They were among the most positive statements of County Judge Horace M. Barker and police chief, Tom Dover. The people of Jefferson County expect to see the criminal element that centers around county gambling spots find the county so unhealthy for them that they would crawl back into Louisville or elsewhere' The general opinion in the county may be summed up in another statement made up by a resident who admitted that he had been on occasion a patron of some of the county hot spots.
