First "group likes"- 0 it because lottery proceeds would increase old age. pensions. Second group believes it would reduce real estate taxes. The Society for Old Age Pensions is headed, by Charles C. OTJbrinell. a 64-year-old disabled Avar veteran of Lynn. His society has a membership of 4000 scattered through the state, mostly ''oiks who themselves would . be beneficiaries of pensions. no- Its an il] wind that blows no good, but these British Hurricane lighters in the middle east bring little comfort to Mussolini's north A.rican legions. Spectacular photo above was taken just as flight of Hurricanes broke formation over the desert to attack enemy aircraft reported to them by radio. C. O'DonncJ] pose the bill because such a lottery would cut into their "business." Surprisingly enough, in view of the vigorous and successful oppo- •sirinon to the passage of such a law in previous years. 30 out of -iO senatorial districts in Massachusetts vcted favorably in a referendum this fall. Official tabulation in the favorable 30 districts trave 305.052 for and 325.63D against. Although many citizens consider the referendum vote as mandatory jupon the legislature, many of the legislators deem the vote merely as instructive or advisory. A poll of legislative leaders indicates that the bill will be beaten just as it has been previously. In past years a similar lottery bill has been vigorously opposed by the clergy of most denominations and Gov. Leverelt Saltonstall went on record when he said: "We have not reached that stage 'in our civilization yet, A tax- raising lottery is undemocratic anyhow. It hits those who can least afford it. I would be surprised at myself if I ever recommended it." In 1935 William Cardinal C'- Connell. head of the Massachusetts hieiai-chy of the Roman Catholic Church, issued a vitrolic attack upon a similar lottery bill. He said: "A stale lottery is an out-and- out gambling machine and where- ever it is established it is a tremendous source of moral corruption." Pemiscot County Officials Are Administered Oaths'.
