THURSDAY, JUNB §7, 1968 John Stetson ALTO* ff2LfiGHA£M Trophy Trout Bale Eitierick, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lefoy Emerlck of 83 Eck hafd St., Wood River, and June graduate of Wood River Community High School, has be* come a member of the "Lunkers club" at the Montauk, Mo. trout fishing area where the youth caught a three pound 12 ounce trout earlier this week. Emerick and Gary Morgan,, also of Wood River, had camped at Montauk for several days oi trout fishing. One morning Emerick was having a problem with snags and Morgan was applying the needle a bit. Suddenly Emerick hooked into the oversize trout and said, "see Gary another snag, except this one moves." When the fish broke water Morgan was convinced and splashed into the pool to help Emerick land the trophy size trout. Wilderness Guides Bert and Phil Hyde, 21 and 18, of 1813 Liberty, Alton, Illinois, have been selected to serve as members of the staff at the Charles L.

Bert's and ship, the Explorers will learn canoeing and camping skills and acquire an appreciation for the wilderness, Safe Boating Going boating without the proper equipment isn't Just fool ish - it's also against the law The committee for National Saf< Boating Week, June 304uly 6 points out that on Federal wa ters, there should be a life-sav ing device for everyone aboard a pleasure craft. Craft up to 16 feet operated on Federal waters must carry proper lights and a fire extinguisher, if of close( construction; craft from 16 to 26 feet long must carry in addition a hand whistle or horn audible for at least one-half mile. Larg er pleasure craft, up to 65 feet long, require a hand or power operated whistle audible at least one mile, and a bell. Most states have similar equipment requirements. Other items of equipment aren't mentioned in the regula ions, but common sense dictates that you carry them: Anchor, line, paddle, first aid kit lashlight. fenders, tool kit, extra can of fuel, compass anc distress flare. Common sense demands that )oat owners make sure they mow their craft's capacity and never exceed it. It's very simple — just check he manufacturer's capacity )late for his recommendation. If your craft is one of the few without such a plate, your marine dealer can advise you on pour boat's safe weight limit. If your boat should capsize or iwamp, take this word of ad- ice from boating safetyexperts: )on't attempt to swim to shore, or it is probably much further han it looks; stay with the boat Phil's crews-will take ten day trips. Under their leader- — most pleasure craft will stay afloat even when capsized or illed with water. Aussies Want Pros in Meet WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Australian tennis officials have Just a week to try to persuade other countries that professionals should be allowed to play in the Davis Cup—and the odds are stacked against them. Tennis sources at Wimbledon, where pros and amateurs are competing together for the first time, said most delegates are likely to vote against the plan when the Davis Cup committee meets in London next Thursday. Bob Kelleher, president of the U.S. Lawn Tennis Association, dropped a broad hint that he will not be supporting the Australians "We are not against it in principle, but we don't think the Dispute Marks Legion Victory Alton defeated Dupo, 6-0, in an American Legion baseball game here Wednesday that was called because of a dispute after five innings had been completed. The Dupo manager ordered his team off the field after one of his base runners had been ruled out The umpire subsequently ruled a forfeiture in favor of Alton. Rick Reidt was the winning Alton hurler, yielding only three hits, striking out three and walking a pair. Vogt, the losing Dupo pitcher, was trounced for 10 hits, allowed six runs, walked two and struck out two. Terry Middleton, John King and BeMt each collected two hits for the winners. Alton faces Fairmont City at East St. Louis today at 4:30 o'clock. Cancer Strikes Auburn Coach AUBURN, Ala. (AP)—Auburn football Coach Ralph "Shug' r Jordan is expected to make complete 1 recovery from cancer A medical bulletin released through the Auburn Athletic Department Wednesday reported Jordan, 57, was diagnosed to have cancer "in its early stages.'" Jordan underwent exploratory surgery Monday at St. Francis Hospital In Columbus, Ga. He is scheduled to be discharged to day. The bulletin did not state the location of the cancer but at the time he entered the nosplal, the Alabama Journal reported Jordan would undergo surgery lor 9 prostate ailment. time is ripe to bring in the pros," Kelleher said. Australia, winner of the Davis Cup eight times in the last nine years, has changed its opinion after years of bitter opposition to having pros In the tournament. The cream has been skimmed off Australia's Davis Cup talent by the promoters in the last year. Roy Emerson, Fred Stolle, Tony Roche and John Newcombe have all joined the touring professionals. The current Wimbledon tournament is only the fifth open event since the International Lawn Tennis Federation sanctioned open tennis three months ago. Each member nation was given freedom to deride its own policy, and even tennis officials find it hard to agree on who is an amateur and who is not. At Wimbledon 79 players- some acknowledged pros, others ranked as amateurs—are playing for prize money. Rain continued to spoil the first open Wimbledon tournament Wednesday. Play was restricted to 3% hours. It has rained all three days. Wednesday's big duel was between two Americans—pro Dennis Ralston of Los Angeles and amateur Cliff Richey of San Angelo, Tex. Ralston won 6-3, 3-6, 7-9, 6-3, 13-11. Amateur giant-killer Herb FitzGibbon of Garden City, N.Y. -who on Tuesday knocked out Yugoslav pro Nikki Pillc-was eliminated by Britain's Mark Cox in another five-set cliffhanger, 4-6, 6-3, 7-9, 9-7,11.0-2 hanger, 4-6, 6-3, 7-9, 9-7,12-10.

The 25-year-old Williams, who left Plymouth June 1 as part o a 35-yacht fleet, passed the fin ish line at Brenton Reef Tower at 2:33 a.m. to post an unoffl cial time of 25 days, 19 hours and 33 minutes. This comparec with the 27 days, 23 hours and 57 minutes clocked by French Navy Lt. Eric Tabarly in the ast such race in 1964. There was some question about the course Williams took near the end of the trip, howev er, and it was not immediately known whether he would be de clared the official winner. A member of the race com mittee said Williams had sailed )etween Nantucfcet Light anc Nantucket Island whereas the amended instructions to the racers told them to sail south of Vantucket Light. The distance of the race on he straight line is about 3,000 miles, but Williams said he ogged close to 4,000 miles in all.
