(UP' Opposition 70 construction of the Puente* race track is lessening work is going ahead, and when the layout is completed it will be the ''most beautiful track in the world." says William P. Kyne, gen eral manager of Bay Meadows. Kyne says that many groups haw dropped their fight against build ing of the third major track in the Los Angeles area. "And they should too." he says. "Can you tell me of any person ■who has the right to, oppose any thing that would benefit war vet erans after what iltese prave men have done for us in this war?" MANNED BY VETERANS The Puente track, when com pleted. will be almost whollv man ned by returning veterans—and on top of that. Veterans’ Rehabilita tion funds will receive the cream of the profits. . Kyne. vitally interested in tin future of the veterans, has organ ized the Veterans Rehabilitation Foundation, and contributors to thi corporation will be Bay Meadows the proposed Portland Downs rac ing strip in Oregon, the Southeri California Jockey Club, operator.- of Puente, and the neJf Bay Mea dows airport.. Already Bay Meadows lias given approximately $3,000.00: from racing receipts to the organ ization. Puente, in Kyne’s opinion. • will be the finest and most lavish race track in the world when com pleted. An architect from Hinnist In dustries in New Orleans has drawn designs for a futuristic grandstand that will seat 17,000 fans. There will be other facilities available , • handle crowds up to 100,000. Outside of the ultra-modern de : sign of the grandstand, its out -1 standing feature is the fact that it j is built in length rather than depth ! and even the bettor in the back ' row is fairly closte to the rail. FIREPROOF BARN’S On top of all this, the barns at 1 the track to house the hundreds of racing thoroughbreds will be com pletely fireproof. "And." says Mr. Kyne. “you can quote me on this: I think that' state legislatures should pass laws prohioiting the construction of any barns in the future that are not fireproof." It is Kyne’s belief that racing should devote a big share of its profits to war veterans' rehabilita tion —and to that end he has stated he will not be connected with any organization that does not do some thing for the returning veterans. That is why he is rooting for the Puente track. Gov. Frank J. Lausche of Ohio was a professional baseball player in his youth: finally decided in fa vor of law. **•».? v«» *■' *« ’■ wBIA 1 jgfl I ' He's Careful Because He Cares «Ever stop to think why your automobile mechanic insists on doing his work carefully?

Ipcome Of 150 Billions WASHINGTON. Aug. 31. <UP> The United States must achieve an. annual national income of $l5O,- ; 000.000.000 to meet its goal of full . employment. Secretary of Treasury 1 Fred M. Vinson saia rriaay. He Id a senate banking commit- ‘ tee hearir. : ,-n the administration's full employment bill that the task of providing jobs lor all who want to work can be accomplished through fr- e enterprise "if we face it frankly." Vinson supported the pending full employment legislation but cau tioned against underestimating the difficulty of postwar employment problems. "It means a national income of $150,000,000,000 as compared with 578.000.000.000 in 1940." he said. "It means assuring jobs fot approxi-’ mutely 60.000.000 people as com pared with 47.000.000 in 1940." Purchasing power must be boost • d enough to increase national pur chasing, power by*jo per cent. Vin son said, and construction and in vestment must be pushed 100 per cent above pre-war levels. ■■ '''■" a«=n» n nr I Standard of Excellence R & F service on domestic or common :.d refrigeration, and R & F radio service set the highest standard of excelence.
