Wednesday evening before better than 500 fans at the Lcthbridge Arena the Univer- sity of Lelhbridge Chinooks found this to be true, Chinooks, who trailed the best-of-seven City Recreation League final 2-0 at one stage, had built up a S-2 lead in games heading into Wednes- day's game. One of the keys to their1 success was keeping high-scoring Stan Maxwell off the ecoresheet for three games. Last nigtit Maxwell got loose m four occasions and as a re- sult the Labor dub won 6-2 to force a seventh deciding game tonight at the Arena at eight o'clock. Chinooks had kept a constant check on Maxwell and it had proven successful. It was suc- cessful to a degree Wednesday as he was allowed just four shots on goal, but all four counted. Labor Club, first place finish- ers fa the league, were never beaded as they led 2-0 after the [irst period. The two clubs !ought through a scoreless sec- ond period and the winners out- scored the Chinooks 4-2 in the liird period. Maxwell scored twice In the first period and twice in the final 20 minutes.

Chefs, who were once on the rerge of elimination trailing in a bcst-of-seven final, stopped Circle Hill Coronas 8-4 lo win the series 4-3. Circle Hill made the Chefs battle all the way but three un- answered goals in the final jeriod turned the trick for the 3hefs who finished first in the ive-team league. The Goruk brothers, Gordon and Bill, paced the Chefs at- tack with a pair of markers each while singletons went to Dennis Nessman, Andy Konno, Paul Gregus and Ewan McKen- zie. Randy Jfowg, Birch Egelar.d, Dale Hagen and Howard Paint- er replied for the Coronas. Circle Hill got the nod of eight of 15 minor penalties in the game.

The two clubs mil meet Saturday night in Vauxhall al in the first game of a two-game, total- point series. By THE CANADIAN PRESS Boston Bruins, leaders in the lijit Eastern Division of the muonal Hockey League, have had little luck on the road this season against teams in their own division. But with the regular schedule drawing to a close and the final playoff spots still not settled, the Bruins came through with a key 3-1 victory Wednesday night over the Rangers in New York. The victory was the Bruins' first in 17 games on the home ice of an eastern opponent and it moved them three points ahead of second-place Chicago Black Hawks, idle Wednesday. The Hawks, however, have a game in hand. The Bruins, who have picked up more than half of their 93 points against the weaker West- em Division with 26 wins in 36 lost five games remaining in the sched- ule aid all are against east- ern teams. One of these games is against Montreal Canadiens, who moved into third place Wednes- day night with a 5-2 win over last-place Toronto Maple Leafs. The victory' gave the Canadiens B9 points, four out of first place but two more than fourth-place Detroit Red Wings who were idle Wednesday and meet the Hawks tonight in Detroit. WEST TEAMS BATTLE In the West, although Use race for playoff positions is not as torrid, there is still a battle going on for the fourth and last playoff spot. Oakland Seals moved into that position Wednesday with a 3-2 win over Philadelphia Flyers that gave them one point more than Minnesota North Mara who tost 2-0 to Pittsburgh Penguins. Pittsburgh's win moved the Penguins Into second place with 59 points, one more than Phila- delphia. St. Louis Blues already have won the western title. The Rangen, first most of the season, now may end up without a playoff berth. They now have woo only one game in the last 13 and are eight points off the pace. Power-play goals by Phil Es- posito and John Bucyk 71 sec- onds apart in the first period gave the Bruins an early lead and turned out to be enough to bold off the Raagen. Esposito's goal, his 39th of the season, came on a deflection while two Rangers were in the penalty boi. Bucyk then scored his 31st with Boston still enjoy- ing a one-man edge. Derek Sanderson scored the other Bos- ton goal with New York enjoy- ing a man advantage. Orland Kurteobacb, who be- came embroiled in a bitUe with Sanderson, scored Kew York's goal.

