  • Monday, Dec. 20, 1965 — In a show of force, several state liquor inspectors were in Las Vegas Saturday night checking local liquor establishments. State Liquor Director Howard Babcock’s office today termed the visit “routine inspections”; however, an earlier report indicated they were a show of strength by the State Liquor Division, probably resulting from a Dec. 4 incident involving Las Vegans and a liquor inspector.
