Bootleggers are still on the 3oD however, although their work is not as much in evidence as it was it was easy to get liquor in pose of the. nation's supply in rec- ord time. With the absence of booze some are taking to cocaine and morphine for. inspiration and stimulation. Every day a few more of the regular imbibers come in load-. ed with dope in place of their fav- orite drink, as liquor becomes more scarce.
