FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1950 BLYTHEVIUT, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Police Uncover Slate 'Gypper Gyping System 'Arkansas Bookies Fleeced by Using .Short Wave Radio MEMPHIS, Tcnn.. Sept. 29, M 1 )— A telephone-radio relay that provided a foolproof system of clipping Arkansas bookies on horse race bets hns been uncovered by police here. Latest victims operated at the "21 Club" in Forrest City. Ark., commissioner Joe Boyle said, but the r!ne also plucked bookies In fit. Louis. Ne\v Orleans, Chicago and Bonon. Boyle, In a statement last night, sa!d the Ingenious setup provided a direct communications link be- t'X'ecn a gambler lounging comfortably in the 21 Chib and race tracks in Chicago and Miami. He said the nonchalant gambler — with a shortwave radio receiver snus beneath his shirt—would be flashed the name of the winning horse in time for him to get down a cinch bet before the bookie's deadline. Hassurd Is Arrester! Tlie system was revealed when police here, at the request of Arkansas authorities, arrested Francis David Hassard, 45. of East St. Louis. Hi., In a downtown hotel. He had a radio transmitter and receiver with him, packed In two suitcases. Three other men were arrested by Arkansas State Police shortly be- fpje Hassard was picked up. They ^fte llvsted as Lawrence G. Bennett, Wot Gary, Ind.; William D. Wise, 43, ol Rock Island, III.; and Ivan L. Schmidt, 41, of North Liberty, la. In Little Rock. Herman Lindsey, .director of the State Police, said the state was not investigating the case. The three men were held In the St. Francis County Jail In Forrest City on city charges or vagrancy. Hassard faced no local charge, Boyle said, and told police he will fight any move to extradite him to Arkansas "Gyplnj the Oyppers" The commissioner -said Hassard told officers the ring was merely "Kypmz the gyppers." Bookie operations are Illegal In Arkansas. Here's the way the relay worked, as outlined by the commissioner: One of the gang, stationed In a Forrest City hotel, would place a long-distance telephone call to a confederate at a race track. The instant the race ended the winner would be flashed to the hotel.,man who—using the shortwave transmitter — would broadcast the horse's name and the man In the 21 Club would place his bets. Boyle, said police' arrested and -investigated the three men after '-,9>Sie owner of the hotel where they stayed in Forrest City became cur- lolls about the multitude of long- distance, calla that tied up his switchboard. Hs said the Arkansas bookies were probably taken for "about »1,500" before the rtng was discovered. MtHURCHB Blythcville FULL GOSPEL TABKKNACLE Lilly and Vine E. T.
