FRI13AV, AUGUST 23, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAQE THlttfttBN "'"v-'TltrrnrTiT •' M i t LARGE BASS A seven-pound, 10 Ounce bass held by the lucky angler, Reed Delano (right) with fishing guide, Guy Slsney, was taken recently at Bull Shoals Lake, Ark. See River Ripples Column for more Information. Outdoors with Harold Brand Took Hlg Bass Reed Dolano 15, Fail-mount Addn., has established a record for himself that he is going to have difficulty in bettering. Recently during a 2V4 - day fishing trip with his lather, Jay Delano, to Oakland Dock on Bull Shoals Lake near Bull Shoals, Ark,, he landed a seven - pound, 10 ounce largemoulh bass. He hooked the trophy fish while trolling with a Martin lizzard lure in the Spring Lake area. He and his father also took several other fish but they were practically minnows in comparison. They look 13 fish in' all including seven other bass that averaged two to 2% pounds, and five walleyes that averaged 2Vz pounds. The trophy bass was the biggest taken that week in that area. "It was too hot to fish during the day," Jay said. "We fished only .early in the morning and late in the evening. Reed took his fish about 8:30 p.m. He also received a permanent citation for landing such a large specie." Work. Party Sot A work party to clean up the grounds of the Alton - Wood River Sportsmens' Club near Pleasant Hill is set for this weekend, announced club president, Volunteer workers Mel are requested to bring their own tools including brush cutting implements, rakes, axes, pruining saws and so on. "We would like a big turnout," Rushing said. "The club wil provide ham and beans 'on Sunday to workers who are requested to bring a side dish. On Saturday, workers should bring their lunch." The club's nine - acre lake in Godfrey has been producing some eight to 9Vi! - pound catfish lately, Rushing told us. However most of the fish have been taken from boats as a heavy growth o smart weed makes it difficult to fish from shore. "There are some whoppers the lake," Rushing continued Night Golf Play in. Opens on East Coast tty WILL OftlMStfiV AfiMOclfitcd Press Sports Write* SEWfcLL, N.J. (AP)-Okay, so nighttime golf is here. Now what? "We won't play the National Open under arcs any time soon," said 1 J . 3. Boatright, assistant executive director of the U.S. Golf Association. "It's interesting and It's fun, but you can't expect it to take the place of daytime play. "Night golf should lend itself particularly to the overcrowded public courses." "It has its problems," added Fred Corcoran, tournament director of the International Golf Association. "I remember I predicted back in 1939 that golf courses one day would be lighted, but it'll be Gunderson, Welts ResumeOld Grudge 'Several anglers have hooked luge fish and not only lost them >ut much of their lures and line oo." The Sportsmen's Club plans to iponsor a wrestling match Wednesday, Sept. 18, with top line wrestlers at the West High School lymnasium, Rushing concluded. Wo Looked for Thorn We are used to seeing signs hat say: Deer Crossing; Open Cattle Range; Soft Shoulders; Falling Rock and so on as we drive along the highway. But the sign that startled us the most the other day was the one in Wood liver near the Moose Lodge that warned autoists: Moose Cross- ng.

Club Grounds Civic leaders in St. Louis are starting a movement to buy up (arge tracts of land now for future use as parks. Large acre- ages are gradually being broken up due to the great population explosion and tremendous growth of cities and suburbs. Clubs and other organizations should take notice and if they do not already have their own grounds and possible outlying picnic, fishing, and recreational area, now is the time to look for suitable grounds. The prices of real estate are bound to continue rising. If funds are limited, it may be advisable to purchase the grounds now and wail until later to make improvements. Many clubs and organizations, including the VFW of North Alton, The Alton - Wood River Sportsmen's Club and others already have such grounds. Vermilion County Farm Sports Champ SPRINGFIELD, 111.

By BOB SALMON Associated Press Sports Writer WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. (AP)A rivalry that began nearly a decade ago between a pair of teen-agers in Washington State resumes today in the semifinals of the 63rd Women's National Amateur Golf Championship. Defending champion JoAnne Gunderson and Mrs. Anne Quast Welts will be meeting for the sixth time in competitive play when they tee off amid the mountain greenery at Taconic Golf Club. Miss Gunderson, now 24 and a three-time winner of this tournament, holds a 3-2 edge. But Mrs Welts, a year older, was the winner in a semifinal match between the two in the 1958 National. Four of their matches have gone 18 holes or more. College student Carol Sorenson of Janesville, Wis., meets 16-year old Peggy Conley of Spokane Wash., in the other semifinal. The 36-hole final will be played Saturday. Miss Gunderson was a Kirkland, tVash., girl when the rivalry be;an. She now lives in Providence, R.I. Mrs. Welts was a Marysville, Wash., resident but now lives in VIount Vernon, Wash. "We've been good friends for years," Mrs. Wells said after beat- ng junior champion Janis Ferraris of San Francisco 4 and 3 in a quarter-final match Thursday. Miss Gunderson, one over par for 69 holes, took a 5 and 4 vic- :ory over Mrs. Helen Sigel Wilson of Gladwyne, Pa. Miss Sorenson, 20-year-old former intercollegiate and Western Amateur champion, gained revenge with a 4 and 3 victory over Mrs. Phyllis Semple of Sewickley, Pa., Thursday.

Miss Conley's 3 and 2 victim was former Curtis Cupper Judy Bell of Colorado Springs, who just couldn't control her putter over the back nine. a few years before this becomes a general fad." Boatrighl and Corcoran were two of the many golf personalities inviled to Tall Pines here this weekend to see a bit of golf history made—lighting of the first regulation course. At a cost of $63,000, 121 powerful mercury floodlights of 1,000 watts each have been mounted on 76 40-foot wood poles around the nine-hole course, pouring out light equal to the flame of six million candles. Although driving ranges, miniature layouts and some 200 sporty par-three courses are illuminated for night play, this is the first man-sized course to beat the darkness barrier. Tall Pines, a private club, has holes comparable to those the pros play on tour, with 28 deep sand traps, 1,000 added trees and out-of-bounds on five holes. A par-five hole stretches 520 yards. A valley par-four reaches 420 yards, and another 415. There is a par-three of 215 yards. Played twice around, it measures 6,460 yards with par 35-35—70. "It's not daylight, but it's the nearest thing to it and the best money can buy," said the owner of the little private club, Peter McElroy Sr. Larry Dengler, marketing en- TOPS AT S1U CARBONDALK — Rusty Mitchell, (center), NCAA tumbling champion in 1962 and fifth in all-around competition this past season, has been selected Southern Illinois University's most outstanding athlete over wrestler Larry Krlstoff (left) and track star Brain Turner.
