In other Texas League games Tuesday night. El Paso edged Shreveport, 6-4, Jackson defeated Midland, 7-4, and Arkansas whipped San Antonio, 7-3. The Wranglers took a 4-3 lead into the ninth inning, but Tulsa's Dan Peltier hit a bases-loaded grounder that appeared to clear the infield for a single. Second baseman Kelly went into right field, snared the grounder and threw out Peltier to preserve the victory. Wichita jumped out early after Mike Humphries hit an run- scoring single. Guillermo Velasquez hit his ninth home run of the season in the sixth to add two. Tulsa tied the game a half- inning later.

(AP) Any expansion of the 10-member Southeastern Conference is too serious to be done willy-nilly, said the SEC commissioner, although discussions are under way with some schools. Roy Kramer said that no meeting has been set for a vote on admitting additional members, although the SEC is exchanging information with schools such as Arkansas of the Southwest Conference and Florida State, an independent. "These are serious decisions and they're not going to be made overnight," Kramer said. "If it doesn't happen by the start of football season, that doesn't mean discussions are not continuing." Athletic Director Frank Broyles of Arkansas recently said the possibility is strong that the school will remain in the SWC, which also is considering expansion. Florida State Athletic Director Bob Coin said an expanded Metro Conference, which would add football as a league sport, "sounds like a great concept," but that "it would be a mistake to put a timetable on us. "We only heard 30 days ago fronvthe'SEC. You don't 30 years of athletic history in 30 days." FSU President Bernard Sliger has visited Louisiana State, where he worked for 19 years, and spoken with officials there about the SEC. Coin, however, said the SEC has yet to tell Florida State want and we haven't said we're ready to give up our bachelorhood. I haven't seen too many successful marriages by shotgun." Alabama Athletic Director Hootie Ingram spent eight years as the athletic director at Florida State, which is a football independent but a member of the Metro Conference in other sports. "It very definitely would be a plus for Florida State to join the SEC and for the SEC to get Florida State," Ingram said. "I think from my experience that any independent school in this day and time would welcome the opportunity to get into a solid organization. You've got a base of consistency to operate on." Current and potential Metro Conference schools are to meet this week to discuss a 16-team football league and a 12-team all- sports league. Miami, East Carolina. Rutgers, Pitt, Syracuse, West Virginia, Boston College and Temple have been invited to join the eight-team Metro. "That Metro group has been meeting since 1981," Ingram said. "They may be more serious about it now because there has been some movement with Penn State going to the Big Ten and the SEC looking into expansion." Ingram said a league in which all members play all sports works much better than a league in which some schools are members in only certain sports. Although the Florffla State are only exchanging information now. Coin said they should know "in the next 30 days or so whether we're getting closer or further apart."
