* IN FIN
Seven-Day Campaign f<
for Great Movemei
TN the early stages of the fight for
* national prohibition the states of tho
south took the lead and have main
tained it in all the trying years in
which the dry forces have been locked
.in a death struggle with the forces
behind the liquor traffic in this coun
As a section the south was the first
to clear itself of the stain of the liquor
traffic and has been no small factor
in giving its moral and financial sup
port in the successful battles'which
other sections of the country have
waged against this traffic and which
definitely becomes outlawed in Amer
ica with the constitutional amendment
that becomes operative January 16.
And now the south is called upon to
take the lead in the World Prohibi
tion Campaign under the direc
tion of E. Y. Clarke, of Atlanta, which
comes as a logical and absolutely nec
essary result of the enactment of pro
, hibitfon laws, both state and national,
and the companion measures which
aim at their proper enforcement.
1 "Finish the Job" '
"Let's enforce prohibition and fin
ish the job," has become the slogan
and the watchword of those In charge
of the campaign to enforce prohibition
In this country. The speed and ef
fectiveness with which this work is
done depends almost entirely upon
the spirit and the extent of the co
operation of those who have made
? possible the results already achievod.
The placing of the prohibition laws
and measures for their enforcement
i upon the statute books by no means
finished the Job. There is still a vast
amount of work to be done before
the liquor forces confess defeat and
retire from the field.
While the saloon has been legislat
ed out of business, it is making a de
termined effort to come back, and it
is the purpose of the World Prohibi
tion Campaign to see that lt doesn't

Even the Tnost casual reader of the
news of the day realizes that Prohibi
tion has us hardest fight ahead. The
liquor traffic is waging at the pells,
in the courts and in the public preys
the most desperate and determined
fight in its history.
To those who think America now
is "dry," all that is necessary la a

I ing daily of the death of one or more
persons from drinking wood alcohol
and other dangerous concoctions sold
undor the guise of corn whisky, and

the history ot the country as at the

And this is the very condition that
