State's Prohibition Law
Raleigh, Dec. 20.—<AP)—Repeal or
modification of North Carolina's bone
dry Turlington act, a more stringent
prohibition law than the national
statute, appears slated to have its hey
dey In the 1933 General Assembly.
Results of an Associated Press poll
of the 179 members of the incoming
legislature, with only 34 members re
plying. indicate that sentiment for
repeal or modification of the dry law
Is strong, .but the percentage of
membership quoted was too small for
any definite trend to be determined.
Only one legislator, a veteran of
previous sessions, from the eastern
part of the State, definitely listed
himself opposed to any changes In
the Turlington act.
