RAPS 'GOOD' LAWBREAKERS.
The New York Times
December 30, 1922
Bishop Hughes Especially Severe on Dry and Auto Law Violations.
Special to The New York Times.
CHICAGO, Dec. 29.—The breaking of laws by so-called good citizens was denounced today by Bishop Edwin H. Hughes of the Methodist Episcopal Church, who spoke at a meeting in Evanston of leaders responsible for more than 30,000 young ministers in the church course of study.
"There are so-called good citizens who break the prohibition laws," he said. "Yes, and there are good people who break the laws in automobile driving. They will watch their chances at street crossings, they will exceed the speed limit if they think no traffic cop is in sight.
"I believe that every good citizen ought to keep every law, whether he likes it or not. It is a deplorable situation when people, who profess to live according to the dictates of a good conscience, will think lightly of violating law, provided they can get away with it."
