Fink Issues Pamphlet BELMONT PARK, Elmont, L. I., N. Y., June 4.— Jule Fink, former owner, who was denied an owners license by the stewards of The Jockey Club, which action was upheld on his appeal to a joint board consisting of three members of the state racing commission and two stewards of The Jockey Club, today made public a statement which he had forwarded to Senator Arthur H. Wicks, chairman of the Joint Legislative Committee now making a survey of racing in this state. The statement was in the form of a printed pamphlet of some 14 pages. Fink charges that the commission is functioning in "complete evasion and nullification" of the decision of the state Court of Appeals, which stripped The Jockey Club of certain of its powers and which was followed by enactment of a bill transferring them to the commission. Fink claims the rules of racing promulgated by the commission restored certain authority to The Jockey Club.
