Liquor Consumption is not
35 per Cent of Former
Volume, Declared
Pennington Banquet Speak
er as State Convention
Of W.C.T.U. Opens
Challenging members of the
W. C T. U. throughout' the state
to "Swat That Lie.- President
Levi T. Pennington of Pacific col
lege last night delivered a force
ful, sharp bat good-humored ad
dress refuting recent declarations
of pro-liquor leaders in the state.
His address marked the high spot
of the opening sessions of the
state W. C. T. u. convention now
meeting here and came at the close
of the annual state-wide banquet
attended by 400 persons in the
First Methodist church basement.
Pennington's statements chiefly
concerned material recently re
leased by Harry B. Critehlow. who
seeks repeal of the Anderson law,
Pennington, a Quaker, laughingly
characterised Critchlow's ' materi
al as "grossly exaggerated."
Not 83 Per cent of
1914 Consumption
He cited United States govern
ment figures for the year 1929
1930, which he said showed con
clusively that not more than 35
per cent as mnch liquor was con
sumed in the United States then
as the amount legally used in
"Anyone who says that 'more
liquor is consumed now than be
fore' simply takes the public for
fools," Pennington declared.
He said Critehlow had declared
"prohibition is filling our jails"
and cited the latter's statement
that 267 men were at that time
in the state penitentiary because
of liquor violations. Pennington
said he checked the figures as of
the day Critehlow cited and found
only 34 liquor law violators in
prison here.
College Drinking
Said Exaggerated
Evidence gathered by J. W.
Crabtree, secretary of the Nation
al Education association, shows
conclusively drinking in schools
has waned in the last decade, the
speaker declared, while he scout
ed contentions that college drink
ing had increased. "Of course
drinking may have increased in
Columbia university," Pennington
stated. "Its president is wringing
wet, the state is wet and its gov
ernor urges. In contraditlon to
his oath to uphold federal laws,
that state enforcement be repeal
ed. "There's not much chance to
fight prohibition if you wish to be
accurate," Pennington stated. He
remarked that in a nationwide
auto tour of 10,000 miles he saw
only one man drunk.
Toastmlstress at the banquet
was Mrs. Ada Jolley, state presi
dent. The invocation was given by
Rer. B. Earl Parker, followed by
a vocal solo by Ronald Craven.

Decision Delayed Because
Of Revenue Questions;
Deadline is Near
With little else confronting
them, Salem school directors at
their meeting last night ponder
ed 1932-33 budget problems for
two hours. They were unable to
reach a definite decision on final
figures because of uncertainties
in revenues; finally they decided
the superintendent should draw
up a tentative budget as soon as
revenue matters are clear and
submit it to the citizen's commit
tee for approval or revision.
-Since the new school levy mast
be determined by mid-November,
little further delay is possible. It
Is expected the citixens' commit
tee will have approved a budget
by the next board meeting, Octo

The paramount question at
last night's session was whether
the legal six per cent Increase In
the school levy should be used
this year or be eliminated as a
tax reduction measure. After con
siderable discussion, all the di
rectors expressed opposition to
cutting the . levy in this fashion
because of 'necessity for paying
off warrants. Clerk W. H. Burg
hardt reported that Interest on
warrants at present Is being
paid at the rate of approximately
128 a day.
Facing the directors is the
problem of meeting probable
tax delinquencies and these war
rant payments and still show the
taxpayers a reduction In the levy.
In addition there is the probab
ility of a reduction in property
evaluation In the district, with
lower return resulting from the
same mlllage as last year's.
