No Repeal In Oregon
NOT enough attention is beikg paid by the people to the
threat of repeal of the Oregon bone-dry law. In such a
welter of issues as confront the voters at this election the
confused voters may fail to understand just what a vote to
, repeal means. In the first place; it would not restore the li
Aqttor traffic in legal form, because the Volstead act and 18th
; amendment still control; and the prohibition amendment to
the state constitution would still stand. It would however
open the way to the great growjth of the illegal traffic, and
: bootlegging and speakeasies would flourish far more than at
A. present. ; " ;j -
i k Oregon newspapers are waking up to the dangers of
the state repeal bill. The Albany Democrat-Herald says:
, "Every home, every business: nan, whose trade Is founded
on family prosperity, will do well to oppose the repeal of the
tato prohibition law. It Is unthinkable that Oregon will turn
Its back to this law and by so doing deliver the state to the
'' bootlegging Interests. j :
"Oregon, one of the first states of the union to achieve
prohibition, certainly would be inviting the whirlwind of crime
and disorder, if it should turn Its back on its ideals of the past. -
l The Eugene Register-Guard ? which professes to be a
"wet" paper and desirous of repeal of both state and nation
al prohibition, says of the pending initiative measure:
"We do NOT however believe that this change should be-
Sin by repealing the state prohibition law, and we believe with
the "dry"' that much confusion and lawlessness might result.
Some people see in this repeal bill only a sort of referendum to
test state sentiment. It would do much more than that. National
enforcement, always ineffective, would become almost a dead
letter. A liquor traffic almost unlimited and untaxed and un
controlled would be the logical result. State policy should fol
