POWELL APPOINTED BY ELY TO HELP DRAFT LIQUOR LAW

T. R. Powell, Langdell Professor of Law, has been appointed by Governor Ely to serve on a commission of seven which will recommend suitable legislation for Massachusetts in the event of repeal or modification of the Federal Prohibition laws. The group has been given carte blanche by Governor Ely to carry on its work as it sees fit.

It is hoped by Governor Ely that the commission's recommendations will serve not only as a model for Massachusetts liquor law but for such legislation throughout the country. G. R. Nutter '85, Boston attorney, is chairman of the group, of which R. M. Sedgwick '21, treasurer of the Democratic State Committee and an officer of the Crusaders, is also a member.
