SWALLOWING THE CAMEL"
Referring to an editorial in The IN
DEPENDENT of August 15th, under
the above caption, which has just come?
to our notice, we would say that the
asertion that the Woman's Christian
Temperance Union is in a campaign to
prohibit the use of tobacco is untrue
and is only propaganda of the liquor in
terests intended to weaken, the influence
of the W. C. T. U. Read the statement
of the national W. C. T U President,
Miss Anna A. Gordon as it apeared in
the leading newspapers of the state and
country thru the Associated Press:
"NATIONAL PRESIDENT'S STATE

"The sreneral officers of the National
V. omun's Christian Temperance Union

Jubilee Million Dollar Drive is not being

years in tms campaign we nave we
sympathetic cooperation of leading edu
cators and Sunday school workers.
The Woman's Christian Temperance
Union since its organization in 1874 has,
proven its worth and has justified the
confidence and esteem given it by the 1
people of our country. In every cam
paign which it has conducted or in which
it has had a part its work has Deeo
done openly and in the future will be
carried on in the same way.
The effort of the anti-prohibition as
sociation clearly shows their intention
to lessen, if possible, our influence at

As to the work of the W. C. T. U.
against the use of patent medicines with

statement that is made concerning to

Ever since our organization ' we have
waged a peaceful warfare against the
drug habit thru the departments of

has been mainly an educational cam

little more noise about.it. We can say
for ourselves that in the last General
Assembly the state organization was
heard in a strong protest against allow
ing medicines that tend to . intoxication
to be sold in our drugstores. Also we
had apopinted a prominent physician of
the state connected with the Keeley In
stitute in Greensboro, to speak for. the
