"The Republican and Democratic conventions endorsed virtually identical positions on the regulation of intoxicants.  Each platform committed the party's nominee to enforce the Eighteenth Amendment and federal laws relating to the sale and manufacture of alcoholic beverages.  The only difference was that the Democrats added a clause attacking the lax enforcement policies of the Coolidge administration.  Each party labeled its prohibition plank 'Law Enforcement' rather than 'Prohibition.'"
