Jf.'/T \Prior to being appointed United States Mershal, I was not only anti- prohibition -but was very active a- galnst prohibition,\ writes Phil B. Baer, U. S. Marshal for the Eastern District of Texas. \Since my appoint- ment I have come in contact with the nnti element in such a way that 'my eves have been opened' and I sincerely trust that I can render the fsame service to the cause of prohibi- tion in tho future that I have ren- dered to the cause of the wets in the past. 1 do not favor changing the prohibition act except to make the penalty more severe I believe that this law has done more toward the happiness and prosperity of our peo- ple than anything else except the Christian religion.\ Marshal Baer says that in traveling over the state he finds that sentiment in favor , of prohibition and law enforcement is steadily increasing.\ REV.

We got to Chris- tiana late Saturday night, After being settled in our hotel we went out for a walk. It was near to mid- night but the streets were crowded with people. Reeling past us in a mo- ment came two young men: so intoxi- cated that they walked as if on a razzle-dazzle. On Sunday we saw a score of drunken men. We stood on the oppoiste side of the street and gazed at the front door of a great wine and beer resort. It was so full that the people were admitted only in relays—as two or more people came out two or more were admitted. Many who came out were in a state of intoxication. \We mention this not primarily in criticism of Norway, but as a statement of fact which throws light on American prohibition problems. Change our prohibition law and permit the sale of wine and beer, and you immediately bring in again all the evils of drunkenness. \I have seen enough to convince me that beer drinking and wine drink- ing do not make for sobriety. More than ever, if that be possible, I am against tampering with the Volstead act.\ Mother's Day May 11th 1 • • » • • I_ Remember her with a gift or card.
