Made 20,000 the lowest that can be collected; if deviation

such as a doctor's diploma, etc. They can be stolen from
each other by landing on the same space. Certain spaces when
landed on directs the player to choose a card from 3 face
up. These give the various play holders of "licenses" an
opportunities to get money. If the player does not have one
of the "licenses" himself he still has to choose a card.
Arthur called. He has changed the name TOWN AND COUNTRY to
FORTUNE ROAD. They have also made some changes in the play.

thinks we are good we will each get $5,000 "earnest money"
even before any games are accepted. I pointed out that we
would not have the incentive to show our best efforts. In

show under these terms. Sullivan was not impressed but
Wexler later (after Sullivan had left) said that maybe, since
this was something I had from before, I could get a royalty
for it. It was too late to show it by then and I said I'd

said it was too slow moving and that there should be money
changing hands with each cards.
Wexler told us of a gambling device he was working on.
A pinball type layout is mounted on a pivot. When it is
turned over to bring a ball to the top, the ball then goes

Claude showed FAR AWAY PLACES. Wexler was interested, but

to reach a specific space. (How about certain pcs. that
want to go to the mountains, others to the seashore, etc.?).
Wald showed FORTUNE ROAD. There were a number of changes
over 6/30, particularly that each player bet against the
bank, not other players. When a player met the "Genius",
who moved same number as number on die, he bet all of
his funds against the bank. There is also a jail in each
