STATE MAV USE BEER TAX FOR REI,IEF NEEDS
One of Many Sources Seen as Possibility to Raise $20,000,000
Leaders at Odds With Gov. Pinchot on Methods; Agree on Amount
HARRISBURG. Pa March 24— (UP)—Revenue derived from a beer tax may feed Pennsylvania’s 2.000,000 needy residents.
From unofficial sources today came indications that state leaders are studying the probable returns of a stale levy on beer as a means of leading them out of their relief fund dilemma.
Both Governor Pinchot and Republican state organization leaders ai parent Iv ire agreed that $20,000,000 shall be appropriated for unemployment relief for the biennium beginning June I.
Where they differ is on the means by which this money shall be raised A series of conferences failed to break the deadlock.
The governor remained steadfast for his tax centralization program. He claimed that by permitting the state department of revenue to collect personal property, inheritance,; and mercantile taxes and by assess-; ing foreign corporations, raising the $20,000,000 is "just like finding money."
The organization leaders differ from the governor's plan and his estimates! of the revenue it would raise. They are committed to a program that provides that relief be financed from ordinary revenues of the state; that pay cuts and other economies be ef-' footed to leave a large .surplus in the treasury, and that steps be taken to increase state revenues without continuation of the sales tax.
It is understood the leaders xviii grant Pinchot. part of his tax centralization plan, but their compromise would effect only the provisions lo collect personal property taxes and to change the assessment on foreign corporations.
The governor estimates new biennial revenues of about $16,000,000 from these two phases of his program.
At this point the proposed beer tax entered the picture. Its proponents
