TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30,1956 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE SEVENTEEN ttlppt Roamin* the Piasa Country Harold End e* a Season Chilly weather, the ending of daylight saving time, and the 'serious threat of low water caused many boat owners to bring their craft home during the weekend and "wrap it up" for this season. It is an ill wind that blows no good, and although the dry weather has created a critical plight for a great many persons, it presented many sunny skies to water enthusiasts. The U.S. Corps of engineers has announced that the lake levels of Alton, Winfield and Clarksville pools will be lowered about one foot by this coming Sunday. The Corps predicted also that the pools may be lowered an additional four feet between Nov. 15 and Dec. 1, unless there is heavy rainfall in the watershed area north of here. Alton Motorbout Club members plan a work party Sunday to disassemble their floating docks for the winter. The docks will be placed in a harbor protected from any ice packs. Comm. OIHe M? workers will enjoy a potluck luncheon at 1 p.m. tor themselves and their families, he concluded. Low Water Tables This column lias pointed out that the water shortage isn't only local but has reached national proportions. \Vater tables are extremely low and even exhausted in many part of the Midwest, and the supply of fresh water is nearly gone along the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic tact their congressman and demand that, the Department of Agriculture stop promoting and giving financial assistance for drainage. Teenager Sport There are many ways to keep teenagers occupied with interesting, wholesome hobbies and sports and one of the most meritorious is the sponsoring of the St. Louis Seas Scouts and their harbor on Alton Lake by the Webster Groves Lions Club. The Sea Scouts, affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America, celebrated their 25th year of boating about 10 days ago by promoting their second annual regatta, related R. (Bob) Wendcl, a Lions Club member. The Sea Scouts have an excellent harbor accommodating 50 boats or more, huge picnic grounds, a large club and shelter houses located miles downstream WILL CARRY BANNER IN OLYMPIC 100—These American sprinters, all of whom have equaled the world 100-meter dash record of 10.2, are slated to take honors for If.
