Homi 18 states with new liquor laws rallied favorably to the invitation cf J. M. Br.iude. associate director of firmiice of Illinois. Standardization of liquor, exchange of ideas on cnforceiiiL'iit, plans for collection of slate gnllonagc taxes on interstate shipments, and other problems timing out of state enforcement, win IK discussed.

Two states found themselves, more or less by accident, without any slats liquor'-law at all. They are Louisiana and Nevada. NO CONTROL IN LOUISIANA prohibition, tr.e states found them-!

The present legislature may pass a state liquor law. DRUNKENNESS FALLS OFF In Nevada, old-time saloqns are running full blast, 'rhis state used to have a stringent dry law, which dollars in taxes lias come to Ken- atablc whisky at stale stores around tucky, mostly in manufacturers'I 70 cents a pint, or In Washington taxes, despite the state's constitutional dryness. Arizona repeated a "*it-down- to-drink" regulation, and came with New York to the old-fashioned "stand-up- and - drink" program, which has brought back bar-room days, though many of the ' slt- and-drink" states find Hint there is no real difference—that tables and stools flush with the bar-top or closely adjacent make a good substitute. % States which went into Ihe liquor business for themselves ran inlo an unexpected complication when tl:e U. S. supreme court ruled that tliey have to pay federal tnxos just like any private business. Revenues have been disappointing in most of the siatc-salc states. Ohio has had to discontinue several of its stores for lack of patronage, but nevertheless seems in a way to collect $2,500,000 a year from lesal Jiquor.
