TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 1956 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE THffil > <• Roctmtfi' the Piasa Country Harold THE BIGGER THEY COME.. * SeflmiS Water Condition Alton Lake level will be lowered one foot beginning Friday, Oct. 26, and ending Nov. 4, due lo critical low water conditions of the Mississippi River, according to a bulletin from the Corps of Engineers, U. S. Army. Unless there is sufficient rainfall by Nov. 15, the pool will be lowered an additional four feet by Dec. 1. Commercial navigation is already hampered by the lower water levels at the sill of the Alton Locks and Dam. Lowering the lake level also will have a serious effect upon pleasure boating, harbors, launching ramps, and marine railways. Boatowners are advised to check upon harbor depths and tatte steps to take their boats out for the winter beforehand if necessary- On previous occasions when thf pool level was dropped, many craft were left high and dry in the mud. j Many duck blinds will be left j BOWLING UPPER ALTON LANES Monday Church League Calvary Baptist Men wun 2! from Friendship Gen.

Some further change in | waterfowl habitat may occur. Other Tools Affected Although the Engineers don't believe the lower pool levels will cause injury to the fish population, previous experience has shown that thousands, if not millions, of fish become trapped in shallow bark waters and die. Other effects of the low river stage will be greater problems to commercial navigation, power generation may be affected at St. Louis and an emergency decree issued, industrial operations will be hampered, and DOHT TffY CAN FOKiGT AU.- Downtown Classic Peacock won 2 from Mineral Springs.

Pool 25 at Winfield and Pool 24 at darksville also will be lowered one foot beginning Friday and will have to be lowered further beginning Nov. 15 if the low water situation becomes worse. New Candidate The Dunkers Club gained a new candidate recently when Mn>. Ben (Vfra) \Vhlteslde, 2S30 Hillcrost Ave., reached out of her husband's- sailboat to fend off from a dock they were approaching. A sudden guest of wind hit the sails, the boat darted away, and Mrs. Whiteside was pushing on thin air for only a split second before she" went overboard. Unable to swim, she was pulled back aboard the boat quickly by her husband. She had taken off her life jacket only a few seconds before in anticipation of landing. Although she didn't become afraid in the water, she had a few bad moments later when she realized the close call that she had. New Marine Lift Twin Lakes Harbor, 2 1 ; miles upstream on the Mississippi River from Grafton is in the process of installing a new marine lift, reported Cal Dwigglns, the harbor operator. The unit will be able to lift a 20-ton craft 05 feet out of water, using a one- horsepower electric motor. Cribbing Blocks Jack Schenk, operator of Snug Harbor, has invented some 58 J .a- pound concrete cribbing blocks which are easily assembled in a locked position for boat docks and to prevent soil erosion at the edge of water. He has made a casting box so that several blocks may be made at a time. The blocks are inexpensive, he said. Difference In Zone* Some waterfowl hunters fail tc realize that although duck hunting season is from Oct. 13, through Dec. 21, goose hunting season varies in the state, according to a report from a Telegraph reader. Goose hunting season does have the same dates as duck hunting season in the northern zone of Illinois, but the dates are from Nov. 5 to Dec. 15 in the Southern zone. Important to local hunters is that Madison, Jersey and Cal- noun, counties are in the south- em zone. Many hunters have been arrested for violations because of the difference in zones. LaStarza To Try Comeback NEW YORK Ifl - Roland La Starza, the one - time leading heavyweight c o n te n d e r, announced at the St. Nicholas Arena Monday night that he was planning a comeback. Now 29, the Bronx Adonis hasn't fought since he was knocked out jn the fifth round by Julius Mederos, March 2, 1955. "I had bursltis, chips and spurs in both elbows," said Roland, "but it's all cleared up now. My doctor says I can give it a try. I've been working out at the "Y" and I expect to start boxing in the gym soon to see how it goes."

