WASHINGTON, Jan. 11. - (/P) -
Prohibition stalwarts, in militant
mood and with expressed confi-
dence that the "wet drive" will be
repulsed in congress and ,the na-
tional political conventions, meet
here Jan. 15 to 19, to draw battle
plans for the election year.
Assembling close to the capitol
and to the White House, the twenty-
fifth national convention of the
Anti-Saloon league of America will
give special consideration to" the
impending congressional vote on
liquor control legislation and to
presidential prospects forn1933.
A "call to arms' of supporters of
the eighteenth amendment and the
Volstead act will be sounded in
speeches by such veteran cham-
pions of prohibition as Senator
Morris Sheppard of Texas, "father
of the eighteenth amendment,"
Bishop Edwin Hughes of the Metho-
dist Episcopal church and Okla-
homa's picturesque governor, "Al-
falfa Bill" Murray.
League leaders contend that the]
sentiment of the country is over-
whelmingly in favor of keeping the
eighteenth amendment in the con-
stitutioi}.
