SO RENO EVENING GAZETTE August 9, 1956 3Q00 Stockholders Seek Stardust Reorganization LAS VEGAS A plea of nearly 300 stockholders to back reorganization efforts of their partially completed Stardust Hotel was voiced today by B. J. Silver, former vice president of the financially ill corporation. Silver declared that without immediate reorganization the huge investment would be a loss to the stockholders and that Louis Stralla, Stardust president and brother of the late Tony Cor-nero Stralla, is "completely incapable" of successfully operating the bogged down luxury hotel on the famed Las Vegas strip. Silver, chairman of the reorganizing "stockholders protective committee", said his group wants Stralla out of the company. He said that Stralla has "left no doubt of his inability to perform after one year of nothing but a lot of conversation." Suit Settled In Crash Death The $40,000 law suit filed In Washoe county district court by Mr. and Mrs. Albert Alegre as a result of their son's death has been settled out of court. Albert M. Alegre, the son, died after his sports car overturned Sept. 12, 1935. Mr. and Mrs. Alegre, represented by Attorney Gordon W. Thompson, claimed George M. Hale was responsible because he had suddenly turned his car left to enter a driveway as the Alegre car was about to pass. Hale, through his attorney. George Vargas, claimed that Alegre's own negligence was re sponsible for the death. Vargas had demanded a jury trial, but the suit was dismissed on agreement of the two attor neys. The dismissal was approved by Washoe county district Judge A. J. Maestretti. Silver said the hotel construction capital has been so badly depleted that the 1500 room resort, largest in the state, cannot be completed. He said also that unless steps are taken many stockholders will lose heavily in the venture. Presently the corporation is in the hands of Paul D. McDermott of Las Vegas, a former member of the Nevada Tax Commission. McDermott was appointed receiver last month under a federal bankruptcy law, by Federal Judge John R. Ross of Carson. Stralla has sought a revision of the judge's order so that the hotel can be returned to his control. Silver, however, maintains that. keeping the hotel under the "Chapter X" statute will give the stockholders protective committee time to get reorganization plans "rolling." It is estimated that about $1,-200,000 is needed to complete the hotel with another two million to pay off creditors. Carson Buys Street Signs CARSON City trustees this week authorized the purchase of name signs for two more Carson streets and discussed weed clearing from vacant lots and right of ways. The board authorized City Clerk Geraldine Lamb to purchase signs for Division street and Fall street north of Musser street' out of money from the traffic fund. Fire Chief Stan Peyton will be asked to make a comprehensive report on vacant lots and right of ways covered by weeds and the fire hazard it presents. He also will be asked to ask Warden A. E. Bernard about the use of state prisoners in cleaning up the weeds for the city. SOLE CANDIDATE FOR CONSTABLE IS RULED OUT GOLDFIELD, Nev., Aug. 9. It appears this central Nevada town Is going to have to get along without a constable for a while longer. There hasn't been a constable here for about 10 years because of the low pay, but service station operator Robert Luce recently filed. With no opposition, he was assured election. But Atty. Gen. Harvey Dickerson held yesterday that since Luce filed as a non-partisan, he cannot appear on the ballot. The law requires candidates to express their political affiliation for all but school and judicial posts, said Dickerson.
