The plan to legalize the num- was announced here by .....------iuii he city's Off Track Betting and M Corp. which now han- dles bcls on horse and harness racing. OTB estimates that 1.35 mil- lion New Yorkers now are in- volved in wagering million a year on numbers. It says the profits from the gambling can be plowed back into the city to improve poor neighborhoods, where much of the numbers gambling now takes place.
