COURIER NEWS Baltimore Called 'Hotbed Of Big Time Bookmaking WASHINGTON, April 20. <*•)—«. , Mayor Thomas 'Alesahdro said today that Baltimore is a reglona ""clearing house" of Information to big time eastern bookmakers. He said the city is powerless t<J halt this operation which "seem to be a perfectly legal enterprise under current law." D'AIcsaridro testified before * Senate commerce subcommittee in support of a bill which would forblc : the sending of gambling Informa tlon across state lines. He described the measure as designed to take bookmaktng "out of the billion dollar class" by cutting off bookie • information. Moot Question "Just how many big time bookmakers operate In Baltimore Is ; moot question," D'Alesandro said "It Is general knowledge, however that the racing news syndicate which provides vast informatloi service''to bookmakers, operates In Baltimore a regional Informatloi clearing house." ; He said city and state authorities do not have the power to contro the flow of InformaUon to bookies and for this reason need feriera help. The Senate took'one step yesterday in the direction of helping tfte states deal with gambling. II passed a measure lo ban the shipment of slot machines and other • gambling devices Into states where their operation Is Illegal. The bill now goes to the liouse. D'Alesandro said he doubted if there were a dozen slot machines operating In Baltimore, but that thi numbers racket and bookmakers , operate there. Continual Stream "There is a continual stream of numbers men and bookies—mostly small fry—being tried In our crltn- ' inal coutrs," he said. "In nearly all cases they are convicted." . D'Alesandro Is chairman of the legislative committee of the United States conference of mayors and he conferred with Justice Department officials in the drafting of the pending anti-gambling leglsla- Th6'committee plans to hold at least, several days .of hearings before deciding what to do about the bill. ••;. ; Navy Has 20.000 ] Jobs Available * J The U.S. Navy has 20,000 Jobs i open for young men and enllst- 3 ments to fill these vacancies will [ be accepted during April, May and I June, Quartermaster First Class i Bert Warblngton, In charge of the '- Navy Recruiting Sun-Station , \n { Blythevllle City Hall, said yester- i d ^ y ' ' Men of all trade categories, vet* erans and non-veterans alike, and j high school graduates are being < .sought, he said.
