W.C.T.U. ASK DRY LAW FOR CAMPS
Grand Rapids, Mich., Sept. 2 –
Legislation prohibiting sale of liquor in and near Army camps to give the military forces “the protection which they had in 1917” was demanded today by the 67th annual convention of the Woman’s Christian Temperance Movement.
The WCTU also asked Congress to pass laws requiring every bottle of “alcoholic beverage” to bear the label “poison” and barring advertising of all such beverages:
…in newspapers, periodicals, on billboards and over the radio.
The dry leaders commended Congressional passage of the May bill to eliminate prostitution from Army camp areas.
