UPIi -The high rollers were there, Cary Grant checked into a 20th floor suite and the casino dealen lined up like soldiers for the reopening of the fire-ravaged MGM Grand Hotel. Although the official reopening of the huge hotel was not until today, big spenders extended special invitations drifted into the casino beginning Wednesday at noon. Eight " months ago, the" casino ' was gutted by. the second worst hotel fire in American history that killed 85 people and injured another 700. Now every one of the MGM Grand's 2.076 rooms are booked through August, .'"ll is the safest hotel in the world," insisted Grant, the actor who is also a member of the hotel's board of directors. It was as though the gambling had never been interrupted by the $S0-miIlion, round-the-clock rebuilding that erased the scars of the Nov. 21 blaze from the elegant building. Every gambling table was open in the 50, 000-squa re-foot gaming hall, which is larger than a football field and lighted by crystal chandeliers. Almost 2,000 sprinkler heads poked unobtrusively out of the mirrored casino ceiling. They are part of a tS-million computerized safety and alarm system. The morning of the fire, no alarms sounded and smoke filled stairwellsTT killing those who were trapped. ' Financier Kirk Kerkorian, who opened the hotel Dec. 5. "1973. was there eating lunch in the coffee shop. Grant strolled past the registration desk and the customers lined up waiting for their keys. . "We are delighted to be open," said Grant. "The fire was unfortunate. We must forget it. The public is coming. t-We are open. It is the safest hotel in the world."' Grant said he was staying in a suite on the 20th floor of the 26-story. 2 S-million-squa re-foot resort. "Of course I'm on the 20th, the rooms are delightful," said Grant. Many people staying on the upper floors last Nov. 21 were left hanging from their balconies, screaming for help, as smoke and fire filled the hotel "and trapped many victims. Many were airlifted to safety by helicopters. "Give us an hour and this place will start and never stop again." said a roulette dealer who was relieved to be back at work. When the casino opened at noon, be and the other TSuTormed dealers stood at their posts behind empty tables, just waiting. One thousand slot machines, tested and ready for action, began to clink with coins as the casino filled. The casino, which employs 1,500 people, has 10 crap tables, 70 blackjack games, six roulette Indiana Brief wheels, a 100-seat keno lounge, plus , poker, big-six wheels and baccarat The idle casino cut heavily into state gaming revenues and swelled Nevada's foempkyment rolls. Many employees have not worked since the fire. The MGM Grand is one of the largest tax contributors to the state's $1 billion gaming business. Fire officials said an electrical fault in a restaurant started the' blaze, which quickly spread. Rosalie ManganellL who worked in the restaurant the day of the fire and has not worked since, was glad to be back on the job. "I don't even think about the fire. It was like a bad dream, but this is what we were waiting for." BLOOM INGTQN tVPl) -The Indiana United Methodist Church will be host to a week-long conference of 1,300 church leaders from around the nation. The session beginning Sunday will involve church music and worship leaders and will be staged at Indiana University. 1 . CeaEhut ' FUNERAL HOME .
