his opposi tion to a resolution permitting lotteries in Indiana and says he will assign the measure to a House committee if it passes the Senate The resolution to remove the Indiana Constitu tions ban against lotteries and other forms of gambling sponsored by Senate Finance Chairman Lawrence Borst RIndianapolis won 81 approval Tuesday from the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee Dailey earlier this year said he would kill the resolution if it reached him But he said Tuesday he needed to zip my lip on the issue I need to be perhaps a bit more When you see the chairman of the Senate Finance Borst Dailey Committee is the sponsor I want to make sure we dont come into Dailey said If the Senate passes the resolution we will assign it to committee to look at the issues the cost the revenue that it may or may not The resolution would erase the state Constitutions ban on lotteries which has been interpreted by the courts to forbid all forms of gambling from pari mutuel horse race bets to bingo I think the majority of people in Indiana are for legalized Borst said The measure would need approval from this Legislature a subsequently elected legislature and the public in a referendum to become law Borst said Daileys would help the resolutions chance for passngi added I think it will pass the Senate but I dont even have a House Borst said Indiana outlawed lotteries in 1851 not necessarily as a philosophical decision but because the state went bankrupt funding canals roads and railroads partially through lotteries He pointed out the Legislature has enacted a parimutuel law but cannot use it because Indiana courts have outlawed such betting under the Con stitutions lottery clause Borst and Sen Joseph Harrison RAttica said the resolution would give voters a chance to say yes or no to legalized gambling Borst said it would help the state raise money directly and indirectly through increased employment at race tracks Inside Today Falling Pound Real Bargain Record low

State of the Union address It was a speech chockfull of specific proposals for at least a partial change in the economic course he had previously insisted needed no alteration It also was a clear attempt to regain the leadership initiative he held at the start of his and it was notably free of the pugnaciously partisan tone of his past public utterances The speech was heavily weighted toward domestic problems with emphasis on the federal deficits that are projected to reach or pass billion this year and un employment which hit a four decade high of 12 million while inflation was dropping during Reagans first two years in office He also sketched new steps to improve education health care law enforcement foreign trade and statefederal relations and pledged to continue the search for arriss reduction and peace abroad But the rising tide of red ink and the lengthening rolls of the jobless were on his mind He called the deficits a clear and present danger to the basic health of the
