First Returns of Prohibition Poll
Show Widespread Wet Sentiment

HEADS METING Iowa Falls Before Wolverine

A crushing b 1o w culminating
more than a year of telling attacks
was administered the prohibition
element yesterday when the first
returns of the Literary Digest's na-
tion-wide poll revealed a ringing
wet 500 per cent majority for the
repeal element with ten states
heard from.
Out of 323,000 votes counted, on-
ly 51,000 were in the column head-
ed "continuance of the eighteenth
amendment" while a phenomenal
273,000 were totaled up in favor of
All ten of the states reporting
showed predominant wet majori-
ties. They included Georgia, Illi-
nois, Indiana, Maryland, New York,
North Carolina, Ohio, and Virginia.
The state which most closely ap-
proached a dry advantage w a s
North Carolina with 5,000 for con-
tinuance and 7,000 for r e p e a 1.
Maryland was 2,000 dry and 11,000
wet. New York was 32,000 dry and
224,000 wet.
This c u r r e n t prohibition poll
which was announced only a month
ago and is being carried out with
the purpose of indicating what
change has taken place in prohibi-
tion sentiment since the last simi-
lar poll two years ago. Also it is
being conducted with the view to
overcoming one of the admitted
weaknessess of the last poll, which
was that a third modification col-
umn confused the issue and lined
up a large block of votes which
both the wet and the dry factions
claimed. This year the issue is a
clear cut one; the ballot gives the
voter only one choice either repeal
or continuance of the eighteenth

Practically unanimous repudiation
of the prohibition of intoxicants by
the government has been voiced by
college daily newspaper editors, re-
sults of the poll conducted recently
by the University of North Carol-'
ina indicate. 30 of the 34 editors
questioned favored repeal of the
Eighteenth Amendment and the
Volstead act.
Three were in favor of retaining
these acts while the editor of the
Daily Nebraskan replied that he
favored neither repeal nor reten-
tion. ,
A. C. Aslakson, editor of the.
Minnesota Daily and the most out-
spoken of the voters in the poll, of-
fered this comment: "I am defin-
itely opposed to prohibition. I be-I

of alcohol by our American youth
... What's the use of asking if pro-
hibition has been enforced? Nei-

the results of the poll as an indica-
tion that the youth of today is
prepared "to undertake the future
task of protecting the integrity and*
consistency of the Constitution in-
stead of misusing it for irrational

The government,' however, has

The military party )n Japan is
responsible for the aggression in
Manchuria, in the opinion of Suez.
This is due to the 'fact that the
army and navy can act without the
consent of the government. The
other Japanese are friendly to-
wards the Chinese, he asserted.
"Japan must have raw materials
to fight any great war," continuedE
Suez.' "She is therefore trying to
get control of Manchuria because
that territory is rich in iron, coal,
alumin3um,rmagnesiumi, and other
war materials.
"Japan does not need Manchuria
as much as China does to take care'
of over-population. In the last 10
