Har mycket bra skick utan slitna och krökta hörnor.

OBS! Färgen vid kanten finns inte i originalet. Det har uppstått vid scanning då maskinen färglade kanten som var böjd.

Text på baksidan: "En romantisk 'Vild-västern' atmosfär råder i Las Vegas"

Text på tidnings klipp: "Wild West-atmosfär av det mer museala slaget finns det också i Las Vegas"

På internet: On April 15, 1955, it was announced that the Nevada Tax Commission will hold a regular meeting on April 25, 1955, to hear plans of an ownership change of the resort. It was stated that three California men, Irving Leff, Stanley Leeds, and Maurice Friedman was going to outline an intricate series of financial maneuvers. They had previously planned to mortgage the assets of the Hotel Last Frontier to gain enough capital to buy out Jake Kozloff and Beldon Katleman but it was rejected stating they needed more hard cash. Katleman appeared before the April 15th meeting and protested the three men's plans. He referred to them as "promoters" who were offering a "watered down" proposition.

On May 23, 1955, it was reported that attorneys called Beldon Katleman and Maury Friedman to meet them in Friedman's office to discuss a possible settlement. The discussions fell apart when Katleman and Friedman got into a fist fight. Friedman accused Katleman of starting the fight. The attorneys were able to stop the fighting before serious injuries incurred.

In May of 1955, Carmen Miranda gave an interview from her dressing room. One of Miranda's skirts contained 85,000 sequins, pasted on by hand, one at a time. It took three women countless hours to complete the task.

During the May 12-16, 1955 Helldorado parade, New Frontier was awarded Best Theme with a float of flying saucers, Atlas and space travel carrying out the hotel's song title, Out of This World.

The LV Women's Bowling Association held its Annual Banquet in the Ramona Room. Stan Irwin of the Sahara was the MC.

In May of 1955, it was noted that the Dorsey Brothers and Buddy Lester were proud of the record they established, during their three week stint in the Venus Room. Maitre d' Mac Harris seated audiences, well above capacity for their curtain times. Many were turned away.

Also during this month it was noted that Jake Kozloff resigned as General Manager of the resort and then resumed the same duties the following day, for a temporary stint.

Visitors could partake of the true spirit of the old West by riding in this stage coach.

Kozloff felt that Las Vegas was no longer the "last" frontier, and changed its name to "The New Frontier". The slogan was also changed to "Out of This World".
