Dear Editor:
Back In the Eighties and Nine
ties. it was thot necessary to teach
youth the evils of liquor and tem
perance leagues and meetings
were sponsored by church and
civic organizations where enter
tainment was furnished that was
not only entertaining but edu
cational as to the evils of its use.
If that kind of teaching was
necessary in the eighties when
people couldn’t get farther from
home than they could walk in an
evening, how much more is it
necessary now in the forties
when one can be a hundred miles
from home in less than two
hours, and when there is worse
than a saloon on most every:
street, and where our hi-ways;
are banked with bill-boards de-j
picting different brands of liquor
as the source of happiness, and
where our radios are paid well to
blare forth at all hours of the day
and night the advantages of the
curse of mankind under different
We tax ourselves to the hilt
to stop Hitler because we fear
what nazi domination would be
and then license King Alcohol
to roam at will because we want
his revenue.
King Alcohol has killed more
men and ruined more homes than
Hitler will if he lives to be a
Herr Hitler can only kill the
body. King Alchol kills the soul.
Shame on us with all our mo
dern advancement and conven
iences to do so little about so
great an evil.
Legislation has helped, but let
us realize again the value of total
abstintence by individuals, and
the necessity of education to our
children at home and in school,
the evil effects of the use of al
cholic beverages.
