HOPE (ARK) STAR, Printed by Offset Stockmen Hold Annual Barbecue Here Thousands Gamble in Caribbean Left to right: Ralph Montgomery, Dale Jones, Robert LaGrone, Blant Jones, Wayne Atterbury, Bill Mosley and Cecil Bittle. — Mrs. Ned Purtle photos with Star camera By EUGENE J. BROWN The Danbury (Conn.) News* Times DANBURY, Conn, (AP) - If gambling is an evil, thousands of North American tourists are willing to jet several thousand miles across the water to meet that evil head on among the Caribbean islands. The gambling fraternity does have the choice of flying to Las Vegas, Nev., where you don't need an up-to-date smallpox vaccination but where you do meet the ever present Internal Revenue Service agents who may sidle up to you in the midst of a winning streak and whisper in your ear: "Don't forget to declare your winnings on your Form 1040." And if you lose, what glamor is there losing in just another of the 50 states when you could say: "They took me in Curacao; they busted me in Antigua; look at my tropical tan." But without junkets gambling would be a minor enterprise. Briefly the junket is a chartered plane or a group of tourists who pay $300 and get everything else free including the free chips. A junket requires a junketeer or an agent, or a tourguide as he may be called. Its his job to develop tours from his particu* lar city for a particular las Ve» gas casino. So successful is this system that the plane traffic at Las Vegas looks like Kennedy Airport. The small islands of the Caribbean, short of income to meet the needs of their poverty- stricken population, have not been blind to the "Vegas junket syndrome." With their tropical beaches, low-salaried help and cooperative governments, the gambling syndicates have set up shop on the islands by simply taking over the junket format. In a manner these gambling junkets have an "almost-free" hooker attached. For instance, if a person wanted to go to Antigua or practically any other island in the Caribbean for the purpose of trying his luck against the casino odds, his fare plus four or five days at a luxurious hotel including most of the extras would be $500. He could take his wife along too (and many do) for only $225 extra. And in addition he would receive $500 free in nonnegotiable gambling chips. The term "nonnegotiable" designates the chips that are to be used for gambling only and can't be cashed immediately upon arrival at your destination. These special chips are "seed" to start your streak of luck. It would be indeed a rare bird who failed to succumb to the gaming tables when he or she is sure that he can win on his free chips. So sure is the house that you will gamble and lose, that if you show a sincere desire to play the games, they will even give you the cash for your free chips. All you've got to do is play a little and pray a lot. Gambling with free "junket" chips is much the same as eating peanuts. Whoever stopped at one peanut? There is obviously something wrong with the logic Thursday, May 9,1968 of those who go on a gambling junket. For the casino to give you $500 of free chips which reimburses you for the $500 junket expenses, they must expect you to lose. To break even the house must figure on your losing your $500 free chip money plus an average of $500 in hard cash. Thus the average player is out his $500 tour expense plus $500 in cash. The favorite casino gambling games seem to be of the standard American variety: blackjack or 21, roulette and dice. VVHKRK'I) YOti DRIVF. IN? PMOl-NIX, Ari/. (AP) Bit designer of ;i coin-opcnited downtown parking lot litre apparently either believes in Harmim's comment about suckers or thinks motorists \vould rather pay 20 cen'ts than drive one-half block. The lot extends across half a city block from a fairly busy street to one that's not so busy. If a motorist uses the entrance on the busy street side, he pays 50 cents; if he dri\es half a block further arid enters from the other street, the charue is .11) cents. § ' Leo Ray.
