The meeting , follows closely on tha,t held at ,Wacp a few days. ago. it was attended by. Martin andrthe local cluij presl'den.t, Or. R. A. Webb. T'he meeting was in the form of "a convention, under the auspices of the Texas Wildlife federation. Dr. Webfa was named one of 14 new directors of that organization. The general theme of tho meeting was conservation of Texas wildlife. ' .... A resolution calling on the fed- epation to sponsor a drive for legislation to increase the numbers of members of the State Game, Fish fin Oyster commission from six to 31 was referred to the new directors, who took no action at the meet- ling on the subject. The directors will meet at Waco again on April 14. The federation adopted resolutions favoring several changes in game laws and for other action. They include: Amend state laws to allow game wardens to arrest persons shooting from' public roads, or trespassing. Such laws are now on the books, but game wardens are not empowered to enforce them. Enact a law giving the game department the right to allow controlled hunting of dogs in over-populated sections of the state. Enact a law providing that him- tei's must tag each deer killed. Establishing a wildlife experiment station.

The McClellan Lake Rod & Gun club has at the present a membership of 88, but officers hope that the number can be increased to as much as 500, it was stated. The membership fee is $1 a year. About the meeting next Tuesday night, Martin said: "We have some very important news concerning the future of Texas hunting and fishing to pass on to those present." - «. Decision Coming On 'Outlaw' Ball HAVANA, Cuba, March 9— (&)— Easeball Commissioner A. B. (Happy) Chandler took personal charge of the troublesome south-of-the- border player situation, today as he discussed the eligibility problem with officials of the Cuban baseball league.

Saying that he was feeling as "fit afid ready, to go as 1. did in 1942" Seitz revealed .that he has "come hither" messages but to a lot of good ball players, including many that have played for him here and at Clovis before the.Jea.gue folded up. Asked whether he would put himself in his old outfield position again this year. Seitz emphatically stated that he was ready to go and would compete against the best youngsters in the game. . To date, results from wires, telephone calls, visits and letters have been fairly profitable, Seitz said, but the status of some of his potential players was doubtful. Most important of the players is Emmett Fulenweider, one of the league's most powerful hitters at the time it folded up. Fulenweider, who prefers to call Pampo his home, was signed by Atlanta of the Southern association but told Seitz a, few days ago that he wants to come ot Pampa and expects :i release from Atlanta before the local club starts training April 1. Another formqr Oiler on the list is Lloyd Surmriers, dependable catcher. Summers, who makes his home in Albuquer.que, says he may come to terms With, the local club and Seitz lold this writer yesterday that he would sure like to have Lloyd. Another catcher is on' Seitz' list Schmidt, who caught for Seitz at Clovis. At .shortstop, Seitz will probably set Earl Harrlman, who starred foi Clovis in 1941. Harrlman has also told Seitz that he would like to come to Pampa. Seitz'said he had also contacted Virgil Richardson, who was a first baseinan in.the Western association before the war. Richardson seemed agreeable to playing for Pampa. Seitz said he is investigating the possibilities of checking' lists of j players in San Diego and several other towns for possible good re- 1 suits. ;, 7 The local manager, however, is a little "down" on the rookie situation. He has two prospects lined lip who are how attending the University of Oklahoma. If they are signed they would report after the semester ends May 4. R. L.

Seitz began his baseball career in 1529 in theo Id West Texas- league. He was sold to the St. Louis Cardi- nnls at the end ol the 1929 season and played with the Gas House gang's farm club at Houston in the Texas League, From Houston, he went to the Springfield club in Missouri where he led the league in runs, doubles, triples and stolen bases but ended up the season three days early by breaking his leg. The following year Seitz played for Rochester and Elmira, New York. Ct Elmira lie was in the outfield with Joe Medwick and Buster Mills, two present-day big leaguers. He spent a season in the Western league but the depression hit and most minor leagues folded up. Coining back to Pampa, Seitz went to work for the Danciger refining company and played with the semipro Rotul Runners. In 1930, while playing in the Denver Post tourney, Seitz signed a contract in the Southern league and played there in 1937. After staying out of baseball in 1M8, SeiU and Hal Miller took over the Pampa ball club and finished three games -out of first place in 1939 and in first place in 1940.
