1930 Prohibition Punches A book of Beverage by Roxan B. Doran



Zero Hour-the author's own! That moment of breathless anticipation just be– fore the dawn of a new adventure; a new dream's reality. To the world-the hour when all nature seems stilled; all living things, motionless, await– ing the dawn. Or perhaps that moment of ominous quiet before the crash of cannon and high shriek of shell quicken exhausted senses to the stark reality of war. To the author the moment that comes at last; after a long night of toil; of weav– ing elusive dreams into the fabric of a book! Hushed interval, bringing with it the welcome hint of daw11ing as the author catches breath and sighing, says, ''Now, my task is done! Soon, with the coming dawn, my book will have its little day. If only it may cast a beam of light-not shadow– across the Dial of Life, I am content.''
