Having reached his goal, after a tew false turns and futile htjuiHes, the tourist found little here that helped. If he did not enow the local story, und few places arc impressive without heir stories, the visitor fretjucnt- y experienced a letdown. It often was difficult to find a suitable parking place. Food, campsites for those who wished to pitch lent or park trailers for an overnight stay, along with other necessary conveniences, were irude and in short supply. Too often there was about it all an un- <empl air. Improvement Underway Two recent visits to ttje Pounds Hollow recreation area in the Shawnee National Forest have aroused high hopes that a definite improvement program is underway. Pounds Hollow area is on the north side of the Karbers Ridge blacktop road that leads west from Illinois Highway about 12 hiiles north of Cave-in- Rock. It is easy to find and having arrived there, it is easy to see laving tastefully designed but unobtrusive markers for the visitors guidance. The lake with its rocky wooded shores, picnic grounds and bailing beach cannot be missed. Thon there is the dock where rowboats may be had, with thankfulness that no roaring outboard motors are going to shatter the natural quiet. Those who have known The Pounds lor many years will find several late arrangements to please them. Among these is a campground with 75 sites for for tents or trailers. Each site has its own cooking grill. Trash cans and clean comfort stations are near at hand. Plans to have ample water are underway. These gravelled, uncrowded plots are in a delightful young forest, mostly pine. The writer has known the delights of camping in the pine forests of Maine is readying camp gear for a few days among the young pines, about 40 fee high, at Pounds Hollow. Tables anA t Trails Another pleasing feature at the Pounds is a cluster of eight dou ble-sized tables, each with its in dividual grill mounted on post so the user does not have to stoop These picnic tables are at the be ginning of the trails that lead pas the fallen stone wall that the In dians left and along the brink o the cliff that borders the narrov PLYMOUTH sales are up... way up!

These trails have been tld oul as easy as the surface vill allow. Even those who have lowed down can leisurely wand- r along them, pausing at the fre- I u e n 11 y spaced, comfortable icnches to sit and rest, alsvays a c i n g toward some pleasing /lew. An interesting feature along the oot It-alls is an array of signs lo ell the slroller aboul the area Some of these help by giving the common names of flowers, shrubs and trees. One such sign poinls o poison ivy and carries the ad vice, "If leaves be three, let i be." Another identifies the slip pery elm, even giving its Indiai mine. This one reminded the writ er of a youthful argument with hi jotany leacher who insisted tha here was no such dlslincl Iree The rash youth won the argu nient but didn't add much to hi: grade. Other markers identity th owly persimmon, winged elm tulip, oak, walnut and while asl .ree. These labels also ctiry inform;' lion for Ihe curious. We are toll that the trull of Ihe persimmoi >s relished by practically all wood land animals, even by boys. The; .ell of the use of slippery elm am hat tea from sassafras roots wa lonsidered a great spring tonic At one place there is a "snlf box" whose lid one may raise tc enjoy the faint odor of the sassa fras roots fastened in the box. 3 Millionth Tree At Ihe trail's beginning a prom inent marker points the three mi lionth pine tree planted in the pro gram sponsored by the Illinoi Federated Woman's Club, unde whose encouragement this sign ficant reforestation project \va carried forward. There are maps along the trail to indicate points of interest and on each is a "you are here" marking that enables the visitor to know where he is. A sign points the way to "Fat Man's Misery" and down a safe stairway in the crevices in the cliff to "Ox Lot Shelter" where early lumbermen kept their cattle to haul logs to the narrow gauge railroad that led to the sawmill on Saline River. Where the stairway starts down there is a geological chart that helps to an understanding of the rock formations. At the bottom one finds the ox lot occupied by a picnic table and a cooking grill. There are ferns and beech trees with old, old initials carved on them. The oldest date found was '06. Pounds Hollow has become more attractive since its improvement program has gotlen well under way. Interest was added by visiting there and hearing two old gentlemen Mr. Scott past 90 and Mr. Thacker well in his 80's tell of visits there a long lifetime ago. An old lady told of how her mother prepared food for,the sawmill helpers and of how it was taken on a flat car over the little railway to the men at noontime. One is left with many questions. Why did the Indians carry rock om the creek- bed to build walls top of Ihe bluff? Does Ihe de- ached heap of stones on, the luff mark an Indian burial site? /here is the outcropping of rock •om which pioneer boys got ma- erial for their slate pencils? Are B berry bearing bushes on top of e bluff those of the "Sarvis" ber- V? Where can one find a more estful spot than the upper length I Pounds Hollow? Car Without Wheels At Springfield Fair SPRINGFIELD, 111. — The Terra Jet," a car without wheels lat travels on an air cushion our to six inches above the round, will be an attraction at ie 1963 Illinois State Fair. Franklin H. Rust, general manger of the fair, said the device 'ill be demonstrated throughout ie fair which begins on Friday, Aug. 9, and continues through Sunday, Aug. 18. The modern answer to impassible roads, the "Terra Jet" accommodates two passengers, or as much as 700 pounds of live veight. It is controlled as easily as conventional automobiles, Rust said.
