H. McCreery NEW YORK. N. Y., June 5.— At a meet- ing of the Horsemens Benevolent and Protective Association held last night at the Whitman Hotel in Jamaica, the fol- ! lowing were elected officers for the New York division: W. O. Hicks, vice-president: Walter C. Burrows, alternative vice-presi- dent; committeemen: Sol Rutchick. Edward Mulrennan. John B. Theall. Isadore Bieber, Hirsch Jacobs. James Craf. Jules Wessler. Hugh Dufford, Walter Kelly. W. B. Mitchell, and T. J. Carroll. Maj. Thomas H. McCreery. president of the HBPA. announced that Jack Gold-15 berg, attorney, acting for the association. had secured a decision from the Comptroller of the City of New York relative to the compensation use tax imposed in April. 1944. on all race horses racing within the New York City limits. The de-Ing clsion is that horses owned by nonresidents of the City of New York are not liable for this tax and refunds for the tax paid during the year of 1944 can be se-llt cured by application to the HBPA head-!" quarters at Belmont Park. Attention was brought before the committee that The Jockey Club rules number 204 and 205 had been violated in numer- cases during the past year. It was yous resolved that Major McCreery bring this to the attention of the governing bodies of racing. These rules pertain to the luring of employees to leae one stable for another at increased salary. It was also brought to the attention of the committee that there is no space in the grandstand allotted to the use of owners and trainers and many times they are unable to see their horses race due to the increase in attendance on the race course. This matter will also be brought to the attention of the governing bodies of racing.
