The hearings were initiated after the FBI testified in a federal court that it eavesdropped on conversations at Las Vegas hotel casinos to find out if unreported winnings were being shipped into the underworld. CASINO officials have said that the internal controls are too strict to permit skimming. The commission is also looking into charges that hoodlums have hidden interests in Las Vegas Strip casinos. Keefer said "no conclusion" has been reached whether this is true. They married a week after meeting and playing man and wife in the film "Robbery Under Arms."

Cellular therapy -- the implantation of vital embryonic matter from the fetus of a sheep, calf. or dog into the human system --is already performing wonders, they say. And often cellular therapy is reported equally miraculous in treating problems of children and those young in years.
