Reno Evening Gazette Friday, April 19, 1974 23 Large stock transfer to former Caesars Palace owners approved CARSON CITY (AP) - The Nevada Gaming Commission has approved plans by Caesars World, Inc. to turn over one million shares of stock to former owners of Caesars Palace Hotel-Casino in Las Vegas. The proposal approved Thursday amounts to an eventual $16- million payment representing the last portion of a $58 million sale price agreed to in 1969.

Still pending in the case is a Securities and Exchange japes reprimanded by gaming commission CARSON CITY (AP) -Reno casino owner Charles Mapes Jr. has been reprimanded by the Nevada Gaming Commission for allegedly cursing at and abusing a state Gaming Control Board agent in November 1973. But the commission backed off Thursday from slapping Mapes with a fine requested by the control board despite efforts by commission member Alir Haycock to impose one of $1,000. Instead, commissioners voted with Haycock casting the lone "no" vote to censure Mapes, require him to apologize in writing to board agent Timothy Ford, and pay costs incurred in probing the alleged incident. Control board chairman Phil Hannifin made the tongue-in-cheek suggestion that Mapes be required to pay for a frame to hold the letter of apology he has to send Ford. Ford had said Mapes swore at him and tried to lead him to a chair because he was watching a card game and was scaring off players. Mapes had said he tried to get Ford to sit down because the agent was watching a blackjack game in "a most stern manner" and he wanted him to move because customers were talking about the agent.
