Washington.—The limitation on
the manufacture of medicinal whis

gallons as it was last year, Dr.
James M Doran, commissioner of
the bureau of industrial alcohol, an
The Wickersham Commission held
that one of the Irritations against
prohibition was caused by the re
strictions on the prescribing of li
quor by physicians and felt that
medicinal use should be left to the
Judgment of doctors
The American Medical Associa
tion frequently has criticized these
restrictions. However, the treasury
department must be guided by the
law under which about 1,600,000
gallons of whisky are used medi- j
cinally during the year.
Three rye whisky distilleries in
Pennsylvania and three Bourbon
distilleries in Kentucky have re
ceived permits for the 1931 produc
tion. Seventy per cent of the medic
inal liquor being produced is Bour
bon and 30 per cent rye
Dr. Doran said that there has
been no complaint of Irregularities
against distillers since whisky man

8,800,000 Gal'ons Stored.
There was on hand on Jan. 1 last
year 8,440.555 gallons of liquor.
About 0340.000 gallons of the old
stock was in warehouses at the be
ginning of 1931, the 1930 consump
tion having been 1,600,000 to 1.700.
000 gallons. All stocks amounted to
about 8,800.000 gallons.
The new whisky will be maintain
ed in warehouses for aging purposes
for four or five year, under treasury
regulations. By that time most of
the old stock will have disappeared.
There was about 1,500.000 gallons
of whisky In bonded warehouses for
medicinal use when the prohibition
amendment went into effect, ac
cording to the original guage. This
was reduced considerably by leak
age, evaporation and to a lesser de
gree by theft and other Illegal di
It was expected that leakage and
evaporation would reduce the 2,000,
000 gallons now being produced an
nually to about the normal demand
within four years.
70,000 Doctors Have Permits.
About 70,000 physicians now hold
permits to prescribe whisky. Dr.
Doran pointed out that while there
has been a small Increase increase
In the number of physicians who
obtain permits to prescribe whisky
there has been a slight lowering of
the quantity of whisky prescribed
by the Individual physicians, the
gross quantity prescribed remaining

The treasury oomiders that one
year's supply should be maintained
at all times. In allocating the
quantities to be manufactured, the
bureau acted on the basis - of the
concentration warehouse men's own
stocks and dlstrlbntioh
The bureau held that pooling of
manufacturing expense among the
concentration warehouse men would
obviate tfie need of granting more
than six actual distilling permits:
