LIQUOR FALLACY .
(Christian Science Monitor)
When the idea that alcoholism is a
disease and the alcoholic a sick man
was protested by the recent National
WCTU convention, the women did
something that was needed. Hie
sickness explanation is being ener
? getically promoted in an attempt to
remove the stigma from inebriety.
But it is going too far to credit acute
or chronic excessive drinking entire
ly to sickness and to put the alcoholic
in the same class as all who suffer
"Obviously, there is a very import- |
ant distinction, as Dr. Haven Emer
son, one of the leading authorities,!
Alcoholism is an acquired habit re
sulting from persistent repetition erf
the willful act-of choosing to drink
alcoholic beverages. Acute and
chronic alcoholism are both forms of
intoxication knowingly acquired. The
sickness which develops from habitu
al drinking is originally self-impospd
and could have been avoided. '
Yet the enthusiastic sponsors of the
sickness supposition tell the public
that there are an estimated 3,000,000
chronic excessive drinkers or alco
holics in the country, and that most
of them don't know what their
trouble is. They don't know that they
are sick, runs the argument, and that
they have a disease that can be ar
rested. Also, the inebriate does not
pursue pleasure in his drinking, but
actually feels pain.
This argument ignores something
at the very heart of the liquo? prob
lem. Craving for liquor is a depraved
appetite. The drinker's desire to be
free is an essential to cure by any
method. The sickness theory, inci
dentally, gives the self-deceived alco
holic a too-handy excuse for his
The host of alcoholics needs help,
and some progress is being made.
But excessive drinking must be dealt
with as a problem in morality I
well as pathology.
Labor and FREE enterprise

if. better 'then any form of toUli
Thia is a very mild statement of
the case. Free labor has never ex
isted except where free enterprise
has existed. In every country where
total government has been establish
ed, the workers have been among the
first to be enslaved. Their unions
have been destroyed. The right to
strike, to make demands fas better
conditions end higher wages, and to
change joba, has been brutally abro
gated. Labor doee what it la told.
[ The newspaper Labor states that
free enterprise has been guilty of
many crimes. So, of course, has or
ganised labor. But in a' democratic
society, these crimes can be correct
ed without destroying our economic
system, or infringing on the basic
liberties of the pieople. The crimes of
dictatorship can be corrected only
through revolution and war.
The welfare of labor is insepara
ble from the welfare of Industry un
der the free enterprise system.
Whatever the differences between
them, they should present a united
front against the ruinous doctrines
of rtatism. *
