(AP Wirephoto) John Milner (28). Milner tagged him out in the Senate OKs appointment of controversial Robinson By CARL MILLIARD Associated Press Writer DENVER (AP) -- Goy. John Love's appointment of William Robinson of Denver to another term on the Colorado Wildlife Commission was approved 4-1 by the Senate Game, Fish and Parks Committee Thursday afternoon following a second hearing. Robinson's appointment will now go back to the full Senate for consideration. Two weeks ago, the Senate committee rejected Robinson's appointment but the Senate refused to approve the action and sent his name back to the committee for reconsideration. Robinson, a former commission chairman, was opposed by representatives of several organizations who criticized him for being instrumental in the enactment of a split big game season. But his supporters rallied behind him at hearings Tuesday and again Thursday, saying Robinson represented good game management and conservation. Among his severest critics was Gil Hunter, who represents the Colorado Wildlife Federation and who at one time was Colorado's game management director. Hunter said under the leadership of former director Harry Combs and Robinson, Colorado's game situation has "gone downhill." Hunter recalled how, in 1963, he had cautioned a western Colorado wildlife commissioner that a peak had been reached in lhe game population, and a decline would follow. Hunler said the decline did, in fact, follow. Hunter was lhe only opponent to appear Thursday to testify against Robinson's appointment. Appearing in support of Robinson was Carl Roth, a private citizen from Lakewood who said attacks on Robinson because of commission aclion are unfair. Carl Bush, a spokesman for the Rocky Mountain Sportsmen's Federation, said Robinson recommended the firing ol Harry Woodward, the director of the Colorado Wildlife Division, for his participation in a goose hunt at Greenwood Village outside Denver. Bush said Robinson is stand. ing in the way of Woodward's becoming a dictator over the commission. He said he found fault with some of Robinson's actions but said, in referring to his membership on the commission, "if one member is guilty--so too are the others." American Sportsman Club. He was equally critical, however, of Rep. Eldon Cooper, D-Thornton, who appeared Tuesday and accused Robinson of being "arrogant" because Robinson said he had no constituents to answer to. Cooper said flatly that Robinson had "gone to bed" with private organizations such as the American Sportsman Club and that such clubs are inlerested in game preservation but only for their own purposes. Baker suggested that Cooper was naive to believe a commissioner could bow to the wishes of all pressure groups. And he suggested Cooper might have suffered financial losses as a licensed guide and outfitter because he didn't get what he wanted from the commission. Robinson spoke briefly after the others gave their testimony and once again told the committee "if you want a rubberstamp commissioner, I am not your man." i Robinson said he opposes staff policies which "led to near-disaster through a lack of long-range planning and a complete unwillingness of our staff to consider the present and future public interest." Robinson said the architect of that "near-disaster" game policy several years ago was Gil HUnter, now retired.

High's division-pacing Bulldogs c h i n g m o u n d Thursday as Raul probably can't clinch the Welco Assn. North Division title until they win their two final games, but Thursday's big H-0 shutout over Roosevelt here was a major step toward that goal. With only two games left on the schedule (Windsor, Monday and Fort Lupton, Tuesday), University High has to either win both or look to second-place Highland to lose a game and fall back. The Bulldogs are now 9-3 in the Welco division standings, 94 overall. Highland, led by lefthander Alan Kinoshita, is now 6-3, after Wednesday's 5-3 win over Platte Valley. Roosevelt's fine hurler Herrera gave up 12 hits to the Bulldogs while Ken Sudduth pitched his finest game of the season, giving up only a single hit and only two walks. Sudduth was 1-2 for · the season going inlo lhe game and hadn't pitched 'an entire game yet. The senior Bulldog broke out of his early-season struggles Thursday though and struck out eight Rider batters to get the key victory. Roosevelt threatened only once. After a walk and an error put two men on base in the third inning, Dave Hernandez hit a ground ball single between short stop and third base as the ball took a bad hop. With the bases loaded and only one away, Sudduth struck out one batter and forced a ground out to end the threat. Four University High batters got two hits apiece -- Doug Hause, John Haefeli, Gary Rusch and Bert Thomas.
