4D--Aug. 6, 1972 * Sunday Gu0tto~MmU OurlMton, W«tl VlrthH»--. PAINFUL Eskimo Olympics Tough As Arctic Environment How do you become a winner in trap-shooting? By shooting a lot, first of all. Very few trapshootera ever win a major title on sheer ability and little practice. Frank Hall of Charleston, who won the West Virginia singles title last month, had shot some 7,500 registered targets this year prior to his victory. This is probably more targets than anyone else in the state swung a shotgun at. Hall belonged to the Carbide Trapshooting League in 1955 and describes himself as "a casual shooter" at that time. Then he quit shooting and didn't take it up again until the spring of 1970 when a co-worker, BiH Patten, told him. "let's go skeet shooting." He found that he had to learn all over again. Hall doesn't have any magic formula fo \ ,'· his recent successes, which include victory in '' ""''- the preliminary Grand American handicap a HALL Vandalia, Ohio, three years ago--a victor} worth more than $4.000 to him. But in addition to shooting a lot, he advises that "you have to be careful and watch your technique and do everything righ each time." That's a big order. Hall and several other area trapshooters will participate in the Grand American which will be held Aug. 19-25. Coal Traffic Would Affect Scenic Area Among the controversies generated by the proposed deep- mining operations along the Shavers Fork River in the ; Monongahela National Forest is one over how much truck /traffic would be generated by the mines. . Jay Cravens, regional forester with the U. S. Forest Serv- ·- ice office in Milwaukee, has contended the coal truck traffic ;· will have no adverse effect on tourist travel on the Glade · ; R u n road, which provides access to the Gaudineer Scenic Area. : However. Ralph McDonald, vice-president of Mower Lumber :[ Co. which has applied for permits to operate the Glade Run ·. mines, was quoted in an Elkins newspaper article that daily .-·production from the mines would be 10,000 tons. This would ;' require 500 trips per day by 20-ton dump trucks. : Don Phares, a national forest fishery biologist with the state ^Department of Natural Resources, commented that "anyone i who says truck traffic of that magnitude will not adversely : affect tourist use either does not know the area or prefers to ignore the facts. "Five hundred trips per day by large coal trucks will eliminate tourist travel as well as the Gaudineer Scenic Area. Even one hundred trips per day is not compatible with tourist ·_ use. "It appears that the multiple use concept is going to be stretched very hard to cover forest service actions in this operation. Of course, the forest service can fall back on one of their standard procedures and simply redefine multiple use." * * * New River Gives Four Youths Big Scare Four Roanoke youths received a near-tragic introduction to the New River Canyon last month, according to a story in the Roanoke World-News. The youths--Steve Lambruscati, Melvin MitcheH and Ronnie and Reggie Altizer--capsized in "Lower Kenney"--a wild rapid approximately six miles above Fayette Station. Jon Dragan, who operates float trips on New River, was just behind the Roanoke party taking some clients downriver, and witnessed the capsizing. Dragan tried to wave the youths away from the dangerous rapid but they reacted too late, Dragan told them they were lucky to escape with their lives. In addition to their lives, they got out with only their life jackets and the shorts they were wearing. They lost everything else. The Roanoke youths say they plan to ride the New River canyon later this summer with Dragan and then try it again on their own. * * * Two Views On Management of forest · How should the Monongahela National Forest be managed? · Should large areas of the forest be set aside and preserved in their natural state as nearly as possible, or should the U.S. Forest Service take the "picnic table" approach? Two views on this subject are presented on page 8D. Read them and decide for yourself.

The traditional meet which is as tough as the Arcti environment that spawned it attracted a good number of rug ged Alaskan and Canadian Eski mos. despite fcrest fires and rratic plane schedules that de- erred some title holders. Reggie Joule, a young Alas kan competing for his secoiu r, jumped to victories in the one-foot high kick and blanke toss, while Gordon Killbear oi Barrow, Alaska, cracked his own record for the kuncklel hop A Canadian, Mickey Gordon topped the two-foot high kick record but nearly severed his ear in the process of placing second in a later event. The games are test of pain, endurance and agility which have been handed down for centuries in Arctic villages. Some, [ike seal skinning and fish cutting contests, require practical skills for which competitors must have a good grasp of their lative heritage. Others, like the tnuckle hop, demand such high tolerance of pain, they were once banned by missionaries because of the potential for crippling and maiming. * * * THE KUNCKLE HOP requires getting down on all fours and hopping on the kunckles in battering push-up fashion. r ew men can stand the pain and the average distance covered by Eskimpas (hardened by subsistence living) is about 20 "eet.

"If you lose an ear, you lose! I n ear," reasoned one of his eammates. "In Inuvik we have man who carried 30 pounds in be ear weight contest and went 2 laps.

The world's record one-foot high kick is 8 feet, 3% inches, set by Mickey Gordon last year at the Canadian Winter Games. He did not arrive at the Olympics in time to compete in the event and Reggie Joule of Kotzebue took the trophy by kicking 7 feet, 10 inches. ALSO IN*LINE *for a trophy was Elizabeth Lampe, an Eskimo grandmother from Barrow I who skinned a seal in one minute, 27 seconds, and Roy Katai-|| roak, 17, of Barrow, who won he muktuk eating contest by 11 downing a sizable chunk of whale skin and fat in 20 sec-|| onds. Katairoak believes, with mostlj Sskimo athletes, that muktuk is| he breakfast of champions. "And a beer or two on occa-l sion never hurts, either," concludes Reggie Joule who really| akes his training seriously. Finley said he has 10 days in which to pay the fine, but hasn't decided yet if he will. However, Finley added that if he did pay the fine, he would do so under protest. The owner of the A's said he first heard of the reprimand and fine Friday in a letter from Kuhn. In New York, Kuhn issued a statement saying Finley was reprimanded and fined for r*- sioner's role in the Blue signing and (which) were found by the commissioner not to be in the best interests of baseball.' Answering Kuhn's charges, 22B of the major league rules provides that 'negotiations between player and club regarding the player's compensation under his conthact shall not be referrable to the commission- FAD'S A/OW Now you can borrow up to $7,500 SEASON CLEARANCE on HOMELITE LAWN MOWERS TRACTORS DEMONSTRATOR SALE Save 488.00 on a 1972 five door wagon.
