Florence Morning News (Newspaper) - October 3, 1973, Florence, South CarolinaMine has lightning in does Dowd 1s87-1970 James a. Rogers editor Joe b. Kickenbacker a Miliny editor Dew James As social a editor Richard g. Moisio inc my Aniio wednesday october 1973 signs of Temperance Kolember i he great mini in talc Cle Hiil supporters of the legislation to License Reslau nuts. Lounges and other qualifying establishments in South Carolina to sell liquor in bottles containing two ounces or less depicted it As a Temperance measure. Opponents argued just the reverse. Well the first hard evidence is in and As inconclusive As it is it docs indeed show that hard liquor consumption in South Carolina had declined during the first six months of the mini bottle system. Since the system went into effect March 2s. The contents of More than four million mini hot the have been consumed in South Carolina and the state a collected approximately is million in mini Botlic taxes. But that s Only about half of what was anticipated. Mini hot tie revenues Are fail ing to make up the 11 per cent drop in liquor store sales even though min bottles Are taxed five limes As heavily Accord ing to the state tax commis Sion. At this Point state officials Are unable to measure the drop in liquor consumption in Gal Lons and quarts but they Are certain based on Revenue receipts that South carolinians Are drinking less. Two other indications thai the mini Boule is having a mod craving wheel on to Viking Hab ils in South Carolina Are reflected in traffic statistics. I Runk driving arrests de creased slightly during the firs i. Half of 1973 from the comparable period in 1972 from to the mini Bollte system was in Force Dur ing Only half of this statistical period however. During the period traffic deaths declined 14 per cent and according to gov. West breathalyzer tests Over All showed lower consumption Levels. This of course does not add up to conclusive proof that the mini Boulle is All thai proponents promised. Hut clearly South Carolina has a More sen sible and realistic system of liquor management than it did during the abominable Brown bagging Experiment. The Early signs Are hat drink ers Are drinking less for two reasons 1 the Cost of mini is sufficiently High to discourage heavy drinking and i2 the mini Ollie permits drink ers to have a drink without buy ing a Large bottle and succumb ing to the temptation to drink it All. The revamped liquor Laws have also created an Atmos phere in which it is much less tempting to Wink at the Law in the fashion hat has been More or less traditional in Charleston and some other areas. The penalties for violating liquor Laws Are much stiffer and enforce ment of the Law is much simplified. More Lime and statistics will required to develop a re liable measure of the Tom per Unce Impact of the in if Oculi system. But the Early readings strongly suggest hat the peo ple were not misled they were urged to vote for lie mini bottle for thai reason. W. H. Auden s peaceful death death came to poet w. H. A clan Over the weekend the Way he said he would prefer in. The nicest Way i think would he a a curl he said. It s cheap and it s Quick when life is becoming a Bur Den you should let it he had said the Only thing he dreaded was to die an old Man from a lingering illness. Auden died of an apparent heart attack in a hotel in Vienna. Austria. It was the swill death he had hoped for. Only hours before he had Given a Lee lure to the austrian society for literature lie was Ufi and widely regarded As the Foremost Liv ing English language poet. Last year the British born poet returned to England to be at Oxford University where lie himself was schooled after being More or less settled permanently in the United Stales for years. It was a return to Mother England for a self styled exile. Auden came to the United slates As an expatriate in id id be cause of disaffection Wilh Brit ish policies toward nazi Ger Many. As a Young Man who made his Mark Early As a poet he was possessed of a school boy s High spirits. In the he seemed to make a deliberate cult of obscurity writing for a Small group of specialists and maintaining an air of distinct superiority toward the general Public. He travelled broadly exploring inc human condition beyond the comfortable upper Middle class English background from which he sprang during the 1926 British labor strike he drove a hits for the labor unionists cause. He was briefly a passionate marxist. In 1937, he went to Spain and served As an ambulance Driver on the Side of the Spanish loyalists which had been toppled by Gen. Francisco Franco. By the time Auden had made up his mind to abandon King land just before world War ii Bis to cry had undergone a transition lie had become More of a Public Man and was deliberately writing poetry for the general Public nol just for a handful of specialists. His a years in he i filed slates were productive ones. He was on the faculties of Sev eral colleges and universities and lectured widely. In Laler years Auden affected a cult of . His hair seems permanently Well mussed. His face became superbly lined Wilh wrinkles. A baggy Suil that looked overslept in be came the familiar uniform he wore As he lectured. Of him self the Pool said the. Way he dresses reveals an angry baby howling to be except for those passionate Youthful years Auden never seemed to be very angry How Ever. By his own account he had a childhood full of love and goo i things to of his return to England he said Why should t i spend my Sec Ond childhood in the country where i spent a first child almost to his own astonish ment Auden came to he was a Happy Man. Whal More can a moral ask than to come to Hal realization to have a productive and eventful life and to die peacefully in bed-4gnew unfair and unethical Washin Tux let s go the facts nut on the table in the Agnew affair before rampaging la Quick conclusions. He has not been found guilty of anything. New branded these allegations As lies and added by Roscoe Drummond the Public accusations have been Many the Public has been Zero. Lie has been subjected to unfair trial by unfair leaks and has Al ready been smeared by unsupported charges Uncil ideally leaked by prosecutors and Unel Liichi y publicized by lie Media. Lie already been penalized in Advance of evidence in Advance of indictment in Advance of conviction so that because of All this pure disc Ful publicity Bis future in National politics has been stunted if nut entirely wiped out. Fine a Iii Agnew editorial in Washington contends Ilia die unproved allegations have already Dune so much damage to Agnew Oliai in is ins duly i in mus the obligation s imposed upon a vice i resident de Mand More of him than simply Lii Al he be Innoce til of crime be must noun appear in be guilty no since no Man in Public Lile can prevent his opponents from peddling and and in proved allegations against him allegations which make him appear to lie guilty if i outdoing this is Range thesis makes guilty by leak and allegation an aulos Nazic killer. This shows the unfairness Wilh which the Agnew affair has already been handled. I am not assuming to judge the the vice president is innocent or Guilly. I Don l know and probably Inie but Spiro Agnew innit of knows whether he is Gully or innocent. H should go Inlo the record How Ever Thiol some of the Vic presi Dent s Legal Maneu vers and those of his counsel raise serious questions which will cause Many to wonder Lial Agnew is living to accomplish. When Ilii was for Mally notified by the All Iuey Gen eral Hal be or ing investigated by Ibel Mcd Stales allot Uey in Lial Limore for possible bribery conspiracy extortion Ami lax evasion a i have Confidence in the Crin Justice system of the l filed Stales .1 am equally confident my inno Cence will lie thai Cerli Finly suggested indeed in was unequivocal hat Agnew believed thai lie was subject to the judicial process and thai lie could properly and safely seek his vindication through the judicial process. His lawyers have either snarled Agnew or Agnew has persuaded his lawyers Thiol be can t Trust trial by jury and Hal. Anyway. In is to indict a vice president. Instead the vice president asks the House of to Lake Over from the courts and be investigator judge and jury. Thus the vice turns in the political rather than the judicial process and the democratic Leader ship no the House of has already taken a substantially political decision. In does no want any part of Siart Rug impeachment proceedings. It does nol accept at Point. The theory thai a vice presi Dent can be indicted Only Afler in peach Mon. Anil in also affirms Hal in dues nol wish to intervene in Mai lers before the the vice president gave As his stated reason for nol wanting to Irusle his Case to the grand jury that so much Adverse publicity would make in impossible in gel i fair verdict.
