SOUTHWEST OtJTDOORS By Frahk Adams and Red Kohnke ^Reformed' Bo Belinsky Pitches 2nd Win 4-1 AMERICAN LEAQUE BOX SCORES ab r h bl WELL, THE HONEYMOON is OVER, it lasted exactly 14 dtiys. . . John J. Jl'icKeilhen, Governor of Louisiana, Tuesday exercised hik executive authority to hand Louisiana sportsmen another setback in their battle for an efficient and decent vHldlife program. The eovdrnor appointed Joe D. Hair Jr. as Director of the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission. The action came lit Tuesday's meeting of the commission in New Orleansl Hair replaces L. D. Young Jr., who has served two terms in the post and earned the respect of knowledgeable people in the wildlife field in all parts of the There wlis an ironic touch to the timing of the change. In a message to legislators Tuesday McKeithen warned that there are few state jobs available to hand out to political friends. When it came to his own political friend, holvever. the governor created a job by firing a man of proten capability. The action may provide the legislature with some sort of moral guidance. In making his move, the governor showed utter disregard for the express wishes of the state's sportsmen. The Louisiana Wildlife Federation, which represents the hunters and fishermen of the state, adopted a resolution at its March convention asking that Young be retained in view of his excellent record in the post. * * * ACCORDING TO NEW ORLEANS press sources, Hair has the following qualifications for directing the state's wildlifil; program: _ He is the operator of a Baton Rouge flying service. During the rJecent gubernatorial campaign he often served as pilctt on McKeithen's campaign trips and is described as a: close political associate of the governor. He describes himself as an "active sportsman," but has never belonged to any organized sporting or conservation group. It appears from this viewpoint that his chief qualification is his political affiliation with the governor, an attribute that doesn't seem likely to benefit the wildlife program. * * * UNDER TiHE PROVISIONS of the constitutional amendment which established the Commission, "The Commission shall elect a Director of the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission." There is nothing in the law which provides for delegating such action to the uovernor. That is what happened Tuesday, although members of the Commission probably would be quick to disclaim such action. The Commission, after completing its business, went into recess to await a telephone call from the governor, j After the call was received, the meeting was reconvened, j Ray Whatley. Commission member from Alexandria, offered a motion to appoint Hair as director. John E. Kyle, of Berwick, seconded the motion and John Paul | Grain, of Grand Chenier, and H. B. Fairchild, of Sun- ! shine voted with Whatley and Kyle to fire Young and hire Hair. Chairman A. J. Buquet, of Houma, and member James J. Frey, of Lafayette, said they would not oppose Hair's appointment but refused to vote to fire Young. | The seventh spot on the commission was vacated when Richard L. Fleming's term expired with that of Gov. Jimmie Davis. He has not been replaced by McKeithen. Hair, who just happened to be present when the commission m»de the momentous decision, promptly \ took the oath from commission attorney Ellis Erwin. Whatley then was named chairman, replacing Buquet, and Kyle was named vice-chairman, replacing Frey. The 4-2 vote was surprising since at least one member who voted to fire Young had pledged to fight, even under threat of being dismissed himself, to avoid giving , the governor control of the commission. * » * DURING THE CAMPAIGN, McKeithen pledged to do everything in his power to help the state's wildlife program continue its growth. He has be;^un implementing that pledge by firing the man who probably lias had more to cjo than anyone else with achieving the considerable progress to date. Anyone familiar with the past history of Louisiana politics" can meike a fairly accurate prediction of what the future holdg, Commission activities will proceed at a bare crawl, j since most employes will be more concerned with' whether they will keep their jobs than with the program itself. After'all, if the director can be fired, so can any- else, and few people are going to worry about the program in the faqe of potential unemployment. Although most employes are under Civil Service, an adept politician always is able to get rid of those he does not favor. There is a good possibility that Buquet and Frey will not last too long. Having gone on record as refusing to follow the administration line to the letter, they must be viewed with distrust by a political faction that demands