Stricter liquor blockade is aim of government continued from Page one the suppression of rum running. The principle involved is an important one for of great Britain were India j Ferent to a conspiracy to violate american Laws there might be a reciprocal indifference exhibited in eminent is ready for important action soon to be announced. Before the step is taken however foreign governments will have to be advised of what is coming so that they May caution their nationals against engaging in conspiracies to violate american Laws. According to the prohibition enforcement office Here rum running has declined materially in the last few months chiefly because of the disputes among the rum runners themselves the growth of piracy among the adventurous Skippers of rum running vessels and the huge Cost of arranging for the shipment ashore of liquor from the larger to the smaller vessels. The wireless is the principal medium of communication but the government is exercising not Only a close watch on that radio apparatus of the rum runners but is keeping an Eye on the Small Craft. 4 Light Craft to be used. It is admitted however that the rum runners have had much the better of it in evading the government patrol especially in Florida Waters but the use of the Navy is expected to change that aspect materially All the submarine chasers and Light Craft which have been Idle since the War May be manned by the Navy and sent on the enforcement patrol. The administration has been hard pushed by the a a Drys to take this drastic step and the Drift today is toward Complete and effective use of the sea forces of the government to uphold the volstead act.

In spotlight at Lausanne Parley continued from Page one Johnny jump up a jump up from his bed into Bath and clothes sure Way to get rid of Dandruff girls if you want plenty of thick Beautiful Glossy Silky hair do by All Means get rid of Dandruff for it will starve your hair and ruin it if you done to it does no to do much Good to try to comb or Wash it out the Only sure Way to get rid of Dandruff is to dissolve it then you destroy it entirely. To do this get about four ounces of Ordinary liquid Arvon apply it at night when refining use enough to moisten the Scalp and rub it in gently with the Finger tips. By morning most if not All of your Dandruff will be gone and two or three More applications will completely dissolve and entirely destroy every single sign and Trace of it. You will find too that All itching and digging of the Scalp will Stop and your hair will look and feel a Hundred times better. You can get you can to comb it out liquid Arvon at any drug store. Four ounces is All you will need no matter How much Dandruff you May have. This simple remedy never fails. Learns that Moscow diplomatically sought an invitation to participate now j in the conference but the inviting Powers great Britain France an i Italy returned a polite negative. Russia was told it is said that she was invited to the first conference to discuss the Straits convention Only but that she publicly announced a refusal to sign this treaty on which All the other countries including the turks were in Accord that if any time before the adjournment of the conference Russia has changed her mind the conference Hall always will be open and the allies will be delighted to see her. There is no confirmation Here of a recent report that Georges Tchet Cherin. The bolshevik foreign minister will come to Lausanne anyway j even As an unbidden guest. May reopen judicial discussion. Economic and financial clauses of the treaty caused the collapse of the first near Eastern conference and these must now be aet ted. But the question of judicial guarantees for foreigners probably also will be reopened by the allies. Great uneasiness exists among foreign resident of constantinople and other Turk ish cities because they henceforth May be entirely subject to ottoman Laws without any privileged protective treatment. In an Endeavor to induce the turks to sign the treaty in february the French and the italians made last minute concessions by which foreign Legal advisers to be appointed to the Angora government would be informed of All arrests and All domiciliary searches affecting foreigners. In re Curzy on the British foreign Secretary had left Lausanne and great Britain whose Colony in Turkey is numerous never accepted this Concession and As the peace treaty was not signed both France and Italy consider this question still on the Agenda. Like great Britain they probably will insist that All arrests or searches of foreigners will be made by the turks in Accord and with the foreknowledge of foreign advisers. The solution of this question vitally interests american residents in Turkey who henceforth like others lose the right of being under foreign consular courts because the so called judicial capitulation have been j i abolished.
