Legislation authorizing the

The recommendation was an
nounced by O. Laurgaard, Port

of the association.
Laurgaard said he believed the
plan wouid place little or no bur

It will not be nossible for the

islative sanction, it was declared
here Saturday by state officials
who have given careful Btudy to
the opinion of the supreme court
holding that law unconstitution
First reading of the opinion
indicated that the court had or
dered the refund. John Carkln,
chairman of the Btate tax com
mission, pointed out that the
money derived from the intangi
bles tax law had been turned
over to the state treasurer and
placed in the general fund.
He declared in receipting for
this money the state tax commis
sion was precluded from making
any refunds unless authorized to
do so by the legislature. The
money had been held unreceipted
by the state treasurer until six
weeks ago in hope that an earlier
opinion of the supreme court
would be forthcoming.
No Reference to
Refund, Shown
"The opinion of the supreme
court made no reference to the
refund," Carkin said, "but re
mands the case to the lower
court with Instructions to grant
the prayer of the petitioners.
Apparently the petitioners did
not ask for a refund or the
money paid under the intangible
tax law."
Carkin declared that on en-
couracing phase of the opinion
was the fact that it pointed out
two ways in "which a constitu
tional intangibles tax law may
be enacted. One way would be
