(An Editorial from the Sutton, Neb., Newt,
August 17, 1944)
>n In November Nebraska citizens will be called
•pon to voice their opinion with the liquor question
“ •; —an attempt by the dry forces headed by "Three
*• gun” Wilson to saddle the state with a new era of
homebrew, bathtub gin, an army of state agents,
bootleggers and lawlessness.
To say the present liquor laws or the manner
in which much of the liquor is dispensed is satis
factory would be a statement of untruth. To say
that prohibition with all its evils was the answer is
much more of an illusion.
Nebraska boasts one of the best liquor control
commissions in the nation aided by a set of laws
with teeth in them, but their greatest handicap has
been the lack of co-operation among the residents
of Nebraska in aiding the commission to enforce
the laws on fhe statutes. Too much time has been
spent by too many people harping “the old saloon
days were better than what we have now.” That
may be true, we never had our foot on the rail in a
saloon, so wouldn’t know. But we do know that a
mere law on the books doesn’t prohibit. Laws won't
keep the chicken house stills from distilling.
Education to temperance and a more strict en
forcement of our laws is the answer and with the
drys devoting their efforts to these two fundamen
tals. ferreting out the violators, a more rigid
character investigation of tavern applicants, and a
wholesale enforcement of our good laws will bring
the liquor “question” under control in short order.
This writer’s greatest “beef” is the "double-cross*
being handed our boys fighting overseas. While the
boys are away, the folks at home are attempting to
, “decide” the liquor question. Sure, these boys are
allowed to vote, but you can’t keep a bayonet out
of your guts with one hand and scratch a ballot
with the other.
Wait until the fellows are back—then we will
vote on the prohibition amendment and decide the
question for all time.
