Counsel Takes Issue With
Root, Guthrie and Marbury
on War Prohibition.
Enforcement Act Declared
Constitutional By Prece
dents of Court.
WASHINGTON, Aug 4. Wayne B.
Wheeler, counsel for the Anti-Saloon
League of America, took issue today
with the opinion of Elihu Root, Wil
liam D. Guthrie and William L Mar
bury, counsel for the United States
Brewers' association that the war pro
hibition enforcement act is unconsti
tutional Mr. Wheeler also denied
that the league forces intended to
start an anti-tobacco campaign
"The authority of congress to enact
the war prohibition law," Mr. Wheeler
said, "rests on the provisions in th
constitution which gives congress
rower to support the army and navy
This power and obligation extends
through demobilization The courts
have so held Congress evidently In
tended to prohibit all beer and wine
In the original act, Some of the
courts hold the act does this. Others
hold differently. Congress is .slmplv
'frying to make clear the Intention of
'the original act.
It is now well-settled by the
preme'eourt that if copgres has power
j to enact a law it also has the power
to enact additional legislation to
make the original act effective and en
forceable. To define the term inioxi
cating liquor Is necessary to make the
act enforceable, especially whero
courts have defeated its purpose by
their own construction."
Referring to charges of the associa
itlon opposed to national prohibition
I that the Anti-Saloon league was ac
tively aiding in a campaign of the
W. C. T (J. against tobacco, Mr.
Wheel. t said:
'"Th ant i tobacco scarecrow of the
anti prohibition forces does not fool
anyone The Anti-Saloon league forces
have no intention to start this cru
'sade. The liquor traffic Is a public
nuisance. The tobacco habit may be
In private or personal bad habit, but it
i cot In the same class as Intoxicating

In bill establishing permanent mili

today by Secretary Baker.
The active force of this army would
bt 510,000 regulars while the remain
der would be young men who had tak
en a three months' military course
which would be compulsory for all 19
year old youths. This reserve strength
would be used to fill out the twenty

WASHINGTON. Aug. 4. Plans for
a permanent peace army of 510,000
officers and men and a system of uni-
c rsal military training were transmit
ted to congress today by Secretary
I Baker.
The plans were embodied In a bill
which represents tire policy of the
war department with respect to the
peaco time military establishment.
lTnder the measure all special ser
I vices built up during the war would H
be maintained as separate branches
except the chemical warfare service,
I which would be merged with the ensi- j
i neers' corps. 1
Three months military training for
souths of 19 would be made compul
sory and promotion of officers by sen
iority would be abolished. Secretarv
I Baker said the war had shown t h i
system of promotion to be defective.
No changes in the existing law with
regard to the organization of the na
tional guard and its l elation to the
I regular army was suggested. Mr I
r k-r said i' was assumed that the
national defense act federalizing the
guard would b- retained in force.
Under the army's plan, youths would
be subject to military service for two
vears after completing the course of
military training and in the event of
wnr the selective service act in force
during ihe great wax would becomw
Secretarv Baker said ir a letter ac

not yet been referred 10 General Per
shing, but that it could he used as th"
basis for hearings which the se-ns.t
military committee i--, to have before
draftiu legislation, establishing n per
manent military policy
j "The bill as drafted,' said Secretary
Baker, "provides for a system of uni
versal training for a very brief period
applicable to all male citizens with
suitable provision for exemptions and
"It does not, however, provide for
any reserve obligation since U is un
necessary' with a system of universal
service In time of emergency."
