Summary:
This issue of the Pioneer Press includes the article "The Teetotoalling Days are Over". This article manly focuses the viewpoint of the draw backs of drinking whether or not the user is underage. The Author also stresses the fact that there is a need to raise the drinking age across the whole country in order to try and prevent under age citizens from drive from one state to another one whose legal drinking age is lower. This was all in the attempt to decrease the number of fatal car crashes across and within state boundaries. This is historically significant due to the fact that thought the early 70s and all the way till the late 90s there was a big push to raise the drinking age in all states across the country. This was due to the fact that the number of fatal car accidents were at an all time high. This movement to try to reduce the number of fatal crashes became a issue on the national stage in the early 1980. Mothers against Drunk Driving, which was created on September 5, 1980 in California, sought to spread awareness across both the United States and Canada of the dangers of drunk driving as well as driving under the influence of other drugs. Summary and historical context written by Christopher Santiago Jr. as part of Dr. Michelle Carriagan's Fall 2018 AMH2020.
