Zealand smiled on this little island dominion in a special way While there is far more mountain ous territory than arable land there is enough of the latter to meet any foreseeable needs Three islands

tempering additional state revenue The appropria tions and cutting back the sales tax rate from 2M to 2 per cent The biennial Associated Press survey of the legislators shows that despite the financial situa tion the advocates of legalized liquor by the drink can expect to get beat by a narrow margin in the Senate and by about two to one in the Plouse However as is the case on other questions put to the law makers a considerable number declined to state their position at this time The Plouse wrangled and ma neuvered quite a while over the same proposal in the 1955 ses sion and finally it was defeated It was brought up late in the session in the Senate as an amendment to a bill to increase the sales tax but was voted down there also Revenue estimates by propon ents of legalizing the sale of liquor by the drink vary accord ing to the plan proposed But the figure usually cited is million or more per year for the state Local Option This plan contemplates divid ing license fees between the state and the local government which also would have licensing author ity on a local option basis The liquor would have to be pur chased through the State Liquor Control Commission Similar bills have been before every session of the Legislature for the last 10 years But prior to 1955 the state revenue angle was not stressed particularly and the measures didnt get to a vote in either house Herschel Loveless has said that he would sign a workable bill to make it legal to sell liquor by the drink in Iowa Gov Leo Hoegh whom Loveless defeated had said he would work against any such pro posal but probably would sign such a bill if passed 20 Noncommittal Thus far 82 of those who will be members of the 1957 Legisla ture have cooperated in the AP survey Twentyseven said they oppose the proposal although it is being promoted as a revenue A TREE GLOWS IN GOTHAM A 64foot spruce tree lighted by over a candy cane setting in Rockefeller Center followingChristmas

administration is beginning a major policy review from which it is possible there may emerge recommendations for a new pro gram of dollar aid to U S allies in Western Europe Top officials are deeply worried both by the split with Britain and France following the Egyptian crisis and by the impact on their economies of the closing of the Suez Canal and the loss of Middle Eastern oil Some authorities believe this country may be confronted with a need to develop a new program in the pattern of the Marshall Plan to restore the unity and trengthen the economic base of be North Atlantic Alliance None contemplates now any such spend ng for European aid as the four billion dollars a year which the Marshall Plan cost Nixon Speech Vice President Nixon may have had the possibility of some
