A CROP OF EVILS. (Published by Arrangement) [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 18 April 1924

A CROP OF EVILS. (Published by Arrangement) A scathing denouncement of Pro hibition has been made in the New York 'Times' by Dr. S. Dana Hub bard, Director of Public Health Edu cation of the Department of Health, TsJpw Ynvlr 'Prohibition,' he declares, 'has increased admission to general hos pitals of cases of alcoholism. 'Prohibition has closed the hotels, but has made home-brewing and oc casioned home-drinking. 'Prohibition has increased the number of arrests for drunkenness. 'Prohibition has brought about wholesale disrespect of the_Iaw. __ 'Prohibition has caused poisonous death-dealing drinks to be made and promiscuously sold. 'Prohibition has increased alco holic indulgence by the adolescent male and female.'
