I have a question and it has been causing a controversy All through my life about the alcohol Content of Beer. I have heard that Beer sold in North Carolina has Only 3.2 per cent alcohol whereas in Virginia it might go As High As 4 to i per cent. Why is there a difference in the alcohol Content also Why is it that Beer sold at military installations has for military use Only Quot stamped in the cans and what is the Content of alcohol in this Type. What is the difference in draft and regular Beer and the difference in malt lager and regular Beer of you would answer these questions it would be a let of help to me. Anon. A. The alcohol Content varies in different states in North Carolina malt beverages Beer lager Beer malt liquor ale Porter and other brewed or fermented beverages cannot contain More than 5 per cent of alcohol by weight. Normally it contains 42 per cent. According to the state Abc Law enforcement officer Beer sold on military installation contains 3.2 per cent. There Are regulations to relieve resident manufacturers wholesale distributors and importers from the liability of paying the excise by levied and imposed on malt beverages that Are intended to be sold and Are thereafter sold to military personnel. Such beverages Are identified by placing a a for military use Only on the Label Crown can end or kegs. A a lager Beer is a class designation Given to a proximately 90 per cent of the Beer produced in this country according to information received from d. Newman of the Joseph Schlitz brewing company of Milwaukee. It is usually produced by Means of Quot Bottom fermentation a that is the yeast settles to the Bottom during fermentation at a relatively Low temperature. Lager comes from the German a a lager no meaning to store. The monks of the seventh Century found that their Beer kept better if stored in Mountain caves during the summer. It mellowed after standing for a time so the practice of aging Beer grew from their discovery. Many changes in brewing packaging and marketing technology have occurred and methods other than pasteurization Are used to assure adequate shelf life. Flash pasteurization in bulk permits Brewers to pasteurized Keg Beer As Well As bottled or canned Beer so now pasteurization is no longer a distinguishing characteristic Between Beer served on draft and that available in a bottle or can. Because of these changes the alcohol and tobacco tax division has set these guidelines pertaining to Labelling and advertising Beer packaged in a Container of a capacity of one gallon or More the contents of which Are to be drawn off through a tap or similar device May be described As a a draft Beer whether the Beer has Deer pasteurized sterile filtered and aseptically filled or unpasteurized and requiring refrigeration for preservation. Beer packaged in the customary bottles and cans May also be described As Quot draft Beer if the Beer is unpasteurized and requires refrigeration or if the Beer has been sterile filtered and aseptically filled but not pasteurized. Beer packaged in the usual bottles and cans May not be described As Quot draft Beer if the Beer has been pasteurized although no objection is made to the use of descriptive wording such As Quot draft brewed a etc., provided the fact it is pasteurized is conspicuously printed on the Label close to the comparative expression. Supreme court today granted All defendants who face a possible jail term the right to be represented by a lawyer. The 7 to 2 decision delivered by Justice William 0. Douglas guarantees a lawyers help to millions of poor people who Are prosecuted for Petty offences and misdemeanours. Less than half the states now Supply free lawyers to defendants in All trials that could Lead to a jail term. The historic ruling an expansion of past sixth amendment decisions will necessarily change trial practices in those states. Chief Justice Warren e. Burger who agreed with Douglas said he was confident the Legal profession would meet the Quot Large new burdens placed upon it. Justices Lewis f. Powell and William h. Rehnquist the courts freshman members of Sion although they did not dissected to the sweep of the Deci sent in a technical sense. They said the court should have ruled there is a right to a lawyer Only when a a necessary to assure a fair Back in 1963 a Case known As Gideon v. Wainwright first Laid the principle that a Man on trial for Quot serious offence so has the right to a lawyer and that if he cannot afford one the state must Supply counsel. Until then the sixth amendment had been interpreted As necessitating lawyers Only in capital offence so when there was a Chance of a death sentence. Subsequently the court granted the right to a free lawyer when the jail term could be six months or More. Today a decision wipes out the distinction Between felonies and misdemeanours for Petty offences so far As this right is concerned. Unless a defendant knowingly and intelligently waives a lawyers help he cannot be sent to prison Quot for any offence whether classified As Petty Misdemeanour or felony unless he was represented by counsel at his trial a Douglas wrote. Senate finance committee meets today to decide How to raise the Money to for social Security increases it approved for 27 million persons. Chairman Russell b. Long a la., said the decisions on the higher taxes needed to finance the benefits would wrap up the committee s work on the massive social Security welfare Reform Bill. However the committee s staff is expected to take an estimated two weeks to draft the legislation before it is ready for floor debate. The panel last week voted to include a to per cent across the Board boost in social Security in the Bill after rejecting a 20 per cent boost on a 7-7 tie vote. But Long who favored 20 per cent said that 44 senators now support the higher percentage and it is almost certain to be raised when the Bill reaches the floor. Chances appear Good that a 20 per cent hike in benefits will be in the final Bill sent to president Nixon since rep. Wilbur d. Mills d-ark., who will head the House conferees has urged that figure. Nixon has recommended that Congress limit the hike to s per cent. The Senate committee s version of the legislation Calls for annual Cost of living raises in payments if the Price Index advances 3 per cent a year. Under present Law the maximum social Security tax for a worker is $440.00, obtained by multiplying the s.2 per cent rate times the $9jnk wage base. This is scheduled to go up to $500.50 next year when the base will remain at $9,000 but the rate will Advance to 5.45 per cent. The amount paid by the worker is matched by his employer. The pending Bill As it passed the House last year would boost the top tax in 1973 to $550.00. It would do this by raising to $10,-200 the amount of annual earnings subject to tax although the rate would be increased Only to 5.4 per cent instead of the 5.45 per cent provided by the present Law. Supreme court rules clubs can bar negro guests Washington a the supreme court today upheld the right of private clubs to exclude negroes As guests. The 6 to 3 decision was delivered by freshman Justice William h. Rehnquist. It went against a Black brought As a guest to the Moose Lodge in Harrisburg a. The Black Leroy Irvis the majority Leader of the Pennsylvania House contended that since the club held a liquor License from the state it could not exclude Blacks As members or As guests. Today a decision dealt directly with the exclusion of Blacks As guests and not with their exclusion As members. Map shows course of rapid Creek through flood stricken City a wire photo Rehnquist said Irvis could not Challenge the lodges All White membership policy since he had never applied for membership but had Only been brought to the club As a guest. Rehnquist said the clubs refusal to serve negroes does not violate the 14th amendment even though the Moose Lodge gets its liquor License through the state. Quot since state furnished services include such necessities of life As electricity water and police and fire Protection such a holding would utterly emasculate the distinction Between private As distinguished from state conduct a he said. Chief Justice Warren e. Burger and justices Harry a Blackmun and Lewis f. Powell the three other Nixon administration appointees lined up with Rehnquist a former assistant attorney general. Justices Potter Stewart and Byron r. White also were in the majority. Dissenting were justices William o. Douglas William j. Brennan jr., and thur Gnavi Marshall the courts Only negro member. Brennan said Pennsylvania a liquor regulations plainly intertwined the state with the operation of the lodges bar in a Sig so clubs on Page 2a flood death toll reaches 208 rail lines hit two migs bagged High Cost of Tennis q.
