Landmark Tower Opening Cleared * List May Run for State Post Gazette-Journal Carson City Bureau Robert List. Ormsby County's 32-year-old district attorney, said Thursday he is looking very closely at the possibility of running for attorney general next year. List, who became district attorney in 1966 with 70 per cent of the Ormsby vote, said he would not be afraid to take on the present attorney general, Harvey Dickerson, a southern Nevadan. "Dickerson would be a tough candidate. He has a lot of friends and his family has been in public service for generations but nobody is all powerful or unbeatable." List said- But List may not have to worry about Dickerson, who is presently at a two-week convention in the Virgin Islands. A close associate of the attorney general said that Dickerson is considering running for governor, especially if Gov. Paul Laxalt doesn't. List, who was associated with Laxalt's private law firm when he was elected governor, said one of his biggest problems would be money. "If Laxalt doesn't rim for governor there is going to be a hell of a scramble for votes, attention and money. The gubernatorial and Senate candidates will suck up a large portion, leaving little interest in the attorney general race," List said. List said that he, as a Northern Nevadan with little statewide exposure would have to spend a lot of time in Clark County, the state's biggest population center. "Wildcat" Bill Morris, a Las Vegas attorney who Dickerson beat in a 1966 primary, may run again, List said. He said the fact that a Republican attorney general hasn't been elected since 1894 doesn't discourage him. But List agreed no other Republicans have expressed interest in running for attorney general against Dickerson or anybody else. List said he doubts if Washoe County Dist. Atty. William Raggio would consider the job. List also verified he is "not inclined" to run for district at- torney again. His term ends in 1970. The former. Young Republicans for Laxalt chairman in both Laxalt's unsuccessful 1964 senate bid and election to governor in 1966, said he is left with the choice of running for a higher post, or going into private law practice. List, a close personal friend of Laxait, said he would rather not offer a prediction on what the Governor plans to do next year. He said Laxalt, a former Ormsoy district attorney, ably hasn't made up his,o\v mind yet. ' ·«· Adams Resigns Vegas Hospital LAS VEGAS (UPI) - Di Ralph Adams officially resigne as administrator of Southern vada Memorial Hospital effe( tive July 2. He had been dismissed tw weeks ago by the board of tru! tees but he indicated then h would fight it. No successor been named. LAS VEGAS (UPI) -- Legal roadblocks were removed Wednesday as a federal court ruling cleared the way for industrialist Howard Hughes to open the Landmark Tower gambling resort July 1. The space-needle shaped resort has been a towering white elephant on the Las Vegas skyline for eight years. The hotel, located off the Strip near the Convention Center, has never opened its doors for business due to financial problems under several ownerships. The billionaire industrialist purchased the 346-foot high resort last October for $17.3 million when the hotel was in the midst of involuntary bankruptcy proceedings. The purchase was based on the premise that all creditors would be satisfied and bankruptcy dismissed. Hughes' plans for a July 1 opening of the Landmark Tower, his sixth gambling resort in Las Vegas, ran into eleventh hour complications due to a half million dollar claim filed against the previous owners in bankruptcy court. U.S. Dist. Judge Peirson M. Hall of Los Angeles heard several hours of arguments in federal court Wednesday afternoon. Hall, in effect, dismissed the bankruptcy proceedings and cleared the way for Hughes to open the hotel on schedule. The official Hughes takeover was delayed when Sun Realty filed a petition earlier this month against Plaza Tower Inc., the former owners. The real estate firm claimed that Plaza Tower Inc. owed them a half million dollars in commission for the sale of the hotel to Hughes. Federal bankruptcy referee Russell Taylor dismissed bankruptcy June 5, but 11 days later stayed his earlier order which kept the bankruptcy case before the court because of the claim filed by Sun Realty. Tom Bell, an attorney for the Hughes Tool Co., said that Sun Realty was claiming a commission on a sale which it was attempting to block. Judge Hall said Wednesday that it was wrong to permit Sun Realty's claim to hold up, if not jeopardize or destroy, the right of the mortgage holders to get payment and the right of unsecured creditors to get payment. Some 120 c r e d i t o r s filed claims totaling $5.8 million when Plaza Towers Inc. went into bankruptcy. Hall also criticized Taylor for abusing his discretion in not requiring bonded protection to the unsecured creditors" when the Sun Realty petition interbred with the closing of bankruptcy. The court left the door open r or Sun Realty to pursue collec- ion of a sales commission and made no ruling on the validity of the half million dollar claim. The resort has some 500 rooms and a 360 degree view of the as Vegas valley from its bub- )le-top dome perched 31 stories above the ground. The Landmark will have two casinos, one on the ground floor and a second on the 29th floor- Nevada's ony high-rise casino. A spokesman for the hote said that entertainer Danny Thomas would open the Landmark Theater. GRAND OPENING 5:00 P.M. Tuesday July 1 COMPLIMENTARY COCKTAILS 5:00 - 7:00 P.M. 211 N.
