2000000 needy residents Prom unofficial sources today came indications that state leaders are studying the probable returns of a state levy on beer as a means of lead ing them out of their relief fund dilemma Both Governor Pinchot and Re publican state organization leaders aiparently are agreed that 520000000 shall be appropriated for unemploy ment relief for the biennium begin ning June 1 Where they differ is on the means by which this money shall be raised A series of conferences failed to break the deadlock The governor remained steadfast for his tax centralization program He claimed that by permitting the state department of revenue to col lect personal s property inheritance and mercantile taxes and by assess ing foreign corporations raising the 520000000 is just like finding money The organization leaders differ from the governors plan and his estimates of the revenue it would raise They are committed to a program that vprovides that relief be financed from ordinary revenues of the state that pay cuts and other economies be ef fected to leave a large surplus in the treasury and that steps be taken to increase sjate revenues without con tinuation of the sales tax It is understood the leaders will grant Pinchot part of his tax cen tralization plan but their compro mise would effect only the provisions to collect personal property taxes and to change the assessment on foreign corporations The governor estimates new bien nial revenues of about from these two phases of his pro gram At this point the proposed beer tax entered the picture Its proponents GEORGE BERNARD
