JOCKEY PARKE DOING WELL | Condition of Noted Rider Satisfactory After Operation for Attack of Appendicitis. CINCINNATI, O.. June 4.— The condition of jockey Ivan Parke, stricken suddenly with an attack of appendicitis Tuesday after dismounting from Comixa in the third race at Latonia, was considered satisfactory late today by his attending physician, Dr. J. B. Miller. The danger period, it was stated by hospital authorities, would not pass until late Friday afternoon. However, it is the opinion ! of Dr. Miller that the lad will come out of| ■ his operation in splendid condition, and, it-anything, in better health. I I Parke vomited several times during the night. This resulted from the ether admin- ] I istered prior to the operation. He rested i : quietly during the day, and excepting M. Goldblatt, Robert Bowers, who makes his engagements, and immediate friends, visitors were not permitted to disturb him. During the forenoon Parke inquired of Bowers as to whether or not Flyatit and • I Triumph, which he was to ride before being stricken, had won. When Bowers replied in the affirmative he said : "Thats good, 1 was pulling that both would win." Parke was rushed to the Good Samaritan Hospital without his riding clothes being removed.
