Siebert hasn't reported and has announced he is through with baseball. Bill DeWitt of the Browns, protesting to Chandler, points out he has lost a cracking good ball player. 2fow Chandler must decide whether or not Connie Mack has to send Mc- Quinn back to the Browns or make some other arrangement.' Siebert has taken a job as sports commen- tator on St. Paul. Minn., radio station. Charlie Conacher. who was noted for his gentlemanly habits while a big-time star with Toronto Maple Leafs, has apologized to all con- cerned for his outburst of rugged language during a junior playoff game recently.

High River Sportsmen Honor Sam Smith, Retiring Game Guardian HIGH high- light of the annual meeting of the High River Ksh and Game branch was a presentation made to Sam Smith, retiring fish and game guar- dian of the Highwood district. Mr. Snuth has served in this capacity for the past 32 years, and in making the presentation on behalf of the local branch. Archie Hogg, presi- dent, spoke of his Seen sense of re- sponsibility and devotion to the work of conservation. Visiting offi- cials added their tribute to Mr. Smith's untiring service, and it was suggested that such able veterans might well be used for a year or two in training their successors. Over 100 people attended the meeting, with Archie Hogg presid- ing. Amongst outside visitors were a number cf Calgarians, including George Watt, president of the pro- vincial association; John Southain, Calgarr president; George Scargo, provincial secretary; Them Kjar, provincial game inspector. Others who stroke were Jack Webb, presi- dent of the Turner Valley branch; Ralph Sicotte, president of the Olds branch, who was accompanied by Mrs. Sicotte, the first woman mem- ber of the association, and first delegate to a provincial convention. Provincial Support Mr. "Watt referred appreciatively to the support given to the objec- tives of the association, by the -pro- vincial government, saying: "We have had more 'results and more co-operation from the present gov- ernment than from any government yet." He specified the support cf Ducks Unlimited, the fish-rearing farms in Calgary, the game farms at Brooks, the trapping of beaver in overstocked areas and safe removal to points where they are needed. He also spoke of the reoresenta- tion from the association acting in advisory capacity in framing game act regulations. He referred to the great work for fishermen done by Jim Cross of Caigarv in establish- ment of the fish hatchery, and de- scribed the fish-rearing farms. Andy Wallace, presenting a re- port on the crow and magpie cam- paign, said the past, year had been the best yet, with 805 pairs of legs brought, in, and 4327 eggs destroyed. Youtnful winners in the contest were Earl Kemp. Kenny Taylor and Grant Knupp. Bverett Keller reported on the big game situation as he had found it at the head of the Livingstone and Eighwood. Sheep hunting had been verv ooor. and he suggested a closed season; elk had seemed plentiful and the season might be continued as at nresent; deer also seem on the increase, and he it might be possible to have an open season on bull moose in two or three years.
