Scenes like the above were the order of the day when the tout. of
Finland balloted to decide the -fate of what is their equivalent of our
Eighteenth Amendment. The nation-wide referendum resulted in an
overwhelming vote being cast for the repeal of the prohibition law.
The most remarkable feature of the referendum was the heavy vote
cast by Finnish women, most of the credit for the abolition of the
unwanted law being awarded to them as a consequence. Photo shows
a peasant woman, who journeyed a long way to register her protest
tgainst prohibition, marking her ballot at a Helsingfors polling booth.
