In tnls day and ago when you can expect anything, it is not surprising that someone would abolish the State Game Commission, responsible for Pennsylvania's recognition as tho leading state in the Union lor game conservation. While- we are not heaitily in accord with everything that the com- mision docs, we cannot blame the or- ganisation itself ns much ns the personnel Without the game commission, this Commonwealth would be bereft of the wonderful hunting privileges we all enjoy. There may, at times, be just cause to criticize its members for they are apt to make errors common to human beings But Dr. William H. Moore, who at one time served on the commission, would replace the State Game Commission by a scientifically trained specialist. "If things are allowed to continue as they are, tho only hunting available in Pennsylvania 25 years from now will be that provided by intensified breeding of small game," he asserted. "The problem of conservation of our animal life is no longer one that can be treated as a plaything . . . the present Game Commission should be abolished and a man trained in the science of conservation should bo placed in charge of the State's whole program " Dr. Moore appointed to the Game Commission during the second term of Governor Pinchot's administration, asserted the most pressing problem facing game officials now is how to cut down the size of the State's deer herd "There are so many deer in the State now that they cannot get sufficient food," he said First there was unrest because of the threatened scarcity of wild life. Now the ex-commissioner belcves there'll be an over-abundance of game. We ve never heard of anjone who can fix the line on supply and demand.

WASHINGTON, Mar 8. -- The greatest hitter of all time--a slugg'r that never saw a baseball game-stood todny in the batters' box at Griffith stadium. Veteran baseball men were awed as this slugger slammed the first ball far over the ccntcrfield fence, 420 feet from home plate. The next went even farther Edward B Eynon, Jr, secretary of the Washington Nationals, waited for the third ball to sail far out into centerficld, then returned to his office without even tendering the hitter a contract No one cheered as ball after ball was driven to the oulfleid, none of them going less than 350 feet. The 34,000 seats were vacant, except for halt a dozen men painting io preparation for the opening game next month. big league -This slugger can't field; can't run the bases; has no brain It is only a copper-colored, iron cylinder filled with compressed air. U is being used to compare the "liveliness" of American and National League balls The machine was made by the Bureau of Standards at the request of an American League committee headed by Clark Griffith, presiden and ownar of the Washington club For two weeks Dr. H. L Dryden chief of the bureau's mechanics and sound division, has been putting the machine through its paces indoors Yesterday it was given its first outdoor test Mounted, it looks like a trench mortar. Air is compressed at 50 to 75 pounds in the head of the cylinder An ash block, about the diameter o a baseball bat, is placed m front o the cylinder head and two feet be hind a ball Release of the air forces the "bat" forward until it.strikcs the ball Sev cut -Qve pounds of pressure knocked the first two balls over the fence The pressure was then rc-duccd to 50 pounds. An equal number o£ American League and National League balls were used. Under scientific testing, the two makes of balls traveled about the same distance Dryden said there wasn't "enough difference" to draw any conclusion.
