"ll member tracks. Including the Msgesl raceways la (lie country, h'lvo brnmd themselves to abide by the new regulations, which T.R.A. President James E. noolcy said w','1 fcrvc as n greater protection for the two groups vitally concerned irj the sport— the spectators and tiie participants." 'Hie most important measure ::micd in the edict provided that nny racetrack employee who hears of any attempts to bribe, fix, or otherwise Influence the result ol any race must report that he has h*ard to the track stewards for investigation by the Thoroughbred KAcing Protective Bureau, headed by former G-man Spencer Drayton.
