The New and Observer's ediori
al comment on the case August 20
was headed PINK ELEPHANT IN
PINK HILL. The editorial snid:
Maybe that liquor store sales
man down in Pink Hill violated no
law or regulation wnen be let two
Negroes buy 284 pints of liquor in
one day. The regulation in force at
the time read: "The county ABC
stores shall not sell more than one
gallon of alcoholic beverages to any
one person at any one time." There '
was a fault in that regulation in fail
ing to stipulate what was meant by
any one time." However, by the
time the two men had made their
36th trip each to the store in one
day. buying a gallon each time, no
statement from the head of the
State ABC system should have been
required to make it .clear that the
series of sales "went against all
the principles of the ABC system."
If the salesman had sense enough
to take the liirJcr oit the shejf and
ring up the sales in the cash regis
ter, he must have known that at the
Tiie store and hc salesman should
not be exempt from' discipline be

took advantage o'. a technicality in
the regulations to help law violators
