("Of course I am delighted but not surprised by the primary appeal of the 18th amendment. I felt all along, that when this matter was properly submitted to the rank and file of our people, that they would readily see that it had no place in our constitution. It would be very difficult if not impossible to estimate the benefits that would come to this country from the lesson taught to the coming generation to make it their business to see that no such matter ever again is made the subject of federal constitutional law.") At the dock you see the first shipment of Liquor loaded on to a cargo ship as young ladies are sitting on the cases of liquor waving some kind of legal documents in their hands gleefully waving them.
