Name stables, S100.000 purses staggering attendance, daily handles of nramid $050.000. ft grew mull Hie Iraek voluntarily cut the percentage of Its "take." Seeking more revenue, Gov. Cul- tcrt L. Olson last year tacked a measure raising ihe stale's "lake" on a graduated scale—the higher the heavier. The bill was beaten In the Senate. A similar idea bobbed up at the special legislative session this year . . . brought charges. The Santa Anila people and their supporters said it was almost a shakedown. One of the factors, It j s whispered, Is thai Norman Church had a horse named Proclivity in n S10.- OOOSniua yinlta stake, which It won although apparently out of ils class. The commission ordered icsts macte, proved doping, and kicked Church's trainer oil the truck. SKAUISCUIT MAKES THEM I'oitoiiT rot.mcAi. i.'iG'iiT There WHS no rcfleclion on Church, but the wealthy turfman Is reported lo have taken it as a leisonal alfronl. and it is said that ils Idea hi contributing $80,000 lo Governor Olson's campaign fund H.IS to be in « position' to help boot off the commission everyone having a hand in the Proclivity case. And those close to the situation declare he succeeded. A committee was named lo investigate racing. Hearings have been held and plenty luis been heard about proposed deals for dates, "heat" lo get political contributions. Testimony that Church contributed to the Olson campaign to settle « grudge with the Saiua Anita owners brought threats of perjury charges from Church. Wire-tapping charges and the furor of making or strangling political capital has been lit. top ; ,ii c ], n i. B time when Ihe governor nnd the legislative majority arc split, and recall moves pop up. There was some concern lest (he charges result in crystallization of ami-racing sentiment. If there was any serious lhou"hl along Ihis line. It seems to have one little race horse. Sciiblscuit's great comeback so dramatized the sport that he has solidified interest in nscing in California as Man o' War did years ago throughout the country.
