IS.-- Senate wel.s and d"ya arc ready to go on record on repeal of Uio IStli Amend- tncni. which is before them in the Blaino vaaolution. It will bo the drat test vote on t h e prohibition amendment since it was ratified 11. years ago. I n v i t a t i o n s for tho lesl o-f strensth were isaui/d today by representatives of tho opposing factions. Senator Borah, Hp-publiruii, Maho, outspoken dry leader, announced his willingness for n vote a: any time, w h i l e Senator Blaine, R e p u b l i c a n , Wisconsin, a u t h o r ot the resolution, said ho woul.l expect a vato as soon as the turltt bill ia out of tho way. Chairman N'orrls of the Judiciary Committee w o u l d report out the roHolutlon -- adversely-- and let the Senate decide. A check by tho U n i t e d Press showed that Blaine can hope for no more than 20 of this 9f senatorial votes*. Borah predicted no more, ( b a n eight would go on record Cor repeal. We-ls admit they h a v e no rhance- tfc win but declare tliey w a n t to place every s e n a t o r and House m e m b e r on record so his vote would be an issue when he comes up tor reelection in November, frys, slrongor n u m e r i c a l l y t h a n ever (hey have been, have no w o r r y about. Hie result ot a test. While tho Senate in ready for a \oti\ i ( is by no meant) certain the House w i l l follow suit. However, R e p u b l i c a n Floor Leader TllHon said today hi w i l l not s t a n d in the way oC a test voto on prohibition there "if our members desire lo follow tho !-arl ot tho Senate." He said the. j . J u d i c i a r y Committee m u s t report ' t h e r e s o l u t i o n . This c o m m i t t e e ron- ' t a i n s sovernl p r o m i n e n t wet.s, but has 'a d r y m a j o r i t y . ] D u r i n g the hist^few years it has pocketed all wet and dry proposals w i t h the i m p o r t a n t exception of the Jones "tlve-and-ten" bill, so that holds no sure promise of action on tho present p r o p o s a l . Many House members, it is k n o w n , do not care to go on record. Blaine said today he did not oxpe-ct the S e n a t e to pass tho resolution. "Tho present tcmporature of the Senate ia strong again,m it," ho said but it is well to keep the- IKSUO before the people and let them know how their representatives in CongrcKB stand on the issue. "The voto w i l l be preceded by m u c h i l l u m i n a t i n g debate. "Sometime wo must coruo to the realization that tho 18th A m e n d m e n t c a n n o t ' b e enforced. I believe t h a t the lime will come- soon. Tho tlrys surely have conlklcMice in the efforts ot Mr. Hoover to enforce it. I do not say I have, hut they have. Well, If ftfr, Hoover Is unable to enforce it, tho drys must reach (he conclusion that it should bo amended. That is the hope T have." Borah scoffed at, the idea of repeal. His statement and that of Blaine'a were backed by t h e i r respective associated, showing clearly that tho issue was jio personal feud between them. { A flurry on t h prohibition a m e n d - ment was scheduled in the House today when RepvHenlaUvo La, Ouardia, Republican, New York, planned to make a point of order against the $34,000,000 a p p r o p r i a t i o n s In th-e pending TrwiHnvy appropriation, bill, the amount designated by the budget for enforcement activities next year.
