Floor Show At Riverside To End Soon Wednesday evening Virginia O'Brien and the 4 Stags, Profes sor Backwards, and Les Marcellis close their current engagement at Mert Wertheimer's R i v e r.s i d e theater restaurant. The show has been a crowd pleaser and "Miss O'Brien, break ing in her new nitery act, has won many friends. The act is differ ent from the usual act of its kind because Miss O'Brien's singing style is peculiar to her, and the dead pan comedienne has her own way of putting over a song. The 4 Stags prove able assistants, and the act is whipped into excellent shape now. Professor Backwards, despite a cold, delivers his monologue to the amusement of the audience and then climaxes his act with his upside down, backward writing which not only amuses but amazes. Les Marcellis are in top form. Old Reno favorites, their current performance tops anything they have done on the local stage. The hard working Riverside Starlets and Bill Clifford and his orchestra round out an excellent show. Next Thursday will mark the world premier of the Harry Rich- man Revue, an elaborately costumed, carefully staged nightclub spectacular which is something new for the Pyramid Lake rancher, once known as "Mr. Broadway."

His major occupation is song-writing and he has written 35. So far, only one of his western ballads has been published. 'There's Gonna Be a Round-up Bye and Bye" appeared recently in a collection of songs entitled "Ramblin' Jimmie Dolan's Song Corral." The song, his first one, was written in 1932. In 1952, he sang it on the radio on the Bob Hawk show and it was published in 1954. With one success under his belt, Urben is determined to keep on composing and playing his guitar by ear.

New Hotel At Vegas Faces Suit LAS VEGAS A move to throw the still uncompleted Stardust Hotel into receivership was made here Thursday as of-j ficers and directors of the corporation were sued by a stockholder who claims two million dollars in corporation funds were dissipated. In filing the suit, Edward Rus-nick, who has a. $15,500 piece of the huge 1000 room hotel, said it is a class action being brought on behalf of all other affected stockholders. Rusnick alleges through his attorney, Louis Wiener, that at the time he purchased his stock, he was told by Anthony Cornero Stralla, now deceased, that four and one half million dollars would complete construction of the hotel. Now, Rusnick alleges, Stardust directors and officers have made a deal to borrow an additional two million dollars from Frank Hofues. He claims the action is aealnst the best interests of the stockholders and that the terms! are "oppresive and inequitable." The case was filed in the court of District Judge A. S. Henderson who has not yet set a date for the hearing. Defendants in the action include B. W. Silver, hotel vice president and assistant treasurer, Jac De Luca, first vice president, J. W. Marks, Seymour Zimmerman, William E. Peluso, James Payne Bradley and D. J. Rotondo, all hotel directors.

'The Tender Trap" is a story about love from the viewpoint of debonair New York actors' agent and bachelor Charlie Reader (Sinatra) who has a flock of career girls breaking their necks to catch him.

All this is changed when Julie Gillis (Debbie Reynolds) arrives on the scene as she has a marriage plan in mind. Charlie finds his Utopian world turned upside-down by Julie and Joe comes to the realization that the domestic problems of the wall-to-wall carpeting and braces for the children's teeth are more important than illusory Manhattan romances.
