NATHANSON GOES TO OAKLAND. Martin Nathanson, secretary of the Harlem Jockey Club, and one of the stewards of the Western Jockey Club, has accepted an offer made to him by President Thomas II. Williams, when the latter was In the city last week, to take an official position with the New California Jockey Club during lis next meeting at Oakland. Mr. Nathanson expects to learn In a day or two just what his new duties will be at Oakland. Shortly" after Nates return from New Orleans last spring he was tendered the position of racing secretary and handi-capper by the Los Angeles Jockey Club, but the abandoning of Ascot Park as a racing plant released him from this engagement. Mr. Nathanson says he hardly expects its renewal from the New Los Angeles Jockey Club, which Is building a plant at Arcadia, and he would not be free to accept it if they did tender him the post with the new organisation.
