The agreement between the Pop ulation Council and GynoMed fol lows a year-long search for a com pany that would market the device with appropriate safety precautions, Zeidenstein said.

The commission would license three types of horse tracks: Class 1 tracks could have 44 or more racing days per year and be lo cated in an area with at least a pop ulation of 750,000. This catagory in cludes Dallas, Houston and San Antonio. No more than four Class 1 tracks could operate statewide and the application fee would be at least $15,000. Class 2 tracks could have 16 to 22 days of racing. Many of the tracks al ready existing in Texas would qual ify for this category. The application fee would be at least $7,500. Class 3 tracks could have no more than 16 days of racing per year and would be considered county fair tracks. The application fee would be at least $2,500. The three greyhound race tracks the commission could license would be limited to the Gulf Coast counties of Galveston, Nueces and Cameron. The license application fee for these tracks would be at least $20,000. “A race-track license applicant would have to be a United States citi zen and a 10-year resident of Tex as,” the bill states. If the applicant were a corpora tion, it would have to be incorpo rated in Texas and over 50 percent of the stock would have to be owned by Texans. Any partnership, firm or association applying for a race-track license would nave to reside in Texas at least 10 years. Restriction and enforcement du ties of the commission go beyond the licensing of the race-track’s owners, employees and jockeys. The com mission’s business includes approv ing all racing officials for each race and requiring drug testing for the animals before and after the each race, the bill states. Pari-mutuel literally means “a mu tual wager.” “The term refers to a betting pool in which those who bet on the win ners of the first three places in a race share the total amount of money wa gered, minus a percentage for the management of the track,” the bill states. The economic breakdown of the betting dollar would be distributed among the state, race winners and the race track operators. Of each betting dollar almost 82 cents would be returned to the bettor in the form of payoffs. The “takeout” is the remaining 18 cents. This 18 cents would be di vided as follows: 5 cents for the state tax, 5 cents for the race purse, and 8 cents for the track’s facility and im provements. an interpreter, - : task, but on Oc 1 ;. front of me p 1 :' • We needati^ 1 that’s why Fin' 4 ' i would bethel^ e middleweigb 11 0. start curtailing those activities. | )f That would have a dampen ing effect on how many people you would end up hiring. You wouldn’t change a hiring policy Tuesday because of something that happened on Monday, though.” I The stock market’s future ac tivity will determine whether re cruiting will diminish, Van Pelt said. “Depending on when and how much the stock market rebounds, there may be very little — if any — effect on hiring,” he said. The hoped-for rebound may not be imminent. Maurice said he does not expect a rapid or sub stantial rise in the stock market. “People are a little scared right now because they’ve taken quite a beating over the past couple of weeks,” Maurice said. “There has been so much volatility in the market that the people who got out are not looking to get back in until it settles down. I don’t look for another rapid decline, but I don’t look for a rapid rise either.” The market should pull back up slowly over the next year, Maurice said. The capital and manufacturing capability of the United States has not been lost, so a recession is unlikely. “We won’t have a recession purely because the stock market failed,” he said. “The only thing that could cause a recession is if Congress and the administration panic and pass a tax increase. This would cut purchasing power and consumer spending, which could pull us into a mild recession later this year or early next year.” FREE Paul Mitchell Sculpting Spray at BENEFIELD & CO.
