facts public and aroused our
citizens by their revelations.
Third: We feel that as religious
leaders we have been remiss in
our work of education, and in our
failure to arouse the public to the.
dangers .confronting our young
Fourth: We feel that the chief
responsibility must rest upon the
home.- Parents who heglect their
children, who fail to maintain con
fidential relations with their chil
dren, who do "not -know where
their children are. nor what they
are doing when they1 are away
from them night after night. Have
a responsibility which they can
not shirk nor lay upon the should
ers of the teachers and religions
leaders of the community.
Fifth: ' It is a well known fact
that citizens who hold high posi
tions in social and civi circles
are in the habit of using liquor
themselves and offering it freely
in their social gatherings. Young
people are perfectly familiar with
this fact. Such citizens cannot
evade the responsibility for their
action, nor have they any right to
-blame ihe young people for drink-
ins, nor the officers of the law
for failing to enforce laws which
they themselves violate. Hoot les
sors who sell to adults will sell to
minors and no patron of the boot
legger has any right to complain
if the bootlegger sells to the
youth in the komes of his patrons,
or in the homes of bis patrons
Sixth: In view of the situation
as it exists we are resolved to do
all that we can to change these
conditions, and we call upon all
good citizens, irrespective of their
personal tastes and principles, to,
join with us in this work. -
