BAR LB DUC, France, May 26.
(By? the : AP.) The result: of
the recent French election: was due
to a! heterogeneous political coali
tion 'which cannot survive in pow
er and to the fantasies of an ob
scure electoral- system. Premier
Poincare declared today before the

, In an address, considered his
final utterance as premier, M
Poincare asserted :,the new gov
ernment could not get away-from
the foreign policies which the out
going , organization -, followed for
two and a half years, and de
dared that; the new- government
majority would have to be' closely
watched but given fair play.

Los: Angeles-Druggist Loses

Right to' Rll All Prescrip.
LAV DOES NOT GRANT
"RIGHT" SAYS JUSTICE
Decision Sustains Power of
States and Municipalities
WASHINGTON, 'May '26 Muni
clpalltles are free to ' prohibit' the
sale' of intoxicating liquors upon
physicians prescriptions, - the su-
pretne court "ruled today.'
"In' an opinion by Justice Mc
Reynolds' it - stated that "neither
the 18th amendment nor the Vol
stead act grants the right to -sell
intoxicating liquor within a state
The opinion was handed down
in a. case brought from California
by , Merlin- W. - Hlxson; a - Los An-
geles druggist, to test an ordi4
nance of that city under which
druggists , are" prohibited from
furnishing more than half a pint
of Intoxicating liquor upon a phy-
sieians' prescription. Hlxson con
tended -that the Los Angeles ordi
nance was Invalid because! under
the 18th amendment as construed
by the 1 Volstead i law, t druggists
were authorized to deliver one
pint of intoxicating liquor upon a
physician's prescription. Any state
state law or . municipal ordinance
which would restrict 'this 'federal
right would, Hlxson asserted; de
prive him of" his constitutional
rights under, the 14th amendment
which guaranteed nil citizens equal
protection-, ofthe law; and pro-
tected them against being deprived
vi any ox tueir ngni witnour. aue
process of law.- .
Referrinrto the suggestion that
"congress, by the Volstead act.
granted? some right or; privilege
which is protected by the 14 th ami-
endment," and that such alright
"may not be' abridged by( state nor
municipality." Justice McReynolds
stated that "Hlxson had failed to
raise any substantial federal ques
tion." i v '
"Certainly nothing in' that (Vol
stead) act lends color," the court
declared, "to the suggestion that
it" endows pharmacists with the
right to dispense liquors."

unsafe to the interests of the state
for the Oregon troops to train in
California camps at Monterey,

coast as , suggested by General
White : when his original camp
schedules were smashed, and Ma
jor General : Morton,' commander
at San Francisco, ordered that
Camp Lewis and' Fort Casey be
used. It was General Morton's
ruling that on account of the pre
vious arrangement of schedules In
eight states of the Corps Area,
making of an emergency camp
could not be undertaken and that
the Oregon troops' should join the
troops of other northwest states
at Camp - Lewis, with - the heavy
