But then, as I hinted at the out-
set, my views op the advisability of
prohibition have suffered a complete
change. I am now as firmly for it
as I was utterly against it. The rea-
son, as I hope to show, is that it has
taught Americans to take their liquor]
like gentlemen, like Frenchmen, or
Italians, or Spaniards.

side of the question, there is nothing
to be held against the Eighteen1th
Amendment, except that it represents
a loss of revenue to the government.
It is certainly no harder now to pro-
cure good stuff than it was back in
pre-war days. As for the government;
that is to say, as for the politicians, I
am inclined to let them rack their
heads in solving the country's finan-
cial problem. Had they not been so
subservient to the Anti-Saloon Lea-
gue, they would never have had to
sweat over. elementary arithmetic in
learning how to flim-flam the citizen-
ry to the added extent that they are
doing now. Another such reforn
might make our legislators. almost
Of course liquor costs a great deal
more than it used to, roughly about
300 per cent more, and that, at bot-
tom, is, the reason that Americans are
learning to drink like gentlemen. It
is no innate fineness In them that
causes them to drink without being ob-
scene about it. When a poltroon be-
comes a gentleman it is safe to look
to economical considerations, or some-

spectacle of themselves that they did
in pre-prohibition days, that is, the
vast majority of them are not lying
about the sidewalks or under tables,

As proof of the Great Reform I offer
the results of a recent tour of inves-

the first place, which I shall call
Little Jugo-Slavia, there was good

place, a restaurant in the downtown
