r& CITY 20 The Arizona Republic MAIL H Pboenfe, fiw§., Nov. 4, It/J ^ More about Dog track Miles seriously in Phoenix fire Continued From Page 19 luctance to meet the issues and suggested, "Maybe he has something to hide." In addition to attacking the Funk rules, Jenkins went into several other issues. The commission, he said, should make a complete investigation when it appears that the ownership of any racing permit has substantially changed. "This commission should concern itself at all times with who owns these racing corporations," Jenkins said. "Anybody who has the money and the acquiescence of the per- mittee can control racing, and you wouldn't know a thing about it." (The Arizona Republic, in a series of stories on the dog tracks, has established that the ISO-million Emprise Corp. has gained stock control of all dog and horse tracks in Arizona except Turf Paradise and Western Racing, Inc. (Since the stories appeared, The Republic has contacted Ed Axton, secretary of the Kentucky Racing Commission, who said his commission was concerned that Em- prise was buying control of two Kentucky horse tracks. "We always have questions about Emprise," he stated.) Jenkins also alleged irregularities in the timing of races, now handled in the stewards' More about Hopi ouster Continued From Page 19 nue of Flags. There is a dance platform for the Hopi dancers and five life-size examples of Indian homes. Fitzwater said the village was placed at that site at the behest of the Arizona Indian Association. He said the association requested the site after meeting with fair officials to discuss the fate of the Indian Village, which they strongly supported. Solution to the Indian housing problem in the future, Fitzwater suggested, would be the erection of a permanent authentic village where the Indian dancers and exhibitors could be housed. He estimated such a village could be built for $10,000, compared to a cost of about $3,000 for the Indian house exhibit now flanking the Avenue of Flags. Approximately 12 Indian women who are exhibiting items in the Indian Arts and Crafts Building are living in the basement of that building. Fitzwilliam said the makeshift accommodations were authorized several years ago in lieu of letting the Indians fend for themselves. The Indian women sleep on cots and have lavatory facilities, but they lack hot water for bathing. i Some of the Indian women, as did the dancers, told a reporter for The Arizona Republic that they prefer to live at the fairground "close to their work." Said Naquayouma on that point: '"We would prefer to live here at the fairground so that we don't have to 'risk' ourselves traveling." room away from public view, and he asked that the commission require the Funks to install an electronic infield clock at all tracks. Commissioners showed increased interest when Jenkins alleged that owners and trainers must clear through Funks' racing director, Don Wootten, in order to obtain state licenses to run dogs. Goodman challenged Jenkins to prove that. Jenkins then called to the microphone his brother, Sam, president of the dog owners association. Sam Jenkins related that about two weeks ago, his Wife took a properly filed - out trainers license application to Wootten and was refused a permit to race. R. F. Kilpatrick, state steward at Phoenix, stood up and informed the hearing that the application was refused because it failed to meet a time deadline. Jenkins also asked the commission to stop two practices he said are occurring: racing a Grade 1 dog in a Grade 2 race, and changing entrants in a race after post positions are drawn. Cheifetz launched his short presentation by calling the Jenkins group "a dissident minority" among dog owners and presenting a petition by dog owner .Robert Thome disassociating himself and 25 others from Jenkins' presentation. Board member George Murphy later asked those in the audience who supported what Jenkins said to stand up. Some 40 of the 60 persons hi the room rose to their feet, including Rep. Leon Thompson, D-Maricopa. NO WEEKEND BURIALS CAPE TOWN, South Africa (AP) — Funerals can take place here on Mondays through Fridays. "It has been increasingly difficult to get gravediggers and undertakers' staff to work on weekends," said Secretary A. Wasserfall of the Association of Cape Town Funeral Directors.
