BHI to Legalhe 6amblin9 Introduced In State Senate Cheyenne--Saturday, January 27, the deadli.ne for introduction of bills in both ttouses of the Legislature, brought an avalanche of new bills, the most import of which was the gambling bill in- troduoed in the Senate by Sena- tor Richard J. Luman of Pinedale, Sublette county. When both Houses adjourned Saturday, a total of 268 measures had been introdueed--ll2 in the ,Senate and 156 in the House. This is a few more tha.n were acted on at the session two years ago, but is about the general av- erage for a legislative session. Bill Legalizing Gambling Arouses Interest The bill providing for licens- ing of gam,bling, introduced at the ~Saturday session by Senator Luman has already aroused much activity among the pros and cons. It provides that counties may de- cide by an election of the people at a regular election whether or not they want gambling in their counties. If a majority of the people decide they want gam- bling, rules and regulations are set up to control the games. If a majority are against gambling, then the laws now on the statute books would apply. The bill is being pushed by the city officials of several towns and cities as a mea~s of raising more revenue for operating ex- penses. It is certain to meet with strenuous opposition. Former Governor Wants to Revamp Liquor Commission A bill introduced by former Governor Leslie A. Miller, now a State senator from Laramie coun- ty, l~rovides for a State liquor commission composed of four cit- izens appointed by the governor. The five elective state officers now compose the commission, which was created while Miller was Governor. If Miller's bill becomes e law, an executive director would be named under a merit system. The five elective state officers now select the commissioner. The bill also seeks to place all employees of the state liquor set- up under a merit system. JuBior College Bill Defeated by House in Close Vote The so-called junior college bill, proposing an enabling act to per- mit counties or groups of coun- ties to provide additional educa- tion beyond high school courses, was defeated i~ the committee of the whole in the House by the narrow margin of two votes--- 25 for and 27 against. Natrona county delegation introduced the bill, and it had a good chance of passing until Dr. J. L. ,Morris, president of the Wyoming univer- sity, spoke against it at an alum- ni dinner Monday night. After its defeat in the committee of the whole, the bill was indefinitely poslponed, but it is quite likely that it will come up at the next session of the Legislature. Other Bills of Interest Introduced Senator J. A. Farlien, Democrat of Washakie county, introduced a bill to create a board of watch- makers, composed of three licens- ed watchmakers, who would reg- ulate the watchmakers of the slate. The Senate Education Commit- tee introduced a bill requiring all children 'between the ages of 7 and 18 to attend school unless they are graduates from the 12th grade. When Senator E. Harold, Jos- endal of Natrona county, the only bachelor in the Senate, in- troduced a bill to revise the mar- riage laws, he was the object of much good-natured razzing by his fellow-Senators. At present a marriage ceremony must be per- formed in the county where the license was issued. Josendal's bill would makea marriage license good in any county in the state. Clarke Gapen, Repu~blican, of Big Horn county, introduced a bill requiring that justices of the peace have at least a high school education. A bill introduced by W. H. Harrison, Republican of Laramie county, would divide counties in- to commissioner districts. Caldwell Wants Governor to Get $1,000 a Month Dr. R. T.
