Hoover Term Will
New York World.
The disappointment with which
Mr. Hoover's views on prohibition
have bern read by Republics
Journals m the East is genuine and
profound. During the campaign
of these journals had been able to
persuade themselves, possibly in al>
sincerity, that Mr. Hoover thor
oughly understood the difficulties
of enforcing prohibition in great
urban centres like New York, Bos
ton and Philadelphia, and that the
coniminvuon vr;cr. he proposed to
create to study the ‘'grave abuses"
of the law would start with a free
hand and be empowered to recom
mend some form of modification If
me facts pointed in that direction
These optimistic interpreters of Mr.
Hoover’s campaign speeches now
find to their dismay that the new
commission will have nothing to do
with the question of determining
whether in its present form the law
can or cannot be enforced, and that
the sole duty of the commission
wil lbe to recommend such changes
in "the administration of the law”
as will put more power back of it.
We are unable to share the sur
prise which some of these Eastern
Republican papers now manifest in
the unwelcome discovery that Mr.
Hoover’s purposes run parallel with
the purposes of the Anti-Saloon
League of America. For we did not
believe that when Mr. Hoover copi
mitted himself during the course bf
the campaign to a bone-dry pro
gram he took this step with a sly
w'nk in the direction of the Herald
Tribune. We believed that lie
meant what he said and that he
would prove that he meant it. We
credited him with believing that the
law should be enforced without any
change, that it could be enforced
without any change and that with
out any change he would bring all
the powers of government to bear
In an effort to enforce it. Accord
Ingly when Mr. Hoover makes these
facts clear beyond any doubt we do
not feel that he has suddenly per
mitted us to share a secret. Mr.
Hoover is a man of honor. If he
took a milltantly dry stand during
the campaign it was to be expected
that he would take a milltantly dry
stand upon his Inauguration.
Where his devout championship
of prohibition In its present form
will lead him it would be futile to
guess on his third day in office,
but there can be no possible doubt,
that It will lead him far\ beyond
the complacent policy of let-things
drlft which has characterized the
attitude of congress and the Cool
ldge administration toward the en
forcement of prohibition. Mr. Hoo
ver is a poor man to let things
drift. He is an excellent man to get
things done. He is certain to dis
cover that very little has been
done, really, to enforce prohibition.
Without going one mile from the
White House his commission of in
quiry will 'discover, for example,
that in the records of the approprl
tions committee of the house of
representatives there was entered
on last Dec. 5 the opinion of the
prohibition commissioner that the
sum of $300,000,000 annually would
be needed for a real effort at en
forcement. If Mr. Hoover is in
earnest in his wish to enforce the
Volstead act without amendment,
and if he is able to carry congress
with him on this new crusade, the
country is certain to see a pro
found alteration in the chief em
phasis of its federal budget. It is
certain to see new courts created,
new armies of enforcement officers
recruited, new penalties imposed.
For ourselves, we do not regret the
fact that the country is now about
to witness a test of prohibition in
a new mood and on an entirely
new scale. For since the American
people are not ready to modify the
law. the best alternative is a real
effort to enforce it. The Repub
lican party has accepted responsi
bility for such an effort. It has full
power. There can be no excuses if
it fails. Mr. Hoover has his man
date and we shall see what we shall

York, S. S.—"Miss Ferguson, I
think the wind has set your house
afire,” lisped little Jane Ferguson,
5, daughter of T. Mack Ferguson,
president of the Loan and Sav
ings Bank here as she entered the
room where Mrs. Harvey Ferguson,
Mrs. George Clark, Mrs. Mason
Clark and Mrs. Luther Hartness
were sewing Thursday morning.
Mrs. Harvey Ferguson rushed
upstairs where little Jane had
been playing with her little brother
Tommy; Mrs. H. E. Ferguson’s lit

ness’ little girl, Marion.
She gathered the children in
her arms and through smoke and
fire carried the tiny tots to safety.
They had been playing with dolls
and doll clothes and all these
things were destroyed in the fire.
The little ones cried bitterly
about their dolls.
From Dead Wife
She Enjoys “Recuperation” After
Death, Met By Spirit
London.—Lady Mary Lodge, late
wife of Sir Oliver Lodge, is en
joying a period of “rest and recu
peration” in a “happier sphere," Sir
Oliver informed the press.
Sir Oliver said he had received
his first "communication" from
Lady Mary who died three weeks
ago. The message was character
istic of his wife and indicated she
was met after death by the spirits
of her children, Raymond and Vio
let, who died earlier, the British
scientist and advocate of spiritual
“We are not presumptuous
enough to expect that an Ineffable
meeting with her pilot has yet oc
curred,” Sir Oliver added. In Sir
Oliver’s opinion, persons who die
are met by a “pilot” who acquaints
them with the order of the new
Sir Oliver mentioned his wife’s
message in a tribute to her en
titled ’Tn Memorlam,” in which
he said none of the family was un
duly lamenting her death.
“We know how eagerly and
lovingly she would have welcomed
the knowledge that our faith in
continued existence is absolutely
secured and that not a shadow of
a doubt troubles us,” he wrote.
The English are deeply attached
to their royal family, we are told,
but we doubt whether even that
would bring out a crowd at a nun
