IR RENO EVENING GAZETTE August 4, 1930 t Labor Division Leader Named In Chest Drive Dwight Andersen, business manager of the Central Trades Union, and a member of the board of directors of the Community Chest has been appointed chairman of the labor division of the chest's 1956 campaign. Andersen's appointment was madr public today in an announcement by Jordan J. Crouch, general campaign chairman. Andersen, long active in vet erans and labor affairs, is serving his first term as a board member of the Chest and is also starting his first experience in a top-level campaign post. He will be re sponsible for soliciting "treas ury gifts" from labor locals in the area and also for fostering interest in the Community Chest among union members. The organization of the labor division differs slightly from other Community Chest divisions in that there is usually no team captain set up. Rather Andersen is working to organize a unit composed of" solicitors who will contact the various locals for official action on making dona tions to the chest. ' "The working man is excep tionally cognizant of the service provided by the 12 agencies of Community Chest," he said m accenting the post, and I am confident that organized labor will shoulder its share of the burden of maintaining these serv ices to the Reno-Sparks area. It is for this reason that I am happy to accept the task of con tacting our various locals and approaching them with the problem faced by Community Chest. I can promise they will not be found wanting. Young Schedules Visits in State Rep. Cliff Young is scheduled to visit Clark county August 9, 10, and 11, his office announced today.

The statement was filed by Louis C. Stralla, brother of the late gambler-promoter Tony Cor-nero Stralla, in answer to a petition by four creditors seeking reorganization of the hotel under the federal bankruptcy act. The creditors claimed the corporation's construction capital has been depleted to the poinl where the 1,000-robm hotel biggest on the Las Vegas Strip cannot be completed. In addition, they listed more than $2,000,000 creditors suits pending against the hotel in Las Vegas courts. Stralla replied to the petition with the assertion that the corporation needs $1,200,000 to complete construction and that it can obtain the money through normal channels. In addition, three of the four creditors seeking reorganization actually have no claims, he said, because they agreed to accept stock instead of cash for their services and the hotel is able to issue the stock. Thus, he argued, the federal court has no jurisdic tion because the law requires creditors filing such a petition to have debts totaling $5,000 or more. Driver Sued By Pedestrian Claiming he was hit by a recklessly driven automobile, Glen D. Helvern is suing Jack D. Vekander, driver of the car, for $22,423. Helvern, represented by Attorney Samuel. B. Francovich, claims he was walking carefully across California avenue, near South Virginia street when the car hit him Nov. 9, 1955. He is asking $1188 to compensate for loss of wages while he was disabled for nine weeks, $135 to pay medical expenses, $1100 for care necessitated by the injuries. $10,000 in general damages and another $10,000 in punitive damages.
