The visit from the police had been prompted by complaints from neighbors who said a man had been waving to passers-by from his doorway while clad only in a pair of white socks. The man told the officer it couldn't have been him because he had been in bed all day.

(UPI) - Perry Lieber, Landmark Hotel General Manager for Summa Corp., handed a gigantic, symbolic key to the resort to the new owners shortly after midnight Saturday, i Slot machine play stopped when Salina, Kan., attorney Louis Tickel and Zula Wolfram of Toledo, Ohio, took possession of the resort they purchased for $12.5 million from the estate of the, late Howard Hughes. Nevada officials ordered the casino of the space-needle shaped resort closed because neither of the new owners has been approved for a gaming license. Shannon Bybee, attorney for the new owners, said he plans to file a gambling application in their behalf sometime next week. Tickel said he hopes to re-open the Landmark Casino in April. The new owners continued negotiations with current Nevada gaming license holders to operate the casino pending, state approval of the license application. Procedures to obtain a new license normally require a minimum of 90 days. The Landmark's hotel, restaurant, and shops remain open. Lieber said his leadership in the Landmark had drawn to a close. He said the Landmark Hotel was "always a favorite of Howard Hughes. There is not a hotel in the state with more potential than the Landmark in Las Vegas." Lieber said the resort has had its ups and downs and "at this time we are drawing our management to a conclusion." Tickel told reporters he and his associates are "primarily business people." He expressed confidence in finding a person with "honesty and integrity" to supervise the casino operation. He said he realized the closing of the Landmark casino would affect the economy of Las Vegas. Tickel said the casino would re-open as soon as possible. He said the 300 casino employees would be re-hired on their merits. Only a few persons were in the casino when the symbolic key passed to the new owners. Employees were emptying money from the slot machines and tables. It will be stored in a vault until it is moved to other Summa properties. Carver Center bids due Happy Shopper Mrs. Rodney Grabner, 516 Brown, accepts $20 from Roger Wolf, carpet manager of Jilka Furniture store, 131 S. Santa Fe, after she was selected as The Journal's "Happv Shopper of the Week." (Joun. .'hoto) Bids for a new Carver Center, improvements at the Schilling ball diamonds and five city vehicles will be opened at Monday's city commission meeting at 4 p.m. in Room 200 of Government Center. The Carver Center project is funded from the city's Community Development funds and will replace the deteriorated existing structure at 315 N. 2nd. The new building will be located near the existing building. The bids on the ball diamonds represent the latest step in the city's push to provide softball and baseball facilities to replace Blue Jay stadium and other Kansas House okays Laetrile, primary bills TOPEKA, Kan. (UP!) - The Senate met only briefly Friday for committee reports but the House gave final approval to major pieces of legislation, including a Laetrile bill and a presidential primary measure. Representatives voted 72-49 on the Laetrile bill, which would permit doctors to prescribe the apricot pit derivative to treat cancer. Several lawmakers called Laetrile medical quackery during Thursday's floor debate. "It's consumer fraud, too," argued Rep. Charles Schwartz, D-Junction City. "By passing this bill, the Kansas Legislature is saying Laetrile is an effective means of battling cancer. I know the bill doesn't say that, but that's the interpretation it's going to have." First Tuesday in April The presidential primary bill, which won approval 118-6, would establish a primary on the first Tuesday in April during presidential election years. The state would pick up the primary's cost — an estimated $1 million. Proponents said a presidential primary would focus national attention on Kansas and give the state's voters more voice in selecting presidential candidates. The House also approved bills easing training requirements for nursing diamonds formerly located in Kenwood Park. The improvements are scheduled to be installed in time for use this summer. Also on the agenda is a petition from several residents on Edward and nearby South Salina streets. The petition asks that "no parking" signs be installed on the south side of Wayne between Roach and Lewis. The residents' petition says apartment dwellers nearby are not using the parking lots at their buildings and instead are parking in the street, causing congestion and traffic hazards. home aides; calling for a study of whether an osteopathic medicine and surgery college should be affiliated with Wichita State University and setting out final disposition of the governor's papers and records. House Minority Leader Wendell Lady, R-Overland Park, shepherded a sunset bill to tentative approval, though not before it was expanded significantly. Lady's bill would have forced most of the state's fee agencies, or those financed by fees, to justify their existence periodically or be abolished. Lady said the agencies would have to show their absence would harm the public health, safety or welfare; that no other agency efficiently could absorb their duties and that they did not cost more than their worth to Kansans. Rep. Loren Hohman, D-Topeka, offered a successful amendment spreading the sunset provisions to the major state bureaucracies, among them the Department of Corrections and the Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services. A proposed constitutional amendment that would have allowed citizens to initiate their own constitutional amendments failed by five votes, 50-55. Presently, changes in the state's constitution must start in the Legislature or with a constitutional convention. Rep. E. Richard Brewster, D-Topeka, said House members had to make a policy decision on the issue: whether they wanted a purely republican, representative form of government or whether they wanted to move toward a participatory democracy. Rep. Douglas Baker, D-Pittsburg, said special interest groups could and would abuse the option. "I think if you gave me $50,000 and five or six skilled orators, I could get anything I wanted on the ballot?' he said. Rep. O. "Red" Mills, D-Medicine Lodge, warned that the measure would allow changes in any part of the constitution. "Presumably, voters could repeal the sales tax, cut legislative salaries — just about anything," he said. "The result would be chaos." The House agreed to appoint a new conference committee to consider changes in a brand exchange bill for prescription medicine. The House and Senate passed different versions, and the first conference committee was unable to settle the differences. Representatives sent the governor measures forbidding the use of state funds to buy identifiable imported meats, requiring soil additive firms to support their claims with verifiable data and providing reparation in certain instances for low-income victims of violent crimes. Carlin not worried by lavish legislative spending proposals TOPEKA, Kan. (UPI) - House Speaker John Carlin, D-Smolan, Friday said spending proposed by the 1978 Legislature had outstripped Gov. Robert Bennett's recommended budget by some $30 million. But the speaker was undismayed. "This situation isn't unusual at this point of the session," Carlin said. "It's obvious we're going to have to make some hard decisions and set priorities. At the finish, the legislative budget and the governor's recommendations will be very, very close in totals, though somewhat different in emphasis." Some of the differences would concern community corrections programs and a new medium security prison sought by the governor, Carlin said, but he predicted $103 million would remain in state coffers as an ending balance for fiscal 1979. Carlin again refused to confirm whether he will run for the governorship. "I'm not saying for sure what I'm going to do until the Legislature goes home for good," the speaker said, smiling. He declined to comment on recent attacks on Attorney General Curt Schneider, a fellow Democrat and potential opponent for the Democratic nomination for governor. "There's been a lot of comment and talk, but I don't have to be concerned about what's going on in the attorney general's office," the speaker said. "I'm busy with the Legislature." He said he was pleased with the House's pace since last Monday. Representatives groggy with fatigue from the week's double sessions greeted Friday's early afternoon adjournment with visible relief. >, Use-value appraisal legislation, ap- J parently killed by the Senate, still % might be approved, Carlin said. The bill would have set up mechanisms for taxing farm land differently from other property, which Kansas voters authorized in 1976.
