In finals of doubles? singles .Nastase, Tiriac keep rollin. CALGARY (CP) - Once considered the Gold Dust Twins of European tennis but now reported to be feuding, Hie Nastase and Ion Tiriac of Romania advanced Friday to the semi-finals of both doubles and singles of the Canadian indoor .tennis championships. The talented fonaer Davis Cup partners, major attractions of the $15,000 tournament at the Glercnore Racquets Club, were to me6t today in both categories. Nastjase earned his way into the semi-final round by defeat- ing Nick Kalo of Greece 7-5, 6^2 in singles. Tiriac had a tougher match but held off young Jer-gen Fassbender of West Germany 6-0, 7-6. In doubles, Nastase combined with Mike Estep of Dallas Tez., for a 6-4, 6-4 triumph over Karl Meiler of West Germany and Tito Vasquez of Argentina. Ti riac and Juan Gisbert of Spain coasted past Jas Singh of India and Gabriele Marcu of Romania for a 6-3, 6-4 victory. Neither Nastase nor Tiriac would comment on reports of the feud. Tiriac told one re- ACCOUNTANT REQUIRED BY FIRM OF CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS Must have 3 to 5 years experience arvd be ciblo to prepuro financial statement. Reply in writing to Box 136/ lethbridge Herald porter* Friday: "I don't speak good English" and he avoided an interview. Earlier in the week, Tiriac spoke at length with another reporter but the rumors were not discussed. Despite Tiriac's international reputation, his victory in singles was the first.major upset. He was seeded seventh and Fassbender third. Nastase, one of the few $l00,000-a-year players in tennis, was seeded first and Kalo fifth. Fassbender fell victim to Time's posturing and general court behavior in the first set. However, lie settled down in the next one.and appeared iv. control, acta- four points oi the best-of-nine tiebreaker. But Tiriac, .trailing- 3-1, cashed in with tv.o successive services and watched the erratic Fassbender produce two bad shots in a row to lose the decider 5-3. Nastase had trouble with Kalo's heavy service and sound ground strokes, but he pulled off three classical returns of service to break Kalo in the first set and closed it out easily in the second. In the-other singles bracket, sixth-seeded Paul Gerken of Stamford, Conn., qualified to meet Gisbc-t. Gerken out-steadied Pat Cramer of South Africa 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 and second seeded Gisbert provide an fine all-round game to eliminate fourth-seeded Meiler 6-4, 6-4.

One of two banks of lights over the indoor court went out during Laver's match and there were a number of questionable line calls and the latter apparently un-nerved Richey in the second set. Richey, the No. 3 seed from San Angelo, Tex., was leading his Australian opponent 4-0 in the second set when he became upset over one line call in the fifth game. Laver broke Richey's service in that game and went on to take a 5^4 lead before the Texan rallied briefly for a 5-5 tie. The two exchanged service breaks and then Laver won 'the tie-break and the match. The 34-yoaor-old Laver now goes 'agaiast Stata Smith of Pasadena, OaJif., in today's semi-finals. Smith advanced by defeating Ove Bongtoon of Sweden 6-4, 6-3. The other semi-final sees unseeded Jaime Fillol of Chile facing Australian Roy Emerson Fillol qualified by upsetting third-seeded Dick Stockton of San Antonio,.Tex., 6-4, 6-3 while Emerson advanced with a 6-2, 6-3 victory over countryman Allan Stone. r Saturday, February 17, 1973 - THE IETHBRHJGE HERALD ~ J3 Should. Alberta streams be stocked with trout? This question is frequently debated in fish and game circles. Indeed, the Coleman Fish and Game Association has called a meeting just to look into it. The following statement, prepared a few weeks ago by Duane S. Radford, regional fishery biologist for the provincial government, gives the answer. ASHBEE SIDELINED PHILADELPHIA (AP) - De-fenceman Barry Ashbee of the National Hockey League's Philadelphia Flyers will be sidelined two to three weeks because of tors knee ligaments, the club announced Friday. Ashbee was injured Thursday night against Boston, his first game since being suspended eight days for swinging at a referee. ALBERTA TEACHER'S ASSOCIATION SOUTH WESTERN CONVENTION Dear Parents: Students attepding schools in the Crowsnest Pass, Pincher Creek, Cardston, Warner, Taber, the county of Lethbridge and the city of Lethbridge will have a two-day holiday on Thursday, February 22 and Friday, February 23. However, teachers will all attend the Convention in an effort to gain something for themselves which may be shared with the students on* their return to the classroom. The main segments of the Convention will be held at the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute, the theme this year being "EDUCATION IS LIVING". Because of the many and varied aspects of such a convention several sessions will be held at schools in the immediate vicinity of the Collegiate. .We take this opportunity of inviting you as parents to come and join- any session in which you are interested. Parents share with the school the tremendous task of providing learning experiences for the student, so take advantage of this opportunity.

