TWENTY ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH WEDNESDAY, JULY 16, itftit Outflows with Harold lira ml Locking Through PaMy T<vifi Lakes Yacht Club has set a Locking through Party for Sunday to acquaint the uninitiated with the process of going through a locks and dam. The cruisers will leave the harbor at 9 a.m. under the direction of Joe Bfadbum. The runabouts will leave at 11 a. rn. led by Paul Itoffmah. The boats will rendezvous below Winfield Dam and go through as a group. After the passage, at) outing is planned on an island. Boat Races Sunday The Jefferson County Boat Club at Crystal City, Mo., has scheduled a, series of boat races beginning at 1 p.m. Sunday. The events are to be run at Hugs Landing on the Mississippi River about 35 miles south of St. Louis on highways 61-67. Signs will mark the site, reported Dick Oldlmnt, a member. The Missouri Boating Assn., formerly the St. Louis Stock Outboard Drivers Club, will run 12 classes of boats. About 100 different boats are expected to enter and many present and former champion drivers are expected to compete. Some of the drivers will Include Bill Seebold Jr., Walter Courtols, Matt Woelfle and many others. Nearly $1,000 in prize money is being offered to pilots. A boat boat show by dealers is also scheduled. Picnic tables and barbecue pits are now being bult on the grounds which has plenty of parking and shade, Oldham said. Proceeds from the races are to be used to further improve the grounds. Admission is adults 75 cents and chldren under 12 free. Air-Conditioned Boats- Just as club houses and summer cottages are second homes to m^ny persons who add nearly ever convenience, skippers of larger boats are minded the same way. Harold Jansen, California Avenue, is presently installing air conditioning on his 34-ft boat Communicator at Harbor Point Yacht Club. He will also install air conditioning on Harold Oswald's 43-ft cruiser Teri-Ho, there and Eugene Ollk's 43-ft cruiser Elaine at Venetian Harbor. Jansen will install air conditioning too on Bay ftlxninii's 35-ft boat Rixie at Harbor Point. The units are water cooled and are Installed with most of the equipment In the bilge. Peorla Trip Mr. imd Mrs. Courtney Itndd of Harbor Point Yacht Club and guests, Mr. and Mrs. Cantrcll, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Stork and Mr, and Mrs. Torn Lorble ran their boat Catnip Hill II to Peoria and return from last Thursday through Sunday. Larger Fish Being Taken Since the Illinois Conservation Department has begun to keep records of largest fish taken in the state, some new records have been set recently. A bluegill Iiy 2 inches long that weighed two pounds, 10 ounces was taken recently in a strip mine northwest of Marion, 111., by Ernest (Rip) Sullivan of Marion. He took the bluegill on a spinning rod and was using live worm for bait. A 4% pound bluegill caught in Ketona Lake, Ala., in 1950 holds the world's record for this species. Since Illinois has a much shorter growing season than Alabama, it is doubtful that a native bluegill of this size will ever be caught in Illinois. Record ganger A new state record for sauger was set recently when Roger Allhands of Danville caught one in Kickapoo State Park that weighed three pounds and seven ounces. The fish, often mistaken for a walleye, was 19% inches long. The sauger averages 12 to 14 inches in length, weighs from one to two pounds, had a body marked with dark blotches and has two rows of black dots on the first dorsal fin. Walleyes have a dark blotch on the rear of the first dorsal fin. If s Billiards Parlor, Not Pool Rooms, Now NEW YORK (AP) — There's a boom on in this area in gleaming, new family center-type bil- liar parlors—and please don't call them pool rooms. They're a far cry from the JUNIOR BASEBALL ' In the eight-year-old league of junior baseball the Giants trimmed Northside, 5-2, the Tigers edged the Mustangs, 7-6, the Beavers ripped the Warriors, 20-5, and the podgers topped the Pirates, 11-6. Mike Gillson was the winner for the Giants and also belted a homer and triple. Robert Sisk struck out 15 for Northside and tripled. Dale Cooper homered for the Tigers, Mark Case for the Mustangs. Winning hurler John Lyon hit two homers and a single. Steve Marmino lashed two homers for the Warriors. Jim Yost pitched a one-hitter for the Dodgers and banged triple and single. Jeff Joyce also tripled for the Dodgers. In 11-12-year-old action, tin Cardinals defeated the Tigers, 7-2 the Hawks tripped the Pirates, 4-1 the Cubs blanked the Indians, 5-0 the Rebels beat Hellrung, 8-1, anc the Yankees walloped the Braves 20-2. Larry Krotz homered an singled for the Cardinals. Djiv Gaither did the same for th Tigers. John Pelligrino homere and Paul Heinkel tripled for th Hawks. Terry Middleton doublet for the Cubs, Dave Kennedy fo the Indians. Dennis Hendrick fanned 14 for the Rebels. Spence Buescher homered for Hellrun and Darley Campbell banged tw hits. Carl Slagely homered an tripled for the Yanks while Dav Olmstead tripled for the Braves. In the 13-14-year-old league the Dodgers downed the Yankees, 7-4, and the Braves toppled the Redblrds, 7-1. Winning pitcher Bob Gruver hom- ered twice and tripled for the Dodgers. Greg King fanned 10 for the Braves as Joe Griffin slashed two hits, Steve Hard singled three times for the Redblrds. In the 15-17-year-old league th Athletics downed Hellrung, 4-2. noky, dimly lit pool rooms of ur youth, and if they call this •ogress we're against it. "Stay away from the pool room r.d don't go near those bum- iks," was the stern admonition card daily and just as often ig- ored in our neighborhood in the ong ago. We never could figure out why le older folk were so dead set gainst the teen-agers getting a ligher education in these fascinat- ig classrooms. For one thing we discovered hat you could learn arithmetic nd geometric angles a lot faster y losing hard-earned dimes to a ool hustler than we could in chool. None of the kids who held club leetings in the neighborhood pool oom ever failed in arithmetic. Any kid with a good car could firn fractions quicker by read- ng the figures on the odds at the /arious race tracks as p< sted on \e slate board in chalk, than in chool. The sharp characters who figured up the race odds at the racks, before pari-imituel machines were used, were a lot marter and faster than any of he teachers we ever taiew. Any guy who could figure out a Dutch book, and ger enough scratch together to beat it has to ate as a mathematical genius in our book. A Dutch book was an overloaded listing of the odds on a race Instead of coming to 100 per cent t would come to say 90 or 9") per cent. By betting certain amounts of money jn each horse in the race you had to make money. You had to be quick to spot these slight miscalculations and qu'cker even to get your money down to make these bets. Tennis Club Fans to Meet Anyone interested in joining a tennis club is urged to attend a meeting Thursday night at the Alton Recreation Department at Rock Spring Park at 7:30. The public is invited to attend. The club will be forced, officers will be elected and future events will be planned. Janet McBrien of the Recreation Department will be in charge of the meeting.
