AUSTIN, Tex., April 2.—(/P)—Debate on the old is.sue of submission of repeal of state prohibition racked the house today with opposing factions determined on a conclusive test over a state monopoly to control sale of hard liquor.  Supporters of the monopoly system strove de.sperately to have It written into a resolution to .submit  repeal to popular vote while repeal chieftain.s gathered tlielr full strength to turn back the effort.  The house witnessed a brilliant display of oratorical fireworks as the plan was alternately supported and denounced. The monopoly scheme was    offered by Repre.senta-  U\e Alfred    Petsch of Fredericks  burg. an anti-pi'ohibitionist, who wa.s joined by Representative George Moffett of Chilllcote a dry leader.  Rcpre.sentative Fred Knetsch of Seguin asvserted a definite assurance again.st open saloons and against the promotion of liquor sales for private profit was neces.'=^ary to a satl.sfactorc .solution of the problem.

Pattenson of Austin asserted the vote .should be taken on a straight repeal resolution.  "Conditions are wor.se now than they were in the days of the open saloon." he said, predicting that the monopoly .scheme would only result in confusion and a bitter fight between rabid prohobitionists and anti-prohibltionlsts.
