embodying the anti-sales tax propos
als presented last week by Dr. Ralph
McDonald, Forsyth, and W. L. Lum-
kin, Franklin, and hearings are to
be held this week for opponents of
the proposals and other featui'es ot
the bill.
Meanwhile, merchants of the state
are not sure just where they stand.
The McDonald-Lumpkin proposals in
clude a sales tax of one-fourth of one
percent on gross retail sales, called
a franchise tax. Merchants are not so
strong for this kind of a tax, as they
’ would have to absorb it, although
they are strong against the sales tax,
which they are required to pass on
I to customers. And, Governor Ehring-
; haus made this remark about the pro-
; posals: "It now seems to be generally
I conceded that a sales tax, in one or
; more forms, is inevitable.”
i The Finance committee decided to
I take time to study the McDonald-
Lumpkin tax plan, which, the propo
nents claim, will bring in $12,361,-
094.98, or some $3,800,000 more than
the $88,700.00 estimated for the gen
eral sales tax. The plan would in
crease corporate franchise taxes $4,-
682,679, the proponents of the meas
ure saying these taxes now are $21,-
359,898. as compared with $28,464,-
689 in 1931. The plan is “to provide
recapture of tax reduction of corpor
ations as a result of the reduction in
ad valorem taxes” when the State
took over full operation of public
schools and roads, the proponents
state.
The McDonald-Lumpkin plan pro
poses four new taxes; six percent im
come tax on dividends of stock in
corporations, $3,086,538; increase in
franchise tax on corporations, $4,-
682,879.75; increased insurance pre
mium taxes, $350,483.04; occupational
license taxes of from $5 to $900 on
individuals making more than $1,-
000 a year, and not now paying
taxes, and taxes on chain theatrers,
chain service stations and merchants,
$4,241,374.20.
Liquor and Bt^er Bills
The liquor and beer bills are now
receiving attention. The Senator John
Sprunt Hill bill for liquor control,
with revenue for welfare and social
work, is scheduled for hearings this
week, and this is sure to bring a
great outpouring of opponents, as
well as proponents. Two beer bills,
one to increase the alcoholic content
to 4 5, the other to make me law' con-
Io»m to federal requirements, were
sent back to committee after a hear
ing last week.

Drivers’ Lit't'nse
The drivers’ license bill, passed by
the Senate unanimously, is due to

this week, or eai'lier.
The Senate Education committee
has named a sub-committee to study
the textbook rental plan embodied
in a bill to provide $2,000,000 as a
revolving fund to purchase books to
start the plan.
The House Salaries and Fees com
mittee favorably reported a bill to in
crease salaries in the lower brackets.
It would increase 20 per cent all sal
aries below $750 a year, and 10 per
cent on all from J750 to $1,500 a
year.
