Police Unable to Stop Rising Tide of Auto Thefts

Nov. 23, 1919, Beer  

As the country went dry, companies offered a way for people to brew their own alcohol.  Remember, beer is a health drink!

 Nov. 23, 1919, Auto Thefts 

Nov. 23, 1919: “Motor car thefts are increasing and will continue to increase until some effective measure is taken to stop them. Any boy can steal an automobile these days and have nothing in particular to fear in the way of punishment if he is caught. The chances are pretty strong that he won't be caught at all.”
