j AUGUST 26, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE FIFTEEN nml Outdoors with Hitrold Brand Active Boarding Tontn The Const Guard Mobile Boarding Team lii this area Is most active. Hie team recently spent 10 dnys In the Beardslpwn region checking boats to see 11 they meet federal regulations. "In the three - week period end- Ing Aug. 22, we boarded about 300 boats on Alton Lake and at Beardstown," reported DM 1 Frank L. Katyimkt, 113a Washington Court, officer In charge of the team. "We found 95 boats in violation of government regulations. "Most violations was because the boalowner foiled to have the certificate of numbers paper on board," he continued. "Others also had the improper display o£ numbers. There must be a space the equlvllent of a letter between the prefix and the numbers and between the numbers and the suf- Ux. The space should be as wide as on M, or W. A hyphen Is permitted In the space." Fire Uxtlnguklicrs The second most violations was the lack of having a llfesaving device for each person on board. The third most violations was the lack of having a fire extinguisher. Federal law states that any boat under 26 foot with open construction doesn't need a fire extinguisher. However, if any boat, no matter how small even with a five horsepower engine, has a closed fuel compartment, an extinguisher is required. Illinois state law requires a fire extinguisher for all boats with 10 or more horsepower. "We also stopped two boatown- ers for reckless and negligent operation in the recreational area on the upstream Missouri side of Alton Locks and Dam," Katynski said. "One boatowner ran close to and dropped a skier in a bathing area and another boat- owner ran his boat near the bath- Ing area at excessive speed. These violations carry a heavy penalty." Week-Day Boating Slow Normally, after a notice of violation such as lack of equipment is given, the boatowner has 14 days to meet regulations and write to the Coast Guard Commander in St. Louis telling what has been done to correct the violation. The Commander decides whether to mitigate or to impose penalties. The other day Katynski, who Is also ah airplane pilot, flew over Alton lake making an aerial boat- Ing survey. He found that plea* sure boating is slow during the week. In contrast, boating Is exceptionally heavy on weekends', Katylnskl concluded. The Team's patrol boat Is kept at Clifton Terrace Marina, Sheafed l*io|>ollcr The Boners Club gained a new nominee recently when Harold Slmtmrger of Wood River attempted to run his boat onto his trailer. He was loading the boat at the Bowline Boat Club ramp on the Hartford (Cahokiu) Canal and asked a bystander if there was plenty of water. Slmburger was • told the water was eight feet deep so he gunned the motor. But the concrete ramp was under the aluminlm propeller and all three blades sheared off evenly as if the propeller had been put on a lathe. Simburger thinks now that the bystander maybe meant the ramp was eight feet wide. Forgot Tackle It. Jack Robinson of Wood River also became a nominee to the Boners Club the other day. He went to the Lake of the Ozarks for a week of fishing and found that he had left his rod and reels leaning against the side of his house. He telephoned for a friend to bring the missing equipment.. Monkey Was Shot Richard lirnlnerd of Grafton unc] his cousin Arthur Armstrong of Jerseyville went squirrel hunting one evening recently in Grahm Hollow near Grafton. They didn't shoot any squirrels but shot a monkey. The monkey was high in a tree and in the fading light only enough was seen to resemble a squirrel, this column was told. Armstrong fired and the monkey fell to the ground. It seems that since the incident many persons claimed it was their pet monkey that had escaped. Spotty Hunting Martin Arnold of Grafton says that squirrel hunting this season is very spotty. The busheytails are found only where mere are hickory nuts and the nuts are scarce this year too. Hickory nuts have been scarce the past three or four years possibly due to spring freezes, Arnold said. Ralston Ready For Cup Action &ROOKLINE, Mass. (AP) Chuck McKinley and Dennis Ralston, America's t6p tennis players, definitely have cemented their doubles, partnership and declared they're ready for more Davis Cup competition. "We feel we've found ourselves as a doubles team," McKinley said Sunday after the pair beat top-seeded Mexicans Rafael Osuna and Antonio Palafox 9-7, 4-6, 5-7, 6-3, 11-9 for the national doubles title. McKinley and Ralston beat the Mexicans for the doubles crown here two years ago, but lost to the same tandem both In the doubles and the Davis Cup American Zone playoffs In 1962. Their doubles victory over Wimbledon champions Osuna and Palafox was the key to the recent U.S. triumph In the American Zone Davis Cup semifinals in Los ngeles. The women's crown went to Australians Margaret Smith and Robyn Ebbcrn in an upset. They efeated defending champions Darlene Hard of Los Angeles and Maria Bueno of Brazil, 4-6, 10-8, -3. Mrs. Welts Wins Gals' Amateur Golf WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. (AP)- :"hird-time champion Mrs. Anne Quast Welts and her victim, teenager Peggy Conley, hadn't ilanned to enter the 1963 Women's National Amateur Golf Tourna- nent. But both got plenty of mileage out of their decisions, Mrs. Welts winning the 36-hole final Saturday 2 and 1 over the high school junior 'rom Spokane, Wash. A previous winner in 1958 and .961, Mrs. Welts' decision was made for her by her husband of two months. He is an attorney and she a history teacher at Mt. Vernon, Wash. High School. Mrs. Welts, 25, was a last-minute entry. Mrs. Welts had played in only one other tournament, the Western Carry Back's Days Of Racing Finished Amastar's bid for the 2-year-old title has been sidetracked, at least temporarily; Carry Back definitely has run his last race and Crimson Satan again has asserted his right to be recognized as one of the top handicap performers. These were the chief developments in Saturday's thoroughbred racing program. Amastar, from the Graee Creek Farm of Max Clark of Longview, Tex., had won all five of his starts and was the 3-4 favorite to whip six other juveniles in the $11,375 Hopeful which wound up Saratoga's Centennial meeting. But at the end of the 6V6 furlongs he was second, one length back of Reginald Webster's Traffic. Springfield Loses Connie Mack Contest The victory, . achieved in the slow time of 1:18 3-5, was only the second in 10 starts for Traffic He picked up $72,394 to add to his previous earnings of $14,150 and paid $17.60. Carry Back's racing career ended even before he had a chance at the big time.

