An international cdncatio.npl 3 ro-
crim has been conducted in practical !

Thousands of workers speaking many
languages have been carrying ferwarl
t hi< work.
All over the world we have Ik en

effect of alcohol on the human sys-
Discouraged and Encouraged
Difficulties and obstacles of course
have offset these W. C. T. U. workers
I ut they have been encouraged and
cbeercd on by two facts:
One: They always have known they
were a part of a great organization,
that they were all banded together
foi one purpose, and could count on
the support and cooperation of their
tellow workers everywhere.
Two- Minos* from thia beginning
we achieved some results, and witn
ihe passing years and the extending
of our efforts intc newer and larger
territories we have seen the work of
going feuccessfullv forward.
In recent years great strides to
wtard world wide prohibition Have
been made. With these ad\ancenient«
many reinforcements have joined our
ranks. Many rational, thinking men
tnd wome nthe worlu ever who were
ct originally in sympathy with pro-
hibition have come to see the sound
scientific basi« of our program and
the. necessity of our objective with
us and are now lending their best ef-
fcrts to our work.
We shall carry on our program
along practically the same lines we
hive followed for 40 years, an.l we
are confident cf a successful termina-

the matter of cigarots and tobacco is
sxactly what, it always has been.
We do not put tobacco and cigarets
side by side with alccriollc beverages.
Our, national program on the sub-
let of tobacco is an uneducationoi
one, cutlined and carried forward in
the interest of the health o! boys and
g rls everywhere.
It is based on established scientific
facts that piovo beyond question tin

We have worked largely with the.
school and other educational official.!
and authorities and almost without
exception they have shown the keen

to co-operate with us.
