He must, because he works on them all day, five days a week. The sad part is that he never gets to enjoy the best part of boating-gliding down a river or lake on a beautiful sunny day. '·'I just can't go out on the river," said Medley. "Too many people recognize me. And when they spot me in the water, they come over and tell me about a problem they're having with their boat. I don't have the heart to tell them I can't help them, so I just stay out of the water. If 1 want to relax. I go to the mountains." Medley is the top boat mechanic at Mitch's Marina in St. Albans. He has been working on boats since 1957. One of these days, he might catch up with the ever- present backlog of broken down boats. "We're about two months behind right now. "said Medley. Mitchell Sadd, owner of Mitch's Marina, says Medley is one of the best in the business. "I've known people to come over 100 miles away to have Ed work on their boat." Economy Marine in Charleston and 0. V. Smith and Sons in Big Chimney, the other two boat dealerships in the area, also have expert boat mechanics. But most boat owners will tell there just isn't enough mechanics to go around. Getting maintenance work done is a serious problem to boat owners in this area. If you don't believe the mechanics are busy, just try calling one on the phone during the day. * * * ONE OF THE problems for boat dealers is that they can't hire many more mechanics than they now carry because while the summer is extremely busy, there isn't enough boat work to be done in the winter to justify having more help. Good boat mechanics also are hard to find. The three dealerships in the Kanawha Valley take,care of their own customers . first, which make it particularly hard on 1 people who buy boats in another area as well as used boat purchasers.

T- Roche, Durr Win Mixed WIMBLEDON, England (AP) - Veterans Tony Roche of Australia and Francoise Durr of France won the mixed doubles title at the W i m b l e d o n Tennis Championships for the first time, beating Dick Stockton of Dallas and Rosie Casals of San Francisco 3-6. 6-2, 7-5 Saturday. OAKLAND (AP) - Chris Evert, women's champion at Wimbledon, and Billie J e a n K i n g , a s i x - t i m e W i n b l e d o n singles queen, could face each other July 10 in the second World Team Tennis East-West AllStar match at the Oakland Coliseum. Miss Evert, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. and a member of the WTT's Phoenix Racquets, is a member of the West team, coached by Frew McMillan, player-coach of the Gofde Caters. Ms. King, who elected not to defend her Wimbledon crown this year, plays for the WTT's New York Sets and will represent the East, coached by Fred Stolle of New York. North Wins (Continued From Page IE) The South rose for one of the few times in the game on the next play when Bart Batten, who was an alternate selection for the game, broke loose for an 88-yard kickoff return to cut the lead to 8-6. It was probably the only really exciting play of the game. Bart and Brad provided a brother combination for the South from St. Albans. Terry Spangler of Seth tried to run in the two extra points which would have tied the score but the North defense saved the day--something it did all evening. Tinker Jackson of Buckhannon led the North with 40 yards in 15 carries. Crislip completed six of eight passes with Kreider picking off four. Easley, who was used sparingly in the first half, finished with 42 yards in 12 tries. South coach John Chmara of Bluefield chose 'n alternate three players at quart- erbac! hile North coach Wayne Jamison of Bridi^port decided to stick with Crislip, a move which appeared to give the North more continuity on its offense. The crowd probably was held down by the rain which fell throughout the day but stopped in time to leave a pleasant evening weather-wise. The sportsmanship between the players left something to be desired as several scuffles broke out during the game and penalty flags were flying all night. While the official flags were flying, the American flag wasn't when the National Anthem was being played. A Bicentennial blunder left the flag pole bare while the band played the anthem and the crowd stared at the pole. The flag, however, was raised in time for the second half.

