  4. 4. 1920 In 1920 the 18th amendment was ratified. This new amendment caused a lot of people to break the law. The new law dramatically decreased the consumption of alcohol but caused the price of alcohol to inflate. It also meant there was a good deal more profit to be made in the production and distribution of alcohol. The mafia played a major role in the distribution and production of alcohol. When the government started cracking down hard on saloon owners, they decided to make money by introducing gambling and prostitution as new means of income. The 18th amendment states: After one year from the ratification of this article the manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating liquors within, the importation thereof into, or the exportation thereof from the United States and all territory subject to the jurisdiction thereof for beverage purposes is hereby prohibited.

Roosevelt signing the Social Security Act of 1935.
  20. 20. 1936 In1936, Eleanor Roosevelt starts to publish a syndicated* column called “ My Day.” The newspaper column was a way for Roosevelt to express her opinion. This newspaper column made her a tempting target for political enemies. *syndicate (n.) An association of people or firms authorized to undertake a duty or transact specific business.* NOVEMBER 18, 1957 NEW YORK—When in Michigan the past week, I found myself reading the Detroit Free Press, trying to find out what that part of the country is particularly interested in.One editorial discussed President Eisenhower's wisdom in giving the country information on his health and mentioned that, by his example, he was encouraging annual health checkups.Then there was an editorial on Representative Walter H. Judd's proposal that the United Nations undertake a new type of aid program to fill a gap between technical assistance, which provides advice and persons to teach industrial know-how, and the actual furnishing of money and materials through the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development.Representative Judd's idea is that we should provide through voluntary contributions &quot;intensive surveys of physical resources, train administrators and offer fundamental industrial research.&quot; The editorial did not say whether these contributions should come from individuals or governments.Representative Judd thinks such a program would attract private investment to countries where there are new resources to be developed.The Detroit Free Press believes that the important part of the program centers in Dr. Judd's remark that &quot;private capital must be the real source of development in any nation.&quot; The reason the Free Press thinks this is a good program and hopes it will get U.N. consideration is because it feels such a plan would promote our economic system of capitalism. The newspaper feels that because of what it calls our give-away policy we have lost the respect of other nations.The results, of course, would depend upon how this new plan would be adapted to conditions where it is tried out. It might help Greatly in some areas and not so much in others. I doubt very much if we can expect to develop an exact counterpart of our economic system or our form of government in other areas of the world. Without question, both will have to be adjusted to meet the needs and situations of other countries.To say that the sputniks have aroused interest in the Soviet Union is putting it mildly. It would have been well had we never lost our interest in the U.S.S.R., for then we would have been aware over the past years of the possibilities of development under the compulsory Communistic system.Lack of knowledge about our adversaries is apt to produce surprises such as those we have just been treated to. And now it is hard to answer the multitude of questions which have built up in the minds of our people.I spoke one night last week at Eastern Michigan College in Ypsilanti, which is only eight miles from Ann Arbor where I began my tour not quite a week earlier. Ypsilanti is a small but attractive city with a number of industries and two colleges. It is only 30 miles from Detroit and, therefore, a part of the great automobile center of our country.I also visited one of the first schools in this country for retarded children. The school not only cares for the mentally retarded, but for spastics and post-polio cases as well, and I was told that nearly all the children here are able to acquire something from education. E.R.

  40. 40. Marcus Garvey Marcus Garvey was a publisher, journalist, orator, entrepreneur, and black nationalist.

His goal was &quot;to unite all people of African ancestry of the world to one great body to establish a country and absolute government of their own.” In other words, he wanted to divide the country In half. He wanted black’s on one side, white’s on the other. How did Marcus Garvey come up with the name for the organization? Here’s his answer; &quot;Where did the name of the organization come from? It was while speaking to a West Indian Negro who was a passenger with me from Southampton, who was returning home to the West Indies from Basutoland with his Basuto wife, that I further learned of the horrors of native life in Africa. He related to me in conversation such horrible and pitiable tales that my heart bled within me. Retiring from the conversation to my cabin, all day and the following night I pondered over the subject matter of that conversation, and at midnight, lying flat on my back, the vision and thought came to me that I should name the organization the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities (Imperial) League. Such a name I thought would embrace the purpose of all black humanity. Thus to the world a name was born, a movement created, and a man became known.&quot;
