TWENTY ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, APRIL 22, 1954 flieer ftipptr* Current Events on Alton Lake ond Roamin' the Piasa Country With HAROLD BRAND THp and rain handicsped a fishinfr trip to RPP!- foOt Lake, near Tiptonvillr, Term., for six men recently. They managed to land about 80 crappir and channel raffish despite the weather. Ixniis Schwcgel. 520 E. fourth St., pointed out that a new la\v there allows a daily limit of 30 rrappie and bluegill and ten bass. Previously there had been no limit on some species of fish. Others in the group were .Tames Gorman. 2638 Grandview Ave., Charles Bund, 826 Spruce St., Daniel (Bud> Tlemann Ridgedale Dr., Paul McClintock 1220 Douglas St., and Herbert Tauscher, Christopher, IU. Confused Fish Nearly every angler knows that bass feed on minnows and bluegill on worms, but apparent' ly, some of the fish themselves don't know it, related Mrs. Forrest (Goldie) Payne, 526 Williams St. She and her husband fished in waters near Eldred on one occasion and she caught two bass which struck on worms and a large bluegill which bit on a minnow. Last Sunday, two more bass struck on worms for Mrs. Gus Bechdolt, 99 E. Elm St., Who went fishing with her husband in waters near Eldred also. Bechdoldt landed a sunflsh and a goggle eye. A five-pound bass was landed by the Rev. T. Harris of Fosterburg in a private pond near his home last week. Few anglers have been fortunate enough to land such a large bass, according to other fishermen. Unfounded Reports Ralph Huette of Woodburn and his brother-in-law, Renus Baker of Fosterburg. decided to take their wives fishing at Gillespie Lake where they had heard some fabulous reports about the wonderful fishing. Kuette even purchased a certain type casting plug on which he heard the fish were striking. The two couples began the drive to Gillesple last Saturday morning but as they neared Staunton, the women decided to do a little shopping. As eager as the men were to get to the lake, they had to wait while the women strolled leisurely through Uic stores. Finally they arrived at the Jake and began fishing.intensely with little success. The only fish landed was a small crappie by Mrs. Baker, who also had a new pair of gloves and Easier bonnet to show for her day's effort. Since then, the couples have heard that the fish are striking at Staunton Lake and plan to go there next weekend. However, the women will take a lunch this time, because their husbands were so intent on fishing that they failed to buy thorn dinner. Warning Krcclved Tliis column was Cautioned hy Curt Robertson, 637 Washington Ave., East Alton, nol to become involved with any difference o[ opinion with residents of Georgia such as has occured with Kentucky or Florida. Georgians won' 1 write letters like the" resident.- of the latter two states but wil come in person, he said. Well now — if this column should ever cause some of those famous Georgia peaches—ettthe. kind—to arrive in Alton, we are sure that we can provide a recep tion committee of handsome young fellows or newspaper men Martha Wright Potential Star Of Video Song By C. E. IHJTTKKI'IEU) NEW YORK /P-From my sea it looks like Martha Wright, trip vision's newest singer, will cslab lish herself on TV with the sam. ease she displayed in conquering other fields in show business. The program on ABC-TV somewhat reminiscent of the sue cessful Dinah Shore show, which hac been running for some time on NBC-TV. Martha does most of thi singing, but has the help of th Melodiers quartet and B o b b ; Hackett's orchestra. For her second program nex Sunday night, Martha will have a guest Ray Middleton. who sanj with her In "South Pacific" 01 Broadway. My only complaint about the n<:> show is this: Why doos her aut sponsor give her the extra assign ment of doing the commercials Seems to me the songs are enough Jn accordance with advanc scheduling, television will have it cameras in the midst of thing, for full coverage of the openin sessions of the Senate committee hearings on the McCaithy-Arm> dispute at Washington Thursday The telecast is due to begin a 9:30 a.m. (CST), recessing wben the committee does and returning fur the afternoon session.
