|1.||Congress should strengthen the Volstead Act to provide for substantial jail sentences, with probation for first offenders.|
|2.||Congress should enact laws requiring the greatest co- operation possible between all federal officers who have to do with the enforcement of the prohibition laws, and state officers, and should require all customs officers and immigration officers to perform duties of prohibition enforcement officers and give them the same powers.|
|3.||Congress should provide for enough enforcement officers to effectively cover all of the borders of the country and all the large cities in the country.|
|4.||Congress should provide for enough courts to handle all cases arising under the prohibition laws promptly.|
|5.||Congress should provide for the enforcement of the prohibition laws on the waters under the control of the United States, both inland and ocean, by the use of sufficient vessels to efficiently patrol such waters.|
|6.||All the states should be urged to enact such laws as are necessary to enforce effectively the provisions of the 18th Amendment and to co-operate fully with the federal enforcement officers.|
|7.||If any state refuses to enact such laws, the federal government should send into such state sufficient enforcement officers, and provide sufficient courts to enforce the federal laws as will be likely to give the citizens of such state the same protection as will be given in states which are in sympathy with the enforcement of the 18th Amendment.|
