THE GLOBE, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, January 16, 1919

The top of the front page has a two column heading: "PROHIBITION WILL NOW BECOME PART OF BASIC LAW OF COUNTRY" with subheads. (see) The same day Nebraska would ratify as well, formally ratifying the 18th amendment to the Constitution & causing Prohibition to take effect the next year.
