Loyal Temperance Legion

The children's branch of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, and still active in 2008 - we found the pledge with a link to join: "The Pledge: That I may give my best service to home and country, I promise, God helping me, not to buy, drink, sell, or give alcoholic liquors while I live. From other drugs and tobacco I'll abstain, and never take God's name in vain."
