Ex-Governor of Indiana. Will Be One
of Speakers at Plying Squad
ron's Closing Meeting
In his address at last evening's
meeting held by the Flying Squadron
at Gr'a-ce Methodist church, Daniel A.
Poling said in part:
"The money spent by the people
of the United States in cooking their
iusides with alcohol would increase
the wages of the laborer from two to
three times what he already receives
and with the money 1,300,000 more
men could be employed.
"The liquor business does not help
the survival of the fittest in man
kind. It does not select out of society
the strongest and brawniest of men.
The meanest man that I ever SJW never
touched a drop, but one of the finest
young men that I knew in boyhood,
and who was one of the best college
athletes, is now a drunken bum on the
streets and will find his final resting
place in the Potter's field."
The speakers scheduled for to-day
are Dr. Ira Lamlrith this afternoon
and Dr. Carolyn Geisel this evening.
At the closing sessions to-morrow the
lecturers will be J. Frank Hanly, form
er Governor of Indiana, and Oliver
Wayne Stewart, former member of the
Illinois Legislature and noted temper
ance orator of the Middle West. The
soloist will be Miss Vera K. Mullin.
The plan of the Flying Squadron is
unique in the history of the United
States. It is headed by former Govern
or J. Frank Hanlv, of Indrana, one of
the most powerful temperance speak
ers in the United States. It is organiz
ed in three groups, eaeh group com
plete within itself. The first group
conducts the meeting of the first day,
and issues 011 to the next city, its
place being taken by the second and
third groups in succession. In aililitiou
