K film-Ring Ilnrbnr "After rurri-nt dredging operations are rornpleter] in the boat harlior al f'fre Marquette Park, slips ;ind dofks will he built to arrommodale up to about 300 lioats. including a few r-niisers," i fluted H:irrv Kiilkrvson Sr. ( KiibH Hotel. (li-flHon. roncession- «ire who hns operated the harbor lor several yen is. "Dorks \\ill I.e rnntt-d to boat m\rii>r«< on a daily, weekly or monthly basis and we are accepting some r-rftft now, although the dredging uill reqi'iro another four tn six weeks," rontinued Fulkerson Sr. "There will be no charge for launching a boat in the harbor but there will be a watchman's service fnt> if the briHl is anchored ovei-nighl." Operators of the dredge are having some difficulties with dp- bris previously thrown into the harbor by persons who have enjoyed oulingo in the adjacent park grounds. Cans, bottles and oilier objects clog the suction pipe on the dredge and much time is required to clean it out. I'nssfhle New Liuineliing Site. Fulkerson Sr., is considering a plan to move- the launching ramp from the front of the refreshment siimrl lo ground on the opposite side of Ihe harbor. A fill is being marie by the dredge and a road imiy he built on It lending to the proposed launching ramp. Daily speedboat rides and charter trips from Ihe harbor are operated by Fulkerson Sr., also. Gasoline and oil is available for boat owners at the harbor. .Mushroom Kinds A group of mushroom hunters found three bushels of the choice morsels last Friday in river bottom lands near Mo/itr. Only three hours wore required to find the mushrooms by Mayor Ivan Kramer of Wood River, his brother, K. C. Kramer, 328 Dry St., and their acquaintances, Mr. and Mrs. Loren Fox of Mo/.icr. While seeking hiding places in which to place eggs for an egg hunt in Godfrey Saturday, Fred Storm, 1411 Seminary St.. found n pound of mushrooms and was well pleased. IMentifiil Clinic Often, hunters have to seek game long and hard, but Joe Stock, 2000 Agnes Ave., can recall that game was so plentiful during his youth on a farm in northern Iowa, that seldom more than an hour was required to hag the limit in pheasants, rabbits or ducks. Me .said that pheasants joined the barnyard fowl often at feeding time and it never was any trouble to provide a quick meal of «(ime. However, because the hunt ing was so easy, Stock said that he never had any interest in the sport then or since. <«.V|>N.V Cruise Welcome Judge Lee Manks of Hardin wrote that the Mayor 1here and the manager of the American Legion grounds snid that the pilots and their passengers who participate in the gypsy cruise from Alton to Hardin on Sunday, May HO, will be welcome. All boatowuers are invited 1o join the cruise sponsored by Ihe Piasa Boating Association. The cruise will begin at 9 a.m. in waters adjacent to the west end of MeAdnms Highway. The Association would appreciate it if boat owners register for the trip by writing to 311 \V. Broadway or telephoning 2-0541.
