worked out an agreement with the State of Georgia whereby fresh

during their closed season thereby giving Florida dealers an out-

let for their catch as the State of Georgia is considered our best

market for most varieties of freshwater fish. Due to the fine job

Gilbert Culbreth done at this meeting I was re-appointed on this committee to meet

again in February 1945.
