But there is still a deeper reason, based upon the latest discoveries in 

psychology, why caution in this respect should be observed by women. We 

allude to the discovery that alcohol first affects the mental and 

emotional tendencies of more recent racial acquirement, acting so as to 

paralyze and inhibit the activities thereof, and to thus release the 

activity of the more primitive emotions and motive activities. Thus, the 

woman under the influence of alcohol finds that the more recent racial 

traits, such as sexual control, restraint, sexual morality, conventional 

observations, etc., are practically temporarily paralyzed in 

inhibitual--or to use the current slang phrase, are "put out of 

commission" for the time being; and, at the same time, the old 

elemental, savage, barbaric, "cave man" instincts, habits, and methods 

of action, are brought to the surface, and proceed to manifest their 

activity if opportunity be granted for the same--and the opportunity is 

usually granted. This being seen to be true, it is seen that the woman 

so under the influence of liquor is, for the time being, little more 

than a "cave woman," or barbarian, with all the lax sex morality of the 

latter, and with all the tendencies to manifest into activity the 

primitive impulses arising in her nature and demanding expression. Added 

to this the weakening of will-power always accompanying the alcoholic 

influence, it is seen that the woman under the influence of strong drink 

is an easy prey to designing men, and a willing victim to her own lower 

passions. 

 

An authority of sex subjects says: "That Bacchus, the god of wine, is 

the strongest ally of Venus, the goddess of love, using the term Love in 

its physical sense, as the French use the word 'amour,' has been well 

known to the ancient Greeks and Romans, as it is well known today to 

every saloon-keeper and every keeper of a disreputable house. And all 

measures to combat venereal diseases and to prevent girls from making a 

false step will only be partially successful if we do not at the same 

time carry on a strong educational campaign against alcoholic 

indulgence. * * * Of what use are warnings to a girl, when under the 

influence of a heavy dinner and a bottle of champagne, to which she is 

unaccustomed, her passion is aroused to a degree she has never 

experienced before, her will is paralyzed and she yields, though deep 

down in her consciousness something tells her she shouldn't? She yields, 

becomes pregnant, and is in the deepest agony for several months, and 

has a wound which will probably never heal for the rest of her life. Of
