WEDNESDAY, MARCH \, 1S3V. THE DAH-T COURIER. rONNEL.L,SVlL.LJH. FA. Outlawing Tax PENNSYLVANIA'S COAL IS On Chains Se£n ] TOPS IN MINERAL VALUES As Consumer Boon PHILADELPHIA, Mar. 1.--Leaders at Pennsylvania consumer and business organizations united today jn hailing the recent decision o£ the Dauphin county court outlawing the Pennsylvania Slate chain store tax. The court threw out the tax, calling | it "unjust, arbitrary, illegal ancii wanting in uniformity." The decision i further s.iict'thut the act under which ' the tax was imposed was "unveason- nble and capricious." The act levied graduated taxes scaling up to S500 per store on the number oE stores above 500 in any chain in tne State. Applauding the ruling as protection for the consumer, Mrs. Gustav Ketterer, director o£ the Philadelphia Consumers' Council, said that it pointed the way for elimination of all similar "unfair" taxes. "The decision ot the Dauphin county court declaring the Pennsylvania chain store tax unconstitutional is a hopeful sign," Mrs. Kelterer nsserted. "On the basis of this decision, consumers have reason to hope that the courts will restrain unfair and discriminatory taxation, which hits directly at the consumers' pocketbooks." Mrs. Ketterer pointed out that any law increasing the cost o£ operations in the retail industry had. to be passed on to consumers. "This is particularly tiue in the case o£ chain stores," she said, "because they operate at a very small margin of profit." The consumer leader added: "In Pennsylvania, appioximalely 1,500,000 families patronize chain stores, according to conservative estimates, about $68,000,000 a year. The Dauphin county decision protects the consumers' pocketbooks." Joining Mrs. Ketterer in applauding the decision was William Free, executive secretary of the Pennsylvania Canncrs Association.
