JACKSON, Mich. lUP) An
ocean-going vessel is sitting hun
dreds of miles from navigable wa

dore Conovers plan to go to col

his converted whale boat down the
Ohio River to the Mississippi,
thence via the Gulf of Mexico to
Tampa, Fla.. and his goal, the Uni
versity of Tampa.
A year ago the bogey of expenses
thwarted Conover's idea of attend
ing the southern college. There was
the problem of transportation as
well as housing.
So Conover got a 28-foot ex
Navy whale boat at an auction for
$130. Since then he has converted
it into a slcek-power-driven cabin

his task. The city water superin
tendent, D. J. Stellingworth, con
tributed a discarded impellor wheel
from one of the city's deep well
water pumps for a propeller.
Conover built a 14-foot cabin
containing seats, bunk, table, closet
and kitchenette. He installed a nev. '
marine engine and a :i4-lool masl
for sail power. Tidily -seven feel1
