the formula adopted vs as follows: *Affiliates of the Society of Wildlife

Specialists for the first year, pending decisions as to permanent organization

and classes and qualifications for membership, should be sought only among

those professionally engaged in the teaching or practice of wildlife management

or wildlife research."
