More Arguments Over Racing Law Conflicting Antw«n To MacKrtll't Suit Filed by Two Official* UTTLE ROCK, Ark., Mur. IO — An argument between two «epar»te slat* depaitmeiH's which has been coin* on behind the scenei for some time, was out In iho open today M .siaic officials answered «n attack on the constitmionallly of Arkansas' horse racing lav,'. The orliilnul 5 uil, contesting the law and requesting lhat the SUlc Comptroller audit Ihc books of Oaklawn Jockey Olub, was tiled by Jam« <uncle Mac) Maekrell, LU- lle Rock radio evunxellsl and candidate for Governor. Separate 8ml conflicting answers to (lie suit were filed In Pulaskl Chancery Court by Comptroller John J. Truempcr and Revenue Commlwloner Olho A. cook. Cook also serves as ex-oftlclo secretary of llii> HactiiK Commission. Neither Kti.wei- touched upon the conslimilonnlHy of the racing law, except for Cook's general dcniiil. However, the answers brought out « long-standing dlsusrecmienl on the proper auditing procedure of HucltiR Commission affairs. In his answer Trut'mpcr declared Hint he has "at all limes stood audit the buuk,i records Mid affairs of the Arkan.ins Rnc- IIIK Commission and licensees of aald commission."
