EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first of a series of sis stories dealing; with the present movement for the returr of beer, a movement intensified by the recent ! elections. j BY WILLIS THORNTON NEA Service Writer (Copyright, 1932, NEA Service, Inc.) The speaker's gavel which falls on Dec. 5 to open Congress will te a himg-starter.. But I'.ow great. a flow of what kind of bocr can issue from that bun3 in dry United States is a bift question. This last "Lame Duck" Congress will assemble with an unmistakable cry from the entire counlry rlnginj in its ears and demand- in? that something be done about prohibition. Something will be dene. Just what, is tea certain that some enthusiasts believe. They think it is all over but the shouting. Tho first move will be for. legal beer, immediately, before the 18th amendment is touched. Assume, that by adding together the wets and such former drys as accept the "mandate of the people," such ILfllfllL a bill can be passed, it be 1 What will •If the beer provided is really intoxicating in fact, it clearly violates the Constitution, and the courts will have* no choice but to .throw it out. If it is really non- will satisfy the /Jnta-,...-, TTursty?, :• <-"£ta££. h r'-'C' r Jjct'.vDcr.. . sub-zero near-beer new permitted, and a beer , with im. unquestioned kick, I|ts a compromise. A compromise 'tfiat will make' the brew palatable with maybe 'just the least bit of a lift to it, and yet not intoxicating beyond jhy reasonable doubt. In the range between 2.75 per cent and 4 pjbr cent lies that compromise, K; beer that the thirsty would be glad to 'get, and yet which leaves enough doubt as to its intoxicfrtlng properties to gel trfe benefit of court approval and avoid a possible veto by President Ifpbver, who is at'heart a dry. Arid How Soon? Any alcoholic content up to per cent is debatable, with equally reputable authority on both sides. Much of the light laser beer sold before the war was cnly arouno. 3 per cent, and nearly; all beer was under 4 per cent. The O'Connor-Hull bill, defeated 228 to 169 lost session, bill certain to come up early in this uie, provided 2.75 per cent by weight, a 3 cents a pint ta-f, and sale in bottles only. Between the extreme wets, fighting for the limit at 4 per cent, and the drys, such a compromise seems likely. But suppose such a bill" i: . passed? Can you get jour besr immediately? - Maybe. Hns yom Vate a prohibition enforcement act like the Volstead act, prohibiting drinks of more than 1-2 of 1 per cent alcohol? The chances arc two to one it has, for only 15 states nre at this moment legally prepared to receive beer even II Congress legalizes It. Before tlu Past election there were six: Maryland. New York, Massachusetts Heiada, Montana, Wisconsin. Nine nntcs repenled their enforcement J=ws in the last election: Michigan. Louisiana, Washington. New Jcr- 1 C ' V> * CaI " or "la. Oregon. Arizona. N"th Dakota, Colorado. makes 14 slates which nave repealed enforcement ncU since national prohibition (Mary- ir.nci never had any), and makes than 40,ooo,QOO people lo receive whatever Con- press offers them. But in 20 other Mates even If the national law is lepsalcd, the state law remains. Furicus fights are certain In the legislatures of many of these states to repeal state tows and get them In shape to profit by any national modification. The A. F of L. and the Crusaders for 'the wets, and the W. c. T. U and Anti-Saloon League for the drys "re already active here What of the Slates? Bear in mind that so far as Congress has power to legalize beer at all, It must do It on the theory that It is non-lntoxlcaling. That brings up tha next problem If Congress declares 4 per cent beer non-intoxicating, it Is possible that practically an the state .'aws (which set a 1-2 of I per cent limit) will become unconstitutional, being in conflict with n law of Congress.
