Xew York, Nov. 30. "Milllcent,
Queen of tho Koutleggers!" Sound
like a ilirow bai k to tha days when
the Bowery theaters rang with cat
calls and chcera for the vlllaliib and
heroines. When littlo lletli with her
soiled soul crept back to the old homo
stead through the storm to die.
Milllcent is ono of the best dreced
women in New York. She rides In a
hoavy limousine, manned by two
flashy flunkies who sit out in the
front seat in the rain. I saw her with
my own eye. Jt was In the offico
of a man of many affairs.
She was just leaving as I entered.
The outside office stopped work to
gape as she swept down tho aisle to
the elevator. She wore a dark brown
velvet dresa with folds of expensive
fur at the sides of the skirt and
around her neck. And a tricorn hat
with a militant air that was covered
with silver and Jet.
The read-headed, freckled pea
shooter at tha outer gute -described
her perfectly aa "Some ba bee!" The
man ot affairs told me that she had
coma into the possession ot th finest
stock of liquor In Manhattan before
prohibition. She moved in certain
circles on the fringe of society.
Tho stock market went bad and she
went In for bootlegging, catering only
to those she knew and who were will
ing to pay top prices. She haa mora
than trebled the amount that was
left to her by her husband and evi
dently has become quite shameless
about her activities.
However, there are very few women
bootlegger in New York, and most
of tham are creature of th under
world who are working for men. It
almost seem to me that there ia less
surreptitious drinking In the cafea.
What drinking there Is ia confined to
the home. And New York heara lesa
and kwa alout those wild all night
drinking festival. Indeed, It ia be
ginning to look a if w wer really
going to have prohibition.

One of Greatest U. S. In
dustrie, Say Wayne
Washington, lec ?. The Indus
trial alcohol trade, with Its opportu
nities multiplying through new chem
ical and scientific discoveries, Is des
tined to become one of th greatest of
American Industries, according to
Wayne H. Wheeler, general counsel
of the Antl Saloon league.
"Mora ulcohol for Industry and lesa
In the Individual p"ll safety, pros
perity and law enforcement" that'
the wuy Mr. Wheeler look at It.
"The altitude of the friends of the
INth amendment la not antagonistic
lot friendly to tho largest develop
ment of this great Industry," he de
clared. "The national prohibition act
specifically recognise and encourage
th Industrial alcohol trade. National
prohibition I alined at tho leverage
traffic. legitimate Industrial alcohol
trade does not cater to tha beverage
trulllc, Tho auccesa of thl Industry
depends upon II being confined to tho
scope of Its legitimate purpose."
Sum prohibitionist, according to
Wheeler, need to know more about the
valu of the Industry, while "repre
sentative of th trad need to con
alder mor carefully tho condition
which are essential to an honest en
forcement of the Volstead act."
A f feels Three Classes,
"Prohibition affecta three classes of
Industrial alcohol dealers," ho said.
"The first class handles denatured al
cohol and should have tha largest free
dom possible in the maufacture and
aula of their product. The second
class hnndles specially denatured alco
hols. None of these aro Intended for
beverage use, but some aro capable of
beverage use, and strong regulation
are necessary to prevent Illegal diver
sion. The third clasa represent those
who are willing to violate the law, use
fake permits, produce fake medicine
and divert tho liquor from It legiti
mate course. Agnlnsl such there must
be an uiicesBiiig warfare both by the
trade and by publli-, officials.
"The future of the Industry lie In
(ho hands of the men who are Invest
ing their money and brain power in
It. If they will co-operate In keeping
their products wllhln th law there la
no industry that has a brighter fu
ture. "Tlie Industry came to the nation's
defense In the last war by converting
Industrial alcohol plants and chemical
Industrial factnrlf Into agencies for
the supply of polaon gas, power, high
explosives and other product essen
don to the successful prosecution of
"With reasonable encouragement
this industry can be the greatest of
Its kind In the world. Industrial al
cohol will be an Increasing aource of
fuel supply. Alcohol for motor fuel
is a possibility. The products manu
factured from it, such a ethyl alco
hol, are making manufactured Bilk
and leather a success."
