Lack of GoOperation 5500 MORE MEN GET WORK By HERBERT FLUMMER ASHING TON Dec 11 Some of those who have watch ed the progress of the code gov erning the liquor industry through its various stages already are advo cating means of contrcl which go beyond those now set up or those to be made per manent later on by congress Some of the leaders in the drive which re sulted in repeal are included in this group One an ardent foe of prohibition who boasts he has missed but one important hearing for or against prohibition in Washington for more than a decade is among the most outspoken Well have national prohibition in 10 we wake up he says He has been a more or less grim spectator at all the hearings on the code here From what he has seen and heard he has grown afraid of what may come Brewers are for brewers alone he declares Distillers are for dis tillers Importers for importers and rectifiers for rectifiers Would Control Itself This man whom many credit with having done more than any one person toward getting Uw ques tion of repeal through congress and submitted to the states believes it is up to the liquor industry itself to handle the situation He visions and intends to work for the creation of an organization the industry which will cor rjpst anuses arise would be DAVIS MAY SUCCEED PEEK i Members of such would pit their own initiative deal with recalcitrants in the industry They would prescribe their own methods of punishment and devise means of keeping the industry at the highest level The goal would be not only to ob serve the letter of the law but if necessary go beyond it for the in dustrys own protection j Sound Money Bloc Republican leaders of the house and senate who have returned to A Washington recently put it down as a certainty that what they describe 1 as a sound money bloc will make its appearance early in the proaching session of congress ap They refuse however to predict its strength or who will be the lead era They prefer not to be quoted on the subject as yet although they talk freely in private All are unanimous In their opia ion that the battle over money this winter will settle an alltime record for congressional contests

livestock that is now im mediately available to the produ cers do extended injury to the state and work a hardship on the interior packers according to Jay E Decker president of Jacob JE Decker and Sons company The proposed bills senate file 155 and house file 170 are sponsored by livestock commission men who have seen business slip from their hands as a result of the development of the more economic direct selling and who seek by this added burden on the packers to win back thsir lost position the Decker executive stated Where Theyre liaised That the logical market for hogs is the place where the hogs are j raised is the contention of the Decker management It is upon the recognized soundness of this theory that the Iowa interior packers have been built up to their present im portance In the industry it was pointed out j The bills which were introduced in the house by Mcifinnon Booth Frizzell Bowers and Davies and in the senate by Roelofs and Chrys tal provide for the state
