It began 1 about 1920jatidC petered out a,few weeks ago with the bringing Of-justice of'such specimens as Alvin Karpis and "Lucky" Luciano/ And in the study of its rise and fall, there is a j .wealth 1 of illumination about the ways and customs of ' the 'Attierican people. •. , : THe principal, bit of illumination is that not en- ferely. surprising fact that we did it all ourselves. We brought on the era of crime, and we cut it out, • We had gangsters because we were what we were, . ;and, We at last taught them who is boss because, by the grace of Providence, we are what we are. The good that is in us and the bad that rides along With it played equal parts in the era of gangsterism. ,'. It is easy to say that we wished the gangsters on our-selves by passing the prohibition law. Easy—and inexact. •For, Although prohibition gave the city tough his chance - he ^didn't come in out of the void. We had set the stage ' for .him, and given him a spear to carry,.long before.

We got just about what , ,we.'ai&ked for, and we had nobody to blame but ourselves. ": 'But'there is a brighter side to it.
