PLANT CLOSED FRIDAY Attempt to Stage Program Fails With Leaving of Trainers. a short period of operation Marked by legal and finannial diffi culties, the Indiana Kennel Club, Lrti.. dog track on Allisnnville road, definitely passed out of existence to day Promoters and Frank Young, trus tee, today announced that they ere through.” The blow fell Friday night when eCorts were made to open the track, but it was learned that owners of the dogs had taken them and left the city. “As far as T was concerned the track was closed Wednesday night,” Young said. In The Times I read that it was operated Thursday night. 1 knew nothing about it. and I don't know what hapepned.” Persons at the track Thursday right, saw “bookies" openly taking bets on the races. Employes Demand Pay For two weeks promoters of the track hare struggled to keep their organization together in the face of adverse court rulings that blew up the chief attraction—the “invest ment system" of betting. f • Through the fog and rain Friday night, the lights of the track shone. A few figures moved in the grand stand. but there was no cheering, as on nights gone by. when the grey hounds came bounding around the track. The only noise was the insistent demands o£ track employes and . creditors: “We wi-ht our money.” Four deputy sheriffs assigned to the track reporttd that after long arguments, the pleaders and the debtors finally turned off the lights and called it. the end. First, indication that the track would be closed came Thursday night to spectators. This was fol lowed by an employe filing a suit for receivership in superior court four Friday. Hearing date for the case has not been set. . “Mv only interest in the track was as a trustee for creditors,” Young declared today. “I had an idea of making a kind of resort out of it, with a dance floor and a prominent orchestra, but I'm a lumberman, not a promoter. When the crowds failed. I couldn't carry the project on. I/Ost Legal Struggles “Police and deputy sheriffs han dled the whole case very well, and the judges could do nothin? but refuse the injunction to allow in vestment betting. -It would be a shame to tear down such a beautiful ptamt, but it will be sold in the near fbture. or I'll re move the materids.” The Kennel Cltoh was incorpor ated in May and less than sixty days ago. the doors were opened, under protection from police inter ference by a temporary restraining order issued by Superior Judge James M. Leathers, the investment booths were lined with patrons while police and deputy sheriffs stood by watching persons placing money on the dogs and receiving their win nings. —-• The next day Prosecutor Judson L. Stark went before Leathers and argued against the order, asserting that “no arrests could have been made under the order, even if mur der had been committed.” Following several days .of legal jousting. Leathers finally granted a venue change for the caae to the Hancock circuit court. Judge Arthur C. Van Duyn refused to reinstate the first court order and place a tempo rary injunction against police and Sheriff George L. Winkler, last Saturday.

Such a wonderful letter— won't you write me more and more of them?

Best ever dear. Write soon if I can come up.” Cute Hotel Keeper's Wife Another tells how the doctor drove his car ninety miles in four hours and was worn out the next day. It says: “I thought of you on way. recall ing other trip. From there on I cussed the road, the machine and everything else.” “Tried little golf this afternoon with the hotel keeper, his wife and friend. ‘The wife was cute—blue white up and down .stripe dress much like vours—no sleeves—just big opening way down—short at bottom—hose* roll below knees—six-inch tear in skirt up one side. “She ruined my game—l actually topped half my shots—no more play in such company any more. “Enclosing 10 this time—started here with 25 but got caught for donation to chusch affair and on some flowers for neighbor who just died.

I think, dear. It is just that lonesome feeling that comes. You know not what to do. where to go and you don't fell like doing any thing and can't. Well, that is me, all over ... One letter which discussed a tri] to Cleveland, was signed “Here's an earthquake tremor squeeze—Mabel.” The defense of Dr. Snook swung into its final phases today. Snook completed his own testi mony Friday afternoon. He had been on the witness stand for more than sixteen hours and had been carried twice over every detail of three years of intimacy with Miss Hix. In the closing hour of Friday's session the defense struck its major blow at the state's claim of pre mediation by presenting the testi mony' of four pathologists of high reputation that Miss Hix did not necessarily die from the severing of her jugular vein—the act which the state claims contained the element of premediation. There remains considerable expert testimony. Alienists are under sub pena and are expected to testify that the former Ohio State univer sity professor mentally was unbal anced.

BY MABEL WALKER WILLEBRANDT (Copyright, 1929. by Current News Feat ures. All rights for publication reserved throughout th* world.) Throughout the country the opinion is prevalent that “it is easy enough to dry up the country and the small towns, but you never will succeed in drying up the big cities.” In a measure, this belief has some foundation in fact. The great bulk of the liquoV traffic, as everyone knows, is in the larger cities. I often hav been asked “How wet is the coun try under prohibition? ’ That amount of liquor is being sold; how many bootleggers are there in the business ?” These questions can not be answered exactly, but we know that bootlegging is certainly not one of our “infant industries” in need of care and protection. Prot ction it does have, but that protection is from the law and not from “low wage foreign competition.” The evidence that bootleg ging, large and small, is in a flourishing condition is definite and certain. Remus, the Chicago lawyer, who became one of the most extensive and successful masters of bootlegging, ac cording to a sworn statement, was worth prior to entering upon his adventures in law lessness, about SB,OOO. After only thirteen months of illegal liquor operations, he was worth more than $3,000,000, accord ing to a sworn statement he gave to a bonding company. This amount of money, of course, could not h z~z been made so quickly in anything but the larger mefcroplitan centers.

Five dogs and eleven cats in & small house at 3145 North Illinois street, today barked and meowed a welcome as their mistress. Mrs. Su zanne Krause, returned after a five days’ hunger strike in county jail. Convicted of keeping dogs without a license and harboring a public nuisance, Mrs. Krause last Monday elected to “lay out” fines and court costs of $55. From the time she was locked up she refused food, protesting that she was unjustly accused. Today Mrs. W. H. Roberts. 3051 North Illinois street, and Dr. Eliza beth Conger, city dog pound super intendent, 1603 Knowland avenue, signed a SSOO bond for an appeal to criminal court. When the matron of the jail told her that she was free, Mrs. Krause refused to believe her. Dr. Conger took her from her cell-bed, dressed her, and waited as she read the bond carefully before affixing her signa ture. Then Mrs. Roberts and Dr. Con ger took her to her home in a taxi. The big whisky markets are in the cities. The number of other millionaires created by violation of the prohibi tion law is amazing. In one case, for instance, which involved six bootleggers, we found that in three years they had evaded paying taxes and had built up such fortunes of (Tarn to Page 18) CRUSH PRISON REVOLT Bv United Press BUENOS AIRES.
