Think of your own boy. Is he

In n saloon, or will he go to the
Ho la c. thousand times more likely
. Ho la. a thousand times fore likely
to take- his first drink in the back
room of tho Prohibition drug store

seek the open saloon
This is, obvious to any mun who has
taken the trouble to personally fol
low tho devious trail of practical Pro
hlbltlon in theoretically Prohibition
Wo also find It confirmed by the re
port on tho liquor problem endorsed
by such men as President Kllott and
Seth Low. This report, referring to
tho failure of Prohibition in Iowa,
says: "Rut it soon appeared that the
drug storo was even harder tq regu
late than the saloon, and that men
would drink at the drug storo who
would not, under a license system,
hao drunk at a public bar."
That boy Is far sufer In a commun

laws that arc effcctlvo and responsive
to public sentiment, than ho is In the

in Iowa, of which the same report
