LAW ASKED i OF CONGRESS! Hoover’s Commission Suggests Quick Action WASHINGTON. Jan. 13— Reserving judgment on its ultimate prohibition conclusions, the law enforcement commission—in a pre liminary report sent to congress to day-recommended th?t the nation al prohibition law be immediately strengthened in the Interest of pro moting observance of and respect for all law. “If on no other grounds than to give the law a fair trial" the com mission said, “there are obvious and uncontroverted difficulties. pointed pointed out by experience, which may, and. as we think, should be met so as to make enforcement more effective." These difficulties were declared reccomendations 1. Reorganization of the fed eral court structure so as to give relief from congestion. 2. Concentration of responsi bility in detection and prosecu tion of prohibition violations. 3. Consolidation of the various agencies engaged in prevention of smuggling of liquor, narcotics. ; other merchandise anc aliens ever our frontiers. 4.

Possibilities of defeating padlock Injunctions by means of concealing ownership of property used for manufacture and sale of illicit liquor. . „ “These figures speak for them selves Further Study Needed “To adjust the machinery of fed eral administration, as it has grown up for other purposes, to this huge problem of enforcement of prohibi tion is not easy, and will require much further study. Unification centralization of responsibility, and meant of ensuring cooperation be tween federal and state agencies, as things to which we must come, quite apart from the exigencies of en forcement of prohibition, but which can not be achieved overnight." Replying to those who have as sailed if for a failure to hold pub lic hearings on the prohibition ques tion. the commission reported to President Hoover that it conceived it "to be more useful to make a careful study of the whole question, securing information from the res ponsible officers of government and from printed reports, as well as from hearings before committees of congress, before embarking upon public hearings." Summing up its four recommend ations for legislative enactments, the commission said: We think they could not in any f vm interfere with any ultimate pro gram which we may have to rec ommend, and would in the mean time advance observance of the law.' Congestion Blamed Congestion of petty prosecutions in the federal court® leading to wholesale disposition of *ccumu- j lated cases under circumstances impairing the dignity of and in juring respect for those tribunals. ‘ Without prejudice to any ulti mate conclusions." the report said, “we think that in the Interest of promoting observance of and res pect for law. the national prohibi tion law may well be strengthened and its effectiveness increased in these important particulars." As to observance, the commission I declared that "it is wholly impos sible to set off observance of the prohibition act fuom the large question of the vie tvs and habits of the American people with res pect to private Judgment as to statutes and regulations affecting. their conduct." -We must not forget the many historical examples of large-scale public disregard of la\ s in our past” the report said, adding that “we must bear in mind the Pur ltah’s objection to administration, the whig tradition of a right of revolution.' the conception of na tural rights, classical in our pol icy the democratic tradition of individual participation in sover ignty” §0,000 Arrested Asserting that as to enforcement Jhere were no reliable figures to show the £. of the problem, the commission said the reported ar rests in the last fiscal year of up wards of eighty thousand persons from every party of continental United State- “indicates a stagger ing number of what might be call ed focal points of infection." Attention was directed that there also were 18.700 miles of boundary and shore lines for the United Sta tes “at every point of which in fection is possible."

Added to earlier advices that President Hoover had taken per sonal note of the situation and that the State Department was do ing all that was possible was word from Mexico City where President Oil said the Mexican foreign of fice was discussing the matter, but had not reached a decision. Mexico City was silent on the negotiations knou’n to be going on with a rep resentative of the United States government. It was said custon.i brokers in Nuevo Laredo. Mexico, had been advised not to move their offices to other border towns, as have several American firms. This was taken to mean a settlement was near in the controversy caused by district attorney John A Vails’ threats to arrest former President Calles of Mexico on charges of conspiracy to murder. At Mexico City an agent of the national railways of Mexico said no embargo had been placed in Mexico on Laredo, but that Mex ican shippers had been advised to use other ports of entry into the United States as the latter wrere at present better fitted to handle shipments.

Airport Seen Continued in the program of en tertainment for the visitors was an inspection of the airport. The brokers were astonished to learn that a letter air-mailed here today can be answered in Mexico City tonight and a reply received to morrow. This is the only port on the border having such quick Tet ter-communication with the Mex ican national capital. Representatives of the brokers are expected to arrive here tomorrow and Wednesday to cross the divert ed shipments from Laredo. Crossings will be in the name of J. G. °hilen jr., local broker, about 60 days be ing required for the transferring and straightening out of bonds.
