Blame chemical for fish deaths MILO (CP) Hundreds of dead whitefish, believed killed by a chemical used to control water vegetation, have been sighted in 'McGregor Lake reservoir, a popular fishing, water skiing and swimming spot 80 miles southeast of Calgary Officials of the provincial department of the environment said Tuesday that they are awaiting the results of a laboratory examination of several fish, but they suspect that the chemical acrolein killed the surface-feeding fish The chemical was dropped into the feeder canal that extends from Carseland Dam to Lake McGregor to kill water plants that impede the water flow The department gave permission to Bow River irrigation district to use it The irrigation district spread acrolein in late July and within a short time whitefish began going belly-up at the north end of the reservoir near the canal's entrance Gerry Thompson, a fisheries biologist with the department of lands and forests, said the department first learned of the fish kill about 10 days ago. He said less than one per cent of the whitefish population in the lake was killed Presentations invited at milk price hearing EDMONTON (CP) No specific proposals will be made by the Public Utilities Board (PUB) when it holds a hearing on milk pricing Aug 26 and 27 in Red Deer. W. D. Abercrombie. a PUB official, said Tuesday. Instead, people will be in- vited to make presentations to the board covering whatever area of milk pricing or procedures for establishing prices they wish, he said. The hearing is mainly aim- ed at establishing a formula which could be applied on milk prices. That formula likely would entail basic costs and their effect on pricing so that changes in price could be made quickly and accurately instead of the present procedure, he said As it is now. Mr. Abercrom- bie said, some producers have said changes in price often lag nearly a year behind the need. The idea behind a formula would be to have a procedure whereby milk prices could fluctuate without public hearings, he said. The formula itself would have to be review- ed periodically to make sure it met current conditions "The whole aim is to be more responsive and quicker in setting prices based on costs."

(Times in Mountain Daylight Time.) EDMONTON (CP) An estimated 150 men, supported by four helicopters and ten bulldozers, are fighting a forest fire 40 miles southeast of Grande Prairie, Dick Robertson of the department of lands and forests said Tuesday The blaze, estimated to cover acres, is under partial control Mr. Robertson, in a news release, also said another fire in the area now is estimated to cover five hundred acres, up from eleven acres Monday Meanwhile, a restriction has been placed on all open campfires in the province's foothills forests, effective immediately. The restriction stems from a high to extreme fire hazard which exists in the foothills forests from Grande Prairie south-to the U.S border. While the restriction is in effect, campfires may be built only in established campstoves at campsites Reflectors for boats OTTAWA (CP) Radar re- flectors are to become man- datory for non-metallic vessels and for those less than 65 6 feet, the transport depart- ment announced.

Alberta lottery chiefs forced to lower sights t EDMONTON (CP) Alberta lottery officials, who hoped to make a profit on ticket sales for the first Western Canada lottery, have lowered their sights to the break-even point for the first draw "We now hope to break even on the first draw and really get the ball rolling after that." says Ross McBain, Alberta division chairman for the lottery Mr. McBain said ticket sales have been slow because sellers in both Edmonton and Calgary have been occupied with their own C'huckwagon Sweepstakes in Calgary and the Canadian Derb> Sweepstakes here In the October preliminary draw ol the Western Canada lottery 1.900 prizes of will be awarded A lirst prize tops the list for the lirst linal draw Nov 2.
