[ / - SIX WAYS TO SPEND LIQUOR PROFITS Two Measures Both Favor Big Building Programs for State. By GEORGE MILLS (Iowa Daily Press Bureau) DES MOINES--Two new ways of spending Iowa's $1,000,000 plus annual liquor profits, both of them building programs, are headed for slate legislative hoppers. Senator William S. Beardsley of New Virginia, republican floor leader in the upper house, was preparing a measure allocating $1,000,000 liquor earnings for a biennial building program at the slate's insanity hospitals, and other institutions under the board of control. Meanwhile, another m e a s u r e was being drawn up to allocate between $2,000,000 and $3,000,000 in future liquor profits for a state office building. Sponsors of the latter measure said the bill will not appear in the legislature for the next week or 10 days. Has No Objection. Beardsley said he would have no objection to the latter measur" if the institutional building program was given first call on liquor profits. He was introducing the measure, h e said, to avoid levying of additional property taxes for state purposes. The senator also expressed an opinion that federal-financing of $1,000,000 could be obtained to .'match the state, appropriation. Either WPA or PWA might provide the additional money needed he said. I Tile board of control has filed askings with the state comptroller 101 slightly more than $2,000000 for the coming biennium to re' Iieve overcrowding at several institutions by building new structures and improving and enlarging some of the old ones. The askings for this purpose were given the approval of Gov.. Nelson u. Kraschel in his annual message. Acceptance Doubtful. Both measures assume that the present legislature will, not alter materially the present state liquor ^"^olsetup. In fact, should both bills be accepted by the legislature, the liquor control system with its 135 stores, would be aT- sured an existence of three or four more years. Acceptance of both programs might be doubtful however, ln that another legislature will convene two years hence be- foie a second program could be completed. . Proponents of the office building plan are said to be considering recommending financing the building on revenue bonds, to be paid off with liquor profits. A to house departments for which there is no room in stale property. $148,991 Paid for Freight on Liquor .
