Foreign Ships in Amer

Washington, Oct. 7. Masters
of shipping board vessels were or
dered today by Chairman Lasker,
by direction of the president and
in accordance with Attorney Gen
eral Daugherty's liquor opinion, to
remove and surrender to treasury
department officials all intoxicat

Washington, Oct. 7. The exe

today proceeded to enforcement
immediately of the interpretation
of the prohibition amendment
and the enforcement act by the
legal branch as prohibiting the
transportation or sale of . liquor
on American vessels, wherever
operated, and the presence of
liquor on foreign ships within
American territorial waters.
Acting on orders issued by
President Harding immediately
after publication yesterday of the
opinion handed down by the de

Lasker of the shipping board
moved to stop the sale or trans

London, Oct. 7 (By Associated
Press.) A sensation has been
caused by a letter from Andrew
Bonar Law, upholding the British
government's attitude in the Near
Eastern crisis, which is given con
spicudus publicity in all the Lon
don newspapers today.
The pronouncement is held
widely to be equivalent to a direct
threat it withdraw the British
troops from the Rhine and com
pletely terminate the entente un
less France comes into line with
the British policy in the Near
Bonar Law's position as poten
tial head of a potential conserva
tive government in the near fu
ture and his intimate relations
with several of the present cabinet
ministers are regarded as giving
his view special weight.
Indeed, it is surmised that the
cabinet members, especially Prime
Minister Lloyd-George and Colon
ial Secretary Churchill, had some
thing more than were previous
knowledge of the launching of
this utterance at the moment ot
Foreign Secretary Curzon's mis
sion to Paris.
"We are at the straits and Con
stantinople,", says the letter, "not
by our own action alone, but Dy
the will of the allied powers
which won the war.
"We cannot alone act as the
policemen of the world. "Our duty
will be to say plainly to France
that If she is not prepared to sup
port us we shall be unable to bear
the burden alone hut we scan
have no alternative except 10 imi
tate the government of the United
States and restrict our attention 10
afeguarding the more immediate
nterests of the empire." '

nary batter. A hole the width of
the base and the height between a
man's shoulders and knees was cut

throw three strikes he was allow
ed a new issue of balls. Most of
the boys were lucky to get one or
two strikes in out of the alx.
Robert Pollock was the most con
sistent pitcher for the Giants by
getting seven out of the eight
strikes credited his side.

HIGH SCHOOL MEN
(Continued on Page Seven.)
LIGHT BUT SWIFT
The Salem high school football
team will probably be lighter this
year than it has been for several
seasons past. It will be fairly fast,
howeier, and will have in its line
up a few individuals who show
considerable potential ability, ac
cording to "Scrub" Huntington,
mentpr of the local school.
Huntington comes to Salem
wtih an enviable record behind
him and fans are of the opinion
that, although this is his first sea
son with the locals, he will turn
out an organization that will
bring lines of worry to the brows
of rival coaches.
The heaviest individual in the
Salem lineup will 6e Linn Jones,
190-pound left tackle. Jones'
style of work holds promise for the
future. He charges fast and
handles his hands well. At the
other tackle probably will be Dale
AusmaTi who, though lighter than
Jones, gives evidence of develop
ing into a good linesman.
"Speed" Harris may be used at
left guard; Coffe at right guard;
Reinhart at left end and Rlngle
at right end. Captain Brown la
working at quarter; Post at left
half; Lilligren at right half and
Adolph at full. Adolph is passing
well and is getting his punts off
for fair averages.
No game has been arranged for
the immediate future. Sllverton
was to have been met next Satur
day but was postponed as a result
of internal strife at the Silverton
