ALTON BOSTON (AP) - Jesse Owens, winner of four gold met als in track at the 1938 Olym pics, was added to the Ameri can League's Baseball publi relations staff Tuesday. With all the talk about gun legislation these days, and there is a lot at all levels, the National Rifle Association has offered ail its resources including the cooperation of its more than 55,000 firearms safety and police instructors, to help fight crime in the U.S. and to develop a model state gun law. Frank'in L. Orth, NBA Executive Vice President, testifying before the Senate Juvenile Delinquency Subcommittee, recently, warred against the inequities and dangers of proposed firearms registration laws on a national level, and proposed, instead, full cooperation from NRA in developing a model gun law to be offered as a guide to the legislature of each state. Orth defended the firearm it- elf, explaining that NRA dis. ents from the viewpoint of oth- TS who would ascribe to fire- .rms "those defects and defici- incies wnich we know spring rom other causes." He attacked the concept of ederal registration of guns as restrictive and warned that it :ould lead to a drpivation of the right to private gun ownership. Conservation Would Suffer Appearing with Orth at the hearing, Harold W. Glassen, NRA President, warned that the nation's entire conservation )rogram has been threatened in he drive to enact registration or icensing >aws for guns. He cittd President Johnson's message of June 24 to state; which fail to enact gun licensing laws, terming it "a bare facec threat" that endangers "not on ly the interests of the hunte and sportsman but of ever; American interested in the pres ervation of natural resources. The President bad proposed that any state which fails to pass gun licensing laws that meet federal standards should be penalized by federal withholding of their Join the Holiday Midget Caravan and AMR Motorcycle Races MIDGET AUTO RACES * Thursday Nile • July SPRINGFIELD SPEEDWAY 1/4 Mile High Banked Dirt ...,$1500 By-Pass 66 and Clear Lake, Springfield, III. * Saturday Nile • July 6 LAKE HILL SPEEDWAY INTERSTATE 870 to INTERSTATE 344 to BIG BEND '/• Mile Paved ...$1500 VALLEY PARK, MO.

(The Interior Department announced on June 16 that $22.1 million in Fish and Wildlife Funds will be made available to the 50 states beginning July 1 from funds collected from excise taxes on guns and ammunition; tUe funds from the government are matched by the states.) Glasser termed the Presi- .ent's message "a blow aimed )elow the belt of every conser- /ationist in the land whether he a spovtsman or not." These unds, to said, "have long been he bulwark of an American lonservafion effort that has lift- id this Country into the envia- ile role as the world's leader n the wise use of natural re- ources." "This portion of the proposal is not more than a heavyhanded threat to every sportsman in the country to acquiesce to political expediency or suffer irreparable damages to the natural resources of bis home state," Glassen declared. Glassen estimated, on the basis of the experience of several states and cities that already have gun registration aws, thst the cost of national registration could approach a minimum of $5 billion for initial registration alone. And he warn- d that only law abiding citizens ,vould a'jide by its provisions ile criminals would ignore the law. 24-Hour Fans' Service For Ticket Information ST.
