MONEY WASHINGTON' cupy Federal officials indicated today that meager tax money collected from the tliree-ypa^old federal gambling AP'X Osbows th at ma,py gamblers; either are not registering or have given up gambling, , , ;. ''. The law, which requires anyone professionally engaged in gqrr|bling to register with ..the Internal - Revenue Service and buy a $50 betting, stamp each year, has produced less than one-tenth ' of the- amount of revenue that was expected to flow into treasury coffers. Anyone .buying a. betting stamp automatically puts himself on the police rolls as a gambler, subject to cheek-up by local police for. possible violation of local ahti-garnblina laws. A gambler who does not buy a stamp is -subject to arrest for violating federal law. The, 10 per cent levy is" on each get the gambler handles. .When /the law was passed in 1951. sn on so rs estimated it would' bring the treasury about $400,000,000 a year 'in revenues. Instead, co31ect»dhs on the stamp and 10 per cent taxes have totalled $27, 98.8,000 from Nov. 1, 1951, through August of this year. Of each $9 collected, about $8'has come from the 10 per cent tax and about $1 froiri tile stamp tax. Officials said more than 7,500 gamblers now are regislored with the Internal Revenue Serv vice. In addition . .to their $50 annual fee, they are saying the treasury about $600,000 a month on the bets .they handle.

Once more he's circling over a TV shew, callittg the turn on the script. This time it's the Mr. Peepers show, as it was earlier vith 1 Love Lucy, the Milton Eerie Show and Hit Parade. The script had planned for Mr. and Mrs. Robinson Peepers to discover next spring that the stork was going to visit thc-ir house about next October. But now Pat Benoit, who plays the part of Mrs. Peepers, and her magazine executive husband Parton Swift Jr., really are expecting a baby in late ppring. So the schedule or the lorig- billed bird in the script will have to be speeded up accordingly to enable Miss Benoit to continue her role as Mrs. Peepers. The Swifts were married in October 1953, reveral months before the script marriage o* Nancy Remington to Mr. Peepers, played by Wally Cox, on the NBC show. Shortly thereafter, Cox and Toni Gennaro of the stage were married. In the case of the Mr. Peepers show Mr. Stork didn't upset the plot of the script since he : al ready had been assigned a fictional role only the timing. But in the Milton Berle Show, Ruthie Gilbert's part as a bachelor girl pursuing her toss was one the script couldn't handle when che and her businessman husband Emanuel Finebert discovered that a baby was on the way. She had to be written out of . the show, making her final appearance three weeks ago, and a dispute ensued over the date of her return. There was no serious script problem whan Dorothy Collins had to retire from Hit Parade while she and her husband Raymond Scott awaited their first child. The show being a musical, it was simple to have a substitute. Polly Bergen, pinch-hit for Miss Collins from the time Hit Parade returned for the season last Sept. 30 until Dorothy was able to resume Nov. 20. The most celebrated case in TV, cf course, was a couple of years ago when Mr. and Mrs. Ricky Richard of I Love'Lucy .had, a baby a the same time Desi TV was born to the husband-wife stars Lucille Ball and -Desi Arnaz.

Recount Asked in Oregon Probe WASHINGTON, (UP) Chairman Frank Barrett said today his Senate elections subcommittee has received a request for a recount and investigation of the close Oregon senatorial election which gave Democrats razor-thin control of the Senate in the 84th Congress which convenes in January. The Wyoming Republican announced that the request was being studied and had been discussed at an "informal" meeting of the subcommittee. Barrett stressed took no that the subcommittee action and did not even decide whether to "take jurisdiction" of the case. Sen. Guy M. Cordon (R.), who was defeated for reelection by Richard L. Neuberger in the Oregon contest, was present for part of the session but had "no comment." Sen. Thomas C. Hennings, Jr., (Mo.) the subcommittee's Democratic member, was not present.

Officers s^i Dear Miss Dix:-When I was in high school I never, had dates with the other students. Those who invited me to go, .1 turned down because I wasn't especeially interested in them. Now I find the men who ask me to go with them are much older than I am. Although I'm only 18, my current beau .is 29 and seems worried over the dif- erence in our ages. Does it matter? • BETTY W. Answer: Apparently you are more mature than most of. your contemporaries, and .tend to look down .on'them as, childish, It's a mistake • to be too choosy about dates in'high school/Although one should certainly .have . standards and stick to them, it doesn't pay to set one's sights too high. Besides, many a date that was expected at first to be dull has turned out to be wonderfully interesting. Th esame hyper-selectivity has undoubtedly followed you from higl> school, causing you to find boys closer to your own age uninteresting. While the difference between 18 and 29 doesn't constitute an insurmountable barrier, -young- men closer to your -agp would be preferable. Dear Miss Dix: My problem is neighbor trouble.' Our houses are so close together thet I can hear the fat sizzle when the woman next door is frying something. She makes no attempt to keep her family quiet, yet she is peeved if I vacuum at 8 o'clock jn the morning.
