The drunkard classic melodramas spice a Saloon arguments part ii of a 2-part series on the bag or bar Battle by Mary Jane Bode daily news Austin Bureau austins a father dear father come Home with me now. A the clock in the Steeple strikes the poignant Call of the child outside the Saloon door in the old melodrama classic Quot the drunkard a comes to mind As you listen to arguments against proposed constitutional amendment no. 2-�?orepeal of the prohibition against open saloons which texans will vote on nov. 3. The argument Doest hang on where father will be when the clock in the Steeple strikes one but whether he will be in worse condition if amendment no. 2 is approved than he would be in if it failed. Opponents of the proposition mainly through an organization caled a texans who care a claim he will have consumed More alcohol will be More Likely to become an alcoholic and will be a potential traffic Hazard. A save a life vote no a the bumper stickers warn. Texas is one of Only six states in the Union the others Are Kansas Oklahoma West Virginia and the Carolinas which prohibits the open Sale of mixed Bever Ages made with distilled spirits. Another 34 brought Back open bars in 1935 when prohibition was repealed. Ten states Mississippi Idaho Washington Iowa. Oregon Georgia Tennessee Utah Arkansas and Virginia have adopted mixed drink Laws since 1945. Tell texans for enforceable liquor Laws claims that the increases in per capita consumption in the to newest liquor by the drink states were slight mainly due to the increased tourism that coincided with open bar experience. And they say the 10-state per capita average consumption is less than the National average of 1.8 Gallons per year of Dis tilled spirits. Texans who care claim that consumption in Iowa increased sharply. The pro Side ties that to Iowa a big boost in tourism and says Iowa a per capita consumption is Only 1.19 Gallons per year about two drinks a wee compared to the 1.8-gallon National average and the per capita rate in Texas which has 114 a wholly dry counties of i Gallons per year per person. A recent Gallup poll put the percentage of texans who drink regularly or occasionally at the same level of the National percentage 66 percent of the adult population. And this states rate of alcoholism is the same As the National rate about 7 percent of those who drink. A Rutgers University Center on the study of alcoholism study indicated that the introduction of Quot open Saloon Laws has had no effect on the rate of alcoholism in the affected states. A texans who care doubtless Are seriously concerned about an increase in traffic fatalities since National and state studies on automobile accidents have shown that a Large percentage of the Drivers involved had partaken of alcohol. But Tell will Tell you that statistics show that Beer drinkers Are As susceptible to alcoholism As other Imbi Bers and observe that state Hospital admissions of alcoholics Mcwate that the too counties with the highest rate of admissions include 90 a a dry counties. Back to Iowa. Tell argues that traffic fatalities have decreased 18 percent since that state went wet All the Way. Getting Down to Bare facts approval of amendment no. 2 merely would remove the prohibition against a open saloons and authorize the legislature to establish Laws for the regulation of Sale of mixed drinks while preserving the local option method. In All probability father would be just As a a wet or a a dry when the clock in the Steeple struck one As he would today
