In its place Thursday was a newly-created division of investigation in the department of justice, absorbing prohibition enforcement, investigating and criminal identification agencies of the government Prohibition enforcement personnel has been reduced from a peak of 3,258 two years ago to around 2,000. These were transferred to the new division, but it was believed additional readjustments might be made later in line with the administration's confident belief the eighteenth amendment will be repealed by the end of the year. After repeal, the government's prohibition enforcement activities would be confined to protecting states which desired to remain dry. How many men this will require is uncertain at present. Federal enforcement has been relaxed considerably in recsnt months, altho Attorney General Cummings has said it will continue as long as the eighteenth amendment is in force. One of the last acts of federal agents under the separate .bureau was the. arrest here of seven persons, Including one described as the "brains" of a ring said to have been furnishing a major part of Washington's illicit liquor. Changing Sentiment Rapidly changing public sentiment. prospects of early repeal and the Roosevelt program of government reorganization dictated the decision to combine the prohibition bureau with other federal law enforcement agencies. About $160.000,000 was spent, more than 100 lives were lost and thousands were sent to jail in the prohibition bureau's hectic 13-year existence. The Roosevelt administration began to curtail the prohibition unit almost as soon as it came into power. Medicinal liquor regulations were relaxed, making it easier for individuals to buy whiskey from drug stores at prices of $1.75 to $2.50 a pint. TMs cost the bootleggers many customers, as did the legalization of 3.2 per cent beer. Five men headed the prohibition bureau, with varying success. They were in the order of their service, John F. Kramer, Major Roy Haynes Gea. Lincoln C. Andrews, Col. Amos W. W. Woodcock, and Maj. A. V. Dalrymple. The latter, a Roosevelt appointee, lost his job last nigbt. Consolidation Plan Under the consolidation plan, prohibition enforcement activities will now be .under the direction of John S. Hurley, heading the unit as a sub-division of the new division of investigation. J. Edgar Hoover, who has been with the justice department since 1917, heads the division. The shipping board and the Merchant Fleet corporation, former independent federal agencies operating 24 boats and giving financial aid to many shipping lines, were taken over Thursday by the department of commerce. Secretary Roper said there would be no immediate changes In activities or personnel of the agencies. The bureaus of immigration and naturalization in the labor department also were merged. Secretary Perkins said the consolidation would save more than $1,500,000 a year. She said 136 of 3,907 em- ployes involved would be retired on pensions Aug. 19.

Lewis, president of the United Mine Workers of America, at the second day of the hearings on propDsed codes for the bituminous coal industry. Lewis presented labor's side of the code, devised ;it conferences here last month with operators of union mineS in 1.4 states. This was one of more th?n 20 ccal codes under consideration. Lewis pleaded for a basic $5.00 .wage scale for all bituminous miners with-inside da\ laborers receiving $4.75. He also demanded a 30-hour week. "More and more the framing of codes is a matter of bickering and bartering, of surrendering just as little as possible, and grasping r.s ranch as possible," Lewis paid.

This aspect of the government's plans for transferring thousands of families from city tenements to their own. plots of ground in the country was revealed by Secretary of Interior Ickes in announcing appointment of Prof. M. L. Wilson of Montana State college as director of;,.-the. population redistribution program. .Wilson now is chief of the wheat production section of the agricultural adjustment administration. He will continue to direct that work until the wheat acreage reduction campaign is completed and first benefits are paid. '"The work Mr: Wilson is undertaking under my direction is .designed as a new step in American life," Ickes - said. "Altho the project is still in its formative stage, it is expected to develop nationwide scope and is to be dovetailed with the president's unemployment and public works programs. "This new unit in the interior department will deal with encouraging the dex'elopment of a .type of rural-urban arrangement where- industrial workers may be given -he opportunity to live on plots of land, near their place of employment, sufficient to produce gardens and part of their family living. Such subsistence homesteads will not enter commercial farm production and therefore will not disturb the national agricultural economy. • "Suburban colonies of this nature may be established by the federal government near several industrial centers eithe» thru quasi- governmental corporations or--else in cooperation with states and municipalities." President Roosevelt, long has I been interested in decentralizing industry. He believes many factories would find it advantageous to move out of cnies to places whore their employes could Jive in villages or on nearby small farms.

Prince lesato Tokugawa. premier peer of Japan and for 30 years president of the house of peers, said he believed "personal contact between world figures was the key to better international relations." "I should like to see eminent men of Japan to go abroad. To learn about other countries, seeing is much better than hearing. In this way the people of other lands would get first hand knowledge of Japan." j Short, stout and 70, Prince Toku. gawa is one of the most active men in Japan. For more than a quarter of a century he carried out the-exacting duties of president of the up~per house of the imperial diet, until he resigned this June. He long has been a firm friend of the United States, strongly advocating the most intimate relations between America and Japan.

