Ferguson today recommended to the Texas legislature the immediate repeal of the state prohibition law and enactment of a two per cent general retail sales (ax as the most practical' method of financing governmental operations. Governor Ferguson urged that a speedy .course be followed to obtain badly needed revenues from liquor taxes. The state prohibition amendment, she stated, is a "stupendous failure" and fortunately provided for its own destruction. Under her plan persons desiring to deal' intoxicant^ would pay a fine which,' in' effect, would be a llcerjse to operate for one year. The question is no longer one of prohibition but. one of legal or illegal llqiior, she said, The governor classified taxation as the most serious problem confronting the legislature. Although she gave a resume of the financial activities of her administration, most of her message dealt with this subject. She reported a net reduc- ;ion in tlie deficit during her administration of $5,578,696 and with provision for obligations totalling approximately $5,000,000, including nterest and sinking fund on relief bonds, other state bonds, pink boll worm payments, national guard deficiency and buildings and equipment at eleemosnary institutions. The total deficit in the three main funds at the end of the fiscal year August 31, 1935, was estimated at $15,329,182. The governor asked the hearty cooperation of the legislature in efpfrts of President Roosevelt toward national recovery. No specific mention was made of the outgoing administration's attitude toward Governor-Elect James V. Allred. He is bitterly opposed to a general sales tax. To wait for submission of repeal of state prohibition and the enactment of enabling laws would entail a delay that would cost the state approximately $15,000,000 in taxes, the governor said. "It is estimated that this tax would produce $5,000,000 a year and if we wait until the legislature submits the question and then wait until the next legislature meets two years from now and then spend the greater part of another year in de- terming what law will be passed it will be three years before any revenue can be obtained from that source and in the meantime the bootlegger will have profited -by escaping taxation of $15,000,000— enough to pay the present de- "I used'to b&*atpromblti6iilst myself but my faith in the proppsition has been'much shaken by the attempts to enforce the* noble experiment. It seems to me now that the question is no longer one of prohibition or anti-prohibition but it is simply a question of whether we will have legal liquor with taxes or bootleg liquor without taxes. "In the first place," the governor said, "I would levy a general sales tax of not exceeding two per cent upon commercial purchases to take care of all needs of the state. From best estimates available this tax would pay all expenses of the state government and relieve all real estate of ad valorem taxes. Tlie only ad valorem taxes remaining would be that collected by counties and other subdivisions of the state. This tax, it occurs to me, is fair and equitable. In the first place it would require every citizen who is able to pay to do his p&rt for the support of the government. Most Coughs Demano! Creomulsion Don't Jet ithem get a strangle hold.

STEVENSON WANTS TO COOPERATE WITH ALLRED AUSTIN, Jan. 9 (#>)—Final organization was the chief business Of the forty-fourth legislature today as leaders moved swiftly to heal any Wounds caused by the bitter contest for speaker of the house of representatives. The smashing victory of the veteran ranchman and former cowboy, Coke Stevenson of Junction, over young Bob Calvert of Hillsboro by a vote of 80 to 68, remained the absorbing topic of conversation but cool headed members worked to make tht tight definitely a thing of the past. Already signs appeared of deeper interest in tlie important legislation slated for introduction and expected to make the session one of the most momentous In the history of the state. There was a discussion of means to liquidate the state's deficit of $15,000,000, submission of state prohibition repeal, regulating public Utilities, repealing the law permitting gambling on Imrse races and provid- all subjects slated for early attention and no liuonious debate. I.nmlly Discounted. The messages of Governor Miriam A. Ferguscjn, retiring 1 after two years as chief executive, and James V. Allred, to be inaugurated on Jan. 15, likewise drew interested speculation. Nevertheless, the immediate business was to complete organization, appoint joint committees of both houses to canvass the election returns for governor and lieutenant governor and to plan the Inauguration, and name members of the 36 senate and the 38 house standing committees. On the first day of the session, the senate unanimously elected Senator Ken Regan president pro tern- pore and Bob Barker secretary. Lieutenant Governor Edgar E. Witt of Waco presided in the senate, pending the introduction of Walter F. Woodul of Houston January 15, and Secretary of State W. W. Heath, performed a similar function in the house. Observers were inclined to discotil the possibility of an adverse effect by the outcome of the speakcrship race on the legislative program of Mr. Allred, who actively supported Cnlvert. In the past animosities engendered by similar contests usually died out, and Stevenson publicly announced a desire to cooperate with the new adm'nistration. Calvcrt to Pick Post. Even before Allred congratulated Stevenson on his victory, saying ho hoped It would be for the best interests of the state, Stevenson said he tendered his "sincere efforts to the incoming administration and to departments of government. were friends of Allred and strong supporters of his program. TliiM-c was a similar inclination to discount charges made in the heat of the spenkership contest that foimer Governor James E. Ferguson wculcl cxetf-ise a dominant influence In the hcuse of representatives. While Mr. Ferguson had expressed hope fclevenson would win, he took no naive part in the contest. Sievtnson himself stated that "in any office ought to be man enough not to be dictated to." In the uppomlinent of committees Sevenson said n.embers of the house as in the past, would have ready access to conferences with him and full freHtioni to express their prcf- e.cnces. If ciiftom is followed, Cal- vedt will be given his choice of comiTii'ters on which serve and will ba named cnahmar. of one of the most important. Born In Lug Cabin. Tho new speaker is distinctly a man "come up from the ranks." Born in a log cabin 46 years ago, in Mason county, near the Kimble county line, Stevenson attended school in country districts only three ypars. After working as a cowboy, he later became a bookkeeper in a Junction bank, then rose to be cashier, and subsequently took up the study of law. He hns served as county attorney and county judge of Kimble county and represented his district for four terms in the legislature. He obtains his, when not in Austin, riding about his 7,000-acre ranch and likes few things better than hunting deer. Tall, slow-talking, pipe smoking, he has been called the Abraham Lincoln of Texas politics. He is married and has one grown son. During legislative sessions, Mrs. Stevenson resides with him in the speaker's quarters at the rear of the house chamber, as she says, "to watch over him."
