16 GOVERNORS IN WA5HINCTDN
FOB THE "DRf CONFERENCE
Washington, Deo. 17.? President Hard- i
Ing's conference with governors on pro- I
hlbltlon enforcement will take place to- '
morrow at the White House. Sixteen
state executives haw* signified their In- I
tentiott of attending, having already ar- j I
rived from White Sulphur Springs, W.
Va.. where the fourteenth annual gover- I
nors' conference was held last week.
The original plan of the President
contemplated a meeting of governors
here In January for a discussion pf pro
hibition problems, but the proximity of
a large group of them In attendance at
the White Sulphur Springs conference
was one of the factors which caused the
date to be advanced.
In administration circles It Is be
lieved, .however, that another conference i
will be necessary after January 1. as
many of the governors will ,be out of
3lf.ee after the llrst of tho year, and a '
new group will be charged with Co
operating In the enforcement of the pro
hibition law.
president Harding, in reaching n deci
sion regarding tomorrow's conference,
IS was said, was confronted with this
problem, but It was thought desirable
to obtain the views of those who have
had experience In dealing with the pro
hibition question during the past few
years, so as to make it available for
the new atate executives If another con
ference Is held.
Governors Attending.
Those who have Indicated they will
attend the conference are: Governors J
Sproul. Pennsylvania! Allen, Kansas;
Denny, Delaware; Ritchie, Maryland;
Kllby. Alabama; Hyde. Missouri; Davis,
Idaho; Campbell, Arlsonai McKelvle. Ne
dlana: Cox. Massachusetts. Olcott, Orc
r?n; Hartnees. Vermont; Haxtcr. Malno,
and l'reus, Minnesota.
Wayne I), Wheeler, general counsel
for the Anil-Saloon league, and W. H.
Stayton. executive head of the Asaoela
tlon Against the Prohibition Amend
ment. Issued statements today com
inendlng the calling of the conference.
Mr. Wheeler said: "The United States
must check lawlessness or he engulfed
by It." Mr. Stayton said his association
"agreed with the President's declara
tion In his last message to congress
that crime Is running amuck In this
country."
Tor Law Enforcement.
"The governors' law enforcement con
ference Is most opportune," Mr. Wheel
er's statement said. "The organized at
tack on the eighteenth amendment and
the laws to enforce It Is an affront to
law-abiding citizens. The governors of
the state have already In many In
stances set a worthy example by calling
upon public officials to enforce the law,
and private citizens to ohev th.? law."
Mr. Stayton and his association
agreed "that It Is hlg.'v llinc to call In
the governors, because It is the federal
law which has broken down." licforo
the adoption of the eighteenth amend
merit, ho said, "most of the states had
their Individual prohibition laws, which
were duly enforced without scandal."
"The orgy of crime and disrespect for
law was not known ul that time," Mr.
Stayton said, adding that he hoped the
conference would have the effect of
pointing to the Inevitable adoption of
the plan of our organization of turning
Ilia entire matter of enforcement hack
to the governors and the states, .where
tt belongs." )
