NASHVILLE WANTS RACING Joseph A. Murphy yesterday received a letter from J. W. Russwurm, manager of the State Fair of Tennessee, at Nashville, asking his co-operation in the revival of racing at Nashville. Mr. Russwurm, who was a prominent figure in thoroughbred racing during the days of running races in Tennessee, wrote that the State Fair was becoming larger and more expensive each year and that thoroughbred racing was becoming almost an absolute necessity for it. He stated that local public opinion was strongly in favor of the revival of the sport. Judge Murphy answered the letter, offering his services in the arranging of a test case to determine whether racing can be successfully conducted under the present statutes, and will probably make a trip to Nashville after the New Orleans meetings to give his personal aid to Mr. Russwurm in the work.
