THAT all the furore has broken loose over the happenings al Tyrells Lake during the past year, additional information is beirrg offered for the nonbe- liovers. "Too many people are asking if the disappearance of trout is something according to R. S. Hartford, regional fisheries biologist for southern Alberta. "And none of this should be taken on a personal basis. It's too bad the die-off of trout has had lo happen, but it should all be very impersonal." More than 1.000.000 trout were stocked in Tyrrels Lake in 1970. The biologists had the lake sampled and tested. CONCLUSIONS AT PRESENT show that out of the total, only about 6.000 trout are left alive. What hap- pened to the rest is anyone's guess for the moment. The biologists feel the oxygen content was too saline and there were other factors that contributed to the high mortality. The biologists report that at the same time there was some exceptionally warm water in the lake and there were a host of oilier contributing factors. Regardless of what the guesfimates might he, we'll have to wait until next spring until the biolo- gists take another sampling of the lake and hopefully, the water in the lake. NEVERTHELESS, it's fishing time again. The warmer weather has brought the trout out An 11 and a 13-pound ling or bullhead has been taken out of Jensen Reservoir. For a ling, thai is big in any man's language. The road into Police Lake has been opened. It has perhaps some of the best trout fishing in southern Alberta. Beauvais Lake west of Pincher Creek has picked up considerably during the past week. The snow depth is said to be away down. The other good trout spot in southern Alberta is Chain Lake west of Nanton. While it is said to be good, it is slow in comparison witli other water im- poundments in Ihe south. The lunkers have started lo show up in the 11 pounds plus class al Cavan Lake, north-east of Med- icine Hat. They are in the 10-pound-plus category. The Brooks Fish and Game Club will hold a fish derby under sponsorship of the older members. The outing is planned for Feb. 20. Hot dogs and hot chocolate will he served free.

'One of our troubles is that some of the guys drc Lryinfi hard, some aren't trying enough.

He added that right winger Ron Ellis is taking loo much blame for the team's troubles, saying "not oven Ronnie can score gnrls if nobody gives him Ihe puck." Toronto has lost 12 of its lasl. Ifi games and is tied for the fourth and final playoff position in fhe league's East Division with Detroit Red Wings, who have two games in band.

(CP) A rela- tively unknown look a step up Thursday while two leading skiers slackened their grip on the lop ranks in World Cup men's competition at Mount Norquay. The up-and coming unknown was Enlr Haaker of Norway, who posted a time of one min- ute, 24.511 seconds in the tirst of two runs in the men's giant sla- lom. The second run was to be held this aflemoon. Henri Duvillard of France and Gustavo Thoeni of Italy, how- ever, emerged from the opening round a bit tarnished. Duvillard, the series leader after 13 of the 20 meets, finished ISth while Thoeni. the giant slalom gold medallist at the recent Winter Olympics, was 28th. The main problem was soft, snow which fell overnight Tuesday. Despite many hours o[ feverish activity to get the 41- gale course in shape for Ihe race, it was so badly chopped- up by the first 15 of Ihe 69 starters that the race commit- tee almost cancelled the event. The olhers in the top 10 after the first run were, in order of placing: Roger Rossat-Mignod, France; Edmund Bmggmann, Switzerland; Christian Neu- reuther, Germany; "Eber- ardo Schmalzl, Italy; his ijder cousin Helmut Schmalzl, Italy; Jean-Noel Augert France; Wer- ner Matlle, Switzerland, Rein- hard Tritscher, Austria, and Harald Rofner, also of Austria.

Today was expected to be dif- ferent, when the starling order, in accordance with Interna- tional Ski Federation regula- tions, must be reversed.
