Just haven't got the right soil, I "Well, I think you're wise, John...no use keeping on trying things you know won't work. Just like prohibition. State-wide pro- hibition has been tried in this country seventy-two times in the last ninety years. It has been adopted forty-seven times in the past thirty-three years and discarded everywhere except in three states. Same thing was tried in eight provinces in Canada and in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia but it was an admitted failure and universally abandoned. "The reason is prohibition does not prohibit. All you get is bootleg liquor in- stead of legal liquor, plus no end of crime and corruption." TWj ulitrliumml iffmsmd (.'mliunci cf AkMic Bartcsi liutuilnri. Inc. Virginia is visiting Mr. and Mrs R.

L Students Buy in Bonds Abraham Lincoln high school students accounted for the pur- chase of worth 'of war bonds and stamps during the sem- ester just closed, according to an announcement by Mrs. Agnes White, Junior Red Cross sponsor at at the school.

This has entitled the school to fly tho United States treasury flag.