Packers Still Need Improve, Says Blackbouru By CHUCK CAPAIj,DO GREEN BAY, Wis. UV-Coach Lisle "Liz" Blackbourn figures his Green Bay Packers still have room to improve despite their 4217 slaughter of the Los Angeles Rams. "We need better offensive line blocking for our runners," Blackbourn said today as he and his staff prepared for the Colts' game at Baltimore Sunday. "These things go hand in hand," he added. "If our blocking improved, Tobin Rote would have more confidence in our runners and wouldn't be thinking pass all the time." Rote, who need not take a back seat to any other quarterback in the National Football League, passed for three touchdowns p 1 u n g e d for a fourth and completed 16 of 32 throws for 279 yards. How ton caught seven passes, in-j eluding two for TDs, for 257 yards j gained. He eclipsed the great Don | Hutson's Packer record by 20 j yards as he compiled the third highest yardage total by an end in NFL history. Dodgers Win In Japan, 1-0 SAPPORO, Japan .f — Carl Erskine's slick pitching and a home run by Duke Snider in the ninth inning featured the Brooklyn Dodgers' 1-0 victory over the Tokyu Giants today. The barnstorming Dodgers now have a 2-2 won and lost record in their liO-game Japamvide tour. To illustrate what the Michigan; ^ coach is talking about, four ran-! ners — fullback John Herrnstein j and halfbacks Terry Barry, Jim Pace and Bob Ptacek — have carried the ball on 152 of Michigan's 212 running plays. Barr has carried 35 times and leads the ground gainers with a Says V. S, Reds Get ling Orders Through London NEW YORK «v-The New York Herald Tribune said in a London dispatch today that the American!

The sophomores, Herrnstein and Ptacek, have carried 73 times between them. Herrnstein has a 4.5 average in 53 tries and Ptacek has a 4.1 average in 20 attempts. The Wolverine passing game is just as evenly split up. Although Michigan lacks what Oosterhaan calls a "good, consistent passer," no fewer than 11 players have tried their hand at it in the four games played so far. Brass Shows No Sympathy ForNewcombe BROOKLYN UV-The news that Don Newcombe blames his poor World Series pitching performances on a sore arm brought little sympathy today from the Brooklyn Dodgers' brass. "He says he has a bad arm," observed vice-president Biizzy Bavasi, "and that be also had one during the series. All I know is that April is a long way off and tliis should make him easier to sign." Newcombe .said in Japan Monday that he hurt the arm in the final game of the National League race. In addition lo being battered out in both his World Series starts against the New York Yankees Newcombe has failed to last in two starts during the Brooks' current tour of the orient. "I'm sure it will be all right with a little rest," he said. "I've hurt it before and it's always! cleared up if I've rested it. I sure hope it clears this time." Illinois Woman OnOlympicTeam LOS ANGELES W) — Rebecca Ayars of Urbana, III., Monday won a place on the United State women's 400-meter Olympic relay team. Miss Ayurs, who competes for the Chicago Comets, defeated Rose Caccamise of Batavia, N.Y., in the first heat and then eliminated Chicago's Barbara Jones, a member of the 1952 Olympic team, Miss Ayars was timed in 12 seconds in each heat, nonor in many years. McTier's explosive wallop took the play away from the main event, in which comebacking Frankie Ryff scored a unanimous decision over his Bronx lightweight rival. Frankie Ippolito, in the 10-round television feature. "Solly is big and strong and hej can punch," said Weill. "He's got a lot to learn and so did Rocky. He has a good chance to make it. He beat that Pete Rademacher, who won the Olympic tryouts, in ;he Golden Gloves and he ain'i been fighting long." McTier. 24. said he started boxing Jan. 2, 1955, when he was discharged from the Army. "I had 30 amateur fights, won 29 and 26 by knockouts," he said. "I won the national and interna- U. S. government by force. Williamson is a native Britisher who fought and lost deportation proceedings when he came out of prison. The dispatch said Williamson writes a regular weekly column for the London Daily Worker titled "The American Scene." In recent weeks it has stressed U.S. election issues as seen from the Communist viewpoint. The Herald-Tribune story said the column disappeared from the Communist newspaper during the latter half of August when Williamson was understood to have; visited the Soviet Union and returned with a directive embodying j Soviet observations and instructions. The dispatch said Williamson is to stress to American Communists "Prowler" Ri-porled to he Responding at 9:23 p.m. Monday to a call from Edsall Smith who reported ;i supposed "prowler" hud been in his yard at 110 E.
