|1.||Secure the sympathetic and understanding co- operation and support of the rank and file of law-abiding citizens, inspire confidence in the government's enforcement methods, and create a new respect for law in those who consistently observe every fundamental law of the land except the 18th Amendment.|
|2.||Change the government's plan for enforcing the Amendment and stop the illegal liquor traffic at its source.|
The prohibited liquor traffic is no more supplied by home brew than the New York City water system is supplied by local springs. Wipe out the great sources of supply of liquor traffic, and it cannot continue. The lawless element carrying on the traffic knows this.
