FIVE MILE ZONE AROUND
CAMPS, WILSON ORDERS.
President Ropes Off the Dry and Moral Divisions.
[By A Staff Correspondent.]
Washington, D. C., July 23 — [Special.] — The dry and moral zones around military training camps were defined today in an order issued by President Wilson. It is possible that this order will be interpreted to apply not only to camps where officers and privates are being trained but to camps in which soldiers are stationed for guard and other duty.
The president’s order follows:
Here is the Order.
"No person, whether acting individually or as an officer, member, agent, representative, or employé of an individual, shall, in or within five miles of any military camp, except as hereinafter provided, sell or barter, directly or indirectly, either alone or with any other article, any alcoholic liquor, including beer, ale, or wine, to any person or give or serve any such alcoholic liquor to any person, except that this prohibition against serving or giving alcoholic liquor shall not apply to the serving of wines or liquors in a private home to members of the family or to bona fide guests therein other than officers or members of the military forces; and no person, whether acting individually or as a member, officer, agent, representative or employé of any corporation, partnership, or association, or as an agent, representative, or employé of an individual, shall send, ship, transmit, or transport in any manner or cause to be shipped, transmitted, or transported in any manner any alcoholic liquors, including beer, ale, or wine, to any place within five miles of any military camp, except for use in his home as herein before authorized; provided, that where the existing limits of an incorporated city or town are within five miles of a military camp, the prohibition upon the sale, barter, gift, service, sending, shipment, transmission, or transportation of alcoholic liquors imposed by this regulation shall not apply to any part of the incorporated city or town distant more than one half mile from said camp.
Also a Moral Zone.
"Under the authority of section 13 of the same act the keeping or setting up of houses of ill fame, brothels or bawdy houses within five miles of any military camp, station, fort, post, cantonment, training, or mobilization place being used for military purposes by the United States is prohibited."
