WHO KNOWS?
Lawrence Says Nobody

BY DAVID LAWRENCE.
(Copyright; 1922,. oy The Argus.) "
Washington, D. :C Nov. 14. Is
there any hope for beer end light
wines? Did last' week's election
help the "wets" or the "drys" and
when can the next move on either
side be expected and what- will
come of it? ..' ' '
These questions have been asked
a thousand times since the two
national organizations fighting for
an opposed to prohibition began
their series of conflicting claims.
The truth lies between the two
as usual. Each side can present
convincing figures to show that
congress is still dry or will- be wet
s tbe case may be. But wnen
one finds each side claiming some
of the same men as being wet and
dry and when the doubtful or non
voting group is examined and when
some of the wavering ones are can
vassed, the conclusion is inescap
able that nothing is definite till the
roll is called and' titat the prohi
bition issue will be decided in the
next congress by an opportunist
bloc which will wait to see which
way me cat jumps.
. Drys" May Switch.
" In 'other words, there are scores
of members' of congress who have
voted "dry" who will be tempted
to switch to tbe. other side if the
National Association Opposed' to
Prohibition, which is trying to par-

league.' can show that the wet
votes in their respective, districts
will be sufficient to elect these
members next time, -- '
Tbe fight has become more in
tensive. After permitting the
Anti-Saloon league several years'
start, the. National Association Op
posed to Prohibition is finally get
ting under way with state organi
zations, speakers end vote solici
tors in the hope that ; they can
swing a political club Just as the
Anti-Saloon league has done.
On the face of the last election
returns,, however,:, the..-case . looks
better for the drys than it does for
the wets. New Jersey, NewYork,
Massachusetts and Maryland al
ways have been considered wet
states., They stayed wet Ohio has
been dry and stayed dry by defeat
ing the wet amendment California,
however, the wine growing : state
which has always been thought
wet, turned out to be dry, defeat
ing the referendum. To this the
wets answer that their organiza
tion in that state was too young, to
be effective and that there wtl be a
"next time."
Illnoist Take Tear Choice,
In iyinois you can take your
choice as to what . the election
meant. The straw vote for 2.75 per
cent beer was not opposed by the
drys at tbe polls-at least it is
claimed that the dry were asked
not to vote at all so as to see if the

Opposing Armed Forces in
Ireland Increase Activity;
Both Sides Claim Victories
Dublin, Ireland, ' Nov. 14. (By
the : Associated Press.) The cur
rent increase of activity of armed
forces opposing the Irish govern
ment is attributed to the reunion
of the political wings of Republi
canism, i This, among other things,
resulted in the reappointment of
Eamou de Valera as "president of
the Irish republic," with a council
of state claiming-sole ' legitimate
anthoritv in Ireland.
There is a wide divergence be-'
tween . the accounts - published by
the government of its successes
against - the irregulars and those
put out by the De Valera party.
The government claims to be win-
aing and gradually restoring order.

It was believed the pouch con

Lausanne, Nov. 14. (By the As

Turkish delegation to the peace
conference has been a keen disap-l
pointment to the people of Lau-'

of the delegates have even laid;
aside their astrakhan caps and are;
so conventionally dressed in der-j
bies and European overcoats and!
suits that the curious Swiss are'
unable to distinguish, the Turks'
from otber guests at the Palace

about tbe Turkish party today was j

are red haired and so unlike the,
