New Identification System To Turf Club at Hollywood HOLLYWOOD PARK, Inglewood, Calif. May 22. — Hollywood Park, home of innovations, has added another one this year with general manager J. * Mackenzie installing a new foolproof system of identification to tighten up admittance to the turf club at the Inglewood Track. It is the in- visible ink stamp — never before used at any race track — which takes the place of and entirely eliminates the use of a pass-out check. The person who wishes to leave the turf club precincts temporarily has the back of his hand stamped as he leaves the club but on returning the ink is visible only when placed under a "black" light installed in ornamental posts at the various doorways into the club. The invisible ink used for the plan has been thoroughly tested and has been found entirely harmless to skin or flesh and it can cause no embarrassment by smearing clothing or gloves. Manager J. A. Beaman of the Turf Club is highly elated over the success of the plan and declared members, too, are enthusiastically in favor of its use after watching it in operation on the opening day of the current 55 -day meeting. Beaman says it overcomes all difficulties that resulted from the former practice of transfers of turf club passout checks and their loss.
