Culbertson Offers to Prove That Gambling Does Not Pay SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 27. — 'UP)—The Four. Leaf Clover boys. who clipped tlie roulette wheels in Las Vegas, Nev., for $103,700 three weeks ago "with a system'' aren't gambling any more for the; Present despite Ely ciilbertsotv s invitation to separate them from their dough. Ert Scofield, a 30-year-old Hollywood film writer with red tmir and a four-leaf clover sewed on his shirt, relaxed n t his mother's home here today, his interest in the clicking white ball burled under a heap or bigger and safer ideas. Ecofield, Sam Taylor, another movie writer, and Ben Harrison, a mathematician from Canada-, reportedly ran a few hundred dollars into more than 100 G's al Las Vegas casinos. At Chandler, Ariz., Culberlson, the bridge expert and author, was willing lo call the Hollywood trio's luck by offering to put up his own money against their roulette system. Ciilbcrtson, who said he would put up the wheel anywhere in Nev- acln, where it w as legal, offered "to pay in cash anything they win. But if I win, .which I am sure to do. I will donate the $104,000 they reportedly won to a special fouiir dation which will educate the nnli- lic to the elementary •mnlliemnli- cal principal that gambling, as a game of pure chance, does not pay. 1 ' You can lake it from CulbcrUson there is no system to beat a gambling game like ronletle "where the house has the enormous advantage of periodically collccling an inv'/- iblc kitty in the shape of a zero or a double zero." "I feel sorry for Scofield ant Taylor." Culberlson said. "If Ihe get the gambling fever—and winners usually tin—they'll find ou inevitably the $104,000 they won I., slnirly money 'loaned to them by a gambling house, which they will lose back with all their own money as interest."
