April I — iINS! — Virtually certain that the State Legislature will have nothing on the statute books to control the sale of beer on April 7. municipal officials today scrutinized laws for loopholes that might give them local regulation. Ostensibly beer control is their purpose. but revenue is their direct aim. Considering the turmoil into which the legalization of beer has thrown the general assembly, municipal officials are desirous of geting full benefit of revenues that otherwise will be lost until the state enacts a regulatory measure. Moreover, the revenue: “prize” might be extended to considerable size because of the three-cornered battle in the assembly. Gov. Gifford Pinchot has warned legislators that any measure not in accordance with his bill will be vetoed. Rep. Clinton A. Sowers, organization Republican of Philadelphia, has, defied this threat with a bill embodying his own ideas. Democrats are reported to be considering the intro-; duction of a measure entirely differ-{ ent from the others. Indications are that a solution may be a matter of weeks. During this period, beer can be sold on an unrestricted basis as far as the state I itself is concerned. But there is one I '"toad open to municipal regulation. This power rests it) the state law which permits political subdivisions to tax anything not taxed by the state. Without state control, beer will fall into this category. As soon as the general assembly plusses a reg- ; ulatory bill, which is signed by the 1 governor, the local taxes would automatically cease. While the state permits munieipali-. ties to levy such a tax, it was gen George F. Hill, register of wills of Delaware county, who will get §38,100 from the huge Dorrancc estate laves paid to Pennsylvania.
