(The following message was
adopted by,75 representative lead
era at a conference on prohibition,
; held at Atlantic City October S
: .and 6. 1927):
-, The nation is approachjng its
great period of political discus
sion and decision. The crisis In
eonstitatlonal government de
mauds a national offensive. Or
: ganizatlon must be made adequate
1 for the occasion. ;lWe call for a
realignment of 1 our forces and
,fOT a unified command.
- Prohibition is not a theory: it
la a fact. The practicability of its
enforcement where not vitiated by
corrupt politics, has been proved.
.That It- is -a good law has been
demonstrated. By it labor has
been enriched, business enlarged,
and the public's savings increased.
.Morally, it . is the greatest social
adventure In history. .Politically.
It challenges a, free people to carry
out their own mandate. At its
iworst prohibition is Immeasurably
better than legalized liquor at its
best, and It Is the settled convic
tion of a large majority of the na
tion's voters that It shall be car
ried Into full effect.
We stand for the enforcement
of all law. The, issue joins in the
Eighteenth Amendment. The per
sonal liberty argument is specious.
Personal liberty must wait on pub
lic weal. and walk with law. To
concede that enforcement Is im
practicable Is to condone nullifica
tion. The alternative Is ordered
government or anarchy, and the
Constitution of the United States
,is not a jest. ,
j The friends of prohibition and
law enforcement demand positive
declarations In party platforms.
;They will strive to defeat office
seekers who are either negative or
silent. Representative leaders of
f4wenty-flve million women who
tMnre ieen added to the electorate

came'lnto force have joined In the

to the Eighteenth Amendment and

More Treasure Hunters In
Texas Today Than When
Spaniards Searched
The lure that drew Coronado to
the southwest still moves men to
search for buried gold in Texas.
There are more treasure hunters
In the state today than when the
Spaniards searched for the seven
cities of Cflbola.
" Police .have been called lately
to curb the activities of two serts
of treasure hunters here. One
group was captured in a ca've on
a farm one night as they were pre
Iaring' to dig for buried gold.
They promised to stay off tha
rancher's land.
Another and more mysterious
group has? eluded detectives. Four
armed nven have been digging at
nigh for some time along Menger
Creek, and all investigators have
been scared away by gunshots. De
tectives who went to the scene
one night found a hole 70 feet
deep, with tunnels driven out in
many directions. When they re
turned with ropes and ladders, the
hole had been fHHed. but prepara

By Marylla Chrzanowska

VILNO. Poland. (AP) The
Vatican has renewed its attempt,
begun in the sixteenth century, to
convert " the Russia Orthodox
church to Roman Catholicism
through the aid of the Polish
Catholic clergy and the formation
of an "Eastern-Slav Cult."
In 1595 when the union 'be
tween Poland and Lithuania em
bodying the present Eastern
marches of Poland was definitely
confirmed through an official act
in Brest a new cult was estab
lished to win over to Catholicism
the Orthodox population of these
marches. The cult was named
"Union Church" or "(treek Catho
lic cult." It was something like a.
bridge between the two creeds, ac
cepting all dogma of the Catholic
religion, but maintaining a num
ber of outer forms of the Ortho
dox church, such as communion
under the two symbols of wine
and bread, and marriage of
priests. The Jesuits soon were es
tablished in the east of, Poland
and Catholicism became the main
religion of its population.
After the partitions of Poland
one part of the Polish territory
with adherents of the Union
church passed to Russia and the
otner to Austria. Austria never
persecuted the Union church,
which has survived in the territory
and is the religion of the bulk of
Ukrafnians living in Galicia. Rus
sia, however, saw in the Union
church an obstacle to russificatlon
and prohibited it by reconverting
by force its adherents to the Or
thodox church.
The conversion to Catholicism
in these lands is based on the prin
ciple that the converts accept all
dogma of the Roman Catholic
Creed, but maintain without any
change the outer form of the Rus
sian Orthodox church, so church
buildings, dresses . of priests,
prayers and services all remain
without any change. The power
given to Bishop Przezdslecki In
December, 1923. was extended in
1925 to all Polish Bishops In the
east, and for the time being they
succeeded In converting 20,000
people and to form 14 parishes.
Twenty five priests work for the
new cult, 16 former Russian Or
thodox priests, two Uniats and
seven Roman Catholic priests.
The new cult, name a Eastern
Slav cult, contrary to the Union
church will have no separate hier
archy. Parishes will depend on
Roman Catholic bishops, together
with all Roman Catholic parishes
of the diocese. The Jesuits were
Invited once again to this conver

