Friday, April 7, 1933

We did not get to swim today. I was in the Science play up at school.

Happy Days - April 7, 1933 - Men's T-Shirt
Although it would be another eight months before Prohibition was officially repealed,
April 7, 1933, was a red-letter day for beer drinkers. President Roosevelt's signature repealed
the Volstead Act, legalizing 3.2 percent beer. It also paved the way for the December ratification
of the 21st Amendment, which repealed the 18th Amendment and ended Prohibition altogether.