SMith and Sons, Donnie Staats, stays constantly busy as the chief boat mechanic. "We're only about two weeks behind here," said Staats, who has been working on boats since 1963 and has two helpers at 0. V. Smith. Staats has a particular concern for boaters who run into mechanical problems during a vacation visit to this area. · "None of the dealers in this area will do anything to help the stranded boat owners from out of state," said Staats. "They are put at the end. of the line with the other boat owners. I believe the people who come from out of state should be given special consideration." As with the other boat dealers, Staats and his crew service only the boats they sell with rare exceptions. "We just don't have enough help to take on new customers," said Staats. "But if we sold the boat, we'll service it regardless of how many owners it has." . Staats said working on boats can be aggravating profession, which may be why there aren't a lot of good boat mechanics available. "There is a lot of corrosion in boat engines from being in the water," Staats explained, "and that makes them difficult to work on. The last mechanic I trained quit and went to the mines." Boat mechanics stay busy until December getting boats ready for the winter. There is a special procedure recommended for "winterizing" boats such as changing the oil, running storage seal through the carberator and opening all drain holes to keep the engine from freezing. Medley says a boat engine should last 20 years with proper maintenance. The head mechanic at Economy Marine in Charleston is Earl Holt. "He's been at it for 28 years," said Fritz Howard, who owns the dealership. Family Enjoys Outing on Kanawha Boating Fast Growing Sport Here Increase in Boats Causing Safety Problem on Kanawha IOC Threat Apparently Forgotten The controversy over Taiwan's participation in the Summer Olympics in Montreal continued Saturday but threats by the International Olympic Committee to withdraw sponsorship and by the United States to withdraw its team were apparently dead. An IOC spokesman was quoted Thursday as saying the organization, angered by the Taiwan situation, was considering withdrawing support from the Games, a move which would have reduced ' the whole business to "just another track meet," in the words of United States Olympic Committee spokesman Bob Paul". The United States said it wanted no part of such a competition and threatened to pull out if the IOC withdrew its support. But Lord Killanin, IOC President, announced Friday that the Committee had no intention of pulling out of the Games and had never "even suggested privately it would take such action." That statement seemed to satisfy U.S. officials. "Since the president of the IOC has clarified his position that thIIOC will not withdraw recognition, sanction or patronage of the Games, there should no longer be a question of U.S. team participation in Montreal." The situation which triggered the IOC and USOC threats remained usettied. Glen Shortliffe, a spokesman for Canada's Internal Affairs Department, kicked off this latest Olympic controversy Thursday when he announced that Taiwan's athletes would not be allowed to compete in the Games as Nationalist China. Canadian officials said the Tawianese would not be permitted to fly their flag or play their anthem. The restrictions were the result of Canada's attempts to improve relations with the People's Republic of China. Canada recognizes the People's Republic of China--Red China--and does not recognize the Republic of China--Taiwan. Negative reaction to the Canadian government's action continued to pour in Saturday. The International Amateur Athletic Federation and the International Judo Federation, both based in London, issued protests, joining a host of other groups in berating Canada for injecting politics into the Olympics. The IOC and the USOC have already protested the move. Killanin is expected in Montreal Monday and will probaMy confer rim; cnmmiit 3-4 including two doubles; feenan w ; with Canadian officials about thc'iove. Scars ** A "« n M including double.

As a final measure to enforce safety rules, boat owners are studying measures to require licensing for the operators. "Most of the problems deal with lack of knowledge of the river," said Bob Phillips, captain of the Great Kanawha River Navy, a private boat owners club. "This could bring the state legislation to enact licensing." Safety schooling 'is voluntary and Captain Harry Shaver of the Division of Law Enforcement of the Department of Natural Resources, said the national trend is to keep the schooling this way. Shaver reported that 23,000 licenses have been issues statewide this year, which is a 7,000 increase compared to figures from the last two years. He believes this figure will rise dramatically this summer. "There must be close to 500 boats on the river on nice weekends," said Phillips. "This is getting too dangerous for everyone." »- MRS. BARBARA RUBY, commander of the St. Albans Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla, directs safety classes for boaters and provides boat inspections which are authorized by the Coast Guard. "Lack of courtesy is the biggest problem," she said. "Ignorance of the law is the second." The St. Albans Auxiliary is not a law enforcement agency but is authorized to give boat inspections to determine if state and federal standards are met. The results of these inspections are not relayed to law enforcement authorities. Auxiliary members check boats for certification compliance, proper engine ventilation, wiring, light, number of life preservers and for a proper registration card. "We have to be schooled and tested on five exams before we can administer the inspections," Mrs. Ruby said. She reported that over the Memorial Day weekend the group inspected 80 boats. "I know we failed more than we passed but this gives us the chance to see the boat operators again," she said. The auxiliary will perform the inspections at any river location or at the home of the boat owners. Coast Guard units from the Marine Safety Office patrol the Kanawha River two evenings a week and conservation officers, along with the St. Albans Auxiliary, patrol on weekends. Last year, 507 persons were arrested for safety violations. The most common violation involves boaters having too few life preservers on board. State law requires one life vest for , every person on a boat. Tow boats present another problem for boaters and Phillips emphasized that these boats do not have any brakes. Captains need a half mile to stop these boats. »· "A TOW BOAT must stay in the channel." Phillips said. "Skiers who get too close, must realize that barges can't stop." "This is getting dangerous for everybody," he said. "Part of the responsibility is to obey the rules of the river and not to criss-cross in front of other boaters." Boaters are also responsible for the wake from their boats and damage to the Kanawha River bank and toother boater's property is increasing this y?ar. Phillips said with the influx of new boaters, many fail, to realize there is a 5 mile- per-hour limit in loading areas. He said damage has been extensive to boats that are moored. "The Coast Guard does not have enough manpower to man the river," Phillips said. "Boating is just increasing by leaps and bounds."
