LIQUOR IN CHILI
Two years ago, when the government
began to draft mem for naval service, a
prominent naval officer came' back from the
ports with certain startling facta regarding
the- condition of the conscripts. The al
coholic excesses prevalent among our race
had produced their disastrous effects up
on the majority of the conscripts, leaving
them with the stigma of physical misery.
.Many years of vice' and intemperance have
made' of the most stalwart and robust de
fenders of our nation useless and incom
petent physical wrecks. We have come to
realize' now, that ne>t only in the regions
of the salt water ports has this degenera
tion become all too evident, but that condi
tions are' similar in the' southern ports.
In Calbucco conscription has brought to
light an amazing state of affairs. Practical
ly all the mem assigned to duty there were
found to be totally unfit for service own
ing to their grave' physical condition.
With such results in evidence we can no
longer remain oblivious to the enormous
number e>f citizens who are being brought
to a state' of wretchedness and incapability
through alcoholism. Our broadcast cam
paign against the abuse of liquor and
against social diseases has been instigat
ed by the' knowledge secured from these dis
closures which we' have just mentioned.
It has been difficult to impress upon the
public the gravity e>f the situation, and as
we: have been unable' to obtain the enact
ment e>w laws and measures which would
serve to protect our future race. The gener
al negligence of the police in many of
the districts, and the equal laxness of the
administrative authorities constitute the
principal causes why the legislative work
has been so ineffectual.
It is not sufficient that legislative meas
ure's be' passed in regard to the control of
bars and the punishment of drunkards. At
tention must be given to the importation,
manufacture, and use of intoxicants. The
social diseases which are undermining the
strength of the' race must be fought with
an adequate sanitary organization and a
competent supervisory board appointed in
every section of the country. We cannot
understand how the men of our govern
ment witness this decay and deterioration
of their people without taking drastic
measures to prevent its continuance. True
patriotism is best shown through efforts
to prepare the future greatness of the Na
tion, and this greatness cannot be reached
if our race continues to deteriorate
through alcoholism and disease.—Christian
