BOOZE SALE IS BIG ISSUE Browne Says Its Respon- sible For Legislative Log Jam By JIIMIE K. BROWNE OLYMPIA, Feb. 27 As the legislative session enters upon its final days, with one of the great- est log-jams of prospective legis- lation ever seen her% it is just beginning to seep in that the sub ject of-serving drinks of liquor by the glass has been the most controversial question of the day and has been, to a certain extent, one of the key logs in the jam. A survey of the state shows that the majority of the voters are perfectly satisfied with state liquor control as it is. They do not want any change at this time. Many feel and this is a major- ity m that any change would not help either those who would lib- eralize the law or those who would tighten it. Under the cocktail bill it simply means that the legislature would attempt to benefit about 500 peo- ple at the expense of several hund- red thousand. It is doubtful if the liquor control board would issue more than 50,0 licenses under any kind of bill unless forced to do so by legislation. Liquor Shortage Another thing. At the present time there is a nation-wide short- age of liquor. All states are ra- tioned. The individual is rationed in this state. Liquor is not avail- able. Hence, under existing con- ditons, if the state should deem it advisable to permit the sale of liquor by the drink and place any kind of license upon permission to do this, the state must then furnish the retailer liquor to sell. It means that the seller by the drink would be unable to obtain all desired, prices would be high and th individual would be un- able to buy liquor at the liquor stores. These would not have en- ough to meet even the rationed bottle demands. Hence the store purchasers would be left out and the reaction would be such that any move to bring about prohLbif tion would find enought disgrunt - led people to vote Washington in- to a prohibition state again. Would Increase Prices At the same time it would cost the consumer so much more than it does now that greater encour- agement would be ofgered to the illicit distillery and te bootleg- ger. Cocktail bars unable to meet the demand would be more inclin- ed to buy on the black market and would. The same is true of the individual. So, instead "of aid- ing temperance it would only create more drunkeness and the sale of more home-made liquors. The state, the counties and the ctles would all find it much too costly in loss of revenues and the increased cost of policing. The boys in .service, when they return home, would be among the, first to take up the fighagainst the entire program. They will bil- reply resent any attempt to change the set-up without their,knowledge or consent. These are but a few reasons why the entire program is out of step at this time with both the i, people and the conditions. Encourage Industry The State Federation of Labor has taken vigorous issue with the labor council lobby here. The State Fderation knows and ap- preciates the fact tha: industry can only stand a certain degree of drain upon its income ar/d re- sources and when this is passed, business and industry will then be forced to stop. The battle has come up over a proposal to increase and change the industrial compensation act, and the State Federation has gone on record against it. The Federa- tion was largely responsible for the defeat of the so-called "Little Wagner Act" proposed by the la- bor council. James a Taylor. the president of the Federation, was most outspoken and bitter in his denunciation of the proposed bill and as a result the labor lobby called in its pressure groups and slid away from it. This was the opening gun of the battle. Now Taylor and his forces are gun- ning for and will get the com- pensation act. Booings WOuld Move Representatives of Booings, and other- large industries, appeared before labor committees here and frankly laid down their cards. They informed the legislators that if it was found to be too costly to manufacture in this state in competition with other states, Boeing would znove to one of their plants outside of Washing- ton, and the huge payroll here "would be lost to the state. It is simply a question of being per- mitted to stay in the state and operate at a profit or being tax ed out of the state. There are numerous industrial enterprises here now. or pros- pective, watching this session. If bills enacted will increase cost of doing business here too much, in- dustry will go elsewhere and when it moves out, jobs disappear at the same time. Opposes Superintendent The legislature has served no- tice in: the educational fights that it has become somewhat fed up on dictation from these groups and doesn't like the attitude of the state superintendent of pub- lic instruction and the strong, rather ill-advised lobby she has created and kept at her beck and call to bring pressure upon mem- bers. The straw that broke the cam- el's back was the consolidation measure enacted in 1941, and which was repealed by the House last week. This measure was used as a threat and a club along with the fact that the state superin- tendent was inclined, members charged, to use school funds to force her wishes and desires up- on the small,or districts.
