Newspaper Publishers Ass n TIIL-RSTJAY, OCTOBER 27. 1949 Liquor And Minors The act of making liquor available to minors :s without parallel as a social sin; in the eyes of le-al authorities it is a transgression that is deserving of severe penalty. Those licensed by the state to sell liquor are well informed that violation of the sales to minors bap. is one of the easiest approaches to license suspension or revocation. With good reason this ban was included in the liquor law There is nothing more sickening, nothing so-heart breaking as the sight of a minor under the influence of liquor. In borough court yesterday two youths were arraigned on charges of intoxication and breach of peace. Neither had reason to be so accused—for the law specifically excludes them from accessibility to the cause of their misfortune, liquor. How and where did they get it? They've been penalized and we hope they've learned a lesson that will stay with them, for their benefit and the community's, in the coming years. But what of those -who violated the state laws and the laws of decency by selling or giving liquor to minors? They should be sought out and made to understand the seriousness of their offense as well. Yesterday's episode was not the first coming to the attention of the authorities. We hope it was the last. The effects of this evil condition as applied to minors are well known. Let's have a go at the causes and stamp out the practice of sailing liquor to minors. It's not an easy assignment. But the net result is well worth a little effort on the part of the proper authorities. 3 Permittees who are living within the law, frowning disgustedly upon such unethical .aid, Illegal conduct, unfortunately suffer by reputation along with those responsible for the conditions outlined. They would Join with the general public in welcoming stern and immediate action to stamp out a crime against the welfare of America's youth. The Body Durable Here are some statistics that may leave you, as they did us, in a frame of mind somewhat hard to analyze. We feel more or less like this: We could have gotten along very well if the subject had never been brought up, but since somebody had to do it we're just as glad he did. Is that clear? Whether it's clear or not, there's nothing vague about the statement or the supporting data presented by one Dr. Peter J. Steincrohn in the October issue of the American Magazine. The human body, he tells us, is tougher than is generally believed and nreds only a little common-sense care to keep it functioning. And he goes on to prove it. • He succeeds, at that. No doubt it's perfectly true that the avcr- t :\Ki' mnn can get along without his Rail bladder, spleen, tonsils and appendix; one of his two kidneys or his two lungs, and only fractional parts of other equipment. For example, he can dispense with two of his four or five quarts of blood, two-fifths of his liver ,most of his stomach, four of his 23 feet of small intestine, and half, of his brain—and still live. Dr. Steincrohn didn't rest his case there but some of the other clinical evidence can be passed over without doing it a bit of harm. The body is wonderful indeed in its capacity to take punishment and still function. Yet the doctor is also right in saying that it needs cooperation. You should heed warnings because your machine may need nothing more than to have a bolt tightened here and there. Test Of Freedom Radical thinking along the atomic defense line envisions the removal of millions of people from the big cities, leaving only the essential working and management classes there. The most vital defense industries •would be put underground, as would offices of the federal government. Washington would be merely a city of monuments and empty government buildings. This, it may be assumed, is not likely to come to pass on the basis of the present situation. It could become reality only if there were an all-powerful government, with the power to uproot citi- zens forcibly and order their Jives. So much power would be granted only in a crisis of unparalleled magnitude. Then, champions of all-out atomic defense point out, it would be too late for the purposes of a hot war. The world is in a revolutionary- era. Dictators can act precipitately in arranging their chips for it, but nations whose governments are based on individual freedom cannot become autocracies overnight. France and England did little In making defensive preparations for Hitler's blitzkrieg. In the final analysis, the test is whether a people can afford freedom. If the decisjon is adverse, the greatest tragedy of all time will throw the human family back into the despotism of the Dark Ages. And if freedom is put to another war test, it is anybody's guess whether humankind can emerge unchained. The United States went to totalitarian lengths unprecedented for this country in the last war. In addition to confiscatory taxes, some of those totalitarian measures, such as rent control, still remain. If the government went much farther down the totalitarian road in another war, could the people regain their liberties after the shooting stopped? Naval expert says the atom bomb will not hurt anyone a mile and a quarter away. Why not make it a mile and a half, bub, just to be sure? Do You Remember? One Year Ago Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Amaral, of Ward street, were visiting their son, Anthony, on Long Island. Mr. and Mrs. Stuart Boyd, of North Hoa.dley street, were visiting Mr. and Mrs. P.
