FDR Opens Way for
Lifting of Army Ban
On College Sports
WASHINGTON, July 28.-(A)-
President Roosevelt has opened the
way for possible reconsideration of
an army order preventing soldier-
trainees from participating in in-
tercollegiate athletics, aides of Rep.
Weiss (Dem.-Pa) said today.
The Chief Executive, in a letter to
Weiss, thanked him for a telegram
calling the ruling to his attention and
said he would take it up with Secre-
tary of War Stimson.
Weiss, chairman of an informal
House Committee which has been
urging that trainees be allowed to
play, recently said that only the
Army could save college football
next autumn.
Many major colleges have aban-
doned football for the duration be-
cause "all of the better players have
gone into the service," Weiss said,
adding that other schools are wait-
ing for the war department's de-
Weiss' committee has conferred
with high ranking Army officers, and
Under-Secretary of War Patterson,
with no definite action being taken
as yet. Weiss said he "felt their at-
titude was unfavorable because none
of them had been closely associated
with athletics, "but the President's
letter "revives hope," his aides said.

to take care of the time between dis-
charge and the finding of a new job.
2. Unemployment insurance in case
no job is found after diligent search.
3. An opportunity for further edu-
cation or trade training financed by
the government.
4. Credit allowance under employ-
mnent compensation and federal old
age insurance for the period of serv-
ice, just as if there had been continu-
ous employment in private industry.
5. Broader provisions for hospital-
ization, rehabilitation and medical
care of the disabled.
6. Sufficient pensions for disabled
members of the armed forces.
Disclosing that he planned a new
radio address to the nation within
a few weeks Mr. Roosevelt asserted:
Government Plans Serious Moves
"Your government is drawing up
other serious, constructive' plans for
ertain immediate forward moves.
They concern food, manpower, and
other domestic problems but they tie
in with our armed forces.
"Within a few weeks I shall speak
with you again in regard to definite
actions to be taken by the executive
branch of the government and spe-
cific recommendations for new legis-
lation by the Congress."
Of the war in Sicily and Italy, the
Chief Executive said it would go on
"until the Italian people realize the
futility of continuing to fight in a
lost cause-a cause to which the peo-
ple of, Italy never gave their whole-
hearted approval and support."
'Pirate Philosophy' Cannot Stand
Analyzing the crack-up in Italy,
Mr. Roosevelt remarked that the "pi-
rate philosophy" of the Fascists and
Nazis cannot stand adversity, and
said that military superiority of the
United Nations had been applied in
the right place and at the right time.

WASHINGTON, July 28.--/P)~
Bootlegging of liquor is on the up-
grade again.
As lean periods loom ahead for
American drinkers because of re-
stricted supplies, there is evidence
on the one hand of some attempts
to make the lean days fatter
through traffic in contraband li-
quor-and on the other hand, of
attempts to make them even leaner
through prohibition measures.
The Government's over-all view
of the bootlegging and moonshine
picture is that it's at its lowest ebb
since the days of national prohibi-
tion, due to wartime shortages of
materials, difficulties of transpor-
tation, and the march of many
moonshiners to the colors.
Moonshiners Try Comeback
A nationwide survey of the li-
quor situation made by the As-
associated Press shows that while
such lawbreaking is low for the
country as a whole, moonshiners
in a few states are attempting a
comeback, and other types of
bootlegging prevail in many sec-
tions of the land.
Reports from Virginia, West Vir-
ginia, South Carolina, Arkansas,
Texas, Oklahoma. Tennesee, Kan-
sas and Florida indicate that mak-
ers of white mule and other con-
coctions are making persistent,
though sometimes rather crude, at-
tempts to get going in the hills and
Furthermore, there are signs
that the present shortage of li-
quor, restrictions on hours of sale
in some communities, and varia-
tions in liquor supplies between
Three Former
At Ft. Bening
Three Army officers formerly sta-
tioned at the University with the
ROTC are now located at Ft. Ben-
ning, Ga.
Col. Walter B. Ferris, who left the
University in 1940, is now in charge
of all training at the Ft. Benning
Infantry School. He was stationed
here for seven years.
Recently made assistant Chief of
Staff Personnel for the War Depart-
ment, Lt.-Col. R. R. Courcey was
formerly in charge of the Officers
Candidate School at the Ft. Benning
Infantry School. Colonel Courcey,
who left here in 1936, spent seven
years at the University.
Col. R. H. Lord, now in charge of
the Officers Training Regiment at
Ft. Benning, was stationed at the
University for four years. He left
here in 1935.

bordering states has spurred ac-
tivity in many parts of the country
by non-manufacturing bootleg-
gers and black marketers.
They range from a few big op-
erators, who still manage to keep
trucks going over somewhat long
distances, to small operators like
taxicab drivers, bell-hops 'and
the suitcase bootlegger.'
In California, customs officials
report a ten-fold increase in at-
tempts to smuggle liquor across the
Rio Grande from Mexican border
War Production Suggested
On the prohibition front, a bill
proposing wartime prohibition has
been submitted to Congress by
Representative Bryson (Dem.-
S.C.) Also pending in Congress are
seven other bills proposing;restric-
tions of various kinds on alcoholic
Dry leaders persistently call
for restrictive measures on liquor
in the vicinity of military estab-
lishments and war plants-they
declare that "Monday morning
hangovers" are a factor in in-
dustrial absenteeism - and re-
cently, the Anti-Saloon League
of America appealed to President
Roosevelt to "prevent the sale of
intoxicating liquor, including
beer, on any property controlled
by the government. or to any
man or to any woman in United
States uniform."
Trend Toward Dry U. S.
While there has been no formal
action by the drys to seeking a
legislative return of unlimited na-
tional prohibition such as pre-

vailed in 1918, wet" forces claim
that dry adherents are using ap-
peals for wartime restrictions as
stepping stones toward a bone-
dry America.
Here is the picture on the moon-
shine situation:
While "many.nstates report that
illicit distilling, is cramped by
shortages, of copper, sugar and
other supplies, and by other war-
time factors, other reports show
In' the swamps of Florida, fa*
mers are using syrups' as substi-
tutes for sugar, and are making
liquor in little stills that revenue
agents refer to as "coffee.pot af-
fairs." About 50 stills are now
being confiscated . monthly-ah
increase of about, 50 per cent
over 18 months ago.'
In Arkansas,. moonshiners who
had 'uspended. operations because
of lack .of. sugar began pooling
their rationed sugar a few weeks
ago and now are in operation.
Terrific Stuff
There's not much moonshine
flowing in the mountains of T'en-
essee anymore, but a few old-
timers are trying to make rum
essee are trying to make rum
out of sorghum molasses which a
revenue agent in Washington de-
scribed as "pretty good rum-
but the only trouble is, a man's
apt to get sick long before he
gets a buzz on."
Operators in Oklahoma and
Kansas, two of the nation's three
prohibition states (with the ex-
ception of 3.2 beverages) are also
cooking up molasses rum, as are
others in South Carolina.
