Jan. 10. — (UP)—Legislation re-quiring Arkansas' C wholesale liquor drillers to stale licenses totaling at Hpit $1.000,000 a year will he introduced by Sen. Ernest Mancr o' Hot springs when the 50th General Assembly convenes here on Monday. However, the measure will not be actively pushed unless an earlier proposal lo place the .stale in the wholesale liquor business is defcalcd. "I'm inclined to i;o nloiiK willi Son. miller tu. J. Butler of Forrest City) in his plan to place Arkansas in the wholesale liquor business." said Mancr. "If it mils, then I'll bring my bill out on the floor. Butler recently announced Unit he would introduce legislation wnirfi would allow Arkansas to set "!> a monopoly in the wholesaling 0[ liquor. He argued that such a I'tiin would bring in some $10,000,000 a year to the slate, allow better regulation of retail liquor outlets, and slow down the move toward prohibition in the state. Two oilier .senators and five members of the, of Kepresenlalives have publicly announced support of .sonic such plan. Mancr explained today that his Plons calls for a privilege lax on grass profits of wholesalers, to be paid when the dealer pays his $100 annual state license lee." The proposal will be in the form of a license, or privilege tax ns the Hot • 'priiiKs senator explained that nn miccss profits tax would be un- ^Jiiiistitutiona! in Arkansas. There are six wholesale liquor dealers in Arkansas, two of which have branch houses, who would be affected by cither Butter's or Mailer's measure. Five are located in tittle Tiock and one jn Fort Snii'h Branches of two of the capital city fnnns are .situated in Fort Smith and Pine Bluff.

The new president spoke briefly, following the installation, and the congregation sang "Send the Light" uefore dismissed by R. L. Sanders. Luxor a News Ihe revenue under Maner'.s propos- i] would be much higher. Mancr said he originally intended for all revenue so derived to go to the slate Hospital for Nervous Diseases, but admitted that he °ht have to "cut in" the schools rl other institutions in order to gain needed .support. And he expects his proposal to have a better chance of passage than the state monopoly because, ns hc explained. "the drys can vole for my hill." Earlier, the Hot Springs senator announced that hc would seek continuation of a special 38 cent n gallon tax on liquor, with the revenue being diverted to the hospital.
