From where I sit ... oe Marsh WHENEVER I hear about anybody having a big family 1 think of Dad and Ma Hoskins. The Hoskins' had thirteen children. They weren't a bad bunch of kids, by and large —but it seemed one or the other of them would always be having a fuss with the neighbors, or would break a window playing baseball, or some other kid trick. Kept Dad and Ma mighty busy all the time. * * * One day Dad got a bright idea. He called the whole family together for a special meeting at the dinner table. He told them he was tired of checking up on them all the time He said he thought they were old enough now to check up on themselves. The older children would watch the younger ones. They would have meetings every so often and hand out rewards or punishments. * * * Well, it was a crazy idea but the kids liked it and they started behaving better than they ever had before. The idea worked and Dad finally fid get a little time for himself. I mention this story about Dad Hoskins because ifs something jike what I understand the beer industry is doing to regulate itself. * * * As I see it, most of the beer industry behaves itself perfectly all right ... but every now and then, I guess, a retailer comes along who runs a place that isn't up to scratch . . .sort of like a wayward Kid. So like Dad Hoskins' family, the brewers and beer distributors have united together in an industry self-regulation program to help the proper authorities "clean up or close up" offending retail places. The brewers, who want to protect beer's good name, cooperate wisely with the authorities wh» enforce the laws.
