I'fi-i fa!fjyi-miaMtS Ma-aaaa. ' '.H. '.y TWO AKRON BEACON JOURNATJ TUESDAY, OCTOBER 21, 193(1 GALL W IN TO JOIN CAMPAIGN FOR MODIFICATION Mrs. Amasa Stone Mather Says Mistake Of Prohibition Should Be Rectified I AUKS AT COLUMBUS Spatial ia tha Btaton Jenrnal COLUMBUS, Oct. Sl.-Maklng temperance education the keynote of her apeech, Mra. Amasa Stone Mather, of Cleveland, today Issued ringing challenge to the women of Ohio to display their aame courage with which they fought the saloon to fight present intolerable conditions under prohibition. The address was given at the state conference of the Women's Organization for National Prohibition Reform, delegates to which assembled here today. "The Women's Organization for National Prohibition Reform is not advocating the use of liquor, we are fighting the abuse of liquor," Mrs. Mather said. "We stand for temperance, for wise and honest government, Wr better social conditions and for the protection of the right of the individual to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. "We are unalterably opposed to the saloon and we are equally opposed to the present unlicensed and unregulated liquor traffic in the control of the criminal classes, which exists today as the result of prohibition. We are pledged to work for the repeal of the 18th amendment and the return to the states of the right of liquor control. Undermining Of Morals "Many women of the country who gave freely of their time, energy and service during the war are the ones who are now uniting in this, an even greater crisis, because of Its Insidious undermining of our national constitution and the morals and deals of our people. Women are working for a change in the prohibition law for basic reasons, founded on principles and an ideal: The Ideal being temperance and the principle being a preservation of the fundamentals of government. For unless the larger unit of government can be preserved, women quite rightly feel their homes art in danger. "It is human to err, but It Is more Intelligent to see and recognize a mistake and try to undo or rectify it in some way. Certainly the large majority of women, at the time the 18th amendment was passed, hoped that all the promises made then would be fulfilled. They hoped that the children of our country would perhaps be protected from ever knowing the abuse of liquor. In the abolition of the saloon, they hoped that drunkenness would decrease, prisons would at least be less filled, that politics would be cleaner and that because this prohibition law was written Into our constitution, It would be respected. "Can we truthfully say, In. looking back over the 11 years since the adoption of the 18th amendment, tiiat any of -these things have proved to be the case? By the right way of handling the liquor problem, namely by education and control and not total abstinence by the repeal of the 18th amendment and then by enactment of laws in the several states that will be acceptable to the people of those states, In replacing disrespect for law by respect, disobedience by obedience won't we more nearly gain our Ideal of temperance?" Wete Are Respected A change In public sentiment In the last eight months, Mrs. Mather said, has given respectability to the "wets," once branded by the prohibitionists as including only those interested in the liquor business or having an especial fondness for liquor. Now the "wets" include many who have no appetite for liquor "but who are determined that this shocking government folly shall ceaae," he said. "At no time since the passing of the 18th amendment has the weapon of the vote and the responsibility given us at that time been so important as It is today." Mrs. Mather concluded. "With the coming of the election on Nov. 4, let us face our responsibility and vote accordingly. "Therefore I plead with all you women who recognize the dangers to the youth of today to have the courage of your cnvlctlns. Be unafraid! Be glad to Join the Women's Organization for National Prohibition Reform and help with all your might to repeal the 18th amendment."
