Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 18, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta v, July I _ THE IETHBRIDOB HCRAID 11 x-'< 1 f the Lethbridge Native Sons, B League play- Smith, the ien his charges host Part Of Medal Winning Relay r 4 1 flf.

Anybody seemed to have a chance in weightUfttag and other events were not far enough advanced for any trend to Shapes But Friday's opening events' set the pattern for a two-day struggle in the pool that promises to continue all week. The Australians drew first blood with a narrow victory over Canada in the 400-metre freestyle relay in a contest embittered by a pre-race squabble betwen officials of the two teams over lane assignments. Canada expected to get that gold medal back today in the women's springboard diving. After seven preliminary dives, Beverly Boys of Pickering, Ont., led by a wide margin with team-mates Liz Carmthers of Edmonton and Nancy Robertson of Pickering in third and fifth place. REST NOT IN Qualifying heats heading t o today's swimming finals produced fields packed with Australians and Canadians competing with each other for the fastest times. Apart from an occasional English threat, the rest of the Commonwealth barely had a look-in. A key contest shaped up in the men's 200 freestyle between Mike Wenden, Australian holder of the world record tor 100 metres, and Ralph Hutton of Ocean Falls, B.C., who formerly held the world mark at 400. Wenden was the fastest quali-fyier but the versatile Hutton, who also swims butterfly and backstroke events, was just coasting. "I feel Wenden said Friday night after his strong anchor leg broke up the thight battle in the freestyle relay. "It should be a great said Hutton, who blamed himself for a slow start on the opening leg of the relay. He also had memories of the 1966 Games when he swam in five finals in individual events, finishing second in three and third hi the others. His only gold medal came hi a relay. Bill Mahony of New Westminster, B.C., qualified with the fastest time in the men's 200 breatstroke and George Smith of Edmonton, a heat winner, led three Canadians into the final of the 400 individual medley. FAMILY AFFAIR George Smith's sisters, Sue and Sandra, also qualified for finals, Sue making" it in the 200 invidiaual medley and Sandra in the 800 freestyle, Angela Coughlan of Burlington, Ont, won heats in the 100 and 400 freestyle and Sylvia Dockerill of Vancouver won a heat in the women's 100 breast-stroke. A successful Canadian protest backfired in the 400 freestyle relay final. Originally, two qualifying heats had been scheduled in, the event since there were nine entries and only eight lanes in the pool. Withdrawal of the Papaun team made heats- At (CP) A rousing battle between Australia and Canada for supremacy in the Commonwealth Games poo shapped up today as eight golc medals in swimming and diving went on the line. African and West Indian sprinters appeared to have Stops Ri REGINA (CP) Hamilton Tiger-Cats, with second-string quarterback John Eckman at ihe controls, defeated Sasfcat-chewan Roughriders 27-15 in an exhibition Canadian Football League game before fans Friday night. Joe Zuger injured his hand in practice Tuesday night but Eckman filled hit admirably, completing seven of 16 passing attempts for a total gain of 170 yards, compared with Roughriders' six-for-21 and 132 yards gained. LANCASTER STARTS IT Veteran quarterback Ron Lancaster guided Saskatchewan to a 14-11 lead at the end of the first quarter, then turned over duties to newcomers John Foru-ria and Terry Southall for the balance of the game. Foruria and Southall both tailed in dismal passing performances, one completion for four attempts and three for 12, respectively, and each had too throws intercepted. Jack Abendschan kicked two converts and added1 a single on a wide field goal attempt from the 37 in the fourth quarter for Saskatchewan. A light rainfall began half-way through the third quarter and turned into a downpour by the game's end. For Hamilton, Tommy Joe Coffey booted two converts and two field goals, the second Club ders up by an 'off-beat play who. field goal try from the 36 hung up in a 17-mile-an-hour wind and bounced short and he recovered the ball himself on the 17. Doug Mitchell rounded out the Tiger-Cats scoring with a single in the first quarter on a kickoff that bounced deep into the end zone, where Silas McKinnie conceded. Hamilton got 22 first downs in the game, compared with rune for Saskatchewan, and out-rushed Roughriders 251 yards to 93, thanks mostly to Betha's 109 yards in 11 carries. SALMON stocked in Fort Peck Reser-voir in northern Montana a year ago are showing up strong and fat in fishermen creels. Salmon released at 5 to 6 inches last June are now running 16 to 18 inches long and weigh out from 1V4 to 1% pounds, according to Art Whitney, fisheries division chief for the state's fish and game department. Most of the action has been near the face of Fort Peck Dam, but fishermen are discovering that the silvery fish are hitting in other parts of the lake also. The Pines area is now becoming another salmon hot spot. Red and white lures seem to be the most successful hardware. Coho were released at three separate sites last year in order to determine which planting method would be most successful. Two releases were made far upstream in the Marias and Missouri Rivers and the third release of larger fish was made directly into Fort Peck's Big Dry arm. Most of the fish being caught now are from the Big Dry plant, though some of the ones planted far upstream are also being caught. Under natural conditions, coho live their adult lives in the Pacific. During the fall of their third year they return to fresh water streams where they spawn in clean gravel and then die. When' 'the young hatch the following spring, instinct leads them downstream to the ocean where the life cycle is repeated. Even though hatchery-reared coho retain the inborn urge to travel, their wanderlust wanes as they grow older. Apparently the most successful method of lake planting, in Fort Peck at least, is to put them directly into the lake after they've outgrown their yen to find the sea. Some sleek fingerling salmon were released in Fort Peck Reservoir in May of this year. NO MORE DDT Olin Corporation, parent company of Winchester Armo, is going out of the DDT business at the end of this month. The decision to halt production at a plant which it leases from the U.S. government at Redstone Arsenal near Huntsville, Alabama, was reached by Olin on May 12, but could not be announced until negotiations were completed with the government on the plant shutdown. These were completed on June 5. In deciding to close this plant, its only DDT operation, Olin said it had carefully considered the need for DDT in disease control by underdeveloped nations, the ecological effects of DDT in the Huntsville area, and Olin's own policies. "Our policy in all of our operations is to conform not only with present environmental standards but with those we believe will be in effect in said Gordon Grand, president and chief executive FANS!

His previous high offer was a day. In return, the players agreed to pay an undisclosed amount for each meal they eat at the training camp facilities provided by the club. General manager Frank Clair said the settlement didn't meet the full objections of some the players "but the team as a whole accepted it." He said the dispute shouldn't affect the players' morale. "They want to play football and are anxious to play against Montreal Alouettes here next Clair said. Defensive halfback Billy Van Burkleo, one of the player representatives, said tlie settlement was in line with the agreement reached early this month be-ween all of the Canadian Football League clubs and the CFL players emissions to 10 parts per billion parts of water. Olin stated that it was operating substantially below these limits. However, conservationists had sought stricter standards to protect wildlife in the nearby Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge. In telegrams sent to conservation groups that had moved on June 5, to force a halt in DDT emissions, Olin announced that the decision already had been made to close the plant. More than half of the production of the Huntsville plant was shipped to underdeveloped nations for use in controlling malaria and other diseases. Olin said that these needs can be provided by other U.S. facilities and foreign suppliers. The Huntsville plant began production in 1948 when it was operated by Calabama Chemical Company which was acquired by Olin in 1954.
