(AP)Courts that allegedly coddle "fences," banks that don't police their check customers and merchants who don't keep good records all were given a share of the blame Thursday for Minnesota's white-collar crime. The term is losely used to cover shoplifting, employe theft and assorted other crimes involving property and not involving violence. A Senate-House committee on organized crime as told by Minneapolis Police Capt. Rollo Mudge that fences are among the central figures in the organized crime picture. Fences are dealers in stolen goods, buying from shoplifters or "boosters" and reselling the goods to the public at markdown prices. "Business in fencing is so good these days that the fences specialize," Mudge said. He said some dealers may handle hardware, clothing or even items so specialized as stained glass windows. Judges who handle shoplifting and fencing cases are a constant irritant to police, Mudge said. "One of the sad facts of life today is the trend of courts, lieve but there was a 10-pound adding machine stolen in this fashion," Cooke said. Gail Speten, a spokesman for Applebaums Food Stores, accused banks of failing to keep a close enough watch on check customers. She said banks "beg for business" but do little to check names and addresses of those who apply for checking accounts. The legislative group, headed by Sen. Winston Borden, DFL- Brainerd, plans additional hearings at Duluth, Mankato, Willmur and Alexandria. Mudge said retailers contrib- CROSSWORD PUZZLE ute to the problem by failing to keep records of serial numbers. In one case, he said, police knew when, where and how a cache of electric tools was stolen. Yet, the store lacked a list of serial numbers and could not prove the items were stolen. Mudge said fences also employ "expert refinishers" who can taken stolen television sets, refrigerators and other items and make them look like new. He said stores advertising themselves as "sample shops" or sellers of "distressed merchandise" are an outlet for stolen goods.

"We have to make pur laws more effective against the fence and make our courts realize they are among the two or three most important figures in crime." Mudge and other witness also blamed public apathy for part of the problem. People are willing to wink as they buy stolen merchandise at reduced prices, Mudge said. Oliver S. Perry, executive vice president of the Minnesota Association of Commerce and Industry (MACI) said he is concerned at growing evidence of white-collar crime. "We are equally concerned about the apathetic attitude of most of pur state's citizens," Perry said. Mudge estimated that there are "in the neighborhood of two dozen major fences" operating in the Twin Cities. He said there is a "regular route" for stolen outboard motors, jewelry and other stolen goods from northern Minnesota into the Twin Cities. Glen Dornfeld, director of security for Day's Department Stores, also was critical of court handling of shoplifting cases. He said it is "not unusual" for shoplifting gangs to be arrested while awaiting trail on a prior offense. Dornfeld said one government study suggests it costs lawful customers 5 to 15 per cent of their purchases for losses caused by white collar crime. Stores add the loss figures to their prices, meaning the cost is paid by law-abiding customers. Lane Cooke, Chicago, regional security manager for Montgomery Wards said sophisticated shoplifters are turning to new techniques, shedding the "booster coats" used in the past. Shoplifters work in pairs, he said. One, called the "turner," diverts the attention of a clerk. The other slips stolen items between his legs, walking out of the store in that fashion.

It has a liody coat marked with large irregular patches of white set against any of the solid colors. The spotted horse dates far back in ancient times. There are records of their existence in tgypt as far back as 3400 B.C. They were known in early times in India and Tibet. Paints were in Hurope at the time of the discovery of the New World. Cortez and his followers brought the Pinto to Mexico. It gained great favor with the Indians particularly the buffalo hunters of the Great Plains. The Conwnches liked the natural camoullage of the Pinto and sometimes daubed additional splashes if they thought the markings were inadequate. The Paint or Pinto, through its wild life on the plains, developed great endurance and shrewdness. Cowboys admired the breed and preferred the color to an animal with a solid coat. "Old Paint" was the subect of cowboy songs 7-26 (Karen Litton of Oak Ridge. Tennessee, wins a prize for this question.

(AP) - The Waseca School Board and teachers in the Waseca School District announced Wednesday they have reached tentative agreement on teacher salaries for the coming school year. Officials said the total dollar package agreed upon was J200,- 000, an increase over the previous year. Officials did not say how much of an increase the package reflected. The district's 120 teachers have been negotiating since April with the school board for a one-year contract. Officials said future meetings will be held to determine how the salary increases will be divided al the various teaching levels. The new package also includes fringe benefits. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Lynn Wall says all he wants is his mule. But authorities say Monopoly won't be sprung until somebody pays his feed bill. "Old Monopoly is worth $1,000," said Wall, 56, a retired San Francisco cabbie now living in Virginia City, Nev. "But I ain't gonna pay that fine, even if it's a nickel." Monopoly, a specially trained show animal, was "arrested" July 5 while Wall was grazing the animal at 3 a.m. on the lawn at city hall. " ... I didn't have no place to feed him, so we just walked over to the mall," Wall explained. "That's when all hell broke loose." Police asked Wall to remove the beast. When Wall told them he had no place to take Monopoly, officers called the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The mule has been held ever since, with a $5 per day grain charge accumulating on an original $25 fine for grazing an animal within the city limits. The ASPCA said it would not release the animal until it is reimbursed for the grain.
