State to probe Circus Circus casino sales program on 4 jam site' Reno Evening Gazette Friday, August 23, 197423 CAKSIJN CITY (AT A probe into a Circus Circus casino sales program being run on the site of outlawed "jam auctions" has been authorized by state gaming officials. The Nevada Gaming Com-, mission also advised its investigative arm, thetate Gaming Control Board, at a panel meeting Thursday to probe into a lease agreement involving the club's gift shop and former operator, Anthony Spilotro. Commissioner Clari Haycock sought the "jam auction" probe by the board after questioning whether a commisssion policy against such events is being violated by a new "demonstration sales" program. f Circus Circus Officials have said the new system marks a compromise with the "jam auction" operators. The commission found the auctions to be unsuitable for casinos last May. The auctions derived their name from techniques of luring customers with give-aways and then starting bidding in which prices have already been set. A Commission spokesman said the name connotes merchandise "beine iammed down customers' throats." Phil Hannifin, chairman of the state Gaming Control Board, said the Circus, Circus gift shop probe was needed because of information that a lease agreement "may have been drawn in a fashion that would subvert" demands of gaming officials. The commission had required the lease deal to remove Spilotro, of Chicago, from the operation because of his criminal record. In other action the commission approved John Ligouri's proposal to run the Skyline Kesturant and Casino in Henderson and Walter Rabitaille's plan to direct casino operations for Las Vegas, Reno and Stateline divisions of Consolidated Casinos Corp. Dorothy Sill was approved as shift manager at the Bonanza Square Inn in Reno and TJM Leasing Corp., headed by Thomas Carroll of Reno, was approved as a slot machine distributor and manufacturer. Chester Conrad was approved as owner and operator of the North Shore Club at Crystal Bay and Marcos Berkman was ao- proved as a junket representative at Harrahs Club in Reno. Licenses for slot machines at nine Las Vegas area locations and four Reno sites were approved. Las Vegas area locations include two 7-11 stores, Las Vegas Troubadour, Winners Circle, Express Lane Food Store, Ep-pie's Restaurant, Lucky Bar, Andy's Place and Pepper Mint Club. Reno sites include Virginia Street Lounge, Sierra Inn, Vagabond Motor Hotel and Candle Light Room. Also approved were Ascona Lounge in Carson City; Cave Inn in Glenbrook; Overland Bar in Fallon; Joe's Stateline Club in Lathrop Wells, and Jolly Sixpence in Incline Village. Also approved was sale of an 80 per cent interest in the Gay 90s in Las Vegas from Marie Floyd to Hugh Campbell, and sale of a 26 per cent interest in Silver Slots, Inc., Of Las Vegas, from Newel Crowley and Leonard Delk to Phillip Mercaldi.

But the panel decided Thursday to allow a fourth junket operator to continue business even though he allegedly failed to collect $137,000 in markers owed to casinos by gamblers he brought into the state. ..The commission ruled against Stephen Neves, an associate of Wilford Pulawa whose income tax and conspiracy trial ended in acquittal last February. Neves didn't show up for the meeting. Commissioners also ruled against Ernest Pacarro and David Mizuno but said both men could reapply in six months if employed by a Nevada casino. Having a casino organization behind them would help junket representatives who might face extortion attempts. The casinos would also be responsible for actions of their junket organizers, a commission spokesman noted. The commissioners ruled favorably on Katsumi Kazama after his lawyer said Kazama backed the $137,000 in overdue markers with his own collateral. Mizuno's lawyer, Richard Horton, argued that since his client testified against Pulawa in the tax and conspiracy case he should be praised instead of Watergate link blocks Nevada security permit blocked from running junkets. Pacarro found support from Commissioner Walter Cox, who said a junket organizer "tells a gangster to go jump in the lake, and he may be shot tomorrow. That's a virtue and virtue should be rewarded." Pacarro testified he paid more than $20,000 in protection money to Pulawa, then refused any more and later testified against Pulawa in the tax case.

Hunt testified that the pair met a second time in Los Angeles with another Watergate figure, Gordon Liddy, to discuss the break-in, which never occurred. Winte said he met once with Hunt and after advising his superiors was told to drop the matter altogether. Commissioner Frank Schreck Jr. said Winte had an impeccable record as an FBI agent, Air Force security officer and Hughes security officer "but there are serious allegations." He noted Hunt has refused to talk to gaming investigators until after his upcoming trial on charges stemming from the Watergate scandal. Raggio message State Sen.
