Not only the wine-makers of France, Germany, Sualn and Portugal, and the distillers of Scotland have been watching the liquor debat,-: in the U. S.

Makers of the fametf Pilsener in Pilsen, Czechoslovakia, have. • already contracted with American firms to brin? in 110,000 barrels of real Pilsner a year as soon' as conditions permit. As this i s a weater supply than their produe- \ lion methods permit, It is expect/ ed that an advance supply of this •will be stored In Canada-awaltintt the starters' gun in the race for the great American gullet.

The country drank imported rum and home-made'whis- ky with such heartiness as to shock even- Eurooean traveler who has set. down his impressions'. This hard-whisky-drinking tra dition continued until the mWdle of the past, century when the ris? ot the German brewers .began. Agitation for the control of drinking also began very early, though all the early efforts 'wcr-i aimed pt encouraging drinkers lo desert fiery whiskies, rums and brandies for varieties of beer. Dr. Benjamin Rush (1185) is usually regarded as the first real cam- PPlgnsr oi-ainst the evils of drink. Roughly, the course of the movement against alcohol moved from one objective to another something like this: '• Moderation. 2. Personal abstinence from "hard liquor." ' 3. Personal total abstinence. <• Pressure on others for abstinence. 5. Anti-saloon license agitation 6. Stale prohibition. 7. National prohibition.. The temperance movement was the first stage. By 1835 it claimed 1,500,000 members In a country that only had 13,000,000 peoole. Many of these societies permitted their members to u« beer and light wines. But shortly after that brewing began its rise, and the temperance people banned beer ar well as spirits. Th Mexican War was on when the first prohibition law came to America and Mayor Neal Dow of Portland led Maine to becom" l»ne dry In 1846. By ISM there wtrc 13 prohibition state.?. By the end of the Civil War. ho'werer, eight of the 13 slates had abandoned prohibition. Then the w. C. T. U. It was in the 80's that the real battle was Joined on a grand seal*. The U. S.
