Celebration Is Greatest Since Armistice;
Downtown Streets Are Jammed in
Frenzied Beer Welcome.
Hu I nitrd /Ve*
MILWAUKEE, Wis., April 7.—The old beer that made Milwaukee
famous flowed again today in a celebration pronounced the greatest since
signing of the Armistice.
Breweries of Juneau avenue were stormed by thousands of shouting,
hilarious persons.
At the Miller brewery, where beer was passed out free, thirsty celebra
tors seized empty tomato cans, discarded bottles or whatever other con
tainers they could find, and rushed up to the flowing spigots.
Wisconsin avenue, Milwaukee’s
wide thoroughfare, was jammed.
•The throngs extended up to the
brewery area, where the noise and
excitement reached a frenzied
The shifting, shouting crowds de
layed beer trucks as they started
for cases and taverns.
Crowds Storm Storehouse
Policemen on motorcycles and in
squad cars, with sirens screaming,
cleared a path for the trucks piled
to the peak with cases and kegs.
At a tavern a few blocks from the
Pabst Brewery, beer was flowing
at 12:09. A few minutes later it
was available at nearly all down
town cases.
At one brewery a man rushed
from the bottling room carrying a
full case. He stopped on a loading
platform, and tossed the bottles to
the crowd. Pandemonium prevailed
for a moment as spectators scram
bled madly for the bottles.
At another brewery, a block
away, crowds stormed the store
house and seized a half-dozen cases.
Police squads had difficulty in re
storing any semblance of order.
Bigger Than Expected
At the Pabst brewery, German
throngs gathered, carrying currency
in their hands. They battled their
way up to the storerooms, shoul
dered cases of beer and hurried
On Wisconsin avenue, celebrators
stood on tops of automobiles sing
ing “Sweet Adeline’’ and other
songs familiar in beer drinking
ing circles.
The Milwaukee celebration, which
had been discouraged by city offi
cials, surpassed expectations even
of brewers themselves.
City authorities had urged citi
zens to wait, until after Lent to
celebrate, but virtually the entire
downtown section was carried away
by the spontaneity of the event.
Prepare to Transport Beverage by
Plane From AVet States.
By L'nitrd Pro*
FORT WORTH, Tex., April 7.
Bootleggers plan to have beer in
Texas if the state legislature fails
to legalize the beverage.
Liquor dealers who heretofore
have specialized in rum and whisky
running across the Mexican border,
will bid for the summer trade with
light wines and beer transported by
plane from the nearest “wet” state,
perhaps Oklahoma.
If the state ban on beer is not
lifted, prices probably will average
20 cents a glass, dealers say.
The government's radio talks on
common household problems, pre
pared in the bureau of home eco
nomics, are broadcast in Hawaii in
both English and Japanese.

Achievement of the results recorded above, notwithstanding extremely
adverse business conditions, reflects outstanding credit upon the officers
and employes. The stockholders and bondholders can cooperate with them
in a most effective way and promote our mutual interests by continuing
their own efforts to secure additional passenger and freight traffic for the