WASHINGTON. Students of
genetics found In the """National
Dairy Exposition at Memphis,
Tenn.. Oct. 15. to $2, an oppor-;
turtity for further investigation of J
the fifth vitamin, believed by some
to be inextricably linked with the
fertility of reproductive organs.
The element', known as Vitamin
E. has been found in sprouted oats
While tests have not been exten
sive enough for definite conclu
sions, the method; is said to' give
positive results. Federal dairy ex
perts have corrected breeding dif
ficulties in cows and heifers by a
systematic feeding of the germin
ated grain. Bulls have been reju
venated and their potency main
tained by the same process. i
R. R. Graves, in charge of dairy
cattle breeding investigations, ex
plains that sprouted oats, are fed
with a view to correcting a nutri
tive deficiency rather than to over
come sterility caused by patholo
gical conditions.
In their' undomesticated state,
Graves says, animals have a breed
ing season which accords closely
with the ' spring flush . of new
grass. Under modern methods
cows and heifers are bred at all
times of the year. Many cases of
nonbreeding may. be due to func
tional disorders occasioned by the
high state of .domesticity in which
the natural breeding season is ig
nored. The beneficial effect of
sprouted oats may be due to
stimulation of dietary conditions
natural to the normal breeding
period. j
Graves supplied the exposition
with data on the probability of an
increased milk flow from sprouted
oats rations, recently investigated

Life and Its Origin Not
Problems In Laboratory" '
Says Prof essorj
PES MOINES, la. (AP) Many
passages of the Blble contain
thoughts that conform exactly to
modern scientific truths, declares
Dr. E. O. Kaserman, new head of
the biology department at De
Moines University.
Des Moines university now is
owned (by the Baptist , Bible Union,
a strictly fundamentalist organiza
tion. Br. Kasejrman describes
himself as a non-evolutionist
rather than an anti-evolutionist
He takes the attitude that evolu
tion has not been proved, rather
than it does not exist.
He is completing a volume , on
"The Biology of the Bible," and
says he has found the Bible con
sistent with the latest develop
ments in the science of biology.
From the first chapter of Gene
sis, he said, the Bible "accurately
depicts the natural and physical
world as well as the spiritual life.
"In the fourth chapter of Eze
kiel," he continued, a mainten
ance ration is described. It is
entirely accurate from the point
of view of modern dietetics.
"Many of the Proverbs would
do credit to -a first class psys
lology -professor today." Scattered
through the book are references
to plant life that are scientifically
correct. In Exodus are found di
rections for the sanitation of the
camp of the Israelites that would
be up-to-date if phrased differ
ently. ' -: I
' ' Naturally the references are
not made in our everyday con
cepts, they are exact and without
error." ;
In a philosophy holding that
what cannot be seen does not ex
ist, the average man. Dr. Kaser
man declares, has gojfve from sup
ernaturlism. the' belief In a
higher being, to' naturalism, the
acceptance of only the tangible,
without realizing that the human
being is more than animal. j
The prevalent misunderstand
ing arises j when -j people i confuse
biology w?th evolution, which has
to do only with originals," he
said. "Evolution is; not a bio
logical, but a philosophical and
speculative problem. Biology gives
its attention only to what can be
found 5n the laboratory.
"I swallow Genesis and the
story of the creation whole. The
crassest modernist plunges into
snpernatnralism If he traces life
back that far. " ", j ;
