LITTLE ROCK.—Immediate war on I tho liquor traffic was urged by the I Rev. Arden P. Blaylock, pastor of' First Baptist church, Friday at the afternoon session of the Arkansas Baptist Training Union convention at Immanuel Baptist church. The Rev. Mr. Blaylock said it is ap- j parent that repeal of prohibition has, had tragic consequences. "We can legislate," the Rev. Mr. Blaylock said. "As. yat the liquor traffic does not have the entrenched political power it once had. The longer it stays behind legal entrenchments the stronger it will establish itself and the harder it will be to dislodge, We should strike and strike- hard now while public sentiment is arousing." "Drunkenness has increased in this | county 25 per cent, in Nevada county 500 per cent, in Hempstead county 300 per cent and in Logan county to such an extent that the problem is beyond power of officers to cope with. According to the sheriff of the county, only those "fighting drunk" are lock- eel up. "The false promises of the wet pro- pacandaists are fresh in the public mind. They promised to solve the bootlegger problem and remove the 'blind tiger' from the field. Instead i they have made his field more lucrative and given him a smoke screen behind which to operate. We have 'blind liters' mid 'legal tigers' with their eyes j wide open operating in the same field. Almost an average of JO per county , hiive been arrested in our state ae- I cording to the state files, and they i have not been curbed.

Laval told Italy's ambassador directly, it was said, that France would consider such an attack to be an attack on France, (Paris dispatches said M.
