He may disclose some of his plans at a press conference today. Elated by the 6-2 vote . of approval given him by the American League, Johnson yesterday said he had an open mind on the managerial situation. He said he had talked to no one about the jobs but had many applications. It was learned that Lou Boudreau deposed manager of the Boston Red Sox, has the inside track lo the field managing job. and Parke Carroll, who was business manager of the New York Yankees Kansas City farm club in the American Assn., is a top candidate for general manager. Bought Park . Johnson's architects have been surveying the Kansas City park for .weeks and are ready to begin increasing the seating capacity from 17,600 to 36,000 before the 1955 season and to about 45,000 by 1856. Johnson obtained control of the , Kansas City ball park when be .purchased Yankee Stadium from Yankee owners Del Webb and Dan Topping for 6'/ 2 million dollars Dec. 17. He then .made arrangements to sell the park to the city of Kansas City and lease it back for five years. The city has guaranteed one-million paid attendance per year for three years or Johnson can move his franchise somewhere else. Under terms .of the deal, Johnson .will pay $450,000 each to Roy and Earle Mack for the 163 shares each owns. He already has paid Connie Mack $604,000 for his .302 shares. He must pick up a $1.200,000 mortgage held by the Connecticut General Life Insurance Co. and must also pay off. debts estimated by him at $800,000. He will get back, however, $1,675,000 by the sale of Connie Mack Stadium to President 'Bob Carpenter of the Philadelphia Phillies. Johnson Happy "I am the happiest man in the world," Johnson said. "It was the toughest fight I have had in my ' life." Were it not for the switch ic 'sentiment of Walter O. (Spike) Briggs, president of the Detroit Tigers, the shift would haye been blocked. A three-fourths vote is needed for a franchise shift and • had Briggs stuck to his original ' position, Detroit would have joined with Washington and Cleveland in rejecting Johnson's bid. • Briggs and Clark. Griffith, 84- year-old president of the Senators, had been violently opposed to the • shift. "I wanted harmony in the league," Briggs explained later. "I was sick and tired of all the wrangling. I knew if 1 voted againsl :the move, we'd be back where we & p j cture O f the Kar started from and the wrangling gotten .. Tne Athleti probably would go on all wmtei fnttm •• Ttn Athleti ' and into the next season. I think .now we'll be straightened out once and for all." As part of the 3', 2 -million-dollar deal, Johnson agreed to sell his interest in Yankee Stadium, home of Ihe Yankees, within 90 days. Colder. G'oxes Registration Dates Are Set ARKANSAS OUTDOORS ^A ** Arkansas Game »Rsh Commission •~'JJ*_ Weather Right for Deer Hunting But Duck Hunters Needing Rain LITTLE ROCK — The weatherman is looking out for But what's good for the goose Is not always good for the gander, and duck hunters are praying for statewide rains that could bring optimum conditions for their sport ay opening day, November 17. Technicians of the Commission report that recent statewide rains have brought water levels at reservoirs and other low areas including some of the Commission's pubic shooting areas only up to a "fair" level. Considerably more rain is needed to attract the large number of ducks that will be necessary to satisfy the anxious army of duck hunters that are patiently awaiting the full flights of southern bound mallards and pintails that will soon arrive here. Sufficient Feed The current success of the squirrel season is an indication that there will be sufficient feed in Arkansas' lowlands to hold the large duck flights with a break on water conditions stopping them in the first place. Even so, overanxious duck hunters can look forward to an ample supply of game with the almost certain prospects of sufficient rainfall for the late flights and the long season extending from November 17 through January 10. Sale of Federal duck stamps have already been reported, and there is indication that the number of duck hunters will probably exceed last year's record. All residents, 16 or more years of age, are required to hold both a resident hunting license and a current Federal Migratory Bird Hunting Stamp to hunt either ducks or one time. geese In Arkansas. Of course, all non-residents are required to possess a non-resident hunting license Shooting; Laws Novice duck hunters who are out for the sport for the first time are reminded that shooting hours on opening day will be Irom 12-.00 o'clock noon until one hour before sunset. On all other days of the season, the shooting, hours will be from one-half hour before sunrise to one hour before sunset. The daily bag limit on ducks is 4, and the possession limit on ducks is 8, except on opening day when the possession limit would only be 4. All hunters are reminded that a new Federal regulation prohibits the killing or taking of wood ducks at any time. The daily bag limit on geese is 5, including 2 Canada geese or its sub-species, or two White-fronted geese, or one of each. The possession limit on geese is one day's bag limit. Ducks and geese may be taken with shotgun only, not larger than No. 10 gauge. Regulations also require that the shotgun be fired from the shoulder. It should also be remembered that ducks may not be taken with any automatic- loading or hand-operated-repeating shotgun capable of holding more In Southwest Conference-— Steers and Porks Seek Same Thing-Winning Combination - Arkansas and Texas — were By THE ASSOCIATED PKESS The two "surprise" teams of the Southwest Conference • both aiming at the same goal today: a winning combination.

