State Liquor
Ban Discussed
Sunday Sale Claimed
Harmful to War Effort
LANSING, March 18.-UP)-A spir-
ited, two-hour debate on the effect of
liquor on Michigan's war effort de-
veloped today during a public hearing
by the House liquor committee on a
Senate bill to ban Sunday sale of
beer and wine.
Chairman Ural S. Acker, Kalama-
zoo Republican, said his group would
meet tomorrow morning to act on
all pending liquor legislation in the
house. Acker, who switched the hear-
ing from a committee room to the
House chamber when more than 100
persons appeared for the meeting,
several times nipped budding skirm-,
ishes'between temperance spokesmen
and liquor industry representatives.
Spokesmen for union and manage-
ment expressed opposition to the bill
and disagreed sharply with temper-
ance leaders who contended the
measure would reduce plant ab-
senteeism resulting from drinking by
war workers on Sunday.
John L. Lovett of the Michi-
gan Manufacturers' Association, Ben
Probe of the Michigan 010 council
and John Reid of the Michigan Fed-
eration of Labor described the bill
as detrimental to the morale of war
workers and asserted speak-easies
and bootleggers would mushroom into
existence if it were adopted.
