Legion Views Legal Bingo Proposition CHICAGO (UPI) - Two resolu tions advocating legalized gambling in Illinois were to be pre« sented to the American Legion's state convention today. The measures recommend adoption of resolutions advocating legalized bingo and a state lottery. A Legion committee discussed the resolutions behind closed doors Thursday, before presenting them to the department's 1,600 delegates attending the annual con- convention. In 1960, the convention went on record in favor of legalized gam bling for charitable purposes. Last year, it voted down a similar proposal, after angry debate. The chief sponsor of the resolutions was Charles V. Falkenberg, commander of the Legion's Logan Square Post 405 on Chicago's Northwest Side. Post 405 intro duced the resolutions. Worked for Repeal The Chicago attorney, who four decades ago fought prohibition, said, "I didn't drink, but I introduced a resolution calling for the repeal of prohibition for every year from 1919 to 1931." "Everybody in Illinois I've talked to wants them (bingo games)," Falkenberg said. He said he expected opposition only from the ".blue noses, hard shelled and sanctimonious." The state lottery, he said, would solve the problem of providing the city and the state with more money without raising taxes. Both Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley and Gov. Otto Kerner said they needed more money, he- said. He estimated a state lottery would produce between $40 million and $60 million a year. He said he didn't know how his proposition would do. "It all depends on whether they're going to be narrow minded," Falkenberg said. Qolesburg Realster«Mail, Golesburq, Friday, Aug, 2. 1963 17 Smoke Dirties Son LONDON (UPI) - Mrs. Barbara Ellis was awarded $4 Thursday by the British railways as compensation because smoke from a locomotive covered her infant son with black specks shortly after he had been bathed. Aurora Downs Sale Stirs Creditors CHICAGO (AP) — The bankruptcy sale of the inoperative Aurora Downs race track for $1.2 million has met with objections from four creditors. They objected in a hearing Thursday before Judge Michael L. Igoe, who set Aug. 7 for further hearing. Edward Kelly, attorney for Sportservice, Inc., refreshment concessionaires, one of objecting creditors, said the sale of the track to Titus Haffa, a Chicago industrialist, would wipe out the creditors' interests. He said no appraisal of the property was used in establishing the price. Sportservive claims $50,000 liability. Other creditors objecting are: Orville P. Fox, original owner of the track; Charles P. McFarland, claiming $1,600 liability, and J.C. Granata, a stockholder, claiming $50,000 liability. The creditors contend that public sale of the 12%-acre track would increase the settlement of cents on the dollar for their claims. Kelly also said 23 acres of frontage along Illinois 31 near Aurora is worth $400,000 and a lease for other property incorporated into the track is worth $450,000. Legislation allowing winter racing dates in counties of less than a million population has been.) passed and, if signed by Gov. Otto Kerner, will increase the value of the track, Kelly said. */ Dear Penny, I have recently come home from the hospital after being treated for a nervous disorder. Before I was hospitalized, I was always Included in the group that got together in the neighborhood for coffee and a chat. Now I sec this same group cutting through back yards to get together without my seeing them. I am hurt and a little angry at being left out, hut 1 would like them to know they don't have to slip in back doors just because of me. STAY AT HOME Dear Stay at Home, Your coffee group is probably every bit as miserable as you are. I think oftentimes people are so afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing, that they just avoid the situation. I am sure that those friends would do or say nothing that would intentionally hurt you. Why don't you call and invite them all to your house for coffee the first time? This will tip them off that you are ready to socialize again and give them an easy opportunity to include you back in the group. Dear Penny, I have been interested in your comments on women's wearing shorts to go shopping on Main Street. I work in a downtown store, and I wonder what you think about the women who come downtown day after day with their hair In these big rollers? Some of them look like they're sporting antennae, and they wear nothing at all to hide these contrivances. I have seen some women wear these curlers so consistently that I'm beginning to wonder if that's their permanent hair-do. MIXED-UP MALE Dear M. M,, Any gal can be caught with her hair in rollers on an errand that simply has to be done; but if you're talking about going downtown in this state on purpose, that's something else. You can meet a woman on the street mascara'd ujj to here and leaving* a vapor trail of perfume a yard wide, but the illusion just isn't the same if you saw her yesterday with her hair in rollers. In my estimation, a woman is "on" anytime she steps out her front door. If she wants to make a good impression, she'd better leave the grooming aids where they belong. Dear Penny, My son and daughter-in-law have been married for several months now. When they were married, I asked her to call me "Mother ," but she persists in calling me by my first name to my face and just "Mrs. " to my back. This hurts and offends me, too. What would be the best way to broach the subject to her? MAME Dear Mame, I think it is hard for a daughter-in-law to start right off calling someone who is not, "Mother." Why not just settle for a first name basis? It really isn't so important what she calls you, if she says it with respect and devotion. It wouldn't be worth it to force your daughter-in-law into something that would only result in bitterness and ill-feeling. There just isn't that much in a name, Mame. PERSONAL TO J. B. Sometimes these things take time to heal, but in the meantime forget that foolish idea! Think of the grief it would bring to innocent people. Why don't you send me your name and address, and maybe I can send you some encouragement? This is Penny's first birthday! To the hundreds of you who have written, may I say "thank you" for making it such a fun year. Thinking of you . . . Penny Send your questions to Penny, In care of the Galesburg Regit* ter-Mail. Your letter will be answered either In this column or personally. Letters need not be signed unless a personal reply la desired. Lanrlis Pleads Guilty NEW YORK (AP)-James' M.

Avon Moves Ahead With Nursing Home AVON—"She's going through." R. K. Riley, mayor of Avon, today announced that Avon will get a new 48-bed nursing home soon, barring any unseen pitfalls.
