approve the unanimous decision of the
appellate division of the supreme court,
which in effect legalizes oral betting',
the racing associations in this State
will mark tirde. At"the meeting of the
Jockey Club yesterday the situation
was thoroughly canvassed. It was de
cided that until Governor Sulzer names
his new racing commission and the sit
uation Is cleared up by the expected
statement from him outlining his views
on racing, it would be well for the
Jockey Club not to take action. As a
matter of fact. It is not up to the Jock
ey Club to say whether or not there is
to be racing In the State. That is for
the track owners to decide. Of course,

Yt the Braves have this dope in their favor. Another Boston club
finished last seven or eight years ago and today is wearing the crown of
the game. And the man in charge of the Braves handled another tail-end

Slowing Up or Resting.
"I have noticed." writes in a reader, "that Hans Wagner, once a won
derful baserunner, has not stolen nearly the same number of bases the last
few seasons. Is this-because he is slowing up, or merely saving himself
to take no extra chances for the few years he has left?" ,
You might not think It after seeing him play, but it is just as well -to
remember that Hans Is no longer a stripling recruit, just-breaking In.
When he celebrates his next birthday he will be in the 40's, and at forty-one
is not inclined to become overly frisky through the exuberance of youth.
Wagner will be a great ball player as long as his right arm and his legs
stay with him. Watch him throw and the motion is the easiest and
the simplest on the field. There Is no essence of strain to his peg across the
fields When there's a base to be stolen dn Hime oCneed the-Dutchman
isn't far away. But he's not crowding in chances to lear loose an ankle or
crack a knee at the time of life when ankles and knees begin to grow
brittle. If he is slowing up when speed is needed the change is still too
faint and dim to be lamped by the meager candlepower of the human orb.

Griff, in his statement that Walter Johnson has never yet come through
with his full speed, tells us that If the showdown ever comes, where some
unbeatable pitching Ib needed for a short stretch to win the flag, Johnson
will furnish more smoke than a batsman has ever faced at the plate.
It Isn't likely that the Senatorial -wonder has ever cut in with tnis, nis

begin to manufacture 22-inch armor plate catching gloves. If Johnson tacks
on much more speed than we have seen him show here and there, the
