FRIDAY, APRIL 1?, 1933 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAOITHJW Itteer fttratef Current Events on Alton Lake tntf Roamfa' the Flaw Country Wlfh HAROLD BRAND I Uiinj{protts Federal safety regulations pro* hlblt any boat from approaching within 600 feet of the tatnter gates' on Alton Locks and Dam, upstream or downstream. The turbulent waters are dangerous for all craft. A spokesman at the dam related that there Is a swift, boll- Ing upstream current for about 150 feet Immediately below the gates. A feAv years ago, four men In a cruiser were caught in the upstream current which was more powerful than the boat's motor. The craft was swept Into the gates end destroyed within 30 seconds. However, the men were able to gain hold of ladders on the dam and climb to safety. On other occasions and at other locks and dams, venturesome boat- owners were not so fortunate. Will Enforce Regulations Comdr. Harry Kessler, Coast Guard Auxiliary, Flotila 9, said the federal regulations will be enforced by enlisted men as well as 1heir unit. Although the railroad bridge is about 800 feet below the dam, it has been suggested that boatowners avoid the waters between the bridge and the tainter gates. The upper lock wall extends 575 feet upstream from the gates and it is advised that boatowners avoid going any closer to the dam. There are no exceptions to the foregoing rules a spokesman said. However, Lock and Dam em- ployes are prepared for any emergencies such as when power failure causes a boat to drift Into the tainter gates. Ever watching, the employes stand by to give Immediate assistance to anyone in distress. Lake Level Bulletins The tainter gates are raised'dur- Ing high water stages to prevent flooding In the Orafton area, During those times, the upstream cur- rent below the dam Is stronger and much more dangerous, Usually, when the gates ^nre raised and the level of Alton Lake is lowered, many boats are left stranded In the mud at boat docks. However, in the future, a spokesman at the dam will issue an advance warning which will be published in this column or the news columns. Missing Ron! Last fall, Adolph nolnhardt. 209 Wisconsin Ave., kept his 16-foot boat In the Pere Marquette Park area. He used the boat on .three duck hunting trips without bagging a single fowl. Yet, when he loaned tho craft to friends they were much more successful on their duck hunting trips. Roinhardt loft the boat there during winter months and last saw It in February. He doesn't know whether the boat drifted downstream or was carried away. The rraft has a 30-Inch homo made deck; a V-bow, and was painted drab green. Ho would like to bear from anyone who IIHS seen the boat recently. More fortunate, was Lester Arbuthnot, 2000 Central Ave., who 8 Iitcttmbenli Reflected In Chtrateira Township HAHTFtffiD - The official can* vass of votes east In the Chouteau •township election has been eomplet» ed.
