The sale and use of alcohol is creating a problem of tremendous importance to the social and economic welfare of our nation. This problem is an especially difficult one because beverage alcohol has been legalized for both public and private consumption. One way to combat the evils, which are inherent in its widespread and intemperate use, is through the development of a common sense workable program of public enlightenment based on accurate information. Reading materials, particularly school texts on health and physiology, have emphasized the physiological effects of indulgence in alcoholic drinks. Today, the social and economic facets of this problem command the attention of the responsible citizen. It is with these social and economic aspects that this booklet is primarily concerned.