(AP) - Klrkland, Wash., is the only undefeated team after the end of the second round of the Connie Mack Baseball World Series. Sunday night, Kirkland scored three unearned runs In the first Inning to defeat Santa Cruz, 3-1. Four errors committed by Santa Cruz aided in their defeat. Defending champion Fort Wortl was eliminated from tournament play as It lost to Chicago, 5-3 The Chlcagoans scored four runs in the fourth inning on four sin gles and two errors to wrap up the game. Springfield, III, went out of the contest by suffering its second loss to Des Molnes, Iowa 3-2. Des Moines, with two outs in the sixth Inning, won the decision with a single then a home run. In earlier play, Klrkland took its first win of the day with John Sloan pitching a 6-hlt shutout for a 3-0 victory over Fort Worth. Fort Worth committed tour errors. mlles - Speedy Scot Heavily Favored in 3rd Spot DU QUOIN, 111. (AP) - After falling to win the Hambletotiian In 12 previous starts, trainer-driver Ralph Baldwin looks like a sure thing Wednesday with Speedy Scot. Not since 1945 at Goshen, N.V. when Titan Hanover, straight-heat winner, was such a strong choice that porlmutuel wagering on him was refused or since the reign of such an overwhelming favorite as Scott Frost in 1955, has there been Speedy Scot. At the betlcss Du Quoin State Fairgrounds, the Castlelon Farm's color-bearer is listed at 2-5 on the unofficial line for the 38th Ham- blelonian, premier race for 3-year- old trotters. The 47-year-old Baldwin, from Pompano Beach, Fla., also aims to become the second driver to win trolting's triple crown. Joe O'Brien did it with Scott Frost. The first leg of the crown, the Yonkers Futurity, was won by Speedy Scot even though he broke stride. The Kentucky Futurity In Lexington Oct. 4 completes the series. Speedy Scot, however, didn't scare off too many rivals. Thirteen other trotters were named Sunday for the Hambletonian. With the lineup of 10 colts and 4 fillies, the event will be the sixth richest with a purse of $115,549 and $56,619 to the winner. Aiding Speedy Scot's chances was the pulling of No. 3 post position in a blind draw. "I'm well satisfied with that spot," said Baldwin.

John Pennel Tops 17 Feet BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — John Pennel, toast of the sports world after his phenomenal 17 foot inch pole vault Saturday, has proved that leaps of that nature don't come every day.

It's the best colt I've ever had." Speedy Scot was sired by Speedster, a third-place divisional finisher in the 1957 Hambletonian, and is an extremely big, powerful animal. He weighs from 1,100 to 1,150 pounds and Is so bold-gaited with a pounding force that padding is used between his shoes and hooves as a cushion. "It's just a precaution against any unsoundness that might develop in his legs," Baldwin said. "We also race him with bandaged hand legs for protection against accidentally nicking himself." The only race Speedy Scot lost in six starts this year was caused by him breaking gait and then throwing a shoe. Every nail in his shoes is now Inspected by Baldwin before he takes him on the 'ack. Many experts at DuQuoin figure hat Speedy Scot—who has the est time of any rival with a :59 2-5—will break the Hamble- onlan record of 1:58 2-5 set in 961 by Harlan Dean on the blaz- ng fast clay mile oval at the 'airgrounds.
