COMMISSION GAINS ENDS IN MARYLAND The Maryland Racing Commission has apparently won its fight in the endeavor to control racing in Mary land. The Jockey Club, facing a di rect threat from the commission that no license would be issued for Pim lico, hastily hauled down the flag yes terday and announced that H.. Guy Bedwell would be recognised as agent for Comdr. J. K. L. Ross. Charles l0. Mc-Lane, president of the Jockey Club. announced that the Ross entries had been filed with the Pim lico authorities, and that a letter to this effect had been sent to the corn mison. The fact that the Jockey Club has accepted Bedwell as the Roes agent is expected to end the controversy which cropped up relative to the con trolling of entries by the racing com mission and the Jockey Club. In the face of affidavit. which stated that the Jockey Club was a private corporation and could recog nize or refuse agents at its pleasure, the announcement of the .Jockey Club president that Bedwell had been ac cepted appears to end the fight for con trol.
