vitalizing force behind the recent prohibition vocal izations of Senators Norris Brook hart and Borah were given added point when they were commented upon in a prominent New York newspaper this week This corres pondent did not state that Judge Kenyou had directly urged any of the senators to issue their state ments but the inference was strong that Kenyons strong views are the moving force back

doubt It is known however that on a number of points he and Chairman Wickersham hold widely divergent opinions was inspired by Kenyon probably not in a direct way but in the in direct form of suggestion It is indi cated too that this is the reason for the aboutface Wickersham was forced to perform He stated when the commission was formed that it would consider the advisability of the dry

this huge problem of enforcement of prohibi tion is not easy and will require much further study on no other grounds than to give the lawa fair trial there are obvious and uncoatroverted difficul ties abundantly poinfcd out b think should be met so as to make enforcement more effective Without prejudice to any ultimate conclusions we think that in the in terest of promoting the observance of and respect for law the national prohibition actmay well be strengthened and its effectiveness increased It is an anomaly that the cases are investigated and prepared by agencies entirely disconnected with and not answerable to those which are to prosecute them The age of discretion is when you realize that people who wish to see j you arent planning to give you any j Stale Journal Thus a few simple legislative enactments in our opinion could be made greatly to strengthen enforce ment of the national prohibition law Third Death ts Blamed On Parrot Fever NEW YORK Jan 13 jacteriologists

were reported to hode Island health authorities forth Adams Mass had the same number Jan 13 before the tenth anniversary of prohibition Presi dent Hoover today submitted to congress an array of opinions and recommendations for strengthening enforcement which brot that ques tion into ever greater relief than any of the recent controversies that have surrounded it In the main these tions prepared by the law enforca ment commission Attorney Gen eral Mitchell and Secretary Mellon were Reorganization of the federal court structure so as to give reliej from congestion Concentration of responsibility in detection and prosecution of prohi bition violations Consolidation of the various agen cies engaged in prevention of the smuggling of liquor narcotics other merchandise and aliens over tho American frontiers Expansion of Prisons Provision of adequate court and prosecuting machinery Expansion of federal prisons and reorganization ofiparqle and otfeer practices In submitting these recommenda tions thepresident said some sections of the American peo ple may disagree upon the merits of some of the questions involved every responsible citizen supports the fun damental principle that the law of the land must be enforced After exhaustive examination of the subject the president said the commission on law observance and enforcement and the officials of the department of justice and the trea sury department unite in the conclu sion that increasing enactment of federal criminal laws over the post 20 years as to which the violation of the prohibition laws comprises rather more than onehalf of the total arrests has finally culminated in a burden upon the federal courts of a character for which they are ill designed and in many cases en tirely beyond their capacity Result Is Court Delny The result is to delay civil cases and of even more import ance the defeat of both justice and law enforcement Moreover exper ience shows division of authority responsibility and lack of funda mental organization in federal en forcement agencies and ofttimes re sults in ineffective action The law enforcement commission in this its first and preliminary re
