BULLDOG 22 The Arizona Republic Phoenix, Wed., Aug. 28, 1968 Gambler Dies When Bomb Wrecks Car ZEPHYR COVE, Nev. (DPI) — Richard Chartrand, a major Lake Tahoe gambler, was killed yesterday when a bomb demolished his car as he prepared to drive to his office. The blast occurred at his swank home in the Skyland area, directly across the street from the home of Frank Johnson, chairman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, which is the investigative arm of Nevada's gambling control system. CHARTRAND'S ' shattered and torn body still had not been removed from the wrecked 1968 Cadillac two hours later. The force of the blast blew a hole in the pavement. Johnson was in bed recovering from a cold when he heard the explosion. He said the force of the blast tore off a curtain in his bedroom. "I went out immediately. The car was smoking and Chartrand was lying in the front seat," he said. JOHNSON said he knew of no troubles Chartrand may have had with anybody in the gambling business recently. There was a stockholders' dispute five years ago involving control of Barney's Club at nearby Stateline on the south shore of Lake Tahoe, but Chartrand eventually gained a majority interest. He also acquired controlling interest in the South Tahoe Nugget at Stateline. Ted Stokes, acting district attorney of Douglas County, took over the investigation. Dist. Atty. John Chrislaw is attending the Democratic National Convnetion. "I imagine Chartrand was killed instantly," Stokes said. HE SAID he did not know the type of bomb that was used. "We'll have a better picture later tonight but we really don't know much to start with on this case," he said. He said the F.BI was called in, as well as a demolition squad from Reno. Chartrand, 42, became a Nevada gambling licensee after being in business in Fresno, Calif., until recent years. Stokes said the bomb apparently had been placed beneath the floorboards of the automobile. The front end of the car was reduced to twisted metal. The windows were blown out and Chartrand was pinned in the wreckage. By CHARLES H. GOREN North and South reached the only game contract that had a chance. A spade lead administers a sound tfounc- ing to three no trump, fof declarer must surrender the lead in either hearts or diamonds in order to develop nine tricks. Five clubs is defeated ba- cause the diamond finesse Gorett fails. South opened the bidding with one club and West made a peremptive jump overcall to two spades. North had something in reserve for his free raise to three clubs; however, a more drastic call would automatically catapult the partnership into game. SOUTH'S rebid of three hearts was well chosen. He was reluctant to gamble out three no trump with but a single stopper in spades and, besides, he did not want to Neither deals. vulnerable South NOJRTK > J'JO S WJESf fiASt OK2 443 SOUTH AA2 0976* 4985 The bidding: South \1M North 14 2 -A 34 3 <?

Although North's raise of a secondary sitit with only three trumps is a trifle unorthodox, he felt tliat 10 tricks might be easier to take than 11. He was right, West opened the king of spades and South played the ace. A heart was led to dummy's ten and East ducked. The jack of hearts was continued and East held off once more, hoping that declarer would play a third round. SOUTH WISELY decided to abandon hearts temporarily, in order to work in a side suit. The queen of diamonds was led for a finesse and West was in with the king. He cashed a high spade and then shifted back to a diamond. Declarer now drove out the ace of trumps and was highly gratified to observe that the suit divided evenly. This left him with the only remaining trump, which he used to ruff the spade return and then claimed the rest of the tricks. Observe that if South leads a third round of trumps before he starts the diaminds, the defense will be able to force out declarer's last heart by playing a third round of spades. Now when West gets in with the king of diamonds, he can cash at least one spade trick and send South down to defeat. Anniversary Celebrated By Shaws Rights Group Protests Shaw Mrs. Shaw ' The Rev. and-Mrs. Herbert M. Shaw, 1028 N. 27th Ave., recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. The event was observed with a gathering at the Weese Memorial Building on the campus of Treasure Valley Community College, Ontario, Ore.

The Arizona Welfare Rights Organization has announced it will .protest to the State Welfare Board its tentatively adopted rule that could deprive wdfare mothers of their children, if they refuse to participate in a work plan. The organization, at its board Of directors meeting in Tucson last Saturday, also criticized as "little more than custodial care" a state practice of placing children of working welfare mothers in homes; of other welfare recipients for a fee of $30 a month. Mrs. Ruth Woptten, board chairman, said the federal government recommends a Head", Start-type day-care program for such children. She said the private agency board also declared the state board's plan to cut back on emergency relief payments is "callous and inhumane." Mrs. Wootten said the 75 members of the Welfare Rights Organization attending the Tucson meeting objected to the "attitude of the State Welfare Board, both in conduct of their public meetings and in the implementation of harsh and punitive programs." ,$250,000 in Jewels Missing From Plane BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) More than $250,000 worth of diamonds were reported missing yesterday from a British plane en route from London to Hong Kong.

The plane's previous stop was ^Frankfurt, Germany. Steak Not Right,Even as Weapon; Judge Talks To Lawyers •TUCSON — Government niust learn to communicate wjjh the nation's young people, Arizona Supreme Court Justice Charles Bernstein told a group of young Tucson lawyers here yesterday. '"It must do more than hear their problems," he said, "it mpst feel them. It must do more than lend its ear, it must lend its heart." •. ; - f |The judge' cited youth's growing alienation from U.S. political and social institutions as one of the most alq'rming trends of recent years. Yet if young people want improvement, Bernstein added, they must become problem solvers, not problem creators. 'Bernstein, an Arizona Supreme Court judge for the past 10 years, seeks renomi- najion for his third term in the Sept. 10 Democratic primary election. CHICAGO (UPI) - Gourmet Morton J. Franklin, 53, complained that the steak he was served at 1'Epuisette Restaurant on Chicago's Near North Side was too rare. Waiter Miguel Perez, 37, re- /' turned the steak to the kitchen. for more cooking. ' Then Franklin complained;: that the steak was overdone.; Perez said he'd try again with- another steak. When Perez returned for the. third time, Franklin again complained that the^ steak wasn't properly prepared. Perez slammed the steak into Franklin's face and raced to the kitchen with Franklin in pursuit, police reported. Perez seized a butcher knife but was disarmed by other waiters, police said. Franklyn received hospital treatment for an eye injury but declined to press charges, police said. L'Epuisette decided that Franklin's steaks were on the house.
