vVEDNESDAY, AUGUST r>, 19.V, ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE THIRTY-ONE Roctmifi 9 the New Hunting; Arras As part of a $58,000 allocated for development of frdrval lands in this area for the romiiitf year, Godar Island, a 600-acrn waterfowl inviolate sanctuary near Hardin, will ho improved, related 1). O. RcttliiRi-r,'.vville, Illinois Conservation Dcpnrlmenl biologist in charge of Ihe vvator- lowl management program for this region. In addition, Diamond and Hurricane islands, consisting of about fi'lO acres, also near llai- din, will be open for waterfowl hunting about Nov. 1, following completion of projects uni 1 '. 1 ! 1 way there, he said. The number of blind sites on those two islands to be staked will be about 3f> to 40 and hunters can build the blinds only after completion of the projects. "This is the first cooperative development project between the Corp of Kngineers, U. S. Army; the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Conservation Department since about I'O.'OIKi acres ot leileral lands were placed under the supervision ot Ihe Conservation Department," Retlingt-r related. .Many Hlinils in Itrgion "This project will open the. door on other projects," be continued. "All projects arc costly and surveys are now under way lor access points for boat launching, road improvements to fishing, hunting 'and boating sites, parking areas, picnic grounds and weed control using sodium arsenite. in fishing waters." The lotus plants in Stump Patch Lake adjoining Pere Mar- ouette Park were not. sprayed this year because it couldn't have been done in time to destroy (lie seeds, Rettinger added. Aerial spraying is expensive but the job will be done earlier next year. About 5.000 acres of water in lx>ng Luke, Clear Lake, Flat Lake and Coon Lake are open and will be kept that way, lie said. , "The Glades north of the park is another new area open to waterfowl hunting and about 25 blind sites have been staked there,'' Rettinger explained. "Supervised marked blinds in this area' will total about 475 this year, as compared to 392 blinds last season. Although four men may hunt from a blind, only three have to be registered." Hazardous Piling Some time agg, the government removed a steel tower setting in the water off Edwards Island at the junction of the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers by cutting it flush with the water, pointed out Everetto Fry, operator of the Grafton Boat Works. Although a lighted buoy marks the navigation channel about 20 feet in front of the piling, several pleasure boats have met with disaster by going behind the buoy and striking the piling, recently "The former si eel lower, which was once a navigation aid, consisted of .I's to four-inch pipes." Fry related. "I believe the piling is a hazard and it is the government's responsibility to remove il." Last month a speedboat owned by Kay Boston, who docks his craft at Twin Lakes Harbor. struck the piling and sank Within a minute. Four passengers and two skiers being lowed by thai > boat were rescued, fa I DwiKKins, operator of the harbor, said that members there are considering a petition to have the piling removed. A Major Project The upstream side of Edwards Island has a shallow sandbar on which dozens and dozens of pleasure craft anchor on weekends while passengers wade, swim or ski in the adjacent waters. Many of the water recreationists are unaware that the piling is there. Technically though, all boats 'should heed warning buoys and stay in the channel unless certain of the waters, river veterans said. "The piling is on the end of a submerged wing dike and the crew of the U. S. Coast Guard boat, Poplar, tried to remove the piling without success last year," related 1,1. Orudr, It. .1. MacUlf, USCG, Old Custom House, St. Louis, "It would require divers and a demolition crow, not to mention huge funds, to remove the piling."

She is a man-made nobody with s p o 11 g e s for lungs, wood sheeting for a heart, and cotton to fill the interior spaces-all constructed around the real heart of a human chest.

Aloii/o Slagg, grand old man of football who will be 94 Thursday, received his birthday tributes Tuesday, including one from President Eisenhower. At a pre-hirtliday party put on by the Lions Club, a telegram from the White House was presented to Stagg praising "a lifetime of physical and mental fitness." Stagg. born Aug. 16. 1862, at West Orange, N. J., was a coach for more than 60 years, including some '10 years at the University of i Chicago.

He was televised in a five-minute folk which is expected to he followed by a similar plea at the Republican National Convention in San Francisco next week. He urged every cilixcn to make himself a committee of one to get another citizen to vote. The Illinoisan was Slate Rep. Richard Stengel, Rock Island, a delegate-at-large to the convention and Ihe Deiwx ratic nominee for IKS. senator from Illinois. He was chosen to make the talk on the convention television time by National Committee Chairman Paul Hutler of Indiana. Stengel called Ihe subject of his short talk "about, the most important problem in the United States." "The vital breath of freedom is Ihe active, informed and .intelligent participation in the affairs of government by all people." said Stengel. "This is the soul of democracy, This year we are engaged in another gio;:t political campaign teslin;; Ihe national will on our policies, and testing ourselves. I welcome therefore, this opportunity to | urge that each and all of you ! to rccistrr. inform yourselves on the issues and vote your i-on; \ ii'lions." Stengel said "destruction of a I roe and secret ballol is the first | goal ol every tyranny. Kvory ballot cast is a blow against tyranny all over the world."
