the Extended Hurwitz's Theorem

The Hurwitz's theorem that I have seen in the textbook until now is as follows : H(G) = the set of analytic functions in G M(G) = the set of meromorphic functions in G C = the set of complex numbers C infinite = C union {infinite} Let {fn} be a sequence in H(G) and fn > f , where f:G>C is continuous. If f is identically not zero, closed disk B(a;R) in G and f(z) not zero in za=R , then there in an integer N such that for n>= N, f and fn have the same number of zeros in open disk B(a;R). Now I think that {fn} in H(G) can be extended to {fn} in M(G). That is, Let {fn} in M(G) and fn > f , where f : G > C infinite is continuous If f is identically not zero or infinite, closed disk B(a;R) in G and f(z) not zero or infinite in za=R , then there in an integer N such that for n>= N, [the number of zeros of f in B(a;R)]  [the number of poles of f in B(a;R)] = [the number of zeros of fn in B(a;R)]  [the number of poles of fn in B(a;R)]. Have you seen this extened theorem in your textbook or exercises?

Start with p. 153 in Conway's book. I believe the problem you mention before regarding Hardy's Theorem came form Conway (actually its problem from the book?).

Theorem I mentioned above is correct, but I came to know actually a stronger result is true. There is an integer N such that for n>=N, the number of zeroes of fn in B(a;R) equals the number of zeroes of f in B(a;R), and also the number of poles of fn in B(a;R) equals the number of poles of f in B(a;R). A statement and a proof of Hurwitz's theorem for meromorphic functions can be found in the book Complex Function Theory by Maurice Heins (Academic Press, 1968 ), Theorem 4.4 on page 180.
