Politicans who say they the know, tell us that Governor Hulett promised he would re,name h!m to the post again, but for reason or another hasn t done so as yet.. Others tell st Brother Ellmore, who has been busy keeping the - rs well fertilized all over the state, wants the job for Son-in-law and has placed the hot potato squarely in Hulett's lap.. While we do not know Mr. Ellmore's and have never met him, we can not enlarge on !ications as a member or chairman of the State Commission. We do know Joe Condry, who has a of racing background knowledge and seems to handle ob very ably as far as we have been able to learn.
