The opening night of the Whoop-Up Days rodeo found the competition to the steer wrest- ling event almost unbelievable.

It's a tiny plankton-like water creature that Is a favorite food with trout. It was first found in the waters of Waterton Lake in Waterton Lakes National Park many years ago. In fact Waterton is still one of the main sources of supply in North America for mysis relecta. Years ago biologists of the United States wildlife service heard about the abundance of mysis relecta in Waterton. Application was made to Ottawa and soon tub fulls of mysis relecta were being netted out of Waterton and transported and stocked ift lakes throughout the western United States. Lake Taho, of movie star fame, has been stocked on several occasions with mysis relecta out of Water- ton. It was recently brought to the attention of the Waterton Lakes Chamber of Commerce that Utah state now also wants a piece of the mysis relecta action from Waterton and Ottawa has approved the application. What the Waterton Lakes Chamber of Commerce also discovered is that if the state of Utah had ap- plied to Washington to take mysis relecta out of the American side of Waterton Lakes, the application would have been refused. A delegation from the Waterton Chamber recently visited the Columbia Falls Chamber in Montana and it was decided that both the Canadian and American governments would be notified and Ottawa would be asked to stop the fret exports of mysis relecta. They want the exports stopped at least until a marine study of the lake is completed and the results made public. Nothing is really known about mysis relecta its breeding habits, what makes it flourish, what other enemies it has besides trout, and how is the population of mysis relecta doing in Waterton? If the studies show there's still an abundance of mysis relecta in Waterton, the chamber says it prob- ably won't be too concerned. But, the chamber also says, what about something in return? Fingerling trout from the U.S. fish and wildlife service for example. The strange part still is that in Waterton you are in contravention of the National Parks Act if you so much as dip up a worm out of the ground. But, it's okay to ship mysis relecta south of the border. On the south end of Waterton Lakes (the American you contravene the national park act if you dig up a worm or catch mysis relecta. The Waterton and Columbia Falls chambers would like the two governments to conduct a joint study on mysis relecta. The first pressure is to cancel the permit granted to Utah.

In the only other National League games, Pittsburgh Pir- ates won 6-5 over Atlanta and Houston Astros edged St. Louis Cardinals 3-2. As a newcomer, Kansas City Royals had a fine first meeting with Baltimore Orioles. That first meeting was back on May 9, 1969, and after the usual Introductions, the expan- sion Royals and Dick Drago went out and beat the powerful Orioles. The Royals must have been happy to sec the Orioles again the next night, but it wasn't the same, and hasn't been since. Baltimore won that game and went on to win the next 19 after that, including a 5-4 decision Thursday night in Kansas City. Elsewhere on a light baseball night, Minnesota Twins beat De- troit Tigers 2-1 and Cleveland Indians upended Chicago White Sox 5-2 at night in the American 11 League and California Angels stopped Boston Red Sox 4-1 in the afternoon.
