Delay In Getting Action on
Bill Due To War Meas
ures Is The Reason
Washington, Auj,'. 20. A three
months reprieve tor the drink family
has been gained regardless of what ac
tion the senate takes oa the ''bone
dry" amendment,
I'nder the original amendment the
sale uf all liquor would have ceased
January' 1. The new- plan postnes the
day until April 1. with a similar dis
pensation for the manufacture of beer
wine, which was to cease Novem
ber 1.
No action can be taken until the
senate reconvenes. There is likely to
be considerable discussion and it may
be well in September before action is
taken. But dry leaders have agreed
that old dntes should be moved ahead
three months, giving the same time of
grace as was originally planned.
Beyond that there is little hope for
the thirsty, unless the war should end
before the first of the year.
When the tent vote w'us "taken diort
ly before the recess on sustaining a
ruling of the chair on the amendment,
the drys hud a majority of three votes.
A number of prohibition senators
voted nt that time in support of the
eliair. One of the dry leaders today
predicted a majority of H when the
vote is taken.
