KENTUCKY HOME OF GAMBLING BOOKMAKERS RULED OUT OF OTHER CITIES HAVE FLOCKED TO LATONIA—RACE MEET TO LAST FOR THREE MONTHS. COVINGTON', Ky., Sept. 2 —Lato- Dia, the picturesque race track near this city, for years the pride of true lovers of horseflesh, where thorough breds were raced for sport rather than for profit, Ims been turned into t great gambling machine frequented for the most part by professional race track followers. The cosy club house, where in for mer years the elite of Kentucky and Cincinnati gathered to wati h the "sport of kings," is now deserted ex cept for an occasional gathering of Officials, horsemen and those Who are wringing every dollar possible Out of this racing plant. Latonla is a vast money maker lie cause professional horsemen bave been driven out of Missouri, Tennes see. Ohio, Indiana and Illinois by legislative enactments. For the first time In a quarter of a century rac ing has been stopped in Chicago and St. Louis. On the average 20 books are In the bettlrg ring every day. Each book will handle" about $5000 per day. This makes s total of $100,000 brought to the track every day by tin public. In I" days this em Hints to $1,000,00*, in ICO days to $10,000,- [GIVES MONEY TO THE CHILDREN BAli '• ORE, Md., Sept.

The other expenses, which are prin cipally the salary of the judges and Officials, who are usually directors, does not exceed an additional $700 per day. So the daily profits are about $2. r ioo. Therefore, the 100-day race meeting this year at Latonla should net the owners a clear profit of a quarter of a million. At Latonta women bettors are an important factor.
