Editor Brevard News:
The uriter of this article has been
informed and understands that it is
being freely circulated all over the
city that the dt'crease this summer in
the patronajre of the camps was the
result of the activities of the Law and
Order Leajjae. One auto public ser
vice firm made the statement that it
was the cause of the decroase in his
bu sincss, another soft drink firm sta.
ted it had caused the camps to install
a soft drink stand of their ©wn and
movinjr pictures and had injured bu
siness in jieneral in Brevard. That
your last editorial touchisng upon
the discourteous treatmejit of the
ca^fos was aimed at and a result of
the oppos ition to the camps of tlie
Law and Order Leajjue.
I have been present at every meet
ing of the Law and Order League
'inco its ofsranization, also a member
of the executive commitee and I de-
■^iro to most emphxiically deny the
fharji'es a? absolutely false and with
out any foundatic.ii whatsoever to
stand upon the .tri',tranization has
never even I the camps, pro
or con. I have investiijated the
.source of this runvor and the facts as
jratheved are as folio us; Some time
last winter a >.‘c.mmittee composed of
la'ii' , , n'presenlin'i- some of the clu'b?
of the city presciite.i to the board of
aldermen in a prot-;'ft airainrt
the camp wearin,ir bloomers and
rolled down j^fekines in the town.
The aldernuMi. I understand, refissed
to pass proh;bitin.!i the
v,'c;:rinL'' of bloomers an | stockinjcs
bu" they d’d instruct the secretary,
Mr. Lathrop, so one of the aldermen
informs me-, r?' "wn ite the mana,£rtT of
the Keystone Camp requesting- an ad-
herance to the wishes of the Com
mittee of Ladies.
The Law and Order League or the
Law EnforceTiTon^ Lea^tie is precisely
what its name implies, and its princi
pal function &*i present is the f.up-
pression of the illicit manufactory
and sale of w’tiiskey and the convic
tion and pui'.ishment of those who fio-
late tht' laws now contained upon our
statue books. When these objects
have been attt^ined, then it mny
deavor to pertuado our /city fathers
to enact our ordinance as to v/oman’s
apparel — but prohibition enforce
ment i.*> more important.
We firmly believe that the rejmrt
was purposely circulated by lawdess
element to create public opinion an-
ta.uonistic to the Law and Order Lea-
jTue to frustrate their efforts to brinj’
the ‘boo'/.e li'/ards’ to justice.
