McNab Believes Abuses Have
Brought National Prohibition
Laws into 'Disrepute'
(By Assoeiatd Press)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 2.-As a
patriotic duty of a private citizen,
John L. McNab, Sari Francisco
lawyer, has undertaken, at the re-
quest of President Hoover, the dif-
ficult task of formulating legisla-
tion to bring about better prohibi-
tion enforcement and relief of
court congestion.
Mr. McNab has no official con-
nection with the government, but
was urged by Secretary Mellon, At-
torney General Mitchell and Chair- I
man Wickersham of the law en-
forcement commission, as well as
the president, to draft legislation
for submission to congress in De-
cember that would centralize pro-
hibition enforcement under the
justice department.
Although describing it as a "bur-
den," he said he felt it was his
patriotic duty because no one "who
has caught the spirit of the presi-
dent on his ardent desile to make
this country a law-abiding nation
could, for a moment, hesitate to
take up this task.",
Abuses Bring Dsrepute
The abuses which have ac-
companied enforcement of the dry
law have brought the act into "un-
merited disrepute," he believes,
and have broken down the legal
machinery through the clogging of
the courts.
Long a friend of the chief ex-
ecutive, and a guest since Monday
at the White House, he regards
the reforms suggested by the presi-
dent as badly needed and has un-
dertaken his task with the reserva-
tion that he will receive no com-
pensation or reward. He will have
at his disposal the findings of the
enforcement commission.
"It must be understood," he said,
"that these reforms do not concern
alone the enforcement of the laws
in support of the eighteenth
amendment. The proposal looks1
to the relief of the courts from
their present congestion.
Legal Machinery Broken
"The abuses which have undeni-
ably accompanied the enforcement
of the dry law have brought that
act into unmerited disrepute.
"The legal machinery of the
country has broken under the
strain. Courts have been clogged,
abuses have arisen and practices
have developed which call for
definite reform.
"That reform, the president pro-
poses, shall be prompt and effec-
tive.
"Congress will convene Decem-
ber tenth. By that time it is hoped
that a definite plan with drafts of
necessary laws will be ready for
submission.
"Such is the wish of the presi-
dent, and to the fulfillment of that
wish I shall devote my fullest en-
ergy."
Fifteen sororities at Northwest-
ern are competing for a silver cup
in a drive to secure subscriptions
for the university's new literary
magazine. The teams of sales-
women have taken the names of
popular authors, ranging from
James Joyce to S. S. Van Dine.
