(AP) A complete reorganization
of the bootlegging Industry In I
Oregon was predicted tonight byj
George Nuener, United States dis
trict attorney, because of the new
Manor law enacted by the last
session of congress' making it a
felony instead of a misdemeanor
to sell liquor. The law increased
I the maximum ' penalties to five
years and a $10,000 fine.
Already the law is having a de
cided effect on the, Portland re-
tall bootleg Industry. The max
imum under the former law was J
six months and a $500 fine.
Smaller retail dealers, Nesner
said, have been forced to curb
their activities, whieh even at its
