'*** *• t '■ ■h : - Seek Enforcement Of Liquor Laws To Eliminate Liquor President Ministerial Asso ciation Comments On CuVj-ent Movements Ministers ©f the Wilkeaborcns aot only wilK oppose the move ment for A.BC liqsor stores in the two towns, hut will lead in s movement get rid of bootleg Sing that now exists, Dr. John T. . Wayland, president. Of the,. Wil kesboros Ministerial Association, said here. » Commenting on action. ef the ministers, Dr. Wayland said: "At their meeting last Monday night ministers of the Wilkes boros agreed not only to do al\ they could t0 keep liquor stores out of Wilkes county or any part thereof, but also to arouse the people to the support of the laws which we now have (in an effort to get rid of the free aind easy . bootlegging now going on her#?" Petitions are being circulated in Wilkesboro and Ndrtb, Wilkes boro asking the legislature now In session to pass an-aet enabling the towns to call an election on the question of ABC stores. One of the arguments being used by proponents of ABC stores is that liquor in any quantity or quality can be obtained at many point® around the two towns and that •bootleggers are thriving. But the ministers propose t»ot only to oppose the ABC move ment, but to lead a to elimi nate bootlegging and for enforce ment of liquor laws. Dr. Waylnad is president Of the Ministerial Association. H^_if* pastor of the Rev. C. J. whuuow, pastor of WHkesbftr© Methodist; Dr. Gilbert R. Combs, pSBtor of North Wilkesboro First Metho dist; Rev. W. N. Brookshire, pastor of Wilkesboro Baptist; Rev. Watt M. Cooper, pastor of North Wilkesboro First Presby terian; and Rev. C. D. Spake, pastor of Church of God. Further commenting on the ABC movement, Dr. Wayland said in his church news letter: "Legalizing liquor in this town or county will give it the sanction of respectability, will increase the drinking of liquor with its trail of sorrow, crime and social and economic destruction." Getting back to the subject of bootleg ging, Dr. Wayland continued: *'No time should be lost in arous ing the citizenry to the 'outlaw ing' of the outlaws we now have." It has become generally known that vast quantities of tax-paid liquor are shipped yearly by dis tillers anfl jobbers to addresses in Wilkes county, but since drink ing here is no greater than in other places it is presumed that a greater portion of the liquor billed to addresses in Wilkes fin ally makes its way to supply bootleggers at many other points. Commenting on liquor ship ments into this county Dr. Way land said: "Liquor interests, in general, have respect only for those laws whifch are forced to re spect, whether they are blockad ers, ABC'ers, or the brewers and jobbers who ship tax-paid liquor into this county in large lots, knowing full well that Its sale here is against the law. Of course, what they hope to do is to break down the moral fibre of the com munity so that good men will turn t0 anything in a bad situ ation, Just like desperate men are falling for the communist line in Eurepe and Asia today.' Movement for ABC stores was started first in Wilkesboro and during the latter part of Decem ber petitions were circulated. Pe titions were circulated during the past week in North Wilkesboro. V. F.
