(AP) — Gary layw, a young South African who amued <ne golfing world by winning the Masters at Augusta, da., Monday, is riding a financial crest which may threaten Arnold Palmer's existing record.

Official figures released by the Professional Golfers Association headquarters showed Player has competed in 13 tournaments, won three and placed in the upper five brackets (including his three wins) eight times. Public Lecture Slated by NAACP A public lecture sponsored by the Alton branch of the Nattona Assn. for the Advancement of Col ored People is slated at Steelwork era' Abel Hall, Sunday from 4 to 6 p.m. Hie educational committee o the NAACP announced the speak er is to be Leo Bohannon, execu tive director of the Urban League of St. Louis. Caracas, Venezuela, is a mod ern city of 1,200,000 people. Outdoors with Humid Brand This is the third of a series of reminiscing close to 90 years ago about the river at Alton by James V. Boehm, 212 Logan St., Jethalto. Boehm has been a river enthusiast all his life and re* calls many interesting stories. Well Known Brato When I take a little boat ride now and go into some of the harbors up the river, 1 can't help but think of the fine boats that were anchored at Webb's dock. The La- feba, Virginia, Mallard, Nina, Loiter the Fourth and Filth. The lafeba was later named Super X. There was many others in the smaller class. Mayo Bros, from Minnesota used to stop here on its way South. It had 28 in the crew. Alton Slough across the river harbored all the U.S. work boats along with their quarter boats including the big 71. The U.S. Engineers had their office boat at the foot of Plasa 3 .F. Boehm street for the summer months while they had their crews at work on the dikes in this district. They didn't seem to do too much good as a very large sand bar formed in the river Jusl down from the water works. It kept them busy keeping the wat- er intake open. Another sandbar formed off Eagles Nest Island and the steam ers had a hard time in low water getting through. These bars were the best for swimming if you knew where the step offs were. It was bad In that respect on aceounl of the dangerous current and whirlpools. Boat Inspections In low water the current would hit an obstruction In the bottom and create the swirling motion These were called whirlpools About this time the governmen became pretty strict on motorboa inspections. An inspector from the federa building of St. Louis made frequent trips to Alton. He was a federal game warden and motor boat inspector. If you didn't have the right equipment you receivet a notice from St. Louis and you paid a fine. This didn't help mot orboating one bit. Shortly after that, World War I came along and the governmen took a lot of the large boats fo Coast Guard service. If you want ed to take a boat ride you stayet away from the bridge. There wa guards on the bridge and if yo went under it you could look u into the business end of a 30.0 and a scared kid behind it you can't tell a tire by its price tag! Do you know what those $10, $11, $1? nylon tires are really worth? The beat way for you to find oat what a tire hi really worth? Use it But then it may be too fete. How can you find out before you buy? The price tag won't tell you. There are so-called "bargain" tires, "obeapie" tires, "diacount" tires and other tires you're never heard of. Moat of them have one thing in common. They do a lot of shouting •bout price. But there's a big difference in what goes into them, as compared to a Goodyear tire. We took nine "bargain" nylon cord tires priced at $10, $11, $12 or more to the lab for analysis and matched them to our $12.88 8-T Nylon All-Weather. What a difference! Tbt Qoodycar tire had a 28.2% ttroitatr tire body than the average rating of the rest. And the tread strength rating of our 8-T Nylon All-Weather was also actually greater than the average of the others. Price tags never tell the foil story!

Trailing the rugged Black Hawks two-to-one In the best-of- even, all-United States series, ho Red Wings are looking for- vard to the faster ice at Olympla Neither team has been able to in away from home in the play >ffs. The Black Hawks hope to break up this home ice domina Ion and put an end to Ihe series n Chicago Friday. Detroit Coach Sid Abel, troubled because of injuries, was complain ng about the slowness of the ice n Chicago Stadium Monday when the Hawks hammered out a 3-1 •Ictory. Abel called it the worst ice he has ever seen and answered Chi cago Coach Rudy Pilous" remarks >f the Hawks being hungry. "They're not any hungrier than ve are. They just grabbed contro of the game in Chicago. We cer .ainly didn't want them to contro the game but they did." Abel said one reason the Hawks took charge was due to the los. of defenseman Marcel Pronovos who suffered a foot Injury befor Detroit's 3*1 victory at Olympla Saturday night. In addition to Pronovost, War en Godfrey and goalie Terry Sawchuk have been Injured in the series. Godfrey suffered a bruised knee Monday night and it is doubtful he will be ready tonight Sawchuk injured his left shoul der In the series opener In Chi cago last week but is ready to play. Bids Accepted on Snlu Cage Court The City Park Commission Tuesday afternoon accepted the low bid of $1,525 from the Marcal Asphalt Paving Co. for the construction of a basketball court in Salu Park, said Samuel E. Sanner, architect for the commission. Sanner said only two bids were submitted. The second bid from R & R Construction Co. was for $1,580. The asphalt court, when constructed, will be 50 by 80 feet. The Marcal Co. will start construction of the court as soon as weather permits. The Park Commission plans a "grand opening" of Salu Park May 6. POLL 1YEAR GUARANTEED ON ALL REPAIR WORK GflTCIVS DEPT STOKE Gattly lulldlrtfl W. 3rd St., Alton Read Telegraph Want Ads Dtfly Caught In Whirlpool One of the guards decided t take a swim on the Missouri en of the bridge. When he dove in h never came up. He dived into on of those whirlpools I mentione< His body was never recoverei After the war things were different. The old bunch had thinned I out. They are still In France or up yonder. You didn't have free use of the islands any more: Prohibition had come and there were stills on most of them. It didn't pay to stop and look around unless you were well known. The small boats that used to carry fish were carrying sugar. It took some time for the government to stop this. Some they never stopped. When prohibition came into effect August Miller ran a bar on Broadway, he had a sign in the window, "The first of July will be the last of August." A large part of the Eagle packet line was destroyed at Cairo in the ice one winter never to be replaced. This line was greatly missed in Alton. j One morning a beautiful cruis-' er came into the Alton harbor. It! jwas owned by a Chicago gang| (leader with him aboard. The) boat stayed until he was told to leave. The same boat lies in the sand at the foot of Henry street. When the water is down you can! still see part of it. The boat was I bought up North and brought! here. A bad storm sunk it.
