Susanville Elks to Entertain with Gambling Games
July 31st, 1926

The Susanville Lodge of Elks will have charge of the ’49 camp during the Legion convention here, August 16th to 20th, following a joint meeting of representatives of the two organizations.

The local ballpark will be built into an old-time camp and roulette wheels, sideshows and other concessions will be built.

There will be money for all but it will be of the “bull” coin variety and those participating will use an anonymous currency which is being printed and which will be sold for the real cash, to get around anti-gambling laws.
