There is nu reason to i'car llm U>e situation after repeal wil! be worst- than that under prohibition, but apparently the opparttiiiity for constructive action is being muffed, for the time being at least. At this there is rejoicing amoni; the aforementioiic;! fanatical prohillition- iits. Not only are they refusing lo t(J - oiiurate with those who are working sincerely for a socially sound and workable solution of the liquor problem, but some of them in rereiit weeks have actually' indulged in public rejoicing at the prospect that wo I stupidity and political avarice will make u botch of liquor control in a number of states. Gentlemen of this type dp not seem to be interested in temperance as much as .in prohibition. If temperance can't be achieved their way it is satisfactory to them if it is not achieved nl all. '"It is' not from Ihe ' prohibitionists jeering from the sidelines, however, as much as from Ihe poliluv.ins in places of responsibility and power thai the real danger in the pivsi.-nl siluation arises. Tax revenues to lill depleted treasuries and jobs for importunate followers are what the p-iliticians have their eyes on, and if lullillment of Iheir requirements along these lines claahes with a sound program for keeping the evils of liquor at a minimum it seems likely the latter, for the present at least, will come out second best.
