SEVENTEEN MutuelTake At State Race Tracks Lower Governor Lone Seeks Belter Co-operation With Olher Stales BALTIMORE—(/I 3 )—The intake a " Maryland race tracks is dwindling says the State Racing Commission and the remedy is better interstat co-operation. The intake last year was S80.553,- 560. of'which'the state's share-was S3.844.102. The pari-mutuel handl at the four one-mile tracks in Maryland—Pimlico, Bowie, LaureJ and Havre De . Grace—was lower In 1948 than 1947 by nearly '$15,' 000.000. or 15.36 per cent.. The half-mile tracks were $500,000 below J947, or 3.09 per. cent.' : In its annual 'report to 'Governoi Lane-; the commission said, the,answer is for Maryland and neigh b->r- Ing suites each to "make some concessions to the others- and restrict its number of days of racing within reasonable limits." It added that the. avoidance ol uonnieUng'dates "is becoming difficult if not impossible with the Increasing number of days of racing in neighboring states." The Rovej-nor was told that con current sessions last year at Havre . De Grace and Garden State (Camden. N. J.) ended by hurting both tracks. Another Havre ,De Grace session last year, moved up to midsummer to avoid another conflict, did even worse. All the mile tracks showed a decrease, with Havre .De Grace doivn nearly 30 per cent and Pimlico down more than 16 per cent. Of the half-mile tracks Marlboro fell more than 13 per ,cent. Bel 'Air fell slightly while the other half-mile tracks showed slight in- cr,eases. ... The report backed, a request- of the county fair associations.- wr/lch asked a lightening of taxes boosted by the legislature 'two years ago.
