(YV Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 17.-The de-
partment of justice acted quickly
today to block the latest threat to
its prohibition machinery, announc-
ing an "immediate appeal" would
be taken directly to the Supreme
Court from the New Jersey deci-
sion which held the Eighteenth
Amendment invalid.
Simultaneously an aroused fed-!
eral prohibition director telegraph-
ed a command to his New Jersey
forces to "carry on," while two
brother jurists there of Federal
Judge Clark, author of yesterday's
decision, were refusing to followj
the striking precedent set by him.

Loyal Spanish troops are closely guarding the royal palace in Madrid. Following the declaration of mar-
tial law the soldiers have been compelled to quell almost continual rioting. King Alfonso has stationed men
at all important points to enforce his rulings. Although the majority of the people seem to be tired of the
frequent disorders of the past few weeks there are many who will not be content until they see the over-
throw of the monarchy. Some of these engaged in a street fight with the artillery yesterday in which four
men were killed. There were also mobs at Santander, Alicante, Isla Christina, Huelva, and Valencia who
fought with soldiers.

Reeves, Bromage, and Steiner I
Give Views on Decision
by Judge Clark.

By Beach Conger, Jr.
Several members of the political
science department yesterday ex-
pressed their opinions in regard to
the decision of Judge William Clark,
of New Jersey federal district court,
on the constitutionality of the Vol-
stead act. Those interviewed were
of the opinion that the decision
could not be upheld.
"The reasoning of Judge Clark is
fallacious," stated Dr. H. Arthur
Steiner. "There is very little ques-
tion but what the Appelate Court
or the Supreme Court will reverse
his decision if the case is appealed.
There is no basis for the reasoning
he has used.
"The constitution of the United
States has provided for the amend-I
ment of the document by either


whether by conventions or legisla-I
Prof. Jesse Reeves, head of the
department, stated that he did not
wish to be quoted on the case until
he had read the full decision of
Judge Clark. He did say, however,
that "it is within the powers of
Congress to decide whether ratifi-
cation of an amendment shall be
by conventions or legislatures. It'
has been claimed that the powers
of the states have been reduced by
the 18th amendment. But who
should represent the people of the
states better than the state legis-
Prof. Brommage stated that "the
decision will never stand in the Su-,
preme Court of the United States.
The decision is a very far-fetched
interpretation of the Constitution.
One cannot distinguish between
amendments to be ratified by state
conventions on one hand, or legis-
latures on the other hand. The will1