unquestioning loyalty regardless of the public good. The respect! that Louisiana's program under Young has drawn nationally will be suspended wh'ile observers watch to see how the program fares now. * * * CLOSER TO HOME, Louisiana sportsmen will breathe another sigh and resign themselves to another defeat in a long, seldom successful fight for efficient wildlife administration. Once more they have learned that a governor's promises are meaningless. In this case, they also have learned that a Commission which they believed to be strong enough to fight for honesty and right is not so strong, after all. More than anything, they have had a bitter lesson reaffirmed: Thef welfare of the public, including unborn generations, is less important to Louisiana than political payoffs. Some optimists will point out that McKeithen, unlike Earl Lori? and Jimmie Davis, has not booted out ; the commission itself. McKeithen, however, has hinted j that he plans toi oust some members of state boards and the commission could well be on the list, particularly ; since firing the members would open up several more I jobs for the governor's political pals. | Even if the commission remains intact, however, i sportsmen will pave little solace because it now is ap- j parent that the ((ommission will do exactly as McKeithen j tells it to, no more and no less. This, in effect, means i that a program which trulv is based on the welfare of j the sportsman sijill is a distant dre?m. * * » SPORTSME^ HOWEVER- ARE A funny breed. They like to think that things will improve. They probably will keep f ghting for a wildlife program that will assure their children of hunting ajid fishing opportunity. They will survive this latest setback, as they have survived others. However, only history will fully assess the price of another delay in an era when we cannot aiioid delays in conservation. — ADAMS. By The Associated Press i "Good shows, fine food, beau- j tiful dames? I just don't dig that stuff any more." | -Bo Belinsky, 1064. It's strictly a soda pop and early-to-bed world now for Bo, who Wednesday night took a shower afler a game for the first, time this season. The reformed Angel —"I'm behaving like a ball player"— pitched his first complete game and equalled his entire 1963 victory total by posting victory No. 2 as Los Angeles defeated Minnesota 4-1 in the opener of a twi-nighter. It's been two years and 22 days since Belinsky, a veteran pool shark and rookie pitcher, announced his arrival on the major league scene by hurling! a no-hitter. Last year, he made! his first exit, shipped to the i minors with a 2-9 record. This time, he says, things are going to be different. "I'm giving it my best shot," he said. "I've pitched some good games and didn't win. But as long as I know I'm pitching well, F won't gel discouraged. The breaks are bound to fall my way sooner or later." They did against the Twins. Belinsky allowed Minnesota's only run on Harmon Killebrew's 13lh homer but scattered seven hits, struck out eight and did not walk a man in a strong performance. Still, he needed some brilliant fielding support—and got it. With the Angels leading 2-1 and two men on in the seventh, Bobby Knoop made an over-the- shoulder catch of Earl Battey's shallow fly to right. Then, in the eighth, with the tying run on base, Albie Pearson made a running, one-handed catch of Zoilo Versalles' line drive to deep center. The Twins, however, came back to take the nightcap, winning 4-3 on Don Mincher's homer in the 13th inning. Elsewhere in the American League, Ed Rakow stopped Baltimore for the second time in three games and preserved a 6-3 Detroit victory, the New York Yankees whipped Cleveland 7-2 and Washington edged Boston 9-8 in 11 innings. The Chicago White Sox were rained out at Kansas City. Pearson, besides saving Belinsky, scored the tie-breaking run for the Angels in the third inning of the opener when he singled, stole second and scampered home on a single by Lee Thomas. In the nightcap, Bob Allison's llth homer produced an early Minnesota lead but the Angels scored twice in the eighth to tie the score. Mincher's seventh homer decided it. Rakow, who pitched two-hit relief for 5 1-3 innings against the Orioles Monday, stopped Baltimore on two hits over the final 4 1-3 this time. The Tigers broke a 1-1 tie in the fourth with a three-run rally, Don Demeter starting things with a triple and scoring the lead run on a wild pitch by Dave McNally. Al Kaline later homered for Detroit. Bill Skowron and Chuck Hinton homered for the Senators as they built a 7-2 lead, but Dick Stuart's second homer of the game eventually tied the score in the seventh. Each team scored in the eighth before Washington pulled it out in the llth against Dick Radatz.
