JOCKEY LYNE ON RACING ABROAD NEW YORK, N. Y., January 6. Lucien Lyne, who has just returned to this country from France, is not optimistic over the outlook for racing on a large scale in that country during the coming season. "I am afraid there will be no racing on a big scale in France this year," said Lyne. "Premier Clemenceaii has declared that the sport must not be resumed on the old basis until after the demobilization of the French troops, which would seem to mean that it will be another season before the sport can be expected to be as it was before the war." Lyne is not particularly cheerful in his reports of the outlook for the sport in Spain. He thinks there will be a big year in 1919, but that when the sport lias been fully established in the "other .European countires there will be a falling off of interest among the Spaniards. Ho will return in February and will continue to ride for the, King of Spain throughout this year.
