Major Tyler opposed the old-age pension proposal, however, because, as he truthfully said, "Thc control of liquor is a social experiment .and the revenue received is secondary." Thc 'Gazette then made this comment: t "Many states, instead of turning I liquor income into their general ' revenue funds as Major Tyler would have Virginia continue to do. at once dedicated it to pur- • poses having a strong popular ap- i peal. j "This former Virginia liquor ad- j ministrator realizes that the fun- I damcntal purpose of control laws | should be social, to do all that j laws can do to keep evils and I abuses out of the liquor traffic i and make -conditions as tiond us i they can be made in states where I liquor is legally sold. He reiil- izcs that after experience Vir- i ginia may find it desirable to give up its state»owncd 'liquor stores for some other system or even entirely banish legal liquor once more.
