TUESDAY, JUNE 15, 1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE. IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN Striped Bass May Be State's Next Import By BOB VOCES Associated Press Writer LANSING (AP) - The striped bass, a fighting, jumping ocean sports fish, may be the next import tried out in Michigan wa ters by the experiment-minded Conservation Department. If the planting is .tried and takes successfully, this would be a sports fisherman's d r e am come true. Take the word of this writer, who has devoted long summers when younger and entire vacations more recently going after the stripers in their native waters off Cape Cod, Mass. Striper fishing can be one of the most satisfying or frustrating of sports. You can spend hours casting from a surf-pounded beach or trolling from a boat — nearly throwing your, arm out of the socket — and only pull in a few jsand sharks. Then, when the run is on catches of half a dozen stripers a day—weighing 20-30 pounds 01 more—will make it all worth while. Robert Stevens, fish biologist with the South Carolina Wildlife Resources Department, is in Michigan this week to consult with the State Conservation De -partment on the possibility of Importing the stripers to Mich igan. "You need a good food supply —you have that," Stevens said "and you need a suitable spawn ing ground." The overabundance of ale wifes in the Great Lakes prom Ises an ample food source, Ste vens said. The Great Lakes tern perature should be no problem since the fish range as far north as Nova Scotia. But they need a strong curren tor the fish to reproduce. The eggs must drift in the curren for about two days before thej hatch—if they go to the bottoir they suffocate. The stripers now are so abun dant in the Santee - Cooper Res ervoir, a 160,000 acre body of in land water in South Carolina that a striper rodeo has becomi a gala annual fishing event. The largest fish caught then recently weighed 55 pounds. The striper gained access t the reservoir accidental! through a lock. They have sue water and have been planted i fresh water in other souther states. The stripers are a great sport fish, good eating and "in suff: cient numbers could provide major boost to the commercia fishing industry in the Grea Lakes. Captain Has Difficult Task of Forecasting Viet Nam Weather By HAL BOYLE DA NANG, South Viet Nam (AP) — Weather is one-of the most important words in war. Every American over here talks about the weather — usually in uncomplimentary terms — but Capt. Norman F Jacobs is one of the few who does anything about it. He forecasts it. He also can explain the vagaries of the two monsoon seasons over here which have most people baffled. As commander of Detachment 9 of the 30th Weather Squadron Jacobs has a vital role. In war, both ground and air INDIAN TRAIL MARKER?—This gnarled old tree in the Allegan state game area, which seems to be just right for climbing by youngsters, years ago may have guided Indians in their travels through the wilderness. According to a longstanding opinion shared by some and scoffed at by others, these early natives of Michigan marked their trails by bending saplings and staking them down so that the misshaped trees could be easily spotted. Happily for today's sightseers, many of these so-called trail-marker trees are still found in Michigan. They have been reported in Allegan and Ottawa counties and near Traverse City, Whitmore Lake, Brighton, Sparta, Muskegon, Whitehall, Glen Lake, Northport, Elk Rapids, Acme, St. Johns, Rose City, Munising, Au Train, and Ironwood. Whether these trees are indeed old Indian trail markers or whether they were deformed by the forces of nature is a moot point but whatever the case may be, they add a curious touch of interest to any outdoor trip.—Mich.

