Detroit News, May 16, 1931. Sorry about that blotch–I believe it is a tear in the negative of the microfilm. The key word it obscures is “bed”: The cops were about to bust Easter Farmer with a jug of liquid contraband, so she dumped it on a handy pile of absorbency. The law then had to then wring the booze out of Easter’s funky bedsheets to make their case. She was pretty feisty, Easter Farmer. Plus her name was Easter Farmer.
