Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Nbruwy I, If72 LITHMIDOI HtlALD FOOTBALL GREATS CHECK IN Don Jonas, left, outstanding player in the Canadian Football League this past season, and John Brockington, the National Foot- ball League's rookie of the year, check into the Park Plaza Friday afternoon, Brockington and Jonas are in Lethbridge for tonight's Kinsmen Sportsman's Dinner. LCI event ends this evening Three local teams triumph By LLOYD YAMAGISffi Herald Sports Writer Three Lethbridge teams and from Red Deer opened with victories in the first round of the second annual LCI Girl's Invitational Basketball Tourna- ment which got under way Fri- day. Winston Churchill Griffins, Catholic Central Kittecs and the host Clipper Queens from Leth- bridge moved into the "A" bracket along with Lindsay Thurber of Red Deer after last night's proceedings. The Griffirs officially open- ed the two day modified dou- ble knockout event bouncing Cranbrook 51 35 while the Kittens thumped Edmonton Eastglen Devils 40-23. The host Clipper Queens dumped Edmonton Strathcona while Lindsay Thurber edged Grassy Lake 37-35 in the only close encounter. The four clubs who suffered losses in their first meetings are now knocked out of con- tention for the championship title but have a shot at the Consolation trophy. In the tourney opener, Susan Frier came up with a brilliant Individual performance netting 20 big points pacing the Grif- fins over the Cranbrook Tro- jans. The Griffins picked up an early 13-5 first quarter lead and increased it to 25-15 after tiie second. The Griffins came out fight- ing in the second half notching 16 points to the Trojans' seven alter eight minutes of play and never looked back. Pat Schandor chipped in with 14 points for the Griffins while Rhonda Martinuk and Sara Francis added 11 and 10 points respectively. Vicky Bjorfcman led the Tro- jans with 10 points while Su- san Westrup managed eight. In the second contest of the day, the Catholic Central Kit- tens used a strong second quar- ter outburst to sink the East- glen Devils. The Kittens trailed 8-8 after the first quarter, but rammed in 15 points in the second to take a 21-14 half-time lead. Nancy Rice hooped 15 points for the kittens attack while Lynda Liber managed 13 points in a losing cause. Grassy Lake's last minute ef- fort fell short as they suffered a heart breaking 37-35 loss to Lindsay Thurber High School of Red Deer in the third game staged Friday. They held a slim 9-6 lead af- ter the first eight minutes of play, but watched Red Deer come back to take over the lead with a 17-14 score at half-time. The second half was no differ- ent than the first as they bat- tled it out right from the open- ing toss-up. Red Deer held their ground though and carrie da 30-26 lead into the final quarter of play. Jan Brown led Red Deer's of- fence with 17 points while Rose- mary Neuman added eight. Four of Brown's points came in the final quarter which proved to be a key factor. Linda Fettig swished 14 and Gerri Schmidt nine for the Grassy Lake chargers. ABC HOME OFFICE CLEANING Prop. MR. J.

Maenusven rallies in skating Our skiers didn't have it By BRUCE LEVETT Canadian PKM Sports Editor SAPPORO, Japan (CP) The Canadian women Alpine skiers had just been wiped out on the downfall alopes of Mount Eniwa Saturday when word came through that figure skater Karen Magnussen of Vancouver bad rallied in the school figures was in a solid position for a medal. Chef de mission Frank Shaughnessy of Montreal has beer saying right along that the 19-ytar-old North American champion is Canada's "only" real hope for a medal" in these Winter Games. From the looks of things after six events and two days of petition he may be right. Canada has nary a point, let alone a medal. But Miss Mag- nussen's efforts1 in the compul- sory school figures, completed Saturday, left her in a strong position for at least a bronze medal, and possibly silver or gold. LUCKY IN DRAW Among the best freestyle skaters in the world, the Cana- dian girl had the luck of the draw with her after the finished third in the compulsory figures ix of them. She drew No. 13 starting position in the freestyle windtip scheduled Monday. That means she will be able to watch the performances of her challengers before going on the ice and tailoring her own performance accordingly. There are 19 girls in the event. In the women's downhill, a chubby 17-year-old Swiss girl, Marie Therese Nadig, won the gold medal and 20-year-old Sue Corrock gave the United States its first Olympic downhill medal ever by taktaig the bronze. Between them, winning the silver, came the heavily-favored Annemarie Proell of Austria, the 1971 World Cup champion, stall nursing the effects of a bad cold, "I still can't believe I won a gold the excited Miss Nadig said as she was mobbed by team-mates. Her winning time for the iy4-mile course was one minute 36.68 seconds.

