Meeting in closed session here yesterd.ay, the Anti-OamWiii ff League voted to submit a draft of a proposed constitutional amendment to outlaw pari-mutuel betting to the state assemblies of each religious group. "Of course. It will take some lime," snid the Rev. B. K. Sclph of Benton. a Baptist and president of the league. He said some of the denominations meet in the spring 1 others In the fall. Mr. Selph said league officers felt that they lacked authority to proceed with the campaign without formal approval of all the churches whose memberships would carry the fighl, for passage of the amendment. Five denominations were represented in the small group attending the meeting at the Second Baptist Church here. The last time the state's voters ruled on horse racing, they defeated by 18.000 votes an Initiafd act which would have outlawed race tracks. That was in the 1944 <-<mer- al eleciion.

They probably will not get additional state funds until May I. Colleges are allotted certain amounts from the state's general revenue fund until $33,050,000 has been collected. They do not benefit from further collections until IJj.. 800.000 more has been collected. After this fund has been distributed, the colleges share in the next $4.410,000. State fiscal authorities do not expect to have the $12,800,000 collected until May I—therefore, the four colleges have no more funds coming in^ until at least May 1. And State Comptroller Lee Roy Beasley has said that they would not be permitted to do any deficit spending.
