AUSTIN, May House of the Texas Legislature Monday voted 73 to 51 against consider- ing a bill to levy a sales tax. The bill was brought before the House on the suspension of Representative Harold Kay ton of San Antonio, its author. Kay- ton said lie would make another effort to have the bill consider- ed, although the chances of its being passed were generally re- garded as doubtful. It proposed to !evy a tax of 2 per cent on sales of all com- modities except food. Kayton said the bill was dead unless the house permitted it to be taken up out of order. It would be impossible for the bill to be reached on the regular cal- endar in the remaining days of the session because of its high number, he said.
