Carney GEOROR WASHINGTON'S solemn words echo with equal truth today. Now, as then, the duty of a good citizen is to avoid the extremes of bigotry and intolerance—lo practice mo'dcralion in thought, word and deed. And moderation, as we of The House of Seagram have so long publicly insisted, should include moderation in the use of whiskey. For one of America's respected freedoms is the freedom to enjoy this luxury. Yet whoever docs so must remember that such freedom carries ifs own high responsibility—the responsibility (o "drink moderately." Only thus, in our considered opinion, can he truly merit the title of "good citizen"-and good father.
