ABOUT THE WEEK OF NOV. 7, 1963, Hamilton County, N. Y. is the subject of a new kind of recreational map that pinpoints exact locations where you can hunt, fish, camp, hike, ski, view and tour in this nationally-famous Adirondack vacationland.

According to the publisher, one purpose of this “Sportsman’s Map of Hamilton County” is to solve the widespread problem of locating specific parcels of public land for hunting and fishing and gaining easy access to this land.

More than 200,000 acres of State Forest Preserve are open to sportsmen in Hamilton County. Yet visitors to this area often find it difficult to locate these parcels and gain access to them without trespassing on private property.

At BLUE MOUNTAIN, a regular meeting of the Blue Mountain Lake Association was held at the Fire Hall. Various reports were heard and discussed, including the feasibility and cost of both a sewer system and a water system.

It was decided the Association would place an advertisement in the Adirondack Guide for 1964 and to order calendars again. The matter of making the public beach more attractive was discussed and a committee was appointed to work on this.

Committees were also to prepare a directory to encourage visitors to see the entire village to work with the Fire Company for a Christmas Party; to review the dues assessed; and to plan entertainment for the coming year.

The Three-County Foothills Council of Girl Scouts, which includes Troops in Old Forge and Inlet, are conducting an area Girl Scout Fund Drive. The Old Forge Junior and Cadette Troops will meet with their leaders in the Old Forge Fire Hall to organize a house-to-house canvass here.

Navy Ensign William J. Hartnett, son of Mrs. Helen Johnson, of Eagle Bay, N. Y. recently reported to the Naval Auxiliary Air Station Whiting Field, Milton, Florida, as a student naval aviator.

This plane is comparable in performance to the fighter aircraft used by the Navy in World War II. The training at Whiting also includes precision flying, the principles of instrument flight and radio navigation. In the final phase of flight instruction students are trained in two and four-plane formation flying and air-to-air gunnery.

Graduates of the initial course report to Saufley Field at nearby Pensacola to be trained in aircraft carrier flight operations, another step in earning their designations as naval aviators.
