PH. 41111-3431 mid Outdoors wtih Miicli Action on Lake There were many events on Al* tow Lake Sunday stretching frotn Alton to Winfleld Locks and Dam. A boat parade prior to the annual Blessing of the Fleet at Our Lady of the Rivers/ Shrine at Portage des Sioux was a most Impressive sight. The boats, ranging in size from small runabouts tip to cruisers and houseboats, were In the parade line as far as the eye could see. Hundreds of boats passed by the Shrine during the ceremony while many others anchored off shore from the Shrine's causeway extending 650 feel out into Alton Lake. The Grafton American Legion's convention at Grafton drew thousands of persons, A feature attraction was the ski show presented by the Ski Pals of Alton. 'Dozens of beaches, exposed sandbars and submerged sand- ars in shallow waters had hundreds of bathers. Of course there Were numerous boats anchored near the bathers. The waters were quite choppy from so many craft. We rode with Hyron Klngery and Cninm Virgil Jennings of the Alton Motorboat Club, in the former's fast runabout. Fishing Motors Permitted Recently this column quoted a government report that no motors were permitted to be used on Devils Kitchen Lake in southern Illinois. Originally motors were banned but the ban was lifted last season, we were informed by 0. A. Frazer, author of the Downstate Fishermans Guide. Motors up to six horsepower are now permitted at Devils Kitchen as w e 11 as at Little Grassy Lake. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service representatives found rowing or paddling are lost arts and the boat docks concession- aire Was starving to death with his fleet of rowboats, Frazer pointed out. Hire is a ban on the use of minnows of any kind at Devils Kitchen Lake. Frazer says he was skunked on catching any bass In a recent two week period in the aforementioned waters.

The standings: NOBTiiEBN DIVISION W Hubbel Beats Cards In ^Greatest Game' SAN FRANCISCO (AP)-Hughie Critz slammed to center, Joe Moore scored from third and the New York Giants, 30 years ago today, beat the Gas House Gang of St. Louis 1-0. It was a game which winning pitcher Carl Hub- jell can never forget. For that duel on a warm afternoon before a huge crowd at the Polo Grounds lasted 18 innings and not one Cardinal reached first base on a walk. Only six got hits and 12 went down on strikes. "It probably was the greatest ;ame I ever pitched," recalled Hubbell, who has directed the farm system operations for the Giants ever since he pitched last in 1943. 'Frankie Frisch hit a couple of foul balls into the stands and so did Joe Medwick. I had. a little anxiety until those balls landed because they were in the seats and would have been home runs if fair." Now 60 and a member of Baseball's Hall of Fame, the left-handed Hubbell won acclaim and 253 games with his screwball that particularly baffled right-handed hitters. Hubbell vividly remembers the last of the 18th inning. Jesse Haines was pitching for the Cardinals in relief of Tex Carleton, who had worked 16 scoreless frames. "We got two on and one out and I was the batter. I hit a little grounder they tried to turn into a double play, but the ball wasn't hit hard enough, so I was on first.

The game lasted about 3 hours, 0 minutes. The Giant, who only tied for ixth the previous season, went on o win the pennant and beat Washington in the World Series, our games to one, as Hubbell itched two of the triumphs. Relaxing in his office at San Francisco's Candlestick Park, the Giants' home now, Hubbell said he didn't tire during that 18-inning tint. 'You don't notice it during the course of such a game. All that ension builds up nervous energy. About an hour after the game, I noticed it all right. That's the ongest I ever pitched." Yogi Berra Not Selected To All-Stars NEW YORK (AP)—New York Yankee catcher-coach Yogi Berra ailed to make the Americaj .eague All Star team this year breaking a string of 14 consecu ive seasons in which the stubby •eceiver has appeared in at leas one game. Berra, a three-time Most Valu able Player for the Yankees, firs was named to the All-Star tean n 1949, and has appeared in a least one All-Star attraction eacl year since. The 38-year-old catcher, who now doubles as a coach for the Yankees, is hitting only .196 in 26 games for the defending work champions. -He has been usec principally as a pinch hitter, ALTON PLAZA BARBER SHOP Harboring Complete Service Phpne 465.1352 No Appoint- inenl Needed!

The previous highest average was 38 nishels per acre in 1956. A number of farmers have reported y 1 e 1 ds above GO bushels and crops in the 40 and 50 bushel range are c o m- mon.

