DRY DISPUTES WET ON

' Oregon Voter.
PRESIDENT LEVI PENNING
TON of Pacific College, New
berg, disputes assertions by Harry
P. Critchow, wet referendum lead
er. Instead of more liquor being
consumed now than in 1914, he al
leges present consumption is less
than 35 in quantity, while popu
lation has increased, basing his es
timate on reports of government
investigators. Instead of more ar
rests for drunkenness, he cites of
ficial records showing fewer. In
stead of more liquor being consum
ed by students, he cites evidence of
school authorities based on obser
vation and experience under wet
and dry periods, indicating that con
sumption of liquor by minors today
is far less than in wet days.
In all these particulars, Dr. Pen
nington's statements are support
ed by our own experience and ob
servation. We are not fanatic dry,
but we are sober, see what we see
and have a clear memory of what
we saw in wet days. The liquor
evil today is only a fraction of what
it was, and to the extent that it has
been reduced prohibition is a suc
cess. It is civilization's mighty ef
fort to cope with one of its worst
evils, a bunglesome effort, a pain
ful effort, but materially effective.
The thirsties do not like i t, of
course, and crave any change that
will make their tipple easily, law
fully and respectably accessible. As
we see it, they put their appetites
ahead of general human welfare,
and prefer liberty for self-indulgence
to the safety that results
Prohibition is bad enough, lack
of it was and will be worse in our
opinion. And we shall vote that

About three years ago, a house
wife began to feel unable to per
form .her usual duties; she con
sulted a physician, who found a
small tumor of the uterus. She
was about 46. The doctor kept her
under observation, saying "I can
remove the thing any time, but will
trv to cure without operation, if
He observed that the tumor
grew rapidly, in spite of his palli
ative measures. The patient grew
dissatisfied, and changed doctors,
The new one paid no attention to
the tumor, and said she had dia
betes, placing her on a strict diet

went on, the patient had the "staff

Rev. Samuel D. Price, D. D.
Make much use of the incidents
in the other Gospels as you pro
ceed through the life of Christ
John, however, has no less than
92 peculiarities and records only
8 of what is stated In the Synop
tics-Matthew, Mark and Luke. We
are especially thankful for the rec
ord of this incident about the Nico
demus conference, which is given
by John only.
Last week special attention was
called to the "Win One" plan of
campaign and here we have an ex
ample of the way it works as Jesus
had this very personal conference
with Nicodemus the Pharisee at
nleht He went then, but not be
cause he was afraid to go during
the day. He was bold enough in
pleading for Jesus before the San
hedrln, Luke 7:45-52.
Nicodemus accorded the title of
Rabbi to Jesus, thereby acknowl
edging that He was a Teacher
worth seeking out. The question
at stake was the problem that Is
still vital In the life of everyone.
How can personal salvation be ob
tained? Jesus lifted the query out
of all material relationship and de
clared that there must be a spirit
ual incarnation as He, the Saviour,
entered vitally into the very heart
life of each individual. Though It
might not be understood mechanic
ally It could be experienced spirit
ually. It Is a miracle and an Illus
tration Is given from Israel's his
tory as that. Incident is made a
prophecy of His own crucifixion
wherein atonement was effected.
As the serpent was lifted up In the
wilderness for the cure of those
who would look to live, even so
must Christ be impaled on the cross

BUDV BUB When in Doubt b Sure By ED KRESSY
MART A NOTSON. Reporter.
In a Washington dispatch of Jan
uary 9, Representative William E.
Hull of Illinois, is reported to have
appeared before the senate manu
factures committee to urge the
passage of a bill legalizing beer.
He contends that the farmer
would sell 66,000,000 bushels of bar
ley the first year for the brewing
of beer, which would increase to
120,000,000 the second year. This
would tend to relieve the surplus
production on the farms. Yea,
verily, you could relieve the sur
plus of the farm products by dump
ing an equal amount into the sea,
and it would be much better to do
so, as no harmful effects would fol
low. He holds out the bait of a tax of
two cents per pint On beer, which
would bring in the enormous sum,
as he said, of $330,000,000. In order
to bring in that amount in taxes it
would be necessary for the Ameri
can people to drink the "enormous"
amount of 2,062,500,000 gallons of
beer, slightly less than 17 gallons
for every man, woman and child in
the country. If this beer retailed
at the modest price of 25 cents per
pint bottle, there would come out
of the pockets of the beer drinkers
the sum of $4,125,000,000. That is a
little less than one sixth of the cost
of the world war to the United
States, and we are groaning under
that load and expect to pass a large
part of It down to our children to
pay. That is not all. Who would
constitute the beer drinkers who
would pay out this enormous sum?
Mostly the laboring classes and the
poor. Who would be benefitted by
this deal? The brewers and deal
ers and the big business fellows
The big business fellows would
have $330,000,000 cut off of their
Hull asserted that it would set
to work 1,000,000 men. That Is it
would set to work that many more
men than are now at work. Then
he makes the statement that it
would put out of business the boot
leggers and all others who work to
keep up the present illicit trade In
booze. And this number must be
no small number, for according to
his assertion there is more drink
ing under prohibition than before,
If so, there must be a large army
of men who are employed In one
way and another in connection with
the bootlegging business, and if
they are all put out of business, it
would seem from his argument that
the number of unemployed would
not be lessened much. The profits
in the business would go to the
brewers and dealers. Hull must
think that the American people are
a bunch of morons to accept such
Ha makes the assertion that
per cent beer, that kind he wants,
legalized, is not intoxicating. He
assumes that all the people who
lived during the good old days have
either forgotten or that "a He well
stuck to is as good as the truth."
And if it were true that such beer
is not intoxicating, It would have
small appeal to the crowd who are
howling about prohibition. They
want liquor with a kick In It.
