Americans experimented with many new customs and social traditions during the 1920s. There were new
dances, new kinds of clothes, and some of the most imaginative art and writing ever produced in the United
States. However, in many ways, the 1920s were a conservative time in American life.
(2) One such policy concerned immigration. Many Americans in the 1920s had at least some ties through
blood or marriage to the first Americans who came from Britain, so they considered themselves to be bona
fide Americans. Americans traditionally had welcomed newcomers from such western European countries
as France or Germany. But most of the people arriving in American harbors in the 1920s were from other
parts of Europe. Some citizens became afraid of these millions of immigrants arriving at their shores. Citizens
worried they might steal their jobs. Or they feared the political beliefs of the immigrants. Also, pressure to
control immigration increased following World War I. Congress passed a law that set a limit on how many
people would be allowed to enter from each foreign country. And an even stronger immigration law in 1924
put limits on the number of immigrants from each country, depending on the number of Americans who had
families in that country. For example, the law allowed many immigrants to enter from Germany or France
because many American citizens had families in those countries. But fewer people could come from Italy
or Russia because fewer Americans had family members in those countries. The laws were very difficult to
enforce. But they did succeed in limiting the number of immigrants from specific countries.
(3) A second sign of the conservative feelings in the 1920s was the effort to ban the sale of alcoholic drinks, or
liquor, known as Prohibition. Many of the strongest supporters of Prohibition were conservative religious
Americans living in rural areas. They believed that liquor was evil. In 1919, a law was passed making it
unlawful to produce, sell or transport liquor. But Prohibition failed terribly from the start. There was only a
small force of police to enforce it. And millions of Americans still wanted to drink liquor. Not surprisingly,
thousands of Americans began to import liquor illegally to sell for high prices.


Criminals began to bring liquor across the long, unprotected border with Canada or on fast boats from the Caribbean islands.

At the same time, pirate manufacturers began to produce liquor.

And, in fact, shop owners in cities sold liquor with little interference from local police.

By the middle of the 1920s, it was clear Prohibition laws were a failure,
but the laws were not changed until 1932.
(4) The third sign of conservatism was the effort to ban modern science schoolbooks. Most of those who supported
these efforts were the same conservative rural people. Science became an enemy to these people as it
seemed to challenge the most basic ideas taught in the Bible. In 1925, the conflict burst into a major public
debate over Darwin’s theory of evolution. The attack on Darwin’s ideas was led by William Jennings Bryan,
a rural politician popular among many traditional Americans. He accused scientists of violating God’s words
in the Bible. He called on school officials to ban the teaching of evolution. Some states in the southeastern
part of the country passed laws making it a crime to teach evolutionary theory. In 1925, a science teacher in
Tennessee challenged the state’s new teaching law. The teacher, named John Scopes, taught Darwin’s
ideas of evolution. Officials arrested him and put him on trial. Some of the greatest lawyers rushed to
Tennessee to defend him. America’s most famous lawyer, Clarence Darrow, became the leader of the
Scopes defense team. Bryan and other religious conservatives also rushed to the trial. During the trial,
Clarence Darrow asked Bryan question after question about the Bible and science. He answered the
questions but he showed a great lack of knowledge about modern science. The judge found Scopes guilty,
but a higher court later ruled that Scopes was not guilty. The issue was not really whether one young
teacher was innocent or guilty of breaking a law. It was a struggle between the forces of modern ideas and
those of traditional rural conservatism.

A pilot cannot fly a plane by sight alone. In many conditions, such as flying at night and landing in dense fog,
a pilot must use radar, an alternative way of navigating. Since human eyes are not very good at determining
the speeds of approaching objects, radar can show a pilot how fast nearby planes are moving. The basic
principle of radar is exemplified by what happens when one shouts in a cave. The echo of the sounds
against the walls helps a person determine the size of the cave. With radar, however, the waves are radio
waves instead of sound waves. Radio waves travel at the speed of light, about 300,000 kilometers in one
second. A radar sends out a short burst of radio waves. Then it receives the echoes produced when the
waves bounce off the objects. By determining the time it takes for the echoes to return to the radar set, a
trained technician can determine the distance between the radar set and the objects. The word ‘radar’ , in
fact, gets its name from the term ‘radio detection and ranging’. ‘Ranging’ is the term for the detection of the
distance between an object and the radar set. Besides being of critical importance to pilots, radar is
essential for air traffic control, tracking ships at sea, and for tracking weather systems and storms.
