personal the the president and the country deserve the safeguard for professional advice that a fixed term would We hope that the Senate and President Kennedy will view the legislation in this The bill is not an infringement of presidential author Instead it offers him protection against error and These Days Our Something For Nothing Society By John Chamberlain Next week the inhabitants of New York City are scheduled to vote on the desirability of legalizing off track The as set forth by Mayor Robert is to bring pressure via a voters referendum to bear on the state legislature to grant New York City the right to raise money by going into what might be called a municipal bookmaking Republican state many of them hailing from rural con have expressed a concern lest legalized off track betting should endourage a growth of the some thing for nothing This columnist does not deny that there are ethical Issues involved in But when the State of New York already permits legal parimutuel betting at the tracks it has recently approved more oppor tunity for betting by lengthening the legitimate racing the scruples of legislators who think it moral to place a bet in one place but not in another seem a trifle If betting is its on the other a case can be made for keeping the channels for betting out of the hands of the underworld by establishing state supervised parimutuel it would seem desirable to make such windows really accessible to those who have the urge to plunk down a couple of dollars on a Why let the shady underworld character get the rakeoff involved in making book for those who cant find time to go to tracks The money the bookie takes as his cut on a successful bet becomes hot capital that may flow into such things as doperunning or gangster control of legitimate Mayor Wagner estimates that the municipal and state share of offtrack betting volume would come to at least a Whether thib sum is exaggerated or it would seem to be the mark of common sense to keep the average 15 per cent betting service charge out of the hands of underworld Better that the money should go for schools than for importing To get an idea of what wagerers feel about legalizing offtrack we sent our Gus the elevator out to the Aqueduct track the other day armed with a Gus really knows the dailydouble and can get them to Some of the quotes he brought back were They indicated that the ontrack betplacer also indulges his hohby on days when he cant get off to see the horses Mayor Wag ners offtrack legalization proposition appeals to a fair proportion of wagerers because they wouldnt have to worry about the This would seem to indicate that the present antibookmaking laws do not stop they merely serve to make them uncomfortable about what they intend to do If the reluctant legislators can make a convincing case that legalization of offtrack betting will appreciably add to the something for nothing spirit that is rampant in our they have a good argument on their But how many of those who think it immoral to seek a gift of dreammoney at the parimutuel window offer sim ilar objections when it is a question of tapping the state or society for something for nothing Do those peo ple consider it immoral for a farmer to be rewarded for not raising wheat Did they support the authorities in the city of Newburgh when the effort was made to purge the local relief rolls of moochers When the federal gov ernment offers funds raised by taxing rural constituen cies in Nebraska or Texas to provide big cities with mon ey for urban is there any moral outcry over what amounts to a quite arbitrary transfer of wealth The truth is that the something for nothing spirit fS9 permeates pur culture that the objection to legalized offtrack betting seems quite For that isjjt it actually more moral for a municipality to take entj redistribute money granted to it voluntarily as from a willingly offered 15 per cent of a bet than it i tp take money by force from people by raising their The case for voluntary taxation has never been by our which seems loath to admit that the idea has Maybe a start toward exploring this poncept could be made by voting for Mayor
