Amarillo Slim Taking Part In Big Game In Las Vegas LAS VEGAS. Amarillo Slim, Nev. Pug. TAKING A PEEK . . . Amarillo Slim, whose parents live in Washington County, in the high-stakes poker game in Las Vegas Nixon Sends Economic Message To Congress By EDMOND Le BRETON Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Nixon today sends an economic State of the Union report to a Congress whose dominant Democrats are hammering away at his spending policies. In a .preliminary radio speech Wednesday. Nixon predicted food prices will continue to ride for several months .but should decline later in the year as his administration's efforts to increase food supplies "bring relief to Hie' housewife without damaging the prosperity of our : farmers." He also defended his budget ' cuts, saying curbing Federal · spending "will do more t h a n anything else to protect your family budget." And he said it is tolally , wrong to contend that wage- price controls have been abandoned. · "We still have firm controls.' 1 he said. "We are still enforcing ; them firmly." House Democratic Leader Thomas P. O'Neill of Mas . sachusetts said administration arm policies "point to even more expensive groceries in the "uture." "The withdrawal of price 'Ports and the 'freedom font' policies of this adminis- .ration will mean economic death for thousands of farms," 3'Neill said. "In the long run, hat will mean fewer producers and higher food prices." sup] plai Ann-Morgrer Sues SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) -- Singer Ann-Margret is seeking $5 Court million in suit she a Superior filed here a g a i n s t t h e Sahara-Tahoe Corp.. accusing the company of negligence that led : to a 25-foot fall in which she broke her left arm, jaw and five facial bones. In the suit filed Wednesday, she said the hotel and its subsidiary organizations built and operated the platform on which she was to descend to the stage in her act. She charged that the p l a t f o r m w a s negligently allowed to tilt, causing her fal last September. FRANTIC EFFORT House Speaker Carl Albert .ermed Nixon's speech " j u s t another frantic effort to re- .rieve the administration's economic policy after the instabilities of his first four years n office, 11 Albert said he is worried lhat efforts lo apply brakes to the economy could lead to another recession and added, "Even if the economy does improve as much as the President says it will. I am still very much concerned about the burden the President's economic program places upon the common man and the poor." Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana said, "T h e President made a mistake in'cutting off wage and price controls when everything is going well." Rep. Henry S. Reuss, D-Wis. said the administration shares responsibility for increase ir meat prices because it declinec for six months to allow cattle grazing on l!0 million acres sei aside under the farm-price-sup port program. and The Sailor--who are among the world's best poker players--have plopped down a minimum of $10.000 each to buy into a high-stakes game that could be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars to the winner. Egghead, Goodie and .The Mysterious Doctor waited in the wings for a chance to play. The game started Wednesday with 10 players and $130,000 in $100 and $25 chips on a green felt table at the Golden Nugget Casino in the downtown "glitter gulch." The no-limit "hold-em" game a variety of seven-card stud, is the biggest ever sponsored by a casino, said Bill Boyd, Nugget casino executive who is playing with his own money. "We're all friends but when you sit down the friendsnip ceases." drawled Thomas Autin "Amarillo Slim" Preston before the game. "We try to trap a guy and skim him. I want some hide. I want to skin somebody." Preston, sporting a gray Stetson, a red suit with black pinstripes he said he won in a floating crap game in Albuquerque and tan and red cowboy boots, said he expects the table stakes to reach $300,000 and the game to last more than one -day. Individual pots should go as high as $70,000 he said. PART OF LURE Part of the lure of the game is the opportunity to beat Preston, a professional gambler who won the so-called "world series of poker" here last May in a playoff against Walter Clyde "Pug" Pearson of Las Vegas. "They'd rather beat me out of $40 than somebody else out if $2,000," Slim said. "I'd give $10,000 just to beat him." said W. H. "Egghead" 3 erry of Odessa. Tex., who is vailing for a chance to play. "At those prices I'll even tell everybody you did it," Slim responded. '' Unlike in some marathon ;ames, players are allowed to (AP) -- buy more chips if they run low Toughie Six gamblers are ready to replace, any players who drop out. In hold em, players are dealt two cards down and five common cards are put face up in the center of the table. The best five-card hand wins. Most of the players are Tex ans who contest each other regularly but a few are les well known by the veteran gamblers. "I look for them to suffer ex treme misfortune," Slim sal wryly. Preston, from Amarillo, Tex collected a $31,000 bet last No yember from seven poker-play ing cronies who said h couldn't float down the Middl Fork of the Salmon River i Idaho. His parents live in Wash ington County.
