DAYTON, Ohio, June 26.— After a lay-off of two days the Dayton Jockey Club resumed its race meeting at the Dayton Fair Grounds this afternoon. The program was conducted under the protection of an injunction granted local promoters against the i Ohio State Racing Commission, which Tues- -day suspended the license under which the current meeting was operating. The injunction was granted in the Common Pleas Court in Columbus late Tuesday. John A. Bricker, Ohio attorney general, ; announced today in Columbus that the li- i cense of the jockey club had been suspended and that the injunction was without effect. -Ir said the action was invalid in that the injunction papers naa not been served until . after the racing commission bad handed down its suspension order. Sheriff Phil Kloos of Montgomery County ; was quoted today in local newspapers as j saying that he wolud stop todays program ; unless he received word from the attorney general advising against such action, j but no attempt was made to interfere with | the running of the first race nor were any | of the officials of the Dayton Jockey Club j arrested. Judge Roland Baggott and Horace Bag- j gott, directors of the jockey club made them- selves conspicuous, apparently expecting ar- i rest, and when no effort was made to stop the first race, it was assumed here that the i ; ] remainder of the meeting would proceed ! without further interruption. ! , DAYTON, Ohio, June 26.— All racing offi- | ] cials were assured by members of the State [ j Racing Commission that no action would be I i ] taken against them for officiating at the j j meeting whose status at this time is not I quite clear. i A crowd estimated at 3,000 persons, many of them here out of curiosity, were in at- , tendance. I j Racing officials had some difficulty get- I j ting todays program together, a number of j i ] horses and jockeys already having embarked ] for other points under the impression that : i the meeting here definitely was at an end. ] It was said, however, a sufficient number of I I j horses still are on the grounds to conduct j the remaining days of the current session, I I -, which is to end Saturday. Local newspapers still maintained a hos- , tile attitude toward the meeting, but pa- j trons here cheered the *bugle calling the | first race to the post. — — , »
