lotteries c Washington StarNews Washington Governors of 13 states that Operate lotteries were invited today to meet with Atty Gen William B Saxbe next Friday to discuss questions concerning the legality of state lotteries Theres a distinct possibility that there is violation of the criminal provision of the federal code Saxbe said in a telegram today to the governors in cluding Illinois Daniel Walker Saxbe said a permanent in junction against the lotteries might be sought in the courts unless the existing laws are changed by Congress The governors invited to next weeks meeting were told that the state lottery directors would also be welcome Questions of the legality under federal law of the lot teries which have become an important source of revenue to a number of states were raised earlier this year when Maine prepared to begin its lottery known as play me The US attorney for that state warned mat the lottery appeared to violate federal laws in two ways First he said it illegally relied on the use of the mails And second he said il relied on federal charted bank as sales points also forbidde by law Saxbe held up action againsi Maine officials pending a study by department lawyers But thai study has made it increasingly apparent that the existing laws ban at least some aspects of the lotteries as they are now operated Carbondale eligible City may get million By John Trimble Of The Southern Illinoisan Carbondale may receive million under the new Hous ing and Community Develop ment act recently signed by President Gerald R Ford The new federal grant sys tem will cause Carbondale to change the internal structure of its community service pro grams such as Model Cities and Urban Renewal City Manager Carroll Fry said the projects under those programs will continue but there will be some shifting of personnel and responsibili ties among city departments Under the community de velopment act of 1974 Carbon dale may get million in 1975 million in 1976 and million in 1977 The city may also get million in 1978 and in 1979 The law runs for five years and after that the city will get federal money only if the law is changed after the first threeyear authoriza tion or the city is awarded discretionary funds Fry said Fry emphasized that the fig ures are subject to change if Congress cuts or adds to the billion authorization The figures he released were taken from a US Dept of Housing and Urban Devel opment printout which shows allocations for various cities under the new law as it now stands Carbondale is fortunate to get any money Fry said be cause it is not a standard metropolitan statistical area and has fewer than 50000 per sons It is eligible as a hold harmless city which means that since Carbondale already was getting federal money assistance will not be stopped abruptly now Fry is preparing a report for the city council which he may present at the 7 pm Tuesday meeting in the Uni versity City cafeteria The new program will place greater emphasis on urban re newal and the removal of blighted areas It also for the first time will allow the city to undertake urban re newal projects in commercial districts that need it The program will give the city more freedom to choose areas for other projects The city will have to submit an overall fiveyear program and yearly reports before any money is released Fry said The allocation to Carbondale exceeds allocations to all oth er Illinois cities except Chica go and East St Louis Prou Hwrln Dallv Jcurn1 lndipndnt FRIDAY AUG 30 1974 Ca BOX 789 2 Horses begin workouts on
