California Bill to Permit 70 Days More Sport Vetoed SACRAMENTO, Calif., May 6,— Gov. Earl Warren yesterday vetoed a bill passed at the recent special session of the legislature which would, in effect, have permitted 70 additional racing days in California. The governor declared that he had been advised by the Attorney Generals office that the measure was outside the scope of the special session. The measure, introduced by assembly speaker Sam L. Collins, would have deleted the word "only" from that portion of the horse racing act which reads: "In addition to the racing days-which may be allowed under other sections of this chapter, the board may allow not to exceed a total of 70 days for harness racing only."
