LINCOLN, Jan. 16. Nebraska today ratified the pro

state necessary to make prohibition a part of the consti

AMENDMENT BECOMES LAW.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 16. Prohibtion became part of
the basic law of the United States today. Ratification
of the federal' amendment by the Nebraska legislature
makes that measure the eighteenth amendment to the
federal constitution. .
All but a half dozen of the 48 states are expected to ad
opt the amendment in the next few weeks but the action
of Nebraska today gives the ratification of three fourths
of the states, the number necessary to administer John
Barleycorn the K-0 punch.
One year from today every saloon, brewery, distillery
and wine press inthe land must close its doors unless, as
now seems likely, they are already closed at that time by
war nrohibition which eoes into effect next Julv 1. and
Itays i until completion of demobilization.
