Capitol Betting Center BOSTON (AP)--The concern of he Massachusetts Legislature wer widerpread gambling opera- ions centered today on illegal letting under its very own roof --the slate house. Capitol police raided a state house janitors' room Friday and confiscated what they described an several numbers pool slips. They also' found pencils and a pad of paper like those used by bookies hidden in the emergency telephone compartment of the elevator used each day by Gov. John A. Volpe. A. Volpe. Earlier the U.N. Expected To Pay U.S. WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sen. George D. Aiken, R-Vt, says $30 million of the proposed J200-mil- lion U.N. bond issue would be used to pay U.S. claims against the world organization. Aiken said in a Senate speech yesterday "Something in the neighborhood of 530 million of the United Nations debt is owed to the United States, mostly to the Air Force, and. . .we are being asked to buy $100 million worth of the 25-year bonds of the United Nations so that it can turn around and pay $30 million to the United States." Aiken also told the Senate it took 10 days of "frustration and exasperation" to get the State De- pariment to provide him witr the names of U.N. creditor nations. He said he was given a list of 27, including the United States "but I was requested not to make it public." President Kennedy has urged Congress to approve the purchase of half the proposed $200 million bond issue to retire U.N. debts. The bonds, bearing 2 per cent interest, would be retired · over a 25 year period out of general U.N. assessments. Kennedy has said that nations which refuse to pay their share of special assessments--Russia is one--nevertheless pay their annual assessments to retain their denfal practice more than 10 years ago when felled by multiple sclerosis, never regained consciousness. He was in a coma in the latter stages. Two sisters were outide his room when the last ember of life flickered out. Ironically, Dr. Streem's father, Harry, 72, was discharged from the same hospital Friday after more than a week's stay for a heart ailment. The father, aware his son was in critical condition, was given the news of his death. But relatives kept him shielded from the bizarre circumstances, fearing it might have an adverse affect on his condition. "It's been an awful strain on all of us," said one relative. Funeral services were set for ·Sunday at the Miller Memorial Funeral Qiapel. It was at that mortary that the sfrrange turn of events occured last Sunday. Seventy-five minutes after a doctor had checked Dr. Streem's respiration, heartbeat and pulse, a funeral attendant was wheeling the stretcher into the preparation room. He was startled to see the form breathing. Two brothers, Leon and Larry Miller, administered oxygen, used -- Senate president and the House speaker moved jointly to fire Robert G. Connolly, head of the legislative document room, allegedly for taking part in bookie operations. Connolly retaliated quickly by charging the legislature with hypocrisy, asserting he knows of a dozen legislators who frequently place illegal off-track bets on the dogs and horses. Connolly denied he was a book-- He described himself as an amateur handicapper who often was called upon for his advice on which horses to bet on. He claimed he never placed a let in his life. vote. Failure to buy bond. Ken nedy said, "would serve the interests of the Soviet Union." Aiken replied sharply "I do not intend to accept this kind of dictation from anyone." He said he believes Kennedy's advisers are trying to discourage a full airing of U.N. financial affairs. MRS. MURPHY RITES The funeral of Mrs. E1 l.e n Leonard Murphy, widow of Hugh J. Murphy, of 1 Conrad Ct., took place today from the O'Neil Funeral Home to St. Augustin' Church A solemn high mass wa celebrated by the Rev. James F FitzSimon. pastor. The Rev. Fred erick W.

Bearers were Lee Dias, William Finn, Frank Lalli, George Randall, Frederick Scheibl and William Zisek. closed heart massage, and sped Pr. Streem in an ambulance to the hospital. The following day Dr. Streem's breathing and heart stopped .again --but only "for a minute or two," according to doctors. External heart massage, oxygen.and an in- .eision of the windpipe did the job. Later that day the patient was breathing without aid. But doctors were.frank in saying chances were "very slim" for recovery. Dr. Streem rallied some Tuesday, then, began sinking. Savage Wants License Check State Sen. Joseph A. Savage, Newport Democrat, said today that he is having a bill drawn up to make known names of those people connected with corporations who obtain or transfer liquor licenses. Savage said work on the bill had started earlier in the week and preceded an expression by Mayor Charles A. Hambly that such a bill would be desirable for better control of liquor licenses given out or .transferred by any community.
