20 LEADERS ARRESTED
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, July 29. - De-
scending on huge narcotic rings in
three widely separated cities, agents
of the newly reorganized narcotic
division of the treasury made 20
arrests over the week-end and cap-
tured persons who were said to be
the leaders of five narcotic gangs.
At the same time, the raiders
seized large quantities of morphine
I and heroin and believed they had
broken up smuggling operations
that brought millions of dollars
worth of narcotics into this coun-
try each year from Turkey. The
leader of one gang, it was announc-1
ed, was arrested in his office in the
Woolworth building in New York as
he was preparing a quantity of
morphine for shipment to San

"The Englishmen have been able

the rise of the Labor party into

tions of 1929. The Labor party hold-

Liberals, has achieved nothing

Professor Pollock said.;

"Reduction of military and naval
budgets, increase in the income tax,I

of the Labour Government," said1
Professor Pollock, "besides the ne-

"In unemployment, the major

Party had the most constructive
program for the amelioration of the
unemployment problem the elec-

as many seats to the Liberal party
as their real strength over the
country would have entitled them."
Free Trade To Be Issue

next general election," Professor
Pollock predicted. "England has

The reservoir was drained, clean-
