WASHINGTON, D. C., May 29.— Another dry senator, Oddie, Republican, Nevada, ^today joined those who declare they will vote' to submit an amendment to t'he Constitution repeal- Ing or modifying the eighteenth amendment If their states ask It. ' Oddle Is the third senator to take this stand in as many days. His predecessors were Senators Walsh, Democrat, Montana, and Jones, Republican, Washington. Most of the other senate drys refused to comment publicly on the announcements made by their colleagues, but privately opposed them. "My state has voted dry and later voted in favor of modification, and i consider it the proper thing to follow l.he mandate of my state when it is clearly defined," Oddie told the United Press. He has been considered a stalwart dry, although in 1926 his state voted 18,000 to 5,000 that prohibition was a failure, and that congress should call a constitutional convention to amend the eighteenth amendment. ' Eight years before that, in 1918, Nevada voted 13,000 to 9,000 to forbid the sale of intoxicating liquor. Jones announcement, the first of the three, has created a sensation on Capitol hill despite the fact thai; Jones denied it represented any change of attitude on his part. Notwithstanding this wet leaders regarded his announcement and the similar statements from Walsh as great victories. Other dry senators asserted, However, that wet activities in Washington and .Montana had caused these announcements, and indicated they would not comment as long as their states remained apparently as dry as ever.

DIYORCE PROBLEM IS HARDJO FACE Just What Attitude to Take Is Matter Giving Concern to General Assembly of; Presbyterian Church. By OWEN 1.. SCOTT. Staff Correspondent. (Copyright, 1930, by Consolidated Press Association.) CINCINNATI, May 29.—Just what the church should do to meet the Increasingly perplexing problem of marriage and divorce in its modern setting is a matter of special' concern to the 142nd general assembly of the Presbyterian church, meeting here today. "What shall be our attitude toward necessary restrictions-on the marriage relation? How far shall we admit that marriage bonds are at the disposal of personal desires? How far shall personal wishes be restricted by a spiritual and social obligation?" Dr. Cleveland B. McAfee, retiring moderator of the church, asked -of the assembly. He was answered in part by the findings of the church- commission on marriage, divorce and remarriage, which termed the present situation in the marriage mart "critical," asserting that "Christian ideals on the relationships of men and women have not only been criticized, but have been discarded by vast numbers of our population." ' The statement was made that the "one voiceless social force during these chaotic years has been the church." This commisslonr after a year of study, would meet the problem by projecting the church into an educational program for the young men and women. It would remove none of the restrictions on divorce, and would modify only one of the conditions of the church "standards"—the one which declares, "therefore such as profess the true reformed religion should not marry with infidels, papists or idolaters." Suggestion that this requirement be omitted has occasioned opposition because the Catholic church insists that a marriage between a Catholic and non-Catholic is not a marriage, unless performed by a priest. Birth control has its place, In the opinion of the commission, which says, however, that "it still remains true that a baby in the home now and then is a splendid diversion for those suffering from an uneventful marriage." There is a link between birth control and divorce which the churchmen see and deplore. They believe, however, that the church can take a much more active part in preparing youths for marriage. "Pre-home courses conducted by the public schools, by the church, or other local agencies, would go far to anticipate difficulties which may arise later on," the commission says. "A complete rewriting of education, especially for young women, will probably have to be made. Colleges will be forced to give more attention to the science of home making. "Too many of us clergy have performed marriage in the name of Christ without properly looking Into the moral fitness of the candidates. It is possible for the pastor to't'orm classes in which he may give young people of proper age the ideals and facts of marriage, talks on personal purity and sex life and present the Christian morality at every step as it may appear in the discussion. The silence of the clergy on these important themes is one of the ominious signs in all this horrible catastrophe which has overtaken us." The Presbyterian church permits divorce on two grounds only, adultery and irremediable desertion. There would be no loosening of this standard. As for remarriage of divorced persons, the conclusion reached was that it is' impossible to standardize that matter, with decision up to pastors. But the church deplores the laxity of divorce now prevailing and condemns the deliberate steps taken by married persons to secure divorces in order to remarry. A thorough blbliograph of books, telling ministers, parents, and young men and women what they should know about the subject, has been prepared by the commission. PLANS PERFECTED FOR MEMORIAL DAY (Continued from Page 1.) pense music at the pavilion In the evening. Occasion at Duncnnsville. Duncansville's pageant will march to Carson Valley cemetery in the morning where appropriate ceremonies will be held, ministers of the town churches and of the Carson valley churches participating. The principal address of the day will be by the Rev. G. B. Harmon, Lutheran pastor. Sons of Veterans of Duncansville will go to Newry at 11 o'clock to decorate graves there. The usual Memorial day exercises will be held at Bellwood. A procession will form on South Cambria street and will move at 9 o'clock over the principal streets of the borough to Logan Valley cemetery. Ministers and war veterans will participate in the preliminaries and Congressman J. Banks Kurtz is.expected to deliver the principal address of the day. Graves will be decorated by Boy Scouts. The parade at Williamsburg will move at 9.30 o'clock, starting at a point near the hotel and proceed in turn to the four cemeteries of the town where the graves will be dedicated and suitable ceremonies held. The band of the town will lead the parade, public and church schools, patriotic bodies and veterans to form the lineup. Ffankstown ceremonies will be held at 2.30 o'clock in the afternoon at the cemetery with Rev. Burleigh A. Peters of this city as the speaker. The Memorial day address at Roaring Spring will be delivered by Rev. A. L. Thompson, pastor of the United Brethren church at East Freedom.

Ministers of the town will assist in the ceremonies; all schools and patrlotc bodies will march and graves of veterans in all cemeteries will be appropriately decorated. SHALL SENATORS LEAD OR FOLLOW v (Continued from Page 1.) imerits of prohibition, it has worked its way this year to an issue of prime political importance. The wets are following the group idea and pushing into various state campaigns with all the actual and potential threatening they can do. Senator Walsh of Montana is up for reelection. He will have a Republican wet in opposition. Senator Jones saw a Republican state convention take the wet point of view. He thought it was not representative of the sentiment of his state. So he suggested that a referendum could tell. He has remarked since that he is neither urging a referendum nor changing his own point of view about prohibition. Yet it amounts to a challenge to his state to try a referendum to determine the popular will, assuming of course that the minority who vote in elections 'really reflect popular sentiment. For a long time United States senators have been torn between conflicting desires, namely, a feeling that they should vote their own convictions or that they should follow the wishes of the people of their states. The tendency lately has been to subordinate personal conviction and leadership to the will of the state as expressed in conventions or primaries. This is one reason why so many congressmen, personally wet, have voted dry. This lias attracted a good deal of attention, but only this week have conspicuous examples been given of those who will remain personally dry but who may be compelled to vote wet.
