ANTI-SALOONISTS BELITTLE REF
ERENDUM WHICH WENT
REPUBLICANS HAVE MARGIN
Majority Party Will Have 225 Mem
bers in Lower House and 52 in
Upper; Democrats 204 and 42;
Washington.—The political complex
ion of the next congress having been
definitely established, turned on the
probable lineup on the question of
modification of the prohibition enforce
ment laws. Both the “drys” and
“wets” were claiming a victory as a
result of the recent elections.
For the Anti-Saloon league, Wayne
B. Wheeler, general counsel, said the
“wets” would not have as many votes,
by three at least, in the senate as here
tofore, and that their strength in the
house would exceed 140, or less than a
On the other hand, the Association
Against the Prohibition Amendment,
through G. C. Hinckley, its general
secretary, claimed a gain of 80 "liberal”
votes in the house, which, it was as
serted, would give actual control of
the body to the modifications.
Chicago.—A continuation of Repub
lican control in congress, but with a
majority of 165 in the house slashed
to 15 and a senate majority cut in two
is assured by virtually complete but
unofficial reports from the election.
While the Republicans retained only
seven above a house majority of 218
and five above a senate majority of
48 they will have In the next congress
a plurality of 18 over the Democrats in
the house and 11 over the Democrats
in the senate.
Tight races and belated returns left
the exact majorities in doubt for two
days, but returns from the Third Kan
sas, the last district to report in the
congressional race—apparently assur
ing the election of W. H. Sproul—in
creased the Republican majority in the
lower house from six to seven.
With the third Kansas district In
the Republican fold, the sixty-eighth
house of representatives probably will
be composed of 225 Republicans, 207
Democrats, one Socialist, one Farmer-
Labor and one Independent.
These returns forecast that the next
senate would have 53 Republicans, a
loss of 7, 42* Democrats and one Farm
er-Labor senator from Minnesota.
Harding Issues Proclamation
Washington.—President Harding Is
sued a proclamation to the American
people in connection with the annual

gospel of service based upon divine in

Ross Elected Wyoming Governor
Cheyenne.—W. B. Ross, Democrat,
was elected governor of Wyoming, It
was shown by re turns gathered and
compiled here. The last hope of the
Republicans that their candidate, John
W. Hay, could overcome the Ross lead
was dispelled by the receipt of re
turns from Uinta county, which had
been counted a G. O. P. stronghold.

in the east was the defeat of Governor
Miller, in New York, by Alfred E.
Smith, the Democratic governor of two
years ago. Smith carried Syracuse,
the home city of Governor Miller, by
6,704 votes. Governor Miller con
cedes the election of Smith.

Hitchcock, of Nebraska, the latter vice

tion, ranking minority member, for

Volstead Loses to Minister
Washington.—Senator Volstead, au
thor of the prohibition enforcement I
law, was the only Republican commit- I
tee chairman to go down In the nip
and tuck race to control the next
house, but he fell before an Independ
ent minister-candidate, self-proclaimed
drier than himself. This fact often
was overlooked by those who professed
to see In the defeat of Volstead a pun
ishment for the dry law.
While they had been expected to
take a big hand in the election, the
women of the country were unable to
elect one of their number in the helter
skelter race for seats. There will be
no women in the next congress. Alice
Robertson, of Oklahoma, and Winifred
Mason Huck, of Illinois, elected to fill
the remainder of the term of her
father, the late William E. Mason, ex
piring next March, will go out then.

