Over 400 million dollars in taxes every

3,000,000 farm acres of produce.
The brewing industry would like to pre
serve for itself and the people the many

five years. Brewers everywhere realize that
this is a question bound up with the proper
distribution of their mild and wholesome
beverage through retail outlets whose char

Obviously, the brewers can enforce no laws.
But they can and will cooperate with
the local law-enforcement authorities. They
will cooperate with every group friend or
