BOWIE TO HAVE ATTRACTIVE PROGRAM BALTIMORE, Md., November 4. The program book of the Southern Maryland Agricultural Association of the first eight days of the November meeting at Bowie track, which will follow the one now going on at Pimlico, and finish out the month, provides for the distribution among horsemen a matter of ,500 to ,500 a day. No purse will have a smaller value in added money than ,000." There will be a handicap of ,500 value every afternoon, and on some days si race of ,000 to ,500. The long distance runner and the sprinter are splendidly provided for by secretary Joseph McLennan, who knows well how to make racing interesting. Bowie sprinters will be especially good because the seven-eighths backstretch extension enables the Southern Maryland Agricultural Association to advertise and give sprints of six and a half furlongs and seven-eighths of a mile as well as the conventional dashes of five and a half furlongs and three-quarters of a mile. It will not be a question this fall of getting enough good horses to make the Bowie meeting a go. It will be a question of finding stabling for the good horses that will be wanting to race here. Already superintendent Richard Pending has had to put up the bars against yearlings. Because of the general scarcity of stalls, Peudiug will not be able to care for any horses that are not of racing age, i ,
