Initiative 13 was presented to the voters in the November 2, 1948, general election. It would have prevented selling alcohol by the drink. According to the advertisement, "it would mean a return to the speakeasy, the bootlegger, the gangster -- and, finally, state-wide PROHIBITION!" The initiative did not pass.
On the reverse side of the advertisement are political ads for Payson Peterson for Congressman and Arthur Langlie for Governor. Langlie won his race, and Peterson was defeated.
