WASHINGTON, Dec. 8 IUP) — President Roosevelt's interdeparl- ental'committee on alcohol control today recommended that congress levy a tax if $2£0 a gallon on distilled spirits. . The recommendation was made In a report to the house ways and means committee in'which tlic administration group estimated that liquor revenue under their proposed tax plan would bring in more than $500,000.000 annually. The president's group proposed that part of the revenue be shared' with states under a plan by which states would forego direct gallonagc taxes on liquor. The report also provides for new import duties which would provide President Roosevelt with a trade ""bargaining weapon. The interde- parttncnta! committee said that its recommendations were designed to discourage consumption of hard liquor In ccntrast with light wines and beer. The proposed tax of -*2.60, the committee estimated, would bring in next year, if business is good, a revenue of $337.000,000 alone. While the committee believed its suggested tax would drive ou the bootlegger it considered that at the pome time the proposals would brin? In the largest possible amount of liquor revenue. Several members of the house ways and means committee are in the belief that if whisky is to sell for $1.50 a quart the tax should be under $2 a gallon/ • -^ ;.-.-•> ' \ M»ry*Ewrice Lay son*: "•-• Heads Poll of Honor Hate Maddened Texans IVIlcd Tress.
