Beer Party At Church

Back Jan. 30, 1917, a handful of boisterous church youth held a beer party in the Methodist Church at Conesville.

Imagine the shame and guilt these youth must of felt when their cereal malt beverage indiscretion was splashed across the newspaper's front page. Also, you can imagine how the Prohibitionists must have used this as a "Witness how that Beezlebub known as beer has corrupted our innocent youth!" moment.

Who can blame them? World War I raged and I'm sure draft was on their minds.