C.C.H.S. FRIDAY AFTERNOON FEBRUARY 23rd: 2:00 p.m. -Dr. Leon Jakobovits "NEW DIRECTIONS IN TEACHING: A TRANSACTIONAL APPROACH L.C.L Alberts, anglers often ask personnel of the Alberta Fish and Wildlife Division why our streams are not stocked '.vith trewt to provide hotter fishing and greater catches. Our reply is that wc do not recommend t iv at streams which contain wild trout be stocked because this practice dees not result in improved fishing and may in fact result in less fishing opportunities. The only exceptions are those instances where it is considered desirable to introduce a new species (such as brown trout), where suitable trout waters (above falls or dams) contain no trout, or where beaver dams have in-terferred with natural reproduction. This policy is based on the results of a number of studies on the effects of stocking trout in Alberta' streams and elsewhere. It has invariably been found that the use of fry or fingerlings is of no significant value in improving the catch oi trout in streams containing Dr.. Martin Paetz, . chief fishery biologist, found that returns of. (rainbow troutl yearlings planted in the Car-bondale River in southern Alberta in 1959 and 1960 were only 34 and 14 per cent, respectively; he concluded that the recovery in neither case was sufficiently large to justify the stocking of catchable trout in the Carbondale River unless fishing pressure increased considerably. Recovery of these rainbow trout the year after stocking was low (only 5.6 per cent of the number of trout planted). In another Alberta study designed to measure the effect of stocking both finger-ling and yearling rainbow trout in a stream, E. B. Cun-sungham (then working as a fishery biologist out of Calgary) found that the planting of about 6,500 hatchery fish in 1960 and 19S1 ir. Jumping Pound Creek, west of Calgary, had little effect on the anglers' catch. Only 3.2 per cent of all fish oaught were of hatchery origin. Only 2.8 per cent of the yearling trout Dennis McDonald, formerly also the. regional fishery biologist at Calgary, recorded a 74.3 per cent degree of recovery of tagged catchable-size rainbow trout stocked in the Elbow River below ti� Glen-more Reservoir in Calgary. Carry-over to the next year of the study was insignificant, however. This high return could.be attributed to several factors. Tins section of the Elbow River was subjected to extensive angling pressure because the fact that fairly large trout had been stocked was well publicized; the Elbow River does not contain a large number of native trout which would compete with, the- hatchery - reared catch-ables and the river flows through the heart of a city with a population of over 400,-000 people. However, In a five-year study'on the effects of stocking cafchafole trout (seven inches or longer) in wild trout streams in Montana, Dick Vincent (a fishery biologist working for the Montana State Fish and Gamo Commission), has found that this practice is a waste of sportsmen's dollars and actually provides fewer year-round fJsMng opportunities for anglers. Vincent has concluded that although Montana's catchable program does put more fish into the angler's creel, it does so by decreasing the number of more desirable, wild trout in the stream and the creel, reducing both the total pounds of trout taken and their average size. The reason for this phenomenon seems to be that hatchery fish, because of their sheer numbers, displace native trout from their territories, thereby decreasing their chance for survival. Because haitehery fish do not usually live .long after release in streams (70 par cent die within 4 weeks, 95 per cent within 12 weeks) what eventually results is -a net loss of catchable fish. wild trout. The use of catch-able-size trout (six, or more, inches in length) has also generally not improved the sport fishing opportunities of a stream except in special circumstances which will be mentioned later. The late Dr. Richard Miller, of the University of Alberta, found that two- three-year-old hatchery reared cutthroat trout, stocked on a resident population of the same species, in Gorge Creek (a tributary of the Sheep River) showed a general inability to survive unless .they were larger than the native trout. Wild trout used in the same manner showed only a little better reaction than the hatchery fish. However, if hatchery-reared fish were planted in a section of a trout stream from which the resident population had been removed the degree of survival was generally good, probably- because competition from resident trout was lacking. planted in 1960 were recovered by anglers. He concluded that the low rate of return makes the cost of stocking programs, such as this, e::tremely high. The results of a - creel survey Cunningham conducted on the Jumping Pound in 1959 showed that even a relatively poor quality trout stream under heavy fishing pressure can maintain an adequate fish population without the addition of hatchery fish. In an additional study concerning stocking yearling rain-bow trout in the Jumping Pound in 1963 and 1964 Cunningham noted that hatchery fish comprised 16.8 and 19.5 per cent of the catch in each year, respectively. These better rates of recovery were attributed to the time of stocking. The best recoveries occurred when plants were made after mid-July when stream flows were stable and angling pressure greatest. Other fishery biologists have also found that trout stocked in this manner generally yielded the best recovery rates. The wild trout populatton fe reduced and the - hatchery fish suffer high mortality resulting in less fishing potential on an annual basis. The foregoing is a review of some of the experimental work on which our present stream management policy is based. There are, however, some exceptions made, jin-der the circumstances previously described, in wMeh better fishing' opportunities can be created in our streams through the use of haitehery trout. Home clubs in Friday action By THE CANADIAN PRESS Both home teams were victorious in the only two games scheduled in the Western Canada Hockey League. Friday night. Calgary Centennials triumphed 5-2 over Edmonton Oil Kings in a rough game that left Edmonton's first-place standing in the Western Division unchanged. Regina Pats defeated Swift Current Broncos 6-2 in another hard-hitting bout to strengthen their hold on fourth place in the Eastern Division. The Centennials extended their home-ice unbeaten streak to 12 games in the contest, marred by 33 penalties and a third-period brawl. Scoring for Calgary were Russ Wiechnik, Mike Rogers, Mike Clarke, Don Ashby and Timber Peck. Fred Comrie and John-Rogers replied for the Oil Kings. Ed Staniowski was spectacular in the Regina nets, blanking the Broncos through the first 40 minutes of play. Dennis Sobchuk led scoring for the winners with two points..
