LEAGUE IS BUSY Pinchot Regarded as Exponent of / nti- Liquor Cause. “The cause of prohibition is stronger today in this country than ever before,” Bishop Thomas B. Nicholson of Chicago, president of the Anti-Saloon League of America .declared in an interview on his arrival today to attend the annual execu tive session of the forty-eight bishops of the Methodist Episcopal Church. “The wets are making the fight of their lives at the present time.’’ Dr. Nicholson stated. “A great deal of pernicious propaganda is going on, but the prohi bition cause is stronger today in this country than ever before. “The league Is conducting a survey of prohibition conditions city by city and section by section. The report of the Manufacturer’s Record, the Record hav ing sent out questionnaires to a thou sand representative business men who had Indorsed the eighteenth amendment and the Volstead act before both were enacted by Congress, shows that over 98 per cent of the 1,000 representative busi ness men and manufacturers expressed themselves as complete standpatters for prohibition and also stated that they were more enthusiastic than ever before in favor of prohibition. “The league is holding a series of ten conventions in different cities. At one of these conventions held recently in Mil waukee, which was attended by prohibi tion workers of eleven States, the re ports everywhere indicated the enormous benefits from prohibition. “The problem is to get the facts to the people. Facts speak for themselves. So far in the congressional primaries, the Una of those pledged to prohibition has been maintained and in some instances even advanced. Gifford Pinchot, who was nominated as the Republican candidate for Governor in Pennsylvania, is a mem ber of the league,” Bishop Nicholson said. The execulie sessions of the Methodist Episcopal Bishops are not opened to the public. A number of public receptions and addresses have been arranged for in the local Methodist churches. Tonight at 8 o’clock, the bishops will be the guests at a reception to be held at the Meridian Street M. E. Church.

Among the more Important ques tions which will be discussed will be area supervision, the benevolent program of the church, the Post Centenary Pro gram, and several important National and International problems will be dis cussed In the reports of the various Bishops. ASSIGNMENT OF BISHOPS. Among the more Important work to be done before the meetings adjourn will be the assigning of the bishops to pre side at the fail conferences. This will probably be announced Saturday. At today's sessions each bishop was making a ten-mlnnte report on condi tions In his area. The time limit Is re moved from bishops In the foreign fields. Bishop Wilbur P. Thlrkield of Mex ico reported to the other bishops that Panama, Costa Rico, 'Peru and Mexico are now open for the evangelistic move ment. He stated that he has personally conferred with the presidents of all of those republics and each one has en dorsd the social and educational evan gelical movement of the Methodist Church. STRENGTHENS SITUATION In speaking of Mexico, the Bishop said, “The recent settlement of the bond ed debt and the opinion of the lnterna i ional banking group In New York great ly strengthens the Mexican situation, and my hope Is that It will soon lead to recognition on a basis that will protect American life and property.’’ He reported the prohibition movement Is rapidly gaining strength in Mexico and the government recently purchased many textbooks on prohibition, to be used In the schools In northern Mexico, to show the evils of intoxicating liquor. It was reported at the session this morning that the church is building a twenty-one-story structure in Chieago to ! tie known a Methodist headquarters.
