WHEREAS, we recognize the use of beverage alcohol as a menace to the moral, social and economic life of the nation and assess it as one of the grave problems of our time,

BE IT RESOLVED that we urge our churches and member organizations to accelerate efforts to educate and inform their constituency on this issue. We believe that effective witness against the evils of the liquor industry can best be borne by a thoroughly informed and enlightened evangelical community.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT we encourage our people to aid all govern¬mental efforts to discourage by law the sale and use of alcoholic beverages.
