Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Jolurdoy, Februqry 8, 197Z -'THI IETHBRIDGI HWAID 13 Magnimen rallies in skating 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 YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer Three Lethbridge teams and one from 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 Kilters 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 S'trathcona 6M1 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 amsolalion 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 the second. The Griffins came out fight- Ing in the second hah" notching 16 points to the Trojans' seven after 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 Bjorkman 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. Tho Kittens trailed 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, hut watched 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 finaJ 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.

Our skiers didn't have it By BRUCE LEVETT Canadian Press Sporte Editor SAPPORO, Japan (CP) The Canadian women Alpine kiers had just been wiped out on downhill slopes of Mount Eniwa Saturday when word ame through that figure skater Caren Magnussen of Vancouver lad rallied in the school figures and was in a solid position for a medal. Chef de mission Frank Shaughnessy of Montreal has leer saying right along that the 9-year-old North American hampion is Canada's "only real hope for a medal" in these Vinter Games. From the looks of things after ix events and two days of com- jetitlon he may be right. Canada has nary a point, let alone a medal. But Miss Mag- ussen's efforts in the compul- ory school figures, completed aturday, left her in a strong msition for at least a bronze rcedal, and possibly silver or [old. ,UCKY IN DRAW Among the best freestyle katers in the world, the Gana- lian girl had the luck of the draw with her after the finished :hird in the compulsory figures x of them. She drew No. 18 starting position in the freestyle windup scheduled Monday. That means she will be able o watch the performances of icr challengers before going on ,he ice and tailoring her own performance accordingly. There are 19 girls in the event. In Hie women's downhill, a chubby 17-year-old Swiss girl Marie Therese Nadig, won the gold medal and 20-year-old Sue Sorrock gave the United States its first Olympic downhill meda ever by taking the bronze. Between them, winning the silver, came the heavily-favored Annemarie Proell of Austria the 1971 World Cup champion still nursing the effects of a bad cold. I still can't believe I won a gold the excited Mis: Nadig said as she was mobbec by team-mates. Her winning time for the Hi-mile course wa one minute 36.68 seconds. TOPS CANADIANS It was Carolyne Oughlon o Calgary who posted the best Ca nadian tiec for 18th place. Laurie Kreiner o Timmins, Ont, finished 20th i the 45-girl field, her siste Kathy was 33rd. Judy Crawfor of Toronto wound up 27th. Canadians have historicall had little success in this even of Olympic competition. Lucil Wheeler of St. Jovitp, Que., the only Canadian to win medal in the bronz in 1956. Both sides of divided Ger many scored heavily in th competition Saturday, Wes Germans winning gold medal in the two-man bobsled and tf metre men's speedskating whil East Germany captured th prized Nordic combined cham pionship. West Germany leads th medal table with two gold ant the points list with 30 after com pletion of six events of the scheduled over an 11-day span. Outside of Miss Magnussen'i performance, the best individ ual Canadian showing so far ha been I5lh by speed skater Kevin Sirois of Edmonton in the metres. GERMANS ARE 1-2 Under ideal conditions, Wolf gang Zimmerer and Pete Utzschneider won the two-man bobsled title with a total time o for four las two Satin-day. Horst Floth an< Pepi Bader, silver winners i 1968, did it again for a one-tm West German windup. Jea Wicki and Edy Hubacher o Switzerland were the brona winners. The two Canadian (cam never were in Ihe race. Bob Sto roy of Ottawa and Mike Hartley of Toronto placed 14th and Han Gchrig of Montreal and And Faulds of Burlington, wer 18th. A crowd of -111.000 turned on in the big outdoor m.iin rink t see Eriiard Keller of West Ger many win his second Olympi rxild medal. The 27-year-old dental studen won the 500-metre sprint for th second straight time in 3S.4 sei onds, an Olympic record.! lass Borjrs of Sweden was second and Valeri Mouratov of Russia third. Keller said he will retire from active competition this year. Keller camp off two false starts to finish with a spurt in the last 100 metavs that clipped 7-lOlhs of a second from the Olympic mark set by Dick McDermolt of the U.S. in 1964. But it was outside his official world record of .111.4 and a pond- ing mark of 311.0. Gerard C'.issan of Ottawa placed 29th and John dssiily of Montreal Mill. Ant Schonk of tho Netherlands, winner of the 000 metres Friday, slipped and wound up 34th. Ulrich Wehling, a 19-year-old ,udent fromHaUe in East Ger- many became the youngest der to win the Nordic com- jined-ski jumping and cross- ountry his coun- ryman Karl-Heinz Luck won 10 bronze. The silver went to auno Miettinen of Finland. Wehling's third-place finish in (he 15-kilometre-9.3-miIecross country race Saturday and a fourth placing in Fridy'a jump ig gve himenough points to win.Canada did not ente the combined. The figure skating compulso rics ended with world champion Beatrix Schuba of Austria hold- ing a lead of more thanlOO points as the nine judges gava tier a perfect score of ti.O in or- dinals. Miss Schuba 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. 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 Vat? 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 6.8: 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 fish farming experiments 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 Tyrrell's Lake attracts malny local resi- dents, it is veiy 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. EASED ON THESE PARAMETERS it is not eco- noinical 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. Eveiy 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 froin 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 Hie 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 (lie food sup- ply Planting large numbers of fish to supposedly de- plete the numbers of aquatic organisms, and there- by make Ilie 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. Tho'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 IS mph were recorded during about one- third of the census period. (Concluded next week.) Sugar Kings meet Falcons tonight The Lethbridge Sugar Kings will be out to regain their com- posure as they host two Alberta Junior Hockey League games this weekend.