(AP)— In the sagebrush and jack-rabbit country of lonely northeastern Nevada, Kenneth Krueger, a train - weary San Francisco Bay area commuter, found the ittle town of Currie—population 50—for sale. It was just what he and his wife Jeannette had been looking for. So they bought it with their life savings of $85,000. Tuesday, Krueger, 45, and his wife will pull up stakes at their apartment here and point their station wagon east for Currie. The ex-suburbanites are assured of a cordial reception. Krueger, until last week motor vehicle inspector for Pacific Telephone & Telegraph Co. in automatically town mayor, holes here." The West Virginia slammer, now 52 but long as ever off the tee, had just finished a practice round over the vast Bellerive Country Club course, site of the U.S. Open Golf Tournament that begins Thursday. "It's tough, plenty tough," he .said Monday. "It's going to be tougher than any other Open course I've played." And that takes in a lot of ground. Snead is making his 25th appearance in the Open. It's a phenomenon of golf that he has yet to win. He's won almost everything else, more than 100 major tour- .naments, in a career that's becoming legendary. But the Open always has eluded him. "You're going to be surprised at some of the scores played here," Snead drawled after his practice round over the 7,191- yard, par 70 course, longest "ever for a U.S. Open. A number of others in the select field of 149 had hinted that the course played not quite so long as they had expected. But Snead was having none of it. "I don't care what they're •aying," he retorted. "It's a long, tough one. It's built tor the long player." Snead played his practice round in the same foursome with Ken Venturi, the 1964 champion attemptimg to make a comeback after suffering cir- NEW! CAR SPRINGS AU cars.

That's because he not only bought the town's 75 acres but its few houses and businesses as well. Krueger and his wife will run the general store, the service station, a bar and a trailer park. Until 1900 Currie was a railhead for cattle and sheep growers. Now the livestock goes to market in trucks^ but Currie still caters to hunters and fishermen. It lies at the foot of the towering Goshute and Ruby mountains whose slopes abound in elk and deer and whose streams tumble with trout. A blink of the eye and you're past it on U.S. 93, 76 miles north of Ely. The Kruegers don't know exactly when they got the yen to flee suburbia. But, Krueger says, "five years ago, on our vacations, we began probing all the desolate areas of California. We were hunting for a spot where, if you wanted to make it as such, you could nractially live the year 1859 all over again." For various reasons the land they saw in California didn't appeal. Last year the Kruegers stopped in Currie. There they met F. A. Majors who wanted to sell the town — lock, stock and barrel. "We had the money," says Krueger. "But, believe me, it wasn't through inheritance or anything like that. It was our savings, close-to-the vest living." "Yes, even beans and hot dogs, at times.", U-M Dedicates Space Building ANN ARBOR (AP) — Astronauts to the moon or even Mars may find their space trips mapper), so to speak, from a building Gemini 4 astronauts James McDivitt and Edward White are to dedicate today at the University,of Michigan. It is the university's new Space Research Building, constructed with $1.7 million from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and already allocated $6.2 million for space related projects. It was started March 24, 1964, a few months before the university celebrated last fall the 50th anniversary of the founding of its aeronautical engineering department, the first such at any American university. Its first occupants are to move in next Monday. McDivitt and White won bachelor and master degrees, respectively, in aeronautical engineering here in 1950-45 years after the department was established. Research to be carried out over the new building's 55,000 square feet of floor will reach to the .Sun and Jupiter on to the depths of space itself. Its work will be concerned with rocket engines, satellite instruments, moon and mars probes, space flight theory, trajectory analysis, space communications, atmosphere structure and particle density, and radio emission from the Sun, Jupiter and deep space. Expetiments also are to be conducted on a series of Orbiting Geophysical Observatories (OGO), satellites to measure radio emissions from the milky way, and "look at" the Sun and Jupiter over a wide range of frequencies. out hourly reports but sometimes as Federal Road Aid Refused LANSING (AP) —The Highway Department says the Bureau of Public Roads Monday rejected two requests for authorization to acquire right of way. The bureau said it could not operations are to a great degree dependent on the weather, and it is his onerous task to predict It accurately as far in advance as possible. In the operations office of the big Da Nang air base, the captain, 32, who comes from Los Angeles, directs 22 American and Vietnamese Air Force helpers. He also works closely with 20 employes of the nearby Vietnamese civilian weather station Every morning and evening at 8 o'clock they send up a large transmitter-carrying balloon which rises to a height of 80,000 feet as it sends down data on wind and temperature. "At those same hours other balloons are sent up at hundreds of weather stations around the globe," said Jacobs. "Thus we get an Instantaneous picture of the atmosphere throughout the world. * * * "The balloons stay aloft 1V6 to 2 hours, then expand and burst. Sometimes one of them will fall into our ammunition area — and then there's a little excitement." About 150 feet off the runway Jacobs has an air-conditioned, glass-walled observation shack which he describes as one of the most modern installations m Southeast Asia. 'It operates as the weather does — 24 hours a day," he said. "We send regularly, often as every 10 minutes." Now, about those mysterious monsoons. Most people think South Viet Nam has two seasons: The dry season, when the country is like an arid desert, and the monsoon season, when the skies open and flood down rain in torrents for six months. The Viet Cong are supposed to welcome the monsoon season, because the bad weather keeps our fighter planes down and they can attack us with less risk of punishing air strikes. Well, it isn't quite that simple "In a tropical climate such as this we can expect an afternoon rain in any part of the country at any time of the year, including the so-called dry season," explained the meteorologist. "The word monsoon merely means weather caused by winds. There are two monsoons, not one. * * * "In the summer monsoon the winds blow from the southwest and it rains heavily around Saigon and the delta region "But by the time the winds reach Da Nang, several hundred miles to the north, the mountains have wrung out most of their moisture So it is comparatively dry up here." "During the winter monsoon the situation is reversed. The winds blow from the northeast and dump heavy rains on Da Nang and smaller amounts of moisture around Saigon.

