40 years ago: AG to monitor games at state fair

September 17, 2011


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Sept. 17, 1971:

Kansas Atty. Gen. Vern Miller announced that he would be at the State Fair in Hutchinson during the coming weekend to check on the games being played. He anticipated no problems, but he said he wanted to be sure that none of the games violated Kansas gambling laws. Miller said his concern had arisen from two complaints he had received about games played at county fairs earlier this year, in which customers said they had lost large sums of money.

New Kansas automobile license plates were to be issued beginning February 1972. It was announced that the new tags would have bright gold numerals printed on dark green.
