WHAT CAN WE DO TO FI R
THER LAW ENFORCEMENT?
In an address by Pr. Wilbur Colvin,
vice-president of Cox College, on “Law
Observance and Law Euforeentent.’
which appeared in a recent issue of
the Georgia Bulletin, the state \V. C.
T. C. paper, he reviews the prohibition
situation and calls attention to the
fact that “through propaganda of re
markable subtlety and shrewdness the
masses of the people are being steadily
deceived and decoyed as to ttLe work
ings and results of the prohibition
amendment and the enforcement regu
lations under it.”
Commenting upon the pernicious ac
tivities of the wets, the growing, dis
regard for law and other evils that
threaten our government. Pr. Colvin
asks. “What can we do?” and then
|
proceeds to answer his own question:
“Give every help and encourage
ment to all officials who are for law
enforcement, and turn out of office as
quickly as possible any who seem to
wish to he popular with the criminal
class.
“Insist that prison terms and no:
fines be the penalty for violation of
most laws, especially the prohibition
laws. And the fee system for paying
court officials should be utterly
abolished.
"Arouse anil instruct the peoplec on
eerning tlie real condition of affairs
as to disregard for law, and the cer
tain consequences. And especially
train up the children in the way in
which they should go. Train them—
don't simply let them grow op. Weeds
just grow up: cotton and corn must
ho cultivated.
"The time is at hand when parents
and teachers and publicists and states
men all must get down to sober, solid,
God-fearing thinking and acting. Let
us teach that right must he the rule
of action because it is right—for con
science sake. We must re-establish
urivate life, domestic concerns and
state affairs upon the firm foundation
of the Hock of Ages. To fear God and
keep His commandments is the funda
mental duty of mankind
"As a final word. let me exhort you
as good, loyal citizens of this great
Republic, to lose no opportunity to
agitate, educate and arouse on this
great, vital issue of making tlrs a ;
law-abiding and God fearing nation. I
For tlie nation and kingdom that will
not serve Thee shall perish: yea. those ,
uat'ons shall be utterly wasted.'"

A bachelor is only half a man. and
after marriage lie ain't even that.
A good many self made men made I
an awful mistake in not consulting an ;
