met defeat throughout the state in
Tuesday's primary, the returns on
the vote for members of the House
a-d Senate show. The State Sen
ate will be "wet" by a majority of
at least seven, about 28 to 30 of 41
senators being opposed to prohibi
tion. In the House, at least 75 out
of 118 members are "wet." This is
a1 increase in the "wet' majority
in both branches. In the present
Legislature the House was very
close and the Senate "wet" by only
a few votes.
The personnel of both branches
of the Legislature reflects the over
whelmiag rejection of the prohibi
tion issue raised by Mr. Barret. In
quite a number of cases candidates
supporting Mr. Barret were elected,
but in these cases the candidate
was not known as a prohibitionist.
Aladin Vincent, of Lake Charles,
was re-elected to the state Senate
on the local option issue over H. H.

the Barret platform. R E. Howell.
