Volstead, author of the Volstead prohibition! act is back home here, making the I hardest political campaign ot his career. He seeks reelection pn his prohi bition record, against Rev.' O. J.

Tbe fight has assumed national interest The nation's "dry" and "wet" organisations have both en tered the campaign, for it is bound to have a tremendous effect upon the big effort to amend the' dry law and legalise light wines and beer. Volstead's opponent is pastor of the Lutheran church at Benson, Minn. Rev. Mr. Kvale has not rais ed tbe prohibition question, did pot seek "wet" support but regardless of his "dry" views, it has been thrust upon him. Volstead Power Great. Volstead is chairman of the pOw erful Judiciary committee of the house of representatives, to which all bills 'for modification of tbe pro hibition act would be referred. Vol stead's ability to hold down consid eration ot wet measures is a big factor for prohibition strength.

Graham, Phila delphia, would become chairman of the Judiciary committee. Wets say he would be "mora amenable to reason" than a prohibitionist- Should the Democrats regain control of tha house.