This was one reason the Wisconsin All-America end gave for signing to play professional football instead of mseball. Richter, No. 1 Washington draft ihoice, signed a contract with the National Football League Redskins last month after the Wisconsin baseball schedule was concluded. He signed for what is said to be the highest salary a Redskin rookie ever received, an istimated $21,000. "I got tired of baseball in those ast games before the season ended," he said at a news confer- nce Monday. "Some of those james lasted three or four hours. iVhen you go out to play football, play for an hour and its over —none of this extra inning business. Richter, who won nine letters n three sports during his college career, turned down several base- mil offers to sign with the Redskins. "I think you have more time :o get started on your off-season career with football," explained Richter. He has another semester of college to complete before reviving a degree as a landscape architect. He said he planned to try to jet a job with a local firm as soon as he graduates. His other-objections to basebal include the amount of travel and the 162-game schedule played in the major leagues. Chicago Cubs Again Beat Chisox, 4-2 CHICAGO (AP) — After taking a look at each other in their lighly successful annual summer exhibition meeting, the Chicago White Sox and the Chicago Cubs return to their respective leagues with hopes of remaining in contention. The Cubs, for the 10th time in 14 games, defeated the Sox 4-2 3efore a record crowd of 37,526 Proceeds of the game promote boys' baseball in the Chicago area. Dave Nicholson's two-run home run in the third accounted for the Sox runs. Billy Williams' two-run homerun in the fifth capped a winning three-run rally for the Cubs. The Sox departed for New York where they engage the Yankee in a four-game set, needing al four victories in order to taki over the American League lead The Yanks lead the Sox by 2V games.. The Sox will send Ray Herbert (8-4) against Al Downing (2-1) The Cubs will be home for a four-game series with the Nev York Mets.

Column Wheat Crop Expected To Set Yield Record tty TRUMAN W. MAV nd better seed, use of fertilizers, the increased better seedbed raise the required birds. Certain roducers are planning their re- laccments five years in advance, ut most of them find six to eight months sufficient. To prevent misunderstandings n d designate responsibilities vhen buying pullets, get all the etails in writing. Prices for started pullets vary. But most hateherymen are soling 20-week-old pullets for $1.70 o $2.10 each. Although price is mportanl, don't sacrifice quali- y for price. Disinfect the laying house at east two weeks before moving new pullets in. Since transporting nil lets puts a great stress on hem, every precaution should be aken to make the transition as easy as possible. With specialization becoming popular, producers should begin hlnking about started pullets as an alternative to raising t h e i r own. The Lamb Market Over-fat lambs will not a comparatively new y- Monon, soft variety from Indiana seeded lere for the first time in the fall of 1959, continued to be outstand- ng in yield. In the variety test plot grown by Jim Winet of Saine township in cooperation with he County Agricultural Extension Service, harvested last week, t yielded at the rate of 74.3 bushels per acre. Second in the test plot was Knox 62, a new strain of the well-known <nox variety developed for resis- ance to loose smut and Hessian ly. It made 66 bu. per acre. Third was Ottawa, a new hard wheat, vith 65.3 bu. Regular Knox and 'onca, a hard 'wheat, were fourth vith 63 bu. Other results in the test were Vermillion 61.6 bu., Redcoat and 5 avvnee 61, Omaha 58.3, Triumph >7.6 and Toscosa 54.3 b.u. The five soft wheats averaged 64.9 bu. and the six hard wheat •arieties averaged 59.7. Differences in test weight per jushel were minor, ranging from 61 to 63 pounds, The consistent high yields of the Wonon variety, along with its stifl straw and early maturity, wil undoubtedly cause more farmers to seed it this fall. It arid Vermillion are the most generally grown soft wheats being grown in the county, with Pawnee the mos common hard wheat. If Ottawa ranks high in other tests in this area, it will likely increase. Hen Replacement Started pullets have becom popular since specialization has :aken over in the egg busines Lack of time and facilities have caused many farmers to sto] raising replacements. Last year two million started pullets were placed in the state and three million are expectec this year.

Husbands never remember the time you repaired the TV set, and they never forget the time you burned the carrots." mild future markets. With red meat competition strong, the lamb eeder must be quality minded in lis production. Production testing, selection and breeding along with research should help produce lambs that retain quality in heavier carcass- is and grow faster and more economically. Producers might set up goals they want to attain and work toward attaining them. Three-inch oin eye, heavier carcasses that retain quality without being over- Einished, little external fat and Easter production are a few ideal ;oals that might be set up. Studies have found that slaugh- :er charges for a 150-pound lamb are essentially the same as charges for a 90-pound lamb. It appears :hat other evidence is also against smaller lambs. However, don't sacrifice quality for weight. Twilight Meeting twilight meeting for horseradish and sweetcorn growers be held the evening of July 1 at 6:30 p.m at the variety test >lots on the farm of William 3runs and Son in Nameoki township. Different varieties and methods of horseradish disease con- :rol will be demonstrated, with specialists of the Uniersity of Illinois on the program. The runs farm is on Sand Prairie road between Route 111 and CahoMa Mounds. All persons interested in horseradish and sweetcorn are invited. The ten highest milk-producing herds in the Madison County Dairy Herd Improvement Association for the last month oi testing were owned by Waldo Keilbrach, J. W Autery, C. C.

Highest wheat yield reported to date was a field of 6 acres of Mon on wheat that made 88 bu, pe acre, grown by Robert Marinko of Leef township. There is no such tiling as official farm crop yields, of course, but this jusi might be the largest wheat yield ever produced in Madison Coun ty on a field large enough to be significant. It certainly is a lot of wheat. The field was well-fertilized.
