A DECISIVE VICTORY If anyone thinks th a t - because of a few w e t spots in the United Staths and of the noise, th a t is m ade about bootlegging, th a t the real sentimen*- Of the American people is overwhelm- ingly wet, he is i,ii\-i;ed to a considera­ tion of the w e t and dry vote in' th e congress elected recently. In the Con­ gress t h a t begins w o rk the first Mon­ day of next D e cem b e r,. th e re are SI 9 dry votes in the House of R e p resenta­ tives, 111 w et votes and five that can­ not be classified. .The new Senate will have 74 dry votes and 21 w e t votes and there is one vacancy yet to be filled. The next Congress is dry then by a m a jority of three to one, the greatest m a jority it ever had. This result -was achieved in spite of all that is said in the w e t press concerning the failure of prohibition, in spite of all the en­ ergy expended and money spent by m e n eager to have th e corner saloon back or a condition th a t is closely akin to it. The sober thought of A m ­ erica is steadily proceeding in th e rig h t direction and in an o th e r decade, men will be thinking less of booze. W ets may argue th a t prohibition was obscured by other issues a t the last election, but th e r e ' is nothing to it. I t has been an issue in every elec­ tion, local and national, for the last twenty-five years. No national plat' form has been adopted w ithout a b a t­ tle betw een the w ets and the drys, and no candidate runs for any office from dog catcher to President of the U n it­ ed States, whose views on prohibition and law enforcem ent have not been ascertained. The constituents of ev­ ery one of these men, who are to com­ pose the new Congress, knew where they stood before election day, for both w e t and dry organizations m a k e it th e ir business to know and to broad­ cast w h a t they know. A decisive victory for prohibition • and law enforcem ent was scored at th e last election and it is pleasing to observe th a t both the great political parties have a share- in it, T A K I N G C H A N C E S Is President Coolidge justified in traveling to Chicago the way he did in order to save $1,700 for th e use of a private car? H a s anyone ever hinted th a t the $25,000 appropriated by Con­ gress fo r the President's expenses in the transaction of the public business is a piece of extravagance? Can the President of the United States be well protected from the possible bul­ let of a crank in an ordinary passen­ ger car as he can in his private car, and in order to save $1,700 is^it really econom ical for th e nation to take chances on w h a t m ight happen, in case Mr. Coolidge were laid low? There is need of econom y a t W ash­ ington, no doubt; President Coolidge is undoubtedly honest and sincere-in w h a t he says about it; but \there ire m a n y better ways in which economy can he practiced w ithout taking chances on^the President’s life.. Three presidents have been assassinated aiid one ex-president shot. f Pty* -rto ' I j JA1 If tvw!4| m YST'AM . \ ) r d I^IOPROGRMI The following is the radio program to be given Dec. 6.
