Portland Attorney Has Important
Role in War Frand Cases.
THE OKEGONIAN NEWS BUREAU,
Washington, D. C, Oct. 7. Ralph
E. -Moody of Portland, Or., will have
a conspicuous part from now on in
the preparation of war fraud cases,
it has been indicated by the de

As a special assistant to the attorney-general,
Mr. Moody had
much to do with assembling the
evidence and drafting the papers in
the case filed this week against

BEER, WINE, - OPPOSED

Legalized Sale Would Mean Bill
of $3,000,000,000 Each
Year, Says Preacher.
ROCHESTER, N. Y., Oct. 7. "If
the use of beer and light wines
should again he permitted in this
country, we would have a national
drink bill of 15,000,000, 000 a year;
the saloon would be with us once
more; whisky also would come back,
and we would have a new evil in
the widespread drinking by women."
These statements were made here
tonight by the Rev. Deets Pickett,
research secretary of the board of
temperance, prohibition and public
morals of the Methodist Episcopal
church, In an address to the dele
gates assembled for the Genesee
conference of the church.
Supporting his allegations Xc
Ptckett eaid In part: ,
"When the nation closed the
saloons our drink bill ,was nearly
J2,600,000,000. The present drink
bill in Great Britain, with about
40,000,000 people. Is 478.000,000, or
approximately $2,250,000,000, which
we understand, js practically double
what it was before the war. With
increased prices and greater con
sumption, due to after-war tenden
cies, there is no doubt that our
liquor bill would be $5,000,000,000
annually, not including the inci
dental losses to the people caused
by the renewed traffic. According
to Charles Ienon of the American
Federation of Labor, the working
men of the United States con-,
tributed 70 per cent of the drink
bill In pre-prohibition days. What
would It mean to lower the standard
of living of our people, particularly
of our working classes, to the tune
of $5,000,000,000 at one time?
"The American saloon was a beer
saloon, not a whisky saloon. All of
its institutional evils, including its
brothel accompaniment, its gambl
ing hells and side-entrances for
women introduced by the brewery
owned saloon, would thrive just as
well if not a drop of whisky were
sold. You cannot open 200,000
saloons In this country and keen
them from selling whisky. The
saloon never obeyed any law passed
for its regulation except the law
compelling it to pay a tax, and the
evasions of that were notorious.
"We " would have a new evil in
widespread drinking by women." Dr.
Picket declared. "The American
woman was kept out of the Ameri
can saloon. The American man
considered her too good for the de
bauching influence of beer. Very
few "respectable" women drank at
all In America in the old days. But
the old standards of conduct for
women are passing away under the
Influence of the new feminism, and
we have not yet had time for the
establishment of new standards. In
this transition time, the influence

South Pasadena Woman Launches
Unique Social Movement.
SOUTH PASADENA, Cal.. Oct. 7.
A grandmothers' club Is being
formed by Mrs. J. P. Brush, who is
not a grandmother, but who believes
there should be more diversion for
elderly women. She says it is the
first club of the kind to be organ-iwfi-anvwhere.
Ages of members are expected to
range from 73 to 88, from present
indications, but no grandmother
will be barred because of youth.
