TAX MAY NOT

SENATE DIS-8ATISFIED WITH
HOUSE AMENDMENT PROVID
ING FOR DIRECT PAYMENT TO
7
PEOPLE.
(BY JOHN C. TRICE.)
Tallahassee, May 27. At one time
there was every assurance this legisla
ture would authorize the return of $30,
000 of automobile tax collected from
the pepole of the state in excess of
the amount justified by the acts of 1917.
according to the interpretation of . the
supreme court. But the prospect la
Hot SO crnrkrl now act it- nnpA W9 9..
j The senate first passed the bill and
sent it over to the house where an
amendment was added providing that
the money should be paid by the comp
troller direct to the people who had
paid it into his - office, and expressly
forbidding it to be paid to any agent
or agency.
The senate refused to accept this
amendment, and asked the house to re
cede. The house refused. A confer
ence committee was appointed, and all
but one man on the committee, .of Bay,
recommended "that the house recede
from its position. This was resisted
by Mr. Futch, of Lake county, the
introducer of the amendment, and the
house stood by him by a large ma
jority. Mr. Busto, of Monroe county, sug
gested that another committee be ap
pointed for a further conference, and
that the senate be asked to meet with
them. This was done. In the selec
tion of the committee the speaker put
Mr. Hamblin, of Hillsborough, and
Mr. Futch, of Lake, on the committee
with Mr. Busto. It is believed to
be well known that Dr. Hamblin and
Mr. Futch are unalterable in . their
views so there is not much prospect
of the committee getting together
assuming that Mr. Busto will favor
the senates attitude.
Some take a different view, but it
is not thought by many others that
the house will refuse to stand by a ma
jority of Its own committee, inasmuch
as it has such fixed views itself. In
the meantime those who have money
coming back to them from the state,
which the state is anvious to pay,
are getting a bit nervous.
HIGH SCHOOL SET
WILL ENTERTAIN
FAREWELL DANCE
The high school set will entertain
with their farewell dance in the San
Carlos auditorium on the evening of
Thursday, May 29.
Music will be furnished by a six
piece Jazz orchestra and dancing will
continue until a late hour. Chaperones
for the evening will be Reverend and
Mrs. John H. Brown, Mrs. W. S.
Brownson and Mrs. J. W. Kehoe. AH
those holding invitations to the Aero
nautic Country Club and high school
dances are cordially invited to attend.
The regular aeronautic dance held in
the auditorium every Friday night has
given way to this high BChool dance.
ENTERTAINMENT
TO HELP THOSE
WHO LOST TOOLS
Ship Carpenter and Caulkers Local.
No. 815, will give an entertainment
at W. O. W. hall, Romana and Bay-1
len streets, the night of June" 5. The
proceeds of the entertainment are to
be used to assist the workmen who
lost tools in the fire at the Bruce
rry Dock company about ten days
ago.
It is conservatively estimated that
the loss sustained by the worker was
more than $1,000. The Ship Carpen
ters' Union has given $150 to help the
men, but this amount is not suffi
cient to make even a good start and
it is for this reason that the enter
tainment is to be given.
BUSY WEEK AT
LOCAL EMPLOYMENT
OFFICE REPORTED
Supervisor McNeir, of the federal
employment bureau, reports a busy
week in his office last week. Seventy
registrations were made, 17 being re
turned Service men. There were sev
en calls for help; 66 cases were re
ferred to prospective employers, 18
being service men; 78 men were
placed in positions, of whom 35 were
service men; 28 of the latter number
were transfers from other points.-.
This service was free to the men
benefited. Local pride is stimulated
by the fact that so good a work Is
being done for the industrial ad
vancement of Pensacola. A report
of the work of this department in
the state of Florida during the past
six months is being handed out by
Mr. McXeir, a copy of which Will be
published.
