Enforcement of Prohibition Far From
Easy. Letter From Kramer.
Washington, March 31.-DIfficulties
in enforcing national prohibi'tion in
clude 'hostile publfi sentiment, lack of
cooperation by .the states, 'bootlegging
on the iborders and issuance of too
many dealers' permits, according .to
John V Kramer, federal Iprohibition
commissioner. What he terms as his
"honest views" on prohibition were
given iby Mr. Kramer in a letter to
Senator Capper of Kansas and made
public today by the latter.
Commenting on charges that liquor
was being sold openly by 393 New
York saloons, Mr. Kramer detailed the
problems of the "dry" enforcement au
"In view of all these conditions
and circumstances," said Mr. Kramer,
"I believe we have made remarkable
progress during the year or more in
which 'the national prohibition act has
'been in existence. We still have much
to do and will have for years to come.
You can't turn the current of history
overnight. Anything that has fastened
itself upon political, econon.$c and
personal history of our country as has
'the liquor traflic can not be removed in
a day or a year."
Mr. Kramer said the Vols cad law
itself wiuq b d, that lie 'wn not ad
Vocating any radical revision of the
law .by congress and that enforce
ment problems largely were adininig
Too many permits for medicinal
i;relarations containing alcohol were
issued originally, Mr. Kramer said.
These have been reduced. Permits
for inanufacturing industrial alcohol
also are being curtailed and refused
to those selling illegitimately.
Summing up, M1r. K ramer saild lie
believed failures of enforcement dur
ing the past year were "due to the
administration of the law more than
they were to the law Itself."
Among recommenildations made by
the prohibition director to tighten up
enforcement was; "Removal of wihis
key to a few large and well guarded
storehouses; increase of prohibition
agents on the Canadian and Alexican
iorders, and enactment of prohibition
codes by all the states.
To the specifle charge that 393 sa
loons in New York are violating the
law openly, Mlr. Kraminer wrote Sena
tor Capper that "there are pflaces in
New York city where liquor is sold
more or less ol)enly but in none as it
was sold prior tol;hibition."
T bilk of the people. Mr. Knurner
explained must 'avor enforcement be

Mr. Kraner said that while con

whiche necessitated diischar'ge of about
