Now the Paris Mutuel Ur' conducted under Btak^s, such as the recent one onj the Grand National Steeplechase, I ' •.-.^ brings a renewed demand for lot-19» n ™ ndl15 - tery tickets. In this country.; uauu-1 where lotteries are illegal and therefore removed from any offi- c'ial supervision, hundreds of small! pools are conducted on practically ( everything "from baseball scores to quotations on bank clearings. -j So prevalent have these pools j and "policy" games become that tlie New York Stock Exchange recently made a vain effort to curb, them by Issuing its daily totals ofj sales inbound numbers only, thus! robbing pool operators of a widely-1 distributed dally number which [ could be used as its winner. The r U. S. Treasury Department at Washington also discontinued issue-,of the daily treasury balance figure to'prevent its use in similar games. ' ' Imaginary Tips Newspaper cartoonists have been badgered to death by readers who ima^ln'd that their daily "strips" container^ some sort of tip on the; lottery winners, and popular radio] stars have had to be most carefuli of mentioning numbers In their' broadcasts. These were quickly snapped up by the gullible as tips on lottery .winners. No fancied tip is too wild to ensnare the hopeful gamblers who play the wildcat,] thfe Irresponsible pools which flood' every city with their tickets. Ever since this country began to .manifest an interest in foreign lotteries, such as the sweepstakes on the English Derby, and on the AgUk Caliente Handicap and the Grand National, there has been a \ large traffic In spurious ticket- 1 ;.
