ONE EUROPEAN NATION IS DRY;, 11 WIDE OPEN Survey Shows Iraproremont In Personnel of QTialiflcations. By STHWAH.T BROWN U n i t e d Frcss Staff Correspondent. PARIS, Jan. 23--Only one nation of Europe--Finland--has a full prohibition law eltnilar to that enacted in tho United Statee. Six other natlone have stringent regulations, four have local option and 11 have almost no restrictions, a survey of 22 European countries shows. Tho countries which have tried prohibition are principally among tho northern group and one reason ad- TOnccd. was that those countries had a higher level oE drunkenness which provided a good Hold for temperance campaigns. Tho countries which have some iorni of stringent regulation of tho sal of liquor, are In addition to Finland, Great Britain, Belgium, Sweden, Italy, 1-isthonia and Latvia. The «jls employ different means of regulating liquor consumption and any Hat of atrlnuent methods must be arbitrary depending upon interpretation of the lawa. Latins Flgfht Prohibition. Among, the iiatlorm without or almost without regulations are France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Csecho- Slovnkla, Austria, Ilnngary, Jugo- slavia, Holland, Greece and Switzerland. Thoss countries are cither Latlnic or Germanic, both races being chiefly wino and boer drinking peoplen. Great quantities of w i n u and beer are consumed In those counties but temperance statisticians say their records tend towarct sobriety. ( The ~L «"i t i n countries, especially France, Spain and Portugal, present a problem f o temperance societies bo- eauee they consume and export larg-e quantities oi .spirits and have con- etantly fought prohibition in other countries. They are party responsible for the lessening of prohibition restrictions in Norway nad Iceland. Finland, on the Arctic Sen, was the first country to adopt prohibition. The iaw was pnoeted 12 yeare before tho United States wont dry but WJ..B quaoh-ed as unfavorable to the Ku- ro-poan wino growers by tlio Grand Iuke of Russia, In 1917 Finland, as nu independent country, again passed a dry law which is still in efleet. The enforcement lias not been perfect and smuggling still exists. Delfe-iiuii's Law. » Belgium hae prohibited drinking in public houses of any liquor more than 3S per cent alcohol since 191.9. Bol- giaiw may purchase liquor in not less than two q u a r t lots tor home consumption. Tlio moabure applies to all bars, cafes, hotels, rcsUuran'n, stores, t r a i n s , boats and the streets. No bottle may be uncorked outside of th/e- purchaser's homo. Th'M'e are severe pen- alltos for violators, the law is carried out btrlctly and th3re are few violations, tho merit impartial oliservera agree. A certain iotitude in interpretation of law makes It possible to sell liquor by the glass In privatp cluba, although supporters o£ th« law main- l a i n tliiit workmen drink leeu than be fore 1!)10 and crimes clue to drunken- uesti have dec raesed one-third, police reported. Te upcrance leaders, iiow- -ver, are now working tor total prohibition. Great Britain has reduced alcohol consumption by two methods--high government duties on tho salo oJ spirits and beer and shortening of liourtj of ealo !u public houses. It is t'stinmtod that consumption has de- t-rcubed one-hulf since 1913 In strong liquors, although beer consumption hub been Ii'ss reduced. A Koyal com- lulsfiicm has now boon named to in- vt«tig«to tho f i t u a t l o n and report on whether there should be changes,. Pfonui}- Kopcals Law. The widely-Known Bratt system is employed In Sweden, whore only adults poeesetdng Bratt cards to show they aro temperate in habits may purchase liquor. Only homo consumption Is permitted. Tho government has hnd to couttMxl w i t h m u c h smup;- .jling but has alwllshcd saloons and decreased tho national drlnjc bill. Norway had luli^ prohibition on 1019 but repealed it in l!)2C bet-aiibeot com- nierciui pressure from wine-growinfe countries who retaliated by refusing to buy Norwegian products and also because of smuggling and difficulty of entorcement. The now law, permittins: local option, was said to be the most vigorous in Europe. It permitted only those cities where spirits were sold boEore the war to re-Introduce liquor sale. Ksthonia, on the Baltic Sea, flrst tried the Swedish card system but abandoned it in favor of strict local option which lias proved satisfactory in the estimate o£ prohibitionists. Its neighbor, Latvia, has only n tow restrictive measures, including the closing of .nil bart from Saturday noon until Monday morning, materially decreasing alcoholic consumption. Denmark haw restricted the consumption ot liquors ' through high clutiee and local option, introduced in 1935. All Baltic Boa countries fliavo J a n agreement t o suppress emugglhig. ; Iceland, uu independent country under the King of Denmark, established fill prohibition iu 1915 but modified it later to permit sale of Spanish wines because Spain Imd threatened to re- striot the sale of Iceland's fish. Tho country etill lull prohibition of sale ot spirits. Russia has n state monopoly on production of -*odka, but no restrictions". The government permits lotul option, which hag uol been used to «ny great extent. 1'oland voted for local option in 1921 and the system has been fairly successful. The president , o£ Czecho-Slovalda is a toetollor out j there are no restrictions on liquor in j the country. Jugoslavia hiie no stringent liquor regulations ami there has been little agitation for prohibition in Austria, Germany, Hungary or Holland. i ItalyVi only restriction is a fascist measure requiring early night closing of bars and cafei. and limitation of the numoar of licensed houses. Spain and j Portugal are wiue-drinklni; countries I where little headway has been made, , by prouihitioukils and Greece in a j temperate c o u n t r y with uo restrictions on drink. France hws no prohibition except on absinthe, which was prohibited iu 131 r bucauso it was blamed for a bad effect j on health of drinkers. French, police , aro required to arrest any drunken person but arrests have decreased by half slnco "before the war. The consumption of hard liquor in France for 1928 surpassed all previous records.
