Associated Press and United Press International Full Leass Wires MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY MAY 28 1960 To Copr This Paper of Two No 197 Tra m Gamblers e ve pun ches having a field day 3 By WILLIAM B DICKINSON GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON The gam bling passion which Balzac said lurks at the bottom of every heart can be more easily grat ified in the U S today than at any time since the heyday of the riverboats Betting of certain kinds is ap proved by 1 a w in a growing number of states In countless communities where gambling is not legal it nevertheless flour ishes in one form or another with little or no police interfer ence PUBLIC TOLERANCE of bet ting legal and illegal has brought expressions of concern from national and state legisla tors Sen Estes Kefauver D Tenn complained recently that a good many people had so far forgotten the lesson of the hear ings held a decade ago by his special Senate committee to in vestigate organized crime that they now propose legalization of gambling or the spread of legalized race betting to off track locations where hoodlums will be even more difficult to control Whether rigorous enforcement of antigambling laws can break the power of gambling syndi cates is a question that may be answered before long in New York The state Legislature re cently enacted new laws intend ed to put a hard brake on the ac tivities of professional gamblers Some persons believe that antigambling legislation and pleas to the public to refrain from gambling are futile EFFORTS BY New York Gromyko Lodge square off as aftermath to Security Council move UNITED NATIONS N Y fffl The Soviet Union charged Saturday that U S spy efforts proved the United States is planning an aggressive war against Russia The United States replied that on the contrary such efforts are aimed at preventing a surprise attack by the Kremlin The exchange took place in news conferences by Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A Gromyko and U S Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge as an aftermath of the U N debate on U S spy plane flights Gromyko called the United States an enemy of peace dedi cated to aggravating world tensions and not to be trusted in diplo

finally managed to lift her onto solid ground She was given the rest of the day off Mayor Robert Wagner to per suade the Legislature to approve an offtrack betting plan have been unsuccessful But there are signs of some weakening in the face of evermounting costs of government Offtrack betting in New York City might yield an nual revenue of as much as million which under Wagners proposal would be equally di vided between New York State and New York City Enforcement of federal anti gambling statutes has been im peded by narrow court interpre tations of the laws and by a feel ing that effective control de pends almost entirely on local and state action A special fed eral tax on gamblers levied by Congress in 1951 had little ef fect in reducing their numbers Evaders who came to the atten tion of federal prosecutors were as often as not smalltime op erators who had failed to make local protection payoffs ANOTHER FEDERAL law ap proved in 1951 making it a crime to transport slot machines or their parts in interstate com merce ran into enforcement dif ficulties when the Supreme Court ruled in 1953 that the Jus tice Department lacked author ity to keep track of intrastate sales This ruling made it im possible to trace the origin of the machines or to establish proof of law violations to the de gree required in criminal cases Corrective legislation has made no headway in Congress The sums of money involved in gambling continue to mount Around billion passed through parimutuel windows in 1959 in the 24 states where such race track betting has been le galized Perhaps as many as a million persons can be counted at bingo tables on a given night in the 12 states where that game is regulated and in the others where bingo parties are staged in the name of charily but with out legal authority Seven million tourists gamble billion annually at Nevadas casinos The numbers racket is said to gross a billion dollars a year in New York City alone Billions more are lost to the
