PAGE TWO m.YTUKVIU.K (AKK.V COURTIOR NEWS WEDNESDAY, JANUARY lg, 1950 DeweyCondemns Gaming Proposal " New York Governor . Takes Sharp Issue ;.• With Mayor O'Dwyer ALBANY, N. y., Jan. 18 <AP> — Mayor William O'Dwycr's plan to legalize gambling on all svoils events was a dead duck in the legislature today. But the proposal seemed destined to become a roaring issue in the state election next lall. ' •f The New York mayor's controversial proixxsal was embalmed in the Senate and Assembly last night after. Gov. Thomas B. Dewey denounced it as "shocking, immoral and Indecent." Everybody got into the act. Three Democrats challenged Dcucy to bo "consistent" and call for an end to legal pari-muluel betting at horse tracks. i But nobody seriously expects that, fo happen, even though Dewcy said he had "per.sonal doubts about the wisdom or the morality of this system." - Dewey obviously was out to make political capital" of '.lie O'Dwyer plan, with nn eye on next fall's gubernatorial campaign. " O'Dwyer has bepn mentioned a^; a leading contender for the Demo-; cratic nomination. Dewey has not yet Indicated whether he will seek re-election. • "The entire history of legalized gambling in this country and abroad." said rwwcy, "shora that it has brought nothing but poverty, crime and corruption, demoralization of moral and ethical standards, and ultimately a lower living stand- ird and misery for all the people."

Krr4* l,a*K, ike XIX B UT I couldn't just lightly dismiss a live mouse in my kitchen from my mind, any more than 1 could idly imagine Pochahontas doing the Charleston at the Stork Club, i worked with my usual resentment, but under a Dew and more difficult type of tension, expecting «t any moment to have Mr. Mouse Freak up behind me like the villain in a murder mystery. "He ca.Vt hurl you,* John said logically, when I complained. "But I'm afraid," I said. "It makes me nervous." "Afraid of a tiny mouse? Ha ha," langhed John, and 1 realized as I glared at him that there is basierttly very little difference between the grown men and the little boys who delight in putting worms down little girls' necks, or running olf with their hals. The next Saturday night, w •.vent out again, ant. this time t*rcda had mote specific news about our nonpaying guest. "I heard him gnawing at a pnpe bag in the kitchen," she sai< pleasantly. "That's wher" he is You must have some exposed foot there, haven't you?" "My potatoes!" I said eagerly "I hot nc's there! Oh, John, [ re member ,we once had a mouse— only once, and my father caught it You catch this one, darling," turned to him in sudden inspira tion, ."and 1 won't have to worr any more!" "Catch it?" John nearly shrieked "That's crazy. You can't go chas ing mice, can you?" he asked, ap pealing to Freda, who, like mos women, could never k.'t a ma down. Tb*f* right," she *gr«ed, JUnding like a sudden, self-con- iluted authority on small anjmaj life. "But. fret afraid," I protested. It interferes with my cooking and housework. Please, darling." . "Oh. »ll right," he said retue- mtly, "I'll try." Stealthily, the three erf us ttp- oed Into the kitchen, hoping to ike Mr. Mouse by surprise. We lapped o 1 the light, and sure enough, as we opened the cup- ward door, a flash of gray, went y. "Catch him!" 1 yelled, like a >odger fan to Uic third baseman t a. World Series game. JI7ITH the gallery cheering, John m^ae a dramatic wild grab at he gray slrcafc, only to lose his >nlancc and fall on his face. After we all finished laughing; John organised a new plan. "Maybe we can chloroform him," he said thoughtfully. "I'll get a cnn of ether, ;.nd pour it all around he tnsides of the cupboard and close the doors. That should anes- hetize him, and when he's [nocked out, I pick him tip, throw lim down, and tini!" Even Freda, who. in the first place didn't understand why a ittle mouse should be bothering me but was too polite to say so. seemed properly impressed al Ihe marvels of modern medicine. Accordingly, John got the ether, and started to pour. "Keep your faces away," he warned importantly, working like Sherlock Holmes in a mobile crime laboratory to corner a vicious criminal, "or this stufl'll get you too." Finally, the can was empty and we stood by 10 await Mr. Mouse's collapse, the way Eisenhower must have watched Berlin. But nothing happened except that we must have do\ised ourselves too, for all at once the effort of slnying awake became harder than petting pennies back out of a slot machine. Just as all our eyes were half Mr. Mouse run ener- fieticnlly out from the cupiioard and hid warily under Uie stove. » • • rE next morning, 1 slept late. ; and di'r.'t r-.c: up until altei Jobn had already lett or a call. , "Maybe it's really, isonc . away . this time." 1 tried to tell mysell. reaching sleepily for rn> tooth- b'rusl, and stopping short, there Ih the bathtub and heaven only knows how he ^ot there, was Mr. Mouse. He was obviously cornered because trj as tic might. It was impossible for him tc climb up the ittcp sides, and his exhaustion from his futile iltcmpts to do so. was equally plain. At first, ) was frightened and inclined to run. Then 1 reconsidered and emerged with the victorious thought: "I'll get him myself. It's easy now since he's so tired and then I'll tell John, yes sir." 1 gloaled, thrilled by Ihe prospect of nuch deserved praise to come for this heroism above and beyond tlw line of duty By bis tail seemed the mosi practical rr.cthod, ana. with Mr Mouse evidently in the same stale of collapse as a floorwalker aflei a penny sale in a bnrgain basement, also the most feasible With my bare hands? Even Denny Dimwit could have answered that. Humcdlv, siill in my nightgown, 1 went into John's oflice and put on a pair of rubber gloves. Protected by these and trying to bcliave .with the nonchalant aplomb of a professional sword swallowcr, I re.-ippto'u'hcrj Mr. Mouse, and to our mutual surprise, easily caught him. "Now what do I do?" 1 tried frantically to remember, as 1 dangled the poor, struggling imi- mal by bis tail. As 1 slood thus trying to recall. 1 looked str.'iighl into-its fncj, and was overcome with a deep sense of pity for the helpless creature. "But you can't go on tickling him all day!" 1 told myself furiously. "Whnt'll you do?" Just then 1 heard John's key in the lock, and rushing to the dooi as be opened it, I threw Mr. Mouse into the street, where he scampered happily away. "O/ all things!" John ejaculated (To llr r- 'inurd.i ready have German Unrest In Saar Area Flares Anew .,' BEflLIN, 18. f/Ti—Potential pfrman unrest over Mi?
