B UT LITTLE reflection is necessary
to see that "wet",sentiment may
be divided into two parts. One of these has as its
goal the repeal of the eighteenth amendment. The
other desires legislation or judicial interpretation,
or both, merely to bring back beer.
Most of those who merely desire beer would
not be averse to repeal. Many of them will even
clamor for repeal as long as no provision for
egal beer IS made. OQn the other hand, if and
when beer IS legal, they will cease further agita-
tion. Having what they want, they will obviously
withdraw their support from any movement seek-
ng to provide them with something they don't
In addition to the group that sincerely wishes
beer, there are also strata in the wet sentiment
that are undoubtedly advocating repeal more for
the thrill of seeking reform than from a real de-
sire, founded in experience, for alcoholic bever-
ages. These strata, which to a large extent make
up the official and unofficial "crusading" groups,
are at present probably wielding a tremendous in-
fluence in bringing the country to its former wet
,tatus. It is our contention that these strata will
aIso withdraw effective support from repeal agi-
tation if beer is legalized.
Now it is a foregone conclusion that, if the
eighteenth amendment is to be repealed, the
iovement must have the active support of every
vet-minded person in the country.
Hence if beer is legalized, thus satisfying much}
:f the wet sentiment, the movement for repeal1
mnust suffer from a large and critically important
loss of support.
We feel, in fact, that it would be safe to predict
that, if beer is legalized during the present session
of Congress, the cause of repeal will suffer to such
an extent that the eighteenth amendment will
stay on the books for a period of time to be meas-
ured in years.
It is not improbable that Mr. Garner wam
prompted by this logic when he attempted, on the
first day of the session, to "railroad through" hi>
repeal resolution. As we have already pointed out
he made the tactless blunder of going at the
matter with such high-handed swiftness that suf-
ficient votes were alienated to defeat him,
