Originally published in the Star News, January 22, 1919
Thursday the United States added a new amendment to its constitution when Nebraska passed favorably on the prohibition amendment 35 states had already voted for it and Nebraska, Missouri, Wyoming and Wisconsin and one or two other states have run the number up to the 40 mark.
This means that one year from January 16, the country will stop the manufacture and sale of liquor for beverages purposes.
This however will probably happen July 1 of this year because of a law passed by Congress which stops the manufacture and sale for six months after the demobilization of the armies.
