Pago 12, Sec. 2, CAPITAL JOURNAL, Salem, Oregon, Saturday, Oct. 19, 1968 Circus-Circus Casino Opens With Acts Above Gamblers " LAS VEGAS, Nev. (UPI)-Circus-Circus. the newest addition to the glittering Las Vegas "Strip" opened Friday night as thousands of first-nighters jammed into the big top. The $15 million cement structure shaped lik a giant pink and white circus tent, is unique to the five-mile row of gambling resorts on the strip. (Jircus-Uircus has no room accommodations or major showrooms for top name per formers. Instead, high wire and aerial acts perform above the heads of gamblers as they play blackjack, roulette or craps.? Histor ically, casinos have been built in such a way that nothing dis- Abby Owners May Want the Cat si DEAR ABBY: Some weeks ago a neighbor boy brought me a pathetic looking kitten and begged me to take it as his mother wouldn't let him keep it. He. said it had been crying at their back door for several days. Being an animal lover, I took, the kitten, even tho we already had a dog and cat. The kitten looked so sickly, I took it to the veterinarian who discovered it had worms and By Abigail Van Buren Capital Journal Columnist distemper. But he got it back to good health, instructing us to feed it a special diet in order to build it up, which we did. . Yesterday I saw an ad in the paper for a "lost kitten." I think it's this one. Both my husband and I are crazy about this cat now. If -we hadn't paid to nurse it back to health, it surely would have died. We have given it a good, affectionate home. We have no children. In the ad there is no reward offered. Under these circumstances, is it our place to phone these people who advertised for the lost cat? PERPLEXED DEAR PERPLEXED: You have built a good cast for keeping the cat, but ifs not good enough. Yes, you must telephone the people who advertised for the lost cat. They may re-' ward you for your kindness by letting you keep it, but if they want their cat back, be prepared to hand it over. DEAR ABBY: I am a 12-year-old boy with an eight-year-old brother, named Burton, who is a fink. Burton wore my Boy Scout hat and took my brand new bugle outside and blew it all day Saturday while I. was at the dentist's. When I found out about it I gave him a little tap on the arm. He fell against the fence and got a little tiny cut on his head and maybe two drops of blood came out. Burton ran in the house screaming and told our mother, and now I am grounded for a whole week. She didn't say one word to Burton about wearing my hat and blowing my bugle. Was this fair? How can I make my mother realize that when something happens it is not always my fault because I am older and should know better?; (HER words.) Thank you. 5 THE OLDER ONE ucAK OLUtK: Tell your mother what you have told me, (or show her this item) and ask for her comment. Meanwhile, as a Boy Scout you are pledged to be kind, truthful, and: obedi ent." If you are, you'll win in the end, and the "fink' may follow your example and be come a Boy Scout, too. i . . DEAR ABBY: I think my wife is an exhibitionist. She walks in front of the windows with the shades up and nothing on. When she dresses, she ' never closes her bedroom door, and we have kids all the way from 10 to 19 of both sexes who always have friends over. She has even gone down the hall and from one room to another in various stages of undress (and NO dress) when we've had houseguests. If I tell her ito put something on she says, "I don't have anything to hide." What is wrong with her? I HER HUSBAND DEAR HUSBAND: Some people have a neurotic need to "hide" what they have. Others have a neurotic need to "show" it. Your wife could belong to the latter group. j " " ' j DEAR ABBY: My husband recently hired a very; cute young secretary. Lately, he has been rushing through dinner so he can shower, shave (AGAIN), pick up his secretary and go back to the office to ("catch up." Should I be jealous? THE WIFE DEAR WIFE: Not unless you know what , he goes back to "catch up" on. j Everybody has a problem. What's yours? For a personal reply write to Abby, Box1 69700, Los Angeles, Cal., 90069 and enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope. j; tracts the high-roller not even clocks. "When people want to gamble they will gamble and not even circus acts above their heads will distract them," said Jay Sarno, the promoter and de veloper who appeared opening night dressed as a carnival barker. ; He was surrounded by live pink elephants, trained monkeys that paid off slot machine jack pots, casino dealers wearing polka-dotted clown shirts and shapely cocktail wiatresses wearing lowcut drum major costumes. The, Circus-Circus has a casino larger than a football field, which houses 19 black jack ta bles, two roulette wheels, eight crap tables and 686 slot ma chines. The slots play music, ring bells and light up when they pay off. The big top, which employes 1,000 persons, opened its doors at 6 p.m. Friday and a crowd estimated at over 10,000 continued to pour in well after midnight. . ' Police were on the scene in an attempt to unsnarl bumper to bumper traffic on the Strip." The gambling resort built In three tiers which all overlook the casino inside is billed as a resort for an members of the family. A nursery Is available for parents who wish to deposit their children. The ground floor level is devoted to gambling. But the upper two tiers over looking the casino are devoted to carnival games, such as bal loon dart throwing where the prizes are dolls and small household appliances. There is enough cement in the entire building to construct 250 homes. One way of getting from an upper tier to the casino level is a slide. Another way is a firemen's pole. However, ramps are available for the less adventurous. One act which will appear nightly is a man who leaps 60 feet from one of the top tiers into a giant wet sponge. ui " THE'y.

This deal occurred In & four-table team of four match. The final contract at each table was three notrump. At two tables North became declarer and easily made the contract when East led a spade. Declarer won in dummy with the queen, cashed the K-J of hearts and ace of j diamonds, then led & low diamond to the queen. After cashing the A-Q of hearts, he took the marked diamond finesse and thus made nine tricks. At the other two tables South became declarer after opening the bidding with a notrump By B. Jay Becker in Masters Individual Championship Play (O 1968. King Features Syndicate. Inc.) (showing 12 to 14 points). West led a diamond; Ja each case. At the first table declarer went up with dummy's Idng, cashed the K-J of hearts, and continued with a low spade. East was asleep at the switch. He followed low, permitting South to win with the queen, and declarer now had no trouble making nine tricks. At the second table, South ran into tighter defense and went down. one. Declarer played low from dummy on the diamond lead, apparently hoping West had led from J-10-x-x. When East produced tha ten, South won with the queen, returned a diamond to the king, cashed the K-J of hearts, and led a low spade from dummy. East went right up with the ace, made the killing shift to the jack of clubs, and South lost four club tricks for down one. Actually, East's spade plav at this table was not very difficult. Declarer had shown up with four heart tricks, could obviously score four diamond tricks by finessing dummy's nine, and if permitted to win a spade trick with the queen would easily make the contract. Rising with the ace of spades and shifting to the jack of clubs therefore offered the only real chance of beating the contract. East had to assume that West could win four club tricks; otherwise, there was no hope. 10-19-68 ACROSS 1. Fissure 4. S. Amer. Indian group 7. Otiose 11. Witch bird 12. Generation 13. Color 14.
