Liquor Law Enforcement \Vc have no quarrel with Governor Futi'cll for his insistence upon the adoption of certain Inw enforcement legislation As <i condition to lii.s signature of the Thorn liquor legalization bill. Without) adequate enforcement regulation of tlie liquor traffic will be as tlisniiil a failure as was the attempt to suppress it. It i.s possible tlio governor's measures will make some contribution toward utich enforcement. It is oilr belief, however, that experience will show that notwithstanding tliu new state police system and notwithstanding Die special powers given the courls, enforcement of I he liquor laws will in the future, as in the past, sniccuud or fail on the basis of the energy and inlogiity of local oll'ira's awl'Uie KiipiKH'l (liey receive from public opinion. It is within ilie power of county .sheriffs and city police to enforce geii- •wiit observance of lhi> ln\\>i governing the liquor IralVic. No doubt there will always he some violations, as • there are of other laws, but scandalous disregard of the restrictions and limitations which the la\v imposes will result, if if, results at all, from the refusal and not from the inability of local officers to compel compliance. Occasionally dislione-st men find (heir way into our law enforcement services who, for a shiin> of Ihiv profits, protect violators. They ciijmot extend such protection for long, however, if public opinion really demands law enforcement. As a matter of fact laxity on the part of enforcement officers is more cor.mionly the result of an unwillingness to act in opposition to public opinion than to any collusion with criminals. When they fail to enforce a law it is usually because the people have made it 'dear thai !h<;y don't waul it enforced. Success of the new liquor regime in Arknnsas, therefore, depends in the loiig run upon the willingness of the .stale's citizenship to give the regulated sale of liquor a support they never gave prohibition of its sale. If (he people of the slate withhold Iheir patronage from purveyors of illegal whiskey and insist upon prosecution of persons who fail to comply with the law, the result of legalization will be goad. U they fail in (his the sitiia- OUT DUE WAY 'lion will be as bad or worse lhaii before repeal. The Folly o'J (he Law Mr. Bumble's imiiiortal declaration that "the law is an ass" is not without plenty of confiniuuion. Sometimes the supporting evidence is pretty tragic. •As an instance, consider the case of the unmarried housemaid in Austria who was .sentenced to two months' imprisonment the other day because her baby froze to death in her arms. When her child was born, tin; girl's employer* immediately turned her out of their house. She went to her parents' home, and they likewise refused lr> admit either her or her child. So she started trudging off through the cold on a .sevcrnl-milc hike lo her grandparents. On the way the baby froze to deaIh. Now .she has been jailed for "an offense, 'against the security of life." If the law is not, at times, just as much of an ass as Mr. Humble .said it was, wouldn't that accusation have been leveled against either her ciriploy-f cr.s or her parents? ' j Thank V our Dentist The hardy cave dweller of old never had modern delicacies like cake, crowned chicken, and ice cream, lie gnawed hi.s meat oil' the bone and ate unhulled .grain—and, according lo some modern, theorists, of thai fact he had hi'iilLliy teeth. However, Or. K. \\. Uewmtl, professor of anthropology at Denver University, has been locking at the skulls of ancient cliff dwellers in Mesa Verde National Park, >-.u<| he finds evidence to the contrary. These old-timers, who lived on coarse, lough foods all (heir lives, had cavities in plenty, suffered from toothache just as we do, mid also had pyorrhea. And one must shuddg'r painfully to think of having toothache in a land where the only possible remedy was lo summon a neighbor and have him knock Ihe decayed tooth out of your head with a pointed slone!