In other words, if you use such a gun in duck hunting, its magazine must be cut off or plugged with a one-piece metal or wooden filler incapable of removal without disassembling the gun and also capable of reducing the capacity of the gun to not more than three shells at any Jubilant Kansas City Is Glad It's All Over KANSAS CITY (AP) — Kansas City sports fans whose jubilation over major league baseball turned sour on several occasions during the past four months felt today they could cheer without possibility of a letdown. SENIOR FLANKER—Billy D« Simmons, a lanky senior, got out too late to see much action with the Chicks this year but has shown good progress in practice sessions. Simfnons is an end. (Courier News Photo) Texas was Just looking for a winning combination. The LOHK- horns, five-time losers, winners of two victories and a tie, were picked overwhelmingly for Uie conference championship. The Longhorns will try to salvage part of their former prestige with their game this weekend with Texas Christian's brash sophomores and Texas A&M's lough — but virtually wlnless — Cadets on Thanksgiving Day. Both Bough Assignments Both look like rough assignments. Arkansas, ranked fourth In the national Associated Press poll again today, si ill must face Louisiana Stale and the University of Houston after playing the vastly improved Mustangs this Saturday. "We've still got three games to play." Razorback Coach Bowden Wyatt said as his boys finished their regular light duties for Monday and went to the showers. The Porkers, Wyatt admitted, were in good condition. Longhorn mentor Ed Price switched Billy Qulnn back to lull- back In his search for a winning combine. He moved Don Maroney and Bill Long down to the second and third teams and said: "we'rd trying." Mcllhcnny Alllnjr As the Methodist started prc- prcparatlons for the highly-ranked hogs, their regular left halfback, Don Mcllhenny, was on the doubtful starter list. He suffered* a bruised kidney in the close 6-3' victory over the Aggies last Saturday. The Mustangs may start John Marshall,, high-scoring soph, in place of Mcllhenny. At Port Worth, the Texas Christian Horned Frogs concentrated on offense for their battle with the Longhorns. Coach Abe Martin sent his charges through long passing and running maneuvers and said they would scrimmage but little this week. Rice Works Lightly Rice, latest victim of the Ar- kansn.s juggernaut, worked in sweat suits while the No. 2 team scrimmaged the Rice freshmen. All-Amerloan candidate Dickey Moegie was on the Injured list with Mac Taylor, but Coach Jess Neely thought they would be ready for the Texas Aggies on Saturday. The Aggies took it compardtlvcly easy at College Station where Coach Bear Bryant said he would let his top men skip contact work for most of the remaining practice sessions. At Waco, the Baylor Bears took a holiday. They have no game this weekend, but Coach George Saucr planned a light workout Tuesday and hard scrimmages Wednesday and Thursday. Fifleen of 27 Giants saw action In the World Series.

Philadelphia Athletics here had definitely been completed brought a general response of: "I'm glad it's final." The reaction of Isadore Battaglia, a barber in a downtown shop, was typical. "1 had a little trouble cutting hair and answering the phone about the franchise shift," he said. "But the ciistmoers In the chair were happy ahout the team, too, 50 I got by all right."

Six telephone lines leading intc. the Kansas City Star's sports desk were kept busy most of yesterday answering queries about the franchise shift.
