GORDON KERR, Alberta's chief wildlife biol- ogist is expressing concern that Alberta's rabies outbreak may really flare-up when warm weather returns and skunks come out of hibernation. Skunks are considered to be major carriers of rabies. Diseased animals reported since the outbreak last year include seven dogs, nine coyotes, seven cows, a pig, a cat and a skunk. Might be a good idea if you take that pet of yours down to the vets now and have it vaccinated against rabies. THOSE WESUEYS are still at it. First, Paul of 822 22nd Ave. S., took the lead in the Fort Pierce, Florida Fishing Tournament with a 22-pound red snapper. Then Allen G. 'Wesley of Granum took the lead in another classification with a 54-pound amber- jack Now word is that Paul has taken still another lead with a 30-pound, four-ounce grey grouper. Tour- nament awards and trophies will be presented in 27 categories after the contest closes April 15. PEL BALDERSON OF MAGRATH, president of the Tyrrell's Lake Fishermen's Association, is all set to order rainbows from the Jumping Rain- bow Ranch at Livingston, Montana. Fel has been spending some' more time down at TyrrelTs recently and he reports that it's all two adults can do to polish off one Tyrrell's Lake Rainbow at one sitting now. Highway 52 Feeders are again taking grain from farmers; Les Handley has again offered his ser- vices for a big auction sale. Contributions may be sent directly to the Tyrrell's Lake Fishermen's As- sociation, Box 495 Lethbridge, or Box 86, Magrath. 1MI U1HMIDGI HHMO 9 Palmer stays second HONOLULU (AP) Tom Shaw, whose golf runs from not o cold, took a one-stroke lead ver Arnold Palmer and Devritt Weaver Friday in the second round of the Hawaiian Open GoH Tournament. Shaw snapped out of a year- long slump three weeks ago when he beat Palmer by two strokes for the title in the Bing Crosby National Pro-Am. Since hen, however, the 28-year-old wasn't made a cut, hasn't quali- fied for the final two rounds. He used some phenomenal putting, including 55- and 60-foot monsters, to record a five-un- der-par 67 on the Waialae Coun- try Club course for a 36-hole total of 135. Palmer, who took a one-over six on the final hole, had a 69 for 136 and was tied at that figure with the husky Weaver, who had a 68. Defending cham- pion Bruce Crampton followed at 138 after a pair of 69s. Lee Trevino took a 73 for 141. Billy Casper had a Jack Nicklaus went to 74 for 144. John Schlee, the first round eader, fell back with a 74. The lone Canadian entrant, Ben Kern of Toronto, just failed :o make the cut when he posted a 74 Friday to go with Thurs- day's 72 and had a 36-hole total 146. t SPORTS FANS!

(AP-CP) Although Muhammad Ali fights Joe Frazier for the world heavy- weight boxing championship March 8 at New York City, the World Boxing Association still does not recognize the former champ in its latest ring listings. The WBA, which lists George Foreman as the No. 1 contender to Frazier's title, stripped Ali of his title when he refused induc- tion into military service. The WBA lists George Chu- valo of Toronto, Canadian champion, No. 8 among the heavyweights, Canadian welter- weight champion Donate Pad- uano of Montreal was ranked No. 10 in the world, and Edmon- ton's Al Ford was No. 7 among the lightweights.
