The stand was taken today by Mayor Len Harris, City Manager C. B. Kinnison, City Clerk E. E. Gill and backed by City Attorney Samuel B. Francovich after county commissioners Game Permits Win Approval The state gaming control board today recommended ap proval of 16 gaming license ap plications, including one which sees operator of the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas take ove the downtown New Pioneer club from operators of the Sahara Hotel. Flamingo operators A. B. Par-vin and Samuel Diamond are putting up 5250,000 for the new Pioneer transfer. Approved with the under standing that no immediate casino expansion is contemplated was the application of the Mar-dust-Desert Inn gambling operators to continue the 10 slot machines running at the Royal Nevada. The new group recently leased the big Las Vegas Strip Hotel. No action was taken on the request of Warren V. Bayley of the Las Vegas Hacienda to take over the new Frontier Hotel casino with an investment of $750,000. Other Las Vegas area licenses approved included minor working interests of John Hoban, Louis Miller and Vincent Sil-vestri in the Sahara Hotel, Cecil L. Lynch in new games at the New Fortune Club and Nelson Mitchell and Ira M. Smith for the Zanzibar in North Las e cas. In northern Nevada, an ap plication by Arnold R. Robbins and John Ross tor games at ins Tarry Steak House in Gardner ville was denied without prejudice to Ross because Robbins did not mention in his application that he had been fined $500 in 1951 for helping his brother escape jail in Ely, said the board. Reno area licenses recommended included. Richard L. Graves for Trader Dick's in Sparks. Eugene S. Hughes and Jay S. Hughes in the Cosmo Club, Carl N. Hicks for a 7.6 per cent, $50,000 in vestment in the Holiday Hotel, Roy E. Donatelli for 20 per cent of the Nevada Novelty Co. and Nplva G. Smith and Clark J. Guild Jr. as corporate officers in the Riverside Hotel. Crash Halts Fleeing Driver A motorist who attempted to flee from sheriff's deputies early Sunday morning luckily escaped injury when he drove his car Into "the side of a huge truck-trailer rig at East Fourth and North Sierra streets. The collision smashed the front of the auto which caught fire when it hit the truck's gas tank. Deputy Douglas Ingram said he began pursuit of an auto driven by Robert Leon Nichols, 20, of 721 F. St., Sparks, who forced the officer's auto off the road at the north city limits on highway 395. Ingram said Nichols attempted to ecape speeding toward town. Nichols ran through a flashing red traffic signal at the Fourth street intersection, and ran into the side of a truck driven by Llye A. Breeden, 44, cf 410 East Sixth St, said the daputy. After the collision, Nichols attempted to run from the scene, but was captured by Ingram who cited Nichols for reckless driving and resisting a pursuing police vehicle. Ingram said he extinguished the flames from Nichols' auto with hand equipment handed him by the truck driver. IX HOSPITAL WELLS Mary Gi'obs and Clara Prince of this city are patients at the Elko General hospital this week. ; - I decided Saturday to ask the city for rental fees. The plans to use the new voting machines, purchased two years ago by the county, in city elections in the Spring. AGREE TO 3IEET Commissioners ' had agreed to meet with the city to discuss rental fees after County Clerk Harry K. Brown noted that ren tal fees are used in other cities and counties to pay off voting machine costs. Brown noted Sat urday that in San Francisco machines are rented to private organizations for $10 per ma chine. ' Commissioner Raymond Ca purro said the city might save as much as $25,000 in the pri mary election in May and the general election in June. The county should get half of that for machine rentals, Capurro felt. ... Not so, Gill said today. He explained that the city spent a total of $9640 for the two elections in 1955. Machines would cut that cost in half in 1959 Kinnison said the city has $20,000 budgeted for election expenses witn coara woricers fees (which should be half of the $9640 cost this time) com ing out of that amount. Gill then pointed out that the city shouldn't have to pay for those machines at all. He said the citizens of Reno already are paying voting machine costs in the form of ad valorem taxes. Mayor Harris agreed. " don't think we should pay any thing." PRINXIPLE APPLIES Francovich also agreed. "It's my opinion that the process of holding and paying for elections always comes out of ad valorem taxes and this applies here. Just because machines are a more expensive method of conducting an election that doesn't change the principle of those machines." Kinnison noted that "I'm not adverse to dealing with the county because they may have honest expenses. I might even agree to pay a reasonable fee for expenses incurred. But peo ple in Reno make up the largest part of county voters. They shouldn't have to amortize the cost of the machines twice." Brown today said the quoted rental fee of possibly one half of $25,000, some $12,000, was "ridiculous." He noted also that a $10 per-machine fee would be too low a rental. He has suggested a meeting with city officials to figure out costs and to arrive at a reasonable rental. The city will need roughly 50 machines for all six wards, Gill said today.

That's because it isn't Fall, no matter what the weather man and the Reno Evening Gazette said Friday. Then the Gazette reported that Fall began at 2:3$ a. m. Sunday. Actually, it begins at 5:10 a. m. Tuesday. An explanation might be that the line on the weather bureau chart above the one for Fall's beginning says 2:33 a. m. Sunday, but a host of former military men know the answer to that one "Xo excuse, sir.' In the Gazette news room, an office punster had another answer "Just shows that not even the Gazette Is in-FaII-ible.w So back to the weather. It's more of the same in Reno, with high cloudiness and a very small chance for an afternoon shower the weather man says. Temperature, which went to 89 Sunday dropped to 57 this morning.
