I Page 10-NAUGATlICK NEWS (Conn.) Thurtday, June 10.1916 Governor Takes Neutral Stance On Gaming Law By JUAN TAMAYO HARTFORD, Conn. (UP!) Gov. Ella T. Grasso says she will remain neutral on a congressional proposal to ban interstate wagering, even though it could cripple Connet- licul'smonlh-oldolf-track-bet- lirg system. "1 see no call to go out and he the champion of gambling in Connecticut," she told a news confacncc Wednesday. Connecticut has no horse tracks of its own and OTB handles New York Slate races. "I am still concerned about the proliferation o! these activities in Ihe state," said Mrs. Grasso, a staunch opponent of all forms of legalized gambling with the exception of Ihe slate lottery. Asked about the revenues lost if the interstate wagering ban is approved, she turned to Deputy Finance Commissioner Anthony Milano and asked him for a report on OTB earnings to date. The burden would not be shifted to taxpayers, Mrs. Grasso said. "We will ry to keep the taxpayers' burden low," she said. Mrs. Grasso also said the Special Revenue Commission's vote earlier Wednesday to license a proposed horse track in Middletown and move to revoke the permit for a Woleolt track made no difference to her. "1 have no more enthusiasm for a track in Middletown than a track in Wolcotl," she said. The governor this year backed an unsuccessful bid to ban horse racing in Connecticut. In other mailers, Mrs. Grasso was asked questions about which Democratic presidential candidate she would back at the New York convention this summer. She has been backing Henry Jackson but published reports that Jackson may be thinking of endorsing Jimmy Carter may change her stance, she said. "I said before there was lots 1 needed lo learn (aboul Carter), and it looks like I'm going lo have to learn quickly," she said, smiling. "But I am not ready to make a slatemenl on this yet." Mrs. Grasso also said the stale's plans to expand public beach facilities were progressing, but some projects would be delayed until next summer because required studies have rat been completed. Frustrated Citizens Blamed For GOP Crisis CRANSTON, R.I. (UPD Alienation of thousands of frustrated Americans who don't bother to vote is part of the reason the Republican party is "in crisis," according to Sen, Charles McC. Malhias, R-Md. "The Republican party loday is in crisis. Our party, once the party of humanity, now claims Ihe allegiance of less lhan 18 ptr cent of the registered voters," Mathias said Wednesday. "If our showing is this poor among registered voters, imagine where we must stand with the tens of thousands of Americans who have grown too cynical, loo apathetic or too frustrated by the political shadow-play of our times to bother lo register." He was Ihe main speaker at a GOP .fund-raiser honoring for- nte Gov. John H. Chaiee who is battling lo succed veteran Sen. John 0. Pastore, D.R.I, on Capitol Hill next year. Mathias said the problem of voter apathy does not rest with the Republican party alone. "These people are Ihe real warning sign. They are Ihe unknown, amorphous growth on the political horizon...they are simply turning their backs in disillusionment of Ihe whole party process. These people sec a political system that has failed to live up to its principles. Their alienation is not a fad. "It's not lhat, having found us wanting, they're turning to the Democratic parly either. Thai might even be a healthy sign. For then, we could hope lhal Ihe pendulum swing of our two-parly system would send them back our way some time," Mathias said. During the American Revolution, approximately 5,000 blacks served in the Colonial army. Democrats Getting Ready To Make Political History at 8 p.m. in Ihe school auditorium.

SPECIAL PROJECT: This is the first of a two-parl series previewing Saturday's six con- gressionaldlslrlct conventions lhat will select Ihe state's Democratic national convention delegation. By PETER A. BROWN HARTFORD, Conn. (UPD Connecticut Democrats Saturday complete seleclion of their national convention delegation, ' but it won't be reminiscent of the traditional gatherings where parly leaders dispensed the posts. Until this year Democrats named their delegates at a state convention run by the iron hand of the late John M. Bailey, who decided what each presidential candidates would receive. But the Democratic National Committee, as part ot a " national reform effort, ordered an end to that and party leaders decided on a two-tier seleclion system that ended the hand-picking of national convention delegates. Party leaders — principally Bailey — previously had parceled out delegate spots by negotiating among candidate representatives, but always making sure the big Democratic names were on the delegation. Under the current system, a May 11 primary selected delegates pledged to various presidential candidates and SUPERIOR Four Jurors Picked Four jurors were chosen yesterday for the trial of Willie Durham, 50, of 64 W'inyah Ave., Waterbury who is charged with larceny and conspiracy to commit larceny in connection with the theft of about $15,000 worth of shoes from (be Uniroyal Footwear warehouse. After the four jurors were picked the case was recessed until June 16 at 2 p.m. when selection of the other two jurors will take place.

UNDER With Ella's Veto HARTFORD, Conn. (UPD Secretary of Ihe State Gloria Schaffer, a candidate for the Dernocralic U.S. Senate nomination, said she favors decriminalization but not legalization of marijuana. If elected, she said, "This would not be one of my first priorities. But for very small quantities, for personal use, let's decriminalize it," she said Wednesday. "Let's let the law enforcement people do the heavy serious work they want to do. There's too much time lost on Ihis subject now," she added. Mrs. Schaffer said she disagreed with Gov. Ella T. Grasso's «to last week of a bill which would have reduced possible jail terms for marijuana possession. Her comments came in a broadcast interview on WHCN _ radio. "We moke banking human."
