Rom where I sit.-. fy Joe Marsh Doesn't Want Bootleggers I guess » lot of you noticed Where citizens or Drew County voted to continue the legal sale ot alcoholic beverages. It interested me—and it might interest you— to know that Drew County has had the legal sale of alcoholic bev- cragea only twelve years. Old- timers down there told me that for more thin sixty years before national prohibition their county WM "bone dry"—legally, that Is. Actually, of course, it wasn't. Illegal liquor kept right on flowing from the bootleggers, they said. The people of Drew County mu«t have figured they liked legal •ale and control and wanted to keep it thai way rather than take a chance on back-nllcy bootleggers. They wanted to keep Ihelr tax nickels and tlimcs rolling to the tuberculosis sanitarium, tho school teachers and the old a&e- pensioners. They realized lhat bootleggers don't pay taxes.
