Ohio Governor Vetoes Bill To Make Up for Lost Days COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 20. — Gov. Frank J. Lausche has vetoed a bill that would permit Ohio race tracks to make up for days lost because of rainy or inclement weather. The measure was backed solely by harness race interests as the states running race tracks operate on a "rain or shine" basis. Several years ago, the State Racing Commission asked the attorney-generals office for a ruling on a possible extension of a race meeting to permit the meeting to make up days lost because of weather conditions. The ruling received from the attorney -general at that time was that a track may operate only during the period of dates assigned or granted to it, regardless of the number of days of idleness because of inclement weather.
