The corporation for the first seven years will pay an annual rental amounting to 7 per cent of its Gross operating revenues.

Rental none. Some news accounts incorrectly reported that regardless of its total revenues the most the new corporation would pay for any of the first seven years would be $31,500, which is 7 per cent of $450,000. According to the lease however a and this was confirmed by pub commissioner Ernest w. Gibson Iii a the straight 7 per cent return to the state could go higher if the corporation s revenues exceed $450,000. The rent would be payable on a monthly basis.
