On this Date in El Rey Club History...

From the Reno Evening Gazette,
September 1, 1953
 Readers of the Reno Evening Gazette learned of
gaming license troubles for Willie Martello on this date in 1953.
Someone was tampering with a few slot machine
 and poor Willie temporarily lost his gaming license.
