Back to Prohibition . 4 ' v -
Most people may laugh at the pre
dictions' of dry leaders that ' this
country Is headed back toward pro
hibition but not the distillers. Be-,
hind' this attitude of fear is a -very
curious situation," very -obvious to
anyone inquiring into it but -not
generally realized.- It Involves the
possibility that la the 1 next fight
to get prohibition, for the fight Is
inot only coming bat has begun, the
effort win be to prohibit not any
beverage In excess of one-half of 1
per cent as the Volstead law read,
nor even of ."Intoxicating beverages"
as the Eighteenth amendment read
v-but distilled liquor. ; . ;
. Distillers are . keenly aware - of
that . This explains their caption,
as contrasted with the attitude of
the brewers and wine makers. There
was a. great deal of. talk. Just be
fore prohibition; about "light wines
and beer." . n'-t :c-
All of which Is curious, In view
of the tremendous prejudice which
tsrls 5 In that lo!- perloj 1 -j
np -to prohibition against the word
"beer. It was eenerally. coaplea
wtttr av even- more- objectionable
word "saloon." In fact. one fre-
knentlj' ttetttf trie- worts' Jbtatly-r
"beer saloon."-"' r ' 1 "
That nreludlce seems" .to have
faded until little Is left of It When
wartime prohibition was being dis
cussed In the senate, Wadsworth of
New York, painted a delightful pic
ture of the Joys and temnenteness
of wine drinking.: Senator Norris,
one of the dryest of the drys, rose
and asked If' the senator from New
Tork .would be satisfied If the biu
exempted wine. Wadsworth said he
would like to save beer, too, Nor
ris and ether drys threw op their
hands. ' It was unthinkable.', It may
be that this original prejudice, so
much stronger against., beer ;;than
wine, though wine contained normally
a much larger percentage of alcohol,
grew out of the difficulty some
llgtous drys had In surmounting
the Feast of Cana, bat syhatever the
truth, the fact, will be recalled by
anyone in this country at the time
that beer was far more obnoxious
to the drys than wine.' :
HiU "Hard Uquox
Bbt now state :' after 'state, In
cluding Virginia,, home state - Of
Bishop Cannon,, makes, the sale .of
beer and wine simple, .put throws
many restrictions around the sale
of "bard liquor." In a way the plan
follows that practiced for a long
time In Canada. ; So-called "wine
cocktails" are offered In hotel din
ing rooms, but not martinis or man-
battans. Beer is 'sold' everywhere.
Beer, and wine -are sold in Vir
ginia, Washington, and many other
places In this country much more
freely than in the old pre-prohibi-
tion days. Before prohibition the
only places that would sell a cus
tomer a glass or bottle of beer were
licensed saloons,: which were strict
ly limited as to number. , Now there
are frequently five In one block. In
Washington these are sandwiched
between stores which are licensed
to sell only packaged goods not to
be consumed on the premises.
AW. of which change. In sentiment
lf . lt' really does 'represent
change Is very apparent to the dis
tillers, and- their fetfr of the next
fight ' grows, ' for their thought Is
that If the fight Is concentrated on
distilled liquor, or, 'any. beverage
exceeding 13 per cent or 20 per
cent alcoholic content, they will not
have the brewers, the wine makers
and the grape growers with them.
While there Is 00 Intention In the
administration of yielding to the
clamor , of privately owned banks
for the 'abolition or - sharp con
traction, of the postal savings sys
tem, there is Just, as .much opposi
tion In official quarters to the elabo
rate plans for' expanding that sys
tem, - Including checking accounts,
and; going, ibto a general banking

Officials, both of the .reserve
board and post office. Insist that
they do not want to change the
present system, at all They do not
want to push privately owned and
mutual savings banks out of busi
ness, and thev do not want the
eminent going7 Into the banking busi

the same time they are unwllllni
to aeprive ue public or what they
regard as a , "privilege." .
Actually It Is rather puzzling that

banking authorities -do not .permit
savings accounts to draw more than

With the government guarantee
