FINDS NORWICH DEATH RATE
DROPS III YEARS OF DRY LAW
In the second of special articles upon:
Norwich, written- alter a-study of the
field here and published in the American.
Issue, the ; Anti-Saloon league ' national
organ, figures of the death late in years
under and before; prohibition are com
pared, reaching the conclusion that , the
death rate has dropped-with the coming
m or ary law. - : 1 r , '
By special arrangement. The Bulletin
publishes in advance the following article
which will appear in next week's number
of the American Issue: . . . ,
"Where once. In the 'food, old dava.'
when the saloons were oien.- and jails.
insane asylums, . almshouses and graves
all were open in the same degree as the
saloon where once . five hearses - roqved
in siow processionar. to Norwich ceme
teries, today only four hearses are in
the funeral cortege. The death rate has
been cut since the advent of prohibition to
the degree that five persona per thou
sand would have to die where four actu
ally die this year to maintain the rate set
in tne "wet year, 1917. That year, how
ever, was not the record year for deaths
in Norwich. It IS chosen Jor an Illustra
tion bccwl'lt is a fair year and not an
abnormally high one. The year 1918 was
of -course the influenza year.-with a death
rate of 28.4; 1915. also a. Vet' year, had
a death rate of 19.7, but 1917. the last
normal year y;hich was 'wet,' had a rate
of 19.1. The rate for 1922, if the same
proportion of deaths prevails for the full
12 months as in the first eight months,
will be 15.1.
"This means that out of every thou
sand persons In the town Norwich four
persons who were doomed to death by
conditions prevailing under a license re
gime ace reprieved by prohibition.
"The death rate in 1922 if no epidemic
occurs to increase the present proportion
will be the lowest in 20 years. The
average rate for Norwich town In the
years from 1901 to 1905, Inclusive, was
16.9. . In the next fire years the rate de
creased to 16.6 per thousand of popula
tion. From this year the rate steadily in
creased, with one or two exceptions.
The five years from 1911 to 1915 had
an average rate of 17.11. The succeeding
years, with their rates, follows
1916 1917 1918 1919 1920 1921 1922
18.1 19.1 26.4 17.7 19.3 16.5 15.1
"The 1922 rate is based on the eight
month period, extended to cover a full 12
months.
"These figures may seem dry but they
are like fossils in the rocks, each carrying
a perfectly legible story to the one who
holds the key. The first three years in
the table above are all 'et' years The
rate was very high. It was far above the
average rate for the state of Connecticut
as 'a whole. Health expert in many
cities had pointed out' that besides deaths
listed officially as due to alcoholism there
were a large number of preventable
deaths lor which alcohol was to blame.
To this was attributed the high death
rate In urlran communities as opposed to
rural sections. So far as published rec
ords go, however, no one in Norwich
seemed to have been disturbed by this
mounting death rate. No doubt in home
after home someone said. 'The Lord gave
and tlio Ijord hath taken away,' when the
Lord didn t have anything to do with It,

"During these years beer and whiskey
were selling at the usual price In Nor
wich. But the usual price didn t tell the
whole story. To the five cents for beer
or the ten cents for whiskey, no one add
ed the funeral bill of the dead from alco
hol; nor the. hospital expenses of the
wounded from John Barleycorn-; nor the
pension for the almshouse and the char
ity fund for the disabled of the saloon.
Then came 1919. This was the year
in which, on July 1, wartime prohibition
became effective. It was a half dry and
a half wet year. The death rate drops
just as the unheeded Cassandraa of pro
hibition had always prophesied dropped
from' 19.1 in 1917: (ignoring the abnor
mal rate In the 'wet influenza, year 1918)
to 17-1. The salooni were closed. AH the
usual channels whereby Intoxicants were
obtained were gone. ;
"The next year saw the Volstead act
become effective In January. This gave
federal officers power to act but the local
police lacked authority. Illicit selling de
veloped an organization- in Nprwich as
elsewhere, and registered its effect on the
delicate meter of the vital statistics. The
mortality rate climbed back again to the
highest point it had reached since 1915
and registered 19.3 deaths per thousand.
It was T good yearvfor those who be
lieved in -personal liberty' provided they
were in the undertaking business.
1921. saw an -improvement. The dif
ficulty of obtaining drinkable intoxicants,
the wholesome fear of blindness or death
from wood alcohol, the unwillingness, of
the average man to take all the trouble,
undergo the risks and pay the exorbitant
prices demanded, all reduced the con
sumption of alcoholic Beverages in js or
wich in this year. Added to this, was
the effect of the passage of the state en
forcement act, which placed a much-
needed weapon in the kands of the police.
In the table above you can read all this
story. The death rate leu once more
with an increased degree of enforcement
to 16.5.
The illicit dealers in liquor had plenty
of time in which to develop their system.
Sources of supply, mf ans of transporta
tion and methods of distribution had been
developed by them increasingly from the
day when wartime prohibition arnvea.
Such , systems require time to develop.
The police in; Norwich as elsewhere de--
velop in turn their system. This also re
quires time. With successive months, the
police system becomes increasingly ei
feetive. Backed by the - support of the
decent and law-abiding element of the
community" it ultimately controls the sit
uation. It was bo in Norwich. This, too,
is written in the table above.
"In the current year the death, rate fell
again to a figure which constitutes a rec
ord. for the community. In the first eight
months of this year there have been 310
deaths. Should the same ratio prevail, for
the balance of the'ear, the death rate
for 1922 will be 15.1.
"Prohibition is not compile in Norwich
any more than elsewhere. It has become
more effective each year, but full enforce
ment has not yet been obtained. Drunk
enness has tlecreased greatly,- but there
are still some avenues by which stroni
drink reaches both town and city. With
the closing of these sewers of death, the
death rate will drop still more.
WOMAN FATALLY BURNED

Mrs. William Kamenekicz- was burned
at her home on a farm in Listoon Friday
morning and died at the Eackus hoapi
tal here at 2.15 in the afternoon.' Her

GAVE TALK OS GARDENS
BEFORE WOMAN'S GUILD
- The Woman's Guild of the United Con
gregational church held the opening
meeting of the season Friday afternoon
at 3 o'clock in the Community house,
when members and their friends had
the pleasure of listening to Miss Amy
Cogswell, principal of the Lowthorpe
School of Horticulture. Groton, Mass.

With . the Small Place," was treated in
a most practical and helpful manner,
calculated to inspire the humblest , ama
teur. The day of vast gardens is past,

behalf of small retired gardens with the
beauty, rest and happiness which may
be found In planning for and working
in them. - .

served by the social activities depart
ment, Mrs. Walter F.. Lester and Mrs.
Archibald Mitchell, Jr., presiding at the
table.
, The regular trasines meeting, at which
the president, Mrs. Charles Tyler Bard,
presided, was abridged In order ' to al

the Missions department in progress at
