Two New York men lose bid to set up book Reno Evening Gazette Friday, Dec. 18, 1877-41, CARSON CITY (AP) Two New York men have lost by one vote in seeking Nevada uamtng commission approval to run the Santa Anita Turf and Sports Book in Las Vegas. All but one of the five commissioners were apparently convinced Thursday that associations George Grant and Daniel Kramer had with illegal bookmakers in New York were not serious enough to block them from being licensed in Nevada. But the state Gaming Control Board, the investigatory and enforcement arm of the commission, had recommended denial of the (iroposal, and under Nevada aw only a unanimous commission vote could overcome that. Commissioner George Swarts cast the lone "no" vote which killed the plan. Swarts said he was concerned because Grant had a long-standing social relationship with Sol Margolies, identified as an illegal bookmaker in the New York area. And Swarts said he was also concerned because Kramer had briefly worked In an illegal bookmaking operation while trying to get UUtUWVL Shannon Bybee, lawyer for Kramer and Grant, argued mat Grant was "his own man" and was not a "front" for Margolies. And he said Kramer showed good character in providing tormation to the FBI which helped stop some iUegjal bookmaking in New The two men wanted to buy the Santa Anita from current owner Sammy Cohen. In other action the commission called for more investigation by the Control Board of a plan by a Las Vegas woman to run IS slot machines at a gift shop. The board recommended denial previously because of her husband's tax evasion and bankruptcy record. Commission Chairman Harry Reid said he was inerested in getting more information on the bankruptcy record of Norbert Jansen, whose wife Avis Pearl wants the slots at her Holiday Gifts South. The plan also called for her husband to be found suitable as a landlord. Jansen was convicted in 1968 for evading $31,839 In taxes. He was involved In a bankruptcy proceeding involving the old El well hotel-casino in downtown Las Vegas in 1967. The commission also approved Colette Jane Miller as a suitable estate beneficiary at Slots-A-Fun in us vegas, and approved Donald Dennis as shift manager at the Palace Club in Reno. Mike Gaughan was allowed to expand a parlay card operation at the Royal Inn in Las Vegas, so he can take bets on football games. And Paul Perry was exempted from an earlier licensing condition at bis Joker dub in North Las Vegas that called for a $10,000 bond to insure financial stability. The commission removed a similar condition from the license of Donald Gilfillan, who runs the Christmas Tree Casino on the Mount Rose Highway near Reno. Sy Redd was approved to hold an 80 per cent interest in CC Woodworks, a Reno slot manufacturer and distributor; and Frank and Aileen Rizzo were approved to hold a 20 per cent interest in the Plantation Casino in Sparks. David Daniel was approved as shift manager at the Maxim hotel-casino in Las Vegas; Jack Bullock as shift manager at the Marina in Las Vegas; and Robert Caudle as shift manger at the Fallon Nugget. Frank and Gloria Carrigan were approved to hold an 18 per cent interest in Westronics in Las Vegas; and Jessica Ledbetter was approved as executive assistant and Dominic Tanzl as food and beverage manager at Harvey's, Stateline. Prime Rib $3.99 lb flOiafc a fcjiisS trcfrticxlb price is a Staler tiz:.t Caesars plan hearing slated CARSON CITY (AP) - The Nevada Gaming Commission decided Thursday to schedule a special meeting Monday in Las Vegas to review a proposal by Caesars World Inc. to make a $15 million public offering. The panel voted 4-1 for the special session, after Caesars legal counsel Richard Sheehan, sweat on his brow, said the firm stood to lose $25 million in new investment money unless the issue was approved next week. Sheehan didn't elaborate on why there was a possible $25 million loss in investment money, when the offering was only supposed to raise $15 million. But he said the market for such offerings would not be as good in January as it is now. Without approval next week, Sheehan said the offering would be delayed until mid-January. The commission didn't guarantee the issue will be okayed, but the scheduling of a special session at least provides a posibility that Caesars could still go ahead with its offering before the end of the year. The offering is designed to provide $9 million for Caesars Palace hotel-casino in Las Vegas, and about $6 million for a future Atlantic City, N. J., club. Commission Chairman Harry Reid voted against the special meeting. He said the commission may be "buying a pack of trouble" if it rushes its review of the offering. But Commission member George Swarts said that if the offering is in order, "it's good for the state of Nevada for us to do it. " The state Gaming Control Board, investigative arm of the commission, had recommended against approval of the offering because no comment letter had been filed yet by the federal Securities and Exchange Commission. Sheehan said that as he argued, a copy of the comment letter was being rushed to the commission. Control Board Chairman Roger Trounday said review of the comment letter would not be done in haphazard fashion, and if all board questions had not been answered by Monday, the recommendation against the offering would stand. . That means the commission would have to vote unanimously to overcome the recommenadation for denial, and Reid said he would vote against the plan unless Control Board staffers were satisfied with it.
