At the same time, police and fire, officials continued dragging opera- tions and search of the lake area. Broader attention is now being given to lakefronl section near the Canandaigua outlet and off the Swimming School because Elic ex- tensive probing of the water off the Pier had produced no results.

This explained, thai ic number of elms, long Canan- aigua's No. 1 tree, is declining nd thai they arc being supplanted y Norway maples and oilier ies less susceptible to destructive iscases and insects.
