""Recently, however, well-heeled party-goers, commercial spon- J ors and hard-working members f organizations presenting these functions have been looking hard at the high cost of giving the *"**^all and asking, ~af"Is charity getting enough?" -Recently, the N.Y.

It dc jided that charity was not. the $47,000 raised at $50 a ....j among Now York's gilt y dged society a mere $6,500 Ssftached the coffers of the intend- J^ed charity. While vehemently protesting any mishandling of *"""'s, the promoters agreed to the ball. The Incident In this city where upwards of 120 such society functions are hold annually, served to sharpen concern over what is charity's just due. "There is no set formula for determining the proper appropriation of fund-raisers," experts summoned by the Supreme Courts agreed. Those were representatives of the National Information Bureau, a non-profit organization providing confidential reports on individuals and organizations solicit- ng contributions, and a local counterpart, the Conlribuotrs Ill- formation Bureau. In 1961 Bernard Perlman, former director of the Charities Registration Bureau in Albany, told a reporter that, "We have only the barest financial information about how these balls are run. From my own experience I know that money can be drained off through kickbacks from hotels, caterers, florists, wino merchants and others to the publicist or banquet manager that runs the ball." Yet any Tilly who has toiled for a fund-raising event is aware that expenses can soar legimale- ly in the course of outshining .the.last shindig.

These are small, hollow receptacles which are inserted in holes drilled into the convrete with either a power drill with a carbide tipped bit or with a star drill. When a screw or special bolt is inserted into the shield or anchor, the receptacle expands, firmly gripping itself inside the concrete. In drilling the hole, make it slightly smaller than the shield or anchor Which Is tapped into place to make a snug fit. Masonry nails also can be used. These arc hammered into the concrete like ordinary nails, but require strong blows. Some of the new epoxy adhesives permit the attachment of wood or other materials directly to the concrete. Furring strips or studding are hammered onto nails sticking out from the metal squares.

Without the heiV of three sponsors, the total cost of April in Paris Ball in I960, would have been nearly $96,000. This ten- year-old affair originated by the piarty-tosser extraordinaire, the late Elsie Maxwell, attracts comers at $300 a couple. Yet despite its colossal costs, the ball netted $200,030 more for a variety of French-American charities. And it has done even better by another $100,000 in the two years since. In Miami, Fla. Marianne Reynolds in assuming the chairmanship of the Heart Ball a few years back, dented her tobacco money by absorbing some of the costs. For tha April in Paris Ball last year Mrs. Alfred Levitt took over the decorating job as well as the financial responsibility for it. Two-pound, glossy programs fat with socalled "good will' ads, as well as sponsoring companies seeking a social image for itself or its products are other areas of revenue for the charity ball. Still, the crux of the charity ball's financial success is the ticket buyer, and the competition for his signed check grows with each new whingding crowding onto the social calendar. His motives for attending may bo more political, business, and social than charitable. A few years ago another veteran Miami charity ball chairman, Mrs. Robert Z. Greene, attributed the popularity of these social events to the vanishing servant and smaller homes, which preclude lavish entertaining. Now the host with the wherewithal purchases a table for ten and repays his social obligations with no fuss, no muss, and plenty of prestige. If he can think of a plausible excuse for his absence, ho can miss his own party. Best of all, and thanks to charity, the party is tax deductible, if the ball's expenses are underwritten by private donors or commercial firms. But only part of it is deductible when the party's expenses are paid out of the gross. Sometimes th Ialx>r involved in selling tickets, ads for programs, seeking gifts as game prizes, and seeing to the myriad details of arranging the ball do not seem worth Ui£ net cash raised. One professional organization seriously considered assessing its members for the amount, and event, but reconsidered in view of the bonuses, free publicity and abandoning their annual charity community status. All in all, and despite mutter- in;js of waste, inefficiency, and even gvaft, the charity ball continues to thrive. As Bernard Perlman said, "Even though the \ expenses sound fantastic, it still' remains one of the cheapest ways of raising money." Illinois Switchboard For Antarctica KENDALL HILL, 111. (AP) — The South Pole may be 8,000 miles from Charlie Vannoy's home, but the 35-year-old television engineer is in personal contact with members of "Operation Deep Freeae." Vannoy operates an amateur radio station three nights a week. Through radio contact with amateur radio operators in Antarctica, homesick scientists and servicemen are able to speak to relatives snd friends through a process called telephone "patches." "Telephone patches," Vanuoy explained "are madq after I re- ctJve a radio call requesting the j contact of a relative or friend. 11 call the party bv teephone. Then I place my radio receiver near the transmitting equipment enabling the parties to converse." MOSCOW (AP) — Threatened with another bad crop year, P r e m-i e r Khrushchev today opened a second special winter meeting of the Communist party Central Committee to discuss farm problems. The Communist partv organ, Pravda. said the Kremlin meeting will work out measures for increasing farm production by tlio use of more chemical fertilizers, more mechanization and Ihn application of scientific principles. The Central committee's membership is about 33lf, but hundreds of agricultural experts nnd political watchdogs also are attending. Western newsmen are barred from the meeting. The meeting is a continuation of the Dr-c. 0 plenum. That one dealt primarilv with nlans to build a chomicnl fertilizer industry, which Khrushchev hones will boost agricultural production.

By JOE RIGERT OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — For every man behind prison walls, there is often a woman who helped put him there, says Mrs. Charlotte Paul Groshell. As a nationally-known author, mother of two teen-aga sons and only woman on the Washington State Parole Board, Mrs. Groshell should know. While other housewives chat with neighbors over a cup of coffee, Mrs. Groshell talks to convicts — usually morn than 150 a month. I Many of their troubles, she j says, can be traced to the opposite sex, whether wives, ex-wives, ! girlfriends, or domineering, entirely-permissive, or overly-po- HEALTH CAPSULES liv Michncl A.

In recognition of t'.iis fact, Mrs. Groshell contends a woman can make an important contribution to a parole board. Thlt it particularly hire, she says, in talking to the women who await the convic-s when they are freed from prison on parole. "Almost all the inmates have a committee dedicated to getting them out," she says. "It may include a wife, an ex-wife who feels guilty, or an employer who wants to help. "I'm not saying they will get different treatment from me, but I can really level with the women. The more I can do to get them ready, the better chance he has of succeeding when he gets out." Mrs. Groshell also says, some convicts actually find it easier to confide in a woman than in a man. This is often the case among younger inmates if they are dependent types, or feel that other men have done them wrong. "Poisibly the general public thinks a woman will be easy, emotionally view all criminals as delinquent little boys," she says. "But there are many occasions when my suggestions' for sentences have been tougher than those of the man I am working with on a case." Mrs. Groshell says she has no illusions about criminals. She said a certain percentage of the prison population is just plain mean. "They are not sick, or insane, or youngsters," she says. "They are just unwilling to stand on their own two feet, share their part of the responsibility and pay [ taxes. So they live on the rest ! of the population as long as they can." When the joined the five member board a year ago. Mrs. Groshell brought with her the popular misconception that there is a criminal type and that other | citizens are incapable of serious crimes. Now she believes that, "There is nothing that anyone would not or could not do if certain pressures or circumstances push him to that point. Some people have low tolerance. The rest of us stand up to the pressure." Murderers are the best parole risks, she contends. Alcoholic check writers are the heaviest repeaters. Once a foreign correspondent, co-publisher of two weekly newspapers with her husband, and author of several books, Mrs. Groshell is thinking of writing another. It will be called "The Yegg and I."
