FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 1954 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Country With HAROLD BRAND Outlet for Although Judge William G Long, Seattle, Wash., has hand led 45.000 juvenile cases during the past 20 years, he was unable to recall a single case of serious juvenile conduct involving youngster whose hobby was fish ing, according to a report from the Illinois' Federation of Sports men's Clubs. Judge Long contended tha youngsters respond when given an opportunity to hike, fish am climb, and go wrong only be cause thry have nothing else to do. Crowded cities seldom offer an outlet for children's abundan energies and their hunger for ad venture, and that is why many of them turn to stealing cars am burglary, he concluded. The Federation reports tha the same expression has been repeated by nearly all leaders in juvenile delinquency fields. More effort should be made to encourage fishing as a hobby for young sters and also provide them ac cessible places to fish. Fishing Discourages Uellnqulncj Large cities have an enormou: problem in providing transpor tation to and from fishing waters for their children. Alton is more fortunate because of the Missis sippi River, Boy Scout Lake, am the Alton-Wood River Sports men's Club Lake, which young sters can reach by bus or on their bicycles. It is less expensive and better morally to provide lakes anc access for youngsters than to build juvenile detention homes and pay extra police, suggestec the Federation. William G. Osborn, Green wood Lane, Godfrey, and Fret Norton Jr., 1526 State St., launch ed their speedboat last week anc had some difficulty starting the engine after its winter storage On Sunday they made a trial run in Alton Lake and adjusted the motor so that it is now running perfectly. The men have been partners in the boat since 1950 Edward Rice, 3216 Clifton Ave., has a favorite fish story in which he theoretically likes to believe that a large spoonbil catfish was caught by him, ? few years ago. He was fishing in the Mississippi River southeast of Alton with a throw ^Jjne and received';* large strike;'The 'line became snagged as he pulled i; in to shore. After several minutes of ua successfully trying to release the line, it snapped. A short time lat er Rice walked downstream to another fisherman who had a large spoonbill catfish lying on the bank. The fisherman tolc Rice that the fish had been in jured apparently and swam close into shore so that he was able to club it-'and. land it. Rice examined the fish and saw where a hook might have been jerked loose recently from its mouth. Although the fisher man offered the spoonbill to Rice, he did not accept it. How ever, Rice believes that the fisl had been on his snagged line a •hort time before. St. Louis Singers Will Give Program Sunday Childe Singers of St. Louis wil present a program at St. John's.
