EDISON ON ALCOHOL
THE TRUE AND THE FALSE

Thomas A. Edison, who besides being our greatest in
ventor is probably America's leading sage, took occasion
of his sixty-ninth birthday to solve the liquor problem.
He is against alcohol on principle, because as a
scientist interested in efficiency he has become convinced
from careful observation that it keeps men from doing
their best work. He recognizes the weaknesses and
limitations of the human animal. And so, while he be
lieves in prohibition as the ultimate goal, and believes that
the whole world is swinging toward it, he wouldn't try to
force matters by harsh measures. Pie would taper off
"You can't take alcohol away from men all at once,"
he says, "if you do, he'll resent it. Beer has about 4 per
cent alcohol. Cut the percentage to 2 or 1 3-4 per cent.
Let men drink that for twenty years, and then cut it down
to 1 per cent. Cut out all whiskey, and strong alcoholic
drinks at once."
Edison's plan is based on the theory that every man's

Sumpter News, first published 13 years
ago by F. J. Hallock & Co., says: "in
looking through the columns of that

in the boast that the American is the

Of its construction the Register says:
"The old house was solidly built, as

tearing it down thnt the sills, about
a foot -square, had been hewn instead
of sawed, and they were in a good state
of preservation. ' '
