MEASURE TO REVISE
BANKING IS PASSED
Washington, D. C. The house pass
ed the McFadden bill which would re
vise the national banking laws.
The bill, the banking policy ot
which had been indorsed by the Na
tional Association of Credit Men and
the American Bankers' association,
is designed to put national banks on
a better competitive basis with state
institutions, particularly with regard
to maintenance of branches. As report
ed to the house, the measure gave na
tional banks the right to maintain
intra-city branches where state banks
are permitted to do a branch bank
ing business, but the amendments put
forward by Representative Hill, repub
lican, Illinois, which the house accept
ed, placed restrictions on the mainten
ance of these branches.

TO VOLSTEAD ACT
Washington, D. C. Declaring diver
sion of alcohol the chief problem of
prohibition enforcement, James J.
Brit t, counsel for the prohibition en
forcement unit, has recommended to
the senate investigation committee two
amendments to the Volstead act de
signed to remedy the situation.
One amendment would limit denat
uration plants to alcohol distilleries
and to distillery premises and the oth
er would give the enforcement agency
complete supervision of the denatured
alcohol until it goes to the consumer.
Roy A. Haynes, field marshal qf en
forcement since early in the Harding
administration, seeniB likely to be re
placed by someone who heretofore has
viewed the government's prohibition
activities from a distance and who will
bring to the service enforcement opin
ions of his own.
Meantime it Has been revealed at
the White House in the most authori
tative manner that President Coolldge
would like to see federal agents give
their major attention to bootleggers
and not to hip-pocket flasks and that
he does not favor a bill reported by
the house judiciary committee making
it mandatory 'or courts to impose jail
sentences on those convicted of break
ing the Volstead act.
