PACK lO-NAPf.ATrCK NKWS (CONN.), FRIDAY, NOV. IK, I (Ml) Hearing On Gambling Laws Attracts Record Attendance A capacity crowd attended the legislative hearing Wednesday in Hartford on the issue of whether the state should relax its anti-gambling laws for the benefit of nonprofit organizations. The Rev. O. H. Bertram, pastor of St. Paul's Luheran church, was among a group of Protestant clergymen and spokesmen for Protestant church organizations, making •jp the anti-gambling forces. The debate centered around two bills introduced in the present special session of the General Assembly. One measure would permit certain non-profit organizations, chiefly volunter fire companies, to con- duct raffles and other games of chance at bazaars and carnivals, and the other would repeal a law, enacted several years ago, which permits ch,urches and other nonprofit groups to have bingo parties. The first bill drew most of the rl|ilr of "tioiiu'lhlnn fur nolhliiK."

Bowles To Open New Hall At State Hospital Tuesday The opening of the 300-bed Dutch- er'Hall by Governor Bowles at Connecticut State Hospital, Middletown, scheduled for Tuesday, will mark the first public program in Connecticut devoted to a complete presentation of the situation of the mentally iil in Connecticut as it exists today. Dr. Edgar C. Verbury, hospital superintendent, explained that "This occasion represents more than the opening of another building. It represents also a step forward in Connecticut's conception of the care of mental illness." The major problem facing the three institutions at the present time, other than adequate personnel, is the presence of some .3.000 resident patients over 60 years of ag-c. This number represents 40 per cent of the census of 8400 men- tallj'ill patients in the three institutions. Reliable figures from hospital authorities show that of the 3,000 mildly confused old people, some 600 to 800 need only custodial care and little if any psychiatric treatment. of the novels, Strand TERMS at LOW at $1.75 WEEK TRADE-IN ALLOWANCE FOR OLD MACHINES CARLSON'S OPEN FRIDAY EVENING — CLOSED MONDAYS "That Forsyte Woman" Held Over At Loew Strand As Erroll Flynn's vibrant young wife, Greer Garson has a tailor- made role in "That Forsyte Woman," , M-OMVs handsome Technicolor fllmization of one world's most widely-read which has moved to the for three more days.
