Enigma... January 4’ 1955
ROBERT NAHAWES
Mr. Russell desCoanets,
Lexington, Kentucky
Dear Mr. desCognets:
I am pleased to have your letter of January 2nd. The address
of David R. Francis, Jr. is 222 North Fourth Street, St. Louis and I
am sure he will be delighted to receive the book carrying the nersonal
item you refer to.
To be sure I was delighted over the results of the election.
I do not attach the same significance to the nresence in the Congress
of the Lame Duck Members. Senator Robinson of Arkansas is the leader
of the Democracy in the Congress and if the congressmen from Arkansas
had voted in favor of repeal it would have carried in the House. My
recollection is that all seven congressmen from that state voted against
repeal so that if only four of them had voted for it it would have
carried. It is history that political parties do not always carry out
platform and pro—election nromises and the longer the reneal nronosal
is mending the more difficult it becomes to orocure the requisite number
of senators and congressmen. Every big wave of nonular protest has an
almost nronortional backwash which the Prohibition leaders are familiar
with and I shall always be fearful that this backwash will catch many
congressmen from dry sections. Then too it remains a big question whether
constitutional conventions will put the Repeal Amendment over. I would
be in doubt as to what Kentucky, for example, would do on that subject
when the time comes. Kentucky has always beeen conservative and the mis—
guided religious influences in the rural districts would doubtless vote
for dry delegates to a constitutional convention. It is for that reason
that these conventions should be composed of delegates elected in the states
at large.
One of the bright Spots of the year 1932 was my visit to
Lexington and I trust that I may be able to reueat it in 1935.
With all good wishes for you and Mrs. desCognets,
Yours sincerely,

"In sorrow and humility we confesS
our share of responsibility and guilt
. fOT the' present unhappy situation.
We have been prone to forget that in
American political life under present
conditions our legislators and execu-
tives are reflectors rather than direc-
tors of the public sentiment. we have
failed in SUDDOl‘ting .the well—disposed
”mops these by visible and audible
sentiment. We have failed adequately
to keep pace with the moral problems
of our great cities. We have failed
in maintaining thorough and clean-
cut scientific instruction about the
evils of alcohol in our public schools,
secondary schools, colleges and uni-
versities. "In our churches our zeal
has slackened in the matter oftem-
‘perance preaching and teaching or
else has failed to keep pace with the
.. need of a. new generation which knew
nothing about the oldrsaloon, which
has a new attitude toward alcoholic
beverages since the World War and
which in many of cm schools and
_ colleges is vaguely inquiring why
. after all it is wrong to drink. In a
‘ word, we have failed by forgetting
. that, when we have secured a. law
against thetraffic in drink we must
not slacken but' redouble ‘our efforts
. to educate the next generation
against, the habit of drink.‘ This fail-
} ure we humbly confess and are highly
resolved by the grace of God to do
better. .
Hit Liquor Tax. .
“But it would be a still greater error
to assume that our problem could be '
‘ solved by education against the habit
of drink without a law against the
traffic. With the traffic, financing its
propaganda and flaunting its adver—
tising. such an attempt at eduCation
against the habit would be rendered
almost futile. While there is no coun~
sel of perfection in this difficult busi—
' ness, there are but two general types
' of policy and there is no compromise
‘ between them. Under the first policy,
' the liquor traffic is an outlaw. The
‘ second policy would make it legal. Un-
i cler the first. we have to contend with
f the liquor traffic as the breaker of
law; but under the second. as a maker
‘ of law. The first is difficult; the sec-
ond intolerable.’ It is now proposed
to make this evil traffic 3 basis of
, revenue. on the classic principle of
f{Bompelling the backs of our vices to
bear the burden of our taxes, Such
V taxes. taken from the pockets of those
3 least able to pay, or from the pockets
of legitimate business. simply sell the
' soul of the Nation by legalizing an
,1 immoral traffic to secure a dubious
‘ prospect of relief from tax burdens.
I "In the numb. and for the sake of
the American people by whom the
Eighteenth Amendment was made a
' part of the constitution of the United
’ States. we, the members of this Con-
, fercncc. officially representing the
‘ evangelical churches and the various
dry organizations in the State slip—
porting the Eighteenth Amendment.
make this declaration.
“We. are. for the maintenance of the
' Eighteenth Amendment and the Pro-
hibition Amendment in our State
Constitution. We are unalterably op- '
posed to all pi'OpOsals for their repeal.
We are likewise opposed to any pro-
posal for modification or changein
‘ enforcement laws which Will give any
legal standing, permission, aid or _
comfort, to‘the liquor traffic.
Gird for Conflict,
“Against these we will battle with-
out compromise or evasion.
"We offer the liquor traffic no olive
branch. We, hung out no white flag.
In supreme confidence in the justice
of our cause and faith in that Higher
Power which has never failed our
country, We gird ourselves for the
conflict. . .
. “We call the people to witness the
sight of brewers and their agents
sitting in conference with the House
Committee on Ways and Means plan-
:Dll’la‘ the re-establishment of their
forbidden business, the only excuse
for their presence being an expressed
willingness to share their profits with
the Government, knowing that all
such gains must be coined from the a
misery and degradation induced by v
j the greed and appetite which inhere l)
, in the liquor traffic. 0
“We point to the shameful haste'
with which the House of Represents:
iivvs was rushed to :1 vote on :1 pro—
posal to submit Li repeal of the» Eight-
eenth Amendment with less than an
hour for discussion—a haste not less
censuroble because a sufficient num-
ber of members, moved by a sense of
. obligation to the country. rallied to
the defeat of the proposition,
“We invite the attention of the peo-
ple to the spectacle of the opponents
of prohibition in this hour of crisis
blocking consideration of measures of
reliEf by demanding prior considera-
tion of their proposals for the restora-
tion of 'the .liquor traffic. As in the
past. this business is insensible to the
woes of the people and willing to take
every possible advantage.
“We deny that the recent election
was a mandate for repeal or modifi-
cation of the Eighteenth Amendment.
The major political parties refused
their own delegates to their national
coliVEntions any opportunity to speak
or vote in support of the maintenance
and enforcement of the Eighteenth
Amendment. Their platform dec—
larations gave the voters of the Nation
no opportunity for the expression of
faith in the Nation-wide prohibition
policy enacted by, the Eighteenth
Amendment. and support-ed by the
laws for its enforcement. No man-l
date can exist, where no such choice'
is possible. .

