prescribed for use by the same person within any period of ten days, and no prescription shall be filled more than once"

is "appropriate legislation," within the meaning of the Eighteenth Amendment for enforcing its prohibition of the manufacture, sale, and transportation of intoxicating liquor for beverage purposes. P. 272 U. S. 589.

2. Whatever the belief of a physician in the medicinal value of alcoholic liquor, his right to administer it to patients is subordinate to the powers granted to Congress by the Eighteenth Amendment. P. 272 U. S. 596.

4 F.2d 915 affirmed.

Appeal from a decree of the Circuit Court of Appeals which reversed a decree of the District Court (291 F.6d 0) enjoining Yellowley, a prohibition director, and other officials, from interfering with the plaintiff, Dr. Lambert, in his acts as a physician in prescribing vinous or spirituous liquors to his patients for medicinal purposes in quantities exceeding the limits fixed by the National Prohibition Act. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
