! | ! HORSE ASSOCIATION MEETS Charles E. Marvin Engaged for Expansion Work in the East — Seek Revocation of Rule 123. At the meeting of the Thoroughbred Horse Association, held in Cincinnati last Friday, at which col. E. R. Bradley presided, Charles E. Marvin of Paynes Depot, Ky., was introduced to the members present and announcement made that he had been engaged for a limited time to do special work in matters of expanding the organization. When Mr. Marvin has finished his work at Latonia he will go to New York to hold meetings of the horsemen in the eastern field and to take into the organization many men who now are not members for the reason, primarily, that they have not been solicited. From New York Mr. Marvin will go to Canada. The directors of the Thoroughbred Horse Association, at a recent meeting, instructed secretary Cromwell to seek the revocation of Rule 123 of the Kentucky Rules of Racing, under which an owner, having entered two horses in a purse race, is compelled to scratch both if he should desire to start only one. The matter was discussed with judge Charles F. Price, who has been the chairman of the rules committee by appointment of the State Racing Commission, and he stated that the racing association would have no objection to the revocation of the rule or to a new rule permitting an owner to declare out one and start the other of two entries in a purse race. It was announced at the meeting Friday night that the change will be requested of the State Racing Commission when it meets at Latonia this month.
