Appeal California Turf Ruling to High Court LOS ANGELES, Calif., April 29.— In a petition filed by the office of the Attorney General of California, the state Supreme Court yesterday was asked to overrule the recent decision of the District Court of Appeal holding that certain provisions of the 1941 horse racing act are unconstitutional. A rehearing of the case was requested on the grounds that the race track license regulations embodied in the act are fair and adequate and that sufficient standards are set up to guide the horse racing board in the issuance of licenses. Pending determination of the appeal, continuation of legalized racing in California has been assured by the governors signing of a stand-by bill recently passed by the legislature which would automatically restore the provisions of earlier legislation should the 1941 law be outlawed by the highest court.
