THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 1956 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE TWENTY-NIN! Hirer Ripple* Roamin* BOWLING?, Tips for Anglers Some worthwhile fishing tips have been sent to this column by fc. L. (Buck) Rogers, Waukegah. 111., » nationally known outdoor \vMter. He pointed out. that a rubber band In the tackle box is as handy ns it Is 'around the home or office. "When the bass start hitting in the lily pads, and you're minus a lure, the little rubber bands will save the day," Rogers \woie. "Knot it in the eye of the hook and stretch it over the barb. The result, is an excellent weedless hook." Scotch tape is another bandy tackle box item. The tape is handy for making emergency rod repairs or carrying loose hooks. In addition, the tape will hold tiny screws and parts if you must take your reel apart. "Experimentation has shown that bfack or dark brown casting lures art more effective on the surface, especially at night," Rogers continued. "The darker lure is more easily seen when on the water than lighter colored bait. If fish are near sighted, as claimed, and objects a few feet from them are se"eri as a blur rather than in sharp relief, this theory also favors black as the most readilyseen color."

Wis. /T—It's bcon morr than a dooarle sincr thp Green Bny Packers won a National Football League championship. But lh<? famine that started following the banner yenr 19<1<1 when thp Packers won both thr Western Division and league playoff titles may be at an oiif). There's a wave of optimism billowing this year in Packrflnml. partly bocausp of a good training period in their Stpvrns Point summer homp and partly tlup to a couple of impressive exhibition game victories over the Philadelphia Kagles and the New York Giants. The championship aspirations, of course, are more noticeable with the fans than with the coaches. Take Coach Liz Blackboum, for instance. He's not a pessimist, but he doesn't go overboard in saying his 1956 team has a good chance to go a lonfc way in the race. He anti-, cipatos a dingidong battle to de- "T termine the Western Division win- j nnr and doesn't have a particular j c h o i c e for Western laurels. "They're all tough — and apparently tougher than Ifist year." is the way he sums it up. The Packers were third in thp Western end of the league last year with a R and fi record.

Blaekbourn listed as his major needs at the start of the. training period here: Help at quarterback, help at fullback, a No. 2 center and defensive secondary strength. i Motor City Tourney Under Way Today DETROIT /?—A bulky field of I2fi professional golfers tees off: today in quest of $20,000 in prize money as the sixth Mnlor City ^ Open gets under way at the Western Golf and Country Club. Dr. Cnry Middlecoff will not he on hand to defetid the title he won in mr>I, but such ranking performers '• as Mike Souchak, Doug j Ford, Julius Boms and Ed Furgol assure an all-out battle for the top prize of $4,000. Middlecoff, who won the Motor City the last two years it was held and has shared another crown, is resting up from the tough tournament grind. Webb Shatters Calhoun String CHICAGO •*>,-_Spider Webb, a clever sharpshooter who once was n national collegiate boxing champion at Idaho State College., is Hie newest sensation to burst upon the middleweight scene. Webb. 21. scored a unanimous 10 round decision Wednesday night over previously unbeaten Rory Calhoun of New York, 22-year-old son of an Atlanta, Ga., Baptist minister. The scrap was a slam-bang affair from the opening bell, with thr; powerful Calhoun wading in for knockout blows and the nimble Webb using his rights and lefts like an epee. The victory, before a whooping Chicago Stadium audience of 1,849 'Ahich contributed to a cross pate of $2.298. earned Webb a late October shot at the winner of the Bobby Boyd-.loey Giardcllo clash in Cleveland Sept. 21.

Arch and South Jefferson, Jerseyvlllt SKATING HALF PRICE on OPENING DAY 2 and 3 Hour Sessions — Starting 6 P. M. Thru 12 Saturdays and Sundays from 1 P. M. to 12 SPECIAL SKATING LABOR DAY 1 P.M. Thru 12 SKATING NITELY Hunt for Anchoring a boat in the middle of the lake and throwing a baited hook overboard has never proved to be the best way to bring home a stringer of fish. And yet our waterways are full* of such anchor - dropping worm dunkers, Rogers noted. An outboard motor is the answer because the fishermen can eiisily explore, test and find .ideal Ashing sites in a comparatively short time. Fishing. |u:ound rocks, weed beds and stumps is usually effective in lakes. Downstream from sandbars, dikes, adjacent to eddies, back; waters and swift current will usually be productive in rivers and streams. Regardless of baronieter readings, solunar tables and other axioms about the fish biting better, the best time Hqf go fishing is everytime you have time to spare and can sneak away from the house, Rogers explained. Trolling Suggestions Contrary to popular opinion, troll close to a boat because statistics prove that a motor doesn't scar* -a' fish. Evidence has Indi- cBteflVkthat a slowly revolving propeller of an idling outboard attracts i more fish than it scares. Fish are attracted to the moving water of a prop" wash the same way that they are attracted to a ripple spilling into a pool. Moving water usually means food ito a] fish Avoid letting out a mile of line in trolling because much collective information reveals that a short line catches more fish than a long one. If trolling slow fails to attract fish, try trolling fast. "In the spring and fall, when most game fish are frisky, the moter should be reved up to givff the quarry a fast moving target," Roger continued. "As might be expected, the fish strike the taster* moving lures harder and usually hook themselves better." Test Boat High winds can be very dangerous to fishermen who use a boat, especially on Alton Lake and many adjacent waters. The Illinois Federation of Sportsmens Clubs suggests that fishermen invest 1n a life jacket, even if they can swim. Also, it's a good idea to test the boat you Intend to use to be sure that It won't sink, 'it isn't very difficult to install some sort of permanent air tank under the •eat 10 the upset fisherman can hang onto the boat until help arrive*. A five-gallon, air-tight gasoline can wired Into the average boat will keep it afloat and high enough to save your life if a strong wind swamps it. And remember, an over-powered fishing boat on large waters in a high wind IB • perfect combination to produce an accident. Racing Resumes At Du Quoin DU QUOIN, 111.
