ALTON EVENING TELEGRAt»M SAfttftbAY, AtiGUSf 24, 1963 A ^^ ' ; . geless Warren Spahn Dumps Dodgerg His 6-1 Win Cuts Dodger Lead to By MIKE KAtftEf Associated Pi-ess SpoHs Writer Gfaybeard Warren Spahn, suddenly turning intd a bluebeard against Los Angeles, has taken another step toward his 13th 20- Vlctory season while shaving the Dodgers' National League lead to 5*/6 games. Given home run support by Ed die Mathews and Hank Aaron, th 42-year-old Milwaukee lefl-hande posted victory No. 16 Fridaj night, scattering nine hirs in a 6- trlumph over the Dodgers. Time was when Spahn got a paid vacation when Ihe Brave, met the Dodgers. He went into the season with an 18-.'<4 recorc against his worst tormentors, bu has developed into a Dodger killci with a 4-0 record against the front-runners this year. Second-place St. Louis gained a game with a 4-1 decir.ion over Houston behind Bob Gibson's five hitter. Third-place San Francisco closed to within 6% as Chuck Hiller and Tom Haller connected for homers and Willie Mays lashed a double and triple in an 11-3 vie tory over Cincinnati and 18-game winner Jim Maloney. Fourth-place Philadelphia, only 7% back, defeated Pittsburgh 4-: and the Chicago Cubs snapped a three-game losing streak by edging the New York Meis 6-5. For a while at Los Angeles, it looked like father and son night, with Spahn making his 601st major league start against Dick Calmus, a 19-year-old Dodger rookie starting for the first time. Calmus lasted less than an inning as Mathews chased him with home run No. 19. Aaron connected in the ninth for his 33rd homer. Spahn, now 16-5, was touched \ for the Dodgers' only run in the first on a single by Maury Wills, an infield out and Tommy Davis' single.

Robert Markwardt 10, son of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Murkwurdt of Brighton, took a 7 1 ,i-pound bass at the Tri- County Rod and Gun Club Wednesday evening. Young Robert weighed the bass on a set of baby scales and believes the fish may have weighed an ounce or two more because fish lose weight quickly out of water. Another Lunker Bass Recently George Kruse of Brighton, supervisor of P i a s a Township, also took a five-pound bass out of the same waters. Used Special Lure The bass were hitting Wednesday evening also in Pohlman's Slough for Roland Jun Sr., 636 E. Fifth St., and Dr. C. 0. Hous ton, 1009 Danforth. The two men used a Webbfoot lure, designed and marketed by Jun, and scored 12 bass weighing up to 12 pounds. Took Fish on Files Two bass that sveighed more than 15 pounds were taken in a private lake north of Godfrey one recent evening by Charles Lynch of Rosewood Heights. Lynch says tie was fly casting from a boat nto the moss along shore where Ihe water was as shallow as six nches. One buss weighed '7'/a pounds and the other 1% pounds, ,ynch said. Scored Zoro Pete Barlels and his son, Kenny 10, of Wood River tried their uck In a Godfrey Lake Thursday morning without much sue* cess. The fish Just weren't biting, Bartels said. Are Fish Worth It? Fish don't necessarily always bite In the rain, observed Otto rede, Front Street. Last Sunday, ic fished two hours in a down- xmr from his boat equipped with a canopy top. He didn't get a single nibble, nor wet, but became so thoroughly chilled that t took hot coffee, hot soup, warm blankets and finally a hot bath to get his temperature back up to normal. Conservation Department Report The Illinois Conservation Department reports that fishing is slow at Grand Marais State Park near E. St. Louis, Beaver Dam State Park, Carlinville, and at Mermet Lake, Metropolis. Fishing is average at Lake Murphysboro, Murphysboro, Lake of Egypt, Goreville, and Horseshoe Lake, Olive Branch. Fishing is good at Devil's Kitchen Lake, Carbondale. Illinois Travelers During a recent 5,304-mile trip by car through western states and Canada, Jo Valentino of Greenfield especially observed the huge numbers of Illinois cars in the various areas. He pointed out that millions of dollars are pouring out of Illinois by vacation- ists seeking recreation in other areas. Valentine says it is an established fact that Illinois is near the bottom of the list in offering recreational facilities. He feels that if the money being spent by Illinois vacationists in other areas were kept here by offering similar recreational opportunities huge lakes and other attractions could be easily financed by the money. "In Canada, four out of 14 cabins at one fishing camp were occupied by Illinois residents," Valentine noted. "One Canadian customs official told me 11 it weren't for Illinois, we'd starve to death. In Chetek, Wis,, my wife and I counted an Average of seven out of 10 Illinois registered cars in a short period* "All these cars were headed north scattering Illinois recrea lion money to all who were prepared to offer something the va- cationist wants," he continued. This solid stream of money could be kept at home by a simple long range program by the Illinois Conservation Department of develop- Uig lakes and recreational faclU ties."