The figure skating eompubo rtes ended with nwid champion Beatrix Sehuba of Austria hold- ing a lead of move thanlOO IN TYRRELL LAKE do not necessarily display better growth rates or condition factors than those in other Alberta waters. For instance, samples taken at a comparable time in Dipping Lake (Merrill's Lake near Hill- spring) has greater average fork lengths and weights and similar coefficients of conditions. The population of trout in this lake was similarly small. Based on population estimates of and 250 rainbow trout in Tyrrell Lake and Dipping Vat Lake, at the sampling time, the population density would be about and 4.2 trout per acre, respectively. It is likely that populations of low density would display comparable growth rates in most southern Alberta waters. The results of fish farming experiments con- ducted, in four other lakes in southern Alberta indicate a range of average condition factors of 1.27 to 1.52. These are the findings from a study conducted by R. S. Radford, regional fisheries biologist for southern Alberta. Although TyrrelTs Lake attracts mainy local resi- dents, it is very popular despite the poor returns. A number of anglers were noted to return consistently, probably because of a lack of trout fisheries in ad- jacent waters. Since the aesthetics of the lake itself and the surrounding land are, not attractive it must be assumed that their prime interest is in angling. BASED ON THESE PARAMETERS it is not eco- nomical to stock Tyrrell Lake at previous rates. For example, the cost of each trout taken by angling was compared with an average cost of .50 cents for the other lakes studied. The cost per pound of fish harvested in Tyrrell Lake was compared with an average cost of .58 cents for the other waters. When one considers the low per cent return of fish it is difficult to justify stocking Tyrrell Lake. However, because the lake supports one of the few trout fisheries in the vicinity of Lethbridge (with large fish of satisfactory taste) public opinion con- cerning desirable economic returns has been miti- gated. This is obvious In light of the substantial Input of public monies towards stocking Tyrrell Lake. This sort of contribution would seem necessary if the lake is to be stocked in the future since the government should not be required to support such a luxury. Part of this cost could be realized by harvesting young of the year trout each fall by gill nets for com- mercial sale; survival of fish planted in the spring and summer. Over the winter appears very poor and some return could be realized from this practice. Also, the fact that survival of the 1970 introduc- tion was only 0.70 per cent suggests that the quality rather than the quantity of trout stocked should be increased. Fish should be introduced immediately after spring breakup (during the first week of May) not during the summer when water temperatures and ionic concentrations are high. This procedure would improve the chance of a successful introduction, rather than utilizing sheer numbers. These fish ought to be no less than three to four Inches in length and the annual stock should not ex- ceed Twice this amount did not provide a satisfactory fishery and appears to have been a waste. Every effort should be made to operate another creel survey if these recommendations are followed, in order to document the results. IN ADDITION, an educational campaign informing the public of successful angling techniques in Tyrrell Lake (based on the results of the creel survey) should be initiated. For example, shore fishing was only successful during the period from May to mid- July and following mid-September. Anglers trolling from boats had the best success at other times. Dry fly fishing was not productive at any time and very few fish were taken by this method. Ang- ling should be concentrated in the early morning and late evening since most fish were taken at these times. Angling success was found to be greatest during the first two weeks of July. Some method of aquatic weed control in the vicinity of the campsite would also assist shore fishermen since a proliferation of weeds occurs in this area. It should also, be pointed out that the reason for the poor returns from angling is not a result of an abundance of natural food. The quantity of aquatic organisms is not been measured but is probably no greater than that present in other waters in this re- gion. It has been shown that anglers were successful in catching a large proportion (18.2 per cent) of those fish which did survive; these results indicate that the harvest is not significantly affected by the food sup- ply, Planting large numbers of fish to supposedly de- plete the numbers of aquatic organisms, and there- by make the trout more susceptable to harvest, is a fallacy. An effort should be made to improve and expand the existing campsite facilities to encourage anglers to utilize this area. Hie wind will always discourage anglers, how- ever, since the area is characterized by prevailing northwest winds of high velocity. For example, winds in excess of 15 mph were recorded during about one- third of the census period. (Concluded next wok.) te the nine judges gava her a perfect score of 9.0 in or- dinals. Miss Sdiuba amassed points and said she didn't think runner-up Julie Holmes of the U.S., or anyone else could catch her. Miss Holmes had 20.5 ordi- nals and points. Sugar Kings meet Falcons tonight The Lethbridge Sugar Kings will be out to regain their com- posure as they host two Alberta1 Junior Hockey League games this weekend.

In their last outing the Sugar Kings suffered a 4-0 blow to the Calgary Canucks leaving them with a thin one-point lead over the Edmonton Maple Leafs for fourth spot. The Kings have 32 points to date while the Leafs rest in fifth place with 31. Tonight's encounter will get under way at p.m. while Sunday's tilt is set for 7 p.m. Both games will be staged at the Henderson Ice Centre. P.- SPORTS FANS! I I by GARY KIRK I KIRK'S TIRE SALES LTD.
