8. PROHIBITION r In 1920 I fooled around with Ory's band, Bab Frank's band at Jim Tom's Road House, and the Tuxedo Band. Then in 1921, before the season opened, Charlie Creath sent for me and Johnny St. Cyr to go to work on the steamer St. Paul. We gave the Tuxedo Band a two month, two week notice. Then when we left Bebe Ridgley said, "Hate to see you go man, you coulda stayed with us, you guys are dirty." Everybody liked Papa Celestin but the guys didn't like Ridgley and he had the band. They finally split off. Ridgley had the Original Tuxedo Band and

TWO National Prohibition The Eighteenth Amendment represents the first effort in our history to extend directly by Constitutional provision the police control of the federal government to the personal habits and conduct of the individual. It was an experiment, the extent and difficulty of which was probably not appreciated.

Even when the

Since 1999, visits to Sierra Morena were marked by family strife, and each year Isidra’s November feast for Yemayá had among its motives to establish propitious con- ditions for her trip there. Yemayá presides

86 From 1920 until 1933, the United States conducted the “noble experiment” of Prohibition; the mocking epithet “noble experiment” stuck based on comments made by President Herbert Hoover in 1928.1 The state of Illinois had largely ignored the Wartime Prohibition Act that went into effect in July 1919, so January 17, 1920, was the first day of major consequence regarding the antialcohol legislation and its enforcement.2 The eve of Prohibition was an especially busy day for liquor sales as citizens of Chicago stocked up on their home supplies.3 The law

93 while residents of the “Hop Center of the World” had been able to shrug off prohibition’s advance in the fi rst decade of the twentieth century, the story quickly changed. In 1912, Oregon’s women achieved the right to vote via the state ballot-initiative process, and a majority supported the out- law of booze. Th is should not have come as a surprise. American women had long exercised their political voices for the causes of temperance and prohibi- tion.1 But it still proved demoralizing for Oregon’s alcohol-related industries and consumers. In a vote of

Chapter 61 The Five Prohibitions Huang Di asked Qi Bo: I have been informed of “five prohibitions” associated with piercing. What is that to say. “five prohibitions”?1 Qi Bo: These are prohibitions disallowing a piercing. Huang Di: I have been informed of “five pillages” associated with piercing. Qi Bo: This concerns situations where there must be no drainage because there must be no pillaging.2 1 HDNJZP: “These are the days on which one must refrain from piercing certain locations on the body.” 2 HDNJZP: “These are conditions of a massive depletion of the

Chapter 48 Prohibition and Appropriation Lei Gong asked Huang Di: I, a mite,1 have received [Your] instructions. I have gone through the 60 chapters2 on the nine needles. From dawn to dusk I have assiduously appropriated [their contents]. The writings of more recent times have fallen apart3 and the bamboo slips of older times are stained.4 Still, even though I recite them and never lay them aside, I have not yet completely grasped their meaning. [The text] the Assessment from Outside speaks of “[the task of ] binding it into one tuft.”5 I do not yet know

better tenants (for better hotels, apartments, or suburban life) left thousands of hotels packed with what one social worker in the m i d - 1 9 7 0 s described as " a human residue of the elderly and p o o r .

Volstead Act not only kept California winegrowers alive, it saved the industry from failing altogether. For starters, under the act sacramental wine was allowed; produced for consumption in reli- gious rites and celebrations, such libations were made for mass or temple, and also could be stored in small quantities in the home. Venerable wineries like Beringer and Beaulieu Vineyard were among the largest suppliers and were able to survive by the grace of God and the clergy’s sacramental requirements. 5 RHÔNE VARIETIES THROUGH PROHIBITION AND AFTER 62 • P R E L

We could say that in this instance, Sharman’s new colleagues were off ering her the proper welcome into their culture, acknowledging her status as one of the team, emphasizing the Russianness of Mir, and normalizing the extraordinary experience of being in space by connecting with the social mores of Earth. We could interpret Sharman’s recognition of and participation in their ritual as signals of her understanding and accept- ance of her hosts’ culture, her willingness and ability to become social- chapter 4 Culture Ritual, Prohibition, and Taboo
