physicians at Balti more, Md. The discovery of how the larvae of the common, blue-bottle fly can be of assistance to the medical profes sion, Dr. Arnson said, dates back to the days of the World war when two men, who had lain for days on the battlefield without attention, were brought to a hospital. An American surgeon found that their wounds were covered with mag gots but that, when these were stripped away, the wounds were clean and healed quickly. There was no evidence of the various kinds of in fection which often made such neg lect fatal. I For 10 years, Dr. Arnson said, the surgeon wondered about that pheo nomena but never could get up enough nerve to make tests of the apparently preposterous theory that maggots could affect a suppurating wound so as to make it heal more quickly. Finally, however, he began experimenting and has produced an entirely new method of treating cer tain conditions. It has proved es pecially valuable in treating bone in fections, Dr. Arnson said, but also speeds the healing of wounds in soft er body tissues. Another of the wonders of science reported at the meeting, Dr. Arnson said, is discovery of the fact that the liver can reproduce itself rapidly and of a new insight into its functions. Tests showed, Dr. Arnson said, that no symptoms of liver trouble appear until the liver is almost wholly eaten away. When adversely affected by 1 any poison, he said, all that is neces sary is to remove the source of the poison and the liver soon restores it self to normal. It has been demonstrated, he said, that if a part of the liver is removed it grows back again and is even larger than before. As a result, he asserted, surgeons have taken from animals a total quantity of liver larger than they had in the first place and the animal still had more liver left in its body that it had be fore the operations were commenced. This is important information to phy sicians treating human dseases, he said, because of the relation of the liver to various well-known ailments. The exposition of science’s new wonders was a part of a talk by Dr. Arnson upon his recent trip to the East during which he visited New York city and other points. Mrs. V. J. La Rose led the clubmen in singing “The Star Spangled Ban ner.” Mrs. P. E. Byrne played the piano accompaniment. Other guests at the luncheon were Dr. La Rose, Rev. R. A.
