For four years, the champion of the Prohibition Army has been a crusader Commissioner Roy Asa Haynes. But now an efficiency expert has arisen to fight with him for leadership. Lincoln C. Andrews, new Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in charge of Prohibition enforcement, looked upon the work of the crusader and found it ineffective. Mr. Andrews is a General (a title he acquired in military service) and promptly he set out to reorganize the Prohibition Army.