"We're wrong if we adopt legislation that keeps young prople from getting milk at the lowest possible price," said Sen. Terry Troutt, D-Romulus. "The committee, and likely death, was beaten. Tempers warmed by the milk debate spilled over Monday marking a new corporate production record. The old mark of 1,239,168 units was set in the 1953 model run; the 1964 model output totaled 1,130,020 cars.

That means, whenever stormy weather appears, the enemy can plan a surprise attack in ment can exercise full control over tire right of way. The action followed a decision by the State Supreme Court declaring unconstitutional the law under which the department has been removing advertising signs from highway right of way. The department estimated it could lose $139 million a year in federal aid unless the authority was restored. A bill to give power over advertising signs along the highways back to the department was reported out of a Senate committee last week. Rejected by the federal agency Monday were department requests for authorization to acquire 41 parcels of land for the building of 1-94 business route from the south city limits of St. Joseph northerly to Winchester and to acquire 65 parcels for the widening of M-46 from Brooks Road to Maple Island Road in Muskegon County.

Truck Drivers Go on Strike DETPOIT (AP) —About 200 drivers for some 40 meat slaughtering and packing companies were on strike today. The strike, called Monday by members of Teamster local 337, may cut down on meat deliveries to small grocery stores and supermarkets. But was not expected to affect meat supply seriously tor Detroit and surroundings. The strike does not halt 1,000 regulat'ng filling of inland lake and stream beds. It became a near-repeat of the water pollution debate when an amendment was introduced permitting dumping of mineral residue Ir. any body of water whether owned by the mining operator or not. The amendment is designed for the Upper Peninsula mining industry.

As of this week, GM had built 3,450,000 of its 1965's compared with 5,478,000 of the '64's built at this same time last year. American Motors, which built 393,859 in its 1964 model run, passed the 362,855 mark last weekend and expects to wind up the '65 model year with Its total close to last year's figure : Ward's automotive Reports, a trade publication, said today it was convinced its forecast made several months ago of an 8,850 000 production total for the 1965 model run would stand up well, if reached, this would be about 959,000 ahead of last year's model run. To help maintan Its high production quotas, Ford had 11 of its 16 assembly plants on overtime operations Saturday. General Motors had four of its 22 units in similar operation. Chrysler -and American Motors scheduled regular five-day work weeks.

Repeating his pledge not to run against McNamara, whom he called a "very effective senator," Williams told a news conference he had no indication that the incumbent would not seek re-election in 1966 Speaking to an International Conference of Credit Union Executives in Detroit, Williams, now assistant secretary of state for African affairs, said it would be nice to return to Michigan to work with a "constructive legislature."

Krueger says he expects his position as the town's only businessman to keep him on the job most of the time. "But it's going to be a lot more than just punching a time clock. We're going to build up Currie, but still keep it on a real, live old frontier basis. We've never been happier in our lives."
