SUNDAY SPORTS. SEE COMPROMISE tragedy BEER AND RELIEF IN CONFERENCE r~
SPUR ASSEMBLY OVER KICK IN BEER
Pressure Exerted for Advancing Problems as Session Meets
McClure Repeal Convention Measure Meets Opposition
HARRISBURG, Pa. March 20— (UPi—Sunday baseball and beer stood stubbornly today in the middle of a legislative track state leaders wanted cleared for unemployment relief and governmental economy.
Pressure for advancing all four problems bore down heavily on the State Legislature 8S it gathered to begin the twelfth week of the 1933
The Sunday baseball question dominated both Houses. In the Senate. Sen John J. McClure. Delaware county, proposed to ask reconsideration of the vote by which the Senate defeated the Schwartz Sunday sports measure. McClure then planned to offer amendments to provide for state-wide and local referenda on the question. Should his move succeed, the bill would be voted on final passage again on Tuesday. In the House the Steedle bill providing for both sports and motion pictures on Sunday was up for third reading.
Beer was represented in two actions. The House had before it the
Senate Agrees to Conference With House on Disputed P. C. of Alcohol
Wine May lie Eliminated to Re Passed in Separate Rill
WASHINGTON. March 20 UP' —Tile Senate agreed today to a conference with the House on controversal points in the beer-wine bill.
Having no business to transact, the Senate recessed until 3 p. rn. Chairman Harrison, of the Senate conferees, said they would meet immediately in an effort to have a report ready for both Houses by that hour.
As the day progressed, serious obstacles developed to delay final action on the measure It was still hoped, however. that President Roosevelt would be able to sign the bill today, thus making beer legal on April 4
Leaders in both Houses were confident that conferees could agree today on a compromise between the 3.2 per cent. House beer bill and the Senate measure to reduce the percentage to 3 05, legalize wine and fruit juices and forbid sale or Rift of the beverages to persons under 16 years of age.
But House rules provide that a conference report must lie over one

SENATE SEATS ARE R AISED IN NUM RER
WASHINGTON, March 20—<UP> — Senators besieged by friends for seats in the gallery partially solved their problem today by adding to the block of seats reserved for them a .section of the gallery heretofore allotted for the public.
the special session.
Rainey predicted final congressional action by tomorrow at the latest.
Fifteen days must elapse after President Roosevelt signs the bill before the legalized beverages can be I sold legally.
Chairman Harrison, of the Senate finance committee, moved that the Senate agree to the conference and insist on its own amendments—a formality which does not necessarily mean that the Senate conferees will refuse to recede. Vice President Garner appointed Harrison and Senators Walsh, Dem.. Mass., King, Dem , Utah. Reed, Repn., Pa., and Codens. Repn.. Mich., to represent the Senate in the conference.
Aside from the alcoholic ‘‘strength’’ to be legalized, the two branches also disputed the Senate’s action in legalizing wine and banning sale of the legalized beverages to minors. Ad-! ministration leaders believed wines might be eliminated from the bill bo-I cause California wine-growers protested against their inclusion unless an alcoholic content of ll per cent, were authorized. The wine-growers apparently hope to get a separate wine bill enacted later.

Pennsylvania will receive $14,500,000 inheritance taxes from the estate of the late Dr John T Dorrance, soup king. Attorney General William A. Schnader announced today.
The payment will be made immediately, the attorney general said, under an agreement with the attorneys for the estate
An original judgment against the Dorrance estate fixed the sum due the commonwealth at $17,000,000, but counsel for the estate have agreed to give the state a bond to cover any additional taxes above the $14,500,000 which they will pay.
The agreement announced today represents a legal victory for Schnader who fought the ease through various state courts to the Supreme Court of the United States.
Executors of the estate of the late president of the CampljeU Soup Company. of Camden, N J. contended that, his legal residence was in New Jersey, while Pennsylvania authorities insisted he maintained his home in Radnor, this county.
New .Kersey, aiding attorneys for the estate, carried an appeal to the j ti S. Supreme Court, which ruled I that Dorm ace's legal residence was in Pennsylvania.
