ANOTHER BLOW TO LIQUOR
SALES.
Los Angeles seems to be fioing in
for novel liquor regulations. A recent
news item reports that the olice com
mission, under leadership of the may
or, has put into effect a rule provid
ing that hereafter no civilian can be
served with intoxicating drinks in any
liquor establishments, including I lie
wholesale liquor houses, cafes, dubs,
saloons or other places where liquoif
are dispensed if there is an American
soldier, sailor or marine present ir,
uniform.
This ruling was found 'necessary lie
cause civilians were buying drink?
and passing them on to uniformed
men, thus technically evading the pro
hiibtion against selling 'ntoxlcants to
soldiers or sailors.
It Is further explained that any act
that may ho construed as u subter
fuge to violate this resolution will be
cause for the revocation of license.
It is safe to prophesy thai a uniform
darkening the entrance to any place
where liquor is ordinarily sold will b
welcomed with tempered Joy by all
but 'bone-dry" enthusiasts, il miht
be a good prohibition move to station
a soldier or sailor In every liquor-dispensing
place and thus effe lively
stop all liquor sales. Or will the un!
formed men lake pity on Los Angeles
civilians and keep to the soda foun
tains and ether arid spots?
NEXT LIBERTY LOAN
NOT TO BE FOR EIGHT
BILLION, SAYS MC AD00
Washington;' IVc. 21.Kmp!iatio do
nlal that the next Liberty Loan will
be for eight billion dollars at Hi

tary of the Treasury McAdoo in the
following statement:
"The report that the next issue of
the Liber! y floods would be $.8.000,.
000,000 and at Hi per cent, is wholly
unfounded, j wish I could make the
patriotic newspapermen of America
realize how mischioyoiw' and hurtful
to the interests of . the country, such
circulated statements tire. When a
decision has been reached about the.
next Liberty Loun, it will be officially
announced. Meanwhile ul I other state
