ANOTHER BLOW TO LIQUOR
SALES.
Los Anodes seems to be ninn in
for novel liquor n gulatious. A went
news item reports that the police mm
mission, tinder leadership of tho may
or, has put into effect a rul provid
ing that hereafter no civilian can be
served with intoxicating drink in any
liquor establishments, including the
wholesale liquor houses, cafes, clubs,
saloons or other places whore lhiiiorr
are dispensed if there is an American
HOldier, sailor or marine present in
uniform.
ThiH ruling was found necessary ''?
caiiBO civilians were buying drinkr
and passing theui on to uniformed
men, thus technically evading the pro
hiibtion axainst selling 'nioxlcants to
soldiers or sailors.
It is further explained that any act
that may be construed us ;t Mibter
fuKe to violate this resolution will !
cause for the revocation 'of a license.
It is safe to prophesy that a uniform
darkening the entrance to any place
where liquor is ordinarily sold will b.
welcomed with tempered joy by all
but 'bone-dry" enthusiasts. It miht
be a Rood prohibition move to station
a Boldler or sailor in every liquor-dispensing
place and thus effectively
stop all liquor sales. Or will the un!
Tormd men take pity on Los Angeles
civilians and keep to the soda foun
tains and nther arid spots?
