Immediate Action Toward
Federation Not Asked
, By Labor.
Washington, Aug. 11 (United Press)
With many of its drastic features
modified, the house prohibition enforce
; mi' ut bill was reported to the senate
judiciary committee today by the sub
committee which has been revising it.
The senate subcommittee went over
the bill with great thoroughness, revis
ing the more extreme clauses.
The first modification by the senate
committee was the revision of the house
provision muking it a misdemeanor for
a person to allow his property to be
used if he has "reason to believe" it is
being used in violation of the war time
prohibition act. the somite requires
ithat a person must have "knowledge
of the illegal use of hi property before
he can be held liuble. " It was feared
that over zealous enforcement agents
might use this provision unfairly. The
senate also cut down the bond neces
sary by requiring only $1000 or less in
stead of the full value of the property.
