TUESDAY, 3UPTJ ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE FIFTEEN and Outdoors with Harold Brand Kentucky Lake Trip A one-way outboard runabout boat trip was made recently from Alton to Kentucky Lake by Bob McGhee, 1905 Main St., and Norman L. Combs, North Rodgers Avenue. After reaching the lake, the men were joined by their wives who brought a boat trailer to haul the boat home. "We left here one morning at 8:30 a.m. and arrived at our destination the following day at 5:30 p.m., McGhee said. "We spent our first night at Cape Girardeau where we walked into town. Our biggest problem was finding gasoline. "We carried two six-gallon fuel tanks and a spare three-gallon can," he continued. "Our larger tanks ran dry several times. We had to walk into towns for gas and twice found friendly persons who drove us to a gasoline station. We recommend that anyone else making the trip to carry at least enough gasoline to get to Cairo. I took 40 gallons of gas for the entire trip." Honor Club Nominees It rained all the way to Ches ter but the boat's windshield deflected the water off the men. "It was quite a thrill being locked through Kentucky Dam," McGhee said. It seemed like our boat was inside a prison when we entered the unusually high locks. We had the impression that the boat was raised 150 feet but it was under 100 feet." The men also became nominees to the Boners Club at Kentucky Lake. They ran the boat out about one-quarter mile from shore to use up all their fuel. When they ran out of gas they intended to use a five-horsepower outboard engine they had along for emergency use. But when they tried to put the smaller engine on the boat's tran som, it wouldn't fit. They finally poured the gasoline from the little motor into the larger engine. Evinnide Boats Evinrude Motors, manufactur- ers of outboard engines for 55 years, announced it will launch its own boats this fall. Four 16- ft runabouts, two outboard powered and two propellered by stem- drive engines, will be produced. All four have unusual "gull wing" hull design. For the past eight years Evin- rurle has been developing the boat designs. Tests and research during the past four years has resulted in a boat bottom that will give a more comfortable ride with maximum stability and safety, according to Robert H. Scott, director of sales for Evinrude. Island Party Twin Lakes Yacht Club has scheduled an Island party for this coming Saturday with entertainment provided by a five-piece band, announced Rose Mary Am- brosl, club secretary. The exact island will be named later. Members and guests are invited, she said. New Ski Boat Glasspar has announced an all new Super-G luxurious 16-ft ski boat designed to offer safe performance with motors from 75 up to 140 horsepower. Co-star in the Glasspar line is the 21-ft New- porter, a roomy fisherman type cruiser designed to handle the roughtest water with ease. Many Tows If you get the idea that there are lots of tows on the waters, you are correct. Since World War II, barge traffic on the Mississippi River system has increased from 18 billion-ton plus miles to 79 billion-ton miles plus in 1962, according to the latest statistics compiled by the Corps of Engineers. A total of 1,916 towboats and tugs and more than 11,638 non- self-propelled barges of all types having a cargo capacity of 12 million tons plus are in operation on the Mississippi River system. We ran into such a congestion of tows during a night boat ride recently that we wondor if quite a few of those boats were on Alton Lake. McKinley Has Plans Before Turning Pro FOREST HILLS, N.Y. (AP)Chuck McKinley is interested in taking a fling at pro tennis, but there are a couple of jobs he wants to complete before he starts talking turkey. "I want to win the national championship and I want to help bring the Davis Cup back from Australia," the aching-back Wimbledon king said today.

The 6-year-old gelding won the 13th 5100,000 race of his brilliant career Monday, a 5%-length victory over Crimson Satan in the 5110,600 Aqueduct Stakes at 1%miles. If there were any disbelievers in the crowd of 71,675—biggest turnout in New York racing history—Kelso should have converted them. Make no mistake, this horse is one of the tops of all time, and he's nearing his fourth straight Horse-of-the-Year title. Exterminator, the famous "Old Bones" who started 100 races and won 50 during an eight-year career that ended when he was nine is the most famous of American geldings. He campaigned between 1917-24.
