WSDffBSBAV, APRIL IS, 19.13 ALTON EVENING TBtEQRAPH ItlfMMP Current Events on Alton Lake in* Rounin' the Piasa Country With HAKOLD BRAND m Pleasant Towboat Trip It yoy have ever thought that working on a river towboat would be an interesting Job, you are correct according to Mrs. Blanche Duff in, a cook, 2811 North St., who has returned recently from a 73-day trip on inland waterways. She prepared meals about the St. Louis Zephyr for a crew of 12. Normally, Mrs. ftuffln works for shot-tor periods of time but there has been a need for more cooks and she remained on the job until she was relieved. In fact, some crew members have been on the job continuously as long as 136 days due to a shortage of skilled river workers. , A towboat employe, who, works six hours on duty and six off around the clock, earns one day off with pay for every two they work. Mrs. Duff in has earned 36' & days loave during her recent trip. Vlflltrd Southern Ports The ' Zephyr's cargoes consisted of gasoline and oils which were transported mostly in southern waters to ports near New Orleans and as far north as Cincinnati. Mrs. Duffin related that while Al- tonians were shivering from cold weather, and often snow, she was In southern waters where trees and flowers were in bloom. The boat made many stops at southern ports but Mrs. Duffin preferred to stay aboard. Crew members would go into town to buy personal items and needed supplies for her and themselves. She said that Capt. Marion Stiles and the crew were considerate and pleasant which added to her enjoyment of being a ship's cook. Mrs. Duffin has been enjoying her leave by visiting friends and relatives. She is scheduled to return aboard the Zephyr in May, or sooner if the cook shortage continues. Popular Grapple Lake The crappie were biting so well at Lake Wappapello, Mo., last week that it was no problem to catch the limit according to Mr. and Mrs. Leo Pohlman, Godfrey, and Mr. and Mrs. Fred Vancil, 232.1 Central Ave. The two couples caught crappie up to 17 inches in lenglh and brought back the limit of 80. The fish averaged three quarters to one-and-one quarter pounds after they were dressed. Some of their fish were caught by casting with a Weber shad plub. Pohlman related that the weather was ideal; water condition favor- able ami fish were really striking during their two-day stay. Another group of Altonians visited Lake WappapeHo, recently, and also enjoyed a successful fishing trip. They landed many crappie weighing up to one-and-a-half pounds. The group included Dr. O. I. Allen, 2422 Edwards St., his brother, Dr. Lyle Allen, 1320 Washington Ave., Milton J. Smith, 1825 Washington Ave., and Emmet Todd, 2209 College Ave. Sportsman Migration' Others who fished at the lake with good results recently, were Edgar Hoefert, 2221 Mills Ave., and Samuel Moore Sr., 2219 Mills Ave. , Reports indicate that crappie fishing Is at its best at the lake from now until June 1. Perhaps we should annex Lake Wappapello to greater Alton area so that the city sportsman population will not be deleted during the next six weeks.
