nearly 100 scuba divers participating many from clubs in San Anto nio The divers roamed the deeper portions where cans accumulate Nowak voiced the common theme of users giv ing their enjoyment of the river back in the form of cleanup effort We like diving said Nowak who was with the Northridge Park Baptist Church in San Antonio one of many church groups participating We feel like we can give something Davenport said he believed the overall condition of the river was better than in recent years He said intensified cleanup efforts by WORD on the upper portion had helped He added that this particular cleanup was very effective because they were able to increase efforts on the portion of the river within the city limits This is really part of the educational process to Divers play key role in finding deep holes By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer The depths of the Guadalupe River yielded tons of debris Saturday at the Friends For Rivers Cleanup mostly in the form of alu minum cans The water was a little murky compared to last year but were making a dent in said Tony Nowak who was diving below cliffs near the Preiss Heights area with a group from the Northridge Baptist Church Most of it we find feeling around with What were finding is pretty said Debbie OBryan who along with other divers reported finding tennis shoes watches one still a barrel and a propeller from a small outboard They also battled the river current while searching the bottom of the 15 to 30foot holes Fortunately the current was not that strong It tires you out but it washes the silt down said Nowak a diving master Phil Sims assistant coordinator of the clean up along with Roy Daniel said divers in the Hueco Springs area searched all day for a cer tain deep hole They finally found it around When we found that hole they started bringing it up in he said In the last 21 minutes three people got 41 let people know to keep it said Murphy That garbage should not be in MDAY 75 CENTS Vol 142 No 222
