FRISCO MAE FRANCIS SINK. CarrMMX^ml CRUISING DOWN THE RIVER: William E. Collins get* ready to shove off from Memphis with his Tons MlkeV 7, and William. Jr., 10 (In bow) on their 1400-mile trip down the Mississippi. By RAY HAMILTON NEA Special Correspondent ]y|EMPHIS—(NEA) — When most father think of taking their children on a 1400-mile vacation trip they think in terms of something more than a 14-foot b at and a five-horsepower motor. But that's the transportation being used bv William E. Collins and his two sons, William, Jr., 10, and Mike, 7, in a cruise "own the Mississippi from Rockford, III., to New Or' f'S. "I always wanted to take a trip like this, anu I didn't see any nee of putti.ig it off any longer," said Collins when he tied up at I.Iemphis for a few hours. "I knew the boys would get a big kick out of it, too." And when Collins says he's having as r.iuch fun as the boys, he's convincing. « o «• * Collins, a Rockford attorney, and a Marine veter of World War II and Korea, is a big friendly guy with rugged features. He's navigating the river by means of a handbook of light locations and half a dozen road maps. "But mostly we just let the river do the work," he says. Traveling "at a leisurely pace — about 60 miles a day—they make many stops along the way, putting into sandbars for swims and meals, visiting small towns for gas and food and seeking out coves for fishing. Nights are spent on sandbars. The cost: about $5 a day.

Collins says nearly all the river folk they've met remember the 1951 voyage of the two boys and two girls aboard the raft Le- thargia. "Many who've given, us helpful advice also helped the Lethargia along," he said. The stopover in Memphis was for motor repair, lunch, haircuts and two T-shirts for the boys. 'Our wardrobe is pretty light— in fact, we're wearing it," Collins explained. "But you don't need much else besides swimming trunks." Collins puts a lot of responsibility in his sons. He says they've learned enough about boating to make the trip alone. All three are pretty good swimmers. '^he boys worship their father. And you can't blame them. How many other father.= have gone on a 1400-mile rive • trip in an open boat with their sons?
