Patrolmen Prevent Motorists From Parking Near Belmont ELMONT, L. I., N. Y., June 14.— The parking situation in the vicinity of Belmont Park remained unchanged today. Patrolmen are stationed in considerable numbers on all the approaches to the Westchester Racing Association track from the Queens County side and are preventing cars from turning off into the side streets, which formerly were used for parking. A majority of motorists are continuing past the track v along Hempstead Boulevard and parking in Elmont and Franklin Square. Yesterdays report that motorists were being prevented from entering Nassau County arose from the fact that some drivers who persisted in trying to enter the banned side streets were halted and questioned as to their business in those streets. When refused entry to park, some motorists turned back to Jamaica. An unconfirmed report that the parking lots inside the Belmont Park property would be opened on June 21, coincident with an increase in the gas allotment, was current at the track today. No official statement was forthcoming.
