Two editorials lie before us, re
printed and distributed by Licensed
Beverage Industries, Inc., the publi
city arm of,the liquor trade. Both of
ttiem are from reputable metropoli
tan newspapers, esteemed and promi
nent in their respective fields.
These editorials have accepted, al
moft without reservation, the LBI's
line of argument that big consump
tion of liquor helps education be
cause of the big taxes collected?
that when a man Luys a drink he is
purchasing part whisky for himself
and part education for American
We do not question the sincerity of
these editorials. These newspapers
may be honestly persuaded by the
liquor industry's reasoning as we are
honestly not That isn't the whole
Unless signs fail, curbs on (the
liquor industry, probably Bhort of
prohibition but more drastic than
anything before or since that era,
will become a national issue sooner
than the average American realizes.
The Capper bill, which would outlaw
interstate advertising of alcoholic
beverages, is but one straw in the
American newspapers, if they re
main true to their trust, will have to
discuss thiss issue. And the Capper
bill has already presented them with
a very large question, which will
grow more acute as time goes on:
How clean will their hands be? How
many of them will be able to stand
up before their readers as impartial,
independent advocates of the public
good? The integrity of their edito
rial policy actually may be above
reproach. Bin tremendous displays
of liquor advertising within .the
same pages day after day, month
after month, raise doubts in the pub
lic mind that will be hard to argue
