(no dust jacket) [ex-library with fairly minimal markings (incl pocket on rear pastedown, date due slip on last page), some curling at corners, a few creases in rear cover]. Includes reports from many individual states on the progress of prohibitionist activities. One highlight is the "Hall and Summers Dialogue-Debate," which is essentially a two-character play which takes place "when Tom O'Neill comes to the office of the License Commission to pay his annual liquor license," and gets in a long discussion with the Commissioner, in the course of which he spouts great dialogue like "Ain't that a beautiful bungaloo?" and "Oh, you poor boob." A fascinating social-historical document.
