A volunteer clean-up crew is still required to clean off the broken bottles, cans, paper and other junk from the shoreline of the lake and also from the lake bottom along the shoreline. Perhaps our magistrates could come to the res- cue.

Open Friday 'lit 9 p.m. SHOES Subscribers come first TORONTO (CP) Harold Ballard's generous offer to pro- vide Maple Leaf Gardens free for (he scheduled Canada-Rus- sia hockey game here in Sep- tember needn't be misconstrued by the Gardens' loyal fans that he's forgotten about them. Ballard, chief executive offi- cer of the Gardens and Toronto Maple Leafs of (he National Hockey League, meets today with Hockey Canada's Douglas Fisher and Allan Scott to decide distribution of tickets to the first of four Canadian games Sept. 2. Ballard wants to give sub- scribers to Leaf games first chance at the tickets. "I'm trying to keep enough seats to look after Bal- lard declared Thursday. "There arc subscribers, and I want to have enough seats so there are two available for each subscriber." Scott, however, had a differ- ent version as to how the tickets should he distributed. "We think a significant por- tion of the seats belong to the Canadian public because of the very substantial amounts of money that have come into Hockey Canada from the tax- paying public and through pub- lic donations." Scott didn't disclose what he felt would be fair share to the general public, merely signify- ing: "I'll do my negotiating in the meeting." He did say, however, that there was more than the Cana- dian hockey fans to consider. "Air Canada tells us there are easily people from Europe and thi> United States coming. "Another consideration is that Russia is providing us with seats for their games (in a arena) and we'll have to reciprocate." Maple Leaf Gardens' seating capacity for hockey is listed at Ballard. meanwhile, is more concerned about the paying sub- scriber at Maple Leaf Gardens. "The subscribers are hockey nuts to begin with. I think they have more right to see this game than fair-weather fans, people who consider themselves hockey nuts but never show up for a junior hockey game on a Sunday afternoon." Hockey Canada Is controlling tickets sales at Winnipeg and Vancouver where the arenas are publicly-owned. Kishcr and Scott were ap- pointed to negotiate with Ihe Gardens and Montreal Forum.
