I DAYTON INJUNCTION I MADE PERMANENT ♦ I DAYTON, Ohio, June 27.— All legal barriers which stood in the way of the race meeting at the Dayton Fair Grounds were removed today in Columbus when Judge Dana Reynolds, of the Franklin County Common Pleas Court sustained the Dayton Jockey Club in its injunction proceedings against the Ohio State Racing Commission. In his ruling Judge Reynolds granted the jockey club a permanent restraining order and thus enjoined the racing commission from any further interference with either the meeting or officials. The order also prevents city and counly authorities from further attempting to close the gates. Earlier in the day it was indicated that If the Columbus court did not reach a decision before the first race the meeting here would have been declared off. As it is the session will run until Saturday. The action in Columbus, it is believed, practically nullifies the charges against Horace Baggott, secretary of the Dayton Jockey Club, who was arrested before the third race here Wednesday. He was charged with conducting a race meeting without a permit and released on his own recognizance. His hearing is set for next week.
