Parimutuel Bill to Senate But Excludes Dog Racing DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Iowans would no longer have to leave the state to attend or bet on a horse race under a bill introduced in the Iowa Senate Tuesday. The bill, which would authorize one parimutuel horse track In each Iowa county, is sponsored by Sens. George Kinley, D-Des Moines, Charles Miller, D-Burlington, James Griffin, R- Councll Bluffs, and Michael Blouin, D-Dubuque. Betting on dog races would not be permitted. "There have been projections of all the way up to $3 million profit for the state in the first year, but I project $1 million in net revenue to the state for the first year," Kinley said. Under the bill tracks could be Operated by nonprofit corporations, including charities with no more than one track permitted In any one county. The track would pay to the corporation 12 per cent of the money bet in each race, 3 per cent to the state general fund and return 85 per cent of the money bet as winnings, The state would also receive a 15-cent admission tax on each ticket sold to the track. The state racing commission, made up of six commissioners would set up racing dates with tracks in counties having a population of 75,000 or less paying $50 for each racing day, tracks in counties with a population of 75,000 to 100,000 paying $100per day and over $100,000 paying $200 per day. Kinley estimated that in addition to the direct profits to the state, horse racing could "bring up to $50 million in new industry to the state in related industries such as horse breeding." The bill would prohibit horse racing on Sunday and Kinley said it would set up strict controls on betting—at the track only and prohibiting gambling houses. The Des Moines senator quoted an Iowa Bureau of Criminal Investigation report showing that there had been no increase in crime in Nebraska because of legalized parimutuel betting there. "Col. James Kruger, the director of the Nebraska Safety Patrol, stated there had been no increase in any type of Pregnant girl doesn't know where to turn By Abigail Van Buren © WJ •» cmuM TribvM-N. y. Ntwi sy»«., IK. DEAR ABBY: I am 19, and am pregnant nearly five months. I am not trying to make excuses for myself because I know I was foolish, but I really thought I was in love. I dropped out of college because I was so worried I wasn't eating or sleeping, and I couldn't make my grades. I can't tell my parents what's wrong with me because it would kill my mother. My father thinks I am lazy, and he beat me twice last week with a belt. My legs are all black and blue. I have been living on tea and coffee and know I should be seeing a doctor, but I can't go to our family doctor because he would tell my parents. I don't have a penny to my name and don't know where to turn. Please tell me if there is a home for unwed mothers near here. I'll walk there if I have to. IN TERRIBLE TROUBLE DEAR IN: Please send me your name and address at once. I am sure I can help you. DEAR ABBY: I have an aunt who always called me her "favorite niece," and she is getting on in years. She told me many times she wanted me to have her diamond ring, which is valued at $10,000. She said she wanted me to have it while she is still living and can see me enjoy wearing it. [I am 33 and married.] Well, a few weeks ago she got this ring out of her safety deposit box and asked me to come to her house so she could give it to me. I came, and she told me how much she loved me and she gave it to me. We both cried, and I kissed her and she put it on my finger. The next day she called my mother raving and screaming that her ring was "missing" and she said I had visited her the day before and she "showed me" the ring, and she is sure I took it! My mother called her lawyer and asked him what to do, and he said that he would have to "study" the case because he had never had anything like this in his practice before. In the meantime, I'm afraid I'll be arrested if I keep the ring, and can't prove she gave it to me. It's my word against my aunt's. Please tell me what to do. I like the ring-but not that much. BEWILDERED IN TEXAS DEAR BEWILDERED: If I were you I would return the ring at once. Your aunt Is obviously disturbed. Should •he have a change of heart, and want to give you the ring, don't accept It unless she provides you with written proof that the hat GIVEN it to you. DEAR ABBY: This concerns the husband who disturbed the entire neighborhood by honking his horn early every morning as a farewell signal to his wife. My husband and I have a little farewell routine when he leaves for work every morning at 3:31 a. m. I flip the porch lights off and on a few times, and he in turn flashes his headlights off and on. That way we don't bother anybody. W. 5TH ST., SIOUX CITY, IA. DEAR W. STH: That's nice. I hope you don't have any Miy neighbors who figure It's a signal that your hutoaad Just left and the coast H clear. DEAR ABBY: Why is it that a man in his twenties can fo about being a gay dog, hugging, pinching, flirting with the women, and everybody thinks he's Just being a real man," and they Just laugh it off. But if a man in his seventies or eighties does it, you, Dear Abby, and others like you call him "sick" or a "dirty old man." Healthy senior citlsens have sex urges, too, you know. Or do you? The poor amorous senior citizens are certainly an abused and misunderstood lot. OUTRAGED IN LOS ANGELES DEAR OUTRAGED: Hold It!

The Des Moines Democrat said that 30 states currently have legalized horse racing and all are profitable for the state. Of the states surrounding Iowa, South Dakota, Nebraska and Illinois have legal horse racing. "It's estimated by South Dakota and Nebraska that 50 per cent of their participants coming to the race tracks are Iowans," Kinley said. The Des Moines Democrat said a recent survey of governors in 27 states where parimu­ tuel horse racing is allowed showed all 27 said it resulted in a net tax gain for the state and 26 said they did not believe it affected morals in their state. The 27th did not answer the question on morals.

CLARK AIR BASE, The Philippines (AP) — The bracelets are nickel-plated copper bands inscribed with a name, rank and date. They are worn by scores of thousands of Americans who treasure those named as next of kin even though they have never met them. But now the time for wearing them has almost past. The names on the bracelets are of Americans imprisoned or missing in Indochina, and the dates show when they disappeared or were captured, To the wearers, the thin metal bands were a bond of sympathy with the imprisoned men, a way to show that they cared. The California-based Voices in a Vital America organized the campaign several years ago and mailed out thousands. With the POWs coming home, the bonds will be cut.

COAST TO COAST STORE ^"J»i "I'm going to take mine off and break it in two," said 14- year-old Connie Schell, the daughter of a noncommissioned Air Force officer, "When he gets out he won't need me anymore," she said, An estimated 3,000 bracelets are being worn on Clark Air Base, the first stop for the released American POWs on their way to the United States. The whole family of one noncommissioned officer is wearing them. Kids playing with model aircraft on the grassy lots at Clark have the bright metal bands on their wrists. Nurses at the camp hospital, fighter pilots' wives and red cross workers wear them, S.Sgt. Vicki Graham who works for the base newspaper, pored over the lists of POW names released by Hanoi and being printed on a news ticker. "He's just gotta be on the list, he has to be," she said. She was looking for the name of S.Sgt. Steven Adams, captured Oct. 18, 1966. She has been wearing a bracelet with his name for two years. "If he is finally on the the list, and comes through Clark, then I'll do all I can to find him and give the bracelet," she said. Tight security restrictions probably will prevent many bracelet-wearers from getting too close to the POWs at Clark. But camp authorities are considering a proposal to collect all the bracelets and give them to the returning men.