Discussing what farmers do with unused seed grain treated with mercurial compound seed dressing, Mr. Potter said: 1 Two farmers said they feed their surplus treated grain to the cliickens. 2 Two farmers admitted they diluted the treated grain with untreated grain and fed it to catfle. 3 One farmer said that certain amounts of untreated grain was mixed with other grain and ground into chop for hogs. 4 Other farmers suggested they disposed ot it in the usual manner that of garbage dump over coulee banks, or just thrown away along some unused road allowance. Mr. Potter also said it was encouraging to talk to a few farmers who actually did care about treated waste grain, Their methods of disposal varied from burning the grain to burying it. The above mentioned is repeated because it was suggested to us that in last week's column we tend- ed to indicate that all farmers "don't care" about how they dispose of unused treated seed grain. To some farmers we apologizo some do care, but, so far at least, far too few have cared. SOME WEEKS BACK we reported on some of the proceedings at the 41st annual convention of the Alberta Fish' and Game Association held in Edmon- ton. Dr. J. Donovan Ross, minister of lands and forests, told the convention that as of this year those 65 years and over will no longer be required to purchase a fishing licence. Since we reported that, many senior have welcomed the news; others have held with dis- belief. Dr. Ross's address is contained in the trans- cript of proceedings of the convention. The indication to this column was, and Is, that the department of lands and forests will no longer demand an angling licence from those 65 and over starting with the new season April 1. So far, we have seen no legislation to that effect. In fact, a check with the local fish and wild- life office, shows that the 1970-71 angling licences have been in for some time, but there are no regula- tions out yet. Nor have we seen any changes in the Act, or regulations announced in the Alberta Gazette. As a matter of interest, two weeks ago, we re- ceived the regulations for Montana's hunting seasons for next fall. We also received offical information on some of the .fee and licence schedule changes to be made by Alberta for hunting next fall. But, information on the new angling season for Alberta, less than a week away, is not out yet. DON'T HOLD YOUR BREATH waiting for the Alberta Wilderness Act. Word is that it is to be given first reading only in the legislature this year. The government appears to be very confused as to what's wanted in the act, so it will let it be "white papered around" at least until 1971. Some people don't want even fire porteclion In a wilderness area. Let nature take her course. Others don't want any mining operation. Soms don't want motorized vehicles in a wilderness area. And, we suspect, some people don't want a wilderness act. goals, paced the Canadiens over Toronlo before f ai3 at the Forum. They were his 16th sod 17th goals of the season wbilt his liuemates, right winger Bobby Rousseau and centra Ralph Backslrom, scored one each. Jean Beliveau got the other Canadiens goal Terry Clancy scored both goals for Toronlo In the first pe- riod in the space of nine min- utes. Claude Provost, Montreal's veteran right winger, reached a milestone when he celebrated bis NHL game. He is 13th player now in active rank! to reach the mark. Oakland won its game against Philadelphia on a power-play goal hy J90 Hardy with 12 sec- onds remaining in the game. Earl Ingarfield and Don O'Donoghue also scored for Oakland. Bill Sutherland and Terry Ball scored for Philadel- phia. The Seats have lost only of their last eight games like the other teams in the West five games re- maining in the schedule. The Penguins got goals from Dean Prentice and Hoa Schock to snap a six-game losing streak. Goalie Les B Ink ley blocked 37 sJiols in chulting out the Norlh Stars. Besides the Chicago-Detroit game tonight, one other game- has Philadelphia playing tha Kings at Los Angeles. 1964 FORD COUNmY SQUIRE 10 poiicngtr S399 'Mladelphla....... Oklead Atlwdanca I ll-i!

Not so. A government announcement says coho will be stocked in Cold Lake in May of this year. What's happened is that coho eggs were given to Alberta by the state of Alaska in 1968. The eggs were hatched out at the hatchery and during the past year the young coho were placed in the Raven rearing station. When planted in Cold Lake they will be sniolts five to six inches long. It's proposed that a similar number of Oregon coho will be released in Cold Lake in the spring of 1971. Because of the DDT problem wliich developed in Lake Michigan coho, when the salmon were intro- duced there several years back, DDT levels in Cold Lake were checked. It was found that forage fish fish that the echo would use as food contained .279 parts per million in Cold Lake. In Lake Michigan the forage fish contained 3.89 parts per million DDT.
