JT.BHUAUV 3, 1947 Noteworthy Survey A survey shows that tin.- mil ion's newspapers nnd sports writers are just about split on the question of publishing' #amhlii|^ odds, Because oi' the recent. boxing nnd foot- hall bribe scandals, nnil the subsequent deniniitl for a cleanup in sports, the I'nited Press has polled newspapers on the question o!' publishing odds. And heiv is wlint the survey shows: Fifty-two per cent of the papers nnd writers think thiit gambling' in sports could l>e curbed somewhat if odds were eliminated. The snme percent aji'c is in favor of dropping any mention of .niiin- hlin.y; odds, It's a different matter when'it comes to publishing ll prol)!ible pitchers" during the bnscball season. Kiglity-foiir per. .cent of tin? editors polled s;iy (hot probable pitchers should be published—](> per cent contend tlmt. the publishing of this news fosters gambling. Nearly one-third of those polled say they'll continue to publish probable pitchers even if baseball officials ask them not to, A slim majority of .">;"> per cent believe • that odds are not. important to» pre-game stories. This group adds, however, that the stories should point out which team or man is favored. Then, there is one group that feels that it's cricket, to publish odds on a professional ^ame—but not on a scholastic contest. Housing In Holland The housing situation in Holland is much worse than in the United States, according to reports from thtit country. Besides the more than a quarter of a million houses lost by bombing during the war, many thousands more have boon torn down in order to use their lumber in rebuilding dykes and in erecting manufacturing? plants while the war was still going on. Only houses lost by bombing are permitted to l>e replaced for their owners' occupation, all other housing being set aside for rental purposes, Dutch businessmen assert thnt there have been almost no.i strikes there since the war, and that all are working together in an effort to solve the problem of housing. In a small country with.a homogeneous population, unity of action is easier to achieve, but it is safe to assume that with a real effort on everyone's part, a campaign could bo launched in the United States which might, actually work out: this issue. Teamwork is apt to get better results than bickering, any time, anywhere. Political Bouquet Senator Taft, in a speech before a group of Maine Republicans, added a light note to the somber tone of political discussion. .Ignoring, for the moment, labor prol>- Jems, the tariff and the race question, he brought forth the pronouncement that Republicans, both men and women, are better-looking than Democrats. So far. TIO Democrats have challenged Mr. Taft Athletics are fine, but a little head wnd handsome men for comparison with their competitors on the other side of t.he fence, but. doubtless someone will soon come forward with statistics or photographs or some other form of evidence to use in refutation of the Ohio Senator's bold statement. Or may ho i-hoy will content themselves with "Handsome is as handsome docs," arjri - trie Hepublicans will reply, "Oh V«hV" Life in a democracy is so interesting! One cnnee operating to. bring prices down, if a suggestion overheard on the street is true: the novelty of spending money lavishly wears off. Or is said to •wear off, by those who move in circles thus handle it.
