When a new 'penal code Went into effect Jan. 1 opponents of the measure asserted It was the first step toward turning Waikikl into another Las Vegas. But there has been no evidence of large Scale organ- zied gambling under 'the law that prohibits making a profit for handling or processing a game or bet. Proponents of the gambling section said the provision about so-called house profits would keep out organized gambling. •"•"'_ . There have been a number of police raids with numerous persons a r r e s t e d and charged with running or participating in games in which the operator took a cut of Pennsylvania starts year without budget for 5th time United Press International HARRISBURG, Pa. - For the fifth straight year, Pennsylvania has entered a new fiscal year without a budget. The state officially ran out of money when the 1972-1973 fiscal year expired at midnight, Saturday, before a state House-Senate conference committee could compromise on Democratic and Republican spending plans. The committee conferees, three Democrats and three Republicans, were to meet Sunday night in an attempt to bridge the S180-million gap separating them. Without a budget, the state has no authority to pay its bills, meet payrolls or issue welfare checks — some 36,000 of which are due to be received today. In past years, the legislature sometimes passed stopgap appropriations to fund government operations until a budget was reached. This year, however, stopgap bills passed only the House before the fiscal year expired. The dispute centered on how big a tax break to give Pennsylvanians this year. The GOP pushed for $324 million in tax relief, a plan that Democratic Gov. Milton J. Shapp said was designed to embarrass him in an election year by causing a budget deficit. Democrats sought a $142 million tax break, hoping to spend about $180 million more than the Republicans in such areas as public schools and mass transit authorities in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. < Both sides, however, had agreed to revise their tax relief figures before attending the Sunday night meeting. In case the committee failed to agree, Shapp asked suppliers of goods and services to the state to continue service with a promise payment would quickly follow enactment of a budget. The governor also asked the state's 113,000 employes to show up for work despite the possibility of "payless paydays" and requested banks to extend loans to the workers.

The most recent session of the state legislature passed several amendments to the new penal code, in what proponents said was * move to strengthen the gambling sections. One of the amendments put a $1,000 limit on individual daily winnings at any form of gambling.

The measure places the agency under the federal procurement law. The administration had sought a two - year authorization for the Peace Corps In February but the bill limits it to one year. amendments, the gambling section of the law eventually will open the door to organized gambling interests. He condemned the amendment which placed the $1,000- a-day limit on gambling winnings, saying, "under that amendment, apparently' you are moral when you win $999.M in one day but if you win two cents more you sild- d6nfy are Immoral." Fukuda, six months after gambling was legalized, continued to maintain his stand that the new law "is an open license for professional gambling in Hawaii." He contended that eventually the-state will find itself condoning and even licensing organized gambling.
