81XTK&N ALTON WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 3,1H00 •ft* Outdoor* Obituaries S, D. Keyser Boating Vacations Boatowners shouldn't have any problems of where to go and what to do on their vacations. Our Inland waterways offers unlimited range for boats of any stee from outboards up to large cruisers. Operators of smaller crsft may camp along the way and .prepare meals ashore or go into riverside towns overnight Cruiser owners have nearly al the accomodations of home am can anchor In a, cove or other wise protected area at night. A five day voyage from Har bor Point Yacht Club to Kentucky Lake and return was enjoyed by Kenneth Peters, his wife Dixie, and daughters, Kathy, 12 and Sally 9, last week. The fam lly left here at 5:36 a.m. on the previous Saturday and spent the night at Paducah, The next day they arrived at the Kenlake Hotel on Kentucky Lake. The family left there last Wednesday at noon and spent the night at Cairo and arrived at Alton Locks and Dam Thursday evening at 9 p.m. The Peters have a 25-ft. inboard cruiser and didn't have any mechanical nor navigation difficulties. Injured Foot "We had a minor mishap when we pulled the signal chain to lock through the dam," Peters related. "My wife attempted to fend the boat off the lock wal in the rough waters and .her fool was caught between the boat and wall. After arriving home, we went to the hospital and fortunately found that her foot wasn't broken. It was a fine trip otherwise and we recommend it to all other skippers." Southern Voyage A 1,000-mile voyage in six days from Chain of Rocks Bridge to Nashville, Tenn., was completed last Thursday by members of the Bowline Boat Club. The fleet of five sleeper-type outboard craft traveled on the Mississippi, Ohio and Cumberland rivers. Although the skippers and passengers slept aboard, they prepared their meals ashore. The group included the Ray Simmons, the Harry Beavers and son, the Harry Jeffries, Sid Daugherty and Louis Rushing. The fleet ran through pleasant weather all the way and only had a few threats of rain. They traveled 250 miles the first day. "When we were ashore preparing a meal at Dover, Tenn., the wake from a passing tow washed our anchored craft ashore and damaged some of them," Daugherty related.."We had no other difficulties except a few fouled spark plugs. We locked through one dam on the Ohio River and seven on the Cumberland River. Our fleet used 900 gallons of gasoline and 180 quarts of oil." Squirrel Hunting Season Opens There seems to be some confusion about squirrel hunting season dates and this office has received* numerous calls. Squirrel season in the southern zone is from Aug. 1, through Oct. 15. In the northern zone the season is from Sept. 1, to Oct. 27. The latter season was ended on that date so that squirrel hunters will not be afield when the deer hunters open their season. The bag limit for squirrrls is five a day with a possession limit of 10. Madison, Jersey, Calhoun and Bond Counties are in the Greene, Southern Zone. Macoupin, and Pike, Mong- gomery counties are in the northern zone. It is unlawful to take white squirrels at any time. Harold Stiritz, Godfrey opened the season Monday and bagged a single squirrel in the Piasa Bottoms. Stiritz says that all indications show that there is a good crop of squirrels this season and hunters may expect to do as well or better than last year.
