"The revised act contains a provi- sion making purchase or cousumption of alcoholic beverages by minors a misdemeanor," Edgar said. "Hereto- fore only those selling to minors have been punished. Now the Juvenile who purchases or consumes liquor, even though he may not have purchased it. is considered equally guilkv. The board, anxious to reduce drinking among juv- eniles to .the lowest possible minimum, hopes to accomplish this through the new law and cooperation of the pub- lic. "There is also a new regulation con- cerning possession of empty distilled spirits bottles, those which have con- tained whiskey, rum, brandy, gin, etc. Such bottles cannot be possessed, or used for any purpose, nor can they be bought, sold or given away. They must be destroyed. "The State Board of Equalization hopes for the widest publicity on these two points so that juveniles and adults may not be involved in violating them." STATE FAIR FOR 1937 California's leading industries are to be featured in a 10-day pageant at the California State Fair in Sacramento, September 3 to 12. Each day of the fair will be devoted to either an industry or activity in- cluding Agriculture, Press, Churches, Fruit. Radio, Motion Pictures, Manu- facturing, Livestock, Mining and Edu- cation. Governor's Day, one of the tradi- tions of the fair, has been changed from Thursday to Friday. The change breaks an 82-year-old custom and was necessary because Admission Day this year falls on Thursday. An electrified sign was erected last week over the main entrance to the grounds. It is more than 40 feet long with block letters three feet high. The sign, carrying the name and date of the fair. was used for inaugurating the new slogan. "The fair has gone mod- crll." Secretary-Manager Robert Muckler reported to the board of directors that several counties are working on their exhibit booths in the Horticulture hall. Our Adlet Column helps.
