WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE tttid Outdoors with Harold Brand Sees Change "There has been quite a change in the outdoor recreational picture in the Grafton area in recent years," pointed out Elmer Fmilsttch of that community. "For one thing, in past years it was common for hundreds of thousands and even as many as a million waterfowl to rest during migration in the general Grafton - Batchtown areas. Now the areas are crowded with club houses. "Right where I formerly enjoyed good duck hunting on Pohlman Slough in past years is a cottage," he continued. "And there are dozens and dozens of other cottages nearby. The advance of persons seeking outdoor recreation is pushing back the wildlife frontiers." Faulstich believes, and hunt- Ing results of recent years reveals that the waterfowl are shying away from (he . clubhouse areas. Another serious note is that the many back waters and lakes near Grafton are silting up and making fishing poorer. Past Era? "A few years ago it was no trouble to run a boat with a moderate horsepower engine into the waters on fishing trips," Faulstich said. "Now my 15 hp. motor will hit bottom in many lakes. A good example is Silver Lake where I formerly ran Ihe boat into the waters, now » have to paddle much of (he time to keep my motor from striking bottom." Unless the state or the federal government dredges or draglines out some or most of those waters, the Grafton area will diminish as an outdoor center, Faulstich says. The completion of McAdams Highway in the near future may not be a boon to Grafton as believed if the hunting and fishing continues to decrease. Faulstich has joined the many legions of veteran duck hunters who have told this writer that it is no longer worth while to seek waterfowl. Apparently the era of wonderful fishing and hunting in the Grafton-Batchtown regions has passed and oldtimers can talk of the good old days. Preserve Areas The other evening this column told of the Wilderness Bill being considered by Congress and of the 30,000 acres of bottomlands owned by the Corps of Engineers stretching upriver from Alton. The popu lation explosion is one of the reasons for the Bill. It seems that it also applies here at home. Perhaps it is more urgent than ever that the 30,000 acres also bevkepl intact as a wilderness preserve, Duck Surveys According to government surveys not all the missing water fowl in the aforementioned areas is due to the influx of club houses. The Department of the Interior (Fish and Wildlife Service) says the first 1963 survey of duck nesting grounds of last May and June, indicated a small increase over the 1962 breeding population. However, the 1962 population was 38 per cent under the 1950-62 aver age. The second survey, made primarily in July, showed considerably bettor production of most species of ducks in 1963 over 1.9B2. More Wood Ducks Taken The National Wildlife Federa tion passes along word that, according to Federal Migratory Bird Populations station' report, the wood duck percentage of the total duck kill in the Mississippi Flyway increased from 6.1 in 1961 to 15.3 in 1962. The increased importance of the woody in the flyway's total kill was attributed to more liberal wood duck regulations coupled with more restrictive regulations for the mallard in 1962. Amateur Golf Field Sliced To 16 Players DES MOINES. Iowa (AP)— The R.1rd U.S. Amateur Golf championship moves into two 18-hole rounds of play today that trim the original field of 200 to 16. Among the top contenders over the 6,896-yard par 36-36—72 Wakonda Club course are Dick Sikes, former National Public Links titl- ist and current NCAA champion from the University of Arkansas, in the third quarter of the draw along with Billy Joe Patton, West Virginians Bill Campbell and Ed Tutwiler, and two collegians — Bob Greenwood of North Texas State and Jimmy Jewell of Indiana. Defending champion Lahron Harris Jr. of Enid, Okla., heads the second bracket of the draw that also has 1960 champion Deane Beman, and three tough St. Louis players—Jim Tom Blair, Bob Cochran and Jim Jackson. In the first bracket are George Archer, a 6-foot-6 apprentice cowpoke from Gilroy, Calif., who eliminated 1962 runner-up Downing Gray 4 and 3 Tuesday: NCAA runner-up John Lotz, a 1 up win ner over former Walker Cupper Bob Gardner of Essex Fells, N.J.; and Steve Spray, the hometown favorite and small college champion at East New Mexiro University the last, two years. Charlie Coe, winner in 1949 and 1958, rules the fourth quarter, where upsets hit with the suddenness of the sun through the early rain and fog on Tuesday. Falling to the sidelines were Homero Blancas, a 5 and 3 loser to Henry Timbrook, a California real estate man; 1962 British Amateur champ Dick Davies of Pasadena, Calif., spilled in a late rally by burly Ross Mitchell of Lubbock, Tex.; and talented, young George Boutell of Phoenix, a 2 and 1 loser to Fred Gordon, a 50-year-old owner of a greenhouse at Belmond, Iowa.

BATTING— Wally Moon, ers, hit two-run seventh homer that proved decisive Dnrlg- inning • in 4-2 Cardinals. By .tOK RKICHI.ER Associated press Sports Writer NEW YORK (API—There are few hall players whom other hall players talk about. Babe Ruth was one. Ted Williams was an- >ther. Among the actives they talk about are Stan Musial, Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle and Warren Spalm. They talk about Spahn's endurance, his coolness under fire, his contempt for hitters. They talk about his pinpoint control, his variety of pitches, his perfect timing, balance and faultless delivery. All have combined to make the Milwaukee southpaw one of the greatest pitchers of our time. But there are other reasons for his greatness. "It's his concentration," said Musial who probably has engaged in more hand-to-hand duels with the 42-year-old than with any other pitcher. "He never gives you the pitch you are looking for. It's useless to try to outguess him. "I've been hitting against him nearly 18 years and I haven't been able to figure him out yet." "It's his confidence," said Fred Haney, general manager of the Los Angeles Angels who was Spahn's skipper during the Braves pennant winning years. "He walks out there with the sort of snap that shouts confidence. You can tell he means business; that he's the boss, .just hy thr way he| stands on the mowirl and breathes, defiance down the hatter's! throat." i "Spahn is not only Ihe most re-j markable athlete hut 'he most in-j telligent man I ever saw," saidj Bobby Rragan. the current Mil-< waukee pilot. i "I don't know of anyone who likes what he's doing as much as Spahn. unless it's Willie Mays," said Alvin Dark, San Francisco] manager. "I've never considered baseball hard work." said Spahn. "I'm fortunate to be engaged in a business which is fun compared to other businesses."
