n.— «It seems that some of the ‘dry’ leaders of the state are in danger of jeopardizing the cause of sobriety by their weak-knee statements. And, of course, they are being ably assisted by certain headline writer desk men who are most prayerful for the ‘wet’ side. The former gentlemen need a shot of spizerinctum and the latter need the darkness [put] out of their minds.» —“Letters to the Editor” by G.C Graham Statesville Daily Record Feb. 7, 1947.
