According to Dr. Roy Webb, who was re-elected president of the club, thn game commission consists of six men -appointed by the governor, ese six men, most of them liv- .ng in central Texas, met four times last year. \ Each meeting lasted three hours. That makes 12 hours to work out the control of a business that means $94,000,000 to the State of Texas each year.

"Until that league gets a contract Doti Webb explained that the federation of clubs such as the one here, in Amarillo, Fort Worth and all over the state would bring about Exchange in the existing conditions. The state federation of clubs is unique in that each club, no matter how large or small, has one man on the board of directors of the fed- ertaion. For instance, Fort Worth's Anglers club has 1,500 members and the local club has something over 100 but Pampa still has one director on the board of the federation, Since Lake McClcllan was opened, about five years ago, one small stock of bass has been dropped in, Bert Howell, concessionaire, report- , ., . cd last night.

Thn seven-foot one-inch player iinished the campaign with 595 points in 28 games, three more than the 592 points Vlnoe Hanson of Washington state tallied in 37 games in winning the high scoring crown a year ago. Only one player—Bob Kurland of the Oklahoma Aggies—still has a chance to overtake Morgenthaler and this appears remote. Kurland, fifth at 513, needs 83 to go to the top. He plays against Oklahoma tonight and against Kansas next Monday. If the Aggies beat Kansas, Kurland then will have a further opportunity by playing in the NCAA eliminations.

PETERSBURG, Fla., March 13._(#>)—Though the St. Louis Cardinals dropped cheir first three ex- hibtion games to the Yankees OVGI the past week end, Manager Eddie Dyer's young men still made a vivic impression on the overflow crowds of fans, scouts-and;writer^who attended .the series. . It might be stretching a point to hill the games as a. preview of the 1046 world series, but nothing the Cards did lessened the impressior that they would represent the National league in the October play- lubs in the United States and those Canada >affiUated with leagues hat also operate in this country, a flayer Is foolish to go down there," Hornsby said In' an Interview here oclay.

"Masquel owned five of the teams n the league," Horhsby said. "One ay I'd have a player on my team. The next day he'd be playing against me. Sure, I know he's not supposed o own more than one club in the eague. He could shift the players round because the clubs didn't have ontracts for most of their players.

The terrifis task of selectivity confronting the Card pilit was emplw sized at the outset of the series when a long, tall righthander named Fred Martin held the Yanks to a lone single for three innings. Ye " " Dyer a lars were set aside for this purpose last year. Webb charged that these bass had been dumped 1 in private lakes in this territory. Bright spot of the meeting last night was the factt hat about eight men from Perryton wei;e present. The men heard about the meeting and came down. Webb encouraged them to form a club of their own and get a director in the federation. Lake Fryer near Perryton was the center of discussion of fishing and it was reported that the quantity of bass was very Jow there, also, 0 CUBANS SIGN HAVANA March 13— Of) — The Washington Senators are not letting organized baseball's differences with the Mexican league interfere with their signing of Cuban players. Six Cubans now are on Washington's roster. Houston before the war and set a Texas league record of 13 consecu tive wins, is an "unknown" compared to a dozen other members of th Cards' staff. Ray Sanders will be back on firs base, even though he hit only .276 last season.

By AUSTIN BEALMEAR NEW YORK, March 13.—(/Pi— Any ideas that the United States will have to depend entirely on the stars of prewar years to win back the Davis Cup already have been shattered at the Natical Indoor tennis championships, first major event in the series leading up to Inlnrnalional competition. As .singles play in the indoor rnrcl moved into (!><'. qujvrlp.r-riiuils today, I,WD of Uic notion's .six (.np-nmkiim veterans had fallen by l.lin wiiysidr victims of unseeded youngsters. Latest to bow to the exuberance of you'll is Elwood Cooke, No. 4 man in the current national rankings. who was bounced rudely out of the third round yesterday by John Ager, from Birmingham, Ala., in a straight set match, 6-1, 7-5. On the sidelines. Cooke poined Gardner Mulloy of Miami.

Carried to three sets by Ed Jenkins in the second round, Wood again dropped the first set yesterday before disposing of Ray Antignat of Forest Hills, 4-6. 6-3, 6-2. And. as if Wood's path hadn't already been rough enough, the nation's fifth tanking star next faces Billy Talbert of Wilmington. Del., the top-seeded tournament favorite. in the round of eight. It was different, hoover, for former Champion Don McNeill of Orange, N. J., who had to uncork some of his best shorts to stop Ladislav Hccht, the former Czech Davis Cup star, 6-2, 11-9. Pancho Segura, Miami university's National Intercollegiate champ from Ecuador, ousted J. Gilbert Hall of New York, 6-2, 6-1.

Y., who stopped Enrique Buse, second-seeded foreigner here and 6-3, 6-2 w'iner over Frank Bowden ofe Maplewood, N. J.
