WHAT IS A CRAP GAM E?

“ Craps” is a game of chance — a gamble — played w ith two dice. It is illegal and, therefore, much favoured by the characters who frequent Broadway. Whenever a group of enthusiasts gathers, anxious to “ Shoot Craps” , one always finds a gentleman willing to set the game up for them — for a modest percentage of the winnings of course! Just such a man is Nathan Detroit, and tonight we see his attempts to find a place where the cream of the gambling fraternity can get a little “ action” . This is not so easy because the police do not like gamblers, and it would appear that their only mission in life is to break up the game. So the Guys get pushed around and the Dolls (who, after all, are ladies and, therefore, do not approve of gambling) take sides with the police. There is a third group, who do not take sides with anyone. In fact, through the good offices of the “ Save-a-soul Mission” they rather hope to win everyone over to their side! A betting man might hesitate to lay odds on the outcome of such a situation, but there is one thing sure — it is 12 to 7 on that there will be a happy ending ! One further point — having joined the gambling fraternity, it is essential to learn a few of their strange words. For instance, a G is short for grand which means 1,000 dollars (or bucks or potatoes), w hilst a note has nothing to do with music — it is simply a 100 dollar bill. Money is “ Lettuce” , a “ M arker” is an I.O.U. “ Craps” you win and “ Snake-eyes” you lose.
