The front page has a 4-column, 2-line heading: "SUPREME COURT HOLDS 18TH AMENDMENT VALID", with considerable supporting text. Yet again the Supreme Court fended off another challenge to the validity of Prohibition. The 19th Amendment would eventually be repealed, but this would not occur until 1933.
