But the number of rewards for supplying usable information is on the wane. 5 Nmv that Monday's incom» " fax deadline is past, IRS can ex- i pect a flood of mall cUtmi-g * thaf one person or another a cheated on his tax return.

Tho number who actually collect a reward is relatively small — fi24 for the last comphtefiscal year— and is expected to got smaller. Two years bafore, 792 persons got. rewards, Officials said l .he computer system novv in complete operation can uncover errors and omissions on tax returns before the informer can act.

Court Rules Favorable to Athletic Club NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Athletic Club has been successful in its attempt to quash a .subpoena of its records by the City Commission on Hu- mu Rights. Justice Hyman Korn of the Manhattan Supreme Court ruled Monday that the NYAC cannot be compelled to open its membership records to the commission. The commission launched an investigation of the club after the NYAC track meet of Feb. 16 in Madison Square Garden. The moet was boycotted by many Negro athletes and picketed for its alleged exclusion of Negroes from membership.

In its 102 years, the factory has produced wheels for the royal coach of Louis Napoleon; field artillery caissons used in the Spanish-American War and World War I; and circus wagons. Today, most of its business comes from the Amish, who still use wagons and buggies, and demands for replacement wheels on antiquated or restored vehicles.

A bill calling for the observance of Washington's Birthday, Memorial Day, Veterans Day and Columbus Day on Mondays has beon approved by the committee. But don't pack that weekend bag yet. A favorite of the business community, which thinks it wo-ild make for more efficient work and production schedules and less absenteeism—and strongly backed by the travel agencies and airlines—the bill hasn't stirred much enthusiasm among the general public. And it has aroused surprisingly strong opposition from pa* triotic societies and veterans organizations with an interest in a specific holiday, and church groups with an interest in Sunday church attendance. They've expressed fears that regular three - day holidays would lure people into unpatriotic and impious endeavors on those occasions. Such opposition pretty well scuttled the original Mondiy holiday bill before the committee last year. When the first session of Congress ended, only Memorial Day remained in a bill that would have also moved Washington's birthday, Independence Day, Veterans Day and Thanksgiving to Monday. It was then that Rep. Robert McClory, R-I11., chief sponsor of the bill, discovered Christopher Columbus. For years Americans of Italian descent have cherished the idea of a national holiday commemorating Columbus. And for years Rep. Peter W. Rodino, D- N.J., a senior judiciary Committee member, has introduced bills establishing such a holiday. Many states observe Oct. 12 as Columbus Day but the bills for a national holiday never got anywhere.

The night before there had been bedlam Jn the Garden's big, main arena as 17,250 screaming spectators witnessed a classic Stanley Cup hockey game. Culture, though, came quietly to the Garden with the press preview of its Art Gallery. The people spoke softly and moved slowly around the 3,800 feet of the carpeted exhibition area. On view were 51 paintings, etchings and scultpures depicting outstanding athletes and great moments in sports. The collection is worth about $750,000. There was Joe Louis knocking out Max Schmeling in their famous second fight, Jack Dempsey blasting Luis Firpo through the ropes and Bobby Jones hitting a golf ball. Several persons gathered around an impressive painting of Big Daddy Upscomb and others ware attracted by sculptures of Bob Cousy, Jesse Owens and Casey Stengel. There was, too, a scene of a golf match painted by the great Remlrandt in 1654. Someone cracked, "I wonder if they had to fill out their o - vn scorecards in those days." The inaugural exhibition is titled "The Artist and TheSports- man," and will be opened to the public starting Friday. The admission charge in 50 cents. The exhibitions, which will be changed about every two months, are being staged by the National Art Museum of Sports which says it hopes to "enliston the side of art the public's intimate knowledge and enthusiasm for sport."

Soviet Linkup Reveals U.S. Space Lag By BOBHORTON AP Military Writer WASHINGTON (AP) _ The Soviet Union's second linkup of unmanned Cosmos satellites catches the U.S. military space project languishing nearly four years behind schedule. The Air Force's manned orbiting laboratory program originally aimed for a first launch late last year or early 1968 but that goal has slipped because of technical problems to mid-1971, officials say. In addition to the time lag the cost of MOL, as the program is known, has escalated from the originally estimated $1,5 billion to nearly $2.5 billion. The Soviets, apparently getting set to put men into space again, reported Monday a successful linkup of two unmanned spaceships. They were separated again after 3 hours and 50 minutes. Monday's linkup duplicated a feat first performed by the Soviet Union last Oct. 30. This country's MOL program aims at sending a team uf astronauts orbiting for a month of experiments to determine how well man can operate in space. The long-range view is that someday U.S. astronauts may be able to operate military command posts orbiting the earth. The manned flights- to be preceded by twy unmanned shots— will involve a two-part spacecraft lifted by a gigantic Titan 3C booster with two million pounds of thrubt. The front end will be a modified Gemini capsule in which two astronauts will nd^ skyward.

It was his fourth straight complete game. Rebel pitcher Fred Setser gave up six hits and accounted for his team's lone run with a leadoff home run in the eighth.
