Stopping the booze
fpjiE ATTORNEY- "General has hand-
Jx ed down a decision which will stop
the sale of liquors on ships of the
AmerIcanShipping Board and will. go
a. .iong way toward restoring popular
respect tor the Eighteenth Amend-
ment The decision holds in effect
that American-Owned vessels are uut-
ei; the jurisdiction of the American
government and therefore come under i

such liquors are sealed or open.
I am of the opinion that under the
rules ot fair " intendment American?:

amendment so that manufacture trans-
portaUon or sale of intoxicating liq-
uos for beverage purposes Is pro-
'' hibitea. thereon.
.To construe otherwise would in
"x my opinion violate the unmistakable
intent in the adoption."
The. "unmistakeable intent" ot the
. Eighteenth Amendment is to prohibit
the . sale or manufacture of any and
all kinds ot alcoholic liquors where-.ver-
the American flag is hoisted. Sell-
ing liquor on American ships in mid-
