dis mayed by noncnactmrm of beer controltaxation legislation arc just as anxious for vetoproof legislation as are the Commonwealths needy and will be the beneficiaries And as an underlying accompani

enactment wiJl cut into their profits which now un taxed are all velvet Several brewers pointed out that in some quarters the assertion has been voiced that the brewers them selves arc complacently acquiescent in the delay of legislation Each brewer queried on this phase of the situation emphatically foreswore any such attitude Thus Fred C Elussman president of the Pittsburgh Brewery said he was