KA-Mmmwmln. You may have noticed in the papers that Mr.
Jouett Shouse, the president of our organization,
is coming out to Louisville January the 17th to 3
make an address in response to the invitation of 5
the women's organization. It appears that it is 3
not absolutely positive that he will come as it %
_ depends upon the condition of his wife's health. I
, She has been in hospital recuperating from a I
major operation. However, I judge that he will 1
be here. 1
Mrs. Todd has preempted nearly all of his
time; but it occurred to me that you people at
Lexington might get him to stop by and make a
talk at,say a luncheon. I make this suggestion
because of the appearance of greater organized
efforts in Kentucky in support of prohibition.
Enclosed I send you a clipping from this morning's '
Courier-Journal which proves this.
If we are going to carry through in our fight
it will be neceSSary for us to get busy.
Sincerely,
Chairman

figfiffigfifi‘ My dear Mr. des Cognets: d
H. F. I‘JINDBEY
ltAdwmmm“”L YOu doubtless noticed in the dispatches
several days ago that the Governor of New 3
York has appointed a commission to study 2
and make recommendations in View of the .
. possibility, or likelihood, of the modifi- ;
cation of the Volstead Act and repeal of the -' _
' 18th Amendment. The Women's Organization of =
Kentucky has adopted a resolution requesting ,
> the Governor of Kentucky to take similar action. a
The Women ask us to join them in this appeal to .‘
the Governor of Kentucky. As it is next to 1*
impossible to get a meeting of our Board of ,9
Directors I am writing to each member of the
Finance Committee asking that I be authorized ,
to join in this petition to the Governor. The j
intention is to do this immediately so I will
request an answer to this letter at once. In ‘
effect I am requesting the Finance Committee ‘}
to act as an Executive Committee. fl
Sincerely, -
