HARRISBURG. Pa. May 2.—<UP>
—Legislation placing Deer-retailing in J Pennsylvania under the same Keens- I mg system as "hunting and dog-own- \ mg permits'' came before the Penn- 1 Sylvania legislature todav for final ' consideration.
The House had on its third reading I calendar the McClure bill already approved by the Senate and giving county treasurers authority to issue I wo kinds of permits to sell 3 2 beer one to distributors and the other to I retailers.
Distributors are persons licensed j to sell beer for drinking off the prem- I mrs. Retailers are those permitted I to serve beer at tables or lunrh bars I in hotels, clubs or bona fide eating . places. Local option Is provided on I the "retailer'* provision, but not on I I Ik "(ii tribute: ' Ga: ification Bowing permits would be handled by the I State Alcohol Permit Board j
While the House took up the con-1 trol measure for final action, the I Senate had on its second reading calendar the tax bill placing a levy of $1.24 on every barrel of beer Revenue experts estimated the tax would ploduce $10 000 000 biennially for the state the money to be used for unemployment relief The relief question remained static for the second straight week with the agreement to raise $45,000,000 standing unchanged Three bills aflerting $8 OOO OOO in bank tax revenue forming part of the relief fund program were on the Senate calendar for final action after minor amendments.
While Governor Pinchot controlled the beer and relief situations, the Republican State organization was brewing the ingredients for investigations of hLs insurance, property and supplies, banking, and education departments and of relief expenditures Resolutions for the firs! two in-
