As the Credwells exited their coach, ladies of the Woman’s Christian Temperance League marched outside the Casino’s entrance, chanting and shouting against the ills of alcohol. Considering the amount of alcohol that was to be consumed at this locals gala, it was somewhat surprising to see such a low turnout. Although Beth was a suffragette, she did not condemn alcohol like many of her sisters. Most of the other revelers seemed to agree since many milled outside in well-to-do fashions ignoring the women. Beth, too, felt no shame whatsoever in walking right past them into the bustling Neptune Casino.
