Wooden Dice Game Is Closed at Local Fair

One gambling concession was closed and another was modified by county officials at the fair grounds last night, State's Attorney F.E. McCurdy said today.

The owner of a gambling device utilizing several large wooden dice, which was clearly as "robbery stunt," the attorney said, was ordered to discontinue activities. The modified device was a part of the Northern Exposition Shows, carnival secured for the first show of the Rodeo and Racing association.

Three deputy sheriffs interfered with the illegal practices upon the order of the state's attorney.
