Location of Interstate In Dispute SPRINGFIELD (UPI) - The governors of Illinois, Missouri and Kentucky will take a hand in deciding the route of an interstate highway that will link St. Louis.. Mo., with Nashville, Tettn. Representatives of the highway departments in each of the states have not been able to get together on the proposed location of Interstate 24. Illinois has rejected the report of an independent engineering consulting firm about where the highway should be. The Missouri Highway Department agrees with the report that the highway should bypass most of Illinois and enter Missouri from Kentucky. Illinois says it should run up Southern Illinois and then on into St. Louis. Kentucky reportedly favors the Illinois plan. Gov. Otto Kerner of Illinois met with Govs. John M. Dalton of Missouri and Bert T. Combs of Kentucky at the recent 55th annual •Governors' Conference at Miami Beach over the location of Interstate 24. Nothing was received and the governors tentatively are planning to meet again. Assistant Highway Engineer Theodore F. Morf of Illinois said the states would have to agree on a route and submit it to the U.S. Bureau of Public Roads before any work could be done on the highway. The bureau is expected to approve the route when the states concur. Wilbur Smith and Associates, a consulting firm, released a report this summer that evaluated 21 possible routes for the highway. Its choice was a route that would dip Interstate 24 only briefly into Southern Illinois before Unking it with Interstate 55 south of Cape OUR ANCESTORS tor "I atill iay, mon, that's a br-ratty aiiay way to play golf!" 0ldat40,50,60?

The Illinois Highway Division rejected the report and pushed for a route that would take Interstate 24 into Metropolis, 111., and northward to Pulley's Mill in southern Williamson County where it would join with Interstate 57 near Mount Vernon and then follow Interstate 64 west into St. Louis. Morf said factors that will ultimately decide the highway's final route included its over-all cost, length, the various benefit ratios and available facilities, such as bribes and rights-of-way. Morf said the U.S. Bureau of Public Roads has set no "deadline" for the states to work out their differences but he said "the sooner it is settled, the better it will be."

He is following in the footsteps of Ws father and grandfathers who fished the same place with the same tools for many years. The unusual solid-stone fishing ground is the Bolca "pool," a petrified lake deep inside a mountain. The fish are fossils millions of years old, from the Eocene period when great floods from the Mediterranean covered much of Europe and the mighty Alps had not yet risen. Massimiliano has been at his unusual fishing for 27 years. Like his father and grandfathers before him, the catch earns him a good living. Out of the rock in tunnels cut deep beneath Monte Postale and Vallecco Peak in the Val d'Alpone, Massimiliano has picked out more- than 10,000 fossils. Two thousand of them are in museums around the world. He has found 200 types of fish, 80 kinds of sea plants, more than 100 varieties of molusks and crustaceans — and even one rare six-foot crocodile. Museums pay well for them. The petrified fish from the stone lake of Bolca are not mere skeletons. They are often found petrified whole, with their colors still showing. Scientists say the Bolca lake must have been a calm-water fish feeding paradise, 60 to 150 feet deep, close to shore and perhaps protected within an atoll.

Slime Molds Show After Heavy Rains Don't be too concerned if slime molds appear suddenly after heavy rains of watering. These molds creep amoeba-like on low- lying vegetation, such as lawns, bedded flowers, mulches and strawberries, during warm weather, said Fulton County Farm Adviser Leo Sharp. The fungi feed on decaying organic matter, plus other fungi and bacteria. The mold's color may vary from watery - white, gray, cream to yellow, orange, red, violet, bluish-gray, green or brown. And though the fungi are unsightly, they merely use plant leaves and steVns for support, rather than causing a said Sharp. Slight damage occur if leaves are smothered shaded for several days to a or longer. Patches of flfald enlarge to a diameter of setttt feet. ' \ If slime molds endanger veg* tation, Sharp suggested breakiflt up the unsightly spore masses by vigorous raking, brushing or hof* ing down with a stream of watef. In the lawn, mowing the graa% usually removes them. Spraying the lawn with a turf fungicide tQ control other diseases should also control slime molds. Several good fungicides are available; follow the label directions. For more details on slim* molds, ask for Report on Plant Diseases No. 401 at the county extension office.
