The final qualifying tourna ment will be held September 25-27. at the site of last year's Classic -- Clark Hill Reservoir at Hickory Knob Sate Resort Park, McCormiek. South Car olina. Nothing Like Fishing These youngsters are getting a real tasle of fishing at Lake Fa.vettevllle under (he guidance of the Ctty summer pro- gram. The fish aren't whoppers by any means, but (hen feisty perch can give just about anyone all the fast action they can handle.

For A Carefree Holiday Coast Guard Offers Safety Tips Fuel your boat only during 1 daylight hours and keep a fire extinguisher close by. Everyone not involved with the operation should remain ashore. Remember to extinguish all open fires, shut off all electrical equipment, close all compartments and don't smoke. Ventilate all compartments throughly prior to starting your engine. Overloading and improper loading of boats lead to capsiz- ings, sinkings and falls overboard, the greatest cause of boating accident fatalilies. Always observe the safe capacity limit of your boat. Never step on the side of the craft when entering or leaving. A n d , while on board, keep the weight distri- , buted along the centerline, remain seated. and A Coast Guard approved personal flotation device can save your lite, but only if it is worn. Gasoline vapors are heavier than air and ca nbecome trapped in the bilges and compartments. Always ventilate your boat for at least five minutes Overpowering your boat does not necessarily increase speed. In fact, it may slow the craft, and it certainly will increase the costs of installation and fueling. Each boat is designed to operate at peak' efficiency with a certain horsepower which is listed on the capacity plate.

Downs, Acting District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District, said this week. Wednesday Colonel Downs met with members of the Public Boat Dock Owners Association in Harrison and discussed with them the huge crowds expected at the Corps lakes over the holiday .weekend and the possibility that there may not be enough permanent camping sites available because of high lake levels and the large influx of holiday campers. Following the meeting. Colonel Downs and engineer personnel looked at about two-thirds of the campgrounds at Bull Shoals, Norfork and Greens Ferry Lakes. Colonel Downs said that arrangements are being made to provide a temporary camping site for all campers if all permanent camping sites are occupied. Overflow camp sites, temporary parking lots and mads are being constructed and park rangers will maintain radio contact with all campgrounds and direct campers to parks where either permanent or overflow sites are available, tf all permanent and overflow sites become occupied, then the campers will be directed to ore-designated t e m p o r a r y sites within the developed campgrounds for use during the l o n g weekend. Resident Engineers at all lakes are committed to accommodate all campers this weekend. Campgrounds operated by the Little Rock District where the additional temporary sites will be available are at Beaver, Blue Mountain, Bull Shoals, Oeers Ferry, Nimrod /and Norfork Lakes in north Arkansas and Clearwater and Table Rock Lakes in southern Missouri, and the Arkansas River. The Little Rock District has e m p l o y e d several hundred t e m p o r a r y park aides t o augment the permanent ranger force in assisting the large numbers of visitors expected over the long holiday period and the remainder of the summer. The high water in all Little Rock District lakes is dropping except at Bull Shoals, where it is cresting and should start to fall about July 1. The recently developed Ozark Isle campground at Bull Shoals has 115 fully developed campsites with only six campsites occupied Thursday afternoon. Arrangcrnen/s are being made for a temporary boat dock with adequate parking and access roads by July third for Ozark Isle.
