WEB&BSBAV, JULV l? t 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH mid Outdoors ttllli Iliirnlil Ill-mill <iVittilft Stipefvlslim In Hoo.fcnllnnnl Arena During n Sunday afternoon visit to the recreational area on the Missouri side of Alton Locks and Dam, Ken (Jiirslens, and his wife, 309 E. lOth St., observed various conditions that he termed arc a headache. He snvv many youngsters wading and paddling In the water and there were no lite Rilards. He also noted thai runabout boats continually maneuvered from a launching ramp lo deeper water passing close by the bathers, "The area was well crowded," Carstens said, "The lack of no supervision was all apparent. Some of the amorous exhibitions by several couples lying on blank- els also 'were in extreme poor laslc. However Iho area has ample parking facilities, plenty of shade trees, picnic tables, drinking water and rest rooms. I believe more safety precautions in the water and some supervision should he made for the area." The recreational area was created by (he Corps of Engineers, U. iS. Army and opened lo Ihe public on April Ifi. II been mo most popular at once. Fishermen have long used Iho area lo fish on the upper side and below Ihe dam with much success. We know, we were one of them. I'liri'lil's l!cH|i(inslbilit,v We contacted John JHIISCII, hcac of the Locks and Dam .section it the cons!ruction operation divisioi of Ihe Engineers. He pointed oul thai it hasn't boon a policy of the Engineers to provide life guards up and down Ihe river. "There is practically no eurrcn in the .swimming section of Iht recreational area And it is alsc moslly very shallow," Junsei said. "11 is a parent's responsibil ily to supervise their children in Ihe water which makes the need >f life guards unnecessary. "As for the amorous displays,' ve can't control people," he con- inued. "And if we did stop them, hey would complain that the gov- •rnmenl controls everything." Jansert also noted that there lave been some outlandish affairs md even crimes committed In the area at night. There is presently a neetlng of the minds lo close (he irea in evenings lo help resolve lie problems. Vandalism has prevailed and much damage bus been done lo Ihe rest rooms and oilier nstallaUons. KlinilH Needed "Lack of funds prevents further niprovemenls lo the'area at Ihe iresenl lime," Jatiscn said. "The original costs of creating the area were higher than expected and Iho vandalism lias ulso eaten Into our operating funds. It lakes time lo get more money allotted. It is also imporlunl to hole thai if people would lake bolter care of the facilities now provided, il would encourage more and better improvements." We would not like lo see Ihe area closed nor believe the government should be held responsible for any consequences in using any and all of Ihe recreational facilities. We don't hold Ihe city or slate responsible for using highways, parks and other public areas. We believe the same as Jansen that il should be the in dividual's responsibility when using public accommodations. Bui in public interests perhaps Iho Missouri slate patrol and St. Charles County sheriff's deputies could drive through the area periodically, especially at night. It is an established fuel that just seeing a patrol car on highways makes all motorists cautious. Tho same effect may stop some of I lie vandalism and crimes in the recreational area. Pros Like Course McCovey's Bat Isn't Enough n.v Associated Press Sports Writer DALLAS. Tex. (APi — The ivorld's lop professionals, with uirdly a critical whimper among hem, will set out Thursday in Ihe 'irsl round of Ihe Professional Jolfers Association Championship over a course they say they like— licve il or not—even if il is baked by Mi-degree heal. "It's a good, fair course," Arnold Palmer said today. "Sure It's hot bill when yon play a lour- namenl in Texas in July you '.xpert that." "I don't remember ever seeing i course used for a major chain pionshjp thai is so well-condilionerl and so fair," echoed Mike Sou chak. "There are IS tough hole; out there, lough hut fair. The fairways are fine and the greens are Ihe. best.

It's also Ihe last chance for Palmer.

He was well down the list in Ihe Masters, won by Jack Nicklatis, and last week ivotind up 27th In the British Open, won by the New Zealand left-hander, Bob Charles. The fact that he's overdue, plus his record of never having won the PGA championship, have made Ihe Latrobe, Pa., master a '1-1 favorite in the 72-hoie mednl play championship.

He really isn't. It just seems that way. Like, how long has it been since he broke into the majors? Well, it sounds pretty long when you say il was 22 years ago. But il sounds even longer when you consider that when he broke in: Frankie Albert was the hottest thing in college football, Bob Cousy was an 11-year-old kid in New York and Rocket Richard had yet to put a skate on National Hockey League ice.
