NOVEMBER 16, 1932 |Qu p st'nn «t When Congress on Volstead Modification mended states 1 WILLIS THORNTON NBA Service Writer Jilt. 193?. NEA Service, i nc , .^ii tlie Volstead act is mod- lified. or even when thc 18th (amendment Is repealed, dial's not Illie end of Ihe fight—that's only Illv beginning.". I Fred G. Clark, commander of |.t million nnd a quarter Crusaders, "We're, for repeal," he contln- Jues. "simply because outright ro- Ipeal Is tlie nulckest way, to get to |a real solution of the problem. "But repeal is no solution in litself. any more than national Jprohlbiilon was a solution. Medication of the Volstead act is no • solution. Suppose Congress de- Iclares that 4. per cent beer Is non- Itnimicating In fact. It will be very fctyd .to regulate thc sale of a • beverage that Congress has de- Jclared non-intoxicating. Would a IplBce Just like a saloon which sold pmccs which could serve • it. he a saloon? Plenty of comoll- except shops run directly •cations can follow that. Tlie thin-? their own supervision to I Is to rejvw.1 the 18th amendment, •land then, having cleared the Iprcund. to build a new nnd better against the local bootleggers, but tlie Corporation would ship none of Its liquor to dry states, Shipments to a wet or partially wet slate would be delivered -In bond to a state agency. Thc state ngency would then distribute It to Its wet communities. Local option would decide which communities would receive shipments from the state agency. Local branches of the state oiganlrallon would issue permit books lo local drinkers. l.rl Stairs Do Policing Dr. Nichols Murray Butler, Columbia University's Republican president, also proposed a plan, starting with outright repeal of tin 1 18th amendment. "Every slate would then regain tfft right lo exercise Its police power to deal with tho liquor traf- r? ,, v '; thin its boundaries as It sees "I. he pointed out. He recom- ' iiKiica oiii/uill ICSVl^C a slate selling plan _ no .j| qv|ors to ue drunk on the premises where ™l'l. the sinte to tax -very sale. Butler believes that Qoiwess by It.s aiit'iorlty over Interstate commerce already has Ml necessary power to protect dry states from ^Ipments of liquor. Mrs. Joh,, s . siieopard of the Women s Organliation for National Prohiljillon Reform, proposed a slntc commission to have general power over manufacture Import and .sale of nil liquors Authorized distilleries and brewer.'?s could sell only to 'the commission at a fixed profit. Local boards would recommend for licenses all places which could serve Honors . •structure that will really solve the | problem." The Crusaders advance no iron- Iclad formula for this solution. In • fact, Clark doubts that anv sin- Igle formula will be found that Iwill vleld the riaht answer in rur- Inl 'N'cw York and Chicago. 1 Saloon Is Oat Instead, he offers a set of prin- Iciples on which the detailed answer should be built. "Remove the J profit from the distributiiiK end of tlv> liouor business. The federal povernment must protect such states as want to remain dry. The saloon must not be allowed to return." Bv tb<! saloon. Clark means especially Mv» oreanizi'd saloon pow- rr. (he ""ni'^r truffle." which wns ed - bv national "rohlhl- tlnn. The saloon as a drinking nnlv and twcn driven iin<tar- and more sin- n "Uni'o- traffic" has reolaccd the olrl.

Wicfcp.rsham Commission, which combines features of m<w*. of Ihe European svstems. hut takes noi-. «r American cus- f—- and institutions. ITc.wonoses that a 71st amendment rCP"allne the 18th and Eivin? Cnnpres"! cower to regolat" or p.fihlbit th" linuor trnffii;. It could retain national nrohlh'tion. remit ell or part of the problem to the Ft.ites. or Tdopt any solution that seemed better. Concress then would create a hl-rmrllsan National Commission on Mquor Control to mnlto rcisu- iitihns for lir\uor control, subject In laws of Coneress nnd the states. Coneress would then charter a privately owner! National Coronr- atton to have a monouolv on muk- T and dislribittinir liquor subject , , the regulations of thi Commission. Stockholders would (ret a re- h)'n scl by Consress (5 to 7 por C(n t). All earnings above the I return would be paid in- 'fo the U. S. treasury. \Thf Commission would oversee distribution of the company's oro- duct.s In Rccordtnce with the liws of th= states, set prices, and fix standards of purity. Dry .slates would h»ye to »ntorc« their '"" tottled goods for "off the premises" consumption. The profit to hotels and clubs would be limited by selling them only a stipulated amount of liquor at wholesale prices. Any over that would have to be bought from the commission at retail prices. Thc commission would also license establishment of refreshment parlors where II- fiuors. food and non-alcoholic drinks would be sold, the liquors, however, to be sold at prices permitting no profit. (That is the Knelish Carlyle system.) Taxation May Be Ansjrtr Others feel that, since thc power to tax Is the power to destroy. Congress can effectively control the liquor. question entirely by taxation. Th; point of protecting dry states Is bound to be a critical one. The.-Webb-Kenyon law of 1913 put ' 'federal authority back of stopping shipment of liquor Into dry states. It halted a brisk mail-order 'business of "original packages", of liquor delivered to customers in dry' states. The drys now feel that if the I8th amendment Is repealed Con- .jress^could repeal the Webb-Kenyon. law at. any lime. Manv states would be reluctant tri reasSnme a burden deposited at Congress' doorstep 13 years ago. Most of them have taken the stand, 'when the national government took a hand in thp lob. of "all rieht, you do it ail!" For in 1930. of the 48 slates. 39 did not appropriate, a dime for prohibition enforcement.: Manv were rirv states- before national "prohibition.
