DRY FORCES NEED V SMELLING SALTS In Order to Arouse 'Them Out of Their Stupor, Said Flying Squadron ' , Speaker in Barre. The second division of the flying squadron, organized for the purpose of law enforcement and "civic, , improve ment with the main purpose in view it present of downing any possible chance for the return of light winea and bee, was represented in Barre yceterdny by James H. Wocrtcndyke. He spoke at both the afternoon and evening lec tures at tb Hedding church and wts in a distinct class aa a speaker, being entirely different from any other beard here thus far. He is a lawyer by pro fession and being thus ' equipped, nat urally took hie discussion of ' the .it- ii tw. from thn noint of the law. In the afternoon, he confined his ad dress to the subject of law enforce- m.l Heacrihinir the oninioll of the get!- eral public that law enforcement was the only side ot tne situation anu was all that was'necessary to enforce prolii- bition. '' ' i His address lasCevening wa on the subject of holding the law, already in force. He warned his audience that the dry forces were sleeping and that if the wet gang was to overcome in men efforts to restore light wine and beets smelling salts must be given to the dry force' io bring them out;. of their stu por. He Uent into the technicalities of the making of a law after an amend ment had gone through the House a no Sonata ohowin!? how easv .it would be for a group of wet congressmen to remodel, change or altogether set aside the law passed after tne insugau.. of Mr. Volstead. He explained to h'n hearers that the fight was not to pa any new laws but to preserve those al mu.l.i hv Ponorcsa. . The methods used by the wets, in their raising of funds to continue a tight for control in Congress in order that they may change the law was de scribed in detail. He even went so far as to name a number of the wet, men who were striving to get a re-ek-cti in on a wet ticket in order that the law may be changed. , Greene of Vermont was among the number, he said. The thing for the dry people to do is to come out plainly' on one side or the other. There can be no neutra'Uy on the subject and anyone claiming io be neutral is aiding the damp Jorce. He expluined the inevitable result of wet control and the object of their strenuous efforts to down Volstead la the coming election.. He explained that if Volstead were out of the running the next three men to succeed him ai t-hair man of the House committee, on the question would be as wet as several well know n rivers in this land. In closing his address he urged the people, to greater effort, explaining that it was a battle royal and a hard figlu for the wets were firmly entrenched. The dry forces are on the defense in the campaign and it i up to all to stand .firm on the question as they be lieve in it.
