Law Observance: Shall the People of the United States Uphold the Constitution?

By W. Durant C. | Go to book overview

WOMAN'S SHARE IN EDUCATING THE PUBLIC
Mrs. Henry W. Peabody, Chairman, Woman's National Committee for Law Enforcement Beverly, MassachusettsTHE whole question should be taken out of partisan politics. The country has a right to demand that this law be honestly enforced.An eight year old law, however, like an eight year old boy, requires time for development. Considerable discipline and enforcement are needed before we can expect the best results in our great cities and so-called wet states. We give a boy 18 to 21 years to attain his majority. This law may require even more time.Liquor interests are lawless today as they always have been. Bad example and constant propaganda are doing their utmost to undermine the constitutional law.Notwithstanding this the law will not be taken out of the Constitution. Already the Supreme Court has rendered 40 unanimous favorable decisions in cases pertaining to the 18th Amendment and the Volstead Act. Congress is 83⅓% dry in the Senate at present, 75½% dry in the House. The executive will be upheld by sufficient appropriations and by enactment of active and effective measures looking toward enforcement.
Some Reasons for Present Failure
1. Certain state and city governments are in rebellion against the law. They are too often in the hands of unscrupulous politicians.
2. Special protection has been provided for men in office and those who pay for immunity from deserved penalties.
3. No adequate attempt to meet this situation has been made by the federal government.
