Kntered'at the Leonard to' class matter under the Leonard town, Md., Thi TOBACCO’S FOES I LOSING GROUND jCanvass of 7,847 Editors Shows L 7,393 Communities Against [_• Abolishing Weed. lahtis lose three states. -'-Utah, Under Mormon Influence, Only Commonwealth to Adopt Prohlbl- / lion Measure During Year. "Is tobacco going to hnve Its scalp added te tba belt of the prohibitionist feaalde that of the lamented but ns yS Bit altogether late alcohol?" is the question asked by Garret Smith In an article in the current. Issue of LssUW* Magazine." Tlie writer reaches the conclusion thnt while there has been Increased agitation and legislative activity on tUs subject of tobacco following the aaeoaaa of the drive for prohibition of liquor the efforts of reformers seek ing to abolish tobacco have no general •uppsrt, Xfalg opinion Is based on the ratalta of the questionnaires on the subject Mot oat to newspaper editors ■of the gountry by the Press Service Company of New York City. : The questions asked were; . (1) Do you favor the enactment of lows prohibiting the personal use of tobacco by adults? (2) Xu your judgment does the gen eral sentiment of your community favor such legislation? (8) la the use of tobacco personal ly objectionable to you? No arguments accompanied the ques tions and from their form It was im possible for any editor to determine the attitude of the questioners. Out of 12,518 editors questioned, 7,847 replied according to the summary given. These editors, it Is estimated, represent a combined circulation of 21370,040. Of the 7347 editors reply ing, 7303, or 06 per cent, represent public sentiment In their communities as opposed to anti-tobacco legislation. Only 200 editors, or 8 per cent of these replying believed there was any considerable sentiment favorable to tobacco prohibition. There were 174, •r 2 per cent, in doubt, while 20 foiled to record their judgment. Editors’ Judgment Unbiased “It la of special Interest to note that 009 editors In answering the first question, personally favored such legislation, although only 200 of them reported that public opinion also fa vored the prohibition of tobacco —on indication of the conscientious effort made by the editors to distinguish pub lic opinion from their own personal opinions," the article continues. “Sim highest percentage of replies reporting public opinion favorable to prohibition of tobacco came from Utah, where 42 per cent of the editors thought the public were for such a f movement Utah is the only state which has since adopted an anti cigarette law. The result was fore cast by several of the editors who Jp stated that the Influence of the Mor mon Ohurcb was against tobacco. The Mormon Church is also strong In Idaho, which it the other atnto where the use •f tobacco was recently prohibited, bnt the governor has signed the bill just paused. In which the prohibitory legislation is repealed. In this state 89 per cent of the editors estimate sentiment in their communities ns against tobacco prohibition, which, nevertheless, is 0 |>or cent below the average reported opposition, "The legislature of Tennessee some weeks ago passed and the governor has signed a bill repealing the nntl elgaratte law of thnt state. The ques ttouualrc showed 03 per cent of Its •Ottora believed the public against anti-tobacco legislation. The legisla ture of Arkansas lias also passed a htll repealing its untl-clgaretlo law. In this state 94 per cent of the editors* reported against tobacco prohibition. AHxona's Practical Joke “A bill. Introduced In the current session of the legislature of Arizona te prohibit smoking In public dining rooms and oilier public places, was first amended to prohibit the consump tion in public of peanuts, chewing gum, ten and coffee and then defeated by the senate. The questionnaire returns from that state were 02 jier cent 'no.' "In lowa where the 'no’s' were 95 per cent a bill to repeal the nntl clgarette law has been passed and signed by the governor. "A bill to repeal the nntl-clgnrctte law in Kansas, with 80 per cent ‘no’s.’ is receiving the attention of its legis lature. Last year a petition for a referendum In Oregon to prohibit the use of tobacco failed of sufficient sig natures to bring the question to g vote, and 05 per cent of the editors declare their public against legislation. In Oklahoma nn anti-cigarette bill has Vbeen reported N unfavorably In the bouse. The editors of thnt state re ported 04 per cent against Its public support. “Outside of Utah, where Mormon Influence predominates,” the article concludes, “the nntl-tobncco move ment appears, ns In the ons© of Ten nessee, Arkansas and lowa, to be los ing ground and Is not to any consid erable extent supported by the peo ple.” The friends of tobacco feel particu larly elated over this showing, Inns m much as 1020-21 was a maximum year In legislative circles with 42 state leg iataros In session and the tobacco sub ject received nn unusual amount of , consideration.
