Morrow (R) Hopkinton. . ' Vote on final passage of the bill was 88 to 16 after the Morrow proposal went down in a 46-60 vote. The end of local option on beer for this session of the legislature came suddenly as the weary legislators decided to shut 6ff further debate after only two speakers had expressed themselves on the subject. Provisions Are Listed The beer bill, which now must go to the senate, provides: 1. Elimination of class C permits for "off the premises consumption." ' 2. An increase from S100 to S150 for class B or "by the stein" permits. Maximum remains at S300. 3. That employment of minors in places where beer is sold shall be illegal.

The "final draft of the declaration,' authoritative British sources said, also had been brought to the attention of Rumania, Turkey Greece, Yugoslavia and Bulgaria! Memel Not Included They stressed that it would not operate if Germany and Lithuania made a deal over Memel, which was German territory before the post-war settlement. It was designed to counter Germany action against non-Germanic territory, they said. The announcement of Britain's action came after the soviet government had disclosed at Moscow that London considered an immediate six-power conference as ' premature." This had led to a belief that soviet support for a strong "stop Hitler" move was highly uncertain. British sources emphasized that the declaration would be entirely compatible with a conference at a later stage. Russia, they, said was likely to accept such a procedure as a .satisfactory alternative to a conference-now. ' President LeBrun Arrives Meanwhile President Albert LeBrun of France arrived in London for a three-day state visit amid increasing French-British collaboration in the face of German expansion. Report that Germany might denounce the British-German naval treaty drew from an official spokesman the reply that the treaty was permanent and could not be terminated legally except with the consent of both parties. Kinf, Queen Present King George and Queen Eiiza- belh welcomed President and Mine. Lebrun at Victoria station and accompanied them in an open carriage through troop-lined, flag- decked slreets to Buckingham palace. Prime Minister Chamberlain, Foreign Secretary Viscount Halifax, most of the other cabinet ministers, and a crowd of notables were among those at the station. French Foreign Minister Georges Bonnet, who accompanied the president, was expected to have tsh officials during the visit.

CaT., (/P)_The second sharp earthquake of the day jarred portions of the Imperial Valley at 5:51 a. m. (PST) Tuesday, accompanied by a clearly audible roar. Police Sergt. George Buck-lin said the tremor lasted five seconds, rattled dishes but did no damage. A one-second "jarring" quake was felt at 12:35 a. m. 1,000: four between 1,000 and 1 500: five between 1,500 and 2,000-six between 2,000 and 2,500; seven between 2,500 and 3,000; eight between 3,000 and 3.500: nine between 3,500 and 4,000; ten between .4,000 and 4,500; 11 between 4,500 and 5,000; 13 over 5,000 and one for each additional 7»0 population. 7. No permits for filling stations or roadhouses. \ 8. Possession of a federal retail liquor dealer permit shall be grounds for mandatory revocation of a beer permit. The local option vole marked the end of the Rev. Sfr. Morrow's battle for local option on beer. His house file N'o. 1, filed Jan. 17. more than two months a^o, called for the right of counties to vole on whether they wanted to permit the sale (if nccr or the operation of state liquor stores within their boundaries. Tuesday's action prevents con- sideralion of the beer section of that bill should the measure ever reach the floor. In his vain battle for the option amendment, the Hopkinton representative hammered at the "relentless efforts" by local option foes to delay house consideration of the question. He declared that "alcoholic beverages are poisonous and that a community should have the right to protect itself against the stuff.'' 'No memoer of his body. I take it, would deprive a community of Maximum Monday Minimum Monday At 8 a. m.

Touching on arguments that the slate liquor system yields 52,000,000 a year profit for the state general fund, the Methodist minister said. j "Every time we talk and argue ! fov revenue from liquor, we are ! saying indirectly that we are willing to sell out some of .he youth of our state to a life of degradation, debauchery and crime." Local option would not solve the liquor problem, he admitted, but would merely give each community the right to say whether liquor should be sold within its borders Only other speaker to take the floor on the Morrow amendment was Representative A. H Avery (R), Spencer. Opposing the measure, Avery said local option would mean an increase in "drunken driving' as thirsty citizens in dry LOOK INSIDE FOR- JOHN NANCE GARNER Elliott R.

" Enclosed with the note was a copy of the statement Acting Secretary of State Welles made last triday containing this country's condemnation" of what were described as Germany's "acts of wanton lawlessness and of arbitrary force." Legal Basis Dented The United States note acknowledged the receipt of the German note of last Friday informing this government of the yl rms of the decree issued March 16 by the government of the reich announcing the assumption of a protectorate over the provinces of Bohemia and Moravia. "The government of the United Slates, 1 the American note said "has observed that the provinces' referred to now are under the de facto administration of the German authorities. The government of the .United.States does not recognize that any legal basis e.xisls ir. sti tus so indicated." The note then said that the views of this government were made known last Friday and for ine information of the German government a copy of. Welles' statement was enclosed.
