Fight over U.S. prohibition...
Item # 630429
January 18, 1931
THE NEW YORK TIMES, section 9 only, January 18, 1931
* Prohibition in the United States
* Wests vs. Drys w/ Illustration
The front page of this section has a banner headline: "BEST STRATEGY FOR THE WETS AS BECK SEES IT; The Pennsylvania Representative Asserts that Congress Has the Legal Right to Withhold Enforcement Appropriations and That Wets Need Only 200 Votes in the House to Bring About This Situation" with clever parody illustration of a Trojan horse (camel here) showing men escaping with liquor in their hands. Lengthy text takes up the rest of the front page. Nice for display.
Other topics throughout. Complete section 9 only with all 20 pages, rag edition in nice condition.
