The men used sur- ffice lures and landed four bass on • poppers nnd four on plugs. Adams said the best fishing is In Hie early morning as he tired the sump place on several evenings without a strike. Young Klsning Fun ,T. A. Roeder landed a 30-inch slui-fipon. Sunday, below Alton dam. Reeder said thai, while he was fish ing. his grandson. David Wilson. 6. \\lio was at. home, broke his own rod nnd reel while playing in the yard with other youngsters. Little David went into the house, got the keys to Reeder's car, and then unlocked the car trunk where Reeder keeps several rods and reels. David picked out the most expensive rod and reel and resumed playing with his buddies. After Reeder returned home, lie was a little unhappy about his best outfit hoin used as a toy. Bill Stock, 9, caught his first fish on a plug, Sunday. He caught a 11- inch bass on a popper plug. Elk Hunting Every fall, Mr. and Mrs. Herman Wilkcning go elk hunting near Sandy Point, Idaho. They usually leave Alton 10 days prior to the beginning of the season which is Oct. 15. After reaching Sandy Point, they join three other couples for the hunting trip. The group then drives 280 miles into wild country where they pitch a camp of several tents. The group continues to hunt from two to four weeks until each person bags an elk, except Mrs. Wilkening, who has little interest in shooting an elk. Herman says that, as they hunt In rough country, it is an inconvenience for his wife, who always plans to stay home the next trip, but regains her enthusiasm each year. Meat Is Dressed After the animals are shot, they must be dressed within 45 minutes to prevent spoiling. Then the elk are left on a rock to cool all night. The following morning, the animals are quartered, carried back to camp, and hung from trees. The meat keeps well in the cool climate. After the hunters return to Sandy Point, they place the elk in a food locker where it is cut and later packed in dry ice for shipment home. Wilkening said the meat reaches Alton still frozen solid although en route for many days. WOOD RIVER. ~ Some little known facts about a much discussed subjeet—taxes, were given to Lions Tuesday noon by Township Clerk J. W. Kelly. They are: Wood River Township is truly the giant of Madison County with 52,946,000 charged against It In taxes, It Is one of the 10 largest townships in (he state outside Cook county. Seventy-five percent of township taxes are paid by Industries. The Shell Oil Co. refinery Is the biggest taxpayer In the township. It now costs $2000 more to operate the tax office than ever before because of the residential development of the area, Increasing the number of tax Items. There are eight separate and distinct taxing units In Wood River Township which figure In the rotes. More Taxes Thin Year The fact that taxing bodies levied more taxes this year is the direct cause of increased taxes in the township. The assessed value of almost nil property is the same as it has been for the past five years. So Kelly ndvixed, "Unless the assessor hns raised your assessed Weekly Setv-Thrifly value, don't blame him. Compare your'tax bill with last year's, then you'll know what taxing body has increased." Kelly offered several other stale- ments'of advice, "Be sure you pay your own taxes," he said. "Tf you don't, you may not get your money bark and your property may bo sold for taxes, "Pay you taxes, If possible. In full to the local collector because you are the Indirect beneficiary." The Township, which Is one of the taxing bodies, receives two percent of every $1 In taxes paid here. Last year, $'11,026.43 was returned to the Township. Kelly, who has been township clerk for 28 years, said that In all that time, there have only been three times when attendance nt the annual town meeting exceeded 1 10 people. Few «i MeMlnit In 1934, there were over 100 persons nt the meeting and this year, the attendance was over 50. The annual town meetings are held the first Tuesday tn April. Taxes for township purposes are; levied at this time. Although this is the only form of government, in which the Individual citizen can have a direct voice, interest seems to be waning, Kelly said. Don Ott was program chairman. The next. Lions meeting will be Tuesday evening at 6:30 at the Sunshine Blue Room.