IN BIG NINE BLAST
TRAPPED MEN BURN MESSAGE
BY TORCH: “LOOK BE
14 ARE BROUGHT UP INJURED
Rescuers Believe Unrecovered Coal
Diggers Are Back of Brattice
They Built in Flight After
Spangler, Ta. —Fifty-five ot’ the 94
miners who went down into the Reilly
mine of the Reilly Coal company here
a few minutes before the workings
were torn by an explosion, are unac
counted for. Twenty-five, it is said,
had probably been killed and 14 had
been taken to a hospital badly hurt.
Thirty pale and weary survivors
from the Reilly Coal company’s mine,
most of them young men, lay in a
double row of cots in the miners’ hos
pital here, anxiously watching the en
trance to the mine. They were the
known survivors of the 9-1 miners who
went into the mine in the morning, a
few minutes before a terrific explo
sion. The exact number of dead was
still undetermined, although it was the
opinion of rescue leaders that perhaps
50 or GO had lost their lives.
Their vigil began when the first
eight were brought to the hospital.
The entrance of each stretcher meant
that another survivor had been
dragged from an underground sea of
Hope that some of the missing men
were still alive was reflected in re
ports which came to the surface that
a brattice had been built of old timbers
by the miners after the explosion cut
off a part of No. 8 heading to the left
of the main entry.
“Look behind this wail,” had been
burned In a smooth place on a timber
by an acetylene lamp. Knowing that
experienced miners would take every
means to help their rescuers, this
startling sentence was taken to mean
that the men were still alive.
But no attempt was made to tear
down the brattice, for the main entries
were filled with gas and the United
States bureau of mine engineers feared
that such a course would send the
deadly poison to where the men, al
ready weakened by hours of anxiety
and unprotected by oxygen helmets,
Every effort is being made to locate
all of the living. As soon as that has
been done, the work of removing the
dead will commence.

GOOD POINTS ON
Valuable Food Deserves to Ap
pear Frequently in Menu—
Not Merely a Garnisn.
IS NOT CONSIDERED LUXURY
Dan Be Made Stiffer and Whipped In
Less Time If It Contains Butterfat
Content of 30 Per Cent or
Prepared by the United State* Department
There’s nothing better than good, rich
cream for whipping, says the United
States Department of Agriculture,
which points out also that whipped
cream Is not merely a garnish, but a
valuable food which deserves to ap
pear frequently tn the menu.
"Bride’s cookery,” as one skillful,
sconombal housekeeper scornfully
intimated, is apt to be dressed up
with wb’pped cream to cover culinary
shortcomings. or because it lit an ap
petizing delicacy, easy to prepare; but
when properly selected, whipped cream
need not be considered a luxury, since
It adds to the food value of the dessert
or other dish In which it Is used.
Whipping Quality Tested.
Extensive experiments by dairy spe
cialists In the department have shown
that raw cream outranks any other
kind for whipping. While It will whip
fairly satisfactorily under certain con
ditions when It contains only 20 per
cent butterfat, cream can be made
stiffer and whipped In less time If It
is richer, with a butterfat content of
30 per cent or jnore.
A ftovor (rotary) egg beater Is the
only apparatus necessary to produce
good whipped cream, but the cream
should be kept ns cold as possible nt
•11 times. Its temperature should nev
er be allowed to exceed 45 degrees
Cream That Was Just Right for Whip-
Fahrenheit. Aging cream Improves the
results, up to the point when It tastes
sour. Cream In the city may be con
sidered to be at least one day old be
fore It reaches the consumer.
Pasteurized cream will whip, but It
must be higher in butterfat content to
equal raw cream In whipping quality.
Cream that has been homogenized, or
broken up into tiny globules by means
of pressure, will not whip nearly as
well; and If It has been also pasteur
ized Its whipping quality is further re
Use Sugar Sparingly.
Vanilla and other flavoring extracts
do not seem to affect whljjped cream,
but sugar added at any time during
the beating of the cream thln«» It.
Good quality whips will keep stiff,
or stand up, for several hours if kept
cold, but thin cream tends to fall soon
after It has been whipped. Cream of
u higher butterfat content stands up
better. Evaporated milk can* be
whipped, but it falls immediately.
Powdered cream when reconstituted
will not whip, even when it contains
as high as 40 per cent butterfat.
In selecting cream for whipping,
care should be taken to have cream
of satisfactory sanitary quality.
