WAS'HINGTOiN, Jan. 10.--The 10th anniversary of .prohibition was celebrated by both wets and 'tlrys In Congress today with oratory and legislative proposals, Tho Ilou-se set off the fireworks ly cheering Speaker of the Houise Long- wonth loudlv -for his S'licce.ssful .stand aguirist President Hoover's .proposal for a joint -congressional conrnijttee to consider Joint proposals. While di-ys lauded prohibition In speeches, wete presented legislative ·proposals, Representative I/aGuardla, RepU'lJHcan, New York luirodiuced a resolution flmllengtn-K the legality oC the IS'lh Ani-tndin-ent on technical growuds, whll-o Senator Blaino, Republican, Wisconsin, proposed repeal of the 18th Amendmiertt In a Senate resolution. Blalne said tho 18th Amendment never had leen and never could be enforced. 1/lberalixa.tion of the ; VoIl«ad Act would ftelp re-establish moderation and temperance, he said!, but declared "the ultimate solution ol "tho ovil» of prohibition" is re- pen! of the a'meiidm-ent, Soon after B'lalne Introduced Ms a].iendmerit the House listonotl to a de- feose of prohibition by a dry--.Representative Coo per. Republican^ Ohio-who rose to answer a recent speech by Representative Schafer, Republican, Wisconsin, a wet, tha-t prohlblUou. is inconsistent with Christianity. This leg"al challenge received sparse attention from the Constitutional drys who were more interested In a hidden provision they have discovered in the Williamson bill which may deprive Secretary of Treasury Mellon of most of his power over alcohol permit releases. Many _of the drys havo been after Mellon and they have withheld approval of the measure to leave the alcohol permit fiivision in the Treasury while t r a n s f e r r i n g all the rest of the prohibition u n i t to the Justica Department, A provision has beeu written, into .he hill, however, designed to encourage their support of the measure.'' It states that the Treasury can approve approve permits .only after 10 days have elapsed, d u r i n g which time copies of the application must be submitted to the Attorney General. It tho Attorney General objects to any permit, the Treasury may not grant it In short, the Ijrorisiou. gives the Attorney General a veto power over the Secretary of Treasury in the mat ter of issuing permits. Senator Borah of Idaho has charged diversion of industrial alcohol "is a national scandal," and Mrs. Mabol Walker Wille- brandt has asserted it is the biggest hols In tho enforcement wall. Chief Congressional interest today was centered upon the Senate voto on tho sugar tariff, scheduled for noon. The! vote will come on tho Harrison amendment proposing to eliminate tho 2E per cent increase provided in tho pending tariff bill and to retain the 1.7G cents a pound duty In tho present law. The outcome la so much in doubt that Republican leaders themselves do not agree. Both sides claim a victory. Tho issue rests with eastern Republicans who long havo voted against high sugar duties but who aro now reported to be privately split ou the question. Discharged From Hospital. John Collins of Markleysburg has been, discharged from tho Unlontown Hospital and will spend several days with Ills brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. Darvell Cunningham cf Unlontown.
