'"I--The house, in the name of temperance, Sllrj ,would require him to buy a bottle full. •;:'•• By the time they reach an agreement prospective customers will no doubt be " ready, for at least a bottle full. ITU The only conclusion 10 be drawn from the entire argument is that there are a lot of members of the Missouri :—*• legislature on whom tin': major lesson of more than a decade, of the.:J"noblc l.So'^experiment" was a total loss. • Jf prohibition proved anything it was that it is not possible, fcy legislative . enactment, to-make wife men out of fools or strong men out of weak. Absolute prohibition, which sought to make the entire population conform to , restrictions- designed to protect the weak and foolish, couldn't do it, nnd neither can such nonsense as requiring a man to drink sitting down instead of standing tip, or lo buy his - - liquor by the bottle instead of the glas.s. It does not seem possible that any system of regulation o: control can eliminate all the evils associated with alcohol. It is believed by the ablest students of the '.subject, that abuse of alcohol is the result not so much of . _ any innate depravity in the. individual as of mat-adjustment to tlie economic ' and social scheme in which lie liiuls "' himself. Part of the problem is for economists and part for psychiatrists, or maybe for eugcnicisU. They are not going to provide a solution in a ,. hurry. In the meantime wt. can do ~ a few things. First, by a't adequate system of education we can make sure that every young man and woman grows up ] with an understanding of the harm which comes from overindulgence in • alcohol. Second, we can ;iive real enforcement to laws requiring reasonable ;-j standards of order and decency in places selling alcoholic beverages. OUT OUR WAY Third, if wo tire willing to iako such radical action, we can make the sale of liquor a public monopoly, so organized that no individual or group will have any prolit motive for encouraging the consumption of :tlcoliollc beverages. ASK.) COURIER NEWS 'WEDNESDAY, 13, 1033 Legal Orphans One of the minor problems accompanying rci«al is thrl of deciding what to do with (he people who now are in .prison for violating the 18th amendment. Accord i n « lo official records, there are at present 3,765 persons in federal prisons for violating a law which no longer exi.>i.-i. What are we to do with them? It is pretty obvious thai no blanket rule can be adopted. Many of these people, probably, ought to be released forthwith. They are men who were law-abiding in all respects but one, and they are not apt lo violate any other laws if .they tire released. Rut there are also many who ought to servo every day of I heir sentences. Some of our prohibition law violators were fairly tough babies. ( , .

By Wiiliami My husbar.d was raised in a dil- fcrcnc, church 10 mine and when we married, we agreed that we would' ncvfir discuss church matters with each other and we never have, so we have gotten along fine. I never heard of so many married couples who were raised in diiTercni, churches, and when they began to argue the relative value of baptism as practiced by each one's church, it most usually ended up in a tow and talk of a divorce. I think it much bctlcr llic way husbar.d and I handled Ihe maltcr. There is absolutely no iriction, and rlghi no\v. I don'i suppose lie could tell you what church I was raised In and I know I have forgollcu the name ol his. You see we moved soon alter we married and in keeping with our agreement tio'.liiu^ was satd about church and ns we have so many other things to claim our attention, we have not been in lor siwcial occaMpns like funerals and wedding^. \Vc | public with feel like we have helped the cliurctt i character. our. qutlc a bit for we bought one of tht best radios we could find and now and then, we hear won- derful.sermons; by/staying at home there were 154,000 deaths annually. Today the number of cases Is more lhaii 1.500,000, and yet ttiere are only 100,000 deaths. If the death rate for tuberculosis that prevailed in 1900 had continued, about 1,500.000 more people would have died of that disease since that time than actually -did die. • « • All this improvement his been brought about by public recognition of the importance of this dis- ea-se and by co-operation between the public and the medical pro- Jcssion in an attempt to study it and control It. It is first, necessary to find.out where cases may be. This is v ai;- complished by use of- the itubercu- !in lest, which, if possible, should bo applied lo every child in the community. Second, every child who has a positive reaction following the tuberculin test should have an X-ray examination to find out whether there is any evidence of the disease. Then the physician should study careiully the entire physical condition of the child by all methods known to modern clinical medicine. * * * The last step b to find out where the child caught the disease. When T ever a case of tuberculosis is found in a family, every member of that family should be examined to find out whether there are other cases which may perhaps be responsible to:- the case tliat occurs in the I1KRE TODAY rj.VVID R.WMSTF.Tt unJ«r- tnkc-A ro flntl omi «fco klUrd THACTT KlXn, Drchffilra- Iradtr.
