OLD WAR CRY IS REVISED Prohibition Leaders Predict Big Surprise When Votes Are Counted in November. OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, WASHINGTON. D. C July 17. "Americanism versus Alcoholism" is to be the answer of the dry leaders of the United States to the appealing campaign slogan. "Cox and Cocktails," already echoing- throught the sub irrigated states of the east. Just as slogans counted-for much In the campaigns of 1314 and 1916, they are certain to be features of the contest of 1920, now getting under j headway. Looking over the slogans of the past, democratic managers have decided to scrap the one. "He kept us out of war," but they have found another which still holds a little salvage value for use among the leaders, though not safe for public parade. It was emblazoned on every piece of campaign literature which went out of the democratic national headquarters in 1914. It read: "War in the Ea.st, Peace in the West. Thank God for Woodrow Wilson." Old Sloftan Overhauled. By a little overhauling it is found to fit Quietly into the exigencies of the present campaign. As remodeled, however, it can only be a warcry for the leaders whose strategem ealls for promises in the east of the return of the good old days of the cocktail and the highball and assurances to the arid west that "the law .will be rigidly enforced." if- Mr. Cox is elected. Tne"p'afmTSSoTbgan expresses the plan of political strategy in far fewer words than it could otherwise be -told, being "wet in the east, dry in the west. Thank God for Jimmy Cox." This campaign is to offer many original features. This will not be the first time that an entirely gastric issue has forged to the front in a national political contest, but it comes forward this time in a new form. McKinley made his appeal in 1896 to the hunger of the masses, and now we have another Ohio candidate, Mr. Cox, Seeking to play on the thirst of those whose parched tongues are palsied to every tune except that rasping and unmusical chorus, "How Dry I Am, How Dry I Am." Conditions Different Now. , McKinley won because hunger in those days was universal, with fac tories closed down and "For Rent' signs on every other shop door. The starving workers got a thrill out of that sententious inscription which la beled Mr. McKinley, "the advance agent of prosperity.' Opponents of the saloon say, how ever, that conditions at this time -are not at all analagous with the period of 1896. It is asserted that Mr. Cox and his supporters in Tammany Hall and else where in the east over-estimate the number of voters who, standing at the verge of hydrophobia, are waiting eagerly and anxiously the day in No vember when they may be able to make sure of the installation of a wet president in the White House. Since the nation went dry it is de clared that many who formerly op posed prohibition have been won over (Concluded on Pase 8, Column 1.) No THANK YOVjl 5M . . H .!

AMERICAN PILOT SKILLED In Every Minute of Both Contests Heels Are Shown to Green Invader From England. SANDT HOOK, N. T., July 17. Ex piration of the sailing time limit saved the British challenger. Sham rock IV. from apparent defeat at the hands of the cup defender Resolute In the second meet today of the 1920 regatta for the America's cup. The defender, skillfully handled by Captain Charles F. Adams II, had put more than, a half hour's sailing oe tween her and the challenger and was breezing home under mainsail, club topsail and balloon jib, when the race was officially declared off. at 7:25 o'clock. Under the rules the 30-mile tri angular coarse had to be covered within six-hours by the leading yacht to make it a race. The time limit would not actually have expired until 7:46:28, but a little more than 20 min utes before that hour. Resolute had nearly eight miles to sail, and the committee boat hoisted the "no race" signal. At that hour Shamrock IV was more 'than two miles from the stake that would have sent her' on the last leg of the race. Score la fiot Changed. The score still stands Shamrock IV one, Resolute nothing. Shamrock IV having captured the first race Thurs day when Resolute was forced to drop out because of an accident. But the score does not tell the re spective achievements of the two boats to date. In every minute of both races Resolute has shown her heels to the' green "Invader. Ameri can, yachtsmen are loud In their praise of Captain Adams and the sloop he commands. Today's near race was run under conditions ideal in every particular save the essential one of a stiff breeze. A bright sun shone down on the glassy surface of the Atlantic. The great armada of pleasure craft rode at rest, their brasswork and varnish glinting in the sun and their flags and pennants flapping idly. A little fleet of airplanes and one lone sil versided naval blimp dotted overhead. Shamrock on Line First. Shamrock towed by a tug led Resolute to the starting point at Am brose lightship. But that was the only time she was ahead. So still was the air that Shamrock IV had to call on her tug for aid after she had been cast off. A few -minutes before noon, when the race scheduled to start, the committee or dered a postponement. At 1:30 a breeze came in from the southeast and the committee hoisted the pre liminary signal. Captain Adam again appeared to have out-maneuvered Captain Will iam P. Burton of Shamrock at the start, and got Resolute off in the coveted weather berth, nine seconds ahead of the challenger. The defender began a steady gain on Shamrock IV, almost immediately as the two sloops headed out to sea on a lonjg port tack. Resolute steadily outpointed Sham rock IV, edging into the wind, while her rival fell further and further to leeward. Resolute led from the start. (Concluded on Pare 5. Column 1.)

NEW TOPICS OF THE Bookkeeper Tses Screwdriver to Work Lock, but Outlaw Slakes His Escape. STARBUCK. "Wash.. July 17. A lone robber, wearing amber glasses, entered the Starbuek bank shortly before noon today and after locking the cashier. C M. Zintheo, the book keeper. Miss Gladys Brotherton of Walla Walla and C. II. List, a cus tomer in the vault, robbed the cash drawer of between J3000 and $3500, all in bank notes of less than $100 denomination. Zintheo released himself and the others from the vault within five min utes, with the aid of a screwdriver, by taking the plate off the combina tion and moving the tumblers with his hand. With only a meager description of the robber, the officers were handi capped in their search, which was started at once.

He wore a blue shirt and work clothes. No one saw him enter the bank or leave. The fact that the robber apparently van ished Into thin air after he stepped out of the bank leads the officers to believe that he may have been no stranger in Starbuek. Zintheo kept a screwdriver in the vault for just such' an emergency While he was working his way out of the vault he could hear the robber at work In the bank. The sheriff at Dayton was notified and descriptions of the robber were sent out broad cast. COAL MEN WARRANTS OUT 35 Companies and Officers in West Virginia Are Named. CHARLESTON", W. Va.. July 17.
