(Ufk MALCOLM EPJ J A K E TAHOE -- When I passed through the south Tahoe area last summer and saw it under construction, it seemed ludicrous to ire that somebody would put up a h i g h - r i s e hotel in high mountain country w i t h a million acres available for binding site. - But today when I looked out of my bedroom window across the town and the taU trees at the shimmering blue lake and the snow-clothed S i e r r a heights beyond, it wasn't ludicrous at alL The 11-story Harvey's W a g o n Wheel hotel w a s a great idea. ; It's a great idea because this region is one of the world's finest for viewing. And this hotel, because it goes way up in the little town, affords superb views from every window. HELD a "press pre. view" here today and got t h e hotel operation under way. The place was developed by Harvey Gross and his w i f e , Llewellyn, who started out here in the early .'forties with a small roadside tavern, expanded it to a large casino and restaurant, '.and went on to the high hotel idea when the south .Tahoe region blossomed out a few years ago with seams_bursting activity. - ; The hotel has some features peculiar to the activ- .ities of the area which comb i n e s outstanding natural beauty and outdoor recreation opportunity with that great attraction for Californians -- Nevada-type gaming. . The lobby is a s m a l l ground-floor r o o m in the rear, entered from the parking lot and bus unloading area. The front, where one might expect a hotel lobby to be, is an extended area of the Wagon Wheel Casino. reached from the parking area by escalator. It's always easy to get into Nevada's gambling establishments. ; ANOTHER feature that I . must mention: The Polynesian room which occupies the glass-walled top story of the building. " Now a Polynesian room In a wild west setting might not make sense to a lot of people, but in Nevada, nobody ever worries a b o u t things like that. There's currently an avid interest in Polynesian decor, foods and 'dn£k, and so, why not a Polynesian room? · This one reflects g r e a t taste in every appointment, and of course, there's that view from every table. At present, there are no casino activities of any kind in this top floor area. CLERK WOUNDS BANDIT A1Y COMPANION, Ted , Bowman, L.B. manufacturer, and I had great hick on our quick visit to this high Sierra region. ; - W* were preceded by a uig s n j w f a l L Riding cp Highway 50 by bus from Sacramento, ! dozed for a little while. When I awoke. we w e r e moving between trees heavily laden with the white stuff. In higher areas, the snow w a s more than two feet deep, and we met several snowplows along the highway. This should be a g o o d water year for the valleys below. " HEN ! SPOKE of hick, I meant weather hick. of course, and not the kpd you yearn for at the gaming tables. Maybe it was just as wen we had a lot of other things to do. Bowman, for instance, got into the plastic-enclosed cockpit of a helicopter and nude a sky tour of the area, observing honireds of skiers is the b?fk country. .

When captured ·" later Saturday night. Longinetti told deputies that he and h 11 brother-in-law had "cruised around for an hour or so looking for an easy store to knock over" and had picked the Hawaiian Gardens market. The "easy store" got increasingly difficult when first Ernest Yeutter Jr, 34. of 164« S. Card Ave, Norwalk, owner, then his 14- year-old son Jimmy and his wife. Joyce, 31 told the hold-up men thit all the money was gone from the store. · · · · . "WE HAD just taken the night's receipts to the office upstairs," Yeutter told officers later, "and George (Jolly) was up tVre helping count cp the total" Angered by the apparent refusal to reveal the whereabouts of the money, Van Winkle grabbed Yeutter and stuck a gun into his stomach and demanded. "If you don't come across with some money, you're gonna die!" Yeutter said he tamed swiftly and g r a b b e d the bandit's gun and tried to take it away from him. In the struggle.
