BOWIE MEETING TO BEGIN TODAY Fine Program of Seven Well-Filled Races Provided for the Inaugural Days Sport. BOWIE, Md., November 13. A fine program of seven races will usher in the fall meeting of the Southern Maryland Agricultural Association at Prince George Park tomorrow. The fields for the opening days sport are large and well-balanced. In the Cheasapeake Purse, a aash of one mile for three-year-olds, such fast young horses as Drum-inond, Pastoral Swain, War Zone, Thistledon, Ballet Dancer II., Sundial II. and Siesta will furnish the competition in the principal race of the day. Drummond showed imnoved form during the recent meeting at Empire City and appears the logical favorite in tomorrows race. The Fads and Fancies purse for fillies and mares of all ages over the six and a half furlongs course has extracted a grand field of young racing matrons, of which W. Sheas grand looking daughter of Superman, Ormonda, on the strength of her four straight victories this fall in good company, seems to be the best. Ormonda has a big following here in Maryland and will be strongly supported. Judge Joseph A. Murphy arrived today from New Orleans, where he will return immediately at the conclusion of the Bowie meeting to officiate at both Jefferson Park and the Fair Grounds. All the other officials are here and every preparation for the inaugural days sport has been attended to. Stable room is at a premium and large fields in every race should be the rule. While the track is far from leiiig at its best, due to the recent heavy rains, it is in fair condition and a day or so of sunshine will "luake it faster than ever. The racing will begin each day at 1:30 p. in., so that there will be plenty of time to finish the daily program before darkness sets in.
