Taft, R., Ohio, called today for development of a *codc of international law looking toward eventual elimination of the United Nations veto. He made the proiwsal at a news conference licie shortly after, his arrival from Santa Cruz where he began p. six-state lour to test his chances lor the Republican presidential nomination. Taft was asked whether he agreed .with Secretary of State George C. Marshall's appeal at New York Sim- day for the UN General Assembly to do something about aggression against Greece. • The senator replied that he ngrccd with the "general principle" bu 1 , that he did not know the facts. ••Whether the United Nations can do anything is another question," lie added. . TaTt said he had consistently criticized the UN charier because it gave the Security Council power to preserve "peace and security" but did nothing about enforcing "justice." Up said he believed tluit limitations could be ylaceo. upon the big power veto but thht innny charter revisions would b_- needed before the .veto could be abolished. The UN cuuncll is not a judicial body, he said, and lias "no relation to justice." "International ponce has to be based on justice and law." Taft said, "and we must let si»nc agency Uc- cidc whether there is a violation of the law. it's a judicial procedure." rilKSDAY, SKl'TICMHKU 10, 1917 INDONESIAN REPUBLIC TRIES POWER GRAB fast Indonesia, Borneo Charge It Tries to Boss Other States In U.

In counties where beer is sold legally, part of tho taxes go to the state's crippled children, the indigent sick, the old age pensioners, the tuberculosis patients, the public school fund.' the University, the teachers' salary fund. In "dry" counties, on'ly the bootlegger benefits, for he doesn't pay taxes. Nor does he bother to observe any of the restrictions placed on licensed dealers, such as not selling to minors nor on Sundays. The bootlegger wilt sell to anybody, any time.
