- agement of competition and small business, less intervention by the federal government, and the repeal of prohibition, but did contain a plank, at AFL insistence, favoring shorter hours.30 Except for the Boston address of October 31st, none of Roosevelt's major speeches dealt pri- marily with the problems of workers. Its preparation involved the only important rift within the brain trust. Berle and Tugwell urged a direct attack upon business abuses and a broad affirmative program, while Moley, General Johnson, Senator Key Pittman, and Senator James F. Byrnes

75 Most Americans, if they think about it all, are likely to think that wine making in this country has always been an Italian affair. That is understandable enough, for the dominant names in American wine since the repeal of Prohibition have been largely Italian: Gallo, Cella, Foppiano, Petri, Bisceglia, Martini, Mondavi — the list is long and impressive. But this large Italian presence in the foreground of things distorts our perspective: the fact is that there were few Italians to be found on the American wine- making scene until the end of the

Authority full power to close down any bar that served homosexuals. "In the two and a half decades that followed [the repeal of Prohibition], it closed literally hundreds of bars that welcomed, tolerated, or simply failed to notice the patronage of gay men or lesbians. As a result, while the number of gay bars proliferated in the 1930s, '40s, and '50s, most of them lasted only a few months or years, and gay men were forced to move constantly from place to place, dependent on the grapevine to inform them of where the new meeting places were" (Chauncey 1994: 339

organizational structure with the cre- ation of a syndicate cartel, the Three Prosperities Company, which regulated the contraband opium enterprise in association with the Chaozhou opium merchants, military and police agencies, and city politicians. This system, as refined by Du Yuesheng, might well be described as "the Shanghai pattern." With the repeal of Prohibition in 1933 the criminal syndicates to which it had given rise did not dissolve themselves but retained their organizational coherence and redirected their energies into other activities: gambling

The hotel went under after the stock market crash the following year and reemerged in its more influential incarnation as the Dunbar Hotel. The Central District really began to take off after the repeal of Prohibition in 1933, when beer gardens, nightclubs, and after-hours clubs could operate under condi- tions far more conducive to the music scene. The election of reform mayor Fletcher Bowron in 1938 put pressure on the city’s unrestrained nightlife and more

live music — a glimmer of hope in the unemployment morass. That same hopeful- ness, however, led to a series of events that triggered a collision between Local 6 and its counterpart, Local 648, the union that had been founded ten years earlier to serve the San Francisco Bay Area’s African American musicians. T H E BAT T L E OF T H E U N IONS Local 6 wasted little time after the repeal of Prohibition to begin enforcing wage standards in San Francisco’s nightclubs.21 Even before the national ratifica- tion process was completed on December 5, 1933, the local’s board

used in the 1930s to convey elegance. Many restaurants used it, although I am sure the sales- men for the Ohio Match Company (the publisher of the matchbook) took care not to recommend this image to businesses in close proximity to one another. Because the company wanted to sell this matchbook to a vari- ety of establishments, the couple is drinking water, not wine. A wineglass would have suggested that alcohol was served, but some of the company’s customers had remained dry after the repeal of Prohibition. The 1930s match cover for Miller’s Hotel in Strauss

• 177 As the movement widened, along with its rising popularity it confronted signifi cant legal and tax hurdles that craft brewers had to overcome. By 1978, there remained only eighty-nine total breweries in the United States, owned by half as many companies.15 Big beer had a fi rm grasp on the American beer industry as it continued to conglomerate and take advantage of a legally man- dated marketing and distribution system that dated to the repeal of Prohibition. Federal law determined that alcohol production and sale occur within a three-tiered system. Th is
