DON'T BE TRICKED INTO
The initiative measure on your November 7th ballot to outlaw the "sale of pro
motively advertised alcoholic beverages" is one of the most deceptive measures
ever placed before Oregon's voting public. This measure cannot stop advertising
of alcoholic beverages originating outside of Oregon... but it will bring back Pro
hibition... Prohibition and all its evils bootleggers, racketeers, phoney brands
and bribed officials. No thinking citizen wants these things in Oregon.
