Will Be Proposed
OKLAHOMA CITY, Feb. 7-UuJt)
—House Floor Leader Rhys Evans
of Ardmore said today he would
introduce Monday an administra-
tion bill to reorganize the state
fish and game commission.
Governor Roy J. Turner wants
the bill. He proposes to make the
commission an eight-member board
instead of five with one from each
congressional district who would
serve staggered terms. In addi-
tion, the bill Evans will introduce
will call for a state director of the
commission, rather than a warden.
At the same time, Turner said
he- probably would not change for-
mer Governor Robert S. Kerr's ap-
pointees on the state aviation com-
mission and soli conservation board.
Turner said he would “probably"
ask the state senate to confirm
the following Kerr appointments:
