C.?Afcer rejecting tJiv conference committee report on :h(' Revenue Bill Thursday by a vote So.? *> ?.-? Livos turned around and adopted it Friday, passed it on its second reading: at an after-midnight session early Sutuiday morning by a 49 to 14 vote, making the third reading Monday a matter of form, with opposition dissipated. Tito report rejected was only slightly changed when adopted, the change being safeguards around the "diversion" of 630.000 to 8300,000 of highway funds into the general fund as the equivalent of a three per cent sales tax on gasoline. The money will not be "diverted" unless it is needed and will not be diverted if its use would prevent the full benefit of the Federal funds for highway construction. The diversion is really $1,630,000 or $1,800,000. as against $1,000,000 a year for the present biennium. The report provides for an exemptionless sales tax of three per cent; deduction of only 10 per cent (now IIS) in income taxes for charities, etc.; no tax on individual income from domestic corporations. The "diversion" was apparently the most bitterly opposed item and when the safeguards .were thrown around it, most of the onpositirtn. ppeared. Senate Doubtful Just what the Senate will do with it is uncertain. That body may accept it, although the Senate refused stolidly to levy a tax on all basic foods. It did reduce them once. If it holds out, as some of th~ members are inclined to do, adjournment is in the dim and distant future. If it accepts the report as it was accepted by the House, then a week more should about reach the Nerves on edge were displayed in the House over the report.

Ireic!!, callcd hir."..t ? oka.?Y^, i hoped it would be throw n out the window and its author with it, and volunteered to do the throwing. Tain Bowie resented the attack on the conference committee, saying McDonald had tried to block o.Il moves by his tactics. Representative R. L. Harris, 1933, speaker, said it was publicity he was seeking and said he was tired of publicity stunts of the "flapdoodle I professor." At the ilight meeting it again appeared in the form of the petition | signed by several members to exjpunge the McDonald statement from J the record. Tarn Bowie and Gregg I Cherry suggested that Dr. McDonald withdraw it. He did, but reiterated | his statement, saying he was retracting nothing. It was a tense, time. House Adopts Wet Bill j The House pulled a surprise by 'adopting the Day liquor bill substitute, the third reading Weunesuay by ;a one majority, 52-51, although the {House had been thought to be the dry side. The bill went to the Senate, where its adoption is by no means certain, although the Senate was considered the 'wetter" of the two. It will reach a vote this week, undoubtedly. Meanwhile, the Hill bill is resting on the calendar in the Senate, which has not yet had a wet-dry test vote. The bill provides for a referendum June 8th, State-wide, and if as many as 51 counties vote for liquor sales, it becomes effective, a control board of three members, bi-partisan, to be named bv T J-Jiquor could be sold only in those counties voting it. The control board would make rules and regu-'aticr.?, although the bill limits the sales as to hours, prevents sales on Sundays, election or holidays, and to minors, and places a heavy penalty on selling or having for sale by others. Hope of the proponents is that the Senate will reduce the number of counties to 20 or 25, when it would have more chance of getting over in the election. But the Senate probably will not. Senate Considers Appropriations The Senate started consideration of the Appropriations bill, but decided to wait until the Revenue conference report was disposed of, due to uncerj t&inty as to revenues. Revenue and Budget Bureau officials now say the bills are almost in balance for The first year,, the second depending on increase in business and thus in revenues. If the Senate adopts the Revenue conference report, it is expected to pass the Appropriations bill about as it was parsed by the House. Both 1 mouses nave disposed of many of the i bills on their calendars and can finish all except the Revenue, Appropriations and School Machinery bills in short order. The Highway Patrol Bill, increasing the number to 121, establishing a radio system and takirg tax collections from the patrolmen, already passed by the Senate, nas been passed by the i House and gone back to the Senate | for concurrence ef that body in minor I House amendments. I The Senate refused to concur in the | House amendment reducing the license tag rate to 40 cents a hundred pounds, and a conference committee j j was named. The Senate had voted a 45-cent rate. The rate is now 55 cents, j I The House killed the bill to allow sale I of one-fourth year licenses in the form 1 of a sticker at one-fourth the annual I cost, plus two per cent. 1 "The proposal to submit to the voters proposed changes in the Constitu IY THURSDAY?BOONE, N.
