Page 8 July 14, 1977 Quad-City Herald // A few years ago some friends were headed for an outing in their boats. Sud- denly the motor in the lead boat quit. The skipper of the boat behind couldn&apos;t stop in time and crashed into the boat that had gone dead in the water. What had started out as a carefree weekend changed in a few seconds to injury, suffering and costly damage to a pair of boats. We can cut down the od- ds of things such as this by knowing more about our boats. In automobile driving, safety people say to keep at least a car length of distance from the car ahead for every 10 miles per hour of speed. A boat should be piloted in somewhat the same way, so that you can stop in time, but no simple rule exists for a safe distance because boats differ so. One way to find out how your boat reacts is to drop a floating marker in calm water and run past the marker at various speeds. As you pass, close your throttle and see how long it takes you to stop. In some cases, boaters will be surprised at how lit- tle distance is needed. It can also be a surprise how much longer it takes with a wind at your back or when q;olf tourney set for weekend The 1st annual In- vitational Golf Tournament co-hosted by Lake Woods and Alta Lake clubs will take palce this weekend at the two local courses. Practice rounds will be in progress Friday with the tw<.rlay tourney set for Saturday and Sunday. Tournament directors said over $1,000 in prizes will be given to winners. Events are open to both men and women with flights according to han- dicaps. another, and finally a whole chorus. Some experts say that when all that noise is going on, the frogs are harder to find because they are back in good cover. They say that when a frog is out in the open, it tends to be a little quieter. When pursuing these stentorian-voiced critters, be sure your boat is stable. It's possible to reach out too far and find yourself swimming among the lily pads in the darkness as your boat flips.

MethowLocals E gy p ly d Iola Foster of the ner su 1, on ecrease Brewster nursing home made a brief visit home Monday. Jana Langley and children, Grand Coulee, visited at the Chan Langley home Tuesday morning Mr. and Mrs. Lee Baublitz had Mr. Tom Landon and son for dinner Sunday in honor of their seventh wedding anniver- sary. Nancy Johnson of Wenatchee spent the weekend at home with parents, Mr. and Mrs. Leith Johnson. The outlook for electric energy supply in the region worsened during June, ac- cording to a report issued today by Merrill F. Schultz, Director of Coordination for the Northwest Power Pool. Precipitation over the entire region in June was much below normal and resulted in the forecast of January through July volume runoff of the Columbia River at The Dalles dropping from about 57 million acre-feet (mar) on June 1 to around 54 mar on July 1. This July 1 forecast of runoff is more than 10 percent below the historical minimum and a little over half of the historical average. Schultz said that the energy situation requires continued cutback of elec- tric energy consumption and that if this curtailment is not achieved voluntarily there is still a strong risk of mandatory curtailments being necessary. He added, however, that he is encouraged by the continued voluntary reduc- tion in electric energy con- sumption in the region. For the four weeks en- ding June 30 the region's electric energy consump- tion was about 6 percent below the forecast for June and it was 3 percent below the corresponding figure for June of 1976. "If consumption con- tinues to run below forecast because of volun- tary efforts as it has in May and June, the probability of mandatory curtailments is very small," Schultz said. Kelly and Shane Randall and friend Suzie Davis all of Omak spent the week with Julia Taylor. Granddaughter Geri Hough, Pateros, spent the weekend with Mr. and Mrs. Leith Johnson and grand- daughter Gayle Windle returned home to Brewster Sunday after a two week vacation with them. Mr. and Mrs. Mike Bolinger and son Reece, Anchorage, Alaska, Mr. and Mrs. Harold McCall, Methow, and Mrs. Helen Elledge, Manhatten Beach, California, made a sight- seeing trip to Washington Pass, Sun Mountain and Winthrop one day last week. Sunday they enjoyed some time at Alta Lake. Julia Taylor was a recent visitor in Cashmere as a guest of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Guthrie. Also visiting the Guthries were Mrs. Guthrie's three brothers, Ray, Jesse, and Paul Eubanks of Arkansas. Sunday Pastor Larry Trim of Methow filled in for Pastor Magnuson at the Pateros Methodist Church at 9:30 and then rushed back to Methow for ser- vices at his own church. Doug and Helen Zahn Apple Pie Jambo00 ee goes way back By Roger Barnes, staffwriter The "Walldn' and Talldn'" Morn and Apple Pie is a phrase often bantered about; and for the weekend of July 23 and 24 perhaps should be paraphrased to read everyone and apple pie as that is the weekend set aside for Pateros' an- nual Apple Pie Jamboree. In an old issue of the Herald-Reporter, July 16, 1947, to be exact, it stated that "All roads will lead to Pateros, Saturday night, July 19, when a gigantic jamboree is to be presen- ted for everyone's enter- tainment. Originally spon- sored by Pateros Grange 949, all civic organizations are wholeheartedly helping in the arrangements for the biggest affair that Pateros has ever put on." Talking to persons in- volved in this year's celebration, one would think that the celebration is an updated, old- fashioned, expanded ver- sion of that first event. Expanded to two days, the celebration will boast an ice cream social, apple parade has been changed to a parade featuring local residents and floats and kids and pets. It is doubtful if the Governor will sur- prise residents by par- ticipation in this year's parade, as Gov. Man C. Wallgren did on that first day, but organizers have stated that this will be the biggest and best Jamboree that Pateros has seen in many years. And as a 1957 story in the Herald said, "...Pateros will be the place...the community will welcome neighbors to its Apple Pie Jamboree. In Pateros the apple is king, except on this one day of the year in the name of King Apple visitors to the Jamboree are treated like Kings." Bridgeport Locals Mr. and Mrs. Don Haft from Velva, North Dakota, spent last weekend with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Bob Eng. Don has been at- tending special classes at Seattle University. Youth crusade The youth crusade at the Bridgeport Assembly of God Church was pronoun- ced a success last week with attendance jumping from 25 to 96 in the four- night period. On Wed- nesday night the special events included a western dress night with prizes going to Kris Conklin and Jerry Plumb for the best costumes. Winners in the contest to bring new mem- bers were Jeanette Long, Brewster, first place; Zane Wells, first runner-up; and three second runners-up, Jerry Day, Jerry Plumb and Rene Wells. you have to start turning -- and Don Roberts enjoyed pie, boat and raft races, at various speeds to miss it.
