Limit on Casino Owners Placed By Commission Resolution Being Drafted By Loomis CARSON CITY, March 3. (UP! The tax commission decided this week to p l a c e a limit on the number of partners to be licensed in the f u t u r e in any one gambling establishment. Commission Counsel E. Frandsen Loomis of Reno was instructed to draft such a regulation for approval at a meeting to be held late this month. At first, \arious commissioners suggested that a minimum ought to be placed on the percentage interest any one person could hold in a casino. But Loomis pointed out the same thing could be accomplished by limiting the- number of partners to 25 letting them work out their points as the} desired. The action was designed in part to pre\ent any more licenses from being granted to casinos or resort hotels h a \ i n g hundreds or e\en thousands of stockholdtrs.

Smith, commanding officer of the ordnance corps at Herlong, said the reduction in work force reported Sunday had been planned late in 1954 and was "based on strip, lists nine partners and 1,138 stockholders. Since the new rule is to he adopted before the Stardust license is acted upon, it was presumed the stockholders w.ll not be licensed and the hotel's backers will h a v e to solve that problem as best they can The commission again deferred action upon the Stardust application, which is headed by Tony Stralla, onetime Southern California gambling boat operator. The commission informed Stral- la, also known as Tony Cornero, last year that he would never be granted a gambling license as far as they were concerned h.'t he has persisted in efforts to obtain · gaming permit. Others on the application include Jack Deluva, B. W. Silver, Catherine Kastris, Seymour Zimmerman. J. W. Marks, William Peluso, C. J. Rotondo and James P.

Gen. Willard G. Wyman, Sixth Army commander and director of Exercise Desert Rock VI, expressed satisfaction today with the operation of American soldiers in the atomic detonations in the Nevada test site. Wyman made an inspection of forward trenches at the site from a helicopter and a tour of the area oil foot. The results of these tests should be extremely beneficial," Wyman said. "Our combat unit structure is being re-examined and new combat division organizations now are being tested in the field our officers and enlisted men are learning that there are ways and means of defending themselves a g a i n s t atomic attack. They are learning that our Army in the field, with its family of atomic weapons, can use them with telling effect." Wyman said that an Army tank, artillery pieces, a maintenance truck, various other vehicles, u n i f o r m e d dummies, b u n k e r s , emplacements and other equipment were being placed at distances of 100 yards to 2.000 yards from "ground zero" in the *csts Reno Police Department's Bureau of Identification Collected $468 Last Month Reno's police bureau of identification collected $461 last month in permit fees from taxi drivers, solicitors and gambling club employes.
