Imt I IK*, tjtl. UM. Ajrt I H1 INOEPENDENT-?*gtA-3i 6/ too WELLS : 911 Right-handed Slot Machines :· SOUTH SHORE, LAKE TAHOE--An ex-butch*r, name o* Han-ey JGross, opened a 200-room, 8^/4 -million-dollar hotel here over the weekend. It's a neat joint, all right, but the thing that really sets if off from other 11-story resort hotels is its 91! slot machines. Harvey claims that's the biggest battery of slot machines ever collected in one place ia the history of the world. I wouldn't know about that, but the thing that impressed me after a tour of the casino is that in the whole 911 there is not one single left-handed slot machine. They are all right-handed. I haven't told Harvey about this until now. He's had enough to worry TV for Quid Hours action away from Harrah's across the street, which until now has usually had the best entertainment. Green took one look at the 11-story. 8 Vi -million-dollar pleasure dome, and exclaimed: "You mean a butcher built this? Boy, I wanna see his thumb." about what with getting the carpenters and painters through and out of the place before the party he scheduled to open the place started. Howsoever, it does seem to me that among 911 slot machines you could have --say--100 that would be left-handed. I toured the slots seeking out some culturally-deprived lefties to interview about this WELLS obvious discrimination. I couldn't find any. Either the southpaws an stick to blackjack, keno, ro-ilette and other two-handed games, or they pass thcm- . selves off amongst the slots as right- handers. ' Of course, it's awfully hard to get a" riot-slugger to open up for an interviewer. Asking a machine player whether he's right or left handed brings these responses: 1. "Beat it;" or, 2.

Something called "western food, Polynesian style," fcr instance, is served in the 11 th-floor observation-type cocktail lounge called ' Top of the Wheel, where the ladies' powder roora features a "sun deck lanai complete with hammocks under grass shack decor." . 4 And the suites feature "color television for the quiet hours.*" Quiet hours. Ia Nevada that's what a gambler calls those moments ia which he's debating whether to commit suicide or to try to bounce another check. Expert Desccralors Harvey's new hotel--which is the outgrowth of a saloon with six slot machines and a right-handed gas pump opened in 1946--was not built without a lot of local controversy. Some people argued that high-rise hotels would ruin Lake Tahoe's natural beauties. It was inevitable that high · rise buildings should go up there. For one thing, the traditional one and two-story buildings there just are not big enough to carry the multitude of ever-growing signs announcing "Casino," "Big Jackpots," "Keno." "Slots," and a hundred other come-oos that line the road from the South Tahoe airport. Talk about desecrating n a t u r a l beauties--there is no more expert desecrator than a sign painter.

Despite the, confession, which CDC leaders said had been under study for months, an integrated picket line was in force at Bakersfield's plush new Chic Auditorium for Saturday and Sunday sessions of the convention. ABOUT 6,000 delegates, alternates and visitors were here representing the 70,000- member unofficial volunteer organization. Undercurrent of the operation here was the clear but unacknowledged hostility between backers of re-elected President Tom Carvey and the CDC establishment on one side and friends of Unruh, official party leaders and office holders often cnsympa the tic to CDC ideological nights.