Off Market WASHINGTON (UD—Emergency plans for raising hog prices were presented to the agricultural adjustment administration Thursday. Earl C. Smith one of the national corn and hog committee of 25, won impressive support in an administration conference of interested parties with the committee's plan to remove 2,000,000,000 pounds of hogs from the market in the next 12 months by paying a bounty to farmers on light pigs and brood sows. The plan provided for the marketing of 4,000,000 pigs ranging in weight from 25 to 100 pounds at pegged prices, ranging from $9 to f 6 per hundred in the 15-day period beginning next Tuesday. It also provided fop the immediate marketing of 1,000,000 sows above 275 pounds soon to farrow by offering a premium of $4 a head plus removal costs. "To make this effective,'* the plan „ proposed ' "we recommend that a very'substantial or restrictive processing tax be placed on 'all hogs; above 235 pounds' at the earliest possible date."

ROOSEVELT WAITS REACTION TO HIS Is Believed to Favor Use of Economic Weapons HAVANA (U2)— Cuba's passive revolution in defiance of rigid martial law and the power of the army behind President Machado continued Thursday. A bomb exploded on Banandras street, killing a passerby. Another bomb damaged property but caused no casualties. The general strike which has cut off the city's supply of milk, bread, meat and other necessities of life was still in full force and hunger threatened thousands. Police .drove many bread lines away from . bakeries in the center of the city and took over the bread supply. . The presidential proclamation declaring a state of war was posted Thursday morning. It gave "participants in seditious movements," 24 hours from.the time of the signing of tlie decree to deliver arms and ammunition -to the authorities.

(OE)— Still recuperating from the strain of four years as president of the United States, Herbert Hoover Thursday quietly observed his fifty-ninth birthday anniversary, without apparent thot of politics or affairs of state. Hoover remained secluded in his San Juan hilltop residence on'Le- land Stanford university campus, planning few observances to distinguish the day from others since his retirement. He returned Wednesday with a party, of close friends from a fishing trip on the upper Rogue river in Oregon. Fishing was not good. A small group of friends will gather Thursday night for an informal dinner. He took his usual early .morning stroll thru the hills that -fringe the campus, but will probably forego the evening walk. The last birthday Hoover spent here was in. 1928. There was little observance then, for he was preparing the important -address accepting republican nomination to the presidency, delivered in Stanford stadium the following day. Shoe Repair Shops Agree on NRA Code Ames shoe repair dealers met Wednesday night and agreed on a uniform schedule of business hours and on a uniform scale of prices in accordance with the provisions of the blanket NRA code regarding employment of help and establishing fair busines practices.

In Discussion With Ambassador HYDE PARK. N. Y. (TIE)— Wbrried -by ti&e riotous Cuban political situation. President Roosevelt Thursday awaited reaction to his " sharply worded pronouncement that in effect told the Machado government to restore tranquility or resign. Mr. Roosevelt was within reach ,^ of a telephone in the study of" his veowiitry hom% eager, to" •i.ea.f •• from the state department tfift s latest development^. He was gravely concerned over: the" tutn of events that threaten to embroil his administration in the affairs of the island republic. While the summer white house declined to embellish the brief statement issued after a conference between the president and Ambassador Oscar B. Cintas, the distinct impression was that its terse sentences were an invitation to President Machado to " act swiftly and decisively for peace and if unable, to make way for a successor. Meanwhile, it was insisted there was no change in the American policy of non-intervention so far as the sending of armed forces was concerned. The feeling here was that Mr. Roosevelt instead was prepared to use, if necessary, economic weapons. Observers leaned to the opinion that in order to accomplish his purpose he might offer aid in. stabilizing the Cuban economic situation provided political strife was brought to a quick end. That ^economic problems constituted a major portion of the discussion between Mr. Roosevelt and Senor Cintas was shown in the statement from the summer white house. It read: "The president and Ambassador Cintas discussed the Cuban situation especially in its economic aspects. "They feel that the problems of starvation and of depression are of such immediate importance that '0 every political problem should be met in the most patriotic spirit in order to improve conditions at the earliest possible moment. "The ambassador is communicating with his government." Thursday 'Mr. Roosevelt is expected to forego his watch of the Cuban situation to review the administration's financial and economic plans with Secretary of the Treasury William Woodin.
