Women to Battle Against Coca Cola, 1904

From the Charlotte Observer, as reprinted in the Watauga Democrat, March 3, 1904.
The Woman’s Club decided at a meeting held yesterday to begin a formal campaign against coca cola. “We are very much in earnest in the matter,” said one of the clever, energetic members of the club yesterday, “and our fight will be for the protection of both men and women an especially of young people. We are sure that the drink is hurtful and everybody knows that it is injuring a large number of people in this city.”
