SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Careful Study Is Vital We Haoc a Neu) Law, But Same Problems The federal government is getting set to make- a new drive against Luol- leygei's and ruin-ruiniinv. This Hlalemenl pcema lu put tlie clock back several years. It smacks of the old days when we look it for granted that Hit' 1811) amendment was here to slay. But it comes from Washington in I he summer of HUM. more than a hah' year after the amendment was buried. Details of this; new drive have a strangely familiar sound. The alcohol lax unit of the internal revenue bureau ."is 'lo he expanded. Coast guard force's; all .along thn Atlantic coast a're'to be-strengthened to strike at a ne^v "riin'i row," • j i'he .iie\'v liiiuur bottle and label I'ctjulatiuiiu will be enforced with all VJojsible strictness.

The American people had two chaneer, to uwlte mistakes in connection wilb the liquor traffic—and they took butli of them. First of all, we. more or less took It for granted that by making the traffic illegal we would solve the whole, age-old liquor problem- We tried that and it. didn't.'work. After 'less Hum a decade and a half of prohibition we found, that we had simply liopped out of the frying pan into Ihe fire. 1'rohibition brought certain benclils, but it bruughl such flagrant abuses that the amendment was finally ousted from the constitution by an overwhelming vule. And then came our second mistake. JvisL as we had originally assumed tliat outlawing Ihe traffic would automatically solve the problem, .so now our child-like faith led us to believe that legalizing the. traffic would do il. In the lirst instance we thought that all we had to do was pass a law; in the second, we Ihoughl thai all we bad to do was repeal one. But the liquor problem, like death and taxes, seems to be inescapable. It was a knotty one under prohibition, and il is almost equally knotty under Towards StahilHy The fact that the birth rale in flic United States is steadily declining may be an encouraging sign, in-Head ol the reverse, according lo Dr. W. S. Tlumip- bon, director uf the Bcripps Foundation lor Research in f'upulaliun. A jKipnlatioii which is not inci easing rapidly, an American population has been increasing ever since the republic was founded, should develop a more stable society than has been possible in the. past, predicts Ur. Thompson. Fewer |>eople will be moving into the large cities. Then: will be less of the wasteful "mushroom" development of the kind that brings alternating booms and slumps. I'cople will not sliif.1 Irom place to place and from job to job KO much. MIV will move along more evenly and with fewer dif- Uirljances. Usually a declining birth rate i;; looked upon as ominous- It is noteworthy I hat this expert on I lie subject takes 'il more hopeful view. In Adoption of a Child BV DR.
