A public spirited citizen has propounded the question: "What is the best and most practicable plan to make the 18th Amendment effective"? John Sherman once electrified the nation by the simple statement that "the way to resume is to resume". His suggestion may properly be paraphrased here by stating that "the way to make the 18th Amendment effective is to enforce the law".
Ever since the ratification of the 18th Amendment its enemies have persisted in a demand for a national referendum, maintaining that its passage and ratification were secured by a minority. The referendum has now been held. The nation in no uncertain terms has again taken its stand in favor of the Amendment. Having done so, has it the power and determination to make the Amendment fully effective, and if so, how?
