TEST TOTALIZATOR SYSTEM Mutuel Clerks at Hialeah Park to Undergo Examination for Efficiency Next Week. MIAMI, Fla., Jan. 8. Mortimer Mahoney, director of mutuels at Hialeah Park, will begin schooling his staff of clerks in the newly installed Australian totalizator system Saturday. The issuers, which print and flip out the tickets at the selling wickets, will be operated, for several hours. They will not be connected with the main registering units, but will be utilized for the purpose of breaking in and testing the operatives for adaptability and efficiency. On Monday and Tuesday the full staff will school six hours each day with the complete mechanism operating. This will provide an exhaustive and final test of both the tote and the men assigned to operate the issuers. The training periods will . be spaced in actual racing time, with peak periods before post time being created by an impromptu set of purchasers drafted from the cashiers ranks. "We will select the men who prove themselves most adaptable and efficient in the new system," declared Mr. Mahoney. "These tests will not only place the mechanism of the tote in perfect working order, but will serve as an examination for the clerks."
