PAGE ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH SATURDAY, APRIL 10, 1954 Coimfry With HAROLD BRANH Jlsh Local trout fishermen must seek distant waters to pursue their favorite species of fish because trout reproduce- rarely in Illinois streams. However, the Illinois Conservation Department has released 35,000 trout of legal size or larger recently in 12 northwestern counties to provide some fishing for 10,000 trout anglers. Experiments reveal there arc a few rock bottomed, spring fed streams which may sustain trout jn central and southern Illinois for a short time, according to Sam Parr, state fisheries chief. Some trout were placed successfully in deep strip mines also to see if they can withstand scorching summer temperatures. Trout are unable to live in waiter of more than 72 degrees temperature and prefer much cooler water with high oxygen content provided through tumbling or aeration over rocks, Parr said. The season opened April 1, and will continue tbrough Sept. 30. Waterfowl Management Planned Lewis E. Martin, assistant director of conservation, attended a meeting of the southern zone organization of the Illinois Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs at the Alton-Wood River Sportsman's Club in Godfrey Sunday to discuss the management program of waterfowl hunting areas. He imported that local sportsmen's interest is centered in the Stump Patch and Batchlown area whereas his department is concerned with the overall management of 65,000 acres of bottom lands along the Mississippi River from Alton to Rock Island. "I am sure that as everyone gains a better understanding of everyone's problem," Martin wrote, "there will be a gradual crystallization of a management plan that will be workable and popular with the majority of sportsmen interested in waterfowl hunting." A public hearing will be scheduled in the future so that all factors in the program will be brought forth and given due consideration, he concluded. Personal Note* Lyle Brown of Gorfrey said that there is an old Indian legend in New York, "when apple blossoms fall into streams the 1 trout will bite." Two anglers heard the legend, bought some confetti which they scattered in a stream, and then they caught the limit of trout in record time. Paul Mitchell, 911 Quincy Ct., tried trout fishing in an ice-cold Missouri stream some years ago. He landed two trout while wading' into the knee-deep water but only after he had slipped and faUen head-over-heels into the stream. That experience concluded his career as a trout fisherman, Mitchell said. Alvin W. McDonald, 827 Hawley Ave., said that he has heard so many fish stories lately, he ' may try the sport himself this coming season. Emil Werner. 2315 Birch Ave., is using his spare time reconditioning his cruiser so that he can launch it later this month. He plans to add more conveniences to his boat for this coming season. Loiv Budget Is Affecting Radio's Summer Plans NEW YORK ff— Radio's summer plans are being affectod by that increasingly bothersome fact of life, the low budget. The trouble stems from television competition, which is making the older air medium more and more conscious of cost. One method used to meet the problem is to consolidate several program periods into a block, head the show with a name personality, and set him to playing records and the like. An example is the "Road Show," a four-hour program on NBC Saturday afternoons. Bill Cullen steps from his normal role as quizmaster to do all sorts of chores: Reading road bulletins, wise cracking, playing records and keeping up with the news. Now NBC is getting ready with another, a Sunday night two-hour block in which Dave Garroway will get the big assignment. It will be in addition to.his TV "Today" five mornings a \veek and his Friday night TV variety. Tht pattern will be similar to "Today." Jim Fleming, who used to be on "Today," will help out. It will be called "Sunday With Garroway," Include live and recorded interviews, news and recorded music. NBC also has several other two- hour programs, including the "Weekend Review" on SwuJ*y afternoons and the "Big Review" with guest disc jockeys on Saturday nights. Read Telegraph Want A4s Daily!
