1935 - Alva Bans Card Games
Here is an interesting old news article that appeared in The Oklahoman, dated August 18, 1935, page 58, with headlines that read: "Alva's Ordinance Bans Card Games." Does it still hold true today?
Alva, Aug. 17, 1935 -- Special -- "Still hot after the gambling mushroom, which has caused the city council no end of sleepless nights, the city this week hurled down a ban against playing cards in all public places.
"Ostensibly it was aimed to eliminate the playing of the game of 'moon' with cards, a domino game which was outlawed a month ago. So broad is the ordinance, however, that it outlaws as well the playing of bridge or other card games in restaurants and other public places."
