" ' .'.'N 1 mately twelve ounces," ' In other words, the additional tax on beer is one cent per bottle. Therefore, you'can still buy a lOc bottle of beer for Ic tax for a total of llc-or, n ISc bottle of beer for 15c plus Ic tax for a total of 16c. We bring this to your attention because records show that a substantial increase in ' the cost of beer to consumers sharply decreases the total consumption of beer. Therefore, should prices be increased more than the Ic tax,' the amount of rice grown in Arkansas and used at present in the brewing of beer sold in Arkansas will be materially curtailed. In addition, such a reduction In beer consumption will defeat the purpose of this Consumers Sales Tax, namely, to produce more revenue for the State of Arkansas. Federal revenue will likewise be decreased. We ask, therefore, that the retailers of Arkansas co-operate to protect the Rice Growers and thus protect an important home industry by living up to the spirit of this act which provides for an increase In price of only the Ic additional tax. Such an action on the part of Arkansas retailers will, in turn, protect their customers by permitting them to continue to buy beer at a price that is within reach of their pcckerbooks.
