LATE W. C. I U. MOTES PREDICTIONS that drunkenness would be more prevalent and traf- 'Io accidents Increase It the proteo- ;lon of the Wright act were withdrawn Irom the citizens of Ix>s Angeles have received quick confirmation through figures compiled by the chief statistician of the police department. The repeal of the Wright act Is not yet three weeks old, yet arrests for ntoxlcatlon, both on the streets and at the wheel of the automobile, already have started t<3 mount. In 13 days while the Wright act was still In 'oroe, the total arrests for those of- 'ensos were 889) In 13 days after the act was repealed the total rose to 1096. In the November period there were 363 traffic accidents, 492 Injuries and 9 deaths. In the same period In Decem- aer accidents numbered EOT, Injuries in traffic 695 and deaths reached the record-breaking total of 29. The grim reaper has taken swift and erriblo advantage of the opportunity afforded him to take additional toll of human life through the vote which permitted a more liberal flow of Intoxicating liquors among those who use the public streets. Three times the number of killed, since the restraining hand of the Wright act was removed, Is enough to give pause to the most ardent wet, It should make every mnn and woman In Los Angeles reconsider our street safety problem with the reasoning of sober second thought. Many of those who, caught In the general flood of protest last November, voted for the repeal of the Wright act, would do well to watch the record of Increased traffic perils caused by lack of enforcement of the laws against the sale of Intoxicants.—L. A. Times. Some time ago, Dr. S. Parks Cadman, the noted minister who ench week broadcasts over a national chain, was asked: "Why do you stand against the worker's having his beer? He gets It In England, nnd I am told that Englishmen are more sober than Americano," To this, Doctor Cadman replied as Follows:' "Your question comes to Hand at a moment when the British Parliamentarians report against the extension of the drink traffic, nnd the British medlcnl authorities are pleading that their countrymen give the ohlld'ron nourishing food, They point to the fact that, under test, the children who get an extra dal(y ration of milk show an Increase In height of 23 per cent nnd an average Increase In weight of 45 per cent ovor those children who, do not get the extra ration. "It would seem that thin baslo food lt»B a remnrkable Influence on physical development. Yet Orcat Britain consumes very much less milk than any other advanced nation. Beer takes Its place. Under present conditions the Industrial groups of that country nre too. poor to buy both milk and beer; so the parents get the beer, and the children don't get the milk. This much at least appears beyond argument. Open to Convletton "Further, If you can convince me that beer builds up the American home, fortifies Its children, strengthens the parents to do their Jobs more efficiently, or lessens the risk of physical Injury and the dangers of vehicular traffic, you will have Justified your claim, and I shall have- advocated an errorless doctrine. "But the facts based on experience flatly contradict the efficacy of beer or^of any other Intoxicating liquors when used as a beverage to confer the physical benefits we. have named. Milk produces a higher level of Intelligence In our children than any other food, while beer befuddles the brain of Its users," Doctor Irving Fisher, noted economist of Yale University says: "The Idea that the liquor business creates something economically Is on a par with the Idea of tai undertaker who complained that the \>uro milk committee In his town hud ruined his trade In babies' funerals."
