Republicans Will Swing To South Washington —With a decision to endeavor to make permanent the results of the recent campaign in the South and to build up a virile party organization there, the exe cutive body of the Republican na tional committee adjourned today without settling the southern com mittee posts. A statement issued by Dr. Hu bert Work, chairman of the Re publican national committee, said that the decision to fight for a stronger foothold iiv the 8outh was inspired by "the demands from people from virtually every south ern state' to become permanently identified with the Republican party." There was no reference, however, in his statement to the disputed posts of national committeeman and commlmttecwoman from Geor gia. George F. Flanders of Swains borev Ga„ is seeking the place as national committeeman to replace Ben Davis, Atlanta negro, who has thrown his support to Flaunders against J. H. Watson, another ne tfto. Results Discussed. Dr. Work said the committee had discussed “at. length the many gratifying results of the election, particularly the party's success tn breaking the solid South.” "This result tvas so Impressive and so encouraging," he added, “that every influence within its power not only to make these results perman ent but to encourage and build up virile and militant party organiza tions throughout the Southern states. “This is in response to the de mands from people from virtually every southern state to become per manently identified with the Repub lican party. One of the conse 1 quences of the victory will be in ! creased southern representation In ■ national conventions." t When Dr. Thomas A. Jaggar. dl ( rector of the Hawaiian volcano ob 1 servatory, predicted, the other day, ’ that there will be an eruption of ! either Kilauea or Mauna Loa this ■ year, scientists paid attention, for his prophecies with regard to the ' action of volcanoes have been ful • filled with remarkable consistency l in the past. “A volcano is not a clock.” he explained. “The interval theory Is based on certain laws of nature such as those that deter mine the space Intervals of ripple ' marks in the sands of the sea or > the time Intervals when they break • rhythmically on the beach " Something To Think I About Next Civilization By BRUNO LESSING V.. .. "New Commentary’’ on the Holy Scriptures haa been published by some of the most learned and de vout scholars of the Church of England. The stories of Jonah and the whale, of Noah’s ark, Belshazzar's feast and the Tower or Babel are dismissed as myths, without his torical foundation and Impossible to believe. Moses did not write the Pentateuch and Methusalah was not as old as be claimed. On the other hand, the biblical story of the raising of Lazarus is "accepted with all Its implications as the climax of all the miracles of healing." And Lazarus was sup posed to be dead. So, you see, these learned and devout scholars did not shatter all the pillars of modern religion. No comment Is made, in this new publication, upon this passage in St. Matthew: “Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swal low a camel.” Here, however, is a real fact. Prof. Garstang, the famous archaeologist who has been excavating in North ern Palestine under the auspices of the Liverpool Institute of Archaeol ogy, returned to Jerusalem, recent ly, and reported that he had “dug up” the ancient site of Hazor which Joshua conquered. The Old Testament states that Solomon repaired Hazor. Prof. Grastang found the walls of Sol j omon’s period resting on top of the ! former Canaanite ramparts. | Needless to say he found no evi | donee that Joshua had made the I sun stand still. i An open letter to my friend i Clem Horst of San Francisco: j Prominent Southern politician claim that violation of the 18th i amendment is more serious than violations of the 14th and 15th amendments. Because congress passed a Volstead law to carry out the sentiment of the 18t.h amend* ment. And congress never passed a law to carry out the sentiment of the 14t4v and 16th amendments. You are known to be as strong for the cause of temperance as you are known to be against the ty ranny of Prohibition. You have wealth and leisure and access to the sources of accurate informa tion. Will you be so kind as to com pile for me a list of the more Im portant laws of congress which are flagrantly violated throughout the United States? I merely want to WTite an article showing that those who harp on the Prohibition law are fanatics or frauds, in so far as their professed regard for law enforcement is con cerned. I know the tune but I haven’t the time to look up the words of the song. Movie Show At LaUltnore.

Edwards, Atty. Star Advertising Pays Hoover Term Will Test Prohibition 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 sec. Herbert Hoover Boy Ha* A Tough Break Pompton Lakes, N.

Mrs. Harvey Ferguson rushed upstairs where little Jane had been playing with her little brother Tommy; Mrs. H. E. Ferguson’s lit tle daughter, Naomi, and Mrs. Hart ness’ little girl, Marion.

Englishman Hears From Dead Wife She Enjoys “Recuperation” After Death, Met By Spirit Children, 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 ism said. “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 life 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 mage sale of Queen Mary’s hats.— New York Evening Post.
