The reception was not formal, as

"Health education is a solving of

"The child must be persuaded to I

"Who does not talk of prohibi-
tion today? Why should you pick
on me?" said Mr. Chas. W. Melick,
1333 Washtenaw Ave., in an inter-
view yesterday. Mr. Melick is a re-
tired Prohibition agent and, like
the retired minister or business-
man, knows the inside story and
is willing to talk.
"Prohibition enforcement costs
the Federal Government a great
deal ,of money, does it not?" was
the first question asked. "No," Me-
lick replied, "it has netted the gov-
ernment 200 million dollars in the
last ten years to enforce this law.
The fines imposed and the sale of
the property confiscated more than
pays for the salaries and other
costs of enforcement."
"What is the present state of
liquor traffic on Rum Row and
smuggling from Canada?" Melick;

was asked. "The bootleggers para-
dise," said Melick, "consisting of
nearly a mile of one and two story
houses on the water-front of Ecorse
and Wyandotte used for blind pigs
and storage of liquor, with loading
platforms extending into the river,
thrived before the Canadian export
liquor law went into effect last May.
Since then rum running has prac-
tically ceased on the Detroit river."
"Has Federal enforcement in-
creased in efficiency during the
present administration?" he was
asked. "Positively," declared Melick,
somewhat vehemently and feeling-
ly, "law enforcement has been
greatly aided by the Unified Border
Patrol Bill. Experience of Federal
agents has helped by bringing into
the court 'iron clad' cases, with
date, hour, circumstances and with
labels on' every bottle of evidence,
and also by avoiding the loop-hole
of the objection of 'illegal search .
"Do you favor, repeal, modifica-
tion or strict enforcement of the
prohibition laws?" Melick was ask-
ed. "In the fact of fact there can
be little argument in favor of any
change in the prohibition laws,"
Melick said. "If people want hard
drinks for home consumption they

parations were rushed to defend
the city against an expected attack
of converging Communist bands.
The mutineers, who included the
Commander's bodyguards, were
promptly disarmed, but the defend-
ing force was weakened and the
situation was considered critical.
Strict military discipline prevailed
as guards patrolled streets and

Mike Fingerle, manager of the
Fingerle restaurants, yesterday
stated that damage caused to
plumbing fixtures in his three es-
tablishments in which city water
is used, amounts to between $350
and $400 yearly in replacement
Copper coils used in the four
water heaters owned by the Fin-
gerle restaurants rapidly become
corroded wit hlime deposits from
the exceptionally hard water and
must be completely cleaned out
every two weeks, he said. After on-
ly a few cleanings, the coils become
too thin for further use, necessi-
tating replacement, which in the
course of a year, Fingerle explained,#
becomes a costly process.
"River water, when properly fil-
tered, would not have the same
damaging effects," he said, "but
