"Nope," he said with assurance, "Nobody in Vegas takes money on auto racing." And before this particular race was over, it was easy to see why.

In fact, they like the idea of not being listed. What bothers Chairman MaO and his chums is that Taiwan, listed under the Heading of The Republic of China, rates five pages. Worse yet, Hong Kong, which has been the target of an especially nasty Chinese campaign of harassment of late, has 14 pages of listings on display, complete with such capitalistic companies as the Chase Man- hattefl Bank, American Bit' press, General Electric and Corning Glass. Veteran China watchers, who also answer to the titles of usually reliable and generally informed sources, feel that since the Reds doii't want to do much about Hong Kong (it's A British Crown Colony and, after all, the British are the kind Of people you like to have living, in the neighborhood), the Taiwan listing li a bit tougher to take. tn an official protest to the Reuben H.
