^FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1932 BLYTHEVILLE. (ARK.) COURIER -NEWS arrogant .ind short-sighted tactics oj the b:ewcrs led the rising tide of dry sentiment to be as bitter against beer as It had formerly been against hard liquor. By 1913 ths brewing industry hnd a stake of a billion dollars, and it played the game to win, f- ten with little scruple as to met'n- cd. The organized breweries controlled the saloon through mortgage bonds and the ability to con Irol their supplies of b?cr. TlKm- iands of saloons were financed with brewers' money, much as tr.e big oil companies now finance gas sta- llons., Money was dumped Into doubtful slates to control clectloiio. Members of the U. S. Brewers' As-wciutlou paid dues of from a half cent to more than a dollar a barrel, according to how badly the money was needed to fight th; drys. A million dollars wns poured Into the fight in Ohio in five years. \But by this time ths drys wsre i(5 the game, too. The Antin League had seized the I leadership from' other dry organizations. It gradually gained tr.e support of most of th? evangelical churches, and the churches as such were in the fight, up to the hubs. Wayne B. Wheeler, able organizer, brilliant lawyer, relentless fo? of the salcon, and for years the ,ieal director of the league's work, testified that it spent net less than 535,000,000 in 30 years' work. Literature by the carload poured from its presses at Westcrville. Q. By 1914 It was spending $2,500,000 a year. How Prohibition Came When the World War came, tl:ere were again 13 bone-dry states, but most of tiie others had various forms of control, local option being the most popular. Centralization in Washington, drastic measures of nil kinds, became the order of the day. Everything German, includini the brewers and their beer, became suspects. In July. 1917, Senator Morris Shuppnrd's resolution to submit a bqnc-dry amendment went through the Senate, mcst of the short debate was concerned with its war aspects. Then it passed the House, with prlvislons allowing the brewers a year of grace after final adoption. , and allowing seven years for that , adoption. And nobody paid much ^attention.. There was much else to Kiink about. On Jan. 8, 1918, the first state, Mississippi, ratified. In September, 1918, the government closed UK breweries to save grain and . rann- power, and approved "Wartime Prohibition" (which became a law just 14 days after the v;ar ended, and went into effect seven months later). That helped smooth the way In "the state legislatures, as did .the tact- that nine more states went dry during the war. The states rapidly fell in line, and on Jan. 1G, 1919, the thirty-sixth state, Nebraska, ratified. The Corpse Is Rising! To this day, of course, the wets have insisted that they were jobbed, and the drys have insisted that ratification was an inevitable and logical result of long progress. The Volstead act was passed in jig time by both House and Senate, having been carefully prepared in advance with the help of the Anti-Saloon League. President Wilson vetoed it on a technical ground, but it bounced back to him the next day with an overwhelming majority. The . climax had come. A cause to which thousands of devoted men and women had given years of service had triumphec\ The golden dream had come true. In Norfolk, Va., Billy S\:nday in his tabernacle was preaching the funeral service of John Barleycorn. Midnight of Jan. 16, 1920. The "corpse" is drawn to the door in a e coffin, trailed by a frayed and abject, devil. Sunday's voice rises: I'Goodby, John! You were God's worst enemy! You were Hell's best friend! I hate you with a perfect hatred." But now it is 13 years after that night, and the "corpse" is pound- Ing lustily at the lid of his coffin. evangelist from Sulphur Springs, Ark.
