NEW RACING COMMISSION CODE -- The West Virginia State Racing Commission has once again adopted a new conflict of interest code which means the cutting off of a lot of free passes to not only the race track, but to dinners and other privileges which in the past the track has provided free to the commission and its staff. In the past it has been customary for the Com- mission members to have up to 600 free passes which they most often passed along to their friends and state lawmakers. And it has often been the practice that track stewards, security officers, veterinarians, licensed clerks and auditors assigned to race tracks to get free food and other track courtesies. We commend the racing commission for their most recent action in this respect, and we only hope this new practice remains in effect for a longer period of time than it has in the past. We can recall when other racing commissions have taken the same action, but never enforced the policy. youngsters into competition for trophies, an appearance on national television and an op- portunity to have their names inscribed on the PP&K plaque at the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
