Today's Sport Parade By HBNK.T MMLUIOBX NEW YORK, April 10. ilJP) — The New York racing season opens al Jamaica next Monday afternoon, nnd wliile-the program hasn't been formally announced I nm quite sure It will include the following events: The State Senator's Handicap. The Grab Iteg Onllop. The Wardheclers' Stake. The Fleecers' Futurity. The Politicians' Realization. If this curd surprises you, then you obviously haven't kept abreast of political 'nctivllics In New York State since the Durmigsn bill legalizing pari-tnutuel belling was passed. Everybody making a living off Hie voters' money has risen to a point of motion on some asssmbly floor or another nnd suggested a ways and means of getting more of the voters' money by taxing Ihc parl-miiluel play. With a ten per cent "bill-" on the bcltors' money already agreed upon, plus the "genteel ' larceny known as "breakage." the politicians ' still aren't satisfied. Only yesterday a member of the New York City council' proposed Hint each track be tased $1,000 per race, per flay, per meeting, per season! He offered no justification for Ihls al fresco pickpockelhig—Just got up and gave it. oft nK if it were n hell of an idea.
