- §d by Association Against
Prohibition Amendment.
By th« Associated Press
A membership of more than half a
million ii claimed by the Association
Against the Prohibition Amendment in
the annual report of Henry H. Cur
ran. lta president.
Accession of 114.514 new members
during the year, with 34 Stile units
organized, he said, made It possible for
the organization now to campaign
Aggressively In helf the Union.
The year's et onrmlc dlstrers. he added, j
had served to p.erentua'.e mere thsn
ever before ' th- enormous waste of
revenue in an eap-riment which has
been a scandalous failure for 12 un- i
broken years." j
Curran claimed a number of ad-1
ranees against prohibition, including
Increased support In both Senate and
Mouse; for submitting a repeal resolu
tion to the people; promise of roll calls
on the Issue this session In both cham
bers. congressional victories by repeal
or resubmission candidates in hilf a
dozen districts hitherto considered ‘ un
alterably dry"; demands for resubmLs
aion by more than 100 organizations,
including the American Legion, Vet
erans of Foreign Wars, Bar Association I
and Junior League, and the vote for |
repeal in Finland which left the United (
States the only country In the world
With national prohibition.
The association spent S522.821 during
1931, and took in *534.507 in contribu- ;
tions, he reported.
