Stock Photo Description: The last big offensive, illustration by Rollin Kirby, August 4 1930. The Prohibition symbol, "Mr. Dry," hauls a cannon labeled, "Woodcock." Mr. Dry wears his trademark tattered suit, embellished with military epaulets, a sword and a plume on his top hat. The cartoon relates to President Hoover's last big effort to enforce the seemingly unenforcable prohibition laws. In July of 1930, he appointed Amos W. Woodcock as the new director of prohibition's Enforcement Bureau. Woodcock promised to launch a military-style offensive against prohibition violators, but this time, concentrating on the larger conspiracies and less on the average citizen. He also vowed to invoke the Jones Law to bring about felony convictions and the deportation of alien "rumrunners."
