FREE BAND CONCERT AND FESTIVAL, FAIRMOUNT ORANGE HALL. FRIDAY EVENING, JULY 1*. By Associated Press to The Review Washington, D. C, July 16.—Authority of congress to fix one-half of one percent aa the maximum alcoholic content of beverages in prohibition enforcement legislation, Is clear, Wayne B. Wheeler, general counsel of the Anti-Saloon League declared today before the Senate Judiciary sub-committee ta answering recent statements of Samuel Untermyer, counsel for brewers. "To allow the sale of 2 8-4 percent beer," said Mr. Wheeler, "would keep alive the liquor trade and defeat the purpose of national prohibition. Friends of prohibition do not want a code unless It defines Intoxicating liquors.' Thirty-three prohibition states, and thirteen local option states, Mr. Wheeler said, have laws limiting alcohol ta beverages. He challenged Mr. Untermyer to produce any court decisions denying congress or state legislatures the right to make definitions. "Congress cannot consistently adopt a weaker standard ta defining the term than that already enacted in the states" said Mr. Wheeler. "This means nothing can bs sold for beverage purposes that contains more tnan one-half of one percent alcohol." Mr. Wheeler told the committee prohibition avocates were not asking that possession of liquors, bought before Jttly 1 of personal use be prohibited. He added, however, that they were suggesting amendments to the pending legislation to limit the amount of liquors which may be stored in private residences, so as to "prevent homes from becoming speakeasies". Another amendment advocated by prohibition leaders, htr. Wheeler said Is a provision for seizure of Uquors in homes where it is sdd lllidtly. "Bootleggers will maintain thdr homes aa headquarters without Such legislation?said ha. ._.'■ Two other amendments were urged by the witness To prevent bootlegging he asked that the committee add a clause •nr'T'-g mere personal and physical possession of Intoxicants—such as the presence of a bottle ta an individual's pocket—unlawful. This is the most effective weapon of prohibition enforcement", said Mr. Wheeler, and Senator Sterling suggested tbat bill be extended so as to penalise purchase aa well as sale of Intoxicating beverages. Mr. Wheeler also asked for sweeping sec inn warrant powers, sugestlng that seizures be authorised without a warrant, or at least that warrants be la- sued without requiring testimony in support of requests. Otherwise, he said, liquor might be removed before of fleers oould aet. Senator Walsh, Montana, and other committee members opposed extension of the bill's search warrant provisions and alao insisted that the provisions penalizing searches with malice and without probable cause ahould remain.

This was one of the alleged libelous charges made against him in the Tribune editorial. Attorney Elliott O.

The witness said that he made the admission merely to stop the examination. Later when formally asked to admit that he was an "Ignorant Idealist," he declined to do so. In the course of the examination, Mr. Ford defined a traitor as "one who works against the government," an Idealist as one "who helps others to make a profit" and evidently with Arnold Bennett vaguely In mind, described Benedict Arnold as a writer/ Much time was consumed in reading President Wilson's preparedness speeches of 1916. Mr. Stevenson repeated the story of Benedict Arnold and his attempt to betray his country, and of the British spy, Major Andre, through whose capture the Arnold plot was disclosed, but Mr. Ford said he had never heard or read of it "Do you understand, that it is the duty of a man who undertakes to educate the people aa you did, to pacifism, to be educated themselves?" asked tbe lawyer. . "Yes, to an extent," answered Mr. Ford. The witness said he knew what the Declaration of Independence was, but did not recall details. "I could read It, if I wanted to know," he said.

Senate Committee Asks Copies of the dtp-German Treaties By Assoelated Preaa to Tha Review Washington, D. C, July 16.—A request for copies of any treaties affecting Japan or Oerman lights in China was sent to the Stato Department today by the Senate Foreign Relations committee. The motion to ask for this information was adopted by unanimous vote, members agreeing that the committee could better consider the Shantung aet- tlemen ta the treaty of Versailles if It had the text of the Chinese German convention of 1898, the Japan) se pact of 1616, and any other international engagements bearing on the subject. No other formal action affecting the treaty with Oermany was taken by the committee during its two-hour session today nearly all of the time being devoted to a continuation of the reading of tbe text.
