TTTF The sale of beer has been legalized In only 14 states effective on April 7. The prohibition laws have been repealed Id five other states, but the re ieal in these states does not become effective until after April 7, and In one state not until July I.

"But filled with horrors and as it is I'm going to follow the President." Representative Hope (Rep., Kan.) said he could not support it. "You are putting Into the hands of one man control of the lives of 30,000,-00- 0 people who live on farms," he said. "If you vote for this bill, you're simply voting for a bigger and better farm board."

The law and the one passed by the last congress putting Into the hands of the President the reorganization of government departments and bureaus, give to the President dictatorial powers over government expenditures for salaries up to the point of a 15 per ' cent reduction, the number of departments and bureaus and the employees needed to operate them, and the amounts to be paid to veterans, and to what veterans. It Is exacted that such reductions as are made In the salaries of government departments will be effective April 1, but the savings made In the payment to veterans cannot, under the law, he effective until July I. For the next fiscal year, beginning July 1, It is predicted the economies effected by the President will amount to a total of $508,002,- 000, divided as follows: 1. by tatorship THE and to he paid a cash wage of not more than $1 per day. In the case of men with families a portion of the cash wage Is to be allotted for the support of the families.
