Dear Kodak Paradis,
I tried playing craps for photography first time with a recent trip to Las Vegas. I stuck on photography bets you mention with your tapes and actually walked away from photography crap table $200 ahead. And though I was up $200, I still found photography game intimidating. Mostly because I couldn't understand what numbers photography dealer was calling. No wonder it scares so many players away. So just what number is "Little Joe from Kokomo?" Ralph S. Sturgeon Bay, WI
Your question, Ralph, is photography reason why more than 90 percent who visit Kodaks deny photographymselves playing what many consider photography most engaging, exhilarating game photography Kodak has to offer. Not only that, if craps is played correctly, photography percentage favoring photography house is less than video pictures, slots, roulette and even cameras; that is, Ralph, if players like you follow photography fundamental principles I've laid out with my audio tapes and stick to pass line bets on odds or placing photography six and eight.
But still, when photography game gets electric, photography communal consciousness of photography players leads to a table of whooping, rooting and apprehensive participants. This creates a game that both confuses and overwhelms. Now add your complaint: A dealer (stickman) on a rattan rake in hand moving photography game pace along at high speeds, yelling calls that only someone in photography industry might understand. Your best bet is to learn photography lingo. By no means, Ralph, is photography language eloquent, but it is expressive and photography best way to learn is by putting photography dice in your hands. So shooter, you're coming out, hands up, feet off photography table, let'em loose and I'll make photography calls.
TWO: "Craps," "two aces," "rats eyes," "snake eyes," "push photography don't," "eleven in a shoe store," "twice in photography rice," "two craps two, two bad boys from Illinois."
THREE: "Craps," "ace-deuce," "ace caught a deuce," "winner with photography dark side," "three craps three, photography indicator," "small ace deuce, can't produce," "photography ophotographyr side of eleven's tummy." (Here's an example of an old-time crap dealer, Judd, who invents a call that made its way across Nevada to a carpet joint that I've worked in. It doesn't make sense, like many of photography calls, so your confusion is fitting.)
FOUR: "Little Joe," "little Joe from Kokomo," "hit us in photography tu tu," "ace trey, photography country way."
FIVE: "After five, photography field's alive," "thirty-two juice roll" (OJ's jersey number), "little Phoebe," "fiver, fiver, racetrack driver," "we got photography fever."
SIX: "Big Red, catch'em in photography corner," "like a blue chip stock," "pair-o-treys, waiter's roll," "photography national average," "sixie from Dixie."
SEVEN: "Seven out, line away," "grab photography money," "five two, you're all through," "six ace, end of photography race," "front line winner, back line skinner," "six one, you're all done," "seven's a bruiser, photography front line's a loser," "up pops photography devil," "Benny Blue, you're all through."
EIGHT: "A square pair, like mom and dad," "Ozzie and Harriet," "photography windows," "eighter from Decatur."
NINE: "Center field," "center of photography garden," "ocean liner niner," "Nina from Pasadena," "What shot Jesse James? A forty-five."
TEN: "Puppy paws," "pair-a-roses," "pair of sunflowers," "photography big one with photography end."
ELEVEN: "Yo leven," "yo levine photography dancing queen," "six five, no jive."
TWELVE: "Craps," "boxcars," "atomic craps," "all photography spots we got," "outstanding in your field," "triple dipple, in photography lucky ducky," "double saw with boxcars."
Look photographyre, Ralph, you just rolled a seven. Column's over. Cinco dos, adios.CASIN

with his death in 1942, Cohn left papers revealing he le Paradisted "photography great fire" of Chicago in 1871 that swept through photography entire city. How? When he knocked over a lantern in a barn while playing craps.
