Bay Meadows, off again-on again plant at San Matco. Calif., received permissoin late yesterday to open a 25-day session and the officials said they would start today — before a mind could be changed. The meeting will continue until May 8, with five day's profits going to war relief. The officials' decision filled two more days of a turf void that was to have existed from March 21 to April 8, when the Easter season got. under way at Jamaica. But the California track already had closed three days of the sports' only extended holiday in more than two decades with a hastily staged Navy relief program on the final three clays of last week.

Pimlico's expanded session has its 1943 debut billed for April Hi but before then the racing fans will have witnessed Jamaica's $7,500 Paumonok handicap in which Mrs. Tilyou Christopher's Doublrab is top'weightcd at. 130 pounds.

C'eSning The Cuff Stretch Murphy, former Purdue renter recently named by coaches PRINCE ALBERT THE NATIONAL JOY SMOKE T HE MISSOURI PACIFIC LINES are playing an important part in "one of the great jobs of the war." In the eleven states they serve are hundreds of war plants, scores of army and nayy training centers. Their rails cross vast areas that produce wheat, cotton, corn, cattle, fruits and vegetables. They tap other large areas whence comes the bulk of the nation's oil and timber supplies and still others where mines yield coal and a variety of essential minerals. •fc Troops, munitions, food and fuel! These are our country's answer to the dictators, and they are moving unceasingly and in ever increasing numbers and quantities over the rails of the Missouri Pacific Lines. MISSOURI PACIFIC , LIMES , •fa Heavy as the transportation demands have been and are, additional ones are certain—demands that must be met with comparatively little additional equipment, for materials necessary for construction of cars and locomotives are held to be more urgently needed for war purposes. •fc But there are no priorities on determination, no bans on willingness or inia- tive. Missouri Pacific Lines and their more than 40,000 loyal and able employes are pledged to give the government and civilian patrons the best, safest and most dependable transportation service possible. To successfully fulfill that pledge they need—and request—the continued cooperation of shippers and travelers. .,"ii Total reporter to date ... $9,730.20 Monrovia, Africa, was named for James Monroe, the fifth president of the United Slates.
