34 THE JOURNAL HERALD Wednesday. April 9. 1975 DAVTON, OHIO Las Vegas Hilton opens tower ;" LAS VEGAS - Conrad Hilton, who is in his late 80s, stood tall and erect and alert iaa well-tailored youthful-looking light blue suit as they -dedicated 620 new rooms in the tower addition of the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel. ' It made it "the world's larg- "es resort and convention the premier hotel of the iworld," so his son Barron 'Hilton said. . U,tn the excitement with Liherace arriving to pay trib-! ute, high school girls doing a "rock concert in the lobby and an enormous cocktail party for the whole town I experi-"enced the city's thanks for the .10-story, $20-million addition .which brings the hotel to 2139 -rooms. '.."Connie," the chairman of the board, stood alongside as Barron, president of the company, said, "I'll ask my father if he'll unveil the plaque." And ; the elder Hilton pulled away lihe "veil to considerable applause. - LATER Conrad Hilton told Earl Nj Wilson 1 me, "I've never posed for so many pictures in my life." As chairman of the board of the Hilton Hotels Corp. his name is linked to about 210 hotels and inns around the world ; 19 totally owned and managed in this country, 25 in which Hilton is a managing partner, 105 franchise, and 60 operat-. ing under the : Hilton name outside the U.S. As one who has gone around, the world with Hilton seeing his hotels, I was flattered to be asked to join the party at the Benihana , Hibachi, which is one of the additions. Barron Hilton and his bride Marilyn are parents of eight children, and are unbelievably youthful. They like to talk of Worldwide talent search on for actor to play Bruce Lee Conrad Hilton r e n t i n g out rooms in his mother's house as a boy his start in the hotel business. He still recites Span-, ish poetry he learned on the border. He makes it to his office daily, including Saturday, which is a half day. THE LAS VEGAS Hilton has added exotic luxury baths, with marble arnvrests, Japanese cuisine, and a delicates-san. The existence of a facility called the Vestal Virgin Room is quite a surprise in Las Vegas. MIDNIGHT EARL IN N.Y. The cast . of the musical, "The Night That Made America Famous," trying to keep ' the show alive, took salary cuts to scale minimums; composer Harry Chapin waived his royalties . .". A visiting Asian is shaking up some mid-town cafes, tossing around big tips as in the old days; he gave- $1,150 to the musical trio in an East Side spot, and $50 and $100 bills to waiters "who weren't even at his table!" Ben Vereen had a big enthu-s i a s t i c audience (including Mayor Beame, Dustin Hoffman and Alexis Smith) at his Empire Rm. opening. The former "Pippin" star has a color-f u 1, exciting song-and-dance show. Referring to his role in "Funny lady," he cracked, "There wasn't enough of me in it but next year, when they make 'Funny Man " . . . Later several of ' t h e celebrities headed for the Grand Finale, where the pert and bouncy Mimi Hines un-veiled an entertaining new act . . . Latin singing star Tongolele heads the Chateau . Madrid revue. ' TODAY'S BEST LAUGH: Comic Red Buttons credited his stage training for his suc-c e s s: "Burlesque developed my t i m i n g . . . m y delivery . . . my eyesight" WISH I'D SAID THAT: If you live within your income these days you'll live without worry and without a lot of other things, too. REMEMBERED QUOTE, "Luck is the chief factor be hind the success of the other fellow." Grit. " EARL'S PEARLS, Victor Borge took a memory improvement course, but doesn't know how well it worked: "I've forgotten how bad my memory used to be." EARL'S PEARLS: Victor Borge took a memory im-provmeent course, but doesn't know how well it worked: "I've forgotten how bd my memory used to be." Dolly Dawn, who sang with the George Hall band in the '30s, is entertaining again, at the Riverboat. "I was 14 when I started, in 1935," she says, "and isn't it amazing I'm still only 24!"
