mi lOLA, KANSAS ' LEGlSUTilRE IN A MESS BECAUSE ; OF VOTE STAND ' Shultz Sees Trouble m ' Offing Through No ; Referendum - rspecial political letter to Tlie . riElegister by A. L. ShuJtz:) Topeka, Kas., Mar. 31.—No doubt there would have been more en' :thusiastic cheering at the cross • roads had the legislature started ; -home a week earlier. Those closing • 'days probably corded up more trouble than all the rest of the session. While there is joy everlasting ' in the thought that the-legislature jlidnt actually do the state any gr^t damage, several trouble germs were deposited where they may : Ijother the poliUcaJ health depart- jnent sorely next. year. : .trobably the one spot that for forty years looked as safe as swim- .jnlng in a bird bath, was raUying around everything that proniised to put a new coat of war paint on the •/state's anti liquor laws. Next to • endorsing the cardinal virtues and • speaking favorably of the Golden Hule, tiny politician regarded as inore tlian half intelligent by his neighbors, has put his endorsement on prohibition when'Jhe wanted to get somewhere; No d(>ubt Kansas is •Still the me bright sjiot where that policy is an almost cinch winner. •-3ui the manner in which leglsla:- , tjive refusal to provide for a vole on proposed repeal of the eighteenth .imendment has kicked' up trouble, i.s nothing short of startling. Bight now—and from a purely Ijig; town reaction without expressions from out in the rural sec- .ilons—it looks as thougji the "referendum dcfcislon may .stir up about (IS much grief next year as anything that was or wasn't done during the entire legislative session. It iisn't so much a matter of how one views tlie situation porsonaliy. In Had in the house where the ^-'Acr- "ondum was killed, a' lot of life long drys voted to submit to proposed repeal. On the other hand a con- ;Sirierable nuihber of members whosi ;'t)er.sonal habits are on the wet side, aided in blocking a jjopular vote on repeal of the federal ary amsnd- -meut. Up to the time the house voted it ^idn't look as though the proposal ,to repeal the eighteenth ainendmsnt • Tvould have any more effect on Kansas than an Easter egg rolling on disarmament. Now the di -j-s and ;^wets are both up in the air and in . "a great many districts tiie questiozi .-9f a referendum, vote is going, to be the big issue when members of ,.the next house are elected. In fact bright at tlie immediate time there .is a fervent prayer among a good '•many legislators that some one of _ the special session possibilities may Jdevelop and provide another chance /•to vote on the proposition before - the 1934 primaries and general ^election. ^ r Here is the verj- peculiar situation C wiiich has developed. There is an o element of voters—no one knows whow strong—which ' doesn't, hold r^admiration, sympathy or resprectfor ; dnything .connected with tne eigh- i.1^cnth amendment. 'There Is an- o'thcr element—generally considered ; overwhelming; in this state—which , feels that Divine guidance put the dry pro^vision in the government ; con.stltution. Arguing witn' an ex. tremist on either side \s Just lost • time and energy. THE lOLA DAILY REGISTER, FRIDAY EVENING. MARCH 31.1983. ' sB^gBaanatBissaBBBB NlBWFANGLES (Mom'n Pop) GOOD NEWS! By Cowan 3.2, per cent beer goes over the bar in many states next weez. It is rather certain that attempts will be made to peddle the horrid qfciff here in Kansas. Dry forces are prepared to rush inMnediately to he courts for action. While congress has said that 3.2 per cent beer is non-intoxicating in fact, the Kansas courts have previously said otherwise. Just the effect which recent action of congress may have on prior state opinion may be doubtful, but as a speculative matter it looks as though folks who Want to guzzle down under the froth and foam, •will have to join pilgrimages to Kansas City, Joplin, St. Joe and East Atchison. Now the trouble seems to be that the big industrial states with pro: pounced wet sentiment are going to start a rally around repeal. "They - are- going to challenge the drjs to show their strength. They are going to point disdainfully toward Kansas and mention in rather unpleasant -terms that the footstool'of dry sen- ' tinlent is now uncertain in her con• Victionis because she refused to submit the question to a popular vote, s On the other hand a "lot of drys . themselves,are not satisfied. They • were confident that Kansas would •rpll up a vote for the eighteenth amendment that woiild prove that the state not only had failed to iiVeaken in her convictions, but had 'increased her faith- in a boric dry , nation. Tliey are going to resent action which blocked a chance to _ A'ave the flag of victory here at - home and in some measure, at ; offset triumphant shouts of wets in the other states. While the supreme court has upheld a decision to the effect that 3 per cent beer makes residents of tlie state Just as woozy as Frontenac deep shaft, the state legislature has, never fixed an alcoholic content. There are all manner of laws about mvning, selling, transporting or meddling with anything that looks alcoholic, but the percentage question ha,sn't been gone into. Some fniks^ with highly developed imaginations we pos.slbUities for a special session on thi.s point alone. A .sjK 'cl.-il session during the next 12 month;; i.s not at all improbable-but that will probably not be the basis for the call. One thing is ccrtaui. though. Any sort 01 a special session is going to .'itart a revival to erase the record oi t^he session just ended. Time is not likely to add to mental comfort of extirme wets or extreme drys as they rec.nll that Kansas cannot express herielf on proposed rcix;al. ' " Then there is the wet side. Strong. , qr weak, it lias' a side. The wets ••»-anted to vote. They had every- Ching to win and nothing to fose. < They derided acts of drys in block- I >jig a vote and asserted that nulli- . fication which had been denounced :_^«i -hi!e the eighteenth amendment ' 'ias in good standing, is nov.- prac- ' ticed. in blocking an expression con^ tcrning rei^eal. ' - ='Along in the next campaign Govi iimor Landon himself is going to ; Jace the necessity of stating a posi- ^ tion and bxplaiiung what was done ' br wasn't done at the slate house . during final days of the session. In mariy of the representative districts •of the state, particularly in the \ heavy voting industrial sections, the ': ituestion of a referend-am will be a . flat issue. That jwint Is just as 'j v -'cU defined now as though the elec- s tion were next week. So a good . ,,'-iiany people who guessed hastily •iJiay meditate at leisure. Nor is the situation m.ide less I: ^^fmf'iiilnt! by virtue of the iitcl that THE J.

Latpr. employed as a travelling com- pauioii, slie lost truck of her sister New York, Mar. 31. (APJ—Tlie stock market dipped in the late trading today, as rails were unsettled by Missouri Pacific's reorgtoi- zatlon petition. Many Issues were off 1 to more than 3 points, and the closing tone was weak. Transfers approximated 900,000 shares. While the Missouri Pacific issues had been so thorouglaly deflated as to suggest a reorganization, the move came quicker than expected, in view of the efforts to obtain funds for tomorrow's Interest payments. The utilities had begun to sag, in advance of tlie slumjj in the rnil.s, and the list gave way rather .easily. Discovery that the new su- ciirlUes regulation bill would apply to old as well as new-sssues also caused some uncertainty. The list had shown some indications of rallying eoi-lier. -with sugar, alcohol, tobacco and farm implement shares in seme demand, but these ,small gains were quickly lost. Among issues losing about 2 to 3 points were Consolidated Gas. Uniofi Pacific, New York Central, Santa Fc, Delaware & Hudson, American Telephone, Eastman, and Owens Illinois Glas.s. Issues off a point or more Included U. S. Steel, American Can, Allied Chemical, Case, Northern Pacific, Lackawanna and others. Drug, Inc., sagged only a fraction, in response to the Liggett receivership. Missouri Pacific preferred sold at 1--., off 1 point.
