3W& 5, 1083 ItMli Outdoors with tlttfottl Brand A. J. VUOIMAN Soilless Carp An unusual specie of fish lor this area was caught by A. Jf. Vromun, 211 Goulding Ave., East Alton, during a fishing trip with his son, Martin Vromnn, St. Charles, 111., In the Fox River In northern Illinois, last week. The fish Is apparently a carp but has a skin similar to a catfish over 90 per cent of its body while about only 10" per cent was covered with scales. The fish Is 12 inches long. One theory Is that the fish lost most of its scales possibly at a flnger- Ung and grew a tough hide in place. The senior Vroman and his son also caught many other fish Including a 12-pound carp and and many small catfish. He is 77 years old and retired 12 years ago. Since then he spends several days a week fishing in various waters. His wife, Mary, drives their station wagon and they often spend the night in it while fishing. Mrs. Ruth Wilkinson, 1400 E. Fourth St., heard about the fish taken by Vroman and says its a German carp. Big Goldfish A 2%-pound goldfish was taken below the spillway in the Cahokia (Hartford) Canal recently by Jess Farley, 406 Rose Ave., South Roxana. He tried unsuccessfully to keep the fish alive and will now have it stuffed. His wife accompanied him on the fishing trip and they landed several other fish including carp and catfish averaging from one to 1% pounds. Frog Season Frog season is underway in Illinois and continues through Aug. 31. The daily and possession limit is eight frogs and It is unlawful to take them with fire- arms 61- alfguns. Most pefsons take frogs at flight using a strong beam .of light from a flashlight Tills writer has had some Success IH daytlnle by using a flshlwg pole and dangling a wotttt-balted hook ttt front of the afflphlblati. Fishermen and Oampott 0. A. Prater of the Downstate Fishermans Guide says that many fish are being taken In lakes and streams of Southern Illinois. The waters Include Little Grassy, Crab Orchard, Devils Kitchen, Lake of Egypt, Lusk and Grant Pierre Creeks. About 150 camping families In tents and trailers recently spent a weekend at Little Grassy Lake. One camper put 298 crappie on ice. Crowds of campers also visited Devils Kitchen Lake, Frazer concluded. Entered Ski Contest Several members of the Alton Water Ski Club entered the Land of Lincoln open Water Ski Tournament last weekend at Springfield, 111. More than 100 skiers from six states entered the many events making It stiff competition. Jim Benson jumped 107 feet off the ski ramp while Eddlo Bock- liolt, both of the Alton Club, scored 36 feet. Betty Norman placed fourth in the Women's Slalom event and fifth in the Women's Jumping contest. "The Club is planning to enter many tournaments this year, including the Illinois State Tourna ment on Aug. 2 and 3," announced Melvta Unterbrlnk, 2347 Fairview Ave., club president. "Anyone interested in competing in the tournaments may contad Tom King, 409 Augusta Ave., for jiformation." Safe Boating Week This is National Safe Boating week and according to William T. Lodge, Director of Conservation for Illinois, boating is becoming safer on the state's waters. About 101,000 boats were registered in Illinois in 1960, and in that year, 60 fatal boating accidents were re ported. In 1963, 150,000 boats were registered but fatal accidents dropped to 31. "We credit the decrease in the 'atality rate to education in safe >oat handling and improved law enforcement," Lodge said. "The Illinois Boating Council, whose membership includes the Illi- lois Department of Conservation, U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, U.S. Power Squadrons, Outboard Boating Club of America, and mane dealers associations instituted safe boating classes that were attended by 27,270 persons last year." McKinley Wins Wimbledon Tennis Title WIMBLEDON, England (AP) Chuck McKinley, the bouncy belter from St. Louis, crushed Australia's Fred Stolle 9-7, 6-1, 6-4, today and became the first American to win the, men's singles title of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in eight years. McKinley was the first American winner at Wimbledon since Tony Trabert in 1955. Stolle was never before even a semifinalist. McKinley, 22 and a beaten finalist in 1961, won the title without losing a set along the way. Billie Jean Moffitt, the bespectacled chatterbox of the courts, gets a chance to make it an American singles sweep Saturday, when she faces top-seeded Margaret Smith of Australia in the women's singles final. McKinley hurled his racket aloft In triumph. Some 18,000 fans had jammed the center court for the match. The appearance of Stolle in the final marked the eighth straight year an Australian had figured In it—an unprecedented modern performance, McKinley had a struggle on his hands only for the first 10 games, GATOR CAMPER Folding Model Sloops $C£SCI 00 Four 9O«7 PIASA HARBOR MoAdams Highway CPMPUS 2820 College Avenue Stay-Alive-Hook Catch more lish with LESS B/UT — FOR!

It's a tall, tall order, this going over $2 million in money winnings, and there's a long, long way to go. But Kelso never has been one to shirk a challenge. He had to run only in the last quarter Thursday in winning the ?108,500 Suburban Handicap at Aqueduct. The three-time Horse ol The Year was burdened with a crushing 133 pounds, including Ismael Valenzuela, and gave away from 18 to 23 pounds to his six rivals. It was the same weight under which he won the 1961 Suburban. The victory was worth ?70,525 and pushed Kelso's career earnings to $1,307,037, moving him past Nashua, with $1,288,565, into second place in the all-time list. He trails only Round Tnble, 'with $1,749,869 and possibly could make up the $442,832 difference before the year is out. He wasn't really pressed in winning the suburban, particularly since his chief rival, Beau Purple, passed up the race, He trailed Cyrano and Garwo! to the head of he stretch, then stormtd the last quarter in 23 3-5 seconds, He finished the VA. miles in 2:01 4-5, Saidam, who closed with a rush, was second 1% lengths back while Garwol was third, another IVi lengths back. Kelso paid only $2,90, $2.40 and $2.20 as the heavily backed favorite in a holiday crowd of 52,136, TIIKEE NEW RIVALS SYRACUSE, N.Y.

(Af) -It's official that Glenfl (Fireball) Roberts of baytotia Beadh won the Firecracker 400 a*)d $12,200 irt prise money. But Fred Lofettzett of Charlotte, N.C., had to wait for a NASCAR officials' meeting today to find out whether he finished second or third in the model stock car race Thursday. The owner of Marvin Panch's car, Glen Wood of Stuart, Va., protested that Paflch should be second instead of third. Wood said Lorenzen passed Roberts illegally while the caution flag was out and thus gained a full lap. If the protest Is allowed, Lorenzen would be set back to third and Panch, of Daytona Beach, advanced to second. It was an all-Ford finish as the three crossed the finish line separated by only one car length after a 400-mile ride. But it wasn't all "in the family." Roberts and Lorenscn are on a racing team. Panch is with a separate racing organization and the difference between $7,015 second money and $5,110 third prize is at stake. Roberts won with an average of 150.927 miles an hour. captured the nightcap 4-2. Nellie Fox' first homer of the season, good for two runs, in the sixth was the winning blow.
