for to carry on Its incompleted study of the fed eral courts with a report that pre liminary investigation had shown prohibition cases to dominate the entire volume of criminal proceed ings in one state In a letter to President Hoover Chairman Wickersham said the commission had thot it inexpedient to apply to congress for more funds He indicated the needed sum if raised would be turned over to the American law institute The letter was attached to a pro gress report on the study of the courts prepared by a committee of nationally known legal scholars in cluding Justice Roberts of the United States supreme court Dean Charles E Clarke of the Yale law school chairman and President Robert M Hutchlns of the Univer sity of Chicago Tentative Analysis The report included as a sample a tentative analysis of conditions in Connecticut in which It was as serted that the total increase in the number of crimes has been taken up by prohibition cases Warning that the results from one district were not enough to justify conclusions for all the re port said nevertheless that the pro hibition law had given rise to e very special treatment of its cases in tho courts in which fines played a heavy role as compared with actual Imprisonments In his letter Wickersham in formed the president that the Rockefeller Foundation had agreed to donate half the 50000 needed to carry on the court study pro vided the other half would be raised from other sources and the Ameri can law institute step into the shoes of the now disbanded com mission List Survey Aims Listing the aims of the halffin ished survey Wickersham said It is said that the congestion of the criminal side of the federal courts is created by the prohibition laws and the Dyer act stealing automobiles and transporting them from one state to another Again there is no comprehensive study available which furnished a reliable answer to this contention It is said that the congestion in some districts is due to faulty ad ministration of the court rather than to jurisdiction of any particu lar class of cases All of these pres ent questions can only be properly answered after such an Investiga tion as shall result in procuring a body of reliable facts to furnish the basis of sound conclusions The report said 926 per cent of all prohibition cases were based on guilty pleas It concluded also that practically 80 per cent of the pro hibition cases were disposed by fines Thioves Rob Three Safes DES MOINES Aug 3 Thieves obtained about in a series of three safe robberies here Sunday morning Thj major share of the loot was stolen
