Not a Matter of Beer

January 1933
America;1/21/1933, Vol. 48 Issue 16, p375
The article author considers the repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that established the Prohibition of alcohol. He believes that religion and education are the best influences to temper one's use of alcohol. He proposes that only in cases where intemperance becomes a threat to the community should restrictions be made and enforced by that community. He argues that after thirteen years, it has been demonstrated that Prohibition has no place in the U.S. Constitution.
