12 CONGRESS LEFT DRY TROUBLES Litde Work Done in Last . Session on Prohibition Matters. MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 5 1931 INSURGENTS PLAN TO ORGANIZE WASHINGTON, March 5. The \session-of congress which ended yesterday accomplished little prohibition legislation but it left for its successor of next December plenty of highly controversial liquor matters.' -\' ~ All bills and resolutions die at the end ' of a conjrress but their authors seldom fail to introduce them again. Among those abandoned the past session was the proposal, originated by the Wickersham commission, for trial of minor offenders without Jury. The house passed it, but it died on .the senate calendar. ' . Still unconstdered stands the Wickersham' prohibition report, filled with suggestions for change ranging up , to revision of the eighteenth amendment. Leaders of the 'wet forces look j forward to the next congress witli expectations of .waging -harder battles upon proposed -^liquor law legislation. Their estimates of ' increases? in the anti-prohibition forces would bring- the established wet votes in the senate to 22 and tHose in the house to 160. ·;.' This strength might., t a thrown behind a resolution like 1 - the one introduced by Senator Elaine, republican, Wisconsin, soon . after the Wickersham report reached congress to put into effect its suggested revision of the eighteenth amendment. But many of the wet group may demand repeal or nothing.
