Raleigh.—Directors end mem-
bei-.s of the North Carolina Asso
ciation for AVine Control took di
rect action here AVednesday to put
the slate’s wine industry in order
and to insure full cooperation
with the state in enforcement of
new regulations regarding the
sale of wine, effective July 1.
Warned i-V Director John W.
Caffey that the wine industry is
on probation” and "must show
it is making an honest effort to
cooperate,” the association acted
to make effective, both for sale
of fortified and unfortified wines,
a program of self-regulation.
After July 1 fortified wines
may legally be sold only in the
26 ABC counties and there only
under strict ABC board regula-
itons. .
The wine men present for tne
Raleigh meeting unanimously
adopted three recommendations
of the executive committee, which
are to apply to the sale of all
wines in all one hundred coun-
(1) Elimination of all sales to
person-s under 18.
(2) Voluntary prohibition o
sales between the hours of mid
night and 7 a. m. on week days
and between midnight Saturday,
and 12:90 p. m. Sundays.
(3) Appointment of an advis
ory' committee from retail deal
ers to collaborate with the
tculive committee and thus give
all elements of the industry rep-
resenlation. .
Mr Caffey arid personnel of
this committee will be announced
within a week or ten day.3.
Prior to the committee meeting
