Since July \ slnrl of the new fiscal year and time for gelling new stamps, only 3,950 gambling occupation stamps were bought, the bureau reported today. Officials doubted there wns a collapse in the trode but were not sure whether, on the strength of a District Court ruling that tiie tax Is unconstitutional, gamblers had decided the Supreme Court will overthrow the law and had held off dorse and campaign actively" for McCarthy If the latter is renom- inated by Wisconsin Republicans and i( ho asks for Elsenhower's help.
