FRIDAY, JUNE 28, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE b 1FTEEN River 1 anil with Harold Brand The advantage of a boatowner in beingable to read weather signs is explained by Bob Brewstor, boating writer for the Kiekhaefer Corp., Fond du lac, Wis. Old- timers were often killed at reading the many indicators of what weather is ahead. Directions of Storms Thanks to the scientific advances in weather prediction of recent years, most people seldom have to rely on the lore that grandfather employed to avoid being caught in a rainstorm. But what do you do when you're out of touch with U.S. Weather Bureau reports, as so often happens to outboard boaters? Do what grandfather did, say veteran boating authorities. Take a good look at the signs nature has to offer, then apply some of his maxims. A surprising amount of his "do it yourself" forecasting has been proven out by modern science. The familiar quatrain, "Rainbow in the morning, sailor take warning; rainbow at night, sailor's delight," is pretty accurate, for example. So is the other common version which substitutes t h e words "red sky" for "rainbow." In the case of the rainbow it should be remembered that storm usually move from west to east. So a morning rainbow would be seen in the west — where a storm is brewing. An evening rainbow would be seen in the east within a storm that has already passed. Often Reliable Signs "Evening red and morning gray are certain signs of a fine day," may be a bit too positive, but. is generally regarded as accurate by the experts. Ditto for, "When the dew is on the grass, rain will never come to pass. When Grass is dry at morning light, look for rain before the night." Dew will only form when the atmosphere is clear and the air is dry. Animals and vegetation can give many weather clues to the observant boater. When leaves show their undersides, it's because of a sudden shift in wind direction which usually precedes rain. Large numbers of birds perches on lines or flying low foretell a storm. This is because the less dense, low pressure air accociat- ed with poor weather makes it more difficult for birds to fly. While these signs are usually reliable, it's best to check on official weather reports whenever possible to be on the safe side. Four-year-olds won the most money in harness racing in 1962. Pacer Henry T. Adios earned $220,302 and trotter Duke Rodney won $206,113. STRANGER SMILES CLEVELAND — Bill Eggers, a 30-year-old professional from Henderson, Nev., cools off in the clubhouse after shooting a 33-33-66 to share the first round lead with Gary Player and Bo Winninger in the $110,000 Cleveland Open. Eggers, who is virtually unknown on the pro circuit, winning only $1,612 this year, was thrilled with his round in 90-plus-degree weather at the Beechmont County Club. (AP Wire- photo) Darkhorse Paces Cleveland Open CLEVELAND (AP)— They may not be up there at the finish, but two colorful newcomers to upper bracket golf are creating an early furor in the $110,000 Cleveland Open.

Playei lias won $44,000 this year, Wininger more than $13,000 and Eggers a mere $1,612, which hasn't come close to paying his expenses.

The White Sox scored three runs — enough to win — in the first inning. Mike Heeshberger beat out a dribbler and took second when Bouton threw wild. Bouton then hit Tom Me Craw with a pitch and Pete Ward singled to fill the bases. Floyd Robinson then singled two of his mates home and Ward scored while Charlie Maxwell grounded into a double play. The Sox added single runs in the second, fourth and fifth innings to round out a 10-hit attack. Marilyn Smith Leads PGA BROOKVILLE, N.Y.

Reaction Mixed To Receptions Given Kennedy WASHINGTON (API—The acclaim given President Kennedy in Europe was welcomed by congressional leaders today, but Re- Dublicans cautioned against weighing the lasting success of he trip until all the results are in —particularly from France. HouseSpeakor John McCormack D-Mass., voiced the general Democratic feeling that the President's tour had made "a profound impression conducive to furthering he national interests of our country and those of Europe." The assistant Democratic lead• of the Senate, Hubert H rlumphrey of Minnesota, saw the President's trip as "vindicating all the doubts and dire predictions that assailed him before his departure." Humphrey said he considered the Kennedy restatements of U.S policy "direct answers to the most damaging arguments" ol President Charles de Gaulle of France. Senate Republican Leader Everett Dirksen of Illinois agreec that the President had been "wel corned with open arms and lis tened to in Germany as the Pros ident of the United States shoulc have been." Dirksen said he hoped tha "good results will flow" from the trip, but warned against speculat ing on the President's success in "trying to patch up certain situa tions." House Republican Leadei Charles A. Halleck of Indiana saic he had no quarrel with the trip was happy about the acclaim anc wished the President "every pos sible success that is in the cards.' one stroke back of Miss Kimball each with 72s.
