Figures Show
Americans Are
Thirstier Now
Uncle Sam Is Taking In A
Greater Revenue Than
Before Prohibition
WASHIIN1GTON, May 7. - P
America's thirst for legal "hard lik-
ker" -if tax figures tell the story cor-
rectly -has grown up since pre-pro-
hibition cdays.
Beer consumption, by the same
token, is running about 50 per cent
behind.
In 1917, the United States consump-
tion of whisky, rum, gin and brandy
was 96,250,000 gallons, the 1916 total
was 80,720,000 gallons, while in 1918
there was a drop to 61,980,000 gallons.
If liquor production taxes are any
indication -and most distilleries are
running full blast to fill the demand
--America is now drinking domestic
products at the rate of 85,000,000
gallons annually. This does not in-
clude imports, which for the first
quarter of 1934 were 3,640,000 gallons.
Continuation of these rates
throughout the year would push dis-
tilled spirits consumption above 100,-
000,000. Officials doubt, however, that
the drinking speed of early repeal
months will continue.
One year of legal beer paid the gov-
ernment a $138,547,000 production
tax. Most was at a $5 a barrel rate,
ivhich would indicate 27,709,500 bar-
rels. In 1917 the beer consumption was
60,790,000 barrels, dropping in 1918
to 50,192,000 barrels.'
The tax rate of before-prohibition
were different from the present. In
1917 the liquor production tax was
$1.10 a gallon. Today's is $2. Beer in
1917 was taxed $1.50 a barrel. The
levy today is $5.

Wisconsin Dean Would Omit
Grading Systems, Probations

(By Intercollegiate Press)
MADISON, Wis., May 7. - If Scott
H. Goodnight, dean of men at the
University of Wisconsin, had his way
about it, the mocern college and

not be much better off in our col
leges if we scrapped a large part of
our machinery, raised the pass mark
to something approaching a high C

three semesters, and let the realiza-

mother that sonny boy had spent a
couple of thousand dollars without
making any perceptible progress to-
ward a degree, and I don't believe the
college would have to do much about
it.
"But I suppose it is useless to hope
for anything of that sort. We appear
inevitably committed to the molly-

The rigid supervision of students in

Notification of the acceptance of

secretary to the principal of the
school. Those seeking admittance to

consin has established a reputation
for extreme liberal views.
"There is too much advising and
counselling, too many intelligence
tests, executive committees, scholastic
chairmen, junior and senior deans.
"We do too much for our students.
I believe they would get a better
discipline and attain a better training
if we weren't so constantly on the
alert to protect them from their own
mistakes.
"We carry paternalism to too great
lengths. And the discouraging factor
is that the further we go the more
is expected of us and the more we are
;blamed for what we don't accomplish."
Ne,,w Students'
Magazine Will.
'BePublished
The Literary Workshop, first print-
ed literary magazine devoted exclu-
sively to the writings of students in
colleges and universities throughout
the United States, will make its in-
itial appearance this week, according
to an announcement from the pub-
lishers.
The magazine will contain a selec-
tion of short stories, feature articles,
poetry, and reviews, chosen from
manuscripts submitted by students in
miore than 50 schools.
Leading authorities will criticize the
contents of each issue in accordance
with the publication's aim of being an
aid to professors and students in the
assimilation of writing technique, ac-
cording to Edward A. Sand, of the
editorial board of The Literary Work-
shop.
Commenting on the new magazine,
Prof. Bennett Weaver of the English
department said that he believed it
would prove helpful to the develop-
ment of student writings since it will
offer one of the few opportunities for
young writers to see their work pub-
lished.
