The United States Income (as c.ise against America's mosl glorified dlsscminaior of horse-race information in which the government 1 Is asking teck taxes plus penalties and .interest, lotalini! 55,548,384,' has been streamlined so as to reach a quicker decision than most such rases.

Wilkcr- .son, who has been In California resting up for tl lc biggest income tax case e\'er to come to trial, will return, around April 1, to hear Prosecutor William J. Cnmpbell argue against the !W Aimcnberg pleas piled up by 50 Aimcnbcrg lawyers, aided by CO AnnenberB aiiditors. IF VOUR HORSK RUNS LAST, IS It CHANCE? : Aside from Die questions of whether Annonberg pays the government $5,500.000, and whether he uoes to'jail lor 147 years for illeynlity of his nation-wide race- tlp-and-Informaiion service, the Annenberg cases are going to settle something else of vital interest lo all horse players, ' It is the question of whether in playing the races you are- using skill In picking 'em. or whether the tiling is sheer chance, and not a very good chance at that. Prosecution is based on the idea that horse-race betting is practically a lottery, and that In disseminating race information, Aimcn- berg "did feloniously . . . carry from one stnte to another ... a list of prizes awarded by means of a certain lottery scheme offering prices dependent upon chnnce . " ALSO—CAN YOU J'rC'K A WINNER? ;Hore are the elements of chance, say the government indictments, which bear down on- your horserace'bet: 1 The conduct and physical con- (lillon-of the horse you pick, 2 The separate- conduct and Physical condition of all the other horses. 3. The separate conduct, motives, purposes, and physical and mental condition of the jockeys, owners, trainers, and others. •'4.

He buill \\\t dozens of papers, tip-sheets, reports, everything (he horse-player needs. The system blanketed the. country.
