Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Las Vegas Lounges close LAS VEGAS, Nuv. (AP) For two decodes they have been a shov.'place toe ncw- comcrs, Ilic salvation of stars who never made superstar, and Hie refuge of old names hanging on. For llio Uvo-di'ink minimum of about J5 they're now, as al- ways, the best entertainment buy in But the lounges in the Las Vegas Strip hotel casinos are on the way out, v i e t i in of profil-and-loss statements in a new era. "It's a matter of econom- says Sidney Gallirid, cn- terlainment director for Caes- sars Palace, which closed its lounge last year. "Entertain- ment is very high priced and in a small room you jut.t can not make it pay." DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS A. HOSACK Certified Denial Mechanic Nalional Storo Bldg. Ph. 327-7214 Lelhbridgi A lounge is a room scaling 150 lo 500 persons, ha.-d by the casino. They serve drinks only feature contin- uous entertainment wilh three or four acts headlined by a star making perhaps a week. By contrast Ilic main showrooms seat 000 to serve dinner, and pay the en- tertainment w o r 1 d 's elite lo a week. PROFIT BECOMES AIM It was only recently that mailing it pay became the ob- ject of running a lounge. They were long considered casino draws, an expense to be writ- ten off against getting players into the house and keeping the losers happpy. The lounges started in the early 1950s, a few years after the Flamingo Hotel was built to open the Strip. They began as raised platforms above the casino bars. People at the gambling tables could hear the music, wander over for a drink and watch the show. It was five years ago that The Following Lethbridge Hotels WILL OPEN AT P.M.

"But where's Ihe fog I've hoard so much ahout? "I've seen some sun and a hit of rain, but not a wisp of fog." Tlie fact is you hardly ever see fog in London any more. In days gone by, London's fogs inspired peels, novelists and songwriters. A Foggy Day in London Town and The Foggy Foggy Dew are two songs that mean London and Britain to a great people all around the world. But it's all a myth nowa- days. Every three hours, for many years, the British gov- ernment's meteorological team has had a good hard Icok to see hew far it can see. Checking visibility, it's called. In the winter of 1952-1953, when L o n d o n 's worst fog choked people to death, the meleorological team found if ccnld sec less than 500 metres, or sny 550 yards, on 118 occasions. The latest comparable fig- ures show that the team could see less than 500 metres on only nine occasions. What has caused such a dramatic change? The an- swer, said the meteorological office is: "Britain's Clean Air Act is working and at the same time there seems lo be a change in Britain's climate, which we're still trying to fig- ure out." Under Ihe Clean Air Act, Londoners, and residents in olher specified parts of Brit- ain, mmt burn only smokeless fuel in homes. That cuts out the tarn' oils, grit, sul- phur dioxide and other nox- ious elements that helped cre- ate Britain's notorious pea- CUTTY SARK Coming!

A man at ths meteorological office said: "The British weather has been changing since 1940. It's hcen getting slighlly colder. But variations in the weather picture are nothing new to Britain. "Did you know that we used to grow grapes in Britain in the days of the Romans, and make wine, too? We don't know why the weather has changed. We're trying to find out." Whatever the reason, Brit- ain's air is GO per cent cleaner than it was 15 years ago, said Rear-Admiral Philip G. Sharp, director of the Na- tional Society for Clean Air. The Clean Air Act became law in 1957. laiuiday, Auautl 5R, _ THE IFTHBRIOGf HERALD 7 Oil discovered in California LOS ANCiiaES (Al') Mc- Culloch Oil says it has s i 'k oil in an exploratory well in Kings County in ihc San Joa- quin Valley of California.
