A citizens group protested open gambling to District Judge Mark Piclirell and demanded a Grand Jury investigation. PicUrell called a special session of the Grand Jury. Before the Grand Jury met, District Attorney Hawkins filed bills of information against a group of gamblers. Judge Pickrell lined them up t o ' $ 1 0 0 each and handed out several suspended jail sentences. Dixon contended that small fines without jail sentences "could not in any way be a deterrent to vio- latort of the law." The newspaper published a listing of names and criminal records. During the newsmen's trial, the slate charged the newspaper had listed under the names of three gamblers the criminal records belonging to three other men with the same names.

But there are reports her gold and dollar reserves are continuing to drop, despite the strenuous efforts of the Churchill government to halt if.

The United States, on the oilier hand, raked in $236 million dollars more of gold during January. Since last July 1, this country has added $1,241,000,000 to its store of gold. In large part this was due to! our booming foreign trade. Last' year we sold more than 15 b i l - j lion dollars worth of foreign I goods, a record for any one year. I But that four billion dollar d i f - l fercncc is the trouble spot for the j rest of the worlrl. It means they owe us four billion dollars over and above the amount of goods they were able to sell us. They pay the difference with gold--or with dollars that the U. S. tax payers give them in loans aric grants. Buyini Cut Rack Britain has cut hack her buying from us riraslk-ally, but even so she had a trade deficit of 296. million dollars in January, France lad a 100 million dollar trade deficit in January. Both countries try to lay most of the blame on the arms program which the United States sponsors 'or the free world. They charge 'Irst, that we have cut back our buying of raw m aterials from hem unnecessarily -- citing tin and rubber stockpiling slowdowns n this country. And they charge secondly that we have raised the price of our raw materials which they must buy from us If they are to rearm. But bankers here say European defense efforts haven't played as large a part as that. They say Europe was buying raw materials for many other reasons--payine premium prices for copper and leadj for example, in the same great civilian rush -to buy that twice swept this country during periods of war jitters. France also has been particularly hard hit by inflation. Prices there have risen much faster and higher than here. British inflation has also outstripped ours, but not i badly as in France. The gold crises is likely to come to a boil soon. Austerity abroad may halt the flow of gold from Europe to the United States. Chances are however, that tho United States will be asked once more to come to the financial aid of its Allies against Communism, Churchill got quite a bit of help when he was here. France would like to try that too. year. India Edwards, vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee and director of thp women's division, said Vice President Alben Barkley suggested the project. The three "couriers" will spend month here at t h e . p a r t y ' s national headquarters. Then they'll tour the nation.
