Bundy Service Station Third and Hazel Phone 264 Woodcock Opposes Bingham Beer Bill Restaurants Might Become Saloons Prfhi Administrator Tells Committee WASHINGTON.—(/P)-Opposition to a bill to legalize four per cent beer was expressed before a Senate committee Tuesday by Amos W. W. Woodcock, director of prohibition en- enforcement and Dr. Joy Elmer Morgan, editor of the Journal of the National Education Association. Citing figures for pre-prohibition years, Woodcock said the'availability of beer in the past "did not decrease consumption of hard spirits" and could not be expected to make the task of enforcement easier. He added "any place where three or four per cent beer was sold on draft would be a guise for selling hard liquor there alsO." Woodcock expressed the view that the return of legal beer would bring back an institution similar ot the old saloon against which ,he said, "public opinion is farly well solidified." Even under the Bingham bill, which provides for distrbution of beer from warehouses to the home and to hotels and restaurants, he said. "You mighl have a- thing called a restaurant that might become a saloon." Dr. Morgan said tfiat (flrc|i the standpoint of the educator conditions have improved greatly under prohibition. He criticized what he termed "loose talk that has bene going on around the country" about drinking among school and college students. "Conditions among the students by and large are infinitely better than they were before," he said.
