    Morals Squad
Finds Dry I ,aw
Is Unpopular
Frank \\ illiains, Quitting Ser
\ ice, Says Juries Often Ig
nore Straight Kvidenec of
Guilt Presented.
Prohibition can never be enforced i
in Omaha unit's a great change is 1
wrought in public sentiment. That
is the opinion of Flank Williams, who
resigned yesterday as head of the
polit e morals squad.
"With the exception of the times
Frank Pineen and Charles Foster
were on the bench,’ he said, "pro
hibition enforcement officers have
not had satisfactory support from
municipal court.
"In district court wo also were
severely handicapped, not by' the
judges but by the juries. i have
caught nu n in a tunnel actively m
gaged in nmonshining and have pre
sented convincing evidence to court,
only to have the jury vote to free
the defendants.
Many Homes Have Liquor.
"In at least 50 per cent of Omaha
homes there is liquor. More than 50
per cent of the people are opposed
to enforcement of the ’dry’ laws,
many of them to the extent of op
posing officers anti lipping off or
otherwise aiding offenders. If a
holdup were committed, pa per cent
of the people would favor t itching
and punishing the criminal, ami
would help, yet holdups continue to
take place. 1 see no way to over
come opinion so heavily prejudiced
in favor of the rum dealers."
The former sergeant has never
kept it secret that he did not de
stroy the w'ine supplies found by him
in foreign quarters if there was no
evidence of "liquor selling or dis
tilling.’ The coming of a new morals
squad head, he said, and a posible
change of attituile toward homo wine
supplies, "creates a situation filled
with dynamite."
Bloodshed Is Possibility ■
"Many of the foreigners have been
reared on wine.’ lie said, “and regard
its use os a God-given right above
the influence ef man to molest. T
:an confident bloodshed would follow
any attempt to deprive them of it.
Shot3 recently were fired at federal
officers, and the animus can lie traced
back to wine destruction. Two of
my men recently on a booze raid were
attacked by women in the belief they
were federal authorities. I/earning Of
their mistake, the women apologized
and saiil they liad believ'd raideis
to be ‘federal wine destroyers
