Anti-Saloon League. The « I ry side of this legal proposl Hon Is thus set fo tli by the Anti-.Su-, loon league: "Article V of lb-' federal ('«institu tion provides that the legislature or a »lute convention is the only body . hb-li can ratify an amendment to the < oiistllutlon.

Tim A 1 1 1 i Saloon League of America has probably bail more to do with bringing about prohibition than uny other on- agency It was founded in I Siiü ami Is nonpartisan anil nonaec furian. Ils purpose is the extermina tion of lb- beverage liquor trudle. It Is a coalition of Urn Anti-Suloon League of the District of Columbia, the Anti-Suloou League of Ohio und 45 other national, state und loeul tein peranec bodies. It lias branches in all stales. It fs expected to have an active part In providing legislation for the enforcement of prohibition under the eightttenlh amendment. Il Is possible that the wets may also attack the legality of the action of congress. ITy some the view is held llmt the amendment was not properly submitted to the states by congress; that it was adopted by two-thirds of a quorum present and voting, whereas according to the Constitution It should have been adopted by two-thirds of all members elected. If the resolution submitting ihe amendment were to be deelared unconstitutional it would lead to much questioning, for virtually all of the amendments to the Constitution have been adopted by a two-thirds vote of the members present rather Ihun a two-thirds vote of ull members elected to congress. Amendments of the Past. The first national prohibition amendment was proposed by Senator II. W. Hltiir *f New Hampshire ns early ns 1870. It provided for the prohibition of the manufacture, sale, importation and exportation of splrlt otis distilled liquor for beverage pur poses. lie introduced such n bill nine times between ISTti and 180«; In 1880 be changed it to Include all alcoholic liquors. Senator John D. Works of Califor nia Introduced into the sennte in 1014 a bill providing for the prohibition of spiritoux liquors, excluding wines und beers. It received no support from the national prohibition advocates. December 10, 1013, Congressman llobson of Alubnma Introduced the famous "Hobson resolution." The original resolution placed the enforce ment of the law In the hands of the national government, but It was so amended as to divide the responslbil Ity between the state and federal gov ernmonts. In order to secure the sup port of certain advocates of "states' rights." The original resolution was amended eight times by Hobson him self and was finally voted on Decem ber 'J2, 11)14, receiving 11*7 votes, L\"8 being necessary to carry through the house. It never came to u vote In the senate. When Doe* Prohibition Prohibit? Senutor Morris Sheppard of Texas, author of the amendment, holds that notional prohibition will go into effect Srrator Morns Sheppard. January 1«. 1020 certltlestlon and nn nouneenn nt of ratlflention tu-lng merely a matter of form. It is needless to say that the wet* do not accept thl* view and that effort to delay the forma 1 proceedings will be made, prvllml nary to eontesttng the h'gality of tb« i ratification. At any rate. It Is formally an nouneed that such a contest will b« made. It Is likely that the wets rely i more on the referendum proposition than on the auestioo of votas.

Swift & Company's 1918 Earnings How They Affected You During the twelve months ended Nov. 2, 1918 (its fiscal year), Swift & Company trans acted the largest volume of busi ness on the smallest margin of profit in its history. Profits of the meat business—under regulations of the United States Food Administration — were limited to a maximum of 9 per cent on capital employed but not to exceed 2 X A cents per dollar of sales. Swift & Company in the regulated departments earned 7-57 per cent on capital employed and 2-04 cents per dollar of sales, out of which had to be paid interest on borrowed money and taxes. Here is how these earnings affect you. Live-Stock Raiser* Swift & Company killed 14,948,000 head of livestock, which weighed alive, 4,971,500,000 pounds. Swift & Company made a profit of only a fraction of a cent per pound liveweight. Consumer— The sales of our meat departments were 4,012.579,000 pounds on which our earnings were less than X A cent per pound. The per capita consumption of meat in the United States is given as 170 pounds. If a consumer purchased only Swift & Company's products he would contribute only about 78 cents a year, or 1 1 2 cents a week as profit to the company.
