Starter William Snyder was notified today by William Dondas, who will officiate at Raceland as racing secretary, that Lester Dean, starter at Arlington Park at the coming meeting, would serve as starter during the first four days of the Raceland meeting, which conflicts with Fairmount Park, and requires Mr. Snyders presence here.
