I Ohio Commission to Hold Hearing on Rule Changes j Most of Proposals Affect System At County and Independent Fairs j COLUMBUS. Ohio, May 7. — The Ohio1 1 State Racing Commission has scheduled a public hearing on proposed changes in the Ohio rules of racing for 11 a.m. EST j I Tuesday, May 27, in the State Office Building. S. Front St. Most of the proposed changes affect the system of wagering at county and independent fairs; which will begin in July. The commission is hopeful of having the changes, if they are adopted, prevailing at that time. One suggested change would obligate mutuel department managers to have in the hands of the commission inspector and the judges a complete listing of the win, place and show pools on the entries in each race immediately upon the conclusion of wagering on the race and before the field is dispatched by the starter. The commission also is considering a return to the sale of pre-printed mutuel tickets. Two years ago. the state board enforced a rule that all wagering except the Daily Double must be via automatic "tote" while last year, all wagering, including the Daily Double, was via the robot. Most fairs abandoned the Daily Double in 1956, claiming the cost of leasing Daily Double machines made this type of wagering prohibitive.
