This is not-true" of the North Carolina beer in
dustry's program to improve conditions in retail
Prosecuted with diligent effort since its launching
in May, 1939, our Committee's "clean up or
close up" campaign in North Carolina has won
the praise and support of law enforcement of
ficers, the press and public. During the past 2 1
months the state's beer industry has proved its
sincerity of purpose by a consistent record of
direct action and results.
The record: 1.537 retail beer outlets investi
gated; 203 warned to improve conditions. We
reported 1 76 to the authorities for action; as a
result 121 licenses were revoked, 10 placed on
probation, 2 surrendered their licensee, and 25
license renewals were refused.
We promise there will be no let-up ia our efforts
