TURN IN TIDE FOR SPORT OF RACING The action of the upper house of the Arkansas legislature yesterday in killing the drastic Doyle bill, aimed at the suppression of racing in Hot Springs, was pleasing news to all interested in the future of racing and the thoroughbred horse. It seems to indicate a change in sentiment in favor of one of the greatest of outdoor sports and particularly so in regard to the importance of the thoroughbred horse as a national asset in the production and improvement of the military horse needs of the future. It is now presumed that the management of Oaklawu Park at Hot Hprings will soon complete its plans and announce dates for a spring meeting to follow soon after the cloue of racing hi New Orleans.
