Its Constitutionality and Interpretation
to Be Considered by Supreme Court
After Easter Recess
By Associated Press.
Washington, March 19. —Prepara-
tions have been mail* for consideration
by the Supreme Court shortly after the
Easter recess of litigation involving
the constitutionality and interpretation
of the Webb-Kenyon liquor law, enact
ed by Congress in 1913.
The "drvs" contend that the Webb-
Kenyon law nas withdrawn from in
terstate shipments of liquor consigned
to local option territory the protection
previously olfcred such shipments by
the commerce clause of the federal con
stitution. The "wets" declare that the
law was merely aimed at "bootleg
ging" and does not withdraw the com
merce clause protection from interstate
shipments designed l lor personal use.
Express companies and railroads are
as much concerned over the proper
construction of the law as over the
question of validity. Liquor dealers
throughout the country have gone into
the courts to compel carriers to accept
shipments for "personal use" into
"dry" territory.
In Kentucky, the courts adopted the
"wet" construction and an express
company, foreseeing an alleged neces
sity for employing a big force of in
spectors and detectives to ferret out
the purpose of each shipment, appealed
to the Supreme Court. It is this case
which will be argued after Easter.
Somewhat similar cases involving West
Virginia and North Carolina liquor
laws are also before the court.

California's Best Fruit at Low Prices
—Orrnjes Among the Most Health
ful of Natural Foods According to
Physicians and Diet Specialists—
"One Bis, Juicy California Orange
Should Be Purchased To-day for
Every Member of the Family," Says
Official of Big Distributing Organ
Oranges will be featured to-morrow in
markets and stores, 011 hotel, restaurant
and dining car menus, at the soda foun
tains and 011 the tables of American
homes. California's big, brilliant coat
ed, juicy fruit will have its innings to
morrow, for growers, merchants, news
papers and other agencies are co-operat
ing in a big effort to get people better
acquainted with oranges —to make
"Orange Day" a big success education
ally. "Orange Day" is not designed to
be a day of big profits iu the orange
business. Its purpose is to attract in
terest to the subject of oranges as a
health food —to reach the ears of the
people with the truth about orange
juice as a nutritious and blood-purifying
food, as well as a delightful anil refresh
ing one. Special low prices will be in
effect at all fruit stands and stores.
The orange is a l'ruit that should plav
a most important role in the daily af
fairs of everyone, because it carries
tucked away inside its golden coat a
most desirable treasure—health. The
great food and diet specialists have con
sistently emphasized the benefits of
fruits and nuts, and special value has
always been given to oranges. Orange
juice, for instance, because of its mild
ness and nutritive value, is universally
prescribed for breaking lasts, in cases
v\ here fasts have been necessitated for
curative purposes.
There use 1 to be a saying, "An applo j
a day keeps the away." Tnis
helps to emphasize the value of the j
natural foods; but apoles have no cor
ner 011 healthfulness. 111 fact, it is very
robablc that the orange offers, of all
fruits, the most certain health insur- j
nice. Doctors found out years ago that !
irange juice should form a part of the !
liet of every baby to prevent any pos !
iibility of scurvy. And where scurvy !
las already ret in, orange juice is one '
>f the most important elements in its j
'lire. Citric acid and fruit sugar are j
found in their most delightful combina- 1
tion in the orange, and the blood-puri
fving properties, as well as its digesti
bility, have made it a common prescrip
tion for sick people and invalids. Or
ange juice has been found of special
calue, also, as a cooling drink for fever
Of the healthfulness of orange juice ;
the Encyclopedia Britanniea says: "Be- j
sides the widespread use of the fruit as |
tin agreeable and wholesome article of j
diet, that of the sweet orange, abound
ing in citric acid, possesses in a high |
degree the anti-scorbutic properties that i
render the lemon and lime so valuable j
in medicine, and the free conpuinption j
of this fruit in the large towns of Eng-J
land during the winter months has had
a very beneficial effect on the health of
the people."
Growth of the Industry
Nn industry can really prosper until
the marketing end has been systema
tized. Six years ago in California,
which was coming to be the most im
portant orange-producing territory in
the world, competition, high shipping
rates and other factors were beginning
to take the profit out of orange grow
ing. This fact fostered the advertising
idea among orange growers. Co-opera
tive societies that existed had been con
solidated into one big Exchange, and
advertising was begun. The result was
an increased demand, protection of the
growers and the opening up of oppor
tunity. During its brief life the Cali
fornia Fruit Growers Exchange has
marketed over $1 15,000,000 worth of
citrus fruits, mainly oranges, and its
present annual sales of oranges approx
imate more than $15,000,000.
The advertising campaign has dwelt
on the healthfulness of oranges, and the
wonderful growth of the business
amounts to a tribute of the American
people to this delicious California fruit,
which to-day has become a household
necessity. Only a few years ago or
anges were a Sunday fruit. To-dav they
are a daily food, and the modern house
wife knows many ways of preparing
them for the table. Orange salad, or
ange cake, orange punch, are 110 longer
unknown to us. '
The campaign also has decreased the
cost of oranges, size and quality con
sidered, by decreasing the cost of mar
keting. This has put the orange in the
reach of the rich and poor alike.
And, best of all, it has guaranteed
the quality and healthfulness of the
orange. - In the old days transportation
was so slow and there was so little sys
tem in the business that oranges had
to be picked green in order to be salable
when they reached the retail dealer.
The result was oranges that were too
sour, sometimes even bitter. On the
other hand, when an orange can be al
lowed to ripen 011 the tree it attains its
miximum possibilities as regards fruit
sugar, jticiness and flavor.
The superb selling system which mar
kets the great majority of California
oranges to-day makes it possible to pick
the oranges from the trees after liuen
ing and have them in the fruit markets
of the eastern cities within a few days,
after a rapid transcontinental trip in
specially designed refrigerator cars.
When yon buy 0 Kunkist Orange in your
city now it is just as if you had picked
it yourself from its cradle of dark green
foliage in a sunny orange grove of Cali
fornia and had sped by fast train across
the continent with it in your pocket.

culcatod among men is this —the ncces
