Veter ans were questioned from Geor ge’s to the Nqrth Gate. Of ithe fifty-six men questioned, 18 wjere against a bonus in any form, giving a percentage of 32 percent opposed. Thirty-eight of them were for; a bonus making a percentage of 68 percent in sup^ port of the measure. Of these, only two could be found who felt a sales tax should be imposed to pay for the bonus, if “enough people vote it in, I’ll t<iK6 it.” HUGH C. BEHRENS supported his negative stand by saying, “I don’t want a sales tax and we will never be able to pass a natural Individual comment was indica-1 resources tax because their lobby is too strong.” Two meh qualified theif want ing a bonus only if there was a tax on tile petroleum industry- ami sulphur are being piped out of the state when these resources could be used to attract industry here.” Kirkham said further that “these industries are irreplaceable and if they were taxed for ai bonus the tax could be Continued later to support our public schools as an insurance policy iif we should lose our tidelands.” | BOB REED typified the oppos ing group when he'said, “If they award a bonus now, it will only add to the present inflation. The only way I would be for it would be for them to use some measure to j MNP Another man added that if a bonus were given it should go to the families of veteran^ who were kil led as well as the veterans them selves. He also favored a tax on the oil industry. ' j Results ,of the eptirc survey might be summed up something like this: Two out of three veter ans want a bonus; hardly any of them want to pay for it through a sales taij; and everyone seems to be loading >their guns for the natural resource groups—bonus or no bonus.
