That there is now due and unpaid on said nets the sum of ABOLISHING A JOB’ AUSTIN Representative Red Berry of San Antonio, hugging close to his desk to the right of the Speaker’s stand, has been waylaying everyone who will listen and presenting his straightforward arguments for legalized horse racing in Texas. He does not use the language of a college debater, but his arguments are sharper than most of them could think up. First off he shows you the April 27, 1960, Wall Street Journal, in which he has circled an item reporting that tax receipts from horse racing last year shot up nearly ten percent, to $243 million, in the 24 states in which betting on the nags is legal. “Those newspapers that say this has no chance to winit’s got a helluva chance to win,” he said. “I know this thing’s got a helluva chance to win. It’s a helluva lot of money, i’s a helluva tourist attraction. t’s no one-way proposition. Last year 56 million people went to see horse racing, two million more than football and baseball combined.” Berry, who has owned race horseshe sold his last one in El Paso a few weeks ago and who has been known to gamble, himself, believes racing would bring in $14 million a year in taxes. He would give the counties with the tracks two percent of each day’s and would split the state’s $14 million even with all the other counties. California raises $37 million a year for state services from its race tracks; New York, $96.5 million; Ohio, $12 million, Berry said. “And look at all the people it would bring in herethey buy gasoline and booze and cigarettes,” on which there are sales taxes. “I know we tried it before in Texas, but they didn’t know what in the hell they were doing. They didn’t know a horse from a mule. I know the situation. I had horses all my life,” Berry said. Drawing forth a green sheet bearing the stamp of the Texas Highway Department tourist division, Berry showed that in 1957 Texas had 10,300,000 tourists who spent $531 million in Texas, but in 1959 only 9,600,000 tourists spent $431 million. “That’s not hearsay, that’s the Texas Highway Departmentwe \(3 ,npped off $100 million in two years,” Berry said. In the city of Las Vegas alone, he said, income from tourists “not counting gambling” totaled $1,from 7,600,000 tourists last year. “That’s only three times as much as the whole state of Texas with a population in that city of about 65,000 people. In Texas the tourists spend $43 a head, in Las Vegas about $150. Who’s got the undesirables? Texas got the broke’, that’s what I saythe broke tourists.” Berry advocates submission of a constitutional amendment to permit local option elections in no more than seven specified Texas counties, Bexar, Dallas, Tarrant, Harris, Galveston, El Paso, and Midland. He thinks El Paso may not favor the idea since there is a track now in nearby New Mexico. Berry’s legislation would create a five-man state horse racing commission. If passed, this would put Gov. Price Daniel, a Baptist, in the position of supervising horse racing. Berry said off-handedly: “One thing about thishe can’t do a damn thing about it. If It pages he can’t veto it.” \(The governor of the state has no option about submitting to the voters a constitutional amendment approved by the Can’t Help It In accompanying legislation, Berry would set up an identification bureau to photograph and fingerprint all persons working at the tracks and to photograph and keep records on all horses racing in Texas. Counties in which the tracks were located would be responsible for policing their own tracks. Berry says his law will be copied after California’s, which has been revised every two years since 1933. Berry says the San Antonio chamber of commerce wrote ten other chambers in cities with racing. He showed copies of three letters: One, from the manager of the Hot Springs, Ark., chamber, saying the track there employs 150 persons a day, yields $1 million a year to the state, and is a tourist attraction. Another, from the director of research for the New Orleans chamber, saying there are two tracks in that city, that the arim.e rate shows “only a minute increase” during the racing easons, that retail trade and sales tax income increase to a slight degree, and that the city of New Orleans gets five percent of its income, $1.4 million last year, from the tracks. A third, from an executive of the Phoenix, Ariz., chamber, saying the track there is good for the tourist business and that tourists spend $150 million annually in Phoenix. Florida, Berry said, divides half its revenue from racing with the counties of the state. Volusia County, Fla., uses its part of the state revenue to supplement teachers’ salaries $175 each a year. What about the prospect of a working man going to the track LEGALS TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that Otto C. Pfluger, Werner M.
